The first thing that we are going to recognize in this series is that points are going to be at a premium in this series. If a team gets to 90 in most of the games in this series, it is going to win. The Clippers figured out how to get the best of the Grizz in three of the four meetings this year, and when they were a relatively full team from a health standpoint, they were definitively the better of these two teams. There is clearly going to be a sense of these games being wars more than basketball games, as this will be a dirty series with a lot of pushing, shoving, and hard fouling. Fortunately for both of these teams, they are totally healthy at this point. That means that G Chauncey Billups is back and available off of the bench for Head Coach Vinny Del Negro and the Clippers. With that being said, that is going to make this team all the more dangerous. LA is sort of flying under the radar at the moment, and it is going show the rest of the world very early in this series that it could be the third most dangerous team in the West, not the Denver Nuggets. We’re laying the points on the NBA playoffs odds in Game 1, and we think that you should do so as well.
