Clippers at Thunder
The new-and-improved Thunder, featuring last season’s MVP in Russell Westbrook and 4-time All-Star Paul George, will be a lot to take in. I mean, they’re going to be downright scary. Beverley, as excellent as he is on defense, simply won’t be able to stop Brodie. Gallinari has never been known for his defense, and probably won’t have an answer for George. The Clippers win this game if it’s an all-out shootout, but the smart choice is to go with an L, especially since it’s a road game. Chesapeake Energy Arena gets loud.
