Lue Says He Expects Shumpert To Play Vs Raptors; Guard Says He’s Not So Sure

first_imgIf Shumpert has to sit again, it will be J.R. Smith and Matthew Dellavedova earning extended minutes. Related TopicsCavsIman ShumpertTyronn Lue Matt Loede The Cavs are getting ready to take on the team that’s looking up at them in the standings for the best record in the East tonight, as they take on the 38-18 Toronto Raptors in Toronto.The Raptors are three games back of the Cavaliers, who come into action at 41-15 after a win on Wednesday over Charlotte at home.The team already has announced they will be without guard Mo Williams, who is staying back for the two weekend games to get treatment on his knee, and now it looks like the team may still be without guard Iman Shumpert.Shumpert, who has played in 31 games this season putting up 6.1 points per game, may have to sit as he continues to try and get back on the court with a shoulder issue that’s forced him to miss the last three games. Shump says that he’s not so sure that he’s going to be able to go, while coach Tyronn Lue says he thinks he will be able to go.Hmmmm….

NEOSI’s “Six Pack Of Random” – Indians, Cavs and More

first_img Related TopicsBrownsIndiansNFL Draft Welcome everyone to the first installment of Six Pack of Random. My name is Josh Jeffi and I am one of the host of Sports on Tap, which is a podcast that is part of the NEO Sports Insiders Network. Few things about me. I have a wife and three daughters. I enjoy pro wrestling, BBQ, and beer to the point where I make my own. And of course I am a sports fan, a die-hard Cleveland fan. So enough with introductions, what is Six Pack of Random? This will be a weekly column that will be posted every Friday and I will basically just give you my thoughts on six random topics. I know, groundbreaking stuff. So without further ado, please enjoy the first ever edition of Six Pack of Random.1. WrestleMania – I really enjoyed WrestleMania last Sunday. Like always, it was an outstanding spectacle. The matches themselves were Mania quality. You can tell every superstar upped their game for the show of shows. What I enjoy even more about WrestleMania is the Raw the following Monday. The crowd never disappoints and it’s a reset for storylines. To be honest, not too thrilled about Reigns vs Styles, but I will give it a chance. And please WWE, give Dolph Ziggler a championship. He is a great performer and constantly puts guys over.2. Cavs – I need the playoffs to get here…fast. This team is in “chill mode” right now and I’m ok with that. Admittedly this team is so annoying because of the drama but when I start to get really irritated, I just think of how it was without LBJ and how fun it is to be a title contender. I am really looking forward to see how a healthy, focused Cavs team will play in the playoffs. Until then, I will maybe watch 10 minutes of the remaining games and gear up for a long playoff run.3. Indians – I love the tribe this year. I am not going to give a prediction but if they can hit consistently to go along with the pitching, good things will happen. Now when it comes to the Dolans, I’m not as impressed. If the team is in contention, will they make a move? People, lets start going to the ballpark. Progressive Field is a great stadium and now it has even more renovations that are impressive. It is one of the best values in Pro Sports. Go to the ballpark and enjoy what I think will be a great team and season.4. Browns – I am going into 2016 with a clean slate. I was so detached from this team by the end of the 2015 season that I just needed a break. I really like what has beenm done so far. Hue Jackson is the confident and competent football guy that the organization has needed for some time. The team needs to rebuild the correct way. With the coach, the quarterback, and through the draft. They have the coach. Hopefully they will draft the QB and they need to hit with the other picks in the draft. I am in a total wait and see mode with this team, but I do like the direction they seem to be going. Disclaimer, I have felt the same way about the other regimes so I am not 100% on board. The Browns need to prove it. I know that will take atleast 2-3 years but it needs to be that way.5. MOCK DRAFT 1.0 – Since the draft is a few weeks away I figured I would do a top 5 mock. Why not, everyone has a mock. Right?Titans: Leremy Tunsil – If they keep the pick, they need to protect Marcus Mariotta. I can also see them going after Jalen Ramsey, who is a Nashville native.Browns: Jared Goff – He is Hue’s guy, in my opinion, and he is most ready to play. It makes no difference they signed RGIII. They need a QB of the future. If Goff is gone, Ramsey is the pickChargers: Jalen Ramsey – They get the best player in the DraftCowboys: Carson Wentz – It’s Jerry being Jerry. The surprise of the top 10. Bosa is also a possibility.Jaguars: Joey Bosa – The Jags take what many people feel is one of the top players in the draft.6. Driving – If you are driving in a car and somebody lets you out or through, please wave and thank them. It’s one of my biggest annoyances when somebody does not wave when I let them go or them them out.Please make sure you give our podcast, Sports on Tap, a listen and make sure you follow us on Twitter @SOTPodcast. Thanks for reading. See you next week with another six pack! CHEERS! Josh Jeffilast_img read more

