Clippers vs Warriors Closes Out NBA Christmas Day Feast

Clippers vs Warriors Closes Out NBA Christmas Day Feast

Golden State Warriors: NBA doormats no more

Largely an afterthought since they joined the crowded California roundball market as the San Francisco Warriors in 1962, Golden State is currently the top team in the NBA. Sprinting out of the starting gate with a 23-4 record, the Warriors are at least three wins ahead of every other team in the league. Led by PG Stephen Curry (23.4 PPG) and SG Klay Thompson (21.6 PPG) Golden State is the third highest scoring squad in the Association as they average 108.1 points per game. In the first of four meetings this season, the Warriors crushed the Clippers 121-104 in Oakland back on November 5, 2014.

Los Angeles Clippers: Playoff contenders in the Western Conference

Following back-to-back titles, the Clippers (19-10) are currently second and sit five games behind the Warriors in the Pacific Division race. Los Angeles is sixth overall in the competitive Western Conference where the top eight teams own a combined 160-70 record - compared to a 137-87 mark posted by the elite eight in the East. Led by PF Blake Griffin (23.1 PPG) and PG Chris Paul (18.1 PPG) the Clippers are right behind the Warriors with a 106.8 PPG average. In what is now a heated in-state rivalry, Los Angeles took out Golden State 4-3 during their high scoring first round NBA playoff battle back in May.

Warriors vs Clippers Game Day Call: NBA schedule makers saved the best for last on the 2014 Christmas Day dance card. TopBet bookmakers probably struggled some with this line as the Clippers are razor thin home chalk in this contest tonight. Both teams are coming off a road loss on Tuesday as the Warriors dropped a 115-105 decision to the Lakers at the Staples Center while the Clippers were clipped 107-104 by the Hawks in Atlanta. We are siding with the better defence here as we wager 500 units on the Golden State slim spread price posted on the TopBet online betting board.
