The return of the NBA on Tuesday night meant the return of another hallowed institution, the NBA on TNT.

Sartorial savant Craig Sager was in mid-season form during the Lakers-Clippers broadcast, going with a lavender and white suit over a lavender shirt and gold tie.

Those of course, are Lakers colors.

Obviously, it was Sager's choice of sportcoat colors that spurred the Lakers bench to an upset victory.

Sager kept busy during the NBA off-season, reporting for TBS during their MLB playoff coverage, but it's good to have him back on an NBA court. We were getting tired of trying to fill the void.

Welcome back, Craig. We missed you. Apparently the Lakers bench did too.
