Los Angeles Lakers - Top rivalries
With both teams sharing the same venue, The Lakers clash against the Los Angeles Clippers, remains a constant source of entertainment. Despite the Clippers' recent performance, which sees them standing particularly high in the league, the Lakers can still boast a higher a win-rate between the two sides. There's little doubt that Clippers' squad features some of the most talented players within the NBA, making their games against the Lakers that much more hard-fought.
Another highlight for Lakers fans is their game against the Golden State Warriors. Things between the teams currently stand particularly heated as the Lakers recently boasted the signing of former Laker coach, Luke Walton, to now help bring the Lakers out of the bottom rung. Of course, the Warriors recent upgrade to their squad, 2.06-metre man Kevin "KD" Durant, the former star player Oklahoma City Thunder, has helped the Warriors prove a dominant force in recent games. With their matches consistently high in tension, there's no reason to think otherwise this year.
Another highlights is their games against the Boston Celtics, while it's true that most Celtics games are exciting affairs, this particular matchup stands as one of the most legendary rivalries in the sport. Having faced each other a record 12 times in one NBA Finals, the animosity between these two teams hit its peak back in the '80s, but the rivalry's fierceness is always in the undertows!
