Austin Rivers decides against rest before Clippers’ loss

first_imgFor whatever reason, no one got Sunday night off to rest before a 111-102 loss to the Pacers.“Everybody’s good,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said pregame.Whether they are or not, it might be hard to get an honest self-evaluation from Clipper players.Paul and Crawford were both asked Friday how they’d react if they were next to sit, and neither player seemed thrilled with the idea. Still, the Clippers have invested in the biomedical department, and Crawford said he understood why the team would want to utilize the technologies. “We hired a lot of people this summer. And, you know, from a coaching point you just got to trust them,” Rivers said. “They clearly know more than me. A lot of teams are doing it, a lot of teams have raved about him. Honestly, some teams and some of the players on other teams have not liked it. But it’s done for the good of the player and obviously the team, so you just got to trust the process.”Griffin and Redick both had discussions with the Clippers’ player performance staff before ultimately accepting the decision.“You want pushback,” Rivers said.It just probably won’t matter.“No, I can’t be convinced,” he said. “I can be convinced if both sides are willing to negotiate. But I can’t be convinced if the scientists say no. Then that’s no. That’s a fact, and that won’t change.”Pierce playing for defensive purposesThe Clippers’ five-man unit of Austin Rivers, Crawford, Marreese Speights, Raymond Felton and Wesley Johnson, statistically, is the second best defensive group in the NBA. Opponents have scored only 91.1 points per 100 possessions against that lineup – second among 5-man groups that have played at least 100 minutes this season. So, it stands to reason that Rivers has decided to use veteran Paul Pierce instead of Johnson for an offensive boost, right?“And that’s where you’re wrong actually,” Rivers said. “Because actually I think Paul probably knows the positioning better than anyone. Like the Cleveland game, he had two plays where he was in the right spot defensively. “That was more of a defensive decision.”The 5-man lineup with Pierce, Rivers, Crawford, Speights and Felton is allowing 109.6 points per 100 possessions in 31 minutes prior to Sunday’s game. Johnson replaced Pierce in the rotation in the second half after another poor defensive stretch for the bench in the second quarter. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img LOS ANGELES >> Playing for the 22nd time in just 36 days, Sunday night against Indiana might’ve been the night to tap Chris Paul or Jamal Crawford on the shoulder and tell them it’s time.J.J. Redick had to do it on Friday in New Orleans. Blake Griffin had to do it in Brooklyn.And soon, it’ll be someone else’s turn.Maybe it’s because the Clippers get two days off before the game. Maybe it’s because the workload for Paul and DeAndre Jordan has been a little lighter.last_img read more

Wellington City Council forum: Lannon Taylor

first_img2. What is the main reason why you are running for Wellington City Council?Taylor: Having been appointed to the city council upon the departure of former councilman John Holmes, I feel there are issues that have not been completed, issues that still need to be addressed and a desire to assist when possible with the issues facing the city of Wellington.3. Losing businesses is an ongoing concern to the community of Wellington. What do you as a city council member believe you can do to stop the exodus and enhance business growth?Taylor: Continue to reach out to other businesses across the nation and invite them to look at Wellington as a possible point of relocation.Also to continue to work with local retailer’s to asses what problems are facing the local businesses and what we as a city council can do to assist local businesses. by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Lannon Taylor is a Wellington City Council incumbent running for one of six “at large” positions on the newly restructured board.Registered voters within the Wellington city limits can vote in this race which will have 15 candidates on the ballot. The top three vote-getters will receive four-year terms. The second three will receive two-year terms.Voters can vote for up to six candidates. They can vote for one candidate, two candidates, three, four, five or six – but nothing more.The city/school election will be held on Tuesday, April 2. Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. at the Raymond Frye Complex. People can also advance vote at the Sumner County Clerk’s office.The following is a list of questions submitted to Taylor.1. Tell us about yourself.Taylor: I served in the United State Marine Corp from 1972-1976.

Do you favor other alternative water sourcing, or do you believe we should remain status quo on our water resources? Also, will you ever be in favor of water rationing?Taylor: I am not currently in favor of alternative water sourcing. Yes I am in favor of water rationing and always in favor of water conservation.6. The total assessed valuation in Wellington went down in 2012, but may remain constant or improve with the inclusion of Wal-Mart on the tax roll in 2013. However, this may not be the case in the next four years. If Wellington has a lower assessed value as the previous year, how would you as a council member respond to the lack of tax revenue for the municipality?Taylor: We would need to access the city’s current revenue status and make or implement the cuts necessary to carry the city through until tax revenues return to an acceptable level.7. Many believe Wellington has trouble promoting itself to outsiders. Do you believe as a tax entity, the city should initiate various promotional programs and if so what would you think they should be?Taylor: I do believe the city should provide monies and promote Wellington promotional programs. As mentioned previously, the city is reaching out to other large corporations throughout the U.S. and sending promotional packets to these companies. Myself and other current council members have been involved in this offering.8. Do you believe in tax incentives to lure in private business? If so or not, please explain.Taylor: I do believe in tax incentives to attract private businesses. I personally believe that we should offer whatever abatements and incentives needed to attract medium to large businesses as I feel in the long term their input into the community will far out weigh the initial cost of bringing them to Wellington.9. The Wellington utility rates continue to be a concern to many citizens, especially the fuel adjustment rates. Do you believe they are reasonable and in line with other communities? Should the city make a change in the way it handles utilities? Taylor: The current utility rates are in line with most Kansas city’s of similar size as Wellington. Wellington is higher that some, lower than others i.e.  Winfield utility rate is higher than Wellingtons. I do not feel that the current rate is unreasonable and I do not feel that changes need to be made at this time. Although, it probably can be anticipated that rates will necessarily go up at some point in the future as it seems every commodity is increasing in cost.  The city council will make every effort to keep rates as reasonable as possible.10. What would you say is Wellington’s biggest concern over the next four years?Taylor:  Wellington’s biggest concern over the next four years, continued loss of citizens, jobs, local businesses, and economic base.  The difficult question before the council and the citizens of Wellington is how do we make the city attractive to outsiders and bring them and their economy to the city. Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated. 4. The current Wellington City Council is studying ways to supply water to oil companies. What is your position on the matter?Taylor: I have not totally made a decision on the oil companies and water supply issue. During this time of extreme drought I was and currently lean towards not supplying the oil companies with our water as it is a very precious commodity. However; should the rains come and water return to a normal and plentiful level.It appears the individual oil rigs will use between 1.5-2 million gallons of water per project. This is approximately the amount that Wellington uses per day. If the Oil rigs can use non-treated effluent water the we should sell it to them.last_img read more
