It’s one thing to lose to the NBA’s elite teams, but the Clippers are dropping games to middle-of-the-pack teams as well. The reason is simple; they don’t have a closer.

Three reasons why the Lakers’ 2017 start is more sustainable than last year’s
Follow @planetasha The Los Angeles Lakers are off to another surprisingly decent start to their season but the 2017 Lakers have a better chance of sustaining it than last year’s team.

Kyle Kuzma is better than anyone imagined but should still come off the bench
Follow @planetasha The Los Angeles Lakers’ rookie sensation Kyle Kuzma is better than anyone expected but he should still come off the bench this season.

Follow @planetsaha Although it’s early in the season, Blake Griffin has led the Los Angeles Clippers to the top spot in the Western Conference.
