In the first quarter of Game 4 everything went wrong for the Clippers as they fell behind by 17 points. Since that time they played a very solid 7 quarters and if not for some very questionable refereeing late in Game 5 they’d be riding a 2-game winning streak. I expect the refs to call a better game in Los Angeles and possibly one that may give the home team a slight bias. The improved play and playing in desperation mode at home should have the Clippers rewarding their backers with a point spread cover in Game 6.
Take the Los Angeles Clippers -5.
