ve a mixed reception from the Blues fans Antworten

NEW ORLEANS -- Its Holiday season in New Orleans all right. One of the Pelicans primary players is back and already helping them win.Jrue Holiday scored 21 points in his first action this season, Anthony Davis had his latest stellar outing with 38 points, nine rebounds and four blocks, and the Pelicans beat the Portland Trail Blazers 113-101 on Friday night.I head a great first game, Holiday said. The thrill was there. It felt good, being a part of a team.Holiday made his season debut after missing the first 12 games to care for his wife, retired soccer star Lauren Holiday, who had brain surgery last month only weeks after giving birth to the couples first child, a daughter.He wound up playing just more than 23 minutes hitting an array of jumpers, including a 3, as well as driving floaters and layups. He finished with seven assists, none more crowd-pleasing than his crisp bounce-pass to a cutting Davis, who finished the play with a thunderous two-handed dunk.Holiday had been in constant contact with coaches and studying game video while on leave, so he wasnt surprised that he quickly got into the rhythm of the offense.There are some new faces around here, but at the same time its the same system, Holiday said. The part that I was really worried about was conditioning. I really thought that I was behind. Maybe I was just excited for this game. I felt like I could play forever.Terrence Jones added 15 points, and Tim Frazier had 12 for the Pelicans. New Orleans built the lead up to 20 in the fourth quarter and cruised to the finished. Theyve won three of five after an 0-8 start.Damian Lillard scored 27 points, and CJ McCollum 24 for Portland, which has lost three straight to fall to 7-7. Mason Plumlee added 13 points and 12 rebounds for the Trail Blazers, who never got closer than eight points in the second half.We obviously are not playing the best basketball right now, but we are still .500, said Portland forward Ed Davis, who had 11 rebounds in a starting role that required him to attempt to defend his Pelicans namesake. Its not like we are on an eight-game losing streak.We are not in panic mode, he added. Well be all right, man.TIP-INSTrail Blazers: Maurice Harkless scored 10 points, but went 2 of 7 from 3-point range, from where the Blazers went 12 of 34 as a team. ... Portland has scored 100 or more points in 12 of its first 14 games. ... The Blazers, which lost 126-109 in Houston on Thursday night, dropped to 3-4 on the road.Pelicans: Alvin Gentry reached his 800th career game as an NBA head coach. ... New Orleans won its second straight home game after starting 0-5 on its own floor. ... Center Alexis Ajinca sat out with a sore left shoulder.HOLIDAY CHEERThe crowd bellowed, Jruuuuue! as Holiday checked in, and he wasted no time getting involved, assisting on Jones layup the first time he handled the ball on the offensive end.Within four minutes on the court, Holiday scored five points to go with a rebound and assists, and even a block on Noah Vonlehs dunk attempt.Anthony Davis called Holiday instant offense.He comes in, makes great reads, makes plays for himself or others -- and also does it on the defensive end, Davis said. In my eyes, hes one of the top point guards in the league and it showed.DOMINANT DAVISDavis was making shots from all over the court, hitting a pair of 3s to go with usual leaners, floaters, layups and mid-range jumpers.The Pelicans made their first significant push in the final three minutes of the first half. Portland was down 51-47 after Plumlees 16-foot jumper, but Davis responded with a 16-footer of his own that sparked a 13-4 run to close out the half. Davis added six more points during the spurt, hitting a jumper, floater and spinning a reverse layup off the glass with McCollum climbing on his shoulders. Davis also rejected his third Lillard shot of the half, and New Orleans led 64-51 as the horn sounded to end the second quarter.NEW LOOKHoliday wore goggles as a precaution after missing the last nine games of last season because of an inadvertent elbow he took to the head, fracturing his orbital eye wall.He said he hasnt decided yet how long hell wear them.We won so Im probably going to play in them Saturday night, he said. I think I look dorky. Ive already been made fun of by half of the team. Thats OK as long as we get the win.UP NEXTTrail Blazers: Visit Brooklyn on Sunday.Pelicans: Host Charlotte on Saturday night. DOnta Foreman Jersey . Lack made 20 saves for his third shutout of the season as the Canucks blanked the St. Louis Blues 1-0 in the first post-Olympic game for both teams night. Jeff Allen Jersey . Any real chance at payback wont come until the playoff. Still, Pittsburgh knows its taut 3-2 win over the Bruins on Wednesday night is a pretty good place to start laying the groundwork. "They are a very good defensive team," Penguins forward Brandon Sutter said. . Anthony Calvillo, through 20 CFL seasons, was frequently invincible and largely stoic in the heat of competition. But underneath the professional exterior he was, and is, compellingly human. Jermaine Kelly Jersey . Shot outdoors against