My Prediction

Both teams want to score a lot of points and make this a fast paced game. Whichever team can get defensive stops will have the best chance at winning.

I think that the game will go back and forth as both teams are evenly matched. However I think with home court advantage the Clippers get the defensive stops and win the game.

Final Score

Clippers: 113
Rockets: 108
