BOSTON -- Patrick Kane didnt have to score the Stanley Cup-winning goal this time to earn the Conn Smythe Trophy. His performance throughout the playoffs, and especially the final, did the trick. Kane, whose overtime goal in 2010 gave the Blackhawks their first championship since 1961, led Chicago in scoring in the 2013 playoffs. He finished with 19 points on nine goals and 10 assists, including nine points in his final 10 games. "Its much deserved," said captain Jonathan Toews, who won the Conn Smythe three years ago. "Theres a lot of guys in that room that could have won that. I dont think theres anyone better than him. They way he played down the stretch, we wouldnt be here without him. Hes a hell of a player. Im very happy for him." Kane joked that goaltender Corey Crawford (1.84 goals-against average and .932 save percentage) was snubbed. Cases also could have been made for left-winger Patrick Sharp and Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask. But Kane was one of the Blackhawks major catalysts, especially once coach Joel Quenneville reunited with Toews and Bryan Bickell on Chicagos No. 1 line. "I think it speaks more for my team than myself, personally," Kane said. "Playing with great players, it was the best year of my life just playing with these guys." Kane scored twice in Game 5 to put the Blackhawks on the verge of their second title in four years and was on the ice for two more goals in Mondays Game 6 clincher at TD Garden. Nothing about those performances surprised Dale Hunter, who coached Kane with the Ontario Hockey Leagues London Knights in 2006-07. Hunter recalled on Monday when his brother and Knights general manager, Mark, called Kane into his office 10 games into a season that began with six or seven goals and a few assists. "(Mark) said, OK, Pat, youre playing outstanding and adjusting to junior-A fine, and youre doing really good," Dale Hunter said. "(Kane) goes, No, no, you havent seen me yet. Im better than that." Its hard to see Kane playing any better than he did in this Cup final and in parts of these playoffs. He had a hat trick, including the overtime winner, to send Chicago past the Los Angeles Kings in the Western Conference final. "When hes playing with the puck, hes so dynamic and skilled and fun to watch," Sharp said. "Sometimes we watch him a little bit too much. But hes a great player and once he started to get it into gear he was going to be lights out. He was lights out in this series and the last couple games against L.A." Being lights out, Kane said, had a lot to do with his teammates and linemates. "We actually came up with a name for myself this morning, calling me the Benefish, for the beneficiary of all their hard work," Kane said. "I had a couple chances to finish and ended up doing that, so got to give them the credit. "It ended up working out."

Kenneth Faried scored a career-high 32 points, Lawson had 30 in his third game back from the injury and the Denver Nuggets beat the skidding Los Angeles Lakers 134-126 on Friday night. "When you sit out, you watch a lot of tape from a lot of games and I could see things opening up or things I wasnt taking," said Lawson, averaging 27 points and 11.6 assists since his return. "Its been helping me shooting the 3s, and making them, and its opened up the rest of my game, the mid-range shots, getting to the basket and getting more assists." Lawson shot 5 of 7 on 3-pointers and had 17 assists, matching his career high. Faried grabbed 13 rebounds and Wilson Chandler scored 19 points. Timofey Mozgov and Evan Fournier added 13 points apiece for the Nuggets, who swept the three-game season series. Fournier said its evident by Lawsons recent play that he put his time away from the game to good use. "When youre injured, you have the time to relax and think of what you can do better," Fournier said. "Hes so fast. Hes so good. Im just glad hes back on the team because he brings so much for us." Certainly more than the Lakers could deal with on this night. "He is fast, he can shoot, he can do everything," Lakers swingman Xavier Henry said. "He had a good game and you take your hat off to him." Los Angeles got 27 points from Pau Gasol but could not avoid its third straight defeat and sixth in eight games. This one ensured the clubs first losing season since going 34-48 in 2004-05. Jordan Farmar and Robert Sacre had 24 points apiece for the Lakers, who were coming off a 142-94 loss to the Los Angeles Clippeers on Thursday.dddddddddddd The 48-point defeat was the biggest in franchise history for the Lakers, who have given up an average of 136 points in their last three losses. "You cant win that way," coach Mike DAntoni said. "We are trying everything we can do. ... I dont know if the air has gone out or we are tired or what the problem is." Trailing by 19 heading into the fourth quarter, the Lakers put together a 9-2 spurt to pull to 117-104 with 7:40 remaining. But they couldnt cut the lead below double digits until the final 1:30, and Faried responded with a layup on the other end before Gasol put in a final basket that still left the Lakers well short. "I know Im tired of it and our team is tired of it, but our defence needs to get better," Sacre said. "Thats the key, our defence. If we get guys (opponents) averaging 140 points each night, its not good enough." Faried hit a reverse layup in the final moments of the second quarter to push Denvers lead at halftime to 77-66 in what was its highest-scoring opening half of the season. The Lakers had pulled into a 55-all tie when Farmar and Ryan Kelly hit 3-pointers sandwiched around a 3 by Randy Foye, but the Nuggets gained some separation with a 10-0 burst that began and ended on baskets by Lawson. Denver led 42-35 after the first quarter, surpassing its previous high for points in the first by a point. NOTES: Gasol played in his 898th career game, ranking 29th among active players. ... The Nuggets previous high in the first half was 69 points against Orlando on Jan. 11. ... Faried had his 58th career double-double. Denver is 47-11 in those games. ...Vo 43 for Denver, snapping a string of 11 consecutive games in which they were outrebounded.

The Toronto Maple Leafs look for their second straight win on Tuesday when they host the New York Islanders at Air Canada Centre. Listen to the game on TSN Radio 1050 Toronto at 7pm et. The club dropped three in a row before ending the slump with Saturdays 4-2 win over visiting Buffalo. James van Riemsdyk scored twice to lift the Maple Leafs to a win Saturday in the back end of a home-and-home series with the Sabres. Mason Raymond posted a goal and an assist while Nikolai Kulemin also scored for Toronto. James Reimer posted 33 saves in the victory. Reimer is 4-2-1 with a 3.43 goals against average in his career against the Islanders. Fellow Toronto goaltender Jonathan Bernier has never faced the Isles. Torontos Phil Kessel will be in the lineup for tonights contest after the star winger sat out practice on Monday with a bout of the flu. Kessel is leading Toronto this season in both goals (10) and points (19). Meanwhile, Maple Leafs forward Tyler Bozak returned to practice Monday for the first time since suffering a hamstring injury on Oct. 25. Bozak is eligible to come off the injured reserve on Thursday, but its unclear if he will be able to play in Torontos game that night against Nashville. The Islanders try to win consecutive games for only the second time this season. The Islanders last won back-to-back outings on Nov. 1 and 2 against Ottawa and Boston, respectively. New York is coming off Saturdays home shootout victory over Detroit, although that win did come at a cost as goaltender Evgeni Nabokov suffered a groin injury early in the affair. Nabokov had sat out the previous three games before returning to action on Saturday against the Red Wings. His return didnt last long, however, as the 38-year-old veteran left 4:12 into the game after facing only one shot. Nabokov was placed on injured reserve on Monday and could miss a month of action or more. Kevin Poulin, who is 2-1-0 in his last three decisions, stopped 19-of-22 shots through overtime in his relief effort on Saturday. He also turned aside Detroits Henrik Zetterberg, Pavel Datsyuk and Todd Bertuzzi in the shootout phase to seal the 5-4 triumph for the Isles. "He battles hard, he competes really hard," Islanders captain John Tavares said about Poulin. "Hes a confident guy and did a great job obviously in the shootout." With Nabokov on the shelf, Poulin will assume the starters role. The Islanders also recalled netminder Anders Nilsson from their American Hockey League affiliate in Bridgeport to serve in a backup role. Frans Nielsen scored the lone shootout goal on Saturday, while Tavares registered a goal and an assist for the Islanders, who once again played without winger Thomas Vanek. The Austrian forward has missed the past four games after playing in just six games with New York following a trade with Buffalo last month. Vanek, who has five goals and seven assists in 19 total games this season, will not play tonight. Saturdays win allowed New York to complete a three-game homestand with a 2-1-0 record. The club will play its next three on the road and is just 3-6-0 as the guest this season. The Isles have won three straight and four of their last six games in Toronto. New York has claimed three of four overall in this series. The Maple Leafs, however, are boasting a strong 7-2-0 mark on home ice this season and are beginning a four-game stay at the ACC tonight.

