NBA great Dirk Nowitzki ended his playing career on Wednesday night against the San Antonio Spurs. He had 20 points in the contest.

Nowitzki scored his final basket in his career in a fadeaway jumper.

Before the game, the Spurs honored their longtime rival before the contest with a video tribute. That made Nowitzki emotional before being introduced.

“I can’t say enough about what the Spurs did for Dirk [Wednesday night],” Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle said.

He goes out as the NBA’s sixth-leading scorer. The Wurzburg, Germany native changed the game for big man being a knock-down shooter.

The 40-year-old was a first-round draft pick by the Milwaukee Bucks in the 1998 NBA Draft. He was traded by the Bucks with Pat Garrity to the Mavericks for Robert “Tractor” Traylor.

In his final season of his career, he made 51 appearances, including 20 starts. In his final two games of his career, he had 50 points, as he had a season-high 30 points on Tuesday night in his finale in Dallas, Texas.

Horse Racing

6 Essential Ways to Win With Your Horse Bets

By The Capital Sports Report Staff

Horse racing has been great entertainment for the people and a money gainer for the bettors for countless years already. There are various major horse racing events you can bet on to gain a lot of cash once you win. But of course, winning a bet will not be a piece of cake.

Winning with your horse bets can also be a bit challenging. Although you may wager out from your luck, your winning chances can still be put at stake. Thankfully, there are things to overcome the potential losing bets.

Hence, get to know these six important ways to win with your horse bets.

Study the Race First

Before you fully engage in horse betting (or any sports wagering), you must gear up and do some research first. Battling against the probability unprepared may catch you off guard, which may result in loss. Therefore, you begin with reading a betting guide for beginners as a starter.

You may also wonder your mind on how forms can contribute to your chances of winning. Racing forms consist of all the vital information about the horse contenders in the particular race. They can help you formulate your opinion and strategize your ways.

These forms contain the past performances of the horse, class of the particular race, the form of the horse trainer, and other vital data in helping you decide which horse you should pick as a horse bet.

Observe the Horses

Physical appearances can be a sign of a great horse. What you see can actually help you determine which horses are most likely to be the competitive ones. Just take a good look at some regions of their body and assess those. Here are the four main indications of the right horse to bet:

  • A horse’s hair can mean something. If it has a nice, fine, and shiny hair coat, the horse is already healthy and in good condition. Thus, it is already good to go.
  • Ears being large and pointed can indicate a horse’s alertness. If its ears are pricked, the horse is already aware of what is happening in the surrounding, making him ready to run.
  • A toned muscle built signifies the training the horse has undergone. Plus, you will need a good horse bet with a chest that is not full of fats or a body with an excellent structure.
  • Nerves are needed to be watched out for. Although they regularly sweat before the race starts, an overly anxious horse is not a good horse to pick.

Check the Weather

Even though horse racing is a sport that can be done, whether rain or shine, the sudden weather changes can significantly affect the horses’ performances; thus, affecting your chances of winning. Therefore, always keep an eye on the weather for you to adjust your betting plans.

Although the horses may seem unbothered by the heat or rain, it is actually the jockey who will struggle and suffer the most in this kind of race. Yes, there are few who are experts in riding horses when it rains, but most of them hate it. In the end, this will have an impact on the horses’ performances.

Some horses will have their better runs in the wet non-turf or all-weather course race. However, some will also probably get worse. That is why knowing the horse and its past performances are needed.

Trust Your Strategy and Stick With It

Consistency is a skill that a punter must acquire. Start generating this skill by sticking with your strategies in betting on your horse picks. Being an indecisive person will lead you nowhere and will only put you in unfortunate circumstances. Instead, have trust in what you have strategized.

The novices in horse betting often assume that strategizing can win your bet every time. However, this is not the case in the real-case scenario. Strategies allow you to wager on winning bets to cancel out the potential losses for long-term gains.

Learn the Various Types of Horse Betting

Knowing the different types of horse betting can give you many advantages. Primarily, it can make you skilful and versatile in betting. But the most important of all, it will help you gain more money by doubling or tripling your payouts from more complex bets.

