Griffin’s 3-pointer beats Blazers, keeps Clippers undefeated

Blake Griffin made a 3-pointer as time expired and the Los Angeles Clippers remained unbeaten with a 104-103 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on Thursday night.

Griffin, who scored 16 of his 25 points during the fourth quarter, got the ball on the left side of the floor and hit the 3-pointer just inside the line, the game’s sixth lead change during the final two minutes.

DeAndre Jordan had seven points and 18 rebounds for Los Angeles, which at 4-0 is one of two unbeaten teams remaining in the NBA. Danilo Gallinari and Austin Rivers had 16 points apiece for the Clippers.

“It makes me sick to my stomach,” Long said of all the injuries.

Of the Redskins’ top six linemen, only one, right tackle Morgan Moses, was on the field at game’s end. He, too, is dealing with two sprained ankles.

The CFP will still have his input on those reports, and there are also two people assigned to each league, so Oregon athletic director Rob Mullens is there to handle the Mountain West report, along with Tyrone Willingham, who also monitors the ACC with Wieberg. They were expected to give their reports at the start of Monday’s meetings.

“We had been debating for a couple months what we would do in terms of Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping visiting the White House, if we would or not, how it would unfold,” Kerr said in an Cheap Jerseys In China interview with Dan Pfeiffer, a former president Barack Obama administration adviser, that aired on Monday’s Pod Save America podcast.

“We were sorting through it all, but before we could get to anything, the president beat us to the punch.

“I don’t think we would have gone. And I think he knew that. Several of us had been very critical of the president in the past year, and it would have been awkward, for sure.”

Ezekiel Elliott suspension delay could burn Cowboys at worst possible time

The Cowboys got through the first seven games of the 2017 season without Ezekiel Elliott serving any of his NFL-imposed suspension. But after the running back played in Dallas’ Week 8 win over Washington, the team might regret the timing if his six-game ban goes into effect.

In this case in particular, it’s easier to survive a near half-season suspension earlier in the year rather than later. Elliott is an indispensable asset for the Cowboys, but he will be even more critical for them in November and December, when weather becomes more of a factor in their status as road warriors.

The Eagles — not the Cowboys, Giants or Redskins — have emerged as the team to beat in the NFC East. Elliott is now in line to miss one game each against Philadelphia, New York and Washington. The other three games in the six-week stretch beginning in Week 9 include the mighty Chiefs (5-2), the dangerous Falcons (3-3) and the rising Chargers (3-4).

So we’ve had to bump our top defensive player, Alabama star Minkah Fitzpatrick, to make room for the Irish standout. Not only does our Heisman field have a very heavy running back vibe, it also has a very strong Northeast feel to it, with two of the candidates hailing from Pennsylvania (Barkley and Adams) and a third, Jonathan Taylor, being from New Jersey.

The selection committee consists of 13 people. They are: former Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer, former Southern Miss coach Jeff Bower, former Central Michigan coach Herb Deromedi, Texas Tech AD Kirby Hocutt (chair), Robert Morris University president Chris Howard, former NCAA executive Cheap Denver Broncos Jerseys Tom Jernstedt, former Vanderbilt coach Bobby Johnson, Arkansas AD Jeff Long, Oregon Cheap Hockey Jerseys Custom AD Rob Mullens, Clemson AD Dan Radakovich, Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith, retired sports reporter Steve Wieberg and former coach Tyrone Willingham.

Now, will Barkley go in the top five in April?

I think he will. A team will fall in love with him and take him — that’s just what happens.

McShay: Mel has a lot of philosophies that I’ve heard over the years, but I hate to say that this is one I generally agree with. It places a tremendous expectation on a player if you take a RB in the top five, especially if your team has other holes. Before answering the question, you need answers from the team on the following: What does the O-line look like? What is the QB situation? Is the coaching staff committed to the running game? However, Barkley is simply a special player. He’s No. 2 overall in my Top 32 right now, and I believe he’s worthy of that top-five pick.

“[Mama Lucia’s] is probably where everyone used to eat,” says New York Rangers defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk, who played with Ovechkin for part of last season. “Ovi, being one of those original guys, still gets it delivered in. I dabbled in it one day, but it’s a little too heavy for me.”

When Ovechkin joined the Capitals, in 2005, he and eight or nine other players were in on the order. Now, although winger T.J. Oshie often mooches off the bread and sauce, only fellow Russians Evgeny Kuznetsov and Dmitry Orlov regularly order with Ovechkin, whose pregame meal choice never varies.

“Hockey changes, everyone changes. Now everybody eats the healthy food,” says Kuznetsov. “But with this, [Ovechkin] keeps it the same.”

Chase Elliott finished second for the second consecutive week Liverpool Cheap Jerseys and sixth time in his career. He nearly won for the first time in the Cup series a week ago, but Mitchell And Ness Cheap Jerseys Busch ran him down and passed him for the win with one lap to go.

Harvick was third and Hamlin finished fourth. Like his teammate Busch, Hamlin was drained after the race. His firesuit was soaked with sweat stains and he needed to eat a banana to recover.
