But 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.

Thomas has been ramping up his activity, running harder and appears to be ahead of schedule to make his debut with Cleveland. Originally, the Cavs forecast he would be playing in games by the end of December but there’s a sense it could be sooner.“We know he’s making progress every day, which is good for us,” Lue said. “We’re excited about that. We want to make sure we do what’s best for him health-wise, not coming back too soon.” With the Cavs up 100-99, James began his one-man show with a pair of free throws. He dropped in a couple left-handed shots and then drained two 3-pointers — the last a step-back with 55 seconds left to give Cleveland a 118-107 lead.James’ solo performance enabled the Cavs to avenge a 112-107 loss in Brooklyn last month.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutKevin Love and Dwyane Wade added 18 points apiece for Cleveland.Rondae Hollis-Jefferson scored 20 and Joe Harris 18 for the Nets, who could do nothing in the final 12 minutes to stop James.James went to the locker room with the laceration to his face in the third after he appeared to take an elbow from Tyler Zeller in the lane.

Keane 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 say
TagsTransfersOpinionAbout 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.”
ESPN’s pre-season Football Power Index (FPI), defined as “a measure of team strength that is meant to be the best predictor of a team’s performance going forward for the rest of the season” has debuted. The rankings are compiled based off the results of 10,000 simulations. One of the categories you can rank teams in order of is remaining strength of schedule. Since the 2015 season hasn’t begun, the FPI strength of schedule rankings represent which teams have the toughest slates this year. Alabama tops the FPI strength of schedule rankings, and the top 20 is not surprisingly SEC-heavy. Twelve of the 20 programs are members of the SEC.

James Franklin BunnyEaster Sunday is tomorrow, and Penn State head football coach James Franklin is hosting an event for children at his house. It features candy, possibly an egg hunt…and Franklin dressed up as the Easter Bunny.Yup, that’s correct. Franklin dressed up as the Easter Bunny and took down the pinata containing candy for all the party-goers. Instead of using a bat, he laid out and tackled the pinata.

New 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.

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.
