BEIJING， Sept. 27 (Xinhua) -- Houston Rockets head coach Mike D'Antoni emphasized on the importance of not hurrying up for quick pace through a telephone interview here on Tuesday.
""We want to play quick， but we don't want to hurry. We want to make sure that things are done right at the quick pace，"" said D'Antoni， who steered the Phoenix Suns into the Western Conference finals with Steve Nash and Amare Stoudemire in 2004-05 and 2005-06.
""It's a little difference for people to think that quick pace is running all the time. We've got to keep the ball movement. We have James Harden， one of the best players in the league without doubt， but we also have many underrated players. We are excited about who we have. We just have to come together as a team， learn each other， add new pieces， and use our uptempo， high scoring and good defense as a team.
""We all know that a coach with great defense will win the champion， but you can't win at 0-0. You've got to score， and stop the other team， so we have to do the both，"" he added.
It's reported that D'Antoni will put the team's namecard Harden on PG position， while D'Antoni talked more about how to show Harden's best efficiency.
""We will play like the Golden State Warriors， with Draymond Green as the point guard for most time. Basketball has changed， and we want to make sure that everybody has his role to play， shoot or pass. Everybody will have multiple positions. James will play as the point guard， or off the ball. We just try to get him in the position where he is the most effective，"" commented D'Antoni.
The Rockets will play two China Games with the New Orleans Pelicans in Shanghai and Beijing on October 9 and 12 respectively. D'Antoni and other Rockets guys have a chance of meeting Chinese big guy Yao Ming， who was a former Rockets player and a Hall of Famer.
""Yao means a lot to the Houston organization and the Houston city. Congratulations on him for the Hall of Fame. It's a great honor，"" said D'Antoni.
The team added two excellent shooters， Ryan Andersen and Eric Gordon， from their China Games opponent Pelicans in the offseason， while losing rim protector Dwight Howard to the Atlanta Hawks.
D'Antoni took two finalists last season as the favorite for the NBA championship， also showing much confidence in his team.
""Golden State on paper is the best as they have Kevin Durant. Cleveland is the defending champion. We will see. During a long season， many things can happen. We have a bunch of great players， so why not?"" he said.
KABUL, Dec. 1 (Xinhua) -- Casualties were feared as a blast ripped through northern neighborhood of Afghanistan's capital Kabul on Friday, a witness said.
"The bomb blast occurred roughly at 06:55 a.m. (local time) in Sarah-e-Shamali locality with a big bang, causing panic among the residents in Police District 11 of the city#1#" Roya Khojazada told Xinhua.
The blast was followed by siren of ambulances and police vehicles. People in the area were sleeping as they were enjoying Friday's day off.
Friday is national holiday in Afghanistan.
"A bomb attack struck a police vehicle near Sarah-e-Shamali Square. We still cannot provide details on causalities. There is fear of possible causalities," a security source told Xinhua anonymously, adding more information will be shared with media later by Kabul police.
Police were investigating the incident.
Security forces have cordoned off the area for precautionary measures#2# he said.
Gennaro Gattuso's debut as AC Milan coach ended in nightmarish fashion when goalkeeper Alberto Brignoli equalized in the fifth minute of stoppage time to earn Benevento Calcio its first ever point in the top division with an improbable 2-2 draw on Sunday.
Ten-man Milan was protecting a lead when Brignoli came forward for the final play of the match at Stadio Ciro Vigorito in Benevento and scored with a long, leaping header following a free kick.
"It's difficult to describe," said Brignoli#3# who is on loan from Juventus. "I was thinking, 'It's 2-1, the 95th minute#4# we have nothing to lose.' I went up there, closed my eyes and jumped."
The last goalkeeper to score in Serie A was Massimo Taibi back in 2001 with Reggina.
Benevento had lost all 14 of its matches for the worst start to a season in modern history among Europe's five major leagues. If Benevento had lost again, the southern club would have matched Brescia in 1994-95 for the longest losing streak in Italian league history.
"It would have been terrible to lose this#5# as we've lost so many at the last second that we really didn't deserve to," Brignoli said. "Today we got some of that (luck) back. We've shown that we can play against anyone and just need the incidents to go our way."
Gattuso, a former stalwart in midfield for Milan#6# was hired to replace the fired Vincenzo Montella on Monday.
"It hurts. A knife wound would have been better than this goal," Gattuso said. "We're Milan and we need to be better, because this isn't enough."
Milan opened strongly and Giacomo Bonaventura scored one goal — his first since January — and set up another for Nikola Kalinic after George Puscas' temporary equalizer for Benevento.
But Milan defender Alessio Romagnoli was sent off in the 75th after picking up his second yellow card for tripping an opponent.
Milan dropped to eighth with 21 points#7# after Fiorentina won 3-0 at home to Sassuolo and rose to seventh on goal difference.
Inter Milan later took the Serie A lead with a 5-0 win over Chievo Verona at the San Siro. Inter has 39 points after 15 matches, one more than Napoli and two more than Juventus. (Agencies)
