With a 116-112 come-from-behind victory, the Los Angeles Lakers topped the Los Angeles Clippers in the two teams' final matchup at their shared Crypto.com Arena.

After coming back from a 21-point fourth quarter deficit to earn the win, the Lakers have secured the season series against the Clippers for the first time in 10 years, according to StatMuse:

“Last time the Lakers beat the Clippers in a season series: — Blake Griffin led the Clippers in scoring — Kobe Bryant led the Lakers in scoring Tonight, the Lakers snapped a decade long streak.”

LeBron James scored 19 of his 34 points during that brilliant fourth quarter.

Kawhi Leonard missed ashort jumper with five seconds to play, and James threw a long pass to Cam Reddish for a dunk that put the finishing touches on a stunning victory for the Lakers in these Los Angeles rivals’ final regular-season game as co-tenants at ‘The Crypt.'

Naturally, Lakers fans are reacting.


Sam was harsh, but feels strongly about the win – “@LAClippers Yall are the most embarrassing team this year. Up 21 and you can’t close. This was a bigger choke job then anything Doc did while coach. Embarrassing #longlivekingjanes #lakers>clippers. Hurry up and move out your stinking up the arena. @Lakers are number 1″

ALB Graphics shared his thoughts – “The Clippers played like they want to finish 4 or 5th. They will play Dallas, the Suns or Sacramento. They are not getting thecyopb3 seeds. Losing like they did tonight they are not deserving. They are not better than the top 3 teams, and the Lakers deserved to win.”

Dalton had to rub it in – “oh but i thought the clippers were “levels above” the lakers like you said at half time”

Up next, the Lakers take on the Washington Wizards on Thursday night.
