Tonight’s Action

Los Angeles Clippers at Brooklyn Nets 

Watch: 7:30 p.m. ET, TNT

Odds: Clippers -1.5 || O/U 241.5

Pick: The Western-leading Clippers will look to extend their road winning streak to four. With the kind of star power featured in this one, look for the Nets’ Big 3 to bounce back from their Wizards humiliation and outduel Kawhi Leonard and Paul George. Take the Nets and the (ridiculous) over.
