Why hasn't ESPN flexed Blazers-Hawks into the Mavs-Heat slot tomorrow night yet?

Eric Pincus

Price said he finally gets the practice rant from Iverson - kind of minutes AI was putting up every night - sacrificing his body

Eric Pincus

Ronnie Price marveled at the minutes guys like Allen Iverson and Kobe Bryant have played through their careers on average

Eric Pincus

Jordan Clarkson said he felt the minutes (43) but that he's Young, he can handle it

Eric Pincus

That was a career high in minutes for Wayne Ellington (46) who said he felt great - and could keep going if needed

Sam Smith

Rose on 7-26: "Couldn’t get anything (to fall); floaters, threes, go to shots, but we were still in the game; just couldn't pull it out."

Sam Smith

Rose: "When people play us they know it’s going to be a tough time; we used to have that; it’s just now it’s not there."

Sam Smith

Rose: "if we continue to start the way we’ve been starting anyone can beat us; we’ve just got to come out with that edge and that energy."

Sam Smith

Rose: "We do (talk about it); we always talk about it. It’s something you just can’t talk about; it’s about action."

Kurt Helin

One day after having surgery, Kobe Bryant came to see Pau Gasol dlvr.it/8JgnlX

Sam Smith

Rose on D: "Can’t keep starting off the way we are starting; we’re letting teams get comfortable. Got to find our identity on the other end"

Gary Lee

If the Lakers aren’t winning a championship this season, I’d love to see Pau Gasol win his third.

Sam Smith

Butler on Lakers shooting 47: "One of these days we’re going to get tired of getting our butts kicked and decide to play defense."

Sam Smith

Butler: "I think what it is we can score so many points we think we don’t have to guard and that’s not the case. It hasn’t been working"

Sean Highkin

Who's out of a job first, Brian Shaw or Jacque Vaughn?

Sam Smith

Butler: "We’re not guarding anybody. That’s what you think when you think Chicago, how great we are on defense. We haven’t been that team."

Ryan Ward

Pau Gasol on championship years with Lakers: “That group of guys & that group of coaches was really special, we did some amazing things.”

Sam Smith

Butler w/35: "When we start off the right way, playing with pace, guarding, making good shots, making the right plays we are hard to beat."

Sean Highkin

Now I kind of want the Nuggets players to actually tell Shaw they don't feel like playing just to see how he reacts

Ryan Ward

Pau on LA legacy: “It was incredible. What I experienced here, what I was able to accomplish, what we were able to accomplish as a team..”

Sam Smith

Butler: "We didn’t come out ready and they whipped our tails from the beginning. If you don’t start out right it doesn’t finish right."

Ryan Ward

Pau on Lakers: “I came into a great organization, a great team. I wanted to give it my very best, like I always do.”

Mike Trudell

LAL snap their losing streak with a 123-118 win in double OT against Pau Gasol and Chicago. Hill had 26 and 12, Ellington 23, Clarkson 18.

Janis Carr

Kupchak and BScott were right....no tanking here. Lakers win, 123-116.

Steve Aschburner

Inexplicable, Jekyll/Hyde, whatever -- for some Bulls fans, as long as they're not talking season-ending injuries in 2014-15, it's all good.

Gary Lee

Thanks for tuning in tonight, #LakersNation! Follow me at my personal account @DanDuangdao and I have mixed emotions about this win.

Paul Coro

A win-win for PHX with #SunsVsBulls in 21 hours. Lakers win helps top-5-protected pick watch. Rose, Butler, Gasol & Noah log 40+ mins each.

Joe Cowley

Suns plan a video tribute of the pride that left the Bulls tonight. Tear already in my eye. It will be to Michael Jackson's "Ben.''

Chris Herring

Bulls are 13-9 against teams that are .500 or better. Only 17-10 against teams with records worse than .500. Weird team this year.

Eric Smith

All that work. CHI still falls short. Lakers win it in Double OT. Okay, bed calls. Raps-Nets tomorrow (well, later today....)

Nick Friedell

So Bulls beat the Warriors, lose to the Lakers -- knowing them they'll find some way to win in Phoenix tomorrow. Never know what to expect.

Getting ejected at the end of a loss is a good way to avoid talking to the media. Another way is being Kevin Garnett.

Lakers fans filing out of Staples saying: "We won a game!" Even they can't believe it.

Gary Lee

Byron Scott is holding back a smile since the Lakers are only up seven with 8.2 seconds left.

