Series record (2011-12): 2-1, Lakers.

Update: The Lakers didn't play any defense in a loss to Portland and didn't deploy much offense in losing to Dallas. The Clippers, meanwhile, beat Memphis in front of a highly charged Staples Center crowd. Worth keeping in mind: The Lakers haven't lost a season series to the Clippers since 1992-93. In fact, it has happened only one other time in the 42-year history of the Clippers franchise, when they were the Buffalo Braves in 1974-75.
