LA Clippers on Short List to Win the West

The LA Clippers and the Portland Trail Blazers square off on Thursday night at Moda Center. Tip-off is set for shortly after 10:30 pm and will be televised nationally by TNT.

Most so-called experts have put the LA Clippers on a short list of contenders to make it to the NBA’s Western Conference finals in 2016. That’s just fine with Doc Rivers, the president of basketball operations and head coach of the Clippers. Doc Rivers has never backed down from a challenge.

With a core of All-Stars like Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan. Then veterans J.J. Redick, Jamal Crawford and Austin Riverscoming off the bench guarantee the Clippers will make some noise.

Oddsmakers currently have the Clippers listed as 3-point favorites versus the Trail Blazers, while the game’s total is sitting at 209.

Portland won its last outing, a 113-104 result against the Utah Jazz on October 25. The Trail Blazers covered in that game as a -6-point favorite, while the 217 combined points took the game OVER the total. Damian Lillard launched an unofficial MVP campaign by scoring 39 points, 16 in the decisive fourth quarter.
