James Boyd @RomeovilleKid
Malcolm Brogdon draws a foul on Avery Bradley. He looks explosive, so this is encouraging. #Pacers trail 15-10 after Brogdon’s two made FTs. – 10:53 PM

James Boyd @RomeovilleKid
Malcolm Brogdon scores on a blow by layup. Looked pretty good on that move. #Pacers10:50 PM

Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Nice start for the Lakers defensively, as Indy opens 1 for 5 on mostly contested perimeter shots.
LAL took advantage with a 7-0 run to make it 9-2 into the first time out, with an and-1 FT from LeBron still coming. – 10:47 PM

James Boyd @RomeovilleKid
Well, Westbrook hits 3 and then LeBron goes coast-to-coast for an and-1 layup. Lakers lead the #Pacers 9-1. LeBron getting a free throw after this Indiana timeout. – 10:46 PM

Jovan Buha @jovanbuha
A quick 9-2 start from the Lakers, with LeBron James — after a spectacular finish over Domantas Sabonis — heading to the FT line with a chance to make it 10-2 less than three minutes into this game. – 10:46 PM

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
It’s a 9-2 start for the Lakers after that LeBron twirling and-one basket. Indiana’s offense, as expected, is not so good to start. – 10:46 PM

Dave McMenamin @mcten
New story: Fifteen months removed from guiding the Lakers to the championship, Frank Vogel answered questions about his job security. Again. es.pn/3nH1iSf10:46 PM

James Boyd @RomeovilleKid
Sabonis put the #Pacers on the board with a layup. – 10:44 PM

James Boyd @RomeovilleKid
Bron with a reverse layup to start the game. #Pacers10:43 PM

Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
14 assists ties a career-high for Ja Morant. Most since Feb. 29, 2020 vs. the Lakers. – 10:32 PM

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Even as reports fly that Frank Vogel’s job is on the line, the Lakers’ coach pushed back on it before tip-off today, saying that his relationship with the front office is “healthy” and the same as it has been for his entire tenure: ocregister.com/2022/01/19/lak…10:28 PM

Tom Orsborn @tom_orsborn
If Dejounte is done for the night, he’ll finish with 23 points, 14 assists and 10 rebounds in 30 minutes for his 8th triple-double of the season. He’s an assist shy of matching his career high posted on Oct. 26 against the Lakers. – 10:24 PM

Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina
Frank Vogel on uncertain job security: “It’s really not up to me on whether it’s fair or not. It comes with the territory. It comes with being the Lakers coach. There’s high expectations. This fan base really cares. It’s a big market. And I wouldn’t want it any other way.” – 9:20 PM

Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Rick Carlisle said that he is hopeful Malcolm Brogdon – who’s been battling Achilles soreness and played only one game in the last month – would play tonight. Added it’s been tough without him, and that Brogdon was the team’s leader. He’s officially a game-time decision. – 9:13 PM

James Boyd @RomeovilleKid
Frank Vogel said Carmelo Anthony (lower back tightness) will play tonight by the way. #Pacers9:11 PM

Otto Porter is out for the Warriors vs Pacers tomorrow on the front side of a back-to-back. Nothing else notable on injury report. – 8:59 PM

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Frank Vogel says his relationship with the Lakers front office is “healthy” and that everyone in the organization is working together to improve the team. He says he’s “blocking out” the noise about his job security and is continuing to lock in on winning night to night. – 8:54 PM

Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina
Lakers coach Frank Vogel described the collaboration between him and the front office as “healthy” and “same it’s been the last three years.” – 8:54 PM

Dave McMenamin @mcten
Frank Vogel says there’s been nothing abnormal about his level of interaction with the Lakers’ front office as of late. Business as usual. As far as speculation about his job, he says, “I wouldn’t want it any other way.” Shows there is a standard and expectation as LAL coach. – 8:52 PM

Noah Levick @NoahLevick
Andre Drummond just passed Darryl Dawkins to move into sole possession of 96th place on the NBA’s all-time blocks list.
The players right below Drummond are now Dawkins, Kevin Durant and LeBron James. – 7:58 PM

James Plowright @British_Buzz
Melo hasn’t tried a full court pass like that for some time, I wonder if it’s something to do with it being a National tc game? Probably over thinking it, but he has definitely dialed it back this season – 7:56 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
From @BKN_NETSPR: LaMarcus Aldridge’s 17 points in tonight’s first half are tied for his most points scored in a half this season.
Aldridge tallied 17 points in the second half on 10/29 vs. Indiana. – 7:54 PM
