Kobe Bryant played 35 minutes and Byron Scott says he will continue to “tinker” with his minutes via @TheeCoreyH. lakersnation.com/byron-scott-wi…

Ryan Ward

Nick Young: “I’ve just got to learn how to work off the ball.”

Ryan Ward

Nick Young on shooting struggles: “I’ll be alright.”

Mike Trudell

Scott thought it worked out fine getting a few extra minutes of rest for Kobe. Will continue to see how that goes, how Bryant responds.

Ryan Ward

Byron: “Sometimes I think we settle for the jumpshot too much.”

Ryan Ward

Byron Scott on Grizzlies: “They’re a very good defensive team. You’ve got to give them credit.”

Mike Trudell

Scott credited the Memphis defense for LAL’s struggles on that end (40.7%). Said they fight through every screen, never give easy looks.

Bill Oram

By the way, Nick Young didn't exactly break that slump. Shot 4-of-14 from the field.

Gary Lee

Thanks for tuning in tonight, #LakersNation. Follow me on my personal account @DanDuangdao and yeah, live by Kobe. Die by Kobe.

Bill Oram

Kobe Bryant shoots 5-of-15 and makes 10 free throws, despite not even attempting a shot until three minutes before halftime.

Bill Oram

Lakers (3-12) have lost three straight, their third such streak already this season.

Kevin Ding

Lakers are now 1-7 at home this season.

Gary Lee

INSTANT RECAP: Third quarter issues reappear as Lakers suffer their 12th loss of the season to the Grizzlies, 99-93. lakersnation.com/game-recap-thi…

Mike Trudell

Johnson 2 for 5, Boozer 2 for 6, Hill 5 for 12, Kobe 5 for 15, Lin 4 for 9, Young 4 for 14. Rough shooting game against a tough MEM D.

Kevin Ding

Stellar game from Marc Gasol in multiple facets. Kobe (5 of 15) doesn't find his rhythm. Final: MEM 99, LAL 93.

Mike Trudell

LAL couldn't buy a bucket down the stretch, missing all but 1 of their final 11 shots, as MEM takes a 99-93 win out of Staples.

Gary Lee

Live by Kobe. Die by Kobe.

Mike Trudell

Marc Gasol took over the 2nd half, getting the key stop with a steal of Bryant's attempted pass with 15.9 left. Has 19P, 11R, 4A, 3B, 2S.

Gary Lee

Jeremy Lin wasted a lot of time trying to set up the offense and Kobe eventually turned the ball over. 99-93, Grizzlies.

Gary Lee

Agreed. RT @Bme_boss: I would have preferred ronnie price finish the game @Gary Lee

Mike Trudell

Kobe didn't look set on a transition 3, and was well off, LAL thus staying down by 4 with 48.9 seconds now on the clock.

Gary Lee

HOW WAS THAT A FOUL, REF.

Gary Lee

90 seconds left in the game and the Lakers trail 97-93 after Jeremy Lin makes only one of his free-throws.

Gary Lee

Marc Gasol is perhaps the best center in the game right now. #Analysis

Mike Trudell

After just 3 points and 3 boards in the first half, Marc Gasol's has 16 and 7 in the 2nd for 19 and 10 total. Has controlled this MEM push.

Gary Lee

#Analysis. RT @Mark Medina: Kobe has been hounding the officials all quarter as if he's a lobbyist twisting a congressman's arm

Mike Trudell

Nick Young drew Leuer's foul attempting a 3, and drained all 3 FT's to cut the Grizz margin to 95-92 w/2:15 to play.

Mike Trudell

Jon Leuer's played well off the MEM bench, and Zach Randolph has not played in the 4th Q with 2:15 to play. Zebo had 16 and 9 in 3 Q's.

Gary Lee

Nick Young draws the foul on a three-pointer as Lakers trail 95-89 with 2:15 left. Should’ve been a four-point play, Swaggy P.

Mike Trudell

Reason for limiting Kobe's PT even a little at end of 1st/3rd is for better legs late. Kobe looked good on a driving score w/3 min. left.

