201516 NBA Preview The Grizzlies Will Remain Good Not Great

The biggest obstacle Memphis must overcome to contend for a title is its barely above-average offense. The Grizzlies took the second-fewest threes in the league last season, which should have limited them to the highest-percentage shots, yet they still ranked near the bottom of the league in accuracy. And for all their low-post strength, they hardly ever tried to dunk. The Grizz usually have to find points the hard way, which eventually undid them against Golden State last year — their effective field goal percentage was well below the worst regular-season mark in the league in each of the series’ last three games. The same weakness could undo them against the very best Western teams in the playoffs again.With the help of CARMELO, here’s what’s in store for the key Grizzlies in 2015-16: Since coming to Memphis from Boston, Courtney Lee has been a solid but unspectacular No. 2, with good shooting efficiency and few turnovers — but also a low usage rate. On this veteran team, few veterans are as veteran as Zach Randolph. He showed no ill effects of aging last year — instead, he got better. Players like him, though, usually drop off quickly after a decade or more of low-post wear and tear. We’re inaugurating our NBA player projection system, CARMELO, with 2015-16 season previews for every team in the league. Check out the teams we’ve already previewed here. Learn more about CARMELO here. To bolster its veteran-heavy, defense-heavy, frontcourt-heavy roster, Memphis added … two veteran defensive forwards. Matt Barnes has aged well, as his 3-point-heavy style often does. Another former Celtic, Jeff Green was a regular contributor last year. But his days of above-replacement-level contributions could be over. The Memphis Grizzlies have emerged from the NBA-best West to reach the playoffs in eight of 15 seasons, including the last five. This past spring, they played the Warriors as tough as anybody, forcing Golden State to come back from down 2-1 in their conference semifinal series. This year, the Grizzlies have a good chance to reach 50 wins for the fourth straight season, thanks mostly to their defense. They’re strong and deep in the low post, they have a core that has played together for years, and they’ve added more than they subtracted in the offseason.FiveThirtyEight’s CARMELO projection system expects them to go 51-31. Always a top-notch defender, Marc Gasol is increasingly comfortable shouldering a big part of the Grizzlies’ offensive load. He used the ball — shot it or turned it over — on nearly a quarter of possessions last year, while increasing his shooting accuracy and assist percentage. Is he on track for more improvements, like Larry Nance, or a Brad Miller-like rapid decline? Mike Conley remains Memphis’s best offensive player, but his defense has dropped off in recent years. He’s playing fewer minutes, and, when he’s on the floor, he’s getting fewer steals — which we like quite a lot around here. Brandan Wright should guarantee little defensive drop-off when he spells starters, but he’s another low-usage, high-efficiency player on offense. Memphis has too many of those and not enough players setting them up.Read more:NBA player projections2015-16 NBA Previews read more

