    4 game lead for first instead of a 2 game lead. Huge.

    I’d gladly settle for 2nd in the West if they can show consistency in beating the top 5 teams in the NBA. They have lost to Houston, Clips twice, Bucks, Celtics, Toronto, and Philly.....they are having a tough time winning against these teams.

    Clippers have like a 2-7 record against Houston, Bucks, Denver, Utah, etc. They can't get caught up in targeting team over an 82 games season. These records create illusions. Teams coming off back to backs, 3 games in 5 nights, crazy travel, watered down last minute game planning, etc. Playoffs are truly different. Don't want to say that the reg-season is " exhibition season ", but it's not close to playoff basketball.

    Down goes Lillard. Groin injury. Guess that'll cool his ass off. Booker taking his spot on the all star team

    Clips lose, again. Paul George hurt, again. Lakers 5 games ahead of the Clips in the loss column....again.

    Utah on a 4 game winning streak, tied with the Clips in the loss column for the 3-seed. A 1st round 4/5 seed matchup of Clips VS Rockets?

    I'm pretty confident.

    With Kawhi's load management + PG's injuries/inconsistencies, the Lakers would have to play like dog shit to give up the lead to them.

    Not worried about Denver....they'll have enough Ls.

    Clippers/Rockets round 1 would be awesome. Nightmare scenario for the Clippers imo. No way they'd get out of that easily.

    Zion may be the beast to end all beasts, the final boss - if he can stay healthy.

    What's fuckin with me at this point is how he's a crafty lefty on top of all the other shit. That's impossible to deal with. Shaq meets Barkley meets Willis Reed

    Couldn't believe how easily he was scoring on Adams last night. Moving him out of the way with ease. Give me Memphis at the 8....no thanks to New Orleans/Portland.

    Hope you're right. Only role player I really trust on the road is Green..maybe Dwight and double maybe Rondo

    Lakers would have the winner of that series in the 2nd round. Would you rather face the Clips/ROX in the 2nd round or conference finals?

    I'm okay with that....either way, going to have to get through them. The Nuggets/Jazz aren't contenders in my eyes.

    Rockets are the lone team I can see upsetting the Clippers. And if that happens, I don't see the Lakers losing to them in a best of 7. I know what happened at LA recently, but the Rockets would have to shoot out of their shoes the entire series to overcome the obvious mismatches down low. I'm sure LeBron would wise up and drive more instead of chucking 8 3s.

    Given the mileage of a few of these dudes, may actually serve the team better if they meet the Clips in the 2nd round. Clear that bar a little earlier.

    As much as the ROX have a chance to upset the Clips, probably have similar odds of being swept or beat by the Clips in 5. It's a Harden/Westbrook-led team, after all. Both could shoot the ROX out of every game and no one would be surprised - and of course, D'antoni doesn't adjust a whole lot. And if the Clips have the Lakers in the next round, they're not gonna want to fuck around with the ROX for long
