The Lakers and Clippers will face off at the beginning of this season, a Los Angeles show this October 22, 2019, at the Staples Center.
The Lakers finally get star Anthony Davis in exchange for a multiplayer deal, but they didn’t get superstar Kawhi Leonard, but they did to add some talented players to help their team. Include Dwight Howard, Danny Green, Avery Bradley, Quinn Cook, and Jared Dudley. Meanwhile, Kyle Kuzma hopes the game will be better this year. The Lakers have dynamite offense because of their Star duo of Anthony Davis and Lebron James; this team has an 85% chance to enter the playoffs if you check the line up they have. The big question here is this team will have good chemistry.
The Clippers had good results this summer after acquiring finals MVP kawhi Leonard with the Raptors and adding another superstar Paul George. This duo is the same MVP caliber. Also, the Clippers acquired Landry Shamet and Maurice Harkless. Gallinari lost, but it was an excellent turnaround for them to form a caliber team that could win the trophy. The Clippers have retained their team with sixthman Lou Williams and defensive guard Patrick Beverly and former Lakers center Ivica Zubac showing significant improvement last season. While Montrezl Harrell was able to give the team a tough hustle and physicality, JayMychal Green and Rodney McGruder added to the Clippers’ depth. The team hopes that with head coach Doc Rivers and their new star duo of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George they will be able to win the championship just as Kawhi did with the Toronto Raptors.
The Lakers have a deeper bench than the Clippers, but their team still needs good chemistry to develop. Because they lost more players and it could be saying that this team is in the rebuilding process. The Clippers are in good shape because with the arrival of their star duo both MVP caliber and defensive player are now a strength of the team. George and Leonard are comfortable not holding the ball with their hands, and they have a sixth-man who can expect Lou Williams to score. In the NBA the defensive team is better than the offensive side, so in my prediction, the Clippers will win this match.
