Lakers-Clippers: LeBron’s Putback Clinic in Orlando battled all out for LA


LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – Pipe in virtual fan and crowd noise. A head-to-head between two pre-final MVPs is played to smuggle real faces. A battle for Los Angeles, about 3,000 miles from the Staples Center.

Lakers 103, Clippers 101.

The NBA is back.

The end of the NBA’s season of resumption night finally took place on Thursday, and what a strange experience. A late-season Lakers-Clippers game would be near an unlikely ticket in Los Angeles. Fans will pack LAE live hours before tipoff. Scalpers would have a field day. In the bubble, witnesses to this marquee matchup were a dozen or so media members, a few more NBA employees and a handful of players who were eager to watch from socially distant seats.
