DETROIT -- Corey Allen had 16 points to lead five Titans in double figures, and Detroit pulled away from Division III Adrian College in the second half for a 99-69 win in its season opener on Friday night. Cheap Brazil National Jerseys .Detroit led 39-38 at the break and 53-49 with 15:07 left to play before making a run. Allens 3-pointer -- one of four -- pushed the lead to seven, and a 3 from Patrick Robinson with 12:50 remaining made it 66-54 Detroit, the Titans first double-digit lead of the game.Adrian College was held to six points in the final eight minutes.DaVonte Harris, second on last years Bulldogs team with a 16.6 per game scoring average, tallied a game-high 27 points on 11-of-18 shooting, including 5 of 9 on 3-pointers.Bacari Alexander won his first game as head coach for his alma mater. Willian Brazil Jersey . Louis. To which I would say two things: 1. Where there is smoke, there is or perhaps has been a little fire. Or, in other words, the two teams would appear to have at least spoken. And spoken is defined as one calling the other to inquire, no more, no less. Douglas Costa Brazil Jersey . Didier Drogba gave away the penalty that put Senegal one goal away from a major upset, but the veteran striker will get another chance -- probably his last -- at the World Cup after Salomon Kalous injury-time strike sealed the Ivorians place in Brazil next year. .S. -- Nikolaj Ehlers registered a hat trick for the third straight game and Jonathan Drouin had a goal and five assists as the Halifax Mooseheads hammered the host Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 10-1 on Tuesday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action. NFL Nation reporters detail the biggest storylines -- and what they mean going forward -- for every team coming out of Week 14.AFC East | AFC North| AFC South | AFC West NFC East | NFC North | NFC South | NFC WestAFC EASTBuffalo Bills (6-7)Losers of five of their past seven games, the Bills have sunk into uncertainty at both head coach and quarterback. Rex Ryan -- whose job could be in danger by the end of the season, if not sooner -- said after Sundays game that the team [will] see when asked if Tyrod Taylor will remain the starter through the final three games of the season. Ryans noncommittal response could open the door for rookie Cardale Jones to start at quarterback as soon as next Sunday against the Browns. -- Mike RodakWeek 15: vs. Cleveland, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETMiami Dolphins (8-5)The Dolphins won an important game over the Cardinals to improve their playoff chances, but suffered a major loss in QB Ryan Tannehill. The team fears Tannehill suffered an ACL tear in his left knee, which would mean backup Matt Moore would take over for the rest of the season. The Dolphins will have a harder time winning with Moore under center and could have to run the table in the final three weeks in order to make the playoffs. -- James WalkerWeek 15: at New York Jets, Saturday, 8:25 p.m. ETNew England Patriots (10-2)The Patriots play their only Monday night game of the season, and one of the overlooked storylines is if starting cornerback Eric Rowe will play. He has a hamstring injury and is not running at full speed, which could create a big void. If Rowe cant play, Logan Ryan and Cyrus Jones are the top candidates to take his spot. -- Mike ReissWeek 15: at Denver, Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ETNew York Jets (4-9)Bryce Pettys performance was far from clean, but he got his first win as a starter because of toughness and a gunslinger mentality. Surrounded by a patchwork supporting cast, he passed the first test in his four-game audition. Now he has another short week to get ready for the Dolphins, but at least he has energized a team that appeared lifeless. -- Rich CiminiWeek 15: vs. Miami, Saturday, 8:25 p.m. ETAFC NORTHBaltimore Ravens (7-5)The Ravens need to win in New England on Monday night to keep up with the Steelers, who held off the Bills on Sunday. Baltimore, which trails Pittsburgh (8-5) by a half-game, needs another strong performance from QB Joe Flacco to upset the Patriots. In his past three trips to Gillette Stadium, Flacco has averaged 236.8 yards passing and has thrown 13 touchdowns, which are the most by an opposing quarterback there since 2009. -- Jamison HensleyWeek 15: vs. Philadelphia, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETCincinnati Bengals (5-7-1)The Bengals have their first win streak of the season, but we still dont know the capabilities of this team when its playing well on both sides of the ball. The Bengals past two wins have come against the struggling Eagles and Browns. A showdown looms with division rival Pittsburgh, and beating the Steelers would go a long way to salvaging the season. -- Katherine TerrellWeek 15: vs. Pittsburgh, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETCleveland Browns (0-13)The Browns lost for the 13th time in 13 games on Sunday, and for the 31st time in their past 34. Its hardly news that they are not a good team, but Hue Jackson seemed to accept Robert Griffin IIIs struggles, saying the guy who plays quarterback needs understanding. Griffin will start Sunday against Buffalo. -- Pat McManamonWeek 15: at Buffalo, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETPittsburgh