LOS ANGELES — Donald and Shelly Sterling, the long-separated married couple whose peaceful partnership atop the Los Angeles Clippers is described by one person close to them as “a strange estrangement,” will face off as official foes for the first time today when their lawyers appear in court with the team they share and a $2 billion deal hanging on the outcome.

An attorney will ask a probate court judge in Los Angeles to confirm Shelly Sterling’s authority to sell the Clippers against the will of her husband, according to a person familiar with the matter not authorized to speak publicly and speaking on the condition of anonymity.
