[Basket US] As part of the NBA Sundays, the Philadelphia 76ers travel to California to face the Los Angeles Clippers this Sunday, March 1. The match will be broadcast live from Staples Center on BeIn Sport 3 at 9:30 p.m.!
Before this 2019-20 season, Clippers and Bucks were among the favorites for the Larry O’Brien Trophy, as were the Lakers of Lebron and Davis or the Bucks of Antetokounmpo. On the one hand, the flashy recruitment of Californians with the arrival of Paul George from OKC and of course the NBA champion Kawhi Leonard just crowned the supreme title with the Raptors. On the other hand, Philadelphia and its “process” which allowed it to draft Ben Simmons, Joël Embiid and then add confirmed players like Al Horford or Tobias Harris.
Where are these teams today, entering the final quarter of the regular season? A bit far from the expectations of the start of the seasons, it must be said. The Clippers have benefited very little from their star duo, PG having chained the injuries, and are only in 3rd place in the West in the fight with the Nuggets and Rockets for the place of dolphin of the Lakers who already have 6 more victories. Phillie for his part disappoints even more because they were expected as the main opponent of the Bucks for 1st place in the East. However, Brett Brown’s players are in an unexpected fifth place, far from the leading trio of Toronto, Boston and the Bucks (who have 13 (!) More successes).
