The Lakers’ list of early-season issues is long and growing. But in the game of Pick-A-Problem, none may be more pressing than the play of Jeremy Lin.

LOS ANGELES – For much of Friday night, Kobe Bryant looked like a younger version of himself. There was a baseline drive that resulted in a reverse dunk, and improbable hang time on an up-and-under layup.

LOS ANGELES – Arizona’s offense, with its multiple options on every play and head-spinning tempo, is meant to confuse and disorient. This could be a problem for UCLA’s defense, which has spent its share of this season looking confused and...
ARCADIA – California Chrome is ticked off.
He hasn’t won a race since May and he actually spent his summer on vacation instead of working like his competitors.
