Far from their best game the LA Lakers are trailing by 14 points against the Clippers in what could be the last game for the purple and gold as a home-away team in their arena as the Clippers will be moving to another "home" for next season.

Despite the best efforts of the Lakers starters, their role players continue to underperform and are the reason the team can't go the extra mile to win key games like tonight's contest against the Clippers.

Anthony Davis and LeBron James are the best stars of the team with 12 points scored each while D'Angelo Russell, Austin Reaves, and Rui Hachimura have been solid.

But the Lakers need Taurean Prince, Cam Reddish, Jaxson Hayes, and Spencer Dinwiddie to be better and coach Ham needs to give more playing chances to the young guard Max Christie who has been good for the group.

Even with the return of Cam Reddish, Darvin Ham will continue to stick to the starting lineup of the last 7 games as the team is 6-1 since starting with Rui Hachimura instead of Taurean Prince of Reddish.
