To say it’s been a wild NBA season so far would be an understatement. After having just a little over two months to prepare, the first few games naturally didn’t go as planned for most teams, as the standings show.

This Clippers team is mentally weak at the moment. Outside of Kawhi, what has any of this Clippers roster won? If you were being extremely harsh then you could say this Clippers team is full of posers, chokers, high-school bullies who act tough until they get socked in the jaw then proceed to run home to their mothers.
The NBA returned at a break-neck pace on Thursday night as both games went down the wire. After enjoying a tasty opening bout between the Jazz and Pelicans, the premier match-up between the two L.A. giants did not disappoint with the Lakers narrowly besting the Clippers 103-101.
