On-fire Heat win seven straight

first_imgMIAMI (AP): There was only one quarter in which Miami figured out how to slow down Detroit. That was enough for the Heat. Goran Dragic scored 23 points, Wayne Ellington added 19 and the Heat pushed the NBA’s longest current winning streak to seven games by topping the Pistons 116-103. The Heat outscored Detroit 26-12 in the fourth quarter, holding the Pistons to 30 per cent shooting. “Our toughest, most physical, most committed minutes were there at the end,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “That’s what’s good to see.” James Johnson scored 18 and Dion Waiters added 17 for the Heat, who tied a season high with 14 3-pointers. Ellington made three in a span of less than two minutes of the fourth quarter as Miami pulled away. Miami was 11-30 at the midway point of their season – and hasn’t lost since. Only Golden State, San Antonio and Houston have put together longer winning streaks this season than the Heat’s run of late. “We are clicking on all cylinders,” Waiters said. “We’re playing together, having fun, and guys are making plays. We’re just playing the right way. We’re healthy and it’s fun.” Reggie Jackson scored 24 for Detroit, which got 17 points and 20 rebounds from Andre Drummond. Tobias Harris added 16 points and Marcus Morris scored 14. TERRIBLE DOWN THE STRETCH “Down the stretch we were terrible. Terrible,” Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said. “We didn’t make plays. We’ve got to find better stuff down the stretch. … I don’t know if defences have us figured out or what, but we’re just not making plays.” Ellington’s first in that late trio of 3s came with 4:38 left, giving the Heat a nine-point lead. He struck again about a minute later, and the last of those with 2:55 remaining put Miami up 114-101. Miami won despite getting outscored 62-40 in the paint. The Heat more than made up for that by outscoring Detroit 42-12 from 3-point range, and somehow looker fresher down the stretch – even though Miami was on a back-to-back and Detroit had not played since last Monday. The Heat will host Brooklyn tonight, the Nets’ only trip to Miami this season. The Heat won in Brooklyn on Wednesday.last_img read more

CBL Denies Pumping L$8bn into the Economy

first_imgThe Central Bank of Liberia (CBL) has described as a misunderstanding of the facts, recent media reports suggesting that the CBL pumped L$8 billion into the economy in 2013.According to the CBL, the assertion, which  is suggested to have been made by Finance Minister Amara Mohammed Konneh, is not only wrong, but also shows the lack of understanding of the movements in the monetary aggregates and their interpretation.According to the CBL, monetary aggregates change over time, reflecting developments in an economy.“As an economy expands, as reflected in the growth of gross domestic product (GDP), money supply will expand to facilitate economic transaction, which does not necessarily mean pumping of excess Liberian dollars into the economy,” the CBL said. Facing the House of Representatives’ inquest on the economy including the continued depreciation of the Liberian dollar to the US dollar earlier this week, Finance Minister Amara M. Konneh intoned that there was more Liberian dollars on the market than expected. The Minister wondered how the exchange would decline when the CBL has pumped L$8 billion into the economy.Ministry of Finance officials denied last night that Minister Konneh ever made said statement. A senior Finance Ministry official anonymously clarified that the Minister was rather quoting a CBL report that about L$8.5 billion is already in circulation.But the CBL explained that the currency in circulation at a point in time is a stock arising from accumulation of changes over several years.For example, the Bank explained that Liberian dollars in circulation at end-December, 2006 was L$2.81 billion and at end-November, 2013 was L$8.6 billion. “So, the first point to be made is that the CBL did not pump L$8.0 billion into the economy in 2013. We must be emphatic about this,” the Bank noted.The CBL noted that monetary policy in 2013 was not expansionary, evidenced by the issuance of CBL T-bills during the last half of 2013 and up to January of 2014.“The CBL bill is a new policy instrument introduced by the Bank to help control Liberian-dollar liquidity; that is, the amount of Liberian dollars in circulation. The issuance of these bills took L$2.7 billion out of circulation. This action is opposite to pumping of Liberian dollars into the economy,” the Bank stated.The CBL argued that the sale of US dollars by the Central Bank through its auction program in 2013 also helped to reduce Liberian dollars in the market. “In other words,” the CBL added “the sale of US$72 million to the foreign exchange market mopped-up the equivalent amount of L$5.9 billion using the average exchange rate of L$81.8/US$1 at end-December 2013.”The CBL reiterated to the public that its ongoing microfinance initiative with non-banked financial institutions shouldn’t be misconstrued. The CBL insisted that its stimulus initiatives for the most part were done in US dollars.The Bank disclosed that the amount of US$22 million was deposited with local banks. The loans made by banks would, accordingly, have been made in US dollars. “It is the microfinance initiative that was totally done in Liberian dollars.The Board of the CBL approved L$400 million for this purpose. It should be known that the funds under the microfinance initiative are already part of the L$8.6 billion stock of Liberian dollars referred to above,” said the Bank.The CBL explained that the entire amount has not yet been disbursed. “Only around L$300 million has been placed with various non-bank financial institutions in all 15 counties.” The Bank insisted that it is difficult to see how those who continue to misinform the public came to the conclusion that L$300 to L$400 million would be a source of macroeconomic instability in an economy the size of Liberia’s economy.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
