The Los Angeles Clippers received good news the other night when they claimed a much-needed win against the Dallas Mavericks.
This ended a six-game losing streak and brought their record to 22-21.
That means the Clippers are now the 6th team in the West, which is far from where they want to be but better than where they were.
Are things turning around and looking up for the Clippers?
That remains to be seen but apparently, there is some drama brewing behind the scenes.

NBA analyst Richard Jefferson touched upon this possible turmoil inside the team’s front office.
“I’m hearing grumblings that people up top are having opinions about who should be playing. There’s a lot of cooks in the kitchen and that is never a good recipe.”
We don’t know who Jefferson is referring to and what their opinions are, but he’s right about one thing: having too many cooks in a team’s kitchen is never a good thing.
There are surely many people inside the organization, from the players to the coaches to the management, who have different ideas of what should happen next for the franchise.
Although they probably don’t agree on much they can certainly see eye-to-eye about one thing: time is running out for this iteration of the team.
Kawhi Leonard is looking more and more like his regular self but Paul George is still suffering multiple absences and the team is in a pretty deep hole if they wish to become Finals contenders, as they promised they would be.
Multiple analysts and spectators have said that if the season doesn’t pan out, there is a good chance that it could be blown up and rebuilt from scratch.
Therefore, whatever plan is agreed upon needs to be a successful one, or else we may be seeing the last days of Leonard and George playing together in LA.
