We know what type of defense we need to play,” Green said. “I think throughout the regular season, you want to get there every night, but it’s just not realistic, especially coming off a championship.”Sure, Golden State might not make another remarkable, record-setting 16-1 run through the postseason again, but Kerr’s pass-happy bunch sure looks to be back in top form going into the next round.And Green is leading the way by doing everything on both ends as usual. He grabbed a playoff-career high 19 rebounds in Game 5 after getting 18 his previous outing.“We expect him to continue to play with this edge because when he does and he’s played with great emotion and passion, that’s when he’s at his best,” Thompson said.Curry will be re-evaluated later this week as he continues to do more on-court work recovering from a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee.He got hurt March 23 on the very night he returned from a six-game absence with his latest ankle injury. It was bad luck, too, as center JaVale McGee fell into him.Soon, Kerr hopes, he will have his starting lineup intact again and his rotations more reliable — no longer having to piece things together as he did late in the regular season while using an astonishing 27 different starting lineups to get through and wind up a No. 2 seed this time.“Steph has been coming into the gym every day working and he’s doing his thing and we are doing ours,” Kerr said. “We are just hoping for the best. Not making any predictions.”Golden State has won a franchise-record 12 consecutive postseason home games and 20 of the last 22 in the playoffs overall.

We played really hard,” he said. “We played together and stayed with it. We held them to 37 percent shooting tonight which is great. Our defensive effort for the five games was fantastic.

Junior Melville, of Silvertown, Wismar, Linden, was sentenced to three years behind bars on Tuesday by Magistrate Clive Nurse after entering a guilty plea to charges of having unlicensed firearms and ammunition in his possession.The 29-year-old defendant made his final appearance at the Linden Magistrate’s Court where the sentence was handed down. The Court heard that Melville was intercepted at a Police road block on August 1, 2015 at Old England, Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice), where it was discovered that he had a quantity of cash and two unlicensed firearms – a .38 and a .32 revolver – and ammunition. He was subsequently arrested after being told of the offences.Melville, who had initially pleaded not guilty to the offences, changed his plea earlier this month on all three separate charges and was remanded to prison.Magistrate Nurse, in handing down the sentence, told the defendant that he took into consideration the fact that he did not waste the Court’s time and he had a fair prison report. The Magistrate said he hoped that the time Melville spent at the Camp Street Prison helped him to make up his mind regarding the direction he wanted to take in the future.The defendant was sentenced to a fine of ,000 and three years for each offence; however, the sentences will run concurrently.Magistrate Nurse also stated that he took into consideration the 10 months the defendant spent on remand which will be subtracted from the three-year prison sentence.
– Govt condemns theft, says allegations bad for country’s imageThe report into the emergency landing of the Fly Jamaica aircraft has been presented to Cabinet even as Government condemned the alleged theft committed by fire fighters.Minister of State Joseph Harmon revealed that Public Infrastructure Minister David Patterson presented the report, complete with details on the incident, to cabinet. Harmon also noted that Cabinet was briefed about the alleged theft.He noted that these allegations have tarnished Guyana’s international image. However, the Minister acknowledged subsequent reports that the fire fighters in question have been charged and released on bail.“The Minister briefed Cabinet on a number of details, including persons who sustained injuries. He also reported that there were alleged acts of theft by firemen who first arrived at the scene. Cabinet noted the report and expressed the wish that those injured receive a speedy recovery,” Harmon detailed.“Cabinet also condemned as reprehensible the (allegations against the) firemen who allegedly stole personal items belonging to the crew, noting that (these allegations have) seriously tarnished Guyana’s image,” Harmon said.The Fly Jamaica aircraft had taken off from CJIA on November 9, 2018, destined for Toronto, Canada. It is understood that the flight encountered hydraulic problems after some time, and returned to Timehri, where it crash-landed.The tragedy has claimed the life of 85-year-old Rookhia Kalloo, a pensioner who was on the flight. The Flight Data Recorder (Black Box) and Cockpit Voice Recorder (Pink Box) have both since been sent to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) of the United States.In fact, NTSB was one of several safety, transportation and regulatory bodies from both local and overseas that were included in an investigative team probing the emergency landing of the aircraft.This was according to Public Infrastructure Minister David Patterson, who during the 99th Sitting of the National Assembly a week ago had revealed that the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) is conducting an independent investigation into the incident.“GCAA will be conducting this investigation,” Patterson had explained. “As indicated, 128 persons were on board. On evacuation, a total of 10 passengers were taken to the Diamond hospital with the assistance of CJIA ambulance, while the others were examined at CJIA. An independent investigation is ongoing in examining the aircraft and operations on the morning of the accident and review of the standard operating procedures.“The Jamaican Civil Aviation Authority and the National Transportation Safety Board of the United States were notified. An investigative team has been established, including of the GCAA representing the state of occurrence, the US National Safety Board representing the state of registry, and commercial airline engineers representing the manufacturers,” Patterson had added.Besides these agencies, Patterson revealed, the Canadian Transportation and Safety Board and the AIG Regional Cooperation Mechanism (ARCM) were also subsequently advised and invited to provide technical assistance to the GCAA.

