USC coaches want QB JT Daniels to make the easier throws

LOS ANGELES — In USC’s ongoing, season-long development of true freshman quarterback JT Daniels, the latest lesson involved simplifying. “We’ve really made an emphasis over the last couple weeks of him taking the easy throws and not trying to force balls downfield and not always going for the home run,” said Bryan Ellis, the Trojans’ quarterbacks coach.

Rams’ Marcus Peters, who once ‘expected’ a win over Kansas City Chiefs, now subdued about playing his former team

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – It’s time for Marcus Peters to take on “Big Red” and fulfill his prophecy of turnovers and a win. It’s rarely boring with Peters, and for several reasons, this is a week to watch him. The Kansas City Chiefs traded Peters to the Rams in February and, within moments, all eyes turned to the schedule and the matchup of those two teams, which will take place Monday at the Coliseum. Peters, the Rams’ boom-or-bust, sometimes-combustible No. 1 cornerback, doesn’t seem to be out...

Fellow Clippers appreciate preternaturally talented rookie Shai Gilgeous-Alexander

LOS ANGELES — At this time last year, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander was a college freshman coming off the bench for Kentucky.

Gilgeous-Alexander was, back then, a dreadlock-rocking 19-year-old averaging 7.7 points, 3.3 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 3.0 steals in 28 minutes per game, but he wasn’t a headliner yet fo...
