Don’t forget to move your clock one hour ahead. Why am I awake? Because I’m trying to rebuild the Lakers on NBA 2K.
"Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis. When I was dead broke, man I couldn’t picture this." Rest in Peace, Biggie Smalls.
Doc on suffering a letdown after the Lakers win: "What were we up for? I don’t understand the let down if you know what I mean."
Jamal Crawford didn't re-injure his left calf he just needs more to get it stronger.
Jamal Crawford said he returned too soon. Said he needs to get his left calf stronger. He'll miss Monday's game and he's day to day.
Daylight saving is tomorrow. One less hour of sleep. Great.
Conan the barbarian might be in my top 10 movies (the original).
FINAL: Clippers 109, Hawks 108.
Teague made one and missed one. Clippers ball with 1.2 seconds left.
Jeff Teague to the line for two game-tying free throws. He makes one. Clippers 109, Hawks 108 with 1.2 seconds left.
Scoreboard shows no time left, Clippers 109, Hawks 107 but there is a last second foul by Jordan on Jeff Teague. Replay time.
Blake Griffin misses two free throws that could have sealed the win.
Clippers 109, Hawks 107 with 47.1 seconds left. Hawks ball.
Clippers 107, Hawks 107 with 1:30 left.
Blake Griffin strong like bull. BK
For some reason the fans are booing Malcolm Smith. L.A. hasn't had an NFL team for 20 years. A local boy won the Super Bowl MVP. Odd.
Malcolm Smith says he's a Clippers fan and his favorite player is Jamal Crawford.
Clippers 88, Hawks 78 at the end of the 3rd quarter. Blake Griffin with 20 points. Chris Paul with 17 points and 10 assists.
Let's just say this officiating crew isn't having their best game of the season.
Doc Rivers said Crawford wouldn't play much tonight and he certainly hasn't. Not sure if he'll play in the 2nd half.
Jamal Crawford's left calf is heavily taped as he sits on the bench. He played 9:35 in the 1st half. Hasn't played in the 2nd half.
Hahaha it's even funnier when they start laughing during the show hahaha
This "love doctor" episode on Martin
Halftime: Hawks 58, Clippers 57. Matt Barnes 13 points. Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan with 10 points each.
daaamn, dook ain't play their walk on senior? lmao that's grimy.
It's a physical game in the paint tonight. The referees are letting them go at it down low. It feels like a Matt Barnes ejection type game.
0-0 at half. Exciting game. Somehow.
DeMarre Carroll and Blake Griffin are getting into it. Keep an eye out for that.
Watching soccer tonight? Nicky is having a GAME. Back line is making it necessary too.
The Hawks have hit 4-of-9 three-pointers. They hit 12-of-23 when they beat the Clippers Dec. 4. Hawks 41, Clippers 34 in the 2nd quarter.
Like I say, the post is your best defender
I'd think the Clippers getting out of giving Elton Brand a 5-year, $80 million deal was one of the better moves they made pre-CP3.
Elton Brand is happy for the Clippers but is quick to point out he had them in Game 7 of the 2nd round. Clippers have yet to go that far.
Jamal Crawford is checking into the game. He missed the last three games with a strained left calf.
Elton Brand checks into the game and gets booed by the Clippers crowd. Really? Still?
At StubHub Ctr to watch the local club take on the defending Western Conf champs in the MLS season opener. Sup SLC! http://t.co/L4rRribaSc
Dickie V, you were just added to the Romo list.
I understand why nobody likes Romo now.
When I asked Big Baby about the Clippers' title hopes he said “Its almost to the point of a supernatural belief. We’re starting to believe."
The kid Andrew Wiggins showed his heart today in a loss. Watch out.
only way to win AT dook, gotta expose their guard's one on one. lil Nate makin things happen
Jamal Crawford will come off the bench tonight. Jared Dudley will not play.
Over the next 13 days the Lakers play just 4 games: 2 at home against OKC & SAS and 2 on the road against OKC & SAS.
Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.
Hoping the Knicks call Phil Jackson around midnight to inform him that they've decided to hire Mike D'Antoni instead... =(
Taking a front office job with a bad team won't taint Jackson's legacy as a coach. Anyone think less of MJ as a player because of Charlotte?
How would Jeanie and Phil do running the Lakers? I don't know but I'd like to find out. I doubt we ever will though.
If given a similar role as Pat Riley in Miami, Phil Jackson would be the reason big free agents would chose to sign with the team he's with.
There's always been hope that Jeanie and Phil would come in and clean this mess. If Phil goes to New York, that's not happening for awhile.
Phil Jackson is essentially an unused consultant with the Lakers. If he goes to the Knicks it would be the Lakers' worst loss of the season.
Asked about the Lakers practicing defense 75% of the time, Lt. Frank Drebin said there was only a 10% chance of that.
With the team practicing defense 75% of the time and their schemes like 90% of the NBA, it's about being gritty and getting into people.
After practice today, Mike D'Antoni spoke about the team's defensive struggles. LA has given up an average of 136 points the last three.
On a positive note, the Lakers are still second in the NBA in pace. Does that mean they get through the losses faster?
Understandable point re: Blake, but I don't remember the Lakers defense being THIS bad when he missed 30 games with the elbow issue.
Mike D'Antoni said losing Steve Blake in trade to Warriors is part of reason Lakers defense has fallen apart..
D'Antoni said Sacre's progress is one of the "little victories" LA needs "to go forward with what the franchise wants to do in the future"
D'Antoni on Bazemore/Brooks struggles: "It’s almost like a Texas gusher where you get the oil & after a few minutes, it’s water coming out"
Ryan Kelly on the Tar Heels: "I still don’t know why they stormed the court. I mean, it’s Duke-Carolina, you can’t storm the court."
I just used the stretch provision to plug in my laptop at Starbucks.
Pau Gasol (L ankle) participated in shoot around Saturday. He's probable for the OKC game, according to D'Antoni.
Pau Gasol took part in shoot-around. Will play tomorrow vs. OKC.
