The Clippers are absolutely one of the best teams in basketball this year, and now that they are a whole team with a lot of awesome weapons off of the bench, there might not be all that many teams in the land that can stop them. So tonight, we’re going to ask the questions of the Lakers instead. LA has been a weird team right now. Chicken Little, the sky has been falling! Yet the boys from Tinseltown have won eight out of 11 and are really right back in the thick of the fight for that last playoff spot in the Western Conference. Everyone is still busy asking what the Lakers are doing wrong and how the Lakers can be fixed, but does anyone actually think that perhaps not having first C Dwight Howard and now F Pau Gasol in the lineup might actually be the panacea for this team? Remember that the Lakers knocked off the Phoenix Suns two nights ago in a game in which G Kobe Bryant scored just four points and Gasol didn’t play. That’s team basketball. Look for Bryant to flex his muscles and come out with a huge game tonight, as the Lakers best the Clips and send a big message to the rest of the NBA.
Clippers @ Lakers Pick: Los Angeles Lakers +3.5
Clippers @ Lakers Prediction: Lakers 114 – Clippers 100
