This is weird. LAL beat MEM with giving up 18 turnovers. Howard, Blake and Kobe had 13 among them. Can't survive long doing that. Can they clean it up by tomorrow? That's what it will take to beat LAC.

QUICK PREVIEW
Lakers (40-36) at Clippers (50-26)
3:30 PM EST

LAKERS
Won last 3
15-24 on the road
23-23 vs. West

PROBABLE STARTERS
Steve Blake 6.2 points, 3.7 assists, 2.5 rebounds
Jodie Meeks 8.1 points, 0.8 assists, 2.2 rebounds
Kobe Bryant 27.0 points, 6.0 assists, 5.5 rebounds
Pau Gasol 13.2 points, 3.6 assists, 8.0 rebounds
Dwight Howard 16.6 points, 1.4 assists, 12.6 rebounds

CLIPPERS
Won last 1
29-9 at home
29-17 vs. West

PROBABLE STARTERS
Chris Paul 16.9 points, 9.6 assists, 3.7 rebounds
Willie Green 6.1 points, 0.7 assists, 1.3 rebounds
Caron Butler 10.5 points, 1.0 assists, 2.9 rebounds
Blake Griffin 18.1 points, 3.7 assists, 8.4 rebounds
DeAndre Jordan 8.8 points, 0.4 assists, 7.1 rebounds

PREDICTION
The Clippers have already claimed the season series with three wins, and now they're eyeing a season sweep. Thanks to their bench scoring, it looks like they'll complete that sweep. Their bench has scored 110 points in the three game season series (and at least thirty in each of them). LA's bench has accounted for 84 in those three games, giving the Clips a nice lift.

In the series Kobe has averaged 32.7 points, 5.0 assists, and 3.7 rebounds while shooting 59%. He hasn't had much help though. Chris Paul has averaged 24.0 point, 13.7 assists, and 4.3 rebounds (with 50% shooting). The big difference is that he has gotten plenty of help; for instance, Blake Griffin has averaged 20 and 7.7 boards.

Lakers 98
Clippers 101

I think we win by 13 pulling away late.
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

Blake and Meeks HAVE to play within their abilities today and knock down their shots....some D would help too.

Despise/loathe is more fitting, I believe. He was born to play for Boston.

Why is it that every time I see the Clippers breaking toward the basket Gasol is standing at the top of the key, flat-footed. Why is he THERE? Why is he standing there? WTF?

Howard looks pretty great in the post when he uses his left hand. No surprise to me. Don't know why he's set up more with the right the last two times. He looks his usual not great with his right.

The left should really be his go to. He's money with his left.
