He also understands why they team intends to be cautious with him at first.“I’m OK with everything,” LaVine said. “I’ve got to be OK with that. That’s where you start, I know it’s not going to stay there. It’s just part of getting back. Even though I’m back, it’s the last part of me getting back with the little bit of restriction.“I know how to play, I know the way I want to play. I know it’s going to take a little time to get the rhythm back . but regardless I think I can do some things.”Coach Fred Hoiberg is excited to insert LaVine into the team’s up-tempo style of offense. LaVine shot 46 percent from the field and 39 percent of his 3-point tries last season. After a slow start offensively, Chicago has averaged 109.6 points per game over its last 18 contests.“(LaVine) does fit with how we are playing right now, pace has been really good,” Hoiberg said. “Really the last month of the season, the guys are starting to understand and get out and run and get things accomplished early in the possession, and Zach certainly fits into that as well, so he’s a guy who can shoot it — you have a lot of plays to get him shots coming off screens. I think he’ll be really good.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours 20 more Russian athletes, Mutko appeal Olympic doping bans LATEST STORIES Redemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie Thompson OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson The 22-year-old had surgery on Feb. 14 and was traded to Chicago along with Kris Dunn and the pick used to select first-rounder Lauri Markkanen.Thanks to a tireless rehab regimen, LaVine is ready to get back on the court for the team’s final 40 games.

Chicago won’t play LaVine in the second game of consecutive contests on Feb. 9-10 for precautionary reasons, Paxson said.“This is the continuation and ending of his rehab,” he said. “That’s how we’re looking at it.

Wind Warning Continues into Sunday evening


Henry eyes ‘dream’ job as Arsenal manager

first_imgWenger is under contract at Arsenal until 2019 but a failure to qualify for the Champions League for a second straight year would ramp up pressure for him to step down.Asked on-air after the game about whether replacing Wenger would appeal to him, the Sky Sports pundit, who is also a member of Belgium’s coaching staff, said: “I still have a job to do with Belgium, but let’s see what’s going to happen.“It will be a dream for me, but I’m still with Belgium.“Interested? Yes, who wouldn’t be? But I can’t talk about that out of respect for the man that is in charge still and my job that I’m doing right now with Belgium. But who wouldn’t be interested?”Henry, who was brought to Arsenal by Wenger in 1999, believes a lack of consistency is the key to the club’s troubles, with the Gunners having lost six games in all competitions since the turn of the year.“With Arsene, what is difficult is when you have bad momentum,” the 40-year-old told Sky Sports News on Monday.“The consistency is not always there and you need to be consistent. You need to also sometimes have some good games away from home.“The feeling with the fans is that you cannot brag about the win because next week we might be in trouble.“What’s difficult when you start to lose is getting that energy and commitment back. When you don’t win the league for a long time — 14 years running — that doesn’t help.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has already moved into coaching, working with the Belgian national team © AFP/File / Glyn KIRKLONDON, United Kingdom, Feb 26 – Arsenal’s all-time top scorer Thierry Henry said it would be a “dream” to manage the club, whose season is threatening to unravel after their capitulation to Manchester City in the League Cup final.Arsene Wenger’s side crumbled 3-0 at Wembley on Sunday and languish 10 points off the top four in the Premier League, with the Europa League their only chance of silverware this season.last_img read more

‘Lucky’ Mane trains sights on Real Madrid

first_img0Shares0000Liverpool forward Sadio Mane celebrates a goal during the Champions League semi-final against Roma © AFP/File / Isabella BONOTTOLONDON, United Kingdom, May 22 – Sadio Mane says he is a “lucky boy” to play alongside Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino in Liverpool’s devastating forward line as he bids to sink Real Madrid in the Champions League final.The Liverpool forward has struck 19 times this season and wants more as the Reds take on the holders for the European title in Kiev on Saturday. “I think more goals are coming,” said the Senegal international. “Of course I am happy but as a striker you’d love to score every single game to help your team.”Mane, 26, has been the junior partner in a formidable forward trio this season. Salah has led the way with an outstanding 44 goals while Firmino has weighed in with 27 in all competitions.“Like I have always said, I have always been enjoying playing alongside these great players,” said Mane. “They make everything easier for me. I am a lucky boy.“But we always talk about the front three. Don’t forget it starts from the guys behind. They make it easier. The power of Liverpool Football Club is the collective. We always do everything together, this is our power.”Real are chasing a third successive European crown, a fourth in the past five years and a record-extending 13th in total.Liverpool have won the title five times themselves but this is their first appearance in the final for 11 years and they did not even play in Europe last season.The Spanish giants are the clear favourites but Mane is confident Liverpool, who enjoyed impressive wins over Manchester City and Roma in the knockout stages, have enough quality to win.“It was not easy, especially from having the play-off against Hoffenheim and the group stage, but now we are in the final,” he said. “Maybe that is a surprise for many people but for us it’s something we have always believed in.“Of course it will not be easy because we know they have experience and also they have qualities in the team. We respect them a lot but we also have players and staff to beat any team in the world.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
