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...

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...

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...

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? Utah Jazz coach Quin Snyder does. He gave the public a glimpse at the Jazz’s bulletin board on Tuesday morning, when he told reporters: “Obviously, we’re a matchup that the Clippers felt like was an advantageous matchup for them.” At the time, Clippers coach Tyronn Lue said it was a matter ...

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 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...

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...

Atlanta Losing Streak Ends at 8; Beats Cleveland

Coming off LeBron James’ 57-point performance, it appeared the Cavaliers had finally gained some momentum. A team that hadn’t won since its season opener proved otherwise. Dennis Schroder scored 28 points and the injury-riddled Atlanta Hawks ended an eight-game losing streak, beating skidding Cleveland 117-115 on Sunday. The Hawks hadn’t won since beating Dallas on Oct. 18 and were missing five players, but the Cavaliers went down to yet another puzzling loss. James, who had 26 points and 13 r...

Trouble in Cleveland as LeBron James and Tristan Thompson Go at It

March wasn’t a good month for the Cleveland Cavaliers. After a 9-2 record in February, the defending NBA Champs took on a season-high 17 games in March, with 12 of them being on the road. And it didn’t go too great. They finished 7-10 and are now a half game behind the Boston Celtics in the East standings. And it seems like the tough month and less than stellar performance is taking its toll. Sunday night (Apr. 2), in a double overtime victory over the Pacers, league star LeBron James got into a...

Cleveland Finally Wins a Championship, and A Whole Mess of Ugly Cries Ensue

Sure, it was impressive. As LeBron said, “Against all odds. Against all odds,” the Cavs managed to pull out a game 7 victory against the Warriors and become the NBA champions. And apparently, it was an emotional moment for James and the Cavs. As soon as the final buzzer sounded, cementing the Cavs 93-89 victory, the tears started a rolling. The cameras immediately cut to LeBron James, and what was he doing? Jumping around in celebration? Hugging fellow teammates, like Kyrie Irving who made the g...

Steph Curry Fouled Out, Lost His Sh*t, Threw His Mouthpiece at a Fan and Was Ejected From Game 6

Game 6 of the 2016 NBA Finals ended up being better than it should have been. With the Warriors scoring only 11 points in the 1st quarter, it looked like it’d be a blowout in favor of the Cavs. And while they ended up winning, forcing a game 7 back in Oracle Arena on Sunday, the highlight of the night had to come with about 4 minutes left in the 4th quarter. After going a whole season without getting so much as 5 fouls, last night Steph Curry got 6 fouls for the first time and he was not too thr...

Charles Barkley Defends Draymond Green Hitting LeBron in the Balls: He Had a “Moral Obligation”

As we know, Warriors forward Draymond Green was suspended for Monday night’s Game 5 of the NBA playoffs after racking up 4 flagrant foul points in the post-season. His last point came on Friday when, late in the fourth quarter, Green elbowed Cavs star LeBron James in the groin after he threw Green to the ground and stepped over him. In basketball, the stepover is one of the most disrespectful acts a player can do to another. Who could forget Allen Iverson’s famous step over on now Cavalier’s coa...

Allen Iverson Is Turning 41 This Week (41!) And More Reasons I’m Starting To Feel Very Old

While watching the Cleveland Cavaliers play the Golden State Warriors during the NBA Finals, it’s been hard for me to look at Tyronn Lue and take him seriously. Not because his team has been getting mollywhopped by Golden State. No, it’s because he will always be the guy Allen Iverson stepped over in the 2001 NBA Finals after shaking him up and hitting a jumper from the corner, a move that is ingrained in the minds of even the most casual NBA fan. Y’all, this was 15 years ago. What? Another nota...
