Fresh off Game 7 thriller, Clippers head to Oklahoma City for next round

first_imgNo rest for the weary.Clippers coach Doc Rivers hosted a conference call Sunday morning, just about 12 hours after his team finished off the Golden State Warriors with a 126-121 victory in Game 7 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series at Staples Center.Get any sleep? Rivers was asked.“I got a little,” said Rivers, whose team was about to board a plane to Oklahoma City, where it will take on the Thunder tonight at 6:30 in the first game of their best-of-7 conference semifinal series. “We knew this was going to be one of those quick turnarounds, so as a coaching staff we got together after the game and had to do film work. “There is not going to be any sleep for any of our staff.”The alternative, Rivers said, would be his players cleaning our their lockers and doing exit interviews.“We’ll go through it because we want to,” Rivers said. “This is what we signed on to do and we’re right where we want to be, no matter how we got there and no matter how much adversity it took to get there.”Indeed, not only did the Clippers survive a courageous Warriors team, they did it under heavy scrutiny because of the racism scandal of now-lame-duck and banned team owner Donald Sterling.The Thunder are the No. 2 seed and have homecourt advantage, the Clippers are seeded No. 3. It figures to be another barnburner of a series. Rivers discussed a few things his team needs to watch. “The fast breaks and the turnovers,” he said. “You can’t turn the ball over against Oklahoma. It’s a guaranteed 2 and for (Kevin) Durant, it’s a 3. Offensive rebounding, they’re terrific at it. They have length.“I think (Russell) Westbrook is one of the best rebounding guards in our league, and so we have to control that. And then we just have to make Durant’s baskets hard.”Nothing easy, Rivers said, for the possible regular-season MVP. As for Westbrook, he’s averaging 9.7 rebounds in seven playoff games.The Clippers and Thunder split four games during the regular season, each team going 1-1 at home.CP3 one tough hombreIt could be seen on the face of Clippers guard Chris Paul during winning time Saturday. He was pumped up and was not going to let his team lose. He played 42 minutes on a strained right hamstring; he also has a sore left thumb. He scored 22 points, doled out 14 assists, had four steals and just two turnovers.Rivers can’t say enough about Paul. “I’ll tell you, I mean, at halftime he was very animated, in a positive way,” Rivers said. “I took him out for a couple of minutes in the third, or I think at the beginning of the fourth; I can’t remember. And he walked over to me and said, ‘Coach, I’m good. I’m going all the way today. If you’re all right, I’m all right.’“He really showed what he’s made of, just the character he has, and I thought his leadership and will helped the entire team. They know what he’s going through, and to give that performance on that stage was huge for us.”Paul spoke post-game about the victory itself, while alluding to the Sterling saga.“I’m just glad we pulled it out,” he said. “It’s going to sound crazy, but it was all about tonight. Everything else was in the past. We didn’t dwell on all that stuff, and not to diminish how serious everything’s been in the past week or so, it was all about basketball tonight. … Had we lost this game, it wasn’t as if they were going to let us go to the next round because of what we’ve been through.“I think it just showed our will, our fight.”Statistically speakingDurant averaged 29.9 points and 9.6 rebounds in seven playoff games against the Memphis Grizzlies. Westbrook averaged 25.6 points and 8.0 assists to go with the team-leading 9.7 rebounds; he’s listed at 6-foot-3. … Blake Griffin averaged 23.3 points in seven games against the Warriors, Paul averaged 17.4 points 9.0 assists. DeAndre Jordan averaged 12.1 points, 15.1 rebounds and 4.0 blocks. Other playoff scoring averages: Jamal Crawford (16.7), J.J. Redick (14.3), Darren Collison (9.6) and Matt Barnes (8.9). … The Clippers shot 55.4 percent from the field Saturday.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Alex Bowman to carry Tim Richmond’s paint scheme at Darlington

first_img“I’ve kind of joked about wanting to do a Tim Richmond throwback as long as I’ve been at Hendrick Motorsports,” Bowman said.It’s worth noting that the last time Richmond ran the Folgers scheme in a race at Darlington, he won the 1986 Southern 500. The special throwback paint scheme will be used in the Southern 500 Labor Day weekend at Darlington Raceway.How about this for a #NASCARThrowback look? 😎 @AlexBowman88 will channel the iconic colors of the late Tim Richmond with this paint scheme at @TooToughToTame: https://t.co/Xz2LICDgmA pic.twitter.com/KLm57kXJgQ— #NASCARSalutes (@NASCAR) June 7, 2019The announcement came on what would have been Richmond’s 64th birthday. Bowman shared his thoughts at Michigan International Speedway where the NASCAR Cup series is racing this [email protected], announced at @MISpeedway today that he will run a Tim Richmond tribute paint scheme at @TooToughToTame this year. #nascar #mispeedway @TeamHendrick pic.twitter.com/miKprWAYPu— Matt Myftiu (@MattMyftiu) June 7, 2019″I was always a big Tim Richmond fan,” Bowman said in a video announcing the news.FUN?

He’s fearless, he likes to drive the car out of control.”Richmond was one of the most colorful figures in NASCAR history, known for his hard-partying lifestyle that earned him the nickname “Hollywood.” He inspired the fictional character of Cole Trickle, played by Tom Cruise in the 1990 film “Days of Thunder.”Richmond was also a hard charger on the track, winning 13 of the 185 NASCAR Cup races he entered before illness ended his career.He died in August 1989 of complications from AIDS, which his family said he contracted from an unknown woman.But such was Richmond’s legacy that even younger fans, including the 26-year-old Bowman, have heard of his exploits, on and off the track. Almost 30 years after his death, Tim Richmond remains one of the most popular and fascinating drivers in NASCAR history.So NASCAR fans applauded Friday when Hendrick Motorsports announced that driver Alex Bowman’s No. 88 Chevrolet will carry the popular Folgers paint scheme Richmond used during his glory days at Hendrick.last_img read more
