THE TEAM NEWS

BROOKLYN NETS

  • Brooklyn are coming off a 104-102 win over the Los Angeles Lakers and that result pushed their winning streak to three games. They are earning good results of late, posting a 4-1 mark over the last five contests overall.
  • Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant remain out for the remainder of the season due to their respective shoulder and Achilles injuries. Garrett Temple has also been sidelined of late with an ankle problem.
  • Spencer Dinwiddie should be a player to watch for the Nets here. The guard has embraced the role as Brooklyn’s main scoring asset, and he should be the team’s top player until the end of the season. He is averaging 20.6 points per season this term.

LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS

  • Los Angeles are coming off a 131-107 win over the depleted Golden State Warriors and have gone 4-1 during the last five contests. The California-based franchise is certainly trending in the right direction with only a few games left in the regular season.
  • The Clippers will be at full strength here, which is probably a good thing considering they have been dealing with injuries all season long. At least from a Clippers perspective, the best possible news would be to have Kawhi Leonard, Paul George and the rest of the team healthy come April.
  • Kawhi Leonard has been the team’s best player all season long, and the former Toronto Raptors star is coming off a 23-point effort against the Golden State Warriors. He is averaging 26.9 points in 36.6 minutes this term.

THE PREDICTION

If we look at the recent records, then the Clippers and the Nets are both trending in the right directions since both have gone 4-1 over the last five games. That said, the Clippers should undoubtedly be treated as favourites entering this matchup. They are playing at home, where they own a Conference-best 27-7 mark in the Western Conference, and the Nets have been rather pedestrian when playing on the road with a 18-14 record.
