Why Los Angeles Will Win

No bet on this game should ignore the centrality and primacy of the fact that the Clippers possess one of the most efficient offenses in the league. Against the league’s number one field goal percentage defense, it is essential to get high quality shots. Chris Paul continues to represent one of the top floor generals in basketball and will work to get his big men open layups around the hoop. One area in which the Clippers will have an edge is transition offense.

Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan should give aRoy Hibbert and David West fits on the fast break as far more athletic players. Griffin and Jordan should be able to get multiple dunks or easy layups. The Pacers also don’t shoot the ball very well.  With Danny Granger beginning to get back into game shape after returning from an injury, he's not yet ready to play his best. Therefore, the Pacers are void of just about any one-on-one offensive talent. As a result, they have to try and win on the low block.
The Pacers have also been turnover prone this season: they have committed the seventh highest amount of turnovers in the league. The Clippers lead the league in steals behind a relentless backcourt combo of Chris Paul and Eric Bledsoe. The matchup works in L.A.'s favor on a number of levels.

The Clippers get to the line a bunch, shooting the third most free throws in the league. While the Clippers are far from a great free throw-shooting team, the Pacers can’t afford much foul trouble given their personnel.

Why Indiana Will Win

Even mma betting experts know that the Pacers have been exceptional at home this season. The Clippers, while still playing fairly well on the road, have only mustered an 8-8 road record against current playoff teams. On top of that, the Clippers are just 13-8 against the Eastern Conference, a somewhat surprising record when you consider their 27-10 record against the tougher Western Conference.

This game will certainly boil down to the Clippers' offense versus the Pacers' defense, and the Pacers have been exceptional all season in forcing teams into very difficult shots in halfcourt sets. If the Pacers can keep the Clippers out of transition, Los Angeles may wind up settling for long jumpers, the best way to defend the Clippers. Indiana also leads the NBA in rebounding, a key statistic against a Clipper team that is very aggressive on the offensive glass.

The Pacers have been playing about as strong a brand of basketball to kick off the post-All-Star break as anyone in basketball. They have come up with some lopsided wins, including a blowout of the New York Knicks. As a team fighting to hopefully get the second seed in the East, the Pacers have kicked things into a higher gear.

Who Will Win

Look for this game to come down to the final few minutes, as the offense of the Clippers should solve the Pacers' puzzle enough to not let Indiana run away with this contest. Chris Paul and the Clippers' relentless offense will make just enough plays to win.
