Los Angeles Lakers Form

Los Angeles enter this matchup on the back of a win and in improved form thanks to three wins in their last four games.

The Lakers ended 2023 with back-to-back defeats, and the skid then reached four games as they lost their first two games of 2024.

They stopped the rot with a 106-103 victory over the LA Clippers, and then backed that up with a 132-131 win against Toronto.

Los Angeles failed to keep that run going as they then lost 127-109 to Phoenix and 132-125 to Utah, before rebounding to beat Oklahoma City 112-105 and Dallas 127-110.

The Lakers were unable to make it three-in-a-row as they were beaten 130-112 by Brooklyn, but they did hit back immediately courtesy of a 134-110 win against Portland on Sunday night.

LA Clippers Form

LA enter this showdown with the Lakers on a good run of form, having now won 10 of their last 12 games.

The Clippers dropped their final two games before Christmas, but responded in emphatic fashion as a 113-104 victory over Charlotte sparked a five-game win streak.

They then beat Memphis 117-105 and Miami 121-104, before heading out on the road to down Phoenix 131-122 and New Orleans 111-95.

LA’s streak was ended by a 106-103 loss to the Lakers, but they rebounded quickly to beat Phoenix 138-111 and Toronto 126-120 at home, before heading to Memphis to down the Grizzlies 128-119.

The Clippers were then beaten 109-105 in Minnesota, only to respond at home with a 128-117 win against Oklahoma City and a 125-114 victory over Brooklyn.

Verdict

The Clippers have found some form and have been covering consistently, so we expect them to take advantage of a LeBron-less Lakers team.