Kam Williams careerhigh point output leads Ohio State to 9743 win over

After 10 minutes and seven seconds, the No. 12 Ohio State men’s basketball team had just a seven-point lead against High Point on Wednesday night.Redshirt-freshman guard Kam Williams (15) shoots the ball during a game against High Point on Dec. 10 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 97-43, behind a career-high 23 points from Williams.Credit: Samantha Hollingshead / For The LanternThen redshirt-freshman guard Kam Williams was subbed into the game.Less than a minute after taking the floor, Williams hit a pull-up 3-pointer, then tacked on another five points in just over two minutes. By halftime, he had 13 points on four-for-four shooting from the floor as the Buckeyes took a 43-24 lead into the break.After the game, Williams said his success shooting the ball stems from the work he puts in between games.“Well I try to take all of my shots in the flow of the offense, and the shots I was taking today I practice those everyday,” he said. “The key is when you’re practicing to just take game time reps so when the game time comes it’s a lot easier.”After the game, coach Thad Matta agreed that Williams was shooting within the offense, and not forcing his attempts, which comes from an understanding of his job on the court.“Kameron obviously had a hot hand. I think he only hit the rim once or twice. All of his shots came within the system. I thought he did a great job of adjusting,” Matta said. “Kameron has done a great job of understanding his role and what he needs to do.”OSU’s first-half surge helped the Buckeyes (7-1) to a 97-43 win over the Panthers (6-3) for their second win in a row since losing to then-No. 5 Louisville on Dec. 2.Freshman forward Jae’Sean Tate said the loss to the Cardinals — which came after a fun-win run to start the season — was used as a learning point for the Buckeyes.“It (the loss) was an eye-opener, but you can’t really just keep thinking about that,” Tate said after the game. “You just gotta get up the next day and try to get better.”After High Point hit a free throw early in the second half, the Buckeyes took over to extend their lead to 30 with 15:50 to play. The lead ballooned to 36 just over two minutes later and then to 40 points with more than 10 minutes to play.By the 10-minute mark, Williams and freshman guard D’Angelo Russell each had 16 points to lead all players as the Buckeyes already had five different players in double digits.With 9:11 to play, sophomore forward Marc Loving hit two free throws, meaning all 10 OSU players to take the court had registered at least one point.Matta said he would like for the Buckeyes to keep up a balanced scoring output, but knows that won’t necessarily always be the case.“It is something that you hope can continue. We are going to play games where maybe we don’t have as many possessions or whatever,” Matta said. “The more balance you have as a basketball team, the better you can become down the stretch and without question, getting five guys in double figures, almost six is something that as a coach, it excites you.”Williams tacked on another four points in a row to give the Buckeyes an 85-41 lead with about six minutes to play. Those four points — coming on two mid-range jump shots — made him a 20-point scorer for the first time in his collegiate career.OSU shot 62.5 percent from the field, compared to a 32.1 percent clip from the Panthers.To go along with Williams’ instant-offense in the first half, Russell tallied 11 points in the opening 20 minutes as the Buckeyes shot 55.2 percent from the floor and made four of their first seven 3-point attempts.On its way to a 19-point first half lead, OSU outrebounded High Point, 23-11, and benefited from an eight-point advantage in points off the bench.Williams’ career-high 23 points led all players as Russell added 18 for OSU. Tate, senior guard Shannon Scott and senior forward Sam Thompson each finished in double figures as well, with 12, 11 and 10 points, respectively.Williams said the Buckeyes can be a dangerous team when every player on the floor successfully executes their role.“That’s the biggest key,” he said. “If everybody on our team does their job and brings energy, we’re gonna be a hell of a basketball team.”Williams finished the game eight-of-10 from the floor and four-of-five from beyond the 3-point arc.High Point redshirt-junior guard John Brown finished second in the game with 19 points.After outscoring his closest opponent by four points, Williams said he’s always had success as a shooter on the basketball court.“All my life that’s what I’ve been known to do, is put the ball in the bucket,” he said. “And that’s something that I’ve always had a knack for, so to me it wasn’t really a surprise.”Tate added that his teammate’s success shooting the ball wasn’t a shock to him, either.“He does that every day,” Tate said.The Buckeyes are set to return to the Schottenstein Center on Saturday to take on Morehead State at 1 p.m. read more

Martinez Now may be the right time for Hazard to leave

first_imgBelgium boss Roberto Martinez has made Eden Hazard’s future at Chelsea even more uncertain by suggesting that now may be the right time for him to leaveHazard has been strongly linked with moves to both Real Madrid and Barcelona recently with the winger himself having hinted that the prospect of ending his six-year spell at Chelsea for a move to Spain may be inviting.Having rejected a new contract and with just two years left on his current one, Hazard may be able to secure a move away from Stamford Bridge this summer and it appears that he will have Martinez’s blessing.“It could be the best time to try something different,” Martinez told radio show El Larguero, via ESPN.Tammy Abraham, ChelseaChelsea hat-trick hero Tammy Abraham hopes for more Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Tammy Abraham hopes this season will be his big breakthrough at Chelsea after firing his first hat-trick for the club in Saturday’s 5-2 win at Wolves.“He is a player who has the maturity and a lot of leadership. His play is based on talent. Hazard could carry a new project anywhere in the world. He is at the best moment of his career.“For me, it’s very easy to answer that question. He could fit in any team in the world. Players need new challenges and new projects. Perhaps it’s a good time for Chelsea and for Eden [to split]. I would be very surprised if Chelsea didn’t have big offers for him right now.”Hazard ended his superb World Cup campaign in style on Saturday by netting the second goal as Belgium secured a third-place finish after beating England 2-0.The 27-year-old scored a total of three goals and added two assists in his six games at Russia.last_img read more

Manoni Replaces Malkin as Source Media CEO

first_imgDoug Manoni, the ex-CEO of Wicks Business Information, has been named CEO of Investcorp-owned Source Media, replacing Jim Malkin, who has left the company. A Source spokesperson declined to comment on the circumstances surrounding Malkin’s departure.Source also said it was promoting Rich Antoneck, senior vice president of financial operations, to CFO. Antoneck succeeds Bill Johnston, who also is leaving the company.Manoni joined Source in September 2008 as executive vice president and managing director of its then recently-created banking division, which publishes magazines including American Banker and Bond Buyer. A month earlier, Source had reorganized into four strategic business groups and named a team to head each of those divisions. Among the four division leaders, Manoni was the only to carry the designation of corporate officer. It was unclear at the time why the other division heads did not have that same status.Summit Business Media, another publisher covering the financial industry, bought Wicks Business Information in July 2007 for an estimated $40 million.Malkin’s and Johnston’s departures represent the second such changing of the guard among trade publishers in recent weeks. Earlier this month, Paul Mackler left HMP Communications Holdings as chairman and CEO. In November, CFO Ken Fisher also left the company.last_img read more
