The business has changed a bit. You know, I never knew what to expect when I came to Dallas, but everything just came together here. The way, when I got here, that the community embraced me and wanted me to succeed.”He added: “Cuban buying the team at the end of my second year was a huge part of why I was here my entire career. He was a huge supporter of mine. He’s a friend of mine and he’s always supported me throughout my career.

(AP Photo/Michael Wyke)HOUSTON, Texas—The Toronto Raptors have struggled to close out games against good teams this season.They solved that Tuesday night, getting 27 points from DeMar DeRozan while holding off the Rockets 129-113 despite a couple late runs by Houston.ADVERTISEMENT Masked man: Irving returns as Celtics win 13th straight MOST READ DeRozan and Serge Ibaka had back-to-back dunks after Harden’s big play to make it 120-107 with about three minutes left and send many of the home fans toward the exits.Harden had 11 assists and six rebounds. He has scored at least 20 points and had seven or more assists in every game this season.The Raptors scored the first five points of the second half to make it 81-64 and pushed their lead to 19 points midway through the third on Lowry’s 3-pointer.Toronto led by 21 before Houston made five straight points, capped by a 3-point play by Tarik Black. That was the start of a nice run for the Rockets, and they used a 9-3 spurt after that to cut the lead to 97-87. Harden made four points in that span, and Eric Gordon capped it with a layup.Houston led by eight points during the first half, but the Raptors used a 45-point second quarter to take a 76-64 edge into halftime.

The free throw was his 19th, setting a franchise record for most foul shots without a miss in a game.ADVERTISEMENT Just as important, DeRozan thinks he knows the key for Toronto holding leads going forward.“Liking this feeling,” he said. “You’ve got to love this feeling so you don’t got to go out there having too many of them close games that you lost, feeling upset, got to wait until the next game.

first_imgReal Madrid forward Marco Asensio, revealed the main reasons for his recent dip in form for his club and gave Solari the thumbs up as the new manager.The new season for young forward Marco Asensio didn’t start as he expected, a player who hasn’t been able to cover the full expectations that were formed around him during his first couple of seasons with Real Madrid.Today with Santiago Solari as the new manager, he is still one of the players who is not considered within the group of footballers who play on a regular basis and has become one of the biggest disappointments for this season.When the new season was about to start, manager Julen Lopetegui decided that he didn’t want to bring any new transfers precisely because he didn’t want to slow the youngster’s progression as a player.Asensio hasn’t been able to respond to this level of trust from Lopetegui, to the point where Solari is not even considering him as an essential part of the squad like he was when Zidane was still around.During the first few months, the player had already stated that he knew more ambition was required from him and he vowed to fight for a secured spot in the squad’s starting eleven.Y @marcoasensio10… ¡Generosidad sin límite! #UnaNuevaIlusión pic.twitter.com/eYpTXJh1K6— Selección Española de Fútbol (@SeFutbol) November 12, 2018Asensio was recently quoted by Diario AS during a television interview to a show called ‘Vamos’, where he gave some details about his lack of participation with the squad this season.“When things are going well, people pin you as the best player in the squad. When things are not going well, they pin you as the worst. In the end, there are some critics who are not fair, but we already know how journalism works in this country,” started Asensio.“I’m obviously generalizing, but I do find some criticisms to be hurtful towards me. Since I don’t really deem it important and I worry about my own performance, it doesn’t really affect me.”“Since Solari arrived things have improved, the results have been on our side. This is football. Solari is our manager now, we would die for any manager who is with us. We all need to be strong as we’ve always been, this will take us back to the winning path.”David Villa, FC BarcelonaTop 10 players who played for both Barcelona and Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to talk about the best players who represented both Barcelona and Valencia, prior to their La Liga encounter at Camp Nou this evening.“I certainly don’t see this episode as a moment of crisis. But I will also tell you that I’m not the one who has to pull the team up inside the club, there are other players who have played in this squad for longer and are more experienced.”“These players have a greater status than mine and they are the ones who need to carry the team. I did play for a few matches with the last manager, but now I don’t play as much as I’d like to but the final assessments will be made by the end of the season,” he concluded.+3. Seguimos trabajando y creciendo juntos. / + 3. We keep on working and growing together. 💪🏽 #RMLiga pic.twitter.com/Yw8F6at2KQ— Marco Asensio (@marcoasensio10) November 3, 2018Asensio is not the only one who has lost the complete confidence from the new manager, both he and Isco Alarcon are the two players who haven’t played a single minute under the Argentine and still have to prove they are worth for him.In Isco’s case, he played pretty much all the matches he could under Julen Lopetegui when he was fit, but he hasn’t played a single minute under Santiago Solari and this is starting to get worrisome for him.As far as Asensio is concerned, this player is going through the same over hyping that many young stars go through and this time is exactly the one in which he needs to be more careful.The press is the one to blame for this situation, because they are the ones who started making early comparisons that went to the kid’s head and reality has slapped him right in the face.Good training 👍🏽⚽ pic.twitter.com/XQlGrcMXDJ— Marco Asensio (@marcoasensio10) November 9, 2018What do you think Marco Asensio should do, stay and fight for a spot in Real Madrid or leave?

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Hilcorp announced a five year plan to continue conducting exploration and production activities in the Cook Inlet. According to the application the work is expected to span five years includes: 30 days of 2D seismic survey, 45-60 days of 3D seismic survey, geohazard surveys in the Outer Continenal Shelf (OCS) (30 days), middle Cook Inlet subseawall area (14 days), and Trading Bay (30 days), exploratory wells in the OCS (40-60 days per well, 2-4 wells annually for three years) and Trading Bay (120-150 days), Iniskin Peninsula exploration and development (180 days annually for two years), platform and pipeline maintenance (180 days annually for five years), middle Cook Inlet well abandonment (90 days), and Drift River terminal decommissioning (120 days). The proposed action may incidentally expose marine mammals occurring in the vicinity to sources of harassment, particularly through elevated levels of underwater sound in the marine environment, thereby resulting in incidental take, according to NMFS. NMFS invites the public to provide suggestions, and comments on the Hilcorp’s application and request. Public comments must be received no later than November 26. With that announcement the company was required to file an application for the incidental take of marine mammals with the National Marine Fisheries Service in the Cook Inlet. The MMPA states that the term “take” means to harass, hunt, capture, kill or attempt to harass, hunt, capture, or kill any marine mammal. Hilcorp owns and operates in over 29 oil and has field production facilities, including several located in Cook Inlet. The petition includes all four stages of oil and gas activities: Exploration, development, production, and decommissioning. Last month, Hilcorp, also submitted an application for an underground oil and gas lease for five parcels of Kenai Peninsula Borough land in Anchor Point.last_img read more
