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.
Jared Cunningham and Jordan Farmar about to check in for Clippers. That's early for Cunningham.
You can’t handle Randle, Kings.
Officially, the Lakers have 17 players on the roster. But due to injuries, players held out, only four remain on the bench.
WIZ KHALIFA GOT HIGH ON THAT DUNK ON THE LAKERS.
Matt Barnes just gave a shout-out to Lil Chris seated on the baseline during a free throw.
Not sure if Derrick Williams or Wiz Khalifa on the Kings tonight.
J.J. Redick gets technical for Clippers. Sounded like he said "and one" on last drive to basket.
Ronnie Price is done for the night with a sore right knee. Drew a charge on Collison, bumped knees. Price will be re-evaluated tomorrow.
Ronnie Price has a "sore right knee" and will not return. He will be re-evaluated tomorrow.
Ronnie Price won't return tonight due to a sore right knee. Will be reevaluated tomorrow.
Lakers are attacking the paint tonight. Nice finishes by Jeremy Lin and Julius Randle. 32-27, Lakers.
Apologies, I’m just used to typing “trailing” at the end of each quarter. It’s preseason, though.
After talking to Gary Vitti, Ronnie Price went back to the locker room. His right knee was still heavily taped.
Lakers Point guard jinx?
Ramon Sessions getting booed loudly by the Lakers fans here.
According to my eyes, Lakers have committed seven of their eight fouls on DeMarcus Cousins.
Somewhere out there tonight, Travis Knight is smiling. Because Robert Sacre’s four fouls in 10 minutes.
ROBERT SACRE HAS FOUR FOULS IN THE FIRST QUARTER AND IT’S NOT EVEN OVER. NOT SURPRISED.
Julius Randle just bit on a DeMarcus Cousins ball fake like it was a Snickers bar.
Robert Sacre has three fouls in nine minutes. His new nickname will be Travis Knight.
Lakers and Kings great Mitch Richmond is here on press row but no Floyd "Money" Maywather sightings yet.
Doc Rivers said Steve Nash changed the game of basketball: "I think the great ones, they make the game different. I think Nash did that"
Robert Sacre is out of the game. Maybe the Lakers have a chance now.
Injuries getting even more ridiculous. Ronnie Price on the bench with a huge pack of ice on his knee. Knocked knees with Darren Collison.
Ronnie Price's right knee is heavily taped and he continues to grab it and wince in pain.
Maybe Ramon Sessions left the Lakers because as a point guard, he was considered about the risks to his health. AK
Ronnie Price is on the bench, grabbing his right leg, which is now heavily taped. He looks to be in a lot of pain at the end of the bench.
Can Robert Sacre bring the ball up? Asking for a friend.
Ronnie Price is hurt. The point guard curse continues.
Ed Davis - 2, Kings - 0.
Wes Johnson with the travel on the Lakers’ first possession. BRUH.
Kupchak was vague about Lakers plans as far as trying to sign another player. "Will we look to get another backcourt player? I don’t know."
Kupchak: "Expectations with [Nash] were so high, and so I’m sure he’s disappointed about that. But it doesn’t take away from a great career"
Lakers not looking to add another PG at this time. They like Lin, are pleased with Ronnie Price. And of course, there's the rookie, Clarkson
Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak said he and Bill Duffy, Steve Nash's agent, met yesterday in Las Vegas to finalize Nash's decision to step away.
Doc Rivers on Spurs: "Until someone figures out a way of beating them, I don’t really want to talk about any other teams."
Doc Rivers on Steve Nash: "I think the great ones, they make the game different."
Doc Rivers on Steve Nash: "He reminds me a lot of Isiah and Stockton, those smaller point guards that had big hearts and did a lot of stuff.
Jordan Farmar back for Clippers.
Jamal Crawford is sitting tonight bc of hamstring soreness. Jordan Farmar is available to play.
LaMarcus Aldridge out for Trail Blazers, Jamal Crawford out for Clippers. Both expected to be ready for opener.
Doc Rivers said what he said about Steve Nash after complimenting him for five minutes.
Kobe said Mitch Kupchak called him to inform him that Nash would not play this season.
Just said it yesterday on air. Lorenzo Cain could be marketed into a huge star by the league. Huge potential that way. AK
Asked where Nash will rank among point guards in history, Kobe said, "That's ESPN's job to rank people."
Kobe on Nash: "He dealt with it his whole career. It just caught up to him." http://t.co/Vk7nzF5cC9
Doc Rivers on Steve Nash: "He's 40 years old. What the hell does he expect?"
Why is Julius Randle not staring? Good question. Byron Scott isn't ready to lean on the rookies yet.
Kobe just arrived to the locker room. He's not playing but he's fine.
Kobe Bryant, Carlos Boozer and Jordan Hill are out for the Lakers. Ronnie Price, Ed Davis and Robert Sacre will start.
Outside the Lakers locker room at the MGM. http://t.co/hLBrophIPw
Byron still hasn't spoken with Nash but hopes the 40 yr old will take on a mentorship role around the team
Kobe, Boozer and Hill not playing tonight. Sacre and Ed Davis get the starts at C and PF vs. Sacramento.
Huge shoutout to @rosclod54 for giving up the @billoram handle. New hero.
