Blazers look to shake off last season’s disappointing end

first_imgTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown Portland Trail Blazers’ Damian Lillard poses for a photo during media day in Portland, Ore., Monday, Sept. 24, 2017. The Trail Blazers head into fall camp still stinging from last season’s first-round playoff sweep by New Orleans. Portland returns the nucleus of the team _ Lillard, CJ McCollum and Jusuf Nurkic _ that went 49-33 last season. (AP Photo/Steve Dykes)PORTLAND, Ore. — The Trail Blazers head into fall camp still stinging from last season’s first-round playoff sweep by New Orleans.The trick now is not to overcorrect.ADVERTISEMENT Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines? Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil MOST READ CONTINUITY: The Blazers have been an incredibly steady team over the past three years. Two seasons ago, they returned 10 players, last year it was 12 and this season it’s 11, including the starting lineup.“The disappointing thing for me is that the last two years we haven’t gotten off to good starts. In January, we’re below .500. So it hasn’t manifested itself into early-season success, which you would think that having that carryover, it would,” Stotts said. “We don’t have that luxury this year.”PORTLAND’S CURRY: One of the additions this summer was guard Seth Curry, who was signed to a two-year deal. The 6-foot-2 younger brother of Steph Curry didn’t play last season because of a leg injury, but the season before he averaged 12.8 points and 2.7 assists in 70 games with the Dallas Mavericks.ED’S EXIT: The biggest absence this year is undoubtedly Ed Davis, who was effective off the bench and popular in the locker room. Davis averaged 5.3 points and 7.4 rebounds for Portland last season. A free agent, Davis went to the Brooklyn Nets. Portland also lost reserves Shabazz Napier and Pat Connaughton.PROTEST: Outside the Moda Center on Monday a group of demonstrators displayed companion banners that read “Blazers Yes” and “Warcrimes No.” The signs were part of an ongoing protest of the team’s relationship with Leupold & Stevens, an Oregon-based company that manufactures rifle scopes and binoculars. The protest targets the company’s deal in 2017 to supply scopes for the ground arm of the Israel Defense Forces. The company sponsors a “Hometown Hero” award at each home game.OPENING NIGHT: Portland’s opening night game is set for Oct. 18 against LeBron James and his new team, the Los Angeles Lakers.“I think it’s similar to when he came back to Cleveland, it takes time,” Lillard said. “Anytime you bring guys in and they join a young team, a new team, I think it just takes time to gel, being on the floor together, learning each other, learning how to win together. So I think it’s good that we get them early.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next LATEST STORIES Japeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plum Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college Gov’t to employ 6,000 displaced by Taal Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

A lot went into that. .. It didn’t make up for it (the sweep) but it’s important that you acknowledge those other things.”No sixth seed had ever swept a No. 3 in a best-of-seven series.McCollum is focused on the future.“You have to move on from it but it sticks in the back of your mind. It’s healthy to be upset. It’s healthy to go through that process of figuring out what you could have done better and watching film,” McCollum said. “And then you have to remove yourself from it because it’s the past.”ADVERTISEMENT Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Allen Durham still determined to help Meralco win 1st PBA title “You run the risk of overreacting to defeats, and maybe being blinded by victories,” coach Terry Stotts said. “I think it’s important that we learn from it, I don’t want our team to forget about it. I don’t want our team to forget about the feeling we had, not just after the series was over, but what we had to live through over the summer, and keep that edge. Hopefully, we use it as a learning experience.”Portland returns the nucleus — Damian Lillard, CJ McCollum and Jusuf Nurkic — of a team that went 49-33 last season. Apart from the early postseason exit, it was mostly considered a success.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissBoosted by a 13-game winning streak that started with a victory over the Golden State Warriors just before the All-Star break, the Blazers secured the third seed in the Western Conference.

