Clippers coach Ty Lue pretty much ruled that out Thursday when, asked to confirm Leonard’s status for Game 6 against the Utah Jazz, said: “He’s out.” Then again, as screwy a week as it’s been in the NBA, who knows what might happen? Planet Basketball has spun madly out of control the last couple of days. Two coaches fired, an...

Clippers’ Marcus Morris Sr. breaks out of shooting slump in Game 4 win

LOS ANGELES — As ever, Markieff Morris was helping his twin brother keep an eye on the prize.
