Barea, Mavs spoil Leonard’s return with win over Spurs

first_imgBarea scored 14 of his 16 points in the second half and alley-oop dunk partner Dwight Powell had 12 points and 12 rebounds in the Mavericks’ 95-89 win on Tuesday night.“I understand the situation that I’m in and we’re thinking about down the road,” said Leonard, who had 13 points in 16 minutes — roughly the first 5 minutes in each of the first three quarters.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSBrian Heruela arrival bolsters Phoenix backcourt, defenseLeonard, who has been recovering from a quadriceps condition that causes pain and weakness in the knee, made his first three shots and scored six of San Antonio’s first eight points.It was his first action since Game 1 of the Western Conference finals last season, when he injured his left ankle in what was eventually a sweep for Golden State on its way to the NBA title. Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Leonard finished with a flourish as well, tipping a loose ball a couple of times to keep an offensive rebound alive and hitting a short jumper. But soon after that play in the third quarter, Leonard looked winded as he headed to the bench following a timeout. His night was over.“I’m just happy to be out there, just to play the game and enjoy the things I missed — missing shots, losing games, making mistakes, just everything,” said Leonard, who had six rebounds, an assist and a block. “I missed everything on the court.”Harrison Barnes scored 17 points while Yogi Ferrell and Wesley Mathews had 16 apiece as the Mavericks ended a five-game losing streak at home to the Spurs.Barea led the Mavericks with six assists, including two alley-oop passes to Powell. The second one put them ahead for good at 71-69 and was part of a 10-0 run bridging the third and fourth quarters. Barea started and finished the run with layups.“We have been waiting for a game like this where we go out and play a full 48-minute game,” said Ferrell, who had a career-high eight rebounds. “We’ve had some good games this season, but we put it all together tonight.”ADVERTISEMENT 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 Jo Koy: My brain always wants to think funny It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ‘a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ View comments James scores 25, gets 17 assists as Cavs beat Hawks LaMarcus Aldridge had 23 points and 13 rebounds and Rudy Gay scored 21 for the Spurs, who shot 29 percent while getting outscored 28-20 in the fourth quarter.TIP-INSSpurs: Bryn Forbes banked in a 3-pointer over 7-footer Dirk Nowitzki at the first-half buzzer to get the Spurs within 46-44. … Aldridge, Gay and Leonard were the only Spurs in double figures.

New Amsterdam rocked by a spate of robberies

first_imgPolice in Berbice are investigating a seven-man armed gang operating out of Mount Sinai, one of the suburbs of New Amsterdam, referred to as Angoy’s Avenue. One of the gang members was arrested on Friday 17 June.On the morning of Sunday 18 June, the gang reportedly responded by attacking four homes, successfully entering two and terrorizing the families, as they took away cash and other valuables.Divisional Commander, Assistant Commissioner Ian Amsterdam is of the view that Sunday’s attack was in retaliation of the arrest of a gang member on Friday.Veronica Balak, 69, of Lot 5 Mount Sinai, was reportedly beaten and robbed by the said gang. According to Balak who lives alone, at about 03:00h on Sunday she heard banging on her door and then four men appeared in her bedroom: “When them come in me tell them me na go holla, an they ask fo money and gold but I tell them that I is a pensioner.”The elderly woman noted that of the four men, one was armed with a gun, one with a cutlass and one with a crowbar. The defenceless woman related: “When me tell them that me na get gold, them start beat me up, dem knock me all up in me head….”She said that they ransacked her home and took all of the money she had which was less than $20,000.Veronica Balak was beaten and robbed of all her moneyWithin the hour, four other places were attacked: Budhan’s Housing Scheme, Mount Sinai, including a grocery store, and three houses.Oliver Ross says his wife was assaulted and a shot fired at him as bandits entered his home. He said it was after 04:30 on Father’s Day when three men entered his Lot 39 home while two remained under his house: “Two of them had guns and one was armed with a cutlass. By the time I heard strange sounds they were already in the house. They put the guns to our head and said bring all the money and the gold and everything that you got.”Ross said he appealed to the thieves saying that he and his pregnant wife were only middle class and not wealthy but it made no difference as there were threats made to rape his wife: “He grab my wife and pulled her by her hair and I tried to stop him and then he fired a shot at me.”He said the men ransacked the home during the five minutes they spent and took what they could. It was reported to Police that the bandits relieved Ross of ,000, a cellular phone, a television set, a tablet and a laptop computer.At Lot 31 Budhan’s Housing Scheme, Ingrid Soohan, 67, reported that bandits broke the padlock off of her gate and were attempting to get into the downstairs apartment. At the time, she was up already doing her morning chores and thought it was her downstairs tenant returning home. The elderly woman said she called out to her tenant, greeting him and that might have scared the bandits off.Also at Lot 9 Budhan’s Housing Scheme, householders were alerted after two men with guns had wrenched open a kitchen window. They called out to a neighbour who reported that they were two others under the house.After the alarm was raised the men jumped over a fence at the front yard and ran further into the scheme.According to Amsterdam, during last week Police officers were on patrol and in the vicinity of the Berbice River Bridge they intercepted a car and took the driver into custody after not being convinced that he was waiting for a passenger to return with his 0 taxi fare.However, the following day surveillance footage revealed that a car fitting the description of the one that was parked at D’Edward Village was the car whichBudhan’s Housing Schemedropped the men off before the robbery at D’Edward Village earlier that night.Based on information provided by the driver of the alleged getaway car, Police arrested a suspected gang member on Friday.The gang is also linked to a robbery of a New Amsterdam Market vendor at his New Street, East Canje home three weeks ago when $1 million in cellular phone cards were stolen.Meanwhile, two persons are in custody in connection with the Father’s Day robberies.

