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.
