Max Homa brings it all back home, wins at Riviera

After he hiccuped his first chance to win his favorite golf tournament in the world on his favorite golf course in the world, Max Homa put one foot in front of the other. He walked from the 18th green to the 10th tee.

Now he was in a playoff with Tony Finau, who had just shot seven-under-par 64 at Ri...

Newsom touts new Southern California vaccine pop-ups as counties transition to Blue Shield network

Gov. Gavin Newsom visited two federally funded pop-up coronavirus vaccination sites in Southern California on Sunday, Feb. 21, part of a statewide tour of such spots aimed at immunizing the state’s hardest-hit communities.

Clippers put Luke Kennard on standby

LOS ANGELES — Before he’d even played an official minute in a Clippers uniform, the team signed fourth-year guard Luke Kennard to a four-year, $64 million contract extension on Dec. 21 (of which $56 million is guaranteed and another $8 million is incentivized). By mid-February, Kennard found himself having a conversation with Clippers Coach Tyronn Lue about platooning with Terance Mann, the multi-positional second-year player. “It can go back and forth,” Lue said Sunday, via Zoom video conferenc...

As defenses close off paint, Lakers look for shooting woes to end

There’s a curious trend among Lakers opponents in the last two weeks: On defense, they’ve had trouble staying out of the paint. In five of the last seven games, opposing defenses have been penalized for 3-second violations, perhaps one of the least-called offenses in the NBA rule book relative to how often it occurs. But it illustrates how teams are starting to see the Lakers: as threats in the paint, but not from outside. Loading up the interior is an effective strategy as the Lakers have lost ...
