“You’re getting me emotional because I can’t put it into words,” Fizdale said.Enes Kanter had a career-high 26 rebounds and scored 21 points, Tim Hardaway Jr. finished with 22 points.

(AP Photo/Brandon Dill)MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The entrance to the visitors’ locker room was covered with soaked towels, ice cubes scattered across the wet floor, remnants of the successful return to Memphis for New York Knicks coach David Fizdale.One year after Fizdale was fired by the Grizzlies, he returned with his Knicks on Sunday and left with a 103-98 victory. The win — New York’s third straight — led to a celebration, Fizdale’s team dousing him with water — and ice — as he entered the locker room after the game.ADVERTISEMENT Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

In fact, a poor-shooting first half left the Knicks trailing 52-43 at the break, and leading to a word of advice from Fizdale.“Coming into halftime, Fizz knew that we had that type of mindset coming into the game,” Hardaway said. “He told us at halftime just to calm down and don’t make it about him. That’s what we were playing for. We were playing for coach.”The third quarter showed a difference in the Knicks mindset. After Memphis built the lead to 13 early in the period, Kanter began asserting his strength inside and on the boards. Kanter muscled his way around the basket for 14 points on 6-of-9 shooting and grabbed 11 rebounds in the frame.New York outscored Memphis 35-19 in the third, including a 23-6 run.“I want my teammates to shoot it with confidence,” Kanter said of his rebounding. “Whenever you miss the shot, I’m going to get the rebound. So, shoot it with confidence.”ADVERTISEMENT Allen Durham still determined to help Meralco win 1st PBA title Japeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plum Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines? Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Despite the third-quarter rally, the two were still tied at 93l with 1:49 left. The Knicks scored the next six points, leading to the celebration for Fizdale.“I think it was a bunch of things we didn’t do,” said Memphis coach J.B. Bickerstaff, who became the interim Grizzlies coach after Fizdale’s firing and now has the permanent job. “That is the most disappointing thing is our guys have lived an identity. In that third quarter, we didn’t.”TIP-INSKnicks: Fizdale acknowledged everything was backward when he arrived at FedExForum for the game. “It was weird,” he said. “I pulled in and I’m like ‘OK, I’m not parking in my spot.’ Then he added that Grizzlies coach J.B. Bickerstaff was “in my damn spot.” … The win snapped a seven-game New York losing streak in Memphis. New York had not defeated the Grizzlies on Memphis’ home court since a 110-108 victory on March 9, 2011. .Kanter’s previous career-high rebounds was 24 against Chicago on Nov. 15.Grizzlies: Memphis struggled mightily with free throws early, making only 3 of its first 9 in the game. The Grizzlies would end the night 11 of 19 from the line. . Conley converted only 8 of 24 shots, including 2 of 10 from 3-point range. .The Grizzlies had a franchise-record 19 blocks, including Jackson’s seven, tying a franchise record in blocks by a rookie. The previous franchise record for blocks was 17 on Nov. 12, 2004 against Golden State.NO ANIMOSITY: NO REGRETSFizdale’s departure was long linked with him not getting along with Gasol, including benching the Grizzlies center in the fourth quarter of the last Memphis game before Fizdale was fired. The Knicks coach said the air was cleared in a summer conversation between the two. “I credit him with that. He made me a better coach and he made me a better person,” Fizdale said. “That’s not going to be a story any more for you guys.” Then Fizdale referenced Gasol working on a ship that rescued migrants that capsized off the coast of Libya. “This guy pulled a migrant out of the ocean this summer. That’s way more important than a basketball beef,” Fizdale said.Gasol and Fizdale hugged each near midcourt after the game. Of the situation, Gasol said after the game, “It was good. It was a competitive game. We asked about our families. All good.”UP NEXTKnicks: At Detroit on Tuesday night.

A FACEBOOK campaign to have All Star Kevin Cassidy re-instated to the county team has started on Facebook.So far around 100 people have Liked the page.A number of fans have left comments on the Bring Back Kevin Cassidy Facebook page. Sources close to Jim McGuinness and the management team however say that the defender will not be invited back to the panel. We understand that Cassidy gave a staunch defence of his right to make comments.Meanwhile friends of the Gaoth Dobhair man told donegaldaily.com that he had ‘no regrets’ about cooperating with the book which led to his dismissal from the county team.“He feels it has been blown out of all proportion and most people have not read the book in its entirety,” said a close friend.“Kevin is obviously gutted because as we saw this year, he’s still got great ability and would have loved to have been in the 2012 panel. “But he feels he did nothing wrong and was absolutely loyal to the team and the cause of Donegal.”Management sources however felt the content of the book was “way outside” what was expected of a senior player.The Facebook campaign is at:http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bring-BACK-Kevin-Cassidy/281401245233622© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights Reserved The copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailySell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.com CAMPAIGN STARTED TO ‘BRING BACK KEVIN CASSIDY’ TO COUNTY TEAM was last modified: November 9th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:expelled from squadfacebook campaigngaa all starKevin Cassidy

The Referendum Commission has today called on voters in Donegal to use their vote in the referendum taking place next Friday, 25th May.The Commission is the independent body set up to explain the proposal of the referendum. It also promotes voter turnout, and encourages those who are unsure about their decision to turn to its independent guide and its website, www.refcom2018.ie.

You do not need to have your polling card with you when you go to vote.However you should bring some valid form of personal identification such as a driving licence, a passport, public services card, an employee identity card with a photograph, a student identity card with a photograph, a travel document with your name and photograph, or a bank, savings or credit union book containing your address in the constituency. Polling stations will be open from 7am until 10pm on Friday 25th May. In the polling station you will be given a ballot paper. You vote by marking an ‘X’ in the ‘Yes’ box or ‘No’ box, depending on how you want to vote.
