Tough Western Conference schedule keeps Clippers — and opponents — focused

PLAYA VISTA — Not all conferences are created equal: When Detroit — one of those “East Coast teams,” as Coach Doc Rivers calls them — beat his Clippers on Saturday, it was just the Pistons’ second victory in nine games, which improved their record to 18-23 and left them just a half-game out of playoff position. That same record in the Western Conference would be good for 14th. Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily. Subscribe here. With the...

Luke Walton says Lakers failing to execute on defense

EL SEGUNDO — Following the Lakers’ 113-95 loss to the Jazz on Friday night, center JaVale McGee expressed frustration with Los Angeles’ failure to adjust on defense to Utah’s pick-and-roll attack.

I feel like they were getting too deep,” McGee said Friday. “Maybe we should have changed our coverage from a...

Ben Simmons on last season’s Rookie of the Year win: “It wasn’t a f—— race”

Last season’s Rookie of the Year race really became about two men: Philadelphia’s Ben Simmons and Utah’s Donovan Mitchell. Voters overwhelmingly chose Simmons (90 first place votes to Mitchell’s 11). Utah fans — who feed off the perceived lack of respect for their franchise — have not let that go, they booed Simmons when he and the Sixers came to Salt Lake City Thursday night.

Q: Dear 100 Hour Board,The Utah Jazz has been mediocre for most of my childhood and now adulthood. What should they do to become a powerhouse team again?-My Name Here A: Dear you, They need a point guard that can also stretch the floor. Ricky Rubio is a solid starting point guard, but he isn't going to help the Jazz become a "powerhouse". It would also be helpful to have a big man that can shoot a good clip and defend quicker forwards or be able to switch onto guards. I think Donovan Mitchell ...

LeBron James prepares for his last game against close friend Dwyane Wade as Lakers take on Heat

In the moments after his highest-scoring game of the season last month, LeBron James couldn’t help but feel a little bit robbed. It seemed wrong: He had scored 51 points, and he was standing in the building where he and one of his best friends had won a pair of championships together. But Dwyane Wade hadn’t been able to play. Wade had a good excuse: He was attending to his family after he and his wife Gabrielle Union had welcomed their first child. But James felt that his former Heat, Cavaliers ...
