Ozil and Sanchez starred together for Arsenal (Picture: Getty)Jack Wilshere believes Manchester United and Manchester City were too strong for Arsenal to win the Premier League title when Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez were at the club.Arsenal fans, including Wilshere, thought the Gunners were poised to challenge for silverware when Sanchez joined Ozil at the club in 2014.But aside from a few FA Cups, Arsenal failed to deliver major silverware during that period.Read the latest updates: Coronavirus news liveADVERTISEMENTWilshere played with both stars and explained why Arsenal struggled to keep pace with City and United in the league.‘We went through a few years where we didn’t challenge but then we brought in Sanchez and Ozil,’ Wilshere told the Lockdown Tactics.AdvertisementAdvertisement‘All of a sudden we started to feel like we could have a chance here but it never really turned out.‘We always had a point in the season where we’d drop so many points and we’d just be going for the top four.
“We saw all his talent tonight,” Doc Rivers said. “And, it’s frustrating to watch.”The Clippers had a chance down one after forcing Towns to hoist a desperation 3, but Andrew Wiggins out-leapt Austin Rivers for the rebound.“Him (Wiggins) being an athlete didn’t hurt,” Doc Rivers said.After Wiggins’ two free throws, J.J. Redick and Jamal Crawford both had chances to tie on a frantic last possession, but neither shot fell.The Clippers led by six midway through the fourth quarter, but Minnesota used intentional fouling to help climb back in the game. As they sent Jordan to the line on each possession, Towns attacked and kept shrinking the gap while Jordan kept splitting his trips to the free-throw line.Jamal Crawford, who the Clippers had hoped would snap out of a slump, continued to struggle from the field, but he made a pair of plays down the stretch that almost helped the Clippers keep the NBA’s longest active winning streak alive.Crawford grabbed a rebound on a missed Minnesota free throw, and before the Timberwolves could foul Jordan, he zipped a pass the length of the court to Raymond Felton for an easy layup.Crawford also got into the paint and hit a floater to beat the shot clock with 1:28 left to put the Clippers up three, but they were the final points his team would score.“I thought we stopped playing downhill,” Rivers said of his team’s 22 fourth-quarter points.Without Paul and Griffin, the Clipper offense still managed to score, with Austin Rivers adding 20 points to go with Jordan’s big night.But, help will still be welcomed.Thursday morning, Griffin underwent stress tests on the knee after the team’s morning shootaround, sprinting on the court at full speed with sensors on his legs while the team’s medical staff studied the results.Rivers said Griffin would undergo contact work Friday – the first time he’s done so since undergoing surgery on his right knee a little more than four weeks ago. Thursday, they just weren’t big enough.Even on a night where DeAndre Jordan scored a career-best 29 points, the Clippers couldn’t match Minnesota’s Karl-Anthony Towns, who helped lead the Timberwolves back for a 104-101 win, snapping the Clippers’ seven-game winning streak.“He was unbelievable,” Doc Rivers said. “He made a ton of shots. … He made us pay.”Towns scored 27 of his 37 points in the second half (and 15 in the fourth), showing the inside-outside game that has the 2015 No. 1 overall pick pegged for greatness.Towns’ face-up jumper over Jordan in the final minute put Minnesota ahead for the first time since early in the first half. LOS ANGELES >> The best chance for the Clippers over the next month or so was on the bench in a gray slim-cut suit.Blake Griffin, who has been out since undergoing knee surgery, bounded up off the bench when DeAndre Jordan threw down a dunk, when Brandon Bass muscled up a putback and when Jamal Crawford finally got a shot to fall.But with Chris Paul’s left thumb freshly operated on, the Clippers need another play maker way more than they need a cheerleader.Griffin should be on the way – the team is hoping he’ll be able to return on the Clippers’ upcoming roadtrip. But, in the meantime, without either of their top stars, the Clippers were going to need big nights from other sources. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