Steelers (8-5)The Steelers won their fourth straight game Sunday in Buffalo, but they also honed their winning formula: Run, run, run. LeVeon Bell has 118 carries over the past four games, yet he continues to get stronger and the holes continue to get bigger. Guard David DeCastro said the offensive linemen love the games when they start moving downhill on defensive lines. Fueling this identity will be crucial for cold-weather games the next three weeks. You set a franchise record [236 yards for Bell] in a snow game in December -- I mean, come on, DeCastro said. -- Jeremy FowlerWeek 15: at Cincinnati, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETAFC SOUTHHouston Texans (7-6)Though the Texans had dropped three in a row entering Sundays game against the Colts, the mantra repeated by players and the coaching staff was that Houston controls its own destiny. The Texans took care of the first step by beating the Colts 22-17 for only their second road win of the season to improve to 4-0 in the AFC South. After playing four out of the past five games on the road, the Texans will return to NRG Stadium, where they are 5-1 this season, to play the 2-11 Jaguars. -- Sarah BarshopWeek 15: vs. Jacksonville, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETIndianapolis Colts (6-7)The Colts are no longer in position to control their own destiny after losing the Texans on Sunday. So instead of being in first place in the AFC South, the Colts are now in third place behind Houston and Tennessee in the division. The Colts would have to win their final three games in addition to getting help from Houstons and Tennessees remaining regular-season opponents in order to avoid missing the playoffs in back-to-back seasons for the first time since 1997-98. -- Mike WellsWeek 15: at Minnesota, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETJacksonville Jaguars (2-11)The Jaguars have tied a franchise record with their eighth consecutive loss. It unfolded pretty much the same way the previous seven did: with the defense playing solid football, but unable to come up with a critical stop late, while the offense puts a drive together but cant consistently move the ball. The Jaguars have games against Houston, Tennessee and Indianapolis remaining and could be on their way to tying the worst record in franchise history (2-14). -- Mike DiRoccoWeek 15: at Houston, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETTennessee Titans (7-6)If the Titans win their final three games, they win the AFC South. Unfortunately, the first of those three comes on the road at the 10-3 Chiefs, who will be coming off a mini-bye following a Thursday night game. The Titans beat Denver by running for 180 yards and playing solid defense that included their first two fumble recoveries of the season. Against the Chiefs theyll likely need more from Marcus Mariota and the passing game. -- Paul KuharskyWeek 15: at Kansas City, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETAFC WESTDenver Broncos (8-5)After five consecutive division titles, two Super Bowl trips in the past three years and a seasons worth of taking everyones best shot in what they hoped was a title defense, the Broncos look to be a tired team in need of a second wind. They dropped to 8-5 Sunday with a 13-10 loss to the Titans and face games against New England, Kansas City and Oakland to close things out. The Broncos likely need to win two, and possibly all three, to make the postseason. And thatll be a tall order if they cannot clean up the season-long problems in the offensive line and running game. -- Jeff LegwoldWeek 15: vs. New England, Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ETKansas City Chiefs (10-3)The Chiefs get back to work on Monday, eyeing the possibility of a couple of big prizes: the AFC West championship and the AFCs No. 1 overall playoff seed. The finishing three-game stretch begins on Sunday against the Titans, who could represent a trap game of sorts. Tennessee falls in between Kansas Citys Thursday night win over the Raiders and a Christmas night rematch with the Broncos. Coach Andy Reid acknowledged recently the difficulty of facing the Falcons in between games against the Broncos and Raiders. -- Adam TeicherWeek 15: vs. Tennessee, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETOakland Raiders (10-3)The Raiders, as QB Derek Carr said in the aftermath of their 21-13 loss at Kansas City on Thursday night, were punched in the mouth by the Chiefs. How they respond after a mini-bye and weekend off will tell the tale for Oakland, which is awaiting word on a potential reinstatement of OLB Aldon Smith and saw its playoff seeding fall from No. 1 in the AFC to No. 5 and a wild card with the loss to the Chiefs. Up next? Another division rivalry game on the road, at San Diego. And the question: Who will do the punching this weekend? -- Paul GutierrezWeek 15: at San Diego, Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ETSan Diego Chargers (5-8)The Chargers arent going anywhere because of the teams injury-plagued season, so it doesnt really matter much. Still, QB Philip Rivers has turned the ball over 12 times in his past four games, including five turnovers in a road loss to the Panthers on Sunday. Head coach Mike McCoy quickly answered no when asked