The 76ers won 121-120. (AP Photo/Laurence Kesterson)PHILADELPHIA — Joel Embiid is on a mission to win the MVP and Defensive Player of the Year awards. If he keeps up this pace, he’ll make it easy on voters.Embiid had 31 points and 19 rebounds, and the Philadelphia 76ers beat the New Orleans Pelicans 121-120 on Wednesday night after Anthony Davis missed the third of three free throws with 2.5 seconds left.ADVERTISEMENT Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award “The reality of how important he is to our team is ever-present,” Philadelphia coach Brett Brown said. “How can we all not notice how dominant he’s been?”Embiid had his way with New Orleans, finishing 11 of 23 from the field and 7 of 9 from the free-throw line. He also was 2 of 4 from beyond the arc. With his strength and size inside, as well as ability to shoot from outside, Embiid has been nearly impossible to guard this season. He has double-doubles in 18 of Philadelphia’s 20 games, leading the NBA.“As stupid as it sounds, we did a pretty good job on him,” Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said. “That’s a hell of a compliment to him to say we did a good job.”The 76ers are 10-0 at home this season. They looked in control, up nine points with just under 2 ½ minutes to play, before a late surge by the Pelicans.Embiid fouled Davis on a 3-point attempt, and Davis calmly swished the first two free throws before the third went in and out. Davis grabbed the rebound, but his wild attempt at a winning shot was off the mark.ADVERTISEMENT Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Pelicans: Davis reached 10,000 career points with a dunk late in the first half. … New Orleans dropped to 2-7 on the road.

But consecutive 3-pointers by Moore and Nikola Mirotic pulled the Pelicans within 119-118 with 1:08 left. J.J. Redick, enduring a rare cold shooting night, scored on a drive with 53.2 seconds to play to put Philadelphia ahead three. Davis misfired on a 3, but Philadelphia’s lead remained 121-118 after Simmons missed a 10-foot jumper to set up the game-deciding sequence.HOME SWEET HOMEThe 76ers have a long way to go to get anywhere close to the 1985-86 Celtics, who hold the NBA home regular-season record of 40-1. But Philadelphia clearly is stamping out its home court as a tough place for opponents.“There’s pride and we don’t want to let anyone down here,” Simmons said.AS FULTZ TURNSPhiladelphia played without guard Markelle Fultz. The 2017 No. 1 overall pick was on the bench but not in uniform after his agent informed the team Tuesday that Fultz would not practice or play with the team until consulting a specialist for his right shoulder. The demand from Fultz’s representative came a day after the guard was benched for T.J. McConnell in the second half of Philadelphia’s 119-114 win over the Suns on Monday.Fultz played just 14 games last season due to a shoulder injury that may or may not have affected his shot, which has become one of the most scrutinized in the NBA.

Freddie Kissoon at it again

first_imgDear Editor,I hate to challenge or respond to incorrect and baseless arguments and suppositions but Freddie Kissoon’s column in Sunday March 3rd Kaieteur News took the cake for stupidity. He is critical of entrepreneurship and progressive businesses. Freddie, this is the only way a country’s GDP expands, it is the only way wealth and employment are created for all. Your chastisement of Eddie Boyer stems from personal hatred and envy, not from the love of the poor and disenfranchised.Businesses throughout Guyana, whether it be National Hardware or whoever else, are the ones who have legally purchased land and used it for the good of the people of Guyana. For your information, if you do not already know, the land at Lilendaal was procured through legal and open tender. Why did you not say this in your column? People like Eddie Boyer are dedicated, hard workers with an insight to develop and grow Guyana, not sit behind a desk and criticize progress.In addition, your accusation that the rich do not pay taxes is fallacious. Maybe you are referring to the rich Chinese who are evading VAT, Import Duty and income taxes on all fronts. To the delight of all Guyanese you should go after them. Please get your facts correct before making false accusations. Until you become Commissioner of Inland Revenue, as you want to be, respect our existing tax department and consult with them.It is uncanny to note that you, who are living in a GuySuCo “scheme”, and has never worked with GuySuCo, nor a sugar worker who broke your body for Guyana, are critical of others.In every society there are economic classes and nowhere is wealth shared equally, so I am surprised that you, my learned friend has decided that suddenly we live in an equal society. I wonder Freddie, if you think or want others to think that you survive at a subsistence level. Far from it, you are part of the privileged class.You have indicated that your personal friendship with the minister responsible for housing led to an acquaintance of your being awarded a plot ofland. While this is a noble gesture, what about the thousands who wait in line but never hear from the housing minister because they don’t have a friend who could talk to him and get preferential treatment.You are critical of nepotism, but you practice it.While I am a member of no political party and free from biases, I can tell you that as I go across the length and breadth of Guyana I can see vast areas that the PPP government has transformed into residential areas. You have not alluded to these. Did it ever bother you that the APNU/AFC government practically halted this exercise?Finally, Freddie, every political party wants to run the affairs of the country because it feels that it has the wherewithal to do so. Each of the major parties had long stints at governing and it will be the will of the people both rich and poor who will determine this in the upcoming elections.Allow the populace to make that decision based on unbiased and correct information. Refrain from personal vendetta and hateful allegations.Sincerely,Concerned Guyaneselast_img read more

