76ers start West Coast road trip with Embiid on the bench

first_imgKammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa CPP denies ‘Ka Diego’ arrest caused ‘mass panic’ among S. Tagalog NPA The Sixers also play games at Sacramento, Golden State and the Los Angeles Clippers and Lakers. All teams on the trip except for the Kings have at least a .500 record. Embiid is expected to play against the Kings.The Sixers have won four straight games for the first time since January.“That means we’re growing and we’re learning,” Embiid said.J.J. Redick scored 31 points and hit eight 3s in Philly’s win over Indiana on Friday and suddenly seemed worth every bit of the $23 million the Sixers will pay him this season. The Sixers tied a team record against the Pacers with 18 3s.They will need more of that on the road from Redick — and there’s little reason to expect Simmons won’t continue to play like a top candidate for rookie of the year.Simmons had 14 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists against the Pacers for his second triple-double of the season. He joined Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson as the only rookies with multiple triple-doubles in the first nine career games. Simmons also has five double-doubles.Embiid and Simmons are each averaging at least 18 points and nine rebounds per game and are two of nine NBA players with such averages. The only other pair of teammates on the list is the New Orleans Pelicans’ DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis.“When everyone’s scoring, doing their thing, I think it’s hard to stop us,” Simmons said.They’re much harder to stop with Embiid in the lineup.Brown and the Sixers would like to try that out on a more regular basis.

His big numbers on the stat sheet finally draw more headlines than his social media posts.Embiid can just about do it all — except shed the “handle with care” sticker the Sixers seemed to have stamped on his uniform. Yes, Embiid has a medical chart as thick as a playbook, but the Sixers have decided to rest him Tuesday against the Utah Jazz as they monitor his number of games and minutes. Embiid has averaged 27.6 minutes and played in eight of nine games. He’ll miss the one four days after the Sixers beat Indiana.

Without Embiid, Philadelphia will be challenged to keep its four-game winning streak alive. The Sixers (5-4) open a nine-day, five-game road with their first winning record in November since 2012 and first time overall since Nov. 13, 2003.Richaun Holmes, Amir Johnson and maybe even Jahlil Okafor will get minutes against the Jazz.Embiid and rookie Ben Simmons have made the Sixers an early season surprise, and their record is a boost for a franchise that underwent one of the more painful NBA rebuilding efforts in decades.ADVERTISEMENT View comments Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Thackeray flays Shah Rukh for his ‘love for Pakistan’

first_imgShah Rukh KhanClick here to EnlargeShiv Sena Chief Bal Thackeray has described as “height of stupidity” Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s “love for Pakistan”.In an editorial in today’s issue of party mouthpiece “Saamna”, Thackeray said the actor who considers himself a ‘badshah’ has been shown his place by the Sena by protesting against his participation in an entertainment show to raise funds for Pakistani flood victims in London on November 28.”He came to his senses and cancelled his participation,” Thackeray claimed.”Why did Shah Rukh never feel that he should do a charity show for flood victims in India, for the 26/11 terror victims or for rehabilitation of Kashmiri Pandits who have been ousted from their homeland,” Thackeray asked.Describing himself as the watchdog of nationalistic ethos, Thackeray said it was his duty to take to task people like Shah Rukh “who were overflowing with love for Pakistan”.He also said the government should find out the reason why the actor feels so much for Pakistan. “A JPC should be instituted into this 2G spectrum like scam.”But Thackeray said he was not criticising Shah Rukh because he was a “Khan”.”If there was an Akshay or Devgn in his place, I would have done the same,” he said.The news report of Shah Rukh’s alleged participation in a show to be organised by a London-based Pakistani channel was given by “Saamna” based on an advertisement from the Internet.However, Shah Rukh is in Berlin shooting for Don 2 for the last couple of days.The actor had earlier earned the wrath of Shiv Sena for his comments lamenting the absence of Pakistani players in the IPL season 3. advertisementlast_img read more

James Anderson contradicts KP on Moores issue

first_imgIn a complete contradiction to what former captain Kevin Pietersen had said, England pace spearhead James Anderson on Saturday hailed the former coach Peter Moores and said that he was quite instrumental in transforming him into the leader of the English attack.England want to win 5th Test Anderson while explaining his elevation as a bowler attributed his growth to the former coach and said that it was not before Moores entrusted him with an added responsibility on the tour of New Zealand in early 2008 that he emerged as a potential weapon for the English cricket.”Peter Moores wanted me to lead the attack and gave me more responsibility. We were in New Zealand and Matthew Hoggard and Steve Harmison got dropped, and me and Broady (Stuart Broad) came in. He put a lot of faith in us and gave us a lot of responsibility and I think that’s boosted my confidence,” the bowler said.Pietersen, the captain of the side on that tour, had on Friday claimed that England would not have retained the Ashes with Moores still in charge.The fast bowler also signified the role of specialist fast-bowling coaches that England have employed in recent years and said that his development got accelerated with their advent.”Ottis Gibson was fantastic and Allan Donald was in there for a bit and someone I really enjoyed working with,” he expressed.”Now David Saker has been brilliant and we’re learning some good skills. In the four games so far we’ve been able to seam and swing the ball so we can reverse it,” Anderson said to Herald Sun.advertisementThe paceman, who has been the nemesis for the Australian captain Ricky Ponting during the current Ashes series dismissing the right hander cheaply in the first innings of each of the first three Tests, has also learned not to hesitate from confrontation and there is little doubt that the speedster has been able to get on the nerves of some Aussie cricketers.”Body language is a huge thing, certainly as a bowler. You don’t want to be seen trudging back to your mark so I try and keep my shoulders back and be as positive as possible. In the past I’ve been pretty average in that aspect,” Anderson mentioned.”It’s just part of my natural game. It really gets me fired up if the time is right. I don’t always do it and I pick the players as well as I possibly can,” the bowler added.The speedster, who is a part of the bowling unit that has so far claimed 70 Australian wickets, praised the effort of his teammates and attributed the Ashes success to the entire team.”It just shows what strength we have in the squad. We knew how dangerous Chris Tremlett could be on the Australian pitches and he’s proved that. And Tim Bresnan said he bowled like an old pro and that’s exactly what he did. He was very solid and very skillful in the second innings in Melbourne with the reverse swing. Broady was a big loss but it just shows we have guys to cover him,” Anderson said.With inputs from PTIlast_img read more
