CARLOS BOOZER STEALS THE BALL AND MISSES THE LAYUP. THIS IS A REAL TWEET. OF COURSE.
These have not been a pretty 15 seconds or so for the Clippers. AK
Guessing Clarkson gets back into this game, but we'll see. With 5:30 to play, NOP lead 103-84. Davis has 20-6-6-3 for the Pelicans.
No triple-double? Clarkson might be done for the night with 18 pts, 10 assists and 7 rebs. Lakers down 19 with 5:30 left to play.
Chris Paul with a season-high 37 points to go with 17 assists.
Chris Paul's 20-fooot jumper gives him a season-high 37 points.
Just for fun, there have been 3 Lakers rookies with triple-doubles: Magic (7), West (2) and Elgin (1). They were good at basketball.
Jordan Clarkson checks out with 18p, 10a, 7r. Lin in with 7:12 left and the Lakers down 22.
Clarkson's heading to the bench with 7:12 left, still 3 rebounds shy of that potential triple-double.
If there was a re-draft of the 2014 NBA Draft, Jordan Clarkson of Missouri would be a lottery pick.
Clarkson got his double-double on Hill's driving layup (18 points, 10 dimes), and needs 3 more boards in 8:20 for a triple-double.
Jordan Clarkson is nearing a triple-double (19 points, 9 assists & 7 boards) yet the Lakers are getting destroyed. Losing by 23
Jordan Clarkson has 18 points on nine shot attempts, which is considered efficient. More efficient than a silver Honda Civic Hybrid.
Chris Paul has 35 points and 17 assists so far. Not a bad response to getting inundated by memes from Kevin Hart last night.
After Norris Cole's three, Lakers trail 95-70 with 10:15 left in the game.
A triple-double still in reach for Jordan Clarkson: 16 points, 9 rebounds, 7 assists with 10 minutes to go in fourth.
The Clippers once trailed by 19 points in this game and some idiots (cough, cough) were calling for the starters to be yanked.
CP3 for 3 and the Clippers are now up 114-103 with 3:03 left. I'm not sure where this came from. Clippers looked dead in the first half.
Chris Paul three-pointer gives him 35 points and the Clippers a 114-103 lead over Trail Blazers with 3:03 left. OH MY GOODNESS.
DeAndre Jordan had made five straight free throws. He was due for an air ball.
The Pelicans controlled the 3rd Q much as they did the 2nd, enough to take a 90-70 lead into the final period.
Clippers 110, Blazers 103 with 3:28 left and it's time for Hack-a-DJ.
Clarkson's itching closer to that triple-double, now with 16 points (6 of 8 FG's), 9 assists and 7 rebounds late in the 3rd Q.
Anthony Davis blocks Carlos Boozer and you know this is a real tweet. Ha.
The Clippers are up by six now...106-100
Blake Griffin 3, followed by a Chris Paul 3. Clippers 106, Blazers 100 with 5:25 left.
After back-to-back dunks, Wes Johnson is slowly developing into an NBA player for the Lakers now.
Wow, Redick mades a 3 to give the Clippers their first lead of the night?!, 100-98 with 6:38 left....
And in other news, the Ducks lead Oilers, 5-1, and the Lakers are losing
Eric Gordon was at the free throw line and I'm sure New Orleans would rather have Goran Dragic, Kevin Martin and Luis Scola right now.
Don't look now but it's Blazers 98, Clippers 97 with 7:06 left in the game. It looked like the Clippers were ready to wave white flag early.
NOP have opened a 20-point lead thanks to a 52-30 margin since the 1st Q, when LAL led by 2. 31-18 2nd Q, 21-12 edge in the 3rd thus far.
Big Baby tried to fly to make that block on Aldridge and discovered pretty quickly that was not a good idea.
DeAndre Jordan with two straight free throws tonight. He's made his last four free throws. No, that's not an error.
Pelicans are on a 16-8 run to start the third and lead by 19, which works.
New Orleans has been hot all game, shooting 62% after another Davis jumper. They lead 76-57 after the most recent run.
Anthony Davis threw down an alley-oop pretty hard to get to 14 points with his 4 dimes and 3 boards, 2 blocks and steal. NOP up 69-57.
Ryan Kelly already has seven points in the third and earning the respect of his future teammate, Anthony Davis.
