Rodgers: Spurs still in title hunt

first_img Liverpool and Tottenham are seen as top-four contenders but Rodgers believes the Londoners are still in the hunt for top spot, currently occupied by Arsenal with a five-point cushion. They may only be averaging a goal a game over the first 15 matches, making them the lowest scorers in the top 11, but Rodgers said that does not do justice to their quality. “People look at Spurs and question how they’ve done but I think they’ve done terrifically,” he said. “They have a strong and deep squad and they are right up there in the league. “There are six or seven teams involved in the race for the top four. “Everyone will look at Manchester City as having the outstanding squad but Tottenham will look at what they have spent and they will give themselves a chance of maybe winning the title. “Chelsea historically have been up there and Arsenal have made an excellent start also, so I think it is open. “We really relish going there (White Hart Lane). Our last two performances, the goals we have scored have been outstanding and we know we can go anywhere and score goals.” Spurs’ season so far has been widely dismissed as one of under-achievement but they lie only three points behind the second-placed Reds. That is in addition to managing a Europa League campaign which has seen them qualify for the last 32 with a 100 per cent record. Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers believes Sunday’s opponents Tottenham have been under-estimated by many but insists his side will not be taking them lightly. While Rodgers has maximised the return he has had from strikers Luis Suarez and the injured Daniel Sturridge with 15 and nine league goals apiece, Tottenham have struggled up front. Roberto Soldado, a £26million summer signing from Valencia, has scored just four league goals but his midweek Europa League hat-trick helped boost his season’s tally to nine. “There is that adaptation period. They spent a lot of money bringing him in but even a player of that quality can take some time to settle in,” said Rodgers. “He benefits in and around the box. I think his record over the last couple of years shows he scored once from outside the box but his hat-trick will give him a confidence.” Rodgers will also be without captain Steven Gerrard for possibly the next six weeks as he recovers from a hamstring injury. His absence has highlighted the need to strengthen the squad and the manager hopes to be as successful in this January window as he was 12 months ago when he brought in Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho, both of whom have become integral players. “It’s not just about getting them, it’s what’s available that can improve you,” he said. “Everyone knows that January is a difficult window. We did a remarkable piece of business last January in Coutinho and Sturridge. “If there is a player or players out there that will improve our team, I know the owners will support that. They have been outstanding for me. “It’s just on the availability of the right type of player, and that has to be a player than can come into the team and improve us.” Press Associationlast_img read more

Coleman sees future Bolt-Gatlin style rivalry with De Grasse

first_imgCHRISTIAN Coleman hopes to form a sprinting rivalry with Andre De Grasse akin to that established between Usain Bolt and Justin Gatlin.Bolt was the dominant sprinter for close to a decade, claiming eight Olympic gold and 14 IAAF World Championship medals before a hamstring injury saw his career end in distressing circumstances as he failed to finish Saturday’s 4x100m relay final.In his last individual event, the Jamaican had to settle for 100m bronze as Gatlin – cast as the villainous foil for Bolt due to his two doping bans – finally got the better of his sprinting adversary in a global final, with 21-year-old Coleman taking the silver in his first appearance on the stage.De Grasse, 22, collected 100m bronze and 200m silver medals at Rio 2016 and was expected to add to his haul in London until a hamstring injury forced him to withdraw.Bolt and Gatlin spoke at the Worlds about their amicable relationship despite years of facing each other on the track, and Coleman – who plans to add the 200m to his repertoire in Qatar in two years – hopes to have similar competition with De Grasse when they seek to stake their claim for dominance over the coming years.Coleman told Omnisport: “(De Grasse) is a great competitor. He’s a great guy as well. I would have liked to compete with him but, unfortunately, he had an injury. I’m sure he’ll be in contention for years to come and I’m looking forward to it.“Maybe (there will be a rivalry), just because we are two guys who people are saying will be in contention to win medals in the future and just like Gatlin and Bolt, they compete against each other year after year, they have a great rivalry and they’re still friends. (Omnisport)“I think we can maybe develop something like that, but you’ve still got to take it one year at a time, one race at a time, and put the work in and don’t take anything for granted. “You’ve just got to continue to work and let the media worry about stuff like that.”last_img read more

