Default Let's talk about the potential Clippers vs Lakers 1st Round

Clippers 2nd seed. Lakers 7th seed. Please make this happen. Step it up Lakers or you won't even make 8th seed.

This isn't 2008 bro. Clippers have had a 70+ percent Clippers crowd at home games for the last few years in H2H Clippers assigned home games. Still a very good amount of Lakers fans but not a home court advantage really. More of it not being a true road team disadvantage.

Clippers would basically lose HCA...why would you want this?

Not only that but all these old guys get to stay in LA and rest rather than go on long road trips.

Unless the Grizzlies and Clippers end up 4 and 5 again. Grizzlies might not make it out of the first round again..depending on the match up.

would be a fantastic sight for the city of LA for sure. And one team would get bragging rights. The travel would be horrendous tho
