    Kawhi Leonard’s quest for another NBA ring with a third team begins Monday as the Los Angeles Clippers start their first-round series against the Dallas Mavericks. The Clippers were the second-best team in the Western Conference during the season and mostly because Leonard decided to join the Clippers in the offseason and convince the team to trade for Paul George, who came over from the Oklahoma City Thunder. For Los Angeles to have success and go far in the playoffs, it’s going to be a team effort. Leonard and George are just two players who can prove some scoring. It’s going to take the rest of the team to play defense against an upstart Mavericks team who boast players like...

    Damian Lillard gets all the attention, but CJ McCollum deserves some props for playing through injury McCollum often takes a back seat to the face of the Portland Trail Blazers, Lillard, and for good reason. The Weber State product in Lillard is one of the best point guards in the NBA, perhaps only taking a back seat to Steph Curry and a select few point-forwards who may fit the criteria for such a debate. Yet, it’s McCollum who provides the ideal Robin for Lillard’s Batman, allowing him the space necessary without facing constant double-teams from the other guard position. McCollum’s ability to keep opposing defenses honest, especially in primarily man-to-man systems, is vital to Portland’s success. CJ averages over 22...

    The Sacramento Kings are out of the playoff race, having lost five of the seven games that they played in the Orlando Bubble. They could register a win only twice, both coming against the New Orleans Pelicans. This made it appear as if they were only preparing to play the Pelicans all this while. It would be a gigantic task for them to upset the Los Angeles Lakers. So this game will mathematically change nothing for the Lakers. They’re fixed at the #1 spot. But a loss will definitely put a dent in their march towards the playoffs. On the other hand, it still holds tiny importance for the Kings because a loss will force them to slip further to...

    The husband of Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. Jackie Lacey has asked a judge to dismiss the criminal case against him on charges of waving a gun at Black Lives Matter protesters on his porch, arguing that the state’s attorney general exceeded his legal authority by filing misdemeanor charges.

Xavier Becerra decided that felony charges were not warranted for the March incident at the Laceys’ Granada Hills residence, the state’s top prosecutor should have transferred the case to L.A.

    A prominent evangelical church in Los Angeles is suing state and county officials in California after being threatened with fines and jail time for gathering together for indoor worship. Grace Community Church, which is pastored by prominent evangelical John MacArthur, made headlines last month when they resumed in-person assembly in defiance of Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s renewed lockdown order. MacArthur and the church retained the legal counsel of the Thomas More Society last week after receiving a cease and desist letter from Los Angeles County threatening $1,000 daily fines and imprisonment. In the complaint made public Thursday, lawyers for the church argue that state and county officials are violating six parts of the California State Constitution with their indefinite lockdown orders against houses...

As reported on Wednesday by USA Today, the Trail Blazers, who are a half-game ahead of the Memphis Grizzlies in the race for the final playoff spot in the West, have been seen by a number of NBA observers as the most likely team to secure eighth-seed status during this weekend’s play-in. Some of these pundits, as noted, are even predicting that Portland could potentially upset...
    Los Angeles County, California — a sanctuary jurisdiction — will not cooperate with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency, vowing to free all criminal illegal aliens into the United States. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office had already ceased most cooperation with ICE agents, freeing up to 100 illegal aliens every day into the community, according to Homeland Security officials. This week, Sheriff Alex Villanueva confirmed that Los Angeles County officials will now only honor ICE detainers on criminal illegal aliens after agents have gotten a judicial warrant signed by a judge. The maneuver allows Los Angeles County officials to absolve responsibility, even though ICE agents are not required to obtain judicial warrants for suspected criminal illegal aliens and judges...

Two months later, it reopened."People started slowly coming back," MacArthur told CNN on Tuesday, "and they just kept coming until there were six or seven thousand." That's several thousand more people than California allows at indoor worship services. According to an order issued July 29, houses of worship in Los Angeles County must limit indoor gatherings to 100 people or 25% of the building's capacity, whichever is lower. "I'm so...
