When the Los Angeles Lakers take on the New York Knicks for a matinee tip-off on Jan. 21, fans in attendance at Staples Center will receive a free Lakers car flag. The game is slated for 12:30 p.m., so fans should make sure to get there early to take advantage of the promotion.
The Lakers have scheduled several exciting giveaways for the 2017-18 season, designed to give back to the team’s loyal fan base. In addition, fans will have the opportunity to receive a traveling neck pillow and Lakers bucket hat in future promotions.

Following the promotion, two of the largest fan bases will have the chance to grab bragging rights. The Knicks will also bring promising young big man Kristaps Porzingis, who is slated to play in the All-Star Game next month at Staples Center.
Porzingis, at 7-foot-3, will provide a challenge for the Lakers bigs, meaning head coach Luke Walton might employ more traditional lineups. By forgoing small ball, Brook Lopez should see extended time, and Kyle Kuzma and Julius Randle will play a significant role, as well.
