The upcoming NBA season is going to be very intense between the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers.

Now we know when these two squads will face off in the 2022-23 season.
The two will meet on October 20, with the Lakers playing at home.
Then on November 9, the Lakers and Clippers will duke it out again, with the Clippers claiming home-court advantage.
On both January 24 and April 5, both teams will meet again.
You can expect a lot of fireworks and high tension for each of these games – but is one team the odds-on favorite to win it all?
Lakers Vs Clippers
There is no doubt that the Clippers are poised to win these games.
However, now the team will have both of those guys healthy and ready to play – and Paul George will also be in better shape than he was last year.
But no one should count the Lakers out entirely.
Additionally, new head coach Darvin Ham might figure out how to make this group of athletes work, even if Westbrook is still on board.
The bottom line is that these games are going to be wild.
