ak, giving just the response Mourinho de from mary123's blog

OAKLAND, Calif. Bruce Miller 49ers Jersey . -- Clippers star Blake Griffin fired off some harsh words for the Golden State Warriors after being ejected on a Christmas night turned spirited. Coach Doc Rivers is equally as irritated -- and believes the Warriors tried to get Griffin thrown out. Griffin and Golden States Draymond Green were long gone before a wild finish Wednesday night, when Klay Thompson blocked a shot by Chris Paul with 1 second left then contested Jamal Crawfords 3-pointer that fell short at the final buzzer to send the Warriors past Los Angeles 105-103. Griffin was ejected for his second technical with 10:43 remaining after scuffling with Andrew Bogut, following Green to the showers after they got into it at the end of the third. Green was tossed for a flagrant 2 foul. "If you look at it, I didnt do anything and I got thrown out of the game. It all boils down to they (referees) fell for it," Griffin said. "To me, its cowardly basketball. I dont know their intentions, but it worked. ... If I knew the answer Id probably be in a different position. Tonight I got two technicals for nothing." Without Griffin, the Clippers missed too many chances in the waning moments. Pauls lay-in with 11.9 seconds left went around the rim and out, but Andre Iguodala missed a pair of free throws with 9.3 seconds remaining. That gave the Clippers the ball back with 8.3 seconds to go. Stephen Curry overcame a slow start to score seven of his 15 points over the final 3:01 to go with 11 assists as Golden State snapped the Pacific Division-leading Clippers season-best five-game winning streak. Thompson finished with 23 points and David Lee had 23 points and 13 rebounds. When the game ended, players tangled near the tunnel to the Clippers locker room and security personnel stepped in -- and former Warriors swingman Stephen Jackson could be seen screaming in the middle of it all. Whether the Warriors intended to ignite Griffin, Rivers can only guess. "I dont know if they were but it sure looked like it. I cant accuse them of that but it looked like it. Im not sure but thats what it looked like," Rivers said. "Its whatever you have to do to win, I guess." This one was sure was feisty and festive from the opening tipoff at sold-out Oracle Arena, where fans wore "Christmas Whiteout" snowflake Warriors T-shirts for the holiday occasion. Paul had 26 points and 11 assists as he and Curry put on a late-game show between two of the Western Conferences top point guards. Griffin added 20 points, 14 rebounds and five assists before his early exit. Bogut added 10 points and 14 rebounds. Neither Rivers nor Warriors coach Mark Jackson is ready to deem this a California rivalry just yet -- not until both teams are consistent contenders year after year, they say. Its certainly getting heated enough to be close to such status. And they see each other twice more. The Clippers come back Jan. 30. "We like them. Merry Christmas," Jackson said jokingly. "Its just physical basketball, so we dont get caught up in that. ... Its good, old-fashioned basketball between two teams that are playing for something." Griffin was held back by teammates at the end of the third quarter while jawing with Green. Following a review, Griffin received a technical and Green was ejected for a flagrant foul 2 after throwing an elbow. "You have some key matchups in the game where guys want to go at each other," Green said. "Any time you have that, youre going to have a tough, hard-nosed game." Then, officials went to review once more to look at a tussle between Griffin and Bogut. Griffin left the game while Bogut was hit with a flagrant 1 and a technical. The Clippers, who never trailed in the first half, took a 77-74 lead into the see-saw fourth. They dropped to 19-3 when leading after three quarters and 8-3 on the road. Los Angeles beat Golden State 126-115 at home on Oct. 31 to hand the Warriors their first loss a day after a season-opening win against the Lakers. Curry performed when it mattered, though he is shooting just 9 for 44 in three Christmas games. Lee and Bogut each have double digits in rebounds in 10 straight games. Golden State grabbed its first lead at the 10:35 mark in the third on Boguts running jumper and began the second half with an 11-6 spurt. The Warriors were 22 for 52 in the first half -- taking more shots than the Clippers 21 of 40 -- but Lees dunk pulled Golden State within 53-51 at halftime. Notes: Former Warriors G Matt Barnes got some Christmas boos when he checked in for the Clippers midway through the first, while Antawn Jamison still gets his due respect. ... The Warriors played their 23rd Christmas game and third in four years after having Christmas off for 26 years. They lost their previous Dec. 25 outing to the Clippers 105-86 at Oracle -- Los Angeles last on Golden States home floor -- to start the lockout-shortened 66-game 2011-12 season. ... The Warriors havent lost a season series to the Clippers