Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum “If I put the basketball on the floor, I can probably make 43 percent of my shots, but that’s not really gonna do nothing for us with the outcome of the game. We got a nice flow, everyone’s touching the rock, everybody shooting and scoring, so I’m not gonna get in the way of the game because I want to have a little back-and-forth with Patrick Beverley, I’m Kevin Durant.“In this series, it’s kind of weird,” Durant continued. “When a guy’s that small, you got the advantage, but listen, we’ve heard ‘David and Goliath’ a lot growing up. That story is pretty prominent in people’s minds. So when you put that out on the court against me, then the refs are gonna (allow) him a little bit more“So when he runs up like a pitbull, grabs me, holds me, I don’t mind it; that’s how he make his money, that’s how he feeds his family. But if I throw something back, then let us play, you get what I’m saying? … I’m just trying to figure out each possession how I can be more effective without getting offensive fouls.” Clippers vs. Mavericks Game 5 playoff updates from NBA beat reporters PLAYA VISTA — The game within the games that has stirred the most intrigue during this first-round playoff series is the one pitting Patrick Beverley, the Clippers’ defensive dynamo, against Kevin Durant, the Golden State Warriors’ superstar scorer.In recent days, Durant has sought to remind reporters covering the series – which heads to Staples Center for Game 3 on Thursday tied at a game apiece – that Clippers vs. Warriors isn’t him vs. Beverley. And Beverley has asserted that his demonstrative, aggressive defense is just him doing what he always does.Still, the matchup between the Clippers’ 6-foot-1 guard and the Warriors’ 6-9 forward is proving a juicy subplot, especially because both players were ejected in the fourth quarter of Game 1 after being assessed two technical fouls apiece then both fouled out of Game 2.On Wednesday, Durant offered reporters in Oakland his professional assessment of the matchup: “… when I get the ball in my spots, I got a pest, Patrick Beverley, who is up underneath me, who I could definitely shoot over top (of) and score every time if it was a one-on-one situation, but we got a guy who’s dropping and helping, and then another guy who’s sitting on me waiting for me to dribble the basketball. What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory The goal, he added, simply is to “try to be as physical as possible within the lines and within the rules, and set the tone that way.”It helps, he said, that the Clippers’ reputation proceeds them.“The best thing about our team is we have a reputation of playing hard,” Beverley said. “You play hard, you might foul sometimes, but refs are not gonna call every foul – and that’s both ways.“But,” he continued, “I got ejected the first game and fouled out the second game, so I haven’t even played a full game yet. Let’s try to play a full game first.”THE COMEBACKWith another game bearing down on them, the Clippers might be trying to put Monday’s historic rally behind them.But basketball fans would be forgiven for continuing to marvel at the feat: The 31-point comeback at Oracle Arena was not only the largest in NBA playoff history, but the largest comeback of any kind in Clippers history and the third-largest in any NBA game since at least 1996. Kristaps Porzingis ruled out as Clippers, Mavericks set for Game 5; Follow for game updates In Playa Vista, Beverley told reporters he asked to guard Durant, downplaying his success so far by pointing out that his primary assignment is averaging a healthy number of points (22) in the first two contests.But, Beverley said, from where he stands, the height difference gives him the advantage: “I think it works in my favor. His center base is probably where my shoulder starts, so I’m fortunate to have a strong baseline and try to take away his legs from him.”And, again, he insisted his intent is not to rattle Durant.“I don’t try to get into anybody’s (head), I just try to go out and be me. If people get frustrated, then it’s their fault, not mine,” Beverley said.Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire “He’s a made a lot of good plays as well,” Roberts said. “Honestly, no one prepares like Justin. It’s something that just kind of … no one’s more frustrated than he is about it probably. I don’t want to give it too much thought. It’s baseball and I still trust the defense. I really do. We all do.”Most defensive metrics show Turner having a slightly down year defensively after being a Gold Glove finalist two years ago. The fractured left wrist he suffered in spring training was certainly responsible for a subpar offensive first half. But Turner said the wrist feels “fine” and is not a factor in his recent defensive mistakes.Roberts endorses that.“I don’t think so,” he said. “If you look at some of the plays, it’s a play to the left, it’s an exchange kind of thing. As I recall when his wrist was bothering him it was the backhand play that was getting him. A lot of the (recent) plays have been to the forehand so I don’t think there’s a correlation.”SHORT RESTThe question of whether the Dodgers will ask their ace, Clayton Kershaw, to pitch on short rest comes up every postseason. With the possibility of play-in-games and wild-card scenarios hanging in the air, it has come up sooner than usual. Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco PHOENIX — Justin Turner doesn’t offer an explanation, telling reporters to “call it what you want” – and he probably shouldn’t have to.Six times in the past 11 games, the Dodgers’ third baseman has bobbled a ball, flubbed a grounder or otherwise failed to make a play. It is a cluster that represents more than half of his error total for the season (10). And it is surrounded by a far greater number of exceptional plays that he did make (three in Monday’s game alone).“I don’t know what there is to make of it,” Turner said. “I came in and picked a ball on the short hop and couldn’t get it out of my glove.”That was Tuesday’s error. The others have been equally innocent taken individually and Dodgers manager Dave Roberts sees no pattern or reason for concern either. Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season But not with Kershaw. Roberts said Wednesday he has not spoken with Kershaw about the possibility of pitching on short rest next week if the Dodgers find themselves needing to win their way into a Division Series.“No. I’ve spoken to Clayton about his start on Saturday. That’s about it,” Roberts said. “Then whatever situation presents itself we’ll have a conversation.“It’s not even on our radar right now.”In winning the past five National League West titles, the Dodgers never faced the kind of do-or-die scenario on the final weekend of the season that they face this year. But the Dodgers started Kershaw on short rest five times during the 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 playoffs (including once after his memorable relief appearance to close out the Washington Nationals in the opening round two years ago).The Dodgers will hold left-hander Rich Hill back this weekend for possible use in a play-in game or wild-card game.MAEDA MINDDodgers reliever Kenta Maeda had an upsetting start to his week.On Monday, a fastball got away from him and hit Diamondbacks first baseman Christian Walker in the face. Walker suffered facial fractures and underwent surgery to wire his jaw shut. Maeda was visibly shaken, walking to home plate to check on Walker as he was treated by the Diamondbacks’ training staff.Then on Tuesday, he gave up a walk-off home run to the only batter he faced.But Roberts said he did not feel the need to talk to Maeda to shore up his confidence or check on his state of mind.“Obviously, it’s a very unfortunate situation with what happened to Christian Walker,” Roberts said. “I’m sure he feels very bad about that, understands that there was no intent. But that doesn’t change the result. I don’t think it carried over into last night.“He’s down tonight because it’s two in a row (that he’s pitched). But I’m not having him down because I think it’s a psychological thing. … With everything that’s transpired the last couple days, I think he’s fine.”UP NEXTThe Dodgers are off Thursday.Dodgers (LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu, 6-3, 2.00 ERA) at Giants (LHP Madison Bumgarner, 6-6, 3.20 ERA), Friday, 7:15 p.m., SportsNet LA (where available), MLB Network (out of market only)Related Articles
