#1 Theyre giving up wide-open shots and their interior rotation von miaowang123 12.11.2019 08:58

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Dwyane Wade was a late scratch from the Miami Heats starting lineup against the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night because of nerve irritation in his left foot, leaving his status for the All-Star game in doubt. Wade sat out Tuesday nights victory at Phoenix with a migraine headache and appeared to be in good spirits before Miamis 111-110 win over the Warriors, chatting with reporters for nearly 10 minutes in the locker room. He was listed at his usual shooting guard spot and announced during pregame introductions, but seconds before tipoff the Heat said he would not play. Wade said he was travelling to New Orleans for Sundays game but isnt sure if hell play. "Im not optimistic. Im not pessimistic. I just want to get better," said Wade, a 10-time All-Star who was elected as a starter for the Eastern Conference this season. Wade said he started to warm-up when his foot began giving him problems and he went to the locker room. He said trainers officially diagnosed him with "foot drop," which is a weakness or paralysis of the muscles that lift the foot. "I started feeling a little something in my foot, getting a little numbness," Wade said. "But you dont think nothing of it. As time went on it started going up my leg a little bit, so the nerve going up my leg kind of shut down. Weirdest thing Ive ever (felt). When I was out there and moved around and warmed up, I felt I couldnt feel my foot. So I didnt want to do anything." Toney Douglas, who was traded from the Warriors to the Heat earlier this season, made his second straight start for Miami. It was the final game before the All-Star break for both teams. Wade has missed 15 games this season, with most of them part of the Heats plan to rest his nagging knees. For most of the previous two days, though, leg problems were the least of his concerns. Wade said he woke up Tuesday with a "pounding, pounding headache" after taking an afternoon nap in Phoenix and alerted trainers. He said he took medication and stayed back at the team hotel, listening to the game against the Suns in a dark room because the bright lights from the TV were bothering him. The Heat beat the Suns 103-97. Wade said he experienced another strong headache after the teams flight landed in the San Francisco Bay Area and took medicine that "knocked me out." He said he woke up Wednesday morning feeling normal. The 32-year-old Wade has experienced migraines at times throughout his career. Hes averaging 18.7 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.7 assists in 36 games this season. "If youve never experienced it before, you really dont understand," Wade said. "Theres just no rhyme or reason for it." Scott Heineman Jersey . The club was unable to retain hitting coach Kevin Seitzer, who is bound for Atlanta.

The 23-year-old Woods, Tiger Woods niece, closed with a 4-under 69 at Royal Pines to finish at 16-under 276. Lee also shot 69 in the event sanctioned by the European and Australian tours. Woods birdied the par-5 15th to open a two-stroke lead, hitting a wedge from about 120 yards to 4 feet.LeBron James looked over his shoulder, almost in disbelief.This isnt what he — or anyone else — imagined for the Cavaliers.As Utahs Gordon Hayward was mobbed by teammates after hitting a fadeaway shot over the outstretched arm of Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson at the buzzer to beat Cleveland 102-100 on Wednesday night, James peered back incredulously at the celebration one last time. He shook his head and walked to the locker room after a second stunning loss in 24 hours.The Cavs: James, fellow All-Stars Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love, picked by Vegas oddsmakers to win it all, are 1-3 and look nothing like championship contenders.Four games into the season, they are not gelling and something of a mess.Rome wasnt built in a day, James said.Neither are NBA title teams.Just a week into the season, the Cavaliers have major chemistry issues, a motionless offence and defensive holes they might not be able to address without making a trade or two. Rookie coach David Blatt has preached patience, but has already toyed with his starting lineup, replacing guard Dion Waiters with veteran Shawn Marion.One day after James played passively in a loss at Portland to prove a point to his young teammates, Cleveland tied a franchise record with just six assists against Utah. According to STATS LLC, the six assists are the fewest in a game for any NBA team scoring at least 100 points since 1985-86.Theres no way you can win a basketball game like that, just having six assists, said James, who had four of the six assists. We just cant win like that. We have to figure out a way to help each other and not make it so tough.And while some Cleveland fans are troubled by the slow start, James seems to be taking it in stride, posting a message on his Twitter page Thursday.James wrote: In the words of the great @AaronRodgers12 RELAX.Irving scored 34 points against the Jazz, but Clevelands starting point guard did not record an assist in 45 minutes — an alarming statistic for a player supposedly running his teams offence. Irvings performance came after James, without naming names, pointed toward some teammates playing selfishly in the 19-point loss to the Trail Blazers.Theres a lot of bad habits, a lot of bad habits been built up the past couple years, James said.Irving did speak with reporters following the loss in Portland, which included another statistical anomaly: James did not sccore in the second half.ddddddddddddJames is conflicted. Hes trying to decide whether to carry the Cavs or let them learn tough lessons through losses. The easy solution would be for the four-time MVP to take over games the way he used to, but James has a long-term vision for the Cavs.Hes willing to accept failure as long as it stimulates growth.I still got to figure out ways to get my teammates involved, too, James said after scoring 31 points, including Clevelands final six, in the loss to the Jazz. Cause it just cant be a one-, two- or three-man show. We have to do it together.Hes been through this before. When James joined Miami in 2010, the Heat ended up in the finals but started 9-8. James was subjected to the same scrutiny hes enduring now except he said there was anger behind the questions. This time around, the inquiries are less emotional but equally direct: Whats going on?For starters, James is still learning how to play with his new teammates and vice versa. There have been some sloppy moments as James, Love and Irving mesh after not being on the court together much in the preseason. The timing will come, but its going to take time.The Cavs, who play at Denver on Friday, have been atrocious defensively. Theyre giving up wide-open shots and their interior rotations were too slow against the Jazz, who scored 46 points in the paint and outrebounded the Cavs 41-30.Were going to get every teams best shot and weve got to understand weve got to play defence, Marion said. Weve got to guard somebody. Its easy to get points, but if you dont play defence youre not going to give yourself a chance.Blatts offence, based on the precise cutting and screening principles he learned while playing guard at Princeton, isnt working. The Cavs are standing and watching each other. Theyre not moving the ball in search of a better shot. There have been flashes, not nearly enough.Back when he announced his return to Cleveland, James cautioned the Cavs would face challenges. In his Sports Illustrated essay, James forecast failing would be part of the path to a title.Im not promising a championship, he said in July. I know how hard that is to deliver. Were not ready right now. No way. Of course, I want to win next year, but Im realistic. It will be a long process, much longer than it was in 2010. My patience will get tested.Perhaps sooner than he thought. ' ' '
