LeBron cramps up; Spurs run past Heat in Game 1

first_imgMiami Heat forward LeBron James (6) sits on the bench after injuring himself against the San Antonio Spurs during the second half in Game 1 of the NBA basketball finals on Thursday, June 5, 2014 in San Antonio. (AP Photo/Eric Gay)SAN ANTONIO (AP) — LeBron James was resting on a training table in the back of the Miami Heat locker room an hour after Game 1 of the NBA Finals ended, feeling drained, pained and frustrated.The Heat star wasn’t stopped by San Antonio.Instead, he was stopped by the San Antonio heat.On a night where air conditioning failed and the AT&T Center turned into a steamy mess, James missed the final four minutes because of cramps and the San Antonio Spurs took full advantage.The Spurs closed the game on a 16-3 run as the four-time NBA MVP could only watch helplessly, beating the two-time defending champion Heat 110-95 on Thursday night in a rather bizarre opener to the title series.“After I came out of the game, they kind of took off,” James said. “And it was frustrating sitting out and not being able to help our team.”The heat, not the Heat and not even the Spurs, was the story.A power outage was blamed for the lack of cooling inside the arena, and ABC sideline reporter Doris Burke said during the network’s coverage that the temperature near the court in the third quarter was 88 degrees.Thousands of fans shed the black souvenir T-shirts that were left on their seats before the game, understandable since no one needed to wear layers on this night.Game 2 isn’t until Sunday. The NBA expects the arena’s issues to be repaired by then, and neither team was scheduled to practice there Friday or Saturday anyway.“I’m sure that both teams are going to be happy that we have a couple of days before the next game,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. “And hopefully, we can pay our bills.”Popovich’s deadpan comedy probably got as much notice as the effort by his team, which topped Miami in Game 1 of the finals for the second straight year.Tim Duncan scored 21 points on 9 for 10 shooting — the best percentage of his 230-game postseason career — for the Spurs, who got 19 points from Tony Parker and 16 from Manu Ginobili.Parker felt right at home, meaning his literal home.“Felt like I was playing in the European Championship,” Parker said. “We never have AC in Europe, so it didn’t bother me at all.”James led the Heat with 25 points, the last of those coming on a layup with 4:09 left that got the Heat — who led by seven with 9:38 left — within 94-92.After that play, James couldn’t move. He stood on the baseline as play went the other way, literally unable to coax another step out of his left leg.His night was over.Soon, so was Miami’s chances.“I think it felt like a punch in the gut when you see your leader limping like that back to the bench,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “But at the same time we still had an opportunity.”Not without James, they didn’t.Not with the way the Spurs were shooting, either. San Antonio closed on a 26-7 run in the final 6 minutes. Neither heat nor Heat would slow them down on this night.“Not NBA Finals-worthy,” Heat guard Dwyane Wade said, speaking of the conditions, in the locker room afterward. “I’ll tell you that. This is crazy.”Wade put an ice bag atop his head after his shower, sweat dripping off him to the point where it seemed as if he hadn’t even used a towel.Chris Bosh slumped back in his chair while drinking his fourth Gatorade of the postgame, still complaining that he couldn’t move.And while all that was happening, James was secluded in the Heat training room, getting 2-1/2 bags of intravenous fluids just so he could limp out of the arena.Cramps have been an issue for him before, even in the NBA Finals. When temperatures started soaring Thursday night, he knew he was in trouble.“It was an unusual circumstance,” James said. “I never played in a building like that.”He drank as many liquids as he could at halftime, changed into a dry uniform, put cold packs on his neck during stints on the sideline. In the end, nothing was enough.It’s not the first time electricity has had a significant impact on a championship event in recent years.The Super Bowl in 2013 between Baltimore and San Francisco was marred by a power outage at the Superdome in New Orleans, interrupting play for 34 minutes.“It’s frustration and there’s anger,” James said. “But at the same time, it’s something you try to prevent, you try to control. I got all the fluids I needed to get. I did my normal routine I’ve done. It’s something that was inevitable for me tonight.”last_img read more

No major silverware in the recent history, failing to secure a Champions League spot, and now they are down in 10th position in the table this season.

10 months agoSouthampton boss Hasenhuttl won’t write off Forster

first_imgSouthampton boss Hasenhuttl won’t write off Forsterby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveSouthampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl hasn’t yet wrote off Fraser Forster.The Mirror says Hasenhuttl is weighing up bringing goalkeeper Forster in from the cold as he bids to assess all the players he has inherited at third-bottom Saints.Forster joined Southampton in 2014 for £10million from Celtic weeks after being selected in England’s World Cup squad and nailed down the No.1 spot. But he hasn’t played since December 2017, when Mauricio Pellegrino was manager, after losing his place following a dip in form.The 6ft 7in, six-cap former Newcastle trainee was replaced as first choice by Alex McCarthy, who retained the role throughout Mark Hughes’ nine-month reign and then for the first five games under Hasenhuttl.The Austrian then used Southampton’s last two games, against Chelsea and Derby, to run the rule over England Under-21 stopper Angus Gunn.

