Rivalries in the NBA seem to be created each and every year, but one that always sticks out is the in-city battle between the Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers. These two teams that share an arena will take on one another in an opening week marquee matchup on Thursday night.

Fresh off their 123-109 loss at the hands of the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday, LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers will look to get their season back on track with a victory. Recording a 31-point night against the Warriors, James is now just two 20-point games away from tying Karl Malone’s all-time record for the most 20-point games in NBA history.
