Bradley Beal’s scoring barrage propels Wizards past 76ers

first_imgGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title View comments Jimmy Butler added 23 points, and Ben Simmons had 15 points and 10 rebounds for Philadelphia. A night after hitting more than half of their 31 attempts from beyond the arc, the 76ers shot 8 of 27 from 3-point range, going 3 of 20 in the first three quarters.“The combination of not being able to make some shots, the turnovers creating a lot of their offensive looks was too hard to overcome,” 76ers coach Brett Brown said.Philadelphia cut what had been a 26-point deficit in the third quarter down to 12 in the fourth on the possession that followed Embiid’s charge.Beal answered by individually outscoring the visitors 14-5 to make it 116-95 with 4:22 left. He shot 6 of 11 from 3-point range and 13 of 21 overall from the field. Not to mention a gutsy defensive play.“He’s willing to do whatever it takes to win,” Ariza said. “We all see that in him.”ADVERTISEMENT NOT OTTO SHAPEPorter continued in his current role off the bench, but played 33 minutes in his fifth game since returning from his 10-game injury layoff. That was his most action since Dec. 5, though he insisted his return is still a work in progress.“There is nothing easy about getting back,” he said. “Just getting back in game shape, that is the biggest (thing), getting my second wind.”TAKE IT BACK!Philadelphia has lost six of its eight games in the second game of back-to-back sets. Against Washington, however, Simmons didn’t believe the timing of the game mattered.“I think that was just lack of competitiveness,” Simmons said. “I don’t think we competed.”WHOSE HOUSE?A sizable contingent of 76ers fans made their presence known. That included booing the Wizards’ player introductions and chanting “E-A-G-L-E-S! EAGLES!”TECHNICALLY SPEAKINGWashington picked up two technical fouls during a 32-second stretch early in the third. Thomas Bryant received his for hanging on the rim too long following a dunk, and Jeff Green got the second for arguing. Brown also picked up a tech for arguing a call in the second quarter.

Smart carmakers will go green

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan ClarksonBut just because Bush has been a longtime denier of the reality of global warming doesn’t mean his successor, regardless of party, will take a similarly troglodytic approach. This means even if California loses its lawsuit to overturn the EPA decision, it still won’t be long before you have to modify your cars and trucks to reduce the amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases they emit. To do this, your vehicles will have to become even more fuel efficient than required by the new federal energy regulations Bush has just approved, rules that won’t force you to reach their ultimate goal of an average of 35 miles per gallon until 2020. Since it’s obvious you’re going to have to change the specifications of your cars pretty soon anyway, why not start doing it now? Why keep resisting when you know you’ll have to do it anyway? The long-term truth is that you will only be able to stay in business in California and much of America (the 17 states now wanting to implement California’s standards account for well over half the automotive sales in this country) if you build cleaner and more efficient cars, trucks and sport-utility vehicles. The truly smart car companies out there will begin building the cars of the future as soon as they can, taking advantage of consumers’ predictable desire to reduce their need for high-priced gasoline. There’s a reason why Toyota has surpassed General Motors in the last year or so as the leading seller of cars in America: Years before it had to, that Japanese company dared to bet on the intelligence and environmental consciousness of U.S. citizens and built the hybrid Prius, which eventually became a hot seller. Toyota will soon offer hybrid versions of all its models. A new open letter to the world’s automakers: Well, you didn’t listen to the last missive from this column, published in many California newspapers last fall. As a result, you wasted several months and millions of dollars in legal fees arguing that California’s new greenhouse gas regulations are illegal because they might conflict with federal fuel economy rules. U.S. District Court Judge Anthony Ishii essentially laughed your arguments out of his Fresno courtroom last December, echoing an earlier decision by fellow federal Judge William K. Sessions III in Vermont. Both jurists held you had no case. But now you’re feeling good again, because the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, in keeping with President Bush’s denial that climate change is real, refused this month to grant California permission to enforce its new law, denying permission at the same time for 16 other states that are on record wanting to adopt the same measure. Which demonstrates that it can be done, that making fuel-efficient, cleaner cars is both possible and a wise economic move. Aping Toyota, the rest of you also now offer a bunch of hybrids, none as popular as the Prius, which leads the hybrid market because of its quality and because it got a leg up on the competition. Now there’s a chance for someone else to leapfrog Toyota by hastening the commercial appearance of hydrogen fuel-cell cars, one of which will be offered soon by Honda on a lease-only basis. Market these in quantity and with all the amenities motorists enjoy and consumers who like to stay on the cutting edge will buy them, with masses of others to follow. But instead of this, you’ve had your pet senators from car-producing states work to make the new federal rules less stringent than they could have been and you’ve argued fruitlessly that the California regulations – remember, they will be enforceable soon whether you or Bush’s EPA director like it or not – will force you to make two kinds of cars, one type for California and another for some other places. But doing just this never bothered you before. Plus, you can short-circuit this entire problem by selling California cars everywhere. The bottom line is that the company that acts on the California standards first will be the one that does best for years, maybe decades, afterward. Those that fight hardest against the new reality will become dinosaurs, perhaps even moving into the automotive boneyard now occupied by the likes of Kaiser, Studebaker, NSU and Daihatsu. So do yourself a favor and get with the future, which as usual takes its cues from California. Cease the obstructionism that has seen you resist every new smog-control tactic ever tried. Act logically for once and we’ll all get relief from your incessant lawsuits and start doing more of our share to keep this planet habitable.

