The Clippers are playing their last season as a Los Angeles team as they will be moving to a new city and a new arena that is currently been built. Meanwhile, they continue to host their games at the Arena.

With that in mind, and having tonight's game as probably their last one, unless the two teams face each other at the playoffs, will be the last time for the Lakers as a road team in their own "home."

D'Angelo Russell detailed how weird it is being the road team when they face off despite being in their familiar home. “Yeah. It’s weird, that’s the word,” Russell said. “I’ll elaborate I guess but yeah, it’s just weird showing up and having to do that. I’ve done it my rookie year and then I come back and we’re still doing that so it is what it is.

You adjust because you know that’s what the norm is and you adapt to it. There’s change on the way, I think that’s good for Lakers and Clippers players. And it’s good for the fans. So I’m a fan of that.”

Russell spoke on what is the weirdest thing for him playing as a road team vs. Clippers

“Strangest part about that, I mean, you go home and your place is redecorated,” D'Lo said. “It just looks different. I think walking out through the tunnel is probably the weirdest thing. We got to go all the way around. It is what it is.”
