Mike Trudell

Scott thought the “effort was there, lot of good things on the defensive end.” But … “we missed some wide open looks” + the mistakes.

Ben Bolch

Just had a story retweeted by a long-defunct newspaper. Hope that's not any kind of omen.

Ryan Ward

Byron Scott: “I thought our guys played tonight. Competed.”

Mike Trudell

Byron Scott: “Obviously disappointing … just blew it. Missed free throws, (giving up) offensive rebounds. We made some costly mistakes.”

Ben Bolch

J.J. Redick had two words when asked about a leaner, meaner Marc Gasol: "Contract year."

Gary Lee

Live with Kobe. Die with Kobe.

Janis Carr

Hahahaha RT @asmuniz: @Janis Carr D'Antoni laughing all the way to his creepy, D'Antoni Brother Swingers Basement Apartment.

Janis Carr

AC Green and Worthy say the Lakers stood around watching Kobe too much. What else is new?

Gary Lee

Thanks for tuning in tonight, #LakersNation. Follow me on my personal account @DanDuangdao and yeah, Robert Sacre played well.

Arash Markazi

Tough loss for the Lakers in the short term but better in the long term. #TeamTank #KeepTheTopFivePick

Janis Carr

Worthy: "That was a difficult one to give away....poor execution."

Gary Lee

INSTANT RECAP: Lakers struggle offensively down the stretch as they fall 101-94 to the Nuggets via @TheeCoreyH. lakersnation.com/game-recap-lak…

Janis Carr

Five minutes more only produced another loss. Denver wins, 101-94

Mike Trudell

Final: Nuggets 101, Lakers 94. Kobe finished w/27 but struggled w/shooting in 4th Q, Lin had 17 and 5, Hill 11 and 14, Sacre 13.

Kevin Ding

Lakers lose at home to DEN, fall to 3-11. Start of light stretch on Lakers' schedule. Next: MEM, MIN, TOR, at DET, at WAS, at BOS, NO, SAC.

Arash Markazi

FINAL: Nuggets 101, Lakers 94. The Lakers fall to 3-11. That's not the worst record in the West. That belongs to OKC at 3-12.

Kevin Ding

This feels like the Lakers' Nov. 4 home loss to Phoenix. Winnable in a potential team-building moment, but lost amid dependence on Kobe.

Gary Lee

That should do it. Kobe misses the three and Lakers are still down four with 9.9 seconds left. Nuggets' ball.

Kamenetzky Brothers

Glad they got Kobe an easy look. AK

Ryan Ward

Kobe misses three-point attempt. Game basically in the bag for Nuggets. 9.9 left. DEN ball. 4-point lead.

Mike Trudell

That should do it. Kobe missed a 3, Lawson collected the loose ball. DEN ball, 09.9 left in OT, Nuggets up 98-94.

Gary Lee

Prediction: Nick Young four-point play.

Gary Lee

Yeah, that was a foul and Afflalo makes both free-throws to put the Nuggets back up by four. 18.7 seconds left in overtime.

Ryan Ward

Afflalo puts Nuggets back up by 4 with 18.7 secs left. Foul game.

Mike Trudell

Afflalo hit both FT's with 18.7 seconds left to restore Denver's 4-point lead at 98-94. LAL need a quick score, some FT misses or a T.O.

Gary Lee

Jordan Hill makes both free-throws to cut the deficit to 96-94 with 21.7 remaining. Nuggets' ball after the timeout.

Ryan Ward

Jordan Hill pulls the Lakers to within two. 21.7 left on the clock in OT. Nuggets ball.

Mike Trudell

LAL got a needed turnover and got 2 Jordan Hill FT's at the other end w/21.7 left to cut the DEN lead to 2.

Bill Oram

The Nuggets, channeling David Copperfield, have made Kobe disappear.

Bill Oram

This is how you lose 'er. #Lakers

Mike Trudell

Byron Scott ran a play to get Kobe a post touch, which resulted in his J over Chandler. LAL within 2, until Lawson answered. 96-92, 1 min.

