Irving breaks through with 31, Celtics beat Pistons again

first_img“I was taking shots that they were giving me,” said Irving, who made 10 of 16 shots from the floor and added five assists and five rebounds. “Me taking some of those shots made the defense come out a little higher, then created some other opportunities for my teammates, which felt good.”Irving’s effect on the game showed in the box score as well with four of his teammates also scoring in double figures as the Celtics won their third straight.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissJayson Tatum scored 16, Jaylen Brown had 14 points and Al Horford scored 11 for Boston.

(AP Photo/Mary Schwalm)BOSTON — After averaging 14 points through the first six games, Kyrie Irving knew he was due to start hitting some shots.Irving broke through Tuesday night with a season-high 31 points and led a third-quarter surge that put Boston in command of a 108-105 win over Detroit, handing the Pistons back-to-back losses after a 4-0 start.ADVERTISEMENT Andre Drummond had 17 points and 12 rebounds and Reggie Bullock scored 16 for Detroit. Ish Smith added 13 points off the bench and gave Detroit one more chance on a 3-pointer with 12 seconds left to play, pulling Detroit within 103-102. But the Celtics sealed it from the foul line.Tatum drew a foul and made both free shots with 10.5 seconds left, then Irving added two more from the line after Detroit turned the ball over on the inbound play.The Pistons led 58-56 after a high-paced first half, but fell off in the third quarter, going 4 for 17 from the floor and missing all six attempts from 3-point range.Irving took over in the third, scoring 13 and starting an early 10-0 run that put Boston up for good.“We had to pick our energy level up,” Brown said.Griffin hit a pair of free throws with 4:38 left in the period to pull Detroit within 70-65, but Irving responded for the Celtics with three straight 3-pointers as Boston stretched the lead to 14 points late in the period.Drummond got Detroit back in it in the fourth quarter after Griffin drove for a layup that cut Boston’s lead to 88-84 with 6:01 left to play. Drummond drove for a dunk, blocked a shot by Tatum at the other end and was there to tip in a miss by Stanley Johnson to pull within 90-88.The Celtics thought Drummond interfered with the ball while it was on the rim and called for a replay, which didn’t happen but did get coach Brad Stevens a technical for coming out on the court to argue.Bullock made the foul shot to pull Detroit within a point, but Boston responded again with six straight points.“I love our fight,” Detroit coach Dwane Casey said. “Like I told the team, we put that type of intensity and fight every night, and that’s what we ask, you put yourself in position to win.” “Law of averages,” Boston coach Brad Stevens said. “He’s way too good of a scorer for the ball not to go in very long and all that stuff evens out over time.”Blake Griffin had 24 points and 15 rebounds for Detroit, which couldn’t recover after scoring just 13 points in the third quarter.The Pistons chopped Boston’s 14-point lead down to a point with 4:21 left to play, and then again with 12 seconds remaining, but couldn’t complete the comeback.“I like how we played in stretches tonight. Playing at home, getting beat by 25,whatever it was, and then coming out and giving this type of effort is promising,” Griffin said. “That’s what we have to do. We might not be as talented as some of these teams in the East, but we have enough talent.

AFC thump Nakumatt to inch closer to top 10

first_img0Shares0000AFC Leopards celebrate with Andrew Tololwa after the midfielder scored the lone goal in their 1-0 win over Nakumatt FC on November 5, 2017. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, Nov 5- Andrew Tololwa repaid the faith shown in him by head coach Robert Matano, scoring the only goal of the match as AFC Leopards beat troubled Nakumatt FC 1-0 to move 12th on the Kenyan Premier league log.Nakumatt, who are battling to stay afloat amidst a financial crisis still found within themselves some strength to fight especially in the second half, but they could not find the back of the net. However, the team owned by troubled supermarket chain Nakumatt Holdings already have relegation worries wiped off after performing well in the first leg and will now only be planning on their survival next season.Tololwa opened the scoring with a thumping header in the 14th minute from the edge of the six yard box when he rose amidst tight marking to nod in a well weighted delivery from a free-kick by Duncan Otieno.Ingwe were rightly gifted for a positive start that had seen them raid the Nakumatt half with ambition, Vincent Oburu and Aziz Okaka tearing up the backline with some electric pace.Nakumatt FC defender Nicholas Mejja makes a tackle to prevent AFC Leopards forward Vincent Oburu from going forward during their Kenyan Premier League match on November 5, 2017. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluEarlier before the goal, Oburu was gifted with a chance after some haphazard defending by Nakumatt centre-back Kennedy Onyango, but the youngster could not take full advantage of the chance, firing wide from inside the box.Two minutes after going ahead, a quick interchange of passes between Alex Kitenge, Tololwa and Oburu almost bore the second goal, but Oburu’s shot after breaking into the box was well saved by Ezekiel Owade in the Nakumatt goal.AFC continued to pound pressing Nakumatt into their own half. In the 28th minute, Ingwe had a chance with a freekick from scoring range but Duncan Otieno went for power instead of precision, thumping the ball into the wall.Robert Matano’s men had more chances to score and they twice hit the bar. In the 36th minute, Mudde was set up by Oburu who had done all the spadework driving the ball from his own half to the edge of the box, but the Ugandan midfielder hit the bar with his shot.Two minutes later, it was Oburu’s turn to hit the upright, this time gliding past two of his markers before shooting low, but the effort bounced on the post.AFC Leopards forward Vincent Oburu strides forward during their Kenyan Premier League match against Nakumatt FC on November 5, 2017. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluFour minutes to the break, Nakumatt had their first chance of the game but Akenga missed with a header unmarked inside the box from a Joshua Oyoo cross.In the second half, Nakumatt came back with an attacking intent and they pushed AFC into defending inside their own half.Ingwe were forced to make a change quarter of an hour into the second half when keeper Gabriel Andika came off injured after clashing mid air with Nakumatt players as he went to pick a corner. He was replaced by youngster Edwin Mukolwe.Mukolwe’s first order of business was to prevent an effort from Oyoo, and he did it well spreading his body nicely on the ground to thwart the effort on the left.In the 72nd minute, Nakumatt had a glorious opportunity to raw back level after Akenga was put through by Kevin Omondi, but the forward with only Mukolwe to beat shot against the crossbar. From the rebound, Clinton Kisiavuki’s header was cleared off the line by Mike Kibwage.AFC came alive in the final 10 minutes of the game but they couldn’t extend the score-line. Oburu had a chance nine minutes from time but his shot was saved by Owade.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
