Los Angeles Lakers vs Los Angeles Clippers prediction

The Los Angeles Lakers have been a hit or miss team all season long, and now they're going to be without LeBron, which doesn't help. The Los Angeles Clippers are playing their best ball of the season, and they've covered 7 of their last 10 games. Also, the Clippers have won 8 of the last 10 games against the Lakers and have covered 7 of those games. Thick line, but it's hard to ignore the one-sided history between these LA teams, and the LeBron injury has to be factored in as well. I'll lay the chalk with the Clippers at home.
