Gotta give the Clippers some credit for being aggressive in getting to the line in the 4th whether LAL liked the calls or not.

#LOTN (runner-up): @Blake Griffin 39 pts, 7 rebs, 4 asts, 13-23 FG, 2-2 3FG, 11-12 FT, W

Mike Trudell

Here’s the Running Diary from an entertaining L.A. basketball matchup the Clips came back to win at the foul line: on.nba.com/10ccCYz

Mark Heisler

When #Lakers were good, they were often nip-and-tuck w/lesser teams for 3Q but knew they'd take over in 4Q and did--like #Clippers tonight.

Ralph Lawler

Clippers come from behind in 4th Q to beat Lakers 118-111 behind 39-Pts from Blake Griffin and 14 in 4th for Jamal Crawford. Clips 2-0.

Janis Carr

Clippers defeat Lakers, 118-111, but Lakers and their fans should be encouraged

Gary Lee

Thanks for tuning in tonight, #LakersNation! Follow me on my personal account, @DanDuangdao and Jeremy Lin was fouled by DeAndre Jordan.

Dan Woike

Griffin has 39 as Clippers comeback to win 118-111. Jamal Crawford with 22 off the bench.

Mike Trudell

That sequence to end the 3rd Q didn't help the Lakers: offensive foul on Sacre w/8 sec. left, Crawford buzzer-beating 3, lead from 8 to 5.

Mark Heisler

Oh, #Clippers made 18 more FTs than #Lakers? Well maybe Lakes should get someone like that Blake Griffin guy

Mike Trudell

Clippers come back for a 118-111 win, scoring the final 6 points of the game at the FT line. Kobe had 21 and 7, Lin 17 and 9, Hill 23 and 5.

Kevin Ding

Standing behind Clippers' bench, Steve Ballmer was swaying back and forth nervously on his feet...but then Kobe missed that three.

Mike Trudell

Kobe pulled up for a 3 … and missed wide. Redick hit LAC's 15th and 16th LAC FT's of the 4th Q to make it 116-111 with 15.1 seconds left.

Gary Lee

Good look for Kobe there, but he couldn’t tie the game.

Dan Woike

Kobe gets a clean look to tie and misses it - Redick scraps for the rebound and gets fouled with a chance to put LAC up 5.

Arash Markazi

What? You thought he was passing it to Lin or Boozer?

Bill Oram

This place would have exploded.

Mark Medina

Boozer hands off to Kobe for 3 at top of the key. Hits back iron

Mark Heisler

#Kobe's legs will be stronger but right now they're not there.... On the other hand, he's still Kobe so anything's possible

Ben Standig

I'm certainly not a member of the Blake Griffin fan club, but there's no denying he's improved tons over last season plus+. Evolved.

Rick Bonnell

I so respect Kobe Bryant's passion. But on this team, it won't make much difference.

Arash Markazi

What are the odds someone other than Kobe is taking this shot? youtube.com/watch?v=2V3CfD…

These are not the Lakers I saw merely two days ago

Wow … what an athletic save from Griffin. Clips keep the ball after a miss, but Hill swats Paul.

Dan Woike

What a play to save that ball. Such quick reflexes.

Tim Bontemps

Happy to hear my guy @RyanRuocco getting the call on this Clippers-Lakers national TV game.

Chris Palmer

Lakers/Clippers. What a game.

The refs making some questionable calls all night long. 3 Lakers with five or more. Wesley Johnson fouled out with his 6th.

Tony Jones

Blake Griffin is one of the best hedging big men in the game. Don't run a pick and roll with his guy

Mike Trudell

Yet another touch foul here, as Jamal Crawford kicks the legs on a 3 and drew Wesley Johnson's 6th foul. Wayne Ellington checks in.

Kristina Leahy

The net doesn't even move when Jamal Crawford shoots a free throw

Ramona Shelburne

That shot was huge for Jeremy Lin. Not because he made it. Because he shook off the entry pass to Kobe, who had posted vs CP

Paul Garcia

Wesley Johnson didn't even want to make eye contact with Kobe after fouling Crawford on that three.

