Three technical fouls called after Marcus Morris-Larry Nance Jr. scuffle

Posted on by

Tempers flared Wednesday night in the second quarter of Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals between the Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers, resulting in three technical fouls being doled out.

With 10:47 remaining in the second quarter and the Celtics leading 36-19, Boston forward Marcus Morris broke up a lob pass from LeBron James to Larry Nance Jr., tipping the ball out of bounds and causing Nance to hurtle to the floor.

Morris already had established himself as an agitator earlier in the series, screaming in Cavs center Tristan Thompson’s face when they were both on the floor by the stanchion following a foul.

Assistant general manager Mark Hunter, who had been with the Maple Leafs’ managerial staff since October 2014, has mutually parted ways with the team. Hunter, 55, had previously been the owner, vice-president, and general manager of the London Knights in the OHL for 12 years.

“Following extensive discussions with Mark, he and the Toronto Maple Leafs have mutually agreed to part ways,” said Maple Leafs president Brendan Shanahan. “I’d like to sincerely thank Mark for everything he’s done for this organization over the last four years and I wish him nothing but the best in the future.”

News of Hunter’s exodus comes one day after it was reported that former general manager Lou Lamoriello was leaving his senior advisor role with the Leafs to take over hockey operations for the New York Islanders.ravens_082

Saints sign Tre’Quan Smith, wrap up draft class

Adidas NHL Youth Tiger Williams Red Alternate Authentic Jersey - #22 Toronto Maple Leafs
Via Josh Katzenstein of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, the Saints have signed third-rounder Tre’Quan Smith, wrapping up their entire draft class.

Smith, a wide receiver from Central Florida, impressed in early workouts.

He’s a speed receiver in an offense that is built for them, though the presence of a stocked depth chart including Michael Thomas, Ted Ginn Jr. and restricted free agent pickup Cameron Meredith means there won’t be pressure on him immediately.

In the decisive fourth quarter, Durant hit just one of his five shots and passed up a shot to feed Klay Thompson in the corner on a key possession with the Warriors down by two in the game’s final seconds. Thompson ended up missing a 16-foot fadeaway with 0.5 seconds left after a chaotic sequence in which Draymond Green tried to call a timeout but failed to get the referee’s attention.

Who else but Paul got the rebound? After a Shaun Livingston foul and Paul going 1-of-2 from the line, the Warriors got one final look. Curry missed a 3-pointer from the left corner, which wouldn’t have counted Authentic Mike Komisarek Jersey anyway because the shot wasn’t released before the final buzzer. The two-time MVP was just 1-for-8 in the fourth quarter.

He’ll be present even though the team has yet to give him a new contract. The question becomes whether and to what extent he’ll be participating in on-field sessions.

ESPN: You put together an incredible front office. For three years, they were moving together, building a contender to bring a Cup to Toronto. Now, because of one decision, it falls apart because of one personnel move. Are you at all disappointed that the cabinet couldn’t be kept together?

This was vetted to the satisfaction of ownership and was not an issue in 2009 when Mr. Tepper became a minority owner of the Steelers, a league spokesperson told the Post.

Currently, owners can hold investments in casinos, as long as they don’t participate in the operation of them. That rule, and every other NFL rule regarding gambling, will need to be revisited given that the U.S. Supreme Court has opened the door to legalized gambling. Once teams are benefitted directly and indirectly from wagers on games, the traditional do’s and don’ts regarding gambling will need to be gutted.

Hunter Henry tore his ACL on Tuesday

Posted on by

If the initial report about Hunter Henry’s knee injury is correct, the Chargers may have to rethink their farewell to Antonio Gates.
Women's Elite Josh Rosen Black Jersey: Vapor Untouchable Alternate #3 NFL Arizona Cardinals Nike
The Chargers have announced that Henry tore his ACL during Tuesday’s OTA practice.

Henry was reportedly not touched before getting hurt while running during a drill. Henry, a 2016 second-round pick, caught 45 passes for 579 yards and four touchdowns last year and has 12 touchdowns over his first two seasons.

Speaking of NL West first basemen … In that 10-2 win for the Nationals, Mark Reynolds homered twice. That’s four home runs in six games for Reynolds since joining Washington. Meanwhile, in Colorado …

Limited Mens Marcus Martin Jersey Do you want me to go further? Ian Desmond is at .172/.227/.356. The Rockies need to fix first base. Maybe they should have re-signed Reynolds, who at least gave them a league-average bat last season.

Wentz, of course, didn’t actually participate in any team activities. But he did throw the football, which is still more than Andrew Luck can say.

I’m just learning how to trust it, trust your knee, trust your movement, all of those things, Wentz said, via the Associated Press. That comes over time.