the stunning backdrop of Banff, Alta., the networks 30-minute original production airs tonight at 8pm et/5pm pt on TSN2. The four All-Star teams will play for $100,000 in prize money during TSNs annual skins game, airing live this weekend on TSN from The Fenlands Banff Recreation Centre. Kareem Jackson Jersey . -- Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson asked his players a simple question during Fridays morning shootaround: How many of them had ever been on a team 14 games over .Steve Bruce has described the opportunity he has been given at Aston Villa as the one he has been waiting for throughout his two-decade managerial career. Bruces first job was at Sheffield United in 1998, and he has since gone on to manage at Huddersfield, Wigan (twice), Crystal Palace, Birmingham, Sunderland and Hull. The former defender believes, however, that his challenge at Villa Park is his biggest so far - especially in terms of helping restore the club to its former glory.Its got great history, tradition, all the facilities are there and its one of the great clubs in our country, not just in the Midlands, Bruce told Sky Sports. Ive been given a huge chance and Ive waited 20 years for a challenge like this. Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce says he hopes the scenes of last night are not replicated when his side go to Birmingham for the Birmingham derby The mentality here has been getting beaten too often for too long. We were in the bottom three when I took charge of my first game, wed won four games out of 50 and hadnt won away [since the start of last season], so it becomes a bit of a habit to get beaten and it becomes acceptable. We have to try and change that and try and turn this big juggernaut of a club around. If you take a following of 5,000 to Reading on Tuesday night it shows you the size and magnitude of the club, because theres not many who can do that. It was a good win for everybody concerned, but I keep stressing lets hope its just the start because we need to carry on and see if we can go on a run. Jonathan Kodjia of Aston Villa is congratulated by team-mate Gary Gardner after scoring against Reading While Bruce hopes he will be given the chance to turn Aston Villa around in the long-term, he understands that the nature of modern-day management, especially in the Championship, is that you are often not giving the time to do so.Next up is the Second City derby live on Sky Sports on Sunday, where hell be hoping to build on a start which has seen Villa accrue seven points in three games.I think what were seeing in management now is you need to win pretty early or you know what happens, he said. But the hardest part at a club is after youve been relegated. Theres been big changes here all the way through the club and in the team as well, with 10 or 11 players going in and out and they didnt get off the start theyd have hoped to. Steve Bruce the new manager of Aston Villa poses for a picture at the clubs training ground at Bodymoor Heath So then the doom and gloom doesnt lift and I think turning that around is the biggest challenge, and only a few results can do that.ddddddddddddBruce has been promoted from the Championship on four occasions during his managerial career, including through the play-offs last season with Hull. And despite their poor start under Roberto Di Matteo, Bruce still harbours hopes of a similar push this year.We have to have the belief that we can get there, said Bruce. It might have to be the play-off route, but if we have to go down that route we will. Well try and get in and around it and give ourselves a chance.Weve seen over the last few years that the fitness levels of the Championship are now on a par with the Premier League and you have to be able to go Saturday to Tuesday for a long time. Its a marathon. You need effort, endeavour and the squad of players have to be genuine, because thats what the Championship demands. If we can do all of those things and have that little bit of edge at the top of the pitch then you have a chance. Birmingham City manager Gary Rowett says the derby with Aston Villa on Sunday is a massive game It has recently emerged that Bruce wrote a series of detective novels at the turn of the century, but the Villa boss disappointingly revealed that he wouldnt be putting pen to paper again any time soon.It was a long, long time ago and therell be no more! he joked. Go and read them and youll understand why.Bruce now takes Villa to face his former side Birmingham on Sunday, and he expects to receive a mixed reception from the Blues fans now he manages their bitter rivals. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just £6.99. No contract. I think [the relationship with Birmingham fans] will be a bit different now because Ive gone and managed their arch rivals! he said. But I hope I can do for Villa what I did for them because we had some good times.Its a huge big city derby that hasnt happened [in the league] for five years. Im always up for a bit of banter, as long as it stays that way, and lets hope its a really good spectacle. Also See: Villa video Villa fixtures Villa stats Get a £10 free bet!