Beginners get intimidated with the terms like Show, Place, Win, Exacta, Trifecta, Superfecta, Daily Doubles, and many more, probably because of the language. But once learned, you can execute these complicated bet types for higher cash returns.

Know the Odds and Payouts Well

This part is where you will need a bit of mathematical and logical skills. Before placing your horse bet, make sure that you know the odds and payouts of the horse from a particular betting type well. This will help you figure out the value of your bet and betting market.

Once you find out the worthy and great odds, check for its payout for your potential return when your bet wins.

Final Thoughts

These simple yet essential ways can indeed change your game in betting horses. Just keep the consistency and dedication alive and be a responsible punter. Learn from the lapses you will make unplanned and come up with better ideas in betting. Lastly, do not be afraid to gain experience, for it will teach you many things outside of this list.

Curtis Thompson throwing a javelin at a competition this summer.

Thompson proud to represent Florence at the Tokyo Olympics

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Florence Township is a small town in New Jersey. However, it’ll be represented on the world stage.

Curtis Thompson has been selected to compete in the Tokyo Olympics. Over the next several weeks, members of the town will be cheering on one of their own.

“It means a lot,” he said. “It’s where I grew up and played a lot of my sports. I was able to start throwing javelin freshman year of high school. To have the love and support from this small town that I have means a lot. Even with me going to Mississippi State for school and living in Birmingham, Alabama now, they still support me even though I’m so far away.”

After the announcement, he was involved in the town’s Patriotic Day parade on July 10th. He was driven through the parade by his brother Chris.

“Florence Day is the biggest day in the town,” Thompson said. “It’s always been a big celebration with family and friends. For them to allow me to be a part of it, it’s a great feeling. Driving through and seeing everyone come out for the parade, everyone was happy and showed tremendous support to me. It was an awesome experience.”

Members of the town have purchased signs to show support for Thompson. The town is going to have a send off for him early Thursday morning.

The 2014 Florence graduate was the first New Jersey male athlete to finish 1st in Olympic Trials since 1998. He received the call that he was an Olympian on July 1st.

“After taking care of business in Oregon, I went to Mississippi State for a little bit,” he said. “That’s actually where I got the ball. With the rankings and qualifying, I was in a good position before the end of the qualifying period. Everyone was like, ‘You made it’ and ‘You’re an Olympian,’ but for “me, I was along the lines of I didn’t get the official call. I was in good standing and there was like a 98% chance that I was going to be a part of the team. There was a possibility in the back of my mind that maybe I wouldn’t make it. Then when I received the call, it was a huge relief. Now, I know there’s still work that needs to be done.”

Thompson will be competing on August 3rd at 8 pm in the United States. There will be 32 throwers, who will get three throws in the competition.

Then, if he advances to the final 12, he will compete in the early morning hours on August 7th. The winner will be determined by the longest throw.

Unfortunately for Thompson, his family cannot travel to see him compete in the Olympics.

“Due to Japan being in a State of Emergency, we cannot have any family there with me,” he said. “They probably will not even have fans there. My family will be watching from somewhere else. There’s no extra pressure. I’ve competed in meets with them there or not there. The end goal is to compete and have fun.”

It means the world to Thompson to represent Team USA. He will be one of two javelin throwers for Team USA.

“To be able to represent the USA on the biggest stage possible, it’s a blessing,” Thompson said. “It’s a great opportunity. It’s an honor and a blessing. It hasn’t sunk in yet. It’ll probably sink in once I get over there and execute and throw far.”

This could be one of many Olympic opportunities for Thompson.

“That’s the plan,” he said. “As long as I continue to make the Team USA teams that I have, there’s a good chance that I can compete again at the Olympics.”

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor showed much respect for each other in January. However, in the past several months, something changed.

“It’s straight business,” Poirier said.

McGregor then called Poirier a b*tch. He also smack-talked Poirier’s wife during the press conference.

These two superstars will square off with one another on Saturday night at UFC 264 at the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada. This is the trilogy fight between the two men.

