Warriors vs Hornets

Warriors vs Hornets : Stephen Curry’s homecomings have generally been fruitful affairs for the Golden State Warriors (39-7) over the past few seasons, and Wednesday night was no exception. Two nights after suffering a surprising defeat in Miami, the Golden State Warriors (38-7) visit the Charlotte Hornets (23-22) at 8:00 p.m. Eastern. As one would expect Steve Kerr’s team is favored

Since his college days at Texas, Tucker has been relentlessly searching for sneakers. As he told The Undefeated over All-Star Weekend, he got his start on eBay and never looked back.

“I actually went to the bank and got a debit card so I could get an eBay account and buy shoes,” Tucker said. “My first debit card … was because of eBay, so I could buy shoes.”

Though he laughs now, the passion still hasn’t faded. While most assume the reigning sneaker champ has every last model he has ever wanted, they would be almost right. He recently and finally tracked down a near-mythical pair of the “Tokyo” Air Jordan 5 that have long evaded him, and Tucker excitedly wore them in the very first Houston Rockets game after the All-Star break.

Made in 2011 in limited quantities for the launch of Jordan Brand’s T23 boutique in Tokyo, the yellow nubuck shoes were originally thought to only have released in up to a size 13. The unique negative space “23” logo along the heel, designed by Nike’s Mark Smith, only added to the appeal.

“I’ve been looking for those for years!” texted Tucker. “They said no [size] 14s were made, but they made a couple samples and these were Ray Allen’s.”

Since debuting his second Jordan signature sneaker in early January, Oklahoma City Thunder All-Star Russell Westbrook has been hijacking the main stage that is the arena entryway to unveil his latest themed editions on a nightly basis. He has coordinated a construction worker outfit with a neon and orange colorway, hauled in Super Soaker-inspired packaging for a linking colorway and even had a special “Bear Jordan” edition drafting off of a teddy bear and a Valentine’s chocolate box.

His latest stunt featured unkempt flowing orange hair along the box lid and a design inspired by the shorts of none other than Chuckie Finster, the lovable cartoon character from the 1990s show “Rugrats.” Westbrook later took the floor in a colorway bringing the theme full circle, with hits of orange, blue and purple throughout, and Chuckie’s shorts pattern along the collar.

Fellow Jordan signature athlete Chris Paul also has been ramping up his themed colorways this season, unveiling a new pair of his eleventh model inspired by Fred Flintstone. Worn during Houston’s impressive short-handed victory over the Golden State Warriors, Paul poured in 23 points with 17 assists in the black-and-orange tunic-inspired printed pair. Fred’s trademark light blue tie came to life along the shoe’s forefoot strap, and according to CP3, “The Flintstones” edition is just a taste of what’s to come.

“I got some fun ones coming out around the playoffs and through the summer,” Paul said. “A few shoes paying homage to some of my favorite TV shows and stuff like that. I probably can’t tell you everything, but we got some fun stuff coming.”

Elsewhere in the league, players got into the school spirit. Golden State All-Star Kevin Durant donned a burnt-orange pair of his KD 11s made for his beloved Texas Longhorns, while Philadelphia 76ers small forward Jimmy Butler honored Tomball High School atop the heel of his latest team Jordan sneakers. Miami Heat forward Derrick Jones Jr. broke out a rare LeBron 6 originally made for New York’s Christ The King in 2008; while the Pennsylvania native didn’t attend the Queens-based private school, the decade-old pair remains one of the more exclusive and rare LeBron school editions of the era.

NEW YORK — The New York Knicks beat the San Antonio Spurs at home Sunday night to avoid the wrong kind of NBA history.

The Knicks’ 130-118 victory snapped an 18-game home losing streak. Had New York lost Sunday, the club would have tied the 1993-94 Dallas Mavericks for the longest home losing streak in NBA history.

Damyean Dotson led the Knicks with 27 points, hitting eight 3-pointers. Dennis Smith Jr. had 19 points and 13 assists and Mitchell Robinson added 15 points, 14 rebounds and 5 blocks off the bench.

New York (12-48) last won at home Dec. 1.

Earlier in the season, the Knicks lost a franchise-record 18 consecutive games.

The club hopes to use a top draft pick in June to further its rebuild. Per the new lottery odds this season, the three teams with the worst records will share a 14 percent chance of getting the No. 1 overall pick. The Knicks enter play Monday with the second-worst record in the NBA, two games behind Cleveland (14-46). The Phoenix Suns (11-50) have the league’s worst mark.

In addition to having a top draft pick, New York also projects to have $70 million in cap space this summer — enough to sign two max free agents.