if he considered benching his veteran signal-caller. And while replacing Rivers with Kellen Clemens likely isnt the answer, McCoy and the Chargers have to figure out a way for the offense to hold on to the football and stop putting the defense in tough situations. -- Eric D. WilliamsWeek 15: vs. Oakland, Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ETNFC EASTDallas Cowboys (11-2)The Cowboys have picked the wrong time to struggle with their third down. Against Minnesota last week, they converted on just 1-of-9 third-down attempts. In Sunday nights loss to the Giants they converted just one of their 15 third-down attempts. The Cowboys have had too many mistakes that have left them behind the chains in third down. Coach Jason Garrett likes to say the best way to be good on third down is to be good on first and second down. In their last two games the Cowboys haave not been do much after converting nearly 50 percent of the time in their first 11 games of the season. Thiago Silva Brazil Jersey. -- Todd ArcherNew York Giants (9-4)With every team in the NFC wild-card hunt winning on Sunday, the Giants desperately needed to keep pace. It didnt seem likely, until they were saved by Odell Beckham Jr. Now, the Giants remain the NFC wild-card leader with three games remaining. One more win against Detroit, Philadelphia and Washington, and theyre in good shape. Two and they almost certainly end their four-year playoff drought. -- Jordan RaananPhiladelphia Eagles (5-8)Its all about survival right now for the Eagles, who are losers of four straight and eight of 10. Coach Doug Pederson has to avoid a total collapse down the stretch. His team did play inspired football against the Redskins on Sunday following a lifeless loss to Cincinnati the week prior. If nothing else, his team needs to show some fight over the next three games. -- Tim McManusWeek 15: at Baltimore, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETWashington Redskins (7-5-1)TE Jordan Reeds impact over the next three weeks will be a key point of interest. Reed was a nonfactor in his first game back playing with a Grade 3 separation of the AC joint in his left shoulder. He didnt play much in the second half in the win over the Eagles, as the Redskins dont want him to take much pounding. The shoulder will continue to bother him moving forward. The Redskins can survive without Reed being a huge factor, but when he is one theyre a better offense. -- John KeimWeek 15: vs. Carolina, Monday, 8:30 p.m. ETNFC NORTHChicago Bears (3-10)Matt Barkley deserved better. Making his first NFL road start, Barkley went 20-of-32 for 212 yards and one touchdown (92.2 pass rating) in Chicagos 20-17 loss to Detroit, including several big-time throws on the games final drive. Unfortunately, the Bears committed multiple costly holding penalties and dropped a key pass on fourth down that erased Barkleys heroics. The good news for Barkley is that former Pro Bowl WR Alshon Jeffery returns from a four-game PED suspension on Monday. Jeffery should have plenty of motivation over the final three weeks. He can reach free agency in the offseason if the Bears refuse to apply the franchise tag for a second straight year. -- Jeff DickersonWeek 15: vs. Green Bay, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETDetroit Lions (9-4)The Lions are going to be paying attention to the right middle finger of Matthew Stafford this week after he injured it in a 20-17 come-from-behind win over the Bears. Stafford has been the Lions leader this season and a legitimate MVP candidate. He struggled while playing with a glove, but also led a game-winning touchdown drive when it mattered the most to keep Detroit two games up in the NFC North with three to play. It also clinched the Lions second winning season in three years under Jim Caldwell. -- Michael RothsteinWeek 15: at New York Giants, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETGreen Bay Packers (7-6)Aaron Rodgers said he wont know until Wednesday if the right calf injury he sustained in Sundays win over the Seahawks is as bad as the left one he suffered in 2014, but at least he feels better about the Packers situation than he did coming into the game. Even though theyre two games out of first place in the NFC North with three to play, Rodgers said he feels strong to quite strong about the Packers playoff chances after the way they handled Seattle. -- Rob DemovskyWeek 15: at Chicago, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETMinnesota Vikings (7-6)As ugly as it might have been, the Vikings win over the Jaguars did some important work for the teams psyche. It was just the second time the Vikings had won since Oct. 9, and cornerback Captain Munnerlyn said after the game he could see the teams confidence waning as the losses started to mount. The Vikings are still in the playoff race as they head home to face the Colts, and as they prepare for one of their final two home games, a boost of confidence might help them shake some of the issues they had Sunday. -- Ben GoesslingWeek 15: vs. Indianapolis, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETNFC SOUTHAtlanta Falcons (8-5)The Falcons 42-14 win over the Rams showed they could win without their best player on the field: Julio Jones. The receiver missed the game with a turf toe