Los Angeles Clippers defeated their neighbors, the Lakers, with a public humiliation on the court. LeBron James was left in the shadow of a phenomenal Reggie Jackson to lead his team on the rise and sink their Los Angeles derby under a barrage of criticism – Playon99 News

By Facundo Di Bona (@facudibona).

Oh, my mother, the Lakers: the team that can’t find its way, and can’t reverse the embarrassment of the last few games, fell again in an emotionally charged Los Angeles derby.

Shaquille O’Neal’s criticism is long gone, but the lapidary tweet that incriminated the Los Angeles Lakers as an embarrassing team was left bouncing around in the regular season.

In a new version of the Los Angeles derby, LeBron James‘ team (26+8+4) was unable to beat Reggie Jackson‘s Clippers (36+8+9) and, after aspiring to the NBA All-Star Game, they may even be out of the Play-Ins.

The Los Angeles Clippers completed a new victory to add to their three previous regular-season victories over the Lakers and are going all out for the NBA against their classic rival.

The Lakers had a dreadful start that miraculously ended with a 36-31 run in the first quarter.

In the following quarter, they threatened a comeback and scored at least two points to go to the break with a generous 66-63 in favor of the Clippers.

Neither the few points -for him- of LeBron, nor the minimal 12 points of Malik Monk or the poor half-hour of Russell Westbrook (17+8+3), could cover the horrendous third quarter of Los Angeles Lakers: 40-18 for Clippers and a 106-81 margin.

Again the same story for the Lakers: constant free throws, 12 of 35 in three-pointers, 14 turnovers, and an opponent that shot easy to take an easy victory.

In the last quarter, the Los Angeles Clippers relaxed because of the tremendous difference taken from their biggest rivals and kept the series barely even to end with a score of 132-111.

The Los Angeles Clippers move into eighth place, while the Lakers have suffered their fourth loss in a row and are ninth (27-35) in the Western Conference.

Below them are the New Orleans Pelicans (26-36) and Portland Trail Blazers (25-37) because if there is something missing in this story, it is LeBron James’ team not even getting into the NBA Finals Play-In.
