With Reggie Jackson scoring around 12 of his season-high 36 points in the fourth quarter, the Los Angeles Clippers routed the LA Lakers yet again. With a scoreline of 132-111, this has been the four-game sweep by one team from Los Angeles over the other. The team from Los Angeles managed to outscore their cross-hallway rivals 37-10 late into the third before they coasted merrily to their fourth consecutive victory in the last eight days. This would also include their two victories over the LA Lakers.
Clippers Have Been Enjoying A Good Run of Games
Reggie Jackson from the Clippers hit around four 3-pointers, and went on to embarrass a major succession of the Lakers defenders, after an impressive display in the fourth quarter that saw a major portion of the team chanting his name. After Westbrook and Jackson clashed and had a few heated words exchanged, Jackson went on to make what we call a pro-gamer move by drilling a 3-pointer right over Westbrook’s defense.
Although the Lakers couldn’t defeat the Clippers, LeBron James did have a pretty impressive game with 26 points and eight rebounds. The Lakers have been going through a pretty rough phase, having lost four straight, and seven of eight to fall a season-worst eight games below .500. The club which started the campaign hoping for a championship is currently languishing at the bottom- two games ahead of 11th-place Portland.
The Clippers have been enjoying quite a torrid reign of form, having won seven out of their last eight games. What makes the win even more impressive is that they have done it without the services of their three best players- Paul George, Kawhi Leonard, and Norman Powell.
