The schedule for the first day of the NBA playoffs was released, and the Clippers will play in the second game of the day on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. PT. On Friday, Clips Nation will be hosting a fan forum on the Locker Room App to preview the game.
In case you haven’t been on the app yet, Locker Room is a place for live conversations with fans and writers alike. You can sit back and listen, contribute via the discussion tab, or hop up on the stage and talk with us. This is a great way to get instant feedback and have a two-way conversation about the Clippers.
We’ll be going on at 3 p.m. PT for about an hour to discuss the specific matchup between the Clippers and the Mavericks. We’ll also spend some time recapping the regular season as a whole, including standout games and moments, any surprises, and who has earned a spot in the playoff rotation. Feel to bring any other Clippers questions to the discussion.
You can join Locker Room by following the instructions below:
- Download the Locker Room app from the App Store
- Create an account if you don’t have one already
- Go to the home page and look for a room hosted by one of our writers. On Friday, that will be me, Sabreena Merchant, and our room will be titled: “Clippers vs. Mavericks preview”
We hope you can join Friday, but if not, we’ll have more Clips Nation forums throughout the playoffs. See you on Locker Room!