since 2005-06. Golden State was one of only two teams along with the Thunder to take three of four from Los Angeles last season. Garrett Celek 49ers Jersey . Ashley Youngs cross was inadvertently headed by Chester into his own net in the 66th minute, allowing United to claim a third straight league win. "We had to dig deep with our fighting spirit and weve done that," United striker Wayne Rooney said. Daniel Kilgore 49ers Jersey . The 18th player to shoot 60 on the tour, Jamieson settled for par on the final hole when his 15-foot birdie chip grazed the edge of the hole and stayed out. After opening with rounds of 66 and 73 to make the cut by a stroke, he had 11 birdies in the bogey-free round.http://www.thesf49ersshoponline.com/Youth-Ray-Mcdonald-49ers-Jersey/ . But what about the officials? Every sport has officials and they also have stories about hard work and sacrifice but their accomplishments are seldom recognized by anyone outside their inner circle.LONDON -- Jose Mourinho failed to get the better of his former pupil on Saturday as Chelsea was held to 1-1 at Tottenham, with the visiting manager angry to see Fernando Torres sent off as they pushed for a winner. Chelsea fought back from a goal down, with John Terrys header during a revitalized second-half display cancelling out Gylfi Sigurdssons opener as the Blues seized the initiative against Andre Villas-Boas team. With around 10 minutes to go, Torres, who had been at the heart of Chelseas second-half attacking threat, was shown a second yellow card for an aerial collision with Jan Vertonghen. "Im sad because the game was good," Mourinho said. "In the first half it was not such a good Chelsea, in the second half Chelsea was not good -- Chelsea was very, very good." Torres looked incredulous after being shown red, remaining on the pitch in disbelief before eventually heading down the tunnel. Mourinho was critical of referee Mike Dean, saying: "Its a show for millions of people, and you killed the show because you want to be clever." Further incensing Mourinho was his belief that Vertonghen should have been suspended for Saturdays encounter. The midfielder escaped a red card after pulling down the shorts of Nicklas Helenius as the striker went through on goal during Tottenhams win at Aston Villa in the League Cup on Tuesday. "You go to YouTube -- its top of the ridiculous situations in football -- its ridiculous, the boy was naked," Mourinho said. "And today (Vertonghen) changed the game, so Im not happy." Chelsea remains two points behind second-place Tottenham, which is a further two points off north London rival Arsenal after its 2-1 win at Swansea late Saturday. The London derby was as fiery as the build-up when the tensions between the rival managers spilled out in public. Villas-Boas, once a junior member of Mourinhos coaching staff at Chelsea and Inter Milan, was facing his former mentor for the first time from an opposing dugout. Their pre-match greeting at White Hart Lane was more cordial than their verbal exchanges through the media around this match. Anquan Boldin 49ers Jersey. "Im not interested in what he said," Mourinho said after Saturdays game when asked to respond to one of Villas-Boas comments. "Im 50 years old, Im not a child," Mourinho added in a broadcast interview. "If you have a problem with someone you dont go to your mum, your dad or to the press to complain about it ... to resolve the situation." So for now the reasons for the spat are no clearer. Neither is the status of the title race after this match that Tottenham initially controlled. Christian Eriksen was the orchestrator for Sigurdssons opener, two week after setting up the Iceland midfielders double at Norwich. Eriksen brought the ball down the left flank and crossed to Roberto Soldado, who teed up Sigurdsson to find the net in the 19th minute. Chelsea was transformed after the break, giving just the response Mourinho demanded. Out-of-favour Mata entered at halftime and his display convinced Mourinho to start him against Steaua Bucharest on Tuesday when Chelsea looks for its first points in the Champions League group stage. "This is the way players have to say I want to play," Mourinho said. "He changed the team in the second half." The Blues were awarded a free kick when Vertonghen tripped Ramires as he ran through on goal, and then Terry became the first opponent to score at White Hart Lane all season in the 65th. Tottenham struggled to get out of its own half as Chelsea pushed for the winner, with Torres the creator as Andre Schurrle was denied by Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris. Mourinho had been planning to put two up front, but Samuel Etoo remained on the bench after Torres was sent off. He had received his first booking, for scratching Vertonghens face. "I dont think Fernando went in nasty to deserve a sending off," Villas-Boas said. "The referee decided both players went in in an aggressive way, but it was probably an unfair sending off." Wholesale Jerseys China ' ' '