Brightest All-Star: Kobe

first_imgIn 2002, Bryant was mercilessly booed by fans in his hometown of Philadelphia. They jeered him every time he touched the ball, then hissed when he was announced as the game’s MVP. But on this night, the city that loves its showmen almost more than it loves neon lights or $3.99 buffets embraced Bryant as its favorite son. “It’s humbling. As a player you want to feel appreciated for what we do and to hear the chants, it makes you feel good,” Bryant said. “It’s very, very humbling. And it makes you feel very good.” Generally, the hometown All-Star has a head start on winning the game’s MVP award. Las Vegas is the only non-NBA city ever to host an All-Star game. That left Phoenix’s Shawn Marion, a UNLV product, and Bryant, because Southern Nevada is Lakers country, as the two front-runners for the MVP award. Marion finished with 18points, and teammate Amare Stoudemire had 29, but Bryant was a clear-cut winner because of his playmaking (six assists) and aggressiveness in attacking the rim. Sunday evening, Kobe Bryant won over the glitziest – and definitely the strangest – crowd ever to watch an NBA All-Star Game, as he had 31points, six assists and sixsteals to earn MVP honors in the West’s 153-132 victory over the East at the Thomas & Mack Center. By the end of the game, a West runaway from start to finish, the crowd began chanting Bryant’s name and calling for him to be named MVP. It was a far different scene than the last time Bryant took home the MVP trophy from an All-Star game. LAS VEGAS – At home, with the adoring Staples Center crowd, the “MVP” chants have pretty much become a nightly ritual for Kobe Bryant. Then he heard the same cheers in Boston, a place that has always saved a special sort of venom for the Lakers. center_img At times, he seemed to be oneof the few players who really cared about winning. “You could tell early on that he was being aggressive,” Miami’s Dwyane Wade said. “You can always tell what guys have that mentality that night to go for the MVP by how aggressive they are with shooting the ball.” Bryant took 24 shots, the most of any player. Stoudemire (22) and LeBron James (20) were the only players to take nearly as many. With the exception of James (28 points) and Orlando’s Dwight Howard (20 points, 12rebounds), most of the East seemed lethargic after a weekend in Vegas. Even Bryant acknowledged being a bit tired from all the excitement this weekend. “Before tonight’s game I was as tired as they were,” Bryant said. “But we had lost two times in a row to the East, so we wanted to come out and win this game.” For his part, Miami’s Shaquille O’Neal did most of his entertaining in the in-game video presentations, singing a not-too-bad “Viva Las Vegas” and passionately shouting a line from “Braveheart” as part of a trivia contest. O’Neal played just 17 minutes, even volunteering some of his playing time to Dwight Howard, but still had 10 points and six rebounds. But the star of this evening was his former running mate in Los Angeles. “I just feel blessed and fortunate to be able to come out tonight and put on a really good show,” Bryant said. No place appreciates that more than Vegas. ramona.shelburne@ dailynews.com (818) 713-3617 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Holy Cross’ expansion

