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: The 3-point shot is thriving in Utah, but it began in Anaheim

As the Utah Jazz approached Wednesday night’s Game 5 as if the 3-point line were the Berlin Wall, the friends and relatives of Les Selvage must have been smiling. The Jazz took 37 shots in the first half of what became . Thirty were launched from behind the 3-point line, which the American Basketball Association brought us in 1967. Selvage represents a rough thru-line between those days and Wednesday. He attempted 5.9 3-point shots per game for the Anaheim Amigos, who moved to Los Angeles the n...

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...

Netflix docuseries ‘This Is Pop’ explores the making of music from Abba to Zapp

When the creators of the new Netflix series “This Is Pop” began thinking about how to tell the story of pop music in an eight-episode docuseries, they looked first to the model of their ongoing series “Hip-Hop Evolution,” which last year finished its fourth season on the same streaming network. That series traced the development of rap and hip-hop from a now-legendary party in the Bronx in 1973 where DJ Kool Herc set in motion a series of events that would lead to the genre and its many offshoot...

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...

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...

Jazz take exception to Clippers’ path to playoffs

SALT LAKE CITY — Remember how the Clippers backpedaled into the No. 4 playoff seed with regular-season-closing losses to Houston and Oklahoma City, the teams at the bottom of the Western Conference standings?

How we made Three Lions: David Baddiel and Ian Broudie on England’s Euro 96 anthem

‘I heard German fans singing it after they knocked England out. I had to resist throwing a TV out of the window’I knew that New Order had done a football song [Italia 1990’s World in Motion], but I was hesitant when the FA asked me to do Euro 96. Fantasy Football with Frank Skinner and David Baddiel was big on TV at the time, so I thought they should sing it and the band could go uncredited. But everybody was like, “No. It’s got to be the Lightning Seeds as well.” Continue reading...