Poirier, passed up a lightweight title shot to pursue the trilogy with McGregor, so the stakes are high for this one and according to SportsBettingDime.com He is the favorite of the fight with odds at -134.

McGregor won the first meeting in 2014 by a first round knockout at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Poirier won in January at Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi by a second round knockout.

In the January event, McGregor had serious problems with Poirier’s leg kicks.

Poirier brings a 27-6-1 record into the fight. McGregor has a 22-5 mark.

The Louisiana native has won his last two fights. In addition to defeating McGregor, he also defeated Dan Hooker by unanimous decision.

“The Diamond” has won 13 fights by knockout. He also has seven wins by submission and seven more by decision.

“Notorious” has won 19 fights by knockout. He also has one submission and two decision wins.

He is 1-3 in his last four fights. This includes his boxing match with Floyd Mayweather in August 2017.

The only win during this stretch is a January 2020 win over Donald Cerrone.

Chiefs’ Frank Clark charged with a felony from his March arrest

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Frank Clark has been charged with a felony. He, along with another man, was arrested on March 13th by California Highway Patrol.

Both men were traveling in a 1993 Toyota Supra that failed to showcase a front license plate. The vehicle was then pulled over.

During the traffic stop, the authorities discovered two weapons in the back seat inside of a bag. Following further inspection, a rifle and a handgun were found in the bag.

Clark has been charged with a felony in the case. It is not known at this time if the second man was charged.

This was the first of two arrests for Clark this off-season. He was also arrested on June 20th.

The pass rusher was pulled over in his Lambo during a routine traffic stop. The authorities found an uzi in the vehicle.

He was also arrested in the June incident. Clark claimed to the authorities that the gun did not belong to him and instead belonged to a member of his security team.

Right now, Clark has not been charged for the June incident.

From the March incident, he could face up to three years in jail. Depending on his criminal history, he could reach a plea agreement if the two sides could agree to one that may lessen his criminal charges.

Clark will have to be in court next week from the March incident.

The 28-year-old has been with the Chiefs since 2019. He was traded to the team from the Seattle Seahawks along with a third-round draft pick.

The Seahawks received a first-round draft pick and a third-round draft pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Kansas City also traded a conditional second-round draft pick to the Seahawks in the package.

Following the trade, Clark agreed to a five-year agreement with the Chiefs. The deal was worth $105.5 million, including $63.5 million in guaranteed money.

Phoenix Suns point guard Chris Paul is all smiles during practice before Game 1 of the NBA Finals against the Milwaukee Bucks

2021 NBA Finals Preview: Suns vs. Bucks

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher 

The Phoenix Suns and the Milwaukee Bucks will play in the 2021 NBA Finals presented by YouTube TV. This is a unique matchup, as it features two small-market teams in the final series of the season. 

The first game of the series is tonight. The series, if necessary, could potentially run through July 22nd.

Both teams will also look to end very long NBA Championship droughts. Combined, the teams have not won a championship in 103 seasons, the most by any two teams in a Finals matchup.

The Suns have never won an NBA Championship in their team history. They joined the league in the 1968 season. 

The Bucks won their lone NBA Championship in 1971. 

Uniquely, both of these teams joined the NBA as expansion teams during the 1968-69 season. Also, the two teams were in a coin toss for the right to draft the top selection in the 1969 NBA Draft.

The Bucks won the coin toss and drafted Lew Alcindor (now known as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar) with the selection. 

For the first time since 1998, there will be no teams from California, Texas, or Florida in the NBA Finals. 

According to SportsBettingDime.com, public bettors are loading up on the Suns, which right now have an odds at -200 to win the Finals.

Phoenix won both games between the teams in the regular season. However, it was a razor-thin margin of victory as both games were decided by one point. 

In February, the Suns won 125-124 in Phoenix. Then, in April, the two teams needed overtime, before the Suns came out with a 128-127 win in Milwaukee. 

The Suns have the lone player with NBA Finals experience. Jae Crowder was a member of the Miami Heat last season that lost to the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA Finals in the NBA Bubble near Orlando, Florida.

