Paul George get MVP chants as Thunder roll by Jazz in playoff reprise

first_imgThe Thunder jumped to a 6-0 lead, causing Jazz coach Quin Snyder to call a timeout just 68 seconds into the game. Oklahoma City gradually built its lead to 17 points before settling for a 57-46 halftime advantage.“We didn’t do enough on the defensive end, collectively, and that impacts everything,” Snyder said. “We usually weren’t efficient offensively — either didn’t get a good shot or turned it over. You put yourself behind the 8-ball and you almost have to be lucky or perfect to get back in the game and we didn’t play well enough.”George, who scored 25 fourth-quarter points during a 47-point outburst in a win at Brooklyn on Wednesday, nearly reprised that performance in the third quarter.George hit his first 3-point attempt 50 seconds before halftime, then hit his next four shots from behind the arc en route to a 17-point third quarter. That helped the Thunder build their lead to 26 points near the end of the period and the Jazz never seriously threatened after that, although they did cut a 29-point deficit to nine in the final minute.“He was real balanced, under control, took open shots, knocked them down,” Westbrook said of George. “He played at his own pace.”ADVERTISEMENT Steven Adams had 22 points in the first meeting since the Jazz downed the Thunder in six games in the first round of last season’s Western Conference playoffs. Oklahoma City overcame a 4-of-18 shooting performance by Russell Westbrook, who nonetheless managed a triple-double with 12 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists.Oklahoma City has won 15 straight regular-season games at home against Utah, although the Jazz did beat the Thunder in Oklahoma City in Game 2 during their playoff series. The Thunder have gone 17-4 since starting this season 0-4.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 Chriss“I’m going to just play hard,” George said about the chants. “If that happens at the end of the year, then so be it. That’s the least of my concerns. Right now, I’m enjoying playing with this group. We’ve got a special group here. We want to win. We want to win big. That’s first and foremost. Anything else after that, it’s appreciated, but that’s not the concern.”Donovan Mitchell battled foul trouble much of the game but led the Jazz with 19 points, while Rudy Gobert recorded his 23rd double-double with 13 points and 14 rebounds.

(AP Photo/Kyle Phillips)OKLAHOMA CITY — Paul George heard the “MVP! MVP!” chants from the sellout crowd at Chesapeake Energy Arena, and while the Oklahoma City star appreciated them, he was happier the Thunder had just beaten the foe that ended their season last spring.George went 5 of 6 from 3-point range and scored 31 points, Dennis Schroder added 23 and the Thunder beat the Utah Jazz 122-113 on Monday night.ADVERTISEMENT Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Jae Crowder had 13 points and Derrick Favors had 12 for the Jazz.CLOSING TIMEThe Jazz outscored the Thunder 38-23 in the fourth quarter. Epke Udoh, from nearby Edmond, scored 10 points in nine minutes to spark Utah’s bench.“It’s good to see guys that compete and guys that contribute,” Snyder said. “Any time those guys, regardless of the score or situation, they come in the game, you expect them to play the right way and they did. It was good to see their activity. They really made an effort to get the ball to the rim and as a result they created looks for each other.”For a good chunk of the quarter, Thunder coach Billy Donovan stood on the sideline with a look something between bewilderment and frustration. But except for Westbrook, he didn’t bring his starters back into the game, choosing to let many of his reserves figure it out.“I didn’t think we defended the way we were capable of in the fourth quarter,” Donovan said.TIP-INS:Jazz: Mitchell hit a halfcourt shot at the first-quarter buzzer for his first points of the game, allowing him to avoid a second straight scoreless first quarter . Ricky Rubio, who had averaged 18.8 points during Utah’s previous eight road games, had 10 against the Thunder.Thunder: The Thunder are 14-1 this season against sub-.500 opponents, including the Jazz, who entered the game at 13-14 .

Promoted Police Officers to retain promotions – Harmon

first_imgThe Police Officers who were promoted by Acting Police Commissioner David Ramnarine in the absence of Police Commissioner Seelall Persaud will not be stripped of their positions. Minister of State Joseph Harmon made this disclosure as he addressed the media on Thursday.Late last month, Police Commissioner Seelall Persaud raised concerns over some promotions of senior ranks, a move that was made by Acting Commissioner David Ramnarine, while Persaud was on leave.Minister of State Joseph HarmonPolice Commissioner Seelall PersaudActing Police Commissioner David Ramnarine“Yes, in fact the Minister did advise cabinet that he did advise the Commissioner of Police and I think he produced his legal opinion that those officers that were promoted by Mr Ramnarine were to remain promoted. That their promotion should not be recalled,” Harmon stated.Upon his return, and learning of the promotions, the Police Commissioner had asked that the promotions be annulled. However, this was not done.The Top Cop had claimed that his temporary replacement was not authorised to make any such promotions.The matter has since spilled into the public domain and according to President Granger recently, the Public Security Minister had been tasked with investigating the matter.He said that when the Assistant Commissioner is acting in that capacity, it is expected that it is done in an affirmative and not passive manner.“Although there is a structure, there is also a convention that persons who are acting have to do their work in an affirmative manner and not in a passive manner,” said President Granger.He nonetheless opined that the matter is not insurmountable and while it is cause for concern, it is in fact nothing more than a “storm in a teacup”, adding “I don’t believe the problems are unsolvable.”last_img read more