`We are America’

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREOregon Ducks football players get stuck on Disney ride during Rose Bowl eventChris Gallizzi, 17, a junior at El Rancho High School in Pico Rivera, said he and about eight to 10 friends planned to join the Los Angeles rally. “I’m going because when we did the walkout, we got a lot of bad rap because some people walked out just to walk out. We want to show that we’ll sacrifice the week we have off \ to go do it,” he said. “I’m looking forward to seeing everyone unite.” Gallizzi said the contingent of Pico Rivera students wanted to avoid a repeat of the controversy that overshadowed their walkouts two weeks ago, when students hung an upside-down American flag below a Mexican flag. “We’re taking American flags because we want to show that we do love America. And, two, to show we’re in love with the values of America, not the values of another country.” Gallizzi said he would wear a white T-shirt and bandana printed with the colors of the American flag. “You got to show that we’re here to stay,” he said. “We started our lives here and we’re not going to go back.” Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said he had been advised to stay out of the immigration debate. “And I say, `How dare you?’ I know where I came from,” he told the crowd. The protests seek to help an estimated 11 million immigrants who are illegally in the United States by influencing decision-making in Washington, D.C. A bill passed by the House would crack down on illegal immigrants and strengthen the U.S. border with Mexico. A broader overhaul of immigration law stalled in the Senate last week and lawmakers went on a two-week break. “I think it was wrong for them to leave Washington and not have an agreement to have a guest worker program and to make sure we secure the borders,” Gov. Arnold Schwarznegger said Monday. In Santa Ana, which is about 76 percent Latino, several hundred people marched around the federal courthouse waving American flags. Police put the crowd at about 300 people, said Sgt. Theron Reed. Many chanted, “Si, se puede \,” and carried signs that read “Legalization not deportation” and “Somos America \.” Adriana Lopez, 27, attended the rally with her two young daughters. Lopez, who immigrated illegally from Mexico 11 years ago, said she was at first afraid to attend the rally but decided it was too important to miss. “It’s important to support because we are family, and we work hard to have a better life. My two girls were born here, and we don’t want to be separated,” she said. Demonstrator Jose Perez, 55, said he was the son of immigrants and became a U.S. citizen after serving in the Vietnam War in 1971. “As citizens of this country, our parents were immigrants. And this country is founded on the principle of opening its doors to everyone,” said Perez, a registered Republican. “We’re taking note of who is really listening to the voices of their constituents, and there will be a change. “Today we march, and tomorrow we vote.” Staff writer Araceli Esparza contributed to this report.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

