Lakers ready to take Nikola Jokic, Denver Nuggets seriously in Western Conference Finals

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — At this point, the Denver Nuggets aren’t going to catch anyone off guard. And they don’t expect to. After watching film of the Lakers on Thursday afternoon, Nikola Jokic — one of the engines of Denver’s pair of historic 3-1 comebacks — came away with the impression that the top-seeded Lakers are just as serious and driven as his Nuggets have been in the last month. “I think they’re really focused,” Jokic said. “You can just see how they’re playing. Even the Portland seri...

How LeBron James has helped Anthony Davis shoulder the Lakers’ pressure to win

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — In the middle of the Lakers’ biggest win so far this postseason, Anthony Davis was struggling. It was hard to tell from the 6-foot-10 forward’s body language that his team was blowing out the Houston Rockets in Game 5. He hung his head. He slumped his shoulders. As he shuffled to the bench during a timeout in the third quarter, he brushed past several open palms of his teammates, who looked at him with concern. Davis was in the midst of what would be a 4-for-9 night from...

Rams, receiver Robert Woods close to ‘elite’ contract extension

THOUSAND OAKS — Robert Woods said he was happy to see fellow wide receiver Cooper Kupp sign a rich contract extension with the Rams last week. But there was a catch. It made Woods, the Rams’ most underpaid player, even more eager to work out a new deal of his own. Thursday, the player and the team sounded close to getting that done. Woods, the former Serra High (Gardena) and USC star, said he hopes to sign an extension as early as Friday, or at least before the Rams (1-0) play their second game ...

Jared Walsh rises as bright spot in Angels’ lefty woes

ANAHEIM – The Angels’ place in the standings allows for two interpretations. At 21-30, they would be wise to take advantage of the season’s final nine games with an eye toward next year. Thanks to an expanded 16-team playoff field, the Angels are also mathematically alive for a postseason berth. There’s still something to play for in 2020. Manager Joe Maddon was able to serve both masters Thursday. Rookie Jared Walsh got his sixth consecutive start at first base, batting second, with a left-hand...
