Mike Trudell

Whiteside tonight: 15 points, 23 rebounds, 4 blocks. Hill's battled him this 4th Q, has 13 points and 10 boards.

Ryan Ward

Hassan Whiteside: 15 points, 23 boards and 4 blocks. Talk about a steal for Miami. Kid is the real deal.

Mike Trudell

2/2: After Hill's reverse under the rim, Whiteside got a layup on the other end, from Wade, to put Miami up 97-94 with 21.3 seconds left.

Gary Lee

Timeout, Lakers. Hassan Whiteside's layup gives the Heat a three point lead with 21.3 seconds remaining.

Bill Oram

And then there was that. RT @Kamenetzky Brothers: That might have been Hill's best play as a Laker. BK

Mike Trudell

1/2: Wow, a huge one-handed alley-oop slam for Whiteside from Wade … then Hill gets a near dunk around Whiteside...

Kamenetzky Brothers

That might have been Hill's best play as a Laker. BK

Kamenetzky Brothers

I don't understand how some people simultaneously diminish the value of 2nd round picks and then get excited about Clarkson. BK

Gary Lee

What a pass from Jeremy Lin to Jordan Hill as Lakers are still trailing by three with 45.0 seconds left.

Bill Oram

That pass was as good of a play as Jeremy Lin has made all season.

Mike Trudell

Wade made a great play to get his own miss on the O glass, and hit both FT's to put MIA back up 3 … but Hill answered on Lin's 9th dime.

Gary Lee

Jordan Clarkson attacked the basket, but took a hard foul from Hassan Whiteside. He made both free throws as Lakers trail by one with 1:44.

Mike Trudell

Clarkson took it strong to the hoop, took a hard foul, but bounced up to hit 2 FT's. LAL back within 1, 1:44 left.

Mike Bresnahan

Wors-case scenario for Lakers these days: Jordan Clarkson taking a hard fall, landing on his back. Just happened vs. Miami but he seems OK.

Kamenetzky Brothers

Quite a serpentine exhibition of pain from Clarkson... BK

Gary Lee

DON'T BE HURT, CLARKSON.

Mike Trudell

Ellington made a nice extra pass to Clarkson under the rim, but Whiteside came over for his 5th block plus 23 boards. MIA up 3, 1:53 left.

Gary Lee

Ed Davis was playing well with 14 points and 12 rebounds, so he gets taken out with 2:20 remaining.

Mike Trudell

Miami aggressively trapped Lin, who's been running LAL's O, and Wade stole the ball from Kelly. Whiteside hit 1 of 2 FT's after Kelly's PF.

Gary Lee

JODIE MEEKS BE LIKE. RT @CountOnVic: Laker legend Jodie Meeks just made a clutch shot if you wanted to know

Gary Lee

Goran Dragic isn't even a Laker yet, but he's helping them win. Because, losing is winning at this point.

Gary Lee

Goran Dragic's three gives Heat a 90-88 lead with 3:19 left in the game.

Mike Trudell

Big 3 from Goran Dragic gets him to 21 points on just 10 shots, putting Miami up 90-88 at the 3:19 mark.

Gary Lee

With four minutes left, Lakers lead 88-87. Do what you have to do, Lakers.

Janis Carr

Doc says there's a chance Blake Griffin could play Sunday. Clippers will practice twice before then

Gary Lee

Hassan Whiteside was about to tackle another player, but realized Ed Davis is my homeboy and backed off.

Mike Trudell

Davis committed a hard foul on Whiteside after an O board, which ends up being smart, as Whiteside missed both FT's (2 for 7 tonight).

Gary Lee

Lakers are limiting him to zero minutes to preserve his legs. RT @NUFAN24: @Gary Lee why doesn't black play anymore?

Mike Trudell

Lin stays hot, up to 12 points with 8 assists + 4 steals to give LAL an 88-85 lead with 5:32 to play. Ellington, Johnson, Hill + Davis in.

Gary Lee

Numbers of game played. RT @6_GAWD: @Gary Lee what are we counting, exactly?

Gary Lee

Wes Johnson, 58.75 --> Activated.

Gary Lee

After missing a dunk, Henry Walker has changed his name back to Bill.

Gary Lee

Nice pass from Jeremy Lin to Ed Davis as Lakers take a 84-80 lead.

