Zach LaVine misses a long 3 - review, again - to see who has the ball- call was Lakers on floor
Lakers can't guard the Bruins. Zach LaVine had 28 points a couple weeks ago and Shabazz Muhammad already has 26 points.
Zach LaVine went off at LAL for 28, and while he has just 8 tonight, it's been Muhammad approaching that number. Has 26 w/10 min. left.
Robert Sacre clearly fouled Zach LaVine on that play, but Carlos Boozer told the ref that he fouled him. What a good father.
Trailing Michael by one point, Kobe powers through Zach LaVine, draws the foul and makes two free throws. ... LAL 38, MIN 32.
Kobe might pass Jordan at the free-throw line. Zach LaVine fouled him on a drive. He'll shoot two after timeout with 5:24 left in 2nd.
Vet Ronnie Price is giving rookie Zach LaVine problems early, already forcing 2 TO's that resulted in LAL hoops. Lakers up 5-2 early.
Lavine starts after halftime by missing FT from a Westbrook `T' that end first half. That keeps it at OKC 70, Wolves 49
Westbrook picks up a tech right before halftime. Clear missed call on LaVine taking a hard hack on Westbrook's hand. Good reason to be mad.
Cool all-UCLA point guard matchup tonight: the polished and explosive Russell Westbrook vs the explosive but extremely raw Zach LaVine.
Scott Brooks told of the Zach LaVine comparison to Russell Westbrook: "I used to have to defend him. Now everyone wants to be Russell.”
Kevin Durant complimentary of both Andrew Wiggins and Zach LaVine. Told they're both 19, Durant said "s***, I'm getting old"

LOBESOTA (AP) _ Thad Young after a little razzle-dazzle from LaVine.
LaVine had Freeland on a switch. Waited and waited, dumped it to Robbie in post, turnover.
3. Oftentimes I think Zach LaVine looks like the prototypical 76er. Full of talent and mistakes with significant upside.
Aside from the misses, a nice floor game so far for LaVine. Looking more comfortable.
LaVine just tried to hammer it Westbrook-style and slammed it off the back iron
GSW at MIN starters: GSW - Curry, Thompson, Barnes, Green, Bogut; MIN - Lavine, Brewer, Wiggins, Young, Dieng. Out: Lee;Martin/Pekovic/Rubio
Jason Terry had season-high 19p, assist on Johnson's game-winner. When he was an NBA rookie, Wolves rooks Wiggins, LaVine were 4-years-old.
If this game was going to come down to a rookie, who'd have bet on Nick Johnson and not Wiggins or LaVine? Or even Black or Papanikolaou?
Well, I guess that's better than a LaVine iso....
Two silly fouls from Zach LaVine to start the third and now he has 4 fouls.
