Los Angeles Lakers vs Los Angeles Clippers prediction

The Los Angeles Lakers have won 2 of the last 3 meetings against the Clippers, and they'll have their chances here, considering the Clips won't have PG13. However, the Clippers have owned the Lakers over the years, which includes wins in 8 of the last 10 meetings. The Clippers have also been far and away more consistent overall this season, and aren't a team I'm excited to fade in the small favorite role. The Lakers have some showing and proving to do if we're being honest. Give me the Clippers and the small chalk.
