Clippers knew that the Hornets would try and come out strong tonight. They dont want to lose a 6th consecutive game.

Melissa Rohlin

Halftime: Clippers 56, Hornets 53. Not the score they had hoped for.

Ben Bolch

Chris Paul has 10 points and 9 assists at halftime as Clippers lead Hornets, 56-53.

Ben Bolch

You knew Chris Paul was going to come back after that play.

Gary Lee

Kobe Bryant recently talked about his chemistry with Jeremy Lin. lakersnation.com/kobe-bryant-ta… http://t.co/1XxxcRxk6V

Arash Markazi

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).

Arash Markazi

Lakers players missed a league-high 319 games last season. They could break that this season with Nash, Randle & Henry missing 236 combined.

Ben Bolch

Al Jefferson jump hook ties score at 38-38 before three-pointer by Jamal Crawford puts Clippers back up.

Ben Bolch

Clippers having a VERY sloppy quarter so far. Chris Paul back in.

Ben Bolch

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."

Ben Bolch

Asked who was better, Kobe Bryant or Michael Jordan, Doc Rivers said, "I’ve always though Kobe was much…nah." He was joking.

Ben Bolch

Doc Rivers was asked before the game what Jordan Farmar can improve on. "Everything," Doc said.

Ben Bolch

Turn back the clock Hedo.

Ben Bolch

Three quick fouls for Spencer Hawes. DeAndre Jordan coming back in.

Ben Bolch

Not a good sequence for Spencer Hawes, who misses three-pointer, commits a foul and picks up a technical for complaining.

Melissa Rohlin

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.

Melissa Rohlin

After one quarter: Clippers 31, Hornets 23. Blake has 10 points and 4 rebounds. Last game against Memphis, he had 4 rebounds all game.

Ben Bolch

Clippers lead Hornets, 31-23, after end of first quarter. This game has the feel of a blowout in the making.

Ben Bolch

Jordan Farmar playing WITH Chris Paul. Haven't seen this much.

Arash Markazi

Henry suffered the injury at this morning’s practice and will have surgery tomorrow morning with Dr. Neal ElAttrache and Dr. Steve Lombardo.

Kamenetzky Brothers

The Lakers confirm Xavier Henry did suffer a ruptured Achilles, and will likely miss this season. Surgery tomorrow. AK

Mike Trudell

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.

Arash Markazi

Lakers guard Xavier Henry suffered a ruptured left Achilles tendon and will have surgery tomorrow. He will miss the remainder of the season.

Mike Bresnahan

Xavier Henry will have surgery tomorrow morning to repair his torn Achilles' tendon. He will likely miss the rest of the season, Lakers say.

Melissa Rohlin

Michael Jordan is at the Hornets-Clippers game

Ben Bolch

Lady in corner of Time Warner Arena yells, "Baby! Baby!" and Glen Davis acknowledges her with a big smile. Gotta love him.

Melissa Rohlin

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.

Bill Oram

Lakesr make it official. Xavier Henry out for the season with ruptured Achilles. Will have surgery tomorrow.

Ben Bolch

Spurs-ian ball movement results in Jamal Crawford three-pointer.

Ben Bolch

Reggie Bullock has badly missed a corner three-pointer and airballed a 26-footer in early going of first career start.

Ben Bolch

Galen Center might be louder than Time Warner Cable Arena. It's that bad.

Ben Bolch

Clippers are very dangerous when DeAndre Jordan and J.J. Redick get involved offensively early in game.

Ben Bolch

That Blake Griffin dunk was vintage. Like a 1982 Lafite Rothschild.

Ben Bolch

Buzz is supposed to be back for Hornets but Time Warner Cable Arena is half full for tip-off.

Mike Trudell

Here’s a (Kobe-heavy) look at some early season numbers that describe L.A.’s start to 2014-15: on.nba.com/1uyxPnm

Ben Bolch

First career start for Reggie Bullock.

