Midway through 3, Lakers lead 69-58 as Robert Sacre is playing well.

Gary Lee

daskljdaklsjdlksa. RT @CountOnVic: Pau hasn't been this aggressive since he rubbed Chris Paul's head

Gary Lee

Robert Sacre's performance tonight is not surprising at all. He got snubbed as an All-Star reserve for the third consecutive season.

WHAT A MOVE BY JORDAN HILL ON JOAKIM NOAH.

Robert Sacre* RT @akzway: @Gary Lee feed Jordan Hill!

Gary Lee

Sprained ankle. RT @savp07: @Gary Lee can somebody please tell me why Nick Young ain't playing?.. Someone please?

Gary Lee

I like Clarkson's aggressiveness.

Gary Lee

Deal. RT @Richl562: @Gary Lee $100 says the tank will begin

Mike Trudell

Chicago makes a halftime line up switch, with Snell starting (Mirotic started the 1st half and was 0 for 2 with 0 rebounds and 0 assists).

Bill Oram

Tony Snell starts the second half for Chicago, replacing Nikola Mirotic, who was only scoreless Bull in first half.

Bill Oram

After halftime the Lakers have the lead, the ball and Carlos Boozer. The Bulls are feeling the pressure.

Gary Lee

Second half is underway. #Lakers http://t.co/ThySUVuIJt

Mike Trudell

LAL shot 59% in the 1st half, which will be tough to sustain in the 2nd half. Have to expect improved Bulls intensity on D.

Janis Carr

Looks like Ducks' winning streak is in real jeopardy. Trail Sharks, 6-1, after two periods

Bill Oram

The women around me seem as excited to see David Beckham as I was to see the Spice Girls reunion at the 2012 Olympics. #spiceworld

Mike Trudell

Strong LAL bench performance in the 1st half. Carlos Boozer had 14 and 4, Jeremy Lin 8 points and 3 assists, Ed Davis 8, 4 and 2.

#LLLLLLLLLakersNation. RT @CountOnVic: What terrible record, Kenny?! We second in the west http://t.co/pbOqcOIwDV

Gary Lee

Lakers are up 11 and this is probably my favorite picture of Pau Gasol. http://t.co/QXrKI4AWZ8

Gary Lee

At the end of 2, Lakers lead 59-48 as Carlos Boozer has 14 points.

Bill Oram

Lakers up 11 at halftime vs. Pau and the Chicago Bulls. Boozer with game-high 14 points.

Mike Trudell

LAL take a 59-48 lead into halftime, as Derrick Rose (4 for 10) misses a 3 at the buzzer. Boozer had 14 points on 7 of 10 FG's, Hill 11 + 6.

Janis Carr

Lakers lead the Bulls, 59-48, at the half. That's correct.

Gary Lee

Carlos Boozer will kill you, Bulls.

Gary Lee

BREAKING: Carlos Boozer missed a wide-open layup, so you may drink. http://t.co/rOHun1vU0L

Mike Trudell

A pretty pass from Pau Gasol, which we've seen so often in this building, got Snell a dunk and Chicago within 10.

Mike Bresnahan

Boozer = 12 points, Gasol = 8 points. Certainly not indicative of their seasons, but scoreboard shows Lakers up 14.

Gary Lee

JORDAN CRAIG HILL WITH NO REGARD FOR HUMAN LIFE.

Mike Trudell

Jordan Hill's been extra aggressive tonight against his former teammate, helping LAL to a 20-11 edge on the glass, and he has 10 points.

Gary Lee

Pau Gasol's post moves >>>

Gary Lee

Don't say that about my friend. RT @cdanielle2329: Ryan Kelly seriously is the most awkward and clumsy player... @Gary Lee

Janis Carr

Lakers arent letting this one go -- not yet anyway. Lead, 50-38 with 3:22 left in first half

Gary Lee

Red is not Pau Gasol's color. I think he looks better in purple and/or gold.

Mike Trudell

LAL are shooting 60% against Chicago, and Tom Thibodeau isn't pleased about it. 50-37 is the lead with 3:55 left in the 2nd Q.

Gary Lee

Lakers were up 19 against the Wizards and eventually lost, so we'll see what happens tonight.

Gary Lee

Midway through 2, Lakers lead 44-33 as Carlos Boozer has 12 points in his revenge game against the Bulls.

Gary Lee

Pretty much, Jay. RT @JayHCking: @Gary Lee Is this the Carlos Boozer "revenge" game?

Gary Lee

Carlos Boozer was playing well with 12 points, so Byron naturally took him out of the game. 44-31, Lakers.

Mike Trudell

Boozer's up to 12 points against the team that amnestied him, hitting 6 of 8 FG's to push LAL to a 44-31 lead, their biggest of the game.

Gary Lee

#HOLDAT. RT @ohheyvalerie: @Gary Lee why can't he do this every single game?

Kamenetzky Brothers

This isn't a nice way for Carlos Boozer to treat the people paying him so much money this year. BK

Bill Oram

The Booz is indeed flowing.

Bill Oram

Mike Dunleavy about to go on the Lakers radio broadcast.

Gary Lee

Carlos Boozer is making the Bulls regret amnestying him during the summer. Already in double-figures.

