MIAMI (AP):Miami jumped a slow-starting and inaccurate Dallas to set up a 106-82 win against the Mavericks on Friday, moving within one game of the lead in the NBA Southeast Division.Hassan Whiteside had 25 points and 19 rebounds for the Heat, who were without an ill Dwyane Wade early but still dominated.Elsewhere, Toronto rallied in the fourth quarter to beat Charlotte, and Chicago blew a big lead before steadying and beating New York.Miami’s Gerald Green added 19 points off the bench for Miami, who were forced to adjust their starting lineup shortly before tip-off when Wade was stricken by flu-like symptoms. Wade got some intravenous fluids and checked in early in the second quarter, just his 10th time playing off the bench in his 13-year career.Whiteside made 12 of 16 shots, and the Heat enjoyed their biggest victory margin of the season.Dallas had only 10 points in the first quarter – their lowest for any period this season – and shot just 36 percent for the game, compared to 56 percent for Miami.Zaza Pachulia’s 14 points and 13 rebounds was best for the Mavericks, who had won their previous four games.Toronto came from seven points down after three quarters to defeat Charlotte 104-94.DeMar DeRozan had 23 points and Kyle Lowry added 18 points and 11 assists for the Raptors.Kemba Walker had 18 points for the Hornets.Chicago blew a 17-point lead before pulling away again in the final quarter to beat New York 108-81.Jimmy Butler scored 23 points, and Nikola Mirotic had 17 points and seven assists for the Bulls, who won comfortably despite Derrick Rose missing a second straight game with hamstring tendonitis.Carmelo Anthony scored 20 for New York, who have dropped five of six.Washington beat Orlando for the 11th straight time, with John Wall contributing 24 points with 13 assists toward a 103-91 victory.Los Angeles’ Lou Williams scored 12 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter against his former team to guide the Lakers to a 93-84 win against Philadelphia in a match of the league’s two worst teams.
LETHBRIDGE, A.B. – Three athletes that train with Fivestar MMA in Fort St. John competed at Rumble in the Cage 53 in Lethbridge last weekend.Ashley Rouble, Amanda Rogers, and Nick Young were all competing in K1-style kickboxing. The sport is similar to the kickboxing that Young and Rogers showcased during last month’s charity boxing match in Fort St. John, albeit without shin guards or head gear.Rouble, who is 17 years old, competed against another fighter eleven years her senior. After dominating the fight for one three minute round, Rouble managed to beat her opponent with a solid kick to the liver halfway through the second round to get the win via TKO.- Advertisement -Amanda Rogers, who recently moved to Grande Prairie and had been unable to train with the gym regularly, ended up going the distance in her fight. Rogers stood against her opponent for three 3-minute rounds, but sadly lost her match in a split decision by the judges.Fivestar MMA owner Justin Donally described Nick Young’s fight as “really weird.” Young is 16, stands roughly 5’6” tall, and weighs 150 lbs. His opponent was one year older than him, and had a height and weight advantage of 3-4” and 9 lbs respectively. Young can out swinging in the first round, first managing to daze his opponent before landing a clean right hook that knocked him to the mat. Donally says that confusion arose when after assessing the other fighter, officials allowed him to continue the match. Having his supposed victory cut short, Young continued to battle for the full 9 minutes. Donally says that after winning the second round, Young was then fouled twice by a pair of low kicks, resulting in his opponent losing a point. In spite of this, the officials scored the match a draw after the match. After the match, the event’s promoter told Young that he felt that he had definitely won the match, although Young’s record will still show a draw.Young and Rouble, along with other members of Team Fivestar will be in action in Quesnel on December 10th for a series of boxing matches.Advertisement

During that period, Salah has played an additional 2,539 minutes of football, through his participation in European, domestic and international cup competitions.-Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham target, Kalidou Koulibaly, has played the most minutes – if Koulibaly does join a Premier League club, the club will be purchasing a player who has clocked more minutes for club and country than any other African player since the summer of 2017.-Arsenal transfer target, Franck Kessie, will also head into the AFCON fatigued – Kessie has racked up 9,181 minutes; 8,461 of those minutes came domestically for AC Milan.Which clubs are best represented at the tournament?-The French league (90 players) is the biggest source of players playing in the AFCON – this is followed by South Africa (46 players) and England (42 players). The French league has three times as many players represented as fourth-placed Turkey (30 players).-African players accounted for 8.2% of the minutes played in the Premier League last season – only Ligue 1 (17.5%) has a higher proportion than the Premier League out of Europe’s Top 5 leagues.-There are 21 Premier League players participating in the tournament in Egypt – Crystal Palace have 4 players at the competition (Zaha, Sako, Ayew and Kouyate), the most of all Premier League clubs, while Liverpool have 3 players (Salah, Mane and Keita).Who will be the most relieved that the tournament has moved to the summer?-Salah, Mane and Keita played a staggering 20.5% of Liverpool’s minutes last season – if they had disappeared in January last season, it could have had a serious impact on their challenge for trophies.-Liverpool, followed by Crystal Palace, are the clear beneficiaries of the competition’s move from the January to the summer – Zaha, Sako, Ayew and Kouyate accounted for 16.4% of Palace’s minutes in the Premier League last season.African players and nations in the Premier League-Chelsea have given the most appearances (1,226 appearances) to African players in Premier League history – they also gave the fewest (0 appearances) out of the top 6 in the 2018/19 season.-Arsenal are a narrow second (1,210 appearances), while Newcastle rank third (1,175 appearances) – Newcastle rank third despite having not been an ever-present in the top flight.-Chelsea have also scored the most goals (197 goals) by African players in Premier League history – none of these goals came in the 2018/19 season, while the majority (112 goals) came between the years 2000 – 2010.-Just under 40% of the total amount Liverpool goals scored by African players in the Premier League came in the 2018/19 season (47 goals) – with two of Liverpool’s front three hailing from the continent, they are rising rapidly up the list.-Nigeria (3,340 appearances) is the best-represented African country in Premier League history – Senegal (2,687 appearances) are second and the Ivory Coast (2,333 appearances) completes the top three.-In terms of goal-scoring, more than 1,000 Premier League goals have been netted by Nigerian, Senegalese or Ivorian players – Ghanaian players are the only other nation who have scored over 100 goals.https://sports.bwin.com/en/news/football/what-to-look-out-for-at-the-africa-cup-of-nations Tags: AFCON 2019beIN Sportstop Comments
