Clippers vs Hawks Free Pick April 24, 2012

April 23, 2012

The Los Angeles Clippers head east one last time for a regular season matchup against the Atlanta Hawks. Both teams have qualified for the playoffs, but both are trying to move up in the standings to get home court advantage. The visiting Clippers are 40-24 on the season and winners of eight of their last 10 games. They are in fourth place in the playoff race just a half game behind the third place Los Angeles Lakers. On the road, the Clippers are 16-15 on the season.

The Hawks are 38-26 on the season and 21-10 at home. Atlanta is 7-3 SU over their last 10 games and is securely in the fifth position in the Eastern Conference playoff race. However, against Western Conference opponents, the Hawks are just 7-9 SU on the season.

Blake Griffin the leading scorer and rebounder for the Clippers has a sore neck, but is listed as day to day and most likely will suit up for this matchup. Over the last 10 games, head to head the Hawks are 7-3 SU against the Clippers. The total in those 10 games has ended OVER 7 times and UNDER 3 times. This season, the teams have met on one occasion. The Clippers beat Atlanta in Los Angeles 96-82 in mid March. In the victory, the Clippers covered a 7-point favorite spread. The total cashed out to the UNDER, but was the first UNDER total in five games.

The Clippers are 4-1 SU in the last five games with only a loss at Phoenix. The Hawks are 3-2 SU in their last five games. They lost to the New York Knicks Sunday by one point in a high scoring shootout.

Both teams are playoff bound and this game is more important to the Clippers for playoff position than the Hawks. The Clippers want to move up to catch the third place Lakers and win a Pacific Division title to go along with third place in the West. Take the Clippers to cover the spread, with the total ending OVER.
