It’s going to be a wild season in the Western Conference — there are more teams with serious playoff aspirations than playoff spots.
At the top there are sure-fire contenders in the Warriors and Clippers (if Kawhi Leonard stays healthy), followed by teams that could be contenders if things break right like the Nuggets and Suns, and finally just really good teams like the Mavericks and Grizzlies. With the depth of this conference will be little margin for error.
Mark Medina of NBA.com joins Kurt Helin of NBC Sports to talk all things Western Conference, including if the Clippers are real and if the Lakers could be. How much will Luka Doncic miss Jalen Brunson in Dallas? Did the Suns miss their window? Why we all should be watching the Pelicans, and much more.
