Lou Williams led the Clippers with 35 points and eight assists. Kawhi Leonard had 28 points and 11 rebounds, and Harrell finished with 24 points and 13 rebounds.George played 15 minutes, scoring four points on 2-of-7 shooting before heading to the locker room.

Leonard missed a short jumper and Tatum scored again off a feed from Walker with 24.8 seconds remaining.Shamet tied it again with a 3-pointer, giving the Celtics the ball back with 21 seconds left.

It will hang in the open space next to the No. 34 of teammate Paul Pierce, who alongside Garnett led Boston to its most recent title in 2008.Pierce’s jersey was retired by the Celtics in 2018.

The Celtics played without Jaylen Brown, who has a left calf contusion.Clippers coach Doc Rivers said he likes his team’s position heading into the break.“We’re good,” Rivers said. “We’ve had a first half of the season where basically we’ve had more starting lineups than anybody in the league. Our record’s pretty solid. We gotta get healthy. That’s the key for us.

(Photo by Maddie Meyer/Getty Images)ExpandBOSTON — Jayson Tatum didn’t want to smile. But sometimes the moment calls for it.The Celtics were trailing 124-123 in the final minute of overtime in their back-and-forth slugfest with the Clippers and Tatum found himself defended by Landry Shamet and Montrezl Harrell. Tatum hesitated, sidestepped Shamet, then spun around Harrell for a layup. As the crowd cheered around him, Tatum led out a loud yell, flexing his arms.The play didn’t win the game and gave Tatum just two of the 39 points he scored in Boston’s thrilling 141-133 double-overtime win on Thursday night. But it’s the latest sign that the first-time All-Star is getting more comfortable as a go-to player.“I did get a little excited,” said Tatum, who finished 14 for 23 from the field, including 5 for 10 from 3-point range, and received a standing ovation from the TD Garden crowd when he checked out with 12.3 seconds left. “I try to be as calm as I can and try to keep a poker face and move on to the next play. But basketball is a game of emotions and the crowd was into it.” Monsta Jam.

Ms Lechowicz moved to the UK from Poland in 1997.In a statement, the Polish embassy said: “With great sadness, we received the news about the death of Izabela Lechowicz in the Leicester catastrophe.“She was a great pilot, winner of the #Polka100 contest. It contributed to the creation of a positive image of Poland in the UK.”Thai billionaire Mr Srivaddhanaprabha, 60, who was married and had four children, bought Leicester City for £39m in 2010.Under his ownership the club won the Premier League in 2016, having started the season as 5,000/1 outsiders.In a statement, Leicester City said the club’s thoughts were with “the Srivaddhanaprabha family and the families of all those on-board at this time of unspeakable loss”.The club described Mr Srivaddhanaprabha as “a man of kindness, of generosity and a man whose life was defined by the love he devoted to his family and those he so successfully led”.“Leicester City was a family under his leadership.

I am so totally devastated and heartbroken,” he added.Club captain Wes Morgan tweeted: “Absolutely heartbroken and devastated regarding the news of our chairman. A man that was loved and adored by everyone here at lcfc.”“His impact on Leicester – the football club and the city – will be remembered forever.”Paris Saint-Germain, Inter Milan, West Ham United, Tottenham Hotspur, Nottingham Forest and Swansea City were among the football clubs that passed on condolences to Leicester.Leicestershire Police confirmed no-one else had been injured and said the Air Accidents Investigation Branch had launched an investigation.The helicopter came down in a car park near the stadium just over an hour after Leicester had drawn 1-1 against West Ham United in the Premier League.The plane went into flames outside the King Power StadiumSupt Steve Potter said: “Emergency services were immediately on scene when the crash happened, working to put out the fire and gain access to the helicopter in attempts to reach those inside.“Despite those efforts, there were no survivors.”Supt Potter said it was likely to take several days to complete the investigation at the crash site.Freelance photographer Ryan Brown, who was covering the game, saw the helicopter clear the King Power Stadium before it crashed.He told BBC Radio Leicester: “The engine stopped and I turned around and it made a bit of a whirring noise, like a grinding noise.“The helicopter just went silent, I turned around and it was just spinning, out of control. And then there was a big bang and then [a] big fireball.”Comments last_img read more
