Clippers get past Denver Nuggets, take 2-1 lead in Western Conference semifinal series

No need to reinvent the wheel, Clippers coach Doc Rivers insisted before the Clippers faced Denver in Game 3 of their Western Conference semifinal series. His talent-rich Clippers were going to keep doing what earned them the second seed for the first time in franchise history, but, Rivers said, “just need to do it better, harder, faster.” The Nuggets were waiting for it, Denver coach Michael Malone said. “We know what we’re in for tonight,” he said. “It’s gonna be a hell of a challenge, these g...

Giants Beat Diamondbacks, End Gallen’s Record Streak

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Kevin Gausman and three relievers combined on a three-hitter, and the San Francisco Giants ended pitcher Zac Gallen’s record-setting streak to begin his career, beating the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-2 on Monday night. Darin Ruf hit a two-run single in the sixth and Brandon Belt had a bases-loaded walk as the Giants won for the sixth time in eight games. Mike Yastrzemski added a pair of singles. Gallen had not allowed more than three earned runs in his first 23 career starts, a ...

Del Mar racing: Dr. Schivel provides trainer Luis Mendez with first career Grade I victory

Dr. Schivel gave trainer Luis Mendez the first Grade I victory of his career Monday, winning the $250,000 Del Mar Futurity on closing day under jockey Flavien Prat. So what does Mendez get as a reward? Dr. Schivel will now be transferred to Mark Glatt’s barn after the 2-year-old Violence colt was privately sold to the father-son team of Jed and Tim Cohen following his 5 3/4-length maiden victory on Aug. 8. Mendez remained the colt’s trainer for the Futurity. “I have good owners,” he said. “Thank...

Rams plan three-running-backs ‘rotation’ vs. Cowboys, Sean McVay says

Sometimes it says just as much when a coach doesn’t name a starter at a key position. Monday, with Week 1 upon him, Sean McVay stuck with the Rams’ long-discussed plan for a running-back-by-committee approach instead of anointing a No. 1 ballcarrier to start the season in Todd Gurley’s old role. McVay said he’s “optimistic” that Darrell Henderson, who missed two weeks of practice with a hamstring pull, will be ready along with Cam Akers and Malcolm Brown to face the Dallas Cowboys Sunday night a...

Chargers tab Sam Tevi as Tyrod Taylor’s blind-side protector

Quarterback wasn’t the only open competition that never took place in training camp. On Monday, Chargers coach Anthony Lynn unsurprisingly named Sam Tevi the starting left tackle for Sunday’s season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals. Tevi was competing with second-year lineman Trey Pipkins, but Tevi received nearly every first-team snap during open training-camp practices. “I thought he got better as camp went on,” Lynn said. “He’s moving to the left side. Sometimes that’s different for a gu...

Can the Dodgers’ bullpen be trusted this time?

LOS ANGELES — You want to believe. You really do. But you have believed before. Like in 2017 when Brandon Morrow and Kenley Jansen were shutting down the back end of games — until they weren’t. Or 2018 when Ryan Madson was supposed to be Jansen’s new sidekick and rotation overflow (Kenta Maeda, Julio Urias and Alex Wood) was going to make the bullpen solid. Or last fall when Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said he had the deepest bullpen he’d ever had in the postseason — then made decisions in Game...

Temperatures will be slightly cooler this week, but the wind will pick up, causing fire risk

After record-setting heat throughout Southern California over the weekend, Labor Day provided a slight reprieve, which should continue early this week, though temperatures will remain in the mid-to-high-90s in some areas — and the specter of Santa Ana winds picking up could worsen fire conditions. In Los Angeles County, the weather was tempered Monday, Sept. 7, by a marine layer and wildfire smoke from fires burning in the Angeles National Forest and San Bernardino Mountains, according to the Na...

How Los Angeles is preserving its housing crisis

You have to hand it to Los Angeles’ NIMBYs: they’re endlessly creative at finding new reasons to oppose more housing. Apartment buildings create traffic. They hurt property values. They attract “the wrong element”. They spread COVID-19. They will (gasp!) cast a shadow. Now, they’re using historic preservation as a gambit to block new housing. Los Angeles has robust historic preservation policies. The Historic-Cultural Monument program recognizes architecturally distinct or historically significa...

Expect the unexpected early in NFL season amid COVID-19

The fundamental factors that decide football games still apply: talent, strategy, preparation. But this year they’re joined by a new one: COVID-19. Although the NFL made it through training camps without the disease outbreaks some feared, the pandemic changed how teams prepared for the season. It prompted changes in some roster rules, anticipating the possibility of coronavirus infections. It could affect games, championships and careers even if the microscopic streaker is kept off the field. Wa...

L.A. County reports 25 coronavirus deaths, but hospitalizations fall

Los Angeles County reported 494 new cases of COVID-19 and 25 more deaths Monday, bringing the county’s totals to 248,821 cases and 6,030 fatalities. Officials with the county’s Department of Public Health said the relatively low number of new cases reflected both a delay in test and death reports usually seen on weekends and the closure of testing sites over the Labor Day holiday. The number of people hospitalized in the county continued its steady decline, dropping from 966 Sunday to 943. Count...

The Battle In The Eastern Conference Starts Tonight

from Chris Johnston of Sportsnet, When last the New York Islanders and Tampa Bay Lightning faced one another, Jean-Gabriel Pageau was still a member of the Ottawa Senators. And Blake Coleman and Barclay Goodrow had yet to be acquired to form two-thirds of Tampa’s matchup line. That Feb. 8 game should bear little resemblance to what we see in this Eastern Conference Final as a result. While the NHL has been finishing off the 2019-20 season since returning from its COVID-19 pause, w...
