Whicker: Terance Mann reaches peak, brings Clippers close to another

It takes about 15 minutes, depending on the line, to ride to the top of the Eiffel Tower. Terance Mann needed less than a second to scale its NBA equivalent. He didn’t do it for the view. He did it at the end of a disjoined Clippers possession late in Wednesday’s fourth quarter, in which the shot clock narrowed the viable options to one. He had to climb Rudy Gobert, the Frenchman known as the Stifle Tower. Nothing much was riding on this. The Western Conference semifinals were tied 2-2, and Kawh...

Clippers converge on Donovan Mitchell as Jazz’s injury concerns grow

LOS ANGELES — Moments after taking a hobbled jog back to the visiting locker room, Donovan Mitchell slipped back through the Utah Jazz bench and slung an arm over the shoulder of his head coach. It looked at least a little like the 24-year-old was lobbying for a return to the court as the Jazz trailed in the fourth quarter of Game 3 of their second-round playoff series against the Clippers. But as he tried to work Quin Snyder on Saturday night, Kawhi Leonard was working on the court: The Clipper...

Clippers, down 2-0 to the Utah Jazz, have issues on both ends

SALT LAKE CITY — The last time the Clippers fell behind 2-0 in a playoff series, back on May 25, they made it a point to express their unwavering confidence. Reggie Jackson wore a T-shirt adorned with a happy face to his virtual postgame news conference and signed off that night by saying: “No worries. Remember, no worries!” Clippers Coach Tyronn Lue also was unequivocally calm, shrugging off the Clippers’ first two losses at Staples Center: “I am not worried about it,” he said. “You gotta win f...

Alexander: Clippers’ task is not impossible, but it’s not easy

There are parallels, and there’s one important difference. The Clippers are down 2-0 in a series, again. They’re playing a team with a dynamic player who demands special attention, again. This time they’re coming home after losing two on the road, but those losses were to the team with the NBA’s best regular-season record. They do have a one-game winning streak at Staples Center, and the odds are it’s going to sound like a library compared to what they’ve faced in Salt Lake City this week, which...

Folk music matriarch Ellen Harper of Claremont finds there’s ‘Always a Song’

Folk music is meant to bring ordinary people together, and so when Ellen Harper was writing her memoir, she assumed a publicity tour would kick off at her family’s store, the Folk Music Center in Claremont. She could read from her book, take questions, perform a few songs. Instead her tour is being done remotely from the store, including an interview with NPR’s Terry Gross for “Fresh Air.” To pull that off the 73-year-old had to buy a new smartphone that would accommodate the required app. Durin...

Rested Clippers face willful if exhausted Nuggets in conference semifinals

Kawhi Leonard is one efficient dude. The Clipper, with the 24th best player efficiency rating in NBA history, per, took a question Wednesday about his team’s second-round opponent and delivered a succinct and precise CliffNotes report. “Got a great center in (Nikola) Jokic, (Jamal) Murray as well at the point guard spot,” Leonard said, via a Zoom video conference before practice in the bubble at Lake Buena Vista, Fla. “They play together.

Leonard Cohen's estate not praising RNC's unauthorized use of "Hallelujah"

After Trump's final speech at the Republican National Convention, Leonard Cohen's classic song "Hallelujah" was heard twice, albeit a cover recording by Tori Keller and live opera performance by Christopher Macchio. Leonard Cohen's estate did not, um, praise the use of the classic song. Now, they are "exploring their legal options." Meanwhile, Cohen's publisher, SONY/ATV, said the RNC had asked them at the last minute for permission to do the live performance and were denied. "We are surpri...

Harlan Leonard: 1940

Kansas City big bands of the 1930s were distinct at the time. A product of the city's dance and nightlife culture, the bands embraced the blues with a jump feel that became known as swing. In particular, the bands were arranged in such a way that different sections of the orchestra spent songs doing their owning thing, joining together on a song's chorus. Among the bands that exemplified the Kansas City sound were led by Benny Moten, Walter Page, Mary Lou Williams, Andy Kirk, Jay McShann and Co...

Clippers confident Paul George’s shots will start falling

Paul George is just 21 for his last 66 field goal attempts — a chilly stretch of shooting that the Clippers have met with an assured shrug. “He’s just not making shots,” coach Doc Rivers said, dutifully steering criticism away from the new Clippers superstar, who spent his off day Sunday unveiling three new basketball courts at Domenic Massari Park in his native Palmdale. “We gotta do a better job of getting him shots,” Rivers added. “(The) offense has gotta run better for him to get shots.” “It...

Will Gasol to Toronto See the Raptors Reach the NBA Finals?

With a trade for Memphis Grizzlies legend Marc Gasol, it seems the Toronto Raptors are really going all in for the NBA title this campaign. They’ve made a splash by signing the leader of the ‘grit and grind era’. The Spanish center hasn’t been at his best this term but has shown glimpses of what he could do on this Raptors side – giving them the best quality minutes from a big man in recent years. But is his shot going to go in consistently, is he still the same defensive player, and will he b...
