Emmanuel Mudiay and Michael Beasley had 22 points apiece for the Knicks.“You have to play well to win on the road,” Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek said. “We played well in parts.”The 76ers stretched their four-point halftime advantage to 91-77 on Saric’s layup with 2:42 left in the third period. New York never threatened in the final quarter thanks in large part to Saric, who raised his game in Embiid’s absence.“He is such a big part of this team,” Brown said. “He loves basketball. He is a great teammate. He is trending up.”Fultz, the No. 1 overall pick in last June’s draft, played for the second straight game after sitting out for most of the season while recovering from a shoulder injury.

He’s a tough guy. All I can do is pray for him.”Embiid finished with five points and three rebounds in eight minutes.FULTZ FROM THE LINEFultz made the first of two free throws when he went to the line with 2:47 left in the third quarter. It was his first trip to the stripe since his return.His free-throw shooting was highly scrutinized early in the season and was the most telling sign that something was off with his shot.

WATCH: Drogba fires late winner against Gerrard’s LA Galaxy and goes crazy!

first_imgDidier Drogba scored a dramatic winner for Montreal Impact against LA Galaxy on Saturday – and celebrated like he’d won the Champions League!The 38-year-old, who has been a big hit in the MLS since arriving from Chelsea in 2015, benefited from a terrible blunder by Galaxy goalkeeper Brian Rowe.Deep into stoppage time and with the scores locked at 2-2, Rowe somehow managed to divert a Drogba free-kick into the back of the net when catching the ball seemed easier to gift Montreal the win.It was cruel on Galaxy, who had Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard in their ranks, and Drogba rubbed salt into the wounds by embarking on a wild celebration.Check it out above and watch fan footage of the goal below…last_img

How Man United could line-up after spending £100m budget in January transfer window

first_imgWith Godin available for around £20million, United would still have a further £80million to continue strengthening their defence – meaning a big-money bid could be submitted for Napoli ace Koulibaly.He has been a long-term target of Chelsea’s having performed so superbly under Maurizio Sarri, but the Red Devils now want to bring the Senegal international to Old Trafford. Barcelona are believed to have already had a £62million offer for Koulibaly, 27, rejected by Napoli, but United could tempt the San Paolo club into selling their prize asset by improving on Barca’s bid by a further £18million.Deals for Koulibaly and Godin would instantly propel United’s central defence into the elite category, and they will be joined in the back line by Shaw, who is certain to keep his starting place after his excellent beginning to the season.This would result in Mourinho’s final task being to improve the right-back position, with Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia needing to be replaced and teenager Diogo Dalot lacking the quality and experience to fulfil that task as of yet. REPLY Mourinho has been struggling to get his Man United team firing on all cylinders this season 5 How Man United could line-up after the January transfer window Shaw has been widely lauded as Man United’s best player this season REVEALED shining Latest Football News Godin remains one of the most highly-rated defenders in world football ADVICE And United could bring in a superb upgrade for free, with the Manchester Evening News suggesting Dani Alves could be a target of Mourinho’s following the player’s admission that he wishes to turn out in the Premier League before his career comes to an end.At 35 Alves, the Brazil international, would be nothing more than a short-term fix, but he remains of the highest quality and would bring something to United’s dressing room they have lacked since Zlatan Ibrahimovic departed – experience of winning… a lot.He’s claimed trophies in Spain, Italy and France, and when he won the Coupe de la Ligue with Paris Saint-Germain earlier this year Alves became the most successful footballer in the history of the game.Mourinho has previously wanted to sign Alves, and a move to Old Trafford in January certainly suits both parties.A back line of Alves, Koulibaly, Godin and Shaw would be rock solid defensively and exhilarating going forward, and would certainly put United in a strong position to fight back for a top four finish in the second half of the season. no dice REVEALED Where Ancelotti ranks with every Premier League boss for trophies won Every time Ally McCoist lost it on air in 2019, including funny XI reactions Forbes list reveals how much Mayweather, Ronaldo and Messi earned this decade Son ban confirmed as Tottenham fail with appeal to overturn red card Dalot has shown his potential, but he’s clearly not good enough for United’s first-team right now BEST OF Mourinho made it clear he wanted to sign new central defenders in the summer, and his anger at United’s board over their refusal to support him financially has been backed by the club’s supporters.However, it appears Ed Woodward and co are ready to go along with Mourinho in the January transfer window, with the Portuguese allegedly handed £100million to spend on new players.But how could United line-up after the January transfer window if they splash the cash on a new defence? Ronaldo warned Lukaku how hard scoring goals in Serie A would be before Inter move huge blow Berahino hits back at b******t Johnson criticism – ‘I was in a dark place at Stoke’ It’s expected to be a busy January transfer window for Manchester United.Jose Mourinho is believed to have around £100million to spend as he attempts to guide the Red Devils back into the upper reaches of the Premier League table after a woeful start to the season, which sees the Old Trafford club already seven points behind the top four and trailing league leaders and local rivals Manchester City by a remarkable 12 points. Mourinho plans to return to two of his summer targets in January, though Toby Alderweireld is unlikely to be one of his options. Despite the Belgium international yet to pen a new contract at Tottenham, with his current deal expiring at the end of the season, Daniel Levy, the club’s chairman, is not expected to sanction the sale of a key player in the middle of the campaign – especially with the north Londoners fighting to finish in the top four and secure Champions League qualification.Raphael Varane, the Real Madrid centre-half, and Bayern Munich’s Jerome Boateng were also summer targets of United’s, but interest in the pair appears to have diminished in the months since.In place of this trio, Man United are looking at Napoli’s Kalidou Kouliably and Diego Godin, the Atletico Madrid captain.Mourinho is said to be ‘confident’ of signing 32-year-old Godin in January, and talks are believed to have already been held between United and the player’s representatives ahead of the club triggering the £20million release clause written in his Atleti contract. Only a few of Man United’s players have lived up to their potential this term, with Anthony Martial coming good over the past couple of months and Luke Shaw performing to an elite level since the campaign got under way in August.Questions have been raised over Romelu Lukaku’s quality at the highest level, while Alexis Sanchez’s rise to the top of the list titled ‘worst ever January signings’ is remarkably rapid.However, the biggest issues in Man United’s squad has been their defence, with the aforementioned Shaw outperforming the rest of the club’s back line combined.

