Los Angeles Clippers
With the best point guard in the league, in Chris Paul, and the most explosive forward in the game, in Blake Griffin, the Los Angeles Clippers have the best opportunity to go deep in the postseason than any of our “underdogs.” Despite dropping three of their final four games, which cost them any chance of beating out the Lakers for the Pacific Division title and perhaps a chance to open the playoffs at home, the Clippers’ front line is so big that they can match up with any team. DeAndre Jordan can really guard the basket and Griffin is a terror any where around the rim. But in order for Lob City to go far, CP3 needs to be healthy. If his strained groin doesn’t heal in time for their series against Memphis, Griffin will need to step up and prove that he’s more than just a high-flying act.
