Skip Bayless on Clippers vs. Lakers: “Patrick Beverley made the king look like a court jester”
Sports analyst remembered the game between the Lakers and Clippers that took place in December 2019. The Clippers had a narrow win between 111 and 106. One of the biggest games in the game was Patrick Beverley’s block against LeBron James, who tried three hands, 3.4 seconds before the end and the Lakers two points behind.
“This piece on Christmas Day was the piece of the year for the aspiring clippers. Patrick Beverley made the king look like a jester. This made the clippers think, “We can play with them,” Bayless said on UNDISPUTED.
It’s worth noting that the two Los Angeles teams could potentially meet in the NBA final if the Liga decides to reset the playoffs, regardless of conferences. The Lakers and Clippers are expected to meet in the late stage of the playoffs, even if traditional playoff sowing is used. The two teams are expected to compete against each other in the final of the Western Conference.
