Thursday's NBA Free Pick: Los Angeles Clippers -3

San Antonio vs. LA Clippers, 02/21/2013 22:30
Point Spread: -3/-109 LA Clippers

Thursday's NBA Free Pick: Los Angeles Clippers -3

The Clippers beat the Spurs 106-84 at home on Nov. 7 and shortly came away with a 92-87 win in San Antonio. Los Angeles has simply not forgot about getting swept by the Spurs in last years playoffs. Due to the Clippers struggles without Chris Paul, this team finds itself having to prove that they are one of the elite contenders to win it all. No better time to do that, than a nationally televised game on TNT against the Western Conference leading Spurs. The Clippers have had plenty of time to prepare for this game, as this will be their first time playing since beating the Lakers 125-101 last Thursday. While I don't expect the Clippers to win in a blowout, they should have no trouble covering this small number in front of their home crowd.

Los Angeles is 15-5 in home games when playing 6 or less games over a 14 span in the last three seasons, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games vs a team with a road winning % better than .600 and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Thursday games. San Antonio is just 3-11 ATS in their last 14 games vs a team with a winning % above .600 and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games on Thursday. BET THE CLIPPERS!
