The LA Clippers got back in the win column to start off the second half of the NBA season on Thursday, but coming into the All-Star break, they were on a three-game losing streak and that has fueled a lack of belief among fans nationally, according to the latest SB Nation Reacts survey.
The Brooklyn Nets? Favored to win the title?! They are the LA Clippers east historically! To be fair, the East remains largely awful which helps their cause.
Ok, so beyond the 8% belief among national voters for the Clippers’ title hopes, how are Clippers fans feeling? No surprise, amid the recent skid the belief has plummeted lately.
So will the downward trend rebound? We know what the Clips need to do to get the belief back: Win most of the games again heading into the playoffs. And then win in the playoffs. That’s it. We’ll see how it goes.
