Are we really supposed to believe @John Ireland, who lets "Social Network" clips think for him, could have invented Blame Pie? C'mon now. AK

Kamenetzky Brothers

It is telling that @John Ireland’s defense (“If you guys were the inventors of blame pie, you’d have invented blame pie.”) is also stolen. AK

HOLD ON! Twice in 3 days in “How to Lose a Guy” the Kings play the Knicks at the Garden. I discovered the ONE unrealistic part of the movie

Byron Scott, Nick Young not on the same page right now - Details - examiner.com/article/byron-… #Lakers

Bill Oram

The “Sleepless in Seattle” scene of “How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days” has to be the most meta thing to ever happen in a chick flick.

Bill Oram

In honor of Kings at Knicks tomorrow, the Mrs. and I are watching “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.” Scott Pollard shoots FTs at the Garden!

Ryan Ward

Byron Scott: “I think we’ve had 20 Turnovers or more in our last 4 or 5 games.”

Ramona Shelburne

FWIW, I saw Nick Young leave Staples Center on Sunday night. He was with a member of the Lakers community relations department.

Ryan Ward

Byron Scott: “The effort, like I said, that hasn’t been an issue. The TOs, that has been an issue. Again, we had 21 TOs tonight…

Ramona Shelburne

Rotator cuff surgery is about a 6 month recovery period. So I'm hearing Kobe wants to research everything before going under the knife.

Kevin Ding

Byron is old school, believing deeply in withholding playing time to teach lessons. No doubt hopeful Nick will step into some of Kobe void.

Ramona Shelburne

Kobe is the type to exhaust all options before a decision and I'm told that's what he's doing now. So far, everyone has recommended surgery

Ramona Shelburne

Kobe has an appointment with Dr. ElAttrache tomorrow. After that we may or may not have an update on whether he's decided to undergo surgery

Kevin Ding

Lin gave a stock answer about doing the best he can whether he plays zero, 10 or 40 minutes, but admitted he's thankful he didn't sit again.

Kevin Ding

Lin not only got to play, he got to run a lot of pick and roll--obviously more his style. Byron said he wants Jeremy to be "consistent."

Bill Oram

Not your fight, Dot Com. :) RT @Baxter Holmes: @Bill Oram Much easier to make deadline tho.

Janis Carr

Young ditched reporters after playing just nine minutes. So no explanation for his lackadasical play

Bill Oram

Did not cover game tonight. But Nick Young, apparently, left without speaking to reporters? What an absurd trend.

Janis Carr

BScott on Young; "It looked to me like he didn’t want to be here. Thats how I looked at it."

Kamenetzky Brothers

It really would. AK MT @forumbluegold: Young keeps things lighthearted in an awful season. Him turning sour would be an interesting dynamic.

Kamenetzky Brothers

This season copy is gold, man. AK RT @regularbarnett: Only reporters care that Nick Young did not speak to reporters.

Gary Lee

Nick Young is the least of the Lakers' problems right now. RT @Ryan Ward: Nick Young left without speaking to us. Not good.

Ryan Ward

Nick Young left without speaking to us. Not good.

Thanks for tuning in tonight, #LakersNation. Follow me at my personal account @DanDuangdao and losing is winning at this point.

Janis Carr

Lakers drop their eighth consecutive game, lose to Rockets, 99-87.

Mike Trudell

Final: Rockets 99, Lakers 87. Boozer had 18 and 11 off the bench, Lin 14 (10 FT's) and 6, Ellington 13 and 5. Harden had 37/8/5.

Beto Duran

All smiles, Dwight chants along to "Howard sucks" chant from Lakers fans

Mike Bresnahan

Lakers fans uncork a "Howard Sucks" chant. He's on the Rockets' bench in a light blue suit, out with a sprained ankle.

Ryan Ward

“Howard Sucks!” chants @STAPLESCenter Dwight laughing on the Rockets bench about it with Houston up 14.

Mike Trudell

Harden checks out with 37 points, 8 boards and 5 assists with 6 turnovers and 2 steals.

Ryan Ward

Scratch that. 37 points for James Harden. Lakers have NO answer for the player likely to replace Kobe as the West All-Star starter.

Gary Lee

James Harden was barely touched on his jumper, but refs call a foul. vine.co/v/OHDQigJTFBv

Mike Trudell

Tarik Black has been moving pretty well on that ankle. We'll see if he gets additional PT over the next several games.

Ryan Ward

Rockets fans right behind me shouting “M-V-P… M-V-P” for James Harden. 32 points for the Rockets SG.

Mike Trudell

Ed Davis has played well in the paint tonight, up to 13 rebounds with his 6 points, block and steal.

Gary Lee

Obviously late to the party, but what hashtags are we using for Jahlil Okafor and potential #FutureLakers?

Mike Trudell

He's available - just Scott's decision as to why not playing 2nd half. RT @rg3219: @Mike Trudell why have they not played Swaggy more?

