Gambling is illegal in Los Angeles and it should be.

For if it were legal, LAist would bet the damn farm on the Clippers beating the crap out of the Golden State Warriors tonight at Staples.

Why? Numbers. The Warriors just pulled the trigger on an eight-player trade that leaves the visitors with just six healthy players on their squad.

NBA rules say you must dress eight or forfeit.

The AP is speculating that the Warriors will probably throw a uniform on one of their least-ailing players and sign someone in the next few hours to a 10-day contract. Is Dennis Rodman in the house?

But what it means is the Clips will probably be able to whallop all over the probably-just-six Warriors who are now minus Troy Murphy and Mike Dunleavy Jr. - Dunleavy had 18 points and a 13 rebounds in the Clippers 108- 93 loss to Golden State on Monday.

If you're reading this in Vegas, put your money on the home team.