Apart from this initiative, the children are also assisted in other areas to improve their studies, sports and talents.“This is our annual Youth Expo that we have for the youths where we’ve been having them with different activities. We’re trying to reform the minds of the children and reform the children as a whole from a negative to a positive perspective.”She added, “It’s for about four to five hours just to put the stuff on exhibit so that the general public can see what these kids have been doing over a period of time and maybe bring recognition to them because most of the work was done by them.”Some of the groups that participated in this year’s exhibition hailed from Mocha, Tiger Bay, North Ruimveldt and East Ruimveldt.Cassie Douglas of the Mocha Rising Stars Group related, “We’re displaying handmade items such as earrings, breakfast settings, bags, vases and ornaments.”Meanwhile, Matthew Evans of the Tiger Bay Trendsetters Group explained, “I am showcasing the different varieties of stuff that was made by the children. For example, we have the table mats, mango achar, pepper sauce and plantain chips. All of these items are delicious and we’re just showing a little part of the skills we have.”Over the years, the division has also been working with youths from ages 18 to 28 in life skill training programmes such as cosmetology and, welding and fabrication, photography and machinery operation.last_img read more

Berbice pensioner found with throat slit

first_imgDead: Rookmin Jameer…daughter, friend in custodyA pensioner was on Friday found with her throat slit near her kitchen door in her Tempe Village, West Coast Berbice, Region Five (Mahaica-Berbice) home.Dead is Rookmin Jameer, called “Joycelyn”, 69, of Lot 303 Tempe Village, WCB.The woman’s body was discovered by her 47-year-old daughter, who lives in the house with her mother.According to Police, the woman was found at about 17:00h in front of her kitchen door with a gaping wound to the throat. The Police stated that nothing was reported stolen from the home nor was the house ransacked.Speaking with Guyana Times, the dead woman’s son, Shaieed Jameer, said he was at work when he was informed about the incident. He explained that when he arrived at the house, the Police were already there and he was not permitted to enter.“The police stop me so I couldn’t see she,” he related while noting that his sister reported that when she returned from church and found their mother lying at the door.Reports are that there was an alleged outgoing feud between the mother and daughter. According to Police sources, there was an alleged scuffle between the two women on Tuesday last and her other children had advise her to report the matter to the Police. However, on the day of the alleged scuffle the elderly woman was reportedly locked inside the house as a mean of preventing her from reporting the matter.“I live at Britania and they live at Tempe. They live together. One day when I come from work my wife tell me that she call home by we and tell she daughter thief she money,” the son stated.Police have since taken the daughter and her male overseas based Guyanese friend into custody. Investigations are continuing.last_img read more

