Advice and prediction

The Rockets were quite competitive in Phoenix on Sunday night ⁠— even tying the game late in the third quarter ⁠— versus a Suns team that is considerably more talented than the short-handed Clippers will be on Monday at Crypto.com Arena. While the Rockets will be on night two of a back-to-back, that also holds true for the Clippers. We’ll take the Rockets to beat the large spread number.

Prediction: Clippers 115, Rockets 107