The San Antonio Spurs play the seventh game of their monumental eight-game Rodeo Road Trip on Sunday when they visit the struggling New York Knicks. Tipoff from Madison Square Garden is at 7:30 p.m. ET. San Antonio is 1-5 on the trip and has slid to seventh place in the Western Conference, while the Knicks are in dire straits after losing their franchise-record 18th straight home game on Friday to Minnesota. Bookmakers list San Antonio as an 8.5-point favorite. The Over-Under, or total number of points Vegas thinks will be scored, is 224 in the latest Spurs vs. Knicks odds, up from an open of 221.5. Before you make any Spurs vs. Knicks picks and NBA predictions, see what the SportsLine Projection Model has to say.

This model, which simulates every game 10,000 times, is crushing its NBA picks. It entered Week 19 of the 2018-19 NBA season with a sterling 217-164 record on all top-rated picks, returning more than $4,000 to anybody following them. And it has been particularly red-hot on its A-rated NBA picks against the spread, entering Week 19 on a blistering 44-30 run. Anybody who has followed it is way up.

Now the model has dialed in on Spurs vs. Knicks. We can tell you it is leaning under, but its much stronger pick is against the spread, saying one side cashes in nearly 60 percent of simulations. That one is available exclusively at SportsLine.

The model is well aware of the Spurs’ incredible offensive efficiency. They rank third in the NBA in that category, with DeMar DeRozan (21.4 points per game, 6.2 assists per game) and LaMarcus Aldridge (20.7, 9.0 rebounds per game) leading six players who average double-figures in scoring. San Antonio, which is tied with Utah at 33-27 but holds the tiebreaker for the No. 7 seed, has everything to play for, while the Knicks appear to be tanking. The Spurs have circled this game as a must-win, knowing they visit a much better Brooklyn team on Monday to conclude the trip.

But just because the Spurs are loaded offensively doesn’t mean they’ll cover a huge number on the road Sunday.

The model also knows New York has played respectably in its last two games, beating the Hawks by 15 and falling to Minnesota by 11. The Knicks are facing a Spurs team that’s covered only one of its last nine outings.

Rookie guard Allonzo Trier continues to improve, having scored at least 19 points in two of his last three outings. Dunk contest participant Dennis Smith Jr. has dished out seven assists in each of his last two games. The Knicks are determined not to make dubious NBA history with another home loss.

2018 saw local favourite Juan Martin Del Potro take down South Africa’s best ever player Kevin Anderson in 2 straight sets. This year Del Potro is back but he’ll have some stiff competition.

The tournament has traditionally attracted many of the greatest names in tennis with winners including Thomas Muster, Carlos Moya, Rafa Nadal and David Ferrer when it was played on clay. Since making the move to become a hard court tournament in 2014 Grigor Dimitorv, Dominic Thiem and Sam Querrey have all triumphed. The 2019 entry list lives up to this billing with Rafa Nadal, Marin Cilic, Juan Martin del Potro and Stan Wawrinka all entered so far. It promises to be a cracking event.

ACAPULCO, Mexico – No.1 seed Sloane Stephens, returning to action for the first time since the Australian Open, is the only former winner in this year’s Abierto Mexicano TELCEL presentado por HSBC draw, and opens her campaign against Istanbul and Québec City champion Pauline Parmentier for the second year in a row.

The American took home her third career title in Acapulco in 2016 and owns a 3-1 head-to-head lead over Parmentier, including a 6-4, 6-0 opening win here last year en route to the quarterfinals. Two-time defending champion Lesia Tsurenko has opted against going for a hat-trick of Mexican sombreros; 2012-13 winner Sara Errani and 2015 victor Timea Bacsinszky are both competing in the Indian Wells 125K instead, while 2014 champion Dominika Cibulkova is taking the week off.

The bottom half of the draw is highlighted by a tantalizing first-round clash between No.2 seed Danielle Collins, fresh off her maiden Grand Slam semifinal at the Australian Open, and former World No.1 Victoria Azarenka. The pair have only met once before, in last year’s San Jose quarterfinals – and it was a tightly contested match cut short in unfortunate fashion when a back injury forced Azarenka to retire while leading 7-6(4), 0-3. The winner faces a potential second-round tilt against last year’s runner-up Stefanie Voegele.