Peru World Cup team guide – fixtures, kits, key player, probable line-up

first_imgRECORD IN QUALIFYINGIn the CONMEBOL qualifying, Peru sneaked into fifth place, pipping Chile to the spot on goal difference. They had a bit of lucky go their way with Bolivia playing an ineligible player against them, resulting in a default 3-0 victory, despite losing the match 2-0. Overall their record was seven wins, five draws and six defeats, with 27 goals scored and 26 conceded.Having finished fifth, though, they need a play-off to secure a spot in Russia. New Zealand were their opponents from Oceania and after cagey 0-0 first leg away from home they won 2-0 on home soil, thanks to strikes from Farfan and Christian Ramos.TOURNAMENT PREPARATIONSThe Incas played three matches ahead of the tournament against Scotland, Saudi Arabia, and Sweden. The sides offered varying tests and saw Los Incas fiddle with their choices against decent opponents, with the Scottish the only nation who haven’t qualified for the tournament. Gareca and his side will have got a feel for the standard of group opponents Australia by playing Saudi Arabia and got in a good rest too with the final match against the Swedes coming seven days before their tournament opener with Denmark.BASE CAMPArena Khimki, MoscowPROBABLE LINE-UPtalkSPORT is your home of the 2018 World Cup. Tune in all throughout the summer to hear live commentary of every game, and visit talkSPORT.com for expert views and analysis of the big games and key moments from Russia. ONE TO WATCHKeep an eye on Edison Flores. The 2018 World Cup has got the potential to be a breakout tournament for the left winger who currently plies his trade in Denmark with Aalborg.In the Peru squad, Flores is the second highest scoring having netted nine times and is also a creative influence when either out wide or through the middle. He’s not one to hug the byline and he’s often extremely happy to drift inside but doesn’t seem to like using his right foot too much, which could be exposed on the biggest stage of all.FIXTURESSaturday, June 16: Peru v DENMARK (Mordovia Arena, Saransk) – kick-off 17:00Thursday, June 21: FRANCE v Peru (Central Stadium, Yekatarinburg) – kick-off 16:00Tuesday, June 26: AUSTRALIA v Peru (Fisht Olympic Stadium, Sochi) – kick-off 15:00KITS 4 4 Peru are back and ready to take part in a fifth World Cup. talkSPORT.com takes an in-depth look at the Group C nation.MANAGERArgentine head coach Ricardo Gareca already has an interesting history with the nation he will take to the finals in Russia. Capped 20 times in the 1980s, he was the man who put Argentina through to the 1986 edition of the tournament – but at the hands of Peru. In the final match of the CONMEBOL Group 1 qualifications, his strike with nine minutes of the match sent the Albiceleste to Mexico, while the unlucky losers eventually missed out on a place via the play-off stage. Gareca, despite his heroics, was not picked for the 1986 tournament, missing out just like Peru.Now he will finally make his World Cup bow and take Los Incas there himself in a brilliant tale for all involved. Known as El Tigre, he’s built a team full of spirit and a will to win, despite lacking star names. If they retain this belief, they’ll prove tough opponents for Denmark, France, and Australia.CAPTAINIt had looked like Alberto Rodriguez would take the armband for Peru in the absence of Paolo Guerrero but the forward is now heading to Russia after a late reprieve.The Flamengo striker, 34, was set to miss the tournament but his suspension for doping has been temporarily lifted by a Swiss court. No only is he the leader of this side, he’s also the nation’s all-time leading goalscorer and is already in fine fettle having scored two goals on his return to international duty against Saudi Arabia.A player with extensive experience, Guerrero has played for Bayern Munich and Hamburg during an excellent career and he’ll be giving his all having been handed his last-minute chance to star at the World Cup.KEY PLAYEROne of the most recognisable faces of the Peruvian squad, Jefferson Farfan could be the main man for the South Americans. He’s hit some great form this season with Lokomotiv Moscow as they won the Russian Premier League. He scored 10 goals in 22 starts as he drifted around the first XI, playing roles as both a forward and as a right winger.His adaptability will make him essential for head coach Gareca, helping the Peruvians acclimatise to opposition tactics. He also represents a threat from set-pieces and holds plenty of guile, which could come in handy against the likes of Australia and Denmark. He was vital to their World Cup qualification and will be looking to give himself and his team-mates legendary status in their homeland with a good showing in 2018.last_img read more

