Blake Griffin sits out Clippers' game in Brooklyn to restBy Kelly Sanders Dec 01, 2016
Over the next 22 minutes, the lid was removed.
They saw the Nets have their first solid defensive outing in weeks, holding the Clippers to 42.2 percent shooting.
The Los Angeles Clippers and Brooklyn Nets, of all teams, came together for one of the more exciting games of the NBA's young season.
Benjamin Franklin once said, "If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail". "Honestly, I think you guys know why the tech was called. At that point there was no turning back for me". The flagrant foul resulted in Barnes' ejection and briefly got the Nets to within single digits.
Rivers' craziness came during the first overtime. "At all. I feel like we took that for granted and felt like we were a lot better than we really are". "But, I think a lack of concentration is also a factor".
In the last meeting in Brooklyn on March 13, Antetokounmpo had a triple-double of 28 points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds in a 109-100 win. The same mental fortitude required in the highest-pressure situations is the same discipline required to shrug and run down to the other end of the court when a call doesn't go your way. "He made some big plays down the stretch".
Los Angeles had lost in Detroit and in in its last two games, managing just 70 points Sunday against the Pacers in its lowest-scoring game in 13 years.
A driving layup by rookie Isaiah Whitehead with 47 seconds remaining snapped a 122-122 deadlock, and Kilpatrick soon followed with a three-point play to cap the scoring, providing a sense of relief for first-year head coach Kenny Atkinson.
Despite challenge, House Democrats re-elect Pelosi as minority leader
Kurt Schrader of Oregon. "I was anxious they had learned from the elections and might be competitive and cohesive again". Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) Wednesday to unseat her, enabling her to continue on as the top Democrat in Congress.
Following the call by referee Ken Mauer, who gave Rivers the two techs despite not being involved in the original foul call, the former title-winning coach explained his viewpoint on the incident to the media.
Even though they lost, I think Rivers earned the respect of everyone who watched this game. Then, things got interesting.
Following the Nets' win, Mauer met with the pool reporter to address the technicals. The Clippers pulled within two with 19.9 seconds left at 117-115 when DeAndre Jordan made one of two foul shots. There were multiple extra factors that led Lob City to this loss.
Brook Lopez finished with 27 points, including four 3-pointers.
The third quarter has been another Nets problem area, but they cut the Clippers' lead to 69-62 on a Kilpatrick three-pointer midway through the quarter and were playing good defense. The Nets had a one-point lead at halftime but again struggled in the third quarter. Do we get him out or what?' Sean kept at it and kept competing, got a few shots to fall and started rolling. We have to fix it and stop the bleeding at some point.
"When we went to LA they got us bad", he said. Tonight the Nets hard handed the tough task of finding ways to put points on the scoreboard in a difficult man-to-man matchup against a deep and healthy LA squad. The Clippers continue their road trip Tuesday night and look to rebound from two double-digit losses when they face the Nets, who are dealing with an unsightly seven-game losing streak. However, Rivers asserted that the real reason Mauer slapped him with that T was because the official was trying to protect Holtkamp from what he assumed was abusive behavior. "I'm not smart enough to use biometrics.".
All the while, Paul acts as an extension of Rivers, for better and for worse.