injury, though he was intent on playing. An outstanding defensive effort by Vic Beasley Jr., taking advantage of turnovers, and other receiver options stepping up for Matt Ryan with Jones and Mohamed Sanu (groin) sidelined made the difference. The win could entice Falcons coach Dan Quinn to hold Jones out at least another week, with the 1-12 49ers next on the schedule. The Falcons are still tied atop the NFC South with the Buccaneers. -- Vaughn McClureWeek 15: vs. San Francisco, Sunday, 4:05 p.m. ET?Carolina Panthers (5-8)The Panthers finally got the kind of game against San Diego they were hoping for from their young secondary with two rookie corners working with a veteran defensive front. Now, a week of what-ifs in terms of what Carolinas season would look like if the Panthers had not rescinded the franchise tag of cornerback Josh Norman is ahead, with a Monday night game at Washington next on the schedule. -- David NewtonWeek 15: at Washington, Monday, 8:30 p.m. ETNew Orleans Saints (5-8)It seems crazy now that the playoffs felt like a realistic option for the Saints just two weeks ago. Since then, they have given their two worst performances of the year, with Drew Brees throwing a stunning six interceptions with zero touchdown passes. At the very least, it felt like the Saints were a young team on the rise two weeks ago, with a 2017 playoff run as the big-picture goal. But theyll have to play awfully well over the next three?weeks to regain their optimism after a third straight season of .500 or worse. -- Mike Triplett?Week 15: at Arizona, Sunday, 4:05 p.m. ETTampa Bay Buccaneers (8-5)The Bucs 16-11 win over the Saints?extends their win streak to five games and keeps them tied with the Falcons?for first place in the NFC South. The defense picked off Drew Brees three times and has gone from giving up an average of 29 points per game in Weeks 1-9, fourth most in the league, to 13.25 in Weeks 10-14, the fewest in the league. The Bucs have forced 11 turnovers in that span, second most in the league. Whatever soul-searching Mike Smith did after that Falcons game, its clearly paid off. This is a red-hot team. -- Jenna LaineWeek 15: at Dallas, Sunday, 8:30 p.m. ETNFC WESTArizona Cardinals (5-7-1)Mother Nature rained all over the Cardinals playoff hopes. Torrential downpours were scattered throughout Arizonas 26-23 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday. The loss dropped Arizona to 5-7-1 and all but out of the playoff picture. The Cardinals havent been mathematically eliminated with three games left, but its highly unlikely at this point that they can get enough help from the teams ahead of them to sneak into the postseason. But the Cardinals have no one to blame but themselves, and they know that. Self-inflicted wounds continued to haunt them Sunday, especially on special teams, where they missed a PAT and field goal, and had another PAT blocked and returned by Miami for two points. -- Josh WeinfussWeek 15: vs. New Orleans, Sunday, 4:05 p.m. ETLos Angeles Rams (4-9)Jeff Fishers job status seems more tenuous than ever now, after the Rams embattled coach suffered a 42-14 thrashing at the hands of the Falcons that gave his team eight losses in a span of nine games and himself 165 career defeats, tying Dan Reeves for the NFL record. Rams players defended Fisher after the game, blaming their woes on constant mistakes and lamenting the fact that Fisher faces so much criticism. Still, itll be hard to justify bringing Fisher back if the Rams season continues to spiral. -- Alden GonzalezWeek 15: at Seattle, Thursday, 8:25 p.m. ETSan Francisco 49ers (1-12)The 49ers seemed well on their way to finally breaking their 11-game losing streak on Sunday against the Jets when the same old Niners appeared in the second half. San Francisco blew a two-touchdown lead to lose in overtime, dropping its 12th straight. It wasnt so much that it happened as how it happened that was disturbing. But given the circumstances, a strong case can be made it was the Niners worst loss of the season. Now, they enter their final three games, starting next week in Atlanta, with a realistic chance at a 1-15 season and a top-two pick in the 2017 NFL draft. -- Nick WagonerWeek 15: at Atlanta, Sunday, 4:05 p.m. ETSeattle Seahawks (8-4-1)Russell Wilson and the Seahawks have three days to figure out whats wrong with the offense before the team takes on the Rams Thursday night. The Seahawks turned the ball over six times in their 38-10 loss to the Packers on Sunday. Wilson was uncharacteristically off-target, missing big-play opportunities to Doug Baldwin and Jimmy Graham early. Its the second time in three weeks -- the Seahawks lost 14-5 to the Bucs in Week 12 -- that the offense has looked incompetent. Going into Sundays game, the Seahawks had never lost by more than 10 points during the Wilson-Pete Carroll era. They need to find answers quickly if theyre going to go on a run. -- Sheil KapadiaWeek 15: vs. Los Angeles, Thursday, 8:25 p.m. ET NFL Jerseys Cheap Stitched Jerseys Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Wholesale Throwback Jerseys Discount Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2019 China NFL Hoodies ' ' '

NEW YORK -- The Miami Marlins have put pitcher David Phelps on the 15-day disabled list shortly before his scheduled start.

