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...

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...

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...

With Anthony Davis’ return, Lakers can work out a closing lineup

Whether it’s Thursday, Saturday or maybe even a little longer, the Lakers figure to add a powerful weapon when Anthony Davis wedges back into the lineup in the coming week. It was easy to sense two months’ worth of fatigue and burnout from patchwork lineups and rotations as forward Kyle Kuzma offered some sentiments on Davis’ imminent return: “His ass better play. … Hopefully, he’s ready to go.” The Lakers (35-23) are a team that has been desperately waiting to be whole – not just because Davis ...

Top 5 Western Conference Teams After Trade Deadline

Now that we have the Eastern Conference out of the way, let’s head out west. The Western Conference saw their fair share of happenings before the trade deadline. The Lakers acquired another big man, but it was not via the trade. Andre Drummond finally was bought out by the Cavs and signed with the Lakers. The Denver Nuggets made a huge splash by landing Aaron Gordon from the Orlando Magic. Denver also added JaVale McGee also and that will help defensively. The Clippers added championship exper...

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.

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...

Relationship Between Jazz’s Rudy Gobert & Donovan Mitchell “Unsalvageable” After Coronavirus

It seems like it was forever ago when Utah Jazz’s Rudy Gobert made light of the COVID-19 situation by touching all of the mics during a press conference before testing positive and essentially shutting down sports. Not only did Gobert contract the virus that has caused a worldwide pandemic, but he also gave it to fellow teammate and burgeoning superstar Donovan Mitchell. While Gobert has since apologized for his reckless actions and donated $500k to support those who have been affected by cor...

Detroit Pistons Player Christian Wood Tests Positive for Coronavirus

Detroit Pistons forward Christian Wood is the latest NBA player to test positive for coronavirus. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski broke the news last night after receiving word for a league source. The Pistons didn’t mention Wood by name, but released a statement saying that a player had tested positive for the virus and would “remain in isolation and under the care of the team’s medical staff.” One source told The Athletic Saturday night (Mar. 14) that Wood, who is 25 years old, is “100 percent OK” a...

Waka Flocka Flame: The Coronavirus is “Fake” & “Minorities Can’t Catch It”

Waka Flocka Flame says he’s not worried about the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic because he believes minorities are immune to it. During a recent interview on Real 92.3 LA, Waka discussed a range of topics, including his marriage with Tammy Rivera and his new WEtv show reality show Waka & Tammy: What the Flocka. He also said that because of his ethnicity, he and countless others can’t catch the coronavirus, despite actual evidence proving otherwise. “It’s fake… Minorities can’t catch it,” he said...

It started as a joke: Before leaving a post-practice interview session Rudy Gobert touched all the tape recorders that were placed before him on a table, devices that reporters who cover the Utah Jazz were using during an availability with him on Monday before a game with the Detroit Pistons. Gobert is now the NBA's Patient Zero for coronavirus after becoming the first player in the league to test positive, a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press. ''As a...

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.

The New Orleans Pelicans were on the short end of a missed foul call by the officials that made the difference in Monday night's game against Utah.It all played out in the final seconds as the Jazz held a 128-126 lead.
