Clippers plan to be fit for first-round rematch with Mavericks

After the Clippers lost Game 7 of the Western Conference semifinals to Denver last September, Doc Rivers bemoaned the fact that this squad wasn’t in top shape at its most important moment of the season. “I thought conditioning, we kept having to take guys out because they were tired,” the Clippers’ former coach said. “We’re in the playoffs. And you had to do it, guys were asking to come out, so you had to do it, but that’s not typical for a Game 7. … I thought it hurt our rotations at times.” Th...

Whicker: Fears of a Laker revival in the NBA playoffs are justified

So much for readjustment, timing, chemistry and all the other entries from the Coach’s Thesaurus. It’s as simple as it ever was. If you’re playing with LeBron James and he gets a rebound, run downcourt like an escaping prisoner. If he gets double-teamed, sprint to the vacated area. Or, if it’s the end of the game, go to the corner and make sure your trigger-finger is engaged. The ball, and your chance for a hero shot, is coming. The Lakers’ muscles have retained all those memories. Remembering h...

Clippers play it safe with heavy rest in regular-season finale

Ahead of their regular-season finale Sunday in Oklahoma City, the Clippers’ injury report Saturday was relatively spare: Only Amir Coffey was listed as out (health and safety protocols) and DeMarcus Cousins (left foot soreness) and Terance Mann (personal reasons) were considered questionable. That outlook changed drastically closer to tip-off. Tyronn Lue announced before Sunday’s game that the Clippers would play without stars Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, as well as Marcus Marcus Sr., Nicolas ...

Clippers’ playoff seeding unknown entering regular-season finale

And what crafty chess-game-within-the-game moves might Sunday yield? On Friday, there was a notable byproduct of making certain that just about all of the Clippers’ key players would avoid possible injury in their surprising 122-115 loss to the 17-54 Houston Rockets: There can be no first-round meeting between the Clippers and Lakers in the Western Conference playoffs. Now if the Clippers happen to find a way to lose their final game of the regular season – on Sunday they face Oklahoma City, whi...

Rams to open season with Bears and fans at SoFi Stadium

For more than a year, Rams fans have wondered when they’ll finally be able to attend games at the team’s new home in Inglewood. The wondering, if not the wait, is over. The Rams will host the Chargers in a preseason opener between SoFi Stadium’s co-tenants in August, and will face the Chicago Bears in a Sunday night game at SoFi in their regular-season opener Sept. 12. Customers could fill most of the 70,240 seats for those games, COVID-19 conditions permitting. When the NFL announced its 2021 s...

LeBron James, Anthony Davis won’t play in Lakers’ regular-season home finale tonight

Amid the rumblings and reports that he’d make a return to the Lakers’ lineup during the last homestand of the regular season, LeBron James finally weighed in himself: He won’t play Wednesday night against the Houston Rockets, on the night the Lakers are set to unveil their 2020 championship banner. It is undoubtedly a weighty decision for the 36-year-old, four-time league MVP who has missed more than a third of the Lakers’ games this season, and he let that show in a tweet just a few hours prior...

Balanced Clippers never trail in rout of Raptors

The Clippers’ job was to do their job Tuesday in Tampa, Florida, where the host Raptors were enlisted as sparring partners for Coach Tyronn Lue’s team as it continues to ramp up for the postseason. Even with only four regular-season games remaining, and even against an overwhelmed opponent, Lue wanted – and got – an honest effort from his squad. With retired Hall of Fame broadcaster Ralph Lawler among the limited-capacity crowd at Amalie Arena to watch, the Clippers delivered, notching a wire-to...

Kings ready to wrap up season in Colorado, look forward to breakthroughs

And then there were two. Only a pair of games remain in the Kings’ season, both against the Colorado Avalanche in once-again-snowy Denver this Wednesday and Thursday. Earlier this season, the Kings were snowed in after a visit to Colorado and had to have a home game against St. Louis rescheduled for Monday, when they lost 2-1 in overtime. Since a stretch that saw them drop four out of five games and eight out of 11 overall, the Kings have played .500 hockey with a 4-4-1 record in their last nine...

