Jayson Tatum is Fired Up Against the Heat After Reuniting with Deuce in the NBA Bubble

Two-year-old Deuce just met his dad Jayson Tatum after a several month gap. The father and son duo are adorable, and the little man is firing up his dad with his presence in Game 1 between the Celtics and the Heat!

Tatum and Deuce shared a heartwarming moment when the 22-year-old received his son with wide arms and a warm hug a few hours before the game. Unlike other teams, the Celtics waited till the conference finals to invite their families inside the bubble, and the long wait has been a painful one for the team. 

But now, the Celtics came into Game 1 with their families in attendance. Most importantly, Jayson Tatum had Deuce to cheer him on during the ballgame. And Deuce, a handsome young man, was shown on the camera during a moment in the early minutes of the game. 

He was rooting for his dad from the sidelines and seemed very lively. The little kid is a major motivating factor for Tatum to perform better, and reuniting with him after a span of nearly five months would give him all the strength and confidence heading into a crucial fixture. 

Jayson Tatum even displayed his love for his son through his sneakers. The Celtics star drew a heart and wrote Deuce’s name on the back of his Air Jordan 34 “Chinese Takeouts.” 

Moreover, Tatum fired early in the game to give Boston a swift lead in the first quarter. 

Jayson Tatum keeps proving he’s a certified baller! 

We’ve seen Tatum’s fadeaways far too many times already, and it never gets boring. It is a joy to watch him make that shot every single time. As Game 1 tipped-off, Tatum got into the groove early with some terrific efforts. 

Boston climbed to a quick lead in the first quarter, and a beautiful three-pointer from Tatum smoothly added to their advantage. He made the shot from a quick move against Kendrick Nunn, who had no chance of guarding it. 

 

Jayson Tatum is proving to be a dominating presence on both ends of the court. He’s been a major contributor towards the Celtics’ tough defense in the playoffs. They’ve so far been the better team in that aspect, and Tatum has been brilliant with scoring too.

He carries an average of 25.3 points in the 2020 postseason and had an excellent series against the Raptors. But now, the Heat pose a different challenge altogether. Can Tatum and the Celtics run past Miami and earn a finals ticket for the first time in ten years?

David Ortiz says he's recovering from COVID-19

Retired Boston Red Sox player David Ortiz says he’s recovering after being diagnosed with COVID-19.

Ortiz said Friday that he was asymptomatic, but that his brother who was also infected had to spend a week in the hospital and lost 25 pounds (11 kilograms). Ortiz was speaking during the NESN broadcast of the Red Sox game against the New York Yankees on Friday.

“This is no joke,” Ortiz said. “You don’t realize how crazy this is until it hits home. And I learned so much about this COVID-19 thing while I was going through the process. It’s an experience to be honest with you.”

Sunday Night Football DraftKings Picks: NFL DFS lineup advice for Week 2 Patriots-Seahawks Showdown tournaments

Sunday Night Football DraftKings Picks: NFL DFS lineup advice for Week 2 Patriots-Seahawks Showdown tournaments

The Seahawks host the Patriots on Sunday Night Football in Week 2, a chance for Cam Newton to return to prime time for the first time since last year’s disastrous Week 2 showing on Thursday Night Football that subsequently ended Newton’s season. Hopefully he’ll do better this time around because our DraftKings Showdown picks are New England-heavy, along with some Russell Wilson and Tyler Lockett action.

After the Patriots ran Newton so much in Week 1, it’s not easy to predict game flow for this one, so we’ve gone with a super value captain pick in Damiere Byrd. It might not be for the risk-averse, but it wouldn’t take much from Byrd for the rest of this lineup to carry us a long way.

MORE DK SHOWDOWN: How to win a Showdown contest

DraftKings Showdown Picks: Seahawks vs. Patriots

Captain (1.5x price, 1.5x points): WR Damiere Byrd, Patriots ($2,100)

Byrd led New England receivers in Week 1 snaps despite not catching any passes (he was on the field for 56-of-64 possible plays). Byrd showed some intriguing possession-receiver ability in Arizona a year ago, so at his bottom-of-the-barrel price and possibility of added value in DK’s PPR scoring, we’re taking a shot on a supreme value captain.

FLEX: QB Russell Wilson, Seahawks ($12,800)

Wilson never seems to care much about who he’s playing – the numbers always look good in the end. He benefited a bit in Week 1 from his touchdowns to Chris Carson being through the air rather than on the ground, but regardless, Wilson likely will be the highest-owned player in this game and we can’t afford to fade him.

