Clippers hope adjustments will improve outlook vs. Suns

PHOENIX — One “good, feel-out game” in the books, as Paul George called it, and this Western Conference finals between George’s Clippers and the Phoenix Suns is about as hard to gauge as it was before Sunday’s game, which Phoenix won, 120-114. The fall-behind-and-figure-it-out Clippers might have the second-seeded Suns exactly where they want them (or not), but it’s awfully hard to develop even a working hypothesis for what might happen next without knowing when (or if) All-Stars Kawhi Leonard a...

Suns’ Deandre Ayton welcomes Clippers’ small-ball challenge

PHOENIX — To its credit, Phoenix didn’t spend its week between games frittering away its advantage. While the Clippers labored against top-seeded Utah Jazz for six second-round games, the Suns spent their six days of downtime after sweeping Denver doing homework. So when the Clippers rolled out the small lineup Sunday that’s served them well so far this postseason, Phoenix were prepared. “I mean, that’s what we expected,” Suns star Devin Booker said after their 120-114 victory in Game 1 of the W...

Supreme Court unanimously sides with ex-athletes in NCAA compensation case

WASHINGTON — In a ruling that could help push changes in college athletics, the Supreme Court on Monday unanimously ruled that the NCAA can’t enforce certain rules limiting the education-related benefits — things like computers and graduate scholarships — that colleges offer athletes. The case doesn’t decide whether students can be paid salaries. Instead, the ruling will help determine whether schools decide to offer athletes tens of thousands of dollars in those benefits for things including tu...

Whicker: Clippers forced to take pop quiz in Phoenix, and questions got harder

Algebra 2 is tougher than Algebra 1. The steps at the top of the flight are more demanding than the ones at the bottom. Phoenix represents another degree of difficulty for the Clippers, even when they are playing without inadequate rehearsal, even when TV schedulers make them perform at lunch. This, of course, is the way it’s drawn up. On Sunday, the Suns scored 120 points without Chris Paul, the 36-year-old scoutmaster who was given credit for grabbing this dusty franchise by the lapels and bas...

Clippers’ Kawhi Leonard, Suns’ Chris Paul stay connected from afar

The injury report lists them as OUT, but they’re not forgotten. Not even for a fleeting moment. Kawhi Leonard and Chris Paul couldn’t compete in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals between Phoenix and the Clippers on Sunday afternoon. The stars were sidelined because of a sprained knee and COVID-19 health and safety protocols, respectfully, but the team’s stars contributed anyway. Clippers coach Tyronn Lue said Leonard has remained “very involved” despite being sidelined for the final two ga...

Clippers’ Tyronn Lue reflects on Black coaches’ success this season

PHOENIX — Clippers coach Tyronn Lue surveyed the NBA landscape late this season and shared a notable observation: Three of the final four coaches leading teams in the respective conference finals will be Black. It’s Lue and Phoenix’s Monty Williams in the Western Conference finals. And in the Eastern Conference, either Philadelphia’s Doc Rivers or Atlanta’s Nate McMillan was bound for the conference finals when Lue spoke before Game 1 in Phoenix on Sunday. “Three of the four coaches left standin...

Daddy’s Hangout 2021 Western Conference Finals Prediction

How exciting has the NBA playoffs been? We have now arrived at the Western Conference Finals. The Phoenix Suns will take on the Los Angeles Clippers for a spot in the NBA Finals. The Suns are still searching for their first NBA title. The Los Angeles Clippers have finally reached the conference finals in their 51 year history. The Clippers were one of my favorites to come out of the west this season. Unfortunately, the Phoenix Suns were not on that list despite being a top team all season. The...

Bucks edge Nets in OT in Game 7, withstand Kevin Durant’s 48

NEW YORK (AP) — A Game 7 thriller, the NBA’s first do-or-die game to go to overtime in 15 years, came down to a matter of inches. If Brooklyn star Kevin Durant was just slightly farther away — or if his foot was slightly smaller — he ends the highest-scoring Game 7 ever by an NBA player with a 3-pointer to win the series. “We got lucky his toe was on the line and they called it a 2,” Milwaukee’s Khris Middleton said. “But once he hits that shot, we’ve got to forget about it. There’s still ballga...

