The Charlotte Hornets travel to the Smoothie King Center to battle the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday night.

The Charlotte Hornets have been in a rut as they’ve lost nine of their last 15 games and they will be hoping to snap a three-game skid after falling short against the Jazz in a 111-102 road loss on Monday. Kemba Walker led the team with 47 points on 15 of 28 shooting from the field, Jeremy Lamb added 23 points on nine of 16 shooting off the bench while Willie Hernangomez chipped in with 15 points and eight rebounds. As a team, the Hornets shot just 40 percent from the field and seven of 30 from the 3-point line, but not even 22 points from Walker in the fourth quarter was enough to challenge the Jazz who led by 13 points at halftime. With the tough loss, Charlotte fell to 35-42 on the season and 11-27 on the road.

Meanwhile, the New Orleans Pelicans have been struggling for a while now as they’ve lost 10 of their last 12 games and they will be hoping to avoid another blowout after getting routed by the Lakers in a 130-102 home loss on Sunday. Julius Randle led the team with 17 points on five of eight shooting, Jahlil Okafor and Christian Wood each scored 15 points while Solomon Hill chipped in with 14 points off the bench. As a team, the Pelicans shot 45 percent from the field and eight of 31 from the 3-point line as they took it to the Lakers to lead by one point at halftime, before getting blown off the floor in the third quarter by 44-22. With the loss, New Orleans fell to 32-46 overall and 19-20 at home.

Looking at the betting trends, the Hornets are 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 against the Western Conference and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games overall. The Pelicans are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games against a team with a losing record, 1-8 ATS in their last nine home games and 2-10 ATS in their last 12 games overall.

Head to head, the road team is 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings, the Hornets are 8-20-1 ATS in the last 29 meetings overall and the Hornets are 3-11 ATS in the last 14 meetings in New Orleans.

The Pelicans are in a serious slump which isn’t surprising given the long list of injuries they’ve had to deal with, but so are the Hornets who have lost their last three games by an average of 23.3 points. The Hornets are just 3-11 ATS in the last 14 meetings in New Orleans, but they are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games overall and will be relieved to be playing lesser competition like the Pelicans are falling to the playoff-bound Warriors and Jazz in their last two outings. I’m sticking with Walker and the Hornets to get a feel-good win against the injury-depleted Pelicans here.

Wizards vs Bulls Live : The start of a new era in Washington. Ernie Grunfeld is out, which 2019 means everyone in the organization from the coaching staff to the last player on the bench is going to be reevaluated with a fresh set of eyes this summer. Now, everyone has four games left this season to make a final impression for whoever takes over the reins on why they should stick around in Washington.

The back-to-back NBA Champion Golden State Warriors today announced that single game tickets for the First Round of the 2019 NBA Playoffs, presented by Kaiser Permanente, will go on sale this week with exclusive presale events before becoming available to the general public on Thursday, April 4 at 2:00 p.m. The Warriors captured the 2018 NBA Championship, marking the team’s sixth NBA title (2018, 2017, 2015, 1975, 1956, 1947), and have made four consecutive appearances in the NBA Finals. The NBA Playoffs will begin on either April 13 or April 14 with the 2019 NBA Playoffs schedule, including opponent, dates and times, announced at a later date.

The first presale event begins on Wednesday, April 3, at 2:00 p.m., exclusively for the team’s season ticket holders. Beginning at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 3, two additional presale events will begin for members of the Warriors’ Season Ticket Priority Wait List and for Santa Cruz Warriors season ticket holders.

On Thursday, April 4, at 10:00 a.m., Warriors Insiders members will receive information to participate in a presale event, before playoff tickets go on-sale to the general public at 2:00 p.m. Fans will be able to purchase single game tickets for the team’s first three home games of the First Round at Oracle Arena, exclusively online at warriors.com.

Fans interested in securing playoff tickets by joining the Season Ticket Holder Priority Wait List, which currently has over 43,000 members, can still do so by calling 888-GSW-HOOP. Fans interested in taking part in the exclusive presales for Warriors Insiders, can do so by signing up for Insider Email Alerts. Those taking part in these presale events will have the opportunity to secure single game tickets for the first three homes games of the First Round before the general public. Season ticket holders, priority wait list members, and Warriors Insiders will receive presale opportunities for all remaining 2019 NBA Playoff home games as they are confirmed.

