That’s something I haven’t seen in the last two games for the most part.”Jackson and O’Neale took turns dominating on offense in the second quarter. O’Neale had nine points in the quarter, and Jackson had eight.Jackson’s four baskets early in the quarter helped the Suns stick with the Jazz. O’Neale took over late in the quarter, scoring four baskets in the final 3:44 before halftime. He capped it off with a buzzer-beating step-back jumper that gave Utah a 50-41 halftime lead.The Suns rallied again in the third quarter and went ahead 60-59 on a basket from Alex Len. Mitchell answered with a go-ahead 3-pointer on the other end and eventually put the Jazz back ahead 70-62 on a step-back jumper from the rookie.“We knew it would be a tough game, and it was,” Jazz coach Quin Snyder said. “Fortunately, we made some plays that we needed to make to win the game.”TIP INSSuns: Booker returned to the lineup after missing four games with a left hip contusion. … Jackson scored 20 plus points for the eighth time in the last 19 games. … The Suns outscored the Jazz 31-19 in bench points.Jazz: Ricky Rubio (hip) did not play for a third straight game. …. Mitchell has led Utah in scoring during its 11-game winning streak, averaging 21.3 points. He’s the first rookie to do that.SNEAKER MESSAGEWednesday’s mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, which claimed the lives of 17 people, weighed heavily on Mitchell’s mind. The Jazz rookie wrote “Pray for Parkland” on the back of his sneakers before tipoff.Mitchell’s mother is a nursery teacher.“My prayers go out to all those families, man,” Mitchell said. “It’s tough. It’s crazy. We definitely got to do something about it. We talk about it and there’s a lot of awareness of it, but there’s nothing done.”PAYTON’S PLACE Phoenix took a 75-74 lead early in the fourth quarter on back-to-back baskets from Marquese Chriss and Josh Jackson. Crowder got to the line on two straight possessions to fuel an 8-0 run that put Utah back in front 85-77.Later, the Suns cut it to 98-95 on a 3-pointer from Elfrid Payton. Crowder went to work again. He answered the basket with back-to-back layups to give the Jazz a 102-95 lead with 1:58 left.“Just understanding the game is one of the biggest things with him,” Mitchell said. “He communicates with us and he’s been great to play with. He’s working hard to learn all the plays.”Devin Booker returned from a hip injury to lead the Suns with 28 points. Jackson added 22 points, and Payton had 13 points, 11 rebounds and 12 assists. Phoenix has lost seven straight.Utah had a 54-41 rebounding advantage and a 52-40 edge in points in the paint.ADVERTISEMENT Lillard drops 44 as Blazers overcome Durant’s 50, Warriors UK plans Brexit celebrations but warns businesses may suffer After only three games, Phoenix appears to be a good fit for Payton. The fourth-year guard notched his ninth career triple-double. Since Phoenix acquired him from Orlando, Payton has averaged 20.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 8.7 assists.Suns coach Jay Triano said Payton has revitalized the team, even if it isn’t showing up in the win column yet.“The guy has started a lot of games in the league, knows how to play the position,” Triano said. “He can get in the paint. He’s got a great mid-range game. Makes other players on the floor around him better.

first_imgOpposition Chief Whip Gail Teixeira’s motion to have Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo and Natural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman committed to the Parliament’s Committee of Privileges over ‘misleading statements’ made in the National Assembly was on Monday thrown out.“I hold the test as to whether there exists a prima facie case… I have examined the letter and other relevant documents and have concluded that a prima facie case has not been made and the request disallowed,” said the Speaker of the National Assembly, Dr Barton Scotland.In April, Teixeira had written the Speaker of the National Assembly and lodged a complaint against the two senior Government officials. She was contending that Trotman, during his budget speech earlier this year, said when the coalition Government assumed office, it had found that 100 per cent of Guyana’s productive forests were hived off. This notion was reiterated by Prime Minister Nagamootoo.Teixeira, thus, called on the Speaker to have Trotman and Nagamootoo withdraw their statements and apologise.Dr Scotland explained to the Parliament that after having received Teixeira’s letter of complaint and accompanying motion, he assumed the task in the determination of whether a case had been made out against the two officials.He said he had determined that was insufficient evidence to commit either of the men to the Committee for breach of privileges.Teixeira had stated that the two men could have withdrawn their erroneous statements but they proceeded to continue to hold fast to their positions in the face of “evidence to the contrary”.Trotman had stated in the House that, “We were met with an alarming situation where we discovered that 100 per cent or all of our productive forest was allocated by the past Government.”last_img read more

