Matt Barnes: "There are things I do that sometimes deserve a tech. Saying, ‘He wasn’t shooting,’ that’s not a technical foul."

Gary Lee

Midway through 4, Lakers lead 91-88 as Jeremy Lin and Wayne Ellington are playing well. Check out the highlights. lakersnation.com/los-angeles-la…

Mike Trudell

More Lin penetration into the paint got Ellington another 3 (he's 3 for 3 from distance) and the Lakers cap a 12-2 run to go up 91-88.

Ben Bolch

Matt Barnes on technicals: "I mean, this is just getting out of control, man. They’re just whistle-happy."

Gary Lee

LAKERS LEAD. 9-0 RUN.

Ben Bolch

Doc Rivers said he might shake up second unit and try different players.

Mike Trudell

Better from Lin tonight: 4 of 4 FG's for 10 points w/4 assists and 5 boards in 15 min. Just fed Boozer, then scored himself to tie the game.

Gary Lee

LINSANITY HAS ARRIVED.

Ben Bolch

Matt Barnes: "I got a tech for saying, ‘He’s not shooting the ball.’ Turk got a tech for saying, ‘That’s not a foul.’ "

Gary Lee

Well, Jordan's sick... RT @esbl38avnor65: @Gary Lee Jordan Hill is a shame as defense, no energy, not desire to play, ugly body languaje

Mike Trudell

One of Swaggy's 3's was changed to a 2 during the last time out. LAL deficit is 88-84 after Collison/Boozer exchange hoops.

Mike Bresnahan

Adding insult to ejection: Nick Young's three-pointer has been changed to a two-pointer after refs looked at courtside replays.

Bill Oram

Things keep getting worse for Nick Young: The 3 he hit moments before getting tossed has been downgraded to a 2. #sadswag

Beto Duran

After a 3, Depeche Mode "Cant Get Enough" played by Lakers organist @DieterRuehle

Janis Carr

Maybe Lakers aren't dead. Ellington's 3 pulls them back to within three, 86-83.

Gary Lee

After Wayne Ellington's three, the Lakers only trail 86-83 with 9:21 remaining in the game. Check out the highlights. lakersnation.com/los-angeles-la…

Mike Trudell

Lin's dribble penetration got Ellington an open 3, which he knocked down, LAL's 10th to cut OKC's lead to 3. LAL at 49.2% FG's, 43.5% 3's.

Ben Bolch

Doc Rivers on second-unit's defense: "I mean, it was awful. I mean, first half, honest to God, I was looking for a write-in ballot for Nate.

Mike Trudell

OKC was up 70-68 when Westbrook went out … Thunder's bench built an 86-80 lead as he returns w/9:49 to play. Russ has 25 and 9 already.

Janis Carr

Not so swaggy RT @Baxter Holmes: The play that led to Nick Young being ejected: vine.co/v/OXWUvT36QDu

Gary Lee

Jeremy Lin with the crossover and jumper on Bobby Shmurda. That's all.

Janis Carr

Lakers seem to be self-destructing

Gary Lee

ROBERT SACRE WITH THE THUNDEROUS DUNK, BUT IT DOESN'T COUNT.

Mike Trudell

Young's elbow made contact with Adams, who missed both of the flagrant FT's. LAL trail 82-76, Young gone w/11 points in 15 minutes.

Gary Lee

BALL DON'T LIE, STEVEN ADAMS.

Kevin Ding

Young ejected, obviously. Not the first time Adams has irritated an opponent. ... OKC 82, LAL 76 with 11:24 left.

Gary Lee

Nick Young has been ejected.

Mike Bresnahan

Nick Young has been ejected from the game for delivering a forearm to the throat of OKC center Steven Adams.

Ryan Ward

Nick Young has been ejected. Assessed a flagrant 2.

Bill Oram

Nick Young hit with a flagrant 2 and has been ejected.

Gary Lee

Nick Young with the forearm to Steve Adams' throat and Joey Crawford is one of the refs.

Mike Trudell

Nick Young is going to be ejected for a flagrant 2 foul.

