LA CLIPPERS (-10.5) over Houston, 106-96. The LA Clippers (49-24 SU, 40-33 ATS, 40-33 O/U) are coming off a 104-102 loss at San Antonio, as 4-point dog on Friday night. The Houston Rockets (39-33 SU, 37-34-1 ATS, 36-36 O/U) are coming off a 103-94 loss at Memphis on Friday night, getting 5. The Clippers have the Rockets' number. They have beaten them five straight times including their win at home on Feb. 13. Blake Griffin led the Clippers with 20 points and 11 rebounds. Houston shot just 5-of-24 from beyond the arc. The Clippers allow just 94.3 points per game, while Houston allows 102.6 points per game and for teams to shoot 45.8 percent from the field and 37.3 percent from three-point range. The Clippers can't afford to keep falling in the West as they are just a 1/2 game up on Memphis for fourth place in the Western Conference. Chris Paul is just a little too quick for Jeremy Lin and will look to penetrate and kick to the shooters. Houston just doesn't match up well with the Clippers.
