Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum Rome, as they say, wasn’t built in a day.There’s pressure that comes with being an NBA lottery pick, lofty expectations attached to being drafted 13th overall and arriving with the reputation – based on a 40.9 collegiate 3-point shooting percentage – as a sharpshooter.Sure, sometimes Zion Williamson introduces himself by erupting for 17 consecutive points in three minutes. But more often, life in the NBA (and life in general) doesn’t deliver such instant gratification.Second-year Clippers guard Jerome Robinson gets that. “There’s not grown men in our league for no reason,” Robinson said last week. “There’s not guys who are in their 30s or late-20s flourishing in our league for no reason.“It’s all opportunity and just figuring out the game and figuring out your game. So once the pieces are put together, look how (players such as Markelle Fultz or Brandon Ingram) have blossomed. It’s just staying focused and trying to get better every day, that’s all you can really do.”Heading into Friday’s game in Miami, the Clippers’ first meeting with the Heat, Robinson is figuring it out, one subtle step at a time.Take Wednesday’s 102-95 loss in Atlanta, when the Clippers couldn’t overcome a spectacular second-half collapse or the fact that they allowed a season-high 63 rebounds, including a season-worst 23 on the offensive glass, to a Hawks team that was averaging 42.5 boards, third-fewest in the NBA.For 19 minutes sprinkled across the Clippers’ early surge and their subsequent crash, Robinson exhibited those continued incremental improvements, getting a smart wrap-around pass to a red-hot Montrezl Harrell, showing himself to be an engaged rebounder, keeping his feet moving defensively. For his part, Robinson, who is shooting just 34.1 percent overall and 29.7 percent from 3-point range, said he’s learned the key to unlocking more offensive opportunities will come on the defensive end.“I have limited minutes, so I’m coming out regardless,” he said. “It’s playing those minutes as hard as I can, no matter how it’s going for me offensively, just giving that effort on the defensive end.“Everything else will take care of itself.”—– CLIPPERS AT HEAT —–When: Friday, 5 p.m.Where: American Airlines Arena, MiamiTV: ESPN, Fox Sports Prime Ticket Clippers’ Paul George: ‘If I make shots, this series could be a little different’ Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “You almost have to play perfect to get Doc’s trust,” veteran guard Patrick Beverley said of Coach Doc Rivers. “And even if you do play perfect, it’s still kind of hard.“One thing that’s good for him in a sophomore season is that he’s learning. He’s on a team with Doc Rivers as head coach, where he’s learning how to play the game of basketball the right way. That’s bigger than any type of playing time, any type of experience at all – playing the right way.”Said Rivers of Robinson: “He’s transformed himself into a better defensive player. He’s come into a couple of games and turned it around with his defensive energy. His shot has been inconsistent, but he can do other things than just shoot the ball.”On Wednesday, Robinson recorded five rebounds, four assists, a blocked shot, and although he went 1 for 5 from the field and clanged a couple of shots from behind the arc, the shot he sank came when he stepped confidently into a 3-pointer.“When I was like 19½, people were like, ‘He should go back to Europe,’” said Ivica Zubac, now the Clippers’ 22-year-old starting center. “People are impatient. And some guys take longer than others – and I’m not saying that’s the case with Jerome – but we’ve got to understand his role. It’s hard when you’re a young player, second year, to not play for like 10 games and then they throw you in and they want you to do everything perfect. But what Jerome is doing, on defense, he’s been really great.“I wish he’d shoot with some more confidence, but that’ll come,” Zubac continued. “Everyone’s talking to him, telling him, ‘Shoot it. When you’re open, don’t hesitate, don’t think about it, that’s what you do, that’s why you got in the league, you can shoot it!’”Related Articles What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 Game 4 photos: Luka Doncic, Mavs shock Clippers in overtime For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory
Greg Olsen concussion statusOlsen missed Week 14 after getting concussed in Week 13. Ian Thomas saw 10 targets and scored a touchdown in Olsen’s absence. A return for Olsen will depend on clearing the NFL’s concussion protocol.WEEK 15 DFS LINEUPS:FD Cash | FD GPP | DK Cash | Y! Cash | Y! GPPThe Panthers take on the Seahawks in Week 15, who just allowed a 100-yard game to Tyler Higbee, so whichever of Olsen or Thomas gets the start should be considered a back-end fantasy starter. If Evan Engram can make it back for Week 15, the tight end rankings will be nearly back to full strength (although Mark Andrews’ injury means that might not be totally true). We’re also looking for the latest updates on Gerald Everett and Greg Olsen, who each missed Week 14, as well. If they remain out, Tyler Higbee and Ian Thomas would once again serve as priority waiver pickups and sleepers.For updates on injured QBs Patrick Mahomes, Jameis Winston, and Tom Brady, click here; for news on banged-up WRs Calvin Ridley, Mike Evans, DJ Chark, and DeVante Parker, go here; for the latest on injured RBs Derrius Guice, Derrick Henry, and more, go here; for the latest on ailing TEs Noah Fant, Ryan Griffin, Mark Andrews, and Jared Cook, click here; for updates on WRs Adam Thielen, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Will Fuller, and T.Y.

