Byron on Kobe’s second half performance: “Tells me his legs are coming back”

Ryan Ward

Byron Scott told the team: “we’re close.”

Ben Bolch

Regular season can't start fast enough for Matt Barnes, who is now shooting 3/31 (9.7%) and 1/18 (5.6%) on threes.

Gary Lee

You had one job, Wes. http://t.co/wKfXoFO85t

Gary Lee

Thanks for tuning in tonight, #LakersNation! Follow my personal account, @DanDuangdao and I blame Chief Keef AKA Wes Johnson.

Gary Lee

INSTANT RECAP: Despite Kobe’s heroics late in the fourth quarter, Lakers lose 114-108 in overtime via @TheeCoreyH. lakersnation.com/lakers-preseas…

Ryan Ward

Game time. Suns win, 114-108

Ryan Ward

The second three by Wes stands. 109-108, Suns. 44.9 left.

Ryan Ward

Wes’ last shot will be reviewed.

Ryan Ward

Wes out there trying to redeem himself. Two straight 3s from the SF. Lakers down one with 44.9 left in the game. 109-108

Gary Lee

Check out Kobe Bryant’s clutch shots late in the fourth quarter and overtime. Not bad for the 40th best in the NBA. lakersnation.com/los-angeles-la…

Ryan Ward

I. Thomas insists on looking at Floyd Mayweather after every basket. Got a little Reggie Miller-Spike Lee action going.

Gary Lee

Kobe is done for the night with Lakers trailing 105-102 with less than two minutes left in overtime.

Ryan Ward

Gerald Green was actually waived by the Lakers a few years back. LA actually signed Wes Johnson, twice. Bad move, bruh.

Gary Lee

Wes Johnson makes a three AFTER PJ Tucker fouls Kobe. Of course.

Ryan Ward

Kobe nails a jumper. Game tied. 96 apiece

Ryan Ward

Wes Johnson not helping matters in OT. Fouls Gerald Green. Two shots.

Gary Lee

Because Wes Johnson. http://t.co/rXGDOcNedz

Ryan Ward

Lakers: Price, Kobe, Wes, Boozer and Hill to start OT.

Ryan Ward

Jeremy Lin fouled out meaning Ronnie Price will likely be running the point in OT.

Ryan Ward

OVERTIME. Thomas hits the game-tying bucket and then stares at Floyd Mayweather courtside.

Bill Oram

Overtime in Anaheim. The only good thing about that is that it rhymes.

Gary Lee

GIVE THE BALL TO KOBE, CHIEF KEEF.

Ryan Ward

Lin fouls I. Thomas. Fouls out of the game. Ellington in for Lin.

Ryan Ward

Ronnie Price checked in for Carlos Boozer. Lakers: Price, Lin, Kobe, Wes and Hill

Ryan Ward

Kobe hits both free throws. Lakers up three, 94-91. 12.8 left.

Gary Lee

Pretty damn good for the 40th best player in the NBA.

Ryan Ward

Lakers up 1. Kobe to the line for 2. 92-91. 12.8 secs left.

Bill Oram

Little smile from Kobe after he buries that tough, tough turnaround J to put the Lakers up 92-91 in the final minute.

Ryan Ward

Three straight baskets for Kobe. Lakers up 1.

Gary Lee

And the slap to the ass. RT @AngryLakersFan: All that was missing there was the smirk over to Alvin Gentry as Kobe walked by.

Ben Bolch

Jared Cunningham tomahawk dunk. Didn't see that coming.

Ryan Ward

Kobe does it again. Lakers up 2, 90-88. About a min left.

Gary Lee

DON’T PASS THE BALL ANYMORE, KOBE. SHOOT IT EVERY SINGLE POSSESSION.

Ryan Ward

Kobe hits the game-tying jumper and this place is finally alive. 88 all.

Gary Lee

Three minutes left in the game and the Lakers are down 88-86. Check out the highlights so far, including Linsanity. lakersnation.com/los-angeles-la…

Gary Lee

!!! RT @SoCalGal64: Kobe needs a designated jumper.

Ryan Ward

Possible starters for Oct. 28 on the floor right now: Lin, Kobe, Wes, Boozer and Hill

Gary Lee

LINSANITY: LOS ANGELES.

Gary Lee

Asking for a friend. RT @TheeCoreyH: Is Xavier Henry back from Germany yet??

Gary Lee

You said it, not me. RT @NotClayMerritt: @Gary Lee THAT AIRBALL IS THE CAUSE FOR THE LAKERS DOWNFALL. #BLAMEKOBE

Gary Lee

No one saw that airball, Kobe.

Gary Lee

Jeremy Lin makes a three. Those “M-V-P” chants make sense now.

Ryan Ward

Really like this lineup: Lin, Kobe, Ellington, Randle and Davis…. And Lin drains a three.

Ryan Ward

Jeremy Lin and Ed Davis have the best chemistry on the team so far. Always got a feel for where each other are on the floor. Great combo.

