Raptors think outside the box to stop Warriors in NBA Finals

first_imgFred Vanvleet works with Trainer Alex McKechnie of the Toronto Raptors during practice and media availability as part of the 2019 NBA Finals on June 4, 2019 at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California.Oakland, United States | AFP | Toronto Raptors coach Nick Nurse dug out a defensive scheme his own players hadn’t seen in the NBA before to shut down the league’s top-scoring defending champion Golden State Warriors.So when players say they never know what Toronto might do next in the NBA Finals, they mean it.Nurse used a Box and One defense late in game two Sunday, leaving Fred VanVleet to guard Golden State star guard Stephen Curry. The Warriors’ NBA-best attack fell silent, even though the Raptors lost and the best-of-seven series level at 1-1.“Everybody is making fun of me about it, right?” Nurse said Tuesday. “I was just trying to come up with something to stop them.”Golden State’s DeMarcus Cousins said he hadn’t seen the ploy since middle school. Toronto’s Kyle Lowry said he had never seen it in the NBA. And Curry called it “janky” without even being sure what it meant, saying he hadn’t seen it since college days.“That’s a little Southern North Carolina slang I just pulled out of my back pocket,” Curry said. “It sounds right. I don’t really know what the true definition is.“It was obviously innovative and unexpected in terms of defense you haven’t seen in a while. But we’ll be prepared for what they throw at us going forward in this series.Just got to be able to adapt.“That’s pretty much what the finals is about at this stage, where you have to expect to see literally anything and a lot of desperation in certain moments.”The strategy, a zone defense with fleet VanVleet tight on Curry, was a spur of the moment move.“We were having trouble getting our defense set up. We were having trouble at the basket. We were having trouble with the rhythm of the game,” Nurse said.“Usually you do it when the game is funky and there’s a bad rhythm and maybe you can change it just by slowing them down, stopping some of their cutting or whatever.”It did, even if Nurse literally had to draw his own players a picture of what to do. “Sometimes when your coach draws something up, you just kind of go with it,” Raptors guard Kyle Lowry said. “I don’t know if it worked or not. But it was pretty innovative. The first time a team has probably ever played box-and-one in the NBA.“Never practised that ever. I don’t think I’ve ever run a box-and-one in my life. Literally he drew on the board in spots and said, ‘Stand there.’“You can laugh at it. You could clown it. Nothing Nick does surprises me now. That one kind of caught me off guard, but it was innovative.”As Nurse recalled it, “Kyle was the one that said, ‘Yeah, man, that will work, let’s go.’ That lets you share the responsibility a little bit. We leave the huddle and we’re all good with it. So that helps.”– Might see it again –Raptors star Kawhi Leonard said it took some extra talk to sort it out.“He’s experimental and a lot of times what he draws up on the board works,” Leonard said of Nurse. “We just kind of talked it out and still got into our locations.”Warriors coach Steve Kerr said the Box and One served its purpose.“It was very effective,” Kerr said. “It just changes the rhythm. We had open looks that we didn’t knock down. But the rhythm changed and the look changed. They did a good job with that.“It’s typically not something you can rely on for big, long stretches. It’s probably something you see more often in high school, even college, but I don’t remember ever seeing it in the NBA.”But Raptors center Marc Gasol warned Curry not to joke too much about the janky defense, saying, “If he’s that good of a player, I’m sure he might see it another time.”Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Richardson romps to Hong Kong victory

first_img22 Oct 2012 Richardson romps to Hong Kong victory Edward Richardson (Hemsted Forest, Kent), a former England international, secured a place in next month’s UBS Hong Kong Open on the European Tour when he won the Hong Kong Open Amateur Championship at Clearwater Bay Golf & Country Club. The 44 year old from Kent, carded a fine 65 in the third round and closed with 68 to ease to comprehensive 14-stroke victory over Chinese Taipei’s Liu Yu Jui, with Hong Kong’s Shinichi Mizuno a shot further back in third place. “It all came together over the past couple of days after I started the tournament pretty badly,” said Richardson, who finished second in the championship in 2007. “The aim today was not to make any mistakes and give anyone else a chance, which I was able to do. It’s great to win on such a great golf course.” Richardson was forced to stop playing for two and a half years after being diagnosed with myelofibrosis, a rare blood disorder, in 2008. But having successfully overcome the disease, the former West of England stroke play champion and Kent county champion, is focused on making the most of his undoubted talent. “I got very lucky and now I’m clean I’m able to enjoy my golf again,” he said. “The allure of playing in the Hong Kong Amateur is the chance of getting into a European Tour event, which is something I’ve never done before. I’m really looking forward to the experience.” Richardson was a full England international in 2005 and 2006, reached the British Mid Amateur quarter finals in the following year and was a member of the England team in the European Nations Championship in 2008 when he also reached the last eight of the Spanish Amateur Championship. The Hong Kong victory tops a highly successful 2012 for the Kent man. This season, he has enjoyed a string of top ten finishes including runner-up in the Midland Open Championship and third place in the Lagonda and Waterford Trophies, which saw him finish third on the Titleist/FootJoy England Golf Men’s Order of Merit. He has also be included in the England ‘A’ training squad for the winter and 2013. In equal fourth place was Alastair Hall from Suffolk after a closing 74 for 298. Leading final scores: 281 – E Richardson (Eng) 73 75 65 68 295 – Liu Yu Jui (Chinese Taipei) 73 73 72 77 296 – S Mizuno (HK) 73 74 73 76 298 – A Hall (Eng) 68 76 80 74, V Chandra (Fiji) 71 75 74 78last_img read more

