Nikola Jokic scores season-high 39, Nuggets beat Hornets

first_imgAPDENVER — Nikola Jokic’s impressive numbers took a backseat to his coast-to-coast dunk.Cheered by the sellout crowd for his jam, he was also teased by his teammates. To him, the slam was a thing of beauty.ADVERTISEMENT “You try to play him straight up, he’s going to do what he wants,” Hornets guard Malik Monk said. “We just tried to play him straight up and he just exploited us on that. He’s a great player. I can’t say anything bad about him.”At 26-11, the Nuggets are off to their best NBA start in franchise history. This also marks the latest they’ve been in first place in the conference since March 16, 1977.To think, they’re not even at full strength yet. But they’re getting closer. Millsap and Gary Harris, who had 17 points off the bench, are steadily getting back up to speed after returning from injuries. The team is still missing starter Will Barton.“It’s good to be healthy. It’s good to be whole,” Nuggets coach Michael Malone said. “Both (Millsap and Harris) showed they’re ready to take their starting jobs back. Me bringing them off the bench was trying to get them back into a game rhythm.”Kemba Walker had 20 points for the Hornets, who kicked off a six-game trip. Bismack Biyombo added a season-high 16 points.Trey Lyles and Millsap hit back-to-back 3-pointers early in the fourth quarter to give the Nuggets a 105-93 lead. Craig cemented the win with a dunk on a fast break with 1:50 remaining to extend the lead to 14.Denver scored 27 points off turnovers.“When you play hard, good things happen,” Harris said. “We have to continue to do that.”TIP-INSHornets: Biyombo was in the starting lineup with C Cody Zeller out after he had surgery to fix a broken right hand. … G Jeremy Lamb missed a second straight game with a strained right hamstring. “He’s progressing well,” coach James Borrego reported. … F Marvin Williams was called for a flagrant foul when he tried to prevent a layup by Craig in the second quarter. Is Luis Manzano planning to propose to Jessy Mendiola? “Poetry in motion,” the 7-footer said.Jokic scored a season-high 39 points and grabbed 12 rebounds, reserve Paul Millsap added 18 points and the Western Conference-leading Nuggets knocked off the Charlotte Hornets 123-110 on Saturday for their 10th straight home victory.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSUrgent reply from Philippine ‍football chiefSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionThat’s two straight games where Jokic’s now had a memorable dunk .“If I’m not tired and 100 percent sure I’m going to dunk it, I’m going to dunk,” Jokic explained. “But two points is two points — however you score.” LOOK: Joyce Pring goes public with engagement to Juancho Triviño SEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte Hotel management clarifies SEAG footballers’ kikiam breakfast issue PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games PLAY LIST 02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss MOST READ SEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completion Nuggets: Denver led Charlotte in points in the paint by a 64-48 margin. … Had a season-high 31 second-chance points. … Jokic’s 29 shot attempts were a season high.OH, BROTHERIt was a Hernangomez family reunion as Nuggets forward Juancho Hernangomez faced older brother Willy, who’s a center for the Hornets.

Rashford and Lukaku have ‘just clicked’

first_imgManchester United ‘It’s just clicked’ – Rashford relishing Lukaku partnership Joe Wright Last updated 2 years ago 20:10 8/9/2017 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) marcus rashford - cropped Getty Images Manchester United Premier League Romelu Lukaku Marcus Rashford Stoke City v Manchester United The teenage forward is encouraged by the natural understanding he has with his new £75 million Manchester United team-mate Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford feels he has struck up an immediate and strong partnership with team-mate Romelu Lukaku.The Belgium international has enjoyed an impressive start to his United career since his reported £75 million move from Everton, scoring three times in three Premier League appearances to help his side to nine points.Rom 3/1 to score 2+ Saturday Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘I’m getting better’ – Can Man Utd flop Fred save his Old Trafford career? Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Rashford set up Lukaku for the first goal on his Old Trafford debut in the 4-0 win against West Ham last month and has performed well in an attack that has looked formidable in the early part of the season.The England international is delighted with the way Lukaku has settled into the team and admitted to being flattered at being compared to Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole, who created a fearsome strike partnership in United’s treble-winning campaign of 1998-99.”It’s just clicked, we’ve got that understanding,” Rashford told MUTV. “We’d never met before his arrival and we didn’t know what each other were like, but when we got on the pitch together we just knew where each other was.”Hopefully we can keep growing the relationship more and more. Obviously, it’s only in the early stages, and the better we get at playing together, the better the results will be for the team.”Asked about the Yorke-Cole comparisons, he said: “It would be great if we could be like them. But the most important thing is for us to work for the team together.”Not a bad way for @RomeluLukaku9 to open his #MUFC account – but is this effort your Goal of the Month for August? https://t.co/FJBNcpjGpw pic.twitter.com/lpv4NrVtmF— Manchester United (@ManUtd) August 30, 2017United face Stoke City in their fourth Premier League game of the season on Saturday.

Jasprit Bumrah bowled one of the best spells ever in Australia: Javagal Srinath

first_img India Today Web Desk MelbourneDecember 28, 2018UPDATED: December 28, 2018 19:10 IST Jasprit Bumrah picked up a six-for to help India bowl out Australia for 151 in the first innings of the Boxing Day Test (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSJasprit Bumrah picked his third five-wicket haul in Tests this year on Friday in the third match vs Australia He has so far picked 45 wickets in his first year in Test cricketJavagal Srinath said Bumrah was unplayable against Australia on Day 3 at the MCGFormer India pacer Javagal Srinath lauded Jasprit Bumrah after his career-best 6 for 33 derailed Australia on the third day of the Boxing Day Test.Bumrah broke a 39-year-old Indian record for the most Test wickets in his debut year; he also became the only Asian bowler to take five-wicket hauls in South Africa, England and Australia in the same calendar year.After India declared their first innings at 443 for 7, the focus was on India’s bowlers on a pitch which has troubled batsmen with its variable bounce. Bumrah, like has done so often, stepped up and ripped apart Australia’s batting line-up with a clever mix of yorkers, bouncers and slower deliveries.Not surprisingly, Bumrah dominated cricket headlines on Friday and he found an admirer in Srinath, one of India’s finest pacers with 236 Test wickets.”This would definitely be one of the best spells bowled in Australia. That is what my opinion is. He was unplayable all the way through. It was not just one spell but every ball he bowled he looked terrific. The pace he generated was unbelievable and the line he bowled was too good. He has brought in more variety and he has truly showcased all varieties in fast bowling,” Srinath told MyNation.Bumrah has given India a massive advantage in the Test after Ricky Ponting questioned Cheteshwar Pujara’s slow strike rate during a gutsy hundred. Virat Kohli doffed his hat off to Bumrah who said the Indian domestic cricket was key to his superb performance in Test cricket this year.advertisement”… Yes, I have played in the IPL. But for Test match cricket, I always credit, first-class cricket. IPL is four overs but over there you have to continuously bowl. So first-class cricket has really helped shape my career, even in ODI cricket and Test matches,” Bumrah said in a video interview available on BCCI’s official website.Also Read | Jasprit Bumrah does what Waqar, Wasim and Vaas could not doAlso Read | Jasprit Bumrah reveals Rohit Sharma suggested slower ball to Shaun MarshAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
