"An upset loss to start the season, the Clippers need to bounce back and take a victory over, who should be, their lown challengers in the Pacific Division. Still early in the year, but every win counts at the end, namely when it comes down to tie-breaker situations and division record plays a part."
Q's Key To The Game:
- Defend the Arc. In their disappointing loss to start the year, the Clippers allowed the Lakers to shoot 14-29 from three point range (8-21 themselves). A good amount were also unchallenged looks, and you can not give the Warriors the same opportunities, especially considering they are coming off a 15-27 performance from range.
- REBOUND. Another key factor to the loss was the fact the Clippers, minus DeAndre Jordan, were allergic to missed shots. The Lakers won the rebounding match-up without an issue, 52-40, and grabbed a solid 18 offensive rebounds. Can not give the Warriors the same amount of second chance opportunities.
- Just play. I don't know how else to explain it, but get on the court, and play.
Q's Prediction: 114-109 Clippers Win
