Beat writers split on Syracuse’s regular season finale at Clemson

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse (19-11, 10-7 Atlantic Coast) enters its regular-season finale coming off a blowout loss to No. 2 Virginia. Clemson (18-12, 8-9), on the other hand, just edged Notre Dame by one score on Wednesday. When these teams met earlier this season, the Orange won, 61-53.Here’s what our beat writers expect to happen Saturday.Billy Heyen (23-7)Points at a premiumSyracuse 61, Clemson 57The first meeting of these teams was a defensive battle, and that should hold true this time around. The Orange and Tigers are both much better defensively than offensively, so whichever team has someone that gets hot might hold the edge. I’ll put my cards in on Tyus Battle or Elijah Hughes getting hotter than Clemson’s Marcquise Reed, and with points at a premium, one player catching fire should be just enough to close the regular season off with a win.Charlie DiSturco (21-9)Tiger BiteClemson 63, Syracuse 58AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse has been unable to string together two good halves against good ACC teams in a couple weeks, and Clemson is a team on the NCAA Tournament bubble, hungry for another boost to its resume. The Tigers struggled to break the 2-3 zone earlier in the year, but seeing it for a second time should make things easier. This will be a defensive battle throughout, but in its last home game of the year, I see Clemson pulling away late on the backs of Marcquise Reed and Elijah Thomas. Matthew Gutierrez (18-12)Football in MarchSyracuse 66, Clemson 63Love to see two football teams go out with spring on the horizon. I think Syracuse is a lock for the NCAA Tournament, and no result Saturday will change that. But a win could help SU’s seeding in the tournament. The Tigers barely beat Notre Dame this week, and I think Syracuse has been tested enough over the past two weeks to beat an unranked ACC team on the road.

NBA Finals 2019: Stephen Curry expects DeMarcus Cousins to bounce back from ‘rough’ Game 3

first_img Warriors injury updates: Klay Thompson to play Game 4, but Kevin Durant out Draymond Green shrugs off Warriors’ Game 3 loss to Raptors: There are ‘fun times ahead’ “There’s nothing different he should do, just continue to play with confidence,” Curry told reporters of the center after his team fell, 123-109.”It was a rough go in terms of when he had the ball in his hands.

NBA Finals 2019: 3 takeaways from the Raptors’ Game 3 road win over the Warriors But with Golden State ravaged by injuries back at Oracle Arena, Cousins failed to produce a repeat performance, playing just 19 minutes in which time he scored just four points and had three rebounds and two assists.Yet Curry was keen to keep his teammate’s confidence high. Related News DeMarcus Cousins endured a “rough go” Wednesday as the Warriors lost Game 3 of the NBA Finals, but Stephen Curry offered encouragement to his teammate.Cousins, who has seen his first season in Oakland dogged by injury, played a key role in Game 2 as the Warriors stole a win on the road. “We were a little rushed early, but we were just trying to create good offense,” he said. “I think this is the third game in a row we scored 109.”It’s just a matter of our defense and we can’t fall into the trap of thinking offense alone is going to win us another championship or letting that end of the floor affect our defense.”That will be the biggest adjustment for us Game 4 all across the board.”last_img read more