talkSPORT host: Man City still in United’s shadow, empty seats a ‘disgrace’

first_img Sky Sports presenter apologises for remarks made during Neville’s racism discussion For all the excuses offered by the club and the fans, Cundy was adamant the City supporters must get behind their team.“The fans have got to get on board,” he continued. “I thought they were poor last night, not to turn up – those empty seats were a disgrace.“53,000 they got against Fulham so they’re there. Where were they last night?” predicted The atmosphere had a clear effect on the players, who looked poor on the night latest BEST OF 3 “The owners have got ambition for this football club, they want to be recognised as the world’s No.1 club.“It’s a global brand, but they’re never going to be a Real Madrid, they’re never going to be a Barcelona, they’re never going to be a Manchester United – so they’ve got to do it a different way. And they’re doing a pretty damn good job right now!“But the owner’s ambitions are far bigger than the fans. You can’t be recognised as a global football club in the true sense of the word, unless you win this competition. scrap After crashing out in the quarter-finals of the Champions League last season, the Citizens played out a disappointing 2-1 defeat to Lyon on Wednesday night.Much of the post game discussion featured heavily around the empty seats at the Etihad and the impact it had on the team.While former Arsenal man Adrian Clarke believes Guardiola is to blame for the performance, Jason Cundy was far less kind to City supporters.Speaking to Adrian Durham on Drivetime, he said: “They are still in Manchester United’s shadow and, as far as I am concerned, they will be there for a long time.

Muldertakes pain, dishes it out

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 ST. LOUIS – When Mark Mulder took a line drive off his arm in the second inning and doubled over in pain, the St. Louis Cardinals figured it would be a short outing for their 16-game winner. Instead, Mulder shook off the hard shot to his left biceps from Joe Randa – the same way he tossed aside a pair of poor tuneup starts – and put his team on the brink of a playoff sweep. Mulder pitched shutout ball into the seventh inning and the Cardinals once again built an early lead, beating the San Diego Padres 6-2 on Thursday for a 2-0 edge in their best-of-five NL Division Series. “Once the inning starts there’s so much adrenalin it didn’t bother me much,” Mulder said. “If I couldn’t have made good pitches I would have said ‘All right, I’ve had enough.’ “I didn’t want to come out of that game.” Matt Morris will try to clinch it for St. Louis on Saturday at San Diego against Woody Williams. Mulder was with the Oakland A’s when they squandered a 2-0 lead against the Red Sox in 2003. “We held home-field advantage,” Cardinals shortstop David Eckstein said. “One thing we’ve got to do, we’ve got to stay aggressive. We can’t wait to get over there.” The Cardinals, who led the majors with 100 wins this season, have advanced to the NL Championship Series four times in five chances under manager Tony La Russa. San Diego, which limped into the playoffs with an 82-80 record, hasn’t shown any signs of stopping them. “We’ve put pressure on that team, we just haven’t come up with the big hit yet,” Brian Giles said. “We’re playing for our lives now.” The 2003 Red Sox were the last of the seven teams that have rallied from a 2-0 deficit in division series play. Mulder was 16-8 in his first season since being acquired from Oakland, but gave up seven earned runs over 5 innings in two starts after the Cardinals clinched the NL Central. Plus, the lefty was a decidedly better pitcher at night (14-3, 2.26 ERA) than day (2-5, 6.86). The Cardinals’ first four runs came on balls that didn’t leave the infield – or in one case, even the catcher’s glove. Eckstein had a run-scoring groundout and a squeeze bunt, Yadier Molina had an RBI grounder and Albert Pujols drew a bases-loaded walk to finish Pedro Astacio after four innings. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
