Clippers vs Hornets Prediction on December 22, 2022
Look no further for the most recent Los Angeles Clippers vs. Charlotte Hornets prediction because Bookmaker-Expert has you covered along with the best odds presented at bookmakers with Android apps. The men’s basketball 2022-23 NBA regular season match is scheduled for Wednesday, December 21, at 7:30 p.m. local time (Thursday, December 22, at 6:30 a.m. Moscow time). The duel will set off at the Crypto.com Arena (Los Angeles, California).
The Charlotte Hornets defeated the Sacramento Kings 125-119 on Monday night to snap their dreadful streak of eight straight losses. The Hornets were enormous underdogs going into that game, with odds of 4.75 on average, so the victory came as a surprise. Can they once again defy the odds in their matchup with the Los Angeles Clippers? The last time the Hornets defeated the Clippers was on November 18, 2017. Since then, they have lost nine straight games to the LA club; their most recent defeat came two weeks ago in North Carolina. In a closely contested game, the Clippers prevailed by two points. However, we don’t anticipate it being as tense this time. The problem is that the Los Angeles club experienced some issues with player fitness in the previous Hornets vs. Clippers game. After missing a few games due to injuries, Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, and Luke Kennard weren’t fully healthy for that game. For instance, Leonard missed six games before that match. Key stats Los Angeles Clippers are 18-14 and fifth in the Western Conference, while Charlotte Hornets are 8-23 and 14th in the Eastern Conference. The upcoming duel is a non-conference action. The Clippers have a 10-7 record at home. They average 44.5 rebounds per game, which places them sixth in the Western Conference. With 10.8 boards, Ivica Zubac leads the Clippers. The Hornets have a road record of 4-12. They are outscored by 6.7 points per game while giving up 117.5 points to opponents. Averaging 107.1 points, 47.3 rebounds, 21.2 assists, 6.0 steals, and 4.5 blocks a game, while shooting 42.1% from the field, the Clippers are 5-5 during their previous 10 games. Their rivals have scored 108.8 points each game on average. Despite shooting just 44.2% from the field, the Hornets are 2-8 and averaged 114.1 points, 46.7 rebounds, 23.0 assists, 7.3 steals, and 4.8 blocks per game in the last 10 games. Their rivals have scored 121.8 points on average.
The Clippers will demonstrate on Wednesday night just how much superior they are to the Hornets. They won’t just prevail; we anticipate them to completely wreck the opponent. One of the reasons, despite the current form of the two teams, lies in the fact that the Hornets have numerous injury issues. These players are out: Mark Williams (ankle), Terry Rozier (hip), Cody Martin (quad), and Dennis Smith Jr. (ankle). All in all bet on a double-digit handicap on the Clippers, preferably the one starting with a figure 1 as soon as Bet UK releases the odds for the game.
