How exciting has the NBA playoffs been? We have now arrived at the Western Conference Finals. The Phoenix Suns will take on the Los Angeles Clippers for a spot in the NBA Finals. The Suns are still searching for their first NBA title. The Los Angeles Clippers have finally reached the conference finals in their 51 year history.

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...

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 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...

Ivica Zubac back in Clippers’ starting lineup for Game 2 against Jazz

SALT LAKE CITY — Nineteen minutes, 21 minutes, 11 minutes. Eight, 20, five. Three, 20 … TBD. Ivica Zubac’s minutes have fluctuated wildly so far this postseason, and looking ahead Wednesday to Game 2 against the Utah Jazz, the 7-foot Croatian center reiterated that he was game for whatever Coach Tyronn Lue needed. Lue needed him back on the floor at tip-off, lining up immediately with three-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert. Down 1-0 in their Western Conference semifinal series a...

Clippers, Jazz are out to right last postseason’s wrongs

The second-round Western Conference playoff pairing that tips off Tuesday at Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City will feature the top-seeded Jazz, the fourth-seeded Clippers and the specter of the 2020 Denver Nuggets. Both the Clippers and Jazz were on the wrong side of history in the Florida bubble, both victims of a Denver team that became the first in NBA history to come all the way back from a 3-1 deficit in consecutive playoff series – starting in the first round against Utah and then in the con...

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...

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...

NBA players, coaches keep speaking up for Breonna Taylor and Black Lives Matter

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — It’s been possibly the most oft-repeated answer to any question asked in the NBA bubble. And it rarely matters what the question is. Justice for Breonna Taylor, players have said. Many, many players. There’s been a movement afoot at the Disney campus of players using their media time to fan the heat of attention on Taylor, who was killed by three Louisville police officers who have not been charged with a crime. She has since become one of the most prominent faces in Ame...

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...

Paul George, Clippers unveil new courts in Palmdale

PALMDALE — When Paul George’s high school basketball coach Tom Hegre heard his former player was feeling the affects of flu Saturday night during the Clippers’ loss to the Utah Jazz, it didn’t cross his mind that he wouldn’t show up in his native Palmdale on Sunday for Paul George Day. “I mean, I know he’s down with the flu and had the flu last night, but I was talking to some of the ESPN guys this morning and they said, ‘So he’s coming,’ ” said Hegre, who remains the head boys’ basketball coach...

Can Oklahoma City Upset Portland in the First Round?

The NBA playoffs is off and running and things are about to get interesting. March Madness is my favorite sporting event, but the NBA playoffs are right up there with it. For me, the most intriguing first round series takes place in the West. The Portland Trailblazers will host the Oklahoma City Thunder in a series that could and should go seven games. In my first round predictions for the Western Conference, my money is on the Oklahoma City Thunder. With the Trailblazers having the homecourt ...

Daddy’s Hangout 2019 Top 4 NBA MVP Candidates

With little over a month until the NBA regular season is over, there’s still a lot of basketball to be played. In the Eastern Conference, there seems to be a two-team race for the top spot. Milwaukee is currently on a two-game losing streak but lead Toronto by 2 games. In the West, Golden State also lead the Denver Nuggets by two games. While these races in both conferences are close, the one for league MVP is also creating division amongst the candidates. James Harden is the defending MVP; ca...

Last night I was able to start a new winning streak by getting both games right. Portland was able to overcome the Pelicans as 5 players finished the game in double figures. Damian Lilard had an off night, but C.J. McCollum lead the team with 23 points on 15 shots. In this game, Anthony Davis left the game after five minutes with a knee injury and didn’t return, but DeMarcus Cousins lead New Orleans with 39 points.
