Face for Toronto and cross for Phoenix on the day tribute to Luther King

first_imgPhoto: Reuters In Atlanta, the Raptors let out a wide advantage and had to wait at the last minute to resolve their victory over the Hawks with prominence for Marc Gasol (14 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists) and Serge Ibaka (8 points, 7 rebounds and 1 Stole).In fact, the Canadian team dominated for 14 in the absence of just over two minutes (100-114), but Trae Young, who left another sensational performance with 42 points and 15 assists, led the unexpected load of the hosts in the last plays .With the local star at full capacity, Atlanta reached two when there were 34 seconds left (113-115), but the Raptors prevented the comeback from finishing thanks to five points followed by Fred VanVleet. The base (20) and Norman Powell (27) were the best visitors at the State Farm Arena.A similar script was lived in Phoenix, where the Suns lost 16 in the last quarter (87-103) and ended up having a triple on the horn to take the victory against the Spurs.Ricky Rubio (15 points, 9 assists) led this comeback attempt along with DeAndre Ayton (25 and 12 rebounds) and Devin Booker (37), who could not score the last pitch that would have triggered the euphoria at the Talking Stick Resort Arena. Derrick White (25) and Brin Forbes (24) were the best in Texans.In addition, the Hernangómez brothers again enjoyed little prominence with their teams. Thus Willy added 8 points and 2 rebounds in 12 minutes in another overwhelming defeat of the Hornets, while Juancho captured 1 rebound in 6 minutes in Minnesota, where the Nuggets signed a worked victory. The Spanish representation in the NBA has lived a night of contrasts with the victories of Toronto Raptors against Atlanta Hawks (117-122) and Denver Nuggets against Minnesota Timberwolves (100-107) and the defeats of Phoenis Suns against San Antonio Spurs ( 118-120) and Charlotte Hornets against Orlando Magic (83-106) on the day honoring Martin Luther King.center_img Ibaka and Gasol pull the car in Toronto’s win over AtlantaRicky brushes the ‘double-double’ but the Suns fall against San AntonioAnother discreet night for the Hernangómez with Denver and Charlottelast_img read more

All the lives of Vrsaljko

first_imgBut Sime still had a life at Atlético, although nobody expected it (almost as few as the second part of Carrasco, a trip to Atlético three years ago). In December he took a flight to Madrid with a one-way ticket. His recovery had fringes left and he would cut them at Cerro del Espino, his knee getting stronger, his muscles more in tune. Vrsaljko training with the recuperators in the neighboring field, Vrsaljko passing the group, Vrlsajko, suddenly, turned into news again: that Vrsaljko was suddenly a starter against Leganés, eleven months after his last official match. And, hey, he did it. Yes, he looked a little lacking in rhythm, but now, he takes that, and what is not immediate, he already had: the coupling to the Cholo system, its internalized game in the legs. The following week it was in the news again: it started again. In a derby, against Madrid, Santiago Bernábeu. And the games were happening and it was becoming routine. Vrsaljko ahead of Arias in the lineups, in the team. An Arias who in the last month has only known the stands. A Vrsaljko who has already played 482 minutes and climbing. The footballer who is currently ahead in that ranking is precisely the Colombian, 869 ‘, but while one is stranded, he was one of Cholo’s five discards for the game against Anfield, the other increasingly counts. In the last two league games he was a substitute, but in Liverpool he was one of the Cholo men who played, protagonist of that second part of a film that no one expected but that can hold great minutes, when the competitions return, if they return this season. And suddenly, Sime Vrsaljko. As if the second, or third, part of a film were involved, the Croatian lives ‘a second youth’ in Atlético. Second and unexpected. Because the right-back was a footballer who in July, when the squad was composed, was not in any plan. His de facto inclusion in the Champions League took place in September and made headlines: the Croatian, seriously injured in one knee during his loan, forced to buy, at Inter Milan had run out of a team. The Italian team did not execute that option, it was returning it, while the first balls of the 2019-20 began to roll, the right-back was in CroatiaRecovering from an injury that still had months to go, Trippier filled the headlines and accolades and Arias responded when he played. The Vrsaljko option seemed far, far away, buried in those seasons with the shirt with scratches ripping the red and white stripes.last_img read more

