Robert Sacre with a push in the back and complains to the ref. On the bench, Carlos Boozer proudly smiles.
Struggle so real in Lakers studio http://t.co/Ybmoe7DfzP
"This is fun to watch" - No One.
Jonas Valanciunas' elbow slammed onto the floor and now, mine hurts.
Clippers start fourth quarter with lineup of Spencer Hawes, Hedo Turkoglu, Austin Rivers, Glen Davis and Jordan Hamilton.
Toronto took a 61-57 lead on a 3 from Vasquez, capping a quick 7-0 Raptors run. Valanciunas leads 'em with 17 points on 7 of 11 FG's.
Midway through 3, Lakers trail 61-57 as Jordan Clarkson has 12 points.
Clippers go into fourth quarter with a 94-68 lead over 76ers.
Terrence Ross has 10 points in the quarter, but Raptors only lead by one.
Will Clippers' lead over 76ers, now at 26 points, be enough to rest starters for all of fourth quarter?
After starting the game 0 for 3, Terrence Ross hit shots on 3 straight possessions, including 2 triples. Kelly's 1st 3 answered: LAL up 3.
DeAndre Jordan makes one of two free throws to extend Clippers' lead to 93-67 with 1:31 left in third quarter.
R. KELLY BELIEVES HE CAN FLY.
STOP HACKING DEANDRE JORDAN ON BEHALF OF ALL MANKIND.
Well, two minutes into the second half, both teams refuse to score as Lakers still lead 50-46.
Jordan Hamilton said he would be checking for updates of little brother Isaac during UCLA-Gonzaga but not sure he wants them.
The crowds at MSG and Wells Fargo Center have thoroughly enjoyed DeAndre Jordan's dunks.
Clippers back up relatively comfortably again, holding an 88-66 lead over 76ers.
76ers have pulled to within 73-62 after Richard Mbah a Moute makes a three-pointer.
Matt Barnes alert
LAL takes a 48-46 lead into halftime behind 10 points apiece from Clarkson and Lin, despite shooting just 39%. They held a 27-17 glass edge.
Wes Johnson was wide open for a three, but Jordan Clarkson drove to the basket instead. Smart decision.
Jeremy Lin and Ed Davis have more chemistry than Drake and Rihanna.
Apparently Draymond Green has started a "Cool Story, Glenn" line of T-shirts. Seriously.
Jordan Clarkson just joined Jeremy Lin in double figures with a transition hoop. LAL lead 46-44 after Johnson added a jumper.
The Clippers, who led by as much as 19 points over the 76ers, only take an eight-point lead to half, 62-54.
I wanted the Lakers to sign James Johnson in 2013, but instead, they signed Wes Johnson. Twice.
DeMar DeRozan is 0 for 4 (2 for 4 at the line) for Toronto, who are missing All-Star PG Kyle Lowry (back). LAL lead 38-36 at 4:33 o/t 2nd.
Midway through 2, Lakers lead 36-34 after Robert Shaqcre's dunk.
ROBERT SACRE WITH NO REGARD FOR HUMAN LIFE.
When games aren't entertaining like this one, I just watch Robert Sacre.
A guy just hit a halfcourt shot at the Sixers game. His prize? Season tickets for next season. Hey, you win some, you lose some.
I've been impressed with Tarik Black this entire season. He's definitely earned the right to wear D.J. Mbenga's old number (28).
Halftime: Clippers 62, Sixers 54. The Clippers were up by as many as 19 in the first half.
Robert Sacre heads to the bench, but played some quality minutes there. 25 percent shooting and one turnover.
That would have been goaltending on Matt Barnes if this were the NCAA tournament.
Blake Griffin foul will allow 76ers to potentially cut this thing to single digits.
76ers are Not The Knicks, apparently.
76ers are holding fan appreciation night Monday against Lakers. Sort of like every football team scheduling patsies for homecoming.
76ers are using hack-a-DeAndre Jordan and it's kinda, sorta working. They're now down only 12 late in the second quarter.
