LeBron gets stitches, scores 23 in fourth as Cavs beat Nets

first_imgBut shortly after James returned with some stiches and puffiness around his mouth, Cleveland went on an 8-0 run and headed to the fourth quarter tied at 77-all.James took over from there, delivering another tour de force performance that didn’t seem likely when he was being treated by the medical staff and the Cavs playing sluggishly.Cleveland built a nine-point lead in the first quarter and seemed ready to build on it when James made a surprising mistake.Alone in the frontcourt for an uncontested dunk, James tried to showboat and rocketed the ball off the back of the rim, a miss that stunned the three-time champion and the crowd of 20,000-plus fans. James then forced a long 3-pointer on Cleveland’s next possession and before long the Nets were even at 20-all when Zeller made his first 3 of the season.The Isaiah Thomas comeback is getting closer.ADVERTISEMENT Cleveland Cavaliers’ LeBron James (23) drives against Brooklyn Nets’ DeMarre Carroll (9) during the second half of an NBA basketball game, Wednesday, Nov. 22, 2017, in Cleveland.

first_imgKeane and Carragher clash over Liverpool’s title failureby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United legend Roy Keane has enjoyed a dig at Jamie Carragher over Liverpool’s title failure.Keane and Carragher were both in the Sky Sports studio analysing Manchester United’s latest defeat to West Ham in the Premier League. “I was in this position at Liverpool where you are trying to catch teams,” he said.”Sometimes you just need that two or three players who can transform them. I think of Luis Suarez coming to Liverpool.”For three or four years we were finishing sixth and seventh, where United are and then almost won the title.”Sometimes that one player can make all the difference.”But Keane hit back with his own response and suggested finishing runners-up would never be enough for United.”Jamie, you said almost winning the title. You didn’t win a title. You are talking about Manchester United here,” Keane said.Carragher responded by saying it would help United ‘bridge the gap’ but Keane snapped back: “But Liverpool are still trying to bridge that gap.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

16 days agoCasper exclusive: Man Utd must follow Man City with sporting director hire

first_imgTagsTransfersOpinionAbout the authorAndrew Maclean FollowShare the loveHave your say Casper exclusive: Man Utd must follow Man City with sporting director hireby Andrew Maclean16 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveClass of 92′ graduate Chris Casper says Manchester United should follow in the footsteps of their rivals by hiring a sporting director.The Red Devils have gone from perennial champions under Sir Alex Ferguson to floating in the Premier League abyss six years after the great Scot’s departure. David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho have been and gone, and current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could be next with his team sitting 12th on the table.Every United fan and their dog have had an opinion on where the club’s gone wrong, with recruitment the term heard frequently amongst pub banter and social media threads.United are looking for a sporting director to rectify the problem, with a range of names thrown around from RB Leipzig mastermind Paul Mitchell to ex-United leader Rio Ferdinand.But news of an appointment has dried up and recruitment has faltered as a result, as Solskjaer’s sudden shortage of attacking options can attest.United are undoubtedly leaps and bounds behind league leaders Manchester City and Liverpool, and Salford City sporting director Casper thinks filling the new position will allow for maximum efficiency throughout the club.Asked if it would be smart move, Casper told TribalFootball.com: “Yeah I think so. Especially when you look at Txiki Begiristain with Man City and Michael Edwards at Liverpool as their sporting directors. “I think it’s just about having that link with the manager, I think it’s really important. The strategic plan and the plan the owners are looking to achieve, I think that’s got to be clear in how you want to achieve it and you need to someone who is going to help co-ordinate that. “You can lack support for all the different departments, and especially for the manager on the side of recruiting staff, recruiting players and take away a lot of the nonsense that managers in the past have had to deal with, speaking to agents and trying to deal with players and things like that. “The head coaches that Man City and Liverpool have got are unbelievable coaches and they can focus on what they do best and that’s working with players on the training and getting the best out of them. And it’s clearly working for them because they are the best two teams in the league.”Solskjaer has intimated United would be targeting young and hungry British players in their recruitment drive this past summer.Signings Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James all meet those requirements, which Casper thinks is a wise idea for the future.He added: “It’s sensible. It’s got to be a long-term strategic plan. “It can’t be short-term, over one year or 18 months. It has to be a five, ten-year plan of what they’re going to do. You look at Manchester City, obviously not with British players, but they have a certain identity of a player that they want to bring in and they’ve been doing it for the last eight to ten years. “That’s a long-term strategy and plan that’s flourishing. That’s what Man Utd has to look towards now and hopefully this is the start of young players being given an opportunity. “It’s the biggest club in the world and they’ve got to get back to hopefully where they were seven or eight years ago, regularly challenging for the Premier League and Champions League.” last_img read more