Falloons goal at 15:01 of overtime sealed the Yorkton Terriers first RBC Cup championship with a 4-3 victory over the Carleton Place Canadians. He jammed in a rebound to cap Yorktons comeback from a 3-1 deficit with less than three minutes left in regulation time. "Its unbelievable. Its just the best feeling and I dont think Ill ever score a bigger goal than that for the rest of my life," said Falloon, 21, who has used up his junior eligibility. Falloons goal gave the Terriers their first Canadian Junior A championship in their fifth trip to the tournament. Yorkton placed second to the Burnaby Express, led by current Ottawa Senators centre Kyle Turris, in their last trip to the RBC Cup in Streetsville, Ont., in 2006. The Terriers had finished no better than third in their three other trips, all in the 1990s. The puck barely crossed the line as Carleton Place goaltender Guillaume Therien attempted to cover it. While the crowd waited, the referee confirmed it was a goal. After trailing 3-1 at the end of the second period, the Terriers forced overtime with goals from Tanner Lishchynsky and Dylan Johnson eight seconds apart in the last three minutes of the third period. Daylan Gatzke had Yorktons other goal and Kale Thompson made 31 saves. Anthony McVeigh, Stephen Baylis and Andy Sturtz scored for the Canadians while Therien stopped 42 shots in the losing effort. Falloons overtime winner was his second of the tournament. He also scored in extra time against Dauphin in the round robin. "I guess I just happened to be at the right place at the right time," said Falloon. "Im sure any of the boys could have (done) it. Lucky me, I guess." Falloon missed the first three games of this tournament with his third concussion of the season, suffered in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League playoffs. He missed most of the Western Canadian championship tournament, from which Yorkton qualified for the RBC Cup. Yorkton coach Don Chesney said Falloons return brought life to Yorktons lineup. "He has a flair for the dramatic," said Chesney. "I joked around (saying) his first (overtime goal) didnt make the back of the net. (The RBC Cup-winning) one, I think, made it -- maybe a few inches over the goal-line. But in 10, 20 years, thatll be the nicest goal he ever scored and the biggest goal he ever scored." Johnson also provided some drama as his tying goal, at 17:20 of the third period atoned for an interference penalty he took at 14:05. "To bee honest, when we got that penalty with five minutes left, it was not looking too good, and they shut us down pretty good," said Chesney.dddddddddddd "We didnt create a lot of high-quality scoring chances." Added Johnson: "That (goal) felt great, especially after getting that penalty a couple minutes before that. Getting that goal was unreal. It brought the life back into the fans. After we got that, we knew this was ours." Until then, the Canadians had a good reason to think they would claim the crown in their first RBC Cup appearance. "Looking back on it now, maybe I should have called a timeout after the second goal," said Carleton Place coach Jason Clarke. "But weve just been so resilient all year. Things didnt really seem to bother us." Baylis put the Canadians ahead 2-1 at 4:12 of the second period as he fired a shot from the slot after his teammates fought to keep the puck in at the blue-line along the boards with little space to work with. Sturtz increased the Carleton Place advantage midway through the second, stealing the puck from a Terrier in one corner and skating to the opposite side to put in a backhand. But just when it looked like the Canadians could begin to rest easy, Lishchynsky and Johnson sent the game to overtime, setting up Falloons special moment. "Were proud (of getting to the final), but its a sour taste, for sure," said Clarke. Falloon received advice from his cousin Pat Falloon, the former NHLer who was drafted second overall by the San Jose Sharks after Eric Lindros in 1991. "(Pat) was talking to my dad," said Falloon. "We family-farm with him (in Foxwarren, Man.) We keep in touch with him. He was texting my dad and telling me to keep calm and just do what I can do." The RBC Cup adds a second Canadian junior crown to the extended Falloon family. Pat Falloon won a Memorial Cup with the Spokane Chiefs in 1991, when he was named the tournaments most valuable player. "Ive heard stories," said the younger Falloon. Falloons hockey future is far from certain. He only knows how he will spend his summer. "Were just going to celebrate, and then Im going to go back (home)," he said. "Ive got to get to work on the farm." Notes: The game marked the first time in 19 years that the Canadian Junior A final went to overtime. ... Los Angeles Kings centre Jarret Stoll sent a congralutory tweet to Yorkton for reaching the final. Stoll grew up in the Yorkton/Melville area. a Yorkton assistant coach John Odgers is the son of former NHLer Jeff Odgers.

He will take charge of a side likely to be without European football next season and seemingly with plenty of issues to resolve.We take a look at five things on the Italians to-do list when he arrives at Stamford Bridge, and before... Will Conte fit? What should we expect from the new Chelsea boss? Resolve John Terrys futureChelsea look set to lose one of their most experienced and decorated players in the summer unless John Terry signs a new deal. The 35-year-old said in January that he will be leaving Stamford Bridge when his current contract expires as the club is moving in a different direction.But is that the direction Conte wants to go? Speaking on Sky Sports in February, Graeme Souness says he cannot imagine why the club would not want Terry to stay. John Terry is out of contract in the summer I cannot believe that John Terry will not be here next year, Souness said. I cant think of one reason why you wouldnt want him here. You can go and spend all the money you want, 50 or 60 million pounds, you can buy the very best centre-half out there, but he is not going to come into the Chelsea dressing room and have the same influence. It would be a mistake at every level for me if you get rid of John Terry.There have been reports that Conte is open to keeping Terry and former Chelsea assistant manager Ray Wilkins told Sky Sports News HQ that he thinks the Italian will want to use his experience and pick his brains.However, if he does depart then it would leave a huge hole for Conte to fill. Chelsea appoint Conte Chelsea have confirmed Antonio Conte will become their new head coach Help Hazard get back to his bestIts hard to remember many other players whose level has nosedived so dramatically in such a short space of time. From PFA Player of the Year in 2014/15, Eden Hazard has struggled badly for form and fitness this season and is yet to score a Premier League goal.He also appears to have been tempted by a move away from Stamford Bridge, saying in February that it would be hard to turn down a move to Paris Saint-Germain. Eden Hazard has struggled for form and fitness this season Although interim Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink thinks Hazard can return to his best form, Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson thinks he should be sold if the price is right.Id drop him off if I could get £60m for him. Hes had one good year and this season hes been bordering on atrocious. If you can get the money, youd take it all day long. You dont know if he will turn out to be a one-season wonder and you cant take that chance.With a contract until 2020, it seems unlikely that Chelsea will let the Belgian leave unless they receive a substantial offer. Instead it will be down to Conte to find a way of rejuvenating the 25-year-old and transforming him into one of the clubs top players again.Get a grip on transfer policyJose Mourinho might have taken the fall for Chelseas poor season, but the Portuguese could point to a lack of support in the transfer window as one of the reasons for the beloww-par results.ddddddddddddWhile signings were made, none of Radamel Falcao, Abdul Rahman Baba, Papy Djilobodji or Pedro have hit the mark. The same could be said of Alexandre Pato, who joined on loan in January and only made his debut at the weekend. Who should Chelsea sell? Paul Merson looks at which players Chelsea should keep It is clear that significant changes are needed, but will Conte be able to overhaul the squad without the lure of European football next season?Sky in Italy reporter Augusto de Bartolo thinks the former Juventus boss will make three or four additions, among them potentially Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan.At Juventus, to protect Paul Pogba he had Andrea Pirlo, Claudio Marchisio or Arturo Vidal. For this reason, I think Conte will try to buy a player that will be useful for that. It could be Radja Nainggolan, from AS Roma, who Conte admires, says De Bartolo. Will Conte look to sign Radja Nainggolan? Conte will also need to address the striking issues. While Diego Costas dip in form could not be foreseen, Chelsea should have had better back-ups in place than Loic Remy and Falcao.They need to buy another forward in the summer because it cant just be Costa, says Merson.Give youth a chanceIt might not be a short-term fix, but giving more youngsters more of a chance might prevent Chelsea losing talented players as they did with Romelu Lukaku and Kevin de Bruyne, both of whom are excelling after leaving Stamford Bridge due to a lack of opportunities.Certainly Conte will have plenty of players to work with. Chelsea have a host of youngsters out on loan around Europe as well as the likes of Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Matt Miazga and Bertrand Traore already in the squad. Will Ruben Loftus-Cheek get a chance under Conte? How the Italian balances development with signings could be key to Chelseas future. At least by the time he arrives he might have more of an idea what he is working with, as Hiddink has said he plans to give some of the youngsters more first-team minutes before the end of the season.That could help the Italian to decide who stays at Stamford Bridge and who heads out on loan.Look at all the loansWith over 30 players out on loan, Conte will have decisions aplenty to make in the summer.Will Patrick Bamford be sent out on a sixth loan? Will Juan Cuadrado be recalled from Juventus? Is Michael Hector ready to play Premier League football? Mohamed Salah looks unlikely to return from Italy but Victor Moses future will need to be resolved as it is understood West Ham will not be turning his loan move into a permanent deal. Victor Moses looks set to return from his season-long loan at West Ham Like with the youngsters already at the club, it will be a balancing act for Conte, but one thing is for sure: Chelsea can do without bringing in any more loan signings themselves.Perhaps seeing how Falcao and Pato have flopped will bring about a shift in the Blues transfer policy.

