The L.A. Clippers seemed on the verge of getting over their postseason hump after defeating the San Antonio Spurs in a tremendous seven-game series in the first round of last season’s playoffs. However, the Clippers, after jumping to a 3-1 series lead against the Houston Rockets in the West Semifinals, collapsed by losing the next three games and were eliminated despite being heavily favored to move on. The L.A. Clippers have been the best team in LA the past few seasons, consistently winning 50 or more games in the regular season. Coming into the new season, not much has changed with their roster, but they have added some key names to their squad such as Paul Pierce and gave away Matt Barnes and Spencer Hawes. The Clippers are expected to be a top seed in the West, but can they go beyond just a semifinal appearance.
