They should have a pretty good ‘every’ quarter,” Brooks said.Beal came in averaging a team-leading 23.7 points but he missed his first nine shots and had zero points at halftime. His first basket came with under 5½ minutes left in the third quarter.“They took a lot of my shots away. They doubled. They switched,” Beal said. “Their main objective was to take the ball out of my hands.”A lot of the credit goes to Thompson.“Klay did a really good job,” Kerr said. “We assign Klay with the most difficult job night after night.”ADVERTISEMENT It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson Asked for the secret to such success at the outset of the second half, Kerr couldn’t help but respond with a joke.“Mainly fiery halftime speeches from the coach — Knute Rockne style, ‘win one for (assistant) Ron Adams’ type speeches,” Kerr said with a chuckle. “No, it’s not about adjustments. It’s about our guys, I think, just wanting to make a push coming out of the break. I can’t really explain it other than throwing that at you.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkIn his team’s previous game, a win Monday at the New York Knicks, the Warriors held a 39-18 edge in the third quarter, the seventh time this season they outscored an opponent by at least 20 points.This time, it was 27-14.

Washington was playing on the second half of a back-to-back after winning at Milwaukee on Tuesday night, and a bit of lethargy showed early on while falling into a 16-point deficit in the second quarter.“We came out a little lackadaisical, a little sluggish,” Beal said.The Warriors, meanwhile, were well-rested after getting Tuesday off. They dispensed with the reigning NBA champs’ traditional White House visit while in town, opting to spend the day touring the National Museum of African American History and Culture with students from Durant’s nearby hometown of Seat Pleasant, Maryland.“We left it up to the players — what they decided to do, what they wanted to do.

NBC’s move to Universal City is a boon to real Hollywood

first_imgHooray for North Hollywood. Studio City, too. This slice of the southeast San Fernando Valley is expected to reap some of the benefits of NBC Universal’s recently announced plans to move from Burbank to Universal City. The Peacock will be shifting over its entire news operation along with “The Tonight Show,” which will be hosted by Conan O’Brien rather than Jay Leno by the time it all comes together. NBC plans to Move its West Coast headquarters into an $800 million complex near the MTA Red Line station, right across the street from Universal Studios theme park and the adjacent CityWalk attraction. Ackerman said he wouldn’t be surprised to see NBC Universal sell its Burbank property to another media or entertainment company that would build out the 34-acre site. And Jack Kyser, the chief economist for the Los Angeles County Development Corp., predicted that there will be a lot of interest in the NBC property because of the low vacancy rate in Burbank’s Media District – an area NBC helped create. “It’s sort of a poke in the eye for the city of Burbank” he said. “However, there would probably be a lot of interest in those (NBC) facilities – whether it be from a media company or (someone) just goes in and plows the site.” NBC’s new digs will be built and owned by Los Angeles-based Thomas Properties Group. The 315,000-square-foot studio with a 24-story postproduction office and another 24-story high-rise is slated for completion in 2011. A 34-story office tower or condominium hotel will be finished by 2015. With Universal’s back lot now slated for the construction of 2,937 condos and apartments on 130 acres, some are questioning whether it’s a good time to add more housing to the mix. “We have time for the market to have cycled out,” said Ayahlushim Hammond, a senior vice president at Thomas. “But our first preference is (completion of) a postproduction office. “That’s our first priority because it means more jobs for the larger area,” she said. “You need the jobs to go with the residential.” Officials estimate that the complex eventually could employ 3,200 people. My neighbor Manny, a truck driver at Universal Studios, summed up why it’s just common sense for NBC to move its West Coast operations a couple of miles down the road. “All we do is spend all day driving between the two places, hauling film and equipment,” he said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

That will give Red Line commuters a view into the studio, similar to the way fans can wave and gape at NBC’s “Today” show from Rockefeller Center in New York City. The new headquarters will give more credence to what local boosters have been saying for a long time: If you want to find the real Hollywood, come to the Southeast Valley. “It’s going to be the next evolution of what we’ve been saying for the last 10 years. This is where entertainment lives,” said Bruce Ackerman, president and chief executive officer of the Economic Alliance of the San Fernando Valley. At the same time, Ackerman conceded that the loss will have a huge impact on Burbank, where Johnny Carson moved his popular “The Tonight Show” in May 1972. “I hate to see any of our cities lose anything. But I love the fact that NBC is going to build out some incredible things for the San Fernando Valley,” he said. “Burbank is so synonymous with NBC and ‘The Tonight Show,’ it’s going to be an emotional loss as well as a physical loss.” last_img read more