Mike Trudell

Ed Davis has been excellent tonight: 15 points and 11 boards after a tough hoop inside. Lin's up to 8 assists, LAL up 84-80 with 7:15 left.

Gary Lee

ED DAVIS IS MY HOMEBOY.

Gary Lee

After a timeout, Lakers draw up a play for a Wesley Johnson three. Lolz.

Gary Lee

Lakers were on Goran Dragic's wishlist at the trade deadline. RT @Aguilassx: @Gary Lee no one wants to play for the lakers 😒

Mike Trudell

Dwyane Wade (18 points through 3 Q's) is tied with LeBron for 4th Q points with 6.9 per night. We'll see when he checks in.

Mike Trudell

With 8:30 to play, we're all square at 80 in Miami. Good game so far, the squads going back and forth towards 8 ties, 5 lead changes.

Gary Lee

Goran Dragic with a strong audition for the Lakers as he has 18 points, four rebounds and six assists already.

Mike Trudell

Dragic has been in LAL's paint all night, now with 18 points and 6 assists on 5 of 9 FG's and 8 of 8 FT's. But LAL hanging, tied at 80.

Gary Lee

Wes Johnson on a 5-0 run as the Lakers tie the game at 78.

Gary Lee

Michael Beasley is like the girl you left and came back to after your #FutureWife left for Cleveland.

Mike Trudell

LAL's starters have had trouble elevating their play as opponents do in 3rd Q. They play hard consistently, just don't have that next gear.

Mike Trudell

Miami outscored LAL 30-22 in the 3rd Q to take a 76-73 lead into the final period. Davis has 12 and 10, Lin 8 and 6 off the pine.

Mike Trudell

LAL are on an 11-2 run, after Ellington put back a Lin miss, then found Lin for a 3. Lin has 9 points and 6 assists, Ellington 13 and 3.

Gary Lee

After Jeremy Lin's three, Lakers only trail by one with 44.4 left in the third.

Gary Lee

Hassan Whiteside with a technical foul and his 'emotion' rating will increase after next NBA 2K update.

Mike Trudell

Same story for LAL in the 3rd: starters give up a run, subs start to bring them back. Lin/Davis have LAL within 4.

Gary Lee

Hassan Whiteside was on the floor and the Lakers predictably turned the ball over with a 5-on-4 advantage.

Mike Trudell

Ed Davis has been effective in his 17 bench minutes, with 12 points and 10 boards. Meanwhile, Kelly hit an and-1 3 into a time out.

Gary Lee

Well, Lakers are down by 10.

Mike Trudell

Whiteside has 10 points, 15 boards and 4 blocks in his 23 minutes, controlling the paint and helping MIA to a 67-59 lead.

Gary Lee

Another career-night for Jordan Clarkson as he has seven rebounds to go along with eight points.

Gary Lee

WAYNE ELLINGTON TRIED TO DUNK ON THE HEAT. NICE TRY.

Gary Lee

After leading by seven early in the third, Lakers now trail by four.

Mike Trudell

Whiteside is grabbing all of the rebounds (13), and Miami's scoring in transition to take their biggest lead at 63-57 behind a 15-2 run.

Gary Lee

Dwyane Wade thought he threw an alley-oop from halfcourt to LeBron James, but it was Udonis Haslem.

Bill Oram

The whole point of a jump hook is that it's supposed to be unblockable. Not for Whiteside. Stuffs Sacre THEN feeds Dragic from 80 feet.

Gary Lee

Ronda Rousey recently defended her title in 14 seconds, but Robert Sacre picked up two fouls in less time. That's pretty impressive, guys.

Mike Trudell

A quick Heat run has the home team back in front, capped by a Whiteside swat and ensuing Dragic layup to make it 57-55 Heat. T.O., LAL.

Janis Carr

Jamal Crawford and Matt Barnes are out tonight

Gary Lee

Jordan Clarkson's three gives the Lakers a 55-48 lead early in the third.

Mike Trudell

Jordan Clarkson drained a 3 in rhythm on a catch-and-shoot chance, reaching 8 points w/6 boards, 4 dimes, LAL up 55-48.

Gary Lee

Yeah, I can confirm this tweet. RT @kezhiabarba: @Gary Lee and missed the second ft

Gary Lee

I'm done with this season. Carlos Boozer just went coast-to-coast and missed the layup, but was fouled.

