The Los Angeles Clippers play the Golden State Warriors in a playoff game tonight in Los Angeles. It’s the first home game for the Clippers since those racist comments, allegedly made by the team’s owner Donald Sterling, emerged.
Golden State coach Mark Jackson has said fans should boycott the game. Clippers coach Doc Rivers hopes the fans do show up tonight but if they don’t, he says, “who can say they’re wrong?”
NBA commissioner Adam Silver is expected to say what the league plans to do about Sterling at a news conference today at 2 p.m. Eastern time.
Kevin Arnovitz has been covering the story for ESPN.com and joins Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson with details.
