Kidd Hopes For Pierce Comeback

first_imgNEW YORK — Jason Kidd never appears worries about anything, certainly not about someone like Paul Pierce.Even if Pierce’s matchup was completely one-sided in Toronto’s favor in Game 2.Pierce nearly had as many fouls as points. He couldn’t get his shot to fall, couldn’t keep his man off the boards, and the Raptors targeted the Pierce matchup as one they could exploit.Yet Kidd is not concerned as his Brooklyn Nets prepare to host the Raptors in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference first-round series April 25.“Paul’s doing every right. The game of basketball is about making shots and sometimes you make them and sometimes you don’t. So Paul, I think, has had two good games,” Kidd said on a conference call.Pierce was sharp down the stretch in helping the Nets win the opener, but couldn’t get it going April 22 in Toronto’s 100-95 victory. He shot 2-for-11 and finished with seven points and six rebounds.Worse for the Nets, the Raptors took of advantage of their size against a Nets team that plays Pierce as an undersized power forward. Toronto outrebounded Brooklyn 52-30, with power forwards Amir Johnson and Patrick Patterson combining for 28 points and 18 rebounds while making 13 of 19 shots.Johnson said after the game that with Pierce playing the 4 spot, Raptors coach Dwane Casey told him to go to the glass every time on offense and defense.“We understand we’re a more athletic team than them. For us to get to the glass every single opportunity we have that presents itself is what we need to do,” Patterson said. “There shouldn’t be a game in this series where we get outrebounded by them.”The Nets went to the small-ball lineup after center Brook Lopez was lost for the season with a broken foot in December, and it helped them turn around their season. With Pierce’s outside shooting ability, it creates a matchup problem for bigger defenders, who usually prefer to play closer to the basket.But it creates a different set of problems for the Nets against aggressive bigs like Toronto’s, who quickly put Pierce into foul trouble that prevented him from ever getting into a rhythm.Yet if he made either of the two 3-point attempts that bounced out in the final 25 seconds, the Nets might have come home with a 2-0 lead, and Kidd preferred to focus on that.“No matter what he shot in the last game, he had great looks and they just went in and out, and so there’s nothing in the sense of changing what Paul’s going to do,” Kidd said of Pierce, the 2008 NBA Finals MVP. “He’s a very smart player, he understands time and situation and … there’s no concern.”Pierce said after the game the Nets were soft when it came to their rebounding, and teammates agreed they had to do a better job as a team of helping out on the boards.But that was far from Brooklyn’s only problem in Game 2. All-Star guard DeMar DeRozan bounced back from his shaky opener with 30 points and carried Toronto down the stretch, while center Jonas Valanciunas came up with 15 points and 14 rebounds.It gave the impression that the younger Raptors, who won the Atlantic Division, might have too many answers for the Nets.“Toronto is going to win this series,” TNT analyst Charles Barkley said afterward. “I have not seen anything these first two games that makes me see anything different.”The Raptors will still need to win at least one in Brooklyn. They are a good road team, with a 22-19 record that matched Miami and Washington for best in the East.“It’s a new beginning, a new frontier, a new experience,” Casey said of going on the road now. “The only way you’re going to get it is to go through it. I have faith in our guys and confidence in our guys that we’re going to go in there as a group bonded together and fight together.”___By Brian Mahoney, AP Basketball Writer. AP freelance writer Ian Harrison in Toronto contributed to this report.TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

World Cup semi-final defeat my biggest disappointment in last 2 years: Ravi Shastri

