Happy New Years Sports Goers!

Thursday 1/1/14

Hope you all kicked in the New Year in style! Overnight in the Big Bash the Sydney Thunder found themselves back on the winners list with a comprehensive win over the Perth Scorchers away from home. Led by the great man himself Jacques Kallis putting in a vintage allrounders performance with 70 runs opening the batting then 2 wickets during the Perth innings. The other old head of the Team Mike Hussey also found ways to involve himself closing the innings with a very handy cameo of 36* followed by taking a blinder at second slip off the bowling of Kallis to dismiss Ashoton Turner. For the Scorchers Michael Carberry may have discovered a little bit of form towards the back end of their innings with 69* off just the 48 deliveries.

Todays NBA results reflected a continued struggle for the Cleveland Cavaliers with superstar LeBron James being ruled out injured for the next couple of weeks leaving only Kyrie Irving of the new big 3 fit to play for the side. The loss of James was further soured by an emphatic loss to the Milwaukee Bucks who were simply to good for the shorthanded Cavs coasting home to a 96-80 victory. A vintage Tim Duncan clutch play forced the Pelicans into an overtime game which saw the Spurs end up prevailing with a 93-95 victory for Timmy and the boys. Kevin Durant was welcomed back to the OKC lineup against the Suns and saw fit to help himself to an extremely dominant stat line of 44/10/7 with an efficient 13-23 shooting seeing the Thunder home to an overtime win against Phoenix.
