After 12 NBA seasons and with a firm reputation as a pure shooter, Clippers guard Jamal Crawford tried something during the off-season he had never done before. He practiced shooting. It's astonishing to think that Crawford, who is the NBA's career leader with 34 four-point plays and ranks 21st all-time with 1,387 three-pointers, didn't routinely spend his summers in stuffy gyms trying to perfect his shot. "I've never actually been drilled before. Seriously. I told Blake that, and he couldn't believe it," Crawford said of teammate Blake Griffin.

Security officers first tried to detain the man at the Target on South Alameda Street for “a crime allegedly committed at the store,” the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said late Sunday.

In the annals of Texas journalism, Robert Heard stands out for many things: a biting wit, a prolific career, a lawyer's understanding of lawmaking, a determination to get the story even at considerable personal risk. It was the last trait that catapulted him from news reporter to news figure on Aug. 1, 1966, when he was shot in the shoulder during Charles Whitman's bloody rampage from the top of the University of Texas Tower in Austin. Heard, a 36-year-old Associated Press reporter, had followed two highway patrol officers on a wild sprint across a parking lot, but he forgot his Marine's training to zigzag.

It's going to take a lucrative payment to nominate Obviously for the $2 million Breeders' Cup Mile next month at Santa Anita, but trainer Mike Mitchell and co-owners Anthony Fanticola and Joe Scardino are convinced the 4-year-old gelding has earned a shot based on his freakish-like performances in his last two races. Last month, Obviously set a course record for a mile on the turf at Del Mar in 1:32.10. On Saturday at Santa Anita, Obviously won the $150,000 Arroyo Seco Mile by a half-length over Trailblazer in 1:31.95, just six-hundreths of a second off the course record of 1:31.89.

 It was three years ago, in the 2010 Pac-5 Division semifinals, that Alemany gave unbeaten Servite perhaps its toughest game of the season. Servite prevailed, 28-21 , despite 153 yards rushing and 273 passing by Alemany quarterback Vernon Adams. Now the two teams are set to meet again in Friday's Pac-5 Division quarterfinals at Cerritos College. Both teams have quarterbacks capable of doing just what Adams did _ run and pass. Alemany has Alif Grayes. Servite has Travis Waller, who Alemany Coach Dean Herrington said, "He's RG3," referring to Robert Griffin III. The key to the game will be Alemany's defense.

SAN FRANCISCO -- The doors to the Lakers' shoot-around opened, and there was Dwight Howard working on a series of mid-range jumpers. From 14 feet. Sometimes 16. A few from 18 feet. "He can make those," Lakers Coach Mike D'Antoni said Monday morning, sounding hopeful. Improving his outside touch can only help Howard offensively. He has been a diminishing star late in games. He had no fourth-quarter shots in the Lakers' loss Friday to Washington and also none a week ago in their loss to Phoenix.

OAKLAND - Golden State's shots kept bouncing off the rim. Some nicked the front, others clanged off the side and still others caromed high off the back. It only seemed as though DeAndre Jordan was there to grab every rebound. The Clippers center repeatedly extended his massive hands to seize the ball, doing it for the final time with 1.2 seconds left Thursday night at Oracle Arena when he grasped Stephen Curry's airballed three-pointer, flung a pass to teammate Chris Paul and raised his arm in triumph.

The latest Albuquerque police officer to fatally shoot a suspect was caught in a lie three years ago during the case of another officer implicated in a deadly shooting, according to an attorney and sworn testimony. In 2011, Officer Jeremy Dear told a police investigator that he saw the suspect, Alan Gomez, holding a cigarette and standing in front of his house talking with police, according to federal court records. Gomez was a suspect in a hostage situation and was considered armed.

The number that matters most is not 500. The number that matters most is 0. That is the number of major league players that have hit more home runs this season than Albert Pujols. He got a mighty sweet serenade in the visiting clubhouse in Washington on Tuesday night after he hit his 500th home run. But the Angels are not paying him a quarter-billion dollars for reminders of how great he was when he played for the St. Louis Cardinals. INTERACTIVE: Compare salaries on Angels, Nationals If that really is the classic Pujols back at-bat, that would be a big swing toward an October different from the last two, when he and the Angels stayed home and the Pujols-less Cardinals advanced deep into the playoffs.