st very hard to deal with w

FORTALEZA, Brazil -- The Dutch were worried about the oppressive heat at Arena Castelao, and they left it with the stifling hot conditions to thank for a spot in the World Cup quarterfinals. An inspired tactical change during the second of two official stoppages led to a late goal from Netherlands forward Wesley Sneijder and an injury-time penalty from Klaas Jan Huntelaar in a dramatic 2-1 victory over Mexico on Sunday. "I moved to Plan B at the cooling break," said Netherlands coach Louis van Gaal, soon to be the manager at Manchester United. "That is a good way to take advantage of those breaks." Despite scoring 10 goals in three group matches, the Dutch again started the match with a defensive 5-3-2 system. Van Gaal made the switch to a more attacking 4-3-3 formation in the second half and tweaked it further when referee Pedro Proenca stopped the match in the 76th minute to allow players to rehydrate. That helped turn the match around and extend Mexicos second-round curse to six straight World Cups. "Unbelievable," said Arjen Robben, the Netherlands forward that earned the late penalty. "Five minutes from full time, we were out." Instead of the Dutch players, it was the Mexicans who wilted in the heat as they conceded twice as many goals in the final minutes of the match as they had in the entire group stage. "The humidity was against us, but we were fresher and fitter than the Mexicans," Van Gaal said. "Yes, we escaped. But we showed that we could create more chances with 4-3-3, and the players handled this shift very well." The Dutch will next face Costa Rica in the quarterfinals on Saturday in Salvador, and may have to play without midfielder Nigel de Jong, who was substituted in the ninth minute with a groin injury. Mexico coach Miguel Herrera, one of the most popular characters at the World Cup because of his emotive ways on the sidelines, blamed Proenca for the loss and accused Robben of diving under a challenge from Rafael Marquez to earn the penalty. "Today it was the man with the whistle who eliminated us from the World Cup," Herrera said. "If a referee invents a penalty, youre out of the World Cup. "I hope they have a look at what happened and that this gentleman goes home just like we are." Marquez said Robben admitted that it was a bad call, but added that the Dutchman thought he should have been awarded a spot kick for an earlier challenge. "I spoke with him after the match and he told me that it was not a penalty," Marquez said. "He said that the first foul was a penalty and that one was not called." Mexico has now advanced to the second round at the World Cup six straight times and not reached the quarterfinals. The last time the team made it that far was as host of the 1986 tournament. Giovani Dos Santos gave the Mexicans the lead in the 48th minute after a goalless first half, but Sneijder equalized with a hard shot in the 88th. It was the first time Sneijder, who scored five goals at the last World Cup in South Africa, has found the net in Brazil. Robben, who has already scored three goals for the Dutch at this years tournament, then earned the penalty in the fourth minute of injury time but he handed the ball to Huntelaar. "You dont know when your chance will come, but it was today, and so you grab it with both hands," said Huntelaar, who replaced captain Robin van Persie in the 76th minute. "And it was fantastic." For Mexico, goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa was again the star player, pulling off two more great saves after playing a key role in holding Brazil to a 0-0 draw in Group A. But he couldnt block Sneijders shot and guessed wrong when diving in an attempt to stop Huntelaars penalty. "It isnt easy to go out this way, the way this match went," Ochoa said. "Its just very hard to deal with when victory escapes you this way." Koen Casteels Jersey . For the Bombers it has been a combination of things coming together at the most inappropriate moments in time. Quarterback, injuries, Canadian talent or depth and leadership are all issues.

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated after speeding down a street in Raleigh on Saturday, bringing the troubled Pro Bowlers already cloudy future into more doubt. Gordon was taken into custody after being pulled over for going 50 mph in a 35 mph zone on U.S. 70 in northwest Raleigh around 3 a.m. Saturday, police spokesman Jim Sughrue said. The police report on Gordons arrest wasnt finished, so Sughrue didnt know what type of vehicle Gordon was driving or what led the officer to suspect he had been drinking. Gordon was released on bail. Court records did not list an attorney. The 23-year-old wide receiver has been in trouble before off the field. He was suspended two games last season for violating the NFLs substance-abuse policy, but still led the league with 1,646 yards receiving . Gordon reportedly failed another drug test during the off-season, which could lead to a season-long ban. In May, he was ticketed for speeding and a passenger in his car was cited for marijuana possession. Hee pleaded not guilty and has a hearing in the case scheduled for next Friday.dddddddddddd Gordon was at teams recent mini-camp, but has declined interviews. Browns management has been waiting to hear from the NFL before deciding Gordons future. Cleveland General Manager Ray Farmer found out about the arrest hours after it happened. "We are aware of the matter and are disappointed to learn of this situation. We will comment further at the appropriate time," Farmer said in a statement. Gordons agent Drew Rosenhaus said he had no comment about the arrest. Gordon entered the league out of Baylor with a history of substance-abuse issues. Gordon is known to have failed at least three drug tests in college, but the Browns were willing to overlook his past when they selected him in the second round of the supplemental draft in 2012. Former teammate and captain, linebacker DQwell Jackson said on Twitter: "If youre close to Josh Gordon please help this kid, its not about football anymore its about picking up the pieces of his life."

