The Los Angeles Clippers beat the Los Angeles Lakers 104:86, and Ivica Zubac started the game in the first five games. The Croatian basketball player played 31 minutes and scored 6 points.
Zubak shot 3 of 5 from the game, pasted 2 blocks, and got 9 rebounds. The highest scoring player was Marcus Morris, who scored 22 points, Kawhi Leonard scored 19 points, and Paul George scored 16 points.
A sequence by Ivica Zubac from the second quarter is particularly interesting. Dennis Schröder launched one of the attacks and went straight to the Zippers, where he was welcomed by Zubac and stopped by a block.

He not only defended his basket, but also launched a counterattack. Since then, Morris has made 17 three-pointers in the second quarter.
The Lakers were absent for a while without Anthony Davis and LeBron James, and when the Clippers played with them, it was obvious on the court.
The lack of Davis and LeBron is also obvious. The Lakers’ top scorer is Montreux Harrell with 19 points. After this victory, the Clippers skipped the Lakers and ranked third in the Western Conference with a ratio of 32:18, while the Lakers ranked fourth with a ratio of 31:18.
