Shorthanded Cavs fall to Pacers, 90-105

first_imgA slow start proved to be the fatal flaw in the Cleveland Cavaliers attempt to upset the Indiana Pacers on Saturday night, with the Cavs falling behind 17-30 in the first quarter but staying close for the rest of the contest, only being outscored 75-72.Rookie point guard Collin Sexton was the standout player for Cleveland, tallying 16 points (6-14 shooting from the field), five rebounds, four assists and hitting all three of his attempts from deep. Sexton continued to show an improved understanding of the game, consistently setting teammates and himself up with clean looks. Unfortunately for the Cavs, the Pacers got off to a hot start behind center Myles Turner, who had 10 points and two threes in just the first quarter.Had he been able to play more than 22 minutes, leaving the game after bumping knees with Cavs center Larry Nance Jr., the final deficit may have been larger.However, Cleveland battled hard in the second half, cutting Indiana’s 21-point lead to as few as 11 points but the Pacers defense held firm against the Cavs ragtag group.Cleveland will face the New York Knicks on Monday at Quicken Loans Arena, in what’ll a more evenly matched game for the Cavs. Related TopicsCleveland Cavaliersfeatured Quenton S.

Seaton Asks Chenault Not to Touch Fund Earnings

Democrats want more money for education and labor union agreements before they’ll grant access to Constitutional Budget Reserve. Majority members say the state can’t afford the expenses. Along with Rep. Seaton, the letter to Speaker Chenault was signed by Reps. Bryce Edgmon, Louise Stutes, Neal Foster, Gabrielle LeDoux, and Jim Colver. All six said they don’t intend to support a vote for using the earnings reserve.center_img FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享One Kenai Peninsula House Representative is asking another not to touch the Permanent Fund earnings reserve.last_img read more

Vietnam Formula One race looks likely, says Ecclestone

first_imgBy Alan BaldwinLONDON, England (Reuters) – A Formula One race in Vietnam could be on the calendar by 2020, according to the sport’s former commercial supremo Bernie Ecclestone.“I think you’re going to get a race in Vietnam,” the 87-year-old told reporters invited to his private offices in central London to talk about various issues ahead of the new season starting next month.The billionaire Briton, who was moved aside into an undefined ‘emeritus’ role in January last year after U.S.-based Liberty Media took over, said a street race in Hanoi looked likely.Ecclestone, who remains employed by Formula One on a multi-million pound salary, said the Vietnamese government was willing to pay a significant amount to promote the South-East Asian country by hosting a grand prix.“They haven’t made a contract yet as far as I know. But if they have, it’s at least two years away isn’t it?” he said.The Malaysian Grand Prix dropped off the calendar after last year’s race but Formula One bosses have talked about expanding in China.There have also been talks with Thailand, which came to nothing, but Vietnam is already an important emerging market for some of the sport’s global sponsors such as Dutch brewer Heineken.Ecclestone told Reuters last year that he had talks with the Vietnamese while he was running Formula One but decided, despite the money on offer, against taking the sport there because he felt there were enough races in that part of the world.He also recalled Liberty’s criticism subsequent to their takeover of his decision to go to Azerbaijan, a country without a racing history but willing to pay handsomely and whose race was rated the most exciting of last season.The Briton warned, however, that uncertainty over the sport’s future was something any local promoter should consider.The current agreements between teams and Formula One mostly expire at the end of 2020, with glamour team Ferrari already threatening to leave if they do not like the direction things are headed.There is also plenty of debate about what kind of engine to use after 2020, with the current V6 turbo hybrids criticised as too expensive, complicated and quiet.While some see Ferrari’s threats as empty ones, with Formula One central to their image and history, Ecclestone repeated his view that the president Sergio Marchionne was to be taken seriously.last_img read more
