Clippers vs 76ers coverage

  • The Clippers (0-10) and the Wizards (0-12) are the only teams without a road win this season.
  • The Sixers have won 5 of their last 6 home games, only losing to Boston.
  • The key to the game is simple: don't let Griffin and Gordon kill you.
  • Griffin is going to be a problem; the Sixers have zero defenders on their roster capable of slowing Blake down. It'll have to be a team effort.
  • Even if Griffin kills the Sixers, they should be able to stifle Eric Goron with a combination of Iguodala, Turner and Holiday.
  • The Clippers have turned the ball over a lot this season, which is good news for the Sixers. Look for them to run like crazy after turnovers.
  • Besides Griffin and Gordon the only advantage the Clippers have is offensive rebounding. Led by Jordan and Griffin they've been a top 10 offensive rebounding team this season. Although the Sixers have been a top 10 defensive rebounding team this season, they were destroyed by the Nets last night.
  • The Nets grabbed 19 ORebs last night (38%), which led to an abysmal DREB% from the Sixers (62%).
  • The Clippers haven't played since Sunday; the Sixers are playing their second of a back-to-back.
  • Enjoy the Blake Griffin show, especially if this is the first time you've seen him.
Prediction: Sixers 98, Clippers 91


Go Sixers!