Fort St. John Elks to host 2017 World Masters Allround Games

first_img“This was a vision created many years ago that we see now coming to fruition.  Being successful in securing these events for Fort St John is a wonderful example of collaboration with the Club and the City of Fort St. John,” she stated. “Regardless of their sport of choice, our youth will see first hand the opportunities that lie in front of them when they meet and watch these athletes.  For a community our size, this is spectacular.”As for the Fort St. John Elks, their season is around the corner as they will be hosting a speed skating camp from August 20-24. That will be followed by lap skating and training programs from September through April. Skaters taking part come from twelve countries and will be putting in their best efforts in four separate distances over three days at the Pomeroy Sport Centre.In a release Elks Vice-President Wim Kok said, “I think it’s awesome. It’s a great thing for the city to host this, I mean, how often do you have world championships or host world games. I’ve been at a couple of these events in Calgary and you have some really good masters. There were some former Olympians and world champions there.”The Elks have been determined in their efforts to land the event as they had applied two other times. Indoor facilities like the Pomeroy Sport Centre are said to be held in high regard because of the guaranteed ice conditions.- Advertisement -A firm date in 2017 has not yet been set for the event. It’s hoped that the World Masters’ will be able to be held close to the time the Oval Finale is taking place in Calgary.“We’ve bid three times and the first two times we didn’t get anything. Now there was an opening and we got it. We haven’t set a specific date yet because we’re looking at seeing if we can hold it a week before or after the Oval Finale in Calgary. That way the international athletes have the opportunity to skate in two big events within a week,” Kok explained.Mayor Lori Ackerman credited the work of the Elks staff and the City to make it possible to bring the event to the community and looks forward to having young people see the possibilities that could present itself in the future.Advertisementlast_img read more

Local anti-HST campaign shoots for 40

[asset|aid=2937|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=71e5b2a9963fd154e01fff653b138482-Stedel-recall_1_Pub.mp3] He says, in that event, organizers would likely start with Premier’s riding (Vancouver-Point Grey) and Minister of Finance’s riding (Vancouver-Quilchena). But, Stedel says if the government continues to ignore the will of the people, there may be a demand for further recall proceedings.Advertisement He says Peace River North is one of the ridings where the 40 % threshold needed to initiate recall proceedings could well be achieved.Canvassers will continue their efforts with events at the Lido Theatre on Friday and Saturday evenings (7-8 p.m.) and at the Midway Fair on Friday evening and Saturday from 12-8 p.m. The Anti-HST petition continues to garner support across the province, despite having already surpassed its goal in nearly every riding.- Advertisement -After originally planning on collecting the signatures of 10 % of eligible voters in each constituency, organizers raised that goal to 15 %, in case some of the signatures are declared invalid by Elections BC.The petition calls on the government to either introduce a bill to repeal the Harmonized Tax, or to hold a referendum allowing British Columbians to decide for themselves.The current Liberal government holds a majority in the B.C. legislature, meaning it could simply introduce a bill and then vote against it, effectively quelling the anti-HST campaign.But, the man in charge of the Northeastern B.C. anti-HST campaign says there’s more at issue than the HST itself. Alvin Stedel says any MLA’s ignoring such a widespread movement do so at their peril. Advertisementcenter_img By Jon Zacks and Adam Reaburnlast_img read more

