Clippers coach Doc Rivers: Video of altercation between sheriff and Masai Ujiri ‘very hurtful to watch’

first_img Game 4 photos: Luka Doncic, Mavs shock Clippers in overtime Clippers’ Paul George: ‘If I make shots, this series could be a little different’ For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory Mavs coach Rick Carlisle — who opened his pregame videoconference with the media by sharing some history of the anniversary of Nat Turner’s Rebellion, which began Aug. 21 1831 — said he found the footage of the sheriff deputy’s treatment of Ujiri “terrible.”“All the guy wants to do is get with his team to celebrate a championship,” Carlisle said. “It’s a visible, modern-day example of racial injustice and it’s appalling.”BEVERLEY OUT AGAINThe Clippers were forced to go forth without Patrick Beverley again on Friday, as the defensive pest was sidelined for the second consecutive game with a left calf strain — the same injury that kept him out of five of his team’s bubble seeding games.Without him on the floor, the Clippers are 11-11 this season. With him, they’re 39-13.“He’s getting better, I guess, would be the best way to phrase it,” said Rivers, who typically isn’t specific about players’ injuries.This season, the 6-foot-1 guard is averaging 7.9 points, 3.6 assists, 5.2 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game. He’s also shooting 53.3% from 3-point range in the 11 games he’s played since the All-Star break.Second-year shooting guard Landry Shamet got the start in Beverley’s place Friday.Related Articles The lawsuit Strickland filed in February alleged that Ujiri assaulted him and, as a result, that Strickland “suffered injury to his body, health, strength, activity and person, all of which have caused and continue to cause Plaintiff great mental, emotional, psychological, physical, and nervous pain and suffering.”But Ujiri’s countersuit — which includes the Raptors, the NBA and Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment as plaintiffs — claims that Strickland falsified the encounter and that he attempted to portray Ujiri as “the initial aggressor,” calling Strickland’s account “a complete fabrication.”Rivers suggested that there’s even more to the video that backs up Ujiri’s claim.“If you’ve seen the whole video, which I don’t think a lot of people have seen yet, the cop was nice, nice, nice and then here comes this one Black man with a suit,” Rivers said. “It’s just really sad. Winning a title is so emotional — I don’t think people who aren’t in (the league) can ever understand it, and to have that taken away, it’s just really sad.” What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 Clippers coach Doc Rivers said that even before it was released publicly this week, he’d seen the video footage showing the altercation between Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri and a San Francisco-area sheriff’s deputy after the clinching moment of last season’s NBA Finals.“Masai and I are very close,” Rivers said, on Zoom, before the Clippers faced the Dallas Mavericks in Game 3 of their Western Conference first-round playoffs series Friday in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.“He had shared the video with me. It was just sad to see. It was actually very hurtful to watch that video,” the 21st-year coach continued. “A man is at the pinnacle of his career at that moment, you know, walking out on the floor to celebrate with his team. They had just won the NBA championship and he had to be reminded, once again, what his color was. And it’s just so sad.”Also Tuesday, Ujiri reportedly countersued the deputy, Alan Strickland, who is shown on the video shoving the Raptors official and telling him to “back the f— up” as Ujiri attempted to gain access to the court.

