LOS ANGELES, Calif. (WIS) - The National Basketball Association has postponed Tuesday’s game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Clippers.

The decision comes just one day after the tragic death of Lakers legend Kobe Bryant, who died in a helicopter crash on Sunday with his 13-year-old daughter and seven others.

Both teams last played on Christmas Day with the Clippers coming away with a 111-106 win over the Lakers.

The Lakers return to action on Jan. 31 at home against Portland. The Clippers will host Sacramento at the Staples Center on Thursday.