LOS ANGELES – Waving American flags, thousands of people marched and prayed for immigrant rights throughout California on Monday, taking part in a nationwide movement urging that millions of people living illegally in the United States be put on a path to citizenship. Los Angeles Cardinal Roger Mahony led thousands in prayer outside a downtown church Monday. Police estimated the crowd at 7,000. “We are America, a nation of immigrants seeking a better life,” said Mahony, the leader of the nation’s largest Roman Catholic archdiocese.

Every Premier League club’s most exciting ever transfer in the top flight

first_img The Robinho transfer was a sign of things to come at Man City 7 Southampton: Mario Lemina from Juventus in 2017The strong and powerful midfielder left Juventus for Southampton in 2017, with Saints handing over £17m. Arsenal had been linked with him, but he chose the south coast where he believed he would play more first team football. “Investing in a player of Mario’s quality and buying from a club like Juventus is a significant statement of intent from the club and this is a purchase that has set another club-record fee,” the club’s vice chairman of football Les Reed said at the time. Frustratingly, the player suffered an ankle injury in October which halted his progress.Manchester City: Robinho from Real Madrid in 2008On the final day of the summer transfer window in 2008, City were bought by Sheikh Mansour’s mega wealthy Abu Dhabi United group and subsequently shocked the Premier League by signing Robinho, who came with a big reputation. “I just laughed, really, because it was all out for Berbatov and then they seemed to be bidding for everybody,” City player Richard Dunne said, in reference to the club’s deadline bid for the Bulgarian striker, before attention was shifted to Robinho. It was clearly a sign of things to come. Van der Sar joined Fulham from Juventus in 2001 Ozil was a star of the 2010 World Cup and then was a hugely popular Real Madrid player 7 Watford: Jose Jurado from Spartak Moscow in 2015A product of Real Madrid’s youth setup, the 29-year-old made a handful of appearances for Los Blancos before moving to near neighbours Atletico Madrid in 2006. He played 115 times there and was part of the 2010 Europa League winning squad under Quique Sanchez Flores, who then brought him to Watford in 2015 and a year later at Espanyol.Everton: Romelu Lukaku signed from Chelsea in 2014“This signing is not just important for this season. It is a significant day in the history of this football club,” Roberto Martinez crowed when Everton signed 21-year-old Lukaku in 2014. The striker had scored 16 goals on loan during the 2013/14 campaign and cost £28m. He was popular with the fans and when he decided to join permanently it was a good day. There were similar scenes when Wayne Rooney returned to the club in 2017.Manchester United: Paul Pogba signs from Juventus in 2016There have been plenty of exciting signings at United since 1992, including Eric Cantona, Juan Veron and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Pogba, though, seemed to be on another level, possibly by the fact it seemed a drawn out saga. The midfielder left Old Trafford for Juventus in 2012 and spent four seasons becoming one of the world’s best midfielders, so when he returned in a club record deal – said to be £90m – a lot of fans were very pleased, especially as it seemed they’d trumped other European football heavyweights. Alexis Sanchez’s arrival created an equal amount of hysteria.Fulham sign Edwin van der Sar in 2001When Juventus paid Parma £32m for Gianluigi Buffon, Van der Sar’s time at the club was over. However, he joined an ambitious Fulham side, who were playing in the Premiership for the first time and Mohammed Al Al Fayed, the owner, meant business. “The dream which I am trying to make come true is that Fulham are one of the leading Premiership clubs as quickly as possible,” he said. “I have a determination to turn Fulham into a great club that is known worldwide and I have a great faith in [manager] Jean Tigana and his proven talent as a manager and coach.” These were exciting times. 