What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Interesting: a second shift for Dwight in this quarter. He’s got a team-high 10 points and LeBron is still on the bench with about 3 min to go. – 6:59 PM
Larry Lage @LarryLage
#Pistons fans were ready to get all fired up after Davis missed 2 dunk attempts, but Cunningham missed a 3 – badly to the left – to fall to 0-6 beyond the arc and 3-12 overall as Lakers lead 56-53 late 2Q – 6:56 PM
Rod Beard @detnewsRodBeard
#Lakers 56, #Pistons 53, 3:40 2Q
Diallo: 11 pts, 3 rebs
F. Jackson: 8 pts
DET reserves: 27 pts
DET starters: 26 pts – 6:56 PM
Kamenetzky Brothers @KamBrothers
A big problem for the Lakers is they don’t convert at the rim well enough for a team that wants to live there. AK – 6:56 PM
Rod Beard @detnewsRodBeard
That’s an A-plus block by #Pistons Isaiah Stewart on Anthony Davis. – 6:55 PM
James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Isaiah Stewart with a dime there – 6:52 PM

Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Melo and Dwight found their respective scoring touch after the two were on the floor during a Pistons run that put DET up 7, helping put LAL back in front, at 51-49, on ‘Melo’s and-1 jumper.
He’s up to 8 points, while Howard had 10, including a corner 3. – 6:51 PM
Bill Oram @billoram
Lakers on an 11-2 run after falling behind by seven points here in Detroit. Good answer after it looked like the Pistons were going to be able to pick apart this LA defense. – 6:51 PM
Kamenetzky Brothers @KamBrothers
I’ll give Dwight props. No hesitation on that three. If you’re gonna take it, don’t screw around. AK – 6:50 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
Dwight Howard is the most reliable jump shooter in the Lakers what the fuck is going on? – 6:48 PM
Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Josh Jackson and Hamidou Diallo competed against each other for the last wing spot. Turns out they have good chemistry together. – 6:48 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
LeBron is playing defense like he’s trying to get Jae Crowder and Isaiah Thomas traded. – 6:47 PM
Rod Beard @detnewsRodBeard
#Pistons Hamidou Diallo is doing many hoodrat things…friends involved. pic.twitter.com/eYHR0rlRi26:47 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
The Pistons are 9 for 12 to start the second quarter. – 6:47 PM
James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Josh Jackson with an oop to Diallo. These two together is entertaining. – 6:47 PM
James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Hami hit a 3 that LeBron let him take. LeBron just shook his head after. – 6:46 PM
Kamenetzky Brothers @KamBrothers
The Lakers are starting to play like a team that’s hyperaware the pieces don’t fit, and have lost the confidence to convince themselves otherwise. AK – 6:45 PM
Ryan Ward @RyanWardLA
Pistons are a title contender, right?! – 6:45 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Pistons outworked LAL on the past few possessions, resulting in a 39-35 Detroit lead after an 11-3 run. – 6:45 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
I’d love to see the Lakers play with the effort the Pistons have this quarter. How many more losses before they’re desperate enough to do so? – 6:43 PM
Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Great minutes for Hami so far, so much hustle. Pistons bench as a whole is playing with a ton of energy. Lakers look lethargic – 6:43 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
The lakers up here standing around like they are on game 10 of the lunchtime lifetime fitness run and they just wanna go back to work – 6:43 PM
Matt Dery @DerySpeaks
Just turned on #Pistons game. Two observations:
1. Frank Jackson’s mustache is pretty savage.
2. This #Lakers all star lineup on the floor from 2012 is pretty sweet. LA should see if Roy Hibbert or Deron Williams are available. – 6:43 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
A lineup with LeBron, Melo, Monk, Dwight and THT is getting cooked by Frank Jackson and Hamidou Diallo. Welp. – 6:42 PM
James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
The Pistons’ bench is playing outstanding tonight. Very active and unselfish with the ball. Frank Jackson with a game-high 8 points, Diallo with 6. They’re a combined 6-of-9 from the floor. – 6:42 PM
Rod Beard @detnewsRodBeard
#Pistons 39, #Lakers 35, 8:43 2Q
DET is showing some hustle and want-to, getting to 5-/50 balls and getting extra chances. – 6:42 PM

Cade over AD for a TOUGH finish 😤

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
just realized Frank Jackson is the one with a moustache and i am SHOOK – 6:39 PM
James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
The Lakers are running a zone against Detroit, and it literally takes away their weakness but plays to their strength haha. Diallo has two shots at the rim already. – 6:38 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Lakers start the quarter in a zone, and Diallo has already scored a pair of baskets inside against it. – 6:38 PM
Rod Beard @detnewsRodBeard
#Pistons Hamidou Diallo has been pretty good since he got back in the rotation. – 6:37 PM
James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Great hustle by Hami there, and an even better pass by Josh Jackson – 6:37 PM

🔹 @SaddiqBey: 5 PTS / 1 AST / 2-3 FG
🔹 @Jerami Grant, @Isaiah Stewart, and @Trey Lyles with 4 PTS each pic.twitter.com/S6Umdurmjb6:36 PM

Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
LAL exit the 1st Q with a 30-26 lead in Detroit.
They hit 54% of their shots, and out-boarded the Pistons 14-10.
Detroit didn’t shoot well (42%) but turned it over just once to LAL’s 3 times. – 6:36 PM
Bill Oram @billoram
Lakers lead 30-26 after the first quarter. Russ had 8 points and the team shot 54.2% from the field. Cade Cunningham had 6 points and a nice finish over AD, but is 0-for-4 from 3. – 6:35 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
That subtle play is what I love about Cade
Pushed hard in transition. Manipulated the defense. Made the right basketball play and found frank jackson for three in the corner – 6:35 PM
Bob Garcia @bgarciaivsports
Karl Malone chose to justify his controversial elbowing that left Isiah Thomas bloody and needing 40 stitches.

Lakers open 30-26 first-quarter lead over Pistons behind 8 points from Russell Westbrook. – 6:35 PM
James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
END OF 1Q: Lakers 30, Pistons 26
Cade Cunningham: 6 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists (played the entire quarter)
Saddiq Bey: 5 points
Grant/Stewart/Lyles: 4 points each – 6:34 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Took the Lakers 11 minutes to hit any threes, but two come at the end of the first to help give them a 30-26 lead on Detroit in a game they really need to win. – 6:34 PM
Rod Beard @detnewsRodBeard
End 1Q: #Lakers 30, #Pistons 26
Cunningham: 6 pts, 4 rebs, 3 assts

Detroit Pistons @DetroitPistons
Good defense + Good offense = @Jerami Grant Slam 🚨

Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Cade Cunningham is gonna be special – 6:32 PM
James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Pistons’ movement offensively has been good. Defense has been solid. Only difference so far has been Anthony Davis’ defense. – 6:30 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Better board work thus far: 12-8 for LAL. – 6:30 PM
Rod Beard @detnewsRodBeard
Saddiq Bey (5 pts) has the last two #Pistons baskets, and DET is within 20-17, 4:22 1Q. – 6:23 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
LeBron got to the rim with LAL up 6, but wasn’t able to finish, and Detroit got an open transition 3 on the other end.
Had a chance to be +8 in the Jordan-at-center lineup, instead it’s 20-17 with ‘Melo about to check in. – 6:23 PM
James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Saddiq with a triple to cut Detroit’s deficit to three. He’s got a team-high five points. – 6:23 PM
James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Ideally, tonight would be the night you’d probably see a lot of Stewart-Olynyk minutes. Lakers are just too big for Detroit – 6:22 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
With 3 Davis buckets right at the rim, 2 of them coming in transition, the Lakers hold an early 16-12 lead at Detroit.
Westbrook has a pair of mid-range pull-up J’s, and LeBron 2 FG’s to go with a DJ dunk.
LAL are 8 of 11, and DET 6 of 12, into the first time out. – 6:18 PM
James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Entertaining game so far. Lakers 16, Pistons 12 with 6:45 left in the 1Q. Cade, Stewart and Grant all have four points. – 6:17 PM
Rod Beard @detnewsRodBeard
#Lakers 16, #Pistons 12, 6:45 1Q
Cunningham/Grant/Stewart: 4 pts each
DET is 6-of-12 FG – 6:17 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
The Lakers are pushing pace early: Davis has scored on outlet passes three times in the first five minutes. – 6:17 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
Rare cross-sport comparison: Cade Cunningham reminds me a bit of prime Le’Veon Bell. His patience is such an asset, but he’s still very explosive. – 6:15 PM
James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Pistons’ defense has been solid to start, and CoJo and Cade have been catalysts. – 6:15 PM
James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Stewart on Davis, Grant on Deandre Jordan to start – 6:11 PM
Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Prime opportunity for Saben Lee tonight with Killian out. Was wondering if they would eventually sit Killian to give his hand time to heal – 6:07 PM
Rod Beard @detnewsRodBeard
Former #Pistons on #Lakers roster: Avery Bradley, D’Andre Jordan, Wayne Ellington and Carmelo Anthony (well, almost). – 6:06 PM

Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
The Lakers are playing the Pistons. They should be able to win this game even with suboptimal lineup decisions, but if they do, we’re going to have to hear all of these quotes from Vogel about what a difference DJ made. It’ll enable more bad decisions. – 5:47 PM

Frank Vogel says Austin Reaves is feeling good, but is following recommendations to rest his hamstring. He will be back sooner than Trevor Ariza, who has also been seen working out before games but will need more time. – 4:37 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Frank Vogel on Austin Reaves, who’s been out with a hamstring injury: “Austin feels really good. If it was up to him, he’d be back already.”
Sounds like he’s close. Trevor Ariza, meanwhile, is still a ways away, Vogel added. – 4:37 PM
Brad Turner @BA_Turner
Austin Reaves feels good with hamstring, Vogel said. Getting better – 4:37 PM

That muffed punt bounced right into Westbrook’s hands. The doink from Crosby. The roughing call on the INT. Even w/o it, the 30-yard line had the tackle on what would have been a pick-6. All the bounces are going Vikings way in the first half. – 2:06 PM
