You could just feel the game didn’t have a lot of energy in it,” Rivers said. “We told our guys, you want to honor (Bryant), go win the game, and they did that.“We’re not prepared for this, none of us were. A lot of relationships Kobe had with guys in our locker room. I was worried. I didn’t know if our guys could get through it.”No Clippers were available after the game, but Magic forward Aaron Gordon expressed the players’ point of view.“It was just hard, but at the end of the day we’ve got to go out there and do our job,” Gordon said. “It’s what he would have wanted.”Leonard scored seven straight points for the Clippers in the big third quarter to help Los Angeles stretch a four-point lead to 10.

  • Sindhu storms into semi-finals; Narsingh’s dope saga continues

    first_imgRELATED SHARE sport One of the best moments of my career, says Sindhu pv Video: Sindhu reaches badminton semifinal in Rio 2016 COMMENT SHARE SHARE EMAIL × Rio 2016: Faster, Higher, Stronger Shuttlers Sindhu, Srikanth bring some cheer to Indian camp at Rio null Published on COMMENTS pv August 17, 2016 Dipa misses bronze by a whisker Injured Saina crashes out as India faces multiple setbacks Shuttler PV Sindhu raised serious hopes of breaking India’s long-awaited medal quest in the Rio Olympics by storming into the semi-finals of the women’s singles event with a stunning straight games win over London Games silver medallist Wang Yihan of China, here.The two-time World Championship bronze medallist Sindhu, who came into the match with a 2-4 head-to-head record, dished out a compact game to outmanoeuvre the more experienced Wang 22—20 21—19 in a gruelling battle lasting 54 minutes.The 21—year—old Indian now stands just a win away from assuring India an elusive medal at the Rio Olympics.With the memorable win, Sindhu became the second Indian badminton player to reach an Olympic semi-final after Saina Nehwal achieved the feat four years ago.Sindhu’s win has overshadowed the fresh saga surrounding India’s floundering campaign at the Rio Games on day 11 after the World Anti-Doping Agency lodged an appeal with the Court of Arbitration for Sports against the clean chit given to wrestler Narsingh Yadav by NADA in the dope scandal back home.“WADA has appealed against the NADA (National Anti-Doping Agency) clearance in the Court of Arbitration (CAS). The hearing is on and the IOA Secretary General (Rajeev Mehta) is there with WADA officials,” Indian contingent’s chef-de-mission Rakesh Gupta told PTI.If CAS upholds WADA’s appeal, Narsingh, who is scheduled to fight in the 74kg freestyle category on August 19, will not only be able to take part in the Games here but could also face a career-threatening four—year ban.Enduring a disastrous campaign thus far, the medal-less Indian contingent has been pinning its hopes mainly on shuttlers Sindhu and Kidambi Srikanth, besides its wrestlers — including world championship bronze medal winner Narsingh — to end the drought before the disheartening development.Eleven days of action have failed to bring India that won a record six medals in London four years ago, a single podium finish and there’s growing desperation to end this poor run.India’s campaign now has been reduced to three disciplines — track and field, badminton and wrestling — after the flop show put up by the contingent in other sports.It’s woes continued on day 11 today when Hardeep Singh lost 1—2 in his opening encounter against Turkey’s Ildem Cenk in the Greco-Roman 98kg category.And adding to the miserable run was the news that some of its contingent members were served only “peanuts” at a dinner party organised by the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports here on Independence Day, after having skipped dinner at the Games Village.Having conquered world no. 2 Yihan, India’s hopes now rest on Sindhu, who will face the winners of the last quarter-final between Japan’s Akane Yamaguchi and Nozomi Okuhara on August 18 for a place in the gold medal encounter.The lanky shuttler from Hyderabad and Srikanth, who made it to the men’s singles quarters, are the only two medal contenders left in the badminton competition after the shock elimination of last Games bronze medallist and former world no. 1 Saina Nehwal two days ago.last_img read more