RALEIGH, N.C. -- North Carolina State coach Dave Doeren will soon find out whether some major offensive changes translate into a step forward for his Wolfpack.Doeren opens his fourth season with the Wolfpack on Thursday night against William & Mary of the Football Championship Subdivision. His offense will have a different look with a new coordinator and a pair of unproven quarterbacks, and his team has spent an offseason working under the leadership of a different strength and conditioning coach.That comes after a 7-6 season with a second straight bowl appearance but a feeling of unmet expectations.The changes I made were changes I thought had to be made, Doeren said. Theyre never easy. . Its not a fun moment. But you do it because you believe whats best for the future of your team and your staff. And I can honestly say I feel like I did the right thing -- not that Ive looked back and doubt myself.New offensive coordinator Eli Drinkwitz worked with former Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn and was Boise States coordinator last season. He brings a scheme sure to pick up the pace in Raleigh.But the Wolfpacks offseason battle to replace Jacoby Brissett as starting quarterback hasnt settled on a long-term answer. Either Jalan McClendon or graduate transfer Ryan Finley -- both are redshirt sophomores -- will take the first snap Thursday night, but Doeren isnt promising anything more than the first series to the starter and said both will play.The Tribe will present a veteran challenge. Ranked No. 10 in the FCS coaches poll, William & Mary enters the season with 16 starters and 10 all-conference performers back from a team that claimed a share of the Colonial Athletic Association title.You cant dwell on what happened last year because obviously it was a very good year but its a different team, longtime Tribe coach Jimmye Laycock said. This years team has got to set their own identity.---Here are things to know about Thursdays William & Mary-N.C. State gameQB ROTATION: Doeren wouldnt commit to a specific rotation for McClendon and Finley, but it sounds like the positiion battle isnt over. Zapatillas Nike Vapormax Hombre. Doeren said that the team has settled on the starter and wont reveal it publicly, but added the winner isnt necessarily the starter for the full season. I dont know how many reps well get, McClendon said, but were both playing.KICKING BATTLE: Quarterback isnt the Wolfpacks only unsettled position. Sophomore Kyle Bambard and graduate transfer Connor Haskins are vying to be the top placekicker. Bambard struggled last season by making 7 of 14 field goals, a 50-percent conversion rate that was last in the NCAAs Bowl Subdivision national ranks. Doeren said both guys would kick but wont publicly announce a starter.IN THE TRENCHES: The key battle will come up front. William & Marys line boasts three seniors and two juniors, including three all-conference picks, blocking for team captain Steve Cluley at quarterback and tailback Kendell Anderson. But Anderson is questionable with a shoulder injury and the Wolfpacks defensive front is a strength. Its pretty much going to come down to your quarterback and offensive line, Laycock said. Thats what makes you go.RUN IT: The Wolfpacks deep backfield is led by senior Matt Dayes, who had run for 12 touchdowns and was within reach of becoming the programs first 1,000-yard rusher since 2002 before missing the five games with a foot injury. And Drinkwitz has proven at his previous coaching stops hes more than willing to run the ball, so dont be surprised to see the Wolfpack go heavy on the ground game.FAST STARTS: N.C. State has won its opener in each of Doerens first three years and has started 4-0 in each of the past two.

For much of the day it seemed the school girls in the stands in Visakhapatnam were screaming for their heroes in the India team. Seahawks Jerseys China . But as the last session unfolded, with England losing three top-order wickets for eight runs at one stage, the thought occurred that they might have been screaming in horror at Englands prospects in this match. Perhaps the pitch of the screaming had changed or perhaps, after several hours subjected to it, the mentality of those listening had.Or maybe the noise was just the soul of the England team. For England are in desperate trouble in this game. Already, with only two days of the game gone, they need a miracle of biblical proportions to save them. Rain wont come to their rescue - its not due to rain here until January - and, it says much for their predicament, that their best hope of saving this game really might be a plague of locusts. Or, seeing as it is Vizag, dogs.It would be disingenuous not to acknowledge that losing the toss in these circumstances is a substantial disadvantage. India took advantage of the pitch at its best for batting and England were condemned to replying as the deterioration began. Already, some good-length deliveries that batsmen might expect to play at hip height are scuttling along the deck and some deliveries are turning sharply. It will only grow more difficult for batsmen. It is fiendishly tough and any criticism of them has to be tempered by that knowledge.Theres no future in feeling sorry for themselves, though. Such challenges are part of the experience of touring India, just as dealing with green pitches is part of the challenge of touring England. England won the toss in the first Test in Rajkot - albeit not with just such disproportionate consequences - and they may yet win a toss later in the series with similar results.Besides, it would be quite wrong to accept the inevitability of future events from the moment the toss is taken. Had England placed a better fielder for their hook trap and had they placed a gully for the second new ball, it is entirely possible Indias total would be substantially smaller. You have to give the India batsmen credit, too. Virat Kohli has long been established as a great limited-overs player and he is well on the way to proving his class in the longest format. At times, he looks almost impossibly good. You suspect his bat will cause England a lot more pain before this series is done.Most of all, England had the opportunity to bat on the second afternoon when the conditions might be termed tricky rather than impossible. They had the chance to show they had learned from Dhaka, taken confidence from Rajkot