The Los Angeles Clippers will take on the Orlando Magic at the Amway Center on Wednesday (December 7) in NBA Regular Season action.
The 14-11 Clippers have been very solid recently. They have won six of their last 10 as they climb up to sixth place in the Western Conference standings.
They come into this game on the back of a 119-117 win over the Hornets in their last game. It was a very nervy game, which the Clippers led for the first half but let it slip in the third period. But then an insane game-winner by Kawhi Leonard gave them the result.
Paul George has been phenomenal for the Clippers’ offense this season. The Clippers’ defense has been superb this season, conceding only 109 points per game which ranks them in the top five in the NBA. George has averaged nearly 23.4 points per game thus far on 59% true shooting in addition to six rebounds and five assists.
The 5-20 Magic have been terrible this campaign, losing all of their last nine games. They have a very underperforming offense, scoring only 108 points per game, which is the second-lowest tally in the entire NBA. Paolo Banchero has led the scoring for the Magic thus far with 22 points per game.

Clippers vs. Magic Betting Prediction
The Clippers should comfortably win tonight. They have a much stronger squad on paper. The majority of their starting five is still healthy and should start, while that’s not the case for the struggling Magic side. They haven’t won in nine games, and with Kawhi Leonard back in form, the chances for Orlando diminish even further.