New County Emergency Homeless Shelter Advances

first_imgBy Laura D.C. Kolnoski | OCEANPORT – The new Monmouth County adult emergency homeless shelter to be built on borough property on the former Fort Monmouth should be ready for occupancy by the end of next summer, according to county administrator Teri O’Connor.The single-story facility will consist of two new, prefabricated modular structures connected by a “bridge” portion at the corner of Courier Avenue and Murphy Drive.The 3.1-acre site, conveyed to the county by the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority (FMERA) in March, previously contained one hut-style structure that is being demolished. Engineering work was recently performed to relocate utilities and improve ingress and egress, and site work has begun, O’Connor said on Nov. 30. Spiezle Architectural Group of Hamilton prepared the plans. The county is expected to advertise for bids this week. County officials anticipate awarding the construction contract in February.“The facility will have one side for men and the other for women, with a common area in between with a kitchen, laundry, a dining area and a common room,” O’Connor said, adding that only adults and no children will be allowed to reside there on a temporary basis. The shelter will also have space for security, counseling, clothing, a computer nook and staff. The cost is projected at $1.7 million. FMERA officials have stated at past public meetings members “fully support the project.”The previous county emergency homeless shelter was destroyed in Super Storm Sandy. Since then, adults needing temporary shelter have been placed at the John L. Montgomery Care Center in Freehold, a former county facility that was sold to a private concern about a year ago. The county houses a fluctuating number of about 18 up to 30 homeless adults who are required to work or look for work and permanent housing during daylight hours. Occupants are allowed to remain at the emergency shelter for a maximum of 30 days.“There are strict criteria participants must follow,” said Monmouth County Freeholder Director Lillian Burry, the county’s FMERA representative. “It’s an interim place to be sheltered until they can transition into new circumstances. This is something we’ve done for years for those who are in a temporary state of homelessness.” By statute and agreement with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the county’s homeless shelter must be located in Oceanport. To identify a suitable permanent site on the former fort, Burry, O’Connor, and county Public Works and Engineering officials worked with FMERA staff. The site was accepted by Oceanport officials, Burry said.The new site is located across Stephenson Avenue from the former county homeless shelter and already has a paved parking area. Last month, Family Promise of Monmouth County, an affiliate of National Family Promise, opened a 2,832-square-foot, one-story facility to provide support services for homeless persons on 1.7 acres along Malterer Avenue, also in Oceanport. Located across from the FMERA offices along Route 537 (Avenue of Memories), that facility provides case management, links to outside service providers and programs including education by working with community agencies, faith-based services and religious entities to provide shelter, food, transportation and supportive services for homeless families. Also part of the redevelopment agreement with HUD, that site was transferred to Family Promise for $1.This article was first published in the Dec. 7-14, 2017 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

