Brooklyn Nets’ James Harden receives blended response from fans in return to Houston Rockets
Toyota Center public address announcer Matt Thomas endeavored to utilize a similar tone and fervor Wednesday night when James Harden’s turn came up in the beginning arrangement presentations as he did all through the past eight seasons.
The conditions, obviously, were very extraordinary. So was the response from Houston Rockets fans, who welcomed Harden with a combination of cheers and boos as the 2017-18 MVP got back to confront his previous group interestingly since his solicitation to be exchanged to the Brooklyn Nets was conceded seven weeks prior.
“As far as playing in Houston, a lot of mixed emotions for the fans, but I knew that was going to happen,” Harden said. “I just wanted to come out here and give them a show.”
Harden prevailing with such a breathtaking execution that has been practically standard for him since he joined the Nets. He had 29 focuses, 10 bounce back and 14 helps to lead Brooklyn to a 132-114 success over the injury-attacked Rockets, his eighth triple-twofold in 23 games for the Nets, who enter the All-Star break having won 10 of their previous 11 games.
It was the 13th straight loss for the Rockets, who were restricted to eight accessible players as the establishment’s longest losing streak in twenty years was reached out into the All-Star break.
“The way we’ve been losing, we definitely do need a break to clear our minds, find ourselves, try to get some guys healthy, try to get a full team again,” said Rockets point guard John Wall, who scored 36 points on 12-of-30 shooting in 41 minutes. “I don’t know when the last time we had a full team. Tonight we went in with only eight guys, but we didn’t stop fighting. We kept competing, we kept battling, and that’s one thing you can respect.”
A smattering of fans in the decreased limit swarm booed Harden each time he contacted the ball right off the bat in the game, communicating their disappointment of Harden’s driving the Rockets to exchange him, a separation cycle he has recognized turned out to be more tense and harsh than he would have preferred. Solidify, who as per Elias Sports Bureau research turned into the 6th player to post a triple-twofold in his first game against his previous group, said the boos didn’t affect him.
“Once I get on that court, it’s just trying to win,” said Harden, who was 10-of-15 from the floor. “I’m not really worried about anything else. That was kind of my feeling — win the game and do whatever it takes to do what you’ve been doing. I wasn’t trying to show off, wasn’t trying to do anything out of the ordinary that I haven’t been doing.”
The Rockets as an association gave Harden a warm greeting back to Houston. He talked with and embraced a few Houston staff members and players when the game. A recognition video, including features from Harden’s eight seasons in Houston and his beneficent demonstrations locally, played during the first break of the game.
“You could tell it meant something to him,” Nets coach Steve Nash said. “This place is special for James. Houston means a lot to him — the city, the organization, what he accomplished here with this team. I know it was a big game for him. I’m proud of the way he handled it.”
Harden said he learned “on the Internet” on Tuesday that Rockets proprietor Tilman Fertitta plans to in the long run resign Harden’s No. 13 pullover and drape it in the Toyota Center rafters.
“My reaction was hopefully I did something right. Obviously, I came up short of a championship, but the work on and off the court that [I] put in over those past eight years was elite,” he said. “I think that’s the only thing I didn’t do or didn’t accomplish, was a championship, which is difficult to attain. But as far as bringing excitement to this city, taking care of the fans on and off the court, is something I tried to contribute, so hopefully that outweighs that [lack of a championship].”
Greg Chappell encourages Australia to not view the India trip as a “sideshow” because “there is red-hot fury and embarrassment among our fans”
According to former Australia captain Greg Chappell, the team’s first two Test losses in India have left the nation’s supporters furious, perplexed, and ashamed.
After falling behind 2-0 in their four-match Test series against India, Australia has now lost the Border-Gavaskar Trophy four times in a row. Australia lost both games in the span of three days, with India mercilessly exposing Australia’s hitters’ deficiencies against spin bowling. Although the second day of the second Test was a competitive match, the Australian batters meekly gave up in the third, and former captain Greg Chappell claims that the performance has disappointed the home crowd.
According to Chappell, Australian cricket as a whole has to start ranking India trips on par with or even higher than the Ashes. The fact that our squad has displayed such little grit thus far in the series has enraged the Australian public, and rightfully so. The sight of a batsman being out on the first ball while doing the reverse sweep and acting like this series is not important for the future pisses off. Australian cricket needs to understand that taking on India is not a sideshow but rather the main event, equal to or perhaps greater than The Ashes, he said.
Australia was bowled for 177 and 91 in its two innings, contributing to India’s 400-run victory in the first Test, which it lost by an innings and 132 runs. In the first two days of the second Test, they performed well, reaching 263 runs in the first innings and nearly gaining a commanding lead before being bowled for 113 runs on Day 3. India secured a 6-0 victory and a commanding 2-0 lead as a result. Since 2015, Australia has not been able to defeat India in a Test series, either at home or abroad.

Highlights from the England vs. South Africa Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 semifinal: Up until South Africa rallied and advanced to the championship game’s final three overs of the innings, England was coasting along in the chase.
Highlights from the England vs. South Africa Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 semifinal: After holding South Africa to 164/4, England was coasting when the final three overs of their innings changed the course of the match. At the end of the 16th over, England had scored 131 runs, and even though South Africa claimed the important wicket of Nat Sciver-Brunt in the 17th, England appeared to be able to continue scoring at the same pace. Ayabonga Khaka, collecting three wickets, bowled what might be remembered as the game-changing over of the tournament.
The victory was subsequently secured by Shabnim Ismail’s dismissal of England captain Heather Knight in the final over. Previously, South Africa’s powerplay inning got off to a poor start, but the openers picked up the pace and put up a stout defence. Ending with a half-century, Laura Wolvaardt’s opening partnership with Tazmin Brits produced 96 runs. With Brits’ second consecutive half-century, who had previously failed to reach 140 in this competition, South Africa grabbed control and was poised to surpass 170.
Following a sensational 19th over from Sophie Ecclestone in which she claimed two wickets, South Africa reached 164/4 after the 20th over went for 18. For the first time ever, South Africa has advanced to the T20 World Cup final, where they will take on the formidable Australia on Sunday.
The change in African soccer
African footballers are used to playing on the world’s football fields with only a handful of elite players who play in the best European leagues. What about the other lesser known players? They are trying to break through by taking side roads.
the results obtained by Morocco will have repercussions and will allow Africa to reap important gains in line with its footballing power.
I think that every African country should take an example from Morocco in the last world cup we saw Morocco go very far in the Competition.
Today we are going to speak mainly about Congo I think that they must begin by investing in the youth infrastructure construction of center there is so much talent in this country it is a pity that there is only one stadium in the capital of Kinshasa as a sports adviser all its young people have a dream is to come to play in Europe but before extinguishing this dream I think that the base must be solid a competition of age must be created for the young people so that it can evolve well from this moment there we will be able to consider to make the necessary (sports adviser, player’s agent) to go and see his young players in order to find the best talents to pass the next step
