Los Angeles Clippers 's Latest Performance :
The Clippers are playing great team basketball at the moment the scoring load is shared among all the players. Five Clippers players came off of the bench to finish in double-figures on the night, led by Lou Williams, who scored 17 points in just 16 minutes of action. The Clippers bench has been one of the main reasons why the team has started out hot with a 4-2 record and they lead the NBA in bench scoring by more than 10 points per game Tobias Harris had another terrific outing for the Clippers as he dropped 22 against the Wizards shooting 9-for-16 from the floor. Coach Doc Rivers is making him the focal point of the offense and he has responded well with the role. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander played 28 minutes and hit 4-of-8 shots and a 3-pointer for 10 points, eight rebounds, seven assists. It is just a matter of time that he will have a major role with this Clippers team.
Oklahoma City Thunder's Latest Performance :
The Thunder are hoping to keep their momentum going after getting their first win against the Suns. Westbrook had 23 points in his last outing as he is making a comeback from a shoulder injury. He is starting to look more comfortable on the basketball court as we should be expecting him to put up his regular numbers against the Clippers. Paul George hit 9-of-15 shots and four 3-pointers for 23 points, four rebounds, five assists. It was arguably his best shooting night of the season the Thunder needed to win one game to get things going. Noel is questionable for this game as he is dealing with an ankle injury but in his last start against the Suns he put up a fantastic stat line of 20 points, 15 rebounds, two assists, four steals and a block on 9-of-14 shooting in 26 minutes. It is a good sign of good things to come for the Thunder as they have found another piece on the offensive end.
