Warriors vs. Clippers on Saturday afternoon

Warriors vs. Clippers on Saturday afternoon
warriors-vs-clippers-on-saturday-afternoon

 news and analysis on Saturday at 12:30 p.m. when the Warriors look for their 12th straight win over the Clippers when the teams meet at Staples Center.,Get live updates

The Warriors (31-8) may be without Kevin Durant (strained calf) again Saturday, Milos Teodosic (aggravated plantar fascia) to go along with previously sidelined Danilo Gallinari (torn left gluteus maximus) and Patrick Beverley (season-ending knee injury)., but the Clippers have the market cornered on injuries as they’ll be missing guards Austin Rivers (ankle strain)

The Clippers (17-20), though, Blake Griffin has averaged 23.5 points in his four games since returning from a month-long absence with a knee injury., have played well and just had a four-game winning streak snapped by Oklahoma City on Thursday. The still-healthy DeAndre Jordan had 26 points and 17 rebounds in the 127-117 loss. Plus

Still,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/james-conner-jersey-cheap]Womens James Conner Jersey[/url], they haven’t beaten the Warriors since 2014., it doesn’t bode well for a Clippers squad that hasn’t been able to deal with the Warriors even when at full strength. The Clippers have lost their last six games in L.A. to the Warriors. In fact

Golden State is coming off an impressive 124-114 win over Houston on Thursday that featured Draymond Green’s franchise-record 21st triple-double.

 and they seem quite confident about their chances to run the table in other people’s buildings on the way to Minneapolis.,The Falcons already nabbed the first victory by spoiling a festive night in Los Angeles

 and the defending NFC champion Falcons advanced from the wild-card round with a 26-13 victory over the upstart Rams on Saturday night.,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/]Womens Joshua Dobbs Jersey[/url],Matt Ryan passed for 218 yards and hit Julio Jones for an 8-yard touchdown with 5:48 to play

 who dropped to the sixth seed in the conference after finishing one game out of first place in the NFC South. Atlanta went only 5-3 on the road in the regular season.,Devonta Freeman rushed for an early score and Matt Bryant kicked four field goals for the Falcons (11-6)

 that tough division race and last season’s deep playoff run prepared Atlanta for the grind necessary to win back-to-back NFC titles.,But judging from a comprehensively solid performance against the hungry Rams (11-6)

“We don’t care where we play these games, because we know it’s about us,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/artie-burns-jersey-cheap]Womens Artie Burns Jersey[/url],” Atlanta safety Ricardo Allen said., not the crowd or the opponent

The next place they’re headed is Philadelphia: The Falcons advanced to face the top-seeded Eagles on Jan. 13.

 we’re going,“Doesn’t matter where we’re going,” Ryan said. “And that’s the most exciting part.”

Atlanta’s journey to the Super Bowl last season ended infamously with that blown 28-3 lead against New England. In their first playoff game since, the Falcons spoiled the Rams’ first playoff game in 13 years with a methodical performance derived from hard-earned experience.

The Falcons’ defense held the NFL’s highest-scoring offense to one touchdown while muzzling Todd Gurley and harassing Jared Goff,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/javon-hargrave-jersey-cheap]Authentic Javon Hargrave Jerse[/url], who went 24 for 45 in his playoff debut.

 which never trailed while winning playoff games in consecutive seasons for the first time in franchise history. Against an opponent that had just six players on its roster with prior postseason appearances,Jones caught nine passes for 94 yards for Atlanta, the Falcons’ experience showed through.

“I think having gone through these situations, you’ve got to execute.”,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/bud-dupree-jersey-cheap]Womens Bud Dupree Jersey[/url], the atmosphere, those kinds of things, knowing that it’s going to be tough, all those things kind of carry forward, understanding what it’s like,” Ryan said. “But at the end of the day, experience or no experience

300 packed the Coliseum on a crisp evening for the first NFL playoff game in the nation’s second-largest city since early 1994. Los Angeles went 21 years without pro football before the Rams returned last season,A raucous crowd of 74, and the franchise emphatically ended a 13-year streak of non-winning seasons this fall with an inspiring run to the Rams’ first division title since 2003.

 but rookie Cooper Kupp scored the Rams’ only touchdown late in the first half. Pro Bowl kick returner Pharoh Cooper also muffed a punt and fumbled a kickoff return early,Robert Woods caught nine passes for 142 yards, leading to 10 points for the Falcons.

 who rebounded from a rough homecoming season in 2016 with an outstanding debut year under 31-year-old Sean McVay, the youngest head coach to reach the playoffs in NFL history. A celebrity-studded crowd attended the game and watched a halftime performance from Long Beach’s own Snoop Dogg,The Falcons ruined a celebratory night for the Rams, but the Rams couldn’t come through.

“You see why the Falcons are the defending NFC champs,” McVay said. “Certainly this is a humbling game. … This is an experience that we can learn from. But I don’t think this game was too big for our guys.”

