Points allowed per game: Los Angeles is giving up 92.8 points per outing while the Rockets have allowed 103.3 points on average this season.
Thoughts: The Clippers are coming off a win last night over the Memphis Grizzles while Houston fell to the Philadelphia 76ers in their last contest. The Clippers may struggle; playing road games back to back while the Rockets have been shaky on defense as of late. In the end, I expect Los Angeles to be favored but I’m going with Houston to win a close one tonight.