In the event that a Warriors playoff game is sold out, tickets may still be purchased through the Warriors official resale marketplace, located at warriors.com, where season ticket holders and other fans resell tickets that are 100% guaranteed by the Warriors. The Warriors ticket marketplace offers a safe and convenient way for fans to access all levels of tickets throughout the regular season and playoffs.This year, the Zags will lose one, most likely two, and possibly more players to an early departure. Such is what happens when your team becomes really good. The Gonzaga Bulldogs, for the most part, have avoided a plethora of early departures throughout their tenure.

That time is probably changing, starting with the departures of Nigel Williams-Goss and Zach Collins in 2017. We will probably see at least Rui Hachimura and Brandon Clarke head for a basketball career that actually pays some money.

Just to keep track with how the process all works, here are the key dates we, as Zag fans, need to know:Any player who would like to put their name into the NBA Draft hat needs to declare their intentions by this date. Just because a player tosses their name into the ring at this point does not mean their college career is over. This is the “testing the water” phase. Johnathan Williams III did this after his junior year. Don’t be surprised if Zach Norvell does it this year. As long as a player does not hire an agent, they maintain their college eligibility.

For a few days in Chicago, the best of the best will get together and participate in the draft combine, which allows scouts from all the NBA teams to measure stats, watch agility tests, and study players during five-on-five action. The combine is by invite-only, although often times, guaranteed top picks and other players will avoid it, most likely if they have a verbal agreement with a team. If Zion is not on the draft combine roster, it literally means nothing.

Welcome to the straight-up idiocy of the whole process. The NBA and the NCAA have different deadlines for when players need to take their hats out of the NBA draft pool, but in reality, the date that matters for us is May 29. Any player who has not signed with an agent needs to let Gonzaga know they plan on returning by this date or it is done.I guess theoretically this date matters if a player is coming from Europe, but as said above, not for our purposes.This is the big day to put on the calendar. Crazy to think that Gonzaga is at a place where this is worth watching pretty much every year.

The Boston Celtics defeated the Miami Heat 110-105 on Monday night at TD Garden in Boston.

With the win, the Celtics (46-32) remain fourth in the Eastern Conference. The Heat, meanwhile, stayed in eighth ahead of the Orlando Magic, who lost to the Toronto Raptors. Were Miami (38-39) and Orlando (38-40) to finish with the same record, the Magic own the tiebreaker by virtue of winning the season series.

Kyrie Irving returned to the Celtics lineup after missing their 110-96 defeat to the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday. He finished with 25 points and eight rebounds. Al Horford was also absent for the Nets game and had 19 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists Monday.

The Heat continued to be without Justise Winslow, Josh Richardson and Rodney McGruder, all of whom are nursing injuries. Dwyane Wade helped to pick up the slack, scoring 17 points in the defeat. Goran Dragic also had a game-high 30 points.

Celtics’ Big 1st Quarter vs. Heat Nothing More Than Fool’s Gold

After the first quarter, the Celtics led 36-17. Any fan who has watched this team all season knew exactly how things would unfold from there.

According to NBA.com, Boston is first in first-quarter net rating (10.6). Over the next two quarters, the team’s net rating falls to 21st (minus-1.8) and 13th (1.9).

The phrase “flipping a switch” generally has a positive connotation in sports. An athlete or team suddenly transforms and becomes a better version of itself. The Celtics have flipped a switch all season, except they’ve gone in the wrong direction.

Boston starts out of the gate and plays at an elite level and then suddenly looks pedestrian.

One could potentially write off the second quarter as a result of head coach Brad Stevens turning to his reserves more. The team’s struggles in the third quarter are more confounding because the starters have had time to rest, and Stevens has had a chance to make any strategic tweaks and communicate that to his players.

