Two Super Bowl wins and many jaw-dropping run-around bombs later, he’s inching toward Canton.
Losman was the forgotten fourth first-rounder in an otherwise stellar draft class. He was set to sit behind Drew Bledsoe as a rookie, and then there was no choice when he broke his left fibula in training camp. It caused him to miss several early developmental reps and see only limited work late.
The Bills never gave him a good chance to succeed with the parts around him. Injuries didn’t help, either. There was some promise in 2006, but it was followed by significant regression and little playing time afterward.
Guice had to wait too long to be picked, given he should have been the second running back taken after Saquon Barkley. The Redskins will be thrilled to catch the falling star, They get a decisive power runner with great burst to upgrade from the early-down shakiness of Rob Kelley and Samaje Perine.
Former Clippers teammates Jamal Crawford and Chris Paul exchanged heated words after Crawford ran over Paul. Crawford was called for an offensive foul and a technical foul.
Former Clippers teammates Jamal Crawford and Chris Paul exchanged heated words during the second half, after Crawford pushed Paul down to the floor with a forearm. Crawford was t’d up. Now the heated discussion in the tunnels of the Toyota Center. Not even trying to be quiet about it. Paul arguing that whatever Crawford said to him after the tech was uncalled for.

The Rockets take the lead with a 10-2 run to start the second half. Houston had an 11-0 run right after halftime in Game 4 to get their 50-point quarter started.
Karl-Anthony Towns went to work when the Rockets went to a small lineup. Mike D’Antoni summoned Clint Capela off the bench after back-to-back baskets by Towns, who has a double-double (13 points, 11 rebounds) in the first half.
