first_imgWASHINGTON (AP) — Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, who died at the hands of the mob that besieged the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, will lie in honor in the building’s Rotunda. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer released a joint statement Friday saying, ”His sacrifice reminds us every day of our obligation to our country and to the people we serve.” Congress will hold a ceremonial arrival for the 42-year-old Sicknick on Tuesday night, after which a viewing period will be held overnight for members of the Capitol Police. Lawmakers will pay tribute Wednesday morning before a ceremonial departure for Arlington National Cemetery, where Sicknick will be interred.last_img

first_imgWhen Pacers forward T.J. Warren tangled with Heat wing Jimmy Butler earlier this season and Butler laughed Warren off as nowhere on his level, it seemed like there was little Warren would ever be able to do to get revenge on his rival.He flipped off Butler following his ejection in that game, and Butler blew him kisses. Warren averaged 18.7 points per game before the NBA restart. He will face the Suns, who dealt him to the Pacers, next.MORE: How to become a virtual NBA fanWarren’s three-game stretch has certainly caught many NBA fans by surprise:How TJ Warren pulled up to the bubble to finish the season— Dom2K🏀 (@Dom_2k) August 4, 2020Jimmy Butler watching TJ Warren— Joey (@JoeyMulinaro) August 4, 2020TJ Warren leads the bubble in scoring with 119 points in 3 games (39.7 PPG).He’s shooting 65.3 FG% and 60.9 3P%, while also having a bubble-best +59 +/-.The Pacers are 3-0.— StatMuse (@statmuse) August 5, 2020Tj warren the day before the bubble started— 𝐿𝓊𝓃𝒶  (@Lunagrinds) August 5, 2020TJ Warren’s next opponent….. @Suns .

Warren, Phoenix and its cash considerations.— Matt Glenesk (@MattGlenesk) August 5, 2020 Butler is a five-time All-Star; Warren might never be voted into an All-Star Game.”He’s soft,” Butler said afterward. “He’s not even in my … league, nowhere near me. If I was their coach, I would never put him on me ever again.”Now, though, Warren looks like a monster on a mission to put up big numbers, potentially against the Heat in a prospective first-round postseason matchup.He’s scored 119 points in three games in the Orlando bubble on 65.3 percent shooting. On Tuesday, he scored 32 points in a 120-109 win over the Magic.last_img read more
