With Rajon Rondo traded to the Mavs and Reggie Jackson a restricted free agent, Goran Dragic is perhaps the most realistic option for LA.

Arash Markazi

Halftime: Kentucky 41, UCLA 7. The Bruins were 3 for 37 (8.1%) in the first half.

Gary Lee

Latest report has Goran Dragic opting out of his contract with the Suns and having an “open” free agency this upcoming summer.

Remember last week when the Lakers made 5 of 41 shots in the first half? If you thought that was bad, turn on the UCLA game #ithappens

Arash Markazi

Kentucky 33, UCLA 4 with 5:30 left in the first half and "mercy rule" was mentioned more than once on the CBS broadcast.

Mike Bresnahan

Byron still unhappy that Young got ejected last night: “I gave him some words and told him if it happens again what would happen to him.”

Only one stadium (capable of housing two teams) would be built in L.A. so the number of options doesn't really matter as long as one works.

Arash Markazi

The two hottest stadium sites now mentioned for a possible LA NFL team are Inglewood (Hollywood Park site) and Carson (Victoria Park site).

Arash Markazi

L.A. could easily go from two "shovel ready" stadium sites for an NFL team to none by next year. Leaving L.A., once again, at square one.

Arash Markazi

No one talks about the City of Industry site anymore but they're also looking at Plan B options (industrial-commercial) now for their site.

Arash Markazi

AEG basically told the city they'd make one more push for the NFL and Farmers Field and if it didn't work out in 6 months go to Plan B.

Arash Markazi

AEG's plans include the possibility of an additional 750-room hotel adjacent to the Convention Center if Farmers Field plans fall through.

Arash Markazi

AEG has committed to spend up to $600,000 by April to commission designs for a proposed alternative plan for a convention center expansion.

Arash Markazi

This might mean the end of Farmers Field. AEG's extension with the city for stadium plans expire in April. They could get another extension.

Mike Trudell

Bryant said there are certain nights he's felt good, others like tonight where he hasn't had his legs. Will be an ongoing battle.

Mike Trudell

Kobe's understandably frustrated having to pace and figure out his body like this in Year 19. Tough to know how much/little to practice.

Good luck getting a pass from Kobe now RT @shahanLA: "I like game winners too. I would love to hit that shot." Jeremy Lin

Ryan Ward

Ed Davis on Kobe’s last shot: “Best closer in the game and he just missed the shot.”

Mike Trudell

One way to limit minutes is simply taking Bryant out earlier in the 1st and 3rd Q's to get him down to 30-32 instead of 34-36. We'll see.

Janis Carr

Boozer on TWC: "Kobe makes that shot 9 of 10 times.... we would do it again."

Mike Trudell

Asked Scott if limiting Bryant's minutes further in games was possible. He's going to "take it day by day" in continual discussion w/Kobe.

Mike Trudell

Scott said Kobe wanted to compete in Wednesday's practice and "get guys going." Wonders in hindsight if that was a bit too much on his legs.

Ryan Ward

Carlos Boozer on Ed Davis performance: “Great game, man. He played phenomenal.”

Mike Trudell

Scott said Bryant is fatigued in general, and certainly looked tired tonight. 3 for 15 FG's in his nearly 35 minutes.

Ryan Ward

Byron Scott on Nick Young ejection: “He’s too valuable to overreact and get kicked out of the game”

Janis Carr

Scott said Kobe was "tired ... oveall fatigued." Guess he wont practice tomorrow

Mike Trudell

Scott said that's how Steven Adams is, trying to irritate you, and Nick Young has to be more controlled in his reaction. Can't do that.

Worthy" We all want Kobe to make that shot ... but tonight he didnt have it." He said Kobe should have given someone else the shot.

Janis Carr

Worthy: "Without Durant, I think this is a game Lakers should have won." #obvious

Gary Lee

Thanks for tuning in tonight, #LakersNation. Follow me on my personal account @DanDuangdao and yeah, Kobe didn't have his legs tonight.

Mike Trudell

Final: OKC 104, LAL 103. Kobe is as displeased as one might expect after missing a potential game-winning jumper from 17 feet.

Gary Lee

INSTANT RECAP: Kobe struggles and misses potential game winner as Lakers lose 104-103 to the Thunder at Staples. lakersnation.com/game-recap-kob…

Kevin Ding

Westbrook (13 of 13 on free throws, 0 of 1 on threes) ruled this game (31 points, 10 assists) with Durant out. OKC up to 13-14.

Janis Carr

Kobe not to the rescue this time. Lakers lose, 104-103

Gary Lee

KOBE MISSES THE GAME WINNER.

Kevin Ding

Kobe (3 of 14 on the night before the play) misses. Lakers lose.

Gary Lee

Lakers are down by one with a chance to win. 6.3 seconds left in the game.

Bill Oram

Lakers have ball, trailing by one, with 6.3 seconds left.

Mike Trudell

LAL ball, down 1, 06.3 to play. Westbrook missed his shot, then took the foul to give on Kobe in transition.

Kevin Ding

Lin stops and hits over Westbrook, who misses at the other end. Lakers' ball with 6.3 seconds left, down by one...

Gary Lee

JEREMY LIN'S JUMPER CUTS THE THUNDERS' LEAD DOWN TO 104-103.

Mike Trudell

LAL got a quick 2 on a pull-up J from Lin, and are looking for a stop as the clock ticks under 20...

Mike Trudell

Reggie Jackson has carried a big load in Durant's absence, up to 25 bench points w/5 assists to help Westbrook's 31 and 10.

Gary Lee

Got ejected. Metta World Peace'd Steven Adams in the throat. RT @brennan_hart7: @Gary Lee why is nick young not in the game?

Bill Oram

Russell Westbrook has 31 points, 10 assists, 5 rebounds and just 1 turnover.

Gary Lee

Russell Westbrook hits the jumper as the Thunder lead 104-101 with 38.2 seconds remaining. Let's get a good shot, please.

Mike Trudell

Kobe was expecting contact going up for a J but didn't get any, and was well off … Westbrook was not, and OKC leads 104-101, 38.2 left.

Kevin Ding

And Kobe doesn't hit the shot. Westbrook hits his. ... OKC 104, LAL 101 with 38.2 seconds left.

Gary Lee

What a bad shot by Kobe there.

Gary Lee

Carlos Boozer pushes the entire Thunder team in the back as Reggie Jackson gives the Thunder the 102-101 lead with 1:05 remaining.

Mike Trudell

Boozer hit with a loose ball foul after Ibaka blocked Ellington's 3 with 1:05 to go. Boozer pushed Jackson, who hit 2 FT's. OKC up 102-101.

Kevin Ding

Byron and Jeremy huddling at the sideline...and they look out to Kobe, who calls the play.

Gary Lee

Lakers are up 101-100.

Gary Lee

Carlos Boozer redeems himself by making a shot over Serge Ibaka, but I'm still laughing.

Mike Trudell

Nice play by Boozer to score over Ibaka after being swatted on the last trip. LAL up 1 with 1:45 left, and the ball after Westbrook's miss.

Gary Lee

Lakers trail 100-99 with 2:13 remaining in the game, but I'm still laughing at Carlos Boozer.

Gary Lee

Good defense by Andre Roberson, but better offense by Kobe Bryant.

Mike Trudell

A tough baseline fadeaway is just Kobe's 3rd FG, first of the 4th Q, but this time Ibaka answers w/a J. Fun one here. OKC up 1, 2:13 to go.
