Celtics vs. Clippers NBA TV Schedule: TNT
Is anyone going to be able to stop the Clippers? They are a runaway freight train right now with 14 wins in a row and a 10-4 ATS record to show for their work in those games. The defense has been remarkable, holding three teams in the 70s and five more teams in the 80s in this run of good fortunate, and the offense has put at least 110 on the board five times and at least 100 in five other games to boot. Needless to say, teams have not just been getting beaten, but they have been getting killed by the Clips. Boston might have turned the corner on Christmas Day, though. The team came up with a 93-76 win over the Brooklyn Nets in a big time way to beat the NBA betting lines, and now, it might all of a sudden be ready to take a few more steps in the right direction on this West Coast swing. The defense for the Celts has allowed just 88.7 points per game (85.8 points per 48 minutes, though) over the course of their last three games, and if they can figure out how to play defense like that with some regularity, they might ultimately be able to come into the Staples Center and pull off the upset of the Clip Joint.
