Los Angeles Clippers vs Los Angeles Lakers prediction

I'm surprised this line is only four points, to be honest with you. The Los Angeles Lakers have been a mess since winning the tournament, and it's to the point where LeBron is saying publicly the team sucks. The Los Angeles Clippers are probably the hottest team in the league right now, and they've already owned the Lakers over the years, winning 9 of the last 10 meetings. I want nothing to do with the Lakers, and I have no interest in stepping in front of the Clippers. I'll lay the points.
