The world of sports does not stop at this beginning of the year. The NBA day left numerous images among a great concern about the evolution of the pandemic. From the United States also comes the title of the Alabama Crimson Tide in the national college football tournament.
Toronto Raptors, in free fall
The offensive contribution of McCollum, Lillard and Anthony allowed the Trail Blazers to overcome a deficit of 17 points with the Toronto Raptors and overcome the first triple-double of the season achieved by the Cameroonian power forward Pascal Siakam, who finished the game with 22 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists.
The Raptors player once again had the winning basket in his hands for the second consecutive night, but wasted it. This new loss will make the Raptors an incredible 2-8 in the standings. Two seasons ago they lifted the ring but the exits of Leonar, Ibaka and Gasol have diminished them too much.
Alabama wins national college football title
DeVonta Smith, Najee Harris and Mac Jones led Alabama Crimson Tide with a surgical and explosive performance to win the 52-24 college national championship game against Ohio State.
The final game of a pandemic college football season, a season that was uncertain to play in the summer and full of interruptions in the fall, ended in the most predictable fashion: Alabama (13-0) as the national champion for the sixth time.
Carlos Sainz loses time again
The problems for Carlos Sainz accumulate. On the stage disputed this morning he added a puncture and was in the opposite direction and anchored at the same point for a long time. The organization already warned that the stage could be conditioned by punctures and navigation and it seems that Carlos has encountered the two crosses.
All in all, Sainz has left 21 minutes. The Mini rider went through the fifth control with too wide a handicap with a Peterhansel that seems the strongest this year.
The Fiat of the Atlético players
The storm Filomena greatly complicated transport in Madrid and even forced the suspension of the match between Atlético de Madrid and Athletic de Liga. Against this background, the rojiblanco coach, Diego Simeone, urged his pupils to find “alternative means” and pull “creativity” to reach training this Monday at the Wanda Metropolitano. Said and done.
The players of the Madrid squad got together in groups to move around and the most striking, without a doubt, was the one formed by Yannick Carrasco, Thomas Lemar and Sime Vrsaljko, who arrived at the session on a Fiat Panda 4×4 from the 80s. According to the SER chain, the Belgian, who was the driver of the surreal trip, was lent the car by his neighbor “because it goes very well on snow.”
Machín and Míchel, dismissed
Two LaLiga coaches have been fired on the morning of this Tuesday, January 12: Míchel at Huesca and Pablo Machín at Deportivo Alavés. The defeat of the team from Huesca against Betis this Monday was the trigger for this dismissal, while the dynamics of the Alava team was negative, although they did not occupy relegation positions.
