Clippers knew that the Hornets would try and come out strong tonight. They dont want to lose a 6th consecutive game.
Halftime: Clippers 56, Hornets 53. Not the score they had hoped for.
Chris Paul has 10 points and 9 assists at halftime as Clippers lead Hornets, 56-53.
You knew Chris Paul was going to come back after that play.
The Lakers aren't exactly young but you can't blame age for the injuries when you're talking about Randle (19), Henry (23) and Kelly (23).
Lakers players missed a league-high 319 games last season. They could break that this season with Nash, Randle & Henry missing 236 combined.
Al Jefferson jump hook ties score at 38-38 before three-pointer by Jamal Crawford puts Clippers back up.
Clippers having a VERY sloppy quarter so far. Chris Paul back in.
Doc Rivers wouldn't engage on Kobe vs. MJ debate. "We still have to play Kobe. I’ll make my thing when they’re all out and can’t hurt you."
Asked who was better, Kobe Bryant or Michael Jordan, Doc Rivers said, "I’ve always though Kobe was much…nah." He was joking.
Doc Rivers was asked before the game what Jordan Farmar can improve on. "Everything," Doc said.
Turn back the clock Hedo.
Three quick fouls for Spencer Hawes. DeAndre Jordan coming back in.
Not a good sequence for Spencer Hawes, who misses three-pointer, commits a foul and picks up a technical for complaining.
In Reggie Bullock's first NBA career start he had 0 points, 0 assists and 0 rebounds in 7 mins and 19 secs of play.
After one quarter: Clippers 31, Hornets 23. Blake has 10 points and 4 rebounds. Last game against Memphis, he had 4 rebounds all game.
Clippers lead Hornets, 31-23, after end of first quarter. This game has the feel of a blowout in the making.
Jordan Farmar playing WITH Chris Paul. Haven't seen this much.
Henry suffered the injury at this morning’s practice and will have surgery tomorrow morning with Dr. Neal ElAttrache and Dr. Steve Lombardo.
The Lakers confirm Xavier Henry did suffer a ruptured Achilles, and will likely miss this season. Surgery tomorrow. AK
An MRI confirmed LAL’s fear that Xavier Henry ruptured his left Achilles tendon. He’ll have surgery tomorrow and miss the rest o/t season.
Lakers guard Xavier Henry suffered a ruptured left Achilles tendon and will have surgery tomorrow. He will miss the remainder of the season.
Xavier Henry will have surgery tomorrow morning to repair his torn Achilles' tendon. He will likely miss the rest of the season, Lakers say.
Michael Jordan is at the Hornets-Clippers game
Lady in corner of Time Warner Arena yells, "Baby! Baby!" and Glen Davis acknowledges her with a big smile. Gotta love him.
After scoring only 12 points yesterday, Blake Griffin already has 8 points w 3 mins and 24 seconds left in the 1st quarter. Clips up, 18-12.
Lakesr make it official. Xavier Henry out for the season with ruptured Achilles. Will have surgery tomorrow.
Spurs-ian ball movement results in Jamal Crawford three-pointer.
Reggie Bullock has badly missed a corner three-pointer and airballed a 26-footer in early going of first career start.
Galen Center might be louder than Time Warner Cable Arena. It's that bad.
Clippers are very dangerous when DeAndre Jordan and J.J. Redick get involved offensively early in game.
That Blake Griffin dunk was vintage. Like a 1982 Lafite Rothschild.
Buzz is supposed to be back for Hornets but Time Warner Cable Arena is half full for tip-off.
First career start for Reggie Bullock.
The greatest coach in recent Lakers history, Bernie Bickerstaff, is two seats over from me inside Time Warner Cable Arena.
Doc Rivers said what bothered him most in his team's loss to Memphis yesterday was "defensive discipline" per the Fox broadcast
Matt Barnes' calf injury was reason he wasn't aggressive after nine-point first quarter versus Grizzlies.
Matt Barnes said calf has been bothering him since Portland and he aggravated in second quarter vs. Grizzlies.
Matt Barnes out at least a couple of days with sore calf. Reggie Bullock starting for Clippers.
In column, Kobe calls that shot one he makes "in my sleep." After missing last night, he called it a shot he "practiced my entire career."
Kobe wasn't doubled but missed. The situation/shot reminded me of Phil spreading the floor in MIL in 2009 to keep Kobe from being doubled.
I was just talking to Kobe a few days ago about there now always being a camera recording what he says...
Andrew Friedman making moves. Now if he can get a new elevator at Dodger Stadium....
Poor Xavier Henry. Possibly a torn Achilles. Happened in practice.
Lakers are in contact with NBA officials about roster possibilities now that three players are almost surely done for or the season.
Real rough injury run since Kobe's Achilles tear: 319 games missed in 2013-14, potentially 3 players out for 2014-15 (Randle, Nash, Henry).
Presuming Xavier Henry’s Achilles is ruptured as Lakers believe, would likely be Lakers third season-ending injury. It’s November.
Xavier Henry might have torn his left Achilles' tendon. Happened at practice today. MRI exam going on now.
Then again, the bad trade helped New Orleans have a bad season which ultimately led to Anthony Davis so everyone still wins. Well, almost.
The nixed 3-way deal with LAL, HOU & NO would have sent Kevin Martin, Luis Scola, Lamar Odom, Goran Dragic & 1st round pick to New Orleans.
Eric Gordon & Austin Rivers are the remaining pieces of the Chris Paul trade in New Orleans. Chris Kaman & Al-Farouq Aminu have since left.
After 15 years at L.A. Times, will get my first dateline from my home state today. Weird considering I have ones from Hawaii and Alaska.
Great place to grab quick bite at ORD. http://t.co/IkpXkGkOOz
If Kobe stick to his season average of 26.7 points he’ll pass MJ on Dec, 12 in San Antonio.
