Rockets rout Cavs, Nuggets rally past Warriors

first_imgHarden has been averaging 31 points a game this season for the Rockets, who won their fourth consecutive game and their 11th in their last 13. Ryan Anderson stepped in with 21 points.Since losing at Golden State on Christmas Day, Cleveland have been humiliated in several matchups against top level NBA clubs. They lost by 28 at Minnesota, 34 in Toronto, 24 at home to Oklahoma City and now by 32 to the Rockets.The Cavaliers looked nothing like the team that has made it to the last three NBA finals.“I’m lost for words,” James said.The defending Eastern Conference champs played their second game without injured all-star forward Kevin Love, who suffered a broken left hand earlier this week and could be out for two months.Isaiah Thomas scored 12 for Cleveland, who have lost 12 of 18 and don’t seem to have any answers on the floor for what ails them.“They should take us off every nationally televised game for the rest of the season,” said James. “We haven’t played good at all and we get our butts kicked every time we play on national television, so I’m at a loss for words.”In Denver, Nikola Jokic scored 19 points and added nine rebounds as the Nuggets came from behind to beat the Golden State Warriors 115-108.Denver rallied from a 12-point deficit in the second half to hand the Warriors their second loss in three games.“For us to come and get the defending world champs was huge,” said Denver’s Gary Harris, who tallied 16 points.Blake Griffin helped offset a poor shooting night by making a key three pointer with 44 seconds remaining in the fourth as the Detroit Pistons beat the Miami Heat 111-107 © GETTY/AFP/File / Leon HalipWill Barton had 25 points and Harris 16 for the Nuggets, who split the four games with Golden State this season.Kevin Durant scored 31 points and Stephen Curry had 24 for Golden State.“They hit some shots tonight,” Durant said. “We made plays but down the stretch we couldn’t get it done.”– Pistons come up clutch –In Detroit, Andre Drummond had 23 points and 20 rebounds and Ish Smith tallied a season-high 25, including a clutch triple in the final minute, as the Detroit Pistons beat the Miami Heat 111-107.Blake Griffin helped offset a poor shooting night by making a key three pointer with 44 seconds remaining in the fourth.The 28-year-old Griffin, who spent all eight NBA seasons with the Los Angeles Clippers before being traded to the Pistons on Monday, missed his first five shots from beyond the arc before making one in the final minute. He finished six-of-19 from the field with 16 total points.The Pistons won their third straight game since the trade and are 2-0 with Griffin in uniform as they pulled within a game of .500 with a 25-26 record on the season.Goran Dragic scored 33 points for the Heat, who have lost three in a row. Miami was missing centre Hassan Whiteside, who was sidelined with an illness.With the Pistons ahead by four and 44 seconds to play, Griffin hit a triple to give Detroit a 108-101 lead.Dragic responded with a four-point play, making a three-pointer while being fouled with 32 seconds left.Detroit ran the clock down and on the next possession Griffin found a wide-open Smith who sank his only three-point attempt of the game with 14 seconds left to restore the lead to six points.Elsewhere, Tobias Harris scored 24 points in his Clippers’ debut, leading Los Angeles to a 113-103 victory over the Chicago Bulls.0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000James Harden has been averaging 31 points a game this season for the Rockets, who won their fourth consecutive game and their 11th in their last 13 © GETTY/AFP/File / TOM PENNINGTONLOS ANGELES, United States, Feb 4 – Chris Paul finished with 22 points and 11 assists as the Houston Rockets became the latest team to pummel LeBron James’ struggling Cleveland Cavaliers with a 120-88 win on Saturday.The Rockets did it without a big night from James Harden who finished with 16 points, while on the other side James had just 11 points and didn’t play at all in the fourth quarter with the game out of reach.last_img read more

Wenger targeting deadline day move for injured Giroud replacement

first_imgArsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted he is targeting a transfer deadline day swoop for another top striker to replace injured frontman Olivier Giroud.The north London club confirmed this week that France international Giroud is set for a lengthy stint on the sidelines after undergoing surgery on a broken ankle, and is unlikely to return to action before the New Year.That leaves £35million summer signing Alexis Sanchez plus youngsters Yaya Sanogo and Joel Campbell at Wenger’s disposal up front, though the back-up duo are still largely untried at the top level.The Gunners have been linked with a sensational late move for unsettled Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani.And, asked if his priority ahead of Monday’s fast-approaching 11pm deadline is to strengthen his attacking options, Wenger admitted: “Yes, because we have a big injury there.“But we still have plenty of players on our bench with a lot of quality, today we had Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jack Wilshere, Lukas Podolski, Tomas Rosicky, Calum Chambers and Joel Campbell.“We’re still working very hard but it doesn’t depend only on us, you need all three parties to agree.“We are open, we work on it, but let’s not fool ourselves; Man City lost against Stoke and had strikers, it’s not just about buying one player.“But we want to and we are open to it. The pressure to buy is always there, we have to live with that, we try our best.”The Gunners’ lack of flair in front of goal was evident as they could only manage a 1-1 draw against Premier League newcomers Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Sunday.Sanchez opened the scoring after 20 minutes though the Foxes immediately equalised through Leonardo Ulloa, and Wenger believes the injury to commanding centre-back Laurent Koscielny in the first-half had a lasting effect on the whole team.He added: “After the injury to Koscielny we lacked that bit of sharpness and creativity to transform our possession into goals.“We weren’t cautious enough at the end, we could have maybe lost the game because we wanted to win so much.“Having three away games in the last two weeks, at Besiktas, Everton and here at Leicester, you could see we were mentally a bit jaded.”last_img read more

Maradona returns to Argentina for shoulder treatment

first_imgBritish director Asif Kapadia, who made the film on the Argentine icon, said on Sunday Maradona would need surgery.Local media say he will stay in Argentina for around 10 days before returning to Mexico, where his employers are waiting for him to sign a contract extension.The former Barcelona and Napoli player previously underwent an operation on his left shoulder in March 2017 in Dubai, where he was coaching the United Arab Emirates second division side Fujairah SC.While back in his homeland, Maradona took the opportunity to express his support for beleaguered center-left former president Cristina Kirchner, just five months out from presidential elections.Kirchner was in court on Tuesday for the opening hearing of a corruption trial in which she is accused of having favored a businessman friend in the attribution of public works contracts during her 2007-15 presidency.She is the subject of a dozen corruption investigations.The 66-year-old caused a surprise last week in announcing her intention to run for vice president having asked her former cabinet chief Alberto Fernandez to seek the top job in the October 27 poll.She had been leading some opinion polls ahead of current President Mauricio Macri.“Very happy with the news that Alberto Fernandez will be our new president, thanks to the GREAT Cristina,” said Maradona.The man best known for his “hand of God” goal against England in the quarter-finals of the 1986 World Cup, which Argentina went on to win, is a staunch supporter of left-wing politicians in the region.He was friends with the late Fidel Castro and even has a tattoo of the former Cuba supremo on his left leg.He was a supporter of late Venezuela president Hugo Chavez, as well as his successor Nicolas Maduro, and attended the funeral of Kirchner’s husband Nestor, who was Argentina president before his wife.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Argentine icon Diego Maradona has already undergone surgery on his left shoulder back in 2017, when he was coaching in Dubai © AFP / Ulises RuizBUENOS AIRES, Argentina, May 22 – Argentine football great Diego Maradona is to have treatment in Buenos Aires on an injured shoulder that forced him to miss a trip to the Cannes Film Festival where a documentary on his life was aired.The 58-year-old, currently the coach at Mexican team Dorados de Sinaloa, wrote a message on social media late on Tuesday saying: “I’m in Buenos Aires, on the way home.”last_img read more

Danis perfect in Canadiens debut

first_imgMontreal goalie Yann Danis had the NHL debut he envisioned. The 24-year-old stopped 32 shots in the Canadiens 2-0 victory over the host Atlanta Thrashers on Wednesday night. “It felt good to be back on the ice tonight,” Kovalchuk said. “We have a really good team right now. This was one game. We should just forget about it tonight, watch the video tomorrow, work hard and fix the problems and find our game.” Predators 5, Avalance 4: Marek Zidlicky scored a power-play goal with 6 1/2 minutes to play after Colorado goalie David Aebischer took a cheap penalty, helping Nashville stay undefeated. Rookie Marek Svatos scored his fifth goal in three games and Colorado dominated the first 30 minutes to take a 3-0 lead before the Predators came back. Hurricanes 7, Capitals 2: Eric Staal got his fifth goal of the season and captain Rod Brind’Amour scored his first, helping Carolina beat Washington. The Hurricanes finally found some success on the power play, as Staal, Brind’Amour and Matt Cullen scored with a man advantage. They were 0-for-15 in the previous three games, a drought that stretched to 17 before Staal snapped it. Wild 6, Canucks 0: Matt Foy scored the first two goals of his career and Dwayne Roloson made 33 saves to lead Minnesota over Vancouver. Marc Chouinard moved within one goal of Ottawa’s Daniel Alfredsson for the NHL lead with his fourth and Pierre-Marc Bouchard scored on a penalty shot in the third as the Wild handed the Canucks their first loss of the season. Sharks 4, Blue Jackets 1: Wayne Primeau scored two goals, Evgeni Nabokov stopped 26 shots and San Jose won its home opener. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Kovalchuk, who in 2003-04 tied Jarome Iginla and Rick Nash for the league lead in goals with 41, made his season debut after signing a five-year, $32 million deal with the Thrashers on Saturday. He received his work visa from the Immigration and Naturalization Service late Tuesday, clearing him to play against the Canadiens. Even without Kovalchuk, the Thrashers, coming off an 8-1 win over Washington, were averaging five goals and 38.3 shots per game this season. Kovalchuk, who didn’t start but entered the game early in the first period, couldn’t score on five shots. center_img “I imagined it,” Danis said after shutting down Ilya Kovalchuk and a powerful Atlanta attack. “It was a good start for me. Our team scored the first goal, so my confidence was there. … But it’s only one game.” Danis is the third Montreal goalie to win his debut with a shutout, following Wayne Thomas in 1973 and Bob Perreault in 1955. Montreal coach Claude Julien rested the team’s normal starting goalie, Jose Theodore. last_img read more

