>By Will Robinson and Dylan Davis

Last night, two members of the esteemed TSL staff attended the last game EVER at ARCO Arena. Yes, it will still be there, but under the stupid name “Power Balance Pavilion.” GREAT. We attended a game earlier in the month, but our seats were not conducive for a game report. This time, however, we were approximately 20 feet away from the basket on the Kings’ side of the court. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Our SICK Tickets.

Two more notes from the game:

1. Beno had this SICK drive in the first quarter, and Dylan is visible in the replay!

2. Will was getting very upset with DeMarcus Cousins being DESTROYED from the free throw line, so when his Clipper counterpart, DeAndre Jordan, reached the line in the fourth quarter, he employed this strategy to try and make him miss. Of the five times he employed this strategy (once with Craig Smith), the Clippers missed ALL FIVE FREE THROWS! Magic? I think so. Look at the box score.

Thank you all for checking out our game report! The fans were fantastic last night, and chants occurred all night in support of keeping the Kings in town. While the Maloofs still have another month and a half to make a decision, it is still looking grim. Let’s all hope for the best.
