can the lakers beat the clippers? if we get into the playoffs (hopefully), will the lakers be able to beat them? how do you like the match ups? i think we can win in the playoffs against them but its going to be really really difficult specially with the bench and the athleticism they have.. what do you guys think honestly?

It's too far off to think about right now, If the series started today I'd say hell no. Gotta ask this in April.

Today we stand no chance. I hope Crawford torches the former defensive player of the year (MWP) again on Friday night so Mitch might realize that this team desperately needs athleticism and perimeter D.

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

I hope we meet in the playoffs. No traveling, big advantage for an older team. Better playing every game at staples than having to go to OKC or San Antonio.

By the end of the season I think we will have a great shot. Now? Not so much. However, I feel that we have the size in order to compete. Pau and Dwight should make any inside shots more difficult, leaving Deandre Jordan almost non-existant and Blake shooting from the perimeter, which is something I will take all day. But the Clips have many guys able to hit the three, so Kobe and crew will need to stay on their man on the perimeter and allow Pau and Dwight to play defense one on one.

Clippers right now are the better team... they have a way deeper team a lot of veteran leadership with a ton of young athletic talent and Grant Hill and Billups have not returned

Based on what? Your hopes? ANY measureable metric would suggest that the Lakers would lose and lose decisively.

Once again, I would never hope for one our players to get torched just to prove/disprove something. Also, we can't assume Mitch is lazing around his office eating donuts, have trust in the guy. As for the Clippers, lets how well they do when the game is slowed down.

This isn't even a question right now.

Even after projecting what the Lakers will be at the end of the season though, I think I'd still give the Clippers the advantage.

I see the Lakers improving. Other than the Denver game, the Lakers have been improving on defense. I think their offense was already alright before Nash got back, and it's been even better with Nash back.

But, I think the Lakers' upside is limited with the lack of speed on this team. It really hurts the Lakers defensively.

We still haven't found our identity.

It basically comes down to saying

If we play like we did against the Blazers we torch them 4-2.
If we play like we did against Denver we would lose.

Our team has yet to find the consistency or identity to be able to say. We'll see where we are by the end of January.

Based on current form, our starters can go toe to toe with their starters but if the second units come out uh oh. I still say the Clippers get swept by the Spurs, who can match their depth and Popovich just knows how to beat these PG-led teams in the playoffs.
