Clippers dominate at Warriors

Los Angeles rolled to a 141-122 victory Thursday night at Golden State to move to 2-0 on the young season. The Clippers led 111-87 through three quarters en route to the decisive victory. Lou Williams led a balanced scoring attack with 22 points off the bench on 5-of-11 shooting including 1-of-3 from 3-point range plus 11-of-11 at the free throw line. He also tallied eight assists and three rebounds. Kawhi Leonard notched 21 points, nine assists and five boards. Patrick Patterson tallied 20 points and three caroms. Montrezl Harrell had 18 points, six rebounds and three dimes as a reserve. Ivica Zubac contributed 16 points, 10 boards and two blocked shots. Landry Shamet recorded 11 points and three assists. Mo Harkless added 10 points, three assists and two rebounds off the bench.

Suns edged in OT

Phoenix lost 108-107 in overtime Friday night at Denver to drop to 1-1 on the season. The Suns outscored the Nuggets 33-31 in the fourth quarter, but were then outscored 13-12 in the extra session. Kelly Oubre Jr. led Phoenix as he tallied 23 points on 7-of-12 shooting including 3-of-5 from 3-point distance and 6-of-6 at the charity stripe. He also registered eight rebounds, two assists and two steals. Frank Kaminsky accounted for 19 points and 11 rebounds off the bench. Devin Booker had 18 points, seven dimes and five boards. Arron Baynes added 15 points, seven caroms and three assists as the starting center filling in for the suspended DeAndre Ayton.

NBA Betting Trends

Los Angeles

The Clippers are 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall. Los Angeles is 35-17 ATS in its last 52 games versus the Pacific Division.

Phoenix

The Suns are 4-0 ATS in their last four games versus the Pacific Division. Phoenix is 4-1 ATS in its last five Saturday games.

Prediction:

Phoenix has actually looked very good in its first two games of the season, the last being without Ayton. This will be a very tough challenge against an LA team on one day of rest, but I like  the Suns to keep this one close as they are playing with real confidence right now and have a floor leader in point guard Ricky Rubio. The Clippers might be in a bit of a letdown spot after opening with a couple big games against the Lakers and the Warriors. I think this one stays close throughout.