Cross: Why Badgers acquiring, starting Malik Zaire might not be best thing for program

first_imgThis offseason for Wisconsin football started the same way it did a year ago, a new unproven defensive coordinator at the helm and plenty of mystery around the quarterback position. While the coordinator position is set in stone in Jim Leonhard, the question over who will lead the Wisconsin offense onto the field next fall is still up in the air as Notre Dame graduate transfer quarterback Malik Zaire is expected to decide between UW and North Carolina in the coming week.Despite the excitement of bringing in someone like Zaire in a situation that seems eerily similar to the former tale of a transfer named Russel Wilson, the move might not be the best for UW this next season. It is now three weeks into spring practice and redshirt sophomore Alex Hornibrook has been the starter since day one, begging the question whether Zaire could even adapt Wisconsin’s vastly different system from Notre Dame in time for game one.Football: Successful pro day propels Badgers into NFL draftWith the 2017 NFL Draft just six weeks away, and the combine in the past, players across the country are Read…That being said, Zaire has to land somewhere, and with head coach Paul Chryst’s dual quarterback system a year ago, the move could very well result in a big change at the position.The former Fighting Irish leader and four-star recruit certainly has plenty of talent, playing three seasons in South Bend and posting an adjusted quarterback passer rating of 86.5 in the one year he started more than a couple of games. Also in that span, he averaged 10.7 yards per attempt and threw at 65 percent.Those numbers, however, came in a season in which he was used as a glorified back up and not someone who could be expected to dip his feet in a program and take over. He competed for the starting spot a season ago, only to be outlasted by Deshone Kizer on the way to a loss to Texas and the last night that Notre Dame would stay in the AP top 25.Following the battle against the Longhorns, the Irish completely folded the rest of the season, finishing 4-8. Despite all the turmoil and failure, Zaire’s was barely even mentioned in consideration for the starting job.Bumbaca: Obituary for careers of Nigel Hayes, Zak Showalter, Bronson Koenig, Vitto Brown after four unforgettable years at WisconsinThe careers of University of Wisconsin men’s basketball players Zak Showalter, 23; Nigel Hayes, 22; Vitto Brown, 21; and Bronson Read…Even with Chryst’s relationship with Zaire when originally recruiting him in 2011, questions over his dedication to Wisconsin are more relevant than ever as his decision has taken over five months to reach a conclusion. The reason the quarterback is even forced to make a decision now is the decided transfer of LSU’s quarterback Brandon Harris, who is now the newest Tar Heel as of a week ago.The smart choice with the Badgers is, as usual, the boring choice. Hornibrook provides a safety blanket with an upside that is hard to ignore.With three more years of eligibility and seven starts under his belt against some of the best teams in the country, Hornibrook could very well give Wisconsin the stability it needs to make a push for another Big Ten championship appearance.With time behind an almost-all-returning offensive line and a young receiving core to develop over time, the Badgers should already have the answer they need to be their starting quarterback.last_img read more

Lakers’ Lonzo Ball looks to get himself going after a pair of pedestrian efforts

first_imgEL SEGUNDO — With his thumbs hooked into the armpits of his mesh practice jersey, Lonzo Ball faced the media on Tuesday at the Lakers’ practice facility and agreed that his team could use more from him as they head into Wednesday’s home game against the Dallas Mavericks, and beyond.For the past two games, Ball started at point guard even after veteran guard Rajon Rondo returned to the lineup following a three-game suspension. In the first of those games, a 110-106 loss to the Spurs in San Antonio, Ball shot 2 for 8 and had six points. On Monday, in 124-120 loss to the Timberwolves in Minnesota, Ball finished with four points on 2-for-6 shooting.In that span, Ball also accounted for four assists, three rebounds and no steals – a dramatic drop from the dynamic efforts he put forth during Rondo’s absence, when he scored 36 points, had 20 assists and eight steals. (By comparison, Rondo was more involved: He scored 12 points on 4-for-8 shooting against San Antonio and 13 on a 6-for-9 outing against Minnesota.)“For me, it all starts on defense. Getting some steals, rebounding the ball, and when I do that, my shot starts falling and I just feel more into the game,” said Ball, whose minutes have dropped from 31 per game to 24 since Rondo returned. “Different techniques, we try them all,” Walton said. “Being hard on him, encouraging him, running plays for him. But we see it. He’s a young point guard and we’ll continue to monitor it and work on it.”THEY DON’T WANT LEAKSIf the Lakers are going to rebound soon from their uncomfortable, if not entirely unexpected, 2-5 start, they’ll have to figure out how to grab defensive rebounds and rev the fast-break.Among the issues crystallized by a review of the film after Monday’s 124-120 loss in Minnesota was this: The Lakers – who allowed 20 offensive rebounds to the Timberwolves – might need a plumber.“We want to run fast, so I think sometimes we got guys leaking out, trying to play fast,” said guard Josh Hart, who finished with six rebounds Monday. “So we’ve just gotta finish defensive possessions with a rebound.”Stressed Walton: “We don’t want any leaking out, we want zero leaking out; if you see someone leaking out, that’s a mistake.”Related Articles Entering Tuesday, the Lakers’ 10.6 offensive rebounds per game ranked 18th in the NBA. Their 10.7-per-game rate last season, when teams weren’t pushing the tempo nearly so hard, ranked fourth.Although Hart and Ball both bemoaned the number of offensive rebounds they allowed, the Lakers finished with 17 offensive rebounds of their own – and both teams were equal on the boards otherwise, with 31 defensive rebounds apiece.“They’re a big team,” Walton said. “We know that’s what they do, they bully other teams around, you’ve got to give them credit for that.”What most vexed Walton, he said, were the 36 points allowed in the first quarter.“We keep preaching defense,” he said. “But we didn’t do a good job putting out the type of effort you need in the first quarter.” Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years “We’ve got so many guys,” said Ball, who is averaging 9.9 points, 4.6 rebounds and 4.1 assists after missing most of the offseason due to a meniscus injury that required surgery in mid-July. “If you’re not doing your job, you’re gonna get pulled quick. That’s just how it is. If it’s not clicking that day, you don’t play.”So the Lakers coaches have Ball’s attention, and Head coach Luke Walton promised they’ll keep on the 21-year-old, second-year pro to get the most out of him.

