🏀Clippers: The Clippers are in a bit of a bind. With stars Kawhi Leonard and Paul George out on Tuesday due to health and safety protocols, the Clips had their seven-game winning streak snapped by the Atlanta Hawks. Unfortunately, both players will also be out for tomorrow’s 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT matchup against the similarly short-handed Miami Heat. Oof.

Sparks: We continue to be bad news bears. Like we said, Candace Parker is leaving the Sparks when free agency opens on February 1st (no, just no), but she’s not the only one. #PointGAWDDDDD Chelsea Gray might try her luck with the Las Vegas Aces. We refuse to accept this.

⚽️Soccer: While Parker’s time with the Sparks may be coming to an end, the soccer team she invested in is just getting started. The 2021 NWSL Expansion Draft is now set for December 16th for Angel City FC. The best holiday present!
