The Clippers and Pelicans have faced each other only once this season. The game took place at the end of October last year and ended with a clear away win for the Pels. At that time, however, the guests also had their top forward Zion Williamson on board, who now has to pass due to injury.

LA Clippers – Stats & Current Form
As mentioned, LA can currently fall back on Kawhi Leonard, but Paul George is currently missing. “Playoff P” got injured in the penultimate game against OKC and probably will at least not return to the roster during the regular season.
For the Clippers, this is a huge debilitation as George is the Pacific team’s top scorer alongside Leonard. In the last game, which again took place against Oklahoma, the home side nevertheless recorded a clear victory.
