Clippers fend off Mavericks after Porzingis ejection in Game 1

first_imgThe Clippers surely weren’t just happy to be there, but they sure were happy to be there — appreciative of the chance to take the first step in pursuit of the franchise’s first championship, and to do it together, with a full lineup for just the 12th time all season.“There was a time during the pandemic when we thought this would not happen … we’re just very happy to be playing a playoff game,” Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said before the Clippers managed to fend off the Dallas Mavericks 118-110 on Monday in their Western Conference first-round series-opening “home game” at Walt Disney World Resort.L.A. fans showed up digitally around the court, team owner Steve Ballmer, masked up, was shown sitting somewhere in the arena, and red and blue spotlights shone during breaks in the action.PreviousOfficials separate the Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Clippers after the teams get into a scuffle during Game 1 of an NBA basketball first-round playoff series, Monday, Aug. 17, 2020, in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

(Kim Klement/Pool Photo via AP)ExpandThe most comforting thought of all for the Clippers, who now are 11-1 with a fully stocked roster: In their first playoff action for the team, the superstar tandem of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George scored 29 and 27 points, respectively, to lead the way. They steadied the somewhat disjointed Clippers, holding off the spirited Mavs and their young star running the point, Luka Doncic, as Dallas kept fighting after Kristaps Porziņģis was ejected early in the third quarter. Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory Game 4 photos: Luka Doncic, Mavs shock Clippers in overtime Marcus Morris Sr., the gritty forward whom the Clippers had long coveted and finally acquired midseason, was a big part of the win, too, chipping in with 19 points on 8-for-13 shooting, including making 3 of his 6 3-point attempts. He also collected six rebounds and four steals — en route to a team-best plus-25 in the box score.“He was solid. He was patient,” Rivers said. “He kind of let the game come to him. I didn’t think a lot of our guys did that tonight. I thought we were trying to force action instead of letting the game come to us.”He also was involved in one of the game’s key sequences, when Doncic (42 points on 13-of-21 shooting) took offense when Morris fouled him on his way to the hoop, and their conversation led to an exchange of shoves, which drew technical fouls for both Morris and Porzingis — who’d already been assessed one in the first half for swinging his arm in protest of a foul call.And so, to the dismay of those involved in the game and those watching and tweeting about it, the agile 7-foot-3 Latvian was ejected from his first NBA playoff game with 9:10 left in the third quarter and the Mavericks leading 71-66.Afterward, the officials said Porzingis’ first technical violated the league’s “respect for the game guidelines” and that the second was called because he escalated the confrontation. What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 Clippers’ Paul George: ‘If I make shots, this series could be a little different’ “Of course it’s unfortunate, the game could’ve went a different direction maybe,” said Porzingis, who logged 14 points, six rebounds, an assist and a block in 20 minutes.“It’s weird, I went through all kinds of scenarios, what would happen in a game, how they were gonna play us, things I shouldn’t do or how I should react — but this was one scenario I didn’t think through, that I might get a tech and don’t get the second tech. It’s a weird situation, but I guarantee it won’t happen to me again.”Still, the Mavericks pushed the Clippers throughout, but L.A. finally started closing the door the door when Patrick Beverley buried a corner 3-pointer to make it 106-100 with three minutes to go.Doncic spun in for a layup that pulled the Mavericks within four points but then Morris buried a 3-pointer to grow the lead to 109-102 — eliciting a demonstrative fist pump and scream from the typically stoic Leonard.Doncic scored again to keep Dallas within striking distance, but then George slammed the door and bolted it with another 3-pointer to make it 114-106 with 42 seconds left.Montrezl Harrell started to get acclimated in his first NBA action in 160 days, after spending an entire week quarantining alone in his hotel room upon his return to the bubble. He played 15 minutes and had six points and two rebounds. His first bucket came late in the third quarter, when he backed down the smaller Seth Curry, scoring over Rivers’ son-in-law.“I asked him how his wind was,” Rivers said. “He said, ‘my wind is great, I just can’t think out there right now, I haven’t played.’ He said, ‘I keep running to the wrong spot.’“I think that’s probably from just not playing basketball.”Leonard, the two-time NBA Finals MVP, shot 11 for 21 and added 12 rebounds, six assist and three steals to the victory. Ivica Zubac notched his second career playoff double double, finishing with 10 points and 10 rebounds in 22 minutes.Dallas’ halftime lead, 69-66, didn’t begin to tell the story of how turbulent the opening 24 minutes were.The Clippers delivered the proverbial first punch, jumping ahead 18-2. In that opening stretch, absolutely nightmarish for the Mavericks, Doncic left the court to have his left ankle re-wrapped, a potentially catastrophic sign for the Mavericks. But that passed, and the 20-year-old Slovenian star returned to score 19 points and grab six rebounds in the first half, in the face of fierce Clippers defense, which also forced him into seven first-half turnovers.Doncic also helped spur the 48-18 run that changed the tenor of the game — until the Clippers retaliated with a 19-7 run of their own.George and Leonard combined to score 30 of the Clippers’ first-half points.Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

