Derrick Rose playing tonight against New York Knicks

first_img Ashley is a former basketball player who covers the Cleveland Cavaliers, Indians and high school sports for NEO Sports Insiders. She also covers the Cavs for SB Nation’s Fear The Sword. Ashley is a 2015 graduate of John Carroll University and previously worked in political journalism. You can follow her on Twitter @AshleyBastock42 CLEVELAND– Derrick Rose is playing tonight against his former team, and it will be his first game action since the second contest of the season.Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue confirmed during his pregame media availability that Rose would start against the New York Knicks. He has not seen the court since the fourth quarter against the Milwaukee Bucks on Oct. 20 after spraining his left ankle.Lue said Rose will be playing anywhere from 28 to 30 minutes. That is a typical minutes restriction, and what the Cavs like to keep Rose at regardless.“He’s healthy, he’s back, and we just have to see how he feels going through live play,” Lue said.This will be the Cavs’ fifth different starting lineup in seven games. With Rose’s reemergence, however, Lue and the Cavs are no doubt hoping that Cleveland can get back to where they were after two wins to begin the season against the Bucks and Boston Celtics. Since that time, the Cavs have dropped three out of their last four games.“I think you take into consideration the D-Rose injury and that really set us back,” Lue said. “I thought those first two games we were playing well, and especially defensively. After that, it’s been tough trying to maneuver guys in and out of the point guard position. There’s going to be ups and downs we knew that.” Related TopicsCavsClevelandCleveland CavaliersDerrick RoseNBANew York KnicksTyronn Luecenter_img Ashley Bastocklast_img read more

Pollard leads Mumbai to IPL glory

first_imgOn the back of a crucial knock from Kieron Pollard, the Mumbai Indians defeated the Chennai Super Kings by one run in a thrilling Indian Premier League (IPL) final here yesterday.Pollard top-scored with an unbeaten 41 in Mumbai’s seemingly below-par total of 149 for eight in their 20 overs.Shane Watson then smashed 80 from 59 balls to carry Chennai within sight of victory, but a spectacular final over from Lasith Malinga limited the Super Kings to 148 for seven in their 20 overs.Pollard’s 25-ball knock, laced with three sixes and three boundaries, rescued Mumbai from a precarious position of 101 for five in the 15th over.He put on 39 runs in the next four overs with Hardik Pandya and finished the innings in a blaze of glory by smashing two boundaries off the last two balls.Pollard’s Windies counterpart Dwayne Bravo went wicketless in three overs that cost 24 runs. 51-run partnership In their run chase, Watson and Bravo seemed on course to take Chennai to their target during a 51-run partnership for the fifth wicket.Even when Bravo was eventually dismissed for a run-a-ball 15 with the score on 133, Watson still continued to lead the charge by striking timely boundaries.Needing just eight runs from the final over for victory, Malinga produced a sensational final over to leave Chennai short by one run.Utilising yorkers to good effect, he conceded seven runs off his five balls, which also included the run out of Watson.Requiring a single run to tie the scores and force a super over, Malinga trapped Shardul Thakar leg before wicket, sparking wild celebrations from his teammates.Windies and Jamaican all-rounder André Russell copped the award for the IPL’s Most Valuable Player.last_img read more

Ole Miss’ Hugh Freeze advocates changing of state flag

first_imgMississippi head coach Hugh Freeze walks the sideline in the first quarter of an NCAA college football game against Vanderbilt Saturday, Sept. 6, 2014, in Nashville, Tenn. (AP Photo/Mark Humphrey)Mississippi head coach Hugh Freeze walks the sideline in the first quarter of an NCAA college football game against Vanderbilt Saturday, Sept. 6, 2014, in Nashville, Tenn. (AP Photo/Mark Humphrey)HOOVER, Ala. — Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said Thursday that he believes it is time to change the state flag of Mississippi.“In the late ’90s our university made a move to go away from the Confederate flag and being a Mississippian I have a great appreciation for the Mississippi people and the pride we have in the heritage and all those things,” Freeze said at SEC Media. “Unfortunately that symbol has been hijacked by some groups that mean ill-will towards some people.“While I’m not a political figure, I strongly believe it is time we move in a different direction and change the flag. Hopefully that’ll happen.”Freeze was at least the fourth coach to be asked the question this week, joining Mississippi State’s Dan Mullen.But the questions went a step farther with Freeze when he took the podium in the main media room in Hoover, Alabama.He was asked to elaborate on what he meant by repeatedly saying the Confederate flag had been “hijacked” and if he believed it wasn’t always a symbol tied to various hate groups.“I’m going to have to go study some and make sure I’m speaking about knowledge… But I know the people that I grew up around… did not (use) it in ill will toward anyone,” Freeze said.He was also asked if he thought Ole Miss’ “Rebels” nickname was appropriate.“We could get into the name of the Rebels and everything, and if that’s something that is troublesome to others, I’m sure that we would address that,” Freeze said. “But I haven’t heard that.”The issue has come to the forefront recently after South Carolina’s legislature voted to remove the Confederate flag from the state house. It left Mississippi as the only state with the Confederate flag as part of its state flag.It also left Mississippi as the only state banned from hosting pre-selected NCAA Championships.The NCAA banned Mississippi and South Carolina in 2001 from hosting championship events because of the presence of the Confederate flag in each state’s capitol grounds. South Carolina’s ban was lifted after the flag was removed.Freeze speaks on Tunsil, ‘confident’ program does things right wayThe Confederate flag used to be regularly found in the stands at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. It was waved by fans until the university banned it in the late 1990s.South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier and Alabama’s Nick Saban also strongly voiced their opinions on the subject earlier in the week.Freeze speaks on Tunsil, ‘confident’ program does things right way“I applaud our Governor for setting the initiative to remove the flag,” Spurrier said. “Obviously, all of us in college sports, we know the importance of equality, race relations, everybody getting along.”Added Saban: “My opinion is that any time we have a symbol that represents something that is mean-spirited or doesn’t represent equal rights for all people, I’m not for having that symbol represent anything we’re involved in.”Contact Riley Blevins at rblevins@jackson.gannett.com.

