Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers get here with a 2-2 record after losing against the Thunder 108-94 in Oklahoma. The Clippers were without their two biggest stars. Kawhi Leonard sat out to rest his right knee and Paul George missed the game with an illness. Another starter, Marcus Morris, was out for personal reasons. Luke Kennard scored 15 points and Ivica Zubac had 10 points and 14 rebounds for the Clippers.
Paul George leads the team averaging 23.7 points, 7.7 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 2 steals over the past 3 games for Los Angeles. Ivica Zubac is leading the team in rebounds with 11.

The team acquired John Wall in the offseason who started in 40 games last season averaging 20.6 points per game and 6.9 assists per game.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder won their first game of the season and are 1-1 at home so far ranking 5th in the Northwest division. In the game vs Clippers Shai Gilgeous-Alexander scored 33 points and Tre Mann scored 16 of his 25 points in the first half.

LA Clippers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games against Oklahoma City.
LA Clippers are 8-4 SU in their last 12 games against Oklahoma City.
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of LA Clippers' last 5 games on the road.
LA Clippers are 1-9 SU in their last 10 games when playing on the road against Oklahoma City.
The total has gone UNDER in 7 of Oklahoma City's last 10 games.
Oklahoma City are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 9 of Oklahoma City's last 13 games against LA Clippers.
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Oklahoma City's last 5 games at home.
The Clippers struggled without their 2 starts Leonard and George against the Thunder who got their best player back in Gilgeous-Alexander. The Thunder were struggling offensively but they looked different with their star back in the game. The Clippers are clearly the better team here but playing on the road is always tough so I think the best play is the under.
