Orlando vs Clippers: prediction for the NBA match
Three days ago Orlando managed to put up a surprise. Magic crushed Chicago at home (114:95). DeMar DeRozan scored 41 points for the Bulls, but it was not enough for the success. A great teamwork brought a victory to the Florida team.
In the upcoming game Orlando will have to play without a number of key players. Michael Carter-Williams will miss the game. It is also uncertain, whether Gary Harris and Terrence Ross will play.
Clippers are still on the verge of dropping from the play-off zone. Tyronn Lue's men are currently at the 9th spot in the Western Conference. This position will let the team to perform in the play-in, but they need to hold on to it.
In the previous match Clippers recorded an away victory over Washington (116:115). Amir Coffey and Luke Kennard put up a great performance in this match. They tallied 54 points, 13 rebounds and seven assists combined. But Reggie Jackson and Ivica Zubac underperformed in this match.
In 3 out of 4 most recent matches Magic failed to win the first quarter
In 3 out of 5 most recent matches Clippers managed to beat that total
Orlando surely performed great in the most recent match, but club is too inconsistent. Magic don't have too many rotation players, so they rarely get any victories. We don't think that team from Florida will record another victory. We think that Clippers will get a victory at Amway Center.
Our prediction - Clippers to win the match (Including OT)
On November, teams played a head-to-head match. They scored 210 points back then. We are expecting another high-scoring game. Teams played well on the offense recently.
Our second bet is on total over 207,5 points
