KOBE BRYANT: NBA Postpones Lakers-Clippers Game

Written by on January 28, 2020

The Lakers game scheduled for Tuesday, the team’s first following the death of Kobe Bryant, was postponed by the NBA on Monday afternoon.

The team was supposed to play the Clippers at Staples Center, the arena that serves as home court for both franchises.

The NBA said in a statement, “The decision was made out of respect for the Lakers organization, which is deeply grieving the tragic loss of Lakers legend Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna and seven other people in a helicopter crash on Sunday.”

No makeup date has been set.

The Lakers next scheduled home game is Friday at Staples against the Portland Trail Blazers. (Los Angeles Times)
