Detroit Pistons vs Los Angeles Clippers
Detroit. Little Caesars Arena
The Pistons and Clippers have had a lot in common in recent years. Blake Griffin continued his career in Detroit after Los Angeles, and Luke Kennard left in the opposite direction a little later. For almost 4 years, the Michiganders have not been able to defeat the Clippers – maybe it will work out now?Claim Your Welcome Bonus!
The Pistons are leading the race for Victor Wembanyama, and this is, in general, all the successes of Detroit at the moment. Michigan lost 8 of the last 9 regular season games: the exception to the rule was the victory over Charlotte. What else can you expect from a pioneer camp with Bojan Bogdanovic? Jalen Duren and Jaden Ivey lack experience and stability, and Isaiah Stewart remains a useless attacking player. Of his virtues, one can single out only a good three, which are now especially appreciated by big men. Code Cunningham dropped out before the end of the season, and Saddiq Bey became another talent that, for some reason, Dwane Casey doesn't need. Rumors about the exchange of Bey have been going around for a long time, now he gets less playing time and comes off the bench. By the way, Detroit already got rid of Bruce Brown and Luke Kennard, who is now playing for the Clippers.
Detroit has already started the match well for the umpteenth time but then lets all its efforts go to the wind. The Pistons led by 8 points in the 1st quarter of the match with Atlanta, and by halftime, they were ahead, but the black hole in the Michigan defense sucked the balls right into the ring. The wards of Dwayne Carey often had time for the arc, and the opponent threw infrequently without any resistance. But from under the ring, Detroit was shipped in full, and the team missed 66 points from the key. The result is 105:130, another crushing defeat of the Pistons.
Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers have needed a tailwind in the last few years. It's too early to declare Los Angeles' championship ambitions because everything will depend on the health of the leaders in the playoffs, but the team is doing well in the regular season. Los Angeles is 5th in the West. It has won 5 victories in 7 matches, and among the defeated was Boston, which until recently was leading in the Eastern Conference.
Looking at the recent changes in the Clippers' rotation, you'd think they were already freaking out with fat once they put Robert Covington on the bench. On the other hand, Kawhi Leonard is gradually returning to its former level, so there is no need for Covington anymore. Terrence Mann is gnawing out an important role for himself, and even Reggie Jackson doesn't spend 30 minutes in the game so often anymore.
In its last match, the California club clashed with its last coach, Doc Rivers, and there was no reception against Kamon, Let's Go. The Clippers lost with a score of 114:119. Kawhi threw his opponent a full-string bag from an average distance of about one point, but his 28 points look modest against the background of performances by younger stars from other teams. Paul George missed a lot from behind the arc, but Norman Powell scored 8 of 13 from the game and scored 21 points. John Wall did not go out, and the Los Angeles rotation consisted of 9 people.
Expert Betting Tips
In the absence of Cade Cunningham, Detroit held a last personal meeting with the Clippers. It was not enough to win just a little bit. To be honest, it's strange to see that the Pistons are losing all the time because, in general, everything is not so terrible, and in places, the team shows nice basketball. Yes, it's a mess under the ring, but Los Angeles often scores only 30 points from the paint. Dwane Casey's wards will be charged for the fight at home, and the main thing is that there is enough concentration for all 48 minutes. The Clippers need a playmaker, John Wall could help, and as it is, the Caliphonians are increasingly dependent on the inspiration of Paul George and Kawhi Leonard.
