After a campaign lost through injury and exodus, 2020-21 should see a return to relevance to the Golden State Warrior. Another championship contender on the bay old school Splash Brothers style.
But like so much in 2020, those plans went up in smoke, largely thanks to the off-season Achilles tear that Klay Thompson suffered from. It’s a devastating setback that will cost him a second straight season after losing to a torn ACL in 2019-20.
Two games in the season against two of the top teams in the East and the Warriors look much closer to the lottery than a return to championship form. Golden State followed Thursday’s loss to the Brooklyn Nets with a dud to the Milwaukee Bucks on Christmas Day, a 138-99 setback that suggests the Warriors are unwilling to attend a loaded Western Conference.
Stephen Curry, the two-time MVP and sole prop on the floor of the Golden State championship’s heyday, is frustrated.
« I don’t know, » Curry continued. “We just have to focus more on what we’re trying to do. Sometimes when you miss shots you tend to force and push rather than think.
“Our group’s collective IQ needs to get a lot better in the moments when you’re not taking pictures. ”
Thompson and Kevin Durant, who look very much like an MVP contender with the Nets in their first few games after his own crush injury, have disappeared from the 2019 Warriors final. You obviously don’t go through the door.
Draymond Green was also missing. A slight foot injury was reported at the 0-2 start. He is expected to return soon, possibly for Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bulls.
In their place are Andrew Wiggins, Kelly Oubre Jr. . and rookie James Wiseman. With a nod to Wiseman’s more than promising start, this is a core that failed to live up to expectations in two games, let alone fill the shoes of its all-NBA predecessors.
Wiggins was acquired last season to fill the massive void left on the grand piano by the late Durant and to ensure that Golden State generates a long-term return on its investment in D’Angelo Russell. The former no. It was never expected, of course, that an overall selection would replace Durant.
But it should be better than this one. Wiggins continued his 4-of-16 performance on opening night with another disaster from the field on Friday. He scored 12 points against the bucks on 6 of 18 shooting, including missed shots on all four of his 3-point attempts.
Oubre was somehow worse. Former Phoenix Sun, won after the Thompson injury this off-season, scored three points in a 10-1 shootout from the field at Christmas. He missed all five of his 3-point attempts. Friday’s game followed a 3:14 attempt against the nets. He’s not a splash brother.
Wiseman created the beacon of hope in this slow start of the warriors. The rookie center averages 18. 5 points, seven rebounds and 1. 5 blocks in his short NBA tenure while connecting 4 of 5 3-point attempts. It’s the inside-out game the Warriors relied on when they took the athletic 7-footer to the No.. 1 did. Select 2 in the draft.
But a rookie center that shows up isn’t enough to make Golden State competitive, especially if Curry doesn’t resemble its earlier form. The Warriors’ Sharpshooter connects to just 34. 2% of his field goal attempts, a rate that is burdened by a 4 out of 20 attempt from 3 point distance in two games.
Certainly better to come from Curry, who missed all but five games with a broken hand last season. Oubre and Wiggins need to improve too. How could they not?
But even then, it is difficult to imagine that this version of the warriors poses any threat in the west.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.. . J. . – Baker Mayfield coughed the ball – and the Cleveland Browns’ chances of securing a place in the playoffs. After a 23:16 loss to the New York Jets on Sunday, the Browns will have to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers next Sunday to end the NFL’s longest playoff drought. In the fourth and first game, with 1:18 points remaining and the understaffed Browns (10-5) battling for the potential draw, Mayfield tried to push forward but lost the ball when Tarell hit Basham. Kareem Hunt recovered, but usually Mayfield was the only one who could push the ball forward – and the quarterback was close to first relegation. The call was confirmed by video review and the Jets (2-13) sealed their second straight win from a 0-13 start. It’s been a rough week for the Browns, who have been out of the postseason since 2002 and entered without seven players, including Jarvis Landry and three other wide receivers. The rookie left Jedrick Wills. Cleveland had to call several players from the training team, and coach Kevin Stefanski ran through a parking lot near the team’s hotel to keep some of the new players updated on the game plan. Even though the Browns were understaffed, they nearly eliminated a 20-3 deficit. But the jets could hold out. At the start of the fourth quarter, the Browns were third and sixth of their 15 when Basham fired Mayfield and knocked out the ball. John Franklin-Myers recovered and gave the Jets the ball at the Browns 17 with 3:14. Sam Ficken’s 34-yard field goal with a 2:52 lead gave New York 23-16 the lead. Fucking upset the following kick-off and gave Cleveland the ball at 40. The Browns