Mitch Chortkoff used to say it all the time, sometimes at the table in the Chick Hearn Press Room that currently bears his name. “Say what you want about Clippers fans,” Chortkoff said. “They’re the real basketball fans in this town.” Chortkoff covered pro basketball in Los Angeles from the days when the blue Lakers uniforms weren’t throwbacks. He also saw the game all the way down to its bones, and wrote it the same way, and would keep the reader loose by throwing in a groaner or two, like “The...

Clippers, Suns meet in Western Conference finals filled with unknowns

What a delectable narrative the NBA playoffs have delivered! In one corner of the 2020-21 Western Conference finals bout beginning Sunday: Chris Paul, who for six seasons played one of the leads in the Clippers’ ascension from laughingstock to competitive competency. In the other corner, those very Clippers. They’ve risen further since Paul’s departure, using his Lob City years as a launching pad for what they hope – with the additions of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George – will become sustainable c...

Whicker: To make a memory, Clippers dissolve a 2015 nightmare

What goes around comes around, even if it takes a six-year orbit, even if most of us thought there would be an NFL team and a four-year college and a Shake Shack on Mars before we would see the Clippers do what they did Friday night. They did not come off the floor to catch and stuff and mount the Utah Jazz in Game 6. They came from under the floor and through six feet of dirt. They trailed by 25 points in the third quarter. They won the second half, 81-48, got 39 points from a second-round draf...

Tyronn Lue calls on L.A. basketball fans to rally around Clippers

LOS ANGELES — It’s no secret that the Lakers have long been the dominant team in the consciousness of basketball fans in Los Angeles, with a dozen titles in the 61 years since moving from Minneapolis. But with the Clippers advancing to the Western Conference finals for the first time ever with a 131-119 Game 6 victory over the top-seeded Utah Jazz on Friday night, Clippers coach Tyronn Lue made his team’s case to hoop fans this postseason. “I know the Lakers are out and there’s a lot of Laker fa...

Clippers’ Terance Mann has breakout Game 6 effort that shows growth

LOS ANGELES — It wasn’t long ago that it looked like Clippers guard Terance Mann looked tentative and nervous in the postseason. Late in Game 5 of the team’s first-round playoff series against the Dallas Mavericks, the second-year guard passed up an open layup to a teammate for a 3-pointer that missed. It was the type of play that can happen when someone isn’t ready for the big stage. But at the time, teammate Paul George tapped Mann on the head and gave simple advice: “Next play. He was playing...

Clippers go forth again without Kawhi Leonard

LOS ANGELES — No news is … no news. Coach Tyronn Lue had nothing new to report about the status of Clippers star Kawhi Leonard before Game 6 on Friday, which the five-time All-Star missed because of a sprained knee he suffered while planting on a drive late in Game 4. “Yeah, he’s fine,” Lue said, before reiterating, as he had said Thursday, that Leonard wouldn’t play Friday. “That’s the only update I have for you.” Lue declined to say whether the Clippers have a sense yet about how long Leonard ...

Whicker: The 3-point shot is thriving in Utah, but it began in Anaheim

As the Utah Jazz approached Wednesday night’s Game 5 as if the 3-point line were the Berlin Wall, the friends and relatives of Les Selvage must have been smiling. The Jazz took 37 shots in the first half of what became . Thirty were launched from behind the 3-point line, which the American Basketball Association brought us in 1967. Selvage represents a rough thru-line between those days and Wednesday. He attempted 5.9 3-point shots per game for the Anaheim Amigos, who moved to Los Angeles the n...

By Travis Caldwell | CNN The country continued this week on a path to reopening from the Covid-19 pandemic, with major population centers such as New York and California pulling back on restrictions following increased vaccinations and lowered infections. Yet with overall vaccination rates in the US slowing this month when compared to highs in April, health officials are raising awareness about the uneven distribution of vaccines in different parts of the country. “I’m very unconcerned for peop...
