Los Angeles are being led by Dennis Schroder and Montrezl Harrell on offense. The team defense has kept Los Angeles in games to win.
Adding Andre Drummond on the buyout market from Cleveland. He played one half before getting hurt, but he returned on Thursday night from a toe injury.
When healthy, they are favorites to win both Western conference and NBA Finals. To be the champ you got to beat the champ, that is what everyone has their eyes on in the regular season.

If you ask any reporter, everyone believes the Nets are thee favorites for the title. But that is why you play the games. With all the starts the Nets have, they should be favorites on paper.
Nets have all stars and former all stars in Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, James Harden, Blake Griffin and Lamarcus Aldridge.
The Nets have had injuries all year too, but they have always had at least one star in the lineup. They weren’t hurt at the same time, with all the injuries the Nets still control the Eastern conference.
With MVP contender James Harden out with a hamstring strain, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant will lead the way. But any team with two stars like. them would have success.
Steve Nash on Kevin Durant’s return, “It’s not hard to play basketball with Kevin Durant.”