WEEK 2 PPR RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end |  D/ST | Kicker

FLEX: QB Cam Newton, Patriots ($12,000)

Newton looked as healthy as he’s looked in a long time in the opener, and a trip to play at Seattle isn’t what it once was, what with no fans and a much different defense than the Legion of Boom. Cam should get us points both through the air and on the ground on Sunday night.

FLEX: WR Tyler Lockett, Seahawks ($9,200)

You could use DK Metcalf here, if you prefer. Someone’s going to struggle against Stephon Gilmore on Sunday, and the hope is that it’s the out-wide Metcalf instead of the slot-man Lockett. Wilson trusts Lockett so much that even a difficult matchup shouldn’t take his targets away, and we like Lockett in DK’s PPR scoring.

FLEX: WR Julian Edelman, Patriots ($8,000)

Here’s one little DK trick in Showdown contests: Follow the ‘questionable’ tag. Edelman has already been reported likely to play (check before kickoff to be sure), but he’ll have that ‘Q’ next to him on DK all day. In our experience, that depresses ownership, so it’s the perfect time to take advantage of a player made for DK’s PPR scoring.

WEEK 2 STANDARD RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

FLEX: RB Sony Michel, Patriots ($5,600)

Between Michel and Newton, we should have New England’s goal-line scoring covered. It’s always risky playing a New England RB, but you’ve got to take those risks sometimes to win a tournament. We’ve already got too much investment in New England’s short passing game to try James White out, so we’ll take Michel instead.

Liverpool confirm £41m signing of Wolves star Jota

Liverpool confirm £41m signing of Wolves star Jota

Liverpool have confirmed the signing of Diogo Jota from Wolves as the Portuguese winger heads to Anfield in an initial £41 million ($53m) move.

Goal confirmed Liverpool’s interest in Jota on Friday,  as the Reds moved quickly onto their next target shortly after sealing the signing of Thiago Alcantara.

Just one day after confirming the signing of the Spain international midfielder, Liverpool have locked up a deal for Jota, who joins on a five-year contract as he becomes the second signing to arrive at Anfield this week.

The Reds could end up paying as much as £45m ($58m) for the Portugal international, with up to £4m set to be owed to Wolves in potential add-ons after they agreed to flexible payment terms that were crucial to completing the deal.

Liverpool will pay as little as 10 per cent of the initial figure over the next 12 months, with some of the cost also offset by Ki-Jana Hoever’s £10m ($13m) move the other way.

The duo of Jota and Thiago joins full-back Kostas Tsimikas as Liverpool’s summer signings,  with Jurgen Klopp’s champions having added to their squad as they look to defend their Premier League crown.

Following confirmation of his move, the 23-year-old told the club’s official website: “It’s just a really exciting moment for me and my family.

“All of my path since I was a kid and now, to join a club like Liverpool – the world champions – is just unbelievable. I just want to get started.

“It is one of the best teams in the world – the best at the moment because they are world champions. When you look at the Premier League, you always see Liverpool as one of the biggest teams in the country, so it’s impossible to say no.

“So we just want to come [here], to give our best and hopefully I can become a good option for Liverpool in the future.”

He added on the prospect of playing alongside Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino: “They are world-class players. Every match, they try to win. They score a lot of goals and they work together.

“I want to be one more piece to join that three. That’s what I will do. They are obviously more experienced than me, so the first stage is to connect with them, to learn with them. Hopefully I can be a good help for them and the club to win games.”

Jota, who will wear the No.20 shirt for Liverpool, originally moved to Wolves in 2017, originally on loan from Atletico Madrid before the signing was made permanent one year later.

The Portuguese winger scored 44 goals in 131 appearances for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side, helping them rise from the Championship to the Premier League and into contenders for the European places.

After scoring nine goals during his first season in England’s top flight, Jota added seven more in 2019-20, while adding a further nine in 14 Europa League games.

He will now join Liverpool as much-needed cover for the club’s first-choice front three of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.

Klopp and Liverpool had also targeted Watford star Ismaila Sarr, but turned to Jota after refusing to meet the £40m ($52m) asking price for the Senegal winger.

Wolves boss Nuno all but confirmed the deal earlier on Saturday , saying that Liverpool have added a “great player and boy” that was looking to move on to new challenges.
