Clippers vs Thunder Prediction: Recent Form

LA Clippers

The Clippers started their campaign on a strong note. They first defeated the Lakers in the season opener and continued the same performance against the Kings. But the home loss in the last matchup by a margin of 17 points against the Sun is definitely a sign of concern. The Clippers failed to overcome the deficit from the start. The three-pointer percentage of 28.1% looked disappointing.

Marcus Morris Sr. gave his best for the Clippers and secured 22 points with 5 rebounds. Paul George also played well and finished with 16 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 assists.

Oklahoma City Thunder

The Oklahoma City Thunder looked in promising form in the preseason. They won 3 of the 4 preseason fixtures, However, the Thunder failed to capitalize on it and started the regular season with 3 back-to-back defeats. Oklahoma’s last game ended with a loss to the Timberwolves. Guard Shai-Gilgeous Alexander who was averaging 30 points per game was not playing due to a left hip contusion. The Thunder came close to the Timberwolves in the third quarter and reduced the gap to 5 points. But the late surge in the fourth quarter by Minnesota gave no chance to Oklahoma.

The top performers for the Thunder from the last game were Anthony Edwards and Karl-Anthony Towns. Edwards scored 30 points for his side along with 11 rebounds. Towns finished with 15 points, 8 rebounds, and 5 assists.
