Holiday saves Pelicans in win over 76ers

first_imgKiss-and-tell matinee idol’s conquests: True stories or tall tales? The 6-foot-4 Holiday, an Eastern Conference All-Star in Philadelphia before being traded to New Orleans in 2013, struggled to create scoring chances on dribble drives against the 6-foot-10 Simmons, missing eight of his first 12 shots. He shifted his focus to passing out of his drives and committed five turnovers.Then Holiday opened the fourth quarter by letting fly quick 3s and changed the game.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSBrian Heruela arrival bolsters Phoenix backcourt, defense“I guess it was just my turn at that time,” Holiday said. “Obviously, we were down and I was having a rough game passing the ball.”Rajon Rondo, who sat out the Pelicans’ collapse against Sacramento on Friday night, returned with 13 points and 18 assists. Holiday said Rondo fueled New Orleans’ 44-point fourth quarter with his ability to push the pace and “get everybody a good shot.”“My points are (thanks) to him,” Holiday asserted. “Right when he came back in, everything changed for me.”Anthony Davis added 29 points and DeMarcus Cousins 23 for New Orleans, which looked out-of-synch in the third quarter and in danger of dropping a second straight at home.“We didn’t want to happen what happened last game,” Holiday said. “That’s all that we kept on talking about.”Simmons, who played one season at LSU before being selected first overall in the 2016 draft, had 27 points and 10 rebounds. He dazzled the crowd with a handful of explosive, driving dunks, including a reverse jam along the baseline that had the Sixers as close as 108-107 with 7:26 left.ADVERTISEMENT But Holiday and Davis responded with 3s to make it 114-107.“Closing games out on the road is always difficult,” Sixers coach Brett Brown said. “It’s especially difficult with DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday” on the other team.J.J. Redick, who had 28 points, hit a tough 22-foot jumper that briefly cut the Sixers’ deficit to five with four minutes left, but Holiday again responded with a 3, and his final 3 a couple possessions later gave the Pelicans’ an 11-point lead with 2:54 to go.Already without 6-foot-9 starting forward Robert Covington, the Sixers scratched 7-foot center Joel Embiid minutes before the game because of back stiffness.“We have to be more consistent and make the right plays every time,” Simmons said. “When we make mistakes and do not have guys like Joel and Cov to make up for it, it gets tough. We have to just come together as a team and get through it.”Still, Philadelphia outrebounded New Orleans 47-33 and outscored the Pelicans 60-44 in the paint. The Sixers snagged 22 offensive rebounds, which tied a season-high and led to 20 second-chance points.TIP-INS76ers: Embiid, whose playing time had been limited since offseason knee surgery, was expected to play in New Orleans after sitting out in Cleveland on Saturday night. … Covington was ruled out because of a back injury stemming from his leap into the stands in Cleveland a night earlier. … Guard T.J. McConnell also was scratched with a left shoulder sprain. … Amir Johnson and Trevor Booker each had 16 points for the Sixers. … Dario Saric had 13 points and 11 rebounds. … Richaun Holmes scored 12 points.Pelicans: E’Twaun Moore had 14 points and Dante Cunningham 10. … Davis was called for a flagrant foul with 4:54 to go for lifting his elbow while setting a screen and hitting Simmons in the head. … Cousins’ playing time was limited when he was assessed his fifth foul with 9:33 left. … Reserve swing player Tony Allen dropped to the court in the first quarter before limping to the locker room on his own with what team officials said was a left knee injury.

