Lakers vs. Clippers live score, updates, highlights from NBA’s 2020-21 season opener

You didn’t even have to look at the NBA’s Opening Night schedule to know what the late game would be. There was no way the league would pass on the chance to have the Lakers and Clippers face off in Los Angeles.

LeBron James, Anthony Davis and the new-look Lakers begin their quest for back-to-back titles on Tuesday. After exiting the NBA “bubble” with the Larry O’Brien Trophy, the Lakers rebuilt their roster and signed both James and Davis to new deals, putting them in position to be a contender for years to come. They unsurprisingly enter the season as the championship favorites.

However, the Clippers remain a threat. The visual of the Clippers walking off the floor after blowing a 3-1 series lead against the Nuggets in the 2020 NBA playoffs may linger for many fans, but coach Tyronn Lue, who replaced Doc Rivers this past offseason, knows he has a talented group capable of making a deep postseason run.
