NBA: James, Davis dominate as Lakers end playoff drought

first_img Loading… The Bucks led by as much as nine in the first half before the Lakers forced a tie 48-48 at halftime. Davis was limited to five points in 10 first-half minutes because of foul trouble. James also talked about the possibility of playing NBA games without fans in the arena due to fears over the coronavirus outbreak. The league sent a memo to each team on Friday asking them to develop contingency plans to combat the spread of the virus. One of the alternatives is playing games behind closed doors. “Nah. It’s impossible,” said James. “If I show up to the arena and there ain’t no fans in the crowd, then I ain’t playing. “I ain’t never played the game without no fans. Ever since I started. This ain’t Europe. – ‘Ain’t playing’ – “I play for my teammates and I play for the fans. That’s what it is all about.” The Lakers have another difficult opponent on the weekend. On Sunday they face Kawhi Leonard and the Los Angeles Clippers, who are in second place behind the Lakers in the Western Conference standings. James said he wants to enjoy their third win in a row for a few hours before he starts thinking about how to play the Clippers. “I am going to get some rest tonight. Get a good dinner and a glass of wine, maybe two. Then lock in on Clippers tomorrow,” James said. Elsewhere, Josh Hart scored 19 points with 12 rebounds and rookie Zion Williamson tallied 17 points as the New Orleans Pelicans snapped a three-game winless streak with a 110-104 win over Miami on Friday.

The two stars played keep away from their teammates and would have shut out the rest of their bench had guard Alex Caruso not made a free throw with 14 seconds left on the clock and the game out of reach for Milwaukee. “I am extremely tired,” said James, who also had eight rebounds and eight assists in 37 minutes of playing time. The Lakers clinched a playoff spot for the first time since 2013, ending a seven-year tailspin. Reigning league MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo had a double double with a team-high 32 points and 11 rebounds in the loss. He was matched up against James for much of the evening. The Lakers earned a measure of revenge with Friday’s win. In their initial meeting this season on December 19 in Milwaukee, the Bucks defeated the Lakers 111-104. Antetokounmpo played a huge role in that victory with 34 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists. “He got to the free-throw line a lot,” said James of Antetokounmpo on Friday. “He is such a great player. I just wanted to keep a body in front of him and make it tough on him.” Kyle Kuzma, with 11, was the only other Laker to finish in double figures while the Bucks had five in double figures.center_img This was the first game in the last 14 that rising star Williamson scored fewer than 20 points, but the host Pelicans still managed to pull out the victory in front of a crowd of 18,300 at the Smoothie King Center.Brandon Ingram woke up in the fourth quarter to offset a poor shooting night by making two key late jump shots.

