Brown scores 21 as Celtics pound Bulls without Irving

The Celtics immediately took control, building a 37-point lead on the way to their fifth win in six games.“Kyrie didn’t play last time (and) they felt like they could beat us and they did beat us by 20-plus points,” Brown said. “Coming into this game we had the mindset we needed to get out on them early and we did that.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkJayson Tatum scored 14, while Al Horford and Terry Rozier added 13 points apiece for Boston.“We were ready to play,” coach Brad Stevens said. “Our defense was really good in the first half, obviously. I thought we were really flying around, covering for one another, playing the right way. And then we were aggressive in taking the ball to the basket. That opened up some 3s.” This one got out of hand almost as soon as the opening tip.After losing to the NBA-leading Rockets on Saturday by three points, Boston led 55-29 at halftime. Brown had 10 points as the Celtics raced out to a 26-5 lead. He nailed a 3 and threw down a one-handed jam before Horford’s steal and dunk made it a 21-point game with 4:21 left in the first quarter.IRVING UPDATEStevens wasn’t sure if Irving will be ready to play at Minnesota on Thursday.“It doesn’t sound like it’s a long-term concern, but certainly, it could last through the week,” Stevens said.With Irving out, the Celtics opted to put Shane Larkin in the lineup rather than Rozier or Marcus Smart. That was because Stevens wanted to keep the second unit together.Larkin had nine points and four assists in his first start since the 2015-16 season with Brooklyn. He made all three of his field goals — each of them 3-pointers.“He was great,” Stevens said. “It’s one of the things we talked about — who should start? We trust all three of those guys. Then it becomes who you want to play off the bench.

Vendors complain of dysfunctional static compactor at Stabroek Market

first_imgVendors at the Stabroek Market, one of the busiest in the country, are complaining of the dysfunctional compactor that is unable to properly collect their waste.The vendors recently reached out to Guyana Times to complain that they are forced to work in a filthy and smelly environment, with flies and other pests frequently bothering them and their efforts to make sales.This publication understands that the compactor has been down for a few weeks, hence the buildup of garbage at the market.The drains of the Stabroek Market environs are lined with garbage, while the bins overflow with sameDuring a recent visit to the area, a vegetable vendor whose only name was given as Deborah said she is forced to work in the smelly environs to make ends meet, since she is a single mother. She said the garbage piles and stench run customers away, ultimately affecting her profits. Already, the single mother complained, she has had to thrown away spoilt vegetables on several occasions.Situated not far from where the static compactor had been located are food stalls which have been feeling the brunt of the effects as well. A food vendor who asked to remain anonymous said she is tired of working under such conditions, although they are made to pay heavy fees for using the market’s stalls.She said City Council needs to a better job, and make provision for such events.When contacted, Solid Waste Director at the Mayor and City Council (M&CC), Walter Narine, explained thus, “We have a static compactor that (does) collect the garbage there, but the compactor is down”.According to him, it has been just over one week since the compactor has been down.Every day, he said, workers are sent to the market area to clean the environment, but this task is very difficult as the market generates a lot of waste.He added that City Hall has been collecting the garbage via bins, and asked that the vendors be patient as the M&CC works to rectify the situation.Georgetown has long been plagued by the issue of pollution and proper waste disposal, and the M&CC itself has been facing some challenges in this regard.Only last November, financial strain at City Hall once again forced principal collectors, Puran Brothers and Cevon’s Waste Management, to withdraw their disposal services.Puran Brothers and Cevon’s Waste Management had said they were owed some $150 million by City Hall. This debt was said to have been outstanding since the second quarter of 2018. Puran Brothers Disposal Service was owed $73 million, while Cevon’s Waste Management was owed $75 million. It was only in March of this year that the debt to those contractors was fully paid off, after Government was again forced to intervene.The Business Development Supervisor of Cevon’s Waste Management told Guyana Times that the respective sums of money due were disbursed by the Communities Ministry to his company and Puran Brothers Disposal Services.The M&CC had hired five smaller contractors after Puran and Cevon’s had taken strike action for their monies. Those contractors are still operating in the city and its environs.last_img read more

