The Portland Trail Blazers’ season ended on a down note, as the Golden State Warriors swept them in the first round of the NBA playoffs.
But that short playoff run will pay dividends for many members of the Trail Blazers’ organization.
When Howard was told that he came up as flagged for not having insurance and a suspended registration, the Hawks big man seemed confused and insisted he had insurance, according to the police report. But Howard was unable to present an insurance card to the officer.
Howard was issued a citation for not having insurance and received a verbal warning for speeding, even though he was going 95 mph in a 65 mph zone.
His car, a 2016 Audi Rs7, was impounded. The Hawks declined comment about the incident.
They’re playing so much harder and with so much more passion than us right now, Clippers coach Doc Rivers said during his in-game interview with ESPN after the first quarter. We gotta get involved in this game, or this score’s gonna continue to grow.
The Clippers found an answer, trimming the Jazz lead down to single digits before halftime. Unfortunately for LA, the team had to do so without Blake Griffin, who injured his right big toe in the second quarter and did not return to the game. (The Clippers later announced Griffin will miss the rest of the playoffs.) So what do you do with one of your best players sidelined? You give the ball to Chris Paul, and you get the hell out of the way.
