“TNT at 10:30 pm”

The Golden State Warriors will face the Los Angeles Clippers tonight at the Staples Center in game five of their Western Conference quarterfinal series, which is tied 2-2. Ordinarily, it would be a huge swing game: The team that wins game 5 usually wins the series, if it goes to six or seven games.

However, tonight’s game probably has more social significance than a mere sporting event. The Clippers will be playing at home for the first time since their bigoted owner expressed his true feelings about his African-American players, their coach, and all African-Americans.