Gary Lee

What a move by Kobe there. 93-89 with less than three minutes left.

Gary Lee

Yeah, Mike Conley just passed the ball to me in the stands.

Gary Lee

Lakers trail by two with 4:28 remaining and I’m going to need Wes Johnson 15.0 to be activated during this timeout.

Mike Trudell

Grizz are resting Gasol and Randolph still as LAL come back, with 4:28 to go. Randolph yet to return in 4th as Koufos remains in.

Gary Lee

Midway through 4, Lakers trail 89-87 as Kobe leads the team with 20 points (4/10 shooting). Check the highlights. lakersnation.com/los-angeles-la…

Mike Trudell

Ed Davis has been really good defensively (8R, 3B) in these last several minutes as LAL carve into the MEM lead. It's 89-87 w/5:00 to go.

Mike Trudell

An Ed Davis block (his 3rd) leads into a Nick Young J (his 4th FG, but in 13 FGA's). Kobe's back at the 7:53 mark, LAL down 4.

Janis Carr

Big applause for Kobe coming back into the game. Or was it for Wes Johnson?

Gary Lee

With Kobe resting, Ronnie Price is keeping the Lakers within striking distance in the final quarter. This is a real and serious tweet.

Mike Trudell

With Jeremy Lin quiet in the 2nd half (all 13 of his points and 4 of 5 assists in the 1st), Ronnie Price has stepped up w/9P, 5A.

Gary Lee

I’m going to tell my grandchildren about Ronnie Price’s legendary game against the Grizzlies one day.

Gary Lee

Ronnie Price is my friend.

Mike Trudell

Nick Young blocked his 2nd, and LAL's 8th shot, and Ronnie Price responded w/consecutive buckets at the rim to cut the Grizz lead back to 2.

Gary Lee

Wayne Ellington struggled with his shot during the preseason, but it seems like he’s making all his wide open jumpers now. #Analysis

Gary Lee

Ha, I laughed out loud. RT @imsohideouss: The Grizzlies ended the 3rd quarter on a 80-74 run.

Mike Trudell

Memphis closed the 3rd Q on an 8-3 run, enough to take an 80-74 lead into the 4th. Gasol had 6 of the 8, capitalizing on Sacre's PF's.

Gary Lee

At the end of 3, Lakers trail 80-74 as they gave up 34 points. Kobe had 10 in the quarter, so check the highlights. lakersnation.com/los-angeles-la…

Mike Trudell

Robert Sacre just gave Gasol 4 straight FT's trying to get offensive boards with LAL in the bonus. Allowed MEM a 78-71 lead late in 3rd.

Gary Lee

He’s a combination of Iverson and Westbrook. RT @TheeCoreyH: idk who Ronnie Price thinks he is right now, but he needs to calm down...

Janis Carr

Kobe sits for final 1:30 of third quarter. Has 18 points on 4 of 10 shooting and 8/8 FTs -- so far

Mike Trudell

My previous tweet was wrong - Scott called Kobe over at the 1:30 mark, putting Wayne Ellington in.

Mike Trudell

Byron Scott sticks with the same formula from the 1st Q after all, stealing Kobe almost 2 more minutes of rest.

Gary Lee

Kobe has 10 points in the third quarter and with 1:30 remaining, Byron Scott should consider resting him right now.

Mike Trudell

Courtney Lee is 2nd in the NBA in 3-point %, though just hit his 1st in 4 attempts. Swaggy P answered w/his own triple to make it 69-all.

Bill Oram

We find ourselves enjoying a shootout between... the Lakers and Grizzlies?

Bill Oram

Pretty sure the same guy who has been offering Kobe "MVP" chants just yelled, "Courtney's a girl's name" after that Lee 3.

Gary Lee

“My hands is hot” - Kobe Bryant. RT @TWCSportsNet: http://t.co/jKiSIVAuLO

Mike Trudell

The rare time Kobe is uncovered and gets a clean look is usually going down. He got a wide open 3 in transition, and hit again. 66-64 LAL.

Janis Carr

Kobe with a couple of three's, his second gives Lakers 66-64 lead.

