Fans will watch Clippers vs. Cavaliers live stream online free coverage in select regions as the 2016 NBA schedule continues. Cleveland is hoping they don’t suffer a similar outcome to their other nationally-televised matchup this past week, a rout at the hands of the visiting Golden State Warriors. Since then, LeBron and company bounced back, winning 91-78 at Brooklyn, while Los Angeles will enter this game off a 140-132 home victory over the Houston Rockets. With their All-Star power forward still sidelined, do Chris Paul and the Clips have enough to contend with a healthy Cavs squad? The 2016 NBA live streaming and televised matchup arrives as part of a TNT doubleheader Thursday night.
According to a Jan. 21 report via ESPN.com, Cleveland recovered from the disappointing beatdown that Golden State gave them at home by winning on the road by 13 points over the Nets. In that game, the Cavs showed their defensive abilities, holding their opponents to just 41.7 percent shooting and a total of 55 points through the first three quarters. LeBron James and Kevin Love both scored 17 points with Kyrie Iriving adding nine. In particular, Love achieved a double-double as he also pulled down 18 boards in the winning effort. The Cavs’ “Big Three” also shot proficiently for the game as they were better than 50 percent for their combined field goal shooting on the floor. They’ll try to bring that type of performance home for their matchup at Quicken Loans Arena, where they’ve gone 15-2 so far this season.
The Clippers will hope for more hot shooting from their guard J.J. Reddick in tonight’s game. Reddick had a career-high 40 points with a franchise-tying nine three point shots made in the game to help Los Angeles take down Houston. The team has been without their superstar power forward Blake Griffin who continues to recover from a partially torn tendon in his left quad. Griffin won’t play on Thursday and is reportedly not going to play Friday against the Knicks, but could return during the team’s current road trip, which is good news for Clippers fans. He currently leads the team in scoring with 23.2 points per game, with the team ranking No. 4 in the league with 104.8 points scored per game.
For the season so far, Los Angeles is 19-18-4 overall against the spread and 9-7-3 ATS on the road while Cleveland is 17-21-2 overall and 8-9-0 ATS at home. In terms of the odds for tonight’s matchup, the Cavaliers are favored by six point favorites to win on the spread and -270 on the moneyline, while the Clippers are +230 underdogs. The over/under points total is set at 202 as of this report. Both teams are considered contenders to win the NBA Championship, with Cleveland at 5 to 2 ranking only second to Golden State (3 to 2). Los Angeles currently carries odds of 20 to 1, ranking them fifth overall amongst all NBA teams.
