Two great back-to-back offensive plays by Julius Randle. Exactly what you want to see during Summer League
Julius Randle drives straight through the middle, lays it in. 8 points, 4 boards, 2 assists for Julius
Julius Randle feeds Jordan Clarkson for three to start the 3rd quarter. That's 9 points now for Clarkson.
TOR leads 52-30 after a brutal 2nd Q for LAL (just 10 points). Randle did have a few nice moves. Clarkson was good in the 1st Q.
At the end of the first half, Lakers down by 22 to Philadelphia. 52-30.
The Lakers were outscored 32-10 in the second quarter, trail PHI 52-30 at the half.
Like what I've seen from Randle in the last 2 min. … frustrated w/LAL's offense, he's gone hard to the hoop 3 straight times. 2 buckets.
Philly is out-working LAL here, enough for a 44-24 edge late in the 2nd. LAL have scored just 4 points in the period, 1:59 left.
Ed Davis gets 2-year deal from Lakers, per Yahoo. Ed Davis?
Yay, the Lakers have finally scored in the 2nd quarter. 38-21, 6ers.
The Lakers start of the second quarter looking an awful lot like the first, the Lakers have yet to score and we're almost 5 minutes in.
It's a 16-0 PHI run to start the 2nd Q now, LAL failing to score in nearly 5 minutes. Randle has 3R, 1A, 1S & 1B, 0 for 2 on O.
Philly opened the 1st Q on a 7-0 run, and this 2nd Q on a 10-0 run, allowing a 28-20 lead at the 7:37 mark. LAL looking sluggish.
LAL started the game down 7-0, but closed very well to tie it up, let by Clarkson's athleticism on both ends.
Consistent playing time shouldn't be a problem here, though, which likely explains why Davis picked the Lakers. BK
Jordan Clarkson now up to 6 points, 2 rebounds, after transition defense led to an easy layup.
Davis looked like a breakout candidate in Toronto, but was never able to gain consistent PT in Memphis. BK
Summer League games consists of 4, 10-minute quarters (8 minute half-time)
Jordan Clarkson with a pretty jumper. He's got 4 points for the Lakers. Lakers down by 1 with 2:18 to go in the first period.
Randle takes his first rest after about 5 minutes of 1st Q action, LAL down 13-8. Missed 2 FGA's, had 2 boards + a dime.
Took LAL 3 minutes to get on the board (a Kendall Marshall 3), but Randle's doing his Lamar Odom rebound-and-dribble-fullcourt thing.
It's becoming a regular thing to see Julius Randle grab a defensive rebound and push it up court here at SL.
I hope they talked about Davis with Byron today, otherwise he's going to have to come back in again. BK
It's set up to be a good evening for Julius Randle. He's had a day of rest after the B2B that was his first game action since March.
Song of the Year: "Sidepieces" by Drake and Brian McKnight.
Drake: "Iggy Azalea and Nick Young, I love you both. You're like a poor man's Jay and B."
“Bit of a snafu, Byron. We accidentally misplaced our notes, so we’re gonna need to start the interviews over from scratch.” AK
“Byron, do you like movies about gladiators?” BK
They might just want to bring in other guys to interview, just as cover while they figure out whatever it is they're figuring out. BK
That the Lakers seem frightened of hiring literally the safest candidate on Earth may not be a good sign. BK
"Thanks for coming in, Byron. I think with a couple more interviews, we could get this thing nailed down." BK
Spoke to several league sources today that said Phil Jackson has been very active in Knicks practices so far. Using those coaching instincts
This NBA writer is leaving Vegas broken and defeated, but the Lakers soldier on. They play Philly tonight in Summer League tourney. 7:30 pm
Said it before. My biggest concern about the Lakers is they seemingly have no idea how to operate from a position of disadvantage. AK
Old flyers people lol geez.
Quick work. Now it's time to attack the day
It's about to get REAL
Got one more
We’ll be on @TakeTwo (@kpcc) talking ASG, Selig, Angels, Dodgers, Sterling and NBA championship collars. 9:40 am PT.
Fun matchup between 1-and-done Kentucky products Julius Randle and Nerlens Noel tomorrow night...
The Lakers will play Philadelphia in the summer league tournament Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. That means Julius Randle vs. Nerlens Noel.
Lakers taking their time with this coaching hire. They did kinda rush the last two...
Commissioner Adam Silver could not guarantee the Clippers will have a new owner next season. "No, I cannt say with certainty."
Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak and Jim Buss will meet w/ Byron Scott again tomorrow, according to sources.
Can't beat a relaxing lunch in Venice
