Both teams play the final matches of the regular season, allowing themselves to experiment with their squad. Therefore, reservists get more playing time. Paul George and Kawhi Lenard at the Clippers and Chris Paul and Shay Gilges-Alexander at Thunder are getting more and more rest to recuperate for the playoffs.
The Clippers sold out in earnest in the previous meeting when they confidently defeated Denver (124-111). The Los Angeles team lost only the second quarter, but very quickly killed the intrigue in the match.
Doc Rivers' charges will face Dallas in the playoffs and this confrontation deserves attention, because the “cowboys” have improved a lot, so there will be something to see.
Billy Donovan's wards beat Miami in the last match, though it was not without luck, because the confrontation ended with a score of 116-115. Darius Bazley was one of the best in the Oklahoma squad, having chalked up 21 points.
In the first series of the playoffs "Thunder" will meet with "Houston". They were frankly unlucky with their opponents, although after the restart of the season any outcome can be expected.
As for Oklahoma, the team is in a similar situation, so no one is going to waste energy. In this case, we offer a bet on a positive handicap "Thunder", because, in our opinion, the game will be held on equal terms.
Our prediction is the victory of Oklahoma City Thunder with a handicap (+7.5) points for a coefficient of 1.65 in BC 1xBet
