The AP is reporting that "police engaged in a roughly 20-minute standoff Saturday with a knife-wielding man on the floor of Los Angeles' Staples Center, where the Los Angeles Clippers and Cleveland Cavaliers were set to play later in the day.

"Police tackled and apprehended the man after the faceoff on the court near the visitors' bench area. Some spectators for the 12:30 p.m. PT game had begun filing into the arena, but were evacuated once the standoff started. The players were confined to their locker rooms."
