Small-ball Rockets outplay Lakers down the stretch

first_img How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years The Lakers caught one former MVP on an off-night. Against constant Lakers blitzes and double-teams, as well as the pressure of Avery Bradley, Harden was merely ordinary, shooting just 3 for 10 for 14 points – a far cry from his league-leading average of 35.8 ppg.The equalizer for much of the night was the Rockets’ 3-point shooting: They were 10 for 18 from deep in the first half, after which the teams were tied at 63 apiece. Covington hit two of the last nails with 3-pointers in the closing run that shut the door on the Lakers’ comeback. The Lakers only outrebounded their opponent by one.Whereas the Lakers had some success in the last meeting guarding Westbrook with Kyle Kuzma, Westbrook’s explosive drives were a problem throughout this one.The Lakers created their own problems, Vogel said, by forcing the ball to Davis down low. The short-lineup Rockets ended up with more blocked shots (five) than their hosts, and six fourth-quarter turnovers helped cinch the result. The Lakers also felt they could have handled weak-side passing better than they did, at times abandoning their free-flow passing philosophy.“That was our game plan, though, to try to set screens, slip and force a switch, whether the guys who handle the ball drive or we throw it over the top,” Davis said. “But it was some plays where I got the ball where I could have had some kick-outs.”Related Articles PreviousLos Angeles Lakers guard Danny Green looks up toward the retired jerseys of Kobe Bryant during the national anthem prior to the team’s NBA basketball game against the Houston Rockets on Thursday, Feb. 6, 2020, in Los Angeles.

(AP Photo/Mark J. Terrill)ExpandLOS ANGELES — For one night at least, shooting got the best of size.Standing as a contrast to the Lakers’ length-heavy philosophy, the rebuilt Houston Rockets offered an interesting counterpoint in what is admittedly a small sample size: A lineup with no one taller than 6-foot-7 knocked around the Lakers in the closing minutes, going on a 19-5 closing run to secure a 121-111 win on Thursday night.It didn’t ring of a fatal flaw for the Lakers (38-12), who have split their two meetings with Houston so far this season. But it was a compelling quandary to consider after the team went through several reported flirtations with some roster changes at the Thursday trade deadline before standing pat.“It’s really not that much different than what we see with a lot of teams that have centers that shoot threes,” Coach Frank Vogel said. “The difference is they have two elite, elite superstar offensive players who you’re trying to figure out how to guard, with five 3-point shooters out there. So it’s a challenge.” Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersAnthony Davis was among the game’s standouts with 32 points and 13 rebounds, and LeBron James had another 18-point, 15-assist double-double (with nine rebounds) while showcasing highlight dunks against the Rockets’ largely undefended rim. But Houston’s edge came from deep: The Rockets finished with 19 3-pointers to the Lakers’ nine, outscoring them by 30 from beyond the arc.Combined with a bruising 41-point game from Russell Westbrook, who the Lakers couldn’t convincingly slow down, the small-ball assault was effective as the Rockets committed to it whole-heartedly.“It’s tough because you have to control Russ’ ability to get into the paint which he did a lot tonight, but also be able to control their perimeter shooting,” James said. “We didn’t do a very good job of both.”The Rockets were among the most active teams at the deadline, retooling to the extreme around a small-ball, shooting-forward philosophy by adding Robert Covington – who made his Houston debut with 14 points, eight rebounds and a pair of clutch 3-pointers in the final minutes – and shipping out center Clint Capela. Houston still has 7-footers Tyson Chandler and Isaiah Hartenstein on its roster, but neither played Thursday.The Lakers predictably attacked this with force in the post, throwing lob attempts to Davis, who muscled his way past 6-5 P.J. Tucker to lead the Lakers on the night. While he curled the ears of referees for hidden jostling that he believed were fouls underneath him in the post, Davis nevertheless found ways to finish. He sprained his right index finger shortly before halftime, but he returned to start the second half with a wrap on his hand. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions While Vogel said before the game that he meant to counter the Rockets with size, lineup mainstays JaVale McGee and Dwight Howard played just 20 combined minutes. With a roster that has emphasized size over switchability, the Lakers still must solve issues they’ve had against the league’s smaller, fleet-footed teams, which includes Boston and the Clippers.That doesn’t mean there was no whiff of change coming – a tantalizing possibility had a second-row seat in the Staples Center crowd. After a rumored backroom meeting, point guard Darren Collison showed up for the second half of the game two seats from owner Jeanie Buss, taking in the action.Multiple reports have said the 32-year-old, 6-foot point guard is mulling a return from retirement, which he entered abruptly this summer days before free agency opened. A former UCLA star who hails from Rancho Cucamonga, Collison has been linked with the Lakers and Clippers – but so far has not been spotted sitting next to Clippers ownership at a game. He was momentarily shown on the jumbotron to uproarious applause.Collison played for the Indiana Pacers last season, averaging 11.2 points and 6 assists per game while shooting 40.7 percent from 3-point range. The Lakers currently have a full 15-man roster and would need to drop a player to sign Collison or anyone else they might be interested in.Vogel and his players declined comment on Collison, who implied to ESPN his interest was merely innocent.“Just watching the game,” he said. “Ain’t nothing to it. Got the best seats in the house.”The bench has a pretty good view, too. Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs last_img read more

