Grizzlies coach Fizdale fined US$30000 for refs rant

The NBA will likely fine Fizdale for criticizing the referees, but the most important takeaway from his rant is something that he didn't say.

"It's unfortunate that I got a guy like Mike Conley, who in his whole career has zero technical fouls and just could not seem to get the proper respect from the officials that he deserves", Fizdale said.

Calling out the officiating and discrepancies in foul calls is a way to put that idea in the back of people's minds, most importantly officials in future games, but it's not just about earning a better balance of foul calls in the future.

In his postgame comments, Fizdale referenced Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard's 19 free throws (he made them all en route to a 37-point night) and the lack of free throws by Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph. San Antonio shot 32 free throws compared to Memphis' 15.

White Sox's Todd Frazier still sidelined with flu
NY went 8-1 over its first stretch in the Bronx this season, its most wins in a homestand since going 9-1 from July 17-26, 2009. To clear a roster spot, the White Sox optioned outfielder Willy Garcia to Triple-A Charlotte after Sunday's win over the Twins.

"I'm not a numbers guy, but that doesn't seem to add up", Fizdale said.

"Pop's got pedigree and I'm a young rookie, but they are not gonna rook us".

KKR-backed consortium makes $4.7 bln cash offer for Australia's Tatts
Tatts shareholders will control 58% of the enlarged entity, with Tabcorp's shareholders holding the remaining 42%. A buyout consortium has made a fresh attempt to gatecrash the betting group's takeover by rival Tabcorp.

Although the offer shows the business supports Fizdale, NBA rules prevent the business from covering the fine for Fizdale. "They made it hard on us during the regular season, and I expect them to play very well at home".

Fizdale's rant backfires, the Grizzlies barely get to the free throw line, and the Spurs rip the hearts out of all Grizzlies fans by stealing game three on the road.

Conley: "As far as getting to the free throw line, nah". "I'm close, but I'm not going to play the second game". You have to get your team going, and you do it whichever way is necessary, I guess.

It's unclear which outcome will come to fruition, but what we do know is that this will be the most competitive game of the series, and will test the characters of both teams. "Obviously there's a lot of emotions this time of year and he took it head on".

Gorsuch sworn in as Supreme Court justice
You may call Gorsuch whatever you like-interloper, cipher, beneficiary of a stolen seat-but his formal title is now "Justice". The result of these stratagems is a more politicized court and a new justice viewed by one party as illegitimate.

That kind of confidence in your players goes a long way in the locker room. They did a great job, and we stopped moving the ball. "But Kawhi is going to be aggressive and LaMarcus [Aldridge] is going to be aggressive, and if they double-team, they're going to have to choose between me or Danny [Green] or whoever is going to be open".
