Bucks top Bulls as Giannis gets 23 in return from sore back

first_imgNo need to wear face masks in Metro Manila, says scientist The reigning MVP had 23 points and 10 rebounds after missing two games with a sore back, and Milwaukee pulled away in the second half for a 123-102 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Monday night.Antetokounmpo, the league’s second-leading scorer with an average of 30.5 points per game entering this one, played only 27 minutes and sat out the final 5 1/2 because of the lopsided score. He was 8 for 14 from the field with six assists.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSAndray Blatche has high praise for teammate Kai SottoSPORTSBig differenceSPORTSAlmazan status stays uncertain ahead of Game 4“We won 30 games before January; It’s cool, but we can always do better,” Antetokounmpo said. “We’ve got to keep improving because the goal is to play late in the season.”Khris Middleton scored 25 points for the Bucks, and Eric Bledsoe had 15 points in 16 minutes after missing the previous eight games with a fractured right leg. “We move way faster with him,” Antetokounmpo said of Bledsoe. “He’s like a sports car. He goes so fast, and we’ve got to follow him. It’s always good to have him back.”Zach LaVine scored 19 points for Chicago but shot just 7 for 23 from the field. Lauri Markkanen and Coby White had 18 points apiece and Wendell Carter Jr. added 10 points and 11 rebounds for the Bulls.“In the first half, I think we were there, but I think in the second half, we weren’t playing our best basketball,” Markkanen said. “We’ve shown we can play with anybody, but obviously we’ve got to do it for 48 minutes to actually win the game.“We can’t have those lapses we did in the third. We’re capable of getting those wins.”Milwaukee jumped out to an 8-0 lead as Chicago missed its first six shots. The Bucks led 31-20 at the end of the first quarter and stretched it to 33-20 early in the second on a basket by Robin Lopez.ADVERTISEMENT NFA assures ample rice supply in ashfall, eruption-affected areas LATEST STORIES But the Bulls — after shooting 9 of 29 in the first — suddenly got hot from behind the 3-point arc. White and Markkanen each had three 3-pointers in the second to trim the Milwaukee advantage. Chicago was 8 for 14 on 3s in the quarter.With just under two minutes left in the first half, White hit a driving scoop off the glass to give the Bulls a 52-51 lead, their first of the game.Antetokounmpo quickly answered with a putback on the other end to put the Bucks back on top. Milwaukee led 55-52 at halftime thanks in part to a 15-0 advantage in free throw attempts (making 12).Any chance of a Chicago upset was quickly dashed in the third. The Bucks opened with a 17-4 run for a 72-56 lead — with Antetokounmpo capping the spurt with a thunderous dunk that drew a loud roar from the United Center crowd.“There’s momentum plays, there’s things that just give your team energy and may be deflating for your opponent,” Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said. “It was great. For him to miss a couple of games and come back and have a dunk like that was impressive.”Milwaukee led 95-77 after three quarters. Kyle Korver hit a 3-pointer 2 1/2 minutes into the fourth for a 105-81 advantage, the Bucks’ biggest of the game.TIP-INSBucks: G Wesley Matthews sat out with a bruised right thigh. “He’s been playing through it and I think it’s at a stage where him not playing is the right move,” Budenholzer said. “Hopefully, it’s just a short-term thing.”Bulls: F Chandler Hutchison missed his 15th straight game with a right shoulder injury. Hutchison has been cleared for contact and is expected to practice with the team on Tuesday. “He’ll have full contact,” coach Jim Boylen said. “I’ll get a chance to watch him play a little bit. We’ll just keep working at it.”DUNK OF THE NIGHTAntetokounmpo’s dunk in the third might have been the knockout punch, but it wasn’t voted dunk of the game in the Bucks locker room. Reserve guard Pat Connaughton took the honors with a flying putback late in the third.“It was for sure Pat,” Bledsoe said. “Giannis, I mean it’s unreal, but we see it. Pat, man, he just comes from out of nowhere and brings the house down.” UP NEXTBucks: Host the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night.Bulls: Host the Utah Jazz on Thursday night.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Giannis Antetokounmpo powers Bucks in bounce back win over Celtics PLAY LIST 02:29Giannis Antetokounmpo powers Bucks in bounce back win over Celtics00:50Trending Articles02:43Philippines make clean sweep in Men’s and Women’s 3×3 Basketball01:05Poor visibility, nakaapekto sa maraming lugar sa Batangas03:028,000 pulis sa Region 4-A, tuloy ang trabaho03:57Phivolcs, nahihirapan sa komunikasyon sa Taal01:04Sold-out: Stores run out of face masks after Taal spews ash01:45Iran police shoot at those protesting plane shootdown01:54MMDA deploys rescue team to Batangas following Taal eruption Thailand reports case of coronavirus from China Microsoft ends free Windows 7 security updates on Tuesday Lava gushes out of Taal Volcano as villagers flee Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo (34) shoots over Chicago Bulls forward Lauri Markkanen (24) during the first half of an NBA basketball game, Monday, Dec. 30, 2019, in Chicago.

