The Golden State Warriors (9-10) take on the Los Angeles Clippers (8-10) at Arena on Saturday, December 2. The game will tip off at 4 p.m. ET. The Warriors defeated the Clippers 120-114 in the two teams’ last matchup on November 30.

Mason Plumlee (knee) and Brandon Boston Jr (quad) are out for the Clippers, and the Warriors will be missing Gary Payton II (calf) and Chris Paul (leg). Andrew Wiggins (finger) is questionable for Golden State.

The Clippers enter as 5.5-point favorites at DraftKings Sportsbook, with the total set at 229.5. Los Angeles is -218 on the moneyline, while Golden State is +180.

Warriors vs. Clippers, 4 p.m. ET

Pick ATS: Clippers -5.5

The Warriors won by six at home, and I think we’re going to see a similar outcome for the Clippers at home in the follow-up as the teams head to SoCal. The Warriors are missing several key players — especially if Wiggins ends up sitting out — and neither team has played with any consistency this season. The last time the Warriors were able to string together two wins in a row was November 1 & 3. I’ll take the home team to win and cover here.

Over/Under: Over 229.5

The Thursday matchup ended in a total of 234. While this one will be close, I like the over to hit again here. The Clippers are just 6-11-1 on the over this season, but the Warriors are 11-8. Los Angeles’ tough defense did not crack the Warriors on Thursday, despite their injury-plagued roster.
