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...

Paul George happy to be an All-Star, but no fan of game being held in 2021

Reggie Jackson cut short his postgame comments after Tuesday’s 135-116 victory over Washington; the All-Star of the evening had arrived. Jackson didn’t go, though, without giving his friend a properly hyped introduction: “The man y’all want is coming up — Pauuul George! Big buckets … No. 13, that man, P.G. — Paul George is coming to talk to you all, so here you all go! “Oh,” Jackson added, “Seven-time All-Star, don’t forget that!” A grinning George took his seat in front of the Zoom screen, fres...

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, ...

Clippers put Luke Kennard on standby

LOS ANGELES — Before he’d even played an official minute in a Clippers uniform, the team signed fourth-year guard Luke Kennard to a four-year, $64 million contract extension on Dec. 21 (of which $56 million is guaranteed and another $8 million is incentivized). By mid-February, Kennard found himself having a conversation with Clippers Coach Tyronn Lue about platooning with Terance Mann, the multi-positional second-year player. “It can go back and forth,” Lue said Sunday, via Zoom video conferenc...

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...

With Dennis Schröder’s return ‘uncertain,’ Lakers leaning on depth to compete

It’s been the custom for the season, but the Lakers have had the great fortune to not have to deal with much of it. When the league’s COVID-19 protocols are involved, it’s often hard to tell just how long a player or staff will be missing. That’s what the Lakers are saying now about Dennis Schröder, their 27-year-old point guard who started every game until Thursday night, when he was a late scratch against Brooklyn. He didn’t practice on Friday, and the Lakers are unsure when he’ll next be able...

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...

Clippers looking forward to ‘tough’ showdown with high-octane Brooklyn Nets

The Clippers had just taken care of business against the Knicks on Sunday and hadn’t yet trained their attention on what’s ahead on the docket. Even so, Paul George could acknowledge the nature of the next one. Because it’s big. “Yeah, I think everyone is looking forward to that matchup, this ball club and the world,” said George, the six-time All-Star who’ll lend his shine power to a star-studded affair Tuesday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. He and Kawhi Leonard will lead the Clippers agai...

TV Ratings: NBA Viewership Up Through on MLK Day

Clippers stay hot from deep in runaway win vs. Kings

The Clippers thought deeply Friday, flexing both their depth and their prowess from deep as they ran away with a 138-100 victory in Sacramento. Surely, the Clippers’ stars powered them; Paul George gave them an easy 26 points in 30 minutes and Kawhi Leonard added a precise 27 points and six assists in 28 minutes. But those guys’ efforts were complemented nicely both by their teammates’ long-range firepower and substantive contributions from Marcus Morris Sr. and Reggie Jackson. With veteran guar...

Led by Brandon Ingram, former Lakers have found their place on Pelicans

LOS ANGELES — In the first month of his Lakers tenure, just before he hit a winning lottery ticket, Coach Frank Vogel still felt pretty good about the roster he was inheriting. With Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball and Josh Hart, the Lakers wouldn’t have been as good as they were last season with Anthony Davis. But Vogel definitely thought they could be good. “My mindset at that point was that we have a lot of talent around LeBron James,” Vogel said. “We’re going to be a team-first team and those youn...

With Lou Williams and Patrick Beverley out, Reggie Jackson gets a start for Clippers

The Clippers took the court on Friday in Sacramento without two of their veteran guards: Starring Sixth Man Lou Williams was sidelined with a sore hip, Coach Tyronn Lue said, and starting point guard Patrick Beverley was away for personal reasons, per the team. Reggie Jackson – going from zero minutes to starter’s minutes – stood in for Beverley. Entering Friday, Jackson hadn’t played at all in two games. And he hadn’t played more than eight minutes in the two before that. A starter in 348 of hi...

With limited ways to build chemistry, Lakers’ on-court success has helped

After Tuesday night in Houston, Dennis Schröder’s pockets were a little bit lighter, but he didn’t seem to mind. A little light betting is part of the ecosystem of many teams. A post-practice shooting session has a touch more urgency if there are a couple of bucks on the line. Flubs like Kentavious Caldwell-Pope’s or Montrezl Harrell’s missed dunks can be a little funnier knowing that they’ll have to “put something in the pot,” as Schröder put it. And then there are moments like LeBron James’ no...

Lakers thump Thunder to stay unbeaten on the road

It’s a season in which home-court advantage means as little as ever, but it still has to mean something: The Lakers have not yet lost on the road. Momentum continued to pick up for the league leaders, as the Lakers (10-3) swept aside the rebuilding Oklahoma City Thunder, 128-99, on Wednesday night to improve to 7-0 away from Staples Center – the best road start in franchise history. The visitors never trailed. Wednesday’s effort looked as breezy as the previous two wins in Houston: LeBron James ...

Thunder’s George Hill on COVID-19 restrictions: ‘I’m gonna do what I want to do’

The rise of 16 new COVID-19 cases in the NBA since Jan. 6 is ample evidence that there are cracks in the system. But few people are trumpeting their dissatisfaction like George Hill. The outspoken Thunder point guard cried foul on the NBA’s latest restrictions for the next two weeks, the most notable of which is a restriction preventing players from leaving team hotels or having guests (which could include longtime friends or family members). Hill said he didn’t understand some of the rules, mos...

Does the James Harden trade help the Nets catch the Lakers?

Editor’s note: This is the Wednesday, Jan. 13 edition of the Purple & Bold Lakers newsletter from reporter Kyle Goon. To receive the newsletter in your inbox, sign up here. A 117-100 drubbing by the Lakers was the final straw in a frayed relationship for Houston and James Harden, who said Tuesday night, “I don’t think it can be fixed.” So the Rockets finally made the blockbuster trade that Harden was reportedly asking for, sending him to Brooklyn for  a package that includes a ton of draft cap...
