After a comfortable 128-107 win over the Knicks on Sunday afternoon, Clippers center Ivica Zubac explained how his current team differs from the Lakers, and in his mind, most of it relates directly to effort.

Obviously, Patrick Beverley is taking a shot at the other team in Los Angeles, the Lakers, who are now 10th in the West despite having one of the best players in the league in LeBron James. The Los Angeles Clippers are averaging 113.9 points on 46.7 percent shooting and allowing 113.7 points on 45.5 percent shooting. The under is 13-4 in Clippers last 17 road games.

The Lakers sit 10th in the Western Conference standings and 4 1/2 games behind the San Antonio Spurs for the eighth seed with 19 games remaining. They hit rock bottom in their last game, losing to the Phoenix Suns who have the worst record in the National Basketball Association. The Lakers have lost back-to-back games entering Monday's showdown with the Clippers. They will need to play well in the final two months and avoid losses to teams like Phoenix if they want to end their playoff drought.

Last summer, they signed LeBron to a four-year deal, and everybody thought that this was the season for the Lakers to be contenders once again. Kyle Kuzma is averaging 18.9 points and 5.6 assists per game, while Brandon Ingram is averaging 18.3 points and 5.1 rebounds per game. The Los Angeles Clippers have split their last 10 road games.
