Lakers vs. Clippers rivalry is getting more interesting with time and both the sides are trying everything possible. It seems that the Clippers are slightly getting an edge with the recent events. DeMarcus Cousins got injured recently and might miss out the entire NBA 2019-20 season. LeBron James and Anthony Davis needed a third-star player and Cousins could have done the job.
The Lakers are now again looking for a player of high caliber and things can get even worse for them. LA Clippers have signed Tyronn Lue as their new assistant coach and it could help them in winning the Lakers vs. Clipper battle. For those of who don’t know, Tyronn Lue was the former coach of James and knows every meaningful detail about his playing style.
Tyronn Lue as Assistant Coach in Clippers
The addition of Tyronn Lue in the coaching staff of the Los Angeles Clippers have much more than it shows. It is not just about making the Lakers vs. Clippers better with Doc Rivers as the head coach and Lue as the assistant coach. The fact that Lue knows LeBron James from inside out could be a big factor in the whole deal.

Tyronn Lue has coached LeBron for more than three years and knows so much about his gameplay and strategy. Even without the James factor, Lue is a talented coach with high motivational skills. The combination of Rivers and Lue could make the Lakers vs. Clippers in the favor of Kawhi Leonard and company.
Lakers vs. Clippers gets Interesting
Kawhi Leonard, Paul George and Patrick Beverly is turning out to be the best trio of NBA. While the Lakers roster is pretty much imbalanced, the Clippers are a stable team since the last few seasons. Leonard is at the top of his game and George has also recovered from his shoulder injury.
Lakers vs. Clippers have gotten so much interesting now and it might again take a new turn soon. Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors are also slowly rising in the race and might even overcome the whole Lakers vs. Clippers thing for NBA 2020 finals.
