"I think first and foremost we're looking for a great partner. ... I think we're looking for a person with great character and integrity.

And what's the detailed plan on how they want to achieve this identity."

WilliamR nieuw onderwerp ' New Orleans Pelicans Face Masks - NBA Face Masks Online Sale' aangemaakt in het forum. 2 weeks ago

Their defense likely received less hype entering this season, but it’s been the best part of the team with the NBA’s best record so far at 6-1.

"Monday night saw the No.1 seed Milwaukee Bucks open their Eastern Conference semi-final matchup in the NBA playoffs with the Miami Heat. For anybody who has watched the Heat play this season, especially in Orlando, you’ll know that we were going to be in for an exhilarating series here. And Game 1 was just that.

There was plenty going on in this one, and if this game was a benchmark for the rest of this series then it’s going to be a special one. The Bucks haven’t looked themselves through their time in Orlando and that’s pretty worrying. But, when you have Giannis Antetokounmpo on your team, surrounded by the depth that he is, then all form goes out the window. The Heat, however, had different ideas, and the area of the game that effectively gave them the basis to go on and clinch this opening game was a surprising one.

The Milwaukee Bucks have the best interior defense in the entire NBA this season, allowing just 38.7 points in the paint per game, while the Heat rank 28th in scoring in the paint, with 43.9 points per game coming in that area. So you’ve got the best defense inside against one of the worst offenses inside. That doesn’t seem like a great thing considering the task that the Heat was coming up against in Giannis and the Bucks. But, that narrative didn’t seem to matter to head coach Erik Spoelstra and his team."

The Boston Celtics are set to take on the Miami Heat in a rematch of the 2019-20 Eastern Conference Finals, but will they have their two key guards for the matchup?

As the two teams prepare for their first meeting of this shortened season, the Bulls are dealing with a COVID-19 scare within the organization, which includes positive tests for five-year guard Tomas Satoransky and a team support-staff member, according to head coach Billy Donovan.  Boston Celtics Face Masks

But Clay played an important role in the history of hockey safety. Clay created the first clear hockey visor in 1964 after he lost his left eye to a high stick.

"So the [situation] isn't like, well, we demand a renegotiation. To the contrary, it's we see the way the system is going to be impacted. Is it something that makes sense to deal with in the context of everything else that we may have to do, which is out of the ordinary and unanticipated, in order to be in a position to possibly play?"

Early Days – Little to No Protective Equipment
In the early days of hockey, there were no helmets, facemasks, or any sort of protective equipment, it just wasn’t anyone’s top priority. Not surprisingly, facial lacerations, concussions, and other head injuries were pretty common. It was rare in those days to see an NHL player who wasn’t missing a few front teeth.

The first hockey player to regularly wear a helmet was George Owen when he played for the Boston Bruins from 1928-29. Back then, helmets and protective gear weren’t required to play the game. In fact, due to peer and fan pressure, many players felt ridiculed and ashamed to wear a helmet.

The 1960s
Despite the repeated injuries, lacerations, concussions, and knocked-out teeth, the majority of hockey players refused to don protective gear for the next 40 years, until an incident in the late 1960’s would change the outlook on safety in hockey.

During a Minnesota North Stars game in January of 1968, Bill Masterton, the center for the North Stars, was skating towards an open puck after a pass. Before he could maneuver out of the way, two opposing players body checked him causing him to lose his balance and fall backwards, slamming his unprotected head into the hard ice.

Modern-Day NHL Helmets
As technology has progressed, so has the technology that goes into hockey helmets, and sporting helmets of all kinds. As concussions and lingering head injuries become a growing problem for players during their careers, and even after they retire, helmets are an ever important part of the game.

NHL’s older coaches debate wearing masks, taking precautions Toronto Maple Leafs Team NHL Face Coverings

Alaska’s lead doctors now strongly recommend wearing face coverings for sports, especially for indoor sports, including playing basketball, wrestling, cheerleading, and playing hockey and indoor soccer. That same strong recommendation for mask wearing goes for adults working out, running on treadmills, or exercising in other ways in indoor gyms. The exception? Swimmers can’t wear a mask when their faces are in the water (but they do need to wear one on the pool deck). NHL Face Coverings

Illustration of soap and glasses
Wash your glasses with soapy water. Then shake off the excess and let them air dry, or gently dry them with a soft tissue. Healthcare practitioners who wear glasses or protective goggles (like surgeons) have done this for decades. This technique leaves a thin film that reduces surface tension that builds up from your breath, causing the water molecules to spread out evenly into a transparent layer that defogs your glasses. Shaving cream can also work.

The Lakers' level of interest in a Gasol reunion is unclear. Gasol has not played 5-on-5 since undergoing surgery, he said. He has set up 2-on-2 games with local players, including a former Stanford player and an employee of an NBA team who spends offseasons in the Bay Area, Gasol said.

Rogers: It doesn't sound like a big deal now, but when the Yankees inked Winfield to that 10-year contract in 1980, it shocked the sports world.

The game was held in an arena with no fans in attendance, as the National Collegiate Hockey Conference starts its season at Baxter Arena in Omaha, Nebraska, for a three-week "pod" event. North Dakota is the No. 1-ranked team in the country.

The Lightning look ripe for a giveaway, I'll give you that. By that I mean losing a valuable player like Cirelli or Cernak, each a restricted free agent, because of the salary cap issues. They have to move players out to sign them. Are the Sharks a team that can swoop in and make something happen? Sure. It comes down to who or what they're willing to part with. But they wouldn't be alone as a suitor for either Cirelli, a forward, or Cernak, a defenseman. They are two of the most valuable remaining RFAs, so as much as the Lightning might be in a bind when it comes to the cap, if they are eventually resigned to having to move one or both of these players, they likely could drum up a pretty good bidding war and stock their NHL Draft capital in a meaningful way. Remember, Tampa Bay's only first-round pick in the past three years was forward Nolan Foote (No. 27 in the 2019 NHL Draft), and he was traded to the New Jersey Devils with the Lightning's first-round pick in the 2020 NHL Draft for forward Blake Coleman on Feb. 26. Of the Lightning's 10 first-round picks since 2010, only goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy (No. 19 in the 2012 NHL Draft) and defenseman Cal Foote (No. 14 in the 2017 NHL Draft) are with the team. Edmonton Oilers Team NHL Face Coverings

But the Lightning will try to trade forward Tyler Johnson ($5 million AAV) and/or forward Alex Killorn ($4.45 million AAV) before they go down the road of potentially moving out Cirelli and/or Cernak.

The Giants won a game few thought they could at the Seattle Seahawks. Washington won a game few thought it could by defeating the previously unbeaten Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field. The Browns throttled the Tennessee Titans in Nashville.

They have all of the excuses at the ready, including first-year coach Mike McCarthy did not have an offseason to fully implement his program. The radical change on defense needed time to take hold. And, oh, the injuries. Prescott is out for the season because of a compound fracture of his right ankle. Left tackle Tyron Smith's season ended after two games because of neck surgery. Right tackle La'el Collins did not play a snap because of hip surgery.

Our tips on how to communicate when wearing face masks or coverings
Where it is necessary to wear face masks or coverings to comply with public health guidance, we encourage families and professionals to be flexible and creative in how they communicate with deaf children and young people, depending on the resources they have to hand and the situation they find themselves in. Options might include:

The company is making its first batch of masks and gowns using materials typically used to make jerseys for the Philadelphia Phillies and New York Yankees. Other team jersey materials will be featured as production expands. Philadelphia Eagles Face Masks

Instead, McCarthy calmly told his players they needed to do two things over the last 30 minutes. They needed to take care of the ball better. And they needed to steal a possession. New York Giants Face Masks

While we’ve found some of the best fabric face masks online, there’s one that stands out from the rest — one that A-listers like Lucy Hale, Joe Jonas, Aston Kutcher, Madelaine Petsch, Olivia Wilde and more have been spotted wearing. Peep Lucy Hale below wearing said face mask earlier this year.

If you’re ready to ditch disposable face masks for good to start wearing reusable ones that are washer-friendly, Rothy’s fabric face mask is a best seller that’s proven not to stick to your face. The proof? I’ve tested it out.

On the inside of the mask, you’ll find a nose piece that helps keeps the mask’s shape, which ultimately helps the mask rest on the tip of your nose, so that the rest of the fabric is not completely resting on your face. It sits close to your face but not too tight or in a way where you feel like you can’t breathe.

