#1 the second. Though Memphis von lebaobei123 15.04.2019 04:47

Rangers manager Mark Warburton is happy with the progress his team is making ahead of the new Scottish Premiership season. The Ibrox side won their third League Cup game in six days without conceding a goal as they were 3-0 victors at Lowland League side East Stirlingshire.A potentially tricky tie on an awkward artificial pitch was negotiated with relative ease as an early Andy Halliday penalty and Josh Windass first goal for the club had Rangers 2-0 up at the break. Joe Dodoo added a third and although they should have won by more, Warburton is content his men are heading in the right direction.Rangers now play one more pool game against Stranraer on Monday then a friendly with Burnley before they start their league campaign against Hamilton on August 6, live on Sky Sports. Josh Windass celebrates his first competitive goal for Rangers since his summer move from Accrington Former Brentford coach Warburton said: It could have been more. Ive not seen the stats yet but we had a lot of possession.Maybe we could have tested their keeper a bit more, especially in the second half, but we kept trying to do the right thing on a difficult surface against a very willing opponent.You can always talk about scoring more goals but I thought we did a very professional job and now we move on to game four. Andy Halliday converts a penalty to put Rangers ahead at Ochilview I would agree that the longer we get into the season the rustiness will ease off and those chances will go in. Against Motherwell last week we could have scored four or five in the second half.It was the same on Tuesday night against Annan and the same here. Were getting in good shape and hopefully on Monday we can finish off with a positive display.Warburton took heart from the impact Windass and Dodoo - two of his nine summer signings so far - made as Rangers all but assured themselves of a last-16 place. Warburton gave Joe Dodoo his debut at East Stirlingshire and was happy to see the youngster score He added: I was pleased for Josh and Joe. You saw with Josh he was very willing to get forward. He showed real bravery, composure and technique in the first half.Joe gave us some real pace as well, which is what we wanted to add to the squad. Hes very confident in his touch too so Im delighted for him getting his goal.

The Grizzlies erased most of a 25-point deficit before Durant, the leagues scoring champion, got hot.INDIANAPOLIS -- Eight straight wins isnt enough for the perfect Pacers. They have far bigger plans. The NBAs last unbeaten team remained undaunted Monday night, getting 23 points from Paul George and the first triple double of Lance Stephensons career to run past Memphis 95-79 and complete a brutal five-game in seven-day stretch with a sweep. Indiana extended its franchise-best start to 8-0, becoming the seventh team to achieve the feat since 2000. "Everything were shooting for is attainable, but weve got a long way to go, a lot of work to do," coach Frank Vogel said. "It was probably our most complete game." The Pacers made no secret of this seasons plan -- dethroning two-time defending NBA champion Miami. The best way to do that, they figured, was earning the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference and so far, nobody has been able to touch Indiana. The Pacers already have a 3 1/2-game lead over Miami and Atlanta in the East. Indiana is showing no sign of slowing down, either. Rather than look fatigued after back-to-back wins last Tuesday and Wednesday and two more back-to-back wins Friday and Saturday, something Vogel said he had never been part of previously, the Pacers appeared to get stronger Monday. They again dominated the glass, outrebounding Memphis 30-15 in the first half and finishing with a 45-32 advantage. They again relied on suffocating defence, which held Memphis (3-4) to a season-low point total and nearly 20 points below its season scoring average (98.5). And again they were content to share the honours. George scored seven of his game-high points total during a key 9-3 stretch to close out the third quarter. That gave Indiana a 72-55 lead. Stephenson, who is playing the best basketball of his career, finished with 13 points, 11 rebounds, a career-high 12 assists and only one turnover. Roy Hibbert added five more blocks to his league-leading total (35), George Hill finished with 13 points in his third game back from a hip injury and Luis Scola added 12 points off the bench. Indiana could be making things even tougher for opponents soon, too. Vogel said before the game that former All-Star Danny Granger, who once led the Pacers in scoring for five straight seasons, will begin working out Tuesday and could return to practice as soon as Wednesday. Vogel did not say when Granger would return to the rotation. Granger has not played this season because of a strained left ccalf.dddddddddddd For now, though, fans seem content with the way things are going. During the final minutes, they even serenaded Pacers players with chants of "un-de-feat-ed." But the Pacers arent content with that. "We are not looking at this 8-0 start," said George, the NBAs Most Improved Player last season. "We want to enjoy it, but we must let our strengths continue to lead us to victory. Everybody helps, everybody is doing their job." For Memphis, it was a rough night. Marc Gasol , who showed his frustration at times during the second half, finished with 15 points and six rebounds. The only other Memphis players to reach double-figures were two guys with Hoosier State ties -- Zach Randolph had 12 and Mike Conley added 11. The Grizzlies shot just 41.3 per cent from the field and were only 6 of 19 from 3-point range, and after a 15-3 run put Memphis in an 80-55 deficit just 83 seconds into the fourth quarter, the Grizzlies never had a chance. "Theyre the best defensive team in this league, they really compress the paint, it was hard for any of us guards to get in there and make anything happen," Conley said. "Theyve got a lot of length, theyve got great guards that play great D and they made us take contested shots." Indiana didnt leave anything in doubt Monday. The Pacers jumped to a 13-8 lead in the opening minutes, scored the final six points of the first quarter to make it 23-16 and then methodically pulled away in the second. Though Memphis closed to 46-39 at halftime, the Pacers opened the second half on a 7-2 run to rebuild a 12-point lead and put it away with the spurt spurred by George and Stephenson that eventually made it 80-55. "Everybodys on the same page, everybodys playing together and everybodys playing smart," Stephenson said. "When we play like that, no one can stop us." Indiana now gets a three-day break before playing another back-to-back -- hosting Milwaukee on Friday and visiting Chicago on Saturday. Notes: Indiana led at halftime for only the second time this season. ... Memphis continued its trend, winning all of its even-numbered games and losing all of its odd-numbered games. ... The Pacers have won the last three in this series and are now 14-3 all-time against the Grizzlies in Indy. ... Grizzlies forward Quincy Poindexter left the game in the second quarter with a fractured nose and did not return. ' ' '
