Nick Young is giving Byron Scott reasons to be happy w/ him
Nick Young drained a tough, contested, step-back 3 to make it 105-99 with 2:09 to play. He’s up to 10 points in 15 minutes.
Nick Young, #TheReturn. I hope.
Where's Robert Upshaw? Asking for a friend.
Roy Hibbert’s 8 of 10 at the FT line, but that shouldn’t surprise you. He shot 82.4% at the line last year.
J.T. Orr and Matt Boland have been bad tonight, IMO.
Once again, it's only been two preseason games, but Roy Hibbert has been a pleasant surprise so far.
This. Burks truly has gotten better and better each year. twitter.com/EricPincus/sta…
LAL have a 100-96 edge with 3:17 to play. Hibbert's up to 16 points with 11 rebounds and some strong defense.
Crowd legitimately loud here in Honolulu for the close of this game. Thanks, Hawaii. Been real. #AlohaJazz
Alec Burks very strong tonight for Jazz - sneaky good player
Tako is Hawaiian for taco. twitter.com/tribjazz/statu…
Player of the game for Lakers is Hibbert - double/double sure, but really for standing up for teammate Randle in Booker tiff
Lakers reach 100 points first and a few fans in the Honolulu crowd start to chant, "We want tako."
With 3:17 remaining left in the game, Lakers still lead 100-96 in Hawaii.
I heard the first "We want tacos" chant tonight. Didn't know that promotion extended to the island
Preseason or Hibbert? vine.co/v/e2EvKlzvE3a
Roy Hibbert, #DoubleDouble.
... and I'm hungry now. http://t.co/bKUMxbb0Q5
Hoiberg on Butler: "Even on our two-a-days, he’d still come in a 3rd time. It’s unbelievable how much energy he has; he’s just so dedicated"
Jeff Withey is a Utah hero! He just rejected Roy Hibbert.
So, Nick Young is on a 4-0 run.
Hoiberg on Butler: "Jimmy, he wants to assume that role, like Kevin Garnett, Michael Jordan, pulling everyone with him with leadership."
McDermott on Hoiberg: "It’s one of those deals where he’s not going to pull you out if you have a bad shot; he lets you play your game."
Hibbert looks a bit gassed at this point
Nick Young takes and makes a long-two and Byron Scott nods in approval. Lakers lead 96-95 with 4:15 left.
Hoiberg on Butler: "He does things you just can’t teach, those fadeaways, shooting one leg runners; he’s got so many things in his arsenal."
Rodney Hood touched the ball last, but it's still preseason for refs, too.
Hoiberg on Portis: You go out there that first time you’re usually a little intimidated, a little scared. There was none of that with Bobby"
