Three flights in four days that all leave at 6 or 7 a.m. Not complaining, but WAHHHHH
Doc opened his postgame press conference by asking me about the Kobe practice video. I guess I'm not invited to watch Clippers practices.
Clippers snap two-game skid with 113-91 victory against Pistons.
Final: Clippers 113, Pistons 91.
Chris Douglas-Roberts entered this game with Clippers having scored eight points this season. He has nine tonight.
Chris Douglas-Roberts made his first three-pointer of the season for the Clippers after starting 0 for 6.
After three quarters: Clippers 86, Pistons 63.
Blake Griffin's 3-pointer just put him into fifth place on the Clips' all-time scoring list.
Blake Griffin's three-pointer just moved him past Danny Manning for fifth place on the franchise scoring list.
Jodie Meeks for three. It's been a minute since I've typed that at Staples Center.
The oldest bar in Indy was built in 1850. It's all original (including the bartender) except for the state-of-the-art roof installed in 1890
Clippers lead Pistons, 55-44. Four players in double figures and Griffin needs four rebs and five assist for triple-double. Back on track
Halftime: Clippers 55, Pistons 44. Blake Griffin has 13 points, six rebounds and five assists. DJ has 13 points and nine rebounds.
Whoops. DeAndre Jordan 13 points and J.J. Redick 10.

DeAndre Jordan has four dunks in second quarter.
Clippers lead, 49-38. Pistons looking like the 5-19 team they are
Jordan Farmar with his first miss of the night. He's 5 for 6 with 12 points off the bench.
Behind Farmar (5/6), Redick (5/5) and Griffin (5/8), the Clippers are shooting 60 percent.
Why is Ron Jeremy standing in front of the Pistons' bench? He's been there all game, for some reason.
Jordan Farmar rolling. And he needs to after his start to the season.
Prince Fielder is here too. http://t.co/ceZMDNZvpI
That guy's right thigh is bigger than my living room. BK
After one quarter: Clippers 29, Pistons 27. Clippers are outshooting the Pistons, 66.7% to 42.9%.
Clippers somehow lead Pistons, 29-27, after horrid first quarter.
Farmar buries 3 to give Clippers 29-27 lead, their first.
Lil Wayne just got to his courtside seat. http://t.co/OL7BPE4Vrr
Blake Griffin must pay the rims for these friendly bounces.
Lil Wayne and Khloe Kardashian are at tonight's game. So far, the Cipers are down, 27-24, with 1:27 left in the first.
Griffin entered the game needing 17 pts to move past DManning on Clips all-time scoring list. Not exactly the Kobe watch, but...
Khloe Kardasian is at Staples, but Lamar is nowhere to be found.
Lamar isn't here but Khloe is. http://t.co/Z9QbjDA8O7
Pistons 19, Clippers 10 with 6:17 left in the 1st quarter after Detroit goes on a 9-0 run.
Doc is right: The Clippers' defense needs work. Trail the Pistons, 19-10 at the 6:17 mark of 1st. The 5-19 Pistons for crying out loud
Doc on interest in Ray Allen and/or Jermaine O'Neal. "Count me in for everybody. We’re looking at everything."
The Bears’ collective body language could best be described as “meh.” AK
Clippers are F-L-A-T, especially on defense and effort.
J.J. Redick has made his first four shots for Clippers but they trail Pistons, 12-10.
When I say those Backstage Lakers ratings doubled, it's really not that impressive. It's .14 HH rating versus last year’s .07.
The Clippers No. 1 Fan just took her courtside seat. Ugh.
The ratings for TWC SportsNet's “Backstage: Lakers” episodes have doubled from the same period last season.
One bright spot for Clippers: Their ratings in the highly coveted 18-34 demographic were up 41% over the first 20 games of last season.
Lakers ratings are near the low of 2.11 they averaged all of last season, the worst on record for local telecasts and 54% drop from 2012-13
The Clippers averaged a 1.24 for first 20 games on Prime Ticket, down 16% from the 1.47 they achieved early last season.
The Lakers averaged a 2.25 rating for first 20 games on TWC SportsNet, down 28% from the 3.14 at the start of last season.
Asked about his short piece for the Players' Tribune, Kobe said: "I had a really, really good creative writing teacher."
The Bears offensive line apparently dislikes Jay Cutler as much as Bears fans. AK
Nick Young on Pacers: "They came out like they ain’t had a meal in a long time, ya know, some hungry dogs."
Kobe after blowout in Indy: "Sometimes you gotta pat yourself on the back for doing such an atrocious job."
Doc Rivers said count him in 4 Ray Allen interest. What @ Jermaine O'Neal? "Hey, count me in for everybody. ... We’re looking at everything.
Spencer Hawes out again for Clippers.
Big Baby just sat down and broke his chair in the locker room. No joke just thought I'd pass that along.
Just witnessed Big Baby break the chair by his locker when he sat down.
Ekpe Udoh, upon seeing his clothes hanging in the locker room: "Ha! I love the Clippers! Where's DJ at?"
Blake Griffin on the Ekpe Udoh modern art: "Ya'll should write something about that travesty."

Final: Pacers 110, Lakers 91. LAL fall to 5-8 on the road, snapping the 3-game winning streak.
Jordan Clarkson got a 3 to go in the final minutes. The 2nd round pick is 1 for 4 in the game with 2 assists and a turnover in 12 minutes.
"BLOCK THAT S***" - Carlos Boozer to his son, Robert Sacre. Unfortunately, his son failed to block the shot.
Lakers are down 102-84, but at least Byron is giving Jordan Clarkson some minutes instead of playing Kobe the entire fourth.
About the only bright spot today for LAL: Nick Young, who's 6 of 11 for 18 points (2 of 5 3's, 4 of 4 FT's) plus 3 boards, 1 steal, 1 block.
Bench will close this game out, with Boozer making repeated trips to the foul line (7 of 10 for the game) to reach 11 points. IND up 100-80.
"HEY, FOUL" - Carlos Boozer after Robert Sacre was fouled and stating the obvious to the three refs.
Nick Young has taken almost every shot in the fourth quarter and I love it.
Boozer, who'd been shooting 57% in 4 games off the bench, is 0 for 5 tonight. Lin's also 0 for 5 … and so is Ed Davis. Team at 29.9%.
A pretty Euro step from Nick Young produces his second transition hoop of the 4th, and he pulled up for 3 to reach 14P on 5 of 9 FG's.
I hope Kobe doesn't play a minute in this fourth quarter, so that would require the bench to maintain this deficit.
For Kobe’s safety, it’s very important the second unit fail to cut this deficit. AK
Kobe rested a couple seconds on the scorer’s table after crashing into it, so he should be fine playing the entire fourth quarter. AK
