HoopsHype Los Angeles Lakers twitter
Looking back at Boozers's TOs in PHX. Suns lead ballooned from 8 to 15 without LAL getting a single shot due to three consecutive Boozer TOs
Watching Cavs/Knicks. Charles Barkley ranted about all the Lakers national TV games: "This ain’t the 2000s anymore. Quit showing the Lakers"
Happy Halloween from Staples Center. http://t.co/Yfh1cQYo79
Jerry West has been among Klay's strongest supporters since this summer, when they refused to include him in Love trade talks
Optimism today that Warriors will get extension done w/ Klay Thompson. Sides not far apart & Dubs continue to get calls on him.
More Byron: Los Angeles will "always be purple and gold." Clippers have "a lot" of catching up to do.
Is LA still a Lakers town? Or have Clippers made inroads? "When they get about 13 banners, then it will be a rivalry," Byron Scott said
The first line of the Lakers' game notes sent to Clippers beat writers today reads "Welcome to Los Angeles!" Thanks. It was such a long trip
I've said it a million times, titles aren't primary factor in a rivalry. Need history, bad blood. All-LA playoff series would be a start.
Byron Scott steadfast that Lakers/Clips won't be a rivalry until LAC have 13 championships.
Spurs won’t give up Kawhi Leonard, but I’ll give it a 1.7 percent chance he comes to the Lakers. Because Cavaliers.
Don’t care if Kawhi Leonard will be a restricted free agent in seven months. Started the hashtag today because he’s my 2nd favorite player.
CP# on Kobe: "He has the will to compete and it has always been like that. That is what everyone loves about him...why he is 1 of the best"
Blake Griffin on the Lakers: "They're a dangerous team."
Blake Griffin: "I think one of our problems is everyone was trying so hard."
Blake on whether he would've put himself in a position to shoot free throws in such a close game 2 years ago: "I dont know, but I will now."
CP3 on how focused he is during games. "I don't even hear him," Paul said of Steve Ballmer.
CP3 says he'll be here early tomorrow after missing two free throws down the stretch tonight.
CP3 says Kobe's family and his family exchange Christmas cards, adding that they're great friends.
Jamal Crawford said Ballmer came into the locker room and thanked the team for his first win. "He was pretty excited," Crawford said.
Doc on the Clippers playing the Lakers next: "It's a great rivalry, like USC and UCLA in the pros."
Doc on Clips getting outrebounded "I thought we rebounded better than them...I look at the offensive rebounds."
Rivers on if CP3 is gonna beat himself up for missing 2 free throws in final seconds: "I hope so. He should beat the hell out of himself."
Scott Brooks says Russell Westbrook has a small fracture in the second metacarpal of his right hand.
FINAL: Clippers 93, Thunder 90.
Blake Griffin fouls out on a double foul after that free throw. Clippers 91, Thunder 90 with 4.1 seconds left.
Chris Paul misses both free throws, Blake Griffin makes both. It really is a new day for the Clippers.
Big block by DeAndre Jordan. Chris Paul with rebound and pass to Blake Griffin, who gets fouled.
Chris Paul staring blankly during the huddle after missing both free throws.
Wow. Chris Paul just missed both free throws. It's still Clippers 89, Thunder 88 with 13.4 seconds left. Thunder ball.
Clippers 89, Thunder 88 with 1:44 left. Thunder are playing without Durant, Westbrook and Jackson.
Incredibly, the Thunder, with only 8 players dressed, are within 1, 89-88, with 1:44 left
Ballmer shown on video screen much to the delight of the fans
Dude, Steve Ballmer is going to sprain a wrist if he claps like a madman every time he's shown on the video board.
Now Ballmer is chatting with Billy Crystal...making the rounds
Ballmer getting a hug and pic with Fergie
Staples Center is playing Fergie's new song. She's being shown on the video board dancing to it. You know you're in LA when...
Russell Westbrook is back on the bench with his right hand wrapped and iced. He still has his uniform on.
Things setting up nicely for Clippers with JV opponent tonight and freshman team tomorrow. Of course, they could still lose to the JV team.
This LeBron commercial looks like everyone in Cleveland is worshipping their prophet. A little much.
Clippers hold 46-41 halftime lead over Thunder in opener. Jamal Crawford leads Clippers with 10 points.
Clippers lead at halftime, 46-41
Clippers in pretty good spot considering they have lead with Blake Griffin and J.J. Redick a combined 2/13 and Westbrook may not return.
Thunder 38, Clippers 38 with 1:50 left in the 2nd quarter. The Thunder currently have eight available players.
Russell Westbrook has a right hand injury and is considered questionable to return.
Russell Westbrook has a right hand injury and his return is questionable.
Westbrook hurt his hand and is questionable whether he will return. No Westbrook, no Durant. Clippers should win this
Thunder down to eight available players for the moment with Russell Westbrook having returned to locker room with undisclosed issue.
No word yet on why Russell Westbrook went back to the locker room. Looked like he might have hurt his right hand going up for the ball.
Russell Westbrook has to be restrained from a heckler as he heads back to the locker room.
Jamal Crawford putting it together after rough start, gets three-pointer that gives Clippers first lead of game and then fouled on shot.
Blake Griffin and CP3 have a really fun promo for Jordan brand that was just shown on the video board. If anyone has a link, tweet it to me.
Clippers get the commissioner. Lakers get Kim and Kanye.
I like Chris Douglas-Roberts much more as a slasher than a jump shooter. So far, jumpers.
A lukewarm reception for Adam Silver as he's shown on the big screen. These fans know he banned Donald Sterling for life, right?
Michael Eisner, sitting next to Shelly Sterling, leaves his seat to talk to Steve Ballmer at the end of the 1st quarter.
Clippers struggling on D, O, trail Thunder, 28-22, after first quarter of opener.
Common and Adam Silver chatting while Reggie Bush and Golden Tate take their seats nearby.
Matt Barnes, who made 6/44 shots and 1/24 threes in preseason, is now 3/4 and 1/2 on threes.
OKC is outshooting the Clips, 70% to 30% right now. The Clips' saving grace right now? The free throw line, where they've made all 4
Congratulations to Derek Fisher on his first win as an NBA head coach!
It's like the preseason never happened for Matt Barnes, who makes his first three-pointer.
OKC is shooting 100% from the field. They're up, 10-2, with 9 mins left in the first.
Shelly sitting in her usual courtside seats. No one has booed her.
Shelly & Fergie http://t.co/JfZZQ0UKHm
Upset alert: On ESPN right now, Florida St. losing by 3 to Louisville with 5 min left.
