The Panthers need a refresh. It’s not just about whether Newton runs a ton of the zone-read keepers that have historically given defenses fits and opened up everything else. It’s also the downfield bombing attack, which requires Newton to stand in the pocket for eons. He’s perennially top-10 in time-per-play spent in the pocket, and last year he tied Jameis Winston for the league’s highest air-yards-per-attempt. Carolina’s pass game has been extraordinarily vertical, which in today’s NFL is actually the current fashion.
The Lakers were a hideous 2 of 14 from the line in their 99-86 win over the Indiana Pacers. That 14.3 percentage was the lowest by any team in NBA history (minimum 10 attempts), according to Elias Sports Bureau.
Man, that free throw line, it’s like a virus or something, said guard Jordan Clarkson, the only Laker to make free throws Friday.
The Lakers are by far the worst team in the NBA in free throw shooting, with their 68.8 percent clip below the Oklahoma City Thunder (70.6) entering Saturday. No current Lakers player is shooting better Arron Afflalo Jersey than 76 percent from the line.
With three injured starters on the bench, the Lakers shot an abysmal 2-for-14 from the foul line — the worst percentage in a game in NBA history — but still managed to beat the Pacers on Friday.
Limited Max Scherzer Jersey Yet, it was Ross who set the standard with that 4.22 40-yard dash. The difference in Ross and others that flirted with Johnson’s record in prior years is that Ross is a true receiver. He can win from the inside as well as he can down the field on the outside. His injury history is a concern and at the end of his run, he did have an issue with his calf that shut down his workout. It’s hard to find a true comparison but if you mashed up Redskins star DeSean Jackson and former Steelers dynamo Santonio Holmes, you’d get Ross.
And, to think, he was that close to hearing his name called at the 2017 NFL draft from his private island.
Authentic Kids Kevin Shattenkirk Jersey Rather than dwell on the Cleveland Cavaliers’ historically poor defensive performance Saturday against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Cavs coach Tyronn Lue decided against showing his team the game tape from the blowout loss and simply went back to work on the court Sunday.
Just move on, Lue said.
