What we learned from the Lakers’ 114-90 loss to Oklahoma City

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 08:35:00 PST

Here’s what we learned from the Lakers’ 114-90 loss in Oklahoma City:

The Lakers miss Lonzo Ball

Wednesday’s loss was incredibly predictable based on one indicator — the Lakers don’t win when Lonzo Ball doesn’t play. Now, to be fair, they don’t win a lot when Ball is on the court, but when the...


Rockets' Trevor Ariza, Gerald Green suspended two games for postgame altercation with Clippers

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 19:55:00 PST

Clippers coach Doc Rivers said he “probably” did not agree with the NBA’s suspending only Houston’s Trevor Ariza and Gerald Green two games each for entering the Clippers’ locker room to, in language from the league, “confront a player from the opposing team” following the Clippers’ victory over...

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 12:55:00 PST

Steve Alford is about to get a dual reminder of the family fun he’s been missing this season.

There will be coach Wayne Tinkle...

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 16:40:00 PST

The New England Patriots have enjoyed an embarrassment of riches.

As for the other three NFL teams left standing? They have endured some rich embarrassments over the years, with plenty of heartache.

Jacksonville is among four teams that have never gotten to the Super Bowl.

Bulls' Kris Dunn falls face first after dunk, chips and dislocates two teeth [Video]

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 08:10:00 PST

Kris Dunn did not lose any teeth. And the Chicago Bulls point guard didn’t suffer a concussion.

But, man, the face-first fall he took following a dunk Wednesday night against Golden State sure looks painful.

According to the Bulls, Dunn chipped and dislocated his two front teeth. Dunn was evaluated...

The admissions office at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology announced its early admission decisions at exactly 6:28 p.m. Eastern time on Dec. 14 as part of an obsession with pi, a formula in math and physics. Pi is really the number 3.14, so it was pi doubled when teenagers around the world...

Ducks take down Penguins

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 23:15:00 PST

With a nationally televised game against the defending Stanley Cup champions, this was the kind of performance the Ducks needed to show just what kind of force they could be.

Their forecheck was strong. Their play around the net, relentless. And even though they fell behind early to a dynamic team...

Quiet Ingram lets his on-court actions speak for Lakers

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 21:55:00 PST

Brandon Ingram, the sleepy-eyed, pencil-thin second-year forward, probably won’t ever be able to howl at his teammates like Thunder guard Russell Westbrook. He’ll never be able to convey a message with a menacing stare like Kobe Bryant. He won’t be able to win a room with a high volume of words.


Harvard-Westlake has no answer for Crespi’s Williams

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 21:25:00 PST

The McDonald’s All-American Game announced players selected to the game earlier this week, and there were none from Southern California. Brandon Williams of Encino Crespi took no offense. He missed all of last season because of a knee injury.

Anyone who has seen him play in recent weeks, however,...


Thunder stroll past Lonzo-less Lakers 114-90

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 21:20:00 PST

Throughout the last week, Lakers coach Luke Walton has talked about how success for his team is measured in less conventional ways than wins and losses.

USC starts to click as injured players return

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 18:45:00 PST

As far as stability goes, the USC basketball team hasn’t experienced much this season.

But with the return of some injured players, and after two Pac-12 Conference victories and a long-awaited decision in the De’Anthony Melton saga, the Trojans (13-6 overall, 4-2 in Pac-12 play) hope to navigate...


Kings' Jake Muzzin is hopeful he can play Thursday after missing three games with upper-body injury

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 16:05:00 PST

The streak was and was not a point of pride for Jake Muzzin.

The Kings defenseman played in 281 consecutive games, or more than three seasons, before an upper-body injury ended it this month. It was minuscule compared to the 830-game streak that recently ended for Ducks winger Andrew Cogliano,...

Favorable conditions should yield plenty of low golf scores at CareerBuilder Challenge

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 15:40:00 PST

It’s a simple formula, really. Take three golf courses in perfect condition, with smooth-as-table-top greens that invite aggressive short-iron shots. Toss in mild, sunny weather and a wide-open tournament field. It all adds up to scores so low that birdies are par for the course.

The CareerBuilder...

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 13:15:00 PST