Bill Oram

Pau Gasol not the only great Lakers big man here tonight. James Worthy steps out of the studio to be here in person.

Gary Lee

WHAT A PASS, JEREMY LIN.

Mike Trudell

Boozer: "Hey! And-1!" as he scores on Mirotic. He's up to 10 quick points after a tip in moments later, LAL up 38-29.

Bill Oram

Jeremy Lin and Carlos Boozer carrying the offensive load for the Lakers. Boozer has 10, Lin 8. Both being very aggressive.

Gary Lee

That might've been one of the worst passes I've seen in my life. Congratulations, Wes Johnson.

Bill Oram

Wes Johnson just threw one of the worst passes you will ever.

Gary Lee

Lakers have played to the level of the competition this season. #Analysis

Mike Trudell

Pau Gasol played all 12 1st Q minutes towards 6 points, 2 assists, 1 rebound and 2 blocks.

Gary Lee

Pau Gasol has six points, two assists, two blocks and one puppy in his return to Staples against Lakers. http://t.co/4yZ631Tsmr

Kamenetzky Brothers

Crouching Boozer, Hidden And One. AK

Gary Lee

Shouldn't have amnestied Carlos Boozer, Chicago Bulls.

Bill Oram

Lakers up 28-19 at end of 1st quarter. Boozer leads the way with 6 pts, Clarkson 5. Pau has 6 pts, 2 asts, reb for Bulls.

Mike Trudell

LAL take a 28-19 lead into the 2nd Q, CHI narrowing the once 12-point lead with a late 3 from Tony Snell. 8 Lakers scored at least 2 pts.

Gary Lee

At the end of 1, Lakers lead 28-19 as Carlos Boozer has six points and two rebounds in his revenge game.

Janis Carr

Lakers up by 10 on the Bulls, but then again they had a double-digit lead on Washington too

Gary Lee

Wes Johnson makes a good defensive play on Jimmy Butler, but should not be able to make lob passes for the rest of his career.

Mike Trudell

Similarly strong start for LAL as they had against Washington on Tuesday. The lead is 24-14 over Chicago after Lin's 2nd hoop.

Gary Lee

2015 Jeremy Lin > 2014 Jeremy Lin.

Janis Carr

Dont let @Marc Stein hear you say that about historic Titan Gym RT @lorenelaine: This place makes me itch... #GOBEACH

Mike Trudell

LAL's up 22-14 after a pull-up J from Jeremy Lin soon after his entrance. Clarkson's 2 for 2 w/a 3 for 5 points, and 7 Lakers have scored.

Was told night of draft that Jordan Clarkson was not Lakers initial target in second round. Still, took a chance. Seems to be working out.

Bill Oram

Soooo close to a MasterCard ad. RT @Nick Friedell: The Pau Gasol shirt that fans are getting tonight. http://t.co/dPPmnHcEpW

Among celebrities in the crowd, former Lakers (Bucks, Blazers, Clippers) coach Mike Dunleavy is here in the not-cheap seats.

Bill Oram

All six Lakers to check in have scored and LA has run out to a 16-8 lead over the Bulls.

Gary Lee

Midway through 1, Lakers lead 16-8 in Pau Gasol's return to Staples.

Mike Trudell

Carlos Boozer hit his 1st shot against his former team, a FT-line jumper, as LAL holds a 12-8 lead. LAL are 5 of 9 as a team, CHI 4 of 12.

Gary Lee

Robert Sacre picked up two fouls in six minutes and somewhere out there, Travis Knight is smiling.

Janis Carr

Jeanie Buss making her second consecutive appearance at Staples, no doubt to see Pau

Gary Lee

Unfortunately, Joakim Noah has a better jump shot than me.

Gary Lee

Wayne Ellington remains hot and scores his first jumper of the night.

Mike Trudell

Fresh off a career-high 28 points, Wayne Ellington got a tough left-handed layup to go through traffic to put LAL up 10-4 early.

Mike Trudell

LAL's 2 starting bigs, Sacre and Hill, played a lot of 1-v-1 vs. Pau last year in practice. The Spaniard won most of those games.

Bill Oram

Kobe was supposed to address crowd after Pau tribute, but was in tremendous amount of pain & groggy from meds. Spoke to Pau privately & left

Kelly Clarkson with back-to-back threes and Lakers lead 6-0.

Mike Trudell

LAL came out in a 3-2 zone, which the Bulls worked to get a shot for Gasol, who just missed. Clarkson then hit a 3 to open the scoring.

Gary Lee

Pau Gasol misses his first shot, but #LakersNation misses you.

Loud applause for Pau Gasol, who quietly acknowledges the crowd.

... But he made point to say how much he is enjoying Chicago. He still has his place in LA, though, and figures to live here in the future.

Kamenetzky Brothers

If I started today, how long would it take me to get good at the cello? (Please include the time to acquire a cello.) BK

Kevin Ding

When Pau asked how things are w/me, I said great--and kidded him by saying I still get to live full-time in LA. He allowed that's something.

Kamenetzky Brothers

We know Pau will get the video treatment. But will he get the "Tina Turner" treatment? AK youtu.be/GC5E8ie2pdM
