MOST READ Marcos monument beside Aquino’s stirs Tarlac town Before the game, Brown said his experience was that teams playing on the second night of a back-to-back usually started quickly before getting fatigued. But it was the Knicks was started fast thanks to Anthony, who was 7 for 10 for 17 points as New York led 31-25.The Knicks led by 10 at halftime and Rose scored 10 in the third to keep Philadelphia from cutting into it. The Sixers were still down double digits well into the fourth quarter before Okafor, in a strong performance after the Sixers decided to keep him at the trade deadline, and McConnell led them in what became a frantic finish.“Again, it’s a tough game and the swings can go quickly,” Hornacek said, “and the biggest thing for us is we have to play the last five minutes of the game almost like it’s the middle of the first quarter or something with the execution and the quick movements instead of just walking it up.”TIP-INS76ers: Philadelphia had won four of its previous five games. … The Sixers have dropped six straight at Madison Square Garden.Knicks: Hornacek said Porzingis was considered day-to-day, with a possibility of returning in their next game Monday.

Winter was his former assistant coach and is considered the pioneer of the triangle offense. Jackson ended the tweet with a triangle emoji.SPEAKING OF THE TRIANGLEThe Knicks have started running it more, according to Hornacek. He says it not only benefits the younger players on offense but also helps the Knicks be in better position to get back on defense. The Knicks ran the offense that Jackson used to win 11 championships as a coach under Derek Fisher and Kurt Rambis the previous two seasons, but Hornacek had opened up the offense this season to get the Knicks playing quicker.

Chung : Vibrancy needed in cycling

first_imgInterim Jamaica Cycling Federation (JCF) president, Dennis Chung, is expected to be elected to the role permanently when the annual general meeting (AGM) takes places in August. Chung was given the role temporarily after less delegates than expected showed for the AGM in May. At that meeting, previous president, Kirk Finnikin, and his team stepped down, leaving the position open. As a result, the available members decided to put Chung in charge. “We had an AGM and there were some issues with voting. We didn’t have enough people to vote, so the president (Finnikin) stepped down with his team and they voted me to be interim president until the AGM, which is going to be August 13 or 20. “So there were not enough delegates and it would not have been fair to put a new administration in place without the full delegates to vote,” Chung explained. At the failed AGM in May, Chung was the only contender for the presidency, and he thinks he will be unopposed once more at next month’s election, although he would like to see others taking up the challenge and bring back the spark to the sport. “There was nobody else. I don’t know if there will be any contenders, but it’s anybody’s right. The (cycling) community will decide, and it will be a good thing if people contend. It will bring back vibrancy to the sport, and having a good administration is a big part of that. If people want to get involved and offer themselves, that’s great. “But we are looking at cycling development and how we want to structure it in terms of utilising the clubs. We are putting the whole structure in place. We have appointed an interim national coach (Carlton Simmonds), and we have put together a budget on the things we need and the funding needed,” he said. PERSONAL AMBITIONS Meanwhile, former president Finnikin did not seek re-election because he said that he has personal ambitions he wants to achieve, and being federation president would cause a conflict of interest. “I am not seeking re-election,” he said. “The time it will take to get cycling where it needs, there will be a conflict in terms of the time require. So to be fair to myself and the sport, to take it on 100 per cent, with all I want to achieve over the next two years, it is going to be tough.” He added that the incoming president will have his work cut out to move the sport forward. “The (proposed) cycling track is one of the focal points, and we want to identify a proper location for it to be built,” Finnikin said.last_img read more

London 2017 | ‘The future is bright’

first_img “As much as coach (Glen) Mills wants me to do, I will do. He is my coach and he asked me to help him out and be a part of Racers then it’s no question that I will. He wants me to come around and help out as much as possible so I plan on doing that,” Bolt said before underlining Mills’ work where his ability to produce his best at championships is concerned. “I know what it takes and I have a great coach so no matter what goes on, I know that he always comes through for me and figures out what we need to do to be better. So I’m always confident in myself and my abilities to come out and do great things,” Bolt continued. Bolt will also compete in the 4x100m relay for the Jamaican team before bringing an end to his career. LONDON, England: Usain Bolt is confident that Jamaica will continue to turn out top sprinters after his retirement and credited his coach for always getting him up to speed when it matters most despite his many injury setbacks. Bolt will feature in the men’s 100 metres heats today at the IAAF World Championships inside the London Stadium, a day before likely competing in his last ever individual event after a dominant career that has seen him break records in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m on multiple occasions while winning eight Olympic and 11 World Championships gold medals. The 30-year-old played a major role in Jamaica’s increased presence on the global athletics stage and has dominated the scene where medals are concerned. However, he has no doubts that the country will continue to enjoy success even after his departure. “We still have sprinters out there who can prove themselves,” Bolt said. “Yohan Blake is one of them who is really going to step up, Warren Weir is still here and we have Elaine Thompson who is doing really well so we will still be a powerhouse and hopefully there will be more younger stars coming up,” he said before adding that he would be willing to play a role in helping to develop the next generation of Jamaican stars.

