Lakers Highlights: Kobe Bryant looks spry, finishes through Kyle Lowry in transition

Who are you calling old?

Robert Upshaw is blocking everything in sight during his Lakers debut

Raptors need to stop testing him. The Los Angeles Lakers have built a wall around the basket. Weirdly, they named that wall Robert Upshaw: Yeah, Raptors, maybe you should try and shoot some jumpers or something? Just a suggestion.

D'Angelo Russell ruled out for Lakers' preseason game vs. Toronto Raptors

The Lakers are playing things safe with the rookie. After initially being listed as a game-time decision for the Los Angeles Lakers' preseason game against the Toronto Raptors in Ontario, D'Angelo Russell has been ruled out of the contest due to to the glute injury he sustained in the Lakers' second contest against the Utah Jazz in Hawaii on Sunday night. Russell was injured attempting to block Jazz center Rudy Gobert at the rim. Nick Young will start in place of the Lakers' prized rookie point guard (although presumably not at point guard, with Jordan Clarkson likely picking up the...

Raptors continue pre-season out west, prepare for the Los Angeles Lakers tonight

After falling to the defending champion Golden State Warriors, the Raptors continue their pre-season tonight against the Los Angeles Lakers. After a game that featured a ridiculous Steph Curry shot--seriously this is insane--the Toronto Raptors are back in action tonight to take on the Kobe-led Los Angeles Lakers. The last game didn't feature Kyle Lowry who sat out, however the new shredded bulldog is expected to suit up in this game tonight. Lowry had a dominate 20 point display against the Los Angeles Clippers earlier in the pre-season. The Lakers come into this game with some bumps and...

Lakers Injury Update: Brandon Bass' knee needs further testing, D'Angelo Russell a game time decision

How healthy are the Lakers heading into tonight's game? Over the past few seasons, the Los Angeles Lakers have suffered an injury epidemic, even leading the league in the amount of games their players missed due to injury last season. This season's training camp has seen a lot more of the same with Larry Nance, Jr. (back), Marcelo Huertas (hamstring), Jabari Brown (hand), Anthony Brown (shoulder), and Metta World Peace (calf) all missing time from various practices and games due to maladies. Perhaps most terrifying for Lakers fans was the recent injury to rookie point guard D'Angelo...

Warriors vs. Blazers odds and broadcast info: Golden State continues preseason in Portland

The Champs head up to the Pacific Northwest for some preseason blazer bashing time. Basketball is finally back! Unfortunately the Warriors (again) will not be televised when they play the Trail Blazers tonight at the Moda Center in Portland. Leaving us to watch highlights of LeBron taking selfies with fans, *sigh*. To make matters worse, apparently you can't bet on preseason NBA games. I thought this was America dammit! So let us lower our blood pressure and shift our attention away from the ever important preseason to look ahead at some future bets. Currently the Cleveland Cavaliers...

Kings vs. Spurs Preview: Return of the Jimmer

After losing last night in Phoenix, the Kings don't have much time to think about because they're back in action tonight against the visiting San Antonio Spurs.  Not only is the game at home but it's actually being televised locally on CSN California and as always on KHTK 1140 for the radio.  Tip-off is at 7:00 PM Pacific Time. Three Questions: 1. Can the Kings limit the turnovers?  Turnovers are bound to be a problem with a team filled with mostly new players and shaking off summer rust, but some of the turnovers the Kings have committed in the first two games have been particularly...

Lakers vs. Raptors preseason preview: Getting into a groove back in California

The Lakers head to the Inland Empire to play their first game in California this preseason. The Los Angeles Lakers have fallen back to California after enduring training camp and two preseason losses in Hawaii. An overtime loss to the Utah Jazz came at a cost, though, with D'Angelo Russell suffering a bruised glute and Brandon Bass potentially injuring his knee. Russell is considered a game-time decision, while Bass doubtful to play against the Toronto Raptors. Bass's absence could mean some extra burn for Larry Nance, Jr., who got his first taste of NBA action after sitting out of the...

Suns-Kings Aftermath: What the coach, players said about Jon Leuer and the Suns win

Watch and read what the coach and players said about the Suns win over the Kings in preseason, including the dunk of the year so far. The Phoenix Suns hadn't played a game against another team since mid April, and hadn't beaten anyone since early April. So getting a win, even in preseason, was a nice catharsis and likely helped the players sleep better last night. It was the Suns bench that carried the team to the 102-98 win, after the starters were killed 32-15 in the first quarter. "I thought our bench guys played great," coach Hornacek said. "Every guy that came in off the bench played...

Suns/Kings Preseason Recap: Leuer kills Boogie... and that's all that matters

The Phoenix Suns won the game 102-98, but it was Jon Leuer who really showed the Suns he can play some basketball with 17 points and 13 rebounds in just 19 minutes of play.

Warriors news: Ian Clark, James Michael McAdoo impressive in training camp; Mitch Richmond joins Chris Mullin at St. John's

James Michael McAdoo stands out in the scramble for the Warriors' final roster spot. Doc Rivers looks to edge "Lucky" Warriors this year. Mully & Mitch reunite as coaches. Harrison Barnes owned the month of September. Quite literally, HB made it roll - whether it was the head of his ex-agent, or the eyes of dubious fans as we watched him turn down a platinum offer that may have sent a more proven player down a zipline of opulent dreams not more than half a decade ago; it was definitely Barnsey's show. This month belongs to fellow University of North Carolina alum, James Michael McAdoo, so...

Paul Pierce is Already Making an Off-Court Contribution to his Los Angeles Clippers Teammates

It might not be how you'd expect the veteran forward to help out his younger teammates. When Doc Rivers and the Los Angeles Clippers reached an agreement to sign Paul Pierce this summer, there was some debate over how much the 37-year-old (38 next week!) would be able to help on the court.  However, there was no question that the former NBA Finals MVP and LA native would bring experience, poise, and leadership to a team struggling to break through, just as he did with John Wall and the Washington Wizards last season. The clutch shots won't hurt either. As the internet and Clippers fan base...
