Lakers Not Ready to Relinquish LA Hold
Sorry, Clippers. It’s not your city yet.
The Lakers, if you can remember them, stumbled into a new season, dusted off their reputation and promptly clobbered the Clippers by the stunning score of 116-103, spoiling Doc Rivers’ debut as Clippers coach.
The surprises never ended while the injured Kobe Bryant watched in a black suit from behind the Lakers’ bench.
For one night, though, the Lakers beat the odds. They’re atop the Clippers in the standings.