DD Fitness: Do fat loss supplements work?

first_imgThere is no end to the amount of weight loss supplements currently in the marketplace. Walk into any pharmacist, look on any website that sells supplements for training and you will be met with a huge choice of fat burners, fat binders, weight loss shakes, weight loss capsules, green tea extracts, Raspberry Ketones, Apple Cider Vinegar and endless more products that all claim to be the magic cure for fat.With so much choice and so many products on sale, you would have to think that there must be some of them that actually work. That’s what they would have us believe anyway.For example; Raspberry ketones, when present in high doses, can exert fat burning effects on various areas of the fat cell. However, all evidence for the effects of raspberry ketone has only been observed in a test tube and these same concentrations cannot be replicated in the human body, particularly through oral supplementation.What does this mean for them as an effective fat burner? It means that they don’t work.What about Apple Cider Vinegar? This has been touted to help with metabolism and fat loss. Do the claims hold up to the actual science? Vinegar (Acetic Acid) does not influence the metabolic rate. Nevertheless, one human study suggests that it may help with fat loss.All other studies on its effectiveness were conducted on rats and can’t fully confirm if the same effects would cross over to humans.There have been reports of oesophageal injury associated with apple cider vinegar tablets, although it is not sure if this is due to high acid concentration or due to product tampering.It may be best to use regular table vinegar, as that will get the job done.What does this mean for them as an effective fat burner? Although there isn’t a large body of evidence, there seems to be some effect to its use, however it was minimal at best. 1.2kg weight loss over a 12-week period isn’t worth the price that they put on the bottles and capsules.CLA is another supplement that claims to have magical fat burning properties. Evidence is too unreliable to conclude an effect of CLA on fat mass. There have been some claims of its effectiveness, but at this moment in time too much evidence concludes no effect.Fat burners that you will find in your usual bodybuilding or fitness magazine are completely overhyped.They usually double up as a pre-workout due to the amount of caffeine that is added to them. The added caffeine is also one of the reasons they are claimed to be good for burning fat and increasing metabolism.While caffeine does have some effects on fat oxidisation and there is mixed reports on its effect on the metabolism, it should be known that drinking coffee is a cheaper option than these overpriced ‘fat burners’ and there is zero evidence that these products as a whole, help with fat loss in any way.Weight loss shakes ‘work’ because they put you in a huge calorie deficit.The shake isn’t the magic here. It’s the huge restriction in calories, you could do the same with food.When it comes to supplements you should always use the golden rule; ‘If it sounds too good to be true, it definitely is.’There isn’t a magic cure that will work better than a good diet and exercise, so save your money.This isn’t what people want to hear, but it’s the truth so please don’t continue to waste your money on these and wonder why you can never keep the weight down.On a side note, the list of actual supplements that work and are proven to work is actually very small.Those with strong evidence of effectiveness are;Whey/Casein Protein, Vitamin D3, Caffeine, Creatine Monohydrate, Curcumin and Melatonin.Ones with weaker evidence of effectiveness are;Fish oil, Multi vitamins, Beta Alanine, HMB, Magnesium and Citrulline.That’s it.Anything else has very little evidence to prove any effectiveness.So, whether you are looking for fat loss, muscle gain or for increased performance, anything outside of this list is virtually useless.Also, there isn’t any one supplement that will help if your diet, hydration and training are not in place for your goals.#leanin2018If you have any questions you can get more information through the link below and you can find more information on supplements at examine.comhttps://www.facebook.com/pages/Rushe-Fitness/120518884715118DD Fitness: Do fat loss supplements work? was last modified: March 7th, 2018 by Emmet RusheShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:diet pillsemmet rushefat lossrushe fitnesssupplementsweight losslast_img read more

Townsend expects to stay at Tottenham

first_imgAndros Townsend has said that he fully expects to stay at Tottenham.QPR have been interested in bringing the winger back to Loftus Road since he impressed while on loan there two seasons ago.However, Harry Redknapp does not believe Townsend will be made available before this month’s transfer deadline and the Rangers boss is currently looking at other targets.And Townsend, who faces a battle to hold down a first-team place at Spurs, has been given no indication that he is surplus to requirements.“The club want me here and I want to be here, so that’s all I can say at the minute,” The Sun quote him as saying.“I’m a Spurs boy. I’ve been at the club since the age of eight so as long as I’m in the team, as I have been over the last few weeks, I’m not looking to go anywhere.“The last six or seven windows have been the same, with my name linked with other clubs.“But unless the club come and tell me they want me to leave then I won’t be going anywhere.
