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...

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 put Luke Kennard on standby

LOS ANGELES — Before he’d even played an official minute in a Clippers uniform, the team signed fourth-year guard Luke Kennard to a four-year, $64 million contract extension on Dec. 21 (of which $56 million is guaranteed and another $8 million is incentivized). By mid-February, Kennard found himself having a conversation with Clippers Coach Tyronn Lue about platooning with Terance Mann, the multi-positional second-year player. “It can go back and forth,” Lue said Sunday, via Zoom video conferenc...

How Frank Vogel’s ‘sabbatical’ year rejuvenated him for the Lakers job

It might have been the most valuable film session Shaka Smart took part in all of last season. Theoretically, Frank Vogel was his guest at the University of Texas, there to watch his practices and study his players and plays. But for five breezy hours in the film room with the then-unemployed head coach, Smart was hard-pressed to say who was learning more as Vogel talked to him about how to disrupt the pick-and-roll attacks of the Longhorns’ upcoming opponent. “The NBA guys, they’re ahead of us ...
