LOS ANGELES – Before he left the locker room after Wednesday’s loss to the Portland Trail Blazers, Kobe Bryant offered the Lakers’ only exit strategy from a six-game losing streak, saying, “You have to try to will yourself out of the stretch.” It fell to Bryant to provide the will Friday night as the Lakers broke through for their first win since Feb. 5, beating the Boston Celtics 122-96. No team knows long losing streaks quite like the Celtics, who ended an 18-game skid with a victory over Milwaukee before the all-star break. But Boston (13-41) has since lost three games on this Western Conference trip. The Lakers scored the last nine points of the first half to take a 65-54 halftime lead. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The Lakers led by as many as 27 points in the fourth quarter against a Celtics team that has lost 21 of 22 games. In only 31 minutes, Bryant finished with 38 points – 22 of which came in a spectacular first quarter – connected on 5-of-7 three-pointers, found his teammates to the tune of nine assists and matched a season-high with five steals. After a long practice Thursday, Bryant summed up how the Lakers could will themselves out of the losing streak, the longest ever for a Phil Jackson-coached team. “You just have to accept the fact that you’re going to go into a game and you’re going to win no matter what,” Bryant said. “No matter what the circumstances, no matter the injuries, no matter the foul trouble, no matter the shots not going down.” The Lakers were able to hold Boston to just 66 points in the final three quarters and got contributions from Bryant to the last players on the bench. In fact, they might have sold some programs when seldom-used guards Shammond Williams and Aaron McKie played in the first half. For the Lakers to start playing for one another, Jackson apparently felt the need to play everybody. All 11 players got in the game and scored for the Lakers. McKie hit a fourth-quarter jumper and finished a baseline drive for his four points. Williams finished with six points and four assists in 19 minutes.
0Shares0000AFC Leopards head coach watches as his players warm up before their CAF Confederation Cup tie against Fosa Juniors of Madagascar at the Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega on February 11, 2017. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 12- AFC Leopards head coach Robert Matano went ballistic after his charges produced a shockingly underwhelming performance against Malagasy side Fosa Juniors in their 1-1 CAF Confederations Cup preliminary round draw on Sunday.Matano, not one known to shy away from expressing his feelings and disappointments has now demanded improvement from his players, giving an indirect warning that those not ready to pull their socks will watch proceedings from the terraces. “The players didn’t measure up to expectation. We have been here for four days and the players only have themselves to blame. They didn’t play according to plan and the way I expected them to play,” Matano said after the match.He stretched in his disappointment into the dressing room after the final whistle, clearly stating to the players they let themselves down especially on an evening they played in their ‘traditional home-ground’.Matano was forced to make changes five minutes to the break pulling out Aziz Okaka and Henry Uche who were appalling in their performance and Matano was irate that their under-performance caused him to change his plans.AFC Leopards players walk into the pitch for their CAF Confederation Cup tie against Fosa Juniors of Madagascar at the Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega on February 11, 2017. PHOTO/Timothy Olobulu“We were sloppy from the start and we conceded a very easy goal because of a defensive lapse. Our defence was scattered, our midfield was not there, our striking was poor with no organization, no urgency and no constructive moves,” Matano further fumed.“The players just didn’t measure up and without those changes I don’t think we would have matched that team,” he noted.He has now vowed to make a raft of changes for the return leg in Mahajanga on February 21 as he seeks to ensure his side progresses to the next round despite conceding a potentially dangerous away goal.Either a high scoring draw or outright win will see Leopards progress to the next round.“We are going to win, you just take my word,” Matano, with a rare smile on a frustrating evening signed off.If they successfully edge out a good result in Madagascar, AFC will face the winner between Ngazi Sport of the Comoros and AS Port Louis of Mauritius in the first round next month.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
AC Milan star Jeremy Menez Bordeaux are on the verge of signing Liverpool target Jeremy Menez from AC Milan.The 29-year-old forward has been on the Reds’ radar for the past 12 months and the Merseyside club attempted to sign him last summer.However, it has been suggested that their interest has cooled since Jurgen Klopp took over, with the new boss keen to pursue other targets.And that has allowed Bordeaux to agree a deal with Milan to take the Frenchman back to his homeland.The former Paris Saint-Germain ace, who started just two Serie A games last term, is set to sign a three-year deal with Bordeuax although it has been reported that Milan will still pay his wages for the next six months. 1

The baby was born in Los Angeles, but the exact location was not disclosed. It’s the first child for Holmes, 27. Cruise, 43, has an adopted daughter and son from his marriage to Nicole Kidman. Details surrounding the birth, which was planned under the tenets of the Church of Scientology as a silent procedure, weren’t disclosed. It was just about a year ago that Cruise’s romance with Holmes became a world sensation. The TomKitten has arrived. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, the high-profile pair dubbed TomKat by the media, had a baby girl on Tuesday, said Cruise spokesman Arnold Robinson. The baby, named Suri, weighed 7 pounds, 7 ounces and measured 20 inches long, he said. “Both mother and daughter are doing well,” Robinson said in a prepared statement. Coincidentally, Brooke Shields also gave birth Tuesday to a baby girl, her second. The actress and her husband, TV writer-producer Chris Henchy, welcomed Grier Hammond Henchy, who weighed 7 pounds, according to spokeswoman Pat Kingsley. Shields and Cruise had a public spat last year after the “Mission: Impossible” star criticized the actress for taking antidepressants following the birth of her first child. Appearing on the “Today” show, Cruise said there was no such thing as chemical imbalances that need to be corrected with drugs, and that depression could be treated with exercise and vitamins.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
