Danilo Gallinari expects better of himself, Clippers in Game 4 vs. Warriors

PLAYA VISTA — Doc Rivers isn’t worried about Danilo Gallinari. Neither is Danilo Gallinari. The only hint of concern came from the Golden State camp, where Warriors guard Klay Thompson told reporters at Staples Center that Gallinari is “capable of getting hot.” “You’ve just got to take away his space,” Thompson said. “He’s a great shooter and a great shooter wants to have some space, so we try to close that gap between him.” Gallinari went 2 for 13 from the field, 0 for 8 from 3-point range, and...

NBA rescinds technical fouls on Kevin Durant, JaMychal Green

LOS ANGELES — Kevin Durant worried that people might think the Clippers were “in my head,” but a technical issued in the second half of the Warriors’ Game 3 blowout had more practical concerns. The NBA eased the pressure on the defending champions Friday morning, rescinding the double technical fouls on Durant and Clippers forward JaMychal Green. The two were called less than four minutes into the the third quarter, as they jawed up the court. Both players immediately protested the call as it wa...

Whicker: Warriors’ defense looks familiar, and strong, with Andrew Bogut

LOS ANGELES — Which two quarters don’t go with the other 10? Take Game 1 and Game 3 and the first half of Game 2, and Golden State is outscoring the Clippers by 67 points. Only the second half of Monday’s Game 2, a trick of light and shadows, has saved this first-round series from the brink of Cancun, and other NBA vacationlands. The Warriors seized a 31-point lead in Game’2, embossing themselves in the embarrassment section of the playoff record books. They got to a 31-point lead in the third q...

Gardening: California native gardens offer surprising results with little water

This spring’s flowers – there are just so many of them — cannot be compared to those of any spring in recent memory. Perennial plants native to dry climates – and most of those in our gardens come from Mediterranean lands and the arid parts of South Africa and Australia, too — are especially prone to flowering more after heavy rains. With their roots luxuriating in moist earth, dry climate plants “know” the soil will stay wet long enough for them to continue to absorb water through their roots a...
