Ben Bolch

Doc Rivers was pissed after Marc Gasol drove for that dunk.

Mike Trudell

Byron Scott said he isn’t sure just yet if Carlos Boozer (questionable w/shoulder) will play. If not, Ed Davis would start.

Ben Bolch

Chris Paul did lower his shoulder into Mike Conley on that play. Good call.

Ben Bolch

Clippers playing better but still down double digits. Going to need a much bigger push to win this game.

Ben Bolch

"All day. He can't guard you. All day," Clippers assistant Armond Hill yells after another Chris Paul jumper.

Mike Bresnahan

Boozer might not play tonight because of a sore shoulder, Byron Scott said. Ed Davis would start vs. Denver.

Ben Bolch

No matter what happens, Mike Woodson perpetually has this look on his face like everything is OK by him.

Ben Bolch

Bloody nose for Blake Griffin.

Ben Bolch

Grizzlies need timeout after Chris Paul three-pointer trims deficit to 62-52. Paul much more aggressive.

Ben Bolch

Chris Paul with two quick baskets.

Gary Lee

Two hours before #LakersBasketball, so check out videos of the week which features Kobe and Shaq via @SerenaWinters. lakersnation.com/top-videos-kob…

Ben Bolch

To be fair to Clippers, the Grizzlies make lots of teams look bad. But Clippers should know the drill too well to play like this.

Ben Bolch

There's a guy inside a human hamster wheel going around and round at halftime in Memphis. Might as well be Clippers.

Ben Bolch

Pace-adjusted, Clippers' 13-point halftime lead is more like 27. (H/T @ClippersCentral)

Melissa Rohlin

Halftime: Memphis 53, Clippers 40. The Clippers are shooting only 35.1% and have trailed by as many as 17 points.

Ben Bolch

Chris Paul has as many turnovers (one) as assists at halftime. No wonder Clippers' offense seems so horribly out of sync.

Ben Bolch

Clippers trail Grizzlies, 53-40, at halftime. Even at the Grindhouse, being on pace for 80 points is terrible.

Ben Bolch

J.J. Redick seems to be a non-factor in games when he doesn't get going early. Going to do an analytical study on this and get back to you.

Ben Bolch

Big Baby gets the steal, manages to keep the ball and get it to Chris Paul. His passion is something the rest of the team needs.

Ben Bolch

Clippers aren't in Florida anymore.

Ben Bolch

Clippers need a new game plan for second half.

Melissa Rohlin

The Grizzlies have pushed their lead to 15 with just under three minutes left in the second.

Ben Bolch

Marc Gasol already has 18 points. Wowzers.

Arash Markazi

FINAL: Galaxy 1, Sounders 0. The second leg of the Western Conference Championship is next week in Seattle.

Ben Bolch

MLS goes a week between playoff games? What, are they scared playing more frequently will hurt their wuttle wegs?

Melissa Rohlin

Gasol hit Blake Griffin hard, but it looked as though he were making a play on the ball. Refs ruled it a common foul. Clippers aren't happy

Ben Bolch

Fan yells: "Hey Barnes, if anybody knows about flagrant, it's you, brother."

Ben Bolch

Fan behind replay monitor yells: "It's the NBA, not kindergarten." Common foul indeed.

Ben Bolch

Not a dirty play by Marc Gasol. His arm was stuck in a bad spot.

Melissa Rohlin

The Clippers are being outshot, 51.6% to 35.5% and outrebounded, 20-11. They're down, 37-27, with 5 mins left in the second

Ben Bolch

Marc Gasol looks leaner than he ever has. His game continues to improve and evolve. Dare I bring the Lakers into this conversation?

Melissa Rohlin

The Clippers definitely don't have the magic touch today against the Grizzlies that they've had in their past two road games.

Ben Bolch

Marc Gasol sinking the Clippers. This could get ugly quickly.

Ben Bolch

There is a new wave in the NBA: old-timers on the court during timeouts. Not players, random fans. Dancing.

Laker Girls

Rehearsing on the court before tonight's game vs. Denver! #GoLakers http://t.co/LF3hYdnoue

Ben Bolch

Sam Cassell showing some major leadership as an assistant. Surprised he didn't immediately become head coach.

Ben Bolch

Oh, and I buried the lead. Davis did it while we were interviewing Jamal Crawford.

Ben Bolch

Glen Davis entertained himself the other night making strange sounds to see what they would like on Voice-O-Meter on my recorder. Fun guy.