got on 16 until the defense went big again to end it. New York took the second overall victory in the April draft. Jamison Crowder caught a touchdown pass and tossed a touchdown pass to Braxton Berrios, and Sam Darnold tossed a touchdown pass to Chris Herndon. After Cody Parkey scored a 44-yard field goal in Cleveland’s second offensive possession, the Jets took the lead 7-3 in the first quarter by 34 seconds. Ty Johnson took the handover from Darnold and turned the ball over to Crowder, who rolled to his right and zipped a pass down to a wide-open berrios – which had been set up as a jam – for a 43-yard touchdown. It was the second round in Crowder’s career. He had an incompleteness as a rookie with Washington in 2015. New York got the ball back when Frankie Luvu fired Mayfield and pushed the ball away – and straight into the hands of Folorunso Fatukasi. It wasn’t long before the jets took advantage of this. Darnold found Herndon wide open in the back of the end zone. Ficken’s extra point was blocked by ex-Jets lineman Sheldon Richardson, but New York had an impressive 13-3 lead early into the second quarter. The Jets made it 20-3 on Crowder’s 30-yard touchdown catch. New York had a chance to extend the lead, but Fucken’s 50-yard field goal attempt was blocked – again by Richardson. This trip was extended by a roughing up of the kicker call on Jovante Moffatt, who came across Punter Braden Mann. Mayfield then marched the Browns downfield and Nick Chubbs 1 yard run made it 20-10 with 2:56 in the third quarter. Cleveland made it back-to-back touchdown rides with Hunt from 4 yards. But Parkey hit the left post and the Browns followed 20-16 with 12:38 remaining. IN SHORT The Browns learned Sunday morning that they would be without a will due to an illness. It was put on the COVID-19 list on Thursday and activated on Saturday, but was then downgraded on Sunday. The Browns’ trip to New Jersey was postponed on Saturday after Linebacker B took off. J. . Goodson was added to the COVID-19 list and five other players, including Landry, were banned due to close contact. The others were receivers Rashard Higgins, Donovan Peoples-Jones and KhaDarel Hodge, as well as linebacker Jacob Phillips. STREAK OVER – The Jets went out of the race three times on their opening run and ended their franchise record streak in their first offensive possession after eight games (three touchdowns and five field goals). . MILESTONE Frank Gore of the Jets became the third player in NFL history to turn 16. Ran a thousand meters. 37-year-old Gore joined the Famers Emmitt Smith and Walter Payton Pro Football Hall to hit the milestone with a 4-yard run in the third quarter. Gore walked in and it was forty feet to join Smith and Payton. His 4 yard run gave him exactly 16. 000. INJURIES Brawns: LB Tae Davis sustained an ankle injury.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jacksonville Jaguars took care of the Chicago deal on Sunday, losing their 14th. Game in a row and then got help getting the No.. 1 secure. 1 selection in the 2021 NFL draft. Hello Trevor Lawrence! Mitchell Trubisky scored three goals, including two touchdown passes for Jimmy Graham, and the Bears beat the Jaguars 41-17 in a game that mattered to both Jacksonville’s long-term future and Chicago’s short-term Destiny. The Bears (8-7), who took control of their post-season path when Arizona lost to San Francisco on Saturday, can play the NFC playoffs for the second time in three years by playing at home against Green Bay next week win. The Jaguars (1-14), who set a franchise record for consecutive losses, secured first place for the first time in franchise history when the New York Jets defeated Cleveland at 23-16 minutes later. That means that on the same day that Jacksonville hit its worst skid in franchise history, it could be a potential trailblazer for the small marketing team that has spent most of the past two decades searching for a franchise quarterback Has. The only thing standing between Jacksonville and Lawrence is the Clemson star officially going pro. That decision is expected after the Tigers finish their college football playoff season. The last loss of the jaguars was over long before time ran out. Chicago scored 28 unanswered points early in the second half and were so far ahead that Nick Foles had to end the game against his former side. Trubisky completed 24 of 35 passes for 265 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. He also ran for a score. Trubisky’s performance was far from perfect. His interception came towards the end of the first half in the end zone – he inexplicably crawled and threw himself into a crowd – with the bears in the field goal area, and he had almost one more by the start of the third. But safety Jarrod Wilson dropped the ball and then fell to the floor to do 10 pushups. Allen Robinson finished with 10 catches for 103 yards against his former team. Robinson spent the first four years of his NFL career with the Jaguars. Graham had four receptions for 69 yards. Former Bears quarterback Mike Glennon started the season for Jacksonville for the fourth time and had two touchdown passes and two interceptions. Glennon almost had a third turnover, but Bilal Nichols dropped a ball on the scrimmage line that hit him in the chest. David Montgomery and rookie Artavis Pierce each scored a goal on the ground. Chicago scored 30 or more points for the fourth straight time, the first time since 1965 that the bears had accomplished the feat. KEY INJURIES Jaguars full-back Bruce Miller was dismissed with a concussion after a helmet-to-helmet hit against Bear’s punt returner Anthony Miller. UP NEXTBears: Can secure a place in the playoffs against Green Bay next Sunday in Chicago. Jaguars: Finish the season in Indianapolis, where winning wouldn’t change their draft position. ___More AP NFL: https: // apnews. com / NFL and https: // twitter. com / AP_NFLMark Long, The Associated Press