AG asks court to strike out application seeking Cabinet’s resignation

first_imgAttorney General Basil Williams is seeking to have the High Court strike out an application filed by his predecessor, Anil Nandlall, to compel the David Granger-led coalition Cabinet to stop meeting and resign.Nandlall filed the Fixed Date Application (FDA) on Monday last, asking for an order compelling the Cabinet, including the President, to resign consequent upon the Government being defeated by the vote of a no-confidence on December 21, 2018, which is in accordance with Article 106 (6) of the Guyana Constitution.He is also asking for a Conservatory Order or an order restraining the Cabinet, inclusive of the President, from meeting, making decisions as, or performing the functions of Cabinet consequent of the successful passage of the motion as outlined in the Constitution.However, in a counter application, AG Williams wants the court to throw out the FDA.According to the court document, the AG is seeking an order from the court, striking out the Fixed Date Application filed by Nandlall, saying it is “an abuse of the process of the court”. He also wants a declaration that the court should not exercise its jurisdiction to grant the orders sought in the FDA.Williams argued that the FDA is an abuse of the process of the court and an affront to the doctrine of stare decisis or rule of precedent, and as such the court ought not to grant the orders asked for by Nandlall. He pointed out that those orders would require the court to make orders which the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ), being the highest court, ruled on already.“The court is being asked to adjudicate on an issue that the final court, the CCJ, has pronounced upon, and, as a consequence, the point is moot and clearly academic and a wanton abuse of the process of this Honourable Court,” the AG said in one of his grounds.Referring to the CCJ ruling on the No-Confidence Motion cases, Williams pointed out that one of the proposed consequential orders was for the President and the Cabinet to immediately resign and vacate office but the regional court “refused to make such an order and clearly outlined that the Cabinet and President remain in office but on a different footing in the nature of a caretaker Government”.The Trinidad-based Court had opined: “It is important, however, that the Court makes this point. In mandating that the Government shall remain in office notwithstanding its defeat and the resignation of the President and the Cabinet, Article 106 envisages that the tenure in office of the Cabinet, including the President, after the Government’s defeat, is on a different footing from that which existed prior to the vote of no confidence. Chancellor Cummings-Edwards, citing Hogg, the Canadian constitutional expert, was right to note that: By convention, the Government is expected to behave during this interim period as a caretaker and so restrain the exercise of its legal authority. It is this caretaker or interim role that explains the three-month deadline, in the first instance that the Article lays down, in principle, for the holding of the fresh elections.”To this end, AG Williams posited that “…it is in the Public Interest and a matter of Public Policy that the Fixed Date Application be struck out as being an abuse of the process of the jurisdiction of the court.”The People’s Progressive Party (PPP) Opposition has been contending that Guyana is in a constitutional crisis as the Government continues to delay the hosting of early elections, which was triggered by the December passage of the NCM.According to Article 106 (7), “Notwithstanding its defeat, the Government shall remain in office and shall hold an election within three months, or such longer period as the National Assembly shall by resolution supported by not less than two-thirds of the votes of all the elected members of the National Assembly determine, and shall resign after the President takes the oath of office following the election”.This means elections were to be held since March 21, 2019. However, with the legal challenges which ensued, that timeline was on pause but was subsequently reinstated after the July 18, 2019, CCJ ruling, which validated the passage of the motion.Against this backdrop, the Opposition was pushing for a September 18, 2019, polling day. But President Granger had insisted that he cannot set a date without first being advised by the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) on its preparedness to host General and Regional Elections.GECOM had come under heavy criticism for also deliberately delaying the elections by going ahead with the controversial House-to-House Registration. The constitutionality of this exercise was then challenged in court.In fact, Chief Justice Roxane George earlier this month ruled that the conduct of House-to-House is not unconstitutional or illegal. However, she noted that GECOM cannot operate as it would in a normal elections cycle. Given that the NCM triggered early elections, the Chief Justice had stated that there are other methods that can be used to sanitise the voters’ list in a timely manner such as Claims and Objections.She had also ruled that it would be unconstitutional for GECOM to remove qualified persons already on the voters’ list since the House-to-House exercise was aimed at creating a new National Register of Registrants (NRR) Database, which the Opposition said would have disenfranchised thousands of Guyanese.Nevertheless, the Elections Commission has since scrapped the House-to-House Registration, which had recorded over 300,000 new registrants, and is looking to merge the new data obtained with the existing NRR database – something which the Opposition is against.last_img read more

