Dude! Westbrook dropped a triple-double 49-16-10 with a fractured cheek?!!! Leuzinger! #DontHateOnTheBrodie

Beto Duran

Blazers beat Clips 98-93 in OT. Tough loss for LA. Excellent call tonight @RyanRuocco

Melissa Rohlin

Final: Portland beats Clippers in OT, 98-93.

Beto Duran

Have always liked Batum's game. Wonder how he would do popularity wise in a big market

Melissa Rohlin

Portland is on a 6-0 run in OT to lead 93-89 with 2 minutes left.

Melissa Rohlin

CP shoots a driving jumper with 0.7 left that circles around the rim, then bounces out. Looks like we're going to OT.

Beto Duran

Up by 3 with :5 to go, San Diego St FOULS and goes on to win. What a concept. Why more NBA teams dont do this is odd. Cc @John Ireland

Melissa Rohlin

Wi 25.1 seconds left in the and the Clippers up by three points, 87-84, Nicolas Batum made an uncontested three pointer to tie the game.

Beto Duran

Big 3 shot by Batum. Blazers tied up w Clippers at 87 w :25.1 to go on ESPN. Sounding good @RyanRuocco

Melissa Rohlin

CP has 8 points in the first 8 mins of the 4th, including scoring last six consecutive baskets for Clips.

Melissa Rohlin

CP3 just sent Damian Lillard flying with a xover, then sank a jumper near the free throw line with 6 mins left. He has 28 pts and 10 assists

Melissa Rohlin

Big Baby just played strong defense on Aldridge, forcing him to shoot a long 3. The Staples Center crowd rose to their feet to applaud him.

Melissa Rohlin

DJ has 15 rebounds w just under 9 minutes left. It's his 10th straight game with 15 or more boards.

Melissa Rohlin

The Clips led by as many as 11 pts in the 3rd, but the Trail Blazers clawed their way back to cut the deficit to 2, 68-66, heading into 4th.

Janis Carr

Clippers hanging on, lead 68-66 heading into the fourth quarter

Janis Carr

Clippers lead down to three, 66-63, with 2 mins left in 3rd. Had led by 11

Janis Carr

CP3 picks up his fourth foul, which could hurt. His defense on Lillard has been key. Lillard is 0/8 with 1 point so far

Per @JonHeymanCBS, Dodgers are offering to pay half of Ethier's contract to move him. Better bump that up. AK cbsprt.co/1FZHTNT

Janis Carr

Turkoglu, not Rivers, took that last shot. My bad

Melissa Rohlin

Halftime: Clippers 48, Trail Blazers 46. CP3 leads all scorers w 17 points and 4 assists. Portland has 9 turnovers, the Clippers have 3.

Janis Carr

Austin Rivers misses 3-pt shot at buzzer, but Clippers still take a 48-46 lead into halftime.

Running Diary of tweets from LAL's narrow loss in Miami: on.nba.com/1wIXSjQ

Janis Carr

Lakers miss another chance at a victory. This time, they lose to Miami, 100-94.

Ryan Ward

4 bench players for the Lakers (Lin, Davis, Hill & Wes) outscored 5 starters. 51 to 43. Also outrebounded the starters. 28 to 14.

Gary Lee

Thanks for tuning in, #LakersNation. Follow me at @DanDuangdao if you want and what is there to do in Arizona tonight? Asking for a friend.

Mike Trudell

Final:100-94 Heat; Wade + Whiteside closed out an entertaining game in MIA. Check out @geeter3 and Co. postgame on @TWCSportsNet.

Gary Lee

With 4.5 seconds left, Hassan Whiteside makes both free throws as the Lakers are down by six.

Mike Trudell

Rebound No. 25 from Whiteside followed misses from Lin and Johnson. He hit both this time. MIA up 100-94, 04.5 seconds left.

Gary Lee

Jordan Clarkson misses the potential game-tying three, but there was no fear on that attempt. Encouraging.

Mike Trudell

Clarkson missed a potential game-tying 3, and Lin fouled Whiteside after his 24th rebound. 1 of 2 FT's put MIA up 4, 15 sec. left.

Gary Lee

Hassan Whiteside with 15 points, 23 rebounds and four blocks. Also, #FutureLaker. I suppose.

Mike Trudell

Whiteside tonight: 15 points, 23 rebounds, 4 blocks. Hill's battled him this 4th Q, has 13 points and 10 boards.

Ryan Ward

Hassan Whiteside: 15 points, 23 boards and 4 blocks. Talk about a steal for Miami. Kid is the real deal.

Mike Trudell

2/2: After Hill's reverse under the rim, Whiteside got a layup on the other end, from Wade, to put Miami up 97-94 with 21.3 seconds left.

Gary Lee

Timeout, Lakers. Hassan Whiteside's layup gives the Heat a three point lead with 21.3 seconds remaining.

Bill Oram

And then there was that. RT @Kamenetzky Brothers: That might have been Hill's best play as a Laker. BK

Mike Trudell

1/2: Wow, a huge one-handed alley-oop slam for Whiteside from Wade … then Hill gets a near dunk around Whiteside...

Kamenetzky Brothers

That might have been Hill's best play as a Laker. BK

Kamenetzky Brothers

I don't understand how some people simultaneously diminish the value of 2nd round picks and then get excited about Clarkson. BK

Gary Lee

What a pass from Jeremy Lin to Jordan Hill as Lakers are still trailing by three with 45.0 seconds left.

