Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis on the Kiss Cam at Lakers home game for 2016 free agent Kevin Durant's entertainment.
Doc Rivers calls timeout down 107-100 with 1:08 left. Drawing up a seven-point play?
Westbrook just continues to force his way into the paint, and has drawn a number of fouls, FT attempts 12 and 13 coming out of a time out.
If a foul is called and the player (Jordan Hill) hits both FT's after a block attempt, you can't do the Dikembe finger shake, Ibaka. Right?
Reggie Jackson's three ties the game at 42 because Ronnie Price has returned to the old Ronnie Price.
Reggie Jackson's heating up, hitting his 2nd 3 to tie the game up at 42. LAL had led by as many as 11.
Tie game after that Reggie Jackson 3. 42-42. Lakers led by as many as 11.
At 5:05 mark of second quarter, Kobe still scoreless. That should change as he heads to the line here.
OKC's been paying Kobe extra attention, limiting him to 0 points (0 for 3 FG's) w/3 assists, but giving his teammates plenty of open shots.
OKC starting to turn it on now. Cut the lead to 4 w/ 5:19 left in the half. Westbrook leads the Thunder with 13 points.
BOBBY SHMURDA DUNK.
A lot of talk at practice yesterday about Lakers seemingly being able to find focus and effort for top opponents. Lead OKC (no KD) 38-32.
Let me guess...airball?
Westbrook hasn't had his shot going, but he's been at the line repeatedly, already 9 for 9 to keep OKC within 6 at 38-32.
Clippers get a sixth technical foul of fourth quarter with a delay of game.
Those DeAndre Jordan tap-outs, man.
Sacre just pushed another player in the back while trying to get a rebound. Ha, Boozer has clearly taught his son well.
By missing that jumper, Carlos Boozer just cost Nick Young his 11th assist of the season.
Sources: All 30 teams have interest in Damian Lillard when he hits free agency. AK
Lakers still holding a 10-point lead. W/o Durant OKC definitely looks like a 12-14 team.
LAL now 6 for 13 from 3 after Ellington joins the party Price started, putting the Lakers up 34-24 at the 8:53 mark of the 2nd Q.
No one airballs better than Nick Young.
That had to be the most Nick Young play EVER! Cross, Cross… Airball
Was that an airball?
LAL's bench continues its good play of late, with Young's 3 and Boozer's 2 making it 31-20, matching the biggest lead.
Hedo Turkoglu picked up Clippers' third technical of that sorry sequence.
Lakers' backcourt scoring: Price 14, Lin 4, Bryant 0, Young 0, Rondo 0. ... LAL 26, OKC 20.
Three consecutive technical fouls against Clippers after DeAndre Jordan got peeved for being wrapped up by Kenneth Faried.
Robert Sacre just pushed Nick Collison in the back while trying to get the rebound. Reminds me of a young Carlos Boozer.
Jeremy Lin came in averaging just 6.0 points on 28.6% FG's as a reserve (5 games), but starts 2 for 2 tonight, putting LAL up 26-17.
Nice cut and finish by Jeremy Lin.
In Nov., L.A.’s bench was 22nd in the NBA w/28.4 points per game. W/Lin and Boozer, they're No. 3 w/45.0 ppg and 2nd in rebounds (21.8).
Career high for Ronnie Price is 18, on Jan. 13, 2012, vs. New Jersey when he was in Phoenix. He had 14 in the 1st Q (4 triples).
That's not going to help your shooting percentage there, Kobe.
Clippers' second unit, well, yeah. Nuggets now up, 80-74, with 9:31 left.
That's two airballs for Nate Robinson, which means he will probably win three-point contest at All-Star game.
OK … Ronnie Price has now hit 4 3-pointers in the 1st Q, putting LAL up 22-11. He'd hit 11 total in the previous 23 games.
Ronnie Price playing the game of his life right now. Price leads all scorers with 14. Against Russell Westbrook btw.
Ronnie Price's career high is 18. he has 14 with more than 3 minutes left in the first quarter.
Swaggy P is getting larger and larger ovations at Staples by the game. He joins Boozer w/Price, Bryant and Davis.
Never retire, Tim Duncan. AK
Ronnie Price made his first four jumpers and I'm going to tell my grandchildren about this game one day.
Wesley Johnson turned an ankle trying to get back in transition on Westbrook, but appears fine and is staying in the game.
Ronnie Price has already matched his season-high (11 points). There are still six minutes left in the first quarter.
Ronnie Price: 4-for-4, 3-for-3 on 3s, 11 points. In six minutes.
After starting 0 for 3, Westbrook got a bucket to go plus the foul to stop a 10-0 LAL run … but Ronnie Price answered w/his 3rd triple.
I would say the Clippers won the third quarter. Outscored Nuggets, 31-12, and now lead, 74-71.
Jordan Hill caught Serge Ibaka in the chin with an elbow. Ibaka goes down for a while but is up now. Play on.
After making three consecutive jump shots, Ronnie Price is now shooting 31 percent for the season.
Westbrook playing like he knows he's supposed to score 50 in this game. Rough start.
The Price offensive burst is a bonus for LAL … he had 2 3's in his last 5 games total and 2 field goals in the last 3. Passed that in 5 min.
BREAKING: Ronnie Price has made three consecutive jump shots. Yeah, this is a real tweet.
LAL get some early offense from Ronnie Price, who hit B2B triples after starting w/a 2-pointer. He has LAL up 12-4 at the 7:23 mark.
Ronnie Price outplaying Russell Westbrook early in LA. OK, now I've seen it all.
RONNIE PRICE. HEAT CHECK.
Ronnie Price heat check! BK
Westbrook is certainly in attack mode, as expected, and while missing his first 2 shots, drew a PF at 8:39 mark and hit 2 FT's. 4-4 early.
Mila Kunis courtside. That is all
Ronnie Price forced Russell Westbrook to miss a shot on the very first possession and made the Lakers' first shot of the game.
Ronnie Price - 2, Thunder - 0.
Clippers apparently no longer need a small forward.
Kobe hugs his daughters at center court. http://t.co/LpkfSiAkgb
Rocky, the Nuggets mascot, has unfortunately commandeered my computer. http://t.co/annyT1voGw
Matt Barnes for MVP.
There will never be another Kobe.
The Clippers just opened the third quarter with a 16-0 run.
Wow, the Clippers just tied opened the third quarter with a bang, turning a 16-point halftime defect into a tied game at 59-59 w 7:32 left
Sweet 16 for Clippers.
Kobe kept shooting while Lakers showed video honoring him passing Jordan -
Matt Barnes has scored last 6 points of Clippers' 16-0 run and it's now tied, 59-59. Not quite "I don't believe what I just saw," but close.
Lakers honoring Kobe Bryant right now for passing MJ.
Clippers have run off 14 consecutive points to start third quarter, now trail Nuggets only 59-57.
LAL-OKC coming up shortly … Over/under on Russell Westbrook's FGA's tonight? I'll go with 30 (his total last night at GSW).
Clippers finally playing like they care, pull to within 59-51 early in third quarter.
Halftime: Denver Nuggets 59, Clippers 43. The Nuggets are outshooting the Clippers, 58.5% to 35.4%.
Clippers trail Nuggets, 59-43, at halftime and are barely still in the game. They're missing a certain something--like, everything.
Chris Paul showing some heart with seven consecutive points for Clippers.
Still don't understand how the Denver Nuggets don't feature Kenneth Faried more. Not that it's mattering tonight...
Not passing judgement, but I'm pretty sure the Santa at my daughter's Christmas recital is hammered. AK