I recently wore the Rothy’s mask on a long flight, and it didn’t cause any irritation or discomfort. The only downside to this mask is that the ear loops are not adjustable. If you love the flexibility of tightening or loosening your mask, this one might not be for you. However, I can attest to its comfiness without the adjustable straps.

While Beal missed all seven of his 3-point attempts, he scored 15 points and hit seven field goals. Beal averaged 30.5 points last season but drew the majority of the opposing defense's attention as the Wizards' lone star.

The Jets and Jacksonville Jaguars have the same record, but the Jaguars own the tiebreaker edge because they have played the weaker schedule. The Jets might have blown their shot at Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence, the presumptive top pick.

Rams fall flat, out of NFC West lead after embarrassing loss to Jets
In any other season, a win over a quality team such as the Rams (9-5) would've triggered celebration among Jets fans. Not this time. The fan base has been buzzing about the prospect of selecting Lawrence, but the draft landscape has changed.

James Harden indicated to the Houston Rockets before training camp that he would be open to a trade to the Philadelphia 76ers or possibly other contenders, sources told ESPN. Minnesota Timberwolves Face Masks

Under new head coach Stephen Silas, Houston won’t play the exact same way this year — instead of isolating as often as Harden did, there’s a plan to add variance to the offense. That’s good news for — and probably thanks to — Wood. He can easily slide into an offensive system keyed off of Harden’s stepback-or-drive brand of basketball — according to Second Spectrum, Wood’s effective field-goal percentage on catch-and-shoot threes ranked in the 81st percentile among all players who took at least 90 of them. But using him as a taller Covington would be like crossing the Mississippi River in a yacht: He has so much more to offer.

"We have conversations," Curry said Monday during a video conference with reporters. "Everything's on the table right now. Everything I've talked about about being a Warrior and what the future holds. Obviously [I'm] fully committed on what that is. And understanding I've got to do what's right for me and the team and having those conversations. I feel blessed to be in that position where I can say that and truly believe that, so it's a matter of just letting things play out the way they should and that's kind of where we're at right now."

"The Milwaukee Bucks have revolutionized the way defense is played in the NBA. They take away the rim and force opponents to get the bulk of their offense from the mid-range and behind the 3-point line. They had the NBA’s best defense in the regular season, but surrendered a massive number of 3s along the way to the tune of 37.1 per 100 possessions. As it happens, their second-round matchup in the NBA playoffs, the Miami Heat, might be the best-crafted team to derail their quest to the Finals.

The Heat were just seventh in 3-point attempts, putting up just 35.4 per 100 possessions, but they were prolific in efficiency. They shot 37.9 percent from behind the arc, behind only the Utah Jazz and their 38.0 percent.

In the NBA, scheme matters, but personnel still gets the job done. For the Miami Heat, they’ve definitely got the personnel, and as Hassan Whiteside would say, they’ve got shooters.

The Heat have four players shooting over 40.0 percent from 3-point range, led by Duncan Robinson at 44.6 percent (on an incredible 8.3 attempts per game), Jae Crowder at 44.5 percent (since coming over at the trade deadline from the Memphis Grizzlies), Meyers Leonard at 41.4 percent and Kelly Olynyk at 40.6 percent.

Just outside this most elite of classes are Tyler Herro at 38.9 percent and Goran Dragic at 36.7 percent, and streaky scoring rookie Kendrick Nunn who can fill it up with a volume approach at 35.0 percent." Los Angeles Clippers Face Masks

In most cases, this situation would foretell a Rubicon-crossing nightmare. But Christian Wood, one of the offseason’s most desirable free agents, gives Houston a silver lining, whether Harden sticks around or is dealt in the near future. Orlando Magic Face Masks Face Masks

The Rockets and the Sixers have had no substantive talks about a potential Harden deal, sources said.

“What is next for us? Throughout the year we will keep coming together as an organization to keep bringing that,” Russell said. “Minnesota is a place where we can continue to bring that voice.”

THE HOUSTON ROCKETS' culture in the James Harden era, which bridges two owners and now four head coaches, might be best summed up by a former staffer's three words:

Unless they were on the front end of a back-to-back set, it was essentially a sure thing that the Rockets stayed overnight -- or even an extra day -- after games in Los Angeles, Phoenix and other road cities that rank among Harden's favorite stops.