Ryan Ward

Now Jeremy Lin getting “MVP!” chants at the Honda Center. Again, another first. #Lakers

Ryan Ward

Somebody cheering for Robert Sacre in the crowd: “We want Sacre!” Got to say that’s a first. #Lakers

Melissa Rohlin

Halftime: Warriors 62, Clippers 60. Redick leads all scorers with 18 points.

Ryan Ward

Jeremy Lin back in the game with Ellington, Smith, Randle and Davis to start the 4th.

Ben Bolch

Doc Rivers picks up second technical foul of preseason after saying he never had one before this season. Argued about non-call on Cunningham

Gary Lee

At the end of 3, Lakers trail 77-71. Kobe leads the Lakers with 15 points and had some nice jumpers. Highlights: lakersnation.com/los-angeles-la…

Gary Lee

"I been ballin' so damn hard, I swear I think that I'm Kobe” - Chief Keef AKA Wes Johnson.

Ben Bolch

Spencer Hawes may turn DeAndre Jordan into an assist man.

Ryan Ward

I’d like to see Jeremy Lin play with this group rather than Ronnie Price. Definitely gets more going offensively.

Gary Lee

Wes Johnson’s new nickname will be Chief Keef.

Ben Bolch

Matt Barnes ticker: now 3/29 and 1/17 on threes.

Gary Lee

Probably. RT @AngryLakersFan: @Gary Lee Nah, Kobe made him play defense the whole time.

Melissa Rohlin

Surely Doc's least favorite stat of the game: The Clips are being outrebounded, 20-12. They've been outrebounded in every exhibition game.

Gary Lee

Wes Johnson practiced with Kobe the entire summer. Therefore, Wes Johnson thinks he’s Kobe.

Melissa Rohlin

Redick has 11 points on 4-for-8 shooting. This Clippers team really has a lot of weapons.

Gary Lee

HEY GUYZ, CARLOS BOOZER JUST MADE A JUMP SHOT.

Ben Bolch

DeAndre Jordan with the entry pass to Spencer Hawes, who is fouled on the layup. Really like the look this duo presents for Clippers.

Ryan Ward

Wes Johnson just doesn’t have a feel for passing the bball. Quite a few bad dishes tonight.

Gary Lee

Midway through 3, Lakers trail 64-59 to the Suns, but Kobe’s off to a hot start. Check out the highlights so far. lakersnation.com/los-angeles-la…

Ryan Ward

Kobe takes it to the bucket. Scores the layup increases his total to a game-high 15. Lakers still down by three, 64-61.

Melissa Rohlin

Lob City - Crawford to DJ.

Gary Lee

Carlos Boozer is looking like himself again -- if only he played the Jazz every night.

Ryan Ward

Jordan Hill putting up solid numbers as usual. 14 points (game-high), 4 boards and two assists. #Lakers

Melissa Rohlin

The Warriors, who trailed by 7, are on an 11-0 run. They're up, 38-35.

Gary Lee

“MY HANDS IS HOT” - KOBE.

Ryan Ward

Kobe heating up to start the 2nd half. 9 points thus far.

Melissa Rohlin

The Clippers have had 17 free throw attempts this game. The Warriors have only had four.

Melissa Rohlin

"We really haven't played well in the preseason. It's not that we don't want to, we just haven't," Doc Rivers told TNT at start of 2nd qtr.

Gary Lee

Lakers held the Suns to 39 percent in the first half, so there’s that.

Ben Bolch

Jared Cunningham had eight points to help the Clippers take a 33-27 lead over Warriors going into second quarter.

Melissa Rohlin

After one quarter: Clippers 33, Warriors 27.

Ben Bolch

Jamal Crawford serving as the backup point guard with Chris Paul (rest) and Jordan Farmar (back) out.

Melissa Rohlin

Crawford draws the foul on a three-point attempt. He's a master at that.

Ben Bolch

Jamal Crawford sells the foul so well on three-pointers it seems as if falling down/away is part of his follow-through.

Gary Lee

At the end of 2, Lakers trail 50-47. Jordan Hill leads the team with 10 points. Check out the first half highlights. lakersnation.com/los-angeles-la…

Janis Carr

So the argument that Kobe is worth every penny because he continues to be a draw doesn't hold true in OC. #emptyseatsinAnaheim

Kamenetzky Brothers

Jordan Hill's jump shot influences include Andre Miller. AK

Gary Lee

Jordan Hill just made another jump shot and during the off-season, he took 1,000 of them because Kobe told him to.

Ben Bolch

Jared Cunningham making some nice plays in first quarter for Clippers.

Bill Oram

Floyd Mayweather loves the KissCam.

Melissa Rohlin

Barnes drives down the lane, is fouled, and converts the layup. He needed that three-point play. Bad.

Ben Bolch

One make just boosted Matt Barnes to 10.7% shooting accuracy.

Ryan Ward

Lakers take the lead on Kobe’s second free throw, 38-37.

Ben Bolch

Matt Barnes misses again. Now making 7.4% of his shots in the preseason.

Gary Lee

HEY GUYZ, WES JOHNSON JUST MADE A JUMP SHOT.

Ryan Ward

Wes Johnson… Yes, Wes Johnson hits a three to tie the game at 34.
