With the moves the Clippers made they are obviously playing for tomorrow. On the road they might not put up much of a fight.
Boston is gathering steam in the Eastern Conference. They were quiet at the deadline but that is because they have liked their mix all along. .
Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers are in second place in the Pacific Division but elected to write off this season. The expectation is that they will slide out of playoff contention. It is an interesting case.
At this time it is uncertain whether any of the new players they acquired will suit up for this game. You probably want to look elsewhere for a little while until we know more about this team and who is on the floor.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is a promising rooking that they are looking to build around. As a rookie point guard he and the team are definitely going to have some ups and downs.
With the trade of Tobias Harris the Clippers lost their most consistent scorer. That puts a lot of pressure on everyone. Lou Williams can fill it up still but beyond him points may be hard to come by.
You have to think that these guys are going to be a max effort team, especially with more time for Montrezl Harrell. Let’s see what happens with this group.
Boston has been playing great but is coming off a loss to the other team from L.A.. The Lakers had to be mad after getting embarrassed by Indiana so the Celtics might have walked into something, event at home. There is no reason not to expect a bounceback.
Per the above the Celtics did not make any moves to keep pace with other teams in the Eastern Conference. Whether they needed to or not is up for debate and we will probably have to wait til April to find out. The thing that would help them the most is getting Gordan Hayward back to a high level. I am not sure what is holding him back at this point.
Even though it is a los the Celtics showed some depth by having three players come off the bench against the Lakers and score 18+ points. I think this group is overrated but I am not saying that they are not good.
