Everything is almost ready for the start of the new NBA season 2022- 2023 and the Lakers hope to have a season of revenge for last season. Little by little, the official games for the upcoming season are starting to be announced, and it has already been announced that on October 18 the Lakers will open the season with the presentation of the Golden State Warriors' championship rings at the Chase Center. It also became known that on December 25 the Los Angeles Lakers will be visiting Luka Dončić's Dallas Mavericks and finally it became known that on October 20 just two days after the presentation of the Lakers, they will be facing for the first time in the campaign their awkward neighbor Los Angeles Clippers.

According to Shams Charania, this will be the first game between the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers and it will be the first game between the two teams since 2020 in which the four superstars will play, if everything goes according to plan. We are talking about Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, LeBron James and Anthony Davis. The first two are joined by John Wall, who arrived from the Houston Rockets. We are also awaiting the possible arrival of Kyrie Irving to the Lakers.

The Lakers have a score to settle with the Clippers because last season out of the four games they played between the two teams, the Lakers lost all four, one of them by more than 20 points despite the absence of Kawhi Leonard. The Lakers and Clippers currently hold a streak in favor of the Blues over the last 10 seasons. The Los Angeles Clippers have won 32 games while the Lakers have only won seven.

The start of the season will not be easy at all as you have to face the current champions, the Golden State Warriors, and one of the main candidates to win the title this season, the Los Angeles Clippers, as long as they stay healthy. It will be a good two-game benchmark to see what we can expect from our Los Angeles Lakers in the rest of the season.

All set for the battle for LA

Practically everything is ready, but we have to wait to see what happens with Russell Westbrook and if Kyrie Irving arrives or not, as well as the possible arrival of Patrick Beverley to Los Angeles Lakers. On the other hand, the Los Angeles Clippers are practically ready and have a stellar reinforcement in John Wall, who by the way was close to joining the Lakers last season in exchange for Russell Westbrook, but the situation ended up getting complicated and the whole trade was canceled.