Led Zeppelin’s remaining original members Plant, guitarist Jimmy Page and bassist John Paul Jones will headline the concert with late drummer John Bonham’s son, Jason, on drums, organizers said Wednesday. Promoter Harvey Goldsmith said Led Zeppelin would play one show only. The Who’s Pete Townshend, Bill Wyman, Foreigner and young Scottish singer Paolo Nutini will also play at the tribute concert. Proceeds will go to the Ahmet Ertegun Education Fund to establish music scholarships. Led Zeppelin will perform a one-time comeback concert in memory of Ahmet Ertegun, a co-founder of Atlantic Records. The band will perform together for the first time in 19 years Nov. 26 at London’s The O2 venue. Promoters said the concert would pay tribute to Ertegun – the label boss who popularized Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin and Led Zeppelin – who died in December at age 83. “During the Zeppelin years, Ahmet Ertegun was a major foundation of solidarity and accord,” Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant said in a statement. “For us, he was Atlantic Records and remained a close friend and conspirator.” Ertegun, who co-founded the Atlantic Records label with Herb Abramson, signed Plant’s band in 1968 and later snapped up the Rolling Stones. last_img read more

Suspect fighting return to U.S.

first_imgThe suspect who created a national furor after shooting a sheriff’s deputy in 2002 and fled to Mexico is still fighting attempts to send him back to the United States. Armando Garcia, whose real name is Jorge Arroyo Garcia, filed a motion in a Mexican court to suspend the decision to extradite him, according to Ulises Gomez, chief of staff for Javier Potisek, deputy attorney general for Legal and International Affairs in Mexico City. A hearing on the motion was held Sept. 25 in Mexico City. The judge hasn’t yet issued a ruling. “We are confident we will be successful in that case,” Gomez said. His appeal also claimed evidence in the criminal procedure doesn’t meet Mexican law requirements and that international law and the extradition treaty between the United States and Mexico contradicts the country’s constitution. “It doesn’t mean he’s right,” Gomez said, adding they’ve faced these kinds of arguments before. “Nothing unusual. Nothing we are afraid of.” If the judge rules against Garcia, he can appeal the decision to the Mexican Supreme Court. But he would have to come up with an argument the high court hasn’t looked at, Gomez said. He said the argument the extradition treaty is in violation of the Mexican Constitution has already been addressed by the Supreme Court. “If this person doesn’t appeal, we can send him back,” Gomez said. Mexico traditionally doesn’t return suspects with ties to its country unless the death penalty is taken off the table. A 2001 ruling by the Mexican Supreme Court that life in prison was cruel and unusual punishment also banned the extradition of suspects facing life in prison. The ruling outraged prosecutors, law enforcement and victims’ families in the United States since it made extraditing murder suspects who fled across the border impossible. March’s killing became a national example of such cases. But in November, Mexico’s highest court reversed the ruling, which then paved the way for Garcia and other fugitive suspects to be sent back. Already, 45 fugitives have been returned through extradition this year, surpassing the record set last year of 41, said Jaclyn Lesch, spokeswoman with the Justice Department, which handles extraditions. She said that number is expected to grow. Lesch said they have no way to quantify how long it takes to extradite a suspect from Mexico. “It is up to the courts and varies by case,” she said. Gomez said so far this year, Mexico has extradited 56 people to America, Spain and other European countries. “That’s a lot of people and a good answer to people’s \ that we are protecting criminals. We are finding them and sending them back,” he said. Local officials are anxiously awaiting word on Garcia’s fate. There’s no way to predict how long it will take to extradite Garcia, said Janice Maurizi, a director with the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office who is handling the March case. In extraditions, she said the foreign government handles the proceedings. “Once the decision is made, they’ll notify us,” Maurizi said. Prosecutors have charged Garcia with March’s murder, two attempted murders in Baldwin Park in 2002 and possessing illegal weapons. District Attorney Steve Cooley has said he will seek life in prison without the possibility of parole for Garcia. David March’s father, John March, doesn’t think about Garcia. “Who would you rather think about? Your son you’re proud of or a four-time deported drug dealer? I would rather think of my son,” March said. “Do I want him \ to face justice? You bet.” John March holds onto his son’s handcuffs for the day when Garcia returns to the United States for prosecution. “When he gets off the plane he will be met by Cooley and \ Baca, who will handcuff him in Dave’s handcuffs,” March said. ruby.gonzales@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2718160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The 29-year-old is the prime suspect in the April 29, 2002, fatal shooting of Deputy David March during a traffic stop in Irwindale. Detectives say Garcia fled to Mexico hours after the shooting. He eluded capture for nearly four years but was arrested Feb. 23 as he came out of an uncle’s house in Tonala, Jalisco, Mexico. Garcia remains in the custody of Mexican authorities. On June 26, a Mexican judge approved the request by the United States to send back Garcia. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which needed to have the judicial ruling, granted the extradition July 28, Gomez said. Garcia wants the courts to block the extradition, saying he wasn’t allowed to offer evidence in the extradition process to show he shouldn’t be sent back. last_img read more