So for Chicago, this was like losing to GSW and then beating the Lakers. Except for 58 minutes night before PHX.

Nick Friedell

Jimmy Butler tied a career high with 35 points in 49 minutes.

Nick Friedell

Such a bad loss for the Bulls. Terrible.

Joe Cowley

The embarrassment against bum teams continues.

Joe Cowley

If you stayed up late to watch this ... that's on you.

Nick Friedell

The Bulls have played worse games this year, but to lose in double OT to a terrible Lakers squad may sting most of any loss all year.

Ryan Ward

With that 2nd free throw Jordan Clarkson tied his career-high with 18 points.

Mike Trudell

Rookie Jordan Clarkson matched his season/career high with 18 points by hitting 2 FT's. LAL up 7, 32.6 left.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls down 118-111....Get in to Phoenix late to take on the runnin Suns Friday night...

Adi Joseph

If you are in a place where sports gambling is legal and want to try it ... the Suns are at home vs. the Bulls in 21 hours.

Mike McGraw

Those bad possessions with a 5-point lead in 1st OT were costly. #Bulls down 7 with 32.6 secs left, facing tough game at PHX tomorrow.

Michael Lee

#bulls have had so many bad losses it's hard to keep count, or rank 'em...

Mark Medina

Doesn't look like there will be a 3rd OT. Clarkson makes both FT's as Lakers are up 118-111 w/ 32.6 seconds left

Steve Aschburner

Bulls began this game with a whimper, end it with a limper.

Joe Cowley

Butler's ankles are only good for 48.5 minutes a game ... GET IN THE WEIGHT ROOM, ALL-STAR!

Gary Lee

UPDATE: Not anymore after the missed jumper. RT @Gary Lee: Wes Johnson, #Clutch.

Mike Trudell

Had to leave the game. RT @Nick Friedell: Looks like Butler came down on somebody's foot, hurt his ankle. He is in some pain right now.

Sean Highkin

This was totally worth going to double OT.

Chris Palmer

Jimmy Butler has 35 points and 1 TO in 49 minutes.

Nick Friedell

Butler is out and being checked by Jeff Tanaka.

Mike Trudell

It's been a struggle for Derrick Rose … he's now 7 for 26 (27%) after another miss. LAL up 5, 36.3 left.

Eric Pincus

Lakers may actualy win this

KC Johnson

Butler is limping after stepping on somebody's foot. Snell checking in for him.

Joe Cowley

Go back to the Holy Family full-court press!!!!

Tony Jones

why is rose getting all the crunch time touches???? and not butler?

Nick Friedell

Looks like Butler came down on somebody's foot, hurt his ankle. He is in some pain right now.

Steve Aschburner

Only thing left is for Jordan Hill to unleash one of those 0.1 sec magic over-the-head shots he practices in summer w. cousin Trevor Booker.

Joe Cowley

Boozer only comes in when it's winning time!

KC Johnson

Jimmy Butler has tied his career-high with 35 points.

Mike Trudell

Jimmy Butler is now 16 for 18 from the FT line, and has 35 total points to get CHI back within 3, 1:44 to go in double OT.

Nick Friedell

This is nothing for Butler, though. He had that 60:20 game in Orlando last year during a triple OT win.

Joe Cowley

Adidas just cancelled its Feb. 26, 2027 meeting with Rose.

Mike McGraw

I'm moving Jordan Hill up to the top of the list of biggest all-star snubs.

Eric Pincus

Of course as I write that - Wesley just fouled Butler

Nick Friedell

Jimmy Butler is entering his 48th minute of play.

KC Johnson

Derrick Rose has played over 40 minutes in two straight games for the first time since January 2012.

Ryan Ward

Solid night for Pau Gasol in his LA return: 20 points, 9 boards & 6 assists - Jordan Hill: 26 points, 11 boards

Eric Pincus

Quietly having a good game is Wesley Johnson - tasked with guarding Jimmy Butler after Jimmy Butler went off big

Another basket by Jordan Hill and Lakers up five on Bulls in second OT with 1:53 left #Lakers #Bulls

Mark Medina

Somehow this game mirrored a tough and exciting contest you would see in a seven-game series.

Kevin Ding

Lakers were up for this game: right after Kobe surgery, TNT. They have gotten some of what each guy does best, haven't depended on threes.

Mike Trudell

Jordan Hill, again, drains a jumper and is now 11 for 22 for 26 points. His career high is 28 (twice: 3/23/14, 3/27/14). LAL up 114-109.