Samuels blasts media for unfair criticism

first_imgLONDON (CMC): Veteran stroke-maker Marlon Samuels has praised the West Indies side for their dramatic comeback in the ongoing Test series against England, and has also defended his teammates against unfair criticism from pundits in the media. The Caribbean side was crushed inside three days by an innings and 209 runs in the opening Test at Edgbaston, but rebounded to stun the hosts by five wickets in the second Test at Headingley last week, after remarkably chasing down 322 on the final day. “People were writing off the players, but they are young, hungry and showing fight by winning a Test in tough conditions,” Samuels was quoted as saying. “West Indies are not on top and playing the best, but the media is too critical. They need to give these youngsters a chance because not every player starts out at the top of their game.” The young Windies side came under heavy criticism following the first Test defeat, when they lost 19 wickets on the third day to be dismissed for 168 and 137. Shai Hope, 23, who made 15 and four in the game, came to life at Leeds with scores of 147 and 118 not out – becoming the first batsman in 127 years of first-class cricket at the venue to score a century in each innings. Samuels said it was important that the young players be given time to develop. “In history, there are greats who started slow, and players who started fast and never last,” the 36-year-old Jamaican said. “It’s a game of glorious uncertainty and you have to give guys a chance to shape their destinies. Hopefully, Jason (Holder) and the boys can finish it off now.” West Indies face England in the decisive third Test at Lord’s, starting Thursday. Samuels, who played the last of his 71 Tests last November, will be a part of the Windies one-day side who arrive here later this month for a five-match series. His last ODI was nearly a year ago as he has been barred from selection since, after failing to make himself available for the entire Regional Super50 tournament – the Caribbean domestic one-day tournament – as per Cricket West Indies’ eligibility criteria.last_img read more

Sprint relay gold for Ja’s women

first_imgBARRANQUILLA, Colombia Jamaica’s women’s sprint relay put together three smooth baton exchanges on their way to winning the 2018 Central American and Caribbean Games title yesterday as the country increased its medal tally in athletics to 17. The team of Jura Levy, Sherone Simpson, Jonielle Smith and Natasha Morrison stopped the clock at 43.41 seconds as Trinidad and Tobago finished second with 43.61 while the Dominica Republic secured the bronze medal with 43 68. “We are very happy that we were able to pass the baton safely. The aim was to get a good start and the other three just maintain (the lead),” Simpson said after the race Their male counterparts were beaten into third as Barbados took the victory in 38.41 seconds. The team of Nesta Carter, Romario Williams, Rasheed Dwyer and Javoy Tucker registered 38.79 seconds. “We didn’t get the win but it feels great to win a medal. It is my first time representing Jamaica so I am really happy to win a medal,” Romario Williams said. “We didn’t get the best baton exchanges so we were playing catch-up from very early,” Dwyer explained. The women’s 4×400 team at one point looked set to secure the country’s ninth gold medal in athletics but was denied by Cuba on the anchor leg. Derriann Hill, Tiffany James, Alesha Kelly and Junelle Bromfield finished in 3:30.63. Cuba registered 3:29.48 as Colombia finished third with 3:32.61. The men’s mile relay team suffered a misfortune as anchor runner, Rusheen McDonald, was left flat on the track after he was tripped by the athlete from the Dominican Republic. The team did not finish the race. In the men’s triple jump, former Campion College athlete Jordan Scott leaped to a lifetime best of 16.82 metres but it was not enough to secure a medal. Cuba’s Cristian Napoles won the event with a leap of 17.34 metres. Saniel Atkinson Grier could only manage 1.82m for fifth in the women’s high jump. Commonwealth champion, Lavern Spencer of St Lucia, won the event with a leap of 1:90m. Men’s Misfortunelast_img read more
