The Los Angeles Lakers played on Thursday night, giving them another chance to turn the season around and secure a much-needed win.
Instead, the team left the game defeated yet again and continued this atrocious season that just won’t end.
The Kawhi-less, PG-less, Powell-less Clippers have opened up the 2nd half on a 32-6 run over the Lakers.

As pointed out by Dave McMenamin, the Clippers were lacking their three biggest stars and yet they still opened the second half of the game with a 32-6 run over the Lakers.
In the end, the Clippers ran over the Lakers and beat them by a whopping 21 points.
Of course, at this point in the season, you shouldn’t have expected anything less.
Lakers Long Gone
The Lakers’ loss to the Clippers on Thursday is the seventh in their past eight games and their fourth straight since the All-Star break.
There were some people who felt that the Lakers would have used the break as an opportunity to reassess, get things together, and approach the last leg of the season in a new way.
That definitely didn’t happen.
At this point, most LA fans are wishing the team could just forfeit the rest of the season and start focusing on next year.
Instead, there are still a few more weeks to watch the team suffer and continually promise that they still have a chance at making the Finals.
But all of their promises and talk will be disregarded because it’s quite obvious that things aren’t changing.
The Lakers’ front office has their work cut out for them in the offseason because they will need to make significant changes to prevent this from ever happening again.
