Byron Scott insists there is no rivalry between the Lakers and Clippers. Maybe not, but the Clippers own the Lakers right now, pounding them again Wednesday night in the latest meeting of the Staples Center co-tenants. How bad has it been for the Lakers? The Clippers have beaten them an average of more than 27 points per game in their last 5 meetings.

Whether it was a coincidence or not, the Lakers won their 2nd game in 10 outings in the return of the comical and quotable Nick Young. Swaggy scored 17 points, then delivered some classic lines after the game, anointing himself as the NBA’s greatest shooter. He’s kidding (we think) of course.

Lakers 107, Hornets 92
They dropped purple and gold streamers after the Lakers won their 1st game Sunday night. They always do after a Laker win. But really?
Al Jefferson had some classic lines. “I think they were too easy for me. That’s why I couldn’t make my shots. What I mean by too easy is that they didn’t double team me. They just let me go one-on-one. I guess I’m just not used to that.”
We aren’t either.
The rest of the story…

Plenty of NBA clubs have needs. Some more than others. The latter sreams you Laker fans.
We’re on record as saying they’ll grab Marcus Smart, but the Mitch Kupchak in us says Aaron Gordon, if he’s around. Or will Joel Embiid fall into their lap?

The return of Dwight Howard for his 1st game against the Lakers in Staples Center since he became a Houston Rocket wasn’t even close. Howard and the Rockets’ starters were on the bench laughing for the entire 4th quarter.
“I thought we did the best thing we could possibly do and come out here and play well and get a win, and Dwight got us going early,” Chandler Parsons said put it mildly.

Everybody loves a train wreck, particularly when it’s the Lakers. Unless you’re a fan, folks around the country are wetting their pants and dying laughing at what’s become of L.A.’s finest. Remember when Vegas was giving 2-1 odds on the Lakers winning the NBA title? Now, according to VegasInsider.com, they are 12-1. Good luck betting on that.
And if you’re scoring at home (lucky you), the Heat remain the favorites to repeat at 7-4, while the Thunder (3-1) and the Clippers (4-1) are the other best bets.
The Lakers collapsed again tonight against James Harden and the Rockets, and Wednesday they visit the Spurs, who are getting 7-1 odds to win it all.
Friday, it’s back to the Ponderosa, where they will host Kevin Durant and the Thunder.
Some folks still believe they’ll right the ship and make the playoffs. Right now, we’re not 1 of them. Even if they do, they will be bounced in the 1st round. They can’t hide that awful bench. And they can’t hide those huge holes in their defense.

Questions always consume NBA fans on opening night. And they will have more as the season dribbles along. Can the Heat repeat as champs? Can the Lakers win the West? Can the Thunder continue to be the best in the West after trading James Harden? Or will the Nuggets emerge? In the East, can any club seriously challenge the Heat?
We know this. LeBron and the Heat are the favorites (7-4) to win it all again, while the Lakers (2-1) are the No. 2 pick. The Thunder (7-2) are the No. 3 choice, but after that it gets dicey.
