Press Association Aidan O’Brien believes Adelaide is the right type of horse for Saturday’s Cox Plate at Moonee Valley. O’Brien has not had any runners in Australia since a rather controversial Melbourne Cup in 2008, when his three representatives were well down the field and the stewards called him back to the racecourse after he had already left. Since then the Ballydoyle handler has been looking for what he believes is the perfect specimen with which to tackle Australia’s major races. He told www.theage.com.au: “The horses that you have, play your hand. “Every year you don’t have the same horses – (a Cox Plate runner) needs to have the right profile. “It is hard to get a horse that we think could fit the right profile. “Tom (Magnier, of Coolmore Australia) saw this horse at an early stage and he just thought he could be a horse to do that. “Tom has been big influence. It is one your biggest races. Obviously we have always been aware of it and I have been guided by Tom and what he thought. “It is a long way to go and you have to have a horse that you believe could be very competitive. This horse has continued to develop.” Adelaide won the Secretariat Stakes at Arlington before finishing third to Ectot in the Prix Niel at Longchamp last time out. “The mile-and-a-quarter on a tight track didn’t seemed to be a problem for him (at Arlington). The only thing about him is when he goes he is a little bit idle. We might not want to get there (to the front) too early with him, but I suppose on a tight track that is not an easy thing to do,” said O’Brien.
“Jamal is just good,” said Rivers, whose team plays host to the Toronto Raptors (22-7) at 12:30 p.m. Saturday (on Prime Ticket). “He’s a professional scorer. What I love about him … he can miss five in a row and it doesn’t faze him. He knows what he can do. Once he gets one to go in, the rim seems to open up for him and get bigger.“We needed every point he had.”Crawford shot 8 of 18 (44.4 percent) from the field, 4 of 10 (40 percent) from 3-point range. He came in having made just 16 of his previous 50 shots for 32 percent, 6 of 20 from 3-point range for 30 percent).Crawford is of the mind this was indeed a huge victory.“It definitely is, it really is,” Crawford said. “There are games during the course of the season where no matter what you say, it means a little bit more. Obviously, the whole country — the whole world — was watching this game. They’re (the Warriors) playing as good as anybody in the NBA. Golden State walloped the Clippers by 17 points on Nov. 5 in Oakland. It was an embarrassing loss for the Clippers, who trailed by 27 points after three quarters.That’s why the 100-86 victory for the Clippers in the Christmas night rematch at Staples Center was huge for Los Angeles.Clippers coach Doc Rivers said the victory didn’t necessarily build confidence because his team was already confident. But the Clippers had to be wondering just how good they were heading into the game, not just because of what happened in early November, but because they were just 4-7 against teams with winning records.The Clippers (20-10), who had lost three of their previous four games and five of eight, can give a lot of thanks to sixth-man Jamal Crawford. He scored a game-high 24 points, getting 12 of those points during a fourth quarter when the Clippers worked hard to seal the deal. He made one clutch shot after another and even had two assists in the fourth.

He’s averaging 16.4 points.Warriors suddenly strugglingGolden State (23-5) recently won 16 consecutive games and entered play Christmas night having won 18 of 20. Including their surprising loss Tuesday to the Lakers, they have now lost two games in succession.“Very poor execution,” said first-year coach Steve Kerr, whose team still owns the league’s best record. “We had a chance to be up 15 at halftime. Some of it was just strange, simple plays. We missed a couple of dunks, missed a couple of open shots. Some of it was … we’re out of whack right now offensively. We’re not in the same groove we’ve been in. The ball is not moving.”Perhaps guard Steph Curry said it best.“We’re not invincible,” he said.Scouting the RaptorsToronto enters Saturday’s game against the Clippers atop the Eastern Conference. The Raptors are being led by point guard Kyle Lowry in scoring (20.0), assists (7.7) and steals (1.4).

For the first time this month, a Freemasons lodge in Australia is set to hold an event honouring a different community.The Gregorios Lodge is set to host commemorations for Oxi Day, marking 78 years since General Metaxas said ‘Oxi’ to Mussolini’s ultimatum to enter Greece in 1940.Taking place on Tuesday 30 October, two days after the official day, the event will take place at their Masonic Centre in Oakleigh.The decision to do so, is a chance to maintain contact with the important historical events of the past and an attempt to bring younger generations of Freemasons closer to their roots.“It’s basically the first time we’ve had an officially approved ceremony to commemorate anything but ANZAC within freemasonry in Victoria, so it’s a bit of a first for our craft and first for our lodge, and being a Greek lodge we thought it would be nice to do,” Master of the Lodge, Jim Karabatsos told Neos Kosmos.He went on to point out how there are elements of freemasonry within Greece’s modern history.“A lot of Greek history in the recent times, and by recent I mean from the time of the Turkish invasion onward, has been shaped by Masonic ideals. So while it wasn’t clearly Masonic, a lot of the behind-the-scenes organisation and support were certainly put together by people who were aware of and connected to freemasonry,” he said.“For example, the Filiki Eteria. Definitely not a lodge, but the people who structured it did so along the Masonic lines. Things like understanding how to organise and keep things under control or having support from overseas and so on.” Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram
