Duterte calls himself, Go, Cayetano ‘the brightest stars’ in PH politics “(Sabonis) was a monster down there,” Pacers coach Nate McMillan said. “Just defending, rebounding, initiating offense. Had to play a lot of minutes, but was fired up and I thought we rode his energy.”Sabonis carried the frontcourt load when Myles Turner left the game after spraining his right ankle in the first quarter.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGreatest ever?SPORTSFormer PBA import Anthony Grundy passes away at 40SPORTSSan Miguel suspends Santos, Nabong, Tubid indefinitely after ‘tussle’ in practice“It’s tough,” Sabonis said about losing Turner. “Because it’s the beginning of the season, we’re also trying to find each other and find that chemistry and play together, and obviously he’s going to be out for a little bit. It’s tough. I wish him a speedy recovery. When he comes back he’s going to help us, he’s the best defender in the league.”Malcolm Brogdon added 21 points and 13 assists for Indiana. Matteo Guidicelli had saved up for Sarah G’s ring since 2014? Kyrie Irving led Brooklyn with 28 points, Spencer Dinwiddie had 20 and Caris LeVert 15. The Nets have lost two in a row to fall to 1-3.“We’re not really running anything (on offense),” Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said. “In training camp you’re practicing a lot, but you have a nice flow, you kind of know what you’re doing. I think we’ve lost a little bit of our structure and organization, which is natural with a new team and new guys.”The Pacers took their largest lead at 112-96 on Brogdan’s 3-pointer with 4:43 remaining. Indiana took a 90-83 lead into the fourth quarter, with Sabonis and Lamb each scoring seven points in the third.With three new starters in Irving, DeAndre Jordan and Taurean Prince, the Nets have become more of an isolation team than the cohesive group from a season ago.“Basketball has a way of being sequentially sound or it can be sequentially off completely,” Irving said. “Be able to weather the storm out there. Some possessions are not going to be perfect. We want to limit the mistakes out there where you have opportunities to attack the basket, shoot threes and get everyone confident. Wins and losses come and go. It just gives us a chance to dive into practice and really take it day by day. The details are really what separates the good and the bad teams in the league.”ADVERTISEMENT Duterte officials’ paranoia is ‘singularly myopic’ Someone from the Philippines could win a $208 million jackpot this week!

The number of Brits booking cheap flights to Spain

Posted on by

first_imgThe number of Brits booking cheap flights to Spain will ensure the country becomes the UK’s most popular holiday destination in 2010.This is according to the Association of Independent Tour Operators (AITO), which predicts that Spain will remain number one in spite of the growing popularity of Turkey and Egypt.AITO spokesman Ian Bradley explained that Turkey and Egypt are continuing to be discovered by Brits, partly due to the fact that they lie outside of the eurozone.”But we know that by the end of the year, Spain will once again be by far the most popular holiday destination,” he commented.”[Customers] need to bear in mind that many hotels throughout the eurozone, particularly in Spain, have slashed their prices.”Mr Bradley also said that the Easter weekend is one among the busiest times of year for the travel industry and is regarded as “the curtain raiser to the summer”.Figures from the International Air Transport Association published this week showed that demand for international flights increased by 9.5 per cent in February compared to the same month in 2009, which spells good news for airlines as summer approaches.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map RelatedFewer European visitors leads to ‘more enjoyable’ continental holidaysPeople booking flights to Europe this year are having a more enjoyable time because of the fewer number of visitorsSpanish destinations will become popular again in the long-term, AITO saysSpanish destinations will become popular again in the long-term, AITO saysBrits booking cheap flights to Europe this EasterBrits booking cheap flights to Europe this Easterlast_img read more
