Dunleavy’s injury came in Tuesday’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks. After showing concussion-like symptoms on Thursday, Dunleavy was placed in the NBA’s concussion protocol program.Tonight’s match-up marks the third of four meetings between Cleveland and Toronto. The Cavs won the first two meetings this season (94-91 on Oct. 28 in Toronto and 121-117 on Nov. 15 in Cleveland). The fourth game is scheduled to be played on April 12th in Cleveland.* Cavaliers projected starting lineup (subject to change) *(PG) Kyrie Irving (6′-3″, 193 lbs)(SG) J.R. Smith (6′-6″, 225 lbs)(SF) LeBron James (6′-8″, 250 lbs)(PF) Kevin Love (6′-10″, 251 lbs)(PF) Tristan Thompson (6′-10″, 238 lbs)* Cavaliers injury report *– (F/C) Mike Dunleavy (concussion): Probable– Raptors (14-6, 1st in Atlantic): Toronto comes into tonight’s match-up with the defending champs as winners in six straight games, including their dominating 128-84 win over the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday night. Per Elias Sports Bureau, Toronto’s 44 point margin of victory over the Hawks on Saturday night set a new Raptors franchise record. DeMar DeRozan continues to lead the Raptors in scoring. DeRozan, who was selected 9th overall in the 2009 NBA Draft (Toronto), is averaging 27.9 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 4.3 assists per contest. Kyle Lowry leads the Raptors in the assist department. The former Villanova Wildcat stand-out and 24th overall selection in the 2006 NBA Draft (Memphis) is averaging 20.4 points, 7.4 assists, and 5.1 rebounds per game. In Saturday’s impressive win over the Hawks, Lowry scored 17 points (6-of-9 shots and three 3-pointers), eight rebounds, eight assists and one block in 31 minutes.Lowry truly has it going as of late, averaging 22.6 points, 4.8 rebounds, 7.4 assists, 1.2 steals and 4.6 three-pointers on 64 percent shooting over his last five games.In a recent article from ESPN, Lowry was asked if the game against the Cavaliers would provide a test for the Raptors. Lowry replied, saying:“I don’t think it’s a test. You all asked me that the first game of the season that we played them. I think it’s just another regular-season game for us and a team that we always want to be better than. But we want to be better than every team in the NBA at the end of the day.”Jonas Valanciunas, who was selected 5th overall in the 2011 NBA Draft (Toronto), will be cleaning the glass for the Raptors. Coming into tonight’s bout with the defending champs, the Lithuanian big man is averaging 12.6 points and a team-high 9.3 rebounds per game.* Raptors projected starting lineup (subject to change) *(PG) Kyle Lowry (6′-1″, 196 lbs)(SG) DeMar DeRozan (6′-7″, 219 lbs)(SF) DeMarre Carroll (6′-8″, 215 lbs)(PF) Patrick Patterson (6′-9″, 230 lbs)(C) Jonas Valanciunas (7′-0″, 265 lbs)* Raptors injury report *– (PG) Delon Wright (shoulder): Out– (PF) Jared Sullinger (foot): Out* All stats and information via www.basketball-reference.com, www.rotoworld.com, www.nba.com, www.espn.com, Elias Sports Bureau, and The Associated Press *last_img read more

Strokes of genius at swimming gala

first_imgGarden International School (GIS), which is based in Ban Chang, made a splash with a spectacular swimming gala on Wednesday October 10 as the students took on two other local schools, namely Regent’s and St Andrews. All three schools were leading the points table at some stage during the afternoon, which meant that every single race mattered and was closely contested.A GIS student gets into the swim of things. The GIS Year 4 boys got off to a good start by winning the Medley Relay.  The Year 5 girls brought GIS the most points out of all the age groups and did fantastically well.  All in all, every single swimmer who competed for GIS swam well.  The results were extremely close and by the end Regent’s won, with GIS and St Andrews both tied in second place.Almost there – a young swimmer at GIS.Swimming coordinator Ms Wilson lends a hand.last_img read more

Backwards strategy powers Kootenay canoe team to sixth place

first_imgBy Daniel Routley, BC Summer Games A wild ride on the water has left a canoe team from Nelson smiling. With a time of 6:51, Kootenays (Zone 1) members Gino Catenacci, Galen Boulanger, Stuart Milde and Jacob Timmermans completed their 500 metre, four-person canoe race Saturday morning by paddling hard in reverse. Starting in lane #5 on the far right of the course, the four boys pulled ahead of the others only to begin an accidental journey to the left of the course. With teammates and the referee calling on the team to go right, the boys still managed to end up off the course, in the bushes, and then eventually completely backwards. “We were actually going better backwards than forwards,” said Timmermans after the race. “We were more in sync going backwards!” “That’s how they paddle in the Kootenays, backwards.” announced chief official Bill Rublee on the radio. “We’re no good at the canoeing,” commented Catenacci. “We’re much better at the kayaking.” But, with only two months of training between them all, even a sixth place finish is an excellent feeling, they said. Boulanger called it “the best race I’ve ever had,” and, with smiles on their faces and excitement in their hearts, it was certainly an exciting event.last_img read more

Minister Felix has failed to provide any reliable information

first_imgDear Editor,I have written twice on the subject of Haitians’ arrival in Guyana asking that the Minister of Citizenship, Mr Winston Felix, explain the fact that, according to him, over 8000 Haitians recently arrived in our country and less than 2000 are recorded as having departed. I asked a simple question: “where are the 7000 odd unaccounted-for Haitians?”I am not the only citizen who has expressed this concern, but instead of providing an answer to the nation, the Minister singled me out for attack and called me “xenophobic”. He also failed to provide any reliable information. Mr Felix, instead of holding a press conference and facing the media on a subject of major public interest and concern, stages an ” interview” with the Public Information and Press Services of the Ministry of the Presidency to feed him rehearsed questions.Acknowledging that the Haitians cleared customs and immigration into the country, unbelievably, he has to rely on Brazilian immigration records to tell us that just under 7000 Haitians have arrived in that country but can offer no evidence that they have legally departed Guyana. In other words, the Haitians who arrived, under our immigration laws, are still in Guyana.Winston Felix should know better than to call me, of all people, “xenophobic”.Let me remind him that I have served my country longer than he ever will, in and out of the Cabinet under two Presidents, the founder of the party he now represents, Forbes Burnham, and later former President Desmond Hoyte.When Guyana was beset by the horrors of Jonestown, I was assigned a diplomatic mission by President Burnham, in the USA, to defend our country’s name and reputation, appearing in over 20 television programmes, including NBC and CBS, yet Felix has the gumption to call me “xenophobic”. If anyone needs to apologise, it’s you, Mr Felix. Do your job Mister Minister. Hold a press conference, tell us the truth.Sincerely,Kit Nascimentolast_img read more