Bill Oram

Replay shows Nick Young caught Steven Adams in the throat with a forearm. This may not end well for Nick.

Mike Trudell

After hitting his 3rd triple of the night, Swaggy P didn't like some Steven Adams contact and shoved him off. Refs reviewing the play.

Gary Lee

FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!

Kevin Ding

Nick Young with the forearm to Steven Adams' throat...

Bill Oram

That Morrow 3 capped a 12-3 run for the Thunder. That Boozer pass, though...

Beto Duran

Lakers swaggyp1 going Jordan tonight (pic by jdeez) instagram.com/p/w0RLXKnl8e/

Gary Lee

Box score says Carlos Boozer has two assists, but he actually has three now.

Janis Carr

That was a sad way to end the quarter. Boozer creates turnover with bad outlet pass as OKC's Morrow hits a 3. #painful

Gary Lee

At the end of 3, Lakers trail 82-73 as Boozer passed the ball to Morrow who made the three. Check the highlights. lakersnation.com/los-angeles-la…

Mike Trudell

That one hurts LAL. Boozer's turnover in the final second turned directly into a Morrow 3, and OKC leads 82-73 into the 4th Q.

Gary Lee

CARLOS BOOZER PASSES THE BALL IN THE FINAL SECONDS OF THE THIRD QUARTER TO ANTHONY MORROW WHO MAKES THE THREE.

Bill Oram

Carlos Boozer just giving points to the Thunder there.

Mike Trudell

Reggie Jackson went for 5 straight points to give LAL its biggest deficit, but a #Swaggy3 has LAL back within 6.

Gary Lee

Lakers didn't get Rajon Rondo, but keep an eye on Reggie Jackson. He's a restricted free agent this summer and looking for a starting job.

Mike Trudell

To Roberson's credit, after air-balling a FT, he came back and hit a 3 on the next trip. LAL down 73-70, 1:35 in the 3rd.

Gary Lee

"AND ONE" - Carlos Boozer as his son, Robert Sacre cheers from the bench.

Mike Trudell

* @John Ireland on @ESPNLA710: "That might be the worst free throw I've ever seen!" OKC's Andre Roberson air balled the 1st, missed the 2nd.

Mike Trudell

Carlos Boozer hasn't had many looks tonight, just 1 for 3 in his 14 minutes. He came in averaging 15.2 ppg in 5 games off the bench.

Gary Lee

You looked at my screen, Corey. I was going to tweet this. RT @TheeCoreyH: Wes Johnson making fadeaways…Price making threes…Ed making FTs

Mike Trudell

Kobe's 7th assist gets Wesley Johnson his 1st triple, and LAL's 7th in 19 attempts, to tie the game at 68 late in the 3rd.

Arash Markazi

Kobe's family watching him courtside tonight. @ Staples Center instagram.com/p/w0Pen_QC11/

Gary Lee

Russell Westbrook is not nice.

Gary Lee

Wes Johnson with the alley-oop pass to Ed Davis for the dunk. RT @rustbettinger30: @Gary Lee is that Wes Johnson or Magic Johnson?

Laker Girls

Enjoying tonight's halftime performance by The Amazing Sladek! -Savanah #LGLivin http://t.co/UiqPwJTnS7

Mike Trudell

Kobe's been off tonight, now 2 for 10 after consecutive misses, though he does have 6 assists. LAL down 64-63 after an Ed Davis dunk.

Gary Lee

WHAT A BLOCK BY ED DAVIS.

Gary Lee

Midway through 3, Lakers trail 64-61 as three players are in double figures and Kobe has seven. Check the highlights. lakersnation.com/los-angeles-la…

Gary Lee

"You're the best point guard in the NBA, not Ronnie Price" - Kevin Durant to Russell Westbrook, probably.

Gary Lee

Wes Johnson 26.5 --> Activated.

Mike Trudell

Jordan Hill, who missed the last 2 days of practice w/an upper respiratory infection, has been a bit off at 2 for 6 FG's w/only 2 boards.

Gary Lee

Lakers are on a 1-0 run to start the second half as they trail 52-51.