‘Say it ain’t so, ‘Joe’ Jackson’

first_imgA few years before the death of the “King of Pop” Michael Jackson, MJ revealed that he had been abused and beaten by his father, Joe Jackson. The media seized upon these revelations like piranhas closing in on a beef steer that had strayed into waters infested with these aquatic devourers of flesh. There is no excuse for Joe Jackson or any other human being abusing any child physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually but you know what? Joe Jackson’s boys and girls made it big and that in itself may act as a salve on the wounds suffered by his children who in time became arguably the most famous entertainment family in the world. Check this out; however unconventional and allegedly brutal Joe Jackson’s system might have been, there was a method to his madness and his children ended up profiting from the process that he put in place. However, in regards to the ongoing Penn State child abuse scandal a bunch of serious bull crap is spewing out of the mouths of the media. The children that were allegedly sexually abused by ex-PSU coach Jerry Sandusky did not profit on any level from his alleged lust for virgin flesh. A few folks are saying that the funeral of Joe Paterno re-launched and restored his tainted legacy. When I think of the word re-launch, my heart hurts and I can’t help but think of Jan. 28, 1986 when the space shuttle Challenger was launched. The spacecraft exploded shortly thereafter killing all who were on board. The events that transpired on that awful day can never be taken back. You cannot re-launch any vehicle once it has exited the launching pad. How dare these imbeciles imply that that the passing of Paterno automatically gives him “clean hands” in regards to the ongoing scandal. Most people say that Paterno should have “spilled” the beans in a more thorough way but in most states you do not have to be compelled to testify against your spouse. Joe Paterno was “married” to PSU football and he was not going to allow anything including the abuse of a few “have-nots” to threaten his legacy or his marriage to power and money. The accomplishments of Mr. Paterno have been lost in the shuffle of corruption.Did I mention a few of the theories originating from Jimmy Hoffa University or JHU in regards to the disappearance of former prosecutor Ray Gricar being mob influenced? Oops that is politically incorrect, can’t say “mob.” According to my sources; Mr. Gricar is now waiting in line to take over as the curator of MJ’s Neverland Ranch. Uh-huh and I say re-launch the legacy of the late coach Joe Paterno the day that Gricar calls his next press conference to tell us about his new gig.The Pro Bowl is a farce, joke and a spinoff of what professional football is supposed to be. Buyer beware. Take a close look because what you see might just be a preview of the form of play that may be the future of competition in the NFL. These guys may as well have been playing touch football with pads. Was that a football game that the world was watching or did the coaches borrow the playbook from a neighborhood pickup game? In the past I have been credentialed to cover the game and it has never been taken too seriously even by those like me who have traveled over 4660 miles just to sit in the press box. I personally went so I could travel throughout the islands “hanging ten” no, that does not mean riding the waves in Honolulu, but “hanging out” in the “Sun Room” which was my favorite (and cheapest) restaurant near the Hawaiian Hilton which was my place of residence while I was there. In the future, why not alternate the game between San Francisco, San Diego or Seattle in addition to Honolulu and play the game two weeks after the Super Bowl? Currently the game is a crock and there might be a new nickname if it continues as it is now. It will match the Super Bowl; in the future it may just well be called the “Stupid Bowl.”(Aubrey Bruce can be reached at: [email protected] or 412-583-6741. Bruce is also the NFL/AFC North analyst on the “Odd Couple Sports Show” streaming live on Fox Sports radio; WCWA 1230am, Toledo, Ohio, Wednesdays from 11-11:30 a.m.) I have never been happy about not going to a Super Bowl but this year is the exception. When I covered Super Bowl XL in Detroit I ended up with pneumonia. If they can only hold the “Lombardi Sweepstakes” in a city with a domed stadium then they should go one step farther and require that the entire city be “domed.” I am convinced that my illness was caused by running in and out of activities and venues during Super Bowl week that had extreme temperature variations from stifling hot to bitter cold. The Super Bowl should not be awarded to any city whose average low temp falls below 38 degrees Fahrenheit, domed stadium or not. It does not seem appropriate to be singing, “the weather outside is frightful but the ‘dome’ is so delightful but since I didn’t make All-Pro let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.” That’s not right, that’s just not right. last_img read more
