Round Robin: One-on-one with Humboldt Crabs skipper Guiver

Warriors’ new NBA Finals road goes to Canada

first_imgGolden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry smiles during practice for the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors in Toronto, Wednesday, May 29, 2019. Game 1 of the NBA Finals is Thursday in Toronto. (Nathan Denette/The Canadian Press via AP)TORONTO — Dynasty versus dinosaurs.The Golden State Warriors’ road to a fifth straight NBA Finals has detoured to a new destination — and this one requires a passport.ADVERTISEMENT The Toronto Raptors, a team that arrived in the NBA 24 years ago as the dinosaur-logoed basketball franchise in a hockey-loving country, have finally made it to the championship round and will host Game 1 on Thursday night.It’s the first time the finals will be played outside the U.S., a refreshing change after a record four straight seasons of the same matchup.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logistics“Different for us obviously, having been in Cleveland four straight years, but this is more the rule. That was the exception,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “You’re not supposed to go to the finals four straight years and you’re definitely not, if you’re lucky enough to do that, you’re not supposed to play the same team four straight years.“This is more what the finals normally feel like, where you’re going against a team you frankly don’t know that well and that you haven’t seen that often over the previous few years.” Cayetano: Senate, Drilon to be blamed for SEA Games mess Stephen Curry lived in Toronto when his father Dell played for the Raptors at the end of his career, but otherwise it’s a new feeling even for these Warriors, who are one of the most championship-experienced teams in NBA history.They joined the Boston Celtics from 1957-66 as the only teams to reach five straight NBA Finals, and are trying to become the first team to win three consecutive titles since the Los Angeles Lakers of 2000-02.Besides facing a different opponent for the first time during their run, the Warriors won’t have the luxury of starting the series at home for the first time. They also won’t have Kevin Durant for at least one more game, though none of that rattles a team that has played in 22 finals games in the last four years.“We have been here before,” Curry said. “We understand the hoopla and the pandemonium around the finals and how different things are when it comes to just the schedule and the vibe. So we have seen a lot and we’ll be ready for it.”The Raptors are new to this stage, but their players aren’t. Kawhi Leonard was MVP of the 2014 NBA Finals, when he and Danny Green won a title with San Antonio. Serge Ibaka made it to the finals with Oklahoma City in 2012, and even players such as Kyle Lowry and Marc Gasol have played in Olympic finals.ADVERTISEMENT “Every possession from the jump ball,” he said, “competing, communicating, solving issues as we face them. Do not overreact to whatever.”ROOKIE RUNSKerr won a championship four years ago in his first season as an NBA head coach and now Nick Nurse can do the same. He was promoted last year after the Raptors fired Dwane Casey, and earlier in his career had been a head coach in both the NBA Development League and the British Basketball League.THREE-PEAT FOR NO. 3?Another title would be the Warriors’ seventh and move them into third place in NBA history behind only the Celtics (17) and Lakers (16).100 PERCENTCurry, already the career leading in NBA Finals 3-pointers, needs two more to reach the century mark.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next LATEST STORIES ‘Rebel attack’ no cause for concern-PNP, AFP PDEA chief backs Robredo in revealing ‘discoveries’ on drug war Kevin Durant out with Achilles injury; to undergo MRI on Tuesday PLAY LIST 03:12Kevin Durant out with Achilles injury; to undergo MRI on Tuesday01:43Who are Filipinos rooting for in the NBA Finals?02:25Raptors or Warriors?

It’s still two hoops. So you just go out there and play hard and live with the results.”The Raptors had already moved away from their purple uniforms with the red dinosaur, and their reputation as a loser is extinct, too. They have won 50 games in four straight seasons and have the best record in the East over the last seven, but couldn’t get over the hump until this year, thanks largely to the acquisition of Leonard last summer.He hit the winning shot in Game 7 of the second round and then led Toronto’s charge back from a 2-0 deficit against Milwaukee in the conference finals to win four straight against the team with the NBA’s best record.They made history just by bringing the finals to Canada and the doorstep of their rowdy fans in Jurassic Park . But Lowry has more in mind.“For me it’s all about winning, and when you get to the point where you make it to the NBA Finals, you won but you still got more to do,” he said. “So getting here doesn’t do anything but getting here. We still want to try to win this.”Some other things to know abou the NBA Finals:WOUNDED WARRIORSDeMarcus Cousins (torn left quadriceps) may be ready to return but it could be a little longer for Durant (strained right calf). Kerr said the two-time NBA Finals MVP, already ruled out for Game 1, hasn’t practiced and would have to do so before returning.STRONG STARTERSGolden State has won 12 straight Game 1s, including all four in the NBA Finals since 2015, and Gasol was asked for Toronto’s key to getting the series off to a good start.last_img read more

