Los Angeles Clippers vs. New York Knicks CashBet Wagering Analysis
Two very defensive teams are set to do battle but the Los Angeles Clippers are far better in the offensive end. This is expected to be a 90s style rag-tag game and expect a lot of stops as both teams like to keep the scores low.
Proving Doubters Wrong
The Los Angeles Clippers are one of the teams that had been notorious in load management last season and that is one of the reasons why the team’s chemistry was not in sync when they came in the playoffs. Both Kawhi Leonard and Paul George have only missed a few games and have been playing together most of the time. They are now the second-best team in the NBA Western Conference and the bitter playoff performance last year is still their biggest motivation to get better. Coach Ty Lue has done a great job on keeping the team on the same page this year.
Good Defense, Bad Offense
The New York Knicks have already embraced the system of Coach Tom Thibodeau and it shows already as the team is now one of the best defensive teams. Even with their defense clicking, the offense needs work and they are also considered as one of the worst in the league. Julius Randle has revitalized his game but it will now depend on how RJ Barrett improves on his role. The Knicks coaching staff has given him the green light to shoot the ball but he has been missing a lot as well. When Barrett is sharp on the offense, the team has a good chance of winning the game and he is expected to be Coach Thib’s next Derrick Rose.