Even a little fogginess can’t stop Steve Archdekin from his love of triathlons

first_img“There was one short hill in particular where you had to really dig in . . .. I forgot how much pressure it puts on my shoulders and wrists to drive into my bike,” Archdekin explained.“By the time I got to the top of the hill and back up to speed each time (two-lap bike course) my arms were numb and I was conscious of the fact that they could give out and I could bail.”“I never did though,” Archdekin said.Two triathlons in two weeks miles apart is enough for now, said Archdekin.He has a few weeks to rehab before jumping into Kootenay Lake at the Cyswog’n’ Fun August 5 in Nelson.“Even though I love road tripping, driving hurts my body so badly, so it’ll be nice to be at home for one,” he said.“The last time I raced here was in 2009 which was three days from getting off of crutches after that goat whipped my (butt).”Archdekin will be just one of many local racers competing in the 30th annual Nelson Cyswog’n’ Fun Triathlon.The race, with a course distance of 1.5-kilometer Olympic swim, 39 km bike and 10 km run, goes Sunday August 5 at 8 a.m. from Lakeside Park in Nelson.The short distance, the sprint race, is 500-meter swim, 22 km cycle and five km run.Registration deadline is Friday, August 3.Participants can pre-register online athttps://eventsonline.ca/events/cyswog/ Horrible headaches, fogginess, more sleeplessness, seeing spots, quick second long blackout-y-type things, squinting eyes because of how much pain generated through my skull, parts of my head are also numb . . . and this is happening during the race.Despite experiencing all these aches and pains, Nelson’s Steve Archdekin still managed to finish the Peachland Triathlon coming across the finish line in a time of two hours, 13 minutes and change.“It’s hard to explain, but is nothing new and has been going on from a few days before race and is still going on,” Archdekin said about the 750-meter swim, 20 kilometer bike and five km run Peachland race Sunday in the Okanagan.“Having my head off the vertical plane makes everything even worse,” Archdekin adds.“The bike is horrible for that. It’s bad enough on my neck on the best of days, but when my neck is doing this it is an absolute killer to be on my bike.”Despite suffering from a rare form of arthritis called, Reiter’s Syndrome — a form of arthritis that produces pain, swelling, redness, and heat in the joints — Archdekin continues to seek out his first love, competing in triathlons.He started the season out in Christina Lake before heading to Calgary earlier this month where he finished in a time of two hours, 15 minutes — which just happened to be 25 minutes better than Christina.Back to Peachland, Archdekin persevered during the swim, coming out of the water second to last.During the cycle he reeled in a bunch of competitors who got the upper hand during the run.last_img read more

SAN GABRIEL STAKES QUOTES

first_imgJOCKEY QUOTES DRAYDEN VAN DYKE, PATRIOTICANDPROUD, SECOND: “It got a little congested turning for home so I had to wait for a hole to open up. One never did, so I had to go outside of the winner eventually. I think if I could have let him get a run under him a bit sooner it would have been closer. I think it would have been a horse-race for sure but it didn’t happen.” TRAINER QUOTES NOTES: The winning owners are Jerry Crawford of Des Moines, Iowa, who race as Donegal Racing, and Gary Hartunian of Los Angeles, who races as Rockingham Ranch.center_img PETER MILLER, FINNEGANS WAKE, WINNER: “I was concerned this might be a little short; he just won at a mile and a half, but when I looked at his form, he had won at a mile and an eighth before. He’s just such a neat horse. He’s a stud but he’s just the coolest guy to be around.“He eats well and he’s been training really well, so I felt like he would run his race. Whether he could get up going a mile and an eighth was the big question, but Victor (Espinoza) gave him a super ride.“We’ll look at all our options (for future races) including maybe even Dubai. The horse trains well on dirt and he ran well in the Clark, so perhaps even the Santa Anita Handicap (March 7). I don’t know. I’ve got to get with the owners, enjoy this for now, and maybe next week set up a game plan.” VICTOR ESPINOZA, FINNEGANS WAKE, WINNER: “I thought today was going to be too short for him, but obviously it wasn’t. He’s getting good. I thought they would go slower up front but there was still good pace. I wanted to be closer to the front but not too close.“He was a little confused because of where we broke from so I think he sat back further than usual because of that. He went nice and comfortably which worked out well but I had to encourage him a bit to get into the race. I had to ask him early because he’s big and he doesn’t have a ton of speed. He took a little while, but it worked out well.”last_img read more

