Atlanta Hawks takes on the Detroit Pistons on home ground at the Philips Arena in today NBA season’s opener.

It was a close game at the multi-purpose indoor arena, which was surprisingly won by the Pistons with an aggregate score of 106 to 94.

After being held to a draw at 25 points in the first quarter, the Pistons went on to win the game by securing two quarters by 23-18, 34-23 before conceding the final quarter by 24-28.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 21 points to lead all five Detroit starters in double figures and ruined the home opener for the team with the best record in the Eastern Conference last season.

Atlanta was looking to build on last season’s franchise-best record of 60-22 and run to the conference final.

Instead, the Hawks picked up where they left off in a sweep by the Cleveland Cavaliers, losing again in familiar fashion.

It was yet another clear blow to both Chelsea and Mourinho.

The Chelsea slump takes another turn for the worse as they fail to defend their league cup trophy.

Their defeat means that they have now lost eight out of their last six matches.

After Chelsea dominated a goalless first-half, Stoke led when Jon Walters was allowed to turn on the edge of the box before firing in off the crossbar.

Loic Remy drilled in an injury-time equaliser, seconds before Stoke’s Phil Bardsley was sent off for two bookings.

Stoke scored all of their spot-kicks, Eden Hazard missing the final penalty.

Potters keeper Jack Butland was the hero for the home side, saving the Belgian’s high effort to put Stoke into the quarter-finals.

Despite the Premier League champions’ dreadful start to the season, any suggestions of disharmony in the Blues ranks looked wide of the mark at Britannia Stadium.

The visitors showed no signs of their recent troubles in the first half, passing the ball around confidently and stretching the Stoke back line with their sharp movement.

England international Butland thwarted the visitors with a trio of top-class saves in the opening half-hour, twice denying Diego Costa and then Oscar, while Chelsea skipper John Terry’s cheeky flick from Willian’s cross was ruled out for offside.

And the character showed to level deep in stoppage-time suggested that the players were prepared to fight for Mourinho.

Nonetheless, it doesn’t get any better for Chelsea with Liverpool their opponents this weekend. Will the Blues bounce back?

Week 10 Review

The Good: A Comfortably Slumping Chelsea

Now that they lost yet again to West Ham, Chelsea almost seems comfortable that they are currently 15th in the premier league with 10 games gone. It was their fifth loss of the season and the champions won’t be having relief next week where they will face off against Liverpool. Additionally, the Blues will face an automatic FA fine after receiving seven yellow cards during the loss to the Hammers.

It just goes to show how much the team is almost in shambles too. Matic was sent off after being booked twice in nine minutes before the break, and Mourinho joined him after speaking to referee Jon Moss at half-time. The manager was seen at the stands among West Ham fans (see pic. Below) before disappearing entirely.

Australia advances into Rugby World Cup Final

Adam Ashley-Cooper scored a hat-trick for Australia.

Australia advanced into the Rugby World Cup Final and sets up a dream match against New Zealand.

It is the first time man-of-the-match Ashley-Cooper will have the chance to play in a World Cup final in his third attempt, and the winger was lapping up the moment after the full-time whistle, while paying tribute to Argentina’s never-say-die approach.

“We knew they’d play from everywhere on the field and they did that tonight,” he said.

That was exactly what Argentina did. Deemed “fiery” by some and “suicidal” by others, Los Pumas had made a series of costly mistakes early that would have cost them the game.

But they refused to yield and Nicolas Sanchez’s flawless boot – he kicked five penalties in all – saw them trail by seven points with 26 minutes to go.

Roared on by a passionate support that included football World Cup winner Diego Maradona, Argentina had chances in the second half as they took control up front and utilised their explosive runners.

But they lacked the composure to exploit several possible overlaps even after beginning to win scrum battles and the victories that come with it. As such, Ashley-Cooper took the opening and completed a hat-trick of tries late on to secure victory.

Now, with two World Cups victory under each of their respective belts, either Australia or New Zealand will look forward to being the first three-time Rugby World Cup Champions.
