Wouldn't touch the line in this matchup but over 190 seems pretty easy to me here

Why?  Clippers are better at 4 out 5 positions and Jordan will slow down Howard a little because he's a good athlete.  Howard will still get 20/10...

Clippers have not beaten the Magic in awhile.  CP3 makes the difference here.

Clippers -1

Orlando has been on a skid downward lately, and the last few wins were up against 2 subpar teams and barely beating the Pacers when the Pacers shot 34% in that game.

The matchups favor Clippers except for Howard and the overall 3 point shooting that the Magic have in Ryan Anderson and Richardson.

However, I think that Griffin and CP3 with their supporting cast can beat the Magic especially if the continuing to slump on shooting or they die by the three point shot.

My pick: Clippers -1

The Clippers are 0-13 ATS since January 05, 2007 on the road with at least one day of rest after a game on the road in which they shot at least 50% from the field.

Although they are a new team with CP3 I'm gonna follow the trend and take Orlando at home +1
