They’re not talking about that, they’re talking about coming back and winning.”They have expectations, this team. No one wants to agree with us, and that’s fine. We’re fine with that.”But we have our own expectations and we’re going to keep them.”Lou Williams, who came off the bench to lead the Clippers with 36 points, admitted the turnaround was surreal.”I just got lost in the moment,” he said. Rivers’ team now hosts the two-time defending champions on Thursday in Game 3, and the Clippers coach said his players want to use their historic success in Oakland as a springboard for the remainder of the series.”That’s not enough for us,” he told reporters of the comeback. “We didn’t come here for that.”This is special. You’re down 30 on the road to anybody, you come back, it’s special.

I know we were down 30 at one point, I just got lost in the moment.”I really can’t recall a moment that I thought the momentum was changing. It probably was like a 3-point game. That’s when I kind of realized, ‘Oh, we got a shot at winning this game.'”I think I went into another place after that.”last_img read more

He was an All-Star while with the Rays in 2016 and has also pitched for the Mariners over his seven-year career.The Phillies, meanwhile, entered the season with high expectations after signing Bryce Harper and trading for JT Realmuto. But, they’ve been inconsistent so far and came into play Monday one game out of the second wild-card spot. Philadelphia also trailed the Braves by 6 1/2 games in the National League East race.

We’re going to continue to try. … (But), for this team to get where we want to go, the core players on this roster need to perform well. And that’s true of any team.

The Phillies could be looking to upgrade their bullpen.Philadelphia is “showing continued interest” in White Sox closer Alex Colome, according to a report from MLB Network, which cites an unidentified league source. “We’re a talented club that has yet to come together all at once,” Phillies manager Gabe Kapler told reporters over the weekend, via NBC Sports Philadelphia. “We’ve seen stretches of good play. I believe we have a strong run in us in the second half of the season. I think we’re positioned well.“I maintain that our job is to develop the players that we have in the room. It’s not to speculate on what’s happening outside (at the trade deadline). I trust 100% that our front office is going to do everything they can to improve our club.”The Phillies acquired Mets starter Jason Vargas on Monday in exchange for a low-level prospect. General manager Matt Klentak said last week the team might focus on making supplemental moves before the July 31 trade deadline.