CLEVELAND -- The New York Yankees got a major boost from their young pitchers Monday night. Shane Greene allowed two runs in six innings for his first major league win, All-Star Dellin Betances earned his first career save and the Yankees beat the Cleveland Indians 5-3. Greene (1-0) didnt allow a hit until Nick Swishers two-out homer in the fifth. The 25-year-old right-hander was called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after scheduled starter Vidal Nuno was traded to Arizona for right-hander Brandon McCarthy on Sunday. "Its a dream come true," Greene said. "Theres no question about that." Betances pitched the final two innings, giving closer David Robertson a rest day. "Its pretty cool," Betances said. "I was just trying to go out there and keep it the same and make pitches." "Some really good stuff out of some young pitchers," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "Weve gotten a lot of help from our guys in the minor leagues." Brett Gardner, Brian McCann and Ichiro Suzuki had three hits apiece for New York, which has won four of five on its 11-game road trip. Justin Masterson (4-6) continued to pitch poorly and was pulled without retiring a batter in the third. Clevelands opening-day starter allowed five runs and six hits in two-plus innings. He walked three, hit a batter and rarely topped 90 mph in his 54 pitches, throwing only 24 strikes. A 15th-round selection by New York in 2009, Greene allowed four hits, struck out two and didnt walk a batter. His only big league appearance prior to Monday came in relief against Boston on April 24 when he pitched one-third of an inning and allowed three unearned runs. Greene walked three of four hitters, all of whom scored, and threw eight of 23 pitches for strikes. "Weve said all along this kid has a lot of talent," Girardi said. "He did a lot of good things." Its unclear if Greene will get another start. "Thats obviously going to be a topic of discussion," Girardi said. "We havent made any decisions moving forward. Well figure it out here pretty quick." Asked if he thinks he deserves to in the rotation, Greene smiled and said, "Thats not up to me." Derek Jeter, playing in his final regular-season series in Cleveland, was 1 for 4 and drew a bases-loaded walk in the second. Yan Gomes hit a leadoff homer in the eighth. New York scored three times in the second when Masterson allowed four hits, walked two and hit a batter. Brian Roberts had an RBI double, Brett Gardner drove in a run with a single and Jeter was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded. Ichiro Suzukis infield hit and Francisco Cervellis fielders choice added two runs in the third. Mastersons struggles have become a growing concern for the Indians. Over his last five starts, the right-hander has allowed 19 runs, 27 hits and 17 walks in 18 innings. Masterson has pitched more than four innings once in that stretch. Masterson was given extra time off because of a sore knee after lasting four innings against Arizona on June 24, but that didnt help. He didnt retire a batter in the fourth inning against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday and a stint on the disabled list is a possibility. Asked about Mastersons knee Francona said, "Its hard to ask somebody when theyre pitching. I think we need to sit and visit with Masty. The middle of a games not the time to do that." "Well talk about it, I guess," Masterson said. "If that were brought up I guess that would be something to talk about to work through." Masterson is a free agent after the season. The two sides talked about a contract extension in spring training, but didnt reach an agreement. NOTES: Yankees OF Carlos Beltran didnt play because of swelling behind his right knee. He said following the game that he might return to the lineup Tuesday. ... Indians OF Michael Bourn will miss three to four weeks with a strained left hamstring. ....

Blaine Gabbert Jersey . They started shooting the puck. Joe Pavelski had a hat trick to move into a tie for second in the NHL in goals and the Sharks beat Philadelphia 7-3 Thursday night in the first game for both teams following the Olympic break.(SportsNetwork.com) - The margin for error is getting smaller and smaller when it comes to the AFC playoff hunt for the Miami Dolphins. And the Dolphins cant afford another slip up when they put a period on Week 13 of the NFL season by visiting a hapless New York Jets team turning back to Geno Smith on Monday Night Football. Smith, who started the first eight games this season before being benched, replaced Michael Vick under center during last Mondays 38-3 drubbing at the hands of the Buffalo Bills, a setback that dropped the Jets to 2-9. Embattled New York coach Rex Ryan claims to have made the decision and informed both quarterbacks Wednesday morning. Everybodys on board with this decision, Ryan said. I have said it all along that I feel we have two good quarterbacks, I definitely feel that. And we have another guy that is a decent quarterback as well, in (Matt) Simms. But I feel that way. Smith had been the Jets starter for the first 24 games of his career after the team selected him in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft. He was benched in the Week 8 loss to Buffalo after throwing three interceptions in the first 10 minutes of the contest and Vick was named the starter the following week. We purposely put Geno back, let him observe, Ryan said. Now is the opportunity for him to step back in and lets see how it goes. I, for one, am excited to watch him. He has my support on this, and thats what Ill say about it. Vick started the past three games for the Jets, leading the team to a victory in Week 10 against Pittsburgh to end an eight-game losing streak. He struggled in Mondays game against the Bills at Detroits Ford Field, completing just 7- of-19 passes for 76 yards with an interception while being sacked five times. The game was moved from Ralph Wilson Stadium after the venue was deemed unplayable due to several feet of snow that fell last week, crippling Buffalo and neighboring areas. Smith entered in the third quarter and connected on 10-of-12 throws for 89 yards while being sacked twice. Horrible performance. We couldnt do anything. Couldnt block. Couldnt tackle. Couldnt cover. It was just an awful performance, Ryan admitted. The Dolphins suffered their own disappointing, almost debilitating loss at Denver in Week 12, albeit a far more competitive one when Peyton Manning threw four touchdown passes, three to Demaryius Thomas and two during a fourth- quarter rally, that lifted the Broncos to a hard-earned 39-36 win. The Broncos trailed a gritty Miami team for most of the game and were down 28-17 after three quarters, then erupted for 22 consecutive points in the fourth to regain sole possession of first place in the AFC West. Ryan Tannehill threw for three touchdowns and ran for another to put Miami in position for the upset before Manning engineered his 41st career fourth- quarter comeback. The young quarterback completed 26-of-36 throws for 228 yards with a costly late interception that helped seal the outcome. As a competitor, you dont like to see it, Tannehill said. We didnt score enough points in the second half. Jarvis Landry hauled in two of Tannehills scoring strikes and recorded seven catches for 50 yards. The Jets lead their all-time series with Miami by a 50-45-1 margin. OOn Monday night, the Dolphins play .dddddddddddd00 football at 40-40 while New York is underwater at 20-29. The two teams will rematch in South Florida during Week 17. WHAT TO WATCH FOR Miami has struggled mightily in close games this season, going 0-3 in contests decided by four or fewer points. In addition to the loss in Denver, the Dolphins suffered setbacks to Green Bay in Week 6 and Detroit in Week 10 due to late-game collapses. We have to find a way to win some of those games, Miami coach Joe Philbin admitted. Were going to be in some more of those games. Thats just the way the NFL is. Entering Week 13, 11 of the AFCs 16 teams had six-or-more wins and most them were above the Dolphins, making this a virtual must win for a team which hasnt reached the playoffs since 2008. I dont think the records really matter right now, Philbin said. We have to go win a game against the New York Jets. Thats really the only thing that is on my mind and should be on our players minds at this point. Getting to play the Jets twice in the final five weeks will only help, especially now that they have turned back toward Smith, who looked terribly overmatched in his first eight opportunities this season. The West Virginia product has thrown for 1,459 yards with seven touchdowns and 10 interceptions this season. Turnovers have been a major issue for the Jets, who are minus-12 on the season, a number that helps explain how the team can be ranked No. 7 in total defense (328.8 yards per game) but be tied for 30th in points allowed (27.5 points per game). Tannehill, meanwhile, has been hot recently and is third in the NFL with a 70.9 completion percentage over his last six games while throwing 12 TD passes against just three interceptions over that span. With Smith back under center the Jets will try to rely on a running game that stumbled against the Bills, gaining just 92 yards on the ground. Miami, however, allowed a season-high 201 against the Broncos with the lightly- regarded C.J. Anderson gashing them for 167. They have an outstanding defensive line, Ryan said of the Dolphins. Absolutely it starts up front. If we cant block them it doesnt matter who you have at quarterback. New York is also expected to be without star defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson due to an injured toe suffered in Detroit. It doesnt look good for Big Mo, Ryan said. If youre in a boot, that doesnt look good for this week. But, hopefully, well get him back as soon as we can. OVERALL ANALYSIS By going back to Smith, Ryan has essentially waived the white flag on the season and his career as the Jets head coach. It also plainly indicates the power in the organization is with unpopular general manager John Idzik. The Jets arent a good team with either signal caller but Vick can at least get hot every now and again and make New York competitive, albeit inconsistently. I think the best thing for this team right now is to play Geno Smith, Ryan said unconvincingly. Right now, for all the reasons we talked about. Is one of those reasons, does he give you a great chance to win, or a chance to win? I believe he does give us a chance to win. Not much of one moving forward.

Coming off a franchise-record 26-point second half blown lead that knocked them a season-high five games under .500, Raptors GM Masai Ujiri realizes his team has serious roster flaws and expects his conversations with GMs around the league to intensify following a Dec. 15 deadline which allows teams to deal the free agents they signed in the off-season. Speaking Thursday on TSN 1050, the first-year GM made a point of reassuring Torontos fan-base he would not tolerate the mediocre play that has led to the team missing the post-season for five consecutive years, while also failing to land a top-four draft pick. “We will not be caught in no-mans land,” Ujiri said, noting the roster he inherited from former GM Bryan Colangelo lacks chemistry and contains parts that are too similar to function properly. “We do have the same kind of players and we have to figure that out,” Ujiri said, while acknowledging the fact the team ranks dead-last in the NBA in assists to be an issue. Besides point guard Kyle Lowry, no Raptors player is averaging more than three per game. The assist issue, combined with the teams poor three-point shooting – Toronto is 20th in the NBA in three-point percentage and none of their starters average better than 40 percent – has played a large role in the teams 6-11 start. Ujiri said chemistry is a key issue for any team and although Dwane Casey is doing his best, he is limited because of the way the roster has been constructed. Orlando Scandrick Jersey .

