LA Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers would be the easiest matchup of the four for Golden State.

While they do possess a formidable defense, they’re far from the same level as the Jazz. And, following the trading of their star offense stud, Tobias Harris to Philly, the Clippers were left without a go-to scoring option, something even San Antonio has.

The Clippers have made it this far by having a stout defense and out-hustling their opponent. However, they do have the tenth most productive offense. Combined with the 18thmost effective defense, the Clippers have found a way to be a threat in the West.

Compared to the other three teams, they just aren’t as threatening. With Patrick Beverly leading the charge defensively and Danilo Gallinari offensively, the Clippers will struggle maintain ground with the league-best Warrior offense.

Next. Who would the Warriors select with the No.1 Draft pick?. dark

The Clippers should be an easy four wins for Golden State.