The two breakout teenagers of the Australian swing also return to action in Mexico this week. 18-year-old Auckland runner-up Bianca Andreescu opens against wildcard Jil Teichmann, with the winner to take on either No.4 seed Mihaela Buzarnescu or Daria Gavrilova. The latter clash is guaranteed to belatedly kickstart one player’s season: Gavrilova has lost all five of her matches in 2019 so far, while Buzarnescu is still languishing on an 11-match losing streak dating back to the Romanian’s unfortunate ankle injury in Montréal last August.

Meanwhile, 17-year-old Amanda Anisimova, playing for the first time since her run to the Australian Open fourth round, will get started against a qualifier, with a potential second-round date against either No.8 seed Johanna Konta or former World No.27 Laura Siegemund awaiting.

2018 saw local favourite Juan Martin Del Potro take down South Africa’s best ever player Kevin Anderson in 2 straight sets. This year Del Potro is back but he’ll have some stiff competition.

Dubai Tennis Championships had found its place in the ATP calendar in 1993 and over the years it became one of the essential events outside Grand Slams and Masters 1000 tournaments. After they built the Aviation Club Tennis Centre in 1996, Dubai upgraded to the ATP 500 series where it stayed ever since.

The first champion was Karel Novacek and the trophy ended in the hands of the names like Goran Ivanisevic, Thomas Muster, Juan Carlos Ferrero and Alex Corretja. Roger Federer started his Dubai reign in 2003 and he is by far the most successful player of this event, winning seven titles until 2015.

Besides him, only the most prominent stars have won here in the past 15 years, including Andy Roddick, Rafael Nadal, Stan Wawrinka and Novak Djokovic who is a four-time Dubai champion. Roger leads 2019 edition together with Kei Nishikori, Marin Cilic, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Borna Coric, Milos Raonic and Daniil Medvedev and the organizers have announced three players from outside the top-100 who have earned the main draw wild card to join a stellar field and seek some big wins and points.

The world no. 124 Marcos Baghdatis has been ranked outside the top-50 for almost two years now and he returns to Dubai for the ninth time, winning nine matches so far and losing in the final to Stan Wawrinka in 2016. Also, Baghdatis was the semi-finalist in 2010, taking a set against Novak Djokovic before the Serb prevailed.

Marcos played in the quarter-final of Montpellier and he will try to carry that form into the desert as well, capable of playing good tennis in Dubai when he finds his ‘A game.’ The 24-year-old Indian Ramkumar Ramanathan in another player from the top-130 who will try to crack the top-100 for the first time in the season ahead of us, playing in his maiden ATP final in Newport last year and making the first Dubai appearance next week after receiving an invitation.

The 28-year-old Mohamed Safwat will be the lowest-ranked player in the draw, scoring just two wins in the ATP tournaments so far in a career and spending the most of his tennis journey on Futures where he played in more than 40 finals! Mohamed had a chance to play in Dubai in 2017, losing 6-4, 6-3 against Gael Monfils in the opening round and seeking his biggest win next week with a potentially favorable draw.

The Marseille Open Tournament Director Jean-Francois Caujolle commented on the future of men’s tennis between the Next Generation and the older players. In an interview to Yahoo, Caujolle showed to be doubtful: “When I see the professionalism, determination of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal or Novak Djokovic, even of a Marin Cilic or Juan Martin del Potro, the suffering they went through, I ask myself how will the young guys react to that? On the way to the top, there are ways.

Kyrgios didn’t overcome the first stage of suffering or professionalism. Coric has the highest degree of professionalism.” Analyzing this week’s Open 13 field, Caujolle added: “I am like Thomas Tuchel when he learned that he would have not had Neymar and Cavani to face the Manchester United.

He said: “It doesn’t matter, we will play” and he showed that his team was very strong even without its two top protagonists. We, our two protagonists, Murray e Karen Khachanov, are missing, but there is a great draw.

There isn’t any top ten player and we have just two top 20 guys, which never happened in the tournament history. There is Jo-Wilfried Tsonga’s case, who is a real top 10, or David Goffin, a former top 10 player, or Gael Monfils, an alien, who I put in a different category of tennis players.

Having Gael in a draw is a pure pleasure for me. I am also one of the organizers who is like this because with Gael we can expect the best and the worst. Bu the worst is never sure and if it happens, we are prepared. It will be a fun week.

Sometimes I had stronger draws in terms of names or rankings. But they did not necessarily entertain me too much.” .

On Saturday, presidents, music stars and activists backing the Venezuelan opposition’s attempt to break a government blockade and bring food and medical supplies into the country, and most of the journalists covering the showdown, clustered around the border with Colombia.

But it was the remote frontier with Brazil that saw the worst violence and the boldest – though unfounded – claims of success in getting aid into Venezuela.

