Clippers’ Terance Mann has breakout Game 6 effort that shows growth

LOS ANGELES — It wasn’t long ago that it looked like Clippers guard Terance Mann looked tentative and nervous in the postseason. Late in Game 5 of the team’s first-round playoff series against the Dallas Mavericks, the second-year guard passed up an open layup to a teammate for a 3-pointer that missed. It was the type of play that can happen when someone isn’t ready for the big stage. But at the time, teammate Paul George tapped Mann on the head and gave simple advice: “Next play. He was playing...

Clippers coach Tyronn Lue proving as good as advertised at game of adjustments

When the Clippers introduced Tyronn Lue as their next head coach, Steve Ballmer said he especially was impressed by the coach’s reputation as a thinker and a tinkerer. “Not that I’m an expert in game management and Xs and Os,” Ballmer, the Clippers’ owner, said last October. “But all of our staff says Ty sees the game as good or better as anybody that you’ll ever meet, which I think is awesome. “I tell you,” Ballmer added, “Ty’s my kind of guy. He wants to move, move, move, learn new things, abs...

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...

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...

Clippers hope for reinforcements in rematch with Jazz

The good news for the Clippers is that they won’t have to wait long for another shot at trying to solve the thousand-piece puzzle that is the Utah Jazz. The even better news is that they could have some of their own pieces back on Friday to help do it: Paul George (bone edema right toe) and Nicolas Batum (concussion) have been upgraded to questionable after missing their past seven and two games, respectively. Kawhi Leonard (left lower leg contusion) also is considered questionable, as he was be...

Clippers play before fans Friday for the first time since March

The last time the Clippers played with fans in the stands to witness it was March 10, on the eve of the NBA shutdown following Utah center Rudy Gobert’s positive coronavirus test. They thwacked the Golden State Warriors at Chase Center that spring night, in front of a crowd that was announced as 18,064 but reported by the Associated Press to be noticeably smaller than normal, with large pockets of empty seats reflecting the growing concern over the spreading pandemic. “I was surprised,” then-Cli...

Nuggets edge Jazz to complete comeback from 3-1 down, will play Clippers

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Nikola Jokic made the tiebreaking basket with 27 seconds left and the Denver Nuggets advanced to the second round of the playoffs by the slimmest of margins, beating the Utah Jazz 80-78 in Game 7 on Tuesday night when Mike Conley’s 3-pointer spun out at the buzzer. The Nuggets became the 12th team in NBA history to overcome a 3-1 deficit to win a series, but only after they blew a 19-point lead in this game. After Jokic’s basket, the Jazz got the ball to Donovan Mit...

2020 NBA Playoffs First Round Predictions

2020 has definitely been one for the ages with everything that’s happened. In March, the world changed because of the coronavirus and sports disappeared. Fortunately, it returned and the NBA was played in a bubble without fans in the stands. Since the NBA restart, we have seen some amazing performances. Damian Lillard, Michael Porter Jr. and Devin Booker are just a few of the guys who have had amazing performances. The Suns were the only team to go undefeated and now their future look bright as...

Gobert Nets 28, Jazz Race To Early Lead, Beat Kings 123-101

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Rudy Gobert is known for his defense. Against Sacramento, he went to the rim time and again on offense. “Rudy was like a monster, so great on offense and, as usual, defensively protecting all us,” Bojan Bogdanovic said. Gobert had a season-high 28 points and 15 rebounds and the Utah Jazz raced to a 16-point lead in the first quarter and routed the Sacramento Kings 123-101 on Saturday night. Gobert got most of his points on dunks, while Bogdanovic had six 3-pointers on his w...

Mike Conley’s Historic $153 Million Contract and What It Says About the NBA

With all of the big name trades and moves going in this NBA offseason, one marked by an increase in the overall cap limit, one story has gone quietly under the radar: the story of Mike Conley of the Memphis Grizzlies receiving the biggest contract in the history of the NBA. The deal, a 5-year $153 million contract, makes Conley just the third player ever to be awarded over $30 million a year. The other two? Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan. Few would ever bunch Conley with two of the greatest play...
