    Oct 30, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Nobody saw this coming. The Lakers second string — Jordan Farmar, Xavier Henry, Wesley Johnson, Jodie Meeks and Jordan Hill — put up 41 points on 65.2 percent shooting, with an off-the-charts offensive rating of 154.6 points per 100 possessions in the fourth quarter. They scored the Lakers’ final 46 points, taking a close opening…

  2. Didn’t see this coming: Lakers win opener handily because bench too much for Clippers

    Oct 30, 2013, 2:49 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Los Angeles Lakers

    LOS ANGELES — Just a little more than an hour before the season tipped off for his Clippers, the team’s new coach Doc Rivers talked about building a winning culture, a swagger, for an organization that never really had it. In Boston that tradition came with the carpet (and the banners), with the Clippers that…

    Xavier Henry, J.J. Redick

    Our grades from Tuesday night around the NBA, or what you missed while watching crazy big wave surfing videos. The Los Angeles Lakers’ bench.

    In case you still wondered if this was going to be a rough season for the Lakers, we bring you this bit of news. Shawne Williams is the starting power forward for the Lakers in Tuesday night’s opener against the Los Angeles Clippers. That is the same Shawne Williams who was out of the league…

    Yao Ming & Kobe Bryant Attend NBA Fans Appreciation Day

    Lakers fans could have watched their team’s preseason win over Utah Tuesday night with a sense of optimism. Jordan Farmar looked good in the second half running the offense, Wes Johnson looked comfortable in the system on his way to 14 points, Xavier Henry was attacking, Jordan Hill looked solid in the paint. You could…

  6. Even if they could, should the Lakers go after ‘Melo to pair with Kobe, Nash? No.

    Oct 17, 2013, 7:15 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Los Angeles Lakers

    We start this exercise in the hypothetical with this grounded in reality caveat — very few people around the league think Carmelo Anthony is leaving New York next summer as a free agent. Yes, he certainly will opt out of his current deal as he told the New York Observer, and anything can happen in…

  7. Chris Kaman injures finger tobogganing at the Great Wall of China

    Oct 13, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Chris Kaman

    The Lakers are in China as part of the NBA’s Global Games schedule, with two preseason games on tap against the Golden State Warriors. Part of the excursion involves the team taking in some of the sights, although Chris Kaman seemed to get a little too aggressive with one of the attractions, and wound up…

  8. Pau Gasol, Steve Nash to sit out Lakers’ preseason opener vs. Warriors

    Oct 4, 2013, 8:01 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Steve Nash of Canada and Pau Gasol of Spain, watch the Lakers play against Oklahoma City Thunder in the second half of NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City.

    The Lakers had all the talent in the world last year on paper, but as was well-chronicled just about everywhere, the season ultimately was a complete disaster that saw the team barely sneak into the playoffs before being swept in the first round. A lack of chemistry with a certain center who shall not be…

  9. Chris Kaman discusses the perils of playing on a one-year contract

    Oct 1, 2013, 10:01 PM EDT

    Chris Kaman

    As the Lakers rounded out their veteran roster with a few key free agents this summer, they targeted experienced players who could still produce, but who for one reason or another were willing to sign on for one-year deals. Chris Kaman was one of those, a 10-year veteran seven-footer who can put up more than…

    Sep 19, 2013, 11:59 AM EDT

    Kevin Love, Wayne Ellington, Ricky Rubio

    Welcome to PBT’s regular roundtable on issues around the NBA, where our writers weigh in on the topic of the day. Today: The conventional wisdom is in the West the Thunder, Spurs, Clippers, Warriors, Grizzlies and Rockets are playoff locks (barring catastrophe). If true, who gets those final two slots? Kurt Helin: I think Minnesota,…

  11. Agent says Lakers, Clippers interested in Louis Amundson

    Sep 4, 2013, 12:34 PM EDT

    Lou Amundson

    Teams know what Louis Amundson is going to give them — real energy off the bench, rebounding, and almost no offense whatsoever. He was part of a good Suns bench back in 2010 but the past three seasons have seen him bounce around the league, struggle to get regular minutes, hand-in-hand with that his production…

  13. Jordan Hill says improved outside shooting won’t change the rest of his game

    Aug 22, 2013, 12:37 AM EDT

    jordan hill

    Jordan Hill provided a nice spark off the bench for the Lakers in the early part of last season, before suffering a torn labrum in his hip that sidelined him for 53 games. He was an energy player for a team that didn’t have many of them, and his hustle on the defensive end of…

    Jul 7, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    Chris Kaman

    The Lakers have seen Dwight Howard and Earl Clark both leave in free agency, which means they’re in need of some reliable big man help to fill out their roster for next season. It appears that veteran seven-footer Chris Kaman may be an option. From Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports: As Dwight Howard leaves Los Angeles,…

  17. After a few years Bay Area, Stephen Curry says he’s glad he didn’t fall to Knicks

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors - Game Three

    Stephen Curry was the No. 7 pick in the 2009 draft — behind Hasheem Thabeet, Tyreke Evans and Jonny Flynn (the last one was the David Kahn head scratcher of that draft). And he was taken one spot ahead of the New York Knicks (who took Jordan Hill). At the time, Curry was bummed he…

  18. Metta World Peace says he likely sits out Game 4 because of knee. Sure he does.

    Apr 27, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    At this point, what’s another injured Laker having to sit out? Metta World Peace tried to give it a go Friday night against San Antonio — he’d had fluid removed from his knee less than 24 hours before but tried to get out on the court. He was moving stiffly and shot 0-6 in the…

    Apr 25, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Steve Nash

    I strained a hamstring just watching the Lakers lose to the Spurs Wednesday night. Like Odysseus just trying to get home, the basketball gods are not done throwing obstacles in the Lakers way. And obstacles in this case are more injuries. So here is a rundown of the Lakers injuries as of postgame Wednesday night.…

  21. Lakers will try to adjust the way they attack in the post for Game 2 against Spurs

    Apr 24, 2013, 3:20 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan,  Pau Gasol

    The Lakers did a lot of things right in Sunday’s loss to the Spurs in Game 1 of the playoffs, but most of that was on the defensive end of the floor. L.A. held the Spurs to just 91 points on 37.6 percent shooting, and essentially matched them in rebounds and blocked shots. Where the Lakers…

  22. Kobe will be back, but what do Lakers do this summer now?

    Apr 13, 2013, 11:02 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant isn’t going to let his career end this way, limping off the court with a torn Achilles tendon. It is going to end on his terns. He would not allow it to be any other way. He will be back. An hour after he limped off the court he was telling the media…
