Los Angeles Clippers: 8-1

From here , it is all untrue. No pretenders. No”if a few things go right” aspirants. No more”maybe, just maybe” hopefuls.
Real contenders only.
The Clippers, by virtue of being mentioned after that debut, are just one such contender.
Free of the shadow cast by Donald Sterling and imbued with the frightening enthusiasm and deep pockets of fresh owner Steve Ballmer, the Clips will look to lock up a top-three seed in the West again. This moment, tough, they’ll hope to advance to the Conference Finals for the first time in franchise history.
The majority of the responsibility falls upon the recognizable shoulders of Chris Paul and Blake Griffin, two players who could easily lead the Clips to yet another No. 1 finish in offensive performance. Together with Doc Rivers’ leadership and (hopefully) another step from DeAndre Jordan, L.A. is in excellent position for another deep playoff series.
There are concerns, however.
The wing positions are somewhat weak behind J.J. Redick. Matt Barnes is supposed to start at the 3, and at age 34 that there should be real worries that his 4.2 percentage (yes, 4.2 percent) shooting from long range during the preseason is not as a blip and more a signal that his offensive game has dropped off a cliff.
Spencer Hawes has been the team’s big offseason get, and as precious as he is as a passer and floor-spacer, he won’t scare anybody on protection.
If the offense remains elite and Rivers can handle his frontcourt rotation wisely, the Clippers could be slightly better than they were a year ago. That may be sufficient for them to reach heights they have never reached before.