Gary Lee

Second half is underway. #Lakers

Ramona Shelburne

Stay until the end where @iamBenLyons tries to recruit @Metta World Peace to his rec ball tea this weekend youtu.be/8nV6GDt0et0

Melissa Rohlin

Jamal Crawford and Matt Barnes are out tonight.

Gary Lee

Apologies. I'm a little rusty after not tweeting last night and I've been tweeting 'trail' for most of the season.

Gary Lee

--> RT @TheeCoreyH: Clearly Hubie Brown hasn’t watched the Lakers this year if he thinks Boozer is exaggerating the height of his shot.

Mike Trudell

LAL were hot from the field in the 1st half, shooting 58% to take a 51-46 lead into the break. Ellington and Boozer had 12 points apiece.

Mike Trudell

Make it 12 1st half points for Boozer, who scored at the rim to counter a Luol Deng (his fellow Dukie) bucket.

Mike Trudell

Boozer's scoring the ball well again, up to 10 1st half points (15 last night in 3 Q's) to keep LAL up 49-44 with 1:40 left in the 2nd.

Gary Lee

Wayne Ellington with the behind-the-back dribble and three as Lakers lead 45-42 with 2:27 left in the first half.

Gary Lee

Hassan Whiteside already with seven points and eight rebounds and will ask for another rating boost on NBA 2K after the game, probably.

Mike Trudell

Jeremy Lin's up to 6 assists with his 5 points in 12 minutes, LAL leading 42-38 late in the 2nd Q.

Gary Lee

Midway through 2, Lakers are on an 8-0 run as they lead 37-34 in Miami.

Gary Lee

Jordan Hill reacted to a pump-fake by Chris Andersen at the three-point line.

Mike Trudell

A 6-0 LAL run capped by Wesley Johnson's 3 has LAL up 35-34 almost midway through the 2nd. Ed Davis had 8 points, 6 boards off the bench.

Ryan Ward

Lin remains aggressive & is starting to show he can drop some dimes. Showing his true colors. #Lakers

Ryan Ward

I keep expecting Jeremy Lin to hit a wall & revert back to his bad habits, but it ain’t happening. Lin is doing everything well out there.

Gary Lee

Jeremy Lin is off to another strong start with five points and four assists.

Mike Trudell

J. Lin (18.0 ppg on 51.3% FG's + 35.0% 3's; 5.5 apg; 3.3 rpg; 1.3 spg; 28.2 mpg post All-Star) hit a fading J for the 1st hoop of the 2nd Q.

Mike Trudell

Whiteside had 15 points, 9 boards and 5 blocks vs. LAL in January, his 2nd breakout game. He has 7 points and 7 boards after 1 Q. MIA up 3.

Mike Trudell

Clarkson continues to play well, his 2nd assist getting Davis a dunk, and Lin got him a layup (3rd assist) on the next trip. Heat up 27-25.

Gary Lee

Heat Nation still exists? RT @_aroyalove: @Gary Lee but y'all are trash! playoffs this yr?? Oh ok #HeatNation http://t.co/m9f7q7t4dL

Gary Lee

Jordan Clarkson over-dribbled there, but another good matchup for him against #FutureLaker, Goran Dragic.

Gary Lee

Jeremy Lin's alley-oop to Jordan Clarkson followed by Carlos Boozer's dunk gives Lakers a one point lead.

Mike Trudell

Boozer's 3rd bucket came on Lin's 2nd assist upon checking in, putting LAL back on top at 20-19 into a 20-second Heat time out.

Gary Lee

Goran Dragic wanted to wear No. 18 to honor Sasha Vujacic. Since that number wasn't available, he went with No. 7 because 8-1 = 7 and #Math.

Gary Lee

After a timeout, Heat have gone on a 11-2 run as they lead Lakers, 15-13.

Mike Trudell

Miami went on a 9-0 run out of the time out to claim a 13-11 lead, capped by an and-1 from Hassan Whiteside.

Gary Lee

As a way to confuse the Heat, Carlos Boozer/Robert Sacre are strategically wearing gold sleeves on their right arms. It's working so far.

Gary Lee

Four minutes into the game, Heat call a timeout as Lakers take an early 11-4 lead. Wayne Ellington has five.
