Neymar equals Messi’s record with Atalanta performance, claims MVP

first_img At the last count, his 16 completed dribbles was the most by a player in the tournament since Lionel Messi against Manchester United in 2008. Javier Zanetti also managed the same amount against Dinamo Kiev in 2003. Not everything went Neymar’s way, the 28-year-old missing two big chances in the first half. However, his performance as a whole was a firm reminder of why he is one of the best players in the world, Atalanta finding it almost impossible to deal with him at times. Speaking after the game, Neymar told RMC Sport: ‘I never thought of elimination, I never thought of going home. From start to finish, we thought about qualifying for the semi-finals. Brazilian superstar Neymar did not only help PSG progress  into the Champions league semi-finals on Wednesday night, but also did something no other man has done in the competition in 12 years. The Brazilian, who completed 16 dribbles during PSG’s Champions League win against Atalanta was the French side’s best player on a night, when it looked as if the Ligue 1 giants would falter in Europe once again as the game entered the 90th minute. However, they turned it around, Neymar playing a huge part in both goals as Marquinhos and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting struck to seal a 2-1 victory and a place in the semi-finals. Neymar had the look of a man trying to do it all on his own for much of the game and the stats show it. ‘No-one is going to take my mind off that – I want to go to the final. Another level will come from us. ‘We are very happy, we are experiencing very strong things. We are a great group, a family, with this state of mind it’s impossible to eliminate us. ‘We never gave up, even in difficult circumstances. The desire that I have to win the Champions League was present long before this match, it never left.’ ‘There is one game left to go to the final. We will give everything, We will do everything to win.’ ‘It was difficult – Atalanta is a great team, which has played well all season and have been the surprise of the competition.

Different Clippers beat same ol’ Spurs

first_imgTwo things are abundantly clear one game into the first round of the Western Conference playoffs.These aren’t exactly the San Antonio Spurs we all remember.And these clearly aren’t the same old Clippers we remember either.Hallelujah to that. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error For every well-spaced kick and drive by Tony Parker for a wide-open 3, Blake Griffin threw down a tomahawk dunk.Those rumbles you heard were the aftershocks rippling all the way from downtown Los Angeles to the Lone Star state.Take that, Alamo.For every Tim Duncan post reverse pivot move, there was a thunderous block by DeAndre Jordan.And for every well-designed play to free up Kawhi Leonard or Boris Diaw or Danny Green or any of the other fundamentally sound supporting cast members the Spurs spit out like so many cars on a Detroit assembly line, there was a corresponding make by Chris Paul or a long-range jumper by Jamal Crawford. center_img When Staples Center finally stopped shaking, the Clippers had a 107-92 victory and a 1-0 advantage in this best-of-7 series.“We just played hard. Our crowd really got behind us,” said Paul, who dropped 14 fourth-quarter points to help the Clippers hold off the Spurs. “We’ve been talking all year how we need (the crowd) and they showed up tonight.”Paul had 32 points, seven rebounds and six assists, Griffin had 26 points, 12 rebounds and six assists, Jordan had 14 rebounds and four blocked shots and Crawford had 17 points on 7 of 10 shooting off the bench.The Spurs never had a chance.“It’s go-time now,” Paul said.“We just kept talking about finishing the game,” Paul added. “Me and Blake and DeAndre have been at this four years now. We know it’s go-time.”As expected, the Spurs arrived at Staples Center armed with experience and pedigree and championship mettle and the power of a final-season kick that had everyone rethinking all the stumbling and bumbling they did over most of the year.And they had a list of questions and demands for the Clippers. The gist was clear. We are the champions, this is what we do. Are you ready for this kind of stage? Heck, are you even willing to share it with us?The Clippers’ resounding answer was delivered by highlight reel dunks from Griffin, precision play by Paul, a gigantic lift off the bench from Crawford and the growling, snarling, intimidating defense by Jordan.And they were never more clear that this is a different crew of Clippers by gathering themselves after a fourth-quarter run by the Spurs sliced a 18-point lead to nine, then reared back and walloped the Spurs with a power-packed run of their own to build a 104-87 lead with just over three minutes remaining.Ballgame.“We came out with great energy and made stops,” said Griffin. “We knew they would make a run because that’s what god teams do. We just kept getting stops and easy baskets.”Ironically, coach Doc Rivers probably spoke for all of Clippers Nation when he shared his thoughts upon learning the Spurs were the Clippers’ first-round opponent.“This is what you get for going 14-1 (down the stretch),” Rivers said, sharing a nervous laugh before Game 1.He was joking.But we’d understand if he was being dead serious.After lifting themselves to a completely different level over the final leg of the regular season, soaring all the way to the No. 3 seed, you’d think the Clippers would have earned a nice little gift for the effort.I’m not talking an all-inclusive trip to the Bahamas, necessarily. But there has to be something in between a week on an exotic beach sipping free Mai Tais and getting sentenced to the 60 days of hard labor the Clippers got slapped with.In a classic case of good news/bad news, the Clippers were all smiles after earning homecourt advantage in the first round. Only to take a swift kick to the stomach upon learning their opponent was none other than the five-time NBA champion and reigning title-holders.Congratulations!Yuk, yuk. Wink, wink.Difference is, while these may or may not be the same old Spurs, it’s looking more and more like these aren’t the same old [email protected] @DailyNewsVinny on Twitterlast_img read more
