The Los Angeles Clippers have been without Kawhi Leonard all season, and have missed Paul George for a large portion of the season. There's no question that nobody would blame them if they were to start losing more games.

Despite the lack of a true star on the roster currently, the Clippers are a play-in tier team, hanging on to the 8th seed in the Western Conference with a 27-27 record. They have even gotten wins against teams like the Philadelphia 76ers and the Los Angeles Lakers.

Marcus Morris roasted the 76ers and the Lakers when asked about beating those teams without Kawhi Leonard and Paul George. Morris claimed that both those teams are "pretty average", and added that he doesn't envision them "being great teams".

Asked about beating Sixers with Embiid and Lakers with AD and Russ all while without Kawhi and PG, Marcus Morris said Clips work hard from coaches to players: "I mean shit, both of them teams is pretty average from what I have seen. Like I don’t see them just being great teams."

The Philadelphia 76ers are currently the 3rd seed in the Eastern Conference even without Ben Simmons, and it seems unfair to call them a mediocre team. On the other hand, the Los Angeles Lakers have had a disappointing season, especially considering they have 3 stars on the roster in LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and Russell Westbrook. The Lakers also currently have a worse record than the Clippers and are 9th in the Western Conference.

There is no doubt that the Clippers have had a productive season even without their stars. They have recently got reinforcements by trading for Norman Powell and Robert Covington, and there is a solid chance the team can make it to the playoffs even without Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.
