Lakers race by Rockets as Anthony Davis, LeBron James overpower on offense

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — In the bubble, it’s taken the Lakers a few extra steps to get top speed. But once they’ve played their best, it’s been hard for anyone to catch them. Full speed was Sunday night, after LeBron James’ clinching bucket with 32 seconds left, a fadeaway jumper, Anthony Davis met him on the other end of the court — the two Lakers stars beamed as they low-fived, confident in their eventual 117-109 triumph over the Houston Rockets to even up the series in Game 2. Davis scored 34...

Lakers, Rockets rely on scout teams to plot out series adjustments

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — The Lakers-Rockets series might have four of the NBA’s players who are next to impossible to imitate. That doesn’t stop coaches from trying. Both the Lakers and Rockets have used scout teams to prepare their strategies for the series, using end-of-the-bench players to replicate All-Star counterparts. Houston coach Mike D’Antoni acknowledged, for example, that he used Chris Clemons (4.9 points, 0.9 rebounds, 0.8 assists) to replicate LeBron James. “They didn’t look quite ...

Sparks shut down Sky in fourth quarter to take win

The Sparks were down two starters. They had trailed by double-digits early in the first half. Toward the end of this compact WNBA season, exhaustion was clearly something the team was fighting through in the fourth quarter against the Chicago Sky on Sunday. But the Sparks powered through not with overwhelming offense, but through smothering defense. The Sparks held the Sky to 5 of 20 shooting in the fourth quarter, including five misses to end the game, to take an 86-80 win. Los Angeles (14-5) w...

Dodgers’ Joe Kelly sees MLB discipline decisions as ‘fishy’

LOS ANGELES — Joe Kelly is still a little sore. The Dodgers reliever has not pitched since August 8 due to inflammation in his pitching shoulder. That’s not it, though. That has cleared up and Kelly could return soon. But the Dodgers reliever was suspended for eight games after throwing at — but not hitting — two batters during the Dodgers’ July series in Houston and then prompting a benches-clearing confrontation with a pouty-lip pose directed at Astros shortstop Carlos Correa. The suspension w...

Billie Jean King, Original 9 mark 50 years of women’s pro tennis tour

NEW YORK (AP) — Serena Williams could send a thank-you note to Long Beach’s Billie Jean King and eight other players who signed $1 contracts to launch a new women’s pro tennis circuit 50 years ago. The bold move by King and her peers, known as the “Original 9,” led to the lucrative prize funds and multimillion-dollar endorsement deals enjoyed by top women today. They were tired of second-class treatment at tournaments. They’d been squeezed out of events by promoters and were paid substantially l...

Rams acquire a linebacker to try to ease the pain of injuries

Linebackers were a worry when the Rams went to training camp, and they were still a worry for different reasons as the team began the final week of preparation for the regular season. Late-August knee injuries to inside linebacker Travin Howard and rookie outside linebacker Terrell Lewis have robbed the Rams of depth at positions where they’d already lost star power in free agency. They acted Sunday to shore things up both inside and outside linebacker with one move, claiming Justin Hollins on w...
