Clippers fail to cover Utah marksmen in 114-108 loss - Mar 14, 2017

Gordon
Hayward
In a tense, taut and trash-talking game with playoff consequences, the Clippers got blitzed by an avalanche of Utah three-pointers Monday night, essentially dooming them in a 114-108 loss to the Jazz at Vivint Smart Home Arena. Two skirmishes in this game, between Clippers guard J.J. Redick and Jazz center Rudy Gobert (7'1''-C-92) and then between Chris Paul (6'0''-PG-85, college: Wake Forest) and Gobert, could be the genesis of a contentious playoff series if both teams continue on course toward an increasingly likely first-round matchup. The Clippers, fifth in the Western Conference, had won nine consecutive games in Salt Lake City, and the ending of that streak on Monday dropped them two games behind the fourth-place Jazz. When the teams meet for the last time in the regular season on March 25 at Staples Center, it'll be another significant encounter. The Clippers lead the season series, 2-1. 'We play them again,' said Paul, who had 33 points, seven assists and six rebounds. 'So we both got a lot more games. We could drop, they could drop. We could go up. I'm sure ya'll [will] probably ask that question again when we play them. I don't know what this means. It means they beat us tonight. They played a good game. They got us, and we'll see.' The game began to unravel for the Clippers in the third quarter, when they gave up 40 points after leading at the half, 56-49. They were done in when the Jazz made 10 consecutive three-point shots spanning the third and fourth quarters. The Jazz, who got 27 points from All-Star forward Gordon Hayward (6'8''-G/F-90, college: Butler) and 19 from guard George Hill (6'3''-PG-86, college: IUPUI), made 11 of 12 three-point attempts in the second half, putting the Clippers in a 13-point hole. For the game, Utah shot 52.6% from the field and 14 for 21 from three-point range. 'They didn't feel us,' Paul said of Utah's open three-point looks. 'They were just coming off naked. They were putting us in rotations. They were getting whatever they wanted.' As the Jazz's lead began to reach a level the Clippers couldn't quite get to in the fourth, that's when scuffles broke out. First Redick and Gobert got entangled, leading to the 7-foot-1 Jazz center getting hit with a technical foul. Then with 22.7 seconds left, Paul and Gobert got into it. Replays showed Paul shoving Gobert in the back. The two jostled, ending with Paul getting a technical foul. Gobert pointed at the scoreboard, which showed the Jazz up by nine points. 'It was a tech on me. Just a little tussle,' Paul said. 'I ain't worried about him. He just talks a lot. He can play, but he just talk a lot.' Both teams have 15 regular-season games left, making a postseason encounter that much more likely. For the Clippers, that means assigning a scout to shadow the Jazz soon. 'I know statistically there's a great chance we're going to play them so you start watching them more,' Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said. 'They're watching us more. In about five games, we'll send someone to just travel with them. . . . He's going to go to every game, that's what they'll do back, and you try to pick up stuff.'

Washington Wizards point guard John Wall (6'4''-PG-90, college: Kentucky) ended his night early, walking off the court with the clock stopped late in the final quarter. He deserved the proper ovation for a road villain - hard handshakes from teammates and scattered boos from a salty crowd - after closing out the Atlanta Hawks. As the Wizards defeated Atlanta, 115-99, in Game 6 of a first-round playoff series and advance to meet the top-seeded Celtics in the Eastern Conference semifinals,...   [read more]

The Boston Celtics completed their first-round playoff comeback against the Chicago Bulls on Friday with a commanding 105-83 victory in Game 6 at the United Center to win the series, 4-2. Boston dropped the first two games of the series but won four straight after Rajon Rondo (6'1''-PG-86, college: Kentucky) suffered a fractured right thumb. All five Celtics starters scored in double figures, and Avery Bradley (6'2''-PG-90, college: Texas) led the balanced effort with 23 points. Jimmy But...   [read more]

Erik Spoelstra Has Interest In Running Heat Front Office Someday - 22 hours ago
Erik Spoelstra has interest in running the Miami Heat when Pat Riley retires. Spoelstra was asked about it during an interview with Adrian Wojnarowski. "Short answer would be, I'm a Pat Riley disciple, and, like I've said, he's always pushed me and nurtured me for the next steps," Spoelstra said during the interview recorded in Southern California. "So, yes, that I'd love to have that opportunity years down the line from the Arison family, because I believe in them so much as human beings.    [read more]
