Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant heard the cheers on Tuesday in Philadelphia but it was the 76ers who gave the home fans a real reason to roar.

Robert Covington scored 23 points as the Sixers beat the Lakers 103-91 to win for the first time in 19 games this season Ander Herrera Jersey , and the first time in 29 games dating back to last season.

The victory came on the same night Bryant began his farewell tour in his hometown. The 37-year-old announced Sunday that this season, his 20th, would be his last.

Sixers coach Brett Brown said it was "a true privilege" to be on hand for such an occasion, but he was focused more on his team and its victory.

Another loss would have meant that the Sixers had the worst start in NBA history. As it is, they share that record with the 2009-10 New Jersey Nets.

Philadelphia also ended a 28-game losing streak Diogo Dalot Jersey , the longest in the history of the four major North American team sports.

"I'm pleased for the city," Brown said. "We don't want the streak continuing ... Obviously, this is a relief on many levels."

Jerami Grant contributed 14 points, -seven rebounds, four assists and four blocked shots for Philadelphia Ashley Young Jersey , whose previous win came on March 25 at Denver. Nerlens Noel also scored 14 and added nine rebounds.

Bryant scored 20 to lead the Lakers, who at 2-15 are the NBA's -second-worst team. They have dropped seven in a row and 11 of 12. Jordan Clarkson added 19 points.

Bryant made three of his first four shots - all of them three--pointers - but finished seven-for-26 from the floor.

"God knows I can't sustain that level of energy for 48 minutes like I used to," Bryant said.

He was accorded a standing ovation when he took the court for warm-ups and again when he was introduced. The Sixers also gave him a video tribute, and retired star Julius Erving joined Gregg -Downer, Bryant's coach at Lower Merion High School Fred Jersey , in presenting him with a framed jersey from his prep years.

"I'm not the most emotional person," Bryant said. "I try not to be. But that got to me."

GENEVA, May 6 (Xinhua) -- "The Belt and Road Initiative will strengthen well-being and contribute to poverty reduction in concerned regions. It will improve 'connectivity' between Europe and Asia, and help develop trade and the exchange of people," Swiss president Doris Leuthard told Xinhua in a recent interview.

Leuthard is among the heads of state and government leaders who accepted China's invitation to attend the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation slated for May 14 and 15 in Beijing.

The trip to China reflects Switzerland's support for the Belt and Road Initiative. It also highlights the very positive relations prevailing between Switzerland and China Marcos Rojo Jersey , she said.

Leuthard noted that Switzerland was among the first non-Asian countries to become a member of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), whose mandate involves, amongst other things, financing infrastructure projects along the Belt and Road.

The improvement of transportation and communication links between Europe and Asia is also important for Switzerland, she said.

According to Leuthard Andreas Pereira Jersey , the Belt and Road Initiative has the potential to strengthen Sino-Swiss relations. By using the know-how and innovation of Swiss businesses, Switzerland's private sector can play an important role in the implementation of infrastructure projects.

As an example, Switzerland boasts globally recognized expertise in the green energy sector, as well as in the construction of tunnels.

"Only a few months ago, we opened the world's longest and most modern railway tunnel in the Swiss mountains Jesse Lingard Jersey ," Leuthard said.

Leuthard stressed however that the initiative must integrate meticulous risk management for it to succeed.

This entails respecting internationally recognized norms and standards, something Switzerland already encourages within the AIIB in terms of social and environmental benchmarks.

It's also important to guarantee transparency with regards to project-financing mechanisms and legal measures guiding bidding procedures and attributions.

Finally, concerted planning on an international scale is crucial to carry out the projects in question.

Speaking of the relations between Switzerland and China, Leuthard said that they were characterized by "friendship and mutual respect."

The state visit of China's President Xi Jinping in January this year, she said Lee Grant Jersey , underscored the quality of bilateral relations, while highlighting that despite numerous differences "in terms of size, economic model and political system, healthy relations and successful cooperation is both possible and necessary".

Switzerland has always shown a pioneering and innovative spirit when it comes to its relations with China.

The confederation was one of the first Western countries to recognize the People's Republic of China in 1950, and among the first European countries to recognize China's market economy status Chris Smalling Jersey , Leuthard said.

Switzerland was also the first nation in continental Europe to establish a free-trade agreement with Asia's economic powerhouse.

Today, China is Switzerland's top trading partner in Asia, and its third biggest after the European Union and the United States.

"This pioneering character is indeed an important feature of the bilateral relations between our countries, and Switzerland counts on consolidating and pursuing these good relations," the Swiss president said.

Switzerland and China are working together on a series of projects in areas of common interest such as culture Marcus Rashford Jersey , research and education, the environment and energy, finance, intellectual property and human rights.

Over 20 bilateral mechanisms of dialogue and cooperation are cur.
