The latest team to find itself embroiled in the congested and hectic schedule of the bubble, for the Clippers, today’s i8mminent contest against Brooklyn Nets will be a good test of their resources. Despite being without the services of Leonard the last time around, the team managed to pull off an enthralling 122-117 win against Portland Trail Blazers to move step closer towards ascertaining their spot in second place.
With Denver Nuggets right below them continuously breathing down their necks, the Clippers know they can’t afford to slipup today either. And after a humdinger of a win yesterday, one which saw tempers flare as Damian Lilllard and Paul George were involved in a fracas, the Clippers are set to be buoyed ahead of the impending encounter.
Dismayed by the manner in which Patrick Beverly and Paul George were indulging in shenanigans on the day, Damian ended up taking a jibe at George after the clash. He hit out at George’s willingness to jump ships and opt for teams on the ascendancy, a comment which was rebutted by George to see the feud only further flare up.

Dream 11 Picks
The 14.3 ppg Tyler Johnson has to his name this season have played a pivotal role in taking the Nets’ side into the ensuing round. The point guard has been a crucial component of his side’s attacking docket, a player who ability to shoot highly from the deep makes him a talismanic name for the club.
The bubble round has been one where players have managed to rise to the occasions and make a name for themselves. And one such player is Brooklyn Nets’ Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot, someone who has top scored for the side in the bubble with a staggering 14.6 ppg.
Kawhi Leonard missed out on yesterday’s tie due to a sore knee but the point guard should be back for this one. And up against a defence which has waned and unravelled, Leonard’s endeavours on the court can easily translate with a clean show of shooting field points with a high conversion rate.
He made the news for his squabble proceeding the tie but Paul George was the talk of the town for his game winning performance yesterday as well. He drooped 21 points on the day, making the most of Portland’s inabilities to defend corners to see George open up the zone for himself.
13 points and 8 rebounds to go with them the last time he took to the court saw JaMychal Green assert his credential on the court. The player showcased his forte when it comes to delivering alleyoops and reverse scoops to see the power forward be our pick from the Lakers.
In a closely contested affair, one eventually determined by 5 points, defence needed to be pinch perfect for the Lakers. And in centre Ivica Zubac, they had an absolute juggernaut at their disposal, someone whose 12 rebounds not only saw him latch onto the second chance points but also pick up pivotal quick break points for the club.
Ever since recovering from his injury, Jarrett Allen has taken over the side’s scoring ambit. Providing major boost to the Nets’ attacking gameplan with 11 points and 8 rebounds the last time around, Allen’s display ended up forming a major part of his side’s win.
12 ppg and 6 rpg see Rodions Kurucs join up with him, a plucky player more than willing to screen and guard oppositions.
Clippers’ top scorer in the league, Leonard will be our star player while George is the pro player.