What time does NBA Draft start today? Live TV coverage, pick order, prospects, mock draft

first_imgBrandon Clarke, Big, GonzagaClarke’s age (23) is a reasonable concern, but he measures out better than most in the publicly available statistical projections. Given the urgency some of the teams in the top 10 are placing on competing sooner rather than later, Clarke is worthy of a look. He contributes to winning basketball.De’Andre Hunter, Forward, VirginiaTo a degree, Hunter epitomizes this draft class. He’s good, not great. He’s very good at a lot of things, but probably not necessarily elite at any one of them. He’s already 21 years old, and his upside isn’t very exciting on its face. Still, he’s a near lock to be a lottery pick.Darius Garland, Point, VanderbiltGarland is a beneficiary of the evolution of Portland’s Damian Lillard and the immediate success of Atlanta’s Trae Young. Dynamic pull-up shooting with range has a floor-shaping effect, and the Vanderbilt product has the potential to be the latest point guard to put it to use.

Whether you project him as the next great oversized initiator or a superstar do-it-all prospect — think Draymond Green minus some basketball IQ and plus a lot of athleticism — he figures to be a hugely valuable NBA piece.Ja Morant, Point, Murray StateBall-dominant point guards who can generate offense for themselves and their teammates have increasingly become one of the most valuable archetypes in the NBA alongside plus-sized wing creators. The best bet to fulfill that role in the 2019 class is Morant.RJ Barrett, Wing, DukeBarrett has a quick enough first step to get past defenders and without such a packed lane, his decision-making and finishing should improve. There aren’t many other wings in this class with size and creator potential.Jarrett Culver, Wing, Texas TechCulver possesses some statistical traits that bode well for his upside. He can generate offense from advantaged situations and provide some playmaking. Defensively, Culver is able to contain opponents on the ball and impact plays away from the ball even if he’s occasionally aloof. There is no rest when it comes to the NBA calendar. Only a week after the Raptors won the title and days after the Lakers reportedly acquired Anthony Davis from the Pelicans in a blockbuster trade, commissioner Adam Silver will announce the picks at the 2019 NBA Draft.The Pelicans will select Zion Williamson with the No. 1 overall pick, kicking off their rebuild in a post-Davis world. The Grizzlies and Knicks are expected to take Ja Morant and RJ Barrett with the next two picks, but the rest of the draft board could get messy with this group of prospects lacking star power.last_img read more

Jimmy Butler free agency rumors: Lakers pushing for meeting with star

first_imgThe Lakers are making a strong push for Jimmy Butler. The New York Times reported just hours before free agency begins that the Lakers are pushing for a pitch meeting with Butler. The report notes that Los Angeles is making the “latest aggressive” bid to try and land the star forward as it will have to try and entice Butler away from signing with the Heat.  Related News NBA free agency rumors: Jazz showing ‘significant’ interest in Bojan Bogdanovic Jimmy Butler meets with Heat officials at 6:01 PM ET tonight but continues to draw interest from a number of suitors, league sources say, with the Lakers making the latest aggressive bid. Lakers officials, I’m told, are pushing for a pitch meeting with Butler— Marc Stein (@TheSteinLine) June 30, 2019The Associated Press reported earlier this week that Butler is “very interested” in playing with Miami and he will meet with the franchise Sunday, though that would likely have to be a  a sign-and-trade scenario, similar to the type of deal that has been speculated between Butler and the Rockets. He’s also expected to meet with Houston early next week. “Hopefully I’ll get a max contract anywhere I choose to go,” Butler told reporters about his free agency last month. “You always want to be able to win, I think that’s key for sure. You’re looking at coaches, you’re looking at the city. There’s a lot that goes into it.” Butler started the season with the Timberwolves before he was traded to the 76ers in mid-November. In 55 regular-season games with Philadelphia, Butler averaged 18.2 points and 5.3 rebounds while shooting 33.8% from 3-point range. He played an integral role in helping the 76ers reach the Eastern Conference semifinals before they fell to the Raptors in seven games.As expected, Butler declined his player option that was worth more than $19 million for the 2019-20 season.
