National Basketball Association 2019-20 Season Week 1 Preview [Games, Power Rankings, Schedule & More]


The Clippers didn't have a ton of talent last season, as the team didn't send a single player to the All-Star game and LA's two best players, Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell, both come off the bench.

With under five minutes remaining in the game and the Clippers clinging to a 10-point lead, Lakers fans started chanting, "Let's go Lakers!". How many more times is Green, a notoriously streaky shooter, good for 28 points on 7-of-9 from deep?

James shot seven-of-19 for 18 points and Davis shot eight-of-21 for 25 points for the Lakers who are hoping their offseason changes will boost the team's fortunes after they finished a disappointing 37-45 and failed to qualify for the postseason for the sixth season in a row. When they found their lanes to the basket blocked by the length of the Clippers' long-armed defenders, they found Danny Green for 18 third-quarter points, an outburst that fueled a 15-0 Lakers run that leveled the score at 85-85 entering the fourth quarter.

It was their second unit that made them such a pain to play last season and while Kawhi and Paul George give them the superstar power to make a title push this season, their depth is a main reason why they're considered by many as favourites to win the championship.

Tropical Storm Warning Issued For Escambia Area
Then it could head toward the northern Gulf Coast and bring wind and rain to the area as soon as Friday or Saturday. This means we could see a tropical cyclone form over the northern Gulf of Mexico by the end of the week.

We Clippers fans get that Los Angeles is a Lakers town. A trade to the Clippers in July ensued, and now the duo joins one of the deepest rosters in the league. "He's a hell of a player, they've got a great team over there, so it should be fun".

Green is fresh off an National Basketball Association title with the Raptors last season but chose to join his former teammate, LeBron James, with the Lakers.

One could easily look at this as being a salty response from James. "Being here being able to see the guys get the ring, how passionate they were and how much it meant motivated me to try to get one".

"One last nice celebration for everybody", said Raptors coach Nick Nurse.

Rebekah Vardy threatens Coleen Rooney: 'I'll see you in court'
Obviously like everyone else you read it and are like, 'Oh my gosh.' But I wasn't as shocked seeing who it allegedly was. I have saved and screenshotted all the original stories which clearly show just one person has viewed them.

"I am just happy we came out and got a victory. I don't f-king know", he said. I'm going with who I know.

Davis said his chat was what you'd probably expect: "He don't talk much, so ... And LeBron is right there", Dudley said. In the past, when the Lakers were in "Showtime", the Clippers were in purgatory.

Frank Vogel replaced the latter and with the Western Conference in a state of flux, he has the chance to catapult the Lakers back among title favorites.

The two clubs won't meet again until Christmas Day. But we just missed a couple of shots, Quinn [Cook] missed a couple.

Power cut to millions as California faces heightened wildfire risks
More than half of the state's 58 counties are dealing with power outages, which are expected to last through Thursday afternoon. Around 234,000 customers were expected to lose power in the second wave, Saramento's KCRA-TV reported .

After deciding to leave the Toronto Raptors (having just led that organization to its first championship), Leonard could have followed Davis and jumped aboard the Lakers juggernaut.
