NBA Pick of the Day (5/6) - Los Angeles Clippers @ Houston Rockets

After a nail-biting Game 7 victory over the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday, the Los Angeles Clippers - led by Blake Griffin's triple double - cruised to a 16-point victory on the road in Houston in Game 1 on Monday. Chris Paul did not play due to a hamstring injury he suffered against San Antonio.

Clippers head coach Doc Rivers said Tuesday that point guard Chris Paul is "50-50" to play in Game 2. AccuScore simulations were run without Chris Paul in the lineup.

AccuScore has the Rockets as 63 percent favorites to win Wednesday night. The average score after AccuScore ran its 10,000-plus simulations is 106 - 102.