first_imgWorld Cup semi-final defeat my biggest disappointment in last 2 years: Ravi ShastriRavi Shastri, who has been reappointed as Team India head coach, also said his primary focus will be on the World Test Championships and the 2 T20 World Cups in the next 2 years of his stint.advertisement India Today Web Desk New DelhiAugust 18, 2019UPDATED: August 18, 2019 11:09 IST Ravi Shastri will continue as head coach of Team India till November 2021 (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSWe were right there and then it all slipped away: Ravi Shastri on World Cup exitIndia failed to chase 240 in the semi-final vs New ZealandShastri said focus will be on World Test Championships and T20 World Cups in next 2 yearsIndia head coach Ravi Shastri has conceded that the semi-final defeat to New Zealand at World Cup 2019 was the biggest disappointment of his coaching stint in the last 2 years.India had entered World Cup 2019 as pre-tournament favourites. Virat Kohli’s team had all the ingredients to end India’s 8-year-long title drought and expectations hit the roof when India started the tournament in a dominant fashion.The quadrennial tournament was also looked at as an important test for Virat Kohli-Ravi Shastri combination. Captain Kohli had established a close working relationship with Shastri and the duo were able to produce some outstanding results over the last 2 years. While a historic Test series win in Australia was the highlight, Team India’s performances on the road improved drastically.India topped the group-stage table at World Cup 2019 after only one loss to England. However, India crashed out after failing to chase a 240-run target in a rain-affected semi-final in Manchester. The top-order was blown away by New Zealand pacers who removed Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul for 1 each.Stressing that the defeat was a tough pill to swallow, Ravi Shastri pointed out that 30 minutes of poor cricket made a huge impact.”I’ll say the World Cup semifinal [biggest disappointment]. Those 30 minutes changed everything. We were right there and then it all slipped away. We played some very good cricket through the tournament. We won more matches than any other team, topped the table and that spoke of our dominance. But then, that’s sport. One bad day, one bad session and it wasn’t ours to go any further,” Ravi Shastri told The Times of India.advertisementDespite India not going the distance at World Cup 2019, Ravi Shastri was reappointed as the head coach last week. Shastri pipped the likes of Mike Hesson and Tom Moody in interviews conducted by Kapil Dev-led Cricket Advistory Committee.Ravi Shastri has been handed a 2-year contract and he will be working with the team till the T20 World Cup in November, 2021.India, under Ravi Shastri, also enter an imporant phase as they begin their World Test Championships with a 2-Test series in West Indies from August 22.Stressing that the 3 ICC tournaments will be his primary focus, Ravi Shastri added: “here are two ICC T20 tournaments over the next two years, in 2020 and 2021. The Test championship cycle has begun, so that becomes top priority.”We have a splendid Test side that’s stayed at the top of the rankings and needs to keep up that good work. In T20Is, we need to take a fresh perspective and consolidate on the fabulous talent we have.”Also Read | Want to thank the CAC for showing faith in me: Ravi Shastri after reappointment as India coachAlso Read | India vs West Indies A: Cheteshwar Pujara hits hundred, Rohit Sharma shines on Day 1Also See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter for Sports news, scores and updates.Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

Immersive offers Cat 795F AC simulator conversion kit

first_imgImmersive Technologies has released the Cat 795F AC Mining Truck Conversion Kit for the its open-pit mine simulators, including the PRO3. Karen Joseph, Product Manager said: “This project has been driven as part of Immersive Technologies’ collaboration with Caterpillar, which focused on releasing training simulators alongside or shortly after Caterpillar’s release date of the model simulated. We are excited that the first 795F AC Conversion Kit will be shipped to a Cat dealer to aid in the rollout and delivery of operator training for the Cat 795F AC.”The Cat 795F AC aims to fills the gap between the 793F and 797F mechanical-drive trucks, with Caterpillar looking to provide a Cat truck for every customer preference. Available in electric drive only, it has a payload of 345 short tons. The truck has an integrated AC-drive system that has been developed by Caterpillar and is fully supported by Caterpillar and Cat dealers. Under an agreement between Caterpillar and Immersive Technologies, Immersive Technologies is exclusively provided with confidential machine technical information and data that is necessary to simulate Cat machines. This proprietary information is not available or accessible to any other advanced simulator vendor.Immersive states: “Extensive collaboration directly with Caterpillar engineers in the development of the 795F AC Conversion Kit has facilitated a high level of accuracy and training effectiveness, as required by operations that are seeking more effective management of operator availability and risk. As an example, the high level of fidelity inherent in the 795F AC Conversion Kit, is evidenced by the utilisation of the instrumentation panel and Advisor display from the real truck, using both hardware and software supplied by Caterpillar. Furthermore, simulated machine behaviors experienced during the execution of new safe operating procedures, such as starting on an incline and responding to new machine monitoring system warnings, are meticulously modelled and simulated as per the real machine.”The correct operating procedures are tightly integrated with an extensive learning system within the PRO3, which Immersive states has been repeatedly demonstrated via in-field measurement to provide rapid, correct and effective learning and assessment.last_img read more

Funding big issue in Hockinson school race

first_imgBoth candidates for Position No. 1 on the Hockinson School District board see the district facing a big challenge as it faces uncertainty surrounding the McCleary decision.“There is not a lot I can do personally to deal with this, but I will advocate for patience,” Steve Nylund, chairman of the school board who is seeking re-election, wrote in an email “Community trust is critical for a school district, so it is important that we be cautious until things settle down and we have a clearer picture.”Kirk Jensen, the other candidate for the seat, wrote that district officials need to be upfront with parents about how the state’s accountability system is changing due to the Every Student Succeeds Act, a successor to No Child Left Behind.“(The Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction) has stated that there will be less reliance on high-stakes state assessments as a measurement for schools,” Jensen wrote. “At the same time, districts will still be held accountable for student growth, graduation rates and school quality indicators. This will require metrics for the district, and reviews of progress towards those metrics. Where progress is not sufficient, the district needs to revise its plan to make improvements.”There has been talk in the district this year about funding a new, main athletic field at Hockinson High School. Residents in the district voted down a capital project levy in February to fund replacing the field with synthetic turf, with 59.4 percent of the vote going against the measure.last_img read more