PORTLAND, Ore. - Paul Bittner scored two goals and Nicolas Petan added three assists as the Portland Winterhawks took Game 1 of the Western Hockey League final with a 5-2 win over the Edmonton Oil Kings. Keegan Iverson, Chase De Leo and Mathew Dumba also scored for Portland while Goaltender Corbin Boes made 31 saves for the win. Brett Pollock and Henrik Samuelsson supplied the goals for the Oil Kings as Tristan Jarry stopped 31 shots in a losing effort. Edmonton earned three power plays in the first period to Portlands none, but it was the Winterhawks who got off to a fast start. Iverson scored 2:20 into the first period to put Portland up 1-0, a score that held until the Winterhawks added two goals in the final two minutes of the period. Bittners goal with 1:53 left in period was followed by a De Leo strike 57 seconds later to put Portland up 3-0 through 20 minutes. The Oil Kings responded, as Pollock scored his team-leading 11th goal of the post-season to put Edmonton on the board 20 seconds into the second period and Samuelsson scored exactly two minutes later to make it 3-2. Dumbas power-play goal with 37 seconds left in the second rebuilt Portlands lead to 4-2, and Bittner added his second of the game with a wrist shot early in the third. Edmonton went scoreless on four power play chances in the game, while Portland finished 1 for 5. The Oil Kings and Winterhawks are meeting in the WHL final for the third straight season. Edmonton won in seven games in 2012, while Portland took the championship series in six games last season.

place departed Pablo Sandoval in the infiel

PHOENIX -- That dynamic double point guard backcourt of the Phoenix Suns might have had its best game yet. Goran Dragic scored 29 points, Eric Bledsoe had a career-high 28 and the Suns extended their season-high winning streak to four games by beating the Sacramento Kings 116-107 on Friday night. "Every game is better," Dragic said. "I know what hes going to do, he knows what Im going to do. Weve got a good feeling about each other and thats really tough for opponents." Suns coach Jeff Hornacek called it "a great tag team." "Both of those guys trust each other," Hornacek said. "If they dont really have a play and the other guy is in the view, he can get it to him and make a play." The Suns Miles Plumlee had two crucial blocks of DeMarcus Cousins shots and had four emphatic fourth-quarter dunks for 12 points. "I dont know if the guys in the league know if he can jump," Dragic said of Plumlee, "but we know." Isaiah Thomas scored 29 for Sacramento. Rudy Gay added 22 in his first game for the Kings since being acquired this week in a trade with Toronto. Cousins had 15 points and 15 rebounds but shot just 5 of 15 and wouldnt talk to reporters afterward. It was a testy night for the officials, who called five technical fouls. Gay was on a losing team in Phoenix for the second time in eight days. Toronto lost to the Suns a week earlier. "Thats the thing with trades in the middle of the season," he said. "You have to learn on the fly." Sacramento coach Michael Malone lamented his teams lack of defence. "That is two games in a row where we havent defended anybody," he said. "You look at Bledsoe and Dragic, what they did to us tonight, I am embarrassed by our defence right now. ... I cant go out there and guard. I wish I could." Phoenix took the lead for good with a 14-0 third-quarter run that started after Plumlee chased down Cousins from behind on a fast break and blocked the layup try hard off the glass. "I know Im really fast, I knew I could catch him," Plumlee said. "Its just a matter of timing it up, and it worked out." It was a play that drove the energy level in the building up a notch. "When a player makes a hustle play, it definitely gets the crowd into it, and everybody else gets motivated even more," said Bledsoe, who had eight assists. "Just for Miles to hustle back, it means a lot to the team." Bledsoe missed the first two games of the season against the Kings, and Sacramento won both. Dragics 3-pointer punctuated the 14-0 outburst and Phoenix led 77-65 with 6:13 to play in the third quarter. Dragic and Bledsoe scored five apiece in the run. But the Kings responded with a 12-4 spurt and, after Thomas driving layup with 2 seconds to play, trailed 85-82 entering the fourth quarter. Sacramento never got closer than that again. Gerald Green and Channing Frye sank 3s, then Plumlee blocked Cousins again, leading to Bledsoes layup that boosted it to 101-91 with 6:43 remaining. The Kings cut it to 105-101 on Thomas driving layup with 3:11 to go, but Bledsoe hit a 3-pointer, P.J. Tucker scored inside, then Plumlees final big dunk made it 112-103 with 1:29 to play. The Kings led by as many as 11 before a 14-3 Suns spurt put Phoenix ahead 49-47 on Dragics two free throws with 4:07 to go in the second quarter. Sacramento ran off nine consecutive points to go up 58-49 on Thomas third 3-pointer of the night 1:43 before the break. Fryes 3-pointer with 1.9 seconds to play cut Sacramentos lead to 61-58 at the half. Notes: Bledsoes previous career high was 27 last Feb. 6 for the Los Angeles Clippers at Orlando. ... Dragic just missed getting the first consecutive 30-point games of his career. He has three 30-point games this season after previously getting three in his entire career.... Technicals were called against Tucker, Hornacek and Marcus Morris of the Suns, and Jason Thompson and Cousins of the Kings. ... Gay has reached double figures in 18 of 19 games this season.

SUNDERLAND, England - Jozy Altidore had a first-half horror miss as Sunderland drew for the fifth time in the last six matches at the Stadium of Light, finishing 1-1 against West Ham in the Premier League on Saturday.Altidore wasted the hosts chance from three yards (meters) out with the goal at his mercy.Jordi Gomez put Sunderland in front with a 22nd-minute penalty but Stewart Downing dragged the Hammers level seven minutes later with a deflected effort from the right flank.Connor Wickham saw an 85th-minute drive tipped over by Hammers keeper Adrian and West Hams Andy Carroll hit a low drive from the edge of the box which narrowly missed with 89 minutes on the clock.The Hammers had travelled north in buoyant mood on the back of three straight wins that had lifted them to the improbable heights of fourth place, and with top scorer Diafra Sakho restored to their starting lineup.Anthony Reveilleres wayward defensive header let in Carl Jenkinson in the sixth minute but the on-loan Arsenal man saw his volley blocked by Sunderland goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon before Wickham booted clear.Carroll made his first impact on the game in the 10th when he met a left-wing cross by the lively Aaron Cresswell with a header which squirted high and wide.The hosts snatched the lead out of nothing in the 22nd when referee Phil Dowd pointed to the spot after James Tomkins was adjudged to have tripped Adam Johnson.Angry Hammers boss Sam Allardyce had to be calmed by Dowd after Gomez duly put the Black Cats in front with a low spot-kick to Adrians left.But the visitors were level in the 29th when north-east native Downing cut in from an apparently unthreatening position on the right flank and hit a low shot which deflected off Gomez and flashed across Pantilimon into the back of the net.Diafra Sakho shot wide from a tight angle in the 38th before Altidores moment to forget, the big American making a complete mess of a cross from the right by Sebastian Larsson.Altidore was replaced in the 62nd by Steven Fletcher and two minutes later Carroll came close for the Hammers with two quick-fire efforts, the second of which saw a lofted shot beat Pantilimon but land on the roof of the net.Sunderland had a strong penalty appeal rejected in the 71st after Santiago Verginis high ball into the box appeared to strike Winston Reid on the arm.West Ham is fourth with 28 points from 16 games.

