Set times for the 2014 Stagecoach Country Music Festival have been released by promoter Goldenvoice, which means festival-goers can now start figuring out whether to bypass newcomer Easton Corbin on Friday afternoon to catch Lynyrd Skynyrd playing at roughly the same time across the grounds at the Palomino Stage. Or if they'll have to sacrifice “American Pie” singer-songwriter Don McLean as the sun sets on Saturday to take in Pistol Annies member Ashley Monroe's performance at that same part of the day. One of the most impressive stretches of the entire weekend kicks in Sunday afternoon on the Palomino Stage, starting just before 3 p.m. when rising Americana duo Shovels & Rope performs, followed by “Twang Guitar King” Duane Eddy at 3:50 p.m., then veteran rockabilly singer Wanda Jackson at 4:55 p.m., country-rock pioneer (and part-time Monkee)

Almost everyone who knows Kings defenseman Drew Doughty realizes - quite quickly - that he wants to be on the ice as much as possible. In fact, Doughty was often after Kings Coach Darryl Sutter to use him in shootouts during the regular season. Doughty had another message after Tuesday's morning skate, several hours before Game 3 of the Kings' first-round playoff series against San Jose at Staples Center. More ice time.

Having two days off to rest before the Clippers play another playoff game against the Golden State Warriors is a good thing for injured L.A. guard Chris Paul. Paul has been dealing with a right hamstring injury that first occurred in the second quarter of Game 1 of the Western Conference playoff series between the Clippers and Warriors. The Clippers don't play Game 3 of the best-of-seven series that's tied at 1-1 until Thursday night in Oakland. “He needs it, because I think he's doing everything he can with it, to be honest,” Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said about Paul.

This post has been updated, as indicated below. The revolutionary Fan TV set-top box and viewer guide will soon be available to Time Warner Cable customers across the country, marking the first formal roll-out of a product that delivers a combination of live TV, pay-TV services and online video on demand through a minimalist receiver.

Do you own a smartphone? If so, you are a target for opportunistic thieves. Robberies and thefts involving smartphones are now the most common property crimes in America. The black market for these stolen devices has become so lucrative that even Colombian drug cartels now traffic in them. According to a survey by Consumer Reports, some 3.1 million Americans were victims of smartphone theft last year, nearly double the number in 2012. Los Angeles has experienced a more than a 30% increase in smartphone theft since 2011.

Gregg Popovich has become just the third person ever to be named the NBA coach of the year three times. Popovich, who coached the San Antonio Spurs to a league-best 62-20 record, joins Don Nelson and Pat Riley in that elite group. He also won the honor in 2003 and 2012. The Spurs have won at least 50 games in 16 of Popovich's 18 seasons at the helm, including the last 15 straight. Phoenix's Jeff Hornacek was runner-up in the voting and Chicago's Tom Thibodeau finished third.

DETROIT - Mike Trout was 20 and Bryce Harper was 19 when they played for the Scottsdale Scorpions in the Arizona Fall League in 2011. Neither had set foot in the big leagues by then, but it was clear to Angels catcher Hank Conger, a Scorpions teammate, that both outfielders were destined for greatness. "It was one of those things where you see them, you know they're young, and you know they're really good," Conger said before a 2-1 loss Sunday to the Detroit Tigers in Comerica Park.
