Warriors bested by Kings and other takeaways from weirdest loss since 2001

Click here if you’re unable to view the photo gallery on your mobile device. SAN FRANCISCO — Over the years, the Sacramento Kings have adopted little-brother status as they’ve looked to emulate the Warriors’ success. On Sunday, the big-brother Warriors (5-23) were bested by the Kings 100-79 at Chase Center. This was the Kings’ first visit to the $1.4 billion facility. In the third quarter, when a spirited “LET’S GO WARRIORS” chant broke out while Golden State was down by 20 points, a “SAC-RA-MEN-TO” chant from the upper-reaches of the arena drowned out the home crowd — a symbolic gesture of how overwhelmed the Warriors were by their northern neighbors. The Kings (12-14) shot 60.3% from the field, out-rebounded the Warriors by 12, and held the Warriors to a season-low tying point total (tied with Dec. 2 loss in Atlanta). Golden State committed 20 turnovers in the game and, despite forcing the Kings into 27 turnovers, still managed to lose by 21 points. “All kinds of mistakes,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “Very little communication. It was an embarrassing loss tonight.” A series of runs…

Boeing Considering Curbing Production of 737 Max Jet Involved in Deadly Crashes: Source

Boeing is considering curbing production of the troubled 737 Max and could announce the decision as soon as Monday after the US markets close, a source familiar with the decision-making process said. The company could either suspend production or further reduce the production level, the source said. “If they make the decision (to suspend) it’s just a temporary pause of the line,” the source said, adding that the production will eventually resume again. This comes after a meeting last week between the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Boeing in which the company said it came away understanding the 737 Max jet would not be cleared to fly this calendar year. The planes were grounded worldwide in March after two fatal crashes — a Lion Air jet into the Java Sea in October 2018 and an Ethiopian Airlines plane near Addis Ababa in March — killed 346 people. Also last week, Congress heard from a Boeing whistleblower who worked on the 737 Max and had urged managers to shut down the production line because of mistakes and cut corners. He said his recommendations fell on deaf ears. An…

Turnover-Plagued Chargers Routed by Vikings

Share this article:The Los Angeles Chargers committed seven turnovers the Minnesota Vikings converted into 20 points in a 39-10 loss Sunday, their most one-sided in Anthony Lynn’s three seasons as coach. “We’ve gotten beat, but we’ve never gotten beat like that and that was my problem today,” Lynn said after the Chargers’ most one-sided loss since a 33-3 loss at Kansas City Nov. 22, 2015, when Mike McCoy was the coach. “That’s my frustration right now. I haven’t seen that team in the three years since I’ve been here.” All the Chargers’ previous losses this season had been by seven points or less. The Chargers (5-9) allowed the final 30 points after Philip Rivers’ 2-yard touchdown pass to Mike Williams gave them a 10-9 lead eight minutes, 42 seconds before halftime. Rivers had three passes intercepted and lost a fumble when he was sacked by Danielle Hunter. Running back Austin Ekeler attempted to recover for the Chargers, but was pulled away by Minnesota linebacker Eric Kendricks, a former UCLA standout. Ifeadi Odenigbo recovered the loose ball and ran 56 yards down the sideline for a…