Sports Wire: Beckham suffers right knee injury

first_imgIt took Garcia 28 months to earn his 134th stakes win at Los Alamitos. He tied Kenny Hart’s mark with Enjoy The Moment in the Las Damas Handicap on October 30, 2004. Trained by Adan Farias, A Mere Splash broke the deadlock between the pilots with an impressive 3/4 length victory over the 18-1 longshot Little Bit Of Baja. “I’m not going to lie to you, my dream has always been to break records at Los Alamitos,” Garcia said. “That’s why I came here in the 1980s. It had been so long since I had won a stakes that I had stopped expecting to break this mark. Having this record means a lot to me. My next goal is to break Danny Cardoza’s record for Quarter Horse wins at Los Alamitos. I have a lot of gas left in the tank as a jockey, so I believe that I can break it.” Garcia is 69 wins away from equaling Cardoza’s mark of 2,528 Quarter Horse wins at the Orange County oval. Dallas signs OL Davis The Dallas Cowboys agreed to terms with free agent offensive lineman Leonard Davis on a seven-year contract worth nearly $50 million, a story posted on the team’s official Web site reported Sunday. The team had not yet announced the deal. Calls by The Associated Press to the offices of team spokesman Rich Dalrymple and Davis’ agent, Ryan Tollner, weren’t immediately returned. Dallascowboys.com, as well as The Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, reported the deal without naming sources. Dallascowboys.com reported that Davis’ package included $18.75 million in guaranteed money. The Houston Texans agreed to terms with free agent running back Ahman Green. The 30-year-old former Green Bay Packer will likely become the starter for a team that struggled at the position last season after Domanick Williams – formerly Davis – missed the year with knee problems. Terms of the contract were not immediately available. The Detroit Lions agreed to terms on a multiyear contract with free agent defensive end Dewayne White, filling one of their offseason needs. Hewitt tops Melzer Lleyton Hewitt won the Tennis Channel Open in Las Vegas for the third time, outlasting fourth-seeded Jurgen Melzer, 6-4, 7-6, in the final. The second-seeded Hewitt dropped the first three games of the second set and later fought off four set points before winning the thrilling tiebreaker. A Melzer double-fault put Hewitt in command, giving him an 11-10 lead. Hewitt capitalized on the next point, getting Melzer to hit it into the net. It was Hewitt’s 26th career title, but only his third since January 2005. Avengers lose opener Going into the season opener at Staples Center the Avengers could not have wanted anything more then to defeat the Western Division rival San Jose SaberCats to help put last year’s five-win season behind them. So much so, they attempted an on-side kick on the opening kickoff. The Avengers recovered only to have the ball given to San Jose, because of an offsides penalty. San Jose scored one play later to take the lead just 23 seconds into the game. From that point the Avengers were playing a game of catch-up and despite coming back to tie the score four times fell to the visiting SaberCats, 66-58, in front of 12,586. Sonny Cumbie hit on four for his first five pass attempts, including a 19-yard touchdown pass to Lenzie Jackson in the first quarter.

Despite blowing the chance to seal the Premier League title in a thrilling 3-2 derby defeat to Manchester United last weekend, City still boast a 13-point lead at the top of the table heading into Saturday’s match against Tottenham.De Bruyne is expected to be City’s leading candidate having contributed a league-high 15 assists and seven goals from midfield as Pep Guardiola’s have marched towards the title.However, the Belgian may be beaten to the award by Salah’s free-scoring form.The Egyptian has scored 39 times in all competitions, including in each leg as Liverpool dumped City out of the Champions League quarter-finals 5-1 on aggregate.Salah leads the way in the race for the Premier League golden boot with 29 goals to Kane’s 25.Sane and Kane are also on the shortlist for the Young Player of the Year award alongside City goalkeeper Ederson and forward Raheem Sterling, Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford and left-back Ryan Sessegnon, who has starred in Fulham’s push for promotion from the Championship.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Rodgers eyes Liverpool revenge, Spurs seek salvation

