Welcome to the Game Thread. Veterans of the Game Thread know how we do things around here, but for all you newbies we have a few rules. Our community guidelines apply and basically say be cool, no personal attacks, don’t troll and don’t swear too much.

The final game to be played in the Staples Center is tonight, and it features the young and inconsistent Spurs against the old and inconsistent Lakers. The arena isn’t being torn down, it’s just going to be renamed as The Crypto Dot Com Center for a new sponsor, Crypto.com. Sports has always been a good way to lose money, and now there’s at least one more way to do it. But the Spurs have serious business tonight, to try to get of the pattern of alternating wins and losses that have pretty much dominated the month of December for them. A win tonight will make a bit of history for the Spurs as they can become the final team to win a game at Staples. Let’s brew up a pot of coffee and watch tonight’s late game, and Dejounte must dominate Russell.

Game Prediction:

This game will end before midnight, Central Standard Time.

Closing time at Staples
Start firing up the Crypto
It’s time to clear the tables
And leave the Lakers with zippo

One final word:

Go Spurs GOOOOOO!!
