You might look at the way Cleveland*s lagged since Thomas* entry into the lineup, and at Thomas* individual struggles to knock down shots or hold up defensively, and wonder why Lue didn*t decide to move the former Boston Celtics All-Star to the bench. Maybe in favor of, say, reserve Jose Calderon, a steady caretaker who started on the ball during the season*s lone stretch of sustained success. Cleveland went 16-6 in 22 Calderon starts between Nov. 20, 2017, and Jan. 3, 2018, the last game before Thomas* comeback.

Lee Nguyen is presently in soccer purgatory, but one gets the impression that from his standpoint, it beats being in soccer hell. Nguyen was officially a no-show Tuesday as the New England Revolution opened training camp. His desire to be traded has been widely reported, but sources confirmed to ESPN FC that New England has refused to even entertain the idea. Now with Nguyen sitting out, GM Mike Burns made it clear the Revs will take a hardline approach.

So, naturally, with their Eagles going to the Super Bowl for the first time in 13 years, for every story about Nick Foles or a dominant defensive line, there is a headline about the fans themselves. And mostly, of course, about their raucous or appalling behavior.. "Unlikely Phils would be high bidder, but if player fell into their range - preferably short-term - they might jump," Rosenthal wrote.The Phillies' current projected payroll for 2018 is around million. Even by adding a pitcher like Darvish or Jake Arrieta to a one-year deal worth, say, million, the Phils still wouldn't have an egregiously high payroll. In fact, they'd still have one of the 10 lowest projected payrolls. It would make them a whole lot more competitive in 2018 and perhaps more intriguing to next year's class..While some see the NFL letting the Oakland Raiders off easy with the Rooney Rule, there is a rumor they are pushing for them to sign Colin Kaepernick.

Mike Zimmer is in the market for a starting quarterback and an offensive coordinator. Two job openings linked closely together that will have a significant impact on the direction the Vikings take following an NFC Championship Game appearance. Zimmer has to get this right. Both decisions. Often when teams go searching for a quarterback and offensive coordinator, something went horribly wrong. They're usually starting over. That's not Zimmer's reality. His team is built to contend now. The Vikings' no-show dud in Philadelphia won't lower expectations by meaningful degree, as long as Zimmer and general manager Rick Spielman don't whiff on those two pressing needs 每 quarterback and offensive coordinator.That's why Bill Belichick credited one current and one former member of the coaching staff, Josh McDaniels and Mike Lombardi, with helping the Patriots land those two key offensive cogs a week-and-a-half before taking on the Eagles in Super Bowl LII.Amendola, who scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns in the AFC title game against the Jaguars to help the Patriots overcome a 10-point deficit, spent just 2011 season with McDaniels (then the Rams offensive coordinator), and Amendola was hurt for the majority of that year, playing in just one regular-season game.Though that doesn't seem like much, Belichick said McDaniels' experience with Amendola was critical in knowing he was a player the Patriots should pursue. Without any assurances that Wes Welker would be back in 2013, that's exactly what they did. Really, the light went on with Josh," Belichick said Wednesday. "Josh was here. Josh had had him in St. Louis, and we saw a good player in St. Louis, but you didn't see all the things behind the scenes that you kind of can see when you actually have the player on your team.Josh saw that, and he made me aware of -- us aware -- of what all the things that Danny does, and how well he does [them], and what his skills were and so forth. That's kind of when it started, and once we got him here, then all that became evident to everybody who works with him.".More new colorways of the Nike Zoom Spiridon continue to pop up, including this dark combination of Elemental Gold, Anthracite, and purple. Anthracite makes up for the lower half of its upper and midsole, while golden detailing adorns the Nike branding, laces, and piping on this silhouette. While there is no specific connection to ACG designs of the past, one cannot help but draw connections to the Mowabb and other models that have borrowed its colorway like the Air Huarache.

  • Due to Thomas* hip injury, and Lue electing to bring Thompson off the bench after his mid-December return from a calf strain that knocked him out of the lineup for five weeks, we haven*t seen a ton of that particular 1-5 pairing 〞 65 minutes in eight games, with the Cavs getting outscored by a smooth 21 points in that time. Similarly, the new starting five 〞 Thompson-Love-James-Smith-Thomas 〞 has only shared the floor for eight minutes, so it*s going to need some time to work out the kinks and develop some rhythm.

  • Coming in all sizes, this Suede design takes on a black velour upper with a red velour lining that matches its piping to create an unmistakably classic aesthetic. Extra swagger dresses up the design by way of co-branded gold accents, while a commemorative Suede 50 logo can be found on its tongue. Of course, it wouldn*t be a Suede if you couldn*t choose your laces, as this design comes with black, red, and white options.

    • ※I only had one,§ Amendola said, via Mike Reiss of ESPN. ※They put your name on the back and everything, and I guess they were selling it for some reason. [A friend] bought it, sent it to me framed and said, &Hang this on your wall so you*ll never forget the day they cut you.* I have it hanging. I*ll never forget that. I learned a lot there, but at the end of the day.Amendola signed with the Eagles* practice squad January 7, 2009 with Philadelphia still in the postseason. He stayed with the team in the offseason and through the preseason before being released. The Eagles re-signed him to the practice squad, where he lasted two weeks before the Rams signed him to their active roster.※I was very low on the depth chart and learning, but I got some great tutelage from some really good coaches,§ Amendola said of his days in Philadelphia. ※There were a lot of good receivers there, too: Jason Avant, DeSean Jackson. Jeremy Maclin. Hank Baskett. Kevin Curtis was there; a guy I learned a lot from. I still carry those relationships on now with most of those guys.§