As badly as the #Celtics outplayed the Heat in the first half, it’s still a game at the half. 61-47 C’s with Kyrie leading the way with 15. Can the C’s show a killer instinct in the second half that hasn’t been there nearly enough this year? #CUsRise

With 8:02 left in the first half, the Celtics led by 23 points. Slowly but surely the Heat chipped away at their massive deficit.

Kelly Olynyk sank three free throws at the 6:44 mark of the fourth quarter to make it a three-point game, 95-92. Boston opened up a little more breathing room before Wade again trimmed the gap to three points, 103-100, at the two-minute mark.

The C’s defense was unable to slow down Miami, and the offense wasn’t doing much better.

Nuggets vs Spurs : The San Antonio Spurs and Denver Nuggets meet Wednesday in NBA action at the Pepsi Center. The Spurs, Blazers and Jazz have already clinched playoff berths, and are still. Visit SportsLine now to find out which side of the Spurs vs Nuggets.

The San Antonio Spurs and Denver Nuggets meet Wednesday in NBA action at the Pepsi Center.

The San Antonio Spurs look for a victory here after splitting their last eight games. The San Antonio Spurs are averaging 111.8 points on 47.8 percent shooting and allowing 110.4 points on 46.3 percent shooting. DeMar DeRozan is averaging 21.5 points and 6.2 assists while LaMarcus Aldridge is averaging 21.3 points and 9.1 rebounds.

Rudy Gay is the third double-digit scorer and Bryn Forbes is dishing 2.1 assists. The San Antonio Spurs are shooting 39.4 percent from beyond the arc and 82 percent from the free throw line. The San Antonio Spurs are allowing 36.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.7 rebounds per game. The San Antonio Spurs have split their last six road games.

The Denver Nuggets could also use a win here after splitting their last eight games. The Denver Nuggets are averaging 110.9 points on 46.6 percent shooting and allowing 106.7 points on 45.7 percent shooting. Nikola Jokic is averaging 20.3 points and 10.9 rebounds while Jamal Murray is averaging 18.2 points and 4.8 assists.

Gary Harris is the third double-digit scorer and Paul Millsap is grabbing 7.3 rebounds. The Denver Nuggets are shooting 35.2 percent from beyond the arc and 75.8 percent from the free throw line. The Denver Nuggets are allowing 33.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.7 rebounds per game. The Denver Nuggets have won four of their last five home games.

The Spurs are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 road games, 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Western Conference and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Nuggets are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 0 days rest, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall.

The Spurs are 21-7 ATS in the last 28 meetings in Denver and 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings. The under is 21-7 in Nuggets last 28 overall. The under is 12-4 in Spurs last 16 overall.

The Denver Nuggets came into last nights game losing their last five games by an average of 11 points and shooting under 42 percent from the field. While they’ll be eager to get back on track, the Nuggets certainly aren’t playing well enough to lay chalk with, especially when you throw in the quick turnaround.

The San Antonio Spurs obviously have had their struggles on the road all season, but they’re 16-6 ATS when an underdog of less than six points and have a long history of giving the Nuggets problems, even this season. I’ll take my chances with the Spurs and the free buckets based on the recent struggles from the Nuggets.

Any alterations from manager Roy Hodgson will be tactical, with the likes of James McArthur and Christian Benteke pushing to be involved from the start.Tottenham will be playing their first ever match in their new stadium – they were unbeaten in their last 19 league games at the old White Hart Lane (W17 D2), winning the last 14 in a row.

This match will see Spurs become the first club to play a home game at two different stadiums within a single Premier League season.Mauricio Pochettino’s have won their last seven Premier League meetings against Crystal Palace, six of them by a 1-0 scoreline – against no side have they won more consecutively in the competition (also 7 vs Man City and Swansea).

Crystal Palace are winless in their last six away league games against Spurs (D2 L4), failing to score in their last five. Their last league win at Spurs was in November 1997, 1-0 courtesy of a Neil Shipperley goal.Tottenham have won 1-0 in each of their last five Premier League meetings with Crystal Palace, the longest run of consecutive identical results between two sides in the history of the competition.