28 March 2008Dutch electronics company Philips has entered into a partnership with the state-owned CEF Group and privately owned Karebo Systems to set up a manufacturing facility as well as a recycling plant for energy-saving Compact Fluorescent Lamp integrated (CFLi) light bulbs in Lesotho.In a statement this week, Royal Philips Electronics said that it would hold a 40% stake, with CEF and Karebo Systems each holding a 30% stake in the venture, which is a result of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development’s mission to seek new business activities that will fuel economic growth in this region.“With this joint venture Philips will be able to help stimulate economic growth while accelerating the uptake of energy-efficient light bulbs in general,” Philips said.The market for energy-saving bulbs is growing rapidly globally and is expected to accelerate in the South African region through the efforts of the national government to significantly reduce energy consumption, with an intention to replace 80% of incandescent bulbs with energy-saving bulbs within the next four to six years.However, Philips expects to reduce this timeframe to approximately three years with the establishment of the Lesotho production facility. As CFLi bulbs save 80% energy compared to incandescent bulbs, the company believes it will help overcome energy shortages now being experienced in the country.Quadruple win situationThe production facility in Lesotho will be run by local management, produce up to 15-million CFLi bulbs per year and is planned to be officially open for business in September 2008.The joint venture will initially start with the assembly of CFLi lamps, followed by the production of burners for CFLi lamps and with the establishment of a recycling plant, and potentially, to gradually include the production of components.“With this joint venture we create a quadruple win situation,” said Philips SA general manager Luc Escoute.He explained that the new facility would enable the company to meet the growing demand in energy efficient lighting solutions, stimulate economic development and help reduce electricity costs and cut carbon emissions.“We are happy that this new facility will enable our region to manufacture energy saving bulbs that will help to overcome energy shortages and combat global warming,” said CEF Group chief executive Mputumi Damane. “This [joint venture] will help us securing sufficient supply of CFLi to meet the country’s ambitious targets in electricity reduction, especially in the residential sector.”Karebo Systems MD Peter Kgame echoed those words, stating that switching to energy efficient lighting was the quickest and easiest way to make a significant contribution to reducing demand, and that Philips’ involvement in the project would bring high-quality energy-saving bulbs to the local market.Huge potential savingsAccording to Philips, lighting accounts for around 19% of worldwide electricity consumption, and if all inefficient conventional lighting were switched to energy-efficient technologies, the potential worldwide saving would be about 40%.“In South Africa only, we estimate that lighting represents 15 to 17% of the overall electricity consumption,” said Escoute.He said that if the country aimed for a 40% reduction through energy efficient technologies, it could cut electricity consumption by 14 800 gigawatt-hours, reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 13.3-million tons and save the economy up to R5.3-billion.SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publicationor on your website?See: Using SAinfo material

Gareth Bale’s run of injury misery continued on Tuesday as Real Madrid said their record signing had picked up a calf injury that rules him out for up to four league games and their Champions League semi-final tie with Atletico Madrid.Bale was forced off injured in the 35th minute of Sunday’s 3-2 defeat to arch rivals Barcelona that blew the La Liga title race wide open and took the champions ahead of Madrid in the standings due to their superior head-to-head record.Real released a statement on Tuesday saying Bale had a grade two muscle tear in his left calf, without specifying how long the Welsh international would spend on the sidelines.Radio station Cadena Cope said he would be out for three weeks, therefore missing league fixtures against Deportivo La Coruna, Valencia, Granada and Sevilla in addition to both games against Atletico.Bale has won two Champions Leagues with Real since his then world record move from Tottenham Hotspur in 2013, but his fourth season in Spain has been blighted by injuries.He was forced to spend over two months out after rupturing ligaments in his right ankle in November and was forced off during his side’s Champions League quarter-final first leg at Bayern Munich with an injury to his right calf.Coach Zinedine Zidane was heavily criticised in the Spanish media for fielding Bale against Barcelona 11 days after sustaining the injury, although on Tuesday the Frenchman defended his decision.”He trained normally three times before the game without any problems and things like this can’t be prevented,” Zidane told a news conference.advertisement”It’s an injury but overall it’s a small thing and we hope he’ll be back with us soon.”Real visit Deportivo on Wednesday aiming to stay level on points with Barcelona and sustain their push for a first league title since 2012. But they will also be without Sergio Ramos due to suspension after the captain was sent off against Barca for a two-footed lunge on Lionel Messi.The 32-times Liga champions have been boosted, however, by the return of France defender Raphael Varane from a hamstring problem.