Even though Wentz’s left knee injury didn’t happen in the pocket, it could take time for him to trust planting his lead leg and throwing the ball with confidence. Former NFL quarterback Carson Palmer experienced those sensations in the wake of the first of two torn ACLs that he suffered during his career.

It took me a full year, plus another six, seven games into the next season, to really feel comfortable again and not see ghosts, Palmer said in 2015, via SI.com. There would be times when I’d drop back and I’d see color flash, and I’d pull my leg back or not step into a throw because the memory was fresh.

Wentz will need to not see ghosts when in the pocket, when Carl Davis Authentic Jersey out of the pocket, or when running down the field. He has said his game won’t change, but if he’s overly conscious of protecting it, that could be a problem.

Prosecutors in Patricia case had medical evidence, at least 5 witnesses

Posted on by

The prosecution’s witness list in the sexual assault case against Detroit Lions coach Matt Patricia included a nurse, a doctor, a police detective, a police officer and a college friend of the alleged victim, according to court documents obtained by the Free Press.
Womens Preston Smith Jersey Adidas NHL Men's Nathan Beaulieu Green Authentic Jersey - #82 Buffalo Sabres Salute to Service
Elite Mens Craig Mager Jersey According to court documents, the alleged victim was treated at a hospital called Valley Regional Medical Center in Brownsville, Texas, which is about a 20-minute drive from South Padre Island. That’s where the woman claims Patricia and Mikko Rantanen Youth jersey a college friend sexually assaulted her in a hotel room during a March 1996 spring break trip.

Cavaliers: Kyle Korver’s 3-pointer with nine minutes left in the third period was their first after missing 14 in a row. It cut the deficit from 28 points to 65-40…. Tristan Thompson had eight points and 11 rebounds.

Celtics: The Celtics improved to 8-0 at home this postseason. They do not have to win on the road to reach the NBA Finals…. Boston’s 36-18 lead at the end of one quarter was the second-largest in a playoff game in franchise history.

Christian Kirk, a聽former standout at Scottsdale Saguaro and Texas A&M聽who was聽drafted in the second round聽by the Cardinals, was arrested almost two months before the draft as he was leaving the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Kirk and some friends聽were seen throwing rocks at cars outside the golf tournament on Feb. 3. He was charged with disorderly conduct and proper damage and the case is pending.

We spoke with Christian about it at length and also looked into it independently. Our understanding is that the process will be resolved in the near future but while it remains an active legal matter, we won’t comment further.

Expect Price to improve Cincinnati’s line right away, but he’ll be a significantly better player in Year 2.

New Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel knows a little something about what it takes to play linebacker in the NFL. He played the position for 14 seasons, made one Pro Bowl and earned three Super Bowl rings.

A third reason was the team’s belief in Ogbah, a second-round pick in 2016.

Posted on by

“Ogbah’s a rising star in this league,” Williams said. “He’s got a chance to be Chubb.”

While that all makes sense, it demonstrates the need does indeed have an influence. In this case, it was enough to overcome the reality that Chubb widely was regarded as the better player. So much better that, as PFT explained in the aftermath of round one, the No. 4 pick as of Thursday morning was Chubb. By Thursday night, it had flipped to Ward.

It’s like here we go again. Especially with that team, what they’ve been doing, Cora said. They did it to the Indians. I think two out of three, they came back late in the game. They did it to Houston. They did it to Anaheim. They did it to us twice. You’ve got to play 27 outs against them. From first pitch all the way to the end.

“He’s doing excellent; he’s way ahead of schedule,” Gutekunst said, via ESPN.com. “Those are big injuries. He’s fought through those things before, we expect him to do that again. But yeah, we expect him to be a part of our team.”

Two other options at right tackle — Jason Spriggs and Kyle Murphy — are also coming off of injuries and the Packers waited to draft an offensive lineman until taking Cole Madison in the fifth round, so the lack of a sure Plan B may be part of the reason why no one’s pushing Bulaga out the door despite a $7.9 million cap hit.

Trey Millard, FB, Oklahoma It’s hard to believe Jimmie Ward is entering his fifth season. His first four years have been spent at various positions, flashing various degrees of potential. That convinced the Niners to use the $8. 5 million fifth-year option on him2018 could make or break Ward’s long-term earning power. He hasn’t fully caught on at his latest position, which is free safety in defensive coordinator Robert Saleh’s Seahawks/Jaguars style Cover 3 zone scheme. Carlos Hyde, one of the league’s most underrated traditional runners, more than lived up to his draft status. But, being average in the passing game, he wasn’t an ideal fit for new head coach Kyle Shanahan’s scheme.

