Ranter X: Los Angeles Clippers Should Not Be Considered One of the Top NBA Teams
It’s been over one month since the Los Angeles Clippers lost a game as they entered Tuesday’s game against the Denver Nuggets riding a 17-game winning streak. Unfortunately in sports, all good things must come to an end–which the Clippers learned the hard way.
Los Angeles saw their impressive win streak come to an end after their 92-78 loss to Denver on Tuesday as they couldn’t seem to get anything consistent going in the second half. While the 17-game winning streak was impressive, the Clippers were still criticized as many believed they hadn’t faced any legitimate contenders.
With the Nuggets being one of the top teams in the Western Conference–it’s difficult not to wonder if the Clippers should still be considered one of the top teams in the Western Conference.
There’s still plenty of time left in the NBA season before anyone can determine who the top team is and Los Angeles still has plenty to prove before they can be seen as one of the top teams. Sure, having Blake Griffin and Chris Paul in the lineup certainly gives them an advantage, but the Clippers don’t have the type of experience in the playoffs like some of the other top teams in the league.
Let’s see how this team is performing once March and April rolls around before judging how good the Clippers really are before anyone labels them as one of the top teams in the league.
