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...

Four storylines to watch as Lakers go without Anthony Davis

Editor’s note: This is the Friday, Feb. 19 edition of the Purple & Bold Lakers newsletter from reporter Kyle Goon. To receive the newsletter in your inbox, sign up here. 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 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...

Kobe Bryant likely was, at some point, your favorite player’s favorite player

Long before they started launching the 30-footers that would lead to their NBA careers, the basketball dreams of the Curry brothers were much closer to the rim. On a 7-foot hoop, they would trade off imitating roles in one of the most iconic plays they knew: Kobe Bryant’s alley-oop lob to Shaquille O’Neal in Game 7 of the 2000 Western Conference finals. As time went on, Steph Curry would try the moves of all of his idols, including Allen Iverson and Steve Nash. But even now, at 32, he acknowledg...