Ben Bolch

The greatest coach in recent Lakers history, Bernie Bickerstaff, is two seats over from me inside Time Warner Cable Arena.

Melissa Rohlin

Doc Rivers said what bothered him most in his team's loss to Memphis yesterday was "defensive discipline" per the Fox broadcast

Jeremy Lin After Lakers practice today - VIDEO: youtu.be/g8fnozwWuIU

Ben Bolch

Matt Barnes' calf injury was reason he wasn't aggressive after nine-point first quarter versus Grizzlies.

Ben Bolch

Matt Barnes said calf has been bothering him since Portland and he aggravated in second quarter vs. Grizzlies.

Ben Bolch

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."

Ramona Shelburne

Dee Gordon, everyone RT @FlashGJr Sooo... Who wants to turn DP's with me?

Kevin Ding

Kobe made that shot (en route to title). Fun one to relive in clip youtube.com/watch?v=i871mb… and my column that night ocregister.com/articles/phil-….

Kevin Ding

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.

Hard to tell, but... MT @DylanMacNamara: Kobe's instructions before final possession? "Get the f**k out of the way." bleacherreport.com/articles/22790…

In other words, what every coach did. AK RT @Mark Medina: Byron Scott plans to rest Kobe more in practice instead of lowering minutes

Janis Carr

Poor Xavier Henry. Possibly a torn Achilles. Happened in practice.

Laker Girls

Mike Bresnahan

Lakers are in contact with NBA officials about roster possibilities now that three players are almost surely done for or the season.

Mike Trudell

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).

Bill Oram

Presuming Xavier Henry’s Achilles is ruptured as Lakers believe, would likely be Lakers third season-ending injury. It’s November.

Jeremy Lin

Everyone please say a prayer for @Xavier Henry ... get healthy soon bro. Joshua 1:9

Beton Duran

Wow "@Los Angeles Lakers: .@Xavier Henry left Achilles injury today in practice. Suspected to be a rupture. He’s getting an MRI right now to confirm."

Gary Lee

BREAKING: Lakers believe Xavier Henry ruptured his left Achilles and will get an MRI. lakersnation.com/breaking-xavie… http://t.co/NgWYaPbFBc

Mike Trudell

Xavier had been trying desperately to get his legs back after offseason knee procedures. Played 2 games w/t @DFenders, worked his butt off.

Mike Trudell

Brutal. RT @Los Angeles Lakers: .@Xavier Henry suffered a L Achilles injury today in practice. Suspected to be a rupture. He’s getting an MRI to confirm.

Ryan Ward

Xavier Henry may have suffered a torn left Achilles in practice today, according to @MarkBresnahan #Lakers

Mike Bresnahan

Xavier Henry might have torn his left Achilles' tendon. Happened at practice today. MRI exam going on now.

Steve Nash will be around Lakers, he told Mitch Kupchak. And maybe Nash helps others come around someday. My column: bleacherreport.com/articles/22784…

Kamenetzky Brothers

He'll inevitably force a trade to the Lakers. Cut to the chase! AK RT @DrewGarrisonSBN: #GetItDoneMitch RT@TJFsports: http://t.co/nSihdJDPBp

Arash Markazi

Then again, the bad trade helped New Orleans have a bad season which ultimately led to Anthony Davis so everyone still wins. Well, almost.

Gary Lee

After the loss, Byron Scott doesn’t think the Lakers are relying too much on Kobe Bryant in late-game situations. lakersnation.com/byron-scott-do…

Arash Markazi

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.

Arash Markazi

Eric Gordon & Austin Rivers are the remaining pieces of the Chris Paul trade in New Orleans. Chris Kaman & Al-Farouq Aminu have since left.

Arash Markazi

Tough news for a good guy. RT @New Orleans Pelicans Eric Gordon will be out indefinitely with a left shoulder injury. on.nba.com/15f5gXy

If Kobe stick to his season average of 26.7 points he’ll pass MJ on Dec, 12 in San Antonio.
