Free Los Angeles Lakers vs. Los Angeles Clippers NBA Prediction:
Sunday, March 8th, finds Staples Center co-residents the Los Angeles Lakers and LA Clippers meeting for the third time this season. The teams played on opening night and Christmas Day with the Clippers winning both games.
Last season, the teams played four times and split the series. The Lakers hold the all-time record having bested the Clippers in 148 of their 222 matches.
Los Angeles Lakers
This weekend serves up two critical games for the Lakers. In the first game, LA took care of business beating the best team in the NBA. Reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo was held off his seasonal averages and he got little support from his Bucks teammates.
LeBron James was the best star on the hardwood registering 37 points, eight assists, and eight rebounds. No doubt the win by the Lakers will increase the banter about LeBron winning MVP this season.
Of course, James’ big advantage over Giannis is he has another top-five star by his side in Anthony Davis. The duo took turns wearing down Antetokounmpo and Davis offered 30 points with nine rebounds.
Kyle Kuzma (11) was the only other Laker to score in double-figures.
The interesting part of the MVP conversation is Davis leads five team categories including points (26.6), rebounds (9.5), field goal percent (51.0%), blocks (2.5) and steals (1.5) while James tops assists (10.7).
Los Angeles Clippers
A big win by the Clippers over the Rockets moved LA ahead of Denver for the sole possession of second in the West as they ride a current six-game win streak.
The Clippers showcased their depth and versatility versus the Rockets taking advantage of the boards and paint scoring. Both Ivica Zubac (17 points, 12 rebounds) and Montrezl Harrell (19 points, 10 rebounds) collected double-doubles.
Still, the center position is the only area the Clippers are light given Zubac’s inexperience and Harrell being undersized. They’ve remedied that as LA announced they will ink Joakim Noah to a contract.
His presence is for insurance but no doubt he’ll be someone the Clippers will call upon if/when they face the Lakers or Nuggets in the postseason.
In the win versus the Rockets, Kawhi Leonard led the way with 25 points, five assists, and six rebounds while Paul George served as his capable backup adding 13 points, seven assists, and nine rebounds.
Marcus Morris and JaMychal Green each chipped in 11 points.
Clippers leaders are Kawhi Leonard for scoring (26.9) and steals (1.8), Lou Williams for assists (5.8), Ivica Zubac for rebounds (7.1) and Montrezl Harrell for blocks (1.1) and field goal percentage (58.0%).

Free Los Angeles Lakers vs Los Angeles Clippers NBA Prediction:
Listed as a Clippers home game LA is still Lakers Nation and as such the crowd will likely skew to supporting the Lakers.
If the Clippers win this match it will give them the tie-breaker and more importantly set tongues wagging over who truly is the dominant team in LA.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Clippers -2
LeBron will be dialed in to grab the win while Kawhi will be intent on getting in the Lakers heads that they can’t beat the Clippers.
Either way, expect a physical, defensive battle.
