I Los Angeles Clippers are struggling mightily in this start of the NBA season.
So far the Los Angeles Islanders have had only three wins, compared to seven losses. In particular, the performance has dropped since the debut of James Harden: With him on the team, the red and whites have lost the last six consecutive games.
The need to find new balance is evident. Also actively contributing to the search for solutions would be Russell Westbrook. The point guard, in fact, reportedly took a step back by asking coach Tyronn Lue to start him permanently from the bench, so that the starting five could find the right fit.

We will see if the coach will please him and especially if this move will be enough to lift the Clippers’ season.
