Byron on Kobe’s second half performance: “Tells me his legs are coming back”
Byron Scott told the team: “we’re close.”
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.
You had one job, Wes. http://t.co/wKfXoFO85t
Game time. Suns win, 114-108
The second three by Wes stands. 109-108, Suns. 44.9 left.
Wes’ last shot will be reviewed.
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
I. Thomas insists on looking at Floyd Mayweather after every basket. Got a little Reggie Miller-Spike Lee action going.
Kobe is done for the night with Lakers trailing 105-102 with less than two minutes left in overtime.
Gerald Green was actually waived by the Lakers a few years back. LA actually signed Wes Johnson, twice. Bad move, bruh.
Wes Johnson makes a three AFTER PJ Tucker fouls Kobe. Of course.
Kobe nails a jumper. Game tied. 96 apiece
Wes Johnson not helping matters in OT. Fouls Gerald Green. Two shots.
Because Wes Johnson. http://t.co/rXGDOcNedz
Lakers: Price, Kobe, Wes, Boozer and Hill to start OT.
Jeremy Lin fouled out meaning Ronnie Price will likely be running the point in OT.
OVERTIME. Thomas hits the game-tying bucket and then stares at Floyd Mayweather courtside.
Overtime in Anaheim. The only good thing about that is that it rhymes.
GIVE THE BALL TO KOBE, CHIEF KEEF.
THAT WAS NOT A FOUL.
Lin fouls I. Thomas. Fouls out of the game. Ellington in for Lin.
Ronnie Price checked in for Carlos Boozer. Lakers: Price, Lin, Kobe, Wes and Hill
Kobe hits both free throws. Lakers up three, 94-91. 12.8 left.
Pretty damn good for the 40th best player in the NBA.
Lakers up 1. Kobe to the line for 2. 92-91. 12.8 secs left.
Little smile from Kobe after he buries that tough, tough turnaround J to put the Lakers up 92-91 in the final minute.
Three straight baskets for Kobe. Lakers up 1.
Jared Cunningham tomahawk dunk. Didn't see that coming.
Kobe does it again. Lakers up 2, 90-88. About a min left.
DON’T PASS THE BALL ANYMORE, KOBE. SHOOT IT EVERY SINGLE POSSESSION.
Kobe hits the game-tying jumper and this place is finally alive. 88 all.
KOBE TIES THE GAME.
Possible starters for Oct. 28 on the floor right now: Lin, Kobe, Wes, Boozer and Hill
LINSANITY: LOS ANGELES.
WES JOHNSON. BRUH.
No one saw that airball, Kobe.
Jeremy Lin makes a three. Those “M-V-P” chants make sense now.
Really like this lineup: Lin, Kobe, Ellington, Randle and Davis…. And Lin drains a three.
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.
ED DAVIS FOR MVP.
LIN TO ED!
Halftime: Warriors 62, Clippers 60. Redick leads all scorers with 18 points.
Jeremy Lin back in the game with Ellington, Smith, Randle and Davis to start the 4th.
Doc Rivers picks up second technical foul of preseason after saying he never had one before this season. Argued about non-call on Cunningham
"I been ballin' so damn hard, I swear I think that I'm Kobe” - Chief Keef AKA Wes Johnson.
Spencer Hawes may turn DeAndre Jordan into an assist man.
I’d like to see Jeremy Lin play with this group rather than Ronnie Price. Definitely gets more going offensively.
Wes Johnson’s new nickname will be Chief Keef.
Matt Barnes ticker: now 3/29 and 1/17 on threes.
Surely Doc's least favorite stat of the game: The Clips are being outrebounded, 20-12. They've been outrebounded in every exhibition game.
Wes Johnson practiced with Kobe the entire summer. Therefore, Wes Johnson thinks he’s Kobe.
Redick has 11 points on 4-for-8 shooting. This Clippers team really has a lot of weapons.
HEY GUYZ, CARLOS BOOZER JUST MADE A JUMP SHOT.
DeAndre Jordan with the entry pass to Spencer Hawes, who is fouled on the layup. Really like the look this duo presents for Clippers.
Wes Johnson just doesn’t have a feel for passing the bball. Quite a few bad dishes tonight.
Kobe takes it to the bucket. Scores the layup increases his total to a game-high 15. Lakers still down by three, 64-61.
Lob City - Crawford to DJ.
Carlos Boozer is looking like himself again -- if only he played the Jazz every night.
The Warriors, who trailed by 7, are on an 11-0 run. They're up, 38-35.
“MY HANDS IS HOT” - KOBE.
Kobe heating up to start the 2nd half. 9 points thus far.
The Clippers have had 17 free throw attempts this game. The Warriors have only had four.
"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.
Lakers held the Suns to 39 percent in the first half, so there’s that.
Jared Cunningham had eight points to help the Clippers take a 33-27 lead over Warriors going into second quarter.
After one quarter: Clippers 33, Warriors 27.
Jamal Crawford serving as the backup point guard with Chris Paul (rest) and Jordan Farmar (back) out.
Crawford draws the foul on a three-point attempt. He's a master at that.
Jamal Crawford sells the foul so well on three-pointers it seems as if falling down/away is part of his follow-through.
Jordan Hill's jump shot influences include Andre Miller. AK
Jordan Hill just made another jump shot and during the off-season, he took 1,000 of them because Kobe told him to.
Jared Cunningham making some nice plays in first quarter for Clippers.
Floyd Mayweather loves the KissCam.
Barnes drives down the lane, is fouled, and converts the layup. He needed that three-point play. Bad.
One make just boosted Matt Barnes to 10.7% shooting accuracy.
Lakers take the lead on Kobe’s second free throw, 38-37.
Matt Barnes misses again. Now making 7.4% of his shots in the preseason.
HEY GUYZ, WES JOHNSON JUST MADE A JUMP SHOT.
Wes Johnson… Yes, Wes Johnson hits a three to tie the game at 34.
