The Orange, powered by strong defense and timely offense, have now won its past two games and have much needed momentum going into the homestretch of the season.Here are the best shots from the game.
The Clippers could be on the move.And in the process, they could supplement the newest Los Angeles entertainment and sports hub and the future home of the Rams and Chargers.According to multiple sources, the Clippers and the city of Inglewood are closing in on entering an Exclusive Negotiating Agreement (ENA) on 22 acres of land owned by the city between Prairie and Yukon Avenues south of Century Boulevard.The Clippers would use the land to build a privately financed new arena. The Clippers have played at Staples Center since its opening in 1999, but they are the third tenant behind the Kings and Lakers when it comes to scheduling. A new arena would make them the masters of their own domain, and would allow them to reap all the perks of potential year-round use of the arena and whatever naming rights deal they can negotiate.It also would mean escaping the long shadow of the Lakers, at least in their own home arena.For all those reasons, the Clippers and owner Steve Ballmer have been looking for available land in Los Angeles to build their own palace and further establish their own identity.It also would mean Inglewood adding a third professional sports franchise to its growing lineup, with the Clippers joining the Rams and Chargers as neighbors.The two NFL teams are scheduled to move into the $2.6 billion stadium being built by Rams owner Stan Kroenke in 2020. The stadium will be the anchor of a 300-acre mixed-use development Kroenke is building, and is expected to host the Super Bowl in 2022.The new Clippers arena would be close to Kroenke’s development, but not part of it. Kroenke, though, will benefit as it means at least 41 nights of foot traffic at his nearby entertainment district. And that means plenty of customers at the multiple restaurants within the development.

Also as part of the agreement, the team would have to pay the city $1.5 million to cover the city’s costs associated with the ENA. The team also would have to provide renderings of the new arena to the city.Beyond that, an Environmental Impact Report is required and various other state and local requirements would need to be satisfied in an anticipated 24-month process. That means the arena, which is expected to seat as many as 20,000, could open for the 2022-23 season.The Clippers’ lease at Staples Center runs through 2024, although an early-release agreement could be reached between the Clippers and AEG, which owns the arena.
