Oklahoma City is back in action tonight as the Thunder are in LA to take on the Lakers at 9:30 p.m. Our very own Thunder reporter Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) will be at the Staples Center tweeting out updates, so be sure to follow along to keep up with all of the action. 

Hard to believe, but down the stretch, 85 year-old Kobe Bryant completely shut down an in-his-prime KD. Thank God for Russ. Amen. @News9

That's not a foul. Not even close

Kobe misses, OKC rebounds. #News9Thunder

I'm not buying for a minute that Billy Donovan doesn't coach solid defense. This repeatedly inept #Thunder D is due to missing focus/effort.

Come on Thunder !!!

2:32 left, game tied, the crowd is a factor now. #News9Thunder

Down 3. This would be a demoralizing loss. And unacceptable.

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) January 9, 2016

Somebody stop Lou! Lakers lead 104-101 #News9Thunder

Uh-oh. Waiters back 2 recent form after stellar game v Memphis. 1-for-7, 2 pts, 21 minutes. If continues, gotta try to pedal him for sumpin'

Morrow's really improved game off the dribble. Always been (or been used as) spot-up sniper. Still can't defend his way out of wet paper bag

Cam @campayne bringing juice to 'Der. Needs as much playing time as possible before start playing for keeps. Solid draft pick---& attitude.

Thunder yield 32 to the Los Angeles Lakers in 3rd quarter. We've got a 4th quarter game & KD & Russ have played well.

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) January 9, 2016

Kanter liking LA, up to 15 points. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) January 9, 2016

Thunder 90 Lakers 85 after 3 #News9Thunder

Love it when Rusty looks to pass 1st. When you're 1 of planet's elite scorers & u do that, it says a lot about you...& it's Point Avalanche

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) January 9, 2016

Kobe's 2015-16 offensive game so limp he'd go to OT in a 1-on-1 w Andre Roberson. However, not surprisingly, 24 is feasting on #Thunder D.

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) January 9, 2016

Love me some Serge from 20. But have given up on him putting it on the floor. Potential wasted. Turnover-Waiting'-to-happen.

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) January 9, 2016

OKC up 60-53 Half Russ-17pts, KD-12pts. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) January 9, 2016

Russ redeems with another impressive layup. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) January 9, 2016

Pulling away? OKC up 8 Russ and KD combined 25 pts. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) January 9, 2016

#Lakers should be down 10 to the OKC Blue. And the Blue can't win an intrasquad scrimmage. #Thunder by 4. @News9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) January 9, 2016

Great D by KD on Kobe. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) January 9, 2016

Lakers heat up, Thunder lead down to one. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) January 9, 2016

Kobe ignites the crowd #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) January 9, 2016

Thunder 32 Lakers 28 after one. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) January 9, 2016

Russ with a dramatic two for the LA crowd. Russ-9pts. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) January 9, 2016

Russ' pass-first emphasis rubbing off on unlikely mates. Adams leading break w crisp point-guard like assist. 19-15 Good Guys.

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) January 9, 2016

All 5 OKC starters have scored, Thunder up 19-15 #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) January 9, 2016

Nice. Adams. Baskets. Shades of Alcindor ... er Kareem. Would really help Big Blue if the Big Kiwi developed an offensive game.

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) January 9, 2016

Aughhhh! feels like Christmas! Mike Breen and Mark Jackson w TV call. No grinding teeth. Easy listen. Informative, unbiased. #Thunder #News9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) January 9, 2016

Kobe Bryant will start tonight. D'Angelo Russell's availability is still uncertain.
