Sports analyst Skip Bayless compared the Clippers and Lakers situation at this point of the season. According to him, the problems that the Clippers are dealing with could give an edge to the Lakers as far as who the best team in the West is.
One key aspect for the Clippers, though, is the fact that their superstars are not afraid of LeBron James and can guard him, Bayless said.
The Lakers edged the Clippers by two points in the season re-opener in Orlando. The two Los Angeles teams are tied 2-2 in their matchups this season.
