The Los Angeles Lakers utilized their home-court advantage to secure a playoff spot with their Play-In Tournament win over the Golden State Warriors.
It is safe to say that having fans back at Staples Center has provided a much-needed boost that was sorely missed during their title run last season. The Lakers have since ushered in some sense of normalcy with a limited capacity in the stands.
The Purple and Gold are now doing what they can to help build on the efforts that have been made over the past year. This has resulted in even more incentive for fans to do what they can to get vaccinated.
LA Public Health announced that those receiving vaccinations at their select sites will have a chance to win a pair of season tickets for the 2021-22 season:
