James said he took a knee to the quad muscle but hoped to be fully recovered before playing the Thunder on Tuesday night.“Baynes is a big boy. He should be on ’Game of Thrones,’” James said. “Him and Steven Adams, and I’ve got to see him next.”IT SUPPORTThe trades mooted a mini controversy over whether the Celtics would honor Isaiah Thomas in his return to Boston. A fan favorite during his two-plus seasons in green, Thomas was traded last summer in the deal that brought Irving to the Celtics.Thomas balked at being recognized on his first visit back with the Cavaliers because he was injured. And Pierce balked at sharing the stage with him on Sunday, Cleveland’s only other trip to Boston.But Thomas was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers at the deadline, meaning he isn’t scheduled to return to TD Garden this year.SMART UPDATEStevens said Marcus Smart continues to recover from a lacerated right hand, which has kept him out since he cut his hand on broken glass at the team hotel on Jan. 24 and needed stitches to close the wound.“Not going to expect to see him on Wednesday night,” Stevens said. “Hopeful that he will be back and ready to go after the All-Star break.

View comments Cleveland Cavaliers’ LeBron James (23) drives past Boston Celtics’ Jayson Tatum during the second quarter of an NBA basketball game in Boston, Sunday, Feb. 11, 2018. (AP Photo/Michael Dwyer)BOSTON — LeBron James led the new-look Cavaliers to a blowout in Boston with an individual performance reminiscent of the rivalry’s heyday.And this time, Paul Pierce was sitting courtside in street clothes, unable to do anything about it.ADVERTISEMENT OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson As the Cavaliers opened a 27-point lead midway through the fourth, the crowd began chanting “We want Paul Pierce!” But he remained in his baseline seat, awaiting the postgame ceremony that would raise his No. 34 to the TD Garden rafters — the 23rd person in the history of the NBA’s most-decorated franchise to be so honored.“It definitely gave me chills, especially with LeBron out there,” Pierce told reporters afterward. “I wanted to be out there.”The current Celtics, who have spent much of the season in first place in the East, could have used him.“Yeah, we stunk,” coach Brad Stevens said. “But they were really good. They had a lot to do with that.”PLAYOFF RACEADVERTISEMENT With the former Celtics great waiting to see his No. 34 raised to the Boston Garden rafters, James shook off a first-quarter leg injury to score 24 points with 10 assists and eight rebounds to give Cleveland a 121-99 victory on Sunday.In their first appearances since being acquired at the trade deadline, Jordan Clarkson scored 17 points, Rodney Hood had 15, George Hill had 12 and Larry Nance Jr. scored five. The foursome practiced with the Cavs for the first time on Saturday.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folk“I know the guys that are here are very excited about this opportunity,” James said. “It’s my job to as the leader of this team to make sure that I acclimate the new four guys to be around a culture that’s built around winning.”James scored 13 in the second quarter — eight of them during a 13-2 run that turned a one-point deficit into a double-digit lead. The Celtics made it 64-55 on the first basket of the third quarter but never got within 10 again. Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Terry Rozier scored 21 with nine assists and Kyrie Irving scored 18 against his former team before sitting out the fourth quarter. The Celtics have lost three of four to fall behind Toronto in the Eastern Conference playoff race.The Cavaliers, who have won three straight, are 5½ games behind Boston. To help make a push for their fourth straight NBA finals, Cleveland traded away six players and acquired four at the deadline.“All of our new guys performed and played well,” coach Tyronn Lue said. “So that’s a good sign.”THE TRUTHPierce watched the game from a baseline seat, under the basket where the Celtics scored 42 points in the fourth quarter of Game 6 of the finals to clinch their 17th NBA championship. On the other side of the basket were former coach Doc Rivers and former teammates Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo and Antoine Walker.Timeouts featured tribute videos from Rivers, Magic Johnson, Kobe Bryant and Pierce’s college coach, Roy Williams.After his family joined him in hoisting the retired number banner to the rafters, Pierce said having his number retired by the NBA’s most-decorated franchise is the ultimate honor — bigger than the Hall of Fame.“When you’re forever with the Celtics, you’re forever,” he said.JAMES INJURYJames banged into Aron Baynes in the lane with about five minutes left in the first quarter and hobbled off the court, favoring his right leg. He came back in with nine minutes left in the half and hit a jumper to tie it 40-all before his outburst that helped the Cavs pull away.

