8/5/2020*OKLAHOMA CITY              
LA CLIPPERS: LAST SEASON: 48-34, lost 4-2 to Golden State in Western Conference first round.
COACH: Doc Rivers (seventh season with Clippers, 307-185; 21st season overall, 894-658).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: F Kawhi Leonard (30.5 ppg with Toronto), F Paul George (23.7 with Oklahoma City), G Patrick Beverley (7.6), G Landry Shamet (9.1), C Ivica Zubac (8.9).
KEY LOSSES: G Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, F Danilo Gallinari, F Wilson Chandler, G-F Garrett Temple, G Sindarius Thornwell, G Tyrone Wallace.
KEY ADDITIONS: Leonard, George.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: It's all about newcomers Leonard and George. They'll be the top two options on offense. Leonard is coming off a season in which he led Toronto to its first NBA championship (and earned his second ring). Leonard returning home was contingent upon pairing with George, also an LA-area native. George, who finished third in MVP voting last season, can guard nearly any position while being a huge scoring threat. Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell, the NBA's top bench-scoring duo last season, will get starter-level minutes again.
OUTLOOK: No more watching other teams go deep in the playoffs. The NBA's balance of power has shifted to the Clippers, who have never advanced beyond the second round let alone won a championship. All that's expected to change behind Leonard and George, both regarded as two of the best two-way players in the league. The Clippers had to give up talented veteran Gallinari and star-in-the-making Gilgeous-Alexander, but they kept Harrell, Williams and re-signed Beverley, whose sole job will be using his tenacious D to keep others from scoring. The Clippers are favorites to win it all, a stunning shift for a franchise that has spent much of its existence as a punch line.
LA LAKERS: LAST SEASON: 37-45, finished 10th in Western Conference.
COACH: Frank Vogel (first season with Lakers; ninth season overall, 304-291).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Rajon Rondo (9.2 ppg), G Danny Green (10.3 with Toronto), F LeBron James (27.4), F Anthony Davis (25.9 with New Orleans), C JaVale McGee (12.0).
KEY LOSSES: F Brandon Ingram, G Lonzo Ball, G Josh Hart, G Lance Stephenson.
KEY ADDITIONS: Davis, Green, C Dwight Howard, G Avery Bradley, F Jared Dudley, G Quinn Cook.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: The evolving chemistry between James and Davis will be at the forefront, but the Lakers' success in creating an immediate title contender could hinge on the supporting cast. Green must keep the outside shooting proficiency he demonstrated last season for Toronto, while Kyle Kuzma must find a role on a reconfigured roster. The Lakers' biggest early-season subplot of all might be around Howard, whose return to LA after six seasons away could be greeted by boos or cheers.
OUTLOOK: An aspiring super team takes shape around James and Davis, who joined forces to do a whole lot more than end the Lakers' franchise-record playoff drought at six years. LA expects to be a title contender with two of the NBA's best players anchoring a lineup featuring perimeter shooting from Green and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, fast-break proficiency from Alex Caruso and Kuzma, and sturdy defense from Bradley, Rondo and McGee. Vogel's ability to fold this talent into a cohesive unit over the next few months will determine whether the Lakers can do something special in the spring.

Clippers, Lakers return in high-stakes showdown

The Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers restart their abbreviated NBA campaign Thursday in Kissimmee, Fla., in a key Western Conference matchup that has major playoff ramifications.

The game will be the first between the two clubs in more than four months. A positive coronavirus test of Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert locked down the league before a road game in Oklahoma City on March 11.

Three days before, the Lakers beat the Clippers 112-103 for their first win in three meetings between the clubs this season.

The restart has created its own unique challenges for the Lakers and Clippers inside the so-called bubble at the Walt Disney World Resort.

The conference-leading Lakers are favored over the second-place Clippers, who are 5 1/2 games back in the standings as they begin an eight-game sprint for seeding before the playoffs begin.

LeBron James said he's ready.

"I'll be as locked in as I can be under the circumstances," said James on Tuesday. "I won't cheat my teammates, I won't cheat our fans and I won't cheat myself. I'll be ready to go."

Whether All-Star forward and leading scorer Anthony Davis is ready isn't clear. Davis got poked in his right eye during Saturday's scrimmage against the Orlando Magic. He did not play in the Lakers' scrimmage against the Washington Wizards on Monday and sat out practice Tuesday.

"He's day to day and while he's still dealing with discomfort, there is some concern that he could potentially not play Thursday," said Lakers coach Frank Vogel, according to the Orange County Register. "But we're hopeful that he does and we'll see how that plays out."

Davis is averaging a team-high 26.4 points and 9.4 rebounds per game in 55 contests.

The Clippers might go without guard Lou Williams, who is officially a game-time decision but is quarantined after being photographed at an Atlanta strip club during an excused absence.

Williams, who said he visited the establishment for food, is also likely out for Saturday's contest against the New Orleans Pelicans.

"We know that a lot of teams have had their guys throughout. We haven't," said Clippers coach Doc Rivers. "We've had up to five of our key players out - six, at one point. So it's not been the way we planned it when we got here, but things don't go as planned all the time and you've got to adjust, and I think our team is doing that."

Forward-center Montrezl Harrell, who left the facility July 17 for an emergency family matter, is officially out.

Guard Patrick Beverly, who also left Orlando for a family matter, rejoined the club last weekend, as did center Ivica Zubac and guard Landry Shamet, both of whom had tested positive recently for coronavirus. All three could be available against the Lakers.

Both teams also made additions during the break. Guards Dion Waiters and JR Smith will replace guard Avery Bradley, who opted out weeks due to coronavirus concerns, and guard Rajon Rondo is recovering from surgery on a broken thumb.

The Clippers added forward-center Joakim Noah during the NBA stoppage. Noah is listed as a game-time decision.
