The Clippers to avoid a patatrac, the Pelicans to finally take the right path. The Play-In on stage in Los Angeles is giving away the top seed number 8 in the West and the crossing with the Phoenix Suns. The Clips are returning from the defeat in Minneapolis, overwhelmed by Edwards and Russell. The Pels have closed the Spurs season. It is played in California because Coach Lue’s team finished the regular season 42 won and 40 lost, Coach Green’s team just won 36 and lost 46. We are not talking about two battleships, but it is also the fault of the absences: Kawhi Leonard on one side, Zion Williamson on the other, who both missed the season due to injury. With them it would have been a whole other music … The Clippers, last year in the final in the West, cannot afford a misstep. There are extenuating circumstances, George has also been missing out for a long time, but now he is available, so the apologies must be shelved. After the false start, the Pelicans have straightened their course and now, with an extra McCollum, arrived via trade late in the season, they have become insidious, at least.
