Why the Clippers are the team to beat in West


The Los Angeles Clippers are going to win the NBA Western Conference.


For those who follow my work here at the Vegas Stats and Information Network, this statement comes as no surprise. Before the postseason, Los Angeles was my selection to represent its conference, and nothing, aside from the Clippers being eliminated, will change my mind. When Los Angeles was down 2-0 in its first-round series against Dallas, I was asked during an interview if I wanted to alter my prediction given the hole the Clippers had dug themselves. I refused. I doubled down on my belief in this team by betting them to win the NBA Finals at 11-1 before Game 6 against the Mavericks. Many, like colleague Tim Murray, do not believe this team has what it takes to win the conference, but I think the Clippers check all the boxes of title contenders.
