Not only are the Nets playing horrible defense, but they play so fast that they force other teams to score even more on them, making their defense look even worse. Tonight the Clippers are in town and we love the over tonight in hopes the Clippers score about 120 points.

Apparently the sharps got hold of this line overnight because the total for this one has shot up all the way to 216 ½. I was going to hammer the over in this one when the number was down towards 212, but now it’s more of a standard one or two unit play for me. The Clippers’ defense may be great, but their offense may be even better. Despite the fact that Blake Griffin is a little banged up, I still like the Clippers to drop about 120 points in this one in route to the over.

The Nets are playing faster than any team in the league and they will speed up LA enough to make this a fast-paced and high scoring game. As long as Brooklyn gets to 95 or 100 points, I have faith in the Clippers getting enough points against this weak Nets defense. So far this season the Nets are allowing nearly 112 points per 100 possessions and considering they play at  a pace of 102 possessions per game, the Clippers might have a floor of 115 points tonight.

Both teams have also been pretty reliable cashing the over lately. The Clippers have cashed the over in eight of their last 10 games, while the Nets have cashed it in seven of their last eight. Keep the trend going tonight.
