    Andy Kamenetzky

    Lakers big man Jordan Hill appeared in Houston court Thursday and entered a no contest plea to charges of assaulting a former girlfriend. As a result of the plea, the charges have been reduced from felony to misdemeanor, and he'll pay a fee of $500, ...

  2. Rapid Reaction: Lakers 91, Nets 87

    Andy Kamenetzky

    The Lakers built a big first half lead. The Lakers lost a big first half lead. The Lakers won a tight contest made incredibly more complicated than necessary. Lather, rinse, repeat. Here are three takeaways. 1) Ramon Sessions and Kobe Bryant ca...

  3. Lakers vs. Thunder: What to watch with Daily Thunder

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Even before a tumultuous turn of recent events -- a lethargic home loss to Memphis, Mike Brown sitting Kobe Bryant and Andrew Bynum during key stretches of two contests -- this game would be huge. As I wrote Wednesday, it marks the first of five game...

  4. Rapid Reaction: Lakers 116, Grizzlies 111 (2OT)

    Andy Kamenetzky

    No Zach Randolph and no Rudy Gay? Ultimately, it was a bit too much of a problem for the Grizzlies, who hung very tough without two of their three best players, even forcing 10 bonus minutes of basketball to decide the contest. Lesser names like Tony...

  5. Lakers at Timberwolves: What to watch, with A Wolf Among Wolves

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Should the Lakers drop tonight's contest in Minnesota -- certainly a believable outcome, given the debacle in Milwaukee -- it'll be doubly disconcerting because of the story within the story. The Lakers are a team in transition. From Phil Jackson to ...

  6. Rapid Reaction: Bucks 100, Lakers 89

    Andy Kamenetzky

    The Lakers entered this contest with a 1-6 road record, but I was willing to cut them some degree of slack. Yes, championship-caliber teams can win on the road, but at the same time, the majority of their losses have come against quality teams. Portl...

  7. Lakers vs. Mavericks: What to watch

    Andy Kamenetzky

    It would have been nice to enter tonight's contest contest up two games in the loss column, but unfortunately -- and stop me if you've heard this one before -- the Clippers didn't handle their end of the bargain Wednesday at Staples. (I've never been...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Since this weekend is Blake Griffin's world and we're just living in it, Brian and I will be live blogging throughout his (presumed) domination at Saturday's dunk contest. Drop by this page once the throwdown-a-thon begins as we offer continual comme...

  10. Would you have preferred Kobe sat out the Bobcats game?

    Andy Kamenetzky

    When it was announced Kobe Bryant missed shootaround with flu-like symptoms and would be a game-time decision for Tuesday's contest against Charlotte, I joked with Brian about "game-time decision" being purposely tossed out for dramatic effect, becau...

  11. Lakers vs. Houston: What to watch with Red94

    Andy Kamenetzky

    When this current five game home stand began, today's contest was pegged as the fourth easiest behind the cream puff Kings. A relative breather between Boston and San Antonio. Of course, that was before the Lakers actually lost to Sacto, much less Bo...

  12. Week in preview: Jan. 17 - 23

    Andy Kamenetzky

    The week is relatively light on games. Only three on the slate, and one is gotten out of the way early. However, it's a trio of potentially explosive contests. Remember, people. Quality, not quantity, counts. Game of the Week Monday vs. Oklahom...

  13. Lakers-Clippers: What to watch, with Neil Olshey

    Andy Kamenetzky

    With wins in eight of their last 12 contests, most recently against the Miami Heat, the Clippers are suddenly a team to be taken seriously. Blake Griffin isn't just playing like the runaway Rookie of the Year, but a legitimate All-Star forward. Eric ...

  14. Phil shows "Aleksander" respect, Barnes, Ratliff updates: Practic...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Friday's contest against the New Jersey Nets features the return of two former Lakers, Jordan Farmar and Sasha Vujacic, a wrinkle that could add some emotion to an otherwise (theoretically) lopsided contest. Farmar already competed against the Lakers...

  15. Lakers vs. Wizards: What to watch

    Andy Kamenetzky

    On its face, I'd label this game the second of a generally easy road trip (the "road" element aside, of course). However, Sunday's contest against the Nets theoretically served as the "soft underbelly" kickoff, and the Lakers didn't cooperate. Thus, ...

  16. Key party for Ron Artest in Vegas

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Okay, the actual story isn't nearly as titillating as the headline, but I just couldn't resist. In reality, Ron Artest is at the center of a wholesome, dignified event in Las Vegas on the eve of Wednesday's preseason contest against the Sacramento...