Northern Ireland 2-1 Finland: Lafferty double sinks Fins

first_img1 Northern Ireland took a giant step towards Euro 2016 qualification with a 2-1 victory over Finland at Windsor Park.Kyle Lafferty scored twice in the hosts’ impressive win, making him the nation’s second highest goalscorer behind David Healy, which sends them five points clear of third-placed Hungary and eight points ahead of Finland.With 24 teams set to compete at the tournament next summer, a top-two finish would be enough for automatic qualification while third is worth a play-off tie.Michael O’Neill’s side made a nervy start as Teemu Pukki tested Roy Carroll with a close range effort, but Northern Ireland responded with several attacks of their own.Chris Baird’s header was ruled out on nine minutes, before Lafferty’s angled volley arrowed into the bottom corner mid-way through the first half.Then, five minutes later, the former Rangers forward doubled his tally with a cushioned header after neat interplay between Conor McLaughlin and Jamie Ward.An abject Finland then provided a tense finale when Berat Sadik profited from Carroll’s wayward parry to tap in.But Northern Ireland held on for all three points in what could be a defining game in their attempt for qualification.

‘Chelsea should replace Hazard with Zaha’

first_img LATEST TRANSFER NEWS The Manchester United move came too early in Zaha’s career and there is a sense of unfinished business. He wants to show the world he belongs with the best.Let him prove it. Hazard would leave a void at Chelsea 4 4 targets Zaha offers a similar style of play to Hazard 4 RANKED The biggest market value losers in 2019, including Bale and ex-Liverpool star targets Chelsea would get their edge-of-the-seat fix, their je ne sais quoi.Zaha battled relegation last season and his team enjoy far less possession than Chelsea. Imagine what he might do supplied by Jorginho and N’Golo Kante, in an expressive Maurizio Sarri team?£70m, the rumoured asking price, buys you a ready-made Premier League entertainer and, at 25-years-old, one that could become extraordinary given the right tools.Chelsea, if they fail to cling onto Hazard, should fill the void of excitement left behind and accept that to replace everything else would be impossible. Zaha does not mind close attention Cavani ‘agrees’ to join new club and will complete free transfer next summer Tony Cascarino backs Everton to sign two strikers for Carlo Ancelotti Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade center_img LIVING THE DREAM Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Ndidi bid, targets named, Ozil is ‘skiving little git’ IN DEMAND Kevin De Bruyne ‘loves Man City and wants to keep winning’, reveals father They will not find another Hazard and the prospect of his departure strikes genuine fear into Blue hearts.His transcendental power to thrill from the depths of pragmatism has made him a Chelsea legend in his own right: the most supremely talented player the club has ever seen.But the true beauty of the Belgian is not in his match-winning capabilities; it comes through the simple pleasure of watching him. The oohs and ahs. The breathtaking moments of magic.It’s the Ronaldinho approach. Hazard reminds Chelsea fans that football is supposed to be fun, when at times it’s easy to forget.Let’s get one thing straight: Wilfried Zaha is not as good as Hazard. Only a handful of unattainable players are.But all of the above also applies to his relationship with Crystal Palace. 4 Man United joined by three other clubs in race for Erling Haaland Where every Premier League club needs to strengthen in January How do you replace the irreplaceable?Real Madrid could turn to Eden Hazard to answer that very question and thereby force it on Chelsea. Statistically, Zaha is the closest thing to Hazard in the Premier League. A fundamentally similar player in different context.Being the second-most fouled man in England, Zaha can empathise with the cynical, tactical attention Hazard receives.The Belgian is unique in the way he thrives off being roughed up, winning free-kicks for his team in key areas and making himself impossible to dispossess.It’s a role any winger arriving from Europe would take time to learn, or perhaps falter with, but not Zaha. You can hack away all you like, he will still go past you.The Ivorian is the second-best dribbler in the Premier League (behind you-know-who). They play in the same spirit: stacking up their YouTube highlights reel, living for the nutmeg. LATEST Hazard’s main objective is to excite moving on REVEALED last_img read more