Services sector activity returns to growth on surging orders PMI

first_imgNew Delhi: The country’s services sector activity in July returned to growth territory driven by new business orders that rose at fastest pace since October 2016, following which job creation picked up, a monthly survey showed on Monday. The IHS Markit India Services Business Activity Index rose to 53.8 in July from 49.6 in June, pointed to the quickest increase in output in one year. In PMI parlance, a print above 50 means expansion, while a score below that denotes contraction. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscal”PMI data indicated that the strongest upturn in new work for nearly three years led to a rebound in business activity,” said Pollyanna de Lima, Principal Economist at IHS Markit. Survey respondents linked the upturn in business activity to a promising government budget, strengthening demand and new client wins. New businesses have been secured from the public and private sectors, as well as domestic and international markets, they said, adding that new export work rose for the fifth straight month in July. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boost”These favourable results from the service sector were accompanied by improved momentum among goods producers, which combined showed the sharpest rise in output for eight months,” Lima said. Meanwhile, the IHS Markit India Composite PMI Output Index, that maps both the manufacturing and services industry, touched an eight-month high of 53.9 in July from 50.8 in June, as aggregate new orders rose to the greatest extent since last November. Moreover, job creation picked up to the strongest since early-2011 in response to strengthening demand conditions and upbeat predictions for the economic outlook. “India’s labour market continues to go from strength-to-strength, with the pace of service sector job creation, the highest in over eight years. Ongoing expansions in the employment base should support household spending and consumer confidence in the near-term,” Lima said. The survey further noted that the July data indicated an improvement in business optimism across the service economy and companies expect advertising efforts and strengthening market conditions to support growth in the coming 12-month period. Experts believe that the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) will continue with its dovish stance in the policy review meet that kicked off on Monday to boost slowing economic growth. In the June review, RBI had cut key lending rates by 0.25 per cent for the third time this year to spur economic growth.last_img read more

Defensive struggles cost Buckeyes in loss to Spartans

Junior linebacker Ryan Shazier (2) and redshirt-junior cornerback Bradley Roby (1) make a tackle during the Big Ten Championship Game Dec. 7 in Indianapolis. OSU lost to Michigan State, 34-24. Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorINDIANAPOLIS – The Ohio State defense allowed six touchdowns and 603 total yards to the Michigan offense in the two teams’ regular-season finale Nov. 30, but that didn’t cost OSU its chance at a second consecutive undefeated season.One week later, the 34 points it gave up to the Michigan State offense in the Big Ten Championship Game did.That defense allowed 438 total yards, four touchdowns and two field goals Saturday as OSU (12-1, 8-1) fell to the Spartans (12-1, 9-0), 34-24.Although the Buckeyes were able to score 24 consecutive points and put up 374 total yards against a Spartans defense that came into the game allowing just 11.8 points and 237.7 total yards per game, the plays allowed by its own defense proved to be too much.OSU gave up five plays of 20 or more yards to the Spartans on Saturday. Three of those — a 72-yard pass from Michigan State redshirt-sophomore quarterback Connor Cook to redshirt-junior wide receiver Keith Mumphery, a 33-yard pass from Cook to redshirt-junior wide receiver Tony Lippett and a 26-yard run by redshirt-junior running back Jeremy Langford — were touchdowns. A 48-yard pass completion from Cook to sophomore wide receiver Macgarrett Kings Jr. set up the Spartans’ other touchdown, while a 34-yard run by Langford set up one of the Spartans’ field goals.“It is what it is,” defensive coordinator Luke Fickell said of his unit’s struggles. “Guys got to make plays. We got to put them in situations where they can make plays. There’s no finger-pointing.”For the second straight week, the OSU defense allowed its opponent’s quarterback to have a career-best performance. After giving up 451 passing yards and four touchdowns to Michigan redshirt-junior quarterback Devin Gardner Nov. 30, the Buckeyes allowed Cook to throw for 304 yards.“Disappointed with our pass defense,” coach Urban Meyer said after Saturday’s loss. “We have to get this fixed. We’re going to get back to work.”Junior linebacker Ryan Shazier said the defense’s struggles to defend the pass against Michigan State were a result of miscommunication.“We just got to do better,” Shazier said. “Everybody did their best out there, and we just got to rally up and just get ready for the next week, just keep practicing.”That struggling pass defense’s cause was not helped when redshirt-junior cornerback Bradley Roby went down with a knee injury in the third quarter. He would eventually return to the game, but Meyer said it hurt the OSU defense not to have him on the field for a stretch.“Take a great player off the field, that’s an issue,” Meyer said of Roby, adding that sophomore cornerback Armani Reeves “didn’t screw it up” and played fine when he entered the game in Roby’s place.Although the Michigan State offense ranks just 83rd nationally with 384.6 total yards per game and 60th nationally with 29.8 points per game, Fickell said the quality of that unit was another factor in OSU’s defensive struggles.“You got to give (Michigan State) credit,” Fickell said. “They did a good job. (Cook) threw the ball in the right spots and guys got to cover, guys got to rush, guys got to get there when they pressure.”Still, as OSU prepares to finish its season in what will likely be a BCS bowl game, its defense has to bounce back. After giving up 34 or more points just twice in its first 11 games, OSU has allowed that many points in each of its last two games.Fickell said the defense has to “get better as a group.”“Football’s the greatest team sport known to man because it takes 11 guys,” Fickell said. “You have 10 (defensive players playing well) out there and they’re going to find that one guy. That’s what we got to make sure we do a better job (of) is all stick together through those adverse situations.” read more

