(AP Photo/Mark J. Terrill)ExpandLOS ANGELES — The struggle was real Saturday at Staples Center. One night after playing one of their most complete games of the season in a victory over LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Clippers faced off against the lowly Orlando Magic and an inevitable letdown.There was no way the Clippers could top Friday’s showing Saturday.One good quarter was all they would need to subdue the Magic and secure a 113-105 victory and take a half-game lead over the idle Denver Nuggets and Utah Jazz in the increasingly compelling battle for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.In fact, by rallying from an 82-71 deficit in the third quarter to beat Orlando, the Clippers moved within a half-game of the seventh-place San Antonio Spurs and one game of the sixth-place Minnesota Timberwolves. Four games separate the third- and 10th-place teams in the West. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “Give Orlando credit. They’re out of the playoffs and they’re making you play hard.”The Clippers seemed determined to settle matters quickly, sinking their first four shots and bolting to a 10-0 lead over a Magic team that was mired in a tie for last place in the Southeast Division with a 20-46 record and had lost eight of 10 before arriving at Staples Center.As often happens when the Clippers score too easily, the opposition answers right back. The Magic got back into the game by the end of the first quarter and erased an 11-point deficit. By halftime, Orlando led 58-56, and there was much for the Clippers to clean up during the intermission.There was a sense or urgency to Saturday’s game, the last before the Clippers begin a stretch in which they play nine of 11 away from the cavernous confines of Staples Center. The Clippers conclude the regular season by playing five of their final six at home.Rivers started the same lineup he used during the Clippers’ victory over the Cavaliers on Friday: Harris and Sindarius Thornwell at the forward positions, Jordan at center and Williams and Austin Rivers at the guard spots. It worked well in a 116-102 win over the Cavs.It also was his 31st different starting lineup, tops in the NBA this season.“We didn’t get stops and we didn’t move the ball either,” Doc Rivers said of the Clippers’ early struggles against the Magic. “I think we had eight assists int he first half. We missed shots, but I just thought in the second half there was better ball movement. I thought we were more active on defense.“So, we won the game.”center_img The Clippers surged to a 101-92 lead early in the fourth quarter, seizing the game and making it theirs with a 30-10 run that left the Magic reeling. After trading baskets for most the game, the Clippers turned up their defensive pressure and converted that energy into sustained offense.Lou Williams scored 10 of his team-leading 25 points in the fourth quarter, continuing his excellence when it has mattered most this season. He went into the game averaging a league-leading 7.7 points in the fourth quarters of his games in 2017-18.Tobias Harris added 21 points, his fourth consecutive game with 20 or more. DeAndre Jordan scored nine points and grabbed 18 rebounds on night after he had 20 points and 23 rebounds against the Cavaliers for his ninth career 20-20 game.Jonathon Simmons led the Magic with 24 points.“Tonight was a struggle,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. “You could just see it. You come off the game last night and I just thought it was a mental struggle for us. We hung in their long enough to keep it close enough. In the fourth quarter, we got enough stops.last_img read more

first_imgAll things considered, though, is it the right move for the Chargers to join the Rams to play in Los Angeles?“I haven’t followed it closely enough, but I don’t think it is,” Walton said. “But I’m a Chargers fan that wants the team in San Diego. I have no idea what’s happening on the business side of it. But I obviously would have liked them to stay.” Chargers owner Dean Spanos had threatened a move in recent years amid unsuccessful attempts to receive taxpayer funds to build a new stadium. But despite the Chargers making only one Super Bowl appearance in 1994 and making one playoff appearance in the past five years, Walton embodied the San Diego sports that supported them through the good and the bad.“We had a loyal group of fans that were used to tough times of trying to win. But we stuck with our team,” Walton said. “They were a big part of growing up in San Diego.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error SAN ANTONIO >> The calm and stoic tone in which Luke Walton spoke masked his frustration.He often has reacted that way as he has experienced the Lakers going through some early hiccups. The Lakers’ coach shared the same mood over the San Diego Chargers announcing their intentions to relocate to Los Angeles for the 2017 NFL season. The San Diego native also does not plan to buy season tickets just because his hometown team plans to move where he lives. “I’m a little heartbroken over it right now,” Walton said following morning shootaround in preparation for Thursday’s game against the San Antonio Spurs at AT&T Center. “I’m not ready to deal with the reality they’re going to leave San Diego.”last_img read more
