Los Angeles Lakers vs Los Angeles Clippers – NBA- On the night that will mark the return of the NBA games
Los Angeles Lakers vs Los Angeles Clippers –The Lakers and the Clippers are featured in the 4th edition of the Los Angeles “derby”, on a game that will take place, as we know, behind closed doors, at The Arena (WWOS), in the Orlando “bubble”.
The Los Angeles Lakers occupied, at the time of the stoppage on last March, the 1st place of the Western Conference, with a 77.8% win rate (49-14), against the Clippers’ 68.8% (44-20), who were in 2nd place.
In the short term, the objective of Frank Vogel’s team will be confirming the 1st place.
On their last official game, the Lakers were surprised by the Nets (102-104).
On the 3 preparation games played last week, the Lakers lost against Dallas Mavericks (104-108) and they’ve beaten Orlando Magic (119-112) and Washington Wizards (123-116).
The Los Angeles Clippers are one of the main favourites to win the NBA title in 2019/20.
Right now, Doc Rivers’ side occupies the 2nd place (68.8%, 44-20) on the standings of the Western Conference, 5 and half games behind the lead occupied by their rivals LA Lakers.
On the last game played on past March, the Clippers won on the road against the Warriors by 131-107.
On the preparation games, they’ve gotten 2 victories, against Orlando Magic (99-90) and Washington Wizards (105-100) and 1 loss, against the Sacramento Kings (102-106).
After having lost two out of 3 “derbies” on the regular season in 2019/20, the Lakers will have a lot of motivation to return to active with a victory,
even because it is not only about restarting on the right foot, but also about leaving a warning for their main rivals on the fight for the title (and likely opponents on the conference finals).

Los Angeles Lakers vs Los Angeles Clippers – Betting Tips:
Upon a Clippers’ team with some absences and that have been missing some players on the preparation for the return, I believe that the Lakers might have the advantage, especially when exploring the interior game, where Doc Rivers won’t be able to count with Harrel and will have Zubac limited to 25 minutes.
