Lakers and Clippers face off once again tonight in a marquee matchup, as the battle for LA continues this season. After losing 11 straight to the Clippers, the Lakers won both encounters so far this season. Those two matches were thrilling encounters that both went dow to the wire, and we expect no different this time around. Even though the two couldn’t be having more diverging seasons so far, recent encounters have shown that the Lakers can turn up the intensity when they want to against their city rivals.

The Clippers have been on fire in recent months, having an 18-4 record at home. They won 8 of their last 10 games, including an incredible comeback win at home over Brooklyn on Saturday. On the other hand, the Lakers have a 6-14 record in away games. Although both play in the same arena, the Lakers’ two wins over the Clippers this season came in home games. The Lakers have been on a slump since winning the In-Season Tournament, and are 5-5 in their past 10 games.

The loss of Zubac on the glass for the Clippers may prove fatal if they are unable to deny Davis. Another key matchup will be between two champions: LeBron and Kawhi Leonard. Keep an eye on that star-studded matchup as it could determine this game’s outcome. While the Clippers are favoured in this game, don’t count the Lakers out. Davis to score more than 27.5 is a safe bet (1.92). Paul George to score the most points (3.75) is a riskier bet, but not an unlikely one, as he’s been on fire in recent weeks. As the battle for LA continues, will the Clippers surge, or will the Lakers position themselves as threats for the playoff spots?
