The Los Angeles Clippers will host the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday night at the Crypto.com Arena with tipoff set for 9:00 PM ET. Despite the return of their full roster, the Los Angeles Clippers are in the midst of season-long five-game losing streak. They lost their most recent game on Friday on the road at Minnesota, 128-115. Neither Kawhi Leonard or Paul George played in that game as both were out for precautionary rest on the second night of a back-to-back. Paul George remains out for the Clippers tonight. Atlanta has also been struggling recently losing five of their past six games, including a 130-114 defeat at Los Angeles against the Lakers on Friday. They are now 18-21 at the season’s halfway point.
Clippers vs Hawks Betting Odds

Clippers vs Hawks Best Bets
Hawks +2.5 (-110 DraftKings)
With Paul George out, I’ll side with the Hawks who are just as desperate for a win as the Clippers are. Led by Trae Young and Dejounte Murray along with secondary scoring from John Collins and De’Andre Hunter, the Hawks have one of the most explosive teams in the league. The Clippers just can’t seem to get into a rhythm with players constantly in and out of the lineup. I’ll side with the Hawks on the road in this one.
