NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis
Clippers: On a roll using experience
Clippers are a well-rounded defensive unit, allowing just around 103 PPG, which is among the top five least points allowed per game average. They force a ton of turnovers as teams lose possessions 16 times per game against them. Clippers have been stellar on both ends of the floor and their experience is coming in handy.
Bulls: Sprightly and promising
Like the Clippers, the Bulls also pride themselves on their defensive abilities. The team allows just 103.8 PPG which places them in top ten in that regard. On the offensive end, the team scores around 108 PPG which gets the job done mostly due to the discipline on the other hand. The team may be going through an injured phase but the iso-ball of DeRozan and LaVine has proven to be effective.
