Center DeAndre Jordan scored a career-best 26 points and collected 18 rebounds against the Spurs as he repeatedly was sent to the free-throw line. Jordan attempted a career-high 28 free throws but made just 10, which just prompted San Antonio to continue the hack-a-Jordan strategy. “It’s something that teams are going to use as a strategy to slow us down, and I guess get me mentally frustrated,” Jordan told reporters. “Over the years, it’s become something I’ve gotten used to. As long as we’re getting stops or I’m making them, it really doesn’t matter.”
In their last action, Los Angeles was a 119-115 winner at home against the Spurs. They covered the +2.5-point spread as underdogs, while the combined score (234) was profitable news for OVER bettors.

Karl wants to play at a faster pace, so turnovers could continue to be an issue as long as point guard Darren Collison is sidelined. Collison missed the final three games prior to the All-Star break due to a hip flexor, and he remained sidelined against Boston and also is expected to sit against the Clippers. Ray McCallum drew the start against the Celtics and had more turnovers (five) than assists (four) in 25 minutes.
Sacramento was a 109-101 winner in its last match at home against the Celtics. They covered the -4-point spread as favorites, while the total score of 210 sent OVER bettors to the payout window.
