If the Clippers didn't lose Kawhi for that stretch at the start of the season their record may be even better than it currently is, which is tied with us for best record in the league.


However the Lakers are running a marathon, not a sprint. I will say that Ty Lue has the Clippers playing more inspired/less entitled basketball. Because he is a no nonsense coach where as Rivers is a players coach. He inspires early success but then when the pressure comes they fold, because he didn't prepare them for it, unless they were already the kind that thrived under it before he got there.


That said, the Clippers are as it stands the Lakers biggest challenge in the West. But they also have a history that shows they may not even make the WCF to face the Lakers. So it really won't matter if they don't even make it to the WCF.

What the Lakers should be focusing on is the long game, and being in a good position to make a run when the Playoffs begin, because if healthy we should be WCF bound. It's on the Clippers to prove they can get there period, regardless of how their regular season goes.

In this case, you bet $100 to win $4,000.00. I'm a little surprised his odds are this high. In comparison Lebron is +900 right now.

Lakers are still favored in Vegas to win it all +250. Clippers are +600.

Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are out due to health and safety protocols. The Clippers will be without their star tandem and Patrick Beverley (right knee soreness). All three starters did not fly with the team to Atlanta for the start of this six-game trip

It's likely to happen to a lot of clubs this year. That' why we have depth and we're racking up the wins now

It’s not a 1-2 games thing, they’d be looking at a long losing streak

Sorry. My fault. I was unclear. I was surprised at KL and PG both being out.

Clippers got that 2014 Spurs vibe to them that they are all business. The problem is they are playing out their minds right now, hard to imagine both Kawhi and PG being 50/40/90 all season and playoffs

Despite no Kawhi or PG, looks like the Hawks need playoff Rondo to make an appearance.

Not surprised by it. They got humiliated last year by going out the way they did after all that talking. You can tell they got humbled. When we see them; it’s going to be on. Still like our chances especially when everything is clicking.

I think a lot of it has to do with the coach. Ty Lue is no nonsense, and leads a more focused team than Doc. Doc is so overrated, Ty is much better.

The Clippers look much better than the Nets to be honest. They're focused, they're professional, they're looking good.

Nets, imo, comparatively are a basketcase. Whoever wins between the Lakers and the Clippers will hoist the trophy this year.

Who cares about the Clippers? They have to play with a chip on their shoulder. They had the worst meltdown in the history of the NBA....history!!!
They will forever suck.
