For one: which team will be better?

LA has always been the Lakers’ town but will that change in the 2022-23 season?
Things will start off with a bang this year as it’s been revealed that the two teams will play against each other in LA on October 20.
This will be a “road” game for the Clippers but that doesn’t really matter because they have a seven-game winning streak versus the Lakers.
The Clippers have a lot to prove this season: is their dominance over the Lakers a sure thing?
Los Angeles Legends
The Lakers have always been the most prominent team in the City of Angels.
But over the last few seasons, the Clippers have really rivaled that idea.
When Leonard and George joined the Clippers, they gave the team their best chance at overcoming the Lakers.
And even though they have found more success than the Lakers over the last two years, the Lakers have still gotten the most attention and, frankly, the most love from local residents.
Therefore, the October 20 game is a big deal because it could set the tone for the season, and it could be the first step to really claiming the title of the city’s most beloved team.
That will be hard to do and it’s a tall order but the Clippers are very ready to take over Los Angeles.