But Chelsea are adamant they do not want to sell at least until the end of their season.”The Telegraph, which broke the initial story of Costa being dropped for Saturday’s game at Leicester after a row, has subsequently reported that a number of Chelsea players have urged him to apologise and forget about the apparent interest from China, at least until the summer. Cesc Fabregas and skipper John Terry “have been working hard to try to make Costa see sense” the Telegraph say.ESPN, on the other hand, believe Costa is not looking to engineer a transfer during this window.ESPN Brasil has reported that the player has told friends he has no interest in a move to China despite reports of a lucrative offer. Meanwhile, speculation continues over Diego Costa’s future and who might replace him if he leaves Chelsea.The Sunday Express claim Chelsea have lined up the £75m signing of Germany forward Thomas Muller from Bayern Munich.And The Sun on Sunday tout Real Madrid’s Álvaro Morata for a potential move to Stamford Bridge.The Sunday Mirror reports that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has no intention of allowing Costa to move to China amid reports the striker has been made a huge offer to play in the Far East.“The owner is going to play hard-ball,” a source is quoted as saying.Embed from Getty Imagescenter_img  Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Drink This Before Bed, Watch Your Body Fat Melt Like Crazy x Easy Way to Generate Extra Income x 20 Heartbreaking Selfies Taken Right Before Tragedy. # 10 is Insane x Last Nights Episode Left Viewers Speechless! x Final Moment: What the Cameraman Captures Next is Heartbreaking x 20 Actors You Didn’t Know Were Gay – Number 16 Will Surprise You x Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Chelsea were ‘willing’ to pay €100m for player, club chief called…

first_imgJan Oblak committed his future to Atletico Madrid by signing a new deal that will keep him at the Spanish capital club until 2023. The goalkeeper’s release clause has been increased from €100m to €120m and his salary has shot up from €4m to €10m net per season.Last summer, the 26-year-old emerged as a transfer target for Chelsea as they were in the market looking for a replacement for Thibaut Courtois, who joined Real Madrid.Friday’s edition of Mundo Deportivo claims the west London club were ‘willing’ to deposit €100m in the La Liga side’s accounts to complete the transfer of  the Slovenia international last August.When Atletico owner Miguel Ángel Gil found out about the Blues potential making an approach for the shot stopper in the next 48 hours, Gil immediately called the player and his agent to block Oblak from possibly leaving the club.The keeper kept his word of extending his stay at the club for one more year and after signing a new deal earlier this week, Oblak’s likely to be at Atletico for the next few seasons. Chelsea then made an approach for the second choice target Kepa Arrizabalaga and he arrived at Stamford Bridge from Athletic Club Bilbao.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Game is a Must-HaveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoDating.comThe Most Handsome Guys In Hong Kong On This Dating SiteDating.comUndoPerfect-Dating.comReveal Tung Chung As The Best City to Date for Love & RomancePerfect-Dating.comUndoKeto减肥1個簡單的妙招一夜「融化」腹部贅肉(今晚試試)Keto减肥UndoCNBC InternationalHere’s How Big Businesses in Singapore Are Managing the Impact of COVID-19.CNBC InternationalUndo熱門話題小心會長過頭…網友推爆:「真的長得超誇張!」熱門話題UndoSingles50Hong Kong: A 40+ Dating Site That Actually Works!Singles50UndoCoworking Space | Search AdsThe cost of shared office in Hong Kong might surprise youCoworking Space | Search AdsUndolast_img read more
