The Credits: "Man On A Ledge"

Starring: Two franchises headed in different directions. What is the Lakers' identity so far? Mike Brown is unsure himself. Are the problems more on the defensive end or the offensive end? Tonight, the Lakers face their so-called "rivals", the Los Angeles Clippers. Last game, there were 5 technical fouls assessed, as the game became chippy. Matt Barnes had some choice words for Blake Griffin:

He's an amazing athlete. He can dunk, he can do everything, he just flops. I don't understand. He can do all this stuff on the offensive end but on the defensive end.. he just does some other stuff. I just don't understand.

Blake Griffin's response:

I don't really have much to say to him or to that. If he's mad that I try to take a charge, so be it. I'm not worried about Matt Barnes and if he thinks I'm flopping.

It should be an entertaining game. Let's hope the Lakers' first full-contact practice since training camp will sharpen their focus tonight.

Much more after the jump...