Manchester United Man Utd Team News: Injuries, suspensions and line-up vs Stoke City Kris Voakes Man Utd Correspondent Last updated 2 years ago 14:50 9/9/2017 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Getty Manchester United Premier League Stoke City v Manchester United Stoke City Everything you need to know ahead of the Premier League clash at the bet365 Stadium on Saturday evening Jose Mourinho has reiterated a number of times during Manchester United’s positive start to this season that his side also started last term like a house on fire. Just as 12 months ago United have three wins from three under their belts so far, and the Portuguese will be keen for the Red Devils not to replicate the three successive losses which followed.United head for Stoke on Saturday a very different team to the one which lost to Manchester City, Feyenoord and Watford a year ago though, with the increased pace, power and organisation added to the squad this year having contributed to three convincing victories thus far. And with Marcus Rashford having stood out for England in midweek too, Mourinho has plenty of reasons to be hopeful of continued good form in the weeks to come.United 6/1 to beat Stoke 2-0 Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘I’m getting better’ – Can Man Utd flop Fred save his Old Trafford career? Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing The game at the bet365 Stadium presents a crucial league fixture just three days before United return to Champions League action for the first time in almost two years against Basel at Old Trafford on Tuesday.MAN UTD INJURIESLuke Shaw has made two appearance for United’s under-23 side in recent weeks as he returns from a foot ligament injury. Following a 58-minute appearance in a 1-1 draw with Swansea in Leigh, he turned in a full 90-minute showing against Tottenham at Stevenage which saw United’s second string lose 3-1.Ashley Young also played in the first of those games, and he is another player who could add to Jose Mourinho’s stocks as United look to use the full depth of their squad with games coming up thick and fast.Marcos Rojo is due out until the end of the year with an ACL knee injury, although he is now back in light training alongside the first team so could step up his rehabilitation in the coming weeks, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic is another who could be out for a period of some months still despite having been named in United’s Champions League group stage squad.MAN UTD SUSPENSIONS United will not have anyone suspended for this league encounter, with the European bans to be served by Phil Jones and Eric Bailly in midweek their only pending concerns.MAN UTD POTENTIAL STARTING LINE-UPJose Mourinho has made only one change so far this season, with Anthony Martial replacing Marcus Rashford for the 2-0 win over Leicester City last time out. Rashford could well receive a recall for the trip to Stoke after starring in England’s 2-1 win over Slovakia at Wembley on Monday, but there could also be other minor changes made by the United boss.With the Champions League visit of Basel three days away, Mourinho could revert to type by making subtle alterations to his team in order to save the legs of some of those he has in mind for a starting berth on Tuesday.There will be no changes at the heart of defence though, with Eric Bailly and Phil Jones starting against Mark Hughes’ side ahead of their enforced lay-offs in midweek. Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof have already been slated to start against Basel and will sit out this game in preparation.STOKE CITY TEAM NEWS Stoke have had the ultimate mixed start to the Premier League season, with their opening-day loss to Everton at Goodison Park having been followed up with a narrow victory against Arsenal thanks to Jese Rodriguez’s debut goal. Last time out they ended West Brom’s 100 per cent start with a 1-1 draw at The Hawthorns.Jese’s impact has been one of the high points of the Potters’ campaign so far, while the form of former United midfielder Darren Fletcher following his move from West Brom has also given them a huge boost. However, the Scot was forced to withdraw from his national side’s fixtures against Lithuania and Malta due to a knee injury last week. He is back in training with Stoke but could be touch-and-go to return on Saturday.Summer signing Eric Choupo-Moting is expected to be fit enough to at least take a place on the bench after missing Cameroon’s World Cup qualifiers this week with a hamstring problem.BEST OPTA MATCH FACTS Stoke are unbeaten in their last four home Premier League games against Manchester United (W2 D2) since losing four of their first five between 2008-09 and 2012-13. Under Sir Alex Ferguson, Manchester United’s win percentage in the Premier League against Stoke was 90% (won nine out of 10) – since he left in May 2013, they’ve won three out of eight; a win ratio of 37.5%. Coming in to this matchday, Manchester United will have ended 27 days at the top of the Premier League table this season – more than the total of the previous four seasons combined (16 days). The Red Devils have scored four goals from substitutes so far this season; more than any other Premier League team (Martial x2, Rashford and Fellaini). In 2016-17, they only scored six goals through subs in 38 games. Mourinho has lost his fourth league match of the season in four of the last five seasons (W1), with his first defeat as Manchester United boss coming on the fourth Premier League matchday against Man City last season. Henrikh Mkhitaryan has provided five assists in his first three Premier League games this season. Only two players have provided six assists in their first four Premier League apps of the season – Thierry Henry in 2004-05 and Cesc Fabregas in 2014-15. Saido Berahino hasn’t scored a Premier League goal since 27th February 2016, with his current drought extending to 1823 minutes (over 30 hours of action).