first_imgEx-Man Utd boss ​Mourinho: De Gea lucky to get new contractby Ansser Sadiqa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho believes that David De Gea is lucky to get a new contract at the club.United renewed goalkeeper De Gea with a four-year contract, giving him a salary raise.Mourinho, who was United manager until last December, does not believe the Spaniard has shown the recent form to merit the deal.”I think the moment where he signs his huge contract is the moment where I don’t think United need to pay as much as that to have him,” Mourinho stated on Sky Sports.”One or two years ago he had the world after him and, in this moment, when he signed his incredible contract, I think the majority of the big doors were closed.”Real Madrid’s door is closed, they don’t sign a goalkeeper after [Thibaut] Courtois, Barcelona is closed with the young and fantastic [Marc-Andre] Ter Stegen, Paris Saint-Germain is closed because they signed Keylor Navas, who is a very good goalkeeper and 34 years old for a goalkeeper is not a problem at all.”I don’t see United under pressure because David is going to disappear. Who is going to pay these numbers? So, I think he gets a phenomenal contract in a moment where he is a bit lucky to get it.”Is he good? Yes, he’s very good, in the same way I was saying that [Victor] Lindelof is good in some aspects and not as good in other aspects of the game, I could say the same about David.”He is much better on the line than he is coming out but I think in goal his agility, his technical level, is second to none.” About the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Football Offensive woes a onetime occurrence

OSU redshirt junior quarterback J.T. Barrett (16) looks downfield during a rush during the first half against Indiana on Oct. 8. The Buckeye’s won 38-17. Credit: Mason Swires | Assistant Photo EditorThe No. 2 Ohio State football team got back to the Woody Hayes Athletic Center on Sunday to evaluate its performance in the 38-17 win against Indiana. Coach Urban Meyer said after Saturday’s game that the lack of production in the passing game was “alarming.” Meyer’s consensus after watching film was a little more reserved.“There were a couple mis-hits that usually hit (deep passes), or when we do hit we’re dominating. If we don’t hit, we have to work a little harder,” Meyer said. “‘Alarming’ is probably a little over-reactive, but we’ve just got to get to practice and get it better.”On the surface, a 21-point victory is something to celebrate, but redshirt junior quarterback J.T. Barrett said after the game that he knows he and the team can play better. Barrett threw for just 93 yards on 9-for-21 passing with one touchdown and one interception. The dismal offensive performance yielded just 383 total yards, OSU’s lowest of the season.At some point this season, OSU was going to have to come down to Earth. The numbers the offense was putting up before its modest performance on Saturday were almost unbelievable, given what the team had lost the prior year. Barrett said that this past week’s humbling affair might be a good thing in the end.“Being we had our struggles in that game … definitely it lets us reflect and fix the mistakes we had,” he said.Through four games, the 2016 Buckeyes’ offense registered 57 points per game, but had its fair share of vulnerable moments. Indiana marked the third game out of five where OSU had a first-quarter turnover and its first game where the offense didn’t appear as a cohesive unit.“I think on offense … there were times where we had everyone on the same page and that’s when we had the more successful plays,” Barrett said. “We were in good plays lots of times and whether it be me messing up on an assignment or a read, or a receiver messing up or O-line messing up, we weren’t clicking on all cylinders on all units, so often times that was the problem.”Commonly referred to as “the lab,” the film room serves as the Buckeyes’ best friend after a week of stagnation from the side of the football that Meyer has revolutionized since his arrival in Columbus. Not only will OSU evaluate and attempt to correct the mistakes it made against the Hoosiers, the offense transitions into the toughest defense it has seen thus far.The No. 8 Wisconsin Badgers will be the best team the Buckeyes have faced so far this season. Its defense ranks among the elite in several categories. The Badgers allow just 12.2 points, 291.4 total yards and 90.4 rushing yards per game, the last being first in the Big Ten and sixth in the country. Their red zone defense has allowed team’s to score inside the 20 just 55 percent of the time, second in the country.“On defense, they’re outstanding. They’re what they’ve been,” Meyer said. “It’s amazing that they’ve had coach transition. They’ve changed defensive coordinators and it’s a very similar defense. It’s Wisconsin’s defense.”Redshirt senior center Pat Elflein and his offensive line will be going against a perennial pass rushing defense, which also prides itself on stopping the run. Elflein said that he is not worried about Barrett or any of the other units on the offense having another disappointing performance against Wisconsin.“That’s our motto here, and that’s what we always do is ‘Just do your job,’” Elflein said. “I’m worried about my job and secondly the five guys around me, them doing their job. I know J.T. is going to do his job and if we do our job, that give J.T. an opportunity to do his job, which he does very well.”For Meyer, his trust in his quarterback is unwavering.“J.T. is fine. J.T. is going to play well,” he said.The Buckeyes play Wisconsin at Camp Randall Stadium at 8 p.m. on Saturday. read more
