Jamal Crawford banks in halfcourt shot at end of first quarter. Give him a trip to Morongo.

Arash Markazi

Danny Granger checks into the game. Doc said he looked good in practice over the past two days.

Ben Bolch

Glen Davis has a feathery jumper for someone who's so big.

Arash Markazi

So Steve Blake ended up playing some playoff basketball in L.A. after all.

Ben Bolch

Danny Granger checks in for Clippers. Let's see what he can do.

Ben Bolch

Jamal Crawford with the halfcourt lob to DeAndre Jordan for the dunk in transition.

Ben Bolch

Most important player in this series may be the one who's not on floor: Blake Griffin. Warriors have made big run with him out.

Ben Bolch

And just like that, Stephen Curry ties the score at 17-17.

Arash Markazi

Andre Iguodala picks up his 3rd foul with 3:35 left in the FIRST quarter.

Ben Bolch

Andre Iguodala picks up third foul with 3:35 left in first quarter.

Ben Bolch

Andre Iguodala gets around Jamal Crawford with relative ease. Complete ease, actually.

Ben Bolch

Doc Rivers calls a timeout after Clippers' lead trimmed to 15-10.

Ben Bolch

DeAndre Jordan airballs a free throw, now 1 of 4 from the line.

Ben Bolch

Stephen Curry jumper gives Warriors first basket, but they still trail Clippers, 12-3.

Ryan Kelly

Had fun at Runyon Canyon yesterday! instagram.com/p/m-9OSwk7La/

Ben Bolch

Clippers playing as if they've waited almost a year for this moment. Which they have.

Ben Bolch

Four minutes in and the Warriors still don't have a field goal versus Clippers, who lead, 12-1.

Ben Bolch

Blake Griffin picks up second foul at 8:46 of first quarter, replaced by Glen Davis. Uh-oh.

Dave McMenamin

I got Pop'd today. Asked him how he'd compare this year's Spurs' overall readiness vs. past teams. Popovich: "I don't know how to do that"

Arash Markazi

Clippers fans in all red and Kings fans in all black have become two solid L.A. traditions over the past three years.

Melissa Rohlin

Clippers have taken an early 7-0 lean and the crowd is loving it. Have to scream to talk to the person next to me.

Arash Markazi

Clippers 7, Warriors 0 with 9:35 left in the 1st quarter. Timeout Golden State.

A fair number of empty seats in the lower and middle section of Staples Center. #earlystart

Ben Bolch

Blake Griffin seemed pleased about that call on David Lee, like he sold it.

Kevin Ding

That time they held NBA playoffs and the Lakers weren't invited... #clippers #warriors instagram.com/p/m-7cZupDTh/

Ben Bolch

Clippers scrapped their normal pregame music video in exchange for something a little more serious.

Dave McMenamin

Paul Pierce dedicates this 4th Q to @Mike Wise

Gary Lee

Dr. Buss would've never accepted the trade offer, but imagine that. Magic Johnson as a member of the Pistons. Actually, I don't want to.

Gary Lee

Here's an interesting story that would've changed the course of NBA history. It involved Magic and the Pistons. bit.ly/1ll6DdM

Pau Gasol

You gotta love the excitement from the Raptors fans! Inside and outside of the basketball arena. #FuntoWatch #NBAPlayoffs

Kendall Marshall

shot clock guy, you had one job.

Kent Bazemore

Playoffs!!?? (jadakiss voice)

Dave McMenamin

Bare with me, Lakers fans: I'm in San Antonio covering Games 1 & 2 of Spurs-Mavs. Going to be a lot of Spurs stuff coming from me this week

Arash Markazi

Danny Granger will play today.

Bill Oram

So @Mark Heisler just called me @Dan Woike' bitch. The playoffs have officially begun.

Gary Lee

Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom playing together in the triangle offense was beautiful. 4-5 years later? I don't know about that...

Gary Lee

Well, if Pau Gasol really wants to go to the Knicks and play in the triangle offense, he'd have to take a significant pay cut -- $3.2M. Yup.

Gary Lee

Could Pau Gasol possibly be reuniting with Phil Jackson and Lamar Odom in New York? bit.ly/1hXysWd

Gary Lee

Another day, another rumor.

Dave McMenamin

Former Spurs asst & current 76ers head coach Brett Brown was at SAS practice Sat. He told Danny Green PHI will make playoffs next year

Kent Bazemore

Toronto is hostile... Sheesh

Gary Lee

Lakers should keep this year’s pick and the 2015 off-season is where they realistically can become championship contenders again.