Ben Bolch

Lawrence Frank yelling out what plays he thinks Griz will run to Clippers across the court. They're often coded, so no idea if he's right.

Ben Bolch

Doc Rivers is engaging fans on offensive foul on Z-Bo. Turns to them and asks, "You don't agree with that call?" Then he smiles.

Ben Bolch

Sam Cassell pulled Chris Paul aside for a long one-on-one chat before start of second quarter. Expect to see a much more aggressive CP3.

Ben Bolch

Grizzlies lead Clippers, 26-21, at end of an ugly first quarter. Matt Barnes has nine points and Blake Griffin 7 for Clippers. Chris Paul? 0

Ben Bolch

Chris Paul does not have a point or an assist.

Ben Bolch

I always haggle, by the way.

The @LAGalaxy are riding a 20-game unbeaten streak at the StubHub Center.

Ben Bolch

Grizzlies just had a promotion where their mascot threw a pie in the face of a guy wearing a Lob City T-shirt. Hope it was staged.

Arash Markazi

The Galaxy take a 1-0 lead on the Sounders in the 53rd minute. L.A. is 15-1-5 when scoring first, including the playoffs.

Bill Oram

Each year, the AMAs make getting to Staples Center quite the adventure. But hey, I saw Fergie.

Ben Bolch

Matt Barnes playing as if Doc Rivers told him reporters were questioning his small forwards before the game.

Ben Bolch

Random note: Marc Gasol looks/acts more menacing than Pau but is just as friendly when you talk to him.

Ben Bolch

Matt Barnes acting like it's Game 6 of 2013 first-round series.

Ben Bolch

These fire contraptions don't seem worth it at NBA games. You hate to think about what could go wrong.

Ben Bolch

CDR on injury: "That’s why I was shooting so many jumpers because I really couldn’t get to the basket. I didn’t have any real explosiveness.

Ben Bolch

CDR on being out: "It’s not really tough for me, man. I’m one of those positive spirits. I don’t have any real bad days or real bad thoughts

Ben Bolch

CDR on shot: "If it was falling, I probably would have continued to play on it and it’s a possibility that it could have popped completely."

Ben Bolch

CDR on his injury: "The toughest thing is taking criticism, knowing inside what was really going on, but taking criticism from the outside.

Ben Bolch

Chris Douglas-Roberts has resumed spot shooting but still can't move laterally.

Ben Bolch

Chris Douglas-Roberts on Achilles': "I haven’t even asked for a timeline because I don’t want to hear something that I don’t want to hear."

Ben Bolch

The Chris Paul tweet needed an asterisk. *Since NBA started tracking turnovers in 1977.

Ben Bolch

Chris Paul only player in NBA history to play the first 11 games of a season with at least 105 assists and 16 or fewer turnovers.

Gary Lee

Byron Scott says Xavier Henry isn’t the same explosive player and doesn’t know if he can regain that via @TheeCoreyH. lakersnation.com/byron-scott-un…

Everybody back for Grizzlies versus Clippers.

If this were the WWE today's Rams-Chargers game would be a "Loser Leaves Town" match.

L.A. is a Laker, Dodger, USC football and UCLA basketball town. That was built over 50 years on a foundation of titles not bragging rights.

Arash Markazi

UCLA is much better than the 4-5-loss squads USC has had the past 3 years. No doubt. I'm just saying you have to do more to truly "own L.A."

Kamenetzky Brothers

20 minutes away from Trojan Brunch with @CoachHarveyHyde -- Talking USC/UCLA, taking calls. @ESPNLA710 8-10 am. BK

Arash Markazi

I'd like to think that any program in any sport that "owns L.A." has more than one conference title since 1998.

Arash Markazi

The Victory Bell and bragging rights change hands every year. I just don't think the same is true for the proverbial ownership of L.A.

Arash Markazi

Three seasons of dominance over USC won't make the Bruins L.A.'s team. es.pn/11JxmIa

Arash Markazi

Jim Mora will be the first to tell you it's great to beat USC but he wants UCLA to win the conference, go to the Rose Bowl and win it.

If USC (7-4) loses to Notre Dame next week, the nickname of “Seven-Win Sark” will live on at USC.

Arash Markazi

Last season was a train wreck with 3 head coaches for USC and they finished 10-4. USC (7-4) won't be able to equal that this season.
