Spencer Hawes has 14 points. That's news.
Biggest story of third quarter so far (besides Jimmy Butler's elbow) is DeAndre Jordan not getting one rebound in 6 1/2 minutes.
Jamal Crawford's jumper is good for his first points after he had missed his first seven shots.
Expected Clippers to come out a bit stronger after halftime, now trailing Bulls, 52-48.
Jimmy Butler appeared to ding his elbow running into DeAndre Jordan, comes out of game.
Spencer Hawes with nine points. Has reached double digits in only a handful of games this season.
Joakim Noah shoots like ... Ben Bolch. Can't imagine a worse insult.
Matt Barnes airballed a three-pointer. And it was even less close than that.
DeAndre Jordan has 17 rebounds in the first half. It's the most by any player in the NBA this season for a first half.
Starting to wonder about fellow Clippers beat writers. Don't like Indian food, haven't seen Invasion of the Body Snatchers or Roger Dodger.
DeAndre Jordan's 17 rebounds were the most in a half by any NBA player this season.
Halftime: Clippers 43 Bulls 41. DJ has 17 rebounds in the first half....
Halftime: Clippers 43, Bulls 41. DeAndre Jordan with 17 rebounds and 5 points. Chris Paul with 14 points and 4 assists.
Clippers hold a 43-41 halftime lead over Bulls. If Doc Rivers wants to win this game he will play starters heavy minutes in 2nd half.
Aaron Brooks just knocked over Sam Cassell.
DeAndre Jordan has 15 or more rebounds in eight consecutive games. Up to 16 now.
Jamal Crawford and Austin Rivers have combined to go 0-for-10 off the bench to start the game. The Clippers still lead the Bulls 37-34.
Lawrence Frank told Doc pregame New York pizza was better than Chicago pizza. Doc said he wouldn't have hired him if he had told him that.
United Center crowd super quiet.
Matt Barnes hobbles back onto the court, jumping up and down to test legs.
Noah trying to get the crowd into it. Chicago had more of a home court edge when they were playing in L.A. earlier this season.
Energy/talent discrepancy between Clippers' first and second units must be the biggest in the NBA.
The last six minutes haven't exactly been a salve for concerns over the LAC's bench unit. BK
Clippers current lineup is Austin Rivers, Jamal Crawford, Jordan Hamilton, Hedo Turkoglu and Glen Davis.
Austin Rivers drives impressively but one-handed dunk bounces out.
Jordan Hamilton in early with Matt Barnes having some sort of issue. Big opportunity for him.
Doc Rivers needs to mix and match more with first and second units. Need at least two starters on the court at all times.
Clippers second unit = problems. Big ones.
I think Zach Galifianakis just made a three-pointer for the Bulls.
Clippers 26, Bulls 18 after the 1st quarter. Every Clippers starter has scored. Chris Paul with a game-high 8 points.
Clippers lead Bulls, 26-18, after first quarter. Bulls looking flat so far, but it's early.
I will be eating at Cafe Iberico tonight in honor of Pau Gasol and Spanish/Latin month in the NBA.
Tony Snell was a high school teammate of Kawhi Leonard's. Wonder how many times 2 h.s. teammates have gone on to NBA.
Mirotic wins the battle of the beards.
Chicago Bulls looking pretty awful right now.
Pau Gasol apparently shouldn't tweet and shoot 22-foot jumpers at the same time.
Spencer Hawes killing it in the post!
Pau Gasol just ruined it for all those kiddos who thought celebrities tweeted from their own accounts.
DeAndre Jordan makes a free throw after not being close on first three.
Maybe seeing Pau Gasol will remind Clippers of all those Lakers blowouts.
This is DeAndre Jordan's 300th consecutive game played for the Clippers, longest active streak in the NBA.
DeAndre Jordan starts his 300th consecutive game today, the longest active streak in the NBA. http://t.co/PmhWHPnbEe
Player intros being made in Spanish as a tribute to Los Bulls day, or something like that.
Chicago's running of the Bulls scoreboard intro has gotten more tech-y since the Michael Jordan era but far less spine-tingling.
A moment of silence for Minnie Minoso at United Center. http://t.co/HnYG0PTVji
Starters - Bulls: Brooks, Butler, Gasol, Noah, Dunleavy Clippers: Paul, Redick, Jordan, Hawes, Barnes
Pau Gasol is playing today. Taj Gibson is out.
Pau is good to play, Taj Gibson is out.
Here's the Fargo parking lot I was talking about. Chills on multiple levels. http://t.co/UY8LcAYQq4
Doc Rivers: "The passing of Anthony Mason is so sad. He was a true warrior and a great teammate." http://t.co/dto2Z5HbHI
New sitcom idea: David Brent as an NBA head coach. Some might say it already happened during the Mike Brown era with Lakers.
I keep wondering what time it is in Japan for some reason.
When the Chicago Bulls woo players in free agency, they do it with moolah. Get it???
What was going through Cat Zingano's mind immediately after the fight? "I was just stunned and speechless and caught in that moment."
Zingano, after http://t.co/pPu3T2LI5L
Dana White "Nobody s**ts on a Ronda Rousey fight"
Note to self: If Ronda Rousey offers to put you in an armlock, politely decline. AK
I can honestly say I don't care about Rousey/Zingano. But it's not sexist, because I don't care about the men in MMA, either. BK
Zingano, "I want to do it again. Just f***"
Zingano was devastated after the loss. Just devastated. This meant so much to her. Love that Rousey came over and hugged her.
I wouldn't say I'm Kobe's *primary* muse, because that's probably a little much. But certainly within the top 5. AK
The rooftop parking lot across from my hotel looks exactly like shootout scene from Fargo, snow and everything. Kinda freaking me out.
The more games I watched… the more I saw a younger version of MJ emerge. Kobe had all the tools. Began to love every part of his game.
It was hard for me to root for an arrogant teenager stealing the spotlight from my favorite Laker, Nick Van Exel.
Couldn’t stand Kobe when he was a rookie. I thought he was cocky, arrogant & a bust. He quickly changed my opinion in the years to come.
I remember screaming at the TV. Directing all my anger at Del Harris: “Give the ball to Van Exel!!” Wasn’t a Kobe fan at that point.
Watching Kobe Bryant’s MUSE. Showing Game 5 against the Jazz back in 1997. Four airballs. Still makes me cringe. That was rough.
