Clippers PG Reggie Jackson is questionable for tonight’s contest with an Achilles injury. Two of their forwards, Marcus Morris and Robert Covington, are listed as questionable to play tonight . Bulls SF Derrick Jones Jr. is probable for an ankle injury, while Marko Simonvic is probable with a neck injury.

Clippers vs. Bulls, 8 p.m. ET
Pick ATS: Clippers -3
Neither Leonard nor George has been listed on the injury report for tonight’s matchup. If the two stars play, they should take care of business tonight. The Clippers were surging with a five-game winning streak before dropping their last game to the Cleveland Cavaliers. During their five-game streak they would have covered this number each time. On the season, Clippers are 26-27 against the spread but should handle the Bulls here.
Over/Under: Under 226
The average point total at the United Center is 228.3. The Clippers are 24-29 against the over this season, while the Bulls are 23-25-1. It’s clear neither team has been good against the total this season. The Bulls have an offensive rating of 113.5, which ranks 19th in the league. They average about 114 points per game. The Clippers average 110 points per game, but number is higher with both Leonard and George in the line. On the flip side, LA’s defensive rating is higher. Take the under to be safe
