Arians, Kingsbury Land NFL Jobs, Carter Gets Standing O, Klay Hits 43 Points

Grace Higgins | January 9th, 2019

It had been an interesting day prior to Tuesday with so much going on, but perhaps the biggest, or at least most surprising, story of the day would end up belonging to Kliff Kingsbury, who had landed the role of head coach of the Arizona Cardinals. The controversial move has been criticized by many due to the age of Kingsbury, who is just 39, but also because of the way his last job ended. Kingsbury, an alumni of Texas Tech and one of their best players ever having featured in the NFL in the past, was let go by the Red Raiders after a mediocre record. He does, however, have a good track record of working with young quarterbacks, including Pat Mahomes, and the Cardinals will be hoping he can replicate that sort of success. Will this move be similar to the Rams bringing in Sean McVay? Elsewhere, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers named Bruce Arians as their new head coach. Having previously retired from the Cardinals, it means that they will get the Buccaneers’ sixth round pick in exchange for their seventh round pick. Arians has worked with Jameis Winston in the past, and he’ll be looking to use that experience in his new role to get the best out of him.

Raptors Republic

In the NBA, it’s not often that the Atlanta Hawks get a mention, but they deserve one here. And not just for the fact that while playing Toronto that Vince Carter got a massive reception. Playing against the Raptors in his former home of so many years for what could possibly be the final time, Carter checked in and was lauded with cheers from all sides of the court. The aging veteran then proceeded to score six points in 13 minutes. However, the Hawks managed to stay in the game against the league-leading Raptors. And in the fourth quarter, a particularly tight one in which neither side ever led by more than five points, they had a chance to win it. But that was foiled as Serge Ibaka dunked to give the Raptors the lead, then they drew Trey Young into a match up with Kawhi Leonard that saw him stopped. The Raptors held on at the buzzer as Carter launched a hopeful three to tie to win 104-101. Leonard had 31 points on the night, making it 17 games running with 20+. It was also the first time he’d played with Kyle Lowry in nearly a month.

Also in the association on Tuesday night, Klay Thompson was setting the building on fire with shooting from deep. About a week after snapping out of his personal funk, Klay hit for 43 points at home to help the Golden State Warriors end its home losing streak against the typically helpless New York Knicks by a score of 122-95. It was all but over at half time, but by the third quarter’s end, it was locked up with the Warriors in the lead big time. Now that they have ended their three-game losing streak at home, they are getting ready to get even better. Boogie Cousins is said to be nearing a return to action and could debut as early as late next week. If he takes off, look out. The old Warriors could be back in the blink of an eye.
