Any word on allowed attendance at Staples for the game? Restrictions getting adjusted?

Looking like many arenas are getting close to max again. Mavs stating they will be at 16k for their next game. Compared to last night the clips game had a reported 6880. Just a little over a third of capacity.

Laker fans can rejoice with a playoff game and make some noise but it will not be the loud raucous event without the extra 10k of fans.

I don’t think it will be much different than the clippers attendance number. I think if the lakers keep going, they will get back more and more fans after June 15th

It may work out in our favor if CP3 is unable to go next few days...but I am not understanding how the Clippers/Mavs series has like three 2 day breaks while the Lakers get one 2 day break between games 3 and 4.

Ratings. Lakers are on the prime time Tuesday Thursday Sunday schedule and the Clippers are playing the off schedule games.

Just make sure to disinfect the place from the Clippers stench in stinking up the joint...mass sanitization. Hell, sage it too.

So does Ben Mac get some run tomorrow? Last night's game would not have been close if KCP had hit anything. Seems like his D is the only thing that keeps him on the floor, but if he can't hit anything I have to think that Ben or Wes could make more of a contribution.

Today, my thought is the Lakers will likely face a bit more of what the Suns did from around mid-3rd quarter on to get back in the game - speeding up their offense, and trying to attack the Lakers by getting up on them on defense.

Lakers can still counter that if they execute, but we may see a tad more of AD at 5 if the "playing big" isnt as successful.

Although, to simplify, I think if the Lakers just play aggressive on both ends (e.g. AD attacking), and Lakers shoot - just semi-decent (e.g. 33%, which is a tad below their season average) - 3s, they will win Thursday's game.

Would also love to see them really bottle up Booker, if possible; and keep Ayton from having so many bloated stats - he's having Dwight Powell type games against the team, where via rolling, or lobs, or just hanging around the hoop he is getting wide open shots.
