49ers Fall 43-17 To Dolphins In ‘Embarrassing’ Fashion

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Jimmy Garoppolo dropped back to pass and was unable to push off his injured right ankle. The ball sailed high for his second interception in the closing minutes of the first half and was just one of many forgettable plays for the San Francisco 49ers. The offensive line struggled in protection and allowed five sacks. The banged-up defense that began the day with a practice squad player at cornerback was gashed for 350 yards by Ryan Fitzpatrick. Garoppolo played his wors...

Whicker: Forget the asterisks in a Lakers title run that had its own punctuation

It began 11 days short of a year ago, when it was Opening Night, and the reconfigured Lakers lost to the reconfigured Clippers. Remember the assumptions that took hold. The Lakers were a couple of jigsaw pieces short. They had a new, fluid coaching staff, with Jason Kidd looming as a Plan B if Frank Vogel’s first months were shaky. They had two supreme players, but LeBron James was entering his 17th season and Anthony Davis’ connective tissue had failed him before. Kyle Kuzma would be challenged...

Kobe Bryant in Lakers’ hearts, on their minds after winning NBA title

Now it’s done. The torch has been passed again, handed from George Mikan to Jerry West and Wilt Chamberlain to Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal to Bryant and Pau Gasol and now to LeBron James and Anthony Davis. One must imagine Bryant proud, smiling and cheering. The Lakers won their record-tying 17 NBA championship with a commanding 106-93 victory Sunday over the Miami Heat in the decisive Game 6 of the Finals, a win that was 10 years in the making, thro...

Danny Green joins LeBron James, two others in exclusive club of champs

Wherever Danny Green goes, championships seem to follow. “Been very lucky,” he said Sunday after the Lakers clinched the 2020 NBA title by beating the Miami Heat 106-93 in Game 6 of the NBA Finals – a feat that qualified Green and LeBron James among just four players who have won titles with three franchises. The other two members of the club: Robert Horry and John Salley. James’ previous titles came in 2012 and 2013 with the Heat and in 2016 with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Green – an NCAA champio...

LAFC overcomes early injuries to defeat Seattle in Western Conference showdown

LOS ANGELES >> It isn’t often that a team has to use two substitutes within the first 13 minutes of a game, but Sunday, that’s the situation that LAFC found itself in. In the sixth minute, Mark-Anthony Kaye was subbed off with an ankle injury and seven minutes later, his replacement Andy Najar (hamstring) was taken off. “It doesn’t happen often,” LAFC coach Bob Bradley said of being forced to used two substitutes so early. LAFC’s fortune took a positive turn when in the 15th minute Danny Musovsk...

Taylor Hall Lands In Buffalo

from Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News, This was a major move for the Buffalo Sabres and first-year General Manager Kevyn Adams. No one in the hockey world had any inkling it was coming. The Sabres sent shockwaves through the league Sunday night, instantly transforming their head-scratching free agency period into a huge windfall by signing left winger Taylor Hall – the 2018 Hart Trophy winner with the New Jersey Devils – to a one-year, $8 million contract. Hall, who finished la...

Unofficial ballot drop boxes popping up throughout the state worry elections officials

In a photo posted to social media last week, a young man wearing a mask with Orange County congressional candidate Michelle Steel’s name on it is holding a mail ballot and giving a thumbs up next to a box about the size of a file cabinet labeled “Official ballot drop off box.” The post, from Jordan Tygh, a regional field director for the California Republican Party, encouraged people to message him for “convenient locations” to drop their own ballots. The problem is the drop box in the photo is ...

Lakers win 17th NBA title with dominant Game 6 effort

Now LeBron James will be hailed as Laker royalty. “What I’ve learned being a Laker,” James said last week, as he and his teammates closed in on the franchise’s 17th NBA title and his fourth, “is that the Laker faithful don’t give a damn what you’ve done before.” Forever more, those fans will be indebted to King James. And to A.D., to Playoff Rondo, AC Fresh and KCP … Together on Sunday, in their 95th day in the enclosed campus at Walt Disney World Resort, the Lakers put an exclamation point on t...

Alexander: The Lakers’ 17th title is for all those who have come before

This one was for Kobe, of course, and for Gianna. A season had been dedicated to them, and so too should be a championship. But the historical import of this, the 17th NBA title in Lakers’ franchise history, demands that it also be for many others who have contributed along the path to 17, those who succeeded and especially those who fell short. For those who haven’t yet figured out the significance of 17, here’s a hint: They darned sure have noticed in Boston, and wherever else Celtics fans res...

Is Dodgers’ deep, patient offense better equipped to succeed this October?

ARLINGTON, Texas — There are so many ways to measure effective offense in baseball. The two teams squaring off in the National League Championship Series beginning Monday – the Dodgers and Atlanta Braves – were good at all of them. The bottom line, scoring runs – they ranked 1-2 in baseball, just one run apart. Hitting home runs? Only two teams in baseball hit more than 95 this season – the Dodgers (118) and Braves (103). Not coincidentally, they tied for the best slugging percentage in baseball...

Fresh bodies, tired minds: a look inside MLB’s most fascinating October

When the Tampa Bay Rays and New York Yankees met in Game 5 of the American League Division Series on Friday, their pitchers did something historic. They threw fastballs at an average speed of 97.2 mph, the fastest in a single game since systematic pitch tracking began in 2008 – if not ever. As postseason games go, there are few anecdotal challengers. The Nolan Ryan-Dwight Gooden duel in Game 5 of the 1986 National League Championship Series might be the nearest. A Sandy Koufax-Jim Palmer matchup...

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott suffers ankle injury against Giants

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has sustained a gruesome injury to his right ankle in the third quarter against the New York Giants. Prescott was injured at the end of a 9-yard run when he was tackled by New York defensive back Logan Ryan. His right foot was bent at an awkward angle as Prescott grabbed at his leg in obvious pain. The lower right leg was placed in a cast before Prescott was loaded on a cart. He covered his face with a towel at times before pulling it away to show the emot...

Rams don’t ease up on Alex Smith in his ‘unbelievable’ comeback

The Rams welcomed Alex Smith back to the football field NFL-style Sunday. They hit him, over and over. The Washington quarterback, who nearly lost his right leg to a November 2018 fracture and ensuing medical complications, entered Sunday’s game with two minutes left in the first half after Josh Allen was injured. The first thought for Rams defenders? “We definitely were kind of licking our chops. We knew we didn’t have to run after anybody,” said defensive end Michael Brockers, who assumed Smit...
