#1 nvironment against a team that hasnt lost von love520 13.07.2019 06:56

NEW YORK -- CP3 mimicked giving CPR on a night that looked like lots of laughs for Los Angeles.Funny turned to fiery by the end, as an enraged Doc Rivers was thrown out as his team blew one in Brooklyn.Sean Kilpatrick scored 31 of his career-high 38 points after the third quarter and the Nets stopped a seven-game losing streak with a 127-122 double-overtime victory over the Clippers on Tuesday night.The Clippers started the game without Blake Griffin, ended it without Rivers and dropped their third straight game by coughing up an 18-point lead while not showing enough respect for the game in their coachs mind.We were walking around like we done something and that bothers me because weve done (nothing). We havent done (anything), Rivers said. For us to walk around against a team, that to me is playing their hearts out every night just to win one game, us to walk around like we done something, it bothers me on a basketball level.Chris Paul had 26 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds for the Clippers, but the best guard on the floor in crunch time was Kilpatrick, who also had a career-best 14 rebounds.Brook Lopez added 27 points for the Nets, who trailed 86-68 with 2 minutes left in the third quarter.We were down 20, then next minute you know we just kept chipping it down, Kilpatrick said. Then next minute I knew we were down four, and I was like yo, its on now. Its game time.DeAndre Jordan had 21 points and 23 rebounds for the Clippers, who rested Griffin, their leading scorer, ahead of a game in Cleveland on Thursday.Anybody in the league knows, they say, you mess with the game and like you said, the basketball gods got us, Paul said.The Clippers started 39-year-old Paul Pierce, who had played in just two games, in place of Griffin. Pierce had played just 17 minutes all season but logged 29 minutes in this one, such an increase in workload that Paul pushed down on his chest a few times on the court at one point, pretending to give CPR after Pierce fell on his back while being fouled on a dunk attempt.The Clippers were serious by the end.Rivers was tossed late in the first OT, becoming enraged and having to be held back by Clippers players and assistants as he tried to get at referee Ken Mauer. Rivers appeared upset about a call on the other end of the floor, walking out of the coaching box and almost all the way to the Nets bench.Mauer said crossing over midcourt was an automatic technical and the second was for language and behavior.Rivers missed Kilpatricks masterful finish, which he capped with a three-point play with 13.5 seconds left.The Nets, still playing without point guard Jeremy Lin, ended a skid that started with a 127-95 loss at the Clippers on Nov. 14.Los Angeles had lost in Detroit and Indiana in its last two games, managing just 70 points Sunday against the Pacers in its lowest-scoring game in 13 years. Rivers pointed to some defensive lapses as the bigger concern, and they certainly struggled to stay in front of Kilpatrick, who was just 3 for 14 after three quarters.TIP-INSClippers: J.J. Redick made a 3-poiner in his 75th straight game, tying one of Stephen Currys streaks for sixth-longest in NBA history. Currys NBA-record 157-game streak was snapped earlier this season.Nets: Coach Kenny Atkinson still couldnt give a timetable on Lin, saying the point guard who missed his 12th straight game with a strained left hamstring was working hard and progressing as planned.DOC IS JUST A NICKNAMEThe Clippers have increased their spending on biometrics this season, and Rivers -- first name Glenn -- was asked if he relied on that to determine Griffin would sit.I clearly didnt, Im not smart enough to use biometrics, Rivers said. But the people we hired did, and they told me biometrically that this would be a good day for him to rest.UP NEXTClippers: Visit Cleveland on Thursday night. The Clippers have lost the last four meetings.Nets: Host Milwaukee on Thursday night, opening a home-and-home series against former Nets star and coach Jason Kidds Bucks, who have won the last five meetings.---Follow Brian Mahoney on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/Briancmahoney Chris Paul Rockets Jersey .

PHILADELPHIA -- Aaron Rodgers is so confident the Green Bay Packers can save their season in a hostile environment against a team that hasnt lost at home that he forgot to stick to the typical one-game-at-a-time mantra.I feel like we can run the table. I really do, Rodgers said. The offense is starting to click a little bit more. Weve just got to put together a game where were more consistent from the first snap to the last.Before they can win six in a row, the Packers (4-6) have to win one. It wont be easy Monday night at Philadelphia.The Eagles (5-5) are 4-0 at home, including a 34-3 rout over Pittsburgh in Week 3, a 21-10 win against Minnesota last month and a 24-15 victory over Atlanta two weeks ago. Theyve outscored opponents 108-38 at the Linc.A night game means fans have more time to tailgate and get riled up for the opponent. Rodgers recalled a Monday night game in Philly in 2006 when he was still Brett Favres backup.(They were) screaming and yelling at me about getting the splinters out of my butt, Rodgers said. Give them credit. A good trash-talk is tough to do. Theyre some of the best fans. You definitely have to get ahead of them early, and try to take the crowd out.While Green Bay has lost four straight, the Eagles are 2-5 since a 3-0 start. Both teams need a win to avoid slipping further behind in the playoff race.We are still in the thick of things and have to stack up one win at a time and obviously fix the mistakes that we make, Philadelphia safety Malcolm Jenkins said.Here are some things to watch for when the Eagles host the Packers under the prime-time lights:NEW TARGET: Carson Wentz might have a familiar face for the first time this season. Paul Turner was signed off the practice squad and could make his NFL debut.Turner, an undrafted free agent, was Philadelphias best receiver in the preseason and spent a lot of time working with Wentz with the rest of the third-string offense. If Turner is active, 2015 first-round pick Nelson Agholor might sit. Agholor has struggled and is coming off a terrible performance at Seattle. He had no catches and a costly penalty for illegal formation that nullified a TD.We had a lot of opportunities together, so well have a good connection, Wentz said oof Turner.ddddddddddddTWO-HEADED RUSHING ATTACK: The Packers have had trouble generating a running game since Eddie Lacy (ankle) and James Starks (knee) were injured last month. Starks returned the last two games, but Lacy is done for the year. Now coach Mike McCarthy hopes recently acquired Christine Michael can contribute Monday night. Michael was claimed off waivers from Seattle last week. Having Michael and Starks would give the Packers two experienced running backs again. A semblance of a consistent running attack could help balance what has been a pass-heavy offense by necessity.IN THE TRENCHES: Eagles DT Fletcher Cox vs. Packers RG Jason Spriggs. Cox was the NFCs Defensive Player of the Month in September after signing a huge contract, but has no sacks since Oct. 9. Still, hes been disruptive and makes plays not registered on the stat sheet. Spriggs, a rookie second-round pick, is a natural tackle but stepped in at guard when Don Barclay injured his shoulder last week. Either Spriggs or Barclay has a tough assignment against Cox.MEN IN THE MIDDLE: The injury bug on defense hit the middle linebackers. Starters Jake Ryan (ankle) and Blake Martinez (knee) have each gone down in recent weeks. By the end of last weeks game, Joe Thomas and Carl Bradford were playing inside linebacker.Thomas normally plays on passing downs and Bradford just came off the practice squad. McCarthy may need to shift Clay Matthews back inside to help fill the void. Matthews is coming back from his own injury, a sore hamstring that kept sidelined for three games. The Packers also have a predicament because moving Matthews might mean fewer snaps for him outside. A once-productive pass rush has slowed down in recent weeks.INJURED BACKS: The Eagles could be without RB Ryan Mathews (knee) and Darren Sproles has a broken rib, so hes unlikely to carry the workload. Rookie Wendell Smallwood and fourth-stringer Kenjon Barner would be have to lead the rushing attack if Mathews is out.---Follow Rob M
