Steve Kerr says ‘it’s a shame’ for Chris Paul to suffer another injury

When the Houston Rockets take the floor for Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals against the Golden State Warriors, the team will be without the services of All-Star point guard Chris Paul due to a right hamstring injury. It puts him out of the mix for possibly the biggest game of his career with […] The post Steve Kerr says ‘it’s a shame’ for Chris Paul to suffer another injury appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Contrary to the popular belief, Chris Paul sitting out Game 6 is a positive thing for the Rockets

There is no embellishment to Chris Paul’s first half performance against the Warriors – he started the game cold as an ex’s heart, hitting zero of his first seven shots. But then, as the Rockets headed into the locker room at the half, Paul must have gotten a hold of some of that Michael’s Secret...

Injured star Chris Paul on Rockets bench, hoping to find a way to help even while out

OAKLAND, Calif. - Though Rockets guard Chris Paul was ruled out for Saturday's game on Friday, there was never much consideration given to having him remain in Houston to treat his sore right hamstring. The Rockets were sure he could get the same treatment on the road as at home with nothing as beneficial...

Brad Ziegler bashed by Nats in frustrating 4-1 loss

Brad Ziegler bashed by Nats in frustrating 4-1 loss

Marlins are running out of reasons to continue using the veteran in high-leverage situations. Unemployed until the injury-depleted Nationals gave him a call last month, Mark Reynolds led the visitors to a 4-1 win on Saturday afternoon. His assist to cut down pinch-runner Cameron Maybin at home plate preserved a 1-1 tie in the eighth inning. Then, leading off the ninth, Reynolds’ solo shot to left field against Brad Ziegler put the Nats ahead for good. Aside from the rally against Ziegler (whose earned run average swelled to 7.54 this season), Marlins pitching was superb. Wei-Yin Chen...

Cubs roster move: Chris Gimenez recalled, Victor Caratini to Iowa

The Cubs apparently want the veteran presence. In a bit of a surprise, the Cubs have switched backup catchers before Saturday's game: #Cubs roster moves: Gimenez selected from Iowa, Caratini to Iowa and Navarro DFA— Carrie Muskat (@CarrieMuskat) May 26, 2018 My guess is, the Cubs wanted the veteran presence of Chris Gimenez behind Willson Contreras, as well as possibly having Gimenez catch Yu Darvish, who's scheduled to start tomorrow. Gimenez isn't hitting much at Iowa, just .224/.316/.276, but I suspect the Cubs wanted his defense. Also: Gimenez had out in his contract and...

Five things we learned from the first week of Dolphins’ OTAs

Ryan Tannehill is “back from the dead” We all remember last season when Dolphins’ quarterback Ryan Tannehill was sitting in the cafeteria, watching helplessly as his teammates practiced on the field outside. It was a perfect representation of the 2017 season. After all, last season was a disaster without Tannehill at the helm. He is back and ready to go. During his first press conference in quite sometime, Tannehill appeared to be in good spirits, telling reporters he was “back from the dead”. The entire season’s success rests solely on him and whether or not he can...

Warriors vs. Rockets, Game 6 second half thread

The Warriors were lucky to be within 10 in the second quarter after a pretty bad first quarter. The Golden State Warriors had a rough start in the first quarter of Game 6 and find themselves down 61-51 to the Houston Rockets at halftime. Yes, the Warriors found a way to score less points than the Rockets without Chris Paul. If I were to summarize the first half in a tweet, I’d probably do so like this: Warriors can go to the rim almost whenever they want against this team...they need to stop chucking & do so.— CollaborativeBlogger (@NateP_SBN) May 27, 2018 The Warriors continue...
