Miami Heat’s historic low in Boston loss stuns NBA fans

Published

on

The NBA Playoffs are at the pointy end and both series are turning out to be unusual, this time it was the Miami Heat who broke all kinds of records for the wrong reason

The Boston Celtics levelled the series at 2-2, winning 102-82 at home.

Back in game three Miami scored 39 points in the first quarter, then in game four they scored 11 points.

This is a record, no team has ever scored so few points in the first quarter of a playoff game.

Victor Oladipo was the Heat’s best with 23 points to go with six assists and four rebounds.

Oladipo became the first bench player to outscore his own entire starting lineup (18) since these numbers began being tracked in 1970.

And not to overwhelm you with the stats, but here’s another.

The Heat missed their first 14 field goals attempts. It was the longest drought without a field goal to start any playoff game over the last 25 years.

In a nightmare situation for the English national football team, Raheem Sterling has returned home after intruder broke into his family residence

Football superstar Raheem Sterling has returned home on an emergency flight, after intruders broke into his family residence.

Police are investigating the burglary at Sterling’s home in a town called Leatherhead, just south of Central London.

Reports suggest a number of expensive items were stolen, including watches and other jewellery.

Sources close to Sterling say he is “shaken” and “concerned” about the wellbeing of his loved ones and wants to be home to “support his family.”

There have been nothing be best wishes and support from fellow team mates and staff. 

“For the moment the priority is clearly for him to be with his family…

We are going to support that and make sure he has as much time as he needs…

At the moment it’s a situation where he needs time with his family and I don’t want to put him under any pressure with that…

Sometimes football isn’t the most important thing and family should come first.

China has made an effort to hide the rest of the world from its citizens by editing out crowd scenes from World Cup coverage

A China coverup has come to light as the country attempts to censor its World Cup broadcast.

Protests against China’s strict zero-covid strategy are engulfing its major cities, as Chinese TV feeds are edited to steer clear of crowd scenes.

State television removed camera shots of maskless crowd goers and instead shows closeups of coaches and players.

This has its citizens questioning why the rest of the world is getting on with normality, while they remain under strict lockdown.

The World Cup comes at a turbulent time for China, as millions remain shut away from the rest of the world.

It also comes just weeks after Xi Jinping secured a third term, with many are now demanding an end to his rein.
