You know, it will take a long time to see the good that comes from that. I don’t really know if I have the head space right now to think about all that.“It means a lot that people received that all well and commented.

Coach Tyronn Lue wanted him back with the first group for the playoffs, but couldn’t because of the foot injury so Rodney Hood started Game 1.It’s possible Korver could start Game 2, with Lue considering a lineup change. Lue hinted he used what he thinks is his best lineup only for a brief stretch on Sunday “when Kyle was out there for three minutes.”The Cavs need his shooting, and Korver wants to deliver.There’s another game to play, some time to clear his mind and maybe for some 3-pointers to fall.“I tried that the other night and I got taken out real quick,” he said with a smile. “It will be good. Hopefully there will be some opportunity for me tomorrow.” FILE – In this Jan. 20, 2018, file photo, Cleveland Cavaliers’ Kyle Korver drives against the Oklahoma City Thunder in the first half of an NBA basketball game, in Cleveland.

As he tries to focus on basketball, Cleveland’s forward is grieving from the recent tragic death of his youngest brother, Kirk, who died at 27. Korver has been overwhelmed by the support he has received from the NBA community as he grapples with personal emotions that have made it tough to focus on his job.

Is that good? I don’t think that’s good,” he said. “I feel like I’m trying to go through all the emotions and stages and waves that people tell me about.

US sanctions force Nike to drop Iran boot deal

first_img0Shares0000Members of Iran’s World Cup team train outside Moscow © AFP / Alexander NEMENOVNEW YORK, United States, Jun 11 – US sporting goods giant Nike confirmed Monday it had stopped supplying Iran’s football team with boots ahead of the World Cup due to sanctions.A statement from Nike said the company was forbidden from supplying kit to the Iranian team as it prepares for its opening World Cup game. “US sanctions mean that, as a US company, Nike cannot supply shoes to players in the Iranian National team at this time,” Nike said.“Sanctions applicable to NIKE have been in place for many years and are enforceable by law.”An ESPN report from Moscow said the Nike decision had left Iranian football officials baffled, noting that the US company had supplied the team at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil when similar sanctions were in effect.Iran coach Carlos Queiroz expressed frustration at the decision.“Players get used to their sports equipment, and it’s not right to change them a week before such important matches,” ESPN quoted Queiroz as saying.The ESPN report said Iran’s players had responded to the decision by asking non-Iranian players on their club teams to loan them boots, while others had bought their own from stores.The Nike moves comes at a time of tense relations between Washington and Tehran, with President Donald Trump last month pulling out of the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement and re-imposing sanctions it had previously waived.Iran kick off their World Cup campaign on Friday with a Group B clash against Morocco.Queiroz’s side also face Spain and Portugal in the first phase.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

GAA: FOUR MASTERS 0-06, KILLYBEGS 0-04

first_imgFour Masters 0-06Killybegs 0-04  Four Masters continued their unbeaten start to the league by taking 2 valuable points against newly promoted Killybegson Friday evening. Scores were at a premium and this was a tough battle with both defences giving up little in terms of scoring opportunities. The fact that Four Masters played the final 25 minutes with 14 men made the home side deserving winners on the night. Brendan McGuire opened the scoring before Luke Keaney equalised on 7 minutes. Conor McDaid and McGuire then exchanged frees before McDaid slotted again to give the home side a 0-03 to 0-02 half-time lead.  The second half was just 5 minutes old when Luke Keaney and Pauric Gallagher tangled and referee Mickey Mulhern saw fit to send the Four Masters man for an early shower. Once again, the side with the extra man struggled to capitalise on the advantage and Four Masters took over in terms of possession. Conor McDaid scored a fine point off his left side to extend the home lead but Ronan Boyle pulled one back for the fishermen. The game nearly boiled over on a few occasions during the second half but Raymie McGroary settled the Four Masters nerves with a well taken point from play on 45 minutes. Brendan McGuire with another free pulled it back to one but a foul on Conor McDaid was converted by himself to give a final score of 0-06 to 0-04 to Four Masters. Four Masters – Paul Durcan, Jamie McCrea, Barry Farragher, Danny McGarrigle, Sean O’Kennedy, Barry Dunnion, Conor Rooney, Barry Monaghan, Luke Keaney (0-01), Kevin McBrearty, Ryan Earley, Peadar Espey, Dylan Ward, Benny Byrne, Conor McDaid. (0-04). Subs used – Raymie McGroary (0-01), Ryan O’Donnell, John Boyle, Darren Walsh. Killybegs – M Mullin, D Conwell, K Fallon, D O’Donnell, D Breslin, C Mullin, J Noctor, E Murphy, M Smith, R Boyle, C Molloy, P Gallagher, B McGuire, B Boyle, C Tully. GAA: FOUR MASTERS 0-06, KILLYBEGS 0-04 was last modified: April 22nd, 2013 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:GAA: FOUR MASTERS 0-06KILLYBEGS 0-04last_img read more
