After a lot of analysis, Cavs Nation believes the Clippers have the best 5 starters going into the 2014-2015 season. Led by a tremendous head coach in Doc Rivers, the Clippers have developed a 3-headed monster in their starting lineup with facilitator Chris Paul, scoring virtuoso Blake Griffin, and defensive monster DeAndre Jordan. Add in the dead-eye shooter in J.J. Redick, who cracks defenses with his ability to move without the ball and find open looks and the overall basketball toughness of the experienced Matt Barnes, and the Clippers once again have a very solid starting lineup that’s looking to lead the way for the franchise’s first ever Western Conference appearance. It won’t be easy going through the San Antonio Spurs or the Oklahoma City Thunder, but Los Angeles has arguably the best point guard and power forward combination in the NBA next to Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love. What gives them the edge is there experience, consistent health and proven chemistry.
