Fox sparks 2nd-half rally, Kings beat Bulls 108-89

By John Jackson, Associated Press CHICAGO (AP) — De'Aaron Fox scored 23 of his 25 points in the second half, and the Sacramento Kings rallied to beat the Chicago Bulls 108-89 on Monday night (Tuesday, PHL time). Fox went 8-for-11 from the field after missing each of his first five shots in the first half. Bogdan Bogdanovic and Marvin Bagley III added 16 points apiece as Sacramento closed out a 3-1 road trip. Chicago led by as many as 14 in its ninth loss in 10 games. The Bulls were coming off a franchise-record 133-77 loss to the Boston Celtics on Saturday (Sunday, PHL time). Zach LaVine led Chicago with 19 points, and Lauri Markkanen had 13. After falling behind 17-0 on Saturday (Sunday, PHL time), the Bulls got off to a better start in this one. They led 33-26 at the end of the first quarter and 56-45 at halftime. Chicago had a 66-57 lead in the third before Sacramento closed the quarter with a 24-8 run. The speedy Fox sparked the offense with 15 points during the key stretch, but the Kings also picked up the pressure on defense. The Bulls shot 22-for-41 (53.7 percent) from the field in the first half, but were just 6-for-16 (37.5 percent) in the third. Sacramento kept up the intensity in the fourth and Chicago never made a serious push. TIP-INS Kings: Buddy Hield and Iman Shumpert each scored 14 points. Willie Cauley-Stein had 11 points and 16 rebounds. ... Sacramento improved to 14-12. It's the latest point in a season it has been above .500 since the 2005-06 season. The Kings finished 44-38 that year in their most recent playoff appearance. Bulls: G Kris Dunn (sprained left knee) and F Bobby Portis (sprained right knee) returned to the lineup after sitting out nearly seven weeks. Dunn finished with nine points in 20 minutes, and Portis had nine points in 19 minutes. ... G Justin Holiday went 1-for-6 on three-pointers. He has made at least one triple in 39 consecutive games dating to last season. He's the only NBA player with at least one three-pointer in every game this season. TIPPING POINT Less than a week into his tenure, Bulls coach Jim Boylen faced a crisis over the weekend. Following the loss to the Celtics, Boylen planned to practice on Sunday (Monday, PHL time) even though the Bulls had played back-to-back games. Some players reportedly discussed not showing up. Instead of a practice session, a lengthy team meeting was held. Before Monday's (Tuesday, PHL time) game, Boylen said everything was fine and he would continue to push hard. "I expected something like yesterday to happen," he said. "I've been waiting on it, I was prepared for it, I took it head on." UP NEXT Kings: Host the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night (Thursday, PHL time). Bulls: Play the Orlando Magic in Mexico City on Thursday night (Friday, PHL time) to begin a three-game trip......»»

Barnes, Brunson lead Mavericks past Magic 101-76

By Dave Jackson, Associated Press DALLAS (AP) — Harrison Barnes scored 19 points, rookie Jalen Brunson added 17 and the Dallas Mavericks beat the Orlando Magic 101-76 on Monday night (Tuesday, PHL time). Brunson got the start at point guard in place of injured Dennis Smith Jr. (right wrist sprain) and reached a career high in points. He has scored in double figures in each of the Mavs' last three games. Luka Doncic had 11 rebounds and a season-high nine assists to offset a 2-for-11 shooting performance, finishing with seven points. Dwight Powell had 16 for the Mavericks. Dallas never trailed in winning its 10th straight at home for the first time since the 2007-08 season. The Mavericks led by as many as 28 in the fourth quarter. Jonathon Simmons had a season-high 18 for the Magic and Aaron Gordon scored 10. Orlando played without Evan Fournier, who missed the game for personal reasons. Orlando's Nikola Vucevic played 26 minutes despite turning his ankle during a loss Friday (Saturday, PHL time) against Indiana. He scored just eight but had 16 rebounds. Brunson was 5-for-5 from the field in the first half and scored 11 points, as did Barnes, who had the Mavericks' final eight to give Dallas a 52-40 lead at halftime. Brunson then gave Dallas a 61-44 lead with a triple from the right corner with 9:05 left in the third quarter. They extended the lead to 22 by the end of the period. TIP-INS Magic: Coach Steve Clifford did not detail the reasons for Fournier's absence, but said, "It's totally excused." Jonathan Isaac started in Fournier's spot. Clifford didn't know whether Fournier would miss more games. . Rookie Mo Bamba, who had played in all 26 previous games, was a DNP-Coach's Decision on Monday (Tuesday, PHL time). Mavericks: Coach Rick Carlisle on the decision to start Brunson in place of the injured Smith in the last two games: "He earned that opportunity based on his play through the first two months along with how he played in the New Orleans game (a 132-106 loss). He played a very solid game even though it was a blowout." IT'S BEEN A WHILE For perspective on how long it has been since Dallas won 10 games in a row at home, consider that the 2007-08 season was the last one the Mavericks were coached by someone other than Carlisle, who took over for Avery Johnson after that season. The Mavericks' final loss of that regular season came against the Seattle SuperSonics, led by then-rookie Kevin Durant. The SuperSonics moved to Oklahoma City after that season. UP NEXT Magic: Travel to Mexico City to play Chicago on Thursday (Friday, PHL time) and Utah on Saturday (Sunday, PHL time). Both are Magic home games. Mavericks: Host Atlanta on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time)......»»

When Felix Gallardo meets Pablo Escobar

SINGAPORE---We couldn't take our eyes off the screen when we began binge-watching "Narcos: Mexico," the latest season of the popular TV franchise on Netflix.       But, one of the show's biggest highlights doesn't take place in Guadalajara or in any of the three places---Sinaloa, Chihuahua, Durango---that constitute the so-called Mexican Golden Triangle.       After cleverly consolidating---and manipulating---the most powerful cartels in his country, enterprising drug lord Miguel Angel Felix Gallardo, played by the transfixing Diego Luna, finds himself taking a "business trip" to Colombia and Nicaragua.     &nbs...Keep on reading: When Felix Gallardo meets Pablo Escobar.....»»

‘Narcos: Mexico’ runs to second season

Netflix's "Narcos: Mexico" has generated enough return for the streaming network to declare that a second season is in the pipeline. Less than a month after its debut, Spanish- and English-language crime drama "Narcos: Mexico" is set for a second season, Netflix has announced. At one point conceived of as the fourth season of drug trade crime drama "Narcos", and in many ways still occupying that function, "Narcos: Mexico" turns from Colombian trafficking to the gestation of the Mexican cartel empire in the 1980s. Specifically, it focuses on the rise of the Guadalajara and, with a small amount of cast crossover, introduces Diego Luna ("Rogue One", "If Beale Street Could Talk"...Keep on reading: ‘Narcos: Mexico’ runs to second season.....»»

IMMIGRATION: A Cain-and-Abel Saga, II

NEW YORK---As the saying goes, "We are here because you were there." That the caravan of Central Americans is now at the southern border, in and around Tijuana, Mexico, is an indication that the chickens have come home to roost. Given the long history of United States interference---sometimes openly invading, often not---in the affairs of Central American governments, there is poetic justice in their citizens now seeking asylum in the U.S. and fleeing the violence and economic instability, caused in large part by those very same U.S. interventions. In 1904, President Theodore Roosevelt laid out policies that essentially treated Latin America as its "backyard," with the U.S. as ...Keep on reading: IMMIGRATION: A Cain-and-Abel Saga, II.....»»
