He called game: Dwyane Wade banks in straightaway 3 to lift Heat past Warriors

first_imgMiami Heat guard Dwyane Wade (3) celebrates after the Heat defeated the Golden State Warriors 126-125 in an NBA basketball game Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2019, in Miami. (AP Photo/Brynn Anderson)MIAMI — Dwyane Wade jumped onto a courtside table and thumped himself on the chest three times. He took a victory lap, waving a towel. He got mobbed by teammates.He’s been part of games that meant more.ADVERTISEMENT Rockets buckle down on Kemba Walker to frustrate feisty Hornets Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Wade caught the rebound with about a second left.Off the glass, for the win.From there, bedlam.The fans erupted in cheers. Some of the Warriors watched the replay on the overhead screens with a look of disbelief, and after a moment Warriors star Stephen Curry came over to offer congratulations after presumably their last head-to-head meeting before Wade retires after this season.“I told Steph, ‘I needed this one on my way out. Y’all get enough,’” Wade said. “But it was cool. I think the one thing cool for me was I’ve got younger teammates that heard about some of the things you do but don’t always get an opportunity to see it.”Wade scored 25 points to help Miami snap a six-game home losing streak.“Sometimes you just need to be lucky,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said after giving Wade a long bear-hug in a jubilant postgame locker room. “We’ve had so many of these breaks go against us.”Goran Dragic led the Heat with 27 points. Josh Richardson added 21, and Miami made 18 3-pointers.Klay Thompson scored 36 points for the Warriors. Durant added 29 and Curry scored 24 for the Warriors, whose lead over Denver atop the Western Conference dropped to a half-game.Golden State rallied from 19 down to win 120-118 at home on Feb. 10, and dug its way out of an even bigger hole this time — but couldn’t finish it off. Wade’s 3-pointer with 15 seconds left got Miami to 124-123, and he came up with one more when the Heat needed it most.

The Heat had no timeouts, no way to set up a play, and there was no way anyone could have drawn up what happened.Wade brought the ball up, drove into the lane, stutter-stepped and lost the ball for a brief moment. He gathered it and shoveled it to Dion Waiters, who was double-teamed and couldn’t get off a shot. Waiters tossed it back to Wade, who shot-faked Durant in the air and then had his first try blocked by Jordan Bell.ADVERTISEMENT “Dwyane just hit an unbelievable shot,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “It was going in as soon as it left his hand.”Dragic had 25 points by halftime, getting 20 of those in the second quarter alone — setting Heat single-quarter and any-half records for a reserve. He had 11 points in a span of 69 seconds in the second quarter, and a pair of free throws with 2:59 left in the half put Miami up 69-45.Against most teams, even in the first half, a 24-point lead might have been enough.The Warriors, of course, are not most teams.Back-to-back 3-pointers by Durant and Thompson helped Golden State get the lead down to 74-59 by halftime. The Warriors cut the lead to seven on two separate occasions in the third quarter, and kept whittling away in the fourth — getting within six when Draymond Green rattled in a 3-pointer from the right corner with 8:20 left, then 106-103 when Curry connected from deep on the next possession.The Warriors led for all of 1:14 in the second half. Wade didn’t let them leave with the lead.“There is something special about him making a play like that, this his last year in this building,” Curry said. “I’d much rather see him jumping on the scorer’s table when we’re not on the court. Deep down, it was cool to see even though we lost.”TIP-INSWarriors: DeMarcus Cousins (load management and Achilles recovery) got the night off, and the Warriors said he will play in Orlando on Thursday. … Wednesday was the sixth anniversary of Curry’s career-high 54-point game at Madison Square Garden, and the third anniversary of his game-winner from about 40 feet to win at Oklahoma City.Heat: Wade, who has exchanged jerseys with an opponent after almost every game this season, kept this one as a keepsake. … Miami was without Hassan Whiteside (hip strain) and James Johnson (shoulder sprain). Justise Winslow (knee) and Derrick Jones Jr. (flu) … The 74 first-half points tied the second-most in Heat history. Miami scored 75 against the Los Angeles Clippers on Nov. 19, 1997, and 74 against Dallas on Nov. 11, 1999. … Udonis Haslem checked in during the third quarter, playing at home for the second time this season.

Housewife “punting” at mining camp dies after pit collapses

first_imgA 60-year-old housewife, who was trying to earn an income by “punting” in a gold mining pit is now dead after the walls caved in.Dead is Retta Samuels of One Mile, Arakaka, North West District, Region One (Barima-Waini).A mining pit in Guyana’s interiorReports are that on Friday between 15:30h and 16:00h, the woman along with several others were “punting” (trying to find gold from the tail end of a dredge) in the Locus Backdam in Arakaka.Reports are at about 14:00h, Samuels was working in a pit owned by a 45-year-old gold miner. During the process of washing down (final process) the pit walls collapsed.As a result, Samuels became trapped below the mud and water for a lengthy period, and by the time persons were able to dig through to rescue the woman, she was motionless.She was immediately rushed to the Arakaka Health Centre but was pronounced dead on arrival.According to the police, Samuels’ body is at the Arakaka Health Centre Mortuary and arrangements are underway for it to be transported to the Port Kaituma Hospital Mortuary for a post-mortem examination (PME).Just a few months ago, a teenage miner died after the mining pit in which he was working caved in, covering him with rubble.He was identified as 18-year-old Emanuel Narine of La Grange, West Bank Demerara (WBD).Reports were that Narine had been working along with others in a mining pit at Oko Baramally, Sand Hill Backdam, Region 10, when the pit caved in, completely covering him.At that time, this newspaper was told that the impact of the rubble falling on the teen broke his neck and caused his demise.The teen’s brother, Orwin Narine, took three hours before he was able to reach the police to report the incident. Due to the location and the amount of slush, Narine’s body was left in the backdam for almost two days before it was retrieved.