and were able to put all that into action.There were some encouraging moments. Haseeb Hameed dealt comfortably with some good pace bowling by Indias seamers - including a few more short balls - and Ben Stokes demonstrated his tighter technique against spin. And there was the sight of Joe Root playing the ball off the back foot with a straight bat to try and adjust to the spin and variable bounce. For a while, he did it very well.But Test cricket isnt about batting nicely for a while. It is not about cameos and half-centuries. And Root knows that as well as anyone.His dismissal here - attempting to hit R Ashwin over the top but instead finding the fielder at long-off - probably looked worse than it was. Kohli had just moved long-on to mid-on and the previous ball had spun pretty sharply into Root pads. So the shot was just about on and, had it proved successful, we might have praised Roots positive intent and his refusal to allow Ashwin to settle.Instead, Ashwin persuaded the ball to drift away from the bat (it may have been natural variation, but he is a terrific bowler so let us give him the credit) and Root was only able to make contact with the outside third of his bat. It didnt look pretty but it wasnt such an unreasonable ploy. And perhaps we have to remind ourselves that Root is only 25. He will not need telling that the risk-reward ratio was not good. He will not need telling that this was a day for nudges and rotation and defence rather than such counter-attacking.That was exactly the message of Paul Farbrace, Englands assistant coach, at the close of play. When a high-quality player like Joe gets to fifty and gets out, it is massively disappointing, Farbrace said. And it looks a whole lot worse when you get out that way. But if he hit that one bounce for four down the ground then we say great shot.But this is a time when Joe will look back and say he could have done things better. He does not need telling.Nor will Alastair Cook - who was the victim of a magnificent delivery that looked as if it was passing outside off stump, but crept back and beat his forward push - or Moeen Ali, who thought that coming down the pitch would save him from not knowing how much the ball would spin but became the latest victim of a DRS decision that would never have been out a few years ago.There will be more worry about Ben Ducketts dismissal. For the third time in six Test innings he fell in strikingly similar fashion: placing his front foot on - or even outside - leg stump and nowhere near the pitch of the ball to allow himself the opportunity to hit an offspinner through the off side, he was bowled when the turn took the delivery away and into the top of off stump. He was bowled in similar fashion by Mehedi Hasan in Chittagong and edged to slip off Ashwin in Rajkot.It was always asking a lot of Duckett to cope with the spin on this tour. Spin plays a peripheral part in the lower division of the County Championship - only one spinner in the entire division managed even 25 wickets in 2016 and that was his Northants team-mate, Rob Keogh - and he will never have experienced conditions like this. Or bowlers so adept at exploiting them.But Farbrace was having none of that. Pointing to Stokes as an example of a man who has learned to deal with such challenges, Farbrace insisted Duckett had to find a way to cope. Wherever in the world you go to, there will always be something different to your home, Farbrace said. And the best players in the world adapt quickly. Thats why Root and Cook have runs all around the world. Now Stokes is showing he has got the capacity to adapt and play in different conditions.Our younger players have got to find a way to adapt cope with the conditions. And of course we would love to have more spinning wickets and more spin bowlers in England. Thats something we are always looking to address. Same as Australians are looking to address the swinging and seaming ball. Every team around the world are always looking at ways to improve the way they are playing.We are not panicking over Ben but we know, and he knows, that he has to find a way to cope. It is a massive step going from playing for Northants to facing Ashwin on a wicket in India that is turning and bouncing. You have to be able to adapt your game or any chink in your armoury, top players exploit it.It leaves England facing a tricky decision. Should they replace Duckett for the third Test or stick with him in the hope he can improve his technique during the course of the series? Both actions risk damaging his confidence, but Englands only other options on the tour are Jos Buttler - who has played only one first-class match since he was dropped a year ago - and Gary Ballance, who was dropped in Rajkot after a grim run of form.While recent history would suggest England will give Duckett more opportunities - James Vince, for example, was given seven Tests to prove himself without making a half-century - it is asking a great deal to tinker with his technique during such a condensed Test series. Aged 22, he has the time - and the talent - to reinvent himself. He also has the second innings.Hes practised extremely hard, Farbrace said. He has had long sessions against spin and he has made an adjustment already on this trip. But the danger is you dont want to be offering too many changes to a young player. You brought him into the side because he is talented, because he has got runs, and you have to trust him to play his way.Hes also got to trust himself to … have a solid defence so that when you do get a bad ball, you can put it away. Getting 13s, 15s, 20s, 30s are not good enough. He knows that. But hes got to find a way of improving and keep working on his defensive technique.Most all, Farbrace made it clear that he would accept no excuses from any of the England side. There are bound to be challenges like this in India. England either learn to deal with them or they settle for a place among the also-rans of world cricket.Theres no point bleating and making excuses, he said. We didnt show enough fight. Those are times when we need to show a bit more resilience and get stuck in. It was a bad session. We have to find a way to cut that out if were serious about being one of the best teams in the world. Seahawks Jerseys Authentic China . Carey Price didnt, but he still came out on top against one of his rivals for the No. 1 job at the Sochi Games.

