The 21-year-old ended up playing one of the best games of his young career.Brown had 22 points and seven rebounds, Kyrie Irving had 11 of his 16 points in the fourth quarter, including two free throws that put Boston ahead in the closing seconds, and the Celtics beat the Warriors 92-88 for their 14th straight victory.Kevin Durant had 24 points for Golden State. The Warriors had won seven in a row.Playing his second game since suffering a facial fracture, Irving shed his protective mask in the second quarter. Then, with the game tied at 88, he was fouled on his layup attempt and calmly made a pair of free throws. Durant then came up empty on his jumper on the other end.Golden State led by as many as 17, but had to lean heavily on its reserves as its trio of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Durant struggled offensively.Curry, who returned to action after missing a game with a bruised right thigh, was the most ineffective. He was 3 of 14 from the field – 2 of 9 from the 3-point line – and had nine points.“It was just one of those nights,” Curry said. “We had control of the game despite how bad we all were shooting. We just didn’t sustain ourselves defensively.”Curry sat for a long stretch after picking up his fourth foul early in the third quarter.“We kind of fell out of our rotation in the third quarter,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “They were just tougher and smarter than we were tonight.”Boston came in limiting opponents to just 94.5 points per game, the stingiest mark in the NBA this season. It did even better against a Warriors team that entered the night averaging an NBA-best 119.6 points.Meanwhile, Brown said of best friend Steede: “He inspired me to come out and play and I played in his spirit.”They met after Brown transferred to Joseph Wheeler High School in Marietta, Georgia.“I remember I didn’t have any friends,” Brown said. “The first few days I sat at the lunch table by myself – I’’m super quiet and didn’t know anybody.”Steede noticed Brown sitting alone one day and told him he could sit with him.“Ever since then we’ve been best friends… He’s been my brother,’ Brown said.He said the circumstances of Steede’s death are still being determined and he declined further comment out of respect for his family. After the final buzzer, Irving walked over and embraced Brown.“Ky gave me the game ball and said, ‘This one was for Trevin,’” Brown said. (AP)[/av_textblock][/av_one_full]last_img read more

Yoshida ready to face pressure, overcome jinx in Rio

first_imgRIO DE JANEIRO – There will be more than meets the eye riding on freestyle wrestler Saori Yoshida’s bid for an unprecedented fourth consecutive Olympic title the Rio Games.Not only will the 33-year-old be aiming to achieve victory in what could likely be her swansong, but she has the extra mental pressure of trying to overcome a jinx of Japanese Olympic delegation captains who have not won gold since the 1992 Barcelona Olympics. And whereas Japan used to be a true Olympic powerhouse in freestyle wrestling, with high expectations to dominate the medal standings, the men in particular have fallen on hard times of late after failing to secure any Olympic berths at the 2015 wrestling world championships in Las Vegas.Eventually, they sewed up all six available Olympic spots, five coming at the wrestling world championships last September, with Rio Watari taking the final spot at 75-kg. A hobbled Sosuke Takatani punched his ticket to Rio de Janeiro in the men’s 74-kg freestyle category, with Rei Higuchi (57-kg freestyle), Shinobu Ota (Greco-Roman 59 kg) and Tomohiro Inoue (Greco-Roman 66 kg) all qualifying.Yoshida, who will be aiming to achieve her feat in the women’s 53-kg freestyle class at the competition getting under way at Carioca Arena in Rio’s Barra da Tijuca on Aug. 18, won her third straight gold in the 55-kg class as Japan’s flag-bearer at the 2012 London Games.Now as the first woman from her country to have the honor of being named Olympic delegation captain, she has a golden opportunity to break the hex that has dogged Japan since judoka Toshihiko Koga won the men’s 71-kg gold in Barcelona — a run of five consecutive Olympics in which the delegation captain has not taken home a gold.“I’ll win so we can end this jinx,” Yoshida said recently.With a track record that speaks for itself, including winning gold medals in 16 consecutive world championship and Olympic tournaments, the Mie Prefecture native was an easy choice for the position of delegation captain.Despite being the obvious choice, top Japan Wrestling Federation officials, in fact, had been less than enthusiastic about having their star athlete selected as either flag-bearer or captain because of the pressure involved.Yoshida herself, however, appears more than up for the challenge. Along with Kaori Icho (58 kg freestyle) she is aiming to become the only woman to have won four straight Olympic golds.“It is an extreme honor, and if I were asked about (being named Olympic delegation captain) I would think positively about it,” she said before being chosen with the caveat that her training take precedence over her other commitments.Compared with the past three Olympics, the situation for Yoshida has changed quite a bit. She is older, for one, and although she has maintained her legendary stamina, Yoshida is a marked woman against opponents around the world who have been busy studying video of her every move.“It will definitely be a tough fight,” said Yoshida, who barely scraped through en route to becoming world champion for the 13th time last year as she was unable to capitalize with her trademark tackles.No longer invincible, she had to regroup after losing in international competitions both after the 2008 Beijing Games and the 2012 London Olympics. Her last actual competition before heading to Rio came at the national championships in December last year.To avoid fatigue, she has opted to forgo walking in the opening ceremony on Aug. 5, deciding instead take a different route than in London, where she struggled for fitness after arriving about two weeks before she was scheduled to compete.This time, Yoshida will train in Japan until her departure to Rio on Aug. 10.“I don’t want to have any regrets when I go to the Olympics,” she said. “This might be a culmination of my career or I might end up having to retire without achieving a fourth consecutive win. I am ready for the challenge come what may.”The 32-year-old Icho, meanwhile, will be looking to take advantage of her uncanny ability to control matches and dispose of attacking opponents with counter maneuvers.But although she has won all of the Olympics and world championships she has competed in, there is no denying that she too has the bull’s-eye on her back.This was evident when the 10-time world champion suffered a shock defeat in a technical fall to Mongolian Orkhon Purevdorj at the Golden Grand Prix Ivan Yarygin in Russia in January, bringing a 13-year winning streak to an end.To prepare and regain her form for the Olympics she has trained overseas in Poland and hopes to settle the score against Purevdorj, who has also booked an Olympic berth.All eyes will also be focused on 22-year-old Eri Tosaka (48-kg freestyle class), who is determined to prove her dominance as a three-time world champion in her Olympic debut. The Aichi Prefecture native has a tendency for the dramatic, like when she came from behind to score a point against London Olympic champion Mariya Stadnik of Azerbaijan in the last seconds of the final for victory at the world championships last year.She has also suffered her share of injuries. The proof will be whether she is able to maintain nerves of steel for the quadrennial showcase, which is a heightened competition in every way compared with any international competition she has ever competed in before.The 27-year-old Takatani is being counted on to come through big for the men.The 2014 world silver medalist, who overcame ligament damage in his right knee to gain a berth in Rio, has the benefit of already having taken part at the London Games.He will be aiming to follow in the footsteps of his Takushoku University upperclassman Tatsuhiro Yonemitsu, who became the first Japanese man in 24 years to win a wrestling gold in London.

