LAC vs CHA Dream 11: Can the Clippers bounce back after a shock loss to the Suns?

The Los Angeles Clippers started the season in fine fashion beating the LA Lakers and the Golden State Warriors.

Even without the services of Paul George, the Clippers had enough talent to get the better of their rivals.

However, they were brought down to earth after the Phoenix Suns rose to beat them in the last game.

Kawhi Leonard and Montrezl Harrell scored a ton but they couldn’t keep their unbeaten run going.

The Charlotte Hornets are 1-2 after losing their latest game against the Lakers. Mile Bridges was great with 23 points while Cody Zeller racked up a double-double with 19 points and 14 assists.

The pair will be key for the Hornets if they want to get the better of the star-studded Clippers.

Four of Charlotte’s starters scored doubledigit points against the Lakers, and they need to put up similar numbers if they want to beat the other LA side.
