Get to know about the Golden State Warriors vs LA Clippers prediction and match preview here. The Golden State Warriors are all ready to host the LA Clippers in their home court, the Chase Centre. It’s a kick-start for the Clippers’ NBA season but the Warriors are sure in a better shape after beating the season’s favorite champions the LA Lakers, in their first regular-season game.
After a close victory over the LA Lakers in their season’s opener, the warriors got to have a better intake on how the season will treat them. Without their star player Klay Thompson and the rookie James Wiseman, the warriors managed to remain at the surface against the 67 point game alone by LeBron James and Anthony Davis, but a solid solution is needed. Stephen Curry’s ineffectiveness in the match was quite big to be not seen with naked eyes. Stephen managed to score 21 points with 10 assists and 10 rebounds. The Warriors’ amulet needs a better footing on the court or the warriors will surely witness the recital of the last season.
The injury of their key player, Kawhi Leonard, has been a huge blow to the roster of the LA Clippers. Leonard acquired a partial tear of the ACL in his right knee during the 2021 Western Conference semifinals and has been on the sidelines since then. Though the Clippers managed to win a game this preseason and kept the statistics at 1-3, still it is a huge baggage of responsibility for Paul George, Reggie Jackson, and the whole roster.

Golden State Warriors vs LA Clippers Prediction
Nobody knows how the Golden State Warriors vs LA Clippers prediction will unfold for tomorrow’s match but if we were to compare the rosters we might get an idea. The LA Clippers are without a lot of their regular players that make their roster a little bit weak. So, it makes the Golden State Warriors vs LA Clippers prediction a little reliable. The Warriors will have to launch a blitz whose focal point will obviously be Stephen Curry. The two-time MVP will have more space to shine and show his flawless shooting in the absence of the opponent’s regular players (not that players on court could stop him from doing so).
The Golden State Warriors seem to have an edge and a better shot at winning this match but Paul George and co. may take out a few surprises from the cupboard.
