Do the Wounded Clippers Stand a Chance?

How the mighty have fallen. The Los Angeles Clippers, a team that’s been plagued by bad luck in the playoffs the last few years, received the worst news possible after a Game 4 first-round loss to the Portland Trail Blazers. The Clips lost both of their All-Stars in Chris Paul and Blake Griffin to injuries and will be forced to carry on with a depleted lineup with the series tied at two games apiece.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Trail Blazers' last six games with a closing total of 197.5 or more.
  • The visiting team is 0-5 SU in its last five games in this matchup.
  • The Clippers were 3-5 SU and ATS, and 7-1 OU without Chris Paul this season.

Just how rough are things for L.A. right now? Here’s their projected starting lineup: Austin Rivers, J.J. Redick, Jeff Green, Luc Mbah A Moute and DeAndre Jordan. The franchise has never advanced past the second round, and it’s going to be extremely tough to buck that trend as a likely date with the Golden State Warriors awaits the winner of this series.

Paul had surgery to repair a hand fracture he sustained in the third quarter of Monday’s 94-84 setback, while Griffin has been ruled out for the remainder of the playoffs after aggravating his left quadriceps tendon.

The good new for Clippers backers is the Blazers have not been successful after covering in their previous game. In Portland’s last 11 after an ATS win, Damian Lillard and company are 3-8 ATS.