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Vikings made it official on Wednesday afternoon that Teddy Bridgewaters season is over.The Vikings placed their third-year quarterback on injured reserve Wednesday after Bridgewater suffered a catastrophic knee injury on a noncontact play in practice on Tuesday afternoon.While dropping back to pass early in the team portion of the Vikings final preseason practice, Bridgewater sustained a complete tear of his ACL and dislocated his knee, leading the Vikings athletic training staff to rush him to the hospital via a Hennepin County Medical Center ambulance. Bridgewater will have surgery in the next several days, the team announced in a statement Tuesday evening, and could require up to a year to recover from the injury.With Bridgewater heading to injured reserve, the Vikings re-signed quarterback Brad Sorensen, whom they had added to the roster after Bridgewater was held out of the teams second preseason game in Seattle on Aug. 18 with a sore shoulder.Sorensen, who had been released by the Vikings on Monday, is back on the roster ahead of the teams final preseason game on Thursday night against the Los Angeles Rams. Cheap Seahawks Jerseys China. With Shaun Hill in line to be the Vikings starting quarterback for now, Sorensen and Joel Stave could get most of the work against the Rams on Thursday.While the Vikings could look to add another veteran quarterback in the next few days, theyll face major decisions about Bridgewaters future in the coming months. The team has to determine whether to pick up Bridgewaters fifth-year option next May; the Vikings could exercise the option and still release Bridgewater with no penalty before the third day of the 2018 league year.But if the Vikings do pick up the option and Bridgewater suffers another injury that keeps him out in 2018, his fifth-year option would be guaranteed. That option amount, for quarterbacks taken outside the top 10 of the first round, was $11.36 million.

CALGARY, Alberta -- Marcus Johansson had quite a weekend for the Washington Capitals. Wilmar Barrios Colombia Jersey .Johansson scored twice Sunday night, leading the Capitals to a 3-1 vicotry over the Calgary Flames. The previous night, he had two goals and an assist in a win at Vancouver.Sometimes they find a way to go in and sometimes you struggle a little bit, said Johansson, who has five goals and a team-leading nine points. I guess Ill take it and move on and hopefully it keeps going.The reigning Presidents Trophy winners had lost two straight before the 5-2 win over the Canucks.Its big for us to come back and get those points. Were never happy with losing, and especially not when were not playing well, Johansson said.Brett Connolly also scored for Washington, Jay beagle had two assists, and Braden Holtby stopped 21 shots.Connolly opened the scoring 2:01 into the game and Johansson redirected Alex Ovechkins snap pass on the power play at 7:14 to double the lead and give the Capitals two goals on their first four shots.Great pass by Ovie. He hit me right on the tape. I just had to put my stick there, Johansson said.Mikael Backlund scored his first of the season for Calgary, and Brian Elliott had 26 saves while ending a three-game win streak.Chronic poor starts at home are becoming a concern for the Flames, who have lost four of six at the Scotiabank Saddledome.We have to find a way to play way better at home and have better starts, Backlund said. Its our barn.Backlund pulled the Flames within one with 6:16 remaining in the first as he whipped a shot inside the far post from near the boards.Calgary had two power plays in the second to try and tie it but were unable to generate any dangerous chances.I was disappointed with our execution, Flames coach Glen Gulutzan said. Just throwing each other grenades, it seemed like. We didnt generate, we didnt get any momentum from those.Both goalies made some stellar saves in the second period. First, it was Holtby kicking out a pad to deny Micheal Ferland from 15 feet out.Elliott, was especially sharp during a power play. First he scrambled across to thwart Ovechkin at the side of the net. Shortly after, he threw up his glove to stab John Carlsons blast from the blue line.Another big glove stop for Elliott came in the first. Keeping the Flames within two goals, he snagged a hard shot from Nate Schmidt.Backlund socred just 11 seconds later.Backlund had one of Calgarys best chances to tie it in the third when the puck squirted out to him in front, but he wasnt able to get very much wood on it.I was going the other way, and I had to shift the other way and the puck was just a little too far away, he said.Calgary now departs on a four-game road trip to Chicago, San Jose, Los Angeles and Anaheim.This is a huge road trip obviously, Flames captain Mark Giordano said. We cant dwell on this one too long. Weve got to learn from it, get going again. We had two big wins on the road earlier in the week. Hopefully we can carry some of that into the next few games.Game notes The Capitals have outscored teams 11-4 in the first period this season. Theyve also scored first in seven of their eight games. ... The Flames play 11 of their next 15 games on the road. ... Ferland and Sam Bennett each had his four-game point streak snapped.UP NEXTCapitals: At Winnipeg on Tuesday night to complete a four-game road trip.Flames: At Chicago on Tuesday night.