Related: Trail Blazers, Stotts agree to part ways after nine seasons

After 16 seasons, Chris Paul is making his first NBA Finals appearance. Paul was acquired in a blockbuster deal with the Oklahoma City Thunder during the off-season. 

Milwaukee may be forced to play without their superstar at least early in the series. Giannis Antetokounmpo is nursing a hyperextended knee that he injured in the Eastern Conference Finals against the Atlanta Hawks. 

For Game 1, Antetokounmpo is listed as a game-time decision. 

Antetokounmpo was averaging 28.2 points per game in the playoffs before being injured. The 28.2 ppg is the 11th-most by a player in the postseason.

Blue Jackets goalie Kivlenieks killed from fireworks incident in Michigan

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Fireworks are a joy to watch. But at the same time, they can be very dangerous.

Columbus Blue Jackets goalie Matiss Kivlenieks was killed on Sunday due to an errant fireworks incident. He was 24.

Kivlenieks — who could have been the team’s future goalie — was injured in an incident in Novi, Michigan late Sunday night. He succumbed to his injuries.

The medical examiner’s preliminary autopsy said that his official cause of death was a mortar blast to the chest. It was previously reported by the authorities that he died after hitting his head on concrete.

Police Lt. Jason Meier said that the fireworks tilted at people in a hot tub and tried to get away from the fireworks, along with other people.

“At the moment, we’re pretty certain this was a tragic accident,” Meier said.

Kivlenieks played in two games with the Blue Jackets this season. He had a 3.40 goals against average and a .901 save percentage.

He also played eight games with the Cleveland Monsters in the American Hockey League.

The Latvia native signed with the Blue Jackets in 2017.

“We are shocked and saddened by the loss of Matiss Kivlenieks, and we extend our deepest sympathies to his mother, Astrida, his family and friends during this devastating time,” said Blue Jackets President of Hockey Operations John Davidson. “Kivi was an outstanding young man who greeted every day and everyone with a smile and the impact he had during his four years with our organization will not be forgotten.”

Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer accused of sexual assault

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

A woman is accusing Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer of sexual assault. The woman has also requested a restraining order against Bauer.

The alleged victim had sex with Bauer twice earlier this year. His agent Jon Fetterol has denied the claims.

“Mr. Bauer had a brief and wholly consensual sexual relationship initiated by [the accuser] beginning in April 2021,” Fetterol said. “We have messages that show [the accuser] repeatedly asking for ‘rough’ sexual encounters involving requests to be ‘choked out’ and slapped in the face. In both of their encounters, [the accuser] drove from San Diego to Mr. Bauer’s residence in Pasadena, Calif. where she went on to dictate what she wanted from him sexually and he did what was asked. Following each of her only two meetings with Mr. Bauer, [the accuser] spent the night and left without incident, continuing to message Mr. Bauer with friendly and flirtatious banter.

In the days following their second and final encounter, [the accuser] shared photos of herself and indicated that she had sought medical care for a concussion. Mr. Bauer responded with concern and confusion, and [the accuser] was neither angry nor accusatory.”

The victim received a temporary restraining order against Bauer in Los Angeles. Pasadena Police Department is investigating the matter.

“Mr. Bauer and [the accuser] have not corresponded in over a month and have not seen each other in over six weeks,” Fetterol added. “Her basis for filing a protection order is nonexistent, fraudulent, and deliberately omits key facts, information, and her relevant communications. Any allegations that the pair’s encounters were not 100% consensual are baseless, defamatory, and will be refuted to the fullest extent of the law.”

Her lawyer expects criminal charges to be filed against Bauer.

“Our goal is to keep Mr. Bauer from contacting our client in any way possible,” lawyer Marc Garelick said. “We anticipate there will be criminal action against Mr. Bauer, and it is our hope law enforcement will take our client’s allegations and case seriously.”

The incident will be sent to a district attorney to determine if there is enough evidence to move forward with a case. MLB may also investigate the matter.

Bauer — who is in his first season with the Dodgers after signing in the off-season— is one of the best pitchers in baseball.