Lakers ride veterans to beat Suns for only victory of 4-game trip

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersThat meant Lonzo Ball, the Lakers star rookie two games removed from becoming the youngest player in NBA history to notch a triple-double, watched from the bench for the final 14:47. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who added 15 points, nine rebounds and two steals, did not play in the fourth quarter.“We got a win,” Ball said, “so I got no complaints. My teammates got it done in the fourth and we had to at least get one on this road trip.”Playing their fourth consecutive game on the road and seeking their first win since leaving home a week earlier, the Lakers were desperate for a win. Walton, who has stressed process over winning games, stuck with the group that was hot.“It’s tough and it’s a feel thing,” he said. “Brewer and Clarkson were both incredible tonight. They had been out there, and they were working hard.” It took some work to slow the Suns’ dynamic offense. Devin Booker poured in 36 points on 14-of-27 shooting.“That team scores a lot of points and they’re … talented man,” Walton said. “They’ve got some … young men there that can really get going.”After scoring 29 points and finishing one assist shy of a triple-double in the previous matchup with Phoenix, Ball finished with seven points, five rebounds and five assists.The night featured some added theatrics late in the game when Booker had to be held back from the Lakers’ bench due to what Caldwell-Pope called “a couple of words” in the “heat of the moment.”Booker told reporters after the game it was trash talk from one of the Lakers’ coaches that set him off.“I don’t know who it was,” he said. “I’m not here to tell on anybody. If you’re not my coach, I don’t know you. Don’t say anything to me.”The young Suns and Lakers have a history of bad blood, after Larry Nance Jr. mixed things up with Booker in their last meeting after a hard foul on Brewer.After years of jockeying for position in the draft lottery, maybe these two teams just can’t get along.Since they last met less than four weeks earlier, the Suns fired their coach, traded their point guard and had begun to resemble an actual NBA team. Even defensively.The Lakers, too, had risen toward the top of the NBA with their defense, spent a couple of days with a .500 record. Then, they promptly lost three in a row on a grueling trip. In a week, they played games in three time zones.“I felt like our guys were a little dead tonight from the end of a road trip and we were trying to find that energy,” Walton said.He found it with Brewer.“When Corey got in there and got going,” he said. “He lifts the spirits of the guys.”And if it comes at the expense of a young star like Ball, that’s just part of the game.“The way the NBA’s supposed to work and has worked, as long as I can remember,” Walton said, “is young players come in and sit. And they watch vets do it, and they watch how vets do it. …“For any of our young guys to sit there and if a vet’s having a good game like Brewer was tonight, seeing how hard he works and seeing how he stayed ready even though he hadn’t been playing big minutes, is part of the developmental plan for them.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img PreviousLos Angeles Lakers guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (1) grabs the ball away from Phoenix Suns forward TJ Warren (12) during the first half of an NBA basketball game Monday, Nov. 13, 2017, in Phoenix.

Jordan Clarkson would knock down a jumper or Corey Brewer would poke the ball away on defense. When it was over, the Lakers held on to beat Phoenix 100-93 and it was their bench players who carried them to victory.It was in stark contrast to the teams’ previous matchup on Oct. 20, when they combined to score 262 points in a two-point Lakers win.This time, Clarkson scored a team-high 25 points off the bench, while Brewer added 13 points in 18 minutes and Brandon Ingram handled the ball late in the game.last_img read more

The Board transfers to the RFEF that the Cup final wait “until it can be played with the public”

Jury deliberations start in murder trial

first_imgNORWALK – Prosecutors and defense attorneys wrapped up their arguments and jurors began deliberating Thursday in a murder trial in which the defendant allegedly bragged about the shooting in a letter. Defense attorney Robert Conley told Norwalk Superior Court jurors that his client shot Oscar Rubio, 26, of Whittier in self-defense. Randy Aguila, 20, of Whittier is charged with murder in the car-to-car shooting Sept. 22. After the shooting, Rubio’s car continued driving, crashed through a fence and drove into the parking lot of Aida S. Nelson Elementary School. Deputy District Attorney Doug Herring gave jurors his version of events before the shooting. He said Aguila’s car was blocking traffic near Godoy Street and Vicki Drive, where he was talking to a group of friends. Herring said Aguila is a member of a Los Nietos gang that claims the area as its territory. Rubio had just finished having lunch at his mother’s house nearby and was on his way to work when he encountered the blocked street. Witnesses testified they heard yelling between the cars. “The defendant pulled his gun up to his lap,” Herring said. “He said, `Where are you from?’ He was asking if he had a gang affiliation. The defendant has already decided he is going to shoot. He had the gun on his lap. He confirmed Mr. Rubio was not from his gang. Anybody else is going to die.” Conley said Aguila was terrified after Rubio yelled at him, making him afraid for his safety. He said Rubio threatened Aguila and was getting out of his car to attack the defendant. He said Aguila fired in Rubio’s direction to protect himself. He asked the jury to find Aguila not guilty by reason of self-defense. Aguila has no prior criminal record. sandy.mazza@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3026160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
