Diego Maradona hopeful of future Napoli role

  NAPLES, Italy (AP) — Former Napoli star Diego Maradona is in talks to work with the Serie A side, where he is still idolized nearly 27 years after leaving the club. Maradona, who is in Naples for a theatrical event on Monday celebrating the club's first title win, met with Napoli President Aurelio de Laurentiis on Saturday night. 'It was the first step,' Maradona said Sunday. 'First of all I have to sort out the problems I have here in Italy, then I can work for Napoli in Italy and in the world. 'We have to do things well because I want a winning team, a team that can play on level terms against Juve, Inter, Milan and Roma. He understood immediately because in these years he has grown from a president who didn't know much about football to become an expert today.' An Italian court is scheduled to finally end the decades-long battle between Maradona and the Italian government on Feb. 28. Maradona has always insisted he does not owe any of the millions in back taxes the government claims are due. The 56-year-old Argentine arrived in the city on Saturday night and was greeted by more than 100 cheering Napoli fans, who had waited in freezing temperatures outside his hotel for a glimpse of their idol. 'It continues to surprise me,' Maradona said. 'There are kids who have never seen me play and today they get excited and cry for a photo with me. 'Every day I feel the affection and love the Neapolitan people have for me. The father has transmitted it to his son, who has then transmitted it to his and this will never end. After 30 years the same love continues, like the first woman you have in your life.' Maradona led Napoli to its only two league titles in 1987 and 1990 and scored a club record 115 goals between 1984 and 1991. 'After a match against Cremona at the beginning of the season which didn't count for anything but which drew 80,000 people, I understood that here at Napoli we needed to play for the title,' Maradona said. 'I came from Barcelona, where we could win, draw or lose, but here at Napoli no, I couldn't lose, I told myself then. 'I would have been ashamed to have 80,000 people and then not to win. And we won everywhere, at Juve, at Inter, at Roma... And if now Napoli can think it can win the title, it is thanks to me.' .....»»

Leonard scores 43 in 3 quarters as Clippers rout Cavaliers

By Joe Reedy, Associated Press LOS ANGELES (AP) — Kawhi Leonard scored a season-high 43 points in three quarters as the Los Angeles Clippers routed the Cleveland Cavaliers 128-103 on Tuesday night (Wednesday, PHL time). According to Sportradar, it was only the second time since 1996 a Clippers player scored at least 40 points in the first three quarters. Lou Williams had 40 against Golden State in a 2018 game. Leonard had 14 points in the second quarter and set a career high for 3s in one period with four as the Clippers broke open the game. The All-Star forward played 29 minutes and was 14 of 22 from the floor and 6 of 10 from beyond the arc. He was two points from tying his regular-season career high. Williams added 24 points for the Clippers, who played again without injured star Paul George. They have won five of six and had six scorers in double figures. Collin Sexton led Cleveland with 25 points and Cedi Osman added 21. Rookie guard Darius Garland, the fifth overall pick in last June's draft, had 14 points and a career-high 10 assists for his first double-double. Osman's 3-pointer gave the Cavs a 34-33 lead with 9:58 remaining in the second quarter before Los Angeles outscored them 33-16 the remainder of the half. The Clippers scored the final 13 points of the first half, including nine from Leonard. He closed the half by intercepting Osman's pass and going down the floor for a dunk while drawing a foul from Garland. Leonard's free throw completed the three-point play to put Los Angels up 66-50 at halftime. The Clippers' largest lead was 36 early in the fourth. THROWBACK NIGHT In a matchup of two franchises celebrating their 50th year, the Clippers wore their Buffalo Braves uniforms. The franchise started in Buffalo before moving to San Diego in 1978 and changing their name to the Clippers. They relocated to Los Angeles in 1984. The Cavaliers donned the uniforms they wore from 1994-2002, which was fitting since it was 1990s Night at Staples Center. ANOTHER LA REUNION Cleveland forward Tristan Thompson gave former coach Tyronn Lue a bearhug on the Clippers sideline before the game. Lue is in his first season as an assistant on Doc Rivers' Clippers staff after he was fired by the Cavaliers six games into last season. The Cavaliers faced LeBron James on Monday night (Tuesday, PHL time) for the third time since he signed with the Los Angeles Lakers during the 2018 offseason. TIP-INS Cavaliers: Kevin Love got the night off with Cleveland playing back-to-back games. Love has played a back-to-back set only once this season. ... Larry Nance Jr. returned to the lineup after missing the past seven games due to left knee soreness. He was scoreless in 19 minutes with three rebounds and four assists. Clippers: George missed his third straight game due to a strained left hamstring. Rivers did not have an update before the game on when the All-Star forward might be back. ... Maurice Harkless had 11 rebounds. UP NEXT Cavaliers: At the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday (Saturday, PHL time). Cleveland won the first meeting 114-107 on Dec. 20 (Dec. 21, PHL time). Clippers: Host the Orlando Magic on Thursday (Friday, PHL time). Los Angeles has won the last 11 in the series......»»

ABL: Wolf Warriors open new year by extinguishing Alab Pilipinas

San Miguel Alab Pilipinas did not have the same sort of fire they had last year and opened the new year with a sorry loss, 93-98, at the hands of Macau, Sunday at Filoil Flying V Centre. Misfiring all game long and making errors down the stretch, the Filipinos saw their four-game winning streak come to a close and their standing drop to 4-2. Nick King was the lone Philippine player who was effective and efficient as he topped the scoring column with 33 points on top of 12 rebounds and four assists. Khalif Wyatt and Jason Brickman both struggled, however, with the former finishing with 15 points in 3-of-12 shooting and the latter ending with seven markers in 3-of-8 shooting. Maltese Sam Deguara didn't get going as well and wound up with just seven points all while having to play through foul trouble. Still, they went all-out and even willed their way to a 91-90 lead inside the last three minutes. It was at that point, however, that their shot went missing in action as the visitors rang off eight unanswered points for a 98-91 edge with 57.4 ticks to go on the clock. King made good on an inside basket for Alab not long after, but by then, it was too late and the Wolf Warriors were celebrating an upset win. The Macau team counted six players in double-digits led by Douglas Herring and Julian Boyd who had 21 points apiece. The Filipinos have no time to waste to get back on track as up next for them are the Fubon Braves on Tuesday still at the same venue. BOX SCORES MACAU WOLF WARRIORS 98 -- Herring 21, Biyd 21, Cai 15, Ewing 13, Hu 11, Thomas 10, Tang 7, Shentu 0. SAN MIGUEL ALAB PILIPINAS 93 -- King 33, Wyatt 15, Domingo 11, Gray 10, Ganuelas-Rosser 9, Brickman 7, Deguara 4, Vigil 4, Heading 0.