first_imgPopular businessman and sports fanatic Lloyd WP Britton has thrown his company’s support behind the 8th of May-organised football competition.The football competition, which is being staged in observance of Guyana’s Emancipation celebrations, will see some 12 teams battling for the sponsored top prize of $350,000.Businessman Lloyd Britton presenting the cheque to BV/Triumph 8th of May group Chairperson Latecia Stuart in the presence of other executive membersAccording to Chairperson of the BV/Triumph 8th of May group, Latecia Stuart, the competition was long in planning; however after not securing any sponsorship, a request was made to Britton, of Lloyd Britton Enterprise, who immediately jumped on board offering a significant investment.“He readily came on board as his primary objective is to fuel youth and community development, so he is willing to lend support and assistance to any event or project that achieves that. This is a businessman who puts his money where his mouth is. Therefore, we at 8th of May are very happy with his investment into this competition,” one of the organising members said.Stuart disclosed that the primary aim of the competition was to involve a number of communities along the East Coast of Demerara, thus aiding in bringing about cohesion and a healthy sporting spirit among teams and supporters. As such, the teams competing are village teams as clubs are restricted from being part of the competition.It was noted that the primary reason for including village teams as opposed to club teams is that only bona fide members of the competing villages can compete while club teams’ membership may be drawn from several villages. Further, it was disclosed that no player in the Elite League can compete in the competition and it was disclosed that this was a condition of the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) in endorsing the competition.The villages slated to compete are Plaisance, Vryheid Lust, BV, Better Hope, Buxton, Golden Grove, Victoria and Anns Grove, along with some association teams such as Upper Level, Police and a team representing 8th of May, among a number of other teams.The 8th of May Chairperson said that all the matches were slated to be played under floodlights with patrons being asked to pay $500 to view the matches, which will all be played at the BV Community Centre Ground.Stuart said that they foresaw the competition having a total of 12 teams, stressing that while the villages have confirmed participation, they were still awaiting confirmation from the invitational teams.She further disclosed that each team would be paying an entrance team of $20,000, noting that each team would consist of 18 players, a manager and a coach, thus resulting in a cost of $1000 per person. She added that significant work has gone into the planning of the competition.“The support given by Mr Britton has set the ball rolling and we remain confident that a number of other persons and companies would step forward to play a part as we are certainly in need of support,” she said.It was revealed that another of the primary goals of the competition was to ensure that there was community participation at all levels. This, the Chairperson stressed, will further help in fostering the level of cohesive partnerships that exist among them all.The competition will kick off on August 3, and is expected to conclude on September 3.last_img read more

PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, Jun 6- After their SportPesa Super Cup exit following a 4-2 post-match penalties loss to Tanzanian side Singida United, AFC Leopards head coach Rodolfo Zapata will turn his attention to fighting for the Kenyan Premier League title and quench the club’s two decade wait for the gong.AFC are placed sixth in the standings with 25 points, nine behind leaders Gor Mahia with whom they have a pending fixture against and Zapata believes the race is still wide open and his charges have the ability to dethrone their arch rivals. “I took the team in the middle of the season and it’s not easy. But I am happy that we are still unbeaten in 90 minutes since I came here and the league is still wide open. There are many matches to play and the difference is not very big. We need to keep working,” the coach said.He added; “We need to keep playing good football and keep playing like Leopards; we are a big team and we have to play like one.”Apart from the league, Ingwe are also seeking to defend their Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Shield title having started off with a 2-1 win over third tier side Shabana in the round of 64.AFC Leopards players line up before their SportPesa Super Cup match against Tanzania’s Singida United at the Afraha Stadium in Nakuru on June 5, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluLooking back at the SportPesa Super Cup exit against Singida, Zapata was disappointed they could not convert the many chances they created in the match , but still noted he was pleased with the performance of his team.“We dominated the second half and had many opportunities. Singida is a good team and my players did a great job. I have no complains and I am proud of them. Penalties are a lottery and it is different when you take with pressure and under no pressure. In training we were scoring,” the Argentine tactician noted.He added; “We have a lot of young players in the team and I am happy with their effort. I have nothing bad to say about them. This was a good experience for them and Leopards fans can be proud of them.”AFC Leopards players warm up before their SportPesa Super Cup match against Tanzania’s Singida United at the Afraha Stadium in Nakuru on June 5, 2018.
