Clippers’ next challenge: the surging Bucks

The Clippers have great timing – if the objective is to line up opponents in a way that’ll help forge their mettle for challenges ahead. Lately, L.A. has been catching opponents on the upswing or after an extra day of rest – both of which will be true Sunday when they meet the Milwaukee Bucks in a showdown between conference powers at 12:30 p.m. on ABC. The Clippers (24-11) are 3-3 in their most recent stretch of games. In the past week and a half, they’ve played twice against Utah – the NBA’s h...

Clippers’ second-half schedule starts March 11

Now, for those halftime adjustments. The NBA released its second-half schedule Tuesday, pandemic permitting. For the Clippers, the back half of the regular season begins March 11 against the Golden State Warriors in a game at Staples Center. At 23-10, the Clippers woke up Wednesday with the league’s second-best record as they head on the road for the final five-game sprint before the All-Star Game on March 7. Only Western Conference rival Utah – at 25-6 – has had more first-half success, althoug...

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...

Clippers’ bench is blossoming right on cue

The Clippers’ bench is blooming. It’s a different arrangement this season, of course, without the star-bright pairing of Montrezl Harrell and Lou Williams overwhelming opposing reserves and dominating Sixth Man of the Year voting. But it’s what Marcus Morris Sr. envisioned when he volunteered to come off the bench before playing his first game this season, planting the seed for what he thought could become a special second unit. Because when you sprinkle in a couple of former first options, a st...

Clippers hopeful Patrick Beverley will play Wednesday

Depending how you see a thing, “questionable” can be cause for a concern or a reason to rejoice. In the Clippers’ case, getting even a “maybe” on the RSVP from Patrick Beverley is good news, especially as Paul George remains sidelined by a swollen bone in his right foot. While George remained in L.A., Beverley made the trip to Minnesota with the team Tuesday, and coach Tyronn Lue expressed relief that the Clippers’ emotional, vocal leader is healthy enough to warrant a questionable designation a...

Clippers’ Kawhi Leonard on All-Star Game: ‘We all know why we’re playing it. It’s money’

LeBron James – the early leader in All-Star fan voting among Western Conference players – is no fan of the idea of the game that his supporters are so enthusiastically setting him up for: “I got zero energy, zero excitement.” Ditto, said the NBA’s two-time MVP Giannis Antentekoumpo: “The Big Dog says he has zero excitement, zero energy for the All-Star Game – I’m the same way,” said the Milwaukee Bucks star Friday. For what it’s worth, Sacramento Kings guard De’Aaron Fox– who’s averaging 20.2 po...

Clippers thriving thanks to third-quarter clampdown

While you’re up, going to the kitchen for a snack between halves of Clippers basketball, coach Tyronn Lue is earning his paycheck. Especially in the back half of January, the Clippers have made it a point to put their foot down in the third quarter. Pedal to the metal. Square on the proverbial neck. In eight games since Jan. 14, the Clippers have a positive net rating of 35.6 in third-quarter action – a stat indicating that, in that span, they’ve been nearly 36 points better than their opponents...

Clippers adopt Tyronn Lue’s ‘through thick and thin’ motto

Remember, after Game 1, back on Dec. 22, when Tyronn Lue declared that the Clippers’ “camaraderie is great,” and insisted that despite any past grievances, his team would not only share the basketball but play with the ol’ one-for-all, all-for-one spirit? “That’s our motto for the season, like, we’re cheering each other,” Lue said after the Clippers beat the Lakers that night, delivering him his first victory as the team’s head coach. “When somebody does well, we want to be there.

Inglewood mayor’s former assistant alleges tumultuous nine-year romance in lawsuit

The former assistant and ex-girlfriend of Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts Jr. alleges in a lawsuit filed Tuesday that he coerced her into performing sexual acts while at work, stalked her at home when she tried to end their affair and then engineered her suspension and ultimate firing. The lawsuit describes a tumultuous nine-year relationship between Butts and his assistant, Melanie McDade-Dickens, during which she became one of the city’s highest paid employees with a total compensation of more ...

Inglewood will use eminent domain to acquire land needed for Clippers’ arena

Inglewood plans to use eminent domain to secure 11 properties needed for the proposed Los Angeles Clippers basketball arena project, according to a staff report. The properties along Century Boulevard near Prairie Avenue, just across the street from SoFi Stadium that is home to the Los Angeles Rams and Chargers, include two warehouses and a Church’s Chicken. The rest are vacant or only used for billboards, the report states. Once acquired, Inglewood will transfer the land to the arena’s private ...

Clippers getting big production from Ivica Zubac off the bench

LOS ANGELES — The sequence began normally enough, with Clippers center Ivica Zubac grabbing one of his 11 rebounds Sunday in a 108-100 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder. But then it got a little weird. Zubac looked for someone to pass to, saw Lou Williams was well covered and thought better of forcing a pass to the guard. Instead, the 7-footer started upcourt, dribbling with his right hand and surveying the floor, as if channeling Denver’s Nikola Jokic, the center who’s averaging 9.6 assist...
