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...

Nets Send Kings To 8th Straight Loss

NEW YORK (AP/CBS13) – Bruce Brown scored 13 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter to lead the Brooklyn Nets to a 127-118 win over the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday night.

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. He has been for a while,” Lue said of George, ...

Lakers’ Anthony Davis makes All-Star cut, but is unlikely to play

Anthony Davis hasn’t had the season that he wanted, but in the eyes of NBA coaches, he’s still an All-Star. The Laker forward was selected as an All-Star reserve on Tuesday night, as voted on by the league’s coaches. It’s Davis’ eighth consecutive selection to the NBA’s marquee midseason exhibition, which will be played on March 7 in Atlanta in a pared-down format that won’t involve the event’s usual flair. Davis hit the game-winning free throw in last year’s exhibition, but he is unlikely to pa...

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...

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...

Dodgers take ‘Super Team’ label into spring training

The NBA has provided fertile ground for the “Super Team” concept. The Houston Rockets collected four future Hall of Famers in 1996-97 – Hakeem Olajuwon, Clyde Drexler, Charles Barkley and Scottie Pippen. The Boston Celtics brought together Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen to win a championship in 2008. The Miami Heat went to four consecutive Finals (winning twice) when Lebron James brought his talents together with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh starting in 2010-11. The Golden State Warriors...

Lakers’ Anthony Davis says tendon injury is ‘nothing serious,’ but he’s being cautious

Throughout the last season-and-a-half, Anthony Davis has tried to take pride in playing through nicks and bruises – minor injuries that earlier in his career might have made him go to the locker room, or sit out games. But in sitting out the past two contests, with pain in his right Achilles tendon, Davis doesn’t want to make what he maintains is not a serious injury into something more concerning. “If it was a quad or ankle, anything like that, I wouldn’t mind playing,” he said. “But I just, do...

Players Taking To Social Media Regarding COVID Protocols

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, The Sabres are fuming because they were obligated to play a home game last Sunday against the Devils under perhaps murky circumstances while, on the other hand, the NBA’s Nets are livid because Kevin Durant was not permitted to remain on the floor on Friday. Which is to suggest, or perhaps remind, that attempting to play pro sports seasons through the teeth of a pandemic is an imperfect science and there will be room for criticism of both an abu...