7 7 Bournemouth: Jordon Ibe from Liverpool in 2016Although it hasn’t quite worked out the way he and Bournemouth fans had hoped, at the time the deal appeared to be a strong statement of intent from the club. Ibe was 20 and the Cherries paid a club record £15m for him. He appeared to be Raheem Sterling’s successor when the England man left Liverpool for Man City a year earlier, so perhaps unfairly, big things were expected.Leicester: Islam Slimani from Sporting Lisbon in 2016Leicester fans had every right to feel happy when the club made Slimani their record buy. The Algeria international joined for £30m having scored 31 times in 44 games the previous season. However, he hasn’t been able to nail down a regular spot in the first team.Brighton: Pascal Gross from Ingolstadt in 2017Manager Chris Hughton was delighted with the signing of Gross – and rightly so. The midfielder scored four times for German side Ingolstadt as they were relegated, but had created more chances than any other player in the Bundesliga over the course of the 2016/17 campaign. He’s been a great addition, too, as Fantasy Premier League managers will tell you.Tottenham: Edgar Davids from Inter in 2005Jurgen Klinsmann was definitely exciting considering the mess Spurs found themselves in during the 1990s. He was a World Cup winner and he chose Tottenham. As was Rafael van der Vaart’s decision to join in 2010. In 2005, though, Spurs were still distinctly mediocre and the arrival of a player of Davids’ calibre was cause for major celebration among the White Hart Lane faithful. No disrespect, but for a team consisting of Andy Reid, Johnnie Jackson and Anthony Gardner, the arrival of Davids, 32 at the time, was a major boost given his Champions League and title-winning experience with Ajax and Juventus. 7 Alan Shearer was unveiled in front of 15,000 Newcastle fans Rui Patricio won Euro 2016 with Portugal 7 People got a shock when these two showed up and Hammers fans got a thrill 7 Chelsea: Andriy Shevchenko from Milan in 2006“I am going from one big club to another and joining a team of champions,” Shevchenko said upon signing for Chelsea in 2006. The striker was a goal machine at Milan and one of Europe’s deadliest strikers with a Ballon d’Or in 2004 to show for it. He wasn’t great and hindsight is a wonderful thing, but at the time, Chelsea, back-to-back Premier League champions were understandably excited at the prospect of signing one of the world’s best.Liverpool: Fernando Torres from Atletico Madrid in 2007Robbie Fowler returning in 2006 was a sentimental one, with fans accepting he probably wasn’t going to be as prolific as he once was, but most knew or at least hoped Torres would score goals for the club. He arrived in a £20m deal with a growing reputation and the young superstar didn’t disappoint. He ended his time on Merseyside in 2011 with 81 goals in 142 games.Newcastle: Alan Shearer from Blackburn in 1996Newcastle paid Blackburn £15m to bring Shearer ‘home’ in 1996 and supporters were certainly delighted to see the goal scoring Geordie sign. There were 15,000 people at St James’ Park to see his unveiling. “As everyone knows I’ve always wanted to play for the club and the way things are going with the Bosman ruling, if I’d have gone elsewhere I’d have been playing for Newcastle with my best years behind me,” Shearer said. His best years were quite clearly still in front of him as he ended his career as the club’s greatest scorer with 206 goals and he is still the Premier League’s top scoring player with 260 goals. It’s that time of year when football fans start dreaming about the season ahead.Will the new players have the desired impact? Of course they will (hopefully).New faces definitely bring with them a massive buzz and here, talkSPORT.com has looked at every current Premier League‘s most exciting signing ever as a top flight side.Arsenal: Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid in 2013Alexis Sanchez was a big move, as was Bergkamp’s, but Ozil just seemed huge. Arsenal’s failure to sign proven world class talent had been a familiar lament since their last title win in 2004, so when they finally spent big it was an exciting moment for Gunners fans. Ozil is a huge name in world football and when Arsenal persuaded Real Madrid to sell him in 2013, it was said his team-mates at the Bernabeu, including Cristiano Ronaldo, were not happy with the decision. At £42.5million, no one could accuse Arsenal of scrimping on this deal. No Spurs fan could believe it when they landed