Clippers’ professional scorer Lou Williams impressing with his defense

When Southern California News Group columnist Mark Whicker asked Paul George at media day what he envisioned the Clippers – already a top-10 defensive team last season – being able to accomplish defensively with some key additions, George responded in jest. “It’s gonna be scary,” said George, a four-time NBA All-Defensive team selection. “I mean, we got Lou-Will …” Then George paused and chuckled before naming Clippers who either have established, or are developing, reputations as staunch defend...

Chargers point to lack of running game for recent offensive struggles

COSTA MESA — Left tackle Trent Scott surveyed the locker room searching for tape to wrap the ankle he rolled Sunday night during the Chargers’ scuffle with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers grabbed a taunting Mike Hilton by the jersey after Rivers threw the game-ending interception with 54 seconds left in regulation. That’s when the teams began to shove one another, causing Scott to roll his ankle before the Chargers fell to the Steelers 24-17 at Dignity Health Sports P...

Philip Rivers on grabbing Mike Hilton at end of game: I was disappointed

After Philip Rivers threw an interception to Cameron Sutton with less than a minute to go in Sunday night's loss to the Steelers, the Chargers quarterback could be seen grabbing Steelers cornerback Mike Hilton while appearing to air some grievances directly into his ear. No one would blame Rivers for being frustrated by the way things have been going. The Chargers have lost four of their last five games and the offense has turned the ball over six times in their last two losses, but Rivers ...

Kawhi Leonard might make his Clippers debut this preseason – maybe

PLAYA VISTA — The Clippers might give fans a glimpse of one of their new superstars this preseason after all. Coach Doc Rivers hinted at the start of training camp that the team might treat Kawhi Leonard like an NFL quarterback and, out of an abundance of caution, hold him out of preseason games altogether. But with guards Patrick Beverley (“nothing serious,” Rivers said) and Rodney McGruder (stepped on someone’s foot) getting banged up a bit in practice Wednesday, Rivers opened the door for the...

Broncos-Chargers Preview: Joe Flacco, Philip Rivers In Veteran QB Battle

(CBS Denver) — The Denver Broncos have stumbled to an 0-4 start to the season. Despite new quarterback Joe Flacco, the two-back running attack of Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman and a serviceable defense, the Broncos can’t seem to find the win column. Two of their losses were decided by a two-point margin. Had those last-second field goals not occurred, the conversation surrounding this team would sound very different.

With Kawhi Leonard and the Toronto Raptors about to tip off the NBA Finals, Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers took an opportunity to heap some praise on the player he hopes to have on his roster next season. It's no secret the Clippers are expected to pursue Leonard when he hits free agency this summer, and the superstar has been rumoured to have Los Angeles on his shortlist of destinations since the moment he was traded to Toronto.