Dalic Croatia dont intend to stop here

first_imgCroatia boss Zlatko Dalic insists that they intend to go beyond the quarter-finals of the World Cup after booking their place to the last-eight in a tense penalty shoot-out win over DenmarkAfter some impressive displays in their opening three games of the tournament, Croatia failed to build on their Group D win in a convincing manner in what turned out to a rather disappointing match against Group C runners-up Denmark.Mario Mandzukic cancelled out Martin Jorgensen’s 1st-minute opener for the Danes by taking advantage of a mix-up to grab the equaliser just three minutes later.The scoreline remained the same for the rest of the game with the Vatreni later securing a 3-2 win in a penalty shoot-out.But Dalic insists that his side are far from done.“We have come so far but we don’t intend to stop here,” said the 51-year-old, according to The National.Goalkeeper Danijel Subasic saved three spot-kicks form Nicolai Jorgensen, Lasse Schone and Christian Eriksen.ScotlandScotland needs a hero: Billy Dodds Manuel R. Medina – September 10, 2019 According to former striker, Billy Dodds his country needs a hero to inspire future generations as the team’s hope to qualify to the EURO 2020 is small.“You have to earn your luck and the lads earned theirs,” added Dalic.“Without luck, you cannot do anything in life.”The Croatian coach was full of praise for Luka Modric, who missed a golden chance to hand the side the win when he missed a 116th-minute extra-time penalty.But the captain then later stepped up to score in the penalty shoot-out.“He said it himself, ‘I am going to take a penalty in the shoot-out,’” said Dalic.“Can you imagine what would have happened if he had not scored, but he’s a great player.”Croatia will now meet hosts Russia at the Fisht Olympic Stadium on Saturday for the quarter-finals of the World Cup.last_img read more

Jane Goodall Joins Wild Immersion VR Experience to Promote Conservation

first_imgJane Goodall, whose work was recently featured in the Brett Morgen documentary “Jane,” is pushing the boundaries of wildlife conservation once more, this time by backing a virtual-reality nature reserve.The Wild Immersion is the brainchild of Adrien Moisson who, having ditched a career in marketing, came up with the VR reserve as part of a wider plan to develop social, economic, and ecological projects with conservation at their core. “I wanted to transport people into the wilds of nature, to captivate people in order to inspire them to take action, to reconnect people with nature with the aim of funding real nature reserves,” he said.Moisson sought out primatologist Goodall and the institute bearing her name as partners. “Adrien was passionate in saying he has made his money but now he really wanted to focus on conservation and the natural world,” Goodall said. “We first met at Heathrow where I first saw the technology while sitting in the airport. And then after that, the next time was in Paris when he recorded an interview with me.” Electronics company Lenovo, which has its own Mirage Solo headset that works with the Google Daydream VR platform, is the technology partner. The Wild Immersion team shot footage of animals in the Amazon, Australia, Canada, Colombia, and Sri Lanka. There was also filming in China, where discussions are underway to get the Wild Immersion experience into malls, zoos, and theaters.Three 12-minute VR experiences emerged from 120 days of filming: Terra, set in tropical ecosystems; Alba, filmed in polar habitats; and Aqua, which goes beneath the waves.The Wild Immersion team showed off the VR content at the Cannes Film Festival last month. The first films are playing at Forum des images in Paris. A distribution deal is in place with VR specialist Diversion Cinema.Goodall is the subject of scores of documentaries, but she said that VR takes viewers beyond a regular TV experience and maybe even beats being there in some cases. “It’s totally different, actually, to TV because the animals are walking around. You can turn around him follow them. It’s extraordinary,” she said. “You probably see more than people who go on tours with cars.”The aim of Wild immersion is to raise funds for five new nature reserves over the next three years. The first parks will be in India and Tanzania.
