Why the Portland Trail Blazers are better than the Los Angeles Lakers

The Los Angeles Clippers have been a mess since the offseason, and they’ve made the most of it.

They’ve made it to the Western Conference finals, which is a remarkable feat considering they were already the fourth seed in the West prior to the All-Star break.

Now, they’re in the playoffs, which means the Clippers have a chance to make the NBA Finals for the first time since 2004-05.

They haven’t been able to get past the San Antonio Spurs, the defending champions, but that’s largely because of Chris Paul.

But if Paul can stay healthy, the Clippers should be better than ever.
