Whicker: To make a memory, Clippers dissolve a 2015 nightmare

What goes around comes around, even if it takes a six-year orbit, even if most of us thought there would be an NFL team and a four-year college and a Shake Shack on Mars before we would see the Clippers do what they did Friday night. They did not come off the floor to catch and stuff and mount the Utah Jazz in Game 6. They came from under the floor and through six feet of dirt. They trailed by 25 points in the third quarter. They won the second half, 81-48, got 39 points from a second-round draf...

Tyronn Lue calls on L.A. basketball fans to rally around Clippers

LOS ANGELES — It’s no secret that the Lakers have long been the dominant team in the consciousness of basketball fans in Los Angeles, with a dozen titles in the 61 years since moving from Minneapolis. But with the Clippers advancing to the Western Conference finals for the first time ever with a 131-119 Game 6 victory over the top-seeded Utah Jazz on Friday night, Clippers coach Tyronn Lue made his team’s case to hoop fans this postseason. “I know the Lakers are out and there’s a lot of Laker fa...

Clippers’ Terance Mann has breakout Game 6 effort that shows growth

LOS ANGELES — It wasn’t long ago that it looked like Clippers guard Terance Mann looked tentative and nervous in the postseason. Late in Game 5 of the team’s first-round playoff series against the Dallas Mavericks, the second-year guard passed up an open layup to a teammate for a 3-pointer that missed. It was the type of play that can happen when someone isn’t ready for the big stage. But at the time, teammate Paul George tapped Mann on the head and gave simple advice: “Next play. He was playing...

Clippers go forth again without Kawhi Leonard

LOS ANGELES — No news is … no news. Coach Tyronn Lue had nothing new to report about the status of Clippers star Kawhi Leonard before Game 6 on Friday, which the five-time All-Star missed because of a sprained knee he suffered while planting on a drive late in Game 4. “Yeah, he’s fine,” Lue said, before reiterating, as he had said Thursday, that Leonard wouldn’t play Friday. “That’s the only update I have for you.” Lue declined to say whether the Clippers have a sense yet about how long Leonard ...

Whicker: The 3-point shot is thriving in Utah, but it began in Anaheim

As the Utah Jazz approached Wednesday night’s Game 5 as if the 3-point line were the Berlin Wall, the friends and relatives of Les Selvage must have been smiling. The Jazz took 37 shots in the first half of what became . Thirty were launched from behind the 3-point line, which the American Basketball Association brought us in 1967. Selvage represents a rough thru-line between those days and Wednesday. He attempted 5.9 3-point shots per game for the Anaheim Amigos, who moved to Los Angeles the n...

Alexander: With the Clippers, should we expect the unexpected?

No, I don’t think we can anticipate Kawhi Leonard pulling a Willis Reed, limping out of the tunnel and onto the Staples Center court as a capacity crowd roars Friday night. Clippers coach Ty Lue pretty much ruled that out Thursday when, asked to confirm Leonard’s status for Game 6 against the Utah Jazz, said: “He’s out.” Then again, as screwy a week as it’s been in the NBA, who knows what might happen? Planet Basketball has spun madly out of control the last couple of days. Two coaches fired, an...
