Whicker: Clippers slow Jazz’s Donovan Mitchell enough in Game 3 win

Donovan Mitchell was no longer playing solo on the Bonneville Salt Flats. Paul George was no longer playing against his own shadows. Kawhi Leonard was no longer using the Oliver Twist approach, taking only what he was given. It leads to the type of Western Conference semifinal series that the Clippers were hoping to create, after they left the Utah beehive trailing, 0-2. A longer one. The first step was a smooth and ruthless 132-106 victory over the top-seeded Jazz in Game 3, the type of pattern...

Clippers’ stars deliver in Game 3, trimming Jazz’s series lead to 2-1

LOS ANGELES — There wasn’t a soul chanting “over-rated” at Paul George on Saturday – certainly not in the more-friendly confines of Staples Center, and not at the well-attended watch party at Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City, either. And no one will be asking why Kawhi Leonard hasn’t booted up Terminator Mode – because he cranked the dial in a big way during the second half. Lurking like the mythological snow wasset that inspired one of his New Balance sneaker designs, Leonard leaped out of the sn...

Leyla Seka and Letty Ledbetter of BVI: We’re going to increase the appallingly low number of blacks participating in venture capital

It’s a small world.  So when I had a recent LinkedIn Live convo with Leah-McGowan Hare of Salesforce and Bevy’s cofounder Derek Andersen on to talk about the company’s efforts to recruit black investors in their recent $40M round, Leah’s story about attending the Black Venture Institute’s (BVI) two-week venture education program really intrigued me.  So much so that when I checked out the BVI website I noticed that one of the cofounders was buddy of mine from her days at Salesforce – Leyla...

Alexander: Clippers’ task is not impossible, but it’s not easy

There are parallels, and there’s one important difference. The Clippers are down 2-0 in a series, again. They’re playing a team with a dynamic player who demands special attention, again. This time they’re coming home after losing two on the road, but those losses were to the team with the NBA’s best regular-season record. They do have a one-game winning streak at Staples Center, and the odds are it’s going to sound like a library compared to what they’ve faced in Salt Lake City this week, which...

Clippers, down 2-0 to the Utah Jazz, have issues on both ends

SALT LAKE CITY — The last time the Clippers fell behind 2-0 in a playoff series, back on May 25, they made it a point to express their unwavering confidence. Reggie Jackson wore a T-shirt adorned with a happy face to his virtual postgame news conference and signed off that night by saying: “No worries. Remember, no worries!” Clippers Coach Tyronn Lue also was unequivocally calm, shrugging off the Clippers’ first two losses at Staples Center: “I am not worried about it,” he said. “You gotta win f...

Rams receivers vie to catch Matthew Stafford’s eye

THOUSAND OAKS — It’s speed dating on a gridiron, “The Bachelor” in pads. The Rams’ pass receivers are competing for the attention of new quarterback Matthew Stafford, intent on making good first impressions during the team’s spring workouts. Second-year wide receiver Van Jefferson might think he has an edge, having known Stafford since Jefferson’s father Shawn was a Lions coach a decade ago. “I asked him, ‘Do you remember me then?’ He said, ‘Yeah, I remember you. You were running around in Detro...

‘Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard’ Review: Snarky, Slapdash, and Really Just Plain Annoying to Watch

The return of inexplicable sequels is but one part of the general “nature is healing” vibe of the 2021 summer movie season, and the awkwardly titled action comedy Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard fits the bill, unfortunately, quite well. A follow-up to the 2017 film The Hitman’s Bodyguard (even as it loses the word “The” for no good reason), this sequel offers more of the same while being poorly paced and substituting yelling and profanity in place of actual wit or humor. Though it’s still plenty glib...

UC Irvine’s Michael Frias shuts out Nevada in NCAA regional opener

UC Irvine couldn’t have imagined a game much better than the one they delivered Friday night at Stanford’s Sunken Diamond. In their first postseason game since 2014, the Anteaters’ Michael Frias pitched a complete-game two-hitter and the offense battered Nevada with 13 hits and a lot of sharp baserunning in a 7-0 victory at the four-team, double-elimination Stanford Regional. The Big West Conference champion Anteaters (41-16) advanced to a winner’s bracket game against host Stanford (34-14) on S...

Whicker: Kawhi Leonard leads Clippers’ charge to defuse Luka Doncic in Game 6

For once, the name on the back of the uniform mattered more. Kawhi Leonard has a fully stamped passport from his visits to places the Clippers never have been. On Friday night he dragged them from the edge or, rather, dragged the Dallas Mavericks to the edge alongside them. His merciless 45 points held off Dallas in front of its own crowd, the largest in the NBA this season, and fashioned a 104-97 win that tied this series, 3-3. It gets settled Sunday at 12:30 p.m. at Staples Center, the final W...

Kawhi Leonard, Clippers survive in Dallas, force Game 7 with Mavericks

DALLAS — The best news for the Clippers: Kawhi Leonard plays for the Clippers. The Moreno Valley native was at his determined best Friday, saving the Clippers’ season with a 45-point explosion – matching his career playoff-high – in their 104-97 victory. “You definitely don’t want to go home,” Leonard surmised, his demeanor no different than it was after a regular-season game in January. “Always wanted to win the game, try to exert my will on the floor, and my teammates had the same mentality.

Whicker: Clippers’ recipe for success just produces sour turnovers in Game 5

On Tuesday, Coach Ty Lue said the Clippers had come upon a “pretty good recipe” for beating the Dallas Mavericks. On Wednesday, dinner was served. Advice to those who sample it: Keep the Robitussin handy. Game 5 of this first-round playoff series was just another example of Clipper Reflux. They were outmaneuvered strategically, their stars were eclipsed, and they kept surrendering the ball to their opponents as if it were the 1990s and they thought the home team was the one in the white shirts. ...

Clippers’ next adjustment: Pump up the volume

The on-court adjustments that Coach Tyronn Lue has fashioned so far have helped completely flip the first-round playoff series between his Clippers and the Dallas Mavericks. After arriving in Dallas down 2-0 in the best-of-seven series, the Clippers won two games by going small and extra-switchy when Lue inserted 6-foot-8 wing Nicolas Batum (who can guard any Maverick on the floor) into the lineup for 7-foot center Ivica Zubac (against whom Luka Doncic was eager to hoist shots). Lue also pushed ...