After leading by as much as 10, Lakers only lead by three now. Yeah, consistently inconsistent.
Toronto went on a 7-0 run (including the 3 Williams FT's late in the 1st) to cut LAL's lead to 3. Currently at 26-23. Valanciunas has 8.
Toronto missed its final 7 shots of the 1st Q, but did get 3 FT's from Lou Williams after he drew Lin's foul to cut LAL's lead to 7 after 1.
No video tribute for Dr. J but they caught him eating in a suite. http://t.co/e0P0uSl9Tr
34.5 seconds left in the first, Lakers are on an 8-0 run and lead by 10.
LAL are outplaying Toronto on both ends right now, leading to a 24-14 lead. Lin has 10 points, six other guys at least two points.
LAKERS LEAD BY 10.
Doc Rivers on his alleged stomach illness during the Knicks game: "I think it was something Woody put in my drink."
Loudest 76ers crowd has been all night was for a DeAndre Jordan airballed free throw.
Ed Davis checks in against his former team at the 2:55 mark. Dwane Casey said he's grown in confidence and impact around the rim.
A slow shooting start for Johnson (0 for 5) has LAL at just 6 for 18 overall, yet they lead 16-14 with Toronto committing 3 TO's.
Midway through 1, Lakers lead 16-11 as Jeremy Lin has eight points.
Jeremy Lin's playing very loose and confident of late, amassing half of LAL's points after hitting his 2nd 3-pointer. LAL up 16-11 early.
J3R3MY LIN x 2.
I still remember Amir Johnson's career game in Kobe Bryant's return from Achilles rupture two years ago.
Tarik Black's activity inside (5 boards in 5 minutes) led to an open J for Ryan Kelly, which he hit to put LAL up 13-9 at the 6:46 mark.
"Like you went to Yale, but you probably went to Harvard" - Drake after Jeremy Lin scores five straight points, probably. 9-6, Lakers.
""Runnin' through the 6 with my woes" - Jordan Clarkson with back-to-back baskets as Lakers take a 4-2 lead.
Jordan Clarkson, who's scored 30 and then 20 points in his last 2 games, has LAL's first two buckets in the opening minutes in Toronto.
The Clippers are laughing as they give Spencer Hawes a standing ovation after his video tribute. http://t.co/1zt4XKQdLp
Those Raptors uniforms >>>
Glen Davis just drove and scored on Nerlens Noel, the most athletic player on the floor. The surprises just keep coming.
The Sixers thank Spencer Hawes. http://t.co/qclghgcLez
"THANK YOU SPENCER HAWES!" message is posted on scoreboard and the former 76er raises his arm and smiles.
Spencer Hawes video tribute at Wells Fargo Center!!! I don't believe what I just saw.
Clippers hold a 34-20 lead over 76ers at end of first quarter. That's bigger than their first-quarter lead over Knicks.
Luc Mbah a Moute with 5 quick points, treating the Clippers like they're 2006 Gonzaga.
DeAndre Jordan followed putback dunk with one off a Chris Paul lob. Clippers up, 22-11.
Jeremy Lin's playing tonight; he'd been a question mark nursing an illness. He'll start next to Jordan Clarkson again.
Clippers up 13-4 early over 76ers.
Lakers and Knicks probably have the classiest game-night atmospheres in NBA. 76ers? Not so much.
Nate Robinson cannot be with Clippers at 76ers game since he's technically not under contract so he's watching from team hotel.
Austin Rivers on Blake Griffin vid: " If people can’t understand that was a joke, then I can’t help them. They have to be smarter than that.
Byron just compared Clarkson to Russell Westbrook. Sort of. Said Clarkson "nowhere near" Westbrook as a player but has similar athleticism.
Get well soon, Kevin Durant.
Bound to be a lot of speculation surrounding Kevin Durant’s future after these setbacks & Russell Westbrook’s MVP-caliber season.
Kevin Durant will be out for 4-6 months following foot surgery. Durant under contract for 1 more yr w/ OKC. Free agent in summer of 2016.
Love this Ali poster. http://t.co/mDFpEyVSbT
