Los Angeles Lakers vs. New York Knicks

The Lakers are starting off strong. We've got our new Laker Jabari Brown, an All Star from the D League. I can't wait to see Jabari's game with the Lakers. I hear he's a great shooter. Tarik Black already has 5 rebounds halfway through the first quarter. Ryan Kelly is clearly trying to tank tonight. Perhaps both teams are trying to tank tonight to get the top five draft pick. With Byron Scott coaching us, I'm not sure he's going to be cool with that. He just threw up a shot that went over the backboard. Good L-rd! Since the All Star break Ed Davis has been leading the Lakers in scoring. The first quarter ended with a score of 25-28 Lakers. 

The Knicks are showing some great ball movement. Tim Hardaway Jr. Just made a 27 foot, three point jumper. The Lakers still haven't hit a three pointer. Jabari Brown is leading the Lakers in scoring right now. The Knicks have made 5 three pointers so far and the Lakers are 0/2. The game is tied at 41 with 6:01 to go in the half. Tim Hardaway Jr. is having a pretty great game. Jordan Clarkson just had his second bucket of the night with 3:13 to go. The Lakers are trailing by 3. Wayne Ellington just got the Lakers first three point shot of the night. The Lakers gave up about 35 points to the worst team in the NBA. Whoa! We can't be that bad, can we?! We're going into the half with a score of 60–54 Knicks. 

Jordan Clarkson comes into the half making a 27 foot, three point jumper. The Knicks now have an 8 point lead, making it their biggest lead of the game so far. Wesley Johnson still hasn't made a basket. Wow, these Lakers are just throwing the ball into the hands of the opponent over and over again. Jabari Brown is finally in the game again with 3:29 left to go in the third. What took them so long to put him back in the game?! Langston Galloway just had a beautiful dunk, as the Lakers scrambled around trying to stop him. Jeremy Lin just had a sweet block against Shane Larkin's 4 foot jumper. We don't see Jeremy Lin blocking too many shots. That was nice to see. Tim Hardaway Jr. just made a beautiful 26 foot, three point jumper. Jeremy Lin is having a great game. We're heading into the fourth quarter with a score of 80–74 Knicks. 

Shane Larkin just made a driving layup. Jabari Brown just got a nice assist, getting the ball to Carlos Boozer for an easy basket. I already like this kid. I'm looking forward to seeing him play with Kobe next season. I'd love to see Jabari get more minutes. He has crazy potential. The Lakers signed Jabari Brown to a 10 day contract, so I'm just hoping at this point. As far as Ryan Kelly, I see D League in his near future. But that's just my humble, little opinion. Ryan Kelly has a mere 2 assists, being his only stat within his 15 minutes. There's no way that the Lakers are going to bring him back. Good bye Felicia!! Wesley Johnson could use some time in the D League as well.

Wayne Ellington just hit a nice three point shot, making it the Lakers third three pointer of the game. Jordan Clarkson just hit a three pointer, making it a five point game. Jordan Hill is having a great game tonight. He just made a great three pointer. That's the second three pointer of Jordan Hill's career. The Knicks take the win with a final score of 101-94. Jordan Hill had 19 points, 10 rebounds, and 1 assist. Tarik Black had 10 points, 11 rebounds, and 1 assist. Jeremy Lin had 14 points, rebounds, and 7 assists. Jabari Brown had 7 points, 2 rebounds, and 1 assist. #GoLakers