Gary Lee

Michael Jordan Hill with 26 points and 11 rebounds as the Lakers lead 114-109 with 1:53 remaining.

Joe Cowley

Bulls starting five tomorrow: Bairstow, Nazr, Nikola, Jeff Tanaka, and McDermott. #minutesrestrictions

Eric Pincus

Jordan Hill up to 26 points, 11 rebounds - Lakers 114-109 with 1:53 left - quite a game tonight - Jimmy Butler has been on 33 for some time

Chuck Swirsky

Hill open 19 footer left wing...(26 points)--Bulls down 114-109 with 153 left double OT

Sean Highkin

It's not even an argument. RT @waitfordusk: Jordan Hill is better than Olajuwon

Mike McGraw

That's a huge swing. Rose got clobbered on the other end with no call. #Bulls will need another big comeback in 2nd OT.

Howard Chen

#JordanRules (except in this case, for Jordan Hill lol)

Baxter Holmes

Not a great showing for Rose — 17 points on 7-25 from the floor. He’s also 1-7 from 3.

Gary Lee

What a block by Jordan Hill there.

Adi Joseph

Thibs probably can't believe Boozer is playing in overtime.

Jason Jones

My favorite B-Legit fan Robert Sacre just fouled out

Joe Cowley

"... I could care less .... "

Kamenetzky Brothers

"Carlos Boozer into the Lakers lineup..." And with that, the seas would part. BK

Gary Lee

Robert Sacre has fouled out and the future is uncertain in Los Angeles.

Joe Cowley

Derrick Rose quotes in 30 minutes: "I'm going to keep taking the shots they give me ... I've got to learn from tonight and move on ...

Mike Trudell

Robert Sacre fouled out at the 2:56 mark, so Carlos Boozer takes the court. Boozer had 16 and 8 in 25 minutes.

Kristina Leahy

Whatever happens, Jordan Clarkson found some swag tonight.

Tony Jones

everything from rose is short. no legs

Bill Oram

Robert Sacre fouls out after playing 31 minutes. Astounding.

Gary Lee

MICHAEL JORDAN CLARKSON WITH THE JUMPER.

Eric Pincus

Robert Sacre just fouled out - strong game - 9 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assists

Ramona Shelburne

Wayne Ellington could help some playoff teams.

Eric Pincus

Jordan Clarkson up to 16 points with 4 assists

Mike Trudell

Wayne Ellington has the 1st 2 buckets of double OT, putting LAL up 110-106, until Gasol's put-back gave him 19 and 9. 2-point game.

Eric Pincus

Wayne Ellington up to 19 points - Lakers up 4 - Gasol scores - Lakers up 2

Sean Highkin

Well, two-possession game. That's probably it.

Joe Cowley

The only ones pulling for triple-overtime right now are the Suns.

Gary Lee

Lakers are on a 2-0 run to start the second overtime. 108-106, Lakers.

Kamenetzky Brothers

Thibs has a practice scheduled for 10:45pm, so they need this to wrap up pretty quickly. BK

This would have been interesting how Kobe would've been handled in this whole double OT scenario. Byron said no more than 32 min

Paul Coro

It's almost #SunsVsBulls game day but Chicago is still playing in L.A. Bulls-Lakers in 2OT. Also important for top-5-protected pick watch.

Benjamin Hochman

My favorite song about luftballons is "99 Luftballons."

Michael Lee

This game should've been over. #bulls failed to take advantage of #lakers' best tanking efforts. CHI needs more Jimmy Butler to win this...

Minutes played: Hill (36); Ellington (42); Clarkson (38); Sacre (29); Johnson (31); Butler (45); Gasol (39); Rose (38); Noah (38);Brooks(18)

David Aldridge

This is keeping me up waayyyy past bedtime…but it's fun! #Lakers #Bulls

KC Johnson

Huge update: Tom Petty not in his courtside seat for start of 2nd OT.

Kamenetzky Brothers

“I get to play Jimmy Butler 50 minutes & there’s not a damn thing anyone can do about it.” - Thibs’ thought bubble, probably. AK

Nick Friedell

The killer for the Bulls is that all the starters, minus Mirotic, have played heavy minutes and they've got PHX tomorrow night.

Kristina Leahy

Raise your hand if you thought this game would be so good/go to double OT.

Robert Morales

Derrick Rose can't connect at OT buzzer, so we're going to double OT here at Staples Center #Lakers #Bulls

Ramona Shelburne

Not sure I need to see double OT in this one.

