Lopez was the aggressor, while Ortiz employed a cautious strategy that resulted in exchanges that were few and far between.

    NBA In-Season Tournament: Next Steps Ahead for Adam Silver

    In international basketball competitions outside North America, the point differential tiebreaker is standard. This isn’t the case for the NBA, which stirred up some confusion for players. Teams leveraged running up the score in late games. “I’m not ready necessarily to move away from it, but if ultimately there’s going to be a sense, particularly from our American fans, that somehow it is an indication of poor sportsmanship, that’s not a good idea for us to be doing it,” Silver said. Silver is reluctant to make any changes but has been aware of the implications it may pose for the fans. The NBA league office has discussed the addition of…

    Washington Huskies previes: 2024 Sugar Bowl vs. Texas

    It’s the College Football Semifinals on Monday, January 1, as the second-ranked Washington Huskies face number three Texas at the Sugar Bowl. The 12-0 Washington Huskies play on New Year’s Day in what some consider their biggest game ever. In the National Championship Semifinal, they face the third-ranked Texas Longhorns at the Sugar Bowl. According to CBS Sports, UT is favored by 3.5 points. They also report the over/under is 63.5, so the score would be like 34 to 30. That shouldn’t phase the Huskies, as they were underdogs to the Oregon Ducks in the Pac-12 Championship game, too. And they proved the critics wrong. In the last matchup between…

    Best Sunrise Spot In Thailand

    38 The Samet Nangshe viewpoint in Thailand is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen in my travels. It’s also fairly easy to get there by driving from the tourist island of Phuket. This viewpoint overlooks the spectacular Phang Nga Bay, a Thai national park with dozens of small islands. The sunrise at Samet Nangshe is especially nice because the sun rises directly over the bay! You can visit Samet Nangshe viewpoint on a day trip from Phuket and go back in the same day, or you can stay a night or two at the Samet Nangshe Boutique hotel, which has a pool and rooms that overlook the…
