The Clippers made the big deal sending Blake Griffin to the Pistons. I am not saying they are better without him but it wasn’t a give up, just cashing in on a high value asset.
Chicago has been out of it all season long. They already jettisoned their key trading chips and due to injury just don’t have much to show for them.
One of those pieces is Kris Dunn who is out indefinitely with a concussion. They weren’t getting much out of him even when he was healthy though.
Zach Lavine has only played 9 games this season and they are being careful with him. He did score 23 points in 22 minutes in his most recent outing. He can score for sure.
They are more interesting with LaVine but even though they have won his first few games back they are once again riding a losing streak heading into L.A.
There is not a lot of talent on this team and definitely not a lot to work with up front. Bobby Portis has been a disappointment all season long and Lauri Markkanen might miss this one due to personal reasons.
The Bulls can only hope they are getting LA in a transition moment. They are going to need them to be.
Los Angeles Clippers
L.A. was in a middling season but it was still a surprise that they dealt Griffin. No one player they got back is as good as the perennial All-Star but they got a couple of good players back in Tobias Harris and Avery Bradley. The thing is the Clippers used to have a couple of stars – with Chris Paul. Now they have none.
Neither of those players has suited up for the Clippers yet but I think they will in this one. They definitely add to the overall depth of the team and I expect them to both start on Saturday. This team could still be a playoff team if they stand pat from here on out.
That might not happen because many think they will deal Lou Williams who is having a great season as a gunner off the bench. Sweet Lou is averaging a career high 23ppg which is amazing considering his role and age and that he has never done that before in his career. He could put a contender over the top.

You never know how things are going to turn out with these mega deals and whether the impact will be immediate or subtle so you might want to skip this one.
If you are going to fade the Clippers it also means that you have to back the Bulls and that isn’t much fun.
