(LOS ANGELES) — With Kobe Bryant on the bench due to his hurt right wrist, the Los Angles Clippers swept the two-game preseason matchup with their Staples Center foe the Lakers. Game two saw the Clippers edge their same-city rivals 108-103 on Wednesday night.
From the bench, Kobe Bryant watched Clippers forward Blake Griffin drop in 30 points, that included a monster jam that was assisted by Chris Paul.
The one bright spot for the Lakers was center Andrew Bynum who had 26 points and 11 rebounds.
Both teams will begin the regular season on Christmas Day against their respective opponents.
