Los Angeles Clippers head coach Doc Rivers seems to always have the team in the thick of the playoff hunt only to fall short when it counts the most.

Management decided to part way’s with Blake Griffin along with Chris Paul last season and DeAndre Jordan signed with Dallas in July of 2018. Rivers seems to have the new cast of characters playing with a sense of purpose. Small

Forward Tobias Harris tops the team with a (21.3) ppg scoring average on an offense that averages (116.2) ppg which ranks eighth in the league. The Clipper is especially good shooting from beyond the three-point line as Harris, Gallinari and Lou Williams averaging over 40.0% good enough to be ranked third league-wide as a unit. Even without Griffin and Jordan who were known to be terrific in the post, the Clippers are still among the top ten leading rebounding teams.

In Doc Rivers fashion his team is efficient on defense as opponents are shooting just (43.2%) good enough for fifth in the league.

The Clippers can run with any team in the league except for Golden State; the Clippers play a similar style as Portland with the only thing separating them, and that’s the star power of Portland All-Star guard Damian Lillard.

Bovada.Lv, list the Los Angeles Clippers at +3,000 to win the 2018-19 NBA Western Conference Pacific.

All seems well in the Rose City even after last season’s debacle in the first round of the playoffs. Head Coach Terry Stotts welcomes the challenges of the 2018-19 season with a competitive attitude. He’ll have too as every team in their division is capable of making the 2018 NBA Western Conference finals.

Before the season began, all of the talk surrounding the Northwest division was about the Utah Jazz, but Denver is performing at an elite level so far.

Portland averages (117.3) ppg, seventh in the NBA with Lillard leading the way with (26.7) ppg along with (5.5) assists per contest.

The first round exit against New Orleans the Blazers lost game-one by two points 97-95 but the final three the Pelicans increased their scoring. In game four Portland allowed 131-point which sent them packing for the summer; it also could have been fools gold for New Orleans who’s scoring but are challenged on defense this year.

Stotts has put a premium on defense this season, and it’s paying dividends as the Trailblazers are allowing opponents (107.4) ppg which is sixth league-wide. Portland must continue to play tight defense the way the rest of the division is trending, Denver in particular.

Bovada.Lv, list the Portland Trailblazers at +450 to win the 2018-19 NBA Western Conference Northwest Title.
