At least they were last night. In front of 18,997 at the Staples Center, the Clippers showed their potential right off the bat. That’s right — a sold out preseason game. This goes to show that this wasn’t the run of the mill exhibition game. The Lakers season ticket holders weren’t just giving these tickets away to friends and family. That’s what you usually do with exhibition hoops tickets. Not last night — the newly relevant Clippers were coming to town. It was as must see as any preseason game can be.
If you weren’t in Hollywood, you could have also caught the game on NBA TV. If you did, you would have seen this:
Boy, the Clips are going to be fun to watch. Mark it down; January 14th, Lakers @ Clippers. The tagline should be, “This time it matters.”
