In a major breakthrough, Staples Center is going to get a new name from this Christmas. The arena has signed a contract with Crypto. Com and will be known as the Crypto.com arena.
The naming rights have fetched a whopping $700 million for a 20 years period. The arena can accommodate 20000 people since 1999. This deal is believed to be the most lucrative in sporting history in terms of naming rights.
Also a home of the LA Lakers, the name will reflect when the Lakers take on Brooklyn Nets in the Christmas period. However, the Clippers are building their own arena as owner Steve Balmer is scheduled to open his $1.2 billion, Intuit Dome, in Inglewood which will have 18000 seats.
Los Angeles are 5th in the Western Conference and improved performance against Pistons will boost their playoffs chances. They have defied the odds so far with exemplary display despite missing their star player Kawhi Leonard this season.
They were very close to turning the odds in the last match as the game went into overtime but Dallas held on and pulled the game away from them.
The Clippers will start their four game home journey and need to capitalise on this if they are to improve their 10-8 record. They have been very unlucky as Leonard is yet to play a single game this season.
They are one of the which has seen most of the missed games this season. Had there been fewer injuries they would have been on the upper side of the table as it stands.

Isaiah Stewart has had 7.1 assists and 1.2 blocks on average. Cade Cunningham has 4.9 assists while Killian Hayes has 1.6 steals on average.
