Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

For the first time ever, a team from Los Angeles not decked in purple and gold could be the last team standing at the end of the NBA season.

While the underachieving Lakers spent the first half of the season quibbling, their intercity rival Clippers were busy winning.

Currently, the Clippers record stands at 33-13. That mark is good enough for third place in the Western Conference, just two games behind the San Antonio Spurs.

Going into the season, Clippers fans had reasons to be excited. They had Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan. Their team had just won its first playoff series in six years.

But few expected their current level of success. After a prodigious 17-game winning streak which spanned the entire month of December, the unheralded Los Angeles team gained national praise.
