Before the national anthem, longtime Lakers public address announcer Lawrence Tanter asked fans at Crypto.com Arena for the moment of silence while a logo of Monterey Park was shown on the big screen. Five men and six women, between the ages of 57 and 76, were murdered at a dance studio during the Lunar New Year celebration last Saturday in Monterey Park, which is about 10 miles outside downtown Los Angeles. The Clippers placed t-shirts with the message "Stop The Violence" at each player's locker before the game.