A trip to Anfield has become the most daunting game in English football. Unless you’re Sam Allardyce. « Big Sam » – as he is generally known – pulled off another master stroke on Sunday, leading relegation candidates West Bromwich Albion to a 1-1 draw at Liverpool as the champions scored their first Premier League title defense points at home lost. It was only Allardyce’s second game to play West Brom since taking over the relegation zone for his first managerial job in 18 months. Back to April 2017 and it was Allardyce who led Crystal Palace to a 2-1 win over Liverpool at Anfield. This is the last time Liverpool have lost a league game at home. Indeed, Allardyce is unbeaten in each of his last four league games at Anfield. They have all been to different clubs – Sunderland, Palace, Everton and now West Brom – with a brief and unfortunate stint as an English coach in between. « We kept a tight ship all the way, » said Allardyce, who wants to prove again why he has the status of a survival specialist in English football. Liverpool had won their first seven home games in the league this season and were on their way to an eighth when Sadio Mane came in 12th. Controlled a pass from Joel Matip on his chest, turned and shot a violent low shot into the corner. However, this was one of only two hits from Jürgen Klopp’s side that were stifled by Allardyce’s deep defensive setup. It wasn’t uncommon for West Brom to have 10 men behind the ball. The penultimate visitors who finished the game only had 22% possession. And from one of West Brom’s rare forays, a cross came from the right and Semi Ajayi scrambled over Fabinho to finish in 82. to send a header from the post into the net. « People will say we’re lucky, » said Allardyce, « but that was a good application from the players and they took their chance on the other end. « . Liverpool are still on track to keep the title. After 15 games, they are three points ahead of their neighbors Everton from Merseyside in first place. But Klopp’s defensive problems increased when Matip turned 60. hobbled away with an injury to his left adductor. He was Liverpool’s only strong central defender, Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez were out with long-term injuries. « It’s not a game we’re going to be talking about in 20 years, » said an angry Klopp. JIMENEZ RETURNSWolves striker Raul Jimenez returned to Molineux for the first time since a fractured skull. He watched from the stands as team-mate Romain Saiss in the 86. Equalized in the minute to create a 1-1 draw with Tottenham. Mexico international Jimenez has not played a game of the Wolves since he was injured in a head fight at a game at Arsenal in November. 29. Wolves conceded after just 57 seconds when Tanguy Ndombele shot a low shot past Wolves goalkeeper Rui Patricio from 20 yards. Saiss grabbed a point for the hosts when he headed Pedro Neto in a corner. Wolf manager Nuno Espirito Santo has refused to give a timeframe for Jimenez’s possible return to action. With a goal against, Tottenham missed a chance to advance to third place and instead climbed to fifth, six points behind Liverpool. CONTENTIOUS CALLSEs was a story of two controversial penalty kicks in Leeds’ 1-0 win over Burnley. The winning goal was set in the fifth minute by Patrick Bamford, who reportedly tripped after a long ball from Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope. If Burnley’s players were injured by that decision – reiterations suggested Pope may have had contact with the ball – they were even more angry that they were in the 19th century. had not received a penalty of their own when Leeds goalkeeper Illan Meslier came out to collect a high ball and appeared to jump in the back of Burnley defender Ben Mee. Meslier dropped the ball and Ashley Barnes spun to shoot into the net, but Mee had already been fouled. « I’m incredibly frustrated, » said Burnley manager Sean Dyche, whose team is just two points above the relegation zone. « These are two very important decisions that are made against us. SOUCEK RESCUES HAMMERSBrighton was eight minutes away from beating West Ham, drawing four points ahead of the bottom three. Then Tomas Soucek hit his third goal in five games and drew 2-2 against West Ham at the Olympic Stadium. Brighton took the lead twice through Neal Maupay and Lewis Dunk. 20-year-old full-back Ben Johnson scored West Ham’s first equalizer with his first goal for the club. ___More AP football: https: // apnews. com / Soccer and https: // twitter. com / AP_Sports ___ Steve Douglas is at https: // twitter. com / sdouglas80Steve Douglas, The Associated Press