first_img0Shares0000Rodgers’s revenge: Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers was sacked by Liverpool in 2015 © AFP / Oli SCARFFLONDON, United Kingdom, Oct 4 – Liverpool’s perfect start to the Premier League season is under threat from an in-form Leicester led by a manager with a point to prove at Anfield in Brendan Rodgers.The European champions have a five-point lead at the top of the table over Manchester City, but Leicester are the closest challengers to the top two as they aim to break the glass ceiling of the top six. The Foxes’ chances have been aided by the early-season struggles of Tottenham, Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United.All four have winnable fixtures to get back on track this weekend, but Spurs are most in need of a lift after a 7-2 Champions League mauling by Bayern Munich in midweek.No hard feelingsRodgers returns to Anfield for the first time since he was sacked by the Reds in 2015. The Northern Irishman has since rebuilt his reputation, winning seven trophies in two-and-a-half seasons at Celtic before making the move back to the Premier League with the Foxes in February.Since Rodgers replaced Claude Puel, Leicester have the third-best record in the league behind relentless Liverpool and defending champions City.A 5-0 thrashing of Newcastle last weekend saw Rodgers’s men open up a two-point lead on the chasing pack in third and they have shown their ability to test the traditional top six with a 1-1 draw at Chelsea and 2-1 victory over Tottenham already this season.However, Rodgers knows ending Liverpool’s unbeaten run at home in the Premier League since April 2017 is a much tougher challenge.“We just want to continue with our performance level. Liverpool are on an incredible run, they are great opponents to test and challenge the quality of our team,” said Rodgers.“We’re bringing a real positive mindset into our games, no matter who the opponent is.”Rodgers came agonisingly close to ending Liverpool’s long wait to win the league in the 2013/14, but said he feels no bitterness about Jurgen Klopp’s success with the Reds, so much so he rents his house to the German.“I was never going to be bitter,” Rodgers told the Telegraph. “That’s why I let Jurgen move into my house.”Seventh hell for SpursTottenham must respond to a 7-2 thrashing by Bayern Munich away at Brighton on Saturday © IKIMAGES/AFP / Glyn KIRKTottenham’s second-half capitulation to German giants Bayern on Tuesday has raised questions over whether Mauricio Pochettino can turn the tide in his sixth season in charge after a dramatic dip in form over the past eight months.Spurs have now won just three of their opening 10 games to the season and have lost 13 of their past 28 matches stretching back to February.Pochettino called for unity after Tottenham’s worst-ever home defeat in Europe, but to get the fans back onside they need a quick response against a Brighton side that have not won since the opening day of the season.Not so UnitedGobsmacked: Newcastle manager Steve Bruce accused his players of surrendering against Leicester last weekend © AFP / Lindsey ParnabyDespite their stuttering start, Tottenham are still two points better off than Manchester United in the race for a top-four finish, with the Red Devils off to their worst league start for 30 years.A trip to Newcastle ought to bring some relief for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.The Magpies are in turmoil on and off the field. St James’s Park has seen swathes of empty seats for the first time in years as supporters protest against Mike Ashley’s ownership of the club, while manager Steve Bruce accused his players of “a complete surrender” in losing four second-half goals to Leicester last weekend.However, even against such demoralised opponents, there are no longer any guarantees for Manchester United on the road.Solskjaer’s men have not won away from home in 10 games stretching back to March.FixturesSaturdayBrighton v Tottenham (1430), Burnley v Everton, Liverpool v Leicester, Norwich v Aston Villa, Watford v Sheffield United (all 1400), West Ham v Crystal Palace (1930)SundaySouthampton v Chelsea, Arsenal v Bournemouth, Man City v Wolves (all 1600), Newcastle v Man Utd (1830)0Shares0000(Visited 14 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

1992 ALL-IRELAND WINNER ROLLS BACK THE YEARS AT 49 FOR HIS CLUB

first_imgFormer Donegal legend Manus Boyle rolled back the years on Saturday when he struck the winner for Killybegs in their Reserve Championship clash against neighbours Kilcar. Boyle, 49, famously scored NINE points for Donegal and delivered a man-of-the-match display in the historic 1992 All-Ireland win over Dublin.Fast forward TWENTY-THREE years later and the forward is still doing the business for his club. In a very close contest Killybegs narrowly edged out Kilcar with Boyle showing all his class and experience to knock over a late winner for the fishermen.While most of his All-Ireland winning colleagues have been enjoying their retirement over the years and with many taking up management positions Boyle hasn’t hung up the boots yet.After notching the winner on Saturday he may be tempted to play on for another year at FIFTY years of age.As the old saying goes form is only temporary, class is permanent and in the case of Manus Boyle that is very true.  1992 ALL-IRELAND WINNER ROLLS BACK THE YEARS AT 49 FOR HIS CLUB was last modified: August 24th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:newsSportlast_img read more