Gary Lee

Well, how do the Lakers not only get back into the playoffs, but become championship contenders next season? bit.ly/1r5kd21

Gary Lee

My first-round predictions: - Pacers in 6 - Heat in 5 - Nets in 6 - Bulls in 6 - Spurs in 5 - Thunder in 6 - Clippers in 5 - Rockets in 6

Gary Lee

Very exciting matchups in the West though. The East? Not so much.

Gary Lee

I probably won’t be watching the playoffs this weekend. Difficult for me to watch if the Lakers aren’t playing, but that’s just me.

Gary Lee

Good morning, Lakers Nation!

Steve Nash

Pumped the @Raptors are back in the playoffs!!

Arash Markazi

The Clippers were 33-0 at home in games where they led at any point of the fourth quarter this season. Every other team had at least 1 loss.

Dave McMenamin

Stat of the day: Dikembe Mutombo had 31 blocks in 5 games in the Nuggets' 1-8 upset of the Sonics in the 1st Rd in 1994

Arash Markazi

Chris Paul averaged 28.0 points and 12.7 assists per game in the three games he appeared in against the Warriors this season.

Arash Markazi

DeAndre Jordan led the league in rebounds. CP3 led the league in assists. The last time the league’s leader in both were teammates was 1975.

Kendall Marshall had some funny stories about video taping Steve Nash's shooting workouts: youtu.be/wl7wSKqe0js

Lakers rumored to keep Kendall Marshall, D’Antoni comments on injuries, Kupchak calls Gasol a priority this summer. bit.ly/1jSFYRv

Arash Markazi

Two reasons Clippers-Warriors has been chipy has been Bazemore's antics on the bench and Bogut's on the court. Bazemore's gone, Bogut's out.

Kamenetzky Brothers

I don't want to guess how many Dodgers fans hope League just broke his hand. BK

Kamenetzky Brothers

Juan Uribe's ascent from the depths of epic horribleness is one of the best LA sports stories of the last couple years. BK

Should L.A. keep or trade it? Here’s Mitch Kupchak’s interesting response: bit.ly/1r5kd21

Kendall Marshall

just gimme some peanuts and apple jacks. lls instagram.com/p/m9V6GoRsWl/

Gary Lee

Since the Lakers were eliminated from the playoffs in March, much of the discussion has been about the lottery pick.

Kamenetzky Brothers

Revisiting Steve Nash and the infamous "money" quote: ow.ly/vWtDJ BK

Gary Lee

The unfortunate truth is that Kobe will have to be retired before he receives the respect he deserves. And that’s a damn shame. #NoFilter

Gary Lee

It’s amazing how much respect players have for Kobe, but outsiders are always trying to find ways to discredit what he’s done for the NBA.

Robert Sacre

Is there only 1 Canadian in #NHLplayoffs

Gary Lee

"I feel like Kobe will go down as a top-five player who ever played in this league” - Paul George. bit.ly/1mfzXSq

Gary Lee

Add Paul George to the list of players who grew up admiring Kobe. bit.ly/1mfzXSq

Gary Lee

From Kevin Durant calling him the greatest player of all-time to Blake Griffin praising his work ethic, Kobe has been an inspiration.

Gary Lee

Over the past couple of months, the new generation of players who grew up watching Kobe Bryant have spoken up about the five-time champion.

Kamenetzky Brothers

SportsCenter just had a crawl item "D'Antoni Done?" Personally, I'd have punched it up and gone with "D'onetoni?" AK

Kendall Marshall

first MLB game! checkin out the @Dodgers, lovin this atmosphere! so chill

Gary Lee

Kupchak did say today that Nick Young has a "savvy representative" & Nick's going to have a lot of offers elsewhere… =(

Gary Lee

Since many of you have said Jordan Farmar…."Kobe's Kobe. He doesn't change for anybody." youtu.be/g-yH0X5RaEg

Gary Lee

Of the soon-to-be Lakers free agents, who would you most want to see the Lakers retain?

Gary Lee

Will we be seeing Mike D'Antoni again? Or, was this his last interview? youtu.be/sF1Sqf-1iNA

Gary Lee

Taking shots at Kobe Bryant over the years to remain relevant, Smush Parker punched a high schooler during a game. bit.ly/1tjGU6t

Smush Parker. Starting point guard for your 2005-2007 Los Angeles Lakers. Yup.

Xavier Henry

Who's really in control???

Kendall Marshall

#TakeFlightJBC MVP's: Pinson and JJackson, maybe I'm biased.

Craig Sager statement: "A dramatic turn has matched me with acute myeloid leukemia. ... Too bad, I had some probing questions for Pop.”

Dave McMenamin

Turner releases a statement from Craig Sager that concludes, "Too bad, I had some probing questions for Pop." Get well soon, Craig.

Pau Gasol
