Clippers break three-game losing runSeason form
The Clippers broke a three-game losing streak by beating the Los Angeles Lakers 119-115 in their previous game at the Staples Center. The Clippers have now moved over 0.500, up to 12-11 for the season.
“The Lakers, if you let them be themselves comfortably, it’s going to be a long, tough game,” George said. “We stuck to our game plan, but we just had to match up and compete. They’re going to be themselves, but our job is to make it as tough as possible.”
As reported by AP: Nicolas Batum missed his seventh straight game in the health and safety protocols. Serge Ibaka hit three 3-pointers and didn't make another shot in 29 minutes of play.
A great start to the weekend!

Kings win three in fiveSeason form
The Kings have now picked up some momentum by winning three of their last five games to move to 9-14 for the season. In their previous game, the Kings beat the Clippers 124-115
De'Aaron Fox led the scoring with 24 points, Richaun Holmes added 11 rebounds as the Kings started quickly and didn't let up ever since. They scored 25 points or more in each of the four quarters.
The Kings have found decent offensive form, putting up 110 points per game but they really need to create tougher opportunities on the other end because they are simply conceding too many points.
