Brooklyn Nets at Los Angeles Clippers NBA Betting Analysis, Picks
The Brooklyn Nets (22-9) and Los Angeles Clippers (17-16) will face off at the Crypto.com Arena Los Angeles, CA, on Monday. Tip-off is scheduled for 7:30 P.M. PST.
The Nets played the Lakers at the first official game since the Staples Center became the Crypto.com Arena on Christmas Day. Brooklyn, playing without Kevin Durant, was able to narrowly defeat the struggling Lakers by a final score of 122-115.
The Clippers defeated the Kings 105-89 last week before losing to Denver 103-100 on Sunday. They also recently received very unfortunate news when it was revealed that Paul George would be forced to miss 3-4 weeks with a torn ligament in his right elbow.
These two injury/covid plagued teams will look to overcome the circumstances and earn the victory on Monday evening.
Betting Analysis for Brooklyn Nets at Los Angeles Clippers NBA
Brooklyn Nets Betting Stats & Analysis
The Brooklyn Nets remain at the top of the Eastern Conference despite having nine players in health and safety protocols over the past couple of weeks. The Nets are still 7-3 over their past ten contests, and one has to wonder how good this team will be once all of their stars return.
Kevin Durant has already been ruled out for Monday night’s game as he remains in health and safety protocols. Kyrie Irving is expected to make his Nets season debut once he returns from the same issue. Irving is expected to be a part-time player with the team due to the city of Brooklyn’s strict indoor vaccine mandates.
But having Kyrie on the floor at least part of the time is better than not at all.
The Nets were led by James Harden and Patty Mills in the Christmas Day win over the Lakers. Harden posted a triple-double with 36 points, ten rebounds, and ten assists. Mills added 34 points and seven assists.
Brooklyn ranks seventh in points per game, sixth in field goal percentage, and sixth in assists per game, heading into Monday. This is a well-rounded unit with plenty of star power at the top.
Harden and Mills will look to once again lead the Nets to a win over the short-handed Clippers in this matchup.
Los Angeles Clippers Betting Stats & Analysis
The Clippers were hopeful for a strong season prior to the beginning of the 2021-2022 NBA campaign. Paul Goerge was going to help keep the team in contention, and there was a chance Kawhi Leonard would return before the postseason.
However, George is now expected to miss at least three weeks with an injury, and a timetable has yet to be set for Leonard.
Reggie Jackson was also ruled out due to health and safety protocols in Sunday’s close loss against the Nuggets.
The makeshift lineup led by Eric Bledsoe, Ivica Zubac, and Terrance Man did their best to get the Clippers a win on Sunday against Denver, but they fell just short in the affair.
Nonetheless, Bledsoe posted a double-double with 18 points and ten assists, while Zubac added a double-double of his own with 17 points and 11 rebounds. Mann contributed 11 points, eight assists, and seven rebounds in the loss.
Even before the George injury, Los Angeles ranked near the bottom of the league in points per game. Heading into Monday, the Clippers rank 25th in points per contest. They also are below average in assists and turnovers per game.
The Clippers will truly need all hands on deck if they want to stay above water in the wake of the Paul George injury.

How To Bet On: Brooklyn Nets at Los Angeles Clippers NBA – Betting lines
The Clippers are a good team with a string of bad luck. They have had players miss time due to covid protocols, and winning will prove to be even more difficult without Paul George in the rotation. While Los Angeles could avoid falling to the bottom of the Western Conference, defeating a team as talented as Brooklyn on Monday will present quite the obstacle.
The Nets could possibly struggle without Kevin Durant in the lineup once again. But James Harden has the ability to carry a team to victory. If you factor that with the upside of Patty Mills, Brooklyn has the necessities to emerge victorious on the road in this contest.
Expect the Clippers to give it everything they have, but ultimately the Nets should win this game.
