Clippers vs Warriors is set to be an exciting NBA Sunday game when the Warriors play their final regular season game in Oakland.
Looking to round out their home record at 30-11 this season, Golden State has one hand on the #1 seed for the NBA Playoffs and it would take a brave bettor to bet against the defending champions.
Standing in their way will be the Clippers, which are looking to hold onto the #6 spot in the Western Conference, with OKC Thunder and San Antonio Spurs right on their hammer.
We have NBA Tips for the big Sunday game.
Sunday April 7, 5:30pm ET @ Oracle Arena, Oakland, CA
LA Clippers Form
The Clippers have exceeded expectations this season with a 47-33 record. Their form has been a little mixed over the last couple of weeks but they are most likely preparing for a first round series against the Houston Rockets.
Recent losses to the Rockets and Lakers won’t give them much confidence coming into this and neither will their most recent game against the Warriors. Clippers lost 112-94 having won their first meeting this season 121-116.
Recent wins for the Clips came against the Cavaliers and Grizzles – two teams that have been very average this season.
A better showing will be needed from LA to beat the Warriors. Lou Williams wasn’t expected to be the team’s leading scorer this season with 20.1 ppg, but he will need to shine against this shooting-heavy GS lineup.
Golden State Warriors Form
The Golden State Warriors haven’t looked as good as they have in previous seasons, losing 24 games and dropping 11 at home. That will mean nothing if they’re to win another NBA title however.
They enter this game on a four-game winning streak having beaten the likes of Hornets, Nuggets, Lakers and Cavaliers.
Tempers have flared recently in regards to the referees, which isn’t smart heading into the playoffs but if the Warriors keep cool heads here, they will be tough to beat.
Warriors have an eight-game lead over LAC in the Pacific standings and they will be looking to notch their third-consecutive win over the Clippers after dropping Game 1.
Oracle Arena will be pumping and the Warriors, which could be missing DeMarcus Cousins, should be too strong.
