Lakers legend and former president of basketball operations, Magic Johnson, talked about the differences between the Lakers and the Clippers and which is the better team right now.
According to Johnson, the Clippers are able to close the games better and that is the reason why they defeated the Lakers twice this season. He also added that the Clippers have a better bench.
For the Lakers to take down the Clippers in playoffs, Johnson says they need a third scorer. Lou Williams is that guy for the Clippers. Johnson is not sure who could take that role with the Lakers though. He mentioned Kyle Kuzma and Avery Bradley as those who have the potential to be the third scorer.
