Golden State vs Clippers: prediction for the NBA fixture
On October 22, a match between Golden State and Clippers will close out the NBA game day. Who will record a victory in Californian derby? The answer is in our prediction.
Golden State Warriors
Golden State didn't lose a single match in the new season. During the preseason Warriors recorded five victories. Moreover, Steve Kerr's men put up a high-scoring performance. They averaged 118 points per game on average.
Warriors also won the first match of the regular season. Two days ago they recorded a victory over Lakers (121:114) at Los Angeles. Jordan Poole put up a great performance in this match. Young player of Golden State scored 20 points in just 25 minutes. Seems like there is new rising star in Warriors' roster.
During the off-season Clippers kept almost the same squad. Their key players are still with the team. Tyronn Lue will rely on Kawhi Leonard and Paul George once again. They will be helped by Reggie Jackson and Eric Bledsoe.
Clippers performed badly in preseason matches. They won only the first match, recording a 103:102 victory over Denver. In other matches Clippers were beaten by Sacramento (98:113), Dallas (114:122) and Minnesota (100:128). But it is not so important in comparision with the regular season.
In three out of five most recent matches Warriors collected no more than 46 rebounds
In 5 out of 6 most recent matches Warriors scored at least 116 points
In the regular season matches Reggie Jackson averages 10,7 points per game
Golden State are staying true to their own style of play. They are not improving their defensive game. But they are extremely good on the offense.
In a match between two offensive teams we shouldn't expect a cautious performance. Opponents should be able to beat the total of 224,5 points.
Our prediction - total over 224,5 points
Prediction: Total over 224,5