REPORT: Northampton Saints 32-26 Bristol Rugby

first_imgJason Woodward led the way for Mark Tainton’s side with a 21-point haul – four penalties, two conversions and one of the tries of the season – while Mitch Eadie touched down early in the first half. But they couldn’t quite shift a powerful Saints side, who crossed four times through Tom Wood, Louis Picamoles, JJ Hanrahan and Mikey Haywood for a bonus-point win.What happened?The form of Jason Woodward and Tom Varndell has been key to Bristol’s recent revival and the pair picked up where they had left off at Sale last week in the opening minutes, as Woodward glided outside his man and into the Saints’ 22 – but his offload was marginally behind the winger, who was shunted into touch.But the move didn’t end there as Tuohy rose highest at the resulting lineout to gift Bristol possession, but when referee Andrew Jackson awarded the visitors a penalty, Woodward’s kick drifted wide.Saints though, soon sprung into life with George North the catalyst – the Welshman returning a kick with interest, shunting off Hurrell in centre-field and racing clear. Foden’s prod through then forced Cliff to carry the ball over his own line and from the scrum that followed, Louis Picamoles bundled over from close range, with Myler adding the conversion.EADIE DOES IT: Mitch Eadie dots down for Bristol’s first try at Franklin’s Gardens (Photo: JMP UK). Woodward’s second attempt at goal was a marked improvement on his first as he got Bristol on the board from 25 metres – and the visitors then registered their first try of the afternoon, as Mitch Eadie took advantage of Wallace’s surge down the right to power over from five metres having collected Nick Fenton-Wells’ perfectly-timed pass.Woodward then extended Bristol’s lead to 13-7 with a monstrous 50-metre kick on the half-hour mark, but the lead lasted only six minutes as Mikey Haywood rounded off a spell of Saints pressure with his side’s second try courtesy of a driving maul. Myler’s conversion gave Saints a one-point lead at the break.They were at it again early in the second half – and it was that man Picamoles at the heart of it, shaking off three would-be tacklers before finding Tom Wood for a run-in to the line, with Myler’s conversion was never in doubt.Bristol responded, as they have done so many times in recent weeks, with Woodward firing over a penalty to narrow the gap to five points on 50 minutes.And they soon went one better with one of the tries of the season, as Woodward’s chip ahead from inside his own 22 bounced kindly for Varndell – and the Kiwi rejoined the action to collect the winger’s inside pass and coast in from 50 metres before adding the conversion.SUPER JAS: Jason Woodward slides in for one of the tries of the season in the second half (Photo: JMP UK).But back came Saints – straight from the kick-off – with JJ Hanrahan charging down Cliff’s clearance and sliding in for the score. Myler squandered the conversion, but Woodward made no such mistake with his next kick – a penalty from 40 metres – to level the scores at 26-26 on 65 minutes.Myler nudged the hosts back in front with a penalty from just outside the 22, after Hurrell was penalised at the breakdown – and that was followed by a Harry Mallinder drop goal as Saints built a six-point lead in the closing stages.The hosts then pushed on for fifth try, but they were met by a resilient Bristol defence – and when Dickson kicked the ball into the stand, the visitors had held on for a vital losing bonus-point.Key moment:Jason Woodward’s length of the field effort had given Bristol a two-point lead on 58 minutes, but Saints’ immediate response from JJ Hanrahan – who charged down Will Cliff’s kick straight from kick-off – saw momentum shift back in the home side’s favour.Photo of the match:ELATED: Jason Woodward celebrates his second half try with the travelling Bristol support (Photo: JMP UK). Man of the match: Jason WoodwardA quite outstanding individual performance from Woodward, who followed up last weekend’s showing at Sale with another eye-catching display.