‘Collateral’ problem in Madrid

first_imgThe coronavirus crisis has stopped football, but not activity at Real Madrid. The players, confined to their homes, strictly follow the personalized exercise program designed by Gregory Dupont; Zidane and his staff work electronically and are in contact with the players; Y Little by little, they think about the movements to be made for the next season (the club expects at least five sales, as reported this Saturday by AS). Part of the planning was conditioned to the final result of the knockout round of the Champions League against City, where Madrid had to overcome a 1-2, but the pandemic has changed the scenario and modified the times. However, there are issues that the club is aware of that they will have to address in the face of next season: the Bale case, the scorer issue and clearing up the unknown on the sides. The latter will be one of the cases to be resolved in Madrid: With two fixes (Carvajal and Mendy), four men compete for two holes (Achraf, Odriozola, Marcelo and Reguilón). The one who has the most difficult continuity is Odriozola (24 years old). Zidane put him on the market this winter despite being a bet from the club, which paid for him 35 million in 2018. In season and a half, he played 27 games scored a goal, but did not earn Zidane’s confidence. This season he only played five games in white and the defeat against Mallorca signaled him. With a contract until 2024, he was transferred to Bayern until the end of the season, but in Germany things have not been better. He unintentionally injured his partner Perisic and Flick, his coach, has him ostracized: He has only given him 70 minutes in ten games, and 63 of them were due to injuries from Niklas Süle and Javi Martínez. Zidane does not have him in principle and Madrid must find him a destination … On the right side, Carvajal (28 years old) is immovable but the question arises in his rival for the position. Since January, it has been Militao who has occasionally played there with questionable performance. Madrid transferred Odriozola to Bayern in the winter market and Achraf has been in Dortmund for a year and a half. In them both is the question. In the club they are clear that the Moroccan, 21, is already a player made for the rigor of the Bernabéu after two years cooking with great success at Borussia Dortmund (He has played 65 games and 5,249 minutes, has scored ten goals and given 17 assists and has won a German Super Cup). They want me to come back to stay. The player, for his part, does not hide that his desire is to succeed in white, but he prioritizes playing. “I cannot lie, of course I would like to succeed in Madrid, it is my home. But if not, I will try to succeed elsewhere. That is my dream”he said in AS. When his loan ends this year, Madrid and Achraf (their contract ends in 2021) will sit down to talk to make a decision. Zidane holds him in high esteem and understands that he would have a place in his next project, but he must convince him (he has offers on the table) that, despite being Carvajal, he will have an important role. His versatility (he can play on the left and the winger) undoubtedly works in his favor.center_img The other wing also throws up questions. Mendy (24 years old), signed this year from Lyon at the request of Zidane and Bettoni, has earned the coach’s trust and the Bernabéu’s respect for his defensive solvency. He arrived to oxygenate Marcelo (31), whom Zidane was determined to recover, but he has ended up playing the most demanding games precisely because of his seriousness at work back. The unknown is to know what will happen to the Brazilian next season (he still has two contract left). With a discreet performance again this season and with several stoppages due to injury, his future is a mystery. The player has stated on numerous occasions that he wants to retire at Concha Espina, but also that he does not want to be a burden. As reported this Saturday by AS, a joint decision will be made with him based on what his role in the project will be. If Marcelo remains a year in white, that would close the doors to Reguilón (23 years old), side of the quarry that this season has taken flight on his loan at Sevilla. In fact, the youth squad, who signed a year on loan, no longer rules out continuing another campaign in Nervión: “Here I feel very loved.” Madrid have great faith in him, that is why they do not consider a transfer and instead continue on the path of transfer. Everything will depend on what happens with Marcelo’s future …last_img read more

21st Century Cracks: Pacheco, Xabi’s outstanding student

first_imgJon Pacheco (Elizondo, 2001) is an elegant left-handed center back for Real Sociedad who, at just 18 years old (now 19) he earned the confidence of Xabi Alonso to be indisputable as a starter in the subsidiary, who plays in Segunda B, despite the fact that by age he could still compete in the Youth category. In a position in defense as demanding as his, where experience counts more than in other demarcations, the young defender the responsibility of a category like the Second B has not weighed him, where he faces experienced forwards with many hours of flight behind him.Real Sociedad, aware of the enormous potential of this elegant 1.84m defender, made a strong commitment to it last summer: renewed until 2025. A necessary effort if they wanted him to continue in San Sebastían, because Barcelona was behind him. Jose Mari Bakero, a good connoisseur of the Real youth academy, was in talks with his family last year to try to recruit him for the Blaugrana subsidiary. Barça, however, encountered an insurmountable obstacle: the 30 million of its clause. La Real, far from negotiating with Barcelona (something that was not on the table), He negotiated with the player to extend his contract, something they finally got.To his good physique, Pacheco adds great ball handling. His good hitting with his left leg, both short and long, allows him to be very precise in the start from behind, one of the virtues that most attracted Barcelona’s interest. To these technical capacities is added the trade and toughness that he is acquiring with his participation in Segunda B, where he has already played 20 games this year. All this in preparation for their jump to the first team, which will not take long to occur …last_img read more