Mike Trudell

You may see a bigger or longer body (possibly Wesley Johnson) on Westbrook as the game goes on. LAL want to take away his post ups.

Ben Bolch

Clippers had 3 chances to tie on three-pointers on final possession but Jamal Crawford, J.J. Redick and CP3 all miss. Nuggets win, 109-106.

Melissa Rohlin

Final: Denver 109, Clippers 106.

Ben Bolch

Clippers were peeved that Matt Barnes was late coming over to timeout huddle while talking to refs.

Bill Oram

The Amazing Sladek, an NBA halftime staple, is following us. Did Lakers/Pacers in Indy, here tonight. Sunday in Sacramento next?

Gary Lee

At the end of 2, Lakers trail 52-50 as Russell Westbrook made 13 free-throws. Check out the first half highlights. lakersnation.com/los-angeles-la…

Mike Trudell

After leading by as many as 11, LAL had trouble limiting Westbrook (21 points, 13 at the line) and trail 52-50 as a result.

Ben Bolch

Ultimate turnoff. MT @Kevin Ding Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis on Kiss Cam at Staples Center for 2016 free agent Kevin Durant's entertainment

Bill Oram

Kobe's first field goal comes iwth 1:54 left in the first half. Lakers up 48-46

Mike Trudell

Kobe's been passing all half (game-high 5 assists) but just hit his 1st FG, a turnaround J in the paint.

Bill Oram

Russell Westbrook just made his 13th free throw of the first half, giving him 17 points.

Mike Trudell

Crowd was pleased with an Ashton Kutcher-Mila Kunis kiss on the Kiss Cam. Meanwhile, Westbrook tied it at 44. 13 of his 17 pts at the line.

Kevin Ding

Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis on the Kiss Cam at Lakers home game for 2016 free agent Kevin Durant's entertainment.

Ben Bolch

Doc Rivers calls timeout down 107-100 with 1:08 left. Drawing up a seven-point play?

Mike Trudell

Westbrook just continues to force his way into the paint, and has drawn a number of fouls, FT attempts 12 and 13 coming out of a time out.

Mike Trudell

If a foul is called and the player (Jordan Hill) hits both FT's after a block attempt, you can't do the Dikembe finger shake, Ibaka. Right?

Gary Lee

Reggie Jackson's three ties the game at 42 because Ronnie Price has returned to the old Ronnie Price.

Mike Trudell

Reggie Jackson's heating up, hitting his 2nd 3 to tie the game up at 42. LAL had led by as many as 11.

Kevin Ding

Pau/Bulls win at MEM. MT @KC Johnson: Noah: "Pau told us yesterday this game meant a lot for him. That was cool. I like that sentimental sh*t."

Bill Oram

Tie game after that Reggie Jackson 3. 42-42. Lakers led by as many as 11.

Bill Oram

At 5:05 mark of second quarter, Kobe still scoreless. That should change as he heads to the line here.

Mike Trudell

OKC's been paying Kobe extra attention, limiting him to 0 points (0 for 3 FG's) w/3 assists, but giving his teammates plenty of open shots.

Ryan Ward

OKC starting to turn it on now. Cut the lead to 4 w/ 5:19 left in the half. Westbrook leads the Thunder with 13 points.

Gary Lee

Midway through 2, Lakers lead 38-34 as the Thunder are making a run. Ronnie Price has 14, so check the highlights. lakersnation.com/los-angeles-la…

Gary Lee

BOBBY SHMURDA DUNK.

Bill Oram

A lot of talk at practice yesterday about Lakers seemingly being able to find focus and effort for top opponents. Lead OKC (no KD) 38-32.

Janis Carr

Let me guess...airball?

Gary Lee

THIS = Ronnie Price. RT @Daniel_Onas: @Gary Lee Just ridiculous how we went from Bynum and Gasol to THIS within 3 years. Unbelievable.

Mike Trudell

Westbrook hasn't had his shot going, but he's been at the line repeatedly, already 9 for 9 to keep OKC within 6 at 38-32.

Ben Bolch

Clippers get a sixth technical foul of fourth quarter with a delay of game.
