Milwaukee Bucks (10-15) at Los Angeles Clippers (15-10)
NBA Basketball: Wednesday, December 16, 2015 at 10:30 pm (STAPLES Center)
The Line: Los Angeles Clippers -10.5

The Los Angeles Clippers are trending upward and look for their ninth victory in 11 games when they host the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday.

The Clippers have moved up to fourth place in the Western Conference due to the hot stretch and have also won seven consecutive home games against the Bucks.

Los Angeles completed a 4-1 road trip with a 105-103 overtime victory over the Detroit Pistons on Monday as backup shooting guard Jamal Crawford delivered the tiebreaking 3-pointer. “I thought both our coaching staff and the guys on the floor made a lot of cerebral calls and a lot of cerebral plays down the stretch,” shooting guard J.J. Redick told reporters. “First of all, it was resolve and secondly it was really, really strong execution. It’s very promising. It was a very promising win.” Milwaukee is struggling on the road this season and lost their 10th straight away game when they fell 113-95 to the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday in the opener of a four-game road trip.

The outcome was disappointing for the Bucks as it came in their first game since ending Golden State’s historic 24-0 start Saturday in Milwaukee.

The Bucks have lost three of their last four and were embarrassed last night in a 113-95 loss to the lowly Lakers. Michael Carter-Williams led the scoring with 19 points, Khris Middleton added 16 points while Giannis Antetokounmpo had 15, but the Bucks just got manhandled by the Lakers who simply looked like the hungrier team. Greg Monroe was a late scratch for the Bucks after he bumped knees with a teammate at shootaround so he isn’t a certainty for tonight’s game

The Clippers have won eight of their last 10 overall and will be going for a third straight after sneaking past the Pistons in a 105-103 overtime win on Monday. Blake Griffin had a massive game of 34 points on 15 of 30 shooting, JJ Redick added 24 points while Jamal Crawford had 14 points and the game-winning three. With the win, Los Angeles improves to 15-10 on the season and 6-5 on the road.

In ATS trends, the Clippers are 7-18-1 ATS in their last 26 home games and 1-3-3 ATS in their last seven games overall.

Pittsburgh Penguins at Boston Bruins

Pittsburgh Penguins at Boston BruinsCheck WagerWeb and find the best betting site!!!!

The Pittsburgh Penguins will play their second game under new coach Mike Sullivan when they visit theBoston Bruins in the Wednesday Night Rivalry game (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN).

The Penguins named Sullivan as their coach Saturday after firing Mike Johnston. It’s his first job as an NHL coach since being fired by the Bruins after the 2005-06 season. After that, he served as an assistant for three teams before working in player development for the Chicago Blackhawks in 2014-15.

Pittsburgh and Boston had a total of 94 shots on goal Monday, but neither won its game. The Penguins had 45 shots but lost 4-1 to the Washington Capitals in Sullivan’s first game. The Bruins outshot theEdmonton Oilers 49-24 but lost 3-2 in overtime.

The Penguins weren’t the first team to fire their head coach this season but perhaps are the most surprising group to do so as expectations were sky high for them and thoughts of turmoil and personnel changes at this point in the season were certainly not in the cards. However, a 15-11-3 record to start the season that is mired 3-4-3 slump in their last 10 has them playing catch up in the Metro division and at risk of missing the playoffs entirely. The Pens are in further disarray as they will now lean on Jeff Zatkoff in the crease as Marc-Andre Fleury will be out for at least a week and while Zatkoff has proven he can step in and produce victories he is facing a tall task in this one as the Bruins are 6-1-3 in their last 10 games and have been playing very well of late.
The Bruins are a modest 6-7-2 at home this season but their staggering 10-2-2 mark on the road has them in the mix in the Atlantic division and if they can get a win here against a Penguins team dealing with a bag full of issues they should be in the clear to keep their winning ways afloat. Boston is a scary team when they are clicking and while they don’t have some key pieces from their core from the last few seasons they still have plenty of weapons at both ends of the rink and if Tuukka Rask can steal a few games the rest of the way the Bruins could very well challenge for the division crown.

San Jose Sharks at Montreal Canadiens

The San Jose Sharks travel to the Bell Centre to take the ice with the Montreal Canadiens.

The San Jose Sharks have been in struggle mode and need to snap out of their funk soon. The Sharks have dropped six consecutive contests following a 2-0 defeat to the Minnesota Wild on Saturday night. The offense stalled even with Devin Dubnyk out with injury for the Wild. It didn’t matter as Martin Jones and the Sharks defense were left to fend for themselves  but his 28 saves resulted in nothing but a loss with San Jose now standing at 14-14-1. Minnesota snapped a scoreless tie on a tally from Zach Parise at the 4:41 mark of the final frame with an empty netter off the stick of Mikko Koivu ending the drama. Minnesota saw Darcy Kuemper record his 6th career shutout with a 25 save performance to lift the Wild to 15-7-6.