The Rams are just 4-11 at the Coliseum since returning to LA last season.

 patiently running the ball with Freeman and Tevin Coleman. The Rams’ defense simply couldn’t get off the field in the third quarter,The Falcons dominated the game by controlling the ball for 37:35, whether due to missed tackles or clever play-calling by the Falcons.

 and many players changed cleats at halftime to combat the conditions. The field at the venerable stadium isn’t known for being particularly bad,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/sean-davis-jersey-cheap]Womens Sean Davis Jersey[/url],The Coliseum turf was noticeably slippery for both teams, but new sod and January dew apparently made it more perilous than usual.

” Falcons receiver Mohamed Sanu said. “We saw it wasn’t good conditions early,“We had to be prepared for everything, so we had our minds ready for it.”

 and the Falcons eliminated him from the passing game almost entirely,Gurley got just 43 of his 101 yards rushing in the first three quarters, giving up only four receptions for 10 yards despite 10 targets of the NFL’s leader in yards from scrimmage.

The cousin of that quip: We love being bamboozled even more. The 2018 NFL Playoffs prove it. A quick survey of betting odds and “expert” predictions show that we’re utterly clueless.

 three of the four home teams were favored by at least six points — the Rams were relatively small favorites at -4.5. All four of the lines moved higher over the course of the week,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/artie-burns-jersey-cheap]Authentic Artie Burns Jersey[/url],On Monday before Wild Card weekend, which is to say that bets were coming in slanted toward the favorites. I’m in a picks pool where approximately two-thirds of players picked all four favorites to win.

 all four underdogs covered the spread. Two of them won outright,Of course, the Falcons by 13 (which means they beat the spread by 19 points).

 but this apparently senseless chaos serves the NFL,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/]Authentic Joshua Dobbs Jersey[/url], and the best explanation is a fanbase that secretly relishes the sense of confusion; a fanbase that actually likes to be wrong. It’s why the savvy NFL decision-makers have pushed for parity — because the closer everyone is to each other,It may be counter-intuitive, the harder it is to know what the heck is going to happen.

 the NFL is operating at peak level right now. Not only do we have the aforementioned inscrutability of the results,Viewed through that prism,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/javon-hargrave-jersey-cheap]Womens Javon Hargrave Jersey[/url], we have quarterbacks — the most focus-grabbing and debate-inducing position in sports — who provide a noteworthy quantity of mystery and unpredictability on a play-to-play basis.

 Marcus Mariota (whose inconsistency is as maddening as his talent is tantalizing), and Blake Bortles (case in point). Defending MVP Matt Ryan has looked lost at times this year without Kyle Shanahan at the helm. Likely Hall-of-Famer Ben Roethlisberger literally said,The Divisional Round will feature Nick Foles (a backup bad enough to turn a significant favorite into the biggest underdog in the playoffs), [url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/sean-davis-jersey-cheap]Authentic Sean Davis Jersey[/url],“Maybe I don’t have it anymore” after the last time he played Jacksonville.

 and the internet this week should be replete with takes about how most of the weekend’s football was crappy. But the truth is,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/senquez-golson-jersey-cheap]Authentic Senquez Golson Jersey[/url],NFL Twitter was littered with complaints about QB play Sunday, we love this stuff. Perhaps we’ll experience some disgust that a clearly

mediocre team like the Tennessee Titans has somehow advanced to the second round of the playoffs, but we wouldn’t have it any other way.

 least-nuanced instincts for entertainment,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/bud-dupree-jersey-cheap]Authentic Bud Dupree Jersey[/url], that’s par for the course. Ultimately,If this particular quality of the NFL appeals to our basest, isn’t the popularity of this league just an expression of our national desire to yell at the television screen, whether out of anger or excitement?

This is already a game that admittedly (after years of denials) puts the health and safety of its athletes in great peril. In the Saints-Panthers game alone we saw a 24-year-old rookie break his fibula and a former NFL MVP skirt the concussion protocol to lead a potential game-winning drive.

 despite greedy owners treating players like objects and despite not having the slightest inkling of what a catch is; if we don’t outright enjoy all of those alleged deficits,We have persisted in watching the NFL more than anything else despite domestic abuse scandals, we certainly enjoy screaming about them between Sundays.

The NFL-consuming public is here for the drama. It’s here to be fooled. It’s here to declare a game over at halftime only to watch Marcus Mariota lead a historical comeback by playing quarterback and wide receiver on the same absurd touchdown play.

 generally speaking. But in July of 1999, I walked into a theater with some friends to see a little flick called The Blair Witch Project. In the mostly pre-internet age,I’m not a horror movie fan, I knew nothing about it except that it got a good review and someone in the group wanted to see it.

The Falcons have won the past four meetings, the most recent being a 42-14 victory in 2016. But these are two vastly different teams now.