New residential neighbourhood seen as key aspect to boundary extension

first_imgMayor Ackerman says significant residential growth is occurring adjacent to the city’s boundary, while available developmental land inside our boundary is becoming scarce.“It’s really critical that the city provides some suitable residential and industrial lands within the next few years to support the anticipated growth in the region,” Mayor Ackerman explained.Ackerman went on to underline the need for an extension by comparing our population and square kilometre to surrounding communities. For example, Fort St. John has 22.7 square kilometres to accommodate a population of over 20,000, while Hudson’s Hope has 896.3 square kilometres for their population of approximately 1,000.- Advertisement -“We are building a very sustainable and tight community, and we’re just about at the end of our boundaries here,” Mayor Ackerman said.Director of Development, Ken Rogers says this year is shaping up to produce the highest number of permits since the construction of apartment buildings in 2007.“This year we’re ahead of last year in permits, and dwelling units are going to challenge 2007,” Rogers said.Advertisement Mayor Ackerman says that both Dr. Stanley Hamilton, who facilitated a taxation review for the city in 2009, and the Site C joint review panel have indicated the need for the city’s boundaries to be addressed.“The panel recommends, regardless of whether or not the project proceeds, that the province give sympathetic attention to an extension of Fort St. John’s municipal boundaries so that contiguous urbanizing area, plus reserve, are brought within the planning, service, and taxation ambit of the city’s government,” the recommendation reads.The City is now in step 4 of the process, seeking approval from members of the municipality, undertaking an avenue known as the Alternative Approval Process.The city will go ahead with step 5, Provincial Approval, unless at least 10 per cent of residents submit an Elector Response Form, indicating to the city that it must hold a referendum to obtain approval for the proposed extension.  Elector Response Forms are available at City Hall during the hours of 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. or on the city’s website.Advertisement Rogers explained that the build up of a new, high density, residential neighbourhood is a primary aspect of the boundary expansion, which is seen as more cost effective for the municipality, and in turn, more affordable for residents.  Cost efficiency comes into play when the same pipeline can feed numerous complexes, given the proximity to each other.  The expansion strategy also fits in nicely with both the downtown action plan and the official community plan. “With densification, amenities have to be addressed, don’t get me wrong, you don’t just density and leave it at that,” Rogers went on to say. “…You have to give them somewhere to go, somewhere to socialize, to meet, community functions, that sort of thing…In the end, it’s about growing the community in a healthy way.”Advertisementcenter_img Completed forms can be faxed to 250 787 8181, emailed to jprestley@fortstjohn.ca or delivered directly to City Hall.The deadline for Elector Response Forms is August 21, no later than 4:30 p.m.The number of elector response forms will than be counted and an administration report will be submitted to council for their consideration on August 25.last_img read more

Rangers boss told by Mike Ashley’s right-hand man he must play Newcastle loan signings

first_img1 Kenny McDowall Glasgow Rangers interim boss Kenny McDowall has revealed he has been ordered to play the five Newcastle United loan players added to his squad on transfer deadline day.Toon quintet Haris Vuckic from Slovenia, English defender Remie Streete, Burundi-born Gael Bigirimana, Swiss defender Kevin Mbabu and Northern Ireland winger Shane Ferguson have joined the Ibrox club until the end of the campaign.Newcastle owner Mike Ashley is a shareholder at Rangers with an 8.92 per cent stake, and he and Rangers face hearings before the Scottish Football Association in March over the Sports Direct owner’s possible breaches of dual interest rules.Speaking at the Murray Park training centre, McDowall, who has signalled his intent to leave at the end of the season, said: “On Monday night I got a call from Derek (Llambias, Rangers chief executive) saying he had secured five players on loan.“Three of them arrived and two of them will be coming the next three or four weeks – they are injured.“When I was given the job I was told players incoming and outgoing wouldn’t be my responsibility. I take the team and coach the team and I am more than happy to get on with it.Asked if he was duty-bound to play them, he replied: “Yes.”Then asked if he had to play every one of them every week, he again, replied: “Yes. They are obviously good players – they play for Newcastle – but I will carry on and do what I am told to do.”McDowall, who revealed the instruction to guarantee the loan players a game was given to him by Llambias and Rangers football board chairman Sandy Easdale, was asked how the dressing room might be affected.He said: “That’s the nature of being at a big club. There are always new players arriving at big clubs and it is something the players will have to deal with. It is competition and it is up to them and work hard at training and look after their own standards.“I would like to think the players would be professional and do their jobs. We will take it from there. I have been told what to do and I have told them I am more than happy to carry out what they have told me, so I don’t have a problem with it at all.“(The players are not aware at this moment) but they will know now, obviously.”Asked how he could be comfortable with the situation, McDowall added: “I have handed in my notice and have told the guys I am happy to take the team.“So I am not going to complain. I will carry out the instructions that they give me and do my best. I have a job to do and I am happy to do it.“The boys have come up to play and they will play. That’s just how it is. They are in the squad for Sunday (Scottish Cup tie against Raith Rovers).“I would like the fans to give them their support, they are playing with Rangers after all.“The lads are just here to play football. They are nice lads and look good players. It is not their doing. They are a welcome addition to our squad.”last_img read more

Needed: A Hall for ‘Gooses’

