As play restarts after a four-month break LA is among the top wagering choices. A modest profit before the shutdown was noticed by a weary gambling community. Specifically, the Clippers remain second to the Lakers. But in a much more promising way.
2020 Los Angeles Clippers Assessment
Starting with one of the best offenses in the NBA have the Clippers emerged. Leonard leads the team with 26.9 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 5.0 assists per game. The 2019 Finals were the second time he was named series Most Valuable Player. In sum, he is a four-time NBA All-Star. NBA Finals upsets are rare. Toronto’s championship caught everyone off guard. This is why fans and gamblers believe Leonard can do it again with LA.
In the same way, is Paul George a key component of the Clippers. He joined up with Leonard in LA after starring for Oklahoma City. George takes much of the workload off of Leonard. So far, he is averaging 21 points and 5.7 rebounds per game.
