Classic Klay Thompson, a light dig at the SacKings for not taking him at No. 10 in the 2011 NBA Draft. Who did they draft? Jimmer Fredette. Gad. Other names taken ahead of him: Enes Freedom, Jan Vasely, Bismack Biyombo. Triple gad. – 12:29 AM

If you need a window into how AD’s legs are, he was just sitting on the scorer’s table during these first two free throws by Jackson. – 12:17 AM
Clippers still haven’t scored in the 4th Q, at the 7:27 mark.
They just brought Ibaka and Morris back in, who have 18 and 24 points, respectively.
AD also returns for LAL. – 12:07 AM
With 7:27 left in the fourth, the Clippers have yet to score in this quarter. Anthony Davis just checked back in. – 12:07 AM

Also, Nicki Minaj is here – 11:36 PM
Reggie Jackson is the driving force this quarter that has pushed the Clippers’ lead to 15. Hits a three, then hangs in the air and finds Marcus Morris for a three. – 11:34 PM
LAC has a 59-54 halftime lead. On one hand, they should be up double-digits. LAC shooting 57.8% FGs, but:

– 10:56 PM
HB posted up Curry for a bucket, cutting the lead to 20. Kerr immediately calls a timeout.
Thought it was to get Klay a rest. But Klay is still in the game. Must’ve been upset about the defense – 10:54 PM
Man, when Klay went for 37 in a quarter, I cussed so much on press row. Like look at this mutha…. Respectfully, of course. – 10:47 PM

But Jonathan Kuminga took the 3
The rookie’s gonna learn – 10:44 PM
Klay Thompson hits three consecutive 3-pointers then proceeds to run to the other end of the court, stand on the baseline and wave his arms to the crowd telling them to get loud.

I was going to say that the Clippers have more guys who can credibly defend AD than the Blazers did … but he’s been dunking a bunch to start this game. – 10:25 PM
Out of a timeout with 4:22 to play in the 1Q, Lue turns to reserves for the first time, inserting Eric Bledsoe for Jackson. – 10:22 PM

Tonight’s rescheduled game in Toronto has created an old-school, 4-games-in-5-nights stretch. With Zach LaVine questionable, would not be surprised to see him or even Nikola Vucevic get one night off like Bulls gave DeMar DeRozan recently. DeRozan acknowledged how much it helped. – 5:36 PM