Roger Penske: Team ‘committed’ to four IndyCar drivers

first_imgJuan Pablo Montoya (right) gave Roger Penske his record-extending 16th Indianapolis 500 victory in May.Juan Pablo Montoya (right) gave Roger Penske his record-extending 16th Indianapolis 500 victory in May.FONTANA, Calif. — In case there was doubt, Roger Penske affirmed Saturday his desire to continue employing four IndyCar Series drivers.This season is Penske’s first fielding four full-time entries: Helio Castroeves, reigning IndyCar champion Will Power, Indianapolis 500 champion Juan Pablo Montoya and newcomer Simon Pagenaud.Next win for Ganassi Racing is No. 100“When you’ve got those four guys — four aces — why would you give them up?” Penske said to The Indianapolis Star on Saturday at Auto Club Speedway. “We’re committed (to them).”Team Penske isn’t having the dominant season many expected, but Montoya and Power are one-two in series points after 10 of 16 races, and Castroneves is fourth. Montoya has won a series-leading two races, Power one.Cavin: IndyCar title looks like Montoya’s to losePagenaud has been slow to earn the results expected of him — he won two races in each of the past two years with Schmidt Peterson Motorsports — but Penske isn’t concerned. In fact, Penske sounded like a proud father discussing the Frenchman.“He’s really helped us out; been great for us,” Penske said. “He brings a lot. We couldn’t be happier with him. The results will come.”Pagenaud won his first pole for Team Penske on Friday. He entered today’s MAVTV 500 10th in the standings with his best finish a third in Detroit.Team Penske does not discuss details of contracts, so it’s unclear how long each will remain with the organization.The team based in Mooresville, N.C., is the only IndyCar team fielding the same four drivers all season.Follow Curt Cavin on Facebook and on Twitter: @curtcavin.last_img read more

Showalter still considering options in leadoff spot for Orioles

first_imgBALTIMORE — With Nick Markakis in the midst of his return to Baltimore, the Orioles trotted out their fourth different leadoff hitter in the last five games for Tuesday’s contest against the Atlanta Braves.After manager Buck Showalter moved Manny Machado down to third over the weekend, the All-Star third baseman returned to the top spot, the place in the lineup he’s now occupied 73 times during the 2015 season. Of course, the thinking with moving Machado down in the order was to create more run-producing opportunities for the 23-year-old, but the lack of an ideal option to replace him in the top spot is the bigger long-term problem.Jimmy Paredes, David Lough, and Nolan Reimold received opportunities in the top spot while Machado hit lower in the order. Showalter has used six different players in the leadoff spot this year with two of them — Alejandro De Aza and Everth Cabrera — no longer with the organization.“If you hit Manny first, who hits third?” Showalter said on Monday. “If you hit him third, who hits first? You take one away and then you’re trying to replace it. We put out there what we think is best. Guys know that we’re having some challenges there.”Despite Reimold going 2-for-4 with a double and a walk in the No. 1 spot in Monday’s 2-1 win, Machado struggled in the third spot in the order, going 2-for-15 with four strikeouts and a walk. One certainly shouldn’t draw strong or permanent conclusions from that sample size, but it might have been the level of anxiousness Machado displayed in two at-bats on Monday that reinforced the idea that maybe it’s unwise to mess with a good thing.Machado came to the plate with two runners on base in the eighth and 10th innings of Monday’s game and struck out each time, swinging at several pitches outside the strike zone. One of the biggest factors in the young infielder’s leap at the plate this season has been his improved plate disciplined with a career-high 42 walks in 423 plate appearances entering Tuesday’s game.Did the move to the No. 3 spot alter Machado’s mindset?“I actually asked him about that today. ‘Do you feel any different mentality there? Are you getting bigger?’” Showalter said prior to Tuesday’s game.  “He said, ‘No, it’s just a [slump].’ Since he’s been here — up until the last two or three games — that’s as long as I’ve seen him engaged with a good approach where he was not letting them get him out other than [on] stuff within the zone. He was walking.“You always think it’s a day away. It’s like he said today, ‘I’ve got to get back to what I was doing. It’s got nothing to do with where I’m hitting him in the order.’ Of course, what’s he going to say?”Machado looks the part of a hitter who will eventually settle into the No. 3 spot for a long time, but it would be wise to leave him in the role where he’s thrived in 2015, especially with few other options inspiring confidence in the leadoff spot right now.last_img read more

