Chris Paul on 30-point loss to Mavericks: ‘You have to flush it’

first_imgThe Mavericks shot 60.7 percent from the field, 57.1 percent (16 of 28) from 3-point range.Missing piecesThe Clippers are now 9-6 without Blake Griffin, who has missed the past 15 games because of a staph infection in his right elbow. Jamal Crawford (calf strain) missed his fifth consecutive game, during which the Clippers are 2-3.Griffin could possibly return today. If not, Tuesday at home against Charlotte would be his next opportunity.Scouting the RocketsThe Clippers are 2-1 against Houston. They won 102-85 on Nov. 28 at Houston and 110-95 Feb. 11 at Staples Center before losing 110-105 Feb. 25 at Houston. The Clippers have done rather well in holding down MVP candidate James Harden. He had 16 points on Nov. 28 on 5-of-12 shooting, nine points on Feb. 11 on 3-of-12 shooting and 21 points on Feb. 25 while shooting 4 of 13. He is a combined 3 of 20 from 3-point range.Harden averages 26.8 points, second in the league. He’s averaging just 15.3 against the Clippers.Tough scheduleHere’s what the Clippers are looking after today’s game: Tuesday at home against Charlotte, Wednesday at Sacramento, Friday at home against Washington and Sunday at home against New Orleans. “It is what it is; that’s the West,” Paul said of the conference’s competitiveness.Clippers coach Doc Rivers had in inkling Dallas would play with tremendous urgency. He was just hopeful his team would respond as such. The Clippers trailed 59-51 at halftime but were outscored 70-48 in the second half.“Yes, I thought they were into us,” Rivers said. “I thought they had their hands on us and we didn’t put our hands on them all game. You knew it was coming, but I thought we would handle it better. We did at the beginning of the game and it went down hill from there.”Paul, however, refused to buy any of the pregame motivation Dallas may have had.“All of that rah-rah stuff doesn’t mean anything,” he said. “You still have to play the game. We just didn’t play well.” The Clippers had to know there was a good chance the Dallas Mavericks would play them very hard Friday night at American Airlines Center in Dallas because the Mavericks had won just two of their previous seven games and were coming off a 33-point loss Tuesday at home to Cleveland.Although the Clippers surely did not expect to lose by 30 points (129-99) — their worst defeat of the season — they therefore choose not to dwell on the lopsided defeat moving forward.“They can have this one,” said Clippers point guard Chris Paul, whose team finished the regular season 2-1 against the Mavericks. “We have to get ready for the game on Sunday. This was ugly. I don’t think we play them anymore. You have to flush it.”Today, the Clippers play host to the Houston Rockets at 12:30 p.m. at Staples Center. It’s another game against a Western Conference playoff-bound team as the Rockets (43-22) are in fourth in the standings, 1 1/2 games ahead of the fifth-place Clippers (42-24); Dallas (42-25) is now in sixth, just a half-game behind the Clippers.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

MICHO: It is unacceptable this great club is not winning trophies

first_imgPirates were the first South African club to be crowned African champions, stunning ASEC Mimosas 1-0 in the Ivory Coast to win the 1995 African Cup of Champions Clubs.They came close to further CAF titles this decade, finishing runners-up in the 2013 Champions League and 2015 Confederation Cup, the second-tier competition.But the 2016-2017 domestic season was a disaster as the “Sea Robbers” ended a humiliating 11th in the 16-club Premiership and failed to win any of three cup competitions.Poor results have been blamed partly on “prima donnas” reportedly dominating the changeroom, reducing various coaches to helpless onlookers.A club insider told AFP this week that Jonevret was a good coach but lacked the man-management skills to rein in a group of big-headed players.Sredojevic came to Africa in 2001 and coached clubs in Uganda, Ethiopia, South Africa, Tanzania and Sudan and the national teams of Rwanda and Uganda.He ended a successful spell as coach of Uganda last weekend having failed to secure $64,000 (54,000 euros) in unpaid salaries.[View the story “Former Uganda Cranes coach Micho moves to Orlando Pirates” on Storify]Share on: WhatsApp Orlando Pirates chairman Khoza welcomes Micho. PHOTO @Orlando_PiratesSredojevic named coach of struggling PiratesSoweto, South Africa | AFP |  Serb Milutin “Micho” Sredojevic was confirmed Thursday in Soweto as coach of popular but underachieving South African club Orlando Pirates.“There is huge room for improvement,” said the 47-year-old of a team that has won just one trophy in five seasons.It will be a second stint in charge of the “Buccaneers” for the slightly-built European, whose previous spell lasted just seven months.During that time, Sredojevic took Pirates to the 2006 CAF Champions League semi-finals, but indifferent domestic form cost him his job.He has signed a three-year contract as successor to Swede Kjell Jonevret, who quit Wednesday after winning only six of 18 matches since taking over early this year.“I am a changed, calmer and more confident coach that when last at Pirates,” stressed the Serb during a media conference at the Orlando Stadium home of Pirates.“My biggest motivation for rejoining Pirates is the talent at the club. I see huge room for improvement.“It is totally unacceptable that this great club has not being winning trophies. We must become a team of winners.”last_img read more
