NBA players, owners agree to Dec. 22 start for 72-game regular season

The NBA season will be back in time for Christmas. The NBA board of governors and the National Basketball Players Association have each agreed to play a reduced 72-game season starting on Dec. 22, an unprecedented short turnaround that the league hopes will help it recoup a steep dive in revenue and sync back with its traditional calendar schedule.

Southern Californians face rainy weekend, snow in some spots

Chino tied for 1st place as the hottest spot in the U.S. on Thursday (along with near Ramona, AZ) the National Weather Service said, but the thermostat is about to take a deep dive.

And those heading to the mountains ...

At their core, every big vote is simply a bunch of people telling the world how they feel about that ballot’s particular batch of politicians and ideas. With that in mind, here’s a quick look at five things Southern California voters said in the election that ended Tuesday, Nov. 3. 1. “We like democracy!” ...

Joshua Kelley in Chargers’ backfield plans for Week 9 vs. Raiders

COSTA MESA — Chargers coach Anthony Lynn knows the mental burden running backs carry after a string of fumbles. They begin to overthink on the field and aren’t as decisive when running between tackles. But every running back regains confidence at their own pace. Lynn anticipated that with rookie running back Joshua Kelley after he fumbled in back-to-back games against the Carolina Panthers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