In the AFC, only two teams have better odds than Texans of making the Super Bowl

Posted on by

The New England Patriots went 13-3 last season. The Pittsburgh Steelers did too. The Houston Texans, meanwhile, limped to a 4-12 record, which tied them for last place in the AFC South and gave them more wins than exactly two other teams in the NFL: the three-win Giants and the winless Browns. But unlike the Giants and Browns, who aren’t expected to magically turn things around in 2018, expectations are markedly different for the Texans, partly because of Deshaun Watson, whom they traded up to draft in 2017 and quickly emerged as one of the most exciting young quarterbacks in the game right up until the moment he tore his ACL in November.
Limited Womens George Blanda Jersey #22 Nike Malachi Richardson Ash NBA - Backer Toronto Raptors Pullover Hoodie
But in seven games, Watson completed 61.8 percent of his throws with 19 touchdowns, 8 interceptions and a passer rating of 103.0. In Mark Melancon Jersey terms of value per play, Watson ranked seventh among all quarterbacks, according to Football Outsiders, just ahead of Ben Roethlisberger and Matt Ryan.

It’s also worth pointing out that Houston made back-to-back playoff appearances in 2015 and 2016 with these quarterbacks starting games: Brian Hoyer, Ryan Mallett, T.J. Yates, Brandon Weeden, Tom Savage and Brock Osweiler.

The Panthers are in a very different situation, of course. The NFL is currently investigating team owner Jerry Richardson for sexual harassment and workplace misconduct. Richardson announced in December that he was selling the team, and the current asking price (if you care to get involved in the bidding) sits in the neighborhood of $2.5 billion. The New York Times reported last month that the ownership search was in its home stretch and that two favorites had emerged: Ben Navarro, owner of the investment firm Sherman Financial Group, and Alan Kestenbaum, the chief executive of Bedrock Industries.

Limited Womens Zaza Pachulia Jersey This is probably not a storyline the Panthers — or the league — would like to see stretch into the summer months.

Todd Bowles didn’t know Christian Hackenberg was changing throwing motion

Posted on by

Elite Matt Schaub Jersey Yes, Jets quarterback Christian Hackenberg has changed his throwing motion. No, his head coach didn’t know it was happening.
Nike NFL Vernon Butler Black Jersey Women's Game: #92 Carolina Panthers Fashion
He hasn’t talked to me about it, coach Todd Bowles said Saturday, via the New York Daily News. He just worked on it. I’ve learned about it after that fact.

There were similar (if not identical) rules violations before 2006, when high school players could skip college and go directly to the NBA. The rules violations today are not limited to one-and-done players but occur among all players. And there will be similar rules violations in the future.

Blaming one-and-done for college basketball’s problems, as if it is some sort of contagion, simply isn’t fair, and it is not remotely true. The commission is not endorsing the baseball rule, which means players will still be able to leave after only one year and players can still reclassify to enter college earlier, as Marvin Bagley III and Silvio De Sousa did this year, among others.

We’ve been in discussions with his agents and they’re well aware we want to get something done, Snead said. We do think he’s a perfect fit for us. We want to make sure that he’s around, and around for a long time. We also have some other contracts we need to deal with over the next month, two months.
Elite Larry Bird Jersey
Defensive tackle Aaron Donald is the most pressing of those other contract issues and Snead said that the team does have a timetable in mind for ending his multi-year push for a new deal. Snead didn’t share the details of that timetable during his appearance, but finally getting it out of the way would make it easier to start planning for how to tackle the other ones currently on the table.

The Commission on College Basketball addresses important issues related to the NBA draft, enforcement and grassroots basketball. The problem is, it offers little in the way of clear-cut answers.

Instead of addressing the money in the game and the issue of amateurism, the commission simply accepted the flawed argument upon which this entire multibillion-dollar industry is based. It blindly accepted the NCAA rhetoric that athletes already get enough. The commission accepted the fallacy that college basketball’s problems are not based upon its flawed J.J. Jansen Youth jersey rules but are caused by greedy third parties — parents, summer basketball personnel and capitalist apparel companies.

Packers waive incumbent punter after drafting one

Posted on by

When a move is #asexpected, it鈥檚 best to make it quickly.
Youth Boston Bruins #73 Charlie McAvoy Reebok Black Third Premier NHL Jersey
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Packers have waived punter Justin Vogel.

Leading up to the draft, the first-year agent talks to espnW about why this path is a way for her to honor her father’s legacy and how she goes about her business. Here is her story, in her words:

I will say what’s helpful with that name comes a lot of experience and perspective because of my dad’s career, being brought up, and being so close to him. I will say I’ve had a few clients, not just one, who went home or talked to their parent after our initial meeting. He shared my name, and the parents were like, Oh wow, yeah, that’s amazing. They’re so young that they don’t really care, or unless they’re just geeked out on the NFL history; that’s really not something that they know much about. It’s more the parents that bring it up or acknowledge it.

