Denver 87, Clippers 81, the morning after:• Emanuel Mudiay, Denver’s rookie point guard, hit two key free throws with 25.5 seconds left for the final margin. It’s still too early to tell if the Lakers did the right thing when they drafted D’Angelo Russell instead of Mudiay, who was 1 for 12 from the field Wednesday and is shooting 34.3 from the field and 27.2 from the 3-point line. Mudiay has a staggering total of 150 turnovers in 43 games, but he had none Wednesday, and his assist-turnover ratio is better than Russell’s. Mudiay also plays nearly three more minutes per game than does Russell, who is shooting 41.7 percent from the floor.• Denver coach Michael Malone described Mudiay’s play as “night and day” from the beginning of the season, but says Mudiay must improve his shooting. “Everybody’s going underneath the screens on him,” Malone said. Mudiay looked more promising than Russell in the summer leagues, but the best assessment is that both Mudiay and Russell and most of the rest of the rookie class belongs in college.• Denver ranks 30th, or last, in the NBA when it comes to blocking shots. So the Clippers, incredibly, launched a franchise-record 46 3-pointers in this loss, hitting 13. Doc Rivers seemed fine with the strategy, since the “right people” were taking the 3s. But J.J. Redick pointed out that the Nuggets were leaving the Clippers open so they could send extra defenders at DeAndre Jordan when he worked the pick-and-rolls with Chris Paul. It worked, with Jordan going 2 for 5. Paul, Redick and J.J. Crawford shot 12 for 27 from the three and the Clippers still got held to 81 points. • It was the Nuggets’ first road win over a likely playoff team since Dec. 3 at Toronto.• Danilo Gallinari is having a quietly productive year for Denver, averaging 19.8 points. The Italian had 16 with eight rebounds and took a crucial charge from Jeff Green in the final half-minute.• “I said before the game we needed to bring our own energy,” said Paul, who was wary of the laid-back atmosphere following the Clippers’ 40-point win over Phoenix on Monday.• Then again, Redick reminded everyone: “The really great teams find a way to win games like this.”• It was generally agreed that the Clippers made it difficult on themselves in the final 2:41 of the second quarter, when Denver went on a 14-0 lead and took a 14-point lead. Kenneth Faried had two offensive rebound buckets in that span and a hook shot. “He was phenomenal tonight, a huge reason why we had the lead at halftime,” Malone said. • Another byproduct of the Clippers’ 3-point habit was their inability to reach the foul line. They had only 14 tries and made eight, and Paul had only two.• Paul Pierce is shooting 11 for 32 in his past five games. Rivers blamed himself for giving Pierce “inconsistent minutes” earlier in the season.• Paul caught an elbow to the forearm and had it wrapped after the game, and has a lingering calf problem, but said everything was fine. • The Nuggets outrebounded the Clippers by 16 in the first half and by 10 for the game, and won the points-in-the-paint battle by a margin of 44-22.• “We played with the right intentions,” Rivers said. “We just missed wide-open shot after wide-open shot. We missed shots and got frustrated, but I really didn’t think it was one of those games where we just didn’t show up to play.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
MORE: Rhule SN’s college Coach of the Year for 2019″But other than that, I would much rather talk to those guys and kind of get a feel for not just Cam but all those players on the roster and really have a good process moving forward for the entire roster.”Rhule added to NFL Network: “At the end of the day I know this: I know you need to win with a quarterback. And I know Cam’s done a lot of winning and so I look forward to working with him, but at the same time I’ll talk to our ownership and GM and kind of really establish all the guys in the locker room — him [and backups] Kyle Allen and Will Grier as well.” Carolina Panthers coach Matt Rhule refused to comment on Cam Newton’s future with the club, saying it is too early to decide on the team’s quarterback situation.Rhule was introduced as the Panthers’ new coach Wednesday after Ron Rivera’s sacking in December, and attention quickly turned to Newton. Newton endured another injury-marred season, with the 2015 NFL MVP making just two appearances due to a foot problem as the Panthers finished 5-11.DIAMOND: Rhule contract puts pressure on Tepper to show he’s not cluelessThere are doubts about the 30-year-old Newton — who can become a free agent in 2021 — but Rhule said he needs time to study the Panthers’ roster.”I probably haven’t had a chance with regards to really any player to get to talk to [Panthers general manager] Marty [Hurney] and [team owner David] Tepper in terms of long-term vision, so I would never want to speak out of school or uneducatedly,” said first-time NFL coach Rhule, who arrived from Baylor.”What I will say is this: I had a chance to talk to Cam [on Tuesday], and I have the utmost respect for him and what he’s done, and I love the way he talked to me, to be quite honest. He didn’t want to talk about the past. He wanted to talk about the future.

Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) president, Captain Horace Burrell, said his hands are clean and does not fear being prosecuted in connection with the ongoing investigations into corruption at football’s world governing body FIFA and has vowed to oversee changes that will restore CONCACAF’s reputation. Since May this year, two presidents – Jeffrey Webb and Alfredo Hawit – of CONCACAF, the confederation representing football bodies from the Caribbean and North and Central America, have been arrested as the United States Justice Department in conjunction with Swiss authorities investigate malfeasance amounting to hundreds of millions of dollars. Webb, who was arrested in May, and Hawit, jailed in early December, were among an estimated 30 football officials who were arrested between May and December this year. Webb has pleaded not guilty to corruption charges in US Federal Court. Arising from the arrests, Burrell, a close friend and business partner of Webb, was among several officials appointed to an executive committee at CONCACAF that will oversee the running of the confederation until elections are held in May 2016. Asked if there were fears among the committee members about further arrests, Burrell said he was not fearful of being implicated of anything sinister. “I can only speak for myself; I have absolutely no fear or concerns and I am sure my other colleagues would feel the same way, but you just can’t swear for anyone in this case, so we just have to hope,” he said. Meanwhile, he said CONCACAF executives have been aggressively pursuing solutions to the ongoing crisis that will ensure that in future the organisation will not have to endure the embarrassment of the ongoing situation. He claims proposed reforms being pursued within CONCACAF will exceed those being put in place at FIFA. “It is now said CONCACAF are the trendsetters for the reform process because we are going deeper in some of the areas than FIFA is,” he said. “So currently, we are on track to repair the image, to rebuild the image and to chart a course that will see us not getting back into this situation. “Whoever goes there eventually will not have an opportunity to slip back into what has caused us to be in this position.”

ALL FOR NAUGHTMessi did his part, and then some.At 29 years old, Messi had another superb individual season worthy of the player widely considered to be the best in the world.The club’s all-time top scorer broke the 50-goal barrier for the fifth time in his career, scoring a league-high 37 goals to go with 16 in other competitions.Beyond the goals, he was the team’s best playmaker, showing his unequaled sense of knowing when to fall back into midfield to pass, and when he needed to take it straight at the defense.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES A coach who says he is tired of managing is not the ideal candidate to rally the troops. Luis Enrique even admitted he was burned out midway through the season.The former Barcelona midfielder will leave the club following three seasons that can only be judged as very successful despite his team’s dip in form during his last year.Under Luis Enrique, Barcelona has won the Champions League, the Club World Cup, two Spanish leagues and a pair of Copa del Rey titles.It will have a chance for a third Copa del Rey when it plays Alaves in the final on Saturday in Luis Enrique’s last match.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Those extra options let Iniesta play only the important games, and start in just 13 of 38 matches.But the plan backfired when his substitutes failed to come even close to replicating his passing and playmaking skills.That meant Barcelona lost its signature dominance in midfield, leaving its defense exposed to too many counterattacks while Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar waited too long to get the ball.___MISSED OPPORTUNITYIf there is one date when Barcelona had the perfect chance to catch Madrid and take control of the title race it was April 8.Madrid stumbled at home against crosstown rival Atletico Madrid, which earned a 1-1 draw on a late goal by Antoine Griezmann. That opened the door for Barcelona to move in front if it could win at Malaga hours later.Instead, Barcelona self-destructed, falling 2-0 after Neymar was sent off for two senseless yellow cards.___TIRED COACH Cayetano dares Lacson, Drilon to take lie-detector test: Wala akong kinita sa SEA Games SEA Games: PH beats Indonesia, enters gold medal round in polo But the statistics didn’t mean much in the end because those great numbers and Messi’s continued excellence couldn’t compensate for costly losses to underdog sides and the subpar contribution of Barcelona’s role players.The Catalan club rallied from two goals down to beat Eibar 4-2 on Sunday at Camp Nou, but Madrid won 2-0 at Malaga to finish three points ahead.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingHere’s a look at Messi’s season and how his team let him down:___ Hornets beat Pistons for 8th straight time Lillard, Anthony lead Blazers over Thunder Pagasa: Kammuri now a typhoon, may enter PAR by weekend Messi added another memorable match to his archive by upstaging Cristiano Ronaldo in a thrilling 3-2 victory at Madrid in April, when he scored a brilliant equalizer to make it 1-1 before snatching the victory with a stoppage-time goal to stun the crowd at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.___SLOW STARTBarcelona only won three of its first seven home matches, digging itself a hole that it could never recover from.But of its four losses this season, the one it will rue the most was a perplexing 2-1 defeat to promoted Alaves back in September at the Camp Nou.That stumble proved to be the only home loss of the season, and those three points ended up making the difference.___IRREPLACEABLE INIESTABarcelona coach Luis Enrique had the plan to not overwork Andres Iniesta, who was entering his 15th season at the age of 32.So last offseason, the club brought in reinforcements Andre Gomes and Denis Suarez to help Sergi Busquets, Ivan Rakitic, Rafinha and Arda Turan give Iniesta time off.
