Monday, November 27 finds Pacific Division rivals L.A. Lakers and L.A. Clippers facing off under their shared home of the Staples Center. For the first time in years the Lakers have produced a better record than the Clippers.
Last season, the squads played four times with the Clippers winning three of the four contests. In the past 16 meetings the Clippers have won all but one game. However, the Lakers hold the all-time record having bested the Clippers 145 to 68.
In their past three games the Lakers beat Denver and Chicago, but lost their last game to Sacramento this past Wednesday. The schedule makers favored the squad with four days off allowing Luke Walton ample practice time for his young squad. Moreover, the Lakers get a shot in the arm as Larry Nance Jr. makes his return to the court this evening.
While Lonzo Ball continues to struggle with his shot, rookie peer Kyle Kuzma has opened eyes around the Association. Starting in Nance’s absence Kuzma has excelled. As a starter he is registering 18.1 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.54 assists. In comparison as a reserve he produces 15 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists.
With Nance back the assumption is he’ll return to the starting rotation. However, it’s not a simple decision given Kuzma leads the team in scoring and three point efficiency (36.6%).
Although the Clippers enter the match with wins over the Hawks and Kings this followed a nine-game losing streak. The Clippers haven’t necessarily turned a corner since the two wins came against teams with a cumulative 9-30 record.
With rumors LA are shopping their star talent and Doc Rivers job is in flux the team can’t afford to keep losing. Additional pressure arrives via the schedule as five of the Clippers next seven games are against currently seeded playoff teams.
Blake Griffin continues to lead the way with 23.4 points, 7.7 boards and 5.0 assists. Augmenting Griffin’s efforts DeAndre Jordan is averaging a double-double (10.1 points/13.9 rebounds).
Injury continues to be a factor with Patrick Beverley lost for the season, Milos Teodosic likely out another month and Danilo Gallinari still nursing a strained glut. With depth thin in the backcourt Lou Williams is now starting leaving the reserve unit decimated.

Free L.A. Lakers vs. L.A. Clippers NBA Prediction:
The Lakers have the advantage of a top ten defense (6th), versatility and a far deeper reserve unit. Furthermore, given the uniqueness of the Lakers vs Clippers it’s not exactly a road game for the Lakers.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Under
The under has dominated the team’s past several outings and while the Clippers starting unit is spearheading the 12th ranked offense; their reserve unit won’t be able to match the Lakers.
