Falcons become butt of the joke after Super Bowl collapse Learning about the ‘Ring of Fire’ It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson Mayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’ “I think people that watch Kyrie play a lot can see his passing and his potential there as a passer. LeBron was pretty much the point guard in Cleveland and Kyrie was a point guard often when LeBron wasn’t on the court. I think that he’s a fantastic passer and I think that defensively he’s got to improve and I think he will in Brad’s system.”In his first six seasons with the Cavaliers, Irving averaged a modest 5.5 assists per game, which the 58-year-old executive believes woill go higher in Boston.Although he will no longer have the luxury of playing alongside LeBron James, Ainge adds that his pick-and-roll prowess will be showcased more with new teammates Al Horford commanding the block and Gordon Hayward manning the wings.

For California High School’s football program, this is not a good combination. Schurr High School’s football program has three linemen weighing more than 300 pounds. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 “We know (Schurr) has some huge guys up front, and we know (its game plan) will be to come out and try to make it a smash-mouth game,” Ancich said, referring to the prospect of physical play and not implying anything outside the rules. “We expect them to be very strong, but we’ve got some strong kids, too. Missing those four guys could cause some headaches for us.” The four players who are either out or at least doubtful for the game are Adam Garcia, a 5-foot-11, 265-pound offensive tackle (ankle); Sergio Dias, a 6-3, 275-pound nose guard (elbow); Robert Arriola, a 6-3 180-pound tight end (concussion); and Brian Minero, a 5-10, 200-pound linebacker (knee). California is 1-2 after suffering a disappointing 21-7 loss to Long Beach Jordan last week. “Jordan was big, too, and had good speed,” Ancich said. “But I was very happy with the way our kids played. They weren’t intimidated at all. Losing never feels good, but I think we learned some things about ourselves.” Ancich says the Condors’ record may be misleading. California is missing at least four players whom coach Dusan Ancich describes as “some of our more physical players.” The teams play a nonleague game tonight at Schurr. “We’ve played some very good teams,” he said, referring in addition to Jordan a 28-14 loss to Rowland and a 42-7 win over El Monte. The three combined have a 7-2 record. “Our problem has been (making) mistakes at inopportune times,” Ancich added. “The good thing is that they are correctable mistakes.” Schurr has been outscored 88-54, but turned in an impressive performance in a 30-26 loss to a good Hacienda Heights Wilson team last week. The Spartans have shown improvement in each of their games, starting with a 30-14 loss to Burbank Burroughs and followed by a 28-14 loss to Downey, which is ranked No. 8 in CIF-Southern Section Division III. — Roger Murray can be reached at (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3046, or by e-mail at email@example.com. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
