Simmons helps 76ers beat Rockets 115-107
The Houston Rockets allowed Philadelphia 76ers point guard Ben Simmons to take jump shots on Monday night and he made them pay.
It’s the same for us. If you jump out of gap, just like playing in the NFL, the margin of error is like that. They’re going to make a play. You stay in your gap, you’re going to make the tackle. You press corner, you get beat, it’s a touchdown. You beat him, you may get an interception. That’s the way this game goes.
The Crimson Tide has a relentless rushing attack, led by Damien Harris, who is averaging 87.1 yards per game, and Bo Scarbrough, who is at 47.1 yards per game. Hurts is a threat on scrambles and designed runs, averaging 71.5 yards per game on the ground, although he hasn’t been asked to do much through the air.
Walker credits the duo’s early success to constant communication with Howard, saying they talk at length after every game and practice. Walker also said they text constantly during off days.
We are trying to make sure we are on the same page, Walker said. I tell him I am going to be learning ways to get him the basketball and just be patient with me. And that is what he has been doing. And he’s opening up so many other aspects of my game. He attracts so much attention and gets other people open.
The Hornets are 3-3 despite starting the season without injured Nic Batum, the team’s highest-paid player.
We try to come in every night and prove that we’re not just those players who were in the Paul George trade and that we actually mean something, Sabonis said after again replacing the injured Myles Turner in the starting lineup.
Coyotes get 1st win, beat Flyers in OT after blowing lead
The struggling Arizona Coyotes finally got their first win of the season — but it sure didn’t come easy.
Alex Goligoski scored late in overtime after the Coyotes blew a two-goal lead in the final minute of regulation during a 4-3 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday night.
Receiver K.J. Hill said Barrett’s calmness keeps the Buckeyes cool, and, yes, he does cut loose sometimes.
We definitely got a smile out of him. A little dance moves in the locker room, Hill said.
For Dallas, given the locations and the toughness of its opponents in those six games, lacking the rushing and receiving threat that is Elliott could make for a big negative swing. The Cowboys could win all six with Elliott. Without him, the over/under for Dallas victories is two.
A 4-3 record typically would be an indication of a mediocre team that has a questionable chance at a deep playoff run. That’s not the case for the Cowboys, who still have that chance with their defense starting to play well. But the physical and emotional blow of having Elliott pulled from the lineup could rein in the hot play of quarterback Dak Prescott and that defense at the worse possible time.
He almost threw a handful of interceptions in the drives preceding his airmail to end the game. The struggles aren’t all on the rookie. He’s playing with a bevy of third-fiddle pass-catchers who can’t uncover from defensive backs and don’t have needed chemistry with the young quarterback.
Bears fans can gripe about the four points lost on the overturned play. What Chicago can’t complain about is missing out on seven first-half points with a missed field goal and a Saints field goal turning into a touchdown after an offside penalty.
For his first seven games as a Celtic, he is averaging 21.7 points and 5.7 assists.
He’s leading our team in steals right now. I’m kind of upset about that because he’s got bragging rights over us, Terry Rozier said. He’s been doing a good job. He’s been playing great offensively and defensively.
Hield missed 7 of 9 shots and scored four points at Indiana.
Boston and Sacramento split their two-game series last season, but the Celtics have won nine straight against the Kings at TD Garden. The Kings are 5-1 in the last six vs. the Celtics on their home floor.
The key may be Love, who sat out the Oregon State game with an ankle injury and is questionable for Saturday’s game against the Cougars.
He’ll probably be a game-time decision, Shaw said Tuesday. He feels better this week than last week, but he’s probably still not ready to practice.
The Cardinal still lead the nation in yards per rushing attempt (7.25), but that is mainly because Love averages 10.27 yards per carry. Without him, Stanford rushed for a season-low 81 yards against an Oregon State defense that ranked 100th in the country.
He really brings something that no one else can, said Stanford defensive tackle Harrison Phillips. He’s going to win the Heisman this year. He should, no questions asked. So not having that player in there we’re not at our 100 percent best. He was missed, and we’re very thankful we’re going to get him back soon.
Part of his devolution can be attributed to the struggling running game, but as the Giants game exposed, Siemian’s mistakes are usually of his own making. Against one of the more vulnerable Chiefs defenses in recent years, a unit missing Eric Berry, will Siemian be able to get back on track?
