Mental makeup

The Clippers are the tougher team. Nothing fazes Kawhi Leonard. We all know that. We also know that Patrick Beverley, Marcus Morris, Montrezl Harrell, and Lou Williams won’t back down from anyone. We have proof that Beverley, specifically, is not afraid of guarding LeBron James when the game is on the line.

It’s just how they were built this season. The team proved in the postseason last year that they weren’t scared even as the underdogs. Leonard and George are the perfect types of players to add to the already tough constructed core.

To make themselves even more ready, they added both Marcus Morris and Reggie Jackson at the trade deadline. Both are known for their tough-nosed play and will have no fear when the Clippers inevitably face the Lakers. This group being not afraid of a big moment will be key, especially how talented their opponent is.

Next. The Clippers have been having private workouts. dark

Both teams will be ready and as mentioned in the previous slide, we know that both will get top tier play from their superstars. The Clippers’ depth, coaching, and mental makeup will give them the necessary advantage to win a series against the Lakers.