‘An incredible year’: Guardiola hails City’s history boys

first_imgManchester City win domestic treble. PHOTO via @ManCityLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Pep Guardiola saluted Manchester City’s history makers after they clinched the domestic treble with a swaggering 6-0 rout of Watford in the FA Cup final on Saturday.Guardiola’s side capped an incredible campaign in fittingly dynamic fashion as Watford were put to the sword by Raheem Sterling’s hat-trick and goals from David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne and Gabriel Jesus.Just a week after winning a second successive Premier League crown, City’s record-equalling FA Cup final victory made them the first English club to win the English title, FA Cup and League Cup in the same season.They are the first English top-flight side to register 50 wins in all competitions in a single season.Guardiola’s men also scored a record 169 goals in 61 games this season, beating their own previous best of 156.City now rank high on the list of the greatest English teams of all-time and Guardiola admitted it was remarkable to watch his side scale such heights.“It was an incredible final for us and we have finished an incredible year. To all the people at the club a big congratulations, especially the players because they are the reason why we have won these titles,” he told the BBC.Although City finished as emphatic winners, the final could have been different if Watford had capitalised on a lively opening at Wembley.Crucially, the Hornets wasted a golden chance in the 11th minute when Roberto Pereyra ran clear, only to see his shot saved by Ederson.Guardiola agreed that Ederson’s save was a turning point. “In the final these kind of things make the difference. Ederson saved us at a key point at the beginning of the game, because 1-0 would have been really difficult for us,” he said.City have now lifted five of the past major six domestic trophies available.As Guardiola watched his player cavort joyously around the pitch after the final whistle, the Spaniard was asked if City could top their astonishing run over the last two years.Guardiola admitted last week that he is addicted to winning and, ominously for City’s rivals, he made it clear he expects his stars to be even better next term.“We have to, always you can improve. There is no sense to stay still,” he said.City captain Vincent Kompany was quick to pay tribute to Guardiola for his ability to hold his squad to a high standard.“It starts with the manager, who set the standard at the start of the season and said we had to go back-to-back (as title winners), and then it’s the group,” Kompany said“It’s the best team in the world. To set such a high standard for such a long period, for two years running. What a team, what a privilege!”Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Amelia’s win sets her on course for title defence

first_img9 Apr 2018 Amelia’s win sets her on course for title defence England girl international Amelia Williamson took the first step in a title defence when she won the Hampshire Rose by a stroke.She was three-under par for the 36 holes at a very wet North Hants Golf Club, adding her name to a trophy which has previously been held by top professionals Charley Hull and Georgia Hall.Next step for the 17-year-old from Royal Cromer, Norfolk, is the Roehampton Gold Cup on Saturday. It’s paired with the Hampshire Rose to create a 72-hole event, offering world ranking points for the players and the overall winner receives the Gold Rose Trophy.Williamson became the first winner of the combined event last year and has her sights set on retaining the trophy, which was given by Olympic champion Justin Rose.The weather omens are encouraging. “I’ve looked at the forecast for Saturday and it’s wet,” said Williamson, who managed similar conditions at North Hants in style.“There were only five or six holes when you didn’t need waterproofs,” she said. “But I always gave myself chances to make par and holed out well from under 10ft.”She was two-under 70 in the morning, followed by one-under 71 in the afternoon and finished a shot ahead of Kath O’Connor (West Byfleet, 68 74). Two more members of the England Golf girls’ squad filled the next two places: Martha Lewis (St George’s Hill, 72 71) and Lily May Humphreys (Stoke by Nayland, 71 74).
