The NBA returns Thursday night with a two-game slate capped by Lakers vs. Clippers, a marquee matchup between arguably the best teams in the Western Conference.
Rather than a Staples Center duel, though, the battle for LA supremacy is taking place near Orlando, where the NBA is holding the rest of its season during the COVID-19 pandemic.
While there will be some notable absences — the Clippers are without Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell — stars LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are expected to suit up.
Sporting News is tracking live scoring updates and highlights from Lakers vs. Clippers, the second game from the NBA’s restart bubble Thursday. Follow below for complete results.