LVP announces League of Legends national tournaments in Latin America

first_imgThe Liga Profesional de Videojuegos (LVP) announced four national League of Legends tournaments for 2019 in Latin America with support from Riot Games.In 2019, the professional League of Legends scene in Latin America is moving to Chile after Riot Games announced the merge between the north and south leagues. Now, the LVP in partnership with Riot Games announced four national leagues in Colombia, Argentina, Chile, and Mexico.The national leagues are the evolution of the National Circuits, semi-professional circuits for teams in Peru, Colombia, Argentina, Chile, and Mexico. Only in 2018, the National Circuits awarded over $130,000 to the teams taking part in the competition.The National Leagues are divided into two seasons with eight teams competing for the prize that is yet to be announced. Amateur teams that conquer the National Circuits will have a chance to join the National League.The application process is open, the LVP is not taking this step lightly. In order to be considered for the National Leagues, the teams must submit a business plan that includes a legal scheme, financial plans, among others. The teams should also include the sport’s plans showcasing the achievements at the National Circuits, and the working environment plan for the players.Teams are also expected to include a branding plan with numbers of fans and a plan to increase the following. The final requirement is the legal history of the organisation. The application process ends on October 22.In Europe, the LVP announced a new partner, French company LDLC who recently opened a store in Barcelona, Spain. LDLC will provide technical services to the LVP and its tournaments in Spain.Esports Insider says: Latin America is an emerging region with a lot of potentials. The numbers on diverse studies talk about a passionate audience that consumes esports content frequently. This move by Riot and the LVP will improve the region from a competitive point of view but also as a business. Exciting things are coming for Latin America.Subscribe to ESI on YouTubelast_img read more

Lionsgate confirms it will not pull ‘Mad Men’ episode containing blackface

first_imgFrazer Harrison/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — As television series revisit problematic content and remove instances of material deemed racist, Lionsgate has announced that it will not delete an episode of Mad Men that contains blackface.The Los Angeles Times reports that the season three episode “My Old Kentucky Home” will remain available for viewing in its entirety because of the historical context behind it. Instead of editing out the scene where John Slattery’s Roger Sterling smears black shoe polish on his face in an attempt to score romantic points with Peyton List’s Jane at a country club Derby party, the episode will contain a disclaimer.“This episode contains disturbing images related to race in America,” the intro card will read. “One of the characters is shown in blackface as part of an episode that shows how commonplace racism was in America in 1963.”Lionsgate issued a statement regarding its decision, saying, “In its reliance on historical authenticity, the series producers are committed to exposing the injustices and inequities within our society that continue to this day so we can examine even the most painful parts of our history in order to reflect on who we are today and who we want to become. We are therefore presenting the original episode in its entirety.”Other series have opted to edit out scenes or remove episodes containing blackface, such as The Golden Girls, Scrubs, Community and others.As previously reported, Mad Men has left Netflix and will now be shown on Amazon-owned IMDb TV starting July 15. The series will then move to the AMC in the fall.Mad Men aired its final episode in 2015 after a seven season run.  The series collected 16 Emmys, four of which were consecutive best drama series wins.By Megan StoneCopyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
