Durant finished with 25 points, seven rebounds and five blocked shots.“He’s one of the leaders in shot blocks a game and obviously he had five tonight, so he’s been doing a heck of a job of first of all taking the individual matchup and protecting the rim, too,” James said. “I forgot all about it,” Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said with a chuckle.The teams will see each other again soon, playing Jan. 15 in Cleveland.KD requested James for his defensive assignment, to which he explained simply, “I just like guarding my position.”The Cavs, having won six of seven and playing for the first time since Thursday, had their run of scoring at least 100 points end at 26 games.The Warriors were at nearly full strength again aside from Curry, who could return this week once he goes through some scrimmages at practice.Center Zaza Pachulia was available but didn’t play after sitting out seven consecutive games, while Shaun Livingston came back after missing four games with a sore right knee.Bell — who addressed the sellout crowd at midcourt moments before tipoff — started at center and had eight points and six rebounds.SHOOTING WOESThe Cavs’ 31.8-percent shooting was the lowest by a Warriors opponent in nearly four years, since Charlotte shot 31.2 percent from the field on Feb. 4, 2014.“We just didn’t make shots,” Lue said.

It was Golden State’s 12th win in 13 games after its 11-game winning streak was snapped by Denver on Sunday (Manila time).Warriors rookie Jordan Bell traveled with 2:13 left and James tied it.

The Warriors last June captured a second championship in three years against James and the Cavaliers.ADVERTISEMENT Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant (35) reacts after blocking a shot by Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James during the second half of an NBA basketball game. APOAKLAND, California — LeBron James drove to the basket in the waning seconds and Kevin Durant swatted away any chance Cleveland had at a Christmas Day comeback.Durant pumped his fist again and again, emphatically shook his head and pounded his chest in delight. It looked a lot like the dominant Durant from the NBA Finals six months ago.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ A REAL RIVALRYSure, this one felt a little strange without Curry or Kyrie Irving, now in Boston.“Golden State-Cavaliers, that’s a big game, no matter who’s playing, who’s out,” Lue said.“It will be weird, without Steph, without Ky, especially the battles we’ve had over the last three years. So both teams look different.”Warriors coach Steve Kerr knows just the uniforms are enough to get everybody going — and this marked the third straight Christmas matchup between the franchises, alternating home floors based on who won the title.“It’s always great to play the Cavs, they’re an awesome team,” Kerr said. “LeBron is so amazing and it’s so fun to feel the energy in the building when the two teams get together. Neither team will look the same as we will even a month from now because Steph and Isaiah Thomas both should be back, hopefully they’ll both be back. … But it doesn’t even matter sometimes, just the two uniforms in the same building gets people going.”TIP-INSCavaliers: Lue isn’t yet ready to guess when Thomas will return following his right hip injury. “He is progressing very well,” Lue said. “The most important thing is that he is getting to practice and playing 5-on-5 and having a chance to experience feeling well after it and not having soreness.” … Cleveland is 19-3 since Nov. 11, including 8-3 on the road.Warriors: Durant averaged 32 points over his seven previous Christmas Day games. … Golden State played its fifth consecutive Christmas game and seventh in eight. … The Warriors were 10 of 37 on 3s after they went a dismal 3 for 27 from 3-point range in losing to the Nuggets. … Kerr began his pregame session by thanking all of the arena staff and Golden State employees for their service and for working on the holiday. … Thompson’s holiday sneakers might have stood out most: neon green on the left foot, neon pink on the right.

A large section of the West Coast of Demerara has been without potable water for the past week and residents are annoyed at the development, which is being called a regular occurrence.Reports indicate that the water pressure has been low for over two weeks and residents are forced to spend lengthy periods using small containers to “catch” water.However, as of the past week, the water has completely stopped and residents are unaware as to the cause.Guyana Times spoke to a number of the residents who are complaining of being significantly inconvenienced.One De Kinderen, West Coast Demerara (WCD), resident complained of having to purchase water for chores and hygiene purposes since she has no other alternative.According to the woman, she is currently constructing a home and as such, the water system is the only means of getting water.“I don’t have any water tanks or water barrels or anything at the moment, so I have no other means of getting water other than from the pipes and since they aren’t working, I literally have to purchase bottle water to shower and do dishes and so on and that is not cheap at all, it’s a struggle,” the resident complained.She noted that she attempted to make contact with the Guyana Water Incorporated but was given the royal run around.“I called and I told them that we weren’t getting water, well I actually told them to check into the matter because the water pressure was low and I was told by a representative that they would but well, we still have the problem, like nothing ain’t fix or I don’t know if they even inspected to see where the problem was coming from” the woman told this publication.A Meten-Meer-Zorg, WCD, resident also complained of similar issues with his water system.The man told this newspaper that he was also experiencing a shortage of potable water. He explained that on Tuesday, his water system completely stopped.“I can’t say but like something happen at the pump station because I hear is not me alone, but I went out there and I ain’t really see anything…thank God for the rain because it really help me out” the man explained.This publication was also informed that residents of De Willem, WCD, were also experiencing similar water woes.The Public Relations Officer of the Guyana Water Incorporated (GWI) when contacted said that the matter was investigated and reported that no issue was found at the well station in sourcing the affected areas with water.However, a major breakage is suspected and as such, the PRO ascertained that a team of engineers are presently investigating and checking the distribution networks to have the matter rectified swiftly.