Mike Trudell

Kobe's first 3-point attempt of the night is a make from the right wing, putting LAL up 63-62. LAL 4 for 7 on 3's, MEM 2 for 12.

Gary Lee

Midway through 3, it’s all tied up at 60 as Marc Gasol has taken over. Check out the highlights from tonight’s game. lakersnation.com/los-angeles-la…

Mike Trudell

8 of Kobe's 10 pts have come at the FT line tonight. He's taken 5 FGA's, making only 1, though he had a good argument for PF's on 2 misses.

Ryan Ward

It’s trip how skinny Marc Gasol looks in comparison to his first few years in the league. Went through a Kevin Love-like transformation.

Mike Trudell

LAL's once 9-point lead is gone, the Grizz using an 8-1 run to open a 60-58 lead, thanks in part to Lakers turnovers (4 in the quarter).

Bill Oram

Kobe throws into double coverage, pass intended for Jordan Hill. That will be me in tomorrow's Turkey Bowl at the @Janis Carr residence.

Ryan Ward

Marc Gasol has turned it up a notch in the 2nd half. Scoring at will on Jordan Hill right now.

Gary Lee

Mike Conley is perhaps the most underrated point guard in the league.

Mike Trudell

Despite a baseline miss, Jeremy Lin's been shooting the ball well tonight (4 of 7) and this season (48.7%).

Gary Lee

Marc Gasol went coast-to-coast before getting fouled. Fantastic defense there, Lakers.

Mike Trudell

LAL did a good job with Marc Gasol in the 1st half: just 3 points, 3 boards, 2 assists. His 2 FT's get MEM w/in 5 early in the 3rd.

Ryan Ward

Marc Gasol running the floor like a guard out there. Impressive.

Mike Trudell

Kobe appeared to jam a finger trying to make a pass, resulting in a turnover and MEM 2 on the other end. He's shaking it off, seems fine.

Gary Lee

Second half is underway and if the Lakers outscore the Grizzlies this half, they will win.

Ryan Ward

Nick Young got off to a quick start, but cooled off. Currently 2-for-7 with 5 points. Played almost 12 mins (11:47) in the 1st half.

Mike Trudell

LAL have 7 blocks in that 1st half, led by the 2 from Ed Davis. Out-boarded MEM 27-22.

Ryan Ward

Lakers shot 44.2% from the floor in the 1st half (19-for-43). Remarkably, 50% from 3-point range (only six attempts, though).

Ryan Ward

Ed Davis: 5 rebs, 2 pts (1-for-2), 2 blks in 9 mins. Carlos Boozer: 5 rebs, 2 pts (1-for-4) in 15 mins. So far: Davis > Boozer #Efficient

Mike Trudell

LAL end a solid overall first half with 2 Kobe FT's to provide a 51-46 margin. Lin had 13 and 4, LAL D held MEM to 40% FG's.

Gary Lee

At the end of 2, Lakers are winning 51-46 as Jeremy Lin leads all scorers with 13 points. Check out the highlights. lakersnation.com/los-angeles-la…

Janis Carr

Lakers 51-46 at the half. A victory in the making? No. 4 on the way?

Ryan Ward

Simple plays getting harder and harder for Carlos Boozer. Matter of time before he’s bench in favor of Ed Davis?

Mike Trudell

Quick 6-0 Grizz run (Zebo's and-1 following a Lee jumper plus the tech FT on Kobe) snapped by another Lin jumper. He's got 13, LAL up 5.

Gary Lee

After picking up a technical foul, Kobe is one away from being ejected from the game.

Mike Trudell

Kobe didn't get a foul call (looked like he got his on the arm), and got a technical for complaining about it. LAL up 47-41.

Janis Carr

Kobe, thinking he got fouled, gets a tech for arguing after shot clock ran out.

Bill Oram

Kobe still arguing his case. Already picked up a technical. Presumably savvy enough not to get two.

Gary Lee

That’s deep. RT @SerenaWinters: Fan on Lakers jumbotron holds up a poster of Kobe that reads: "A real king never abandons his kingdom."
