Clippers, Spurs Game Pushed to Monday?
Game 4 of the Western Conference playoff series between the Los Angeles Clippers and San Antonio Spurs, scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Sunday at Staples Center, would be moved to Monday if the hockey game between the Los Angeles Kings and Phoenix Coyotes, scheduled earlier in the day at the arena, goes multiple overtime periods and delays the start of the NBA game too much, an NBA spokesman told ESPNLosAngeles.com.
Staples Center is in the midst of a dizzying run of hosting six playoff games in four days. The final stage of the Amgen Tour of California is set to finish in front of the building Sunday morning, just 30 minutes before the start of the Kings game.
Organizers have warned fans to arrive as early as possible for the 12:30 p.m. hockey game, Game 4 of the Western Conference finals which the Kings lead 3-0, to avoid problems entering the arena. Many of the streets in and around downtown Los Angeles will be closed Sunday morning for the cycling event so fans are advised to take public transportation or park at the Coliseum where a free shuttle will take them to the arena.
