 In a hotly-contested final against Dlamini Dlamini, Jean-Marc Johannes, Braxton Haines and Yann Horowitz on the smooth, polished concrete surfaces at Moses Mabhida Stadium’s People’s Park, Cape Town resident Moses Adams impressed the judges to win the first ever Red Bull Unlocked.

Adams proved throughout the competition that he was hungry for the win by landing some of the most insane tricks of the day. He fought off the competition with his sensational final run which included a varial heel flip, a nollie flip and a frontside flip.

 We never get to skate at somewhere like this. The surface is so nice to skate on – no cracks or rocks and just so smooth,” remarked Adams. “I felt really comfortable today and just worked on getting to the finals. Dlamini was really skating well and I’m just glad I did my best and was able to win. “

 The one-day skateboarding event, unique in the fact that it gives participants access to an area where their sport would be ordinarily be prohibited, was judged by some of the most esteemed skaters in the community – Andrew Morck, Ken-Rae James and Editor at Session Skateboarding Magazine, Brendan Body,

 Asked about the level of talent at the competition, Brendan Body commented: “The level of talent was super high and one of the highest I’ve seen in competition in a long time. With the event taking place at a street spot with the stairs and the inclusion of the hub and rail we saw some of best street skaters in a setup that worked for them and their skills.”

It was really close between Dlamini and Moses in the final. Moses was consistent and super smooth throughout – he clinched it with his last two runs where he pulled out tricks Dlamini didn’t have.”

    靠着强大的阵容深度,勇士在关键时刻摆脱灰狼的纠缠。 美联社在伤兵陆续归队后,灰狼的状态逐渐上轨道,过去4场比赛拿下3胜,而今天面对西区第一的勇士,灰狼展现韧性一路紧咬比分,双方杀到最后一分半钟还是平手,汤普森(Klay Thompson)命中关键三分球,派克维奇(Nikola Pekovic)读秒阶段未能把握逆转机会,最终勇士就在惊涛骇浪中以94比91险胜。勇士在明星赛前拿到本季第42胜,胜率达到82.4%,高居联盟第一,这是勇士队史第三次在明星赛前拿到联盟第一的成绩。「不可思议的纪录!」总教练柯尔(Steve Kerr)说,「我为球员们感到骄傲。我从来没有看过任何一支球队比现在的勇士更需要全明星週末的休息,现在我们很疲累,我们得不到很好的投篮机会,球的转移也不是很好,我们需要休息。」首节只领先3分的勇士,第二节靠着强大的板凳深度逐间把比分拉开,半场结束取得10分领先;第三节灰狼不断积极拼抢篮板,打出12比5的攻势,比分一下子缩小到仅有3分,勇士重整旗鼓又回敬9比0的攻势,比数再度回到两位数。勇士随后陷入进攻乾旱期,长达4分多钟时间只得到2分,灰狼趁机将分数追到67比73。第四节之初,勇士板凳部队再度出击,一波12比4的猛攻,将比分拉大到14分差,但灰狼在鲁比欧(Ricky Rubio)连拿7分的带动下,又把分数追到83比85。接下来双方互有攻势,柯瑞(Stephen Curry)和汤普森连续命中两记外线,派克维奇则是连罚带投拿下6分,可惜最后7.9秒在禁区的钩射未能命中,灰狼的逆袭也功亏一篑。「我们原本是有机会赢球,但我们得从这样的比赛中记取教训,比赛是要打48分钟的。」鲁比欧说。柯瑞攻下25分5篮板8助攻,汤普森14分2篮板,格林(Draymond Green)只得到3分却有13篮板5助攻进帐,巴恩斯(Harrison Barnes)8分7篮板,伯加特(Andrew Bogut)10分10篮板,史培特斯(Marreese Speights)8分5篮板,伊古达拉(Andre Iguodala)8分4助攻。勇士替补群联手拿下34分,力压灰狼的14分,在勇士主要拉开比分的时段,替补球员可说是扮演相当重要的角色。鲁比欧得到18分9篮板5助攻,派克维奇17分13篮板,马丁(Kevin Martin)21分5篮板,杨恩(Thaddeus Young)15分7篮板,维金斯(Andrew Wiggins)6分4助攻。
