A Los Angeles Police Department volunteer is on the mend and recovering in the hospital after he was attacked by a swarm of bees in Encino Monday. The volunteer identified only as “Gary” was stung anywhere from 50-100 times as he tried to help with traffic control in a residential neighborhood that was actively being terrorized by a swarm of aggressive bees. Gary is an Air Force veteran who has been an LAPD volunteer for nearly 18 years. The terrifying attack happened around 5 p.m. on the 17100 block of West Adlon Road. “It was gut-wrenching,” said his son, Daniel, who watched the events unfold on live TV. “I couldn’t even believe it. It looked so painful. It’s easy to criticize after the fact, but at the time, I’m sure everyone was doing the best they can or was not sure what to do, but it was just horrible. I was yelling at the screen going, ‘Why aren’t people helping? This is ridiculous. Go out, please help.’” The Los Angeles Fire Department responded to the scene for a report of a swarm of bees that had

So, what similarities does he see between LeBron James and Nikola Jokic? “I feel like the only difference is Bron can jump higher than Jokic,” Caldwell-Pope declared after Jokic’s monster performance fueled the Nuggets’ 132-126 win in Game 1 Tuesday night. “That’s really offensive,” Jokic replied in faux indignation about his athletic abilities. “I’m joking. I mean, to be compared to one of the best ever — or THE best ever — I think is really cool.” Jokic doesn’t really see many similarities in their play: “We affect the game in different ways,” Jokic said. “But he’s a really good player.” Nobody was better than Jokic on Tuesday night. Jokic recorded his sixth triple-double of these playoffs with 34 points, 21 rebounds and 14 assists, powering the Nuggets to a 1-0 lead in the series. Behind Jokic’s sizzling start and strong finish, and Jamal Murray’s 31 points while battling an ear infection, Denver beat
