It’s a full on Los Angeles battle in the NBA this Christmas! The Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles are going head-to-head for the holiday game, and HollywoodLife.com has the live stream for you right here!
Football may take precedent on Thanksgiving, but Christmas is all about the basketball! After a day full of big games, the Clippers and Lakers will finish things off with a 10:30 ET tip-off, and you can watch the game LIVE here!
The Lakers will really need a Christmas miracle for this one. It’s been a really rough season start for Kobe Bryant’s team, and they’re currently holding a rough 5-24 record, compared to the Clippers’ much more even 16-13. This will be the first time the teams meet this season. (CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE LIVE STREAM).
With the game taking place in L.A., there’s sure to be some celeb sightings…even though it is a holiday. But at HollywoodLife.com, we’re keeping our eyes peeled for one very specific duo who we’ve heard might show up together — Chris Brown and Rihanna!
“Chris misses chopping it up with Rihanna at the games like they’ve done so many times in the past,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Kobe is one of Chris’s idols. Chris’ Christmas would be complete if Rihanna accepted [his] offer [to go to the game]. Watching her smile and eat popcorn out of the palm of his hands while watching Kobe play in his last season would be a dream come true.” We haven’t heard whether or not RiRi agreed, so we’ll be on the lookout!
As for Kobe, he announced in November that this will be his final season with the NBA — yup, he’s chosen to retire after 20 years and five championships. It’s completely understandable, especially after all the injuries he’s suffered recently, but there’s no doubt the league just will not be the same without him!