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa Anita I propose we put up a hall to honor the Goose Gossages of the world, all of the vivid characters, the cut-ups and the one-day wonders whose memories liven sports history but whose cold career statistics fail to impress the snooty Hall of Fame voters. Athletes from all sports, all levels, will be eligible. They’ll be judged on whether fans still talk about them fondly years after their retirements. Call our shrine the Hall of Famousness, and just to establish the tone up front, put a bar in the lobby with a big blonde on every other stool. You’ve heard the old saying that a player belongs in the Hall of Fame if you can’t write the history of his sport without mentioning him. Well, try writing the history of baseball without Roger Maris, the history of football without Alan Ameche, or the history of basketball without Dennis Rodman. Yet none of those guys is in a Hall of Fame. Not that Sutter doesn’t deserve his spot in a Hall of Fame that sets out to recognize serious career achievement. But there should also be a place for Gossage that rewards his role as a glowering, brash-talking, pinstripe-wearing icon of the game. If for nothing else, he should get a plaque somewhere just for being called Goose. This week’s news reminds us how badly sports needs another Hall of Fame, a new kind of Hall of Fame to honor an attribute that the stuffy old halls of fame too often overlook. Namely, fame. Bruce Sutter, the relief pitcher who helped to popularize the split-fingered fastball, was elected to baseball’s Hall of Fame on Tuesday. Goose Gossage, the relief pitcher who threw the ball 98 bleeping mph, came up a few dozen ballots short. center_img We’ll consider ’em for the Hall of Famousness. Google “Roger Maris” and you’ll find 330,000 mentions of a man who can’t get into the traditional hall. Google “Tom Seaver” and you’ll get 289,000 mentions for the man who got into the traditional hall with the highest vote percentage ever. So, did Seaver really achieve more fame than Maris? Maybe all of those athletes who dream of being Hall of Famers would have been better off as not-quite-Hall of Famers. The athletes on the cusp, the ones who just miss year after year, seem to inspire more talk. Bobby Thomson, whose shot was heard ’round the world, but not in Cooperstown, is hereby nominated for the Hall of Famousness. And Wally Pipp, who got more famous for not playing than most do for playing. And, of course, Pete Rose, belly on up – we’ve got a horse tip for you. The Hall of Famousness isn’t just for baseball. Football players who leap to our nostalgic mind: Max McGee, Billy “White Shoes” Johnson, Anthony Davis, Dickie Moegle, Tom Dempsey, Bill Carpenter (The Lonely End). Basketball players: Spencer Haywood, Rudy Tomjanovich, Dick Barnett, Darryl Dawkins, Marvin Barnes, Tree Rollins, Ernie DeGregorio. If you can be identified by one name (Goose, Bucky, Fernando), or an initial (Ernie D.), a sort of plant life (Tree) or a household appliance (Refrigerator), you’re in line for the Hall of Famousness. If your name ever appeared on a high-profile court docket (Curt Flood, as in Flood v. Kuhn, or Denny McLain, as in The People v.), you’re a candidate for the Hall of Famousness. If your name is synonymous with something (Tommy John, as in the surgery), you’re asked to begin preparing a speech for the Hall of Famousness. If you could have been a Hall of Famer but were stopped by injury or tragedy (Tony Conigliaro, Bo Jackson, Len Bias), you’re what we’re looking for at the Hall of Famousness. If you’re better known for your grooming (Joe Pepitone) than your playing, welcome. If you had one huge moment (Gar Heard), greetings. If you had style, made people shut up and watch (Chuck Foreman, David Thompson, Dick Allen, Jack Clark, Andre Dawson), swagger on in here. If people keep quoting you, whether they’re laughing with you or at you (Marvin Barnes), we’re listening. I see A.J. Pierzynzki in the Hall of Famousness someday. If fans somewhere are still cursing your name five years after your retirement, that’s a point in your favor. Baseball’s Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y., football’s in Canton, Ohio and basketball’s in Springfield, Mass. – not to mention the various hockey, golf, tennis, bowling, horse racing and motorsports halls of fame – do a fine job of what they mean to do. They preserve in plaques and busts the legacies of dozens of men (and women, in basketball’s case) who had enormous impacts on their games. The trouble is that dozens aren’t enough, and statistics aren’t the only measure of impact. So, a new Hall. Goose Gossage is our first nominee. Further suggestions will be accepted at the bar.
