Draymond Green on Team USA’s Olympic meltdown: ‘We didn’t do enough’

Draymond Green did not sound panicky after Team USA lost an Olympic basketball game for the first time in 17 years. The Warriors center was matter-of-fact in his summation of the United States’  83-76 defeat to France — a game that turned on a fourth-quarter collapse. “We haven’t been together long but we’ve been together long enough to be consistent,” Green said in a news conference. “We have to defend better down the stretch. We have to close the games out.” The Americans did none of that in an inauspicious start to the Tokyo Games at Saitama Super Arena. France became the third team this month to defeat Team USA. The other two were meaningless exhibition defeats to Nigeria and Australia in Las Vegas.

‘It Looks Like a Horror Film’: Dixie Fire Evacuee Shares Firsthand Perspective As Firefighters Battle Blaze

PLUMAS COUNTY (CBS13) — California’s largest wildfire so far this year continues to burn through Butte, Plumas and Lassen counties. The Dixie Fire merged with the Fly Fire overnight on Saturday and forced more people out of their homes, and burned parts of tiny towns to the ground. The Dixie Fire has scorched hundreds of thousands of acres, already. Video shows crackling flames shooting into the sky and towering over trees. The windy, dry and hot conditions continue to fuel the flames in the remote area. “It looks like a horror film to be honest,” said Jake Edwards. He was given a warning to evacuate earlier in the week and took the opportunity. He still hasn’t been given the official order, but many of his neighbors have. The fire continues to move closer towards his Plumas County home. Edwards, a photographer, continues to share photos and video of the scene on his Instagram, @scenescapery. He’s captured bright orange skies, and an ashy Lake Almanor – calling the area “apocalyptic.” Some photos reveal mainly wildlife left behind. “It’s been absolutely bizarre,” he said. “With the smoke,…

Recycling A Profit: El Dorado Hills Students Turn 3D Printing Passion Into Small Business

EL DORADO HILLS (CBS13) – Two high school students in El Dorado Hills got creative during the pandemic. They turned their passion for 3D printing into their own small business by inventing a product they hope will help the environment. Oak Ridge High juniors Cole Johnson and John Enders admit they were bored during the pandemic. “Everybody had trouble finding things to do,” Johnson said. “I’m looking at these guys and they’re bored out of their minds,” said mom Christi Johnson. So they picked up a new hobby: 3D printing. It’s something the pair got into after spotting a printer at their local library. The machine itself is small and pretty much silent. A nozzle spits out a tiny stream of plastic that can be molded into pretty much anything your mind can dream up. The teens quickly ran out of filament material to create their 3D designs, but they noticed their printer left a lot of leftover material behind. “We end up with a ton of waste. All of this extra plastic, which is perfectly usable,  ends up going in the trash,” Cole Johnson…
