Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Los Angeles Clippers Preview, Prediction, and Pick
There have been some excellent NBA games to this point in the season, and this coming Tuesday we have a game that should get everyone's attention, including the sports bettors out there. In this one, the top two teams in the Western Conference are going to be squaring off when the Oklahoma City Thunder head on the road to play the Los Angeles Clippers. Their current records on Thursday the 17th feature the Thunder with an impressive 31-8 record to hold the top spot, while the Clippers are just behind with a 30-9 record. This is a game featuring some superstars in Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Chris Paul, and Blake Griffin. Tip off for this one is at 10:30pm EST and the game will be played in Los Angeles.

The Thunder are 12-5 on the road, and they also have a player in Durant who is likely to get a ton of votes for Most Valuable Player this season. The talent on the Thunder is major this season and they are gelling as a team as well. I think that the Thunder are likely to be a popular choice to win it all this season, but in order to do that they'll have to beat the other top teams in the West, including that number two seed in the Clippers on Tuesday.
The Clippers are high flying and feature an impressive offense. With Chris Paul and Blake Griffin running this show they are able to not only point some points on the board, but really knock off any team on any night. This team is the team in Los Angeles getting the bulk of the attention right now, and with how talented they are it wouldn't shock me to see them make a deep run in the playoffs, and possibly end up meeting this same Thunder team in the Western Conference Finals.

What a tough call this game will be, as it features two teams who are both looking to prove that they are the best in the Western Conference. They both have a whole lot of talent, and I'm excited to see the point guard match-up between Chris Paul and Russell Westbrook as well. All of the studs on these teams are going to score though, so I'm looking to see which supporting cast can step up the most, and in front of the home crowd I like the Clippers to be able to get the job done in a tight one. I'm taking the Clips to win it by three in front of a rowdy crowd.
Prediction: Los Angeles Clippers- 99 Oklahoma City Thunder- 96
Pick: Los Angeles Clippers