They have a good goaltender on t

Melbourne, Australia - The third time was the charm for Li Na. The fourth-seeded Chinese star beat Dominika Cibulkova 7-6 (7-3), 6-0 at Rod Laver Arena to capture her first Australian Open title on Saturday. Li played in her third final in four years at Melbourne Park. She lost to Kim Clijsters in 2011 and Victoria Azarenka last year before finally breaking through at the seasons first Grand Slam event against the 20th-seeded Cibulkova. After I win the match, I really, really exciting, Li said. I think I have drops still coming down, you know. I try to have hug with the team, but is too high. I cannot catch it (laughter). Her win came at the end of a fortnight featuring an array of surprising results on the womens side. It was the first time since 1997 that none of the top three seeds made the semifinals. Li committed 25 of her 30 unforced errors in a competitive opening set before she unexpectedly breezed through the second. She had a 34-11 advantage in winners, many coming on her lethal backhand, and converted half of her 10 break-point chances. The second double fault by Cibulkova in the matchs opening game gave Li an early break. A double fault then hurt Li as Cibulkova gained a break to level the first set at 3-all. Li earned a break point with a strong backhand winner in the ninth game, but two of her forehands flew long and Cibulkova was able to hold for a 5-4 lead. After closing out a relative easy service game with an ace to extend the set, Li earned two break points when she followed up Cibulkovas sixth double fault with a blistering crosscourt backhand. Cibulkova then netted a backhand to give Li a 6-5 lead before she broke back to force a tiebreak. Li raced out to a commanding 5-1 lead in the tiebreak and she later claimed the 70-minute first set when Cibulkova dumped a backhand into the net. The second set lasted only 27 minutes and ended with Cibulkova sending a ground stroke long. You know, it was my first Grand Slam finals and Im just proud with the way I handle it, Cibulkova said. You know, I just went on the court. I wanted to play my best tennis. It wasnt easy against her because she was playing extremely well. So Im quite happy. Li, who turns 32 next month, captured her second Grand Slam title, adding to her victory at the 2011 French Open, and improved to 9-11 in career finals. She also is just the fourth woman to win the Aussie Open crown after saving a match point. She fought off the match point in the third round against Lucie Safarova and joined Monica Seles (1991), Jennifer Capriati (2002) and Serena Williams (2003 and 2005) to accomplish the feat. Yeah, start of tournament everybody talking about the age, Li said. I would like to say age is nothing. Still can win the Grand Slam. So pretty happy about my age. I got more experience on the court. Cibulkova, who stands just 5-foot-3, knocked off No. 3 seed Maria Sharapova in the fourth round and No. 5 seed Agnieszka Radwanska in the semifinals to become Slovakias first Grand Slam finalist. The 24-year-old fell to 3-6 in her career title tilts and 0-5 against Li. Custom Los Angeles Lakers Jerseys . - Andre Drummond had his best night on the boards. LeBron James Lakers Jersey .

John Henson contributed a double-double with 15 points to go with 11 rebounds for the Tar Heels (25-4, 12-2 ACC), who have won five straight and 10 of 11.BOSTON -- The Bruins pelted Carey Price with 51 shots. An overtime bid by Bostons Carl Soderberg slid across the crease behind the goalie but didnt go in. The team with the NHLs best regular-season record had plenty of chances. So coach Claude Julien says the Bruins are feeling positive after the Montreal Canadiens 4-3, double-overtime victory in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals Thursday night. "Of course it is," he said Friday. "There was no panic after the game. It was only Game 1 and its a long series." And Canadiens coach Michel Therrien didnt sound overconfident going into Game 2 on Saturday. "The Bruins," he said, "were the best team in the league all season long and they had a good first round and they played a solid game (Thursday)." But after having nine days off after Montreals sweep of Tampa Bay, Therrien thinks his team can improve. Price was outstanding, but the Canadiens know they cant let 51 shots get through to him again. "He stole that game for us," forward Brian Gionta said. The Bruins helped. Sloppy play led to 13 takeaways by Montreal, while Boston had just three. The Bruins also allowed two goals on the three power plays after the Canadiens had just two in 13 opportunities in the four games against the Lightning. The Bruins, after five days off, started slowly and trailed 2-0 after the second period on goals by P.K. Subban on a power play and Rene Bourque. Boston tied it in the first seven minutes of the third on goals by Reilly Smith and Torey Krug. "We had some great chances there in the second half of the second. It just took us a while to get our game going," Julien said. "I thought from midway through the second period on, thats where we were at our best." Francis Bouillon gave Montreal the lead midway through the third period before Johnny Boychuk tied it with 1:58 left in regulation. The Bruins took 14 shots in the first overtime then lost on Subbans power-play goal 4:17 into the second overtime. "We need to do a better job boxing out, bllocking shots, and disturbing their entries" on power plays, Boston centre Patrice Bergeron said, "doing a better job on our forecheck.dddddddddddd Thats all." But Bergeron, one of the NHLs top faceoff players, lost the draw and Subban scored just seven seconds after a penalty to Bostons Matt Bartkowski. Bruins defenceman Zdeno Chara didnt have enough time to get in front of Subbans blast from the blue line. "Its tough for him to come out and block that shot," Subban said. "I think he did all he could to get in my lane, but by the time he already did, I had already let it go." So now the Bruins are in the same spot where they were after Game 1 of the opening round. They lost 1-0 to Detroit then won the next four games to advance. Three years ago, they lost the first two games of the first round at home against Montreal then won it in seven games and went on to capture the Stanley Cup. "I dont think we can even think about winning the series," Subban said. "When there is success you have to take it and get better." The Bruins had plenty of success putting shots on Price. Boychuk had six and Bartkowski, David Krejci and Smith had five each. "Those games are going to happen. You just hope they dont happen in the playoffs," Smith said. "They have a good goaltender on the other side, and its something we really have to focus on, making life a little bit more difficult on him." After a close game in which they outplayed the Canadiens in several aspects, the Bruins expect to show resiliency, just as they did after falling behind 2-0 and 3-2 on Thursday. "We didnt get the first one," Boston right wing Jarome Iginla said, "but, at the same time, we did a lot of things that we feel are a part of our game and were effective, and we stay with that." But the Canadiens wont be satisfied with gaining a split in Boston. "The Bruins played a really solid game," Therrien said. "The thing I know and I believe is that our team is going to be better next game."

a four-game road trip in P

WINNIPEG -- It looks like a couple of starting quarterbacks are out for the season in the CFL West but it really wont matter much to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers as they look to climb out of last place in the division, coach Mike OShea said Tuesday. Saskatchewan Roughriders Darian Durant tore a tendon in his elbow in Sundays win in Winnipeg and, in his first game back in 2014, B.C.s Travis Lulay injured the same shoulder that had kept him from playing until now, as it healed from off-season surgery. But that still doesnt mean the Bombers (6-5) will have an easier time of it, said OShea. "Theres no point in looking at it that way for us," said OShea. "Travis Lulay played one game, right, so Kevin Glenns got them to where they are right now (6-4). In reality, Kevin Glenns been the starter. "And we dont play Saskatchewan again until the playoffs. So theres nothing we can really do about that." Of course, Winnipeg has to make the playoffs, and with five of their seven remaining games against western teams, that isnt going to be easy. They start with the B.C. Lions on Saturday. The Lions (6-4) are the only western team the Bombers have managed to beat this season, their first back in the West in about a decade. As for Saskatchewan, theyve taken the Bombers down three times in 2014, although Sundays 30-24 win was just as painful for the winners as it was for the losers with Durant injured and expected to undergo surgery in the next few days. "Realistically, his regular season is probably done," said Roughriders general manager Brendan Taman. "Whether or not we can get him back for the playoffs, well see. Its not the greatest of outlooks." The outlook is just as grim for Lulay. "Travis has suffered a shoulder dislocation very similar to the one he had last season," Dr. Bob McCormack said in a statement after Lulay was injured in Fridays 7-5 win over the Ottawa Redblacks. "Due to the nature of the injury, the surgery which was performed on Travis shoulder last winter has essentially been undone." Despite OSheas comments, if Winnipeg quarterback Drew Willy can stay healthy the Bombers chances of making the playoffs would seem to have increased with both Lulay and Durant gone. The Bombers do have their own injury issues, but none as critical. One of the most troublesome right now may be the absence of long-snapper and linebacker Ian Wild. Bad snaps didnt help Sunday as the Bombers fell 30-24 to the Roughriders, after surrendering an early lead. OShea said there is a chance Wild may be ready to return to meet B.C., but the Bombers dont want to risk his health by sending him in too soon. They were missing receiver Nick Moore last Sunday with a sprained ankle but the Bombers are deep at receiver this season and have veteran Romby Bryant in reserve. He picked up 60 yards Sunday in a losing effort in which OShea noted the Bomber offence actually had a pretty good game. Meanwhile, offensive linemen Pat Neufeld and Mathias Goossen are also injured and OShea said Neufeld is possibly out for another week still, although Goossen may be able to return to practice. The Bombers will practise for the first time Wednesday since Sundays loss. Penalties (13 of them) were also costly for the Bombers Sunday and OShea said hes discussed the issue with the team. "What are we averaging, were averaging nine a game, and we had 13, so theres four more. The unfortunate part is those four are probably URs (unnecessary roughness) which adds up to a lot of yards. Weve just got to do a better job." He said he is still seeking clarification about a couple of those 13 penalties because hes unclear on exactly what was called.

