Kyle Goon @kylegoon Frank Vogel said he thought Anthony Davis’ fourth quarter was “all mental” tonight against the Blazers. He saw Davis was struggling with his legs in just his fourth game back from rehab, but toughed it out to get points and boards at crunch time. – 1:25 AM

Dave Early @DavidEarly Kyrie Irving said he’s confident they can turn it around despite their recent play because “I don’t know any other way.” Adds he feels they can’t be fragile and just gotta get closer as a group. He’s taking it day by day. – 12:58 AM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter Davis is up to 30 points, 15 boards and 3 blocks with 17.1 seconds to play.
LAL’s lead is 97-93 after conceding a layup. Davis and ‘Melo have split the last 3 trips to the line to keep Portland engaged. Blazers have 1 time out left. – 12:57 AM
Dave Early @DavidEarly Kyrie Irving says if he had a players only meeting he knows better than to share that with reporters to not magnify it too much. – 12:55 AM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer Kyrie Irving said he’s been in enough players-only meetings to know if the Nets did have one, he wouldn’t tell us about it. Veteran move. – 12:55 AM
Dave Early @DavidEarly Kyrie Irving says it’s a growth period for the Nets and understands Harden’s frustration with the mundane ‘get better jargon.’ Says he’s not sure “issues” is the right word, doesn’t want to make it too big of a deal. – 12:55 AM
Casey Holdahl @CHold Simons’ three of off, RoCo is called for a foul on AD and he’ll head to the line to shoot two with the Lakers leading 96-91 with 24.2 seconds to play. – 12:55 AM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed Kyrie got jokes: “I’ve been in quite a few players-only meeting, and if we have a players-only meeting, I know not to tell y’all.” – 12:54 AM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed Kyrie Irving: “The get-better jargon that we consistently use, whether it be here talking with you guys (the media), or in the locker room, it can get mundane.” – 12:53 AM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter Anthony Davis has taken over the backboards, which were a problem for LAL earlier in the game, to put his team in strong position with 52.0 seconds left.
It’s a 94-89 lead, with AD going to the line after he grabbed an offensive board, his 14th overall. – 12:52 AM
Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina Good Westbrook: He drove to the basket and drew a foul. Then, set up AD for a bucket
Bad Westbrook: Late on two closeouts that led to Blazers making a 3 both times – 12:47 AM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon Anthony Davis sequence just now:
– tough rebound over Nurk
– running block on Powell
– sky-high catch for a dunker spot entry pass and finish
He’s missed a few looks around the rim, but he’s putting in two-way effort for sure to try to break the Lakers’ losing streak. – 12:31 AM

Good ‘Dok minutes. Very isolation heavy game. No *plays* worked, but who cares. – 12:30 AM
Eric Walden @tribjazz FINAL: Jazz 108, Nuggets 104. The 5-game losing streak is over. Utah improves to 31-21 thanks to an also-decimated Denver team. Trent Forrest with a great night — 18p, 8a, 6-7 FGs. Conley 17p, 5a, 4s. Bogey, Royce, Ocho all with 15p apiece. – 12:29 AM

Rob Perez @WorldWideWob *places tin foil hat on head*
an alliance of teams colluding to make sure the Nets get the 7 seed and Kyrie cant play in either play-in tourney game, tampering fines paid for by Spencer Dinwiddie’s shitcoin the league rejected. – 12:18 AM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer Final: Kings beat the Nets 112-101. The losing streak is now six, the most ever under Steve Nash. Nic Claxton’s career night goes to waste as does James Johnson’s performance. James Harden’s performance was riddled with turnovers. On to Salt Lake City. – 12:13 AM
Sean Cunningham @SeanCunningham The Kings losing streak ends with tonight’s 112-101 victory over the Nets. Seven Kings in double figures tonight, led by Harrison Barnes’ 19 points, Buddy Hield 18, Davion Mitchell with 18.
James Harden held to 4 points. – 12:12 AM
David Hardisty @clutchfans The Sacramento Kings, losers of seven straight and 12 of their last 14, just beat James Harden (4 points?!?), Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets.
Unprotected picks. Until 2027. – 12:11 AM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer Kyrie Irving has led two fourth quarter rallies in recent games, albeit, in a losing effort. Does he have one in him tonight without the same result? – 11:59 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer Blake Griffin just drew his 23rd charge of the season to overtake Kyle Lowry for the league lead. Patty Mills had to remind him to put his hard hat on. – 11:56 PM

