Halftime: Clippers 50, Nuggets 47. The Clips came back from a 16-pt deficit.
DeAndre The Giant. AK
DJ with back-to-back blocks. He's second in the league in blocked shots, averaging 2.4 a game.
DeAndre Jordan may not make the all-star team but he's showing why he should get serious consideration this quarter.
Wow. DJ just slammed the ball from behind.
After trailing by 16, the Clippers just took their first lead of the game, 46-45, after a great give-and-go from Blake to CP back to Blake.
The Nuggets have led by as much as 16. The Nuggets lead by nine now, 33-24, with 9:44 left in first half.
The NFL has video footage in connection with DeflateGate. Clearly it didn't come from a casino elevator, or they wouldn't have bothered. BK
Brian Shaw on Kobe: "I don't think he wants to go out the way he's out now, on that note."
The Clippers are campaigning for Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan to be all-stars. http://t.co/97YR6RqdN9
Just remembered Atlanta can swap first round picks with Brooklyn this year. BK
Lamar Odom sighting in L.A.! Or at least his jersey. At a wine store, of all places. http://t.co/c8mevYmjxm
The Lakers return to Hawaii for training camp. They have held training camp in Hawaii 12 times from 1988 to 2007. http://t.co/7dXciOvCuD
The Lakers' new recruiting pitch to free agents: "Oh, did we mention training camp is in Hawaii?"
Lakers are returning to Jerry Buss' beloved Honolulu for training camp in 2015. First time since 2007.
It's the 13th time the Lakers have taken their training camp to Hawaii, first 12 were between 1988 and 2007.
And in news probably far more exciting to beat writers than fans, Lakers announce they'll return to Hawaii for training camp this year.
Source: Kobe will also be active in free-agent recruiting for the Lakers, including pitches to possible future teammates in July.
Those around Kobe say he is definitively coming back to play next season. Doesn't want to go out like this.
Even if Kobe decides to retire, he may not wanna make a decision until after the recovery period, which could push beyond July. AK
No official timeline from the Lakers on Kobe's return but you don't return from torn rotator cuff surgery in two and a half months.
Nick Young on what Lakers need to do w/o Kobe: "Pretty much just give me the ball and get out of the way." He laughed as he walked away
Fun fact on Neal ElAttrache, who fixed Tom Brady's knee: Repaired rotator cuffs of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone on same day.
Dodgers doctor Neal ElAttrache and Lakers doc Steve Lombardo will perform Kobe's surgery Wednesday. Same guys did Kobe's Achilles together.
BScott said Kobe "probably" will not play the rest of this season.
Normal recovery time following surgery for torn rotator cuffs is 5-6 months. Kobe should be good to go before the start of training camp.
Get well soon, Kobe.
Also Nick Young sprained his right ankle at the end of practice. Lakers luck
Kobe Bryant will have surgery on his torn rotator cuff on Wednesday and will miss the rest of the season. http://t.co/TOokJEFvDp
Kobe Bryant’s rotator cuff tear has been comfirmed. Surgery set for Wednesday with a timeline to come at that time.
Kobe's surgery is generally being viewed by Lakers as having a six-month rehab, but it will be clarified Wednesday.
Lakers announce that Kobe Bryant will have season-ending shoulder surgery Wednesday. No timetable for his return but likely several months.
Kobe Bryant will have surgery to repair the torn rotator cuff on his right shoulder on Wednesday, according to Lakers PR.
Kobe us having surgery Wednesday morning. Lakers will timeline for his rehab/ return after surgery
Rough winter day in Los Angeles. Yup. Clouds http://t.co/xzODIa045r
Hard for me to envision Kobe and MJ on the same team. Would’ve loved to have seen it, but I can’t imagine that dynamic duo.
If I bought the Cavs anything for their garden, it would probably be a Love Fern.
HOLD ON! Twice in 3 days in “How to Lose a Guy” the Kings play the Knicks at the Garden. I discovered the ONE unrealistic part of the movie
The “Sleepless in Seattle” scene of “How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days” has to be the most meta thing to ever happen in a chick flick.
In honor of Kings at Knicks tomorrow, the Mrs. and I are watching “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.” Scott Pollard shoots FTs at the Garden!
Byron Scott: “I think we’ve had 20 Turnovers or more in our last 4 or 5 games.”
FWIW, I saw Nick Young leave Staples Center on Sunday night. He was with a member of the Lakers community relations department.
Byron Scott: “The effort, like I said, that hasn’t been an issue. The TOs, that has been an issue. Again, we had 21 TOs tonight…
Rotator cuff surgery is about a 6 month recovery period. So I'm hearing Kobe wants to research everything before going under the knife.
Byron is old school, believing deeply in withholding playing time to teach lessons. No doubt hopeful Nick will step into some of Kobe void.