Cousins shot 10-of-14 from the floor and made 10 of his 11 free throws for the Kings, winners in four straight after opening the season with a home loss to Golden State. They topped the Nuggets in Denver on Monday, 110-105. Playing defense, I believe, helps build chemistry. We trust in one another and its going over to the other side of the floor, Cousins said.

Randy Foyes 19 points led the way for Denver, which got 13 points and nine assists from Ty Lawson.

Gay chipped in with nine, Darren Collison scored seven and the Kings led 40-19 after one. Denver controlled the second quarter, opening the frame on a 6-0 run and pulling back within nine points midway through after Foyes 3-pointer. Twice the deficit reached eight, but Cousins dunk seconds before halftime made it 68-54. The third quarter played out much like the first, with the Kings asserting their dominance.

because it means he knows

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - The Broncos braved the cold for their first full practice of Super Bowl week, working in pads for nearly two hours after a 30-minute walkthrough session Wednesday. Denver practiced on the synthetic turf outdoor field at the New York Jets training facility. By the end of practice, the temperature dipped to 21 degrees. "It was great," Broncos coach John Fox said after practice. "Were pretty much weather-proof. We practice in this stuff all the time. Being in Denver, weve played in a few different elements. We practiced numerous times in single digit, played in single digit, played in wind. Weve practiced in snow many times. Were pretty much ready for anything." Fox has chosen not to use the indoor field at the Jets plush headquarters for practices this week, opting for the type of natural elements that will greet his team at Met Life Stadium on Super Sunday. Fox was pleased with the flow after the travel and various commitments connected to playing in a Super Bowl. Wednesday is typically when the focus toward the game increases, given the full-scale practices. "I wanted to see how well they would re-boot, get re-charged and practice what weve put in," Fox said. "They recalled it and it went very well. We had a very good practice." The Broncos had a sense of normalcy on a few levels. Peyton Manning, as usual, was in command and precise with his throws. He seemed unaffected by the elements. "Very sharp," Fox said. "What Ive noticed, he had to get used to weather over the past two years. I think hes done an unbelievable job, which I think people forget." Penny Hardaway Jersey . The third-seeded Bouchard, from Westmount, Que., was coming off a semifinal appearance at the French Open.

Ibrahimovic put PSG ahead when he got in front of his marker to neatly flick in Lucass cross in the 59th minute. New signing Yohan Cabaye came on as a second-half substitute and headed Ezequiel Lavezzis cross against the post in the 87th. Moments later, Lucas set up another goal from the right when fellow countryman Alex turned in his corner with a strikers finish. Last weekend, Alexs late header had rescued a point as PSG laboured to a 1-1 draw away to Guingamp. "We came into this match on the back of a draw and a defeat," PSG coach Laurent Blanc said. "I think we just didnt let Bordeaux play at all. Defensively, we didnt cooncede many corners, and we did what we had to do, although we could have done a bit better up front.ddddddddddddLucas did well, but given how many chances he gets he should score." Midfielder Blaise Matuidi welcomed Cabayes arrival. "He did well when he came on, and we know hes a very good player," Matuidi said. "Thats good for us and good for the French league for such a player to come back to France." The only drawback for PSG was an injury to 20-goal scorer Edinson Cavani. The Uruguay striker limped off in the 75th clutching the back of his right thigh and is doubtful for next weeks League Cup semifinal against Nantes and the clash with Monaco. "He felt a bit of pain behind his thigh, its a bit of a problem when a player asks to come off because it means he knows he cant go on," Blanc said. "Well know a bit more about it tomorrow."

MUNICH, Germany -- Olympic skicross racer Maria Komissarova of Russia remains confident of walking again despite having no feeling in her legs. Komissarova writes on Instagram, "I dont feel my body below my navel. But I am strong and I know that Ill be able to stand on my legs again some day." The 23-year-old Komissarova remains in a Munich rehabilitation centre after breaking her spine at the Sochi Winter Games. She will remain there for at least three months, a spokesman for the Russian freestyle ski federation told the Interfax news agency. Komissarova crashed during a training run on Feb. 15, fracturing the 12th dorsal vertebrae in her lower-middle back.

Summers has seen scant playing time with the Coyotes since being selected 29th overall by the club in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, having played in 47 career NHL games.SAO PAULO - Nico Rosberg finished ahead of his Mercedes teammate and title rival Lewis Hamilton in practice for the Brazilian Grand Prix on Friday.Rosberg was fastest in both sessions, finishing with the best time of the day with a lap of 1 minute, 12.123 seconds at Interlagos. Hamilton was .0213 slower. Kimi Raikkonen of Ferrari was third, about half a second behind Rosberg.The Mercedes drivers are the only two vying for the Formula One title. Hamilton leads Rosberg by 24 points with 75 available going into the last two races.The title will not be decided in Brazil as the season-ending race in Abu Dhabi will be worth double points. Hamilton can win his second world title with consecutive second-place finishes or a third in Brazil and a second in Abu Dhabi on Nov. 23.As they did for most of the season, the Mercedes drivers led throughout the practice sessions, which were run under dry conditions at Interlagos.It was a very normal day for us, Rosberg said. There was a lot of understeer early but after we solved the problem the car was very fast, as always. I liked the result.Hamilton doesnt think he needs to improve a lot to catch up with his teammate.I just need to put a lap together, he said.The newly-resurfaced track offered little grip compared to previous years and was especially slippery in the afternoon under warmer temperatures. Several drivers span and went off the track, including Hamilton a few times.The track is really difficult to drive in these temperatures, he said over the team radio.Both practices had to be briefly red flagged four times, including when Force Indias Spanish test driver Daniel Juncadella crashed into a tire barrier in the first session. He was not injured.There will be another practice on Saturday before qualifying.Fernando Alonso of Ferrari finished seventh but had his day cut short in the second session after his engine appeared to blow up.dddddddddddd The Spaniard had to quickly get out of the car as flames appeared to spread. The incident caused one of the red flags.Raikkonen also went off the track several times in both sessions before managing to finish with the third-fastest time.Home crowd favourite Felipe Massa, a two-time winner in Brazil, finished sixth, one spot behind Williams teammate Valtteri Bottas.Red Bull, which has won four of the last five races in Brazil, struggled in the first session but picked up the pace in the second with Daniel Ricciardo finishing fourth. Sebastian Vettel, who at one point said there were some serious problems with his car, ended ninth.McLarens Jenson Button, still uncertain about his future in F1 next season, had mechanical problems and was the only driver without a timed lap in the first session. He was only 16th in the second.There will be only 18 cars again on the grid this weekend as Marussia and Caterham continue to deal with financial problems. Marussia was shut down on Friday and Caterham launched a crowdfunding project to ease its financial difficulties and return to the grid for the final grand prix.Hamilton is going for his sixth win in a row and 11th in the season, both of which would be a first for a British driver. Rosberg has four victories. Neither driver has won in Brazil.Mercedes has placed 1-2 in 10 of the 17 races this year, and clinched the constructors championship with three races to spare. It has 14 victories between the two drivers, one short of the season record shared by Ferrari and McLaren.The 4.3-kilometre counterclockwise (2.6 mile) Interlagos track has new runoff areas and a new pit entrance and pit exit, all added to improve safety.___Follow Tales Azzoni at http://twitter.com/tazzoni Cheap Chargers Jerseys Cheap Rams Jersey Cheap Dolphins Jerseys Cheap Vikings Jerseys Cheap Patriots Jersey Cheap Saints Jerseys Cheap New York Giants Jerseys Cheap Jets Jerseys Cheap Raiders Jerseys Cheap Eagles Jerseys Cheap Steelers Jerseys Cheap 49ers Jerseys Cheap Seahawks Jerseys Cheap Buccaneers Jerseys Cheap Titans Jerseys Cheap Redskins Jerseys ' ' '