Palace and Norwich draw

first_img Norwich had dished out a 1-0 win over Palace to ruin Tony Pulis’ first game at the helm in November but Chris Hughton’s side have won just once in seven league outings since then. With the Selhurst Park pitch subjected to an ongoing downpour, referee Mike Dean was careful to take several looks at the surface before giving the game the green light. Press Association Bradley Johnson hammered the Canaries in front with a well-taken effort before Jason Puncheon levelled with a penalty late in the first-half. Despite having the better of the second period and Leroy Fer seeing red late on for the visitors, Palace could not find the winning goal and are now back inside the bottom three – with Norwich down to 15th. The first half-chance of the game fell to Puncheon as Joel Ward’s deep cross dropped kindly for the Southampton loanee, who could not time his effort which was easily cleared. Yannick Bolasie was tripped by Robert Snodgrass as he looked to turn away from the Norwich winger, with Eagles’ skipper Mile Jedinak bending the resulting free-kick just over the crossbar. Cameron Jerome had been passed fit to start despite suffering a knee injury at Manchester City on Saturday and he had a great chance to open the scoring on the half-hour mark – but he could not convert Puncheon’s cross after he had robbed Nathan Redmond of possession on the edge of the Norwich box. Norwich, who have not won at Palace in almost 21 years, had enjoyed pockets of possession without truly testing Julian Speroni in the Palace goal. But, as half-time approached, the visitors started to look more dangerous as Wes Hoolahan began to pull the strings with Snodgrass and Gary Hooper also coming in to the game for the Canaries. It did not take long for that pressure to pay off as Hoolahan and Hooper combined on the right before the latter cut the ball back to Johnson, who fired in off the post to put Hughton’s side in front. Marouane Chamakh, recalled to the starting line-up after being dropped to the bench at Man City, was then involved in an altercation with Hoolahan and was lucky to only pick up a yellow card after shoving the Republic of Ireland international to the ground. Jerome saw a header cleared off the line by Martin Olsson shortly afterwards before Mike Dean pointed to the spot, with Fer booked after he was adjudged to have pushed Jedinak in the back from the resulting corner. Puncheon stepped up and sent Ruddy the wrong way to level just before half-time. The England goalkeeper was almost caught cold at the start of the second half as Bolasie’s near-post corner almost eluded Ruddy, who could only scramble the ball behind for a corner. Speroni was also called in to action as he did well to keep out Redmond’s low shot six minutes after the break. Turner then missed a clearance to gift Palace another corner which found its way to Jerome, who could only fire his shot well over the bar. The mis-kick spelt the end of Turner’s game as he left the field with what appeared to be a hamstring problem, with Ryan Bennett replacing the former Sunderland man in the Canaries’ defence. With the hosts on top for much of the second half, Pulis decided to introduce Dwight Gayle in place of Jerome – who had wasted two gilt-edged opportunities before coming off after 63 minutes. With the rain still pouring and Palace on top, Norwich’s defence was starting to creak under the strain of keeping the Eagles at bay, with Pulis’ side unable to make the most of their constant string of corners. Hooper was feeding on scraps for Norwich but he did test Speroni with a low effort at the mid way point of the half, before Johan Elmander was introduced at the expense of Hoolahan to give the visitors more of a physical presence in attack. Any hopes Hughton had of leaving south London with three points took a blow when Fer was dismissed with seven minutes to go after picking up a second caution for a late challenge of Jedinak. Russell Martin was called upon by the Norwich boss to keep things tight at the back in the latter stages as the Scotland defender replaced Hooper. Palace could not muster up a clear-cut chance to secure all three points and, with Fulham beating West Ham, it means Pulis must now pull his side out of the relegation zone once again. Crystal Palace and 10-man Norwich played out a New Year’s Day draw in poor conditions at Selhurst Park – with a point not enough to prevent the Eagles slipping back in to the Barclays Premier League bottom three.last_img read more

(AP Photo/Ben Margot)ExpandOAKLAND — “I guess all the basketball people are not very smart,” Clippers forward Danilo Gallinari said, referring to prognosticators and pundits who had the Clippers winning between 37.5 games (according to the SuperBook at Westgate Las Vegas) and 33 (FiveThirtyEight) and missing the playoffs for the second consecutive season.Instead, Gallinari had a new short (“light”) playoff haircut and the Clippers were preparing to begin the first round of the Western Conference playoffs.Now, before the series began against the two-time defending Golden State Warriors on Saturday, oddsmakers made the Clippers 100-1 underdogs to win the series. According to SportsOddsHistory.com, that makes them the biggest underdog entering an NBA playoff series in 30 years.Related Articles Clippers vs. Mavericks Game 5 playoff updates from NBA beat reporters The Warriors, meanwhile, are -50,000 to beat the Clippers at the SuperBook, which means bettors would need to put $50,000 on Golden State to win $100.

I guess all the basketball people are not very smart saying that we couldn’t make it to the playoffs. We’re just a little smarter than them.“That’s the truth. I always talk about the truth.”ENGAGING CONVERSATIONThe Athletic recently polled 127 NBA players on a variety of topics, from where they stood on the great G.O.A.T. debate to this season’s MVP debate and much more.Patrick Beverley’s name appeared three times in the poll: He was the fourth-most-mentioned defender (with 10.5 percent of the vote), fourth as the “toughest” player, and second — with 15.4 percent of the vote — in response to the question: “Who talks to most trash?”“He’s pretty good; he engages,” Rivers acknowledged reluctantly. “It’s rare that the guy on the other team doesn’t engage with him, and to do that, you have to have good material… I guess. So I would say he has good material.” “Golden State is one of the great teams in the history of the game,” Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said. “They have three, four, five — I don’t know how many Hall of Famers they have on their team. So I get it. We’re fine with that.“It doesn’t give me motivation, though. It’s not like I’m gonna go in, ‘They made us 100-1!’ Like, I don’t care. We know who we are, we’re gonna play like who we are and we feel that’s fine, we feel that’s good enough.”Still, Rivers said he’d understand if some of his players took umbrage.“Any time you’re overseen or overlooked or whatever, we felt like that this whole time, that we’ve been kind of overlooked — and we’re in the playoffs,” rookie guard Landry Shamet said following the regular-season final against Utah. “We were predicted to have 30-some wins this year and not make the playoffs and all that, so we have that chip.“So they’re the favorite, but we gotta go in there thinking they gotta play us, too.” For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
