The Lakers at 50/1 odds are on par with the Heat and better than the Grizzlies. http://t.co/3lgmAP3oCz
CP3 on Nash: " I remember the night before I played him the first time, I couldn't sleep because I wanted to play against him so bad."
CP3 on Nash: "When I came into the NBA, he was the guy I was coming after."
Doc when asked If the team is gonna watch film of great rebounders:"Bill Russell isn't going to walk through the door."
Doc: "we're not gonna win if we don't rebound better."
Doc said the Clips will make a cut tonight or tomorrow morning.
Doc on Cunningham: "He played great, he didn't play perfect tonight but he's going to be a decent player."
Doc Rivers just flat out said that San Antonio is the best team in the West. "Period," he said.
Clippers finish preseason 2-6 after losing to Portland Trail Blazers, 99-89. Real season starts Thursday versus Thunder.
Final: The Clippers lose their final preseason game to the Portland Trail Blazers, 99-89.
Seven consecutive victories for the Ducks. Beat Columbus 4-1
Wayne Ellington has a concussion after colliding with Ben McLenore and, here's that phrase again, will be evaluated again tomorrow.
FINAL: Kings 93, Lakers 92.
After running around the court and celebrating, the Kings each high-five Floyd Mayweather sitting courtside.
The Kings are celebrating as if they won a championship after a buzzer-beating tip-in to beat the Lakers.
If the Kings score, will Byron Scott call a timeout and let Kobe play the final possession?
TIE GAME. BRUH.
After three quarters: Trail Blazers 76, Clippers 64.
Two missed free throws. Again. http://t.co/VMXImQLFPh
Lakers only lead 91-89 with two free throws coming. No overtime, please.
Well, the Lakers are only leading 89-84 with two minutes remaining.
Kupchak said he had to give Nash that third guaranteed year in order to make the deal happen. Called it a "gravy year."
Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak did expect Steve Nash to play in third year when contract was signed. He made big point of talking about it at time.
Ben McLemore is on the floor and bleeding. Floyd Mayweather ran onto the court and knocked him out. Just kidding.
Kobe: "It’s tough to look around at any industry and find anyone that’s been doing anything else for 19 years."
Kobe on Nash: “We’ve both been playing years that we probably should not have been. 19 years is a very, very long time."
Kupchak on Nash: "I think all he knows is that he can’t continue to play... The bottom line is he can’t put it together."
Roscoe Smith's last stand: A technical foul in Vegas, where he wrapped up college career.
Kobe: "He did everything to get back and play at a high level. From that stand point he should be able to sleep at night. I know I would."
Kupchak: “We made a couple of preliminary phone calls, looking into the mechanics of the disabled player exception so we’ll look into that."
Steve Nash moved into 3rd on the all-time assists list in his final reg season game on April 8. The opponent? Dwight Howard & the Rockets
WHAT A DUNK BY ROSCOE’S CHICKEN AND WAFFLES.
Lakers want option of the disabled player exception or possibility of trading Nash to a team looking to dump salary for a expiring contract.
Kupchak sat with Nash's agent, Bill Duffy, to craft the wording on the Nash release yesterday in Vegas. Careful not to mention "retirement."
REGGIE EVANS ALMOST DUNKED ON ROBERT SACRE.
Kupchak: "Will we look to get another backcourt player? I don’t know."
Kupchak: "That third year we kind of felt was a gravy year anyway and didn't take place."
The Lakers signed Nash to a three-year, $27 million contract but never really thought he'd play that third year.
Kupchak on the Nash trade: "That’s part of what it takes to get a player like that. We would do it again."
In a bad sign for the Sacramento Kings, the Lakers' backups have been pretty much sticking it to the Kings' starters the whole game.
I’ve always like DeMarcus Cousins.
Halftime: Portland 54, Clippers 46. Lillard has 18 pts, Kaman has 13. Griffin has 17 pts and only 2 rebounds.
DEMARCUS COUSINS JUST POSTERIZED ROBERT SACRE.
Blake Griffin has 17 points but Clippers trail Trail Blazers, 54-46, at halftime of final preseason game.
LINSANITY: LAS VEGAS.
Some cheers inside Staples Center for Royals score on scoreboard.
Chief Keef with the devastating crossover and jumper on Wiz Khalifa.
Welcome to the preseason, Wes Johnson.
Rudy Gay won't return after getting elbowed in the jaw by Randle. DeMarcus Cousins did *not* like it, telling Randle to watch his elbows.
Floyd Mayweather signing autographs for Lakers fans at halftime. http://t.co/QCGWDktfMi
Floyd Mayweather causing a small riot by going a few rows into the seats and signing autographs at the Laker game. http://t.co/QmquJbDqG8
Clippers rolling out some advanced statistics on the scoreboard: effective field goal percentage and offensive rebound percentage.
DeMarcus really get in Randle's head. Spending all his time complaining that Cous is grabbing too much. Instead, Randle commits off foul
Chris Douglas-Roberts used to make a lot of those slashing moves during the month he averaged like 17 points for the Nets.
Julius Randle will elbow you in the neck if you get in his way. Reminds me of Metta World Peace and it also wasn’t intentional.
Every time Chris Kaman does something worthwhile for Trail Blazers the only thing I can think about is Mike D'Antoni.
Point in the paint: Portland 12, Clippers 4.
Spending time w/my newborns; back 4 opener. Lin/Randle/Davis
Neither team is shooting well. The Clips are shooting 39.1%, the Trail Blazers are shooting 40.9%.
After one quarter: Portland 27, Clippers 21. Griffin leads all scorers with 11 points on 5-for-9 shooting.
Why isn’t Chief Keef back in the game yet? I’d like to see him matchup with Wiz Khalifa.
Lakers games won't be all bad this season. http://t.co/cEjlMLSSqI
Floyd Mayweather arrives at the Lakers game in Vegas fashionably late. http://t.co/HELWG613Xa
We dem boyz.
I’d like to see Roscoe Smith make the team over Wayne Ellington as of October 24 at 8:00 PM.