House committee divided over Disys Enosis proposal

first_imgThe House education committee chairman said on Wednesday that a ruling Disy amendment putting the education minister in control of issues such as whether schools should commemorate the 1950 Enosis (union with Greece) referendum was not a matter of priority.Disy had tabled the amendment in the wake of last month’s controversial parliamentary vote that public schools should mark the 1950 referendum.The chairman, Disy MP Kyriacos Hadjiyiannis, was equally downbeat over proposals from Diko, Citizens Alliance, and far right Elam about the inclusion of Turkish Cypriot literature on the curriculum.“We are not abolishing, when we should have, particular bank holidays or some other two-period, three-period celebrations,” he said. “We are studying all these at present, looking at all the aspects based on our initial law proposal … We will leave it open for consultation and when we are ready, we will see the committee programme, and will discuss the proposal.”It could go to plenum if they manage to garner a majority, he added.Replying to a question, Hadjiyiannis said the Disy proposal and those by Diko, the Alliance, and Elam concerning Turkish Cypriot literature, were not priority issues.Following an article in daily Politis on Tuesday that the issue concerning Turkish Cypriot literature could further harm relations between the two communities following the freeze in reunification talks after parliament approved Elam’s proposal to introduce a commemoration of the Enosis referendum, Akel said it did not back the move.Akel MP Giorgos Georgiou said Disy was regressing “and moving on dangerous nationalist paths”.The MP said Disy held the committee chair and had cosigned or consented to the submission of subjects that did not serve the country’s proclaimed political goals.“First, they imposed compulsory teaching of ancient Greek and religious studies despite the education minister’s different intention and against international and European treaties for the protection of the rights of children,” Georgiou said.After that, they submitted for discussion the inclusion of Turkish Cypriot literature in the syllabus.Diko MP Panicos Leonidou, who had backed registering the issue along with Elam and the Citizens Alliance, said on Wednesday that he did so after receiving many complaints from parents who were against their children being taught Turkish Cypriots literature.“My intention was not imposing censorship or having them removed, nor to cause tension in our relations with the Turkish Cypriots,” Leonidou said.On the contrary, he said, just as students read international and European literature, they should also read Turkish Cypriot, even Turkish literary texts.His aim, he said, was to make sure that the texts of Turkish Cypriot authors taught in schools, “do not create racism, and problems between the two communities”.“If this would cause more damage to the talks, of course, we will have to recall the discussion and have a private meeting with the minister instead for a briefing,” he said. You May LikeHeart Failure Treatment | Search AdsThe Early Signs Of Heart Failure.

Stunning Italian sailing ship to dock at Larnaca

first_imgThe Italian navy has chosen Larnaca as one of the ports of call for its stunning sailing ship Palinuro which trains cadets of the Italian navy’s Academy of Taranto.A press release issued on Monday by the Italian embassy says that from August 28 until September 1, Cypriots will have the chance to visit one of the Italian navy’s most famous ships, built in 1934 and used as a training vessel since 1955 for hundreds of Italian cadets that started their careers on her decks, learning the basics of seamanship.The training campaign is an essential activity in the cadets’ education, complementing the academic side of their studies.Impeccably maintained in its original grandeur, Palinuro is part of an elite club of vintage ships. During its many decades in operation, she has sailed more than 300.000 nautical miles through most major ports of the Mediterranean and Northern Europe. The latest chapter in her rich history is the meeting she recently hosted between the Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni, French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.The impressive ship has three masts over 35 metres tall; 1000 sq metres of sail plan, with 15 sails of various types (square sails, mainsails, gaff-topsail, staysails, jibs), spanning three decks.Palinuro’s presence in Cyprus is also a testimony to the growing relations between Italy and Cyprus in the defence sector, the embassy said, following the visit to Nicosia of the Italian Minister of Defence Roberta Pinotti in July.Visitors can visit the ship at Larnaκa Port, during the following hours:– 29 August: between 10.00 to 12.00 and 16.00 to 17.30.– 30 August: between 10.00 to 12.00 and 16.00 to 19.00– 31 August: between 10.00 to 12.00 and 16.00 to 19.00The Palinuro will leave Cyprus on September 1, setting sail for Rhodes before returning to Italy.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
