Heard on radio Mason&Ireland and Max&Marcellus discussing how good the Clips are this season and how difficult they could be in a potential playoff matchup.

Personally i think they're a bit flukey...

Bledsoe, who have been insanely good, cant shoot or pass but somehow fits his current role. Dont expect him to be third (!) in PER among PGs going forward (ahead of Westbrook, D-Will, Rondo etc.) and same goes with Jamal Crawford (4th in PER among SGs ahead of Harden and Wade). Once they come down to earth, so will the Clips.

The only guy i see improving from his current level is Griffin and only by a little.

On the other hand, i actually see almost every Laker improving once we get going. Kobe probably wont be having a career shooting year all year, but Dwight, Pau, Meeks and Jamison should improve a lot once Nash gets back. Same with whoever is playing the back-up PG spot.

The Clippers have a deep bench while ours has yet to prove itself. But if our defense continues to improve I think we should have the advantage. Blake Griffin hasn't really shown that he can make big shots when needed or with good defense. If we can keep him shooting mid range jumpers I think we'll do fine. CP3 will get his numbers and I'm fine with that as long as we limit everyone else.

If memory serves me right, they have a bunch of guys on their team that can go down and be out for the rest of the season at any given moment (CP3 included).

So how is this team better than the Lakers?

Other than the fact that they've had a smooth season so far.

The Lakers would win in six games if healthy IMO. Clippers are a good team, but tbh I'm more worried about the Spurs in the West.
