Whicker: Clippers slow Jazz’s Donovan Mitchell enough in Game 3 win

Donovan Mitchell was no longer playing solo on the Bonneville Salt Flats. Paul George was no longer playing against his own shadows. Kawhi Leonard was no longer using the Oliver Twist approach, taking only what he was given. It leads to the type of Western Conference semifinal series that the Clippers were hoping to create, after they left the Utah beehive trailing, 0-2. A longer one. The first step was a smooth and ruthless 132-106 victory over the top-seeded Jazz in Game 3, the type of pattern...

Clippers converge on Donovan Mitchell as Jazz’s injury concerns grow

LOS ANGELES — Moments after taking a hobbled jog back to the visiting locker room, Donovan Mitchell slipped back through the Utah Jazz bench and slung an arm over the shoulder of his head coach. It looked at least a little like the 24-year-old was lobbying for a return to the court as the Jazz trailed in the fourth quarter of Game 3 of their second-round playoff series against the Clippers. But as he tried to work Quin Snyder on Saturday night, Kawhi Leonard was working on the court: The Clipper...

Senate Bill 2 is the wrong way to create a police decertification process

There’s no problem so terrible that the California Legislature cannot find a way to make it worse. That’s the story of Senate Bill 2, a legislative effort to create a process for decertifying problem law enforcement officers. California is one of only four states that doesn’t have a decertification system, and there’s a broad consensus, even among law enforcement unions, that this should be remedied. But leave it to the California Legislature to turn a police reform bill into an open vein that b...

Clippers’ stars deliver in Game 3, trimming Jazz’s series lead to 2-1

LOS ANGELES — There wasn’t a soul chanting “over-rated” at Paul George on Saturday – certainly not in the more-friendly confines of Staples Center, and not at the well-attended watch party at Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City, either. And no one will be asking why Kawhi Leonard hasn’t booted up Terminator Mode – because he cranked the dial in a big way during the second half. Lurking like the mythological snow wasset that inspired one of his New Balance sneaker designs, Leonard leaped out of the sn...

Clippers waiting for 3-point shots to fall

LOS ANGELES — If you’d have told Clippers coach Tyronn Lue that, in the first two games of their Western Conference semifinal series against Utah, his team would have had 32 3-point attempts with a defender positioned 6 feet or farther away, he would have been thrilled. After all, his team shot a league-best 44.4% when they got such clean looks this season. As it’s turned out, he was less happy with what transpired on those shots after the first two games of the series, when his team shot just 2...

How many opinions does it take to hit the $100M ARR Club?

In a world of talking points and corporate jargon, opinions are refreshing — and Expensify CEO and founder David Barrett is full of them. One of his earliest lessons in life, for example, was that basically everyone is wrong about basically everything. If instilling that at a young age doesn’t force you to become an entrepreneur, I don’t know what does. Barrett’s ethos has, as reporter Anna Heim puts, led to Expensify having “its own take on almost everything” from hiring without job titles and ...

“No Problem” is Shirking Your Responsibility

“When you say, “no problem,” you’re letting yourself off the hook, refusing to acknowledge what was said and closing the door for a useful interaction. Because there is a problem. Exploring what the problem is is far better than denying it.”This, from consummate marketer and author, Seth Godin.I am as guilty as anyone in not coaching by giving immediate constructive feedback. When someone apologizes for an error I’m the first to say “no problem.”Thursday night, Donovan Mitchell of the Utah Jazz...

Whicker: College football’s playoff expansion confounds

The most engaging, involving and dramatic regular seasons in sports will disappear in 2026. No longer will you begin your Saturday by flipping on the TV at 9 a.m. and watch the dominoes fall until 11 p.m., from Columbus to Gainesville to Norman to Eugene. No longer will every game count. Consistency will be shelved. Health will be devalued. And, in all likelihood, the end of the road will feature the same crimson, orange and scarlet suspects. The College Football Playoff has totally erased what ...

Clippers, down 2-0 to the Utah Jazz, have issues on both ends

SALT LAKE CITY — The last time the Clippers fell behind 2-0 in a playoff series, back on May 25, they made it a point to express their unwavering confidence. Reggie Jackson wore a T-shirt adorned with a happy face to his virtual postgame news conference and signed off that night by saying: “No worries. Remember, no worries!” Clippers Coach Tyronn Lue also was unequivocally calm, shrugging off the Clippers’ first two losses at Staples Center: “I am not worried about it,” he said. “You gotta win f...

Alexander: Clippers’ task is not impossible, but it’s not easy

There are parallels, and there’s one important difference. The Clippers are down 2-0 in a series, again. They’re playing a team with a dynamic player who demands special attention, again. This time they’re coming home after losing two on the road, but those losses were to the team with the NBA’s best regular-season record. They do have a one-game winning streak at Staples Center, and the odds are it’s going to sound like a library compared to what they’ve faced in Salt Lake City this week, which...

Alexander: In Utah, they don’t limit the noise for Jazz games

Home-court advantage, historically the Holy Grail for any NBA team with designs on going far in the playoffs, is yet another aspect of the game that has been knocked askew in 2021 even as Pandemic Basketball transitions into Post-Pandemic Basketball. The ground rules remained the same as they’ve always been during the regular season: You win more games, you earn that extra home game if needed. Unlike last season, when all of the playoff hopefuls were shepherded into the Orlando bubble, there was...

Ivica Zubac back in Clippers’ starting lineup for Game 2 against Jazz

SALT LAKE CITY — Nineteen minutes, 21 minutes, 11 minutes. Eight, 20, five. Three, 20 … TBD. Ivica Zubac’s minutes have fluctuated wildly so far this postseason, and looking ahead Wednesday to Game 2 against the Utah Jazz, the 7-foot Croatian center reiterated that he was game for whatever Coach Tyronn Lue needed. Lue needed him back on the floor at tip-off, lining up immediately with three-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert. Down 1-0 in their Western Conference semifinal series a...

A new fire has started every day in Utah since May 17. Hot, dry conditions mean more could spark soon

So far this year, there have been 326 total wildfires in Utah -- 42 of those fires were started in just the last week. And since May 17th, there has been at least one ignition every single day. Sadly, 90% of those fires were human-caused, leading to over 12,000 acres burned.
