Lakers keep their guard up, taking upset-minded Nuggets with caution

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — On the day the All-NBA teams were released, it was striking how few are left in the bubble. Likely MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo and former MVP James Harden were knocked out in the second round; fellow first-teamer Luka Doncic was gone in the first. Second-team point guards Damian Lillard and Chris Paul couldn’t get first-round wins; Pascal Siakam’s title defense fell short; as did Kawhi Leonard’s quest for a second straight. On the All-NBA first team, the elite of the elite...

USC, UCLA work together to get clarity on lifting of restrictions in L.A. County

An unprecedented situation called for an unusual maneuver. The athletic directors at USC and UCLA joined forces and held a joint Zoom call with Los Angeles County health officials Wednesday evening to clear a path for the football teams to begin practicing, according to sources familiar with the discussions. And it worked. “It was encouraging,” one source said. So encouraging that the teams are preparing to conduct full-squad practices once Pac-12 presidents approve that step, a move that could ...

State restrictions lifted for Pac-12 football teams in California, Oregon: The path back just got easier

Pac-12 football took a major step toward returning to play Wednesday as the governors of Oregon and California lifted the state restrictions preventing half the conference from conducting normal practices. If all goes well, the conference could restart its football season in late October or early November, bringing it into general alignment with the Big Ten, ACC, SEC and Big 12 during the season’s finishing stretch. The next step for the Pac-12 teams in California and Oregon — and it’s believed ...

Alexander: Dodgers clinch a playoff berth, but hold the champagne

Somehow the San Diego Padres didn’t seem quite as chirpy Tuesday night and Wednesday afternoon. This was their coming out party, their measuring stick, their opportunity to demonstrate that they not only could play with the big, bad Dodgers but beat them. There may have been a ballpark full of empty seats, representing the limitations of Pandemic Baseball, but the young Padres made plenty of their own noise in the dugout Monday night in a 7-2 win, their youthful exuberance coming through (and an...

Vietnamese American felon facing deportation gets backing from activists, elected leaders

Tin Nguyen arrived from Vietnam as a boy, in 1979, with hope for a better future in a new country. But his refugee story took a bad turn. As the only Vietnamese kid in his grade school classes, he was bullied. As a teen, he joined gangs and, as an adult, he committed crimes. Nguyen ended up doing 20 years for murder and robbery. But Nguyen turned his life around in prison. And, last year, after his sentence was commuted, he was given a chance at freedom. That’s when he was picked up for deportat...

Rams’ Jared Goff, Eagles’ Carson Wentz play out ‘friendly rivalry’ Sunday

THOUSAND OAKS — Jared Goff is trying to bounce back from a rough season. Carson Wentz is trying to bounce back from a bruiser of a season-opening game. There’s always something to link Goff and Wentz, the Rams and Eagles quarterbacks who were picked No. 1 and No. 2 in the 2016 NFL draft. This week, the one-time rookie stars seem to share an old pro’s instinct for playing down personal rivalries. “I’ve got a lot of respect for Carson,” Goff said four days before the Rams (1-0) and Eagles (0-1) pl...

Get a flu shot, Garcetti urges Angelenos amid coronavirus pandemic

Mayor Eric Garcetti urged all Los Angeles residents on Wednesday, Sept. 16, to get a flu shot before the typical season hits this fall to avoid possibly overwhelming hospitals with cases of influenza and COVID-19. “I need you to do one more thing that you add to that list to protect yourselves and your family and your loved ones,” Garcetti said. “Every Angeleno has a critical role to play in preventing a worst-case scenario. Doctors are already talking about (the flu) … saying this could be the ...

Angels top prospect Jo Adell reflects on difficult learning curve as a rookie

ANAHEIM — Jo Adell’s rookie season with the Angels — or as much of a season as has been possible in this pandemic-altered world — has not left him feeling too distraught. “This game is tough and you’re gonna have lumps and you know I knew I was gonna have some things I had to learn and I was gonna have a couple learning curves,” Adell said. “I definitely had my share. But I’m not down about it. I’m not sad. I’m learning. I’m taking notes every day about different things that are new to me and tr...

Chiefs can relate to Chargers’ QB dilemma with Tyrod Taylor, Justin Herbert

COSTA MESA — Chargers quarterback Tyrod Taylor will get opportunities to correct the mistakes he had last week against the Cincinnati Bengals during his first start in nearly two years. Taylor missed throws, struggled to get the offense in rhythm and failed to convert two fourth-and-short plays in the second quarter with him keeping the ball. “Convert them,” Taylor jokingly said Wednesday when asked what he could have done better on the two plays. “Just execute better and it starts with me.

KCRW-FM radio station eliminates 28 jobs including several on-air personalities

The influential Santa Monica-based public radio station KCRW-FM 89.9 announced the elimination of 28 jobs this week, a move the station attributed to the toll the coronavirus pandemic has taken on the economy. “The past six months have been a test for all of us,” KCRW president Jennifer Ferro said in a written statement. “Through it all, the KCRW team has worked tirelessly to deliver on our mission to inspire our listeners – across Southern California and across the globe – with the content we p...

Hoornstra: ‘What even are positions anyway?’ The answer is complicated

The Dodgers and Padres played a stirring three-game series this week. First place in the National League West hung in the balance. On Tuesday, Fernando Tatís Jr. hit a screaming line drive up the middle to begin the sixth inning at Petco Park. Rather than giving the Padres a runner on base, Tatís gave Dodgers second baseman Chris Taylor a sheepish grin. Taylor was positioned perfectly to catch the ball on the fly. It was just another moment at the vanguard of a league-wide trend the Dodgers are ...

Dwight Howard brings energy to Lakers’ bench, while trying to grind out the bubble time

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. >> On a recent evening as the clouds had lifted over the lake in the center of the Coronado Springs Resort, Dwight Howard went biking on an off-night. Behind him trailed his 6-year-old son, David, riding with the help of training wheels. It was a temperate evening, and the water reflected a brilliant Florida sunset. But the scene belied the difficulty of Howard’s situation, partly because the father and son were riding in a loop. While Howard has been an energetic presence...
