The old and slow LA Lakers continue their troubles this season on defense. When facing teams with quick guards they team struggles as we see an anemic Philadelphia 76ers team that can’t score tally up 103 points against the Lakers as LA loses 103-99 on New Year’s Day. The Lakers have won six of their past eight games pretty much by outscoring opponents. The Lakers rank 25th in the NBA by allowing 100 points a game. The loss to the 76ers seems to douse a lot of the excitement for the Lakers with the return of Steve Nash to the team. The schedule gets very tough for the Lakers as upcoming are Denver, Houston, San Antonio and Oklahoma City. The Clippers return home after two road games that saw double digit defeats. The team was getting headlined on the ESPN Sportscenters following a 17 game win streak so Denver and Golden St were fired up to face the Clippers. The results were double digit losses by the Clips in each game. The Clippers defend very well this season as the club gives up just 93 points a game which is fourth best in the NBA. The Clippers guard rotation of Chris Paul, Jamaal Crawford and Eric Bledsoe will be a match up nightmare for this old Lakers team. The Clippers have the best bench in basketball.
