first_img• Photo Gallery: Lakers vs. Trail Blazers LOS ANGELES – Even with the NBA trade deadline today, the light at the end of the tunnel keeps looking farther away for the Lakers, who now are the first Phil Jackson-coached team in history to lose six consecutive games. The Blazers scored 18 more points than their season average and shot 59.7 percent from the field. The only team to shoot better against the Lakers this season was the Dallas Mavericks in a December loss. All that was left was for the Lakers to work the phones and try to convince the New Jersey Nets they were better off without the remaining $41 million on Jason Kidd’s contract than they were with the All-Star guard. But Jackson portrayed things in less than favorable terms before the game by saying he didn’t think the “momentum” was there to make a deal after spending the afternoon huddled with general manager Mitch Kupchak. Bryant finished with 25 points, eight rebounds and six assists, but the most telling stat came with the Lakers being out-scored 25-11 with the superstar guard on the bench. Jarrett Jack led Portland with 30 points while Zach Randolph added 16. As indication of how desperate the Lakers were to win, Jackson opted to bring Bryant back at the start of the fourth quarter when he normally rested him. It appeared Bryant would play to the final horn, but Jackson sat him with 8:03 left. The results were disastrous as Portland out-scored the Lakers 10-2 to take a 98-89 lead. Jackson called one timeout with 7:37 remaining after Dan Dickau stripped Andrew Bynum in the post and the Blazers scored at the other end. LaMarcus Aldridge and Randolph sank jumpers for Portland. The Lakers then watched as Sasha Vujacic fell down on a drive and Lamar Odom couldn’t connect on a 3-pointer, which led to an Aldridge basket. Vujacic missed a 3-pointer and the Lakers couldn’t grab the rebound after Dickau missed a 3-pointer. It went to Randolph, who floated in a shot to put the Blazers ahead 98-89. Jackson called timeout again and brought back Bryant. The Blazers went ahead by 11 and finished off the 16-2 run on a Brandon Roy jumper. But the Lakers stormed back with Bryant on the floor and scored seven unanswered points to close to 100-96 on Bryant’s three-point play with 2:50 left. They got no closer as Jack and Randolph each got to the line for two free throws while Bryant missed a 3-pointer and a drive in the lane. Bryant scored nine points in a row for the Lakers after returning but it wasn’t enough. (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

What was a one-point game when Bryant went to the bench turned into an 11-point Portland lead in a matter of 31/2 minutes. The Lakers were booed off the court at Staples Center, where they lost their fifth home game in a row as well. last_img read more

We see that there is many British Columbians who believe that the Northern Gateway will create jobs, 71 per cent across the sea but it jumps to 78 per cent among northern BC residents.

A new Insights West poll taken near the end of last month has found a slim majority of British Columbians are still opposed to the Northern Gateway Pipeline project.Taken from July 23rd to the 25th, the online survey involved 823 adult residents and province wide 52 per cent were opposed to the project, while 41 per cent supported it.The proposed twin pipeline would see a westbound line carry diluted bitumen from Alberta’s Athabasca oil sands to a west coast marine terminal at Kitimat for tanker export to markets in Asia.- Advertisement -It would also feature an eastbound line of similar length, just over 730 miles, which would carry imported natural gas condensate from Kitimat back to Bruderheim, Alberta, just northeast of Edmonton.The poll found that opposition to the Calgary based Enbridge Pipeline is strongest among young people under 35 and women, at 61 and 60 per cent respectively.Geographically, and not surprisingly, it was strongest on Vancouver Island and Metro Vancouver at 57 and 53 per cent respectively.Advertisementlast_img read more

She said she likes to ‘flip back and forth between subjects.’“One feeds the other, and you can’t keep painting the same thing forever.”Four of her oil paintings in the exhibition have already sold, according to Peace Gallery North.

We were also collecting stuff that floated up on the beach as a family,” she said in an interview.- Advertisement -“I decided to turn this fascination with things that float up — flotsam of life, really. The leftover stuff that are of no use to the personal who originally had it, but it ends up in your hands in one way or another — and make paintings from it.”Photo by Montana CummingPhoto by Montana CummingOriginally from Vancouver, Stanford took up both painting and photography in art school, and focused on photography for a while, as painting was on the back burning.

first_img1 Jurgen Klopp and Christian Benteke Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has backed striker Christian Benteke to end his current slump but admits there is “no hiding place” for the £32.5million signing.The 25-year-old has not scored for 11 matches, a run stretching back to Boxing Day, and has just seven goals for the whole season.He is still Liverpool’s top scorer, which speaks volumes about the Reds’ general form in front of goal, but with Daniel Sturridge making his long-awaited return from injury in Tuesday’s FA Cup exit at West Ham Benteke’s situation will come under even more scrutiny.Klopp has spoken to the Belgium international about his struggles but admits only the player can really help himself.“I can do a lot of things but at the end – and it is not only with Christian – the last important help comes from the player himself,” said the Reds boss.“It is not the easiest period of his career but the number of opportunities (he is getting) is a good sign, if he had no opportunities it would be a much bigger problem but it is not too easy.“You cannot hide yourself. I talked to him a few times and gave him some advice as a human being and a coach and he has really tried to come back to an easy moment.“Strikers who do not score goals for a longer period are more interesting than someone else who does not score enough.“But there are worse situations in the world – even in the world of football – so we have to carry on and he has to carry on.”Liverpool head to Benteke’s former club Aston Villa on Sunday but Klopp cautioned against that trip sparking the big centre-forward into goalscoring action again.“I have not the best experience with players coming back to former clubs, it is usually they make more pressure for themselves because they want to show extra,” the German said.“I don’t know the history with Christian and Aston Villa so I don’t know whether they will welcome him with open arms or whistles but that is not too interesting for me.“I don’t hope too often before a game ‘Come on, maybe this is the game when it will change’. It is about work and circumstances and we will see what line-up we will choose but it is not because of personal histories with this club.”last_img read more