Italy Going Soft on Darwinism

first_imgThe controversy over evolution is not limited to American shores.  An editorial in the September issue of American Naturalist1 expresses concern that evolutionary biology is getting a low-key treatment in Italian universities:The Darwinian theory of evolution by natural selection is the unifying principle of the biological sciences.  Unfortunately in the Italian academic system, evolutionary biology is not acknowledged as an independent research area, so no faculty positions in “evolutionary biology” can be established, and most students hear only a brief summary of evolutionary theory in the final hours of their introductory zoology, paleontology, or genetics courses.  To make matters worse, during the past two years, several creationist organizations have been publicly attacking the teaching of evolutionary theory.   (Emphasis added in all quotes.)It’s time to take action, says the Italian Society for Evolutionary Biology.  Last year, they established the Coordinamento Italiano dei Biologi Evoluzionisti – CoEvol for short – to both strengthen collaborations between Italian evolutionists and to “improve the teaching of evolution in Italy and to increase the involvement of undergraduate and graduate students in evolutionary studies.”  Activities include a new cyber-journal club allow evolutionists to discuss recent papers, annual meetings, and the announcement of the new Italian Society for Evolutionary Biology.  More significantly, CoEvol hopes to become a “lobby group that will foster collaboration among Italian evolutionary biologists in Italy and abroad and represent our interest in making evolutionary biology a priority in the Italian educational system.”  They have established a website: www.coevol.org.1Announcements, “Letter from the Italian Society for Evolutionary Biology,” The American Naturalist, Vol. 166, Sept. 2005, pp. i-ii.Today, class, we will learn about the evolution of the pizza.  The pizza was not created by intelligent design, as those rascally creationists allege.  Instead, it “emerged” out of the primordial dough.  Over millions of years, it became just one species of Italian food on the evolutionary Cuisine of Life, with spaghetti, linguini, tortellini and macaroni branching off early and forming the Pasta Kingdom, incorporating parmesan by lateral cheese transfer.  Some theorists believe that pepperoni was once a free-living organism that became incorporated into pizza as an endosymbiont during the Prosciutto epoch of the Paleocarne Era.  The pizza class experienced a rapid diversification into many forms on the North American continent, as the Italian fast-food restaurant niche opened after the last Ice Cream Age.  This stimulated an explosive period of adaptive radiation, producing the Round Table family, the Shakeys family, and the Chuck E. Cheese family, among others.  The microwave pizza, with no phylogenetic connection to the old-world pizzas of the Italian peninsula, provides a striking example of convergent evolution….    That makes about as much sense as the usual evolutionary storytelling in biology.  Will Italian students give it much more than a yawn?  Maybe Go-Evil should obtain a concertina marching band and hold parades, where Emperor Charlie as Grand Marshall can strut down the Appian Way in his new clothes – on second thought, better pack a designer loincloth.    Have you ever noticed that every announcement by Big Science starts with the same line? – “the Darwinian theory of evolution by natural selection is the unifying principle of the biological sciences.”  It’s almost enough to feed conspiracy theories.  In actuality, evolution is about as unifying as iron mixed with clay, the iron representing hard science based on observation, and the clay representing evolutionary speculation.  No matter how much it tries to cling to the iron, the clay will not be able to support the statue without a change of ore.(Visited 12 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Tomorrow’s Hope: Qaanitaah Dramat

first_imgYouth Presenter: Radio 786Why is Qaanitaah Tomorrow’s Hope?Qaanitaah Dramat may be a voice among many on the airwaves, but she is using her voice to help change the attitudes of many young people in her community.At age 16, being an incredibly shy person, she stepped out of her comfort zone by volunteering to be a presenter at a local community radio station. Qaanitaah’s voice has helped many young people steer clear of negative influences and has raised awareness on pertinent issues and difficulties that teenagers face.One of the things she did was to interview a reformed criminal and reformed drug addict who relayed his past exploits, his time in prison and the impact of his crimes and lessons learned in an in-depth on-air interview. Her intention in getting his story out was to try to ensure other young people to not make the same mistakes as he did.The interview earned her the BBC Young Broadcaster of the Year Award.Qaanitaah, with the help of a friend, also runs an informal soup kitchen for disadvantaged individuals in her community. She tries by all means to identify with the adversity faced by her peers and community. She sees herself as being an ambassador first for her religion, then for South Africa, and hopefully, one day, for the whole world.In her own words …“I think that the youth in South Africa lack a lot of confidence and belief in themselves. Growing up as a teenager is not easy because there are so many negative influences that can suck you in so easily. I want to help people to believe in themselves, to just motivate and encourage them to drive themselves to success.”Fast FactsQaanitaah is currently studying Chinese medicine at the University of the Western Cape.Radio 786 is a Cape-based Muslim Community Radio station.How can you help?Volunteer for community projects, and use the platforms available – such as soup kitchens and community radio stations – to help uplift others.Story published on SAinfo on 22 July 2008.Source: Brand South Africalast_img read more

Google Making Fashion Week Documentary Using “Glasses”

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Some of the most beautiful women on the planet have geeked out hard this week, donning Google Glasses on the catwalk for New York’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.Designer Diane von Furstenberg’s line teamed up with Google to unveil a futuristic collaboration, merging fashion and technology. Models have been paired with colored Glasses that match their outfits. Google will edit the footage recorded by each of the Glasses to create a documentary shot from each of the models’ perspectives. Look for it on the Google Glass Google Plus channel this week.“Beauty, style and comfort are as important to Glass as the latest technology,” Sergey Brin said. The Google co-founder joined von Furstenberg in the front row of the show, each sporting a pair. Wearable fashion technology (or is it tech fashion?) is an eye-grabber, and with Google planning to sell the Glasses in retail locations next year, this was a savvy PR move. The first Glass release, the “Explorer Edition,” is reportedly priced at $1,500, but that’s not stopping the buzz.If nothing else, it’s a big personal move for Brin, whose label faves begin and end with Crocs.  Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…center_img Tags:#Google#web Related Posts adam popesculast_img read more