Kamenetzky Brothers

Had basketball existed in the days of Noah, God would have simply sent this game into 5 OT's and not bothered with the flood. BK

Gary Lee

Nuggets get the offensive rebound after the missed free-throw and they now lead by four with 1:28 remaining. Timeout, Lakers.

Mike Trudell

Gallinari went 1 of 2 at the FT line again, but Mozgov grabbed the miss, and Gallo hit a 3 to put DEN up 94-90 w/1:28 left.

Ryan Ward

Kobe ties the game at 90 after hitting two free throws. 2 mins left.

Gary Lee

Ha, no one wants to win this game. It's been tied 17 times already.

Gary Lee

Good defense by Kobe, but better offense by Ty Lawson. It's now tied up at 88 with less than three minutes remaining.

Ryan Ward

Ty Lawson has been on his game tonight. 16 points and 16 assists. Giving Lin all he can handle.

Gary Lee

Jeremy Lin's fadeaway jumper gives the Lakers the 88-86 lead.

Bill Oram

That Lin hoop was the Lakers first bucket since Wesley Johnson's dunk.

Mike Trudell

Jeremy Lin scored over Lawson again to kick off OT, but committed his 5th PF on the other end. 3:30 to play, LAL up 2.

Mike Trudell

This game isn't going to win any FG% awards. LAL at 38.1%, DEN 35.7%. Both teams consistently cold. Defenses have been working hard.

Gary Lee

This. RT @Kamenetzky Brothers: Finally Byron can get Kobe beyond 40 minutes in a way that looks natural. BK

Kamenetzky Brothers

Finally Byron can get Kobe beyond 40 minutes in a way that looks natural. BK

Ryan Ward

Kobe Bryant leads the way for the Lakers with 23 points. Lin with 15. J. Hill 14 boards & 9 points. Wes 12 boards & 7 points.

Mike Trudell

So Kobe's going to have to play 44 minutes if he goes through OT. 39 more in regulation. Hill played 38, Johnson 37, Lawson/Afflalo 37 each.

Ryan Ward

5 mins on the clock. First, and lets hope only, overtime. Kobe leads

Mike Trudell

Overtime, and LAL will go small with Wesley Johnson in at the 4 (Ed Davis fouled out early in the 4th Q). Lin, Kobe, Young, Hill too.

Gary Lee

Nick Young almost makes the shot with 0.5 seconds, but we're now headed to overtime.

Mike Trudell

That would have been a reeeeaaaallly Swaggy walk off interview if Nick Young hit a 3-point buzzer-beater. Instead, a near miss.

Arash Markazi

If that shot had gone in Nick Young would have done his postgame presser across the street on the AMAs stage.

Bill Oram

Overtime. Nick Young misses what turned out to actually be a pretty good deep look.

Ryan Ward

Nick Young heaves it at the buzzer. Close. But off the rim. OVERTIME.

Gary Lee

Gallinari gets called for a travel on the inbounds pass and it's now Lakers' ball with 0.5. Where is Derek Fisher? Asking for a friend.

Janis Carr

Good point RT @Bill Oram: Why is Wes inbounding? Isn't he a guy you want going to the rim?

Bill Oram

Why is Wes inbounding? Isn't he a guy you want going to the rim?

Mike Trudell

Gallinari moved his feet to throw the inbounds pass, which you can't do in that situation … turnover. Now LAL ball, 00.5 left.

Ryan Ward

In a weird change of events. Gallinari called for traveling. Lakers ball with 0.5.

Bill Oram

Gallinari turnes it over on the inbounds. Seems like there are so many things not to do in that situation...

Mike Trudell

We'll see if LAL watched the MEM-SAC tape from the other day...

Janis Carr

Oh boy. Five more minutes of this game.

Ryan Ward

Clock has been changed to 0.5. Enough for Fisher-like miracle to avoid OT.

Kevin Ding

Kobe was short on lots of shots in 4Q, when he's 3 of 11. Byron sent him back in early enough he's on pace for nearly 40 minutes.

Mike Trudell

Kobe's short on a potential game-winning J, after playing 39 more minutes. He's missed his last 5 shots. 00.5 left for Denver.

