(AP Photo/Ben Margot)ExpandOAKLAND — It took a first-round playoff matchup against the two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors, but for the first time this season, the Clippers had a national ABC showcase for their star reserves Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell as well as their sometimes-petulant pluck.But if most fans tuning in for Game 1 wanted to see the Warriors put on a show, the Western Conference’s top seed didn’t disappoint. Golden State won a testy contest Saturday at Oracle Arena, 121-104.Behind 36 points on a history-making night from Steph Curry, now the most special 3-point specialist in NBA playoff history, and 23 points from Kevin Durant, the Warriors took a first step toward what they hope will be the first three-peat in league history since the Lakers in 2002.With eight 3s, Stephen Curry (386 career playoff 3s) passed Ray Allen (385) for most 3-point field goals made in NBA postseason history. He also had a playoff career-high 15 rebounds, seven assists and his 31st 30-point postseason performance. The eighth-seeded Clippers, underdogs of historic proportions at 100-1, were left fuming about what they felt was uneven officiating — especially late in the second half, when they trailed just 55-53 before Curry began his light-footed, crowd-pleasing rampaging, scoring 12 of his first-half 20 points in the final 2:06. Adding to the momentum slip, Danilo Gallinari and Coach Doc Rivers both were assessed technical fouls late in the half.“We got some tough calls down that stretch (of the first half),” Rivers said. “I wasn’t even upset at the missed calls. I was really upset at Gal’s tech. It really bothered me because all Gal said was, ‘Where was the foul?’ And without me saying any names, if one of our guys are going to get a tech for saying that, after what I witnessed in the first half from at least … that was disgusting. That’s what got me so upset…. It’s just not right. We have to be consistent.”Normally mild-mannered Lou Williams joined Rivers at center court, berating the officials after the halftime horn blew.“Me personally, I did lose my composure, which is a rare thing,” Williams said. “And so I feel like if that happens, it’s kind of — it’s warranted.“We understand at that moment Steph Curry has two fouls, a third foul would be a pretty big deal for us, and right before that he gets a call that was kind of questionable, then they miss ours, they get an offensive rebound, Gallo was vertical, get (called for) another (foul) call.”center_img Williams said the officials’ response was simply: “They missed it.”Later, official Ed Malloy was quick to toss Patrick Beverley and Durant after assessing both players with back-to-back double technical fouls, 19 seconds apart.“We took the bait, (Durant) took the bait,” Warriors Coach Steve Kerr said. “That’s two technicals. You get seven technicals, your seventh one is a suspension in the playoffs, whether you play four games or 24, seven is the magic number. He’s got four to play with, after one game.“But that’s what Beverley does… but you cannot take the bait because that’s a bad trade for us. Clippers have made a lot of good trades this year and that was maybe their best.”Keeping in theme with the 2018-19 season, Harrell and Williams who both had career playoff highs with 26 and 25 points apiece, keeping the Clippers as close as they could. The duo combined for 22-of-36 shooting and became the first reserve duo to each score 25 points in a playoff game since at least 1971.And with Oracle Arena’s fired-up fans at their back, the Warriors withstood it all by forcing 17 turnovers, blocking 14 shots, holding the Clippers to 40.4 percent shooting while letting it fly from wherever felt right.As a team, Golden State shot 49.5 percent from the field 46.7 (14 for 30) from 3-point range.And yet, the underdogs — commended often by Rivers for their resilience — showed no quit. But neither did the champs.Early in the fourth quarter, consecutive 3s from Gilgeous-Alexander and Shamet brought the Clippers within 98-85 — before Klay Thompson answered from distance to make it 100-85.Then, with 7:16 left, DeMarcus Cousins fouled out, Oracle Arena got quiet and JaMychal Green buried a 3-pointer to cut it to 105-89. But Curry found himself with an open shot, and of course it became 108-92 with 6:40 to go.The Clippers — who are playing the Warriors in the playoffs for just the second time, following their seven-game first-round victory over them in 2014 — meet Golden State for Game 2 on Monday night back at Oracle Arena.last_img read more

Purposefulness Promotes Health, Longevity

first_imgA purpose-driven life has side benefits of psychological health and drive, and might even prolong your life.Live Science published results of a study by the Journal of the American Medical Association that confirmed longevity benefits for people who describe their life as purposeful.The findings held even after the researchers took into account certain factors that could affect people’s sense of life purpose or their risk of death, such as whether the participants had depression.“There seems to be no downside to improving one’s life purpose, and there may be benefits,” said lead author Aliya Alimujiang, a doctoral student at the University of Michigan School of Public Health. “Previous research has suggested that volunteering and meditation may improve psychological well-being.“The findings from a long-term study that began in 1992 and carried forward to a questionnaire in 2006, involving 7,000 people. Mortality rates of participants were studied over subsequent years. Those with low life-purpose scores were more than twice as likely to die, researchers found. The reason, they believe, is that purposeful living lowers stress hormones that lead to inflammation. “Inflammation, in turn, has been previously linked with an increase in risk of early death, according to the study.”It’s nice to know that purposeful living has benefits, but it depends on the purpose. If a Muslim’s purpose is to blow up as many infidels as he or she can, that will not promote longevity!When thinking about your life’s purpose, don’t listen to shallow graduation speeches, or hollow platitudes like “The meaning of life is to live a life of meaning.” No; turn to the Manufacturer! He knows our purpose, and He revealed it to us in His word. Micah 6:8 says, “He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” The Apostle Paul spoke of his purpose as a “calling.” Paul’s calling as a preacher of the gospel to the Gentiles involved much danger and opposition. Near the end of his life, he wrote to his student Timothy,6 For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands, 7 for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.8 Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God, 9 who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began, 10 and which now has been manifested through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel, 11 for which I was appointed a preacher and apostle and teacher,12 which is why I suffer as I do. But I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed, and I am convinced that he is able to guard until that day what has been entrusted to me.  (II Timothy 1:6-12).Man’s purpose is to glorify our Creator and love Him forever. Each of us individually has a purpose within that purpose – a calling tailored individually to each of us. There is no greater mission in life than to find the will of God for your life, and to fulfill it. Whether or not that leads to health and long life, a life that fulfills our divine mission is a life well livedFurther Reading: 2 Peter, ch. 1.
