This is a tough one to call. Both teams are playing well and have the potential to win on any given night. The Cavaliers have the home-court advantage and a slightly better record, but the Clippers have Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, two of the league’s best scorers.

I think the Cavaliers will ultimately win this game, but it will be a close one. Their balanced offense and strong defense should be enough to overcome the Clippers’ star power.