At least three people were killed and more than 20 injured over two days of extraordinary violence and tension in the area that saw the regional military chief briefly captured by indigenous people and the most senior local official flee into hiding.

“I am protecting the mayor and indigenous leaders,” Candy, a leader of the indigenous Pemón Territorial Guard, told the Guardian. “This flight into the forest is isn’t some kind of protest. It’s a war that they have launched, they have orders to fire at us, whoever we are.

The ongoing crisis in Venezuela devolved over the weekend, as embattled president Nicolás Maduro’s military blocked help and humanitarian aid from entering the country — occasionally with deadly force.

Starting Friday, violent clashes erupted at several points along Venezuela’s border with Colombia as armed government forces tried to block shipments of aid from entering the country. By the end of Saturday, at least four people had reportedly been killed along that line and along the Latin American country’s border with Brazil; hundreds more were injured. Maduro has insisted that the humanitarian supplies are unnecessary and spent the weekend continuing to celebrate his ongoing rule with his supporters — even as the United States and other international leaders amped up calls for him to step down.

The conditions inside Venezuela, however, paint a dramatically different picture than Maduro’s salsa-dancing rally Saturday does. The country has been consumed by political turmoil and an economic free-fall that has pushed Venezuela beyond the brink of a humanitarian crisis. Vox’s Alex Ward has a run-down of just how dire the situation has become:

Inflation in the country now hovers above a million percent, and could reach 10 million percent this year, according to the International Monetary Fund. Food and medicine are too expensive for many to purchase. And since 2015, more than 3 million Venezuelans have left the country in search of better opportunities elsewhere, primarily in Colombia. (It’s expected that another 2 million will become refugees in 2019 alone.)

Despite the declining conditions, Maduro has vowed to block any humanitarian aid from crossing the border into Venezuela. He denies that a humanitarian crisis even exists in his country and he’s called the international shipments a potential “trojan horse” that would lead to military intervention.

The attempt to deliver humanitarian aid to Venezuela, orchestrated by Juan Guaidó, who is recognised as the country’s interim president by its opposition-controlled legislature and by most western and Latin American democracies, had three objectives. The first was publicly to shame the dictatorial regime of Nicolás Maduro. Its corruption and incompetence have inflicted years of hardship on Venezuelans. The second was to relieve that hardship by delivering some 600 tons of aid, most of it provided by the United States. The third and most important was to bring the regime down by driving a wedge between its leaders and the various armed forces that keep it in power. The operation succeeded in its first objective, but has so far failed to achieve the other two.

The Academy skewed dark in its choice of live-action shorts this year, selecting four films to slit your wrists by — each one featuring child endangerment in a different form — and a fifth, about a diabetic on her death bed, that finds a glimmer of uplift at the other end of life. If that sounds like a complaint, think again: All too often, the Academy falls for either lightweight comedic shorts or over-earnest social-issue dramas, whereas this lot consists of several genuinely well-tooled micro-thrillers. It’s just a lot to stomach in a single, two-hour sitting.

The theatrical program opens with Spanish director Rodrigo Sorogoyen’s Goya-winning “Madre,” which begins with a slow pan of an empty beach — meaningless at first, but setting the stage for a parental nightmare that plays out entirely in the audience’s imagination. Like Gustav Möller’s nail-biting Danish feature “The Guilty,” this short conjures an uncertain but potentially grave scenario at the other end of a phone call, except this time, instead of focusing on a relatively calm emergency operator, we’re invited to identify with a panicky mother. The caller is her 6-year-old, who’s supposed to be traveling with his father, but has inexplicably wound up by himself on a beach hours away in France. Where is he exactly? What happened to his chaperone? And why doesn’t his mom simply ask him to text her his location? “Madre” is more of an exercise than a movie, turning every parent’s worst nightmare into a gimmicky calling card.

Film Review: ‘2019 Oscar Nominated Short Films: Animation’
Contrast that with “Fauve,” the more enigmatic short that immediately follows, and one can appreciate the difference between exploitation and artistry: Canadian director Jeremy Comte plunges us into the midst of a primitive game, as two boys (Felix Grenier and Alexandre Perreault) try to one-up each other via a series of cruel tricks. Their world feels eerily abandoned, ranging from abandoned train tracks to an off-limits surface mine, where things take an unexpected turn. Comte disorients us at first, leaving us to play detective as we attempt to figure out the rules, and before things quite make sense, he springs the twist, putting the kids in imminent danger. It’s cruel, to be sure, and yet, in the space of a few minutes, he’s established the situation well enough for audiences to identify with the situation — and to appreciate the terrible irony of the short’s slow denouement. Voters will do what voters do, but “Fauve” is far and away the strongest contender.

