LeBron James took the Dukiest-type charge that ended with a loud thud on the floor. Didn’t get rewarded for the effort. – 11:52 PM

A basket by De’Aaron Fox gives the Kings at 59-57 lead over the Lakers at the half. Fox has a game-high 19 points on 8-of-12 shooting. Buddy Hield came off the bench to score 15 points, knocking down 4 of 7 from 3-point range. LeBron James has 13 points for the Lakers. – 11:38 PM
Kamenetzky Brothers @KamBrothers
Westbrook is 4-13 from the field in the first half, but he’s also got zero turnovers. The Lakers can absorb struggles with one or the other. “Both” is when things generally go sideways. AK – 11:37 PM

Halftime: Kings 59, Lakers 57
THT leads LA with 13 points off the bench. Dwight Howard has 12 points and 8 rebounds. LeBron has 11 points. The Kings are winning the 3PT and FT battles. The Lakers are dominating in the paint offensively. LA has taken care of the ball (one TO). – 11:36 PM

Harrison Barnes took a shot to the head. Elbow on top of the head from LeBron. – 11:29 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Excellent shift from Dwight Howard, who joins THT in making a big impact off the bench.
Dwight has 12 points and 8 boards, and THT 13 points, 3 boards and 2 assists. They’re a combined 11 for 16 from the field as LAL lead 51-46. – 11:27 PM
Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina
Dwight Howard doing a good job with turning this game around and reducing LeBron James’ workload at the 5. – 11:25 PM

Nice production from Dwight and THT off the bench…

Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
THT’s best stint in a while keys a 9-0 Lakers run to start the 2nd Q, producing a 35-31 lead after they’d trailed by 5 entering the period.
Horton-Tucker has 11 bench points on 5 of 6 FG’s, plus 3 boards, and a key steal digging down on screen/roll action. – 11:10 PM
Jovan Buha @jovanbuha
The Lakers have opened the second quarter on a 9-0 run to take a 35-31 lead. THT is feeling it w/ 11 points. – 11:09 PM

9-0 run from the Lakers to start the 2Q. – 11:09 PM

These have been the best, most under control minutes Talen Horton-Tucker has played in quite some time. AK – 11:08 PM
Jovan Buha @jovanbuha
First quarter: Kings 31, Lakers 26
Malik Monk has 7 points. Frank Vogel said pregame he’d consider whether to go bigger based on the context of the game. He clearly felt the need to by going to Dwight Howard early w/ SAC attacking LAL on the glass. LAL is shooting just 35.7%. – 11:06 PM
Sacramento Kings @SacramentoKings
a step back from Off-Night that we can watch all-night. pic.twitter.com/MuqsHRdZrf11:06 PM

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Feels like Talen Horton-Tucker is on a bit of a mission tonight. Starts 3 for 4 including a nice finish through Len and Haliburton.
Kings lead the Lakers 31-26 after the first quarter. – 11:04 PM

Tech on Westbrook. – 11:02 PM

A game after sticking with the small lineup, Frank Vogel goes to Dwight Howard in the first quarter after the Kings repeatedly scored at the rim. – 11:02 PM
Kamenetzky Brothers @KamBrothers
Davion Mitchell absolutely locked up Westbrook on that possession, forcing the timeout. Really impressive stuff. AK – 10:59 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
LAL trail 27-20 with 2:03 left in the 1st Q, struggling to hit shots (8 for 23) while Sacramento has converted 12 for 21 attempts. Kings have 4 TO’s to LAL’s 1 thus far. – 10:59 PM
Dave Mason @DeuceMason
Watching Westbrook is paaaainful this season – 10:57 PM
Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina
Buddy Hield drained a 3 right over Russell Westbrook. I’m sure there’s some symbolism there…. – 10:57 PM

All seven Kings to step on the court so far have made a bucket. Fox leads with 6 points. – 10:55 PM

LeBron grabbed his right knee after his missed layup. But he’s walking it off and seems fine. – 10:54 PM
Matt George @MattGeorgeSAC
I’ll always admire Buddy Hield’s confidence, even if it get him in trouble sometimes. – 10:53 PM
James Ham @James_HamNBA
Fox blows by Bradley for the lay-in. Kings up 15-13 midway through the 1Q. – 10:49 PM
Matt George @MattGeorgeSAC
Marvin Bagley has become great at creating mismatches and taking advantage of them. He hasn’t been rushing & has picked his spots, but moves quick enough to avoid double teams. – 10:47 PM
James Ham @James_HamNBA
Big rebound from Bagley. Big finish through contact for the And-1. Misses the FT. – 10:46 PM
Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina
The most impressive part of LeBron’s game that hasn’t aged: the LeBron chase-down block – 10:45 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Check “LeBron gets UP for a block” off your bingo card – 10:45 PM
James Ham @James_HamNBA
Good start for the Kings. Harrison Barnes drills the triple. 9-2. – 10:44 PM

Fox drills the 19-footer to open the scoring. 2-0 Kings. – 10:41 PM

Alvin Gentry pregame on facing the Lakers with LeBron James starting at center: “If he’s at 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 6, 7, 8 – it doesn’t matter. Obviously he’s playing at such a high level right now. The fact that he’s doing what he’s doing at the age that he is, it’s phenomenal, really.” – 10:27 PM

Vogel said it’s a bit of a surprise that L.A.’s 5th-most used line up (Westbrook, Bradley, Monk, Johnson, LeBron) has played only 36 min. together (13.5 net rating), but not really. Injuries/absences been story of season. Huge diff. compared to GSW PHX and UTA’s top lineups: pic.twitter.com/BOfYU1LeOG8:50 PM
