Collison collides into Price, not getting up yet.

Sorry for delay on last tweet... Wifi comes and goes at will.

Kobe starting to have his way with Ben McLemore. Just backed him down in the post for an easy two. Kobe has 7 here in the third, 21 total.

Mike Trudell

Kobe found his legs at halftime. He has 9 of his 21 points in the 1st 6 minutes of this 3rd Q, a steal and layup putting LAL up 13.

Gary Lee

Midway through 3, Lakers have their biggest lead of the game as Kobe has seven points in the quarter. Highlights. lakersnation.com/los-angeles-la…

Mike Trudell

LAL rolling all of a sudden, with three consecutive hoops from Kobe-Swaggy P-Kobe again opening up a 77-66 lead. Bryant has 21, Young 14.

Janis Carr

Kobe must have had a Red Bull or V-8 at halftime. He's 5 of 16 now and seemingly in control

Gary Lee

According to sources close to the situation, Kobe went to Germany at halftime.

Mike Trudell

Ed Davis continues to work the O glass, grabbing his 4th and LAL's 12th board to put back Kobe's miss. LAL now up 73-66 after Kobe's made J.

Gary Lee

"NO EASY BASKETS" - Wes Johnson after preventing a dunk.

Mike Trudell

LAL are bringing occasional double teams towards Cousins, the game plan to mix it up. He's up to 19 points (5 of 13 FG's, 9 of 11 FT's).

Kamenetzky Brothers

If the NBA adopted four-pointers, that shot by Kobe still would be considered a long one. AK

Mike Trudell

Kobe just beat the shot clock buzzer with a 30-foot pull-up 3 (he's now 3 for 3 from 3, 1 for 11 from 2, 6 of 6 at the FT line). He has 17.

Gary Lee

Rudy Gay missed an uncontested dunk as Kobe Bryant ran past him. Best defense so far this season.

Mike Trudell

LAL called a Ronnie Price post up of Darren Collison, and Price, strong as a bull, scored on a J off glass. LAL up 62-56 early in 3rd.

Gary Lee

Second half is underway and happy birthday, @SamuelLJackson. #LakersBasketball

Gary Lee

Let's win this for Samuel L. Jackson. RT @Magic Johnson: Happy birthday to my boy and one of the best actors in the business @SamuelLJackson!

Ben Bolch

Spurs have already announced Tony Parker, Kawhi Leonard out for game against Clippers on Monday.

Gary Lee

26 as Kobe's last jump shot was a three, not two. RT @E_LivingLarge: @Gary Lee 25 or 35?

Bill Oram

Walking off at halftime, Vlade Divac fist bumped fan who yellow, “Always a Laker, baby,” much to the chagrin of his Kings-employee handler

Mike Trudell

Kobe's long J in the corner was changed from a 2 to a 3, so LAL get an extra point and lead 60-52 at the break. Lakers 7 of 10 from 3.

Gary Lee

Combine for 26 points*

Gary Lee

At the end of 2, Lakers lead 59-52 as Kobe Bryant and Nick Young combine for 35 points. Check out the highlights. lakersnation.com/los-angeles-la…

Mike Trudell

LAL take a 59-52 lead into halftime thanks to a 16-4 run to close the quarter. Kobe's up to 13 points, and Young had 12 in 11 minutes.

Mike Bresnahan

Kobe now 3 for 13. Lakers lead Sacramento by seven at halftime. Go figure.

Gary Lee

I thought Kobe hurt his wrist after falling down, but he's made two free throws and a three since as the Lakers lead 56-51.

Kamenetzky Brothers

This feels like one of those games where it's not a matter of "if" Kobe will get a technical, but "when." AK

Mike Trudell

Despite shooting 41.9% and turning it over 8 times (Kings 47.4 and 5), LAL lead 51-50 thanks to 11 offensive boards in the half.

Gary Lee

Well, Wes Johnson's dunk attempt didn't even hit the rim. See you on #ShaqtinAFool, Wes.

Mike Trudell

Kobe just motioned for an illegal defense on the Kings … and the ref agreed. Bryant gets the technical FT to put LAL up 49-48.

Gary Lee

Vlade Divac is at the game today and I just want to thank him for being good enough to be traded for Kobe and the assist to Robert Horry.

Janis Carr

Kobe shooting .181 (2 for 11) and has five turnovers. More fatigue?

Mike Trudell

Kobe's fuming on the bench during a T.O.. He hasn't gotten the benefit of the doubt on a few calls, but is nonetheless 2 for 11 w/5 TO's.

Gary Lee

I'm not sure why Ronnie Price is playing down to the level of the competition. Had 14 points against Westbrook, but only 3 against Collison.

Gary Lee

Midway through 2, it's all tied up at 41. Bench is playing well as Nick Young has 12 points. Check the highlights. lakersnation.com/los-angeles-la…

Mike Trudell

Cousins: "They can't guard me." He's up to 13 points in 13 minutes. Meanwhile, McLemore is hurting LAL in transition w/B2B hoops. 41-all.

Gary Lee

Wayne Ellington has been very consistent with his jumper, but I don't know why he doesn't get more minutes. Actually, I do.

Mike Trudell

LAL have it going from 3, Wayne Ellington (3 triples on Friday) hitting the 5th in 7 attempts. He added 1 of 2 FT's to put LAL up 39-35.

Gary Lee

Derrick Williams scores, but reminds me too much of Wiz Khalifa.

Mike Trudell

Another #Swaggy3, and Nick Young's hot off the bench, now 4 for 6 overall for 12 points in 10 minutes to tie the game at 35.

Gary Lee

What a pass from Jeremy Lin to Carlos Boozer, who surprisingly didn't miss the layup. #Progress

Mike Trudell

LAL's bench has brought them back into this one, from down 10 in the 1st Q to a 32-31 lead after Lin found Boozer for a deuce. 9-2 LAL run.

