first_imgEmbed from Getty ImagesReading boss Jaap Stam felt his side should have beaten QPR at Loftus Road.Danny Williams’ first-half goal earned the Royals a deserved point and they created a number of chances in the second half.“I think we should have won it,” Stam said after the 1-1 draw.“If you look at the game and how we played, we should have scored a second goal.“They tried to make it difficult for us by pressing us high up the pitch, but there was still a lot of space for us.“When you give the ball away and then concede a goal it makes it difficult, but we came back well and managed to get an equaliser quickly.“We kept searching for the second goal in the second half but there was always a threat from QPR, who are a strong side and have physical players.“In the second half, though, with the chances we created, and sometimes should have created, we should have scored and that’s the thing we didn’t do well.“We defended well, we attacked well at times, but I think we should have scored in the second half and won the game.” See also:QPR v Reading: as it happenedQPR poor again in draw with ReadingQPR went all out to win – HassebainkQPR to assess Hall injuryQPR v Reading player ratings Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Urologists: Men, Forget the Blue Pill!

Gary Harris was assigned to cover him after White erupted for 36 points the game before.THUNDER AT TRAIL BLAZERS Informed it erupted on social media, Nurse said: “Is that a good thing?”Here’s perhaps a not-so-good thing: Toronto’s history in closing out series. The Raptors are 5-6 when they have a chance to win a playoff series, according to the team.“This team, let’s see if they can start their own history,” Nurse said. “We need to do our best to take care of business.”It certainly was a wild weekend around the league, with Brooklyn GM Sean Marks drawing a one-game suspension — and a fine — for entering the referees’ locker room after a Game 4 loss to Philadelphia on Saturday. In that game, Brooklyn’s Jared Dudley and Philadelphia’s Jimmy Butler were ejected after a scuffle broke out following Joel Embiid’s flagrant foul against Jarrett Allen in the third quarter. The league fined Dudley $25,000 and Butler $15,000.San Antonio guard DeMar DeRozan got hit in the wallet by the league, too, after tossing the basketball in the direction of an official following a called he didn’t like in a Game 4 loss. Asked Monday at practice if there was anything he regrets about the incident besides the $25,000, DeRozan responded: “The 25-grand. I don’t want to just give away that much money.”ADVERTISEMENT Panelo: Duterte ‘angry’ with SEA Games hosting hassles Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

There’s a history of toughness from Orlando in the playoffs — the Magic are 5-4 in their last nine games when facing elimination.
