SAN ANTONIO >> There was no time to be wasted inside the Clippers’ locker room after their 116-92 win in San Antonio on Saturday night.The players who are usually last to get ready were showered and dressed by the time the media entered the room. Bags were already packed. People were ready to leave.But Luc Mbah a Moute, he was moving slowly.Normally, that might be a problem for the players and coaches who wanted to rush home and take advantage of the extra sleep and the off day on Sunday. But considering how Mbah a Moute played on Saturday, no one was going to complain. He scored 13 points, more than doubling his scoring output from the previous six games combined. He helped wrap up Kawhi Leonard, San Antonio’s best player, and switched onto LaMarcus Aldridge and Pau Gasol.And his off-the-ball movement created a new element for the Clippers’ offense.“I don’t know if he flustered Kawhi, but he played him very well,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. “Luc, the past three games, has been cutting. That’s one of the things … Dee Brown and him work literally every day on cutting and finishing and finishing through contact. … When he had the one layup, it was really good from a coaching standpoint. They all looked behind our bench at Dee.“That’s the work. Luc’s putting in the work.”Mbah a Moute has been working on the defensive end since he joined the starting lineup on Nov. 29 last season. His insertion into the starting lineup mirrored the Clippers’ rise up the defensive leaderboard. And this year, the team has been even better. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “(It’s) the continuity. For me, it’s just being more comfortable playing with these guys on defense,” Mbah a Moute said. “Last year was my first year. There were a lot of things I didn’t really master. But this year, for example, playing pick and roll with Blake (Griffin), I wouldn’t say I’ve mastered it, but it’s way better than last year.”Forming continuity with Griffin, J.J. Redick, DeAndre Jordan and Chris Paul has been a challenge for whoever joins the starting lineup. But in year two, Mbah a Moute’s starting to build that.“It definitely is difficult. You see that at the beginning of each training camp with us four … knowing the whole offense, knowing everything,” Griffin said. “The fifth guy, it’s just a learning curve. But Luc’s done an unbelievable job of learning it, knowing his role, staying in his role and making plays when he needs to and doing exactly what’s being asked.”Now he’s being asked to be more of a threat. Mbah a Moute took four 3-pointers Saturday — the most attempts from deep in his time with the Clippers. His cutting can be a weapon with defensive eyes focused on the other four players on the court.“People are going to lose sight of him and he can become a great cutter, then all of a sudden, you have to guard him,” Rivers said. “That allows our offense to be better.”But any contributions on offense won’t change Mbah a Moute’s mindset.“Luc knows who he is,” Paul said. “… That’s part of his job. Sometimes, he cuts and doesn’t get the ball and it opens things up for other guys. We all have a role to play, and he’s a big part of it.” read more

Amber, a mobility startup, has an ambitious plan to deploy self-driving cars in Dutch cities by mid-2018. The team, a spin-out of the Eindhoven University of Technology, is building a ride-sharing platform that will use student drivers to start, before switching to autonomous vehicles.It uses a predictive analytics platform that calculates where the next fare will be, lowering wait times. If one of Amber’s taxis is not available, the app calls a regular cab. As the app gets smarter and Amber adds more drivers, it expects wait times to decrease.See Also: Lyft and nuTonomy announce autonomous R&D partnershipCameras, radar, and other sensors are always collecting data, during the daytime with the drivers, and throughout the night in self-driving mode. Amber has received approval to test its self-driving system on roads in Eindhoven and Helmond, and other cities should come soon, as Netherlands is one of the more forward thinking European countries on autonomous vehicles.“Other companies working at self-driving technology have trouble testing because they always need an engineer behind the wheel,” said Amber CEO Steven Nelemans to GreenBeat. “Our cars are driving during the day with normal drivers to accumulate data. And at night they accumulate even more data in the self-driving mode. We can learn much faster.”Amber plans to launch its first car in 2021, the Amber One, designed with modular components that can be easily replaced. The car, we assume, will have all of the usual self-driving hardware, like Lidar sensors and high-powered graphics processors. The BMW i3 is the current car of choice.The startup is looking to raise $70 million, which would fund the next few years, as Amber starts to deploy self-driving cars throughout the day.
