“He’s been on a heater right now,” Williams said of Beal, who has assumed the scoring lead for the Wizards with fellow guard John Wall sidelined by a knee injury. “It is a little different. I’ve watched these guys on TV and now I’ve got to guard them, but this is what I was raised to do.”Beal is averaging a team-leading 23.8 points.TEODOSIC UPDATEThe Clippers listed Teodosic as “doubtful” to play against the Wizards, which was an upgrade from his status as “out” since he was injured in the closing minutes of the first half of the team’s Oct. 21 victory over the Phoenix Suns at Staples Center.Teodosic has rejoined his teammates for practice this week and has been cleared for contact in drills and scrimmages. Clippers coach Doc Rivers said he believed Teodosic was “ready” to play again, adding, “he’s close,” when pressed for a return date for the 30-year-old rookie from Serbia.FINDING A RHYTHMDanilo Gallinari said he felt “very good” during his return to the starting lineup Wednesday after a 13-game layoff because of a strained left glute. He said his conditioning is “very good,” adding it was not the reason for his lackluster 2-for-13 shooting in the Clippers’ loss to Minnesota.“You can practice as much as you want, but the game is different,” Gallinari said. “I’ve got to get back my rhythm. I didn’t help the team the way I wanted. That was the frustrating part. I have to be aggressive and go to the basket. I have to find a way to get baskets.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “We’re riddled with injuries and that’s allowed me a chance to have an opportunity,” said Williams, who signed a free-agent contract with the Clippers in September, so late in the offseason that the only mention of him in the team’s media guide is on the career transactions page.Williams is averaging 2.7 points, 0.9 rebounds and 0.9 assists in 11 games.He’s also averaged 14.7 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.0 assists in six G League contests.“To be a 3-star recruit in high school to being an NBA starter, it’s a dream come true,” said the 6-foot-5 Williams, who made the leap from his Fayetteville, North Carolina high school to N.C. State to Europe and several NBA summer league squads, and then finally to the Clippers.Williams’ next assignment could be his most difficult; he’ll be matched against the Washington Wizards’ Bradley Beal for Saturday’s matinee at Staples Center. Beal scored 34 points in the Wizards’ victory Thursday over the Phoenix, which was two nights after he had 51 against Portland. PLAYA VISTA — Point guard Milos Teodosic is expected to return to the Clippers lineup sooner rather than later, which means C.J. Williams will return to a reserve role sooner rather than later, which is still a “dream come true” for the 27-year-old rookie shooting guard.Williams was ticketed for the Clippers’ G League team when the regular season began Oct. 19, a victim of a numbers game with the NBA club. There just wasn’t a spot for him in the Clippers’ rotation, or on the bench, for that matter.Matters changed dramatically after injuries to Teodosic and Patrick Beverley meant the Clippers needed backcourt help. Teodosic was sidelined indefinitely after a plantar fascia injury to his left foot Oct. 21. Beverley underwent season-ending right knee surgery Nov. 22.Williams went from Reno to Charlotte to Ontario to New York, from the G League to the NBA back to the G League and back to the NBA in one grueling week of cross-country travel. Then he went from the Clippers’ bench to their starting lineup for the past two games, a pair of losses to Minnesota.

Facebook7Tweet0Pin0 Submitted by Thurston County Solid WasteGroups can work to reduce trash, reuse items, and recycle more. By being part of the Reduce, Reuse, Recycle Patch program, youth from Thurston County will learn how to prevent and reduce waste and take better care of their environment and neighborhood. After a group completes activities and action projects, they can fill out a Patch Requirement Sheet. Thurston County Solid Waste will send free patches to the group for practicing the 3 R’s.Don’t stop with the RRR Patch Program!Thurston Solid Waste has even more opportunities for youth in organizations, such as scouts, to earn badges, patches, pins, and service hours. They have helpful presentations that show you:What you can recycle in your community.How you can recycle at home.Where your garbage goes.Staff also help group members learn to teach others. Youth can work alongside Master Recycler Composter education volunteers or County outreach staff and “learn by doing”. One example activity is to show people how to sort their waste and recycling at a public event like the Thurston County Fair.If your group is interested and would like more information about either of these options, please visit www.ThurstonSolidWaste.org/Youth, or contact Colleen Minion at (360) 867-2280 or [email protected]

Whenever you have a talent, you want them to stay in that bubble as that talent. All you want to see them do is play basketball or play football. People are human beings, they have feelings. It’s good to see athletes use their platform and following to educate to the best of their knowledge and talk about things that is a problem. I want to see more of it,” he said.“The only thing I say is you’re an athlete and you do that, educate yourself on what you’re talking about. If you want to go out there and be vocal, be sure that you’re educated enough to talk about these things and answer the questions.”ADVERTISEMENT Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles01:37Protesters burn down Iran consulate in Najaf01:47Panelo casts doubts on Robredo’s drug war ‘discoveries’01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games WATCH: Streetboys show off slick dance moves in Vhong Navarro’s wedding “Unfortunately, I haven’t gotten my hand on some straw since I landed.