You’re all set! “If you think you don’t want to go down this road, this is not for you,” Shames said. Wyeth plans to start Lybrel sales in July. The company hasn’t yet determined a price for the 28-pill packs. The pill contains a low dose of two hormones already widely used in birth-control pills, ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel. WASHINGTON – The first birth-control pill meant to put a stop indefinitely to menstrual periods won federal approval Tuesday. Lybrel is the first such pill to receive Food and Drug Administration approval for continuous use. Taken daily, the pill can halt women’s menstrual periods indefinitely and prevent pregnancies. Lybrel is the latest approved oral contraceptive to depart from a regimen of 21 days on and seven days off, standard since the 1960s. Manufactured by Wyeth of Madison, N.J., Lybrel is designed to put off periods altogether when taken without a break. The pill isn’t for everyone, an FDA official said. About half the women enrolled in studies of Lybrel dropped out, said Dr. Daniel Shames, a deputy director in the FDA’s drugs office. Many did so because of the irregular and unscheduled bleeding and spotting that can replace scheduled menstruation.
However, the formidable sight of Simeone’s side stands in their way.Since the Argentine took charge in 2011, Atletico have reached five European semi-finals in seven seasons, winning the Europa League in 2012 and reaching the Champions League final in 2014 and 2016.Costa was a constant thorn in Arsenal’s side during three years at Chelsea, scoring three times and losing just once in six meetings with the Gunners.But he has been sidelined since picking up a hamstring strain in Atletico’s quarter-final, second leg at Sporting Lisbon.“We will try to evaluate all the factors. We will speak among the doctors, himself and I to decide what the team needs most,” said Simeone on whether Costa will start or kept in reserve from the bench.“Yesterday he trained well and we will do what we deem to be right.“In Spain and England there are many teams that have suffered because of his characteristics not just Arsenal.”In contrast to Arsenal, Atletico are already assured their place in next season’s Champions League as they sit second, ahead of Real Madrid, in La Liga.However, despite punching above their weight against the might of Barcelona and Real Madrid under Simeone, Atletico haven’t won a trophy since 2014.Winning the Europa League in Simeone’s first season in charge in 2012 set the platform to win La Liga two years later, and he hopes recreating that winning feeling will spark another era of success.“Being a champion is different and the best teams in the world get stronger because of it,” he added.“It gave us the conviction and certainty that we were on the right road. Then the other titles came: Copa del Rey, La Liga, Spanish and European Super Cups, the two lost (Champions League) finals.“Now it has been a while since we won a trophy, but we keep trying.”Wenger also enjoyed great success in his first decade in charge of Arsenal, winning three Premier League titles.However, despite growing frustration from Arsenal fans over their inability to compete for the Premier League or Champions League in recent seasons, Simeone was glowing in his praise for Wenger’s durability.“I have admiration for a great professional. To be able stay so long at such a big club he had to reinvent himself.“I still think of myself as a young coach. I try to observe, learn and admire (his work). Coaches are always open (to criticism) and the place he has held in world football is marvellous.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Atletico Madrid’s Diego Costa – fit to face Arsenal on Thursday © AFP / Ben STANSALLLON DON, United Kingdom, Apr 25 – Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone confirmed Diego Costa will be fit to resume his rivalry with Arsenal in a Europa League semi-final, first leg on Thursday of huge significance for the English side.Arsenal are hoping to bid farewell to outgoing manager Arsene Wenger after 22 years in charge by winning the Frenchman’s first European trophy, and securing qualification for next season’s Champions League in the process.