Potential end of Russia anti-doping suspension sparks outcry

It said the proposal would prevent the undoing of the progress the agency has made since its suspension in 2015 following the uncovering of a state program designed to help athletes cheat without getting caught, all in the name of winning medals at the Olympics and other major events.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissA day after the compliance committee’s recommendation, a key member of the panel, Olympic champion cross-country skier Beckie Scott, resigned .On Monday, iNADO — which represents anti-doping operations in 67 countries — issued a two-page news release.

The recommendation, iNADO said, was made “simply out of expedience pandering to the will of a powerful nation.”The news release came shortly after a British representative on the WADA athletes’ commission, Vicki Aggar, added her name to the growing list of those upset with the prospect, telling BBC Sport the recommendation is “a shifting of the goalposts, a fudge, an unacceptable compromise.”At issue are two critical elements to RUSADA’s “road map” to compliance:—That Russian entities publically accept the findings in an investigation by Richard McLaren, who concluded the government directed the doping program. WADA has since shifted this, requiring that Russia accept findings from a less-critical report commissioned by the International Olympic Committee.—That Russia hand over data and samples that could be used to corroborate evidence of doping. Russia’s sports minister has agreed to do this at a still-undecided date — and after RUSADA is reinstated.ADVERTISEMENT FILE – In this June 5, 2018, file photo, Beckie Scott, World Anti-Doping Agency athlete committee chairperson, Beckie Scott, speaks at a news conference following the agency’s first Global Athlete Forum in Calgary, Alberta. Scott told the Associated Press Saturday, Sept.15, 2018, that she left her position on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s six-person compliance review committee. Her departure came after WADA made changes to some of the most stringent requirements to bring the Russian anti-doping agency back into compliance following a nearly three-year suspension. (Jeff McIntosh/The Canadian Press via AP, File)The potential reinstatement of Russia’s anti-doping agency drew further outcry Monday, this time from a worldwide group of drug-fighting organizations that portrayed it as the result of an eleventh-hour deal designed to appease a powerful nation.The Institute of National Anti-Doping Organizations lashed out at a recommendation to end the nearly three-year suspension of RUSADA. In a news release, iNADO said World Anti-Doping Agency officials had told European government representatives as recently as last week that the issue would not be decided at Thursday’s meeting of the WADA executive committee.ADVERTISEMENT Barcelona still far from its best despite perfect start View comments In defending its position, WADA said bringing a revamped RUSADA back into the fold “was never going to be achieved without small degrees of movement on both sides.”INADO disagreed, saying international anti-doping rules provide “no opportunity for those bound (notably athletes) to negotiate changes in the wording of the Code to suit their purpose.”“The Code stands and must be adhered to, and so should the ‘Road Map’ for Compliance (as WADA had assured the world it would be),” iNADO said.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil MOST READ Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Corentyne businessman charged with murder of fisherman

first_imgPiracy massacreA Corentyne, Berbice businessman was on Wednesday refused bail when he appeared at the Springlands Magistrate’s Court accused of killing a fisherman during the recent piracy attack.Nakool Manohar, called “Fyah”, 39, the alleged mastermind was not required to plea to the indictable charge. Appearing before Magistrate Rabindranauth Singh, Manohar remained emotionless in the docks as the charge was read to him. It is alleged that between April 26 and May 3, 2018, while in Guyana’s territorial waters, he murdered Tilacknauth Mohabir, called “Caiman”.The businessman was remanded. The case will continue on June 13.He was also further remanded to the two previous charges of robbery on the highNakool Manohar called “Fyahseas committed in 2015 and 2016 respectively.Two murder chargesHeavy drama unfolded inside the packed courtroom and the prosecutor presented two murder charges to the court for Mohabir. However, the defendant’s legal representative, Attorney Joel Edmond, successfully argued that one of the charges was bad in law and so had to be withdrawn.The second count of murder carried the same facts and was for that of Mahesh Sarjoo, called “Cooba”Edmond argued that in a haste to pin charges, the Police placed improper documentation before the court. He argued that the law does not permit for the two charges to be lumped together. “They have to be individual charges… I am therefore asking this court to dismiss the charge against my client. I am submitting that based on the facts or lack of facts, the court should discharge this matter.”However, Police Prosecution, Inspector Orin Joseph requested that the name be amended on the charges and had the name of Sarjoo be struck out.The Magistrate allowed the amendment and Manohar was then read the charge of murder of Mohabir.The accused is expected to be back in court shortly to have another murder charge read to him.During the hearing, Attorney Edmond questioned the legality of the trial taking place in Guyana, when the alleged offence was committed in Suriname territority.However, Inspector Joseph cited the Piracy Act of 2008 under Chapter 14 which states: “Where an offence under this Act is committed outside Guyana, the person committing such offence may be dealt with in respect of the commission of the offence as if the offence had been committed at any place within Guyana or its territorial waters.Mohabir and Sarjoo’s bodies were the only two that were positively identified by relatives in Suriname after the attack by pirates on four fishing boats at a place called Wia Wia Bank in the Atlantic Ocean.Reports coming out of Suriname indicated that 20 fishermen were the victims of that attack and 11 are still missing and feared dead.Meanwhile, one of the two other bodies found is still to be identified and that is awaiting DNA results. The other was that of Gowkaran Outar whose body was found on the Number 63 Beach. He was identified by a tattoo on his upper body.Relatives clashOutside the Springlands Magistrate’s Court, relatives and supporters of the accused flocked the courtyard which was filled with relatives of some of the missing fishermen and those of Mohabir and Sarjoo.A heated exchange ensued between the mother of the accused and relatives of some of the missing men.

Coleman confirmed as Sunderland boss

first_imgThe former Fulham boss has agreed a two-and-half year contract with Sunderland.The 47-year-old is the Black Cats’ ninth manager in the last six seasons and replaces Simon Grayson, who was sacked at the end of last month after less than half a season in charge.“It’s an honour to be appointed the manager of Sunderland AFC and I’m over the moon that the club believes I am the right man,” Coleman said after taking training on Sunday.“The club worked incredibly hard to make sure we were a good fit and to show me the potential that can be achieved here.“I believe that every person at this football club, every player and every supporter has a part to play in getting us back to where we belong.”Coleman arrives in the north-east after six years as Wales boss, during which time he managed his country into the top 10 of FIFA’s world rankings after an unexpected run to the Euro 2016 semi-finals.Despite that success, Coleman was unable to lead Wales to next year’s World Cup after failing to secure a place in the play-offs and reports about his likely departure surfaced immediately after that disappointment.With the Wales chapter of his career now over, Coleman has joined a Sunderland side at their lowest ebb for years.A 2-2 draw against Millwall on Saturday gave them an unwanted English record of 20 consecutive home games without a win.Sunderland, relegated from the Premier League under David Moyes’s management last season, are bottom of the Championship table.They are four points from safety heading into Coleman’s first match in charge away to Aston Villa on Tuesday.Sunderland chief executive Martin Bain, who led the search for Grayson’s successor, said: “The football club has conducted a thorough process over the last three weeks to identify the best manager for the job, before and after which Chris was the clear first choice.“We are delighted that he and Kit Symons, his assistant manager, have joined us, and are now focused on working together to get the football club moving in the right direction.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Chris Coleman is Sunderland’s ninth manager in the last six seasons © AFP/File / FRANCK FIFELONDON, United Kingdom, Nov 19 – Former Wales coach Chris Coleman was confirmed as manager of Championship strugglers Snderland on Sunday.Coleman’s move to the Stadium of Light was widely expected after he resigned from the Wales job earlier this week.last_img read more