Aguero inches Man City closer to title

first_img0Shares0000Narrow lead: Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero (right) celebrates his winner at Burnley © AFP / Oli SCARFFBURNLEY, United Kingdom, Apr 28 – Sergio Aguero’s 20th Premier League goal of the season left Manchester City just two wins from the title after a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday.Aguero, who has now scored nine times in his past eight appearances against Burnley, struck in the 63rd minute, with a shot that only just crossed the line despite the best efforts of defender Matt Lowton to keep it out, although goal-line technology was needed to award the goal. The win takes City on to 92 points, one ahead of Liverpool, with two games to play.Victories at home to Leicester a week on Monday, and away at Brighton the following Sunday will see Pep Guardiola’s side retain their English title.For the first time in months, City’s elimination from the Champions League means they will crucially have a free midweek to prepare for those key matches.By contrast, Liverpool must travel to Newcastle next weekend, either side of the two legs of their Champions League semi-final against Barcelona, before hosting Wolves on May 12.City have now won 12 consecutive Premier League games but they had to work to maintain their composure against the Clarets.– Heaton frustrates City –Guardiola’s side enjoyed the bulk of possession, but found creating clear chances difficult. When they did, Burnley goalkeeper Tom Heaton was in excellent form.Heaton, a former Manchester United reserve, made two excellent saves in the opening minutes of the second half. He was alert at his near post to beat away Aguero’s shot, after Raheem Sterling’s neat flick had created the opening, before beating out Bernardo Silva’s snap shot at the end of a goalmouth scramble.Sean Dyche’s side knew before kick-off they were mathematically certain of Premier League survival, yet played as if they too were fighting for the title.Burnley even caused City the occasional first-half problem.Jack Cork chested down a ball on the edge of the penalty area and then hit a shot that struck visiting captain Vincent Kompany full in the face.As the home fans appealed for handball and screamed for a penalty, referee Paul Tierney put his whistle to his lips as if considering awarding one. Television replays, though, showed he was right not to.The Clarets’ best opening fell to Chris Wood, who was left to rue a poor first touch that denied him his big moment.Played through by Jeff Hendrick, the New Zealand forward allowed the ball to squirt away, and Ederson was bravely out at his feet to smother.At times, City’s frustration threatened to boil over.In the closing moments of the first half, Aguero over-hit a pass down the left for Leroy Sane, resulting in the ball rolling out of play, and the German responded by turning to his team-mate and flinging his arms out in despair.Eventually, though, City’s patience was rewarded. Bernardo Silva’s low ball into the middle found Aguero, who, with his back to goal and minimal space to work with, managed to fashion a shot that beat Heaton.Lowton, on the line, looked to have blocked the shot with his chest, but the ball looped up and just crossed the line before he could recover to clear it.If City were hoping that goal would provide the platform for a comfortable final half-hour, though, they were to be disappointed as Burnley continued to give everything.Few players were more committed than Burnley’s Ben Mee, the boyhood City fan who used to captain their youth team.He produced an extraordinary goal-line clearance to deny the visitors a second goal, stretching to hook the ball clear after substitute Gabriel Jesus collected Kyle Walker’s crossfield pass, and had gone round Heaton to shoot towards what he thought was an empty net.After that, City were content to run down the clock as they kept their cool to leave their northwest rivals with all three points.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Incumbents defeated in Montebello City Council race

Lopez-Reid, 53, and Bagwell, 67, both said putting an initiative before the voters on whether fire services should be under city or county control has been distorted. The opponents, including Salazar, who has sued the city on getting the initiative on a ballot, said the issue should be decided by the public.

NORTH WEST 10K: HOW TO AVOID HICCUPS THIS SUNDAY

first_imgHOW TO AVOID RACE DAY HICCUPS FOR SUNDAY’S NORTH WEST 10K1. GET UP EARLY: Give yourself plenty of time to breakfast and don’t eat anything different from your usual routine. Try to eat no later than an hour before the start. Don’t forget to hydrate.2. DRESS SMART: This is not the day to wear that snazzy new sports bra. You will regret it when it starts to chaff at the 3k mark. Wear road-tested kit. Just don’t experiment with new gear. 3. WARM UP: Walk or jog for 10-15 mins. The warm- up helps to slowly raise your heart rate and helps minimise stress on your heart when you start to run.4. LINE UP PROPERLY: Try to position yourself with runners of similar ability. If you line up with seasoned runners you will more than likely take off too fast and finish in a heap.5. RUN YOUR OWN RACE: You know how you’ve trained so try to find your rhythm. When the adrenaline kicks in, pace yourself. Don’t start too quickly and go hell for leather by following the pack.6. USE OTHER RUNNERS TO BOOST YOUR RUN: If you’re feeling tired, pick out someone a short distance ahead and try to maintain the same distance. Use the pace of other runners around you to keep,you going. 7. RELAX: If you’re tense you will be less efficient. Try to remember to relax your shoulders and focus on your breathing. This will help you run easier.8.
