‘He’s human’: Cavs coach defends LeBron after ‘weird’ loss

It’s the Eastern Conference finals. It’s not enough for him. For what he does, what he brings, it’s not enough.“He knows that. We know that. Just expect him to be better in Game 4.”The series resumes Tuesday night at Quicken Loans Arena before returning to Boston on Thursday for a Game 5 that didn’t appear necessary until the Celtics stormed back from 21 down and won when Avery Bradley’s 3-pointer danced an Irish jig on the rim before falling with 0.01 seconds left.READ: LeBron struggles, exchanges words with fanIt was Boston’s first outing since star guard Isaiah Thomas was shut down with a hip injury, and the Celtics showed they’re capable counter-punchers.

The Cavs chose to go under screens, giving Smart room to shoot and he burned them badly.“Marcus Smart made 15 out of 77 off-the-dribble threes this year,” Lue said, defending his defensive plan on Smart. “He made some last night.”As Lue spoke to a large group of reporters and some Cavs players got in extra shots following practice, James was noticeably absent from the floor. Usually, he hangs around to work on his game, but on this day No. 23 wasn’t visible.Lue said James was “in good spirits” and that no one was pinning the loss on him.“No blame. We’re all to blame,” Lue said. “We lost; it happens. For a guy who played great for five straight months, he’s got to have a bad game sooner or later. He’s human. He didn’t shoot the ball well. It wasn’t his ordinary game. But Kevin (Love) and Kyrie (Irving) had it going early and they played well, so it kind of got him out of rhythm a little bit in that first half.“That’s no excuse.

Sempala impress as Tusker humble Posta

first_img0Shares0000Tusker FC’s Noah Wafula in action at a previous SPL clash. PHOTO/FILEMachakos, Kenya, July 3 – New signing Hashim Sempala impressed as Tusker FC reclaimed the top spot after humbling Posta Rangers 1-0 in a Kenyan Premier League encounter played at the Kenyatta Stadium on Sunday.Winger Noah Wafula was on target after nodding home in the 18th minute to see the Brewers start the second leg on a high, sitting at the summit on 32 points, two ahead of close challengers Mathare United who silenced Ulinzi Stars 1-0 on Saturday. It was a fairly balanced first-half with Tusker having five attempts on goal against Ranger’s four but it was the Brewers who maximized their only shot on target that resulted to a goal.Signed from Bidco Limited Uganda, Sempala stamped his authority in the Tusker midfield as he provided a long range defence splitting pass to Michael Khamati, who calmly did well to beat on-rushing Posta keeper Patrick Matasi before cutting in for Wafula to head home.Khamati could have added the second but a strong Posta back-line was solid led by Jockins Atudo, who shut down the speedy Tusker wingers as the Paul Nkata charges headed to the dressing room leading 1-0 at the break.Returning for the last period, Tusker squandered an opportunity to double the lead after Luis Tera saw his 56th minute penalty saved by Matasi after Salim Abdala had elbowed Khamati in the box.Tusker’s dominance in the midfield went on with Posta continuing committing mistakes to enable the visitors play into their hands.Posta last attempts saw Calvin Odongo and Titus Achesa  being introduced in an attempt to salvage a point but the Brewers proved a hard nut to crack to claim maximum points and return at the top.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Historic Southern California ski resort faces cloudy future

first_img Jody Noiron, forest supervisor for the Angeles National Forest, confirmed that the Mount Waterman permits were revoked for noncompliance reasons, including a lack of operating permits from the state to operate the chairlifts. The current owners have until the summer to remove all facilities including the chairlifts, she said. If the facilities are not removed by the deadline, they become the property of the U.S. government. But the owners are still responsible for all the costs involved in the removal, she said. If the owners choose to sell the resort before that time, it will be a private transaction, she added. The Forest Service would get involved again if new owners apply to the agency for special-use permits, she said. Chuck Ojala, one of the current owners, said there have been negotiations with Metcalf, but no deal has been struck. “It’s in a state of flux with nothing decided on,” he said. “All I know is everyone wants to save it because it is a historic Southern California ski site.” The resort dates back to 1939, when Newcomb and his father built the first rope tow at the area, about 34 miles north of La Caada Flintridge in the San Gabriel Mountains. They began operating the first chairlift in Southern California on New Year’s Day 1942. Newcomb remained at the helm of the resort for all but a two-year period in the early 1990s, when he sold it to two San Gabriel Valley businessmen. When their ambitious plans for snowmaking and other improvements fell through, the businessmen returned it to Newcomb. He continued running it until 1999, when a new group of about 11 Southern California businessman purchased it and neighboring Snowcrest. The new owners formed a company, Angeles Crest Resorts, and also announced plans to bring change to the resort, including adding 16 to 17 chairlifts, building up the acreage between Waterman and Snowcrest, installing extensive snowmaking and improving the parking areas. Instead, the resort has not operated since July 2001, mostly because of low snowfall seasons, but also because the group did not have operating permits from the state for the chairlifts. Then in January 2005, Barry Stubblefield, a part owner who was digging out Waterman after a snowstorm, died in an accident on the hill. Stubblefield and two ski patrol members were skiing when he fell and tumbled out of control, hitting a tree. The loss was devastating to the owners, Ojala said, but they still continued their efforts to get the resort running by this winter. Although they worked last summer to bring the chairlifts into compliance, the effort was not enough to satisfy the Forest Service, he said. “It’s been hard,” said Ojala. “We wanted to bring snow play to Snowcrest and snowmaking to Waterman, but it always seemed like the Forest Service was changing the rules and couldn’t make up their minds.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

If his plans work out, he and Metcalf hope to improve the facilities, including renovating the resort’s small restaurant within the warming hut and the ticket office. They also plan to bring up to standard the three chairlifts, which must pass state inspection. But running Mount Waterman again could be as challenging as skiing down the area’s steep front face. Newcomb decided to get back into the ski resort business after he heard that the U.S. Forest Service had revoked the permits for Mount Waterman and neighboring Snowcrest, formerly Kratka Ridge, and that under orders of the Forest Service, the current owners now must vacate the premises by June or the whole area could be demolished. Alarmed by that news, Newcomb contacted Metcalf, a Del Mar real estate developer and longtime Waterman skier, who had expressed an interest in purchasing the ski area. Newcomb told him there were plans to wipe Waterman out and that something needed to be done, said Metcalf. “I felt like I wanted to save it because it’s such an unbelievable hill and I wanted future generations to enjoy it,” Metcalf said. MOUNT WATERMAN – There are no long lines at the lift ticket office, no cars parked bumper-to-bumper on Highway 2, no parka-clad skiers and snowboarders hopping onto the chairlift for the ride to the top of the mountain. The only signs of life at Mount Waterman this ski season are hawks circling above the tall pines, squirrels running across the highway, and a white-haired man, who stands at the base of the lifts looking up at the steep snow-covered mountain face. But just wait until next season, says 85-year-old Lynn Newcomb, the former longtime owner of the long-closed ski resort. Newcomb and Rick Metcalf, a Southern California real estate developer and former Waterman skier, are negotiating to buy back the ski resort, which Newcomb sold in 1999 to a group of Southern California businessmen. last_img read more
