The real reason Lakers/Clippers isn't a rivalry; Boozer; Barkley. All on the blog: bit.ly/1nXFQWw #nbareg

Kamenetzky Brothers

Boom. AK RT @Marcus Thompson: Klay Thompson and the Warriors have agreed to a 4 year, $70 million deal, sources said

Bill Oram

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

Bill Oram

Watching Cavs/Knicks. Charles Barkley ranted about all the Lakers national TV games: "This ain’t the 2000s anymore. Quit showing the Lakers"

Arash Markazi

Happy Halloween from Staples Center. http://t.co/Yfh1cQYo79

Ramona Shelburne

Jerry West has been among Klay's strongest supporters since this summer, when they refused to include him in Love trade talks

Ramona Shelburne

Optimism today that Warriors will get extension done w/ Klay Thompson. Sides not far apart & Dubs continue to get calls on him.

Mike Bresnahan

More Byron: Los Angeles will "always be purple and gold." Clippers have "a lot" of catching up to do.

Mike Bresnahan

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

John Ireland

Good idea--working on it RT @ejravalos: Can y'all play the thriller song or any Halloween theme song for #fastrack today ?

Jeanie Buss

#Lakers cutie! RT @iNeedTheNBA: @Jeanie Buss Laker girl in training!! http://t.co/xiTBEuTY4C

Ben Bolch

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

Bill Oram

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.

Gary Lee

On @TWCSportsNet, Jeremy Lin talks about his relationship with Kobe Bryant so far and of course, Dwight Howard. lakersnation.com/jeremy-lin-tal…

Bill Oram

Byron Scott steadfast that Lakers/Clips won't be a rivalry until LAC have 13 championships.

Gary Lee

Spurs won’t give up Kawhi Leonard, but I’ll give it a 1.7 percent chance he comes to the Lakers. Because Cavaliers.

Gary Lee

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.

It's so early, but everything matters for OKC. My column on Westbrook's hand nudging title window a bit more shut: bleacherreport.com/articles/22512…

Gary Lee

ICYMI: We're only two games in, but the Lakers could pursue LaMarcus Aldridge next summer. Don't think he leaves. lakersnation.com/lakers-rumors-…

Gary Lee

ICYMI: Michael Jordan recently talked about Kobe Bryant's contract extension and had a rather interesting response. lakersnation.com/michael-jordan…

Kevin Ding

Kendrick Perkins suggested maybe Saturday. RT @Nate Jones: When does Reggie Jackson get back?

Kevin Ding

Kendrick Perkins, upon being told by @Darnell Mayberry that collision with Perkins broke Westbrook's hand: "Was that the play? Damn."

Janis Carr

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"

Janis Carr

CP3 says he & Kobe are "great" friends. Send each other Christmas cards. "But when we are on the court, we understand what it is." #rivalry

Janis Carr

Clippers' high energy owner is on his game for opener ocregister.com/articles/clipp…

Melissa Rohlin

Blake Griffin on the Lakers: "They're a dangerous team."

Melissa Rohlin

Blake Griffin: "I think one of our problems is everyone was trying so hard."

Melissa Rohlin

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."

Melissa Rohlin

CP3 on how focused he is during games. "I don't even hear him," Paul said of Steve Ballmer.

Melissa Rohlin

CP3 says he'll be here early tomorrow after missing two free throws down the stretch tonight.

Melissa Rohlin

CP3 says Kobe's family and his family exchange Christmas cards, adding that they're great friends.

Janis Carr

Jamal Crawford said Ballmer came into the locker room and thanked the team for his first win. "He was pretty excited," Crawford said.

Arash Markazi

Doc on the Clippers playing the Lakers next: "It's a great rivalry, like USC and UCLA in the pros."

Melissa Rohlin

Doc on Clips getting outrebounded "I thought we rebounded better than them...I look at the offensive rebounds."

Melissa Rohlin

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."

Arash Markazi

Scott Brooks says Russell Westbrook has a small fracture in the second metacarpal of his right hand.

Ramona Shelburne

Can we make a collective decision to keep a camera on Steve Ballmer all game, every game ? #toofun

Arash Markazi

FINAL: Clippers 93, Thunder 90.

Arash Markazi

Blake Griffin fouls out on a double foul after that free throw. Clippers 91, Thunder 90 with 4.1 seconds left.

Arash Markazi

Chris Paul misses both free throws, Blake Griffin makes both. It really is a new day for the Clippers.

Arash Markazi

Big block by DeAndre Jordan. Chris Paul with rebound and pass to Blake Griffin, who gets fouled.

