Lakers’ Dennis Schröder glad to be back, but frustrated by NBA-mandated quarantine

The stage was set. All that was left for Dennis Schröder was to get out of the car. This was Feb. 18, the night of a megawatt matchup with the Brooklyn Nets that, despite the notable absences of All-Stars Kevin Durant and Anthony Davis, still promised to showcase two contenders at Staples Center. In another part of the building, Lakers coach Frank Vogel was telling the media how much he was looking forward to seeing how Schröder would fare against All-Star guard Kyrie Irving. But Schröder was in...

Clippers’ Paul George an All-Star for seventh time

LOS ANGELES — Paul George’s All-Star sheen gets a seventh coat this season. The NBA announced Tuesday that the Palmdale native was among the Western Conference players selected as a reserve for the NBA All-Star Game on March 7 at State Farm Arena in Atlanta. It’s a much-deserved honor, Clippers coach Tyronn Lue said before Tuesday’s game against the Washington Wizards at Staples Center. “In my eyes, he’s one of the top two-way players in our league.

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...

Clippers host Brooklyn Nets rematch at full strength

The Clippers might have been fully staffed for Friday’s big game against Utah – their full-bodied effort helped snap the Jazz’s nine-game winning streak – but still, they weren’t fully themselves, they said. They should, however, be a step closer when the next superb, surging team meets them Sunday at Staples Center; the Brooklyn Nets have won five consecutive games, a span in which their plus-10.3 net rating is second to only Utah’s plus-10.7. After the Nets and Clippers put on a tantalizing sh...

LeBron James still leans on Anthony Davis. It’s not to make a shot. Or get the block if a driver gets behind him. Or grab a rebound. But for the next four weeks or so, James will still be talking with his teammate to see what he sees from the bench. “We’re talking about the game, that possession, that half, that quarter: What ...

Lakers’ Dennis Schröder misses start vs. Nets due to COVID-19 protocols

LOS ANGELES — While Frank Vogel is often guarded about revealing his game plan prior to tip-off, there was one thing the Lakers coach singled out that he wanted to see in the ensuing clash with the Brooklyn Nets. “Looking forward to seeing the Dennis Schröder-Kyrie Irving matchup,” he said. “I think that’s one that Dennis gives us a different dynamic this year, and I’m looking forward to seeing that matchup.” A half-hour later, the Lakers were robbed of seeing that matchup when Schröder was decl...

Lakers face a Nets superteam that they helped usher in

The last time the Lakers saw James Harden, they drove him to quit. It was less than a month into the season when the defending NBA champions put together back-to-back blowouts of the Rockets in Houston, the second of which saw Harden simply give up in the middle of the game. The Lakers pressed their heels on the Rockets’ throats, with LeBron James memorably shooting a 3-pointer and turning around to crow at the Lakers bench before it went in. Afterward, Harden said in a memorable press conferenc...