NPFL: MFM Managing Bolus’ Exit With “Restructuring” Excuse

first_imgNigeria Professional Football League side MFM FC are still running around circles about the future of Coach Tony Bolus.The gaffer was reportedly laid off after his side lost to Enyimba in Lagos on matchday 18. However, the club had not released a statement about Bolus’ situation as the former was nowhere on the sideline when MFM brought Kano Pillars’ 13-match unbeaten run to a halt with a 3-1 triumph on matchday 19 on Sunday. Coach Edmund was instead on the sidelines dishing out instructions asserting earlier media reports about Bolus’ sack. Read Also: MFM Sack Head Coach Tony BolusWhen Chairman of the club Barrister Davidson Adejewon was fielding questions from journalists after Sunday’s game, he said that Bolus’ future at the club was still under scrutiny and made clear the club had taken a silent stance on the matter for the time being while citing restructuring as the core reason for the club’s position. “At the moment the board has decided that the decision on coach Bolus or coach Edmond is not something to be granted to the press because it still remains an internal issue and until that is sorted out before we can be able to address the press on it,” Adejewon said.“We agree that there are some issues that need to be restructured in the club but that is ongoing and when we through we would be able to tell the press the appropriate position of the club.”He, however, confirmed that coach Edmund will be in interim charge while Bolus’ future is sorted out.MFM are currently sitting in eighth place on the log and will next face Kano Pillars at the Sani Abacha stadium on matchday 20.

Boyz settled and ready says Simpson

first_imgNational senior men’s football team manager Roy Simpson says that the players are focused and ready to secure League A promotion when they take on Antigua and Barbuda in their Concacaf Nations League match at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua today at 7 p.m. Simpson said that the inconvenience caused by hotel arrangements earlier this week has not affected the team’s mindset or preparations ahead of the match.“I don’t think that it affected the team because what we did, we tried to get the situation resolved as quickly as possible, which was done,” Simpson told The Gleaner yesterday. “I think that allowed the players and everyone to settle in and continue to pursue what we are here to get done.”The team arrived at the Starfish Halcyon Cove Hotel on Monday evening, but the rooms booked for them were not up to standard. Reports were that the rooms had unkempt bathrooms and were infested with mosquitoes. As a result, the technical staff cancelled Tuesday morning’s training session, reportedly due to lack of rest. The team was relocated to the Verandah Resort and Spa, and Simpson said that they recouped the time lost with an afternoon session that day after moving to their new base. They have since then resumed their scheduled training sessions without further setbacks. He said that the technical team is pleased with the performance in training and is confident that they will get the job done.“Based on the observations from my angle and coming out of the meeting with the technical staff, they are satisfied that the players have been doing well in training,” he said. “Everyone is ready and we want to go to get the three points and score more goals against Antigua.” Winning streak Jamaica beat Antigua and Barbuda 6-0 at the Montego Bay Sports Complex on September 6 and have since been on a four-match winning streak in Group C of League B. One of the goalscorers that day, Bobby Reid, returned to the squad after missing the last set of group games due to injury, and Simpson says that he foresees no setbacks that will prevent the Fulham forward from featuring. “The doctor didn’t give us any report of any player having any form of injury that would have sidelined them for the game,” Simpson said. “So I think Bobby is ready, fit to play, and based on what I saw yesterday morning, I would not be surprised if he starts.”Jamaica sit atop the group with 12 points and require only one point to ensure promotion to League A as well as automatic qualification to the 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup. The fixture is also critical to maintain the country’s top-six position in the region, which will ensure passage to the FIFA World Cup Qualifying final round, to begin next year.last_img read more