Dan Woike

Wes Johnson just fouled out, hitting Crawford on a 3 attempt. Chance for Clippers to tie w/ 4:22 left

Mike Trudell

Kobe and Lin disagreed about how to run a play … yet Lin rose for a fading, contested 3 to put LAL up 106-103.

Jordan Hill making jump shots is the West Coast version of MKG making jump shots.

Dan Woike

Jordan Hill is Perry Jonesing the Clippers.

Did Mike Rice really just say, "It really helps to foul 'em in the eye."

Mark Medina

This Lakers-Clippers game reminds of the season opener last year

Sam Smith

Rose on Saturday: "Go to Minnesota, try and give it a go. If not, still have [79 games]. I guess the gods are testing me."

Sam Amico

After rough opener, LeBron dominant again as Cavs best Bulls. foxsports.com/ohio/story/leb…

Ryan Ward

As usual, Kobe Bryant leads Lakers in scoring w/ 17 points. Efficient tonight. 5-for-8 from the field. Add 6 assists & 2 steals to his stats

Mike Trudell

All LAC have had going has been Blake Griffin, and he's dominated on offense, reaching 31 points … but LAL keep scoring. Still up 7.

Jeff Zillgitt

Lot to pack into Cavs' 114-108 OT win vs. Bulls, but if this is a prelude to a playoff series, we're in for a treat: usat.ly/1pd16bN

Alan Hahn

Jordan Hill turned into a productive NBA player, but that draft still haunts Knicks. So close to Curry, left a lot of talent on the board.

Dan McCarney

Spurs miss their last six shots, score two points over the final 5 minutes. Basically the exact opposite of what we saw in the Finals.

Mike Prada

And seriously: what was Sacramento thinking letting Isaiah Thomas go?

Darnell Mayberry

Thunder GM Sam Presti's statement on Reggie Jackson's contract situation http://t.co/wpMbEIIw3X

Bill Oram

Blake Griffin with 31 points now, and 12-plus minutes still to play.

Paul Garcia

Parker led Spurs with 19 points, Duncan 16 points, and Diaw 13 points. 4 of the Spurs' 13 turnovers came in the fourth, gave PHX 8 points.

Mike Prada

Watching the Suns is like going on a rollercoaster. Watching the Suns while skipping commercials and stoppages? It wears you out.

Gary Lee

I think Jordan Hill went back to drinking because he’s starting to play like he did last season.

Joe Freeman

Heading into tonight's game, the #Blazers were 2-6 in games played in Sacramento since the start of 2011-12 season.

Bill Herenda

3 Worst things in life: 1. Allowing offensive rebounds, 2. ATM fees & 3. Running out of pretzels #SacKings #KingsTalk #NBA Kings

Amin Elhassan

Going to try to catch end of that after Pop RT @JaeAzizi: We all know The Lakers are gonna lose this, right? (Cc @Amin Elhassan ) #hhapproved ?

Paul Garcia

Spurs fall to Suns 94-89. SA now 1-1 on the season. PHX defense held Spurs to 18 points in 4th. Six Suns in double-figures scoring.

Joe Freeman

Looks like call with stand. Kings ball.

Jon Krawczynski

He got a lot of $$, but it's clear Rubio loves this young team and thinks Wolves are going to be better sooner than most believe

Royce Young

Down go the champs, Suns knock off the Spurs 94-89.

Jeff Wade

Damn, Spurs just got screwed on that 5 count...Pisser for them yo, but it's a big fat L...happens

Paul Coro

FINAL: #Suns 94, Spurs 89. Thomas: 23 pts, 10-17 FG; Markieff M: 20 pts, 11 reb; Bledsoe: 12 pts, 9 reb; Len: 10 pts, 11 reb. #SunsVsSpurs

Quixem Ramirez

I guess we’ll settle for 81-1.

Joe Freeman

47.7 secs left. Officials will review call that ball went out of bounds off of #Blazers. Kings lead 95-89.