Gary Lee

After trailing by 10 early, the Lakers realized they were playing at 3:00 PM today and now lead by one.

Mike Trudell

My seat is right in front of LAL's gum stash, which allows me to tell you that Kobe just requested two pieces of Double Bubble (watermelon).

Gary Lee

Robert Sacre just picked up three fouls in five minutes and somewhere out there, Travis Knight is smiling.

Mike Trudell

Kobe started slowly, but hit a 3 and some FT's in the final minutes of the 1st to score 8 of LAL's final 12. Cut Kings lead from 10 to 3.

Mike Trudell

Nick Young opens the 2nd Q with a #Swaggy3, then his 2nd driving layup of the game to reach 9 quick points and get LAL within 1 at 29-28.

Gary Lee

Yeah, I don't know. RT @BigInDaStreetz: @Gary Lee wait... Why is this game on at 3pm 2day? Lol

Gary Lee

At the end of 1, Lakers trail 26-23 as Kobe Bryant leads all scorers with eight points. Check out the highlights. lakersnation.com/los-angeles-la…

Gary Lee

Nice offensive rebound by Robert Sacre that led to a Nick Young jumper. Lakers still trail 24-21 late in the first quarter.

Gary Lee

Well, it appears Kobe is back to playing entire quarters again and yeah, I wonder why he doesn't have his legs late in games.

Gary Lee

"GRAB IT" - Carlos Boozer.

Gary Lee

Lakers decided to double DeMarcus Cousins on the catch, but gave up a wide open three to Darren Collison, the #FutureNet. Possibly.

Bill Oram

Kobe just 1-of-5 to start here in Sacramento. Lakers trailing 22-12 for your matinee viewing pleasure.

Gary Lee

Good defense by Nick Young on Rudy Gay these last two possessions and forces a technical foul. #DPOY

Mike Trudell

Nick Young's first impact is no defense, as he strips the ball from Rudy Gay. Meanwhile, Kobe's 1st FG cuts SAC's lead to 17-11.

Gary Lee

No one airballs better than Kobe.

Mike Trudell

During the time out, the Kings surprised a mom at center court with her soldier son returning from active duty. Always cool to see that.

Gary Lee

Midway through 1, Lakers trail 15-7 to the Kings as they have more turnovers than field goals. Check the highlights. lakersnation.com/los-angeles-la…

Gary Lee

Lakers have been very consistent at turning the ball over. They already have five turnovers in the first five minutes.

Mike Trudell

Kobe has 3 of LAL's 5 early turnovers, and Boogie is starting to roll on the other end, with 6 points in a 13-7 SAC lead early.

Gary Lee

DeMarcus Cousins is good. #Analysis

Mike Trudell

Double teaming Kobe hurts Sacramento early, as Bryant found Price for a wide-open 3 that tied it at 7. Price had 4 1st Q 3's vs. OKC.

Gary Lee

Hey, Lakers have a chance. MT @FX_Rivera: Byron Scott has the best record of any player in NBA history playing at Sacramento: (43-6, .878)

Mike Trudell

The Kings have hit 3 straight shots, while LAL got hoops from Johnson and Davis and thus trail 7-4. Davis had a season-high 18 on Friday.

Gary Lee

Wes Johnson - 0, Darren Collison - 3.

Mike Trudell

Sloppy 3 p.m. start for both teams, a collective 0 for 4, with the Lakers turning it over twice and SAC once.

Gary Lee

Kobe was doubled, still took the first shot of the game, and missed.

Gary Lee

If you missed this earlier, Nick Young won't be suspended for his altercation with Steve Adams and will play today. lakersnation.com/lakers-news-ni…

Mike Trudell

"How Do U Want It" playing during pregame warm ups in Sacramento, which certainly has me ready to sideline report/tweet. #2pac

Gary Lee

#LakersBasketball, Game 27. http://t.co/kne6tMz8T2

Mike Trudell

Kobe's 5.0 assists/game lead LAL. RT @bearinvegas: @Mike Trudell When (Kobe's) legs aren't there he should start passing the damn ball.

Bill Oram

If Kobe gets carried away and tries to beat Sacramento all on his own today I guess you could call that "one-on-four-on-five."

Mike Trudell

Kobe said after Friday's game that his legs have been there some days, and not on others. We'll see if he's got it today. Tip off coming up.

LAL expect Nick Young to be available off the bench today. No suspension was announced by the league for his flagrant 2 PF last game.

Um $2K automatic after flagrant 2. "@Mark Medina: avoiding suspension "I'm a nice guy man. Like I said before, Swaggy P don't get fined!"

Nick Young on avoiding suspension: "I'm a nice guy, man. I've said before, Swaggy P doesn't get fined!" (He did last season...once.)

Bill Oram

Cool scene pregame in Sacramento: Carlos Boozer chatting with Spurs scout Trajan Langdon. The two pioneering Alaskan hoopers.

Ben Bolch

Anyone find a laptop power cord at Staples Center last night after Clippers game? Ugh.

Gary Lee

Nick Young won’t be suspended for his altercation with Steven Adams and will play today against the Sacramento Kings. lakersnation.com/lakers-news-ni…

Mike Bresnahan

Looks like Nick Young won't be suspended. Lakers dodged one there. Coming up on 90 mins until tip-off vs. Sacramento.

Bill Oram

Ty Corbin media availability. It’s like being home again. He answers second question with, “It is what it is.”

Gary Lee

For those of you wondering, there’s been no word if Nick Young will be suspended for today’s game against the Kings.

Still no word from NBA if Nick Young will be suspended for today’s game in Sac after elbowing Steven Adams in the throat. Tipoff in 4 hours
