At long last, the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Clippers on Sunday thanks to a few impressive performances from LeBron James, Anthony Davis and ... Avery Bradley.
That’s right: Bradley, who’s best known for his work on the defensive end, scored a season-high 24 points on 9-17 shooting from the field, including going 6-12 from 3-point range. James, Davis and Bradley were the only three players to finish the game in double figures.
The Lakers know more or less what they’re going to get from James and Davis on a game-to-game basis, but the same can’t be said of their supporting cast. Even their most proven veterans have been inconsistent this season, like Danny Green and Rajon Rondo.
But, as we know, the NBA Playoffs are a completely different animal, and on today’s episode of “Lakers, Explained,” our hosts, Harrison and Christian, talked about a few players that could make a difference for Los Angeles in a playoff series. They both had different ideas about which guys might make the biggest differences when the games really start to count.
Then, they also discussed a few personnel decisions that could potentially make or break the team’s postseason potential, and what Frank Vogel’s rotation would look like as a result of those decisions. The microscope will be bigger than ever once the playoffs roll around, and we are almost there.
