Los Angeles: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Avery Bradley, Danilo Gallinari, Tobias Harris, Boban Marjanovic. KEY MATCHUP Kawhi Leonard/Tobias Harris There is a lot of hype around Leonard this season, and for good reason. He leads the Raptors with 26.1 points and 8.3 rebounds a night and seems to be improving with every game after last year’s near season-long injury drama. There is less hype around the man leading the Clippers, a team without an all-star anchor, in Harris.

After Canelo fell out, Gennady Golovkin picks up Martirosyan LOS ANGELES — Gennady Golovkin spent several months planning and training for this weekend. He intended to spend it under Las Vegas’ brightest lights as he proved his middleweight supremacy in a lucrative rematch with Canelo Alvarez. Instead, Golovkin finds himself back in his adopted home in Southern California, where he’s making a fraction of that potential payday to fight a gritty veteran contender with nothing to lose in a famous outdoor ring where crazy things happen regularly. Sure, it’s not the Cinco de Mayo that Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs) had in mind. The 160-pound Kazakh middleweight kingpin is still determined to make the most of the holiday when he takes on Vanes Martirosyan (36-3-1, 21 KOs) on Saturday night on HBO. With a victory in a fight he didn’t have to take, Golovkin would tie Bernard Hopkins’ middleweight record with his 20th consecutive … [Read more...] about After Canelo fell out, Gennady Golovkin picks up Martirosyan
Every winter, US food writers compile their predictions for food trends in the coming year – and every year at least a few of those lists mention Filipino food. Without fail, the ways are enumerated in which it might be considered the perfect cuisine: the Philippines’ unique attributes as a culinary melting pot of Spanish, American and Chinese influences; the country’s access to abundant tropical ingredients; its ability to present exciting new flavors — ginataang langka! — alongside universally-loved comfort foods such as adobo and fried pork. Finally, they announce – the scribes – that thanks to a few young hotshot chefs and a growing interest in “international” foods, the Philippines’ time has finally come. And then, inevitably, they forget all about Filipino food, until next year.

For many years, Highland Park in Los Angeles was a relatively unknown and quiet residential part of town. The past few years, however, tell a different story: 20- and 30-somethings, lured by the neighborhood’s affordable rents and proximity to downtown Los Angeles, have moved in and are giving local entrepreneurs the incentive to open restaurants, bars and fashionable boutiques. Much of the rebirth is happening on Figueroa St., now a vibrant thoroughfare full of pedestrians. Highland Park BowlA bar, restaurant and bowling alley all in one space: Originally a popular bowling alley dating back to 1927, this sprawling space was a punk rock music venue until a local hospitality company, 1933 Group, took it over and restored it to its former glory with the original bowling lanes, candy machines and placards.
