The Lakers and Clippers will be squaring off at Staples Center on Christmas.

The “Hallway series” is part of a tentative Christmas Day schedule that includes a Finals rematch of Cavs vs Warriors in addition to Heat vs Pelicans.

From the L.A. Times:

The Lakers will apparently be home for Christmas. So will the Clippers.

 

The teams are tentatively scheduled to play each other Dec. 25 in a designated Lakers home game at Staples Center, The Times has learned.

 

The Lakers and Clippers met on Christmas one other time, in 1991, with the Lakers winning, 85-75. The NBA will finalize the league’s entire schedule next week.
