The Clippers look for their fourth straight win as they head to Houston to take on the Rockets.

Los Angeles will again be without Kawhi Leonard, but Tyronn Lue's team has had no trouble operating without Kawhi this season, going 10-5 in games without him per StatMuse.

Paul George has been on an absolute tear this season, and it has been lost in the shadow of several noteworthy seasons from top NBA stars.

While the Clippers have been dominant this year, the Rockets have been the exact opposite. Houston is still in "make-it-through-the-season" mode, hoping its top-four protected pick stays with the organization.

With these two teams going in completely different directions, it is definitely not a shock to see the line for this game so high.

That being said, our PRO Report shows that sharp bettors are seeing some real value in Clippers vs. Rockets on Friday night.

Let's break it all down.
