Chinese businesses in faraway Namibia feel virus fear

Namibia should by rights feel little concern about the coronavirus outbreak given that the sparsely-populated desert country is 12,000 kilometres from China and without a single confirmed case. A notice in Chinese and English taped to an aluminium shutter on a Chinese-owned shop in Windhoek's Chinatown spells it out: Any merchant returning to Namibia from China "must be quarantined for 14 days and keep the shop closed for that period", state the typed instructions signed by the Chinatown manage...

Aaron Gordon dunks over 7-5 Tacko Fall, somehow still robbed of Dunk Contest win

Aaron Gordon cannot catch a break in an All-Star Dunk Contest dunk-off. In the best Dunk Contest since 2016 — when Gordon controversially lost in a dunk-off to Zach LaVine — Gordon lost another dunk-off, this time despite dunking over 7'5″ Tacko Fall for the final dunk of the night. “Jumping over somebody 7'5″ [note: without shoes] and dunking is no easy feat,” Gordon said, stating the obvious.

Seguin scores insane OT winner, Stars complete 4-goal comeback against Canadiens

Dallas Stars forward Tyler Seguin is the latest player to cause misery for the Montreal Canadiens this season. When Montreal's Nick Cousins scored his ninth goal of the season in the middle of the second period to give his team a 3-0 lead, the game seemed like a probable win over Dallas. But with the Stars scoring two goals to wrap up the second frame and cut the deficit to one, doubt started seeping into the minds of fans wearing the bleu, blanc et rouge.
