Pelicans’ Davis scores All-Star-record 52 points, and host team gets Cousins in trade

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 22:45:00 PST

DeMarcus Cousins played only 2 minutes and 27 seconds in the NBA All-Star game Sunday night, but still he looked weary as he addressed reporters following the game. 

That’s because even as he jumped up and down, pumping his right fist in the air to celebrate Kevin Durant’s alley-oop lob to Russell...


Dustin Johnson runs away with Genesis Open and takes over No. 1 in world golf rankings

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 19:05:00 PST

For three days, the Genesis Open was shrouded with unknowns, be it the weather, how Arnold Palmer’s grandson would do after leading, or if the golf tour would have a new world No. 1 after almost a year.

When the final round started around noon on a marathon Sunday at Riviera Country Club, there...


John Gibson, Ducks shut out Kings, 1-0

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 22:35:00 PST

Desperation met desperation, but the Kings met John Gibson again.

With great urgency for points, the Ducks and Kings played a game decided by the slimmest of margins. Both sides hit the post or crossbar in the final period, plus several other near-misses at both ends in a free-flowing contest that...


Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal hones right-handed hitting skills in off-season

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 15:50:00 PST

In late October, days after the Dodgers crashed out of the playoffs, Manager Dave Roberts called Yasmani Grandal. The organization had spent the last two seasons transitioning Grandal from a platoon player to a full-time performer. As he pondered the blueprint of a World Series run in 2017, Roberts...


Cameron Maybin vows to bring passion, energy to Angels' clubhouse

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 16:25:00 PST

Cameron Maybin has always viewed himself as a center fielder. That will change this season as an Angel. He also viewed himself as the center of the Detroit Tigers’ clubhouse in 2016, and that, he said, will not change on his new team.

“I was, like, the heartbeat to that locker room last year,”...


Getting chatty has made UCLA talk of the town

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 11:50:00 PST

If recent trends persist, the team that doesn’t like to talk can look back on the time it chattered like teenagers carrying on about the latest photo-sharing app as the moment that changed the trajectory of its season.

UCLA had just been throttled by USC on Jan. 25 when the Bruins lingered in their...

Riviera contenders play second fiddle to Dustin Johnson

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 19:25:00 PST

They spent eight hours Sunday chasing greatness. They could see it for a while, but they could never catch it. And before long, it moved completely out of sight.

By the time Dustin Johnson had birdied the first hole of his final round Sunday in the Genesis Open at Riviera, he had built his lead...


Sahith Theegala has an experience he won't soon forget

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 18:00:00 PST

He spent the final 36 holes of his first pro tournament playing in the same group with Phil Mickelson. He had an animated gallery with family, friends and teammates, a group that made at least as much noise as Mickelson’s always-large following when his putts found the hole.

Not bad for a 19-year-old...


Dodgers trade Vidal Nuno for minor leaguer

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 15:50:00 PST

The Dodgers have traded left-handed pitcher Vidal Nuno to Baltimore for minor league reliever Ryan Moseley. The team needed to clear space for the impending signing of outfielder Franklin Gutierrez, and Nuno appears to be the casualty.

The Dodgers acquired Nuno from Seattle in November in exchange...


Hyun-Jin Ryu says he's ready to prove he belongs in the Dodgers' rotation

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 12:55:00 PST

As Hyun-Jin Ryu clomped down a rain-slicked hill, headed for his first session of live batting practice this spring, a group of fans gathered nearby perked up.

“Good luck this year,” one said as Ryu walked by. “Stay healthy! Stay healthy!”

That task has proved challenging for Ryu in the last two...


UCLA denies USC fifth-straight win over rival with impressive 102-70 rout

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 22:40:00 PST

Bryce Alford drove toward the basket, extending the ball just out of the reach of Elijah Stewart with his outstretched right arm and somehow flipping it in off the backboard while getting bumped. Alford snarled and coolly walked toward the sideline, where he high-fived a few fans before doing the...


Clippers' DeAndre Jordan 'has come a long way' to become an NBA All-Star

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 22:40:00 PST

The pendant hanging around Brett Jordan’s neck is shaped like the fraction, ¼.

It glittered as it rested on his shirt while he sat next to the other two-fourths, and looked down at the court where their final piece prepared for the NBA Slam Dunk contest.

DeAndre Jordan pointed up into the stands...


Bill Plaschke: Bruins go to school on the Trojans

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 21:45:00 PST

Everyone knows the UCLA basketball team can score, and dish, and run through the gym as if they are flying.

But at a rollicking Pauley Pavilion that included all those things Saturday night, the Bruins proved capable of equally important attributes.

They can learn. They can grow. And yes, they...


Kings battle back but fall to Panthers, 3-2

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 21:45:00 PST

The Kings began a stretch Saturday that will see them play seven times in 11 days, with all but one of those games coming against playoff contenders.

Rookie Adrian Kempe is in a rush to help the Kings

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 21:10:00 PST

Adrian Kempe’s NHL debut Thursday was a blur.

Not so much for Kempe, but for everyone else.

“There were players on the ice that couldn’t keep up with him,” marveled Kings Coach Darryl Sutter.

“He’s got wheels,” agreed captain Anze Kopitar said. “He can skate, definitely.”

Sutter is convinced Kempe...


NBA All-Stars: Lakers' Nick Young out after first round in three-point contest

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 20:25:00 PST

Nick Young of the Lakers hadn’t checked in with his young son yet after his first-round elimination from the NBA’s three-point shooting contest.

“I didn’t want to look at his face,” Young said, with an air of mock seriousness. “I didn’t want to see the disappointment.”

Young finished fourth in...


College basketball roundup: Jayhawks close in on Big 12 title

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 20:00:00 PST

No. 3 Kansas never seems to be too far behind to rally for victories.

After another comeback victory against a top-10 team, the Jayhawks are probably too far ahead in the standings for anyone to keep them from winning their 13th consecutive Big 12 title. 

Landen Lucas made two free throws with...

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 18:45:00 PST

Sixty-nine Angels gathered Saturday at Tempe Diablo Stadium for their first full-squad workout of 2017. 

Unseasonable rain pounding the Phoenix area nixed that. But, in a rare instance of public comment, their owner, Arte Moreno expressed excitement about the Angels’ chances this season.

He said...


Riviera's soaked course in 'great shape' thanks to tireless crew

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 18:40:00 PST

Friday’s storm dropped three inches of rain at Riviera Country Club,  filling up bunkers and soaking low-lying areas of the Pacific Palisades layout. And high winds scattered debris from the 100-foot-plus eucalyptus trees throughout the property’s 125 or so acres.

But by the time play started at...


Dustin Johnson leads by one after two unusual days at Riviera

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 18:15:00 PST

If you haven’t been turned off by all the starts and stops, if you have plenty of endurance, then settling in for a near two rounds of play in the Genesis Open at Riviera Country Club could be one way to fill your entire Sunday.

It could be hotly contested or Dustin Johnson , with his rock-solid...


Ducks get competitive juices flowing at practice

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 17:25:00 PST

Ducks Coach Randy Carlyle still has trouble speaking at times because of a case of strep throat that won’t go away. But the Ducks’ frustrations were still voiced loud and clear Saturday. 

In the middle of what was a business-like practice, captain Ryan Getzlaf shouted at assistant coach Trent Yawney...
