NBA Betting Trends
The Hawks are 5-0 ATS in their last five Saturday games. Atlanta is 1-4 ATS in its last five games overall.
The Clippers are 5-0 ATS in their last five home games. Los Angeles is 4-1 ATS in its last five games versus the Eastern Conference.
Los Angeles still might not be without its Big Two available here as Kawhi Leonard is questionable with a knee ailment. But the Clippers have plenty else in the tank including George as he looked awesome in his first game back from shoulder surgery. The Hawks are without a key piece in the suspended John Collins and I think their struggles continue here in a lopsided loss.
