Lakers’ Kentavious Caldwell-Pope finds 3-point shot

first_imgIn his past 30 games, Caldwell-Pope is averaging 14.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.4 steals per game while shooting 46.1 percent from 3. The league’s leader in 3-point percentage over the entire season is Indiana’s Darren Collison at 44.8 percent.Thursday marked the third time in his career that Caldwell-Pope buried eight 3s, including on Feb. 24, when he shot 8-of-14 in a win at Sacramento.Caldwell-Pope is shooting a career-high 39.6 percent from 3, up from his career average of 34.6 percent. He shot 35 percent from 3 last season with Detroit and said he is better this year because he is able to get “more repetition.”Too much to RandleBefore Thursday’s game got away from the Lakers in the final minutes, Julius Randle put together a sequence that perfectly embodies his on-court identity.It started with 4:47 left in the first quarter, when Randle blocked veteran Emeka Okafor’s dunk attempt, corralled the rebound and began pushing the ball the other way. In the open court, he crossed over Ian Clark, then blew by Jrue Holiday. By the time Randle got to the rim, Pelicans’ forward Nikola Mirotic didn’t even bother to contest the shot, and Randle dunked the ball with two hands.All of those elements transpired in less than five seconds.It was an exciting play, in one easily shareable video clip.“It shows what I keep telling him,” Coach Luke Walton said. “’You can be one of the best players in this league.’ … What he’s already grown into as a player, he’s still very young, it’s very impressive and the sky is the limit for him.”Randle finished with 23 points and 10 rebounds.He will be a restricted free agent this summer, although the Lakers can match any offer another team makes. He said Walton has been telling him he can be among the league’s best players “all this year.” And while his do-it-all series of plays was a distant memory by the time the Lakers had blown an 11-point lead to lose their fourth consecutive game, Randle was grateful for the vote of confidence from Walton.“I always take everything Coach says with honor and try not to let him down,” he said. “With me, I guess it shows both parts of my game that I try to take pride in. Defensive end and being able to push it and make a play for myself or others down the court.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error MEMPHIS – In the heat check world of the NBA’s most potent 3-point shooters, nothing gets the mercury rising faster than seeing the first shot from deep slice through the net.“I mean, some nights I know,” Kentavious Caldwell-Pope said after making eight 3-pointers Thursday against New Orleans. “Some nights it’s just the flow of the game. I took my first two shots (and they) went in. I took the third, went in.”Caldwell-Pope’s first 3 went in 78 seconds into the Lakers 128-125 loss to the Pelicans. In less than two minutes, he made two more, on his way to a blistering 8-for-11 night from beyond the arc and a team-high 28 points.“I just took what the game gave me,” Caldwell-Pope said. “On their defensive breakdowns, I was open so I just let it fly.”center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersHis big game came as Lonzo Ball endured an agonizing 1-for-12 night from 3-point range. According to basketball-reference.com, Ball became just the ninth player since 1983-84 to make just one 3-pointer on 12 or more attempts.Fortunately for the Lakers, Caldwell-Pope was there to balance things out, helping the Lakers shoot a 43.6 percent from 3 as a team.The veteran swingman in his fifth NBA season was signed for $18 million last summer on a one-year, make-good deal. It was seen at the time as a win-win, with the Lakers overpaying for the “3-and-D” wing player on a team-friendly contract.On the day he was introduced in L.A., General Manager Rob Pelinka likened landing the swingman to the “time when the Israelites were wandering in the desert and all of a sudden bread came down from heaven.” For much of the season, Caldwell-Pope failed to meet the hefty expectations of both his contract and, inevitably, the biblical comparison.But since his release from a detention center in mid-January, a 25-day sentence imposed by a Michigan judge after Caldwell-Pope violated the terms of his probation, the 25-year-old has been among the Lakers’ most consistent players.last_img read more

LONGSHOT SI SAGE GOES GATE TO WIRE TO WIN GRADE II, $200,000 CHARLES WHITTINGHAM STAKES BY 2 ½ LENGTHS UNDER SMITH; CASSIDY TRAINEE GETS 1 ¼ MILES ON TURF IN 1:59.48

first_imgTWO-DAY PICK SIX CARRYOVER INTO MONDAY OF $437,763; TOTAL PICK SIX POOL SHOULD APPROACH $2 MILLION ARCADIA, Calif. (May 29, 2016)–With Mike Smith at the controls, veteran Si Sage finally got a firm turf to run on and the 6-year-old French-bred did just that, as he seemingly relished a front-running trip en route to an authoritative 2 ½ length win in Sunday’s Grade II, $200,000 Charles Whittingham Stakes at Santa Anita. Trained by Jim Cassidy and owned by Jed Cohen’s Red Baron’s Barn, LLC, Rancho Temescal and Vayaconsuerte, Si Sage, who was off at 11-1 in a field of 10 three year olds and up, got a mile and a quarter on turf in 1:59.48.“I thought it was a pretty fast dog (with regard to him telling Smith to ‘walk the dog’ during pre-race instructions) as I watched,” quipped Cassidy. “In between being on the outside and going down the hill (immediately after the start), that 47 half made me think we might be in trouble.“If he didn’t impress anybody today, shame on them. He certainly impressed me. I don’t think there’s any problem with him, no matter the distance. He’s just a very honest horse. (Former trainer) Darrell Vienna told me when he retired that this is a very nice horse and he couldn’t have been more right…It brings tears to your eyes to win a race named after such a great man, Charlie Whittingham. It brought a tear to my eye.”In his third start off a roughly one year layoff, Si Sage paid $25.00, $11.80 and $9.40. In winning the Whittingham, he improved his overall mark to 26-5-6-2 and with the winner’s share of $120,000, he increased his earnings to $381,795.“Jim told me he was going to run a big race today,” said Smith. “He got carried out a little bit when we were crossing the dirt (shortly after the start) and we went a bit quicker than I wanted to go, but in doing so he was well within himself, was comfortable, very relaxed and sometimes you’ve just got to let a fast horse be fast.”Although Si Sage carved out what appeared to be a legitimate fractions of 23.15, 47.02, 1:11.23 and 1:35.36, no one made a serious move from behind, including 7-5 favorite Bal a Bali, who appeared to be perfectly positioned while second turning for home, but flattened out through the drive and could only manage a fourth place finish.Completing the Whittingham exacta was another French-bred, Patentar, who swung three-wide turning for home, overtook the favorite inside the sixteenth pole and outran Montego Bay for the place. Ridden by Alonso Quinonez, Patentar was off at 32-1 and paid $25.40 and $11.80.“I saved all the ground (early) and I decided ‘If I’m gonna win it, I’ve got to swing out and take a shot,’” said Quinonez. “I really happy with the way he ran.”Ridden by Drayden Van Dyke, Montego Bay finished third, 1 ¼ lengths in front of Bal a Bali. Off at 20-1, he paid $10.60 to show.There is a two-day Pick Six carryover into Memorial Day, Monday at Santa Anita of $437,763. The total Pick Six pool on Monday is expected to approach the $2 million mark.First post time for a 10-race card on Monday is at 2 p.m. The Pick Six will begin with the fifth race and approximate post time for race five is at 4 p.m. PDT.