Davenport, 21, made 185 tackles, 37.5 tackles for loss and 21.5 sacks in his four-year career at UTSA.

Marner, a native of Markham, Ontario, has been praised to the stratosphere, while Matthews, a native of a U.S. desert Womens Zac Dalpe Jersey state, has been widely criticized for, among other things, hiding in the trainer’s room instead of meeting the media. This dynamic between the Canadian and American was, perhaps, the most predictable thing in the history of things, but we didn’t expect it to manifest in Year 2.

An immediate resurfacing of the clarion calls for William Nylander to be traded for defensive help.

The realization that Frederik Andersen, who had an underwhelming Game 7 but whose effort was perhaps the sole reason there was a Game 7, may not be the player to provide a solution in goal.
Limited Kids Jason Taylor Jersey
And in the chef’s kiss of postseason postmortems, an incredible statement from Nick Kypreos of Sportsnet about Matthews and coach Mike Babcock: Last year, and going into this year, Matthews was the guy, and toward the end, Babcock lost Matthews. I don’t know what happened, but he lost him, and there was no trust anymore.

Chiefs bring back Stefan Charles

Posted on by

The Chiefs waived defensive tackle Stefan Charles earlier this week, but he won’t have to find a new place to hang his hat.

The team announced on Thursday that they have re-signed Charles while also making it official that defensive end Rakeem Nunez-Roches has been waived.

Charles initially signed with the Chiefs in January to end an absence from the league that started when he was cut by the Jaguars last September. Charles last played in the regular season with the Lions in 2016 and made 12 tackles in 12 games. He spent the previous three seasons with the Bills and had 48 tackles, five sacks and two forced fumbles in 37 appearances.

The Detroit Lions didn’t know that coach Matt Patricia had been indicted for aggravated sexual assault in 1996. So here’s the question: Should they have?

On one hand, it’s understandable to assume that Patricia wouldn’t have made it as far as he did in coaching without something like this coming out. Some have called it a skeleton in the closet; the reality is that it was an unburied bag of bones hiding in plain sight.

Deadspin.com demonstrates just how easy it would have been to find the information, if the Lions had searched for it. A simple Nexis search uncovered it. A league source with access to the service tells PFT that, indeed, the Patricia indictment “comes up right away.”

Apparently, someone else uncovered it, too. The original report from the Detroit News indicates that a private investigation firm requested the court files for Patricia’s case in January. It’s not clear whether the Lions, the NFL, or some other team requested the information.

We have spoken to Coach Patricia about this at length as well as the attorney who represented him at the time. Based upon everything we have learned, we believe and have accepted Coach Patricia’s explanation and we will continue to support him. We will continue to work with our players and the NFL to further awareness of and protections for those individuals who are the victims of sexual assault or violence.”orioles_056

[Mueller raised possibility of presidential subpoena in meeting with Trump’s legal team]

Posted on by

In an interview with The Post, former New York mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani 鈥?now serving as Trump’s lead personal attorney dealing with the special counsel 鈥?said the president did not force Cobb to leave.
Nike Nolan Cromwell Navy Blue Jersey: #21 NFL Name & Number Logo Los Angeles Rams Long Sleeve T-Shirt
Authentic Kids T.Y. Hilton Jersey It was just time for him to go, but he’s still going to be available to us, Giuliani said.

Some people have talked about a possible 12-hour interview, he said, adding: That’s not going to happen 鈥?I’ll tell you that. It’d be, max, two to three hours around a narrow set of questions.

Womens Daryl Williams Jersey Flood appears willing to take a more adversarial approach to the special counsel than Cobb, who advised Trump that cooperating with the probe would help bring it to a rapid conclusion.

For his part, Flood feels strongly that this whole investigation is essentially an attempt to undermine an election, said a person familiar with his views who requested anonymity to describe private conversations. He doesn’t like the idea of an independent counsel.

It is, however, surprising to see the Giants passed up on USC product Sam Darnold in favor of a running back.

More than the decision to select a player at this position No. 2 overall, the Giants now have a major financial commitment on their hands. In fact, Barkley is slated to earn the second-most guaranteed money for a running back in NFL history, behind only Adrian Peterson.

In one way, the rookie wage scale makes perfect sense. Created during the 2011 Collecetive Bargining Agreement, the idea was to value players exactly where they were selected in the draft. On the other hand, it makes very little sense in situations like this.

A source told Mike Jake Ryan Womens Jersey Florio of Pro Football Talk that the Patriots expect both Rob Gronkowski and Tom Brady to be back with the team in 2018. While speculation has been that the star players have stayed away from voluntary workouts because they are unhappy with their contract situations as well as Belichick not allowing them the freedom to train the way they want, Florio notes that the Butler decision could still be a factor.
