He’s a very smart guy. His IQ on the court is amazing.”And if the rumors weren’t enough, Embiid posted a photo on Twitter of him and James with the comment: “Trust The Process??? Always a great time playing against one of the best to ever play the game #summer2018goals.”Philadelphia nearly blew a 13-point lead in the fourth quarter as the Cavs, who never led, got within 95-94 on Kyle Korver’s 3-pointer with 2:25 left. However, the Sixers showed poise down the stretch by scoring the next eight points to seal an impressive win.“We’re proud of the win,” coach Brett Brown said. “Any time you can beat a team LeBron James plays on you must have done something fairly decent. Saric’s 3 really was the back-breaker.”ADVERTISEMENT Tempers flared in the closing seconds when Saric dunked and Cleveland’s Jordan Clarkson threw the ball off his back. Clarkson was ejected, but that didn’t stop players from jawing at each other.Clarkson defended his actions.“If anybody say different, that they wouldn’t have did that, that they’d have did something different, or anything else, they lying,” he said. “Especially if it was at that (part) of the game. They know what’s up. That’s it.”Saric insists he wasn’t trying to embarrass the Cavs.“I was surprised,” he said of Clarkson’s reaction. “We’re NBA players. To be mad about something like that, for me, is a little bit weird, but I want to apologize to the organization, to them and to the fans.”After the final horn, James walked to Philadelphia’s end of the floor and to hug both Simmons and Embiid, embraces that had to make Cleveland fans cringe.James was asked what kind of a matchup problem is the 6-foot-10 Simmons, who added nine rebounds and eight assists.“The same one I bring,” he said. “Power, speed, quickness, size, court awareness. Same one I bring.”SHOW STOPPERJames had a jaw-dropping, behind-the-back dribble in traffic that went between Tristan Thompson’s legs before he scored and was fouled. James looked up and watched the replay before shooting his free throw, but he didn’t know all the details of the play until halftime.“One of my guys from the NBA showed me and I was like, ‘OK, yeah, that’s probably one of the best plays I’ve had in my career,’” he said.SMITH SUSPENDED Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Nueva Ecija warehouse making fake cigarettes raided, 29 Chinese workers nabbed Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Silly or Philly?: LeBron swats talk of Philadelphia visit Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours Philadelphia 76ers’ Joel Embiid, center, from Cameroon, dribbles against Cleveland Cavaliers’ LeBron James and Larry Nance Jr. in the second half of an NBA basketball game, Thursday, March 1, 2018, in Cleveland.

The Christmas season at its peak has resulted in many traffic congestions along the West Demerara Public Road, with lines extending hundreds of metres.On Thursday, several motorists and taxi operators called for better traffic management, especially at the Demerara Harbour Bridge (DHB) and Vreed-en-Hoop junction in the early hours of the day.The line extending beyond Plantain Walk to reach the junctionOne driver told Guyana Times that he spent 35 minutes from Goed Fortuin to the DHB junction, which, in normal circumstances, would have taken just over 10 minutes.This is due to motorists boycotting the lines to use the sidewalk, coupled with an increase in holiday shoppers crowding the streets. However, he believes the situation can be less stressful with intervention from the Guyana Police Force.Joseph Montgomery explained, “Everybody using the same line to come to the junction. Some choose to use the parapet and drive like they crazy until they reach the front while other people still waiting at the back. How is that fair? Tell me”.According to him, those boycotting the legal barrier to use the “fast way” are causing danger to the lives of other road users. It was indicated that on some occasions, Police Officers are stationed to ensure uniformed traffic flow. However, in many scenarios, the junction is left unsupervised, allowing drivers to break the law.Meanwhile, this publication spoke to a taxi driver who insisted that he is losing money from the increased time for one drop.“I wasting more time and gas. Sometimes you waiting in the line with two people. That’s just $200 for one spin for a whole half an hour. It ain’t make sense. Most people staying home cause we ain’t making anything much,” he insisted.On Tuesday, Police Commissioner Leslie James addressed traffic and carnage on the roadways, stating that motorists must develop better attitudes. He said that road users need to change their attitude for there to be a significant reduction in minor, serious and fatal accidents.“We would like to see a change in the attitude of motorists and the way in which they use our roads and they would have heard statements made by the Traffic Chief in that regard, speaking directly to persons who are using the road, who decide on occasion the way in which they would drive or the way in which they would use the road resulting in serious fatalities…It’s almost as if they’re flouting the law,” he cautioned.Since last Sunday, the Force employed a new operation to decreased these numbers and make the roads safer, especially during the holiday season. James said more human resources will be put aside for this until there is a positive change.“We are out there in numbers…We sat and strategized after which we commenced an operation referred to as ‘Operation Safe Roads’…We’ve been doing what we have to do. We’ll continue to do what we have to do. We have increased numbers now following this operation that commenced on Sunday and this will continue until we see a change in the attitude of those using the road,” the Top Cop had stressed.

1 Daniel Agger It feels like Arsenal have been linked with just about every centre-half in the world in the last few weeks.Arsene Wenger has vowed to buy a replacement if Thomas Vermaelen departs as expected – and the rumour mill has been in overdrive with several names a day being mentioned.Daniel Agger is the latest to be linked and it appears there’s plenty of legs in this one. He has been told he can leave Liverpool, he’s a similar player to Vermaelen and Wenger is known to be a big fan.Most Arsenal fans seem keen on the Dane, but I think if we sign the 29-year-old it would be a huge mistake.I like Agger, but he’s not the most solid or reliable centre-back and his injury problems are a big worry. He’s not going to improve at Arsenal and you can just see him getting one bad injury, before quickly ending up becoming dead wood.Let’s face, he loves Liverpool through and through. He doesn’t really want to go and was in tears when asking for a move last week. He’s been forced out and, while his experience would be handy, he’d be arriving on a negative spiral and I doubt he’d be up for the fight of battling Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny for a starting place.I’ve already thrown my weight behind Manchester City’s Matija Nastasic in this column, and I think he’d be great, but if we can’t sign him – Agger shouldn’t be our back up option.Too expensive, too injury prone, too risky; let’s not settle for second best, just because we need to sign somebody.

Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade England’s most successful clubs of the past decade, according to trophies won Chelsea star Eden Hazard believes Maurizio Sarri helps him to enjoy his football, unlike previous bosses Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte.The 27-year-old has two goals and two assists in his opening four games under the new Blues manager and appears to be thriving with his possession-based style of play. Every current Premier League club’s best kit from the past decade Every Championship club’s best signing of the decade, including Taarabt and Dack LATEST FOOTBALL NEWS And the additions of Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic – two accomplished, ball-playing midfielders – appear to have satisfied his wishes.“The big difference is we bring two players – Jorginho and Kovacic – and they are completely different,” he added.“We just try to keep the ball more often and then when we have a chance to score, we need to score.“But when we have more ball we can be more dangerous. We’re playing good football, so we enjoy. I want to keep this momentum.” highlights smart causal After last season’s 1-0 defeat away at Manchester City, Hazard claimed he could’ve played for three hours and not touched the ball, as Conte forced him to chase aerial balls.Mourinho often criticised Hazard for ignoring his defensive responsibilities, but Sarri allows the Belgian to express himself in attacking areas with the ball at his feet.Hazard told Chelsea TV: “I like to have the ball. Not in my own half, but in the last 30 metres.“I like this type of game. It’s completely different than Conte or Mourinho before.“We have more ball so for me it’s not bad.”Hazard, who was heavily-linked with a move to Real Madrid over the summer, previously said he was waiting to see who the club signed before making any decision on his future.
