Replay overturn plays key role in Warriors’ Game 1 win

first_img“I knew that. I knew he was late on the drive, and I knew I had my man beat and he came over a little late,” he said. “So when they called the charge, I was surprised, but I’m glad they reviewed it.”While James was moving when Durant left the ground, he still believed he was in a legal position and should have gotten the call even after it went to replay.“I thought I read that play just as well as I read any play in my career, defensively,” he said. “I saw the drive, I was outside the charge line, I stepped in, took the contact. It’s a huge play. It’s a huge play.”Durant made both foul shots to tie the game.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next FIFA lifts ban on Guatemala ahead of 2026 World Cup vote China population now over 1.4 billion as birthrate falls LATEST STORIES Winfrey details her decision to withdraw from Simmons film Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew “It was determined he was out of the restricted area, but he was not in a legal guarding position prior to Durant’s separate shooting motion,” referee Ken Mauer told a pool reporter. “So we had to change it to a blocking foul.”The overturn angered the Cavaliers, who were upset the call even went to review because they felt James was clearly outside the restricted area.“It doesn’t make sense to go review something if the review is if he’s on the line or if he’s close to the charge circle, that’s the review. He wasn’t close,” coach Tyronn Lue said. “So what are we reviewing? Either call a blocking foul or call an offensive foul. For our team to come out and play their hearts out and compete the way we did, man, I mean, it’s bad.“It’s never been done before where you know he’s outside the restricted, and then you go there and overturn the call and say it’s a block. It’s never been done, ever, in the history of the game. And then tonight in the finals on the biggest stage, when our team played well, played our (butt) off, man, it ain’t right. It ain’t right.”Durant said he had seen that play reviewed before and was confident he would get the call once officials looked at the replay.ADVERTISEMENT Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant (35) reacts to a call while standing over Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James during the second half of Game 1 of basketball’s NBA Finals in Oakland, Calif., Thursday, May 31, 2018. (AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez)OAKLAND, California — Block or charge?One of the most difficult calls to make in the split second of fast-paced NBA action helped swing Game 1 of the NBA Finals in Golden State’s favor.

NWE Launches US$25M Supplier Credit through Banks in Liberia to Import Heavy Equipment

first_imgIn an effort to provide access to much needed financing for heavy equipment for road construction, agribusiness, mining, forestry, and other sectors; Nationwide Equipment (NWE) of Jacksonville, Florida (USA) has made an offer to work with Ecobank, United Bank for Africa (UBA), and International Bank (IB), to provide US$25 million in structured financing for the heavy equipment market in Liberia. If successful and if there is a market demand, the Company intends to expand the program as the local marketplace may need.The arrangement allows for the local banks to conduct their usual underwriting due diligence on each transaction and, depending on the transaction, provide customers approved for loans up to three years for settlement of loan facilities obtained through the program. For each transaction, the banks will have access to capital through Nationwide’s Supplier Credit Program and will not have to tie up their own funds for heavy equipment purchases. The banks in turn will issue the necessary stand-by bank guarantees as credit enhancement to secure each transaction they underwrite for their customers. This is a clear opportunity for road contractors, engineers, trucking companies, miners, farmers and others to more easily import heavy equipment with minimal down-payment and longer than usual tenor to pay off the equipment loans. This will allow the banks access to additional resources and capital beyond their own to meet the needs of its customers, while Nationwide supplies the market.“We are more than happy to work with the banks in Liberia to provide additional access to capital to finance acquisitions of heavy equipment. We have extensive experience in Africa, working with banks to make deals happen as we leverage the banks’ knowledge of their local markets. So, this is a good opportunity for us as well as good for Liberia given the infrastructure development needs it has,” says Mr. Ed Kostenski, President and CEO of Nationwide Equipment. For his part, Olalekan Balogun, the Managing Director of UBA, one of the banks engaged said, “I look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship.”Founded in 1983, Nationwide Equipment has served customers in 60 countries, and specializes in sale and financing of agricultural, mining, construction, energy, oil and gas, marine equipment, emergency-ambulatory, waste-sanitation, trucking-logistics and much more. As an Industry leader, Nationwide Equipment has experience and resources to provide high quality equipment and world-class after sales support.The company’s Africa Sales and Marketing Director, Henrique Caine added, “the opportunities for development in our sub-region are immense, and so this credit arrangement with the commercial banks is very much on time, we look forward to providing a lot of creative and flexible financing solutions if the market demands for it.”For more information about this program, customers may contact +231-776857538 or +231-880212525, or any of the banks mentioned.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
