As the Giants continue to make changes to their front office with the latest coming after the hiring of general manager Dave Gettleman, one question remaining is what the future of Eli Manning will look like under new management.
The question comes after a controversial decision from former coach Ben McAdoo to bench Manning before a Week 13 game against the Raiders, and as expected, it was one of the first things asked Friday in Gettleman’s introductory press conference as general manager. Gettleman said he intends to keep Manning as the starter as of now, but he needs to watch film.
The bottom line is, I’m an inveterate film watcher, Gettleman said. It’s what I do. I haven’t had access to tape, and I’m not avoiding the question, but obviously we have to look at the film, see what’s cooking.
Third quarter, it was a quick look to him and I literally said `no way, no way, the two-time MVP said. … It felt like the first day of school again, for real.
Curry made a sensational return from injury by scoring 38 points with a season-high 10 3-pointers, and the Golden State Warriors beat the Memphis Grizzlies 141-128 on Saturday night with an energy and spirit that had been missing much of this month without him.
Curry shot 13 for 17 and 10 of 13 from deep in just shy of 26 minutes for his ninth 30-point game this season after missing 11 games with a sprained right ankle. His mere presence brought an energy to the Warriors and all of Oracle Arena, and he spent much of the fourth quarter pacing, gesturing in delight while cheering his teammates with a towel draped over his head.
Kevin Durant added 20 points, nine assists and five rebounds, and Klay Thompson scored 21 points as the Warriors wrapped up nearly three weeks at home in California. Zaza Pachulia scored a season-best 17 points and also had eight rebounds and six assists.
It wasn’t just him, Grizzlies interim coach J.B. Bickerstaff said of Curry. You look up and they’ve got guys that can make shots all over the floor. They were making shots that were contested.
