3 Reasons why the Clippers won't make it to the NBA Playoffs this season
#2 They are in the Western Conference
In recent years, the Western Conference has been the harder side to compete on. There are the powerhouse teams like the Golden State Warriors or the Houston Rockets and many important players such as LeBron James, Steph Curry, Kevin Durant and other superstars.
However, the Clippers should be most concerned about the young teams that are just starting to spread their wings such as the Minnesota Timberwolves or the Denver Nuggets as they're the ones who can push the Clippers out of their playoff dream.
Most of these seeding teams either have well-rounded squads in terms of overall depth or just a high functioning line-up. Further, coming back to LeBron and the Lakers, they stand a chance as well in the run for the playoffs. In the overly competitive West, the Clippers tried to lay it safe with their roster and it probably won't pay off.