PHOENIX - Aaron Hill drove in three runs and made a game-ending diving stop, Miguel Montero hit a two-run single in the eighth inning and the Arizona Diamondbacks rallied for a 5-4 win over the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night. Trailing 3-2 in the eighth, Detroit went ahead on Torii Hunters two-run single up the middle off Brad Ziegler. Eury De la Rosa (2-0) got the final two outs in the inning and Arizona rallied when Phil Coke (1-2) walked two in the bottom half after being hit by a line drive. The Diamondbacks loaded the bases on a two-out walk and Montero came through with his single up the middle off Ian Krol to put Arizona up 5-4. David Peralta tied a team record with two triples and Hill made his diving stop in the outfield grass to help Addison Reed work around a walk in the ninth for his 24th save. Arizona starter Chase Anderson won his first five starts and lost the next four before allowing a run on seven hits in six innings to beat Miami his last outing on July 7. The rookie right-hander wasnt nearly as sharp against the Tigers, though he was still effective. He allowed run in the first inning on Miguel Cabreras run-scoring single and another on a wild pitch in the third. Anderson worked around baserunners over the next three innings, but didnt give up another run against the ALs best-hitting team. He allowed two runs and five hits and struck out five in six innings. Detroits Rick Porcello bounced back from a rough outing by holding the Royals to a run in seven innings his previous outing. His main trouble against the Diamondbacks was their top two hitters, Peralta and Hill. Hill hit a solo homer in the first inning, his eighth of the season. Peralta hit triples in the third and fifth inning, setting up Hill for a sacrifice fly and an RBI groundout that put Arizona up 3-2 in the fifth. Porcello was good against everyone else, allowing five hits and three runs with five strikeouts. NOTES: Peralta is the fifth Arizona player to have two triples in a game and second rookie, joining Robby Hammock, who did it June 8, 2003, against Cleveland. ... Cabrera has 36 RBIs in 40 career games against Arizona. ... Arizona RHP Trevor Cahill will pitch Wednesday against the Tigers, his second since returning from the minors. He allowed three runs in five innings against the Chicago Cubs in a no-decision on July 18. RHP Anibal Sanchez pitches for Detroit. Reggie Lewis Jersey .J. - Several people have collapsed in an overcrowded New Jersey train station while waiting in long lines to get to the Super Bowl. Gordon Hayward Jersey . With one penalty, Fourcade finished in 24 minutes, 58.2 seconds, just nine-tenths of a second ahead of Timofey Lapshin, who shot clean in the cold. http://www.authenticcelticsproshop.com/Al-Horford-Jersey/. -- Blake Griffin scored 32 points and grabbed eight rebounds, DeAndre Jordan had 14 points and 22 rebounds and the Los Angeles Clippers outlasted the Golden State Warriors 98-96 on Thursday night to take a 2-1 lead in their first-round series. Custom Boston Celtics Jerseys . At a news conference Tuesday where it was thought that the fiery Schallibaum may be shown the door after a dismal finish to the Major League Soccer season, team president Joey Saputo said no decision has been made on whether the Swiss Volcano will be back in 2014. Boston Celtics Gear .com) - The Toronto Raptors set their sights on a second straight victory with the Oklahoma City Thunder visiting the Air Canada Centre tonight riding a two game streak of their own.SINGAPORE - Serena Williams made the semifinals of the WTA Finals and earned the year-end No. 1 ranking without hitting a ball on Friday.Williams fortune was at the expense of Ana Ivanovic and Maria Sharapova. Ivanovic had a shot at reaching the semis, and Sharapova had a slimmer chance at the top ranking. Both won dramatic three-setters, but they needed to win in two, and were eliminated.By the end of the final day of group games, Saturdays semifinals were set: Williams will meet Caroline Wozniacki, and Simona Halep will take on Agnieszka Radwanska.Besides Sharapova and Ivanovic, Petra Kvitova also had her destiny in her own hands and failed to take the opportunity to progress.Sharapova needed to win in straight sets to advance, and had to win the title if she was to topple Williams from the top of the rankings.Sharapova inexplicably collapsed from a set and 5-1 up, missing three match points and losing the second set in a tiebreak to Radwanska. The Russian ultimately prevailed 7-5, 6-7 (4), 6-2 in over three hours but that was not enough, while Radwanska qualified for the semis despite a 1-2 group-stage record.Radwanska was helped by Wozniacki beating Kvitova 6-2, 6-3. Kvitova would have progressed had she won.Ivanovic had to beat Halep in straight sets to advance and knock out Williams. That looked unlikely when Halep came out to serve for the first set at 5-2, yet Ivanovic won four successive games and saved a set point in the tiebreak to win it 7-6 (7).Ivanovic showed further resilience when she broke to get back on serve at 4-3 in the second set yet Halep won the next two games to take the frame, making the final set only for pride and prizemoney. Ivanovic won 7-6 (7), 3-6, 6-3.Williams took the year-end top ranking for the fourth time, beside 2002, 2009 and 2013.Since the rankings began in 1975, only five players have held the No. 1 spot at year end four times or more. The others were Steffi Graf (eight times), Martina Navratilova (seven), Chris Evert (five) and Lindsay Davenport (four).Sharapova, the 2004 champion and two-time runner-up, was left to rue a collapse from a dominant position in the second set against Radwanska, who won five straight games. The Russian said she became too hasty as she tried to close out the match.A little impatient, her doing a good job of retrieving ballls — that is her strength — and going for a little bit more than I should have, Sharapova said in explaining what went wrong in the second set.ddddddddddddI know Im not moving forward but Im proud of that effort, and to finish the year in this way.Wozniacki was already assured of a semifinal berth when she stepped out against Kvitova, while the Czech had to win, yet it was the Danish player who was on top throughout, and finished the group stage as the only player with a perfect 3-0 record.Wozniacki has previously held the No. 1 ranking yet questions have always lingered about her true status as she has never won a Grand Slam tournament or WTA Finals. She has played this week like someone who wants to silence the doubters.I believe in myself and I believe in my skills, Wozniacki said. Ive been playing well, so I believed I could beat anyone.That level of belief may not be quite as high against Williams, with the American boasting a 9-1 head-to-head record, including victory in the U.S. Open final.My matchup against her so far hasnt been great, Wozniacki said. I won once and lost like 10 times, or nine, I dont know. I dont even count anymore.But its a new tournament. Its a new week. Ive been playing well really. Again, I believe that if I play like I did today, doesnt matter whos on the other side. I can win.Haleps defeat against Ivanovic takes only a small amount of the polish off her previous match when she dropped only two games against Williams. The Romanian next meets Radwanska, with the pair having split their two meetings this year, although Halep trails 4-2 overall.She runs a lot on court, and I have to run as well tomorrow, Halep said. I have to be aggressive, very aggressive, because shes an intelligent player, she knows how to open the angles. But I will try everything.Ivanovic finishes the year with the most wins of any player on tour at 58, with four titles.Its mixed emotions because I feel like it was such a great match tonight, yet its such a low not to be able to qualify for the semifinals, Ivanovic said. On a positive note I won two matches, finished the season with a victory. Its been an amazing year for me.Kvitova also exits, but the Wimbledon champion has only a short break. In two weeks she will lead the Czech Republic in the Fed Cup final against Germany.
