Kyrie Ir ving gritted his teeth,
tightened up his left sneaker and
hopped to his feet.
The pain could not stop him. The
Celtics could not either.
Irving took over in the second half
and finished with 42 points despite
playing on a tender ankle, Le Bron
James added 34 and the Cleveland
Cavaliers moved within one win of
an almost inevitable third date in
the NBA finals in beating Boston
112-99 game four of the Eastern

was forced to do more than ever

The defending NBA champions,
who shot 71% in the second half,
opened a 3-1 lead in the series and
can wrap up their third straight
conference title — and a “three-
match” against the Warriors
— with a win in game 5 tomorrow
But if games three and four are
any indication, it will not be easy.
Fighting to keep their season
alive, the Celtics are not giving an
inch despite playing without All-
Star guard Isaiah Thomas.
The Cavs, meanwhile, would
not be on the cusp of the Finals
without Ir ving. With Cleveland
in jeopardy of dropping its second
game in a row after James followed
an 11-point game three debacle
by picking up four first-half fouls,
Irving put on a breathtaking one-
Freezing Boston defenders with
his dribble and driving to the basket
whenever he wanted, Irving made
six layups, two 3-pointers and a free
throw in a dizzying span of 4:48.
He capped his blistering 19-point
outburst with a 3 in the final second
of the quarter and celebrated at
mid-court by pretending to put two
pistols back in his holster.
“He saw Bron went out and he
wanted to put the team on his
shoulders,” Cavs coach Tyronn Lue
said. “ He did that.”
Irving said he was driven by the
thought of the Cavs seeing their
series lead vanish.
“In the back of my mind, I
thought, ‘They can’t tie up the
series’,’’ he said.
“ We can’t go back to Boston

Barbarians in 2013 and was a trialist for

Bevan’s club coach and mentor, Tonga
Taumoefolau, who had been at his side

be remembered as a family man, with a
strong family connection, who embraced
being the best father, brother and son.
“ Bevan was an active rugby player
with Marlborough Boys College 1st
XV, Waitohi and various representative
teams, he had unique abilities as a
scrummager and had the physique to be
a star on the rugby field.
“ His team embraced him as a team-
mate who was hard-working on the
playing field; a committed and loyal
team player. He just loved playing rugby.
Bevan was called ‘Bear’ for his imposing
physique, and was a much-loved team-
mate at every level he played.”
Tasman Rugby chief executive Tony
Lewis said Moody’s death was a shock
for everyone involved.
“The thoughts of everyone in the
Tasman rugby community are with
Bevan’s partner and family. This is a
devastating time and our support and
prayers are with them,” Lewis said.
“This is a massive shock to all of us.
We are a tight-knit community and the
death of someone so young has hit hard
in his club and across Tasman rugby.

Security around the Indianapolis 500
will be beefed up this weekend following
Monday ’s suicide bomb attack in
Manchester, England, speedway officials
Securing the sprawling 4km oval
for a race that attracts over 300,000
spectators is always a massive challenge
but Tuesday ’s attack, which killed 22
people, and the potential presence of
US vice-president Mike Pence will
make protecting the 101st Indy 500 on
Monday even more problematic. Further
complicating the situation is the threat
of severe weather that could force the
evacuation of the Speedway on Monday
and concerts planned on Saturday and
Sunday featuring Keith Urban and
the Steve Miller Band, each attracting
larger crowds than the one that filled
Manchester Arena, the site of Tuesday ’s
bombing, for an Ariana Grande pop
“One thing fans may notice this year,
there will be an increased presence of
armed law enforcement folks wandering
through the grounds,” Indianapolis
Motor Speedway (IMS) president Doug
“ We are talking on a regular basis
throughout the day to local, state and
federal authorities to make sure there
are not threats and at this point there
is nothing we are aware of from the
Speedway standpoint.” — Reuters
