Need To De-Stress? Floating In Salt Water Might Be The Solution

Imagine floating in outer space. It’s pitch-dark and you’re naked. Three-quarters of your body is submerged in skin-temperature salt water that makes it difficult to tell where your body stops and the water begins. It’s so dark, there’s no perceptible difference between closing your eyes or leaving them open, aside from the slight sting of salt air. For some people, this sense of total blankness is rejuvenating . Others opt to press a button to turn the lights on. This is what floating in a s...

DENVER — Mikko Rantanen scored two of Colorado’s franchise record-tying six second-period goals, Semyon Varlamov stopped 30 shots and the Avalanche routed the Los Angeles Kings 7-1 on Saturday.

Lonzo Ball injured as Lakers stumble in overtime against James Harden, Houston Rockets

HOUSTON – It was as bright as the last 13 games has been for the Lakers: At one point on Saturday night, they had the game’s leading scorer, the game’s leading assist man, and they were leading Houston, one of their biggest rivals in the West, by 21. With one bad turn of Lonzo Ball’s left ankle, the Lakers stumbled into darkness once again in a spirit-crushing 138-134 overtime loss to the Rockets. Injuries have defined this season so far, and the Lakers took another bad one when Ball went down w...

Luke Walton compares James Harden’s season to Kobe Bryant’s career year

HOUSTON – Entering Saturday night, James Harden was in the midst of a run that has been rarely been seen in the NBA. Since dropping a 50-point triple-double against the Lakers in their last visit on Dec. 13, the reigning MVP has been averaging 42.2 points in his previous 18 games while averaging 9.1 assists and 7.6 rebounds. That stretch includes five triple doubles, and entering the Lakers game, he had scored at least 57 points in back-to-back contest. Luke Walton has seen that kind of dominanc...

Marcus Smart loses his mind in altercation with Hawks' DeAndre' Bembry after ejection

Marcus Smart is known across the NBA for his lack of chill, but the Boston Celtics guard might have taken that reputation a little too far on Saturday. A verbal squabble between Smart and Atlanta Hawks wing DeAndre' Bembry quickly escalated into Smart charging toward his opponent and having to be forcibly removed from the Celtics' game against the Hawks. That came after Smart's second technical foul of the night, earning him automatic ejection and leaving him with four points on 1...

Rumor: Suns, Magic have inquired about Knicks' Frank Ntilikina

Where do the Knicks stand on Frank Ntilikina, the No. 8 overall pick in the 2017 NBA draft (taken ahead of Dennis Smith Jr. Zach Collins, and Donovan Mitchell)? This should tell you all you need to know: The Denver Nuggets decided to cast Emmanuel Mudiay aside and the Knicks traded for him and instantly Mudiay jumped Ntilikina on the depth chart. Ntilikina has played good defense but unimpressive offense for the Knicks this season and there is a thought from other teams around the league they ma...

Heisler: With Kyrie Irving, Jimmy Butler looking wiggy, list of stars who might be available keeps growing

Now, the free agent summer to end all free agent summers. Of course, this is a big deal around here, once the glamor capital of the NBA, better known lately as its leader in salary cap space. A year ago the Lakers had two max-contract slots, cashed one in on LeBron James and saved the second for 2019. This year, it’s the Clippers who can create two max slots. Happily for the local teams, this isn’t a thin class like last summer’s, which was basically LeBron and Paul George. This one is loaded wi...

Behind the scenes of DeMarcus Cousins' long-awaited return to the court

It was a show before the show as approximately 70-80 NBA professionals — front-office personnel, scouts, agents, photographers, videographers and writers — camped tightly along the sideline and baseline to watch DeMarcus Cousins warm up. When Cousins emerged from the locker room to take the court and saw the massive crowd awaiting his arrival, he shook his head. “That [expletive] was crazy,” Cousins told Yahoo Sports an hour before making his season debut Friday against the Los Angeles Clippers ...
