the second set, only to let R
« on: July 10, 2019, 06:50:28 AM »

BOSTON -- Rajon Rondo banked in a 3-pointer that broke a fourth-quarter tie. Or so it seemed. Two minutes after the point guard apparently gave the Celtics a 93-90 lead with 4:37 remaining, officials reviewed the shot at the next stoppage in play. They ruled that Rondo released the ball after the 24-second buzzer and disallowed the basket. Boston never led again and the Indiana Pacers won 102-97 on Saturday night, their fourth straight victory. "I love instant replay!" Indiana coach Frank Vogel said with a smile. "Just a big fan, always have been, except for the couple of times it went against us." Boston coach Brad Stevens figured the basket would be taken away once officials took another look. "That doesnt change how were going to play," he said. "Were just going to try to win the next possession and build from there." Those three points were critical in a game between the team with the NBAs best record and one with the fourth-worst mark in the Eastern Conference. "It let the pressure off them," Bostons Jared Sullinger said. "They were playing frantic when the score was (93-90). Then they took away that 3. We kind of let it slip away." Paul George scored 10 of the Pacers last 12 points as they won two nights after beating another of the NBAs worst teams. On Thursday night, the Pacers won 101-96 over the Milwaukee Bucks, who have the leagues worst record. George led the Pacers with 25 points, Evan Turner came off the bench to score 17 and Lance Stephenson scored 16. Indiana won its fourth straight game and eighth in its last 11. "I missed too many easy shots (early) and I told myself when it comes back around that I have to make my shots," George said. "So I just locked in my focus and my teammates found me." Jeff Green had 27 points and Kris Humphries scored 18 as the Celtics lost for the sixth time in seven games. "We kind of got it going in the third (quarter)," Humphries said. "(It) kind of took our wind out of the sails when that 3 didnt count. (I) kind of wish theyd review it right away." Rondos shot was followed by two free throws and a reverse layup by George that put Indiana ahead 94-93. Then the reversal changed the score to 94-90 with 2:38 remaining. Sullingers two free throws made it 94-92 before Georges layup restored the Pacers four-point lead. Boston cut that to 96-94 on two free throws by Brandon Bass with 1:31 remaining, but George followed with a 3-pointer, making it 99-94. Indiana increased the lead to 102-94 on two free throws by Stephenson and one by George before Green finished the scoring with a three-point play. The Celtics scored nine of the last 11 points of the third quarter and took a 78-76 lead at the buzzer when Humphries dunked after rebounding a missed shot by Sullinger. Trailing 74-69, Humphries began the comeback with a 3-pointer on a layup and a free throw. Green and Humphries made jumpers, giving Boston a 76-74 lead with 3:28 left in the period. David West then tied the game with a foul-line jumper before Humphries quarter-ending dunk. Indiana used an eight-point run to take a 51-41 lead with three minutes left in the second quarter. Luis Scola started the surge with a 13-footer, Turner followed with two jumpers and Roy Hibbert hit two free throws. "Evan Turner gave us a big lift throughout the whole game," Vogel said, "but, in particular, down the stretch." The Pacers led 55-45 before Chris Johnsons 3-pointer cut the lead to 55-48 at halftime. The Celtics had a chance to draw closer, but Hibbert blocked Rondos shot with 29 seconds remaining.

Nick Foles Eagles Jersey .I get texts: Do you know Drake? Have you met Drake? He sits there every night, he hears me cuss out the referees every night, Casey said, laughing.The Montreal Canadiens are off to a 2-0 start for the first time since 2009 after posting a pair of road victories to begin 2014-15. They will put that unbeaten record to the test tonight in Philadelphia as they visit the Flyers. The Canadiens downed the rival Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday and followed with a shootout victory the following night in Washington. The Habs shook off a slow start Thursday night to beat the Capitals 2-1. Brendan Gallagher scored the winner in the fifth round of the shootout, beating Braden Holtby with a snap shot after Tomas Plekanec tied the game in the third period with his third goal of the season. Plekanec had two goals against the Maple Leafs in the opener against the Leafs, including the winner with 43 seconds left. His goal on Thursday came not long after Montreal had one disallowed because Rene Bourque made contact with Holtby in the crease, and just minutes before another would-be goal was overturned upon review. Dustin Tokarski made 29 saves for Montreal, most of them after 19-year-old Capitals rookie Andre Burakovsky scored early in the first period. He blocked shots from Burakovsky and 50-goal scorer Alex Ovechkin in the shootout. Back-to-back games, on the road, it was a good test for us, said Tokarski. They came hard at us in the first (period). We expected that. They kind of took it to us there, but after that guys regrouped and showed a lot of character and got the two points. Montreal No. 1 goaltender Carey Price, who made 24 saves in Wednesdays win at Toronto, expects to get the start tonight. Price is 8-9-0 with a 2.67 goals against average and .916 save percentage in 18 career games against the Flyers. Philadelphia has dominated the Canadiens in recent seasons, winning two straight, four of five and 10 of the last 13 encounters. Montreal also has lost its last seven trips to the City of Brotherly Love, having last won in Philly on April 2, 2010. Including the playoffs, the Habs have dropped 10 in a row at Wells Fargo Center. The Philadelphia Flyers fired their head coach after starting 0-3-0 last season. With the Flyers record at 0-2-0 heading into Saturdays game against the unbeaten Montreal Canadiens, perhaps Phhiladelphia head coach Craig Berube should be fearing for his job.dddddddddddd Berube took over Phillys coaching reins when Peter Laviolette was axed three games into the 2013-14 season. However, it does seems unlikely the Flyers will pull the plug on Berube in similar fashion, especially after he righted the ship last year and returned Philadelphia to the playoffs. Still, the Flyers, who went 1-7-0 to begin last season, dont want to get off to another poor start after having to dig themselves out of a big hole last season. Philadelphia dropped a 2-1 decision Wednesday in Boston and then lost its home opener the following night to New Jersey, falling to the Devils 6-4 after getting behind 3-0. The Devils held a 1-0 lead after 20 minutes and pushed their cushion to three goals early in the second period. The Flyers, however, tied the game at 3-3 before the end of the second and were also tied at 4-4 in the early stages of the third. Former Flyer Dainius Zubrus scored the game-winning goal at 7:13 of the third period and Mike Cammalleri added an empty-netter to account for the final 6-4 margin. Wayne Simmonds had two goals and an assist for the Flyers, while Claude Giroux and Vincent Lecavalier also lit the lamp. Yeah we did a good job coming back in the game, we were playing aggressive and playing our game. Its frustrating, said Giroux. Steve Mason turned aside 20-of-25 shots in defeat. He has started both games this season and it could be backup Ray Emerys turn between the pipes on Saturday. Flyers defenseman Braydon Coburn missed Thursdays game with a lower-body injury and he expects to sit out Saturday as well. If Coburn is out for a prolonged period it would be a huge blow to Philadelphias already-thin defense, which is without veteran blueliner Kimmo Timonen due to blood clot issues. Weve gotten better news than we had (Thursday), Flyers general manager Ron Hextall told his teams website of Coburn. Im hoping short-term now instead of mid-term. Before I was thinking weeks as opposed to months and hopefully now its less than that. Nick Schultz replaced Coburn in the lineup on Thursday and logged 14 minutes, 46 seconds of ice time.
