Kershaw Shuts Down Defending Champs

Opening Day was something special in Los Angeles

The 30 year anniversary of Fernandomania. It was great seeing him throw out the first pitch.

Don Mattingly recorded his first career win as a manager and Clayton Kershaw was phenomenal in his Opening Day debut.

The defending World Series champs came into town and 2-time Cy Young Winner, Tim Lincecum, was on the mound.

That didn't matter to Kershaw. In the first inning, he struck out 3 of the 4 hitters he faced. (error by Furcal allowed a baserunner)

It was a pitching dueling throughout the entire game, until Buster Posey made a bad throw into left field trying to pick off Matt Kemp from third base. This allowed the Dodgers to take a 1-0 lead.

Kershaw went 7 innings and struck out 9 batters while only giving up 4 hits and a walk.

James Loney doubled in Matt Kemp in the bottom of the 8th inning to give the Dodgers a 2-0 lead.

I was worried when I saw that Broxton was going to come close out the game. James Loney made a nice play to retire Posey for the first out of the inning. Pat Burrell took Broxton yard and cut the lead down to 1.

But Broxton pulled it together and retired the next 2 hitters.

Clayton Kershaw got the win while Broxton recorded his first save of the season.

Here's what I noticed from today's game:
  • The Dodgers are aggressive, thanks to Davey Lopes.
  • Clayton Kershaw has a chance at 20 wins and could be in the Cy Young decision.
  • Matt Kemp is patient. He walked a career high 3 times.
  • Hong-Chih Kuo might have to step into the closer role.
  • Don Mattingly will be just fine as the manager.

Lakers Inch Closer To Spurs Despite Ejections

Statement Win!

Playoff Atmosphere!

Ejections on and off the court!

The Mavericks came into tonight's game only 0.5 games behind the Lakers for the 2nd seed in the Western Conference. 

It was a big game for both teams since the winner would hold the tiebreaker if both teams tied at the end of the season with the same record. Plus both teams can still catch the struggling San Antonio Spurs, who lost their 5th in a row today.

Lamar Odom took over in the 2nd half. He finished with 16 points and 11 rebounds.

Andrew Bynum had 18 points and 13 rebounds, while Kobe finished with 28 points.

Steve Blake, Matt Barnes and Shannon Brown were all ejected from tonight's game against the Dallas Mavericks. It all started when Jason Terry pushed Steve Blake to the floor after the refs blew their whistles. (Brendon Haywood & Jason Terry also ejected)

Here's the incident:

I love that Matt Barnes stepped up for Blake. It might lead to a suspension for Barnes and Terry, but we'll have to wait until the NBA makes a decision. It will probably come sometime tomorrow before the Lakers face the Utah Jazz.

Mike Trudell got Barnes response about what happened with one of the Mavericks assistant coaches:
Barnes said he didn't realize that it was a coach who was bear-hugging him from behind. Said he was trying to get hands off him.
Shannon Brown was ejected a couple minutes later because he felt the Mavericks made a hard play against Pau Gasol and the game was already out of hand.

It doesn't help that Joey Crawford was handing out technical fouls all night. Fisher, Dirk, and Barea all received technical fouls for arguing.

For those wondering what happened when securtity had to escort a fan from the arena during one of Lamar Odom's free throws....

Here is what Mike Bresnahan is saying about the situation:
Apparently it was a partially naked woman who tried to rush the Mavericks' bench after the initial altercation between Lakers + Mavs. Crazy.
Box Score: Lakers 110 Mavericks 82

Playoff Race Update:
8 games remaining in the season

Lakers are now just 2.5 games behind the San Antonio Spurs for 1st place in the Western Conference. Both teams play against each other on April 12th.

Mavericks are now 1.5 games behind the Lakers for 2nd place in the Western Conference.

      Chad Billingsley Signs 4-Year Contract

      From Yahoo:
      LOS ANGELES —Pitcher Chad Billingsley and the Los Angeles Dodgers agreed Tuesday to a four-year contract worth about $41.3 million that adds $35 million in guaranteed money over the final three seasons.
      Billingsley agreed in January to a one-year contract worth $6,275,000. The new deal gives him salaries of $9 million in 2012, $11 million in 2013 and $12 million in 2014. The Dodgers have a $14 million option for 2015 with a $3 million buyout.
      Great signing by the Dodgers.

      Billingsley has had a winning season every year he's been in the big leagues. Can't afford to let him go at such a young age. The Dodgers rotation is looking bright for years to come.

      Malcolm Lee To Enter NBA Draft

      ESPN reports: {Link}

      UCLA guard Malcolm Lee confirmed Tuesday that he has made himself eligible for the NBA draft but is reserving the right to withdraw by not hiring an agent. 
      Lee, a 6-foot-5, 200-pound junior, was UCLA's second-leading scorer last season with 13.1 points a game, and has until May 8 to decide if he wants to return to school and continue playing for the Bruins.
      The second day in a row that a UCLA Bruin has put their name into the NBA Draft. The difference is that Malcolm Lee is leaving the possibility of coming back to school by not hiring an agent.