"I was a little like, 'Damn.' Once I got the whole transcript, I was like, 'Damn,'" James said, adding that he made sure to read Irving's full comments before reacting to them. "I wasn't like, 'Oh, you trippin'. I've hit game-winning shots my whole life.' I was not like that. I was like, 'Damn.' Because ... I played with Kyrie for three seasons [with the Cleveland Cavaliers]. The whole time when I was there, I only wanted to see him be a MVP of our league. I only cared about his success. And it just didn't align. It just didn't align. And we were able to win a championship. That's the craziest thing. We were still able to win a championship, and we could never align. But I only cared about his well-being, both on and off the floor. Memphis Grizzlies Face Masks

Gobert has developed into one of the NBA's most dominant big men during his seven seasons in Utah, which traded for the 27th overall pick in the 2013 draft to select the 7-foot-1 Frenchman and assigned him to what was then called the D League for most of his rookie season. Chicago Bulls Face Masks

"I didn't have to make it to the Finals and lose it to realize how bad that I wanted to win it," Butler said. "But I think everybody here realized that it's very possible, that we're capable of making it happen. So I'm with the guys, we're just working together, to figure out a way, figure out that formula. Obviously, being healthy, get us there again, and this time we'll do what we're supposed to do."

"You could see in the first half really how many open shots we got," Wizards forward Davis Bertans said of Westbrook's impact. "And how many good looks we had and it was all I would say Russ.

After being held out of the Wizards' first two preseason games, Westbrook played in the team's final tuneup before the regular-season opener at Philadelphia on Dec. 23. Westbrook finished with 8 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists and shot 4-for-10, including 0-for-3 from behind the arc.

"It was good," Westbrook said of his first game as a Wizard. "We won, the most important part ... I like where we were tonight.

The Wizards saw Westbrook's influence on offense in the ability Bradley Beal had to work one-on-one against defenders and how much the Wizards tried to push the pace. Washington led by as much as 16 and had 10 fast-break points in the first half when Westbrook played.

Once the Gordon Hayward shoe dropped, it seemed like all was lost. The Hornets weren’t even willing to play ball on a sign-and-trade. Instead electing to waive and stretch Batum (which would have resulted in $9M in dead money over the course of the next 3 seasons). It was the worst case scenario for the Celtics because their options for adding talent dwindled down to using the full MLE and the bi-annual exception. NBA Face Masks & NBA Face Covers

Fans turned even more vicious, pelting Allen with debris from the stands, eventually forcing him to wear a helmet while playing the field. Nor was the abuse confined to the ballpark. A few days after the fight, someone called Allen’s wife at home and threatened to murder her husband. Others vandalized his house and tore up his lawn with their cars. Allen had lasting physical damage from the fight, too. In an interview years later with the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR), teammate Pat Corrales recalled that Allen’s shoulder swelled to twice its normal size overnight and said, “he couldn’t lift that shoulder for a while, and it bothered him for some time.” It’s likely the fight affected his performance on the field: Before the fight, he was hitting .335, but afterward, he hit only .271 the rest of the season.

While in their home cities, players and staff are banned from visiting bars, lounges, malls or other places where groups of people are gathered.

Maybe the Phillies, as constituted, are built to collapse. But again, maybe there's a lot of chance involved here. If the Phillies' two good halves hadn't been the first halves of 2018 and 2019 but, say, the first and second half of one of those years, they're in the playoffs with 90-some wins. If COVID-19 had shortened either of the 2018 or 2019 seasons, instead of 2020, they'd have been in the playoffs. If COVID had shortened 2020 to 50 games instead of 60, they'd have been in the playoffs. If COVID had shortened it to 70 games instead of 60, they might well have been too.

Jeff Passan: As partial as I am to the Carter/Alomar/McGriff/Fernandez blockbuster trade in 1990, the only answer is the Texas Rangers signing Alex Rodriguez to a 10-year, $252 million deal at the 2000 meetings in Dallas. It's the single most consequential contract in sports history. Cleveland Indians Face Masks

The Hall of Fame announced last week it was postponing the upcoming Golden Days Era Committee elections to next year. When the committee next meets in the autumn of 2021, though, it won’t just be a referendum on Allen’s career, but an opportunity for the Hall to confront the fraught history of systemic racism in baseball.