Edgar Davids Crystal Palace: Yohan Cabaye from Paris Saint-Germain in 2015Crystal Palace’s signing of Cabaye was one of the surprises of the summer. The midfielder international had spent a season and a half with Paris Saint-Germain after joining them for £19million from Newcastle United, but couldn’t make a starting role his own, though, and decided on south London despite interest from other clubs. No wonder the Selhurst Park faithful were excited.Cardiff sign Gary Medel from Sevilla in 2013Cardiff spent a record £11m on the midfielder known as ‘pit bull’ in their first season in the Premier League. His fighting spirit and passing impressed at first, but his stay in South Wales didn’t last long as he left after the club’s relegation in 2014. He played under both Malky Mackay and Ole Gunnar Solskajer in that time and we are just gutted Medel wasn’t around to play under Neil Warnock. What a combination that would have been – the Chilean seemingly has all the nutter credentials required.West Ham: Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano from Corinthians in 2006Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester United and Bayern Munich were some of the clubs interested in the Argentine pair, who were genuine world class footballers at the time. Yet they moved to West Ham, a team that reached the previous season’s FA Cup final and finished ninth in the Premier League. What a time to be alive if you were a Hammers fan. Burnley: Steven Defour from Anderlecht in 2016Before injury hampered his career the Belgium international had been linked with a string of high profile clubs, including Man United. Sir Alex Ferguson even wrote the midfielder, then Standard Liège captain, a letter wishing him a speedy recovery from a broken leg in 2009. Burnley paid Anderlecht £7.5m for him, with manager Sean Dyche hammering home what sort of player they had bought. “He’s a good player with a depth of experience at international level and in the Champions League,” he said.Huddersfield: Aaron Mooy from Man City in 2017A year prior to his arrival, the 26-year-old spent the previous season on loan at the club and helped them win promotion to the Premier League in 2017. He had won the club’s Player of the Year award and supporters were happy when Huddersfield made the deal permanent – paying £8m – ahead of their Premier League debut.Wolves sign Rui Patricio from Sporting in 2018Ruben Neves was probably one of the more exciting signings, but seeing as he was snapped up in the Championship, talkSPORT.com is looking at Patricio, Portugal’s no.1. The goalkeeper has played more than 70 times for his country and was a member of the team that won Euro 2016, so it’s a big statement of intent to have this man between the sticks. Wolves fans will have higher hopes than they might normally about staying in the Premier League considering their stylish title win last season and ahead of the new, the club also bought Willy Boly (Porto, £10m) and Raul Jimenez (Benfica, loan).last_img read more

Mourinho ‘rules out return’

first_imgJose Mourinho has ruled out a return to Chelsea, the Daily Mirror reports.The story is based on comments by the daughter of the owner of a London restaurant Mourinho and his family visited this week.She said: “A lot of the staff are Chelsea fans, including me, and they were asking him if he was coming back to the club.“Unfortunately he said he wasn’t. We’re all disappointed as he was a great manager for us. I wish he was coming back.”The Sun say Mourinho is keeping his options open despite looking at houses in London – and could even end up at Manchester City.A source close to the Real Madrid manager is quoted as saying: “Jose says he will wait to see what happens in England in the next few months.“Will Harry Redknapp leave Tottenham for the England job? Will Roberto Mancini go if Manchester City don’t win the title? Will Andre Villas-Boas survive at Chelsea? They are three big jobs that would all appeal to Jose.”Meanwhile, the Mirror say Chelsea and Arsenal are watching Real Sociedad defender Inigo Martinez and that Atletico Madrid want Blues keeper Thibaut Courtois to stay on loan with them for another season.And The Independent suggest QPR manager Mark Hughes has said that his team are too good to go down.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
