Warriors guards Chris Paul (lower leg) and Gary Payton II (right calf) will both miss Saturday’s game against the Clippers. Paul is leading the Warriors in assists with 7.3 dimes per game this year.
Los Angeles Clippers Daily Fantasy Spin
Clippers center Ivica Zubac was great in his team’s 120-114 road loss to Golden State on Thursday. In that game, the 7-footer scored 18 points on 7 of 11 shooting from the floor and pulled down a team-high 13 rebounds.
L.A. forward Kawhi Leonard was efficient in his team’s loss on Thursday. The San Diego State alum poured in 23 points, while shooting 9 of 17 from the field, 2 of 2 from deep, and 3 of 4 from the free throw line. Leonard rounded out his night with 7 rebounds and 2 steals as well.

Warriors vs. Clippers NBA Prediction:
These two teams just played each other on Thursday night in San Francisco and Golden State secured the home victory 120-114. They’ll have a rematch in L.A. on Saturday afternoon. I like the Warriors in this spot for a couple of reasons. The Clippers have been bad against the West this season as they are 6-9 ATS in conference games so far in 2023. The Clippers also don’t have much of a homecourt advantage as they are only 24-27 ATS as the home team since the start of last season.
Golden State on the other hand is 6-3 ATS as the away team this season and 5-3 ATS as an underdog this year. The Warriors will be getting 5.5 points in Los Angeles on Saturday. I think they’ll cover that number and may even win the game outright. I’m taking Golden State and the points this weekend.