Mens Volleyball Ohio State regroups before road trip against No 5 UCLA

Freshman outside hitter Sean Ryan (10) attacking the ball against Loyola on Sunday, Feb. 24, 2019 at St. John Arena in Columbus, Ohio. Credit: Kaycie Golic | For The LanternAfter splitting a home series with McKendree this past weekend, the Ohio State men’s volleyball team heads to Los Angeles having brought back a few key players in preparation for weekend matchups against No. 5 UCLA and No. 11 USC. The Buckeyes (6-12, 2-6 MIVA) enter the road trip having reinserted sophomore outside hitter Jake Hanes into the lineup. Hanes has accrued 47 kills in his first two matches since coming back from injuring his foot in the Jan. 26 match against Ball State. Also back for the Buckeyes are junior setter Andrew Hillman, who returned on Sunday from an injury he sustained in December during training, and sophomore outside hitter Martin Lallemand, who missed Sunday’s match against McKendree due to illness. Ohio State head coach Pete Hanson said trying to find consistency has been extremely difficult with a lineup that seems to change every weekend. “It’s been a real challenge, but I think the guys have handled it as well as they could,” Hanson said. “Not to let them off the hook and say, ‘Hey, it’s a real anomaly,’ but at the same point and time, we’ve also tried to tell them, ‘Hey, there aren’t many teams that are down three or four starters, let alone, sometimes just one starter,’ and that’s what we’ve had to deal with.” Among the starters still injured, junior outside hitter Reese Devilbiss is working through an undisclosed injury, while senior setter Sanil Thomas is working to return to the lineup after injuring his hand in late January. While the Buckeyes have struggled with consistency for much of this season, UCLA (14-4, 6-0 MPSF) has been drowning in it. The Bruins are on a four-match winning streak and their Jan. 19 loss to No. 1 Long Beach State is their only loss at home this season. Junior middle blocker Daenan Gyimah leads the Bruins offensively, totalling 234 points on 190 kills, 17 aces and 48 total blocks. Defensively, senior setter Micah Ma’a is a top contributor, providing 129 digs and 35 total blocks in support. On the other hand, USC (9-7, 3-3 MPSF) has had an up-and-down season thus far. After opening the year with a 7-4 record, three-straight losses to then-No. 9 Stanford, then-No. 8 BYU and then-No. 6 UCLA brought the Trojans even before winning their past two matches against Concordia and then-No. 4 Pepperdine. The Trojans are led by redshirt senior outside hitter Jack Wyett with 181 kills, adding 10 aces and 44 digs. Senior Ryan Moss leads the team defensively with 34 total blocks and 76 digs. Ohio State is hoping the offensive production from Hanes and Lallemand, with 180 kills and 137 kills, respectively, can power the Buckeyes to a couple of road victories. But to have success, they’ll have to get used to being set by Hillman, who has taken over as Ohio State’s full-time setter in the absence of Thomas. Despite the tough competition and the constant lineup changes, Hillman said the team will be ready to play this weekend. “We’re excited,” Hillman said. “We really have nothing to lose right now. We’re going to go out there and play as hard as we can.” Ohio State will face No. 5 UCLA at 8 p.m. Friday and No. 11 USC at 11 p.m. Saturday in Los Angeles. read more

Ultimately, though, Disney Plus silos superheroes and princesses in one place, and if you can’t afford it, well, too bad, kids — no Frozen for you.Disney also promises Hulu and ESPN bundled in with your Disney Plus subscription, which means the kids can watch Frozen while the grownups get stuck in The Handmaid’s Tale and your sport of choice. As someone who’s expecting my first child in a matter of weeks, that looks like a pretty attractive way to spend seven bucks.Speaking of the price, it’s worth noting a very, very big caveat from Disney’s announcement.

Which means not only do I need to start saving for my unborn child’s college fund, like, yesterday, but I also need to brace myself for the subscription hikes you just know are coming.Although I can’t help wondering if my daughter is going to grow up in some kind of Disneyfied cultural hegemony, where all entertainment is fed directly into her neural lattice from a giant transmitter beaming from the Cinderella Castle on the moon.