Colorado police hunt for motive in deadly party shooting

By Thomas Piepert, James Anderson and Colleen Slevin | Associated Press COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A shooting at a birthday party inside a trailer park home in Colorado Springs that killed six people before the gunman took his own life stunned a state weary of gun violence just weeks after another Colorado mass shooting killed 10 people. Police on Monday were investigating what led the gunman, who they said was the boyfriend of one of the victims, to walk into the crowded party early Sunday and o...

LeBron James participates in Lakers’ practice, could return against Knicks

It took Anthony Davis almost three weeks to get back to game speed after missing 30 games with an injury. After his best game so far, a domineering performance in a victory over the Phoenix Suns on Sunday night, he was asked: Do you think LeBron James can get in rhythm in time for the postseason, just a week out? Davis was vague in his response, but the sentiment was unmistakable. “What I seen from LeBron today,” said Davis, pausing to nod his head, “he’ll be fine. Trust me. He’ll be fine.” At t...

Tyronn Lue, Clippers locking in their playoff rotation

The Clippers have just 11 rotations of the Earth — and, in that time, just four regular-season games — left to prepare their lineup rotations before embarking on what they hope will be a historic, redemptive journey when the playoffs start May 22. Almost on cue, Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are healthy enough to take on more minutes of action, available for staggered shifts that should equip the Clippers with a superstar on the court most if not all of the time. On Sunday against the Knicks, Ge...

Lakers may be cautious with LeBron James’ return with playoff fate nearly decided

LeBron James returned to Staples Center on Sunday night, just not dressed in the way Lakers fans would want. The 36-year-old came to the bench moments after tip-off, clad in all black except for his neon green sneakers — the first time James has sat courtside since sitting out again to recover his troublesome right ankle. It perhaps marked progress: The Lakers said James was not present at the last three games due to an excused absence to rest the injury. But all the same, coach Frank Vogel fore...

Whicker: Lakers’ future, postseason and beyond, in peril

This is what can happen when you place all your eggs in two baskets. What happened last year can happen again, too. The Lakers have detoured themselves into the possibility of a play-in game or two, in order to win another NBA championship. The play-in route is not insurmountable. UCLA went through it a couple of months ago and still got to the Final Four. But it is surely dangerous. The Lakers might have to play Golden State and Stephen Curry, the league’s deadliest variant. A loss there, and t...

Lakers, with play-in likely, pitted against NBA history

A seventh-seeded team has never, ever won an NBA championship. In one way, that reads like an invitation to the Lakers, and why shouldn’t it in this season of the unprecedented? There’s never been a year like this one, that has seen the NBA stack seasons so closely together, seen players bungee in and out of lineups, and seen the standings all out of whack in both conferences from what many observers would rank as their title favorites. No one epitomizes all these disconnected threads like the L...

Gray Stays Perfect At Home, Rockies Beat Giants, 6-5

DENVER (AP) — Jon Gray tossed six strong innings and helped himself with an RBI single, and the Colorado Rockies held off the San Francisco Giants for a 6-5 win Wednesday. Gray (4-2) allowed two runs and four hits. The right-hander also struck out eight and walked two while improving to 4-0 in five home starts. Daniel Bard worked a shaky ninth for his third save in five opportunities. The Giants scored an unearned run on catcher Dom Nuñez’s throwing error, but Darin Ruf bounced to shortstop with...

Alexander: Could Lakers, Clippers meet in first round of playoffs?

Remember the good old days, when we all assumed that the road to the NBA Finals was destined to run through Staples Center? Now, 14 months later, we might be looking at a first-round collision between the Lakers and Clippers. And that’s the best-case scenario. It would be a fair fight in all likelihood. The teams play again Thursday night with the Clippers as the home team and both in similar stages of adjustment, trying to capture (or recapture) chemistry on the fly with less than two weeks lef...