Bill Oram

That pass was as good of a play as Jeremy Lin has made all season.

Mike Trudell

Wade made a great play to get his own miss on the O glass, and hit both FT's to put MIA back up 3 … but Hill answered on Lin's 9th dime.

Gary Lee

Jordan Clarkson attacked the basket, but took a hard foul from Hassan Whiteside. He made both free throws as Lakers trail by one with 1:44.

Mike Trudell

Clarkson took it strong to the hoop, took a hard foul, but bounced up to hit 2 FT's. LAL back within 1, 1:44 left.

Mike Bresnahan

Wors-case scenario for Lakers these days: Jordan Clarkson taking a hard fall, landing on his back. Just happened vs. Miami but he seems OK.

Kamenetzky Brothers

Quite a serpentine exhibition of pain from Clarkson... BK

Gary Lee

DON'T BE HURT, CLARKSON.

Mike Trudell

Ellington made a nice extra pass to Clarkson under the rim, but Whiteside came over for his 5th block plus 23 boards. MIA up 3, 1:53 left.

Gary Lee

Ed Davis was playing well with 14 points and 12 rebounds, so he gets taken out with 2:20 remaining.

Mike Trudell

Miami aggressively trapped Lin, who's been running LAL's O, and Wade stole the ball from Kelly. Whiteside hit 1 of 2 FT's after Kelly's PF.

Gary Lee

JODIE MEEKS BE LIKE. RT @CountOnVic: Laker legend Jodie Meeks just made a clutch shot if you wanted to know

Gary Lee

Goran Dragic isn't even a Laker yet, but he's helping them win. Because, losing is winning at this point.

Gary Lee

Goran Dragic's three gives Heat a 90-88 lead with 3:19 left in the game.

Mike Trudell

Big 3 from Goran Dragic gets him to 21 points on just 10 shots, putting Miami up 90-88 at the 3:19 mark.

Gary Lee

With four minutes left, Lakers lead 88-87. Do what you have to do, Lakers.

Janis Carr

Doc says there's a chance Blake Griffin could play Sunday. Clippers will practice twice before then

Gary Lee

Hassan Whiteside was about to tackle another player, but realized Ed Davis is my homeboy and backed off.

Mike Trudell

Davis committed a hard foul on Whiteside after an O board, which ends up being smart, as Whiteside missed both FT's (2 for 7 tonight).

Gary Lee

Lakers are limiting him to zero minutes to preserve his legs. RT @NUFAN24: @Gary Lee why doesn't black play anymore?

Mike Trudell

Lin stays hot, up to 12 points with 8 assists + 4 steals to give LAL an 88-85 lead with 5:32 to play. Ellington, Johnson, Hill + Davis in.

Gary Lee

Numbers of game played. RT @6_GAWD: @Gary Lee what are we counting, exactly?

Gary Lee

Wes Johnson, 58.75 --> Activated.

Gary Lee

After missing a dunk, Henry Walker has changed his name back to Bill.

Gary Lee

Nice pass from Jeremy Lin to Ed Davis as Lakers take a 84-80 lead.

Mike Trudell

Ed Davis has been excellent tonight: 15 points and 11 boards after a tough hoop inside. Lin's up to 8 assists, LAL up 84-80 with 7:15 left.

Gary Lee

ED DAVIS IS MY HOMEBOY.

Gary Lee

After a timeout, Lakers draw up a play for a Wesley Johnson three. Lolz.

Gary Lee

Lakers were on Goran Dragic's wishlist at the trade deadline. RT @Aguilassx: @Gary Lee no one wants to play for the lakers 😒

Mike Trudell

Dwyane Wade (18 points through 3 Q's) is tied with LeBron for 4th Q points with 6.9 per night. We'll see when he checks in.

Mike Trudell

With 8:30 to play, we're all square at 80 in Miami. Good game so far, the squads going back and forth towards 8 ties, 5 lead changes.

Gary Lee

Goran Dragic with a strong audition for the Lakers as he has 18 points, four rebounds and six assists already.

Mike Trudell

Dragic has been in LAL's paint all night, now with 18 points and 6 assists on 5 of 9 FG's and 8 of 8 FT's. But LAL hanging, tied at 80.

Gary Lee

Wes Johnson on a 5-0 run as the Lakers tie the game at 78.

Gary Lee

Michael Beasley is like the girl you left and came back to after your #FutureWife left for Cleveland.

Mike Trudell

LAL's starters have had trouble elevating their play as opponents do in 3rd Q. They play hard consistently, just don't have that next gear.

Mike Trudell

Miami outscored LAL 30-22 in the 3rd Q to take a 76-73 lead into the final period. Davis has 12 and 10, Lin 8 and 6 off the pine.

Mike Trudell

LAL are on an 11-2 run, after Ellington put back a Lin miss, then found Lin for a 3. Lin has 9 points and 6 assists, Ellington 13 and 3.

Gary Lee

After Jeremy Lin's three, Lakers only trail by one with 44.4 left in the third.

Gary Lee

Hassan Whiteside with a technical foul and his 'emotion' rating will increase after next NBA 2K update.

Mike Trudell

Same story for LAL in the 3rd: starters give up a run, subs start to bring them back. Lin/Davis have LAL within 4.
