Warriors come back to beat Wizards; Green, Beal ejected

first_imgMOST READ Jo Koy: My brain always wants to think funny Golden State Warriors’ Draymond Green, left, argues with a referee during the first half of an NBA basketball game against the Washington Wizards, Friday, Oct. 27, 2017, in Oakland, Calif. (AP Photo/Ben Margot)OAKLAND, Calif. — Golden State lost its emotional leader when Draymond Green was ejected shortly before halftime. The defending champs were sloppy again, even forgetting several plays after one timeout and still somehow won — but it has hardly been easy so far.Kevin Durant had 31 points, 11 rebounds and six assists to help rally the Warriors from 18 points down and beat the Wizards 120-117 on Friday night, a game marred by a fight between Green and Washington’s Bradley Beal that led to both being tossed.ADVERTISEMENT The Warriors are still trying to figure things out, having given up 17 offensive rebounds two nights earlier in holding off the Raptors and also committing 17 turnovers — which they did again Friday.Golden State began 1 for 10 from 3-point range while committing seven turnovers and allowing six 3s by early in the second quarter. But the Warriors did enough to win a fourth straight at home against the Wizards.“We’re not ready, we’re still not ready,” coach Steve Kerr said. “We’re not locked in.”Wall had 20 points and 14 assists for Washington. Kelly Oubre Jr. scored 19 and Marcin Gortat had 18 for the Wizards, whose three-game winning streak to open the season was snapped in embarrassing fashion with a 102-99 overtime loss at the Lakers on Wednesday.AL ATTLES NIGHTThe Warriors honored beloved Al Attles, who missed his tribute night because he’s in the hospital. The 80-year-old Attles is in his 58th year with the franchise as a player, coach of the 1975 title team, a GM and now ambassador.Kerr wore an itchy, “100 percent polyester” retro suit for the occasion, while Warriors players wore shooting shirts featuring his likeness and a bobblehead was the giveaway.His wife, Wilhelmina Attles, son, Alvin Attles III, and Hall of Famer Rick Barry represented him during an on-court tribute after the first quarter.“Great to honor him,” Kerr said. “I know our fans who have been following us for a long time know about Al’s influence, but 57 years with the organization, obviously he won the championship with the team in ’75, was GM, drafted Chris Mullin, one of the best players early on in the Warriors history. He’s pretty much done it all. Fitting tonight we will honor him and his family. We know he’ll be watching on TV. I hope he’s not offended by my suit.”TIP-INS Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

I’ll do that with the league tomorrow,” Beal said. “We just got into it and things got out of hand and we both got ejected. I told my teammates I can’t put myself in a situation like that to leave them out there to battle out against a tough team without me out there.”Green had to be pulled away from the skirmish by Andre Iguodala and Warriors security personnel. Green was tossed after getting his second technical foul. The back of his uniform was torn from near his right shoulder down to his waist.“I thought Draymond defended himself and bit the bullet of being ejected for the game,” West said.Green was hit with his first technical at the 8:05 mark of the second quarter for arguing an offensive foul call. He had six assists, three points, three rebounds and three blocks before his early exit.ADVERTISEMENT Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ Formula One: Retirement not on Hamilton mind as fourth title beckons View commentslast_img read more

Manchester United risk losing Anthony Martial for free in 2019

first_img 2 Anthony Martial has fallen down the pecking order at Manchester United since the arrival of Alexis Sanchez. 2 Anthony Martial looks set to leave Manchester United this summer, with Juventus leading the queue Juventus may wait until 2019 to try and sign Anthony Martial after being deterred by Manchester United’s £70 million valuation.The Serie A side, who have a fantastic record when signing free agents from Europe, were only willing to pay £55 million for the France international. But, according to Tuttosport, Juve may wait until next summer to sign Martial for free.Earlier this month, the Italian giants completed the free signing of Emre Can from Liverpool.Despite wanting him since last summer, Juve decided to wait and hold off from paying £35 million for the midfielder – instead signing him for free.Martial signed for Manchester United in 2015, for an initial fee of around £36 million. However, there were various clauses inserted into his contract which meant the Red Devils paid a fee closer to £58 million.After enjoying an incredible debut season, the signings of several other forwards pushed the former Monaco striker further and further down the pecking order.The lack of play time proved too much for Martial and his agent, who revealed his client wanted to leave Old Trafford earlier this month.Should a deal prove too difficult to complete, Juve also have their sights set on Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata or Inter Milan captain Mauro Icardi.last_img read more

THE HOOPS REPORT: CELTIC WIN AND STRETCH LEAD OVER RANGERS

first_imgFROM NEIL DOHERTY IN PAISLEY: James Forrest is a rising star and scored in Celtic’s 2-0 win over St Mirren today – hours after being named as one of Fifa’s 13 young players to watch.While Rangers drew 1-1 against Aberdeen, Neil Lennon’s men were making hard work against the Paisley side.But Forrest’s low controlled shot after 70 minutes and Scott Brown’s curler 17 minutes later won it for Celtic to stretch their lead at the top of the SPL to four points. It’s Celtic 12th league win in a row and represents another massive turn of fortunes for the Hoops.It was a tricky fixture against a side which beat Rangers here on Christmas Eve and at the end of a game in which St Mirren’s attempts at scoring were double that of Celtic’s, it once again said a lot for the Hoops defence and keeper Fraser Forster who pulled off a few fine saves.“It was important to keep the run going, we’ve had a great couple of months,” said Forster afterwards who singled out man of the match Forrest for his special goal.“We’ve got great quality in those areas. James’ has scored another cracker,” he added. “We’ve got a solid and consistent back four and we just need to keep that going. Once we got that goal we knew that we could keep a clean sheet.“We knew it would be a hard game. The most important thing was to get three points today,” said the keeper.Rangers’ draw however made a special day for Lennon.And the Hoops boss admitted it had been far from easy against Danny Lennon’s side.He said: “I’m ecstatic with the win, that game was probably our most difficult of this run. “The conditions have made it difficult, it’s been a really tough day. The wind was strong, it was swirling around the stadium and it was wet.“You need your keeper to do well particularly away from home.”Meanwhile one of Rangers’ best player Nikica Jelavic is moving to West Ham.LEAVE YOUR COMMENT BELOW © 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailySell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comTHE HOOPS REPORT: CELTIC WIN AND STRETCH LEAD OVER RANGERS was last modified: January 21st, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:CelticRangersst mirrenthe hoops reportlast_img read more
