Lakers and Nets prepare for friendly in China

Excited Chinese basketball fans waved national flags in a Shanghai arena ahead of an NBA game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Brooklyn Nets amid a huge backlash against a tweet backing anti-China protests in Hong Kong. But there was no sign of angry protest, with the packed stands giving the players a huge welcome on court and cheering enthusiastically throughout.

The Nets won 114-111. The now-deleted tweet by Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey supporting anti-government protests in Chinese-ruled Hong Kong has sparked a furore in China,with a fan event cancelled and Chinese partners cutting ties with the National Basketball Association.
