And he knew we needed him badly, and he just took over the game in the first half and set a great tone.” NBA playoffs wrap 2019: Kevin Durant scores 50 to power Warriors to series win over Clippers Kerr was full of praise for Durant, who scored 38 points in the first half to set up a semifinal series against the Rockets.”It was one of the great performances I’ve ever seen in my life,” Kerr said. “I’ve seen some good ones, been around some decent players.

AdvertisementA testament to the tag, Croatia have truly justified their dark horse tag topping a group that contained the likes of Nigeria, Iceland and Argentina. Having won all their group matches, Croatia look like firm favorites to progress to the next stage. The Scandinavian nation will look to better their history of performance in the tournament by beating the odds to win against this strong Croatian side.The goal scoring prowess of these two sides has been quite contrasting. The Vatreni are the fourth highest goal scoring team coming out of the group stage while the Danes have scored the lowest number of goals of all teams in the round of 16. Similar to the goal record, the road to the knockout phases have also been explicitly different. Croatia rampaged their way to the round of 16 winning all the 3 group matches as the Danish nation beat Peru and drew against Australia and France.Croatia’s key to their success has been the midfield pairing of Ivan Rakitic and Luka Modric. Denmark, on the other hand will look up-to their star attacker Christian Eriksen who has been the Dane’s chief attacking player. He has been directly involved in both of Denmark’s world cup goals scoring one and assisting one. Interestingly he also covered 36 kilometres in the group stage matches, more than any other player in the competition.Watch the match on Sony ten 2 & 3 and Sony Ten HD.line ups :Ok now, deep breath everyone, as we’re not done yet 😓#RUS are into the quarter-finals.