21st-century South Africans need to leave a lasting legacy

first_imgYFM DJ Moeti Tsiki, also known as Mo Flava, facilitated the dialogueIn 1976, young South Africans came together to play a pivotal role in highlighting the injustices of apartheid; they risked their lives squaring up to a heartless regime and secured a place in history for their role in liberating the country. They left a lasting legacy. Now, the young people of this generation are looking for ways to make their mark on South Africa’s history.Brand South Africa and the Sowetan, through the Play Your Part/Sowetan Dialogues, invited youngsters to The Nelson Mandela Foundation in Houghton on 18 June to discuss the issue. The event coincided closely with 16 June, the 38-year anniversary of the Soweto Student Uprising, in which school children protested the introduction of Afrikaans as a language of instruction in schools.YFM DJ Moeti Tsiki, also known as Mo Flava, facilitated the dialogue and panellists included Simamkele Dlakavu, a One Young World Ambassador and producer on e.tv’s The Big Debate; Neliswa Fente, co-founder of SpringAGE, a youth-led innovation company; and Nzinga Qunta, an ANN7 TV presenter and entrepreneur.Tsiki kicked off the dialogue asking, “[In 1976] Young people with no guidance from political parties managed to organise themselves and go against the apartheid government. After 20 years of freedom is the youth of today, who don’t share the same struggles, able to leave a lasting legacy with no common goal?”The answers were enlightening.Panelists Neliswa Fente, co-founder of SpringAGE, a youth-led innovation company; and Nzinga Qunta, an ANN7 TV presenter and entrepreneurINTER-GENERATIONAL DIALOGUEFente expressed the need for “intergenerational dialogue” for today’s youth to learn from their forebears; she said, “What we need is inter-generational dialogues that will see youngsters interacting with older people … with both learning about each other’s struggles and not the other believing they know better.”Fente represented South Africa at the One Young World Conference in Zurich in 2011 and in 2013 she sat as an Advisory Board Member for One Young World. She is also a South African Spark Change Maker for 2013 and was named one of South Africa’s Top 20 Inspiring Young people of 2013 by Youth Village.One Young World is a group of the world’s brightest young people solving the world’s problems.She added that young people need deliberate spaces to collaborate to reach their goals.STRUCTURAL IMBALANCEDlakavu introduced her thoughts with a statistic, saying that more than 80% of SA youth are not involved in civic organisations and lack organisational skills.She added that “Structural and infrastructure issues hold youth back from fulfilling their potential, but many persevere and make it.”She believes that a common goal brought the children together in 1976, but that today young people live in an “individualistic world” that advocates personal achievements, making it difficult to have common goals.To address this, Dlakavu believes that youngsters need to have the “spirit of service” where they take time to do for others at no benefit to themselves.“Before the elections we were in Marikana and I was touched when young people had organised themselves in groups and tutored each other because they had lost a lot of schooling time …  instead of sitting at home complaining they decided to do it for themselves and educate one another,” she said.She added that young people are not short of role models and concluded by saying, “We need to move beyond selfishness and towards being of service to others.”The latest in the series of dialogues asked South Africa’s young people to consider the legacy they want to leave for their childrenSTART WITH YOUR PASSIONQunta believes that for youngsters to leave a lasting legacy they should follow their passions and forget about the grand gestures.She described working with volunteer organisation Cheese Kids for South Africa, where the founders also followed their passions; she said, “When Cheese Kids for South Africa was started we were at a garage with [founder] Shaka Sisulu and decided to go paint an orphanage for the day.”Qunta believes that to make the country a better one, all who live in it need to contribute; “If you’re living in South Africa during this democracy and you’re not doing anything to extend yourself beyond your family and friends, then you are not doing anything to make this a better country.”She also addressed youngsters’ sometimes unrealistic expectations, saying, “Another thing the youth of today need to do is forget about all the glamorous careers, because who will build roads and infrastructure if we are all DJs?”“There is a bit of swag in being a farmer,” she said, to much laughter.She concluded talking about her own passions and goals, saying she plays her role in improving South Africa by being in the media, distributing information, and added that in order to leave a lasting legacy, youngsters need to identify their passion to know where to play their roles.last_img read more