  • "I think we got back to our defensive fundamentals," said reserve point guard Fred VanVleet, who scored a team-high 19 points. "A little bit better rhythm within our offense, passing the ball, we had it moving a little better. Guys were able to knock down shots and just play unselfish basketball."The Jazz (20-28) are 6-19 on the road after they rallied to defeat the Detroit Pistons 98-95 in overtime on Wednesday to go 4-6 in their past 10. The Jazz were coming off a loss to the Hawks on Monday."We were down late and were able to string together some stops," Jazz coach Quin Snyder said after the game on Wednesday. "It's good to win. We missed a few layups and some open shots, but we made them when we needed to."The Raptors already have a win over the Jazz, a 109-100 verdict on Nov. 3 in Salt Lake City, and are going for a season sweep of Utah for the fourth time in the past five seasons.As the Raptors press to gain home-court advantage through the conference finals, coach Dwane Casey still has concerns, particularly with the way the team has performed late in close games."Where we're having an issue is at the end of games," Casey told the Toronto Sun. "We've changed dramatically from being one of the top offensive teams in the league to bottom five in the league in the last five minutes."In games in which the difference in the score is five points or fewer with five minutes or fewer remaining, the Raptors have gone from sixth and 10th in field-goal percentage and points-per-game during clutch time last season to 21st and 17th in those categories this season."A lot of that is. ... disorganization between what we're doing as far as moving the ball, ball movement, playing to our triggers, and that's what we've got to get back to," Casey said. "We kind of fell back from that, some of it is personnel-driven, different personnel in the game (at) the end of the game, whether it's a defensive unit that we have in, so we have to get that organized as a staff to make sure guys understand what we're doing last five minutes of the game."We have to continue to play in our triggers and not go into so-called 'called' plays the last five minutes of the game.""Last year, we always reverted to going to a lot of isolation every time down," Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan said. "This time around, we are still getting a feel for trying to move the ball, trying to put the isolation game in and trying to figure it out. There are so many elements that we are still trying to figure out rather than going with what works or whatever has been working throughout the game and carrying it over to that moment."Meanwhile, there have been reports of tension with the Jazz as trade rumors abound and the team has struggled since posting a 13-11 record after winning their sixth straight game on Dec. 4. Jazz guard/forward Joe Ingles suggests that the reports are exaggerated."The end of the day it's really only us and the coaching staff and the guys in the locker room that knows what's going on," Ingles told the Salt Lake Tribune. "Everyone else just assumes and makes assumptions or does what they have to do. I love how we've stuck together.""We have a bunch of guys who want to get better and want to be better, that's been our biggest thing," Jazz rookie guard Donovan Mitchell said. "When you have guys like Joe who defend our locker room and our team, it's just leaders like that who keep guys together."

  • He*s not super vocal. If he*s not saying anything, he probably likes it. Actually, one of the obstacles we had with the PG 1 was just getting him to say when he didn*t like something. He*s kinda like the guy who doesn*t want to hurt your feelings, but we encourage him to tell us how he really feels. That was something we had to break through, for him to be comfortable enough to say what he wanted to say to us, and we*ve that for a while now.

  • The Warriors, whose average of 115.9 points per equates to 29 per quarter, failed to reach that mark in 10 games didn't reach 25 points in seven of the games.The sweetest-shooting team in the league at 51.0 percent from the field, the Warriors were below that standard eight times and below 40 percent three times.
    Another subtle hint to the past comes by way of the old ※Feet You Wear§ face logo that can be seen hear as part of the midsole, adding another touch of nostalgia to this futuristic silhouette. The Crazy BYW will arrive at adidas.com and select retailers in limited quantities on January 27th and will then gear up for a wider release on February 15th.The ongoing partnership between Stella McCartney and the Three Stripes is back on BOOST with a brand new look for the adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged. While most partnerships with McCartney have featured a wild approach like the Ultra Boost x High, these three iterations add embroidered details that offer a sophisticated look to the sans-cage runner 每 an already existing model. Each selection comes with two ※Stella McCartney§ embroidered details that adorn both the heel and tongue tabs in matching fonts which has become customary with this pairing.

  • If you've been keeping up with the Cleveland Cavaliers drama that's reportedly focused on Kevin Love, you're probably going to look for signs on the court that there's serious trouble in the locker room. That brings us to this video from Tuesday's Cavaliers loss to the San Antonio Spurs - Love got knocked down in the paint as LaMarcus Aldridge scores over him. Then? Hmmm. It sure looks like Jae Crowder steps right over Love, who has a hand up to ask for some help. Now, look: It could be that Crowder had to grab the ball for an inbounds pass or perhaps risk a delay-of-game if he picked up Love. Or he was frustrated that the Cavs were down by 13 at that point. Maybe we're all reading too much into.The MLB Daily Dish is a daily feature we're running here at MLBDD that rounds up roster-impacting news, rumors, and analysis. Have feedback or have something that should be shared? Hit us up at @mlbdailydish on Twitter or @MLBDailyDish on Instagram. The Diamondbacks have signed a hodgepodge of small deals, snagging Medlen and Bastardo to minor-league deals. We*re not going to sugar coat it〞the stove is so cold it*s actually a freezer. But is there light at the end of this frigid tunnel? These are the one remaining free-agent fit for every team. The Tigers have signed Alexi Amarista to a minor-league deal . The Cash Man is letting this one go. Gotta save his strength, assumably. The Yankees are.In the first two games of a three-game homestand that ends with the Trail Blazers visiting American Airlines Center on Friday night, the Mavs routed one playoff team (Washington) and were humbled by another (Houston).The Blazers (26-22) got the best of the Mavericks in a 117-108 win on Jan. 20 in Portland, and they're closer to the Wizards than the Rockets in terms of talent level.嚗

  • Manziel would draw eyeballs like few other players who would consider the XFL. We*ll see how serious McMahon was about allowing players in if they have a spotty past.