MADISON, Wis. Seattle Seahawks Rasheem Green Jersey . -- University of Wisconsin-Madison officials have revoked season tickets for two football fans who wore a costume that involved one wearing masks of President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton with a noose around their necks.The other wore a Donald Trump mask and led the first man around by the noose.The unidentified men wore the costume at the Oct. 29 game against Nebraska.The Wisconsin State Journal reported ( ) that Chancellor Rebecca Blank told the faculty senate Monday the tickets were revoked because their holder brought in a prohibited item and didnt follow directions from stadium staff.Security officers asked the men to remove the noose but photos taken later showed they had put the noose back on.

The defence is doing its part, too. Drew Brees threw a pair of touchdown passes in the first half and the guys on the other side made sure that was enough, sending the Saints to a 17-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night. . Collaros, 25, was solid last season, posting a 5-2 record as the starter while incumbent Ricky Ray was injured. Collaros also started Torontos 23-20 regular-season finale loss to Montreal — Ray didnt dress because the Argos had already clinched first in the East Division — but was one of three quarterbacks to play that day. SUNRISE, Fla. -- Tuukka Rask is certainly a welcome sight in net for the Boston Bruins.Rask stopped 33 shots to help lead the Bruins to a 2-1 victory over the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night. Rask made his second start after missing three games with an injury and has been in goal for all five of the Bruins wins this season.Ive felt good all along, Rask said. Probably just because of the chances we gave up (on penalties), I had to make more saves, but I felt good all along.Brad Marchand and Dominic Moore scored to lead the Bruins to their second straight after a three-game skid.He looked good tonight and the main reason were standing here with two points, Bruins coach Claude Julien said of Rask.Denis Malgin scored for the Panthers and Roberto Luongo had 24 saves in Floridas fourth loss in five games.Trailing 2-0, the Panthers got on the scoreboard on Malgins first NHL goal with 4:35 left in the third when his shot from the slot beat Rask. It snapped the Bruins goalies shutout streak of 131:11.I had many chances and I didnt score, Malgin said. Now, I finally scored. Its nice, but we lost and thats bad.The Panthers pulled their goalie with 3:20 left during a power play to give them a 6-on-4 advantage but couldnt score.We had a lot of chances in that first period and couldnt capitalize and Tuukka Rask was the difference, Panthers coach Gerard Gallant said. He played a great game.Marchand gave the Bruins a 1-0 lead with his goal on the penalty shot 3:53 in. Reilly Smith was called for hooking Marchand from behind. Marchand then skated in on Luongo and put the puck over his glove for his 300th NHL point. Marchand is now 4 for 5 on penalty shots in his career.The Bruins were outshot 13-33 in the first period. Seattle Seahawks Jerseys For Sale. We had so many turnovers, it was a real bad start, it was a bad period, Julien said. Those are the kind of starts we are trying to avoid. We had a goaltender that was ready to play and kept us in there.The Bruins made it 2-0 on a short-handed goal by Moore at 6:16 of the second. Moores angle shot from below the left circle rolled in and out of the net so quickly that the goal light didnt go off and play continued, but an officials review a few seconds later determined the puck had crossed the goal line before it came out.Sometimes you can surprise a goalie from those kinds of angles and you try to release it quick and you never know, Moore said. It was just fortunate that it found its way.The Panthers were on the power play seven times but couldnt score as they managed only six shots, and gave up the short-handed goal to Moore in the second.That hurt, Gallant said. They scored a short-handed goal also. It definitely hurt. We got outworked on our power play and that was the bottom line.Game notes Florida RW Jaromir Jagr played in his 1,639th NHL game, tying him with Dave Andreychuk for sixth on the all-time list. ... Panthers RW Jonathan Marchessault, 25, has been named the NHLs third star for October, tying for the league lead with six goals and adding five assists in nine games. ...

SAINTE-MARIE-DU-MONT, France -- Minutes after pulling on the yellow jersey for the first time in his award-filled career, Mark Cavendish walked over to the Utah Beach Peace Monument and placed a white rose to commemorate the Allied landings in Normandy that took place there more than 70 years ago. Cheap Giants T-shirts .It was a memorable moment that crowned a day full of emotions for the British cyclist, who won a sprint at the end of the crash-affected opening stage of the Tour de France and took the overall lead on Saturday.It was Cavendishs 27th stage win in the French classic -- third on the all-time list behind Eddy Merckx (34) and Bernard Hinault (28) -- but he