The Clippers and Lakers face each other tonight at the Staples Center.
The Clippers are currently 7th, and the Lakers are 10th in the Western Conference Standings.
Let us take a look at the teams individually:
Los Angeles Lakers
Lebron and the Lakers have won just three games in the last 11 played. Losing to Phoenix Suns in their previous game was a big blow for them as their playoff hopes have started to diminish.
As a team, the Lakers are shooting 47.5% from the field and 33.8% from beyond the three-point line. LeBron James has led from the front with 27 points per game alongside Kyle Kuzma who is averaging 18.9 points per game.
The Lakers have been inconsistent at home and will look to turn the tables around tonight.
Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers have been on fire with just two losses in last seven played. They are looking to cement their place for the playoffs and face a struggling Lakers’ team tonight.
As a team, the Clippers are shooting 46.7% from the field and 34% from beyond the three-point line. Lou Williams leads the pack averaging 19.8 points per game alongside Danilo Gallinari who is averaging 18.8 points per game. Also, Montrezl Harrell has been exceptional and always provided the boost.
The Clippers will be looking to maintain the winning run by defeating the Lakers tonight.
The Clippers are no doubt a better team on and off the paper tonight. The Lakers are a mess and supporting Lakers every time is just heartbreaking.
The Lakers, however, have Lebron James, who is the best player on the planet — giving them one more chance tonight.
LA Lakers to beat the LA Clippers.