      I don't think he's ready for the NBA right now.

      Tyler Honeycutt To Enter NBA Draft

      ESPN reports: {Link}
      UCLA forward Tyler Honeycutt is leaving school and will enter the NBA draft, he said Monday in a conference call with reporters.

      Honeycutt, a 6-foot-8 sophomore, averaged 12.8 points and 7.2 rebounds for the Bruins last season and is projected to be drafted late in the first round or early in the second round of the June 23 NBA draft, according to's Chad Ford.
      He should have a decent NBA career. It's worked out for almost all UCLA players that have been drafted. Only thing that concerns me is if there is an NBA lockout. I've heard that they are farther apart than the NFL, which means it's likely that the NBA will not have a season.

      Phil Jackson Replacement Candidates

      Brian Shaw or Jeff Van Gundy?

      From Marc Stein:
      The persistent word out of Lakerland is that Phil Jackson, at 65, is serious when he says that this will be his last season coaching Kobe Bryant. Far trickier is figuring out who sits at the front of the line to replace him.

      I heard again this week that the Lakers remain intrigued by the prospect of hiring Jeff Van Gundy.
      Read Stein's full report {Click Here}

      I really hope the Lakers don't go after Jeff Van Gundy. He knows how to win but I don't know if he can handle this team. I'm sure Kobe would be more comfortable with someone who has been on the staff for a couple of years.

      Brian Shaw is the guy for the Lakers. He's learned a lot from being Phil Jackson's sidekick. He already has the respect from current players and the playbook wouldn't have to change.

      Andrew Bynum Suspended 2 Games

      The NBA has finally suspended Andrew Bynum for his foul against Michael Beasley on March 18th.

      Andrew Bynum lowered his shoulder and didn't even attempt to block the ball as Beasley went up for a layup. Bynum received a Flagrant 2 foul and was ejected from the game.

      Mike Bresnahan reports
      Two-game suspension for Andrew Bynum. No game tonight for him (against Portland) and Tuesday (against Phoenix).

      UCLA Advance To Face Florida

      The young and inexperienced UCLA Bruins took it to the Michigan State Spartans, who were ranked #2 during preseason.

      Ben Howland prepared these guys for a battle and it wasn't pretty at times. The beginning of the game was very sluggish by both teams but the Bruins capitalized on a couple of turnovers.

      The Bruins took a 42-24 lead into the half. Tyler Honeycutt lead the Bruins with 9 points at the half.

      The 2nd half began with a run by the Spartans that cut the lead down to 12 points before the Bruins went on an 11-0 run.

      The Spartans hit a 3 pointer to make the score 77-76 UCLA with only 4.4 seconds left. There wasn't enough time for the Spartans to make the 23-point comeback.

      UCLA didn't finish strong but they managed to pull out the victory. They will face the #2 Florida Gators in the round of 32.

      Kobe Will Be Game-Time Decision

      Kobe will be game-time decision tonight against the Orlando Magic:
      EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- The Los Angeles Lakers received a scare Saturday night in Dallas, when Kobe Bryant landed awkwardly on his left ankle with 1:52 remaining in the third quarter, re-aggravating an injury suffered two games prior in Atlanta and sending him limping to the locker room for evaluation.

      He returned in the fourth quarter, but the injury, which he called a sprain, put his availability for Monday's game against the Orlando Magic at Staples Center in question.

      "He'll be a game-time decision. We hope he'll be able to play," coach Phil Jackson said.
       Read More....
      by Brian Kamenetzky (

      Hopefully this is not a serious injury that will affect Kobe come playoff time. I don't know how many more injuries he can play through. The Lakers need a healthy Kobe, if they want to win another championship.

      How Big Is Tonight's Game In Dallas?

      The Battle For Second In The West


      Dallas (47-18) is 1 1/2 games ahead of Los Angeles (46-20) for the second-best record in the West behind San Antonio. The Lakers/Mavericks only play each other 3 times this season which is a big deal since it creates a tiebreaker for playoff seeding.

      The Mavericks won the first meeting of the season 109-100 on January 19th.

      Next 2 Games against each other:
      March 12th - 6:00 p.m. Los Angeles Lakers @ Dallas Mavericks
      March 31st - 7:30 p.m. Dallas Mavericks @ Los Angeles Lakers

      Mavericks can clinch the tiebreaker and gain another game in the standings tonight with a win. There is only one month left in the regular season.

      The Lakers are just coming off of a loss against the Miami Heat. A loss that snapped their 8-game winning streak. I expect the Lakers to come out strong and show they can still beat top contenders.

      Jon Garland Likely To Miss A Month

      Jon Garland heads to the 15-day disabled list with a stained left oblique muscle.

      Tony Jackson from reports:
      GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Jon Garland said Thursday morning that while he continues to cling to a sliver of hope that he won't begin the season on the 15-day disabled list, the reality is that he probably will.
      Garland said an MRI exam he underwent on Wednesday showed that, as expected, he has a strained left oblique muscle.

      "I'm always going to hold to that hope [of avoiding the DL]," Garland said. "But the Vegas odds aren't looking too good right now."

      Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said after meeting with trainer Stan Conte that Garland will be shut down from any physical activity for the next four or five days, and that Conte didn't give him a firm timetable for when to expect Garland back.
      Not good news since Vicente Padilla who was going to be the spot starter this season was injured a few weeks ago. Now the fifth starter, Jon Garland will likely miss a month.

      John Ely or Tim Redding are possible candidates for the fifth spot in the rotation once the season starts.

      Kobe Passes Moses Malone For Sixth All-Time

      Kobe finished the game with 26 points and moved into the 6th spot on the all-time scoring list passing Moses Malone.

      For the second night in a row, Moses Malone is in the news. First Kevin Love breaks his double-double streak and now Kobe passes him for 6th place.

      It's very unlikely that Kobe passes Shaq for 5th this season.

      Here's the updated list of the scoring list:
      Kobe is currently at 27,423 points.

      He's passed a total of 6 players this season:
      Moses Malone
      Elvin Hayes
      Hakeem Olajuwon
      Oscar Robertson
      Dominique Wilkins

      Kevin Love Breaks Malone's Double-Double Record

      Great day for Bruins fans. Today Kevin Love put his name into the NBA record book.
      Love had 23 points and 17 rebounds for Minnesota. He posted his 51st double-double in a row, which is tied with Moses Malone in 1978-79 for the longest streak since the NBA-ABA merger in 1976. Malone had his streak over two seasons, so Love's is the longest single-season streak. {Link}

      Back in October, I predicted that Kevin Love would win the Most Improved Player award. I would have to say that he's the leading candidate to win the award after his amazing season so far. {Link}

      UCLA Finish Regular Season In 2nd Place

      The UCLA Bruins rebounded nicely after a disappointing 2009-10 season. The Bruins finished (14-18) last season and didn't make the March Madness Tournament for the first time since 2004.

      They finished the regular season (22-9) and will be the #2 seed in the Pac-10 tournament beginning on Wednesday, March 9th.

      A loss to Washington on Thursday cost the Bruins a chance at the regular season championship. Earlier today, the Bruins came back from a 13 point deficit to defeat the Washington State Cougars for the 14th straight time.

      Dodgers & MetroLink Team Up Again For 2011 Season

       Just announced:
       Metrolink to offer shuttle service again from Union Station to Dodger Stadium in 2011
      Metro will again offer Dodger Stadium Express bus service from Union Station in downtown Los Angeles to Dodger Stadium beginning March 28 with the Dodgers pre-game series and throughout the regular 2011 baseball season under a grant approved by the Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee (MSRC).
      A grant of $450,000 awarded to Metro by the MSRC was made in support of clean fuel transit service to link Union Station to Dodger Stadium. The MSRC awards funding within the South Coast Air Basin from a portion of the vehicle registration fee set aside for mobile source projects that result in emission reductions.

      "Following last year's successful launch, Metro is pleased to offer fans the Dodger Stadium Express bus service, which provides a direct link to Dodger Stadium from a vast network of trains and buses coming into Union Station," said LA County Supervisor and Metro Board Chairman Don Knabe. "We encourage fans to take advantage of public transportation throughout the season to save time and money."

      Great news because I plan on using this service this year. I don't want to be spending $15 a game just for parking. That's more than what my ticket cost!

      Devin Ebanks Expected To Miss a Minimum 3 Weeks

      As Matt Barnes returns to the team today, Devin Ebanks goes down and will likely miss a couple of weeks.

      Mike Trudell, @LakersReporter tweeted:
      Lakers rookie Devin Ebanks has been diagnosed with a stress fracture of the left tibia. He'll miss a minimum of 3 weeks.
      I know he doesn't play much unless the game is out of hand, but it sucks to see a rookie forced to miss action due to an injury.

      I wish Ebanks a healthy and speedy recovery.

      Matt Barnes Expected To Play Tomorrow

      Matt Barnes participated in practice today and Vic The Brick is reporting:
      Matt Barnes will suit up tomorrow for the Lakers when they take on the Bobcats.
      This only makes the Lakers better. I felt that the bench stopped producing the way they did at the beginning of the season when Barnes went down with his leg injury.

      Lakers are 5-8 against the Charlotte Bobcats. The Bobcats handed the Lakers their worst loss of the season last time they played.
