Bledsoe Scores 30 Points, Bucks Hold Off Magic 118-108

first_imgORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Eric Bledsoe made it easy for the Milwaukee Bucks and superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo.Bledsoe scored 30 points, Antetokounmpo had 25 points and 13 rebounds and the Bucks won their fourth straight game, beating the Orlando Magic 118-108 on Saturday night.“It’s great to have a lot of options and be able to go in different directions,” Milwaukee coach Mike Budenholzer said. “Eric was just great. He made some 3s, got to the basket, did a lot defensively. He just did a little bit of everything.”Malcolm Brogdon added 18 points, and Khris Middleton had 15. The Bucks are 11-2 in their last 13 games.“Eric can go 12 of 14, score 30 points and still get everyone involved,” Antetokounmpo said. “He’s a pass- first point guard. We play faster and more together with him. He makes the game a lot easier for me, Malcolm, Khris (Middleton) and Brook (Lopez).”Nikola Vucevic led Orlando with 27 points, Terrence Ross had 16, D.J. Augustin 14 and Jarell Martin 12. The Magic struggled with Aaron Gordon sitting out with a back injury, dropping their third straight.“We can’t play defense like we’ve played these last four games,” Magic coach Steve Clifford said. “Against (Milwaukee’s) defense, the best defense in the NBA, we got 108 at home. You’ve got to give yourself a chance to win, but our defense is just not where it needs to be.”Vucevic and Ross helped the Magic trim a 16-point third-quarter deficit to five going into the final period. Vucevic had a 3-pointer and three-point play in an 11-2 run, and Ross scored the Magic’s last nine points of the quarter to make it 87-82.Martin’s 3-pointer on Orlando’s first possession of the fourth quarter made it 87-85, but that was as close as they would get.Bledsoe scored nine points to help the Bucks pull away.

Orlando cut it to 106-102 with four minutes to play, but the Bucks scored on seven of their next eight possessions.TIP-INSBucks: The Bucks had 31 fast-break points to just two for Orlando. … C Brook Lopez had four blocks in the first six minutes. … The Bucks arrived in Orlando early Thursday and had three days of rest waiting for the game.Magic: Martin made three straight 3-pointers in his first appearance in six games.

Report: Stoke City 2 Huddersfield 0

first_imgStoke City 2 Huddersfield Town 0: Lambert makes winning start as Potters inch out of bottom three Omnisport Last updated 1 year ago 00:52 1/21/18 Paul Lambert - cropped Getty Images Joe Allen and Mame Biram Diouf combined to give Paul Lambert three points in his first match in charge of Stoke City. Paul Lambert enjoyed the perfect start to life at Stoke City as a pair of second half goals secured a vital 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town at the bet365 Stadium.Managing in the top-flight for the first time in almost three years, Lambert had Joe Allen and Mame Biram Diouf to thank for at least momentarily lifting the Potters out of the bottom three.Allen brought the match to life after a forgettable first half by putting the hosts on course for a first win in five league matches with a cool 53rd minute opener.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player And Lambert, whose last Premier League stint ended in dismissal at Aston Villa, was truly able to celebrate when Diouf doubled the lead at the end of a clinical counter-attack.The striker started in place of reported Chelsea target Peter Crouch and repaid his new boss’ faith by sealing the end of a four-match losing run in all competitions.Huddersfield never threatened either side of the quickfire strikes as their winless run stretched to six league games, leaving them one point ahead of the rejuvenated Potters. It’s good to be back… #STKHUD @stokecity pic.twitter.com/QX6RySK1LP— Premier League (@premierleague) January 20, 2018Backed by a boisterous atmosphere, Stoke were full of energy early as Lambert urged his side to get on the front foot.Mame Biram Diouf replaced Crouch at the point of attack and had an attempt blocked well by Christopher Schindler in the 18th minute, with Charlie Adam blasting a half-volley wide on the follow-up.The match began to stagnate after a free-flowing first 20 minutes with a string of stray passes and lack of quality in attack.However, just as the first half appeared set to finish without a shot on target, Shaqiri was put through for a golden chance to break the deadlock.The Switzerland international raced onto Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting’s dinked pass over the top, but his attempted chip from just inside the area was smothered by the onrushing Jonas Lossl.To Lambert’s delight, Allen went one better within eight minutes of the restart.Choupo-Moting escaped down the left and his cut-back ran across the face of goal to Allen, who side-footed in off the right post despite Scott Malone appearing to be in a position to clear.YESSSSSSSS!!!!!! GET IN!!!!!! (1-0) #SCFC pic.twitter.com/J9F6MWPjii— Stoke City FC (@stokecity) January 20, 2018The Terriers had Lossl to thank for initially preventing a bigger margin as the German denied Shaqiri and Diouf in quick succession.Shaqiri failed to make the most of a promising breakaway once more as he cut inside and fired straight at the busy German goalkeeper, but the 26-year-old’s class eventually shone through for Stoke’s second.Choupo-Moting was gifted possession by Aaron Mooy’s loose pass and his ball into Shaqiri’s feet was delightfully flicked on to Diouf, who buried his finish to extend the hosts’ margin with just over 20 minutes remaining.Stoke had a chance to further extend their winning margin only for Choupo-Moting blazed over, but the Terriers’ blunt attack meant Lambert’s men were never in danger of missing out on a much-needed three points. Key Opta stats:- Diouf’s goal was his 22nd in the Premier League for Stoke – making him their joint-third highest goalscorer in the competition (Jonathan Walters 43, Peter Crouch 43, Marko Arnautovic 22).- Lambert earned his first win as a Premier League manager in 11 games, since his Aston Villa side beat Leicester City 2-1 in December 2014.- The Potters kept their first clean sheet in the Premier League since October (1-0 at Watford), having conceded 30 goals in their 13 previous games. read morelast_img read more
