The Los Angeles Clippers have an All-Star duo leading the way, but their depth will be equally important, as role players will be the difference between wins and losses in the playoffs.
Players such as Eric Bledsoe and Jamal Crawford have played vital roles all season long. If the Clippers hope to advance out of the first round, that trend is going to have to continue, plus more. Teams will undoubtedly focus their defense on Chris Paul to keep him from breaking down the defense.
But will the Clippers’ role players be able to spread the floor, score one-on-one and defend? If they do, Los Angeles has the talent for a deep run. If not, it could be an early exit for one of the deepest teams in the NBA.