Alex Caruso tackles bigger workload as Lakers adapt with playmakers out

Alex Caruso’s three mistakes came in rapid succession, a span of three minutes in the third quarter of the Lakers’ victory over the Denver Nuggets on Monday. In the timeout after his third turnover – trying to force the ball inside to Andre Drummond while Kyle Kuzma waited with open hands in the left corner – Anthony Davis got on him to take care of the ball, and assistant coach Phil Handy told him to be more aggressive when looking to score. And as he’s done for the last couple of seasons as a ...

How 4 New Jersey pools turned into a startup that just raised $10M

As the oldest of 12 children, Bunim Laskin spent much of his teen years looking for ways to help keep his siblings entertained. Noticing that a neighbor’s pool was often empty, Laskin reached out to ask if his family could use her pool. To make it worth her while, he suggested that they could help cover her expenses for maintaining the pool. Soon after, five other families had made the same arrangement with her and the pool owner had six families covering 25% of her expenses. This meant that ...

Belt Slam In 10-run 1st Lifts Giants Over Rockies In Opener

DENVER (AP) — Brandon Belt hit a go-ahead single and a grand slam in a 10-run first inning that propelled the San Francisco Giants over the Colorado Rockies 12-4 Tuesday in a doubleheader opener. Belt connected for his home run on the sixth pitch after Jhoulys Chacín relieved starter German Márquez, a 452-foot drive for his third career slam. Posey went deep four pitches later. Márquez (1-3) allowed eight runs and six hits in two-third of an inning, an outing that raised his ERA from 4.13 to 6.2...

Ring in hand, JaVale McGee welcomes Nuggets-Lakers playoff rematch

LOS ANGELES — The polite applause and the occasional piercing shout he heard at Staples Center on Monday night wasn’t quite all that JaVale McGee wanted. He’s won titles before, and he’s been in parades, and he’s partied with teammates and friends and celebrated like the world was ending – back before the world did actually end. The Lakers’ title in 2020 barely had any of the gilding that makes winning one seem so sweet: “I feel like I’ve been deprived of all the good (expletive) that you get wh...

Whicker: Lakers play with the effort the rest of season will demand

At last, they played as if they recognized the gravity of the situation. And, at least, they stopped falling. The Lakers, in fact, reached up and regained sole possession of fifth place in the Western Conference standings on Monday night. If you’re wondering why that is so strut-worthy, you haven’t been around lately. The purple-and-gold welcome mat that was defenseless against Sacramento and Toronto came to life and played like wounded underdogs Monday night, which is not their accustomed stanc...

Anthony Davis, Marc Gasol help lift Lakers past Nuggets for needed win

LOS ANGELES — The best wines are stored away, left to become fermented and complex, and dusted off at just the right time. Perhaps there was something to that for Marc Gasol and Wesley Matthews on Monday night, playing the most minutes they’ve seen in weeks, but surely they’d like a little more time off the shelf. The veterans helped galvanize a fourth-quarter run that turned a challenging on-paper matchup against the MVP favorite and his Denver Nuggets into a rousing success for the Lakers. Wit...

Tyronn Lue: Clippers’ many contributors made playoffs possible

After they missed three cracks at it themselves and got no help from the Portland Trail Blazers, who needed to lose just once to ensure it – finally, it was the Lakers’ loss on Sunday night that clinched the Clippers’ seemingly inevitable if previously unofficial 2021 playoff berth. “It means a lot,” said Tyronn Lue, whose previous three forays into the postseason as an NBA coach wound up with his Cleveland Cavaliers reaching the NBA Finals, and winning the title once. Reaching the postseason st...

Lakers rule out LeBron James against Denver; Schröder may miss significant time

After quick two-night revue without good results, LeBron James’ comeback has hit a setback. And Dennis Schröder will miss his second straight game — and maybe a lot more. The Lakers officially ruled out both James and Schröder for Monday’s game against the Denver Nuggets, a tough playoff-caliber opponent who will stand in the way of the team ending its recent slide of six losses in its last seven games. James complained of pain and tightness in his right ankle, which he had rehabbed since March ...
