Ross Taylor becomes New Zealand’s leading run-scorer in red-ball cricket

first_imgSydney: Ross Taylor has become New Zealand’s leading Test run-scorer, surpassing Stephen Fleming to be touted as the most prolific batsman for the Black Caps in red-ball cricket. Taylor achieved the feat on the fourth day of the third and final Test against Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground when he hit Nathan Lyon over mid-on for three.The 35-year-old has 7,174 runs from 99 Tests and 174 innings. He has scored these runs at an average of 46.28, including 19 centuries and 33 fifties. Fleming had scored 7,172 runs in 111 Test matches he played for the Black Caps between 1994 and 2008.Taylor struggled in the three-match series. He could have brought up the milestone in Melbourne but compiled only six runs. However, he is still New Zealand’s second-top run-scorer on the wretched tour with scores of 80, 22, 4, 2, 22 and 22 in the six innings he played this tour Down Under.In February, Taylor had also moved past Fleming for the most ODI runs by a New Zealand batsman, and has the most runs in all international formats for the Black Caps, passing 17,250 international runs in this innings, which includes 39 centuries and 88 half-centuries.Taylor will become the fourth New Zealand cricketer after Fleming, Daniel Vettori and Brendon McCullum to play 100 Tests when they take on India in Wellington on February 21.

Balanced Clippers put seven in double figures, stop struggling Nets

first_img“I think a lot of people slept on us when we got all these players but I think we’re getting better and better,” he said.Danilo Gallinari had 16 points and reserve Montrezl Harrell collected 15 points on 6-for-6 shooting. The Clippers made 19 of their first 26 shots and won for the 12th time in 17 games.D’Angelo Russell and Joe Harris each scored 16 for the Nets, who dropped their sixth straight.“We couldn’t stop them. We never found a solution to stopping them,” Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said. “They got downhill on us. We knew we had to keep them out of the paint and we never did. That was the story of the game. We couldn’t stop them.”The Clippers are still adjusting to a different team after acquiring new starters Tobias Harris and Avery Bradley from the Pistons, and Coach Doc Rivers said the Clippers were being careful not to call too many plays, since the new players hadn’t had enough time to learn them.

(AP Photo/Kathy Willens)ExpandNEW YORK — If this is what the Clippers can do by keeping it simple, imagine the possibilities once they know their plays.Lou Williams scored 20 points, DeAndre Jordan had 16 points and 17 rebounds, and they got plenty of help from a balanced lineup in a 114-101 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Monday night.Seven Clippers scored in double figures and the team shot 56.5 percent from the field in its fourth win in five games, bouncing back nicely from a loss in Philadelphia.Austin Rivers, who had 17 points, said even he was surprised with how easy the Clippers made it look, since they’ve had to slash their playbook in the aftermath of trading Blake Griffin to Detroit. Whatever they did Monday worked just fine.“Like I told them after the game, there will be a night when only two guys get big numbers and we win, and there’ll be nights where five, six, seven, eight guys will score in double figures and we win,” Doc Rivers said. “Doesn’t matter, as long as we win.”The Clippers were 15 of 21 in the first quarter, building a 34-22 lead. They kept it up in the second, pushing the lead to 45-28 on consecutive layups by Harrell, who made all four shots in seven first-half minutes. The Clippers led 66-51 at the break.They had 90 points after three quarters and when the Nets cut it to nine in the fourth, the Clippers scored six straight to take a comfortable lead again.TIP-INSClippers: Point guard Milos Teodosic returned after missing two games with a sore right foot and had seven points and four assists. … The Clippers won for just the second time in six games at Barclays Center.Nets: Forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (right groin strain) and guard Caris LeVert (right knee sprain) will remain out through the All-Star break. … Guard Milton Doyle, who has played in six games for the Nets, was voted the NBA G League Player of the Week for last week’s games.FALLING TOO FARThe Nets fell behind by 28 points on Saturday in a loss to New Orleans, wiping that out before falling in two overtimes. They played from behind nearly all the way in this one, mostly by double digits.“It’s definitely difficult right now. Nobody likes to lose, especially in the fashion we have been lately,” Joe Harris said. “It seems like we just keep digging ourselves holes and you can’t beat teams in the NBA when you’re trying to overcome 20-point deficits. It takes too much energy to crawl your way back in. It’s just getting repetitive at this point.”UP NEXTClippers: Visit Boston on Wednesday.Nets: Host Indiana on Wednesday.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