Crystal Palace are looking to secure three consecutive away league wins for the first time since August 2019. After a run of seven consecutive wins in Premier League London derby matches, Spurs have won just one of their last four such matches (D1 L2). Crystal Palace’s only away London derby win this season was at Fulham on the opening weekend – the last top-flight campaign that saw them win two away London derbies was 1997-98 (vs Wimbledon and Spurs).

Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha has scored in each of his last three away Premier League games (4 goals in total). No player has ever scored in four consecutive Premier League away appearances for the Eagles.

Captain Marvel Full Movie

Marvel Full Movie : Watch Online & Download. Captain Marvel 2019 : Captain Marvel has responded to doubters,Download HD 4K™ MKV, 1080p, HD, 720p Quality In any Internet Connected Devices iphone, tab, mobile, Android, mac, pc, desktop, laptop, rolltop trolls and a pernicious Hollywood myth in the strongest way possible,

The movie starring Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson takes place in 1995 when a former U.S air force fighter Carol Dancers (Larson) turns into Captain Marvel when she is infused with alien superpowers when the Earth is caught in the centre of “galactic conflict.”“In the past we have seen female characters in the Marvel movies like Black Widow played by Scarlett Johansson, but this is the first time we see in the Marvel Universe a female character that is the driving force behind the story,” Diakow said, continuing that the only other superhero movie we see this is in the Warner Brothers DC Studios movie Wonder Woman.

Diakow explains the history of the character Captain Marvel goes back to the 1960s when the character was initially written as a male superhero, however that changed in the ’70s with the feminist movement.

“It is no surprise that comic books since their inception have always been an avenue and a platform to spread social messages and address topics of injustice, civil strife, and equality,” Diakow said. Two other characters who hold the same role as Captain Marvel in this sense is Captain America back in the Second World War, and the Black Panther who has been a conversation since the movies release in early 2018.

However, it is not just the fact that Captain Marvel is the first leading woman in this era of movies that is empowering, but the characters name also leads to a source of empowerment.“You look at the name of Captain Marvel it is empowering, it encompasses the entire universe that we are talking about here,” Diakow said. “Judging by what they do with her in the film, she is one of the most powerful forces in the galaxy.”The movie is projected to earn between $156 million to $160 million during its debut weekend at the theatres – expecting this movie to be the biggest blockbuster so far in 2019.Diakow explains what makes superhero movies still popular even after so many have been made, is the ways that both the Marvel and DC studios continue to find new ways to tell stories.“They are just trying to find a unique package, to spread a message of empowerment through the form of a rousing adventure story, with a lot of great messages at its core.”Perhaps worst of all, she doesn’t smile enough, the trolls whined. So they posted doctored pictures of Larson, in her Captain Marvel regalia, doing what superheroes—male, female or otherwise—seldom do while rescuing Earth from almost certain annihilation. Smiling.

But besieged movie studios have learned how to deal with online turmoil. With hundreds of millions of dollars on the line, the Walt Disney Co. empire—and Larson herself—struck back.Not that long ago, a studio trying something different—remaking a classic comedy with women in the lead roles instead of men, say, or casting a female Asian-American as a day-saving fighter pilot—struggled with how to respond to online harassment campaigns. That wounded Sony Pictures’ 2016 “Ghostbusters’’ reboot, and it drove Kelly Marie Tran of Disney’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” off Instagram.

“If a backlash gets enough visibility in the news, it’s the tipping point that can become a crisis situation,” said Justin Pertschuk, senior vice president of digital marketing at Universal Pictures. “Ultimately a negative conversation on social that gets amplified through the new media has the power to break a movie.”She shared altered photos of other Marvel superheroes, the male Iron Man, the male Captain America and the male Doctor Strange, with silly grins to illustrate the double standard of the “smile more” trope.

She also countered another line of attack. The comic-book Captain Marvel has been a man and a woman over the years (unlike, say, Wonder Woman), and Larson faced questions over whether she was brawny enough to play one of the most powerful characters in the Marvel universe. In a show of strength, she posted videos of her workouts on Instagram, including one where she pushed a 5,000-pound Jeep. Larson also didn’t shy away from the topic of female empowerment in interviews.
