Chris Paul jumper gives Clippers a 105-94 lead with 5 minutes left.
No Dwight Howard tonight. No Kobe Bryant. Translation: All James Harden.
No Dwight Howard. No Kobe Bryant. Tonight's game diminished juuust a bit.
Doc is engaging with the fans here in Phoenix. From the kid in glasses sitting courtside to the heckler in the 10th row.
Doc Rivers chats up a young boy in courtside seats, getting smile from (presumably) his parents.
Byron and Kevin McHale must have been driving in together. McHale more than five mins late for his pre-game press briefing.
Big Baby is emotional as he comes off the court, screaming as he sits down next to Blake.
Isaiah Thomas scores on Spencer Hawes, making it a Dawg-eat-Dawg world.
Turk down for what?
Big Baby just crushed a woman sitting courtside going for a loose ball. She survived.
Byron Scott thought tonight's game started an hour later. He's gonna miss pre-game press briefing. Or do it much later than usual.
Big Baby landed on some fans in courtside seats and five lawyers immediately ran over.
Looks like Suns have a small IT department.
Prediction: Suns will make it close.
Clippers enter the fourth quarter with a 12-point lead over the Suns, 89-77.
Clippers 89, Suns 77 at the end of the 3rd quarter. Blake Griffin with 21 points and Chris Paul with 16 points.
J.J. Redick 3-pointer bounces in to end 3rd quarter and give Clippers an 89-77 lead. Doc Rivers raises arm in triumph and looks to press row
Steve Ballmer is at the game, sitting about 10 rows up from midcourt. He may be back for the Super Bowl next week to see the Seahawks.
Rookie duties for @jclark5on bringing "baby" & stroller, per Scott's request/demand. Said "Rihanna is the baby momma" http://t.co/ouy7NnweMB
Spencer Hawes scored consecutive 3-pointers late in the third quarter to give the Clippers their biggest lead of the game - 13 points, 85-72
Ref to Blake after Blake was yelling at Suns bench: "Don't get involved." Blake to refs: "They're talking s--- to me."
Serious question: First back-to-back made three-pointers by Spencer Hawes all season?
Blake Griffin working the ref during a timeout. "He smacked the s--- out of me too now."
Halftime: Suns 57, Clippers 55. Blake Griffin with 14 points and Chris Paul with 10 points.
Goran Dragic being rude to Chris Paul like he said something about Zoran.
Makeup call for Matt Barnes???
Blake Griffin just pretty much sent Markieff Morris back to Kansas.
Dahntay Jones is constantly engaging with his teammates on the bench and giving younger players like Austin Rivers advice when he sits down.
Spencer Hawes dunk-and-one. Pretty stunning.
Doc yelling at Big Baby: "Keep playing! Keep playing!" Baby yelling back at Doc: "I got you! I got you!"
Doc Rivers turns to Suns fans in courtside seats and asks: "Didn't ya'll think that was traveling?" They mostly nod.
DeAndre Jordan gets called for goaltending on what looked like a block.
Which former Clippers teammate is Reggie Bullock most eager to talk trash to? "D.J. on the free-throw line."
No Kobe, No Dwight....any interest in tonight's game?
Same LAL starters tonight vs. Houston: Clarkson, Ellington, Kelly, Hill and Sacre.
Scott says Tarik Black (ankle) has improved some and will be available tonight, but is still sore and not a guarantee to play.
As expected, no update on Kobe Bryant (torn rotator cuff) today, says Byron Scott at shootaround. Expect to hear more tomorrow.
Victor Ortiz vs Brandon Rios on twitter. I give Rios the 1st round http://t.co/jK3VWopQTh

A lot of Spurs fans in my mentions, but I’m waiting for "WOOOOOO!” girl to tweet me. Does she have a Twitter? Asking for a friend.
(Insert your Deflategate jokes here.) http://t.co/2KPEVqwNKA
If I could do it all over I'd get a sleeve
... Byron even was considering playing Price one half and Lin the other. So wouldn't be surprising to see Lin back in tomorrow vs. Rockets.
Lakers are taking today off: no practice. Byron was torn before the game last night about Lin or Price as backup in giving Clarkson start...
A live look at the Belichick press conference. http://t.co/km9UdACJaf
I didn’t see this coming, but excited to see Byron giving Jordan Clarkson the opportunity to find/develop his game this early in the season.
Jordan Clarkson should be getting rotation minutes at this stage of the season, but Ronnie Price should never play ahead of Jeremy Lin.
Clippers' DeAndre Jordan has made 33 of 38 field goals in his last 5 games for 86.8%.
Clippers' DeAndre Jordan is shooting 72.9% for the season, on pace to break Wilt Chamberlain's NBA record of 72.7% for 1972-73 Lakers.