Gary Lee

Kobe misses the jumper and the Nuggets take a timeout with 0.3 seconds remaining.

Ryan Ward

Kobe misses the jumper. 0.3 left on the clock. Nuggets call a TO.

Arash Markazi

Kobe with the shot and the miss. Nuggets will get the ball with 0.5.

Bill Oram

Kobe misses a jumper. Denver timeout with .3 left. Guess we're going to overtime.

Kevin Ding

Kobe iso ... short.

Bill Oram

The Lakers have scored one point since Johnson's big three-point play. That was 3 minutes ago.

Gary Lee

It's all tied up at 86 with 15.1 seconds remaining in the game. Lakers ball and naturally, Kobe time.

Kamenetzky Brothers

I don't know what the cities of Denver and Los Angeles have done wrong, but if this game goes to OT, clearly it was something. BK

Mike Trudell

Interesting w/Shaw coaching Denver, knowing Kobe so well. Will he send extra attention early? Try to make sure Kobe doesn't get a look?

Arash Markazi

Lakers 86, Nuggets 86 with 15.1 seconds left. Lakers ball. Can you guess who's getting the last shot?

Ryan Ward

KOBE TIME. 15.1 secs left in the game. Tied at 86. Lakers ball.

Mike Trudell

Gallinari missed the 2nd of 2 FT's with 15.1 left. LAL ball, 86-all. Kobe buzzer-beating attempt coming? Feed the open guy if DEN doubles?

Kevin Ding

86-86. Lakers' ball vs. Nuggets. 15.1 seconds left...

Mike Trudell

Kobe's 3 for 10 in the 4th after the last 2 misses after starting 6 for 10 (9 for 20 overall), plus 6 boards, four assists w/23 points.

Ramona Shelburne

Hanley is always going to be able to hit. Great fit w/ an AL team used to extending the careers of sluggers.

Arash Markazi

That was Tony Romo's 27th game-winning drive.

Mike Trudell

Kobe's mad about not getting a verticality call when Mozgov seemed not to jump straight up, and hit him w/much contact at the rim.

Gary Lee

HOW WAS THAT NOT A FOUL?

Mike Trudell

Jordan Hill missed 1 of 2 FT's, and LAL are 21 for 28 (75%) on the night. DEN within 1 after Afflalo's hoop, 1 min. to go.

Gary Lee

Can confirm. RT @TWCSportsNet: With less than two minutes to go the Lakers have a 3-point lead. Now would be a good time to turn the game on

Gary Lee

If you somehow missed it, here's Wes Johnson's dunk that sucked the gravity out of Staples. And Sacre's celebration. lakersnation.com/los-angeles-la…

Beton Duran

Hey judge from The Voice, why you leaving a Lakers game just as your team takes the lead with 3 mins to go. Ya you LEVINE

Mike Trudell

Wesley Johnson made the 2 key plays to help LAL beat Houston the other day. We'll see if that and-1 hammer dunk is a game changer tonight.

Mike Trudell

Good to see Robert Sacre's been teaching rookie Jordan Clarkson some of his bench celebrations.

Mike Trudell

At first, I thought it might be Mozgov taking that hammer dunk from Johnson, but nope, Gallinari. Wouldn't have been Mozgov's first time.

Gary Lee

MR. WES IS IN THE BUILDING, AIN'T NO QUESTION WHO ABOUT TO KILL 'EM.

Bill Oram

And then he only has a lazy hand slap for Wes Johnson. Ha.

Mike Trudell

That's not good for USA-Italian relations … Wesley Johnson just dunked ALL over Gallinari.

Bill Oram

Robert Sacre hugging anybody and everybody on the Lakers bench after that dunk.

Mike Trudell

Ty Lawson is one assist away from tying his career high of 17 assists.

Kamenetzky Brothers

To everyone who attended Nuggets-Lakers in person, just remember, there are no refunds. AK

Ben Bolch

Clippers still in search of a strong player at small forward fw.to/WFrgYuL

Gary Lee

The Big Three (Kobe, Lin and Sacre) have 47 of the Lakers' 78 points.
