Clippers’ Paul George sidelined Tuesday after tweaking ankle

A game after carrying the Clippers to victory in Phoenix, star wing Paul George was out of the lineup Tuesday against the Spurs. “He kinda tweaked his ankle a little bit last game,” Lue said during his pregame availability, at which point George was considered questionable. “The sports science team is doing a good job of taking a look at him and it is all about how PG feels. He is going to be the one that gauges it and see how he feels and they are going to make a decision together. Really out o...

Alexander: Eric Bieniemy should be Chargers’ choice for coach

Eric Bieniemy is ready – way past ready, in fact – to be a head coach. Make the call, Chargers. Do it now. The firing of Anthony Lynn as head coach on Monday seemed preordained almost from the moment that the New England Patriots, with their own problems, pantsed the Chargers in early December to drop them to 3-9. Four consecutive season-ending wins against three equally forlorn teams (sorry, Raider fans) and a Kansas City team that had nothing to play for and rested its stars couldn’t obscure t...
