Clippers.com will have correspondents in Orlando covering the Clippers and Summer League, and Clipper fans will be able to access box scores, game recaps, cumulative statistics and behind-the-scenes coverage and more by visiting www.clippers.com and following the official Clippers social channels.
Each team will play five games over the seven-day event, with the final standings decided by a Championship Day on the final day of the league. A point system will establish the standings leading up to the final day, with eight points awarded each game based on: four points for winning the game and one point for winning a quarter (in the event of a tied quarter, each team will receive 0.5 points). In the event of ties in seeding heading into championship day, three tiebreakers will be in place: 1) total point differential; 2) total points allowed; 3) coin flip.
Due to space limitations, the event is not open to the public and will be open only to the media and professional team/league personnel.