Fantasy Premier League tips: The transfers to make in gameweek 14

first_img Out: Juan Mata (Manchester United) – £8.8m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Much is being made of United’s current style of football and it certainly doesn’t seem to be suiting Juan Mata. The Spaniard has just one goal (a penalty) and no assists in his last six league appearances. In: Philippe Coutinho (Liverpool) – £8.4m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Much is also being made of Liverpool’s current style of football and it certainly does seem to be suiting Philippe Coutinho. Jurgen Klopp’s arrival as manager has revitalised the Brazilian who has now scored four times in his last three matches. In: Sergio Aguero (Manchester City) – £13.1m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Think we’ve already covered this below… GET HIM BACK! Out: Graziano Pelle (Southampton) – £8.3m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Graziano Pelle is actually suspended for the Saints’ trip to City this week after accumulating one yellow card too many so far this season. If you need another excuse to get rid of the Italian he’s scored just one goal and recorded no assists in his last five league appearances. It’s probably time to opt for someone in better form… Out: Joe Hart (Manchester City) – £5.7m – Click the yellow arrow above, right, for more advice – Hart was substituted with a hamstring injury after 81 minutes of Manchester City’s Champions League defeat in Turin on Wednesday and looks certain to miss this weekend’s match against Southampton. If you don’t already have suitable backup, you should probably change him. 12 Out: Bafetimbi Gomis (Swansea City) – £6.7m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Ten per cent of Fantasy Premier League teams still have Bafetimbi Gomis in them – that’s BAFEling (sorry). You’d assume most of these are people who’ve stopped playing by now, but, if not, then heads need testing! Gomis hasn’t scored since August, get rid of him! 12 In: Toby Alderweireld (Tottenham) – £5.4m – Click the right arrow for more advice – It may be controversial, but, based on current form, we have to recommend this Tottenham defender as a replacement for the injured Chelsea captain. (Who’d have thought we’d be saying that six months ago!) Alderweireld scored against West Ham last week and, if Spurs play intelligently this Sunday, he could pick up a clean sheet this weekend. 12 In: Romelu Lukaku (Everton) – £8.9m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Talking of players in good form, Romelu Lukaku has scored four in his last three and has every chance of continuing this impressive run given Everton’s nice set of upcoming fixtures. 12 In: Harry Kane (Tottenham) – £9.5m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Harry Kane’s record in London derbies is impressive, his record against Chelsea’s defence at White Hart Lane last year was impressive and pretty much everything else about him is also impressive at the moment. Can the Blues, probably without their captain, keep him quiet? We’ll see. 12 12 12 12 12 Out: John Terry (Chelsea) – £6.6m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Also injured in midweek was Chelsea’s captain, John Terry. He seems likely to miss the Blues’ showdown with Spurs on Sunday and, even if he does play, is far from guaranteed a clean sheet! 12 In: Tim Howard (Everton) – £5.1m – Click the right arrow for more advice – A fitting replacement for Hart would be Everton’s Tim Howard. The Toffees’ upcoming run of fixtures is far from sticky and should allow for some strong defensive performances and clean sheets on Merseyside in the next few weeks. 12 12 Last week we told you to hold off on Sergio Aguero… that didn’t work out too well!The Argentine was forced into an unexpected, early return against Liverpool after Wilfried Bony was ruled out with an injury and, of course, he scored. City were thumped 4-1, as we all know, but Aguero curled in a cracking goal anyway and notched up a few fantasy points following his long-term injury layoff.Now, though, we will not be making the same mistake. We know Manchester City are on the comeback trail following consecutive defeats by Liverpool and Juventus this week, and, as they face Southampton and Swansea in their next two home matches, we can expect Sergio Aguero to be on fire.Also, if Aguero’s £13.1m price tag stretches your budget just that little bit too far we have two other, slightly cheaper, strikers who might take your fancy in this week’s recommendations.Check out the Fantasy Premier League transfers you might need to make this week by clicking the right arrow above… Out: Wilfried Bony (Manchester City) – £8.1m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Sergio Aguero is back in the City team and so Wilfried Bony is almost certainly going to be back on the City bench… If he’s fit, that is! last_img read more

Canyon star’s commitment takes him to BC

first_imgCompeting in Sunday’s 30th annual Senior High School All-Star game was the final chapter in many prep soccer players’ careers. For Canyon High standout Shane Anderson, representing the East All-Stars offered a step toward a promising future. Canyon missed out on the Southern Section Div. II playoffs, so Anderson hadn’t played in a competitive atmosphere in three weeks. His appearance Sunday at Monrovia High was the start of preparation to play next fall at Boston College. “I’m as excited as I am nervous,” said Anderson, 17, an All-Foothill League first-team defender. “It’s going to be difficult, but I’m going to work as hard as I can to earn a spot and keep it.” With Hart standout Matt Valaika electing to put away his soccer cleats in favor of baseball spikes when he attends UC Santa Barbara, Anderson has established himself as the top boys’ soccer recruit out of the Santa Clarita Valley this season. “It’s going to be great competition,” said Anderson, who plays for Santa Anita Soccer Club’s Futbol Club Barcelona Stampede in the under-19 Premier Division. “I know I’m going to be expected to take (my game) to another level in order to play. “Last year was the (first) year I played Premier, but it definitely helped me with my speed of play. I think it’s helped with my fitness and my training and getting the experience of playing the game in (college-type) situations.” Boston College struggled last fall – the Eagles were 0-6-2 in the ACC, 5-8-2 overall – but Savage believes being the competitive atmosphere will bring out the best in Anderson. “They play in a great conference where some of the best soccer in the country is being played,” Savage said. “What a great experience to be able to take part in. To have the courage to travel halfway across the world to do something you love is a wonderful thing.” Anderson is planning to study business and finance. “Boston College is really good academically, which was important to me, since soccer might not always be there,” he said. “I wanted to be able to use soccer as a steppingstone.” Erik Boal, (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
