For me it's just to find the clinical (streak), to finish our action". Claude Puel has turned his attention to the Hapoel Be'er Sheva game.

Jones' hook shot made it 51-21 at the 8:09 mark and the Pelicans had a 22-point lead at halftime.

"We don't catch rhythm", DeRozan said. We have to have a conscious effort of trying to win every quarter on both ends of the floor. "Things like that we have to limit".
It was somewhat of a nightmare scenario that could even threaten next year. Miller suffered a sprained foot at the end of the first half, and did not return. Sitton's right foot/ankle was in a walking boot after the game. You can't forfeit these last six games, but seriously, what else is going to go wrong?

The perceived wisdom is that the start of an innings is the easiest time to bat on sub-continent wickets, so England want to make the most of that run-making opportunity by playing the more aggressive Ben Duckett alongside captain Alastair Cook, leaving Gary Ballance in the middle order to offer ballast during a more hard time to score.
