On the Warriors’ next possession, Durant converted a three-point play.The Clippers fought off elimination with a 129-121 win on the Warriors’ home floor in Game 5, but aside from a game-opening burst and another to start the second half they couldn’t make a stand in front of their crowd.Still, they bowed out knowing they had exceeded others’ low expectations of their playoff chances.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Rafael Nadal to face Dominic Thiem in Barcelona Open semifinals LATEST STORIES SEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte Clippers: Patrick Beverley had 14 rebounds for the second straight game, tying his career high. … They were 0-3 at home in a playoff series for the first time, having also lost Games 3 and 4 at Staples Center. … It was the last game of Hall of Fame announcer Ralph Lawler’s career.

Get him the ball and watch him work.Durant scored 38 of his playoff career-high 50 points in the first half, Draymond Green had a triple-double, and Golden State dominated in closing out the Los Angeles Clippers 129-110 Friday night to win their first-round series 4-2.ADVERTISEMENT Philippine Arena Interchange inauguratedcenter_img But Golden State held the Clippers to seven points the rest of the quarter and took a 102-78 lead into the fourth.

He wanted to change that so he had the team extend invitations to every former player.“The next day, John Havlicek walks into the gym and, in a typical John Havlicek way, walks up to me and introduced himself,” Rivers said. “He said, ‘Hi. I’m John Havlicek.’ Like I didn’t know. But that’s just who he was, and after that he was always around.”TIP-INSWarriors: Durant tied Phoenix’s Charles Barkley, who scored 38 in a half against Golden State on May 4, 1994, in a first-round series. … They improved to 17-8 in Game 6 of a playoff series. … The Warriors went 4-1 against the Clippers at Staples Center this season. … Former Clipper Shaun Livingston started in place of Andrew Bogut.

Catch of the tournament: Ingram’s stunning effort to dismiss Gayle leaves fans in awe

first_imgChris Gayle was at his lethal best for Kings XI Punjab against Delhi Capitals in Match 37 of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 at the Feroz Shah Kotla on Saturday.The big-hitting West Indies opener was going hammer and tongs, smashing the Delhi Capitals bowlers all over the park after Kings XI Punjab were sent in to bat by Shreyas Iyer.Gayle was severe against Ishant Sharma and the two Delhi Capitals’ spinners in Sandeep Lamichhane and Amit Mishra. Both the spinners leaked aplenty as Gayle was depositing quite a few, including a 101-meter six, into the Kotla stands. | DD vs KXIP, IPL 2019 live score |Gayle got to his fifty in just 25 balls and there were no signs of him slowing down as the big man kept punishing the Delhi Capitals bowlers.It seemed only a miracle could stop Chris Gayle and Colin Ingram provided Delhi Capitals with exactly that.WATCH: Ingram-Axar’s perfect relay catchFull video here https://t.co/GBheBXTuTq #DCvKXIP pic.twitter.com/kTgWx7VgPeIndianPremierLeague (@IPL) April 20, 2019Gayle had hit Sandeep Lamichhane in the first ball of his third over for a huge six and when he tried to make it two in two, he was caught at the deep mid-wicket boundary.Lamichhane had dropped the second ball of his third over short and Gayle, for the first time in the night, mistimed one into the night sky. Colin Ingram, who was stationed at deep mid-wicket caught the ball but realising the momentum was taking him over the boundary rope, he threw the ball into the field with a stunning backhand push.advertisementIngram, it seems, had clearly judged the effort needed to find Axar Patel who was running in to take the catch and complete the wicket. In the end, Axar didn’t move as he completed the catch with a smile on his face. Gayle had hit five sixes during his 37-ball 69 but perished while trying to add another big hit to his tally.Colin Ingram and Axar Patel’s terrific team effort left cricket fans on social media awestruck.
