The Plunket Shield match between Wellington and Central Districts in Wellington has been abandoned after frequent aftershocks, in the wake of an earthquake on late Sunday night, left players sleep-deprived and anxious, New Zealand Cricket said.The match, originally scheduled to start on Monday, was delayed so that the venue - Basin Reserve - could be checked for structural damage caused by the earthquake. The stadium was assessed as safe by structural engineers and the match was given a go-ahead by local authorities, but NZC decided against it. The city has also seen heavy downpours since the quake.Although the Basin Reserve has been assessed as safe by structural engineers, and the match has been given the go-ahead by local authorities, New Zealand Cricket has decided proceeding with the game would be unfair on the players involved, the board said.Central Districts coach Heinrich Malan said NZC had taken the right decision. Its been two long days to be fair, Malan told stuff.co.nz. Its not ideal when people are not able to sleep and things like that. At this stage its about looking after the welfare and health of the players.NZC will look at options for re-playing the game over the next week.The board also said that the first Test between New Zealand and Pakistan, set to begin from Thursday at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch, and the ODI between the two countries womens teams, to be played on the same day at the Saxton Oval in Nelson, are expected to go ahead as planned.The Pakistan womens team was in Christchurch while their mens team was in Nelson when the earthquake - measured at 7.5 on the Richter scale - occurred on Sunday night. Both teams were safe. Nike Air Vapormax Flyknit Skroutz . Still, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke thought taking him out before the fifth inning was an unusual move.

One game after a miserable showing in Oklahoma City, Gay tied a career high with 41 points and the Sacramento Kings cruised to a 114-97 victory at the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. MIAMI -- The Miami Heat, stuck in their first six-game losing streak since 2008, are desperate for a win.The Heat (2-8) plays host on Thursday night to the Milwaukee Bucks (5-5), who will be the less-rested team after losing to the Atlanta Hawks, 107-100, on Wednesday night.But despite the Heats slow start, team president Pat Riley said he is not discouraged.We love what we have in our young players, Riley told the media on Wednesday. Our young players ... theyll get it, but it doesnt happen overnight.The under-24 young players Riley and Heat coach Erik Spoelstra are most relying on include 20-year-old 6-7 small forward Justise Winslow out of Duke and 23-year-old 6-6 shooting guard Josh Richardson from Tennessee. Both are second-year players.However, injuries have slowed or are now slowing their development.Richardson started the season on the injured list and missed the first four games. And after making a team-best 46.1 percent of his 3-pointers last season, he has been accurate on just 28.6 percent so far this season.Winslow is expected to miss his second straight game on Thursday after suffering an injury to his left wrist. His loss is crucial because he leads the team in minutes played and is averaging 11.6 points and 4.7 rebounds.The problem with Winslow is the same one he entered the NBA with -- his shooting accuracy. In fact, his problem has gotten even worse, which has negated, in some respect, all the good things he does on the defensive end and in his all-around game.Winslow shot 42.2 percent from the floor last season, and that has slipped, alarmingly so, to 33.1 percent this season. His 3-point marksmanship has decreased from 27.6 last season to 21.4 percent so far this season.Clearly, the Heat needs more from their 2015 draft class, and they also need veteran point guard Goran Dragic (left ankle) to return from injury. Dragic is averaging 16.3 points and a team-high 5.9 assists.Unfortunately for the Heat, it does not appear they will have either Winslow or Dragic in Thursdays lineup to face the Bucks.And thats a problem because the Bucks have a talented lineup that belies the 33 wins they managed last year. TThe Bucks and their length have given the Heat trouble in the past, even when Miami had its great run with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.ddddddddddddThat Big Three is long gone from Miami. But in Milwaukee, the Bucks appear to be ascending with players such as Jabari Parker, who is only 21; and Giannis Antetokounmpo, who is 22.Parker, a 6-8, 250-pounder, is averaging 19.1 points and 6.2 rebounds. Parker has been more assertive offensively, and thats why he has increased his scoring average from the 14.1 last season.Jabari is going to be a perennial All-Star, Heat assistant coach Juwan Howard said prior to this season.Antetokounmpo, nicknamed the Greek Freak, is already a star. He leads the team in scoring (21.3), rebounds (8.2), blocks (2.1) and steals (2.0). He is also averaging 5.3 assists, which is second on the team behind Matthew Dellavedova (5.9).The Freak is so talented that the Bucks often use the 6-11, 225-pounder as a point guard on offense.And Antetokounmpo is so good that President Barack Obama even mentioned him this week while visiting Greece.We are all cheering, Obama said, for Giannis Antetokounmpo, who seems to be getting better every year.The Bucks certainly agree with that sentiment. Antetokounmpo had five triple-doubles last season, which ranked fourth in the NBA.Bucks coach Jason Kidd said Parker and Antetokounmpo are vault players in that they will not be traded.You dont even start a conversation about Giannis or Jabari, Kidd has said. They are untradeable.The Bucks have surrounded their core two with players such as center Greg Monroe, who had 32 double-doubles last season; and 6-4 guard Dellavedova, a high-effort difference-maker on the court.Milwaukee, a dreadful perimeter-shooting team last season, has also improved in that regard. Free-agent newcomer Mirza Teletovic and 2015 first-round pick Rashad Vaughn are the main reason for that improvement.Add it all up, and the Heats long losing streak may continue, especially if Dragic and Winslow are unable to play.
