Lakers making memories, learning lessons in the bubble

Frank Vogel’s favorite moment in the bubble – before Game 5 on Friday night – sprung to mind immediately: “The A.D. shot.” No doubt about it, Anthony Davis’ buzzer-beating 3-point fadeaway won’t fade from memory any time soon. That game-winner over the outstretched arm of Nikola Jokic gave the Lakers a stunning 105-103 victory in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals over the Denver Nuggets and gained the first-year Laker entry to an exclusive club, becoming just the seventh Laker to hit a pos...

These COVID-19 changes at theme parks need to become permanent

In trying to persuade California Governor Gavin Newsom to allow theme parks to reopen, managers at Disney highlighted all the things they have changed at Florida’s Walt Disney World Resort and will use at Disneyland to help stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus. I do not have a medical degree, so I cannot pass judgment on how effective those new procedures are at stopping the virus. But I can say that many of them have the potential to make visiting a theme park a much more pleasant experience, ...

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Lightsabers, Jedi Robes, Sith Artifacts & More Merch Coming to Disney’s Online Store

Since the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at the Disneyland and Disney World theme parks, there has been a collection of Star Wars merchandise that you can only get within the park shops. But with Disneyland still closed and Disney World not operating at full capacity, Disney theme parks aren’t selling nearly as much merchandise as they usually do, so they’re releasing some of it onto Disney’s online shop for the first time ever.

It did so of course with a lot of changes and restrictions in place to ensure the health and safety of its cast members and guests. Disney also reopened as Florida’s positive COVID numbers were rising at an alarming rate, creating a perfect storm of bad luck and bad press. The fact is though that other Orland...

NBA players reportedly vote to resume playoffs after sitting out in protest

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — After 20 hours of tension over racial injustices that threatened to upend the NBA’s restart, players have reportedly agreed to resume the playoffs. ESPN was first to report that NBA players met Thursday morning at the Coronado Springs Resort and voted to play again, less than a day after the Milwaukee Bucks sat out their planned Game 5 against the Orlando Magic in the first round of the NBA playoffs. The protest stemmed from widespread outrage over police shooting Jacob ...

Clippers’ Patrick Beverley misses Game 2 against Mavericks with strained left calf

The Clippers had to deal with the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday without their vocal leader, the guy his coach described as “unstatable.” Doc Rivers announced before tip-off that his squad would be without Patrick Beverley, their all-world pest, for at least that night’s game. The guard continues to be hampered by the strained left calf that sidelined him for five of the team’s bubble seeding games. Rivers said Beverley “just didn’t feel” right during shootaround Wednesday. “He just wasn’t moving...

Clippers see room to improve vs. Mavericks in Game 2

As far as playoff victories go, this one left plenty to be desired, Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said Tuesday before sitting his team down to review film of the previous night’s 118-110 victory over the Dallas Mavericks in the bubble at Walt Disney World Resort. The second-seeded Clippers are up 1-0 in their first-round Western Conference matchup, but it wasn’t an easy win – and it won’t be an easy series. Game 2 is Wednesday. Rivers repeated his critique from Monday night, finding most fault with ...

Clippers’ Montrezl Harrell credits his grandmother for his love of basketball

Basketball fans owe a debt of gratitude to Montrezl Harrell’s grandmother, whose influence set the passionate big man on a path to professional basketball, and whose recent death has hit him hard. “My grandmother was the one introduced me to the game of basketball,” Harrell said Tuesday on a Zoom video conference. “One of my biggest supporters, biggest fans, one of my best friends. Only way to put it. There’s no other way to explain the things she done for me. She was my entire world. “My grandm...

Clippers welcome back Montrezl Harrell

“MA this RUN for YOU” With his grandmother in his thoughts, Montrezl Harrell rejoined his Clippers teammates Monday morning, just hours ahead of tip-off in the Western Conference first-round playoff series against the Dallas Mavericks. A month passed since he left the bubble July 17, and, for that matter, 160 days elapsed since Harrell played in an NBA game. No matter; the Clippers welcomed back the hard-playing reserve center who’d been away mourning the death of his grandmother. “It was great ...

Clippers’ rhythm is missing but their spirits strong before playoff opener

You’d think a team that just set several single-season franchise shooting and scoring records, whose best player averaged a career-best 27.1 points per game and whose top four offensive contributors were more prolific than any quartet since 1968 would have some serious swagger heading into the playoffs. And, yes, the Clippers are a confident, spirited bunch, but even so, they’re not hitting the playoffs at full stride. They’re not exactly limping in as the Western Conference No. 2 seed, but they...

Clippers still without Montrezl Harrell, who is in a 7-day quarantine

If and when Montrezl Harrell returns to the lineup for the Clippers, it’ll be right into the playoff fire, Coach Doc Rivers said Friday, when he suggested for the first time that the Sixth Man of the Year finalist might not return to the floor this season. “We’ll just throw him in there, as you know, he’s earned that right,” said Rivers of the Clippers’ standout reserve center, who was averaging career highs in points (18.6), rebounds (7.1) and minutes (27.8) before the NBA’s hiatus began in Mar...

Clippers rookie Terance Mann takes confidence cues from veterans

No amount of sage advice could’ve prepared Terance Mann for his rookie season in the NBA; there simply wasn’t a blueprint for a season interrupted for four-plus months by a pandemic before being reset in a sealed-off Florida bubble. But though everyone involved is a rookie in regard to the situation and surroundings at Walt Disney World Resort, the game is the game, and the Clippers’ institutional wisdom for what works when you’re coming off the bench stands. “We follow the leadership of Lou Wil...

Clippers look forward to Montrezl Harrell’s return to the court

Montrezl Harrell can’t come out and play yet, but he’s close enough now that his teammates can bang on his door and give him a holler. The Clippers’ backup big man — one of the three finalists for Sixth Man of the Year, the NBA announced last week — arrived at Walt Disney World Resort within the past couple days. He’s now in the midst of the NBA’s mandated four-day quarantine for players returning to the bubble, one of many precautions meant to ward off coronavirus on the NBA campus. Harrell dep...

With a series of tweets, Harrell — who left the bubble July 17 — announced his a...

Clippers’ Doc Rivers foresaw a coaching future for Nets’ Jacque Vaughn

Perhaps not specifically on Sunday evening, but longer term, Doc Rivers is rooting for Jacque Vaughn. Entering the game against the Clippers, Brooklyn’s interim coach — promoted in March following Kenny Atkinson’s midseason departure — is 5-2, including 3-2 in the bubble. Brooklyn clinched a playoff berth last week with a 119-106 win over the Sacramento Kings in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. It’s the second NBA head coaching stint for the Pasadena native, who starred at John Muir High School, where...

Suns star Devin Booker spoiled Lou Williams’ return to action Tuesday, pouring in a game-high 35 points – including the game-winning basket, after spinning and shooting over the outstretched arms of Paul George with time expiring – to lift Phoenix 117-115 over the Clippers. The Suns (29-39) improve to 3-0 in the bubble, improving their chances of forcing a play-in for a playoff berth following the eight scheduled seeding games at Walt Disney World Resort.
