Up next: Lakers vs. Clippers on Tuesday

The Lakers' Kobe Bryant will sit out the season opener, which will be the Clippers' debut for Coach Doc Rivers.

October 29, 2013


When: 7:30.

Where: Staples Center.

On the air: TV: TNT; Radio: 710, 980, 1330.

Records (2012-13): 4-0, Clippers.

Update: Three of the Clippers' four victories over the Lakers were by double digits last season. The Clippers swept them for the first time since 1974-75 and have never done it two seasons in a row. Kobe Bryant will not play because of a torn Achilles' tendon, missing his first season opener since 2006. Clippers reserve guard Darren Collison has a bruised kneecap but is expected to play.