Kamenetzky Brothers

It’s hard enough to split defenders as it is, much less when the screener is wedged between them. AK

Mike Trudell

A run-stopping 3 from Corey Brewer cuts that LAL push a bit, Houston back up 14 with 4:34 to play. HOU has hit 13 3's, LAL only 1.

Janis Carr

Lakers making a run at the Rockets, closing gap to 11 pts. Rockets had led by 25.

Gary Lee

Players don't tank and the Lakers were competitive for the most part, but this new lineup change that will last 15-20 games? Nope.

Mike Trudell

Around consecutive missed 3's from Harden, Black got a layup and Lin 2 FT's to make it a 16-2 run. Rockets lead down to 11.

Gary Lee

Midway through 4, Lakers are on a 14-2 run and only trail by 12.

Mike Bresnahan

Look who's in the doghouse now: Nick Young. He's played all of nine minutes.

Ben Bolch

Best thing about a trip to Phoenix is Oregano's in Tempe. http://t.co/l25oJORKmS

Gary Lee

I thought last season was bad, but this season is on a whole new level.

Mike Trudell

Sure enough, McHale has seen enough from his bench and comes back with the starters and Brewer for Ariza, his team up 15 with 6:56 left.

Mike Trudell

LAL have used a 12-2 run to get within 15 points at 89-74. We may see how much the lead has to be trimmed for Harden to return.

Mike Trudell

Black, of course, was waived by the Rockets, allowing LAL to claim him.

Mike Trudell

Rookie Tarik Black, a question mark to play with a sprained ankle from last week, checks in at the 7:15 mark for Boozer (18 and 11).

Gary Lee

Better late than never, Ross. RT @Ross_Gasmer12: @Gary Lee Pretty dumb it's taken you this long.

Gary Lee

NICK YOUNG HAS ZERO POINTS AND HAS ONLY PLAYED NINE MINUTES. TANK YOU, BYRON.

Kamenetzky Brothers

Swaggy D, as in “Doghouse?” Nick Young hasn’t played yet in the second half. AK

Mike Trudell

Boozer, for one, has a nice game going, with 18 points and 10 boards in his 19 minutes (9 for 12 FG's) plus 2 assists. HOU up 87-67.

Gary Lee

I waited until the Lakers were mathematically out of the playoffs to tweet about tanking last season, but I'm starting early. My goodness.

Mike Trudell

Nick Young didn't play in the 3rd Q and remains on the bench to start the 4th. Ellington's in with Lin in the backcourt.

Bill Oram

Streak: L L L L L L L … L RT @Janis Carr: Lakers down, 52-36 at the half. Harden with 20 first half points. Boozer leads Lakers with 10

Mike Trudell

Rockets lead 80-60 after 3 Q's, Harden going for 32 points to lead HOU. LAL got 16 off the bench from Boozer, 10 and 7 from Hill.

Gary Lee

At the end of 3, Lakers trail by a lot.

Gary Lee

WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME, LAKERS? THIS IS SO BAD.

Gonna be ugly... RT @Robert Morales: Byron Scott said current starting lineup will remain this way for "15 to 20 games." #Lakers

Gary Lee

Lakers are struggling to score and their best scorer (Nick Young) has only played eight minutes. Yeah, that makes a lot of sense.

Ryan Ward

Nick Young has played the least amount of minutes for the Lakers so far with 9. Closest to him is Ed Davis with 10.

Gary Lee

Bill Macdonald talking about @kelly_clarkson as Lakers are down. http://t.co/pgFE0PAGJE

Mike Trudell

LAL continue to trail, 71-51, as the most of the subs (Nick Young still on the bench) check in with 3:35 left in the 3rd. Harden's up to 28.

Gary Lee

Back to reality. Lakers are down 20.

Gary Lee

Not that many teams make it back to the Finals after losing the previous season, but the 2009 Lakers were incredible from start to finish.

Gary Lee

Trevor Ariza with the free throws and also, I miss that 2009 Lakers team. http://t.co/TEV9AcKsaS

Gary Lee

Rockets start the second half on an 8-2 run and Lakers trail by 19.

Gary Lee

37 more games. RT @iBarber504: @Gary Lee lets just start a new season for @Gary Lee

Gary Lee

In a time where most players don't exactly have a post game, Donatas Motiejunas has a decent one and he is only 24.

Gary Lee

Second half is underway. #Lakers

Gary Lee

Unfortunately, I don't know anymore. RT @Ryan777elite: @Gary Lee ball was deflated?

Gary Lee

It's only his second start. RT @Weak_Side_Help: @Gary Lee The kid has a loooooooooooong way to go. At best, a 4th or 5th stringer.

Janis Carr

Lakers down, 52-36 at the half. Harden with 20 first half points. Boozer leads Lakers with 10

Mike Bresnahan

James Harden has 20 points in the first half. The Lakers have 36. I won't completely rule out Harden catching them in the third quarter.