DONEGAL WOMAN PRESENTED WITH GLOBAL HERO CANCER AWARD

first_imgA Co Donegal cancer survivor has been presented with a prestigious Global Hero of Hope Award.Suibhan Gillespie who received the award. Pic: Clive WassonSuibhan Gillespie was first told she had cancer back in 2001.But since her successful battle, Suibhan has dedicated a major part of her life in raising funds for research into the disease – including her involvement with Donegal’s Relay for Life. News of Suibhan’s award was made at a ceremony at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday.But modest Suibhan said she was simply accepting the award on all those who have battled the disease and those who have helped them on their journey.“I certainly do not consider myself a hero but I was happy to accept the award on behalf of the many people who have ben and continue to be on this journey.“That includes the families of those battling cancer as well as all the wonderful researchers and doctors and nurses who continue to work in the battle against cancer,” she said. Suibhan also paid tribute to the staff of the oncology unit at Letterkenny General Hospital as well as the Galway Research Unit.She said she wanted to remind people that the facilities for coping with cancer are much more advanced than they were in recent years.“Even a thing like the actual journey from Dublin for treatment has changed since I got my treatment. There wasn’t a motorway back then and we had to pass through all the towns like Slane and Ashbourne.“That has all changed as well as the advances in treatment of course and we will continue to battle against cancer,” she said. DONEGAL WOMAN PRESENTED WITH GLOBAL HERO CANCER AWARD was last modified: September 29th, 2014 by StephenShare 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:donegalIrish Cancer SocietyRelay for LifeSuibhan Gillespielast_img read more

