The Los Angeles Clippers will take on the Houston Rockets tonight at the Staples Center. The Clippers are coming off a loss to the San Antonio Spurs, while the Rockets are coming off a victory against the New Orleans Pelicans. Who will win tonight’s game?
The Clippers have a lot of talent on their roster, including All-Star forward Kawhi Leonard and veteran point guardChris Paul. The Rockets are led by All-Star guard James Harden, who is one of the best scorers in the NBA.
The Clippers are the better team on paper, but the Rockets always seem to find a way to win. I’m going to pick the Rockets to win tonight’s game, but it will be close.