Chuck Swirsky

Rose misfires right wing 23 footer...double OT here we come 106-106... In 174 games between Bulls-Lakers first double OT between two teams

Joe Cowley

Spurs would have had five passes on that possession, ending with some back-door cut and basket that makes your eyes tear up.

Sean Highkin

Someone tell the Bulls they're in Phoenix tomorrow.

Lang Whitaker

Adam Silver should end this for the good of the game.

Eric Smith

Bulls never had a lead ... til OT. They go up 5 in OT...Lakers tie it. Double OT now. Wild game.

Candace Buckner

Derrick Rose stepback… not as glorious as the other night

Mike Trudell

Indeed, it's a Derrick Rose step-back jumper … the same one he hit in OT vs. GSW … but he missed this one. Double OT coming.

Mark Medina

Derrick Rose 20-footer barely nips the rim. We got double OT. In other words, Jordan Clarkson is cramming nearly 2 NBA games into 1

Bill Oram

Double OT. Take a second and imagine if Kobe were healthy. He'd be sitting on the bench, 32 minutes under his belt, going absolutely crazy.

Nick Friedell

Derrick Rose misses at the buzzer. No lift on that jumper after 38 minutes. We are headed to double OT at Staples.

Sean Highkin

Which borderline playoff team is going to give up a first-rounder for Jordan Hill?I'd say the Nets but they have no picks until 2050.

Adi Joseph

If I only could, I'd be running up that Jordan Hill.

Mike Trudell

Derrick Rose step back coming?

Jason Jones

Sometimes the All-Star team is the "let's pick a player from a good team because that team needs someone there" Game.

Nine-game losing streak on the line for the Lakers right now. Dignity on the line for the Bulls.

Chip Crain

Let's check that Nurkic stat line from tonight http://t.co/FflMo7dzSM

Sam Smith

Noah with a big block on Ellington drive ahead 2 w/20 secs in overtime. Screams in delight. Gets 3 screen test offers for Rebel w/o Cause

Mike Trudell

To reiterate, Noah - with that key block there - has been the energizer for Chicago's comeback. Looking more like himself than 1st half.

Chris Sheridan

Reggie Jackson is at a crossroads in his career: sheridanhoops.com/2015/01/29/reg…

Mike Trudell

Pau Gasol split FT's, and Noah blocked Ellington at the rim with 20.5 seconds to go. 9.0 on the shot clock after a time out. LAL down 2.

KC Johnson

Bulls have to be very, very encouraged with how Joakim Noah has moved these last two games. He said it's best he has felt all season.

Sean Highkin

Quietly, Noah's had two effective games in a row.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls 106-104 -Lakers ball 9 on the clock 20 sec left in OT

Chris Sheridan

Could the Hawks ride their winning streak into their Feb. 6 game against the Warriors? sheridanhoops.com/2015/01/29/thr…

Nick Friedell

Somebody gif Noah's reaction after that block.

Eric Pincus

Noah block with 9 on the Lakers' shot clock

Mark Medina

Pau sinks the second. Bulls up 106-104, under 30 seconds left...

Adi Joseph

Wayne Ellington is a good example of a guy who could have been an absolute superstar in Europe. Might even have made more money.

Eric Pincus

Pau misses first FT - hits 2nd

Mark Medina

Weird to hear Laker fans booing Pau as he goes to the FT line. Pau misses the first one. Bulls up 105-104 w/ 35.1 seconds left....

Eric Pincus

Ellington layup - Pau fouled by Sacre - 2 FT 35.1 left 105-104 before FT

Gary Lee

Nice drive by Wayne Ellington there and Lakers only trail by one.

Mike Trudell

A pretty drive by Wayne Ellington followed 2 Clarkson FT's to cut Chicago's lead to 1 with 45 seconds to play.

Eric Pincus

Lakers 98, Chicago Bulls 98 (end of fourth quarter) - currently 105-102 Bulls latimes.com/sports/lakers/…

Gary Lee

Bulls with the backcourt violation and the Lakers have an opportunity to tie the game after the timeout.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls 105-102 Lakers ball 57 sec left OT

Lang Whitaker

Feels like the Bulls are playing 5-on-4 in overtime.

Sean Highkin

No team in the league is close to being on the Lakers' level in terms of artful tanking. Not the Knicks, not the Sixers, not anyone.

Eric Pincus

Back court violation Bulls - Lakers ball 105-102 Chicago with 57 seconds on the clock
