The Los Angeles Clippers will look to survive with the departure of All-Star and leader Chris Paul as they get ready to commence their season against a familiar foe in the likes of the Los Angeles Lakers with the Pacific Division showdown set to be broadcasted on TNT Thursday night at 10:30 p.m. and live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The Clippers enter their opener as a 5-point road favorites, according to MyBookie Sportsbook, with the total resting at a lofty 218½ points. The two division rivals met on three occasions last season with the Clippers taking two of the three contests and have dominated the Lakers winning 17 of their last 19 confrontations against their rivals.

Without Paul, who was traded to the Houston Rockets this offseason, the Clippers on paper looked to have regressed with Patrick Beverley and Milos Teodosis set to replace the 9-time All-Star. Beverley however, brings defense and toughness and has postseason experience which will deeply help the Clippers. Blake Griffin will need to step up as the leader in Paul’s absence.

The Lakers also will have new faces in their lineup with 2nd overall pick Lonzo Ball and 2 first-rounders in the likes of Kyle Kuzma and Josh Hart. However, D’angelo Russell, Nick Young and Timofey Mozgov are all gone so to expect the youngsters to replace them immediately would be wishful thinking. The Lakers are a work in progress and only hope to have a few more wins than what they produced last year. has the Clippers listed as 5-point favorites and the game's total is sitting at 218½ according to
