The sixth-place Clippers are 31-28, one game behind fourth place and 2.5 games behind teams outside the West’s playoff picture. The ninth-place Warriors are in the middle of that logjam, currently at 29-28 as they continue on without Steph Curry.

The Warriors are in a back-to-back spot Tuesday, defeating Washington 135-126 last night on home court. The win broke a two-game losing skid for Golden State. The Clippers have been off since Friday, losing 119-106 at home to Milwaukee. The loss was L.A.’s second straight at home.

Tip-off at Arena is set for 10 p.m. EST, with L.A. an eight-point favourite at home and the total at 231.5 on the NBA odds.

The road has been a tough spot all season for the Warriors, who are 7-21 away from home this year. L.A.’s only 14-13 at home this season, so they don’t pose a huge home court advantage. Where things get real conflicting is two opposite trends when it comes to the total. So far six of Golden State’s 28 road games have finished under the total. And then five of L.A.’s 27 home games have finished over the total.

Golden State’s also 9-19 against the spread in those 28 away games. The Warriors are on a 2-6 stretch ATS overall, while also covering in just one of their last eight contests against Pacific Division opponents. The Clippers are 4-1 in their last five against Western clubs.

Golden State Warriors

Monday was Andrew Wiggins’ turn to step up alongside Klay Thompson as the duo combined for 56 points in a winning effort. Thompson started off strong, scoring 20 of his 27 points in the first half while Wiggins finished it off with 18 of his team-high 29 in the second half. The Warriors shot nearly 60 per cent from the field and notched their second 135-point game in four games without an injured Steph Curry.

The Warriors remain one of two NBA clubs averaging over 118 points per game this year. Curry’s 29.4 points per game is nearly impossible to make up for, but if the likes of Wiggins and Jordan Poole can put up team-high performances, the Dubs will be just fine.

Los Angeles Clippers

With four days between games, Kawhi Leonard should be good to go Tuesday after sitting out with load management on Friday. Leonard’s now been off since last Wednesday, the first of back-to-back home losses for the Clippers. L.A. averaged 105 points in those defeats, a number that certainly won’t cut it Tuesday against a top offence in Golden State.

The Clippers do enter as a top-five defence though, allowing 111 points a night. Without Leonard on Friday L.A. surrendered 17 three-pointers, and 119 points to the Bucks. Brandon Boston Jr.’s 20 points led the Clippers in otherwise a forgettable game.