Arash Markazi

Chris Paul staring blankly during the huddle after missing both free throws.

Arash Markazi

Wow. Chris Paul just missed both free throws. It's still Clippers 89, Thunder 88 with 13.4 seconds left. Thunder ball.

Arash Markazi

Clippers 89, Thunder 88 with 1:44 left. Thunder are playing without Durant, Westbrook and Jackson.

Janis Carr

Incredibly, the Thunder, with only 8 players dressed, are within 1, 89-88, with 1:44 left

Janis Carr

Ballmer shown on video screen much to the delight of the fans

Melissa Rohlin

Dude, Steve Ballmer is going to sprain a wrist if he claps like a madman every time he's shown on the video board.

Arash Markazi

Steve Ballmer and Fergie before the fourth quarter. That's @ADBPhotoInc taking the photo. http://t.co/gzZEFpL7B0

Janis Carr

One person who Ballmer didn't stop and say hi was Shelly. #no1fan

Janis Carr

Now Ballmer is chatting with Billy Crystal...making the rounds

Janis Carr

Ballmer getting a hug and pic with Fergie

Melissa Rohlin

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...

Melissa Rohlin

My favorite tweeter is back on the prowl! MT @mikejames1971 First team to 60 wins. Looks like an early exhibition game.

Janis Carr

One thing missing from this Clippers game is @clipperdarrell . Where is he?

Arash Markazi

Russell Westbrook is back on the bench with his right hand wrapped and iced. He still has his uniform on.

Melissa Rohlin

Quarter-by-quarter updates, through halftime: latimes.com/sports/sportsn…

Ben Bolch

Things setting up nicely for Clippers with JV opponent tonight and freshman team tomorrow. Of course, they could still lose to the JV team.

David Brickley

This LeBron commercial looks like everyone in Cleveland is worshipping their prophet. A little much.

Ben Bolch

Clippers hold 46-41 halftime lead over Thunder in opener. Jamal Crawford leads Clippers with 10 points.

Janis Carr

Clippers lead at halftime, 46-41

Ben Bolch

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.

Arash Markazi

Thunder 38, Clippers 38 with 1:50 left in the 2nd quarter. The Thunder currently have eight available players.

Ben Bolch

Russell Westbrook has a right hand injury and is considered questionable to return.

Arash Markazi

Russell Westbrook has a right hand injury and his return is questionable.

Janis Carr

Westbrook hurt his hand and is questionable whether he will return. No Westbrook, no Durant. Clippers should win this

Kevin Ding

Was holding it and shaking it for several minutes before exit. RT @Darnell Mayberry: Westbrook right hand injury. His return is questionable.

Ben Bolch

Thunder down to eight available players for the moment with Russell Westbrook having returned to locker room with undisclosed issue.

Arash Markazi

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.

Arash Markazi

Russell Westbrook has to be restrained from a heckler as he heads back to the locker room.

Ben Bolch

Jamal Crawford putting it together after rough start, gets three-pointer that gives Clippers first lead of game and then fouled on shot.

Melissa Rohlin

I'm doing quarter-by-quarter updates tonight. Here ya for after one quarter: latimes.com/sports/sportsn…

Melissa Rohlin

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.

Janis Carr

Clippers get the commissioner. Lakers get Kim and Kanye.

Ben Bolch

I like Chris Douglas-Roberts much more as a slasher than a jump shooter. So far, jumpers.

Arash Markazi

A lukewarm reception for Adam Silver as he's shown on the big screen. These fans know he banned Donald Sterling for life, right?

Arash Markazi

Michael Eisner, sitting next to Shelly Sterling, leaves his seat to talk to Steve Ballmer at the end of the 1st quarter.

Ben Bolch

Clippers struggling on D, O, trail Thunder, 28-22, after first quarter of opener.

Arash Markazi

Common and Adam Silver chatting while Reggie Bush and Golden Tate take their seats nearby.

Ben Bolch

Matt Barnes, who made 6/44 shots and 1/24 threes in preseason, is now 3/4 and 1/2 on threes.

Gary Lee

Melissa Rohlin

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

Gary Lee

Congratulations to Derek Fisher on his first win as an NBA head coach!

Ben Bolch

It's like the preseason never happened for Matt Barnes, who makes his first three-pointer.

Melissa Rohlin

OKC is shooting 100% from the field. They're up, 10-2, with 9 mins left in the first.

Janis Carr

Shelly sitting in her usual courtside seats. No one has booed her.

Arash Markazi

Shelly & Fergie http://t.co/JfZZQ0UKHm

Upset alert: On ESPN right now, Florida St. losing by 3 to Louisville with 5 min left.