Casey Holdahl @CHold Portland takes their first lead of the night with a McCollum three, lakers take it back on the next possession. – 11:53 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell A bad, bad loss hangs in the balance here for the Nets. The Kings have lost seven in a row — 2-12 over their last 14 games. Harden and Kyrie are a combined 5-for-18 –Oof. – 11:53 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer End of the third quarter: This has turned into the James Johnson show. He’s got two late baskets to get him to 14 points off the bench tonight. Nets lead the Kings 86-83. This would be a bad loss if Sacramento can pull this out. – 11:47 PM
Sean Cunningham @SeanCunningham Nets lead over the Kings trimmed to 86-83 as the head to the 4th in Sacramento. Nic Claxton with the career high 21 points for Brooklyn. Kings led by Harrison Barnes’ 19 and Davion Mitchell continues to be a bright spot offensively with 16 – 11:46 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer Kings have made this a five-point game. Nets lead 80-75 with 3:34 left in the third quarter. Nets not getting a lot from Harden and Irving offensively, but can use them the most at times likes these. Sacramento’s defense isn’t too far from mine. – 11:38 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon HALFTIME: Lakers 54, Trail Blazers 51.
Norm Powell appeared to sink a catch-and-shoot jumper just before the buzzer.
Anthony Davis has 13 points and 5 rebounds, but Carmelo Anthony has been the player of the half with 18 points on 6 for 7 shooting. – 11:37 PM
Jovan Buha @jovanbuha Halftime: Lakers 54, Blazers 53
Carmelo Anthony leads the Lakers with 18 points off the bench. Anthony Davis has 13 points, five rebounds and one block. LA is shooting 52.6% but has partially negated that with their eight turnovers and Portland’s 10 offensive rebounds. – 11:37 PM
Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina Jursuf Nurkic and Anthony Davis have been in a physical battle all night. Each matchup has often ended with one of them falling to the ground – 11:33 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS All I can think about whenever Carmelo goes off like this is how much I wish he was on the 2020 team.
This dude deserves a ring. He came here to win a ring. He’s probably not gonna get a ring, and that sucks because he should’ve been a cult hero two years ago. – 11:31 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter Portland hit 3 straight 3’s to nearly erase LAL’s double-digit lead, and LAL needed a last-second-of-the-shot-clock triple from ‘Melo (his 4th) to snap the run.
AD scored on the next trip on a pass from Westbrook to put LAL up 44-38. – 11:27 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer Halftime: Nets lead the Kings 62-54. Sacramento has shaved BK’s lead down a few times and they’ve responded each time. Nic Claxton on pace to shatter his career-high and Kyrie Irving’s dozen has been huge. James Johnson giving the Nets’ good minutes tonight. – 11:06 PM
Jovan Buha @jovanbuha First quarter: Lakers 28, Blazers 16
A dominant first frame from LA, who shot 54.5% and held the Blazers to 26.1% shooting. Carmelo Anthony turned back the clock to when he was automatic at Crypto.com Arena earlier in the season, scoring 10 points on 4-of-4 FGs. – 11:06 PM

Mike Trudell @LakersReporter ‘Melo has it going early, pulling up in transition for his 2nd 3 to go with an earlier 2, enough to put LAL up 24-12 at the 2:30 mark. – 10:59 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer Kyrie Irving overpassed to Patty Mills and Mills just Derek Jeter-ed into the courtside seats. Appears he collided with a photographer. – 10:53 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon Another urgent offensive start from Anthony Davis, hitting three of his first four shots while also positioning himself for a few boards. Lakers lead 16-8 early. – 10:50 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter Early foul trouble for Stanley Johnson (2 PF) brings Carmelo Anthony into the game at the 9:04 mark, with LAL up 5-4 as things get going against Portland. – 10:46 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer End of the first quarter: Nets lead the Kings 32-23. Kyrie Irving helped the Nets score 10 straight with a pair of pullup 3s. Nic Claxton already has 11. Hot start for him. – 10:38 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter In his last two games (at Philly, at Atlanta), Anthony Davis is a combined 17 for 21 in the paint.
Portland ranks 20th in points in the paint allowed this season (47.4). Should see a healthy dose of AD inside tonight. – 10:34 PM
Larry Lage @LarryLage Reached #Michigan AD Warde Manuel for his reaction to the news that Jim #Harbaugh is staying after interviewing with the Vikings: “I’m very happy,” Michigan athletic director Warde Manuel wrote in a text. – 10:09 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer Greetings from Sacramento. First time here. Nets-Kings tip shortly. Brooklyn looking to avoid losing its sixth game in a row. James Harden and Kyrie Irving both playing in the back-to-back. – 10:02 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen Rockets 90, Cavaliers 83 after 3. Kevin Love started 1 of 7. He is 6 of 10 since, has 19 points, 11 rebounds in 20 minutes. Rockets will need their usual early fourth boost from the Christopher-Martin second unit. – 10:01 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon Lakers keep the same starting lineup as the last two games AD has been healthy: AD, Russ, Monk, Johnson, Bradley. – 10:00 PM
Salman Ali @SalmanAliNBA Kevin Love is the latest example in why you should maybe wait more than one season before calling a player washed. – 9:59 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen Good lesson for Alperen Sengun: The more gray hairs on an opponent, the fewer tricks will work. Kevin Love has seen all that stuff a time or two. – 9:59 PM
