VIDEO: Clippers Hang Red And White Balloons On Lakers Statues

The Los Angeles Clippers will play host to the Golden State Warriors in Game 2 of their first-round playoff series on Monday night.

According to Mark Medina’s Tout account, the Clippers have tied red and blue balloons to every single Lakers statue outside of Staples Center. Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Jerry West and Chick Hearn’s statues are all decorated with Clipper balloons.

While the Clippers had the better season, all-star point guard Chris Paul acknowledged that Los Angeles is still a Lakers town.
