Sports News: Wizards Top Rockets, Browns and Manziel
Sports News NBA: Wizards Top Rockets
Sometimes its all about having a gathering of stars, yet other times its about moments and how these players are able to make a difference in the most unexpected moment.
The Washington Wizards were able to prove that solid wins can be achieved even against the strongest rivals in the league if played right. The Wizards topped the Houston Rockets with a 104-103 away win at the Toyota Center, in Houston.
Just when it appeared that the Rockets were off to their 22nd win of the season, the Wizards pulled a team effort and held a strong Texas offense.
This time Bradley Beal stepped up and confidently took hold of the lead role of the squad. Nothing more to say, but that Beal owned the role. The player was able to finish with a season high 33-points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists.
Beal stated that although he did have a good night, the team really made a solid effort to walk away with a victory.
However, Beal was not the only man who held a top performance. Veteran Paul Pierce once again assumed a starring role and finished the game with 21 points and 3 rebounds, with star John Wall following right behind him, 13 points, 12 assists, and 4 rebounds.
For the Wizards, this win meant their 22nd stand of the season. For the Rockets, this loss the 9th of the season and two steps away from their East coast counterparts.
Just as Beal, James Harden also finished the game with 33 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. Harden stated that the team is still performing quite well and that one loss is not something to be taken with extreme harshness.
Harden finished by saying that Houston played a good game, but that they simply allowed for one last point that made the difference.
Sports News NFL: Browns Haslam Did Not Push For Manziel
For the Cleveland Browns, the 2014-15 NFL regular season ended up being just a step up from the prior campaigns that had brought upon the organization a sharp lack of success.
Perhaps it was just a mild step up, given the large contrast in performance, due to the fact that more disappointment was perceived, rather than anything else.
Expectations flew up high, especially when the Browns called bids for Johnny Manziel as the top pick of last NFL draft.
With all the controversy regarding Manziel’s lack of performances and lack of minutes on the field, it was up to one of the Browns organization leaders to speak up and defend one of his dearest workmates.
He did, Browns general manager Ray Farmer took a solid stand and stated that team owner Jimmy Haslam had no influence over the decision that brought Manziel to the team.
According to Farmer, many want to point out to Haslam as the main guilty one to have pushed for the integration of Manziel in the squad.
Yet Farmer stated that he did not even try nor influence the decision that allowed the team to pull in a player like Manziel.
Farmer also added that having a player like Manziel in the squad is not something to that needs to be considered as serious. Farmer wrapped up by saying that Manziel will be a solid star in the future and that it is just a matter of time.
