Chris Paul makes his return vs the 76ers; is that the reason why the Clippers are favored by -15???

Just two days ago the 76ers lost by 14 at home to the Lakers, i believe that is the reason why the are favored by 15.  The 76ers allowed lay up after lay up to jordan hill and chris kaman, they literally got to the front of the rim every possession in the 2nd half, or a wide open jumper.  Then the 76ers turned the ball over every other possession in the second half.  

The clippers will have full control of this game in every way.  Alley oops all night long.  Clippers -15.

YoungUp's got the logic. Similar thing happened to the Raps when they played Sac and Cousins destroyed them. Next game they play the Clips and it was obvious that Griffen and Jordan had watched the tape. Griffen. Raps were dominated in the paint and on the boards. Same story here isn't it? Weakness exposed and exploited. BOLTA

The total is at 220.5. 76ers games are usually high-scoring affairs.

I think for this game to go under one team (I think it will be the Clippers) has to get stops somewhere in the game. When they trade basket and the score is over 200 with  6-minutes or so left in the 4th quarter I see this game going over. But I lean on the under because I  think at the end the result will be something like 115-97 for the Clippers.

Exactly this, that was one the most obvious suck/tank jobs I've seen in 20 plus years, didn't bet the game so my opinion is not biased, I wanted to cue up the Benny hill theme song.

PHI and under
Paul is returning. When players return after a long absence, the first game back is usually low minutes and not great statistically. Clips when easy but PHI covers the the 15.5. Total goes under

yea i never quite understand why everyone on here and the experts always take the points when the line is around 15.  The line is that huge for a reason.  76ers are terrible, undersized, and cannot play D. Clips up 31 after 12 minutes.

Wow ha ha PHI is the worst but expected a 20+ lead by clips to get back doored and PHI cover and lose. PHI + 45 looks like a losing bet at this point

If they shoot under 25% from the field will that be a record?