first_imgMission Hills Good idea gone wrong Re “Paid too much” (March 29): I think this would be a great idea if we did this to the politicians who earn too much. We could fire them and rehire them at minimum wage. Wouldn’t this save us taxpayers millions of dollars? But, then again, we would lose all their “expertise.” I think I’ll take my chances. – Erin Ziliak Re “Hospital expansion plan stalls in panel” (March 29): The overwhelming need, the sense of urgency and the tremendous community benefit for the expansion of Providence Holy Cross Medical Center require greater emphasis. As a physician in Mission Hills, I see this hospital strain to serve its ever-enlarging patient base. Despite this, every nurse, physician, other staff member and the hospital perform admirably in delivering high-quality medicine unmatched by most other hospitals. Yet, there are still consequences. Notably, patients often most in need of this hospital’s services may be diverted to other, more-distant, less-equipped hospitals because the emergency room and hospital are absolutely full and must close access in order to care for the patients already there. Unnecessary delays in starting this construction will only perpetuate this problematic situation, making Providence Holy Cross unavailable to members of its own community. – Michael Nelson, M.D. Sylmar The coming storm Re “Paid too much” (March 29): A storm of betrayal is coming; the first vicious gust of this new calamity is named Circuit City. What epitomizes betrayal better than being dismissed without afterthought after committing to and loyally abiding by what you perceived to be a mutual promise of trust and integrity? “Wait a minute,” you might say. “I’m being fired so my employer can hire others for less money or experience?” It’s moments like these that reveal the true nature of big-business officials. Have no illusions; be not deceived by smiles and affable gestures. It’s a pretense with a purpose. Their god is called “dollar,” and people are their sacrifice. Beyond this there is nothing. – Michael E. White Burbank Narrow focus Re “L.A. story: richer and poorer” (April 2): I read with amazement your analysis of the subject of income gap that was made between two Hispanics. There was no mention of their education, incentives, finances, whether they were in L.A. legally or illegally, if they spoke English or what their backgrounds were – i.e., first-generation or second-generation. Most of all, why only Hispanics when there are many other ethnic groups around? – Joe McMillin West Hills A donor state Re “All together now” (Our Opinions, March 30): Since California is a donor state, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and other public officials should be commended for representing our region’s infrastructure needs on Capitol Hill. For each dollar we pay in federal taxes, California receives back only 79 cents in federal funding. The trend has not improved in 20 years, so taxpayers should be helping the mayor’s efforts with phone calls of their own to our congressional delegation, urging members to do more of what other states’ delegations do when it comes to securing federal funds for their states: They put partisan politics aside and work closely to bring back their fair share. The federal appropriations process has hardly begun, but in the end Los Angeles County will be better off in part because of the mayor’s efforts in Washington, D.C. – Brendan L. Huffman President Valley Industry & Commerce Association The way people live Re “Cardinal against `culture of death”‘ (April 3): It would be more appropriate for Cardinal Mahony to be as passionate about the way people live as he is passionate about the way people die. The enormous amount of money spent on that new cathedral in downtown L.A. should have been spent to give proper shelter and comfort to the very-much-alive homeless men, women and children populating this city. Perhaps Mahony should find the time to read and try to understand what Jesus preached 2,000 years ago. – Dante F. Rochetti West Hills Taking the limelight Re “Fire blackens 150 hilly acres; teens arrested” (March 29): I knew it was only a matter of time before the photo-happy mayor would call a news conference and show up at the Barham Fire. Instead of quietly visiting the location without getting in the way, he had to have the microphones and cameras set up so he could take credit for the wonderful job the city was doing to fight the fire. The real heroes were the firefighters, not the mayor, but he always shows up to tell us what a great job he is doing. The final blow was when he repeated his speech in Spanish. Instead, he should encourage his people to learn English. What gall this man has. – Ellen Burns Burbank Do we have no say? Re “Imminent domain” (March 29) about the proposed razing of 22 homes in Van Nuys for a school: Do taxpaying citizens have no say in anything that the Los Angeles Unified School District does? How about the razing of Granada Hills Hospital, which no one wanted and yet it happened, to build yet another high school for children of illegal immigrants? Think about the density of people at Devonshire and Balboa. Does anyone care about that neighborhood and the traffic it will create? No wonder everyone is headed to Austin, Texas. Can this California native be far behind? – Gloria J. Aguilar Northridge Mexican trucks Re “America shouldn’t fear Mexican trucks” (Their Opinions, March 28): I believe the anticipated problem is with the Mexican tractors and drivers, not the trailers. Why is drayage transfer necessary? I don’t see why the trailer coming from the south can’t be disconnected from the Mexican tractor and immediately connected to the U.S. tractor. Then, after an inspection of the contents for illegal drugs, weapons and weight limitation, let the trailer be allowed to continue north with the American driver in charge. The safety issue would seem to me to be resolved by the assumed superior mechanical condition and pollution control on the U.S. equipment, versus the Mexican, and the superior experience/safety level of the U.S. licensed drivers over foreigners. A reasonably smooth operation could be expected. – Stuart H. Berg Burbank Parks vs. jobs Re “Kiss 200 good jobs goodbye” (April 1): Where is Councilman Ed Reyes’ head? Why would any responsible person turn down a business and endorse a park? Businesses are leaving L.A. and California in droves. I lost my job last May. My department was moved to Seattle. I was not alone. I think there were about a thousand jobs moved. Here we have a company that is willing to pay not minimum wages, but good wages. I was making less than the lowest amount that was stated in the article. Businesses pay taxes. Do parks? We do need parks but at whose expense? This is all wrong. – Patricia Meiner Canoga Park McCain’s vision Re “Iraqis don’t see same markets as McCain” (April 3): When John McCain says it is safe to walk down some streets in Baghdad, he reminds me of the crazy grandpa at Thanksgiving dinner. Top military commanders won’t leave the Green Zone without a platoon. Are you kidding me? McCain should go back to Arizona or, better yet, go to Crawford, Texas, and run the bunkhouse on King George’s ranch. – Jerry Pennington Van Nuys160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

DDTV: Dungloe girl comes home and surprises sister on her prom night!

first_imgNatasha McGee from Dungloe was all dolled up to attend the Rosses Community School prom on Thursday evening when her sister Mel popped out from behind her bedroom door after not seeing her for three months! Mel McGee from Dungloe has been studying in Glasgow and hasn’t been able to make it home in over three months. Mel shares a very close relationship with her sister Natasha, and they facetime every single night. Mel decided to surprise Natasha on her prom night by coming home – without her knowledge! Speaking to Donegal Daily, Mel said; “I was devastated thinking that I couldn’t be there for her prom, I just started a new job as well so I definitely didn’t think I’d be able to get off.”“Dad is also working away and wasn’t able to make it. So a few weeks ago I explained to my new boss my situation and he was so nice and said to take a few days off. I booked flights and told mum to not open her mouth. All of our family were in on it to keep her thinking that nothing was going on.”“Tasha’s best friend Mikaela was the best person to enlist with the secret and she planned the whole video and where it would happen! It really wouldn’t have been possible without her help!”“I’m so glad we did it cause she was so shocked and happy! She was just delighted, she kept saying ‘I can’t believe you’re here’.” DDTV: Dungloe girl comes home and surprises sister on her prom night! was last modified: October 15th, 2016 by Elaine McCalligShare 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:debsdungloeGlasgowPromrosses community schoolSisterSurpriselast_img read more
