LA Clippers forward Montrezl Harrell said the clash with the LA Lakers on Christmas Day will be a test for both teams.

“It’s going to be a test because we played them in the first week of the season and everybody was just hyped and ready to play basketball when we’re not playing against each other.

Now we have have PG and Kawhi back on the floor. The Lakers are in a good place with the way they’re playing right now so it’s going to be a test for both teams,” Harrell told Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.

“It’s going to be a special because I’ve never been a part of, out of my two teams I played for (the Clippers and the Rockets), to the point where I’m playing on Christmas Day,” Harrell added.

The Lakers are on top of the Western Conference with a 24-6 record, while the Clippers are at 22-10.
