The Sports Report: Lakers Are One Win Away From Advancing

Hello, I'm your host, Houston Mitchell. Let's go straight to the news.

By Dan Woike: Older engines take longer to warm up.

LeBron James and Anthony Davis, the Lakers' veterans who carry the biggest responsibilities and heaviest workloads, weren't good enough for the first 48 minutes.

Well, the first 47 minutes and 59.2 seconds.

With 0.8 of regulation time remaining, James made a high shot to speed up overtime, and with a minute added to set the previous four quarters, James and Davis took over, scoring the Lakers' first nine points, 117 -111. Grizzly.

James focused on the push to power it into overtime, screaming and bending through the crowd as victory was close at hand.

The Lakers will now travel to Memphis for Game 5 on Wednesday night, where they will have a chance to close out the series with a win.

James finished with 22 points and a career-high 20 rebounds. This was the Lakers' first 20/20 postseason game since Shaquille O'Neal in the 2004 NBA Finals.

Monday, when the Lakers' streak in the first round could be reversed, was mostly played outdoors. There were too many fouls, too many whistles, too many missed shots and too many mistakes for the game to make sense.

That means the Lakers and Grizzlies must win the most detailed moment in basketball — every shot, every dribble, every decision — in order to have as little momentum as possible during the game.

D'Angelo Russell provided one of those stretches, hitting three 3-pointers in record time in the fourth quarter to excite a nervous crowd. Austin Reeves does it sometimes, but so do Jarred Vanderbilt, Dennis Schroeder and Troy Brown Jr.

Even Reeves led the Lakers with 23 points, while Davis only 12 points.

By Andrew Greif: Clippers star Kawhi Leonard missed practice Monday after receiving treatment for a sprained right knee that kept him out of the team's final two games in the first round against the Phoenix Suns. coach Tyronne Luke said.

Asked if the treatment left the door open for a comeback Tuesday in Game 5 in Phoenix, Lou said "there's always a chance."

The Clippers later pulled Leonard from Game 5 on their overnight injury report.

Phoenix leads the seven-game series 3-1.

It wasn't until Game 3 that the Clippers admitted that Leonard had injured his knee in Game 1 of the series and aggravated it in Game 2. The Clippers lost Game 3 and Game 4 of the series on the road.

By Kevin Baxter: Kings coach Todd McLellan should learn from his team's loss Sunday in Game 4 of the first-round Stanley Cup playoffs against the Edmonton Oilers.

Most notable, of course, was not missing a three-goal lead at halftime. But this is not the only one.

"There's a number of things we've got to fix. And there's some things we've been working on," McLellan said Monday before the Kings left for Edmonton, where their best-of-four series continues Tuesday and both . the teams have also achieved two victories. Positive reinforcement of what happens when we do certain things works for us.

By Jack Harris: Mark Pryor is in his fourth season as Dodgers pitching coach, leading the team to almost unprecedented success in Mt.

For the past three seasons, the Dodgers have led teams in ERA, WHIP and Wins Above Replacement. And despite a slow start in Pryor's lineup this year (the team finished 18th on Monday with a 4.37 ERA in its first 23 games), the 42-year-old maintains a strong reputation, combining a sharp Sophisticated kick with an incredible presence. . .

"I think Mark is great and I really respect him," Dodgers ace and future Hall of Famer Clayton Kershaw said of Pryor late last year. "Sometimes it's not easy to convey a message to someone who doesn't want to listen. But [he would tell us], “Don't be soft. Or look at this person. Or you don't shoot. Or not. For example: "I understand that you are upset, but fix it." And I really respect that.

By Sarah Valenzuela: The Angels need to take advantage of this game to continue competing in this division and this league in 2023.

By Gary Klein: The Rams haven't acquired or retained a standout player in the past three months.

A team that finished last season 5-12 has done little to improve an injury-ravaged roster marred by poor performances and poor decisions.

But the Rams' tight end plan doesn't hold up for the NFL draft, at least in terms of numbers.

With 11 picks in the draft that begins Thursday in Kansas City, Missouri, they may be able to lean on their picks more than ever during coach Sean McVeigh's tenure.

For the seventh consecutive year, the Rams were not drafted in the first round. That streak will end in 2024 if McVeigh and general manager Les Snead break with Rams tradition and refrain from trading.

By Jeff Miller: Don't make fun of fake tires. On the other hand, Tom Telesco is involved in this.

The Chargers general manager estimates he just threw 25-30 pitches through various online simulations before the reality by Thursday night.

The Chargers had the 21st pick in Telesco's 11th draft as general manager. They also have a pick in each of the next six rounds.

In his more than a decade at the helm, Telesco has selected seven players who have combined to win 17 Pro Bowls. Three years ago, he made his most valuable pick yet: quarterback Justin Herbert.

Take a look at Telesco's history year by year:
