Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers LeBRON STRESSES IMPORTANCE OF VOTINGAmericans surged to the polls on Tuesday, and the NBA was among the sports leagues that spearheaded a Get Out The Vote campaign with a video of NBA stars talking about the importance of voting.James also said it was important to vote, but he didn’t have to go down the street to do it. James told reporters he’s still registered in Ohio.“That’s where I’m from,” he said. “That’s where I live and that’s home for me.”James has been politically outspoken for several years, a genesis he traces to the shooting of Trayvon Martin in 2012 when he played for the Miami Heat. Since then, he’s endorsed a number of political candidates, including Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. He’s also feuded with President Donald Trump over video and social media channels.Last month, James wore a campaign hat for Beto O’Rourke, a Democratic candidate for senator in Texas, to a game in San Antonio. While he declined to delve deeper into candidates he supports in the midterm election cycle this year, he said he hoped people would vote.“It’s very important,” he said. “We always talk about we want change and then we get to this point and a lot of people don’t register and a lot of people don’t vote. But if we want change we have to have our voices and our boxes be checked for who we believe can make change. So, I’ve been pretty outspoken about it for quite a long time.”MOVING ON FROM RAPTORS LOSSAfter most games, the Lakers review the film as a team in the next practice. Not so with the 121-107 loss Sunday to the Toronto Raptors.“We toss it in the trash and move forward,” Walton said. “Our transition defense was terrible, offensively we weren’t running to our spots, spacing was off. We weren’t making the extra pass. Defensively, we were letting, on our individual defense we were letting blow-bys happen. We were late on rotations. It was an all-around just sloppy game to watch.”Related Articles Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions EL SEGUNDO — Since the season began, it’s been obvious that the Lakers needed to bolster their frontcourt.The team took what it hopes will be a big step in the right direction on Tuesday afternoon, signing veteran center Tyson Chandler after he was bought out by the Phoenix Suns and cleared waivers. At 7-foot-1, Chandler is expected to fill an immediate need at backup center behind JaVale McGee.General Manager Rob Pelinka said in a statement that he, team president Magic Johnson and Coach Luke Walton had discussed adding rebounding and rim protection after watching the first 10 games of the season.“In Tyson Chandler, we addressed that need, and so much more,” he said. “We are excited that Tyson will bring championship-level experience to our Lakers team that will solidify our veteran leadership and help positively shape our young core. We are thrilled for Tyson to join us as we progress towards our ultimate goals as a team.” How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersChandler could join the team as early as Wednesday, pending a physical. ESPN reported that Chandler will be earning $2.1 million from the Lakers after the Suns bought out the remainder of his allotted $13.6 million salary for this season.Chandler, 36, is now the oldest Lakers player, as well as the most experienced. In his 18th NBA season, he’s made one All-Star team and has won one championship, helping the Mavericks defeat LeBron James’ Miami Heat team in 2011. Chandler also played for several incarnations of Team USA. Chandler made three All-Defense teams between 2011 and 2013, and was the NBA Defensive Player of the Year in 2012.While he’s at the tail end of his career, the Lakers believe Chandler could be invigorated by a larger role on a more competitive team, and they value his presence in the locker room.“We love the fact that we’re going to get another veteran,” James said over the weekend of Chandler. “A guy who plays hard, a guy who’s very smart and another champion to add to the champions that we have in this system here today, so and it adds depth in our frontcourt.”Chandler is an L.A. native who played at Dominguez High in Compton. He was twice named Mr. Basketball in California and was drafted No. 2 overall by the Clippers in 2001, but he never played for them after he and Brian Skinner were traded to the Chicago Bulls for Elton Brand. Walton said Tuesday’s practice was more physically taxing than normal, and the Lakers focused on running back in transition, which is foundational for all their defensive schemes.The Lakers are also focused on rebounding, which was an issue the last time the team played Minnesota. The Timberwolves had 20 offensive rebounds last week when they beat the Lakers. In the rematch on Wednesday at Staples Center, the players were resolute that they don’t want to get beat on the boards.“It’s about want to get the rebound,” James said. “Understanding that (when) we rebound, we are very good and we are going to do that.” Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
Photo by: GRANT MATTHEW/STUFF (Charlie Ngatai went down against the Brumbies). An ankle injury suffered in the 28-10 final-round win over the Brumbies in Hamilton last Saturday night kept the 26-year-old from travelling with the team, coach Dave Rennie revealed from South Africa on Tuesday evening.Ngatai went down early in the match, and while he played on, he was then pulled at halftime as a precaution, but in the end wasn’t taken on the long haul, with Rennie seeing it as too much of a gamble.”His ankle just wasn’t good enough,” Rennie said. We’re not in a position to take a risk, you’re only allowed to bring 25 guys away, so it gives us a couple of spare guys but we needed to make sure that if we got any illness or injury late in the week, that we had suitable cover.”With Alex Nankivell – who started at centre last weekend – not selected in the travelling party, the midfield will feature either Stephen Donald or Tim Nanai-Williams – having arrived a day later than his team-mates following his commitments with Samoa – partnering Anton Lienert-Brown, with Solomon Alaimalo providing cover from the wing.Dominic Bird (concussion) and Liam Messam (hamstring) weren’t risked last weekend, but are good to go, while the All Blacks trio of Brodie Retallick, Sam Cane and Lienert-Brown will be injected after a week off following a heavy workload in the test series against the British and Irish Lions.Rennie said it was quite noticeable that that trio were fizzing with energy during what duties they have undertaken so far.With a similar climate to back home there hasn’t been any challenges in terms of getting acclimatised to the weather, but it’s just overcoming the travel factor which is imperative and has the Chiefs easing into their week.”We haven’t done an enormous amount, to be honest,” Rennie said. “We left at 2am [Sunday, NZ time] and most guys probably only had an hour’s sleep prior to that and of course a big day of travel, and we arrived here around midnight Sunday night, local time [late morning Monday, NZ time].The fact the Chiefs had to trek the 11,765km to the Cape for this game is not so much the worry in terms of their title chances – they go into the fixture as favourites – it’s more the fact that if they make the semifinals it’s guaranteed to be all the way back in New Zealand – either against the Crusaders in Christchurch, or against the Highlanders in Dunedin.It mirrors the task they faced last year, when they went over and spanked the Stormers 60-21, before coming up well short against the eventual title-winning Hurricanes 25-9 in Wellington.Rennie noted that was somewhat of an anomaly – against what was a high quality side – and that his team had generally fronted well on return from South Africa, so they were just embracing the excitement that the challenge presents.Of course, it’ll be first things first anyway, against what is a quite improved Stormers side this year, who beat the Chiefs 34-26 in Cape Town in round seven, in what was one of the season’s highest quality games.”Maybe last year they were surprised with the intensity of the game,” Rennie said. “And they hadn’t played a New Zealand side all year. This year they’ve played five, and they were certainly far better prepared, a hell of a lot fitter, and fronted big time against us. So we’re pretty sure what we’re going to face, certainly they’ll be physical and they’ll back themselves.”The Stormers will also be buoyed by some good news on the injury front, with fullback SP Marais and flanker Kobus van Dyk both back in the mix after missing the last couple of games with knee injuries, prop Wilco Louw (knee) and flanker Rynhardt Elstadt (wrist) both having recovered after being late-in-the-week withdrawals from the team which beat the Bulls in Pretoria 41-33 last weekend, and props Oli Kebble (hamstring) and Ali Vermaak (calf) both available for the first time since the international break.