WEEK 15 NON-PPR RANKINGS: Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerEvan Engram injury updateAfter there was some speculation that Engram (foot) would return for Week 14, he was ruled out Saturday ahead of the Giants’ Monday night game. He’s missed four-straight contests due to a foot injury, allowing Kaden Smith to continue to start. New York takes on the Dolphins on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET in Week 15.Engram gets plugged right back into fantasy lineups if he’s active, while Smith remains a deep-league option if he gets the start against the Dolphins.WEEK 15: Top Waiver PickupsGerald Everett injury newsEverett (knee) has missed two straight games while Tyler Higbee has topped 100 yards in both. Sean McVay told reporters Monday that Everett is progressing but will likely be held out of practice early in the week.Considering Higbee had already leapfrogged Everett before the injury, anyone who’s relying on Higbee at this point shouldn’t be worried. Higbee proved his 100-yard game against the Cardinals wasn’t a fluke by doing it again, so he’s a borderline fantasy starter for Week 15 against the Cowboys.

A woman drove almost 20 metres with a customs officer clinging to the bonnet of her car with her child in the back after failing to stop at a checkpoint.Caroline Duggan overtook a school bus and several cars on a continuous white line while trying to avoid an initial checkpoint.But the mother-of-three was then waved down by another customs officer while driving her illegally-registered BMW in October 2011. Duggan, 33, of Hawthorn Hill in Manorcunningham, then drove at speed at the checkpoint to try and avoid it.One of the officers was pushed onto the bonnet and Mrs Duggan roared at him to “get the f*** off my car.”The officer was uninjured and Mrs Duggan refused to get out of the Northern-Ireland registered 5 series BMW car.Mrs Duggan appeared for sentencing at Letterkenny District Court after being found guilty of motoring offences.The court heard that Ms Duggan had been stopped just days before the incident at another customs checkpoint and had given her name as Caroline Martin and a different address.Judge Paul Kelly had told an earlier sitting of Letterkenny District Court he could think of few things more dangerous than someone driving at speed at another person.“There is little more frightening than being approached by a car at any speed, not to mention having a three year old in it.“She knew what she was doing as she had been stopped two days earlier. It was entirely brought about by her own behaviour,” he said.He then sent Ms Duggan on a four week driving course and adjourned the case until yesterday.Ms Duggan had since sold the car to raise the €1,000 penalty after the car was seized.At yesterday’s sitting solicitor Kieran Dillon pleaded with Judge Paul Kelly to be lenient with his client.“She deeply regrets what she allowed herself to do on the day in question,” said the solicitor.Judge Kelly responded: “This was entirely self-inflicted. It is widely know, particularly in this part of the country, it you are not permitted to drive a UK-registered vehicle and that’s what has given rise to this incident. Thankfully the Customs officer involved was not injured.”Fining her €350 for careless driving Judge Paul Kelly said: “This is the most extraordinary case. She has hopefully learned from this experience and she had better implement everything she has learned on this court or she will be put off the road.”MUM DROVE WITH CUSTOMS OFFICER ON BONNET OF CAR AND CHILD IN BACKSEAT was last modified: January 18th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:BMWCaroline Duggancustoms officersJudge Paul Kellymanorcunninghampatrol
