As a 21st-century, Internet-savvy (I hope) sportswriter, I'm always on the lookout for new ways to take Bleacher Report material to the masses.

Tonight, that effort leads me to my second live-Twitter event, a stream-of-consciousness description of the Western Conference semifinal series opener between the Houston Rockets and the Los Angeles Lakers

If you're looking for instant feedback on an amazing highlight, a nasty dunk, a strange announcer quote, or any other thoughts about the Lakers and Rockets from my couch in Ohio, I'd love to have you come along for the ride.

Wondering how long it will take Ron Artest to get his first technical? Or how many points Kobe will score to prove his "sore throat" doesn't bother him? Follow along beginning at 10:30 pm ET by visiting or searching #LALHOU. 

You can get in on the action too—just make sure to tag your Twitter posts with #LALHOU so everyone can see them.

Of course, since it's a "Bleacher Report Live-Twitter," I'll post a recap of my tweets tonight or tomorrow on B/R as well, in case you couldn't join us live.

Oh, and one last thing in the "Official Disclaimer" department: I am a Lakers fan and won't be hiding that fact during my analysis. Consider yourself warned.

Happy Tweeting!