Men’s Soccer Falls at Bradley, 1-0

first_imgThe Bulldogs created ample opportunities but couldn’t convert them into goals, as they put four shots on frame of their 15 overall.”Credit to Bradley, they competed well and were effective in their gameplan,” Smith said. “We had a better second half and created a number of chances but couldn’t execute. We lost our runner in the box and they tucked away their chance. It’s a soft goal from a defensive perspective — the game is won and lost in both boxes.” Evansville 10/9/2019 – 6 PM Live Stats Both sides traded periods of offensive control. The Braves applied pressure early with three shots on goal in the opening twenty minutes, but Drake goalkeeper Luke Anderson was a rock in net. Watch Live Preview Drake defenders twice made sensational efforts to clear shots off the line. Scott Misselhorn threw his body in front of the net in the 37th minute to chest a would-be goal out of harm’s way. PEORIA, Ill. – The Drake University men’s soccer team fell to Bradley, 1-0, on Homecoming Night in Peoria on Saturday. A goal by the Braves’ Cameron Strang in the 57th minute was the difference.”This is a difficult result to accept because we had enough quality and chances to win the game,” said Drake head coach Gareth Smith. Another tantalizing moment came in the 88th minute when Fred Frimpong threaded the needle with a diagonal cross through traffic, but the pass was inches ahead of Enzugusi, who couldn’t get a foot to it in the 6-yard box.”In the end, it’s simple,” Smith said. “They took their chance and we didn’t.” ESPN3 Anderson made a remarkable save in the 18th minute when he came off his line to close down a Bradley attacker in the box, shutting off the angle and parrying away the near-post attempt.”The first half was a back-and-forth affair with lots of transition,” Smith said. “We needed to be better positioned to help not only compete for the first contact but secure the second contact so we could get a hold of possession and settle the game down.”Erik Fahner put Drake’s first shot on goal in the 32nd minute, and Istvan Wilhelms produced the Bulldogs’ best strike of the night a minute later with a screamer toward the upper-right corner that forced a highlight-reel save from Bradley goalkeeper Nathan Wisbey. Full Schedule Roster In the 77th minute, Bradan Allen worked back to head away a shot that had snuck through Drake’s defense. Moments later, Allen deflected out of bounds a rocket off the foot of Bradley’s Gerit Wintermeyer. Both plays were vital in keeping Drake in the match. Next Game: Drake came close on many tries but couldn’t quite seal the deal. Leroy Enzugusi collected a dangerous low cross in the 80th minute and worked away from the goal, luring Wisbey off his line. Enzugusi laid it back to Cole Poppen at the top of the box, but Poppen’s shot missed high. Drake (5-5, 2-2 MVC) hosts Evansville at Cownie Soccer Complex at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 9. Print Friendly Version Bradley earned a corner in the early stages of the second half after a shot by Jha’Lon Johnson was deflected out of bounds. Johnson sent in the set piece delivery to the far post, Roman Schindler headed it to the top of the 6-yard box, and Strang redirected it into the top-left corner for the lone goal of the game. Johnson and Schindler were credited with assists.last_img read more

Christmas dates

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Shelly Detwiler, berry farmer and dieticianLet’s talk dates. Not a romantic date or dates on a calendar but the fruit, dates. Dates in Middle Eastern cultures have been a part of their daily diets and religious holiday treats for centuries — in the U.S. not so much. It wasn’t until the early 1900s that dates were introduced to this country. Per nationalgeographic.com, early movies such as The Sheik and One Hundred and One Arabian Nights helped begin our love affair with dates. Hollywood may have began the date craze but let’s face it, it’s all about the marketing! We fell in love with the mystery, the romanticism of clusters of dates hanging from palm trees surrounded by scantily clad women.My dad loves dates and therefore my mom has always made date treats such as date nut pudding. Christmas wouldn’t be complete without her date nut goodies. My mom says it’s so much easier to find dates now than “in the olden’ days.” Local demand from the rise in the Muslim population, improved food logistics and grocery expansions have also helped their availability year-round.Dates are commonly associated with the Christmas holiday. Sometimes seen overflowing in bowls and baskets. In recent years, the popularity of dates has gone off the charts, moving from the Middle Eastern theme to a more nutritional emphasis. Dates are packed full of fiber, potassium and antioxidants. They are used in bars to provide both energy and natural sweetness to athletes from the backyard to professionals. Dates can be used in baked goods to provide sweetness from a complex natural sugar rather than processed sugars. If you know of anyone on a paleo diet, they are allowed dates for this very reason. Deglet noor dates are the most common dates. They are dried and used in baked goods. Medjool dates are a fresh large, fat date packed with sweetness enjoyed alone or in new recipes from chefs around the world.Agriculturally speaking, dates are very interesting. They grow in large clusters below fronds on a date palm tree in warm regions. Egypt, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Iraq produce over 4.62 million metric tons of dates! The Deglet noor and Medjool varieties were brought to the U.S. in the early 20th century from Morocco. Southern California produces most of the 33,000 tons of dates grown in this country. Amazingly enough, all the Medjool dates can be traced back to the original oasis in Morocco!It’s the Christmas season — a time of good cheer and treats a plenty. Add some chopped dates to salads, fruit bowls or enjoy a Medjool date as a sweet treat at the end of your meal. Try a new recipe below and enjoy nature’s candy this Christmas season.