The Montreal Canadiens   put and end to a four game slide with a 3-1 victory versus the Ottawa Senators on Saturday night at the Bell Centre. Max Pacioretty, Brian Flynn scored in the opening frame with Jeff Petry scoring in the second for a 3-0 lead before the Habs turned things over to the defense and goalie Dustin Tokarski  who recorded 25 stops to lift Montreal to 20-8-3. The Ottawa Senators were dominated at both ends of the ice with their lone goal coming off the stick of  Jean-Gabriel Pageau in the second. Craig Anderson allowed all three goals on 31 shots before Chris Dredger came on to stop all eleven shots he faced as the Senators stand at 15-10-5.

The Sharks are 0-6 in their last 6 overall and are 0-4 in their last 4 games playing on 2 days rest while going  0-5 in their last 5 when their opponent allows 2 goals or less in their previous game. The under is 3-0-2 in Canadiens last 5 home games and  is 2-0-2 in Canadiens last 4 vs. a team with a losing record while 4-0-4 in Canadiens last 8 overall. The under is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Montreal and  is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings while the home team is 11-1 in the last 12 meetings.

The Celtics are led by their dynamic backcourt tandem of Isaiah Thomas and Avery Bradley. Thomas averages team-highs in points (20.8) and assists (6.7) per game while Bradley chips in 16.3 points per.

Cavaliers’ probable starting lineup: 6-3 Matthew Dellavedova (8.7 ppg, 5.4 apg), 6-4 Jared Cunningham (3.9 ppg, 1.2 rpg), 6-8 LeBron James (26.4 ppg, 7.7 rpg, 6.4 apg), 6-10 Kevin Love (17.8 ppg, 11.2 rpg) and 7-2 Timofey Mozgov (7.3 ppg, 4.1 rpg).

Edmonton Oilers at Boston Bruins

The Edmonton Oilers make the long trip to TD Garden to face the Boston Bruins.

If you told the Edmonton Oilers they would score seven times versus the visiting Rangers I’m sure they would think they would think they won easily but unfortunately New York still made the Oilers sweat in a 7-5 decision. Lauri Korpikoski logged a hat trick and Taylor scored twice but Anders Nilsson was charged with five goals on 34 shots to still get the win. New York received a pair of goals from Derick Brassard with Chis Kreider, Rick Nash and Mats Zuccarello but Henrik Lundqvist allowed five goals and was replaced in the third with Antti Raanta who gave up a goal on three shots.

Tuukka Rask was outstanding between the pipes with a 26 save performance as the Bruins raised their record to 16-9-3 and Rask upped his record to 14-2-1 against the Panthers. Florida’s lone goal came off the stick of Reilly Smith in the third period but Roberto Luongo couldn’t make it stand up with two goals given up on 24 shots as the Panthers fell to 14-12-4 and are now three points behind Boston in the Atlantic.

Indiana’s 106-99 loss at Toronto on Oct. 28 kicked off an 0-3 start to the season before Paul George heated up and sparked a tear that put the Pacers one-half game behind first-place Cleveland in the Central Division.

The last time these two teams met it was the opening game of the season for both. By night’s end the result of the game would spearhead each teams’ start to the season with the Toronto Raptors going on a 5-0 start while the Pacers lost 3 in a row

The Winnipeg Jets are spending most of a two-week stretch at home and they look forward to putting the time there to good use.

The Jets will begin a back-to-back set Thursday night when they host aColumbus Blue Jackets club that could be without starting goalie Sergei Bobrovsky.

Winnipeg (13-13-2) has three days off before this game before facing Chicago on Friday. The Blackhawks’ game is the only road one for the Jets between Dec. 7-20, and the club feels rested and ready.

The Columbus Blue Jackets have gone from bad to worse over the last couple of days as their starting goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky will be sidelined for at least three weeks with an injury leaving the team’s turn around in the hands of career backup Curtis McElhinney. The Jackets had high hopes coming into this season but things have gone up in flames so far as they sit in dead last in the NHL alongside a few others with a measly 24 points and aren’t showing any signs of turning things around. The Jackets do have a bit of a lieu period at least when it comes to administration as John Tortorella was brought in after the first two weeks of the season and while he can be a little on edge he does have a decent track record and could be the right fit to get this team fired up.
The Jets meanwhile have also struggled to start the year as they sit in sixth place in the Central and are just four points better than the Jackets and in the crazy competitive Central division they are going to be hard pressed to make the playoffs if they can’t right the ship soon. The Jets are 5-5 in their last 10 overall but are 7-4-1 at home this season and while they are typically much better at the MTS Centre than this season’s mark indicates they are still winning games in Winnipeg and should do so again here. The Jets need a big time victory to get rolling and a home date against a struggling Jackets side is the recipe for success.
