Latics slipped to their second league defeat of 2023 in the North East, with Gateshead running out 2-1 winners. Latics didn’t learn their lesson and Gateshead were able to play their way into attack again less than a minute later. He weaved his way through challenges from Latics’ hapless defenders before firing a well hit shot narrowly wide of Norman’s far post. A matter of moments later, Latics were nearly the architect of their own downfall after a loose pass saw Gateshead break with Campbell stinging the gloves of Norman from the resulting shot. The result means Latics’ gap between themselves and the bottom four has been cut to just three points.
Sources say there’s been significant progress made in recent weeks, generating hope that a deal is within reach. The acquisition comes after Haslam attended Bucks games throughout the months-long process of Lasry deciding whether to sell his stake. Seventy Is SpecialDame scored 70, and that’s still amazingFor the second time this season, a player crossed the 70-point barrier. But Lillard’s outburst had its own distinctions:At 32 years and 226 days old, Lillard is the oldest to score at least 70. Just because scoring is up and we’ve had 148 40-point games, doesn’t mean this achievement should be taken for granted.23 days ago The Athletic

The final score, if you must know, was Team USA 88, Uruguay 77. The qualification process gets much more complicated for teams who do not qualify via the World Cup. Next comes the fun part: in the weeks ahead Team USA will likely start to roll out some names of NBA players committed for the World Cup. The Team USA that goes to the Philippines could look very different from the group that goes to Paris. On a personal level, workouts with the Hawks and Lakers resulted from his strong Team USA showing.26 days ago The Athletic
Thursday’s shot has been months in the making. Ivey, like most rookies, has had to earn opportunities like the one in the final moments of Thursday’s game. The end of Thursday’s game wasn’t the work of some tanking team trying to put its fate in the hands of a teenager. With each passing game, Ivey is looking more and more like a point guard, a position he didn’t play with great regularity in college. On Thursday morning, after the Pistons wrapped up shootaround in Orlando, Ivey had to be forced off the floor.27 days ago The Athletic

The 21-year-old is still adjusting to his first time with the big leaguers at Yankees spring training. Still, this is my 10th consecutive spring training, and this Yankees’ clubhouse feels as loose and as relaxed as any I’ve experienced. Yankees spring training: Day 1 pic.twitter.com/zljriDZDG0 — Brendan Kuty (@BrendanKutyNJ) February 15, 2023Kirschner: The expectations for the starting rotation are high. Most of the time, when there’s a spring training competition, it’s between people who view that position as their primary spot. The young stars — particularly Volpe, Dominguez, Wells and Peraza — haven’t seemed daunted by being in the Yankees’ spring training clubhouse at all.29 days ago The Athletic
