Lakers’ Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has been steady shooting hand

Last week, LeBron James and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope each laid out their cases as the best 3-point shooter on the Lakers. Then on Thursday night, they had a contest. Caldwell-Pope, the top shooter by percentage and volume for the season, came out on top, besting James’ six 3-pointers with seven of his own, with each man attempting 10 apiece. Perhaps callously used to seeing the Lakers (12-4) drain the long ball this season, Alex Caruso registered surprise when a reporter told him the final tally...

LeBron James, Lakers outlast Bucks to begin long trip

After the last MVP vote, when LeBron James finished a distant runner-up to Giannis Antetokounmpo, he told the world the tallying, “pissed me off.” In the first head-to-head matchup with the Greek Freak, James seemed motivated to leave no doubt who the better player is. On a night when he scored a season-high 34 points, James capped it in dramatic fashion: With a minute left, James hit a deep 3-pointer over Brook Lopez that could have adequately served as a dagger – if not for the dunk he threw d...

Alexander: Chris Kirk’s toughest battle came off the golf course

When Chris Kirk finished in a tie for second last week at the Sony Open in Honolulu, it enabled him to regain his PGA Tour card, which in itself was a triumph. Quietly, in the course of a final round 65 at Waialae, he stared down the internal demons that had helped force him off the tour for nearly seven months in 2019. He had taken leave to deal with alcohol abuse and depression, and a related issue was the way he had handled pressure, which in a professional golfer’s case is almost a given if ...