Clarkson twice found Kelly early in this 3rd Q for jumpers, getting himself up to 7 assists with his 13 points and 5 boards in 17 minutes.
The last Laker rookie to reach a triple-double? A guy named Magic Johnson, who had 7 of 'em (not bad). Clarkson needs 5 more rebs + 3 asts.
If Anthony Davis was Ryan Kelly's teammate, he wouldn't have to deal with all those pump-fakes which have resulted in: dunk, layup, jumper.
Clippers enter fourth quarter down, 92-85.
Blazers 92, Clippers 85 going into the 4th quarter. Clippers cut Blazers lead to 7 after being down by 19.
Chris Paul inadvertently takes out an official now. This is like a WWE PPV. Totally expecting Ballmer and Allen to get involved ringside.
Now there's a ref on the ground. What's going on?!
Camera just showed Big Baby and Kaman laughing together. What?
I would think the shove would have to be much harder to get BIg Baby onto the ground. Either that was a flop or Aldridge is real real strong
Fans letting Chris Paul have it as he takes technical foul free throws.
Chris Kaman should've done this to Chris Paul instead of pushing him. http://t.co/clsLNAoN6L
What a crazy sequence of events. Kaman gets flagrant 1. Should be ejected for that shove of CP3.
Flagrant foul on Chris Kaman. Two shots and the ball for the Clippers.
Flagrant foul on Kaman
Big Baby might get a fine for flopping after already having been warned this season.
Hedo shoved Lillard, who looked like he wanted a word with Paul. Good times.
Sign in the Moda Center crowd: RIP City >> Flop City.
Yes, Big Baby flopped big time on the fall but Aldridge did push him.
Instant replay shows Kaman pushing Paul in the back out bounds. Portland fans go crazy
Kaman shoved CP. Aldridge shoved Baby.
Kaman is just incredulous that it’s against the rules to shove someone in the back.
Chris Kaman pushed Chris Paul out of bounds. Big Baby came to his defense and Aldridge pushed him down. Refs are now huddling.
Ruling on floor is foul on Kaman. Under review.
Oooh there was just a skirmish...
Chris Kaman pushes Chris Paul onto baseline and Paul rushes over to shove Kaman.
Blazers quickly push the lead back up to 14 after the Clippers cut it to 5. Doc is putting the reserves in which means this could get ugly.
Lakers outscored 31-18 in second quarter... most of it with Clarkson on the bench. He finishes half with 13-5-5. Lakers down 60-49.
Wes Johnson can make jumpers with the help of the top of the backboard.
Make that 2 straight 3's for Anderson, then B2B pretty drives for Clarkson (13/5/5) and Tyreke Evans (12/4/2). NOP up 60-49 at halftime.
Chris Paul lob to DeAndre Jordan for the reverse dunk followed by a Chris Paul three. Blazers 75, Clippers 70 in the 3rd quarter amazingly.
Ryan Anderson, back after 18 games out due to injury, hit his 1st 3 of the game to give NOP a 55-47 lead late in the 2nd Q.
WAYN3 3LLINGTON x 2.
Jordan Clarkson checks back in at the 2:22 mark of the 2nd Q, his first action since playing all 12 1st Q minutes. 11-5-5 so far.
Tarik Black is 6 for 6 towards his 12 points (2 short of a career high), mostly coming on dunks. NOP leads 50-44, meanwhile.
After that awful pass by Jordan Hill, a fan behind me tries to get the chant going: “Where is Kobe?”
Midway through 2, Lakers trail 45-40 as Jordan Clarkson has 11/5/5.
One thing to appreciate watching this Lakers team: they don't whine or complain much. Rubs off from Byron Scott.
Anthony Davis, as usual, is putting up stats across the box score: 8 points, 3 boards, 3 assists, 1 block, 1 steal. Has NOP up 43-37.
Pelicans are on a 14-4 run and lead by eight, which works for the Lakers.
Pelicans have outscored Lakers 12-4 with Jordan Clarkson on the bench.
Both teams continue to shoot the ball well, NOP at 62.5% and LAL at 58.3% as the Pelicans lead 37-35. Nine lead changes already.
Ryan Anderson missed 19 games and still blows by Carlos Boozer and dunks on Jordan Hill. Lolz.