Dan McCarney

Suns hit both FTs and that's game over. Suns rally down the stretch for a 94-89 victory.

Quixem Ramirez

Final: Suns 94, Spurs 89. Parker with 19 points, 6 assists. Duncan had 16 points, 9 rebounds.

Amin Elhassan

Big time win for the Suns. Great confidence builder. Spurs go home and don't play again until 11/5. Cant wait to livetweet Pop's postgame

Robert Morales

Clippers not playing well, and Lakers are #LakersVsClippers

Sam Smith

Rose said relax with ankle sprain:"I had X-rays, not an MRI. It's not that serious. I’m walking around so everyone can breathe. Trust me."

Mike Trudell

After 4 straight points from Sacre, Jordan Hill reached 12 points in the period to put the Lakers back up 7, matching their biggest margin.

Gary Lee

We’ve missed you, too. RT @chrissyteigen: I'm bored. I missed you guys. Question time!

Paul Coro

Diaw turned to McCutheon for a time out on the inbound. He gave him a 5-second inbound violation. Bledsoe FTs make it 94-89. #SunsVsSpurs

Dan McCarney

Not the masterful set play execution we're used to seeing.

Paul Garcia

Diaw couldn't get the timeout, Phoenix ball. Good defense by Phoenix.

Amin Elhassan

Spurs tried to get the timeout but McCutchen didn't hear him....credit the crowd noise

Bill Herenda

Offensive rebound & Matthews put back cuts Kings lead to 95-89 with 1:11 to go.

Quixem Ramirez

Five second violation. Turnover. Spurs not gonna Spurs.

Dan McCarney

Body blow. Five second count...

Kevin Pelton

Given the Spurs' shooters, if they put it on the ground I'm fouling.

Royce Young

Sam Presti on the Reggie Jackson negotiations: http://t.co/hiHPBLNU1E

Gary Lee

Robert Sacre actually dunked. He’s made so much progress since last season. This is what developing young players is all about.

Quixem Ramirez

6.5 seconds left. Spurs down 92-89. Pop drawing up a play.

Jason Jones

Kings up 95-89, 1:11 to play.

KC Johnson

Know they're minor (so far) but Butler's sprained thumb, Rose's sprained ankle and Gibson's rolled ankle just same old injury song for Bulls

Jon Krawczynski

Rubio to AP on his big contract: "You're getting paid more, you have to earn it. you have to show why you're getting paid this money."

Paul Garcia

6.5 seconds left in the fourth, Suns lead Spurs 92-89. Pop calls time, let's see how SA executes out of this timeout.

Ray Richardson

Robert Morales

Lakers giving Clippers all they want, lead 81-78 with 2:57 left in 3rd. Griffin has 29 for Clippers, Kobe 17 for Lakers #LakersVsClippers

Paul Coro

The #Suns lead 92-89. Spurs ball, :06.5 to go. Time out, Pop. #SunsVsSpurs

Ryan Ward

Jeremy Lin is having a solid game tonight. Floating under the radar with Kobe stealing the show. Lin: 14 points and 7 assists

Quixem Ramirez

Haters gonna hate. RT @Matt Moore: Don't eer talk about floppers without starting the conversation with Manu

Jon Krawczynski

As clock ticked down Rubio "was talking with my agents and I told them I really wanted to stay here. I told them to make something work."

Bill Herenda

Kings up 95-86 1:16 to go. Sac has held Blazers to 15 4th qtr points. Rudy Gay -36 points on 19 shots. #KingsTalk #NBA #SacKings

Mike Trudell

Griffin (29 points) has been a big problem for LAL's bigs, as Davis, Boozer and Hill all have 4 PF's, but Sacre's dunk has LAL up 81-78.

Royce Young

Suns lead Spurs, Kings lead Blazers, and Lakers lead Clippers. Halloween has gotten crazy.

Mark Heisler

#Laker team meeting on floor--while Clippers in-bound to Blake for dunk... All-time screwup for Lakes

Jon Krawczynski

Rubio on fans: "I didn't want to disappoint them and I want to stick here and play for them."
