    Lakers will beat the clips today

    Now lakers will beat the other team they will need to beat in playoffs

    They also need to prove they can beat them period

    Lakers win today and they have enough separation they can coast the last 20 gms

    This is my last regular season play here

    Pretty much last chance to take them here

    After today they can go 13-7 to Finnish the season if they want

    If anything they will b a good fade down the stretch

    But like I said I'm done after today

    I'm not low on them. I just think when it matters vs the clippers they don't matchup well. Leonard will hound James and the clippers have better defenders all over the court. On top of that I will take doc Rivers over Vogel though I don't think Vogel is bad.

    Clippers healthy and playing good ball right now.. Already beat the Lakers once this year. Lakers might have a let down after the big win over the Bucks in their last game.

    I gotta go with the Clippers Johnny in this one.. Sorry man..

    On the other side again. GL. Bucks played more so poorly than the Lakers did well. Clippers in good form too. Six in a row. 10-0 when all healthy. Jackson, and Morris added since the last meeting. Outside of the king bitch, and AD, the Lakers donít have anyone with an edge against who the Clippers can put against them. And thereís not much of an advantage for LeBron against Kawhi anyway. All signs point to the Clippers in my view, so youíre probably right. Lakers do have motivation on their side, while the Clippers already know they can beat them. Just so deep that they can withstand off nights from a couple guys.

    This. I am not sure either team will come out guns a blazin. I do believe that if the Lakers get down in second half they might just fold up the tent.
    Every regular season gets worse and worse. Whatever the reason, and we know that in this league, no contender fan base is happy with anything less than a chip.
    Between load mgt. and whole teams taking nights off, the league has lost its appeal to me. I will be interested in the playoffs and root for my team, but it just isn`t the same.

    Not bet. Clips win.

    Agreed. Regular season is trash. I have no desire to see guys chucking up 3s all day.

    If youíre a contending team, it really is championship or bust. Unless youíre rebuilding, then making the playoffs may seem like a success. Most teams today build off of free agency, and not the draft, so you go into every season as a fan thinking that you have a shot to win it all. If youíre a Pelicans, or Suns fan, then sure, thereís other things to be happy about. But, itís an all or nothing league for most. No one cares who wins the division, or anything like that. Barely even know what division teams are in these days. They donít hang banners for that.

    The best thing they have going for them. Though you could argue the Clippers need this one to close the gap for the #1 spot in the West. A win gets them to 4.5 back.

    It's too far back though. I don't think they think they have a realistic shot at it. Also, #1 seed isn't all that important since Lakers will have home edge over them no matter what. They do want to make sure they keep #2 over Nuggets but I don't think that's too worrisome. Doc is a practical coach, don't think he wants to show his hand too much until it really matters

    Probably right. Lakers definitely donít want to be 0-3 against their biggest competition, and rival.

    this is big brother little brother. the stakes are particularly high for the purple & gold. HOWEVER there is a man wearing the other colors who gives no fukks about these psychological games. he doesn't care about the standings. he doesn't care how you feel. he doesn't want to be your friend. he will kill you on that floor over and over again with no hesitation. like nothing we've seen since Kobe & Jordan. that man has that type of BLOOD flowing through his veins.
