In game six of the Western Conference playoffs I am going to go against the trend and take the under the total as Houston visits the L.A. Clippers.

Under Anyone?
One way or another each of these games have been high flying affairs with every one of them going for 218 points or more. NBA betting odds.  makers have come out with the total set at 219.5 which is a really high total even with the status and flow of the current series.  It has been interesting as well because in the last three games it has been just one of the teams that have gone off while the other got blown out, this has been just a weird series.

Here's another capper's take on tonight's decisive matchup

Back to Playing Some Defense
After this onslaught of points, I anticipating after some tape watching these teams are going to simply do a better job on the defensive end. The issue that really perplexes me is that overall the averages are not that far off. Combined averages on the season shots attempted just below 167, last three games in this series 169, three point shots combined on the year 59 per game average, last three games just under 62. Combined shooting average from the field 46%, last three games 47%. 

Defensively both these teams are better than they have played at times. I anticipate them to lock things down a bit more as this series continues here in game six and get back to their averages. In the last three games they have allowed 46% shooting from the field combined but on the year they have allowed only 44%. I still expect a high scoring affair but closer to 210 of a total than 220, take the under with confidence for your NBA picks.