For the West L.A. theater full of elderly ladies, however, the clear favorite was “Marguerite,” another French-language Canadian offering — although this one strikes a much different, and far more sensitive tone. Hinging on kindness rather than conflict, the short observes the connection between a kindly nurse (Sandrine Bisson) and her charge, Marguerite (Béatrice Picard), the invalid older woman whom she visits daily. Such a story could have gone any number of directions, most of them depressing, but director Marianne Farley — the category’s only female helmer — doesn’t abuse the end-of-life premise. (Gentle spoilers ahead.) Rather, she reveals first that the nurse is a lesbian, and later that Marguerite missed out on a same-sex love of her own decades earlier, when such things simply weren’t allowed. The film invites us to wonder how many “Marguerites” there are in the world, while sensitively offering this one a meaningful connection with someone she’d been taught to fear.

From there, it’s straight back into nerve-wracking mode, as “Detainment” writer-director Vincent Lambe re-creates one of Britain’s most notorious murder cases, in which two 10-year-old boys were convincted of abducting, torturing, and ultimately killing 2-year-old “Baby James.” True-crime reenactments have been popular fodder for short-film directors of late, but this one is unusually effective, relying on transcripts of police interviews with the two suspects, Robert Thompson and Jon Venables (played by Leon Hughes and Ely Solan in a pair of stunning child performances), to provide a window into their psychology. That’s a risky undertaking — and one that has exposed Lambe to considerable criticism — as it so often amplifies the celebrity of society’s most depraved individuals, but there’s something not just compelling, but almost necessary about this portrayal: Whereas “Fauve” depicts an accident of sorts, “Detainment” reveals a deliberate case of human cruelty, the horror of which was compounded by its apparent lack of motive.

The fifth and final nominee, “Skin,” is a stunner from Israeli director Guy Nattiv, although it stacks the deck so outrageously against a bunch of racist white neo-Nazis that it’s hard to take seriously at times. Nattiv went on to direct a separate feature, also called “Skin,” about a former skinhead (played by Jamie Bell) who had a change of heart and went on to have all of his white-power tattoos removed. While that story actually happened (see the documentary “Erasing Hate”), this far-fetched fiction short imagines virtually the opposite scenario, as the perpetrator of a hate crime (Jonathan Tucker, seething and self-righteous) faces a kind of poetic retribution. To amplify audiences’ outrage, Nattiv frames the story from the p.o.v. of the bigot’s pre-teen son, who has been all but brainwashed into becoming the perfect weapon for the film’s shocking conclusion. Nattiv is an undeniably gifted filmmaker, but the feature proves more impactful.

The presentations for live action short, cinematography, editing and make-up and hair were to be streamed online in an effort to shorten this year’s TV broadcast on 24 February.

Dozens of directors, cinematographers and actors had criticised the decision.

Organisers said they had heard the “feedback” and changed their mind.

A statement by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said: “All Academy Awards will be presented without edits, in our traditional format. We look forward to Oscar Sunday, February 24.”

Oscars 2019: Snubs and surprises
This is not the first controversy to hit this year’s awards ceremony – the Academy had decided to introduce a new popular film category but decided to postpone it after a backlash.

The show will also have no main host after actor Kevin Hart pulled out following controversy over homophobic tweets.

What was the issue?
The Academy emailed its members on 11 February to say that, in order to keep the show down to three hours, they would present four awards during commercial breaks.

Previous ceremonies have gone on for more than four hours and last year’s broadcast had an all-time low of 26.5 million viewers.

Prominent figures in the film industry objected, including Russell Crowe who called it “a fundamentally stupid decision”.

Double Oscar winner Alfonso Cuarón, whose film Roma is nominated for 10 Oscars this year including best cinematography, was one of the first to object.

In the history of CINEMA, masterpieces have existed without sound, without color, without a story, without actors and without music. No one single film has ever existed without CINEMAtography and without editing.

Spike Lee, whose film BlacKkKlansman is up for six Oscars this year, wrote to the LA Times along with his editor Barry Alexander Brown.

“Without cinematographers and film editors, I would be lost, wandering in the cinema wilderness,” he wrote.

Before reversing its decision, the Academy had tried to reassure its members that no award category “will be presented in a manner that depicts the achievements of its nominees and winners as less than any others”.

The ceremony will be live streamed for the first time this year. The winning speeches for the four categories in question would have been aired later in the TV broadcast in an edited form.
