This matchup between the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers may very well be a preview of the Western Conference finals, as these two teams will look to establish themselves and jockey for playoff seeding when they meetup at the Staples Center for another one of the NBA’s matinees on Sunday.
Los Angeles Lakers
Unfortunately for the NBA and the Lakers this won’t be the marquee matchup they were hoping for, as this Sunday’s visitors will be severely short-handed with Lebron James and Anthony Davis both missing out here.
The injury issues don’t even stop their, as Andre Drummond is now day to day, as he was forced to leave this team’s last game along with Wesley Matthews who is also up in the air in terms of his status for this game.
The Lakers are coming off of a win though, beating the Sacramento Kings last time out with Kyle Kuzma having a great game putting up 30 points on 11 of 18 shooting for one of his better performances of the season.
Another guy who had a sneaky good game against the Kings was Talen Horton-Tucker who had 15 points on just 22 minutes and also was able to chip in with 4 steals and with games like that you can see why this franchise was so reluctant to trade him to the Raptors for Lowry.
Los Angeles Clippers
The big news for the Clippers coming into this contest will be the arrival of Rajon Rondo who I think is a great signing, as I can see him making a difference off of the bench and is an awesome guy to have in the locker room for a playoff run being a guy who has been there and done it.
The Clippers could use his veteran presence now, as this team has lost their last 2 games after winning 6 straight as it really is tough to decide just how good this team is with some of their inconsistencies.
Although the Clippers will have most of their team together for this matchup, they have not been able to avoid the injury bug completely with Serge Ibaka and Patrick Beverley both missing out here.

Free Los Angeles Lakers vs. Los Angeles Clippers NBA Prediction:
The Los Angeles Lakers are just missing too many of heir pieces here and -11 seems like a really reasonable spread to lay here with the Clippers. I can imagine the Clippers want to put a stamp on this win as well, as they have not exactly been rolling as of late and the Clippers do have the offense to do just that.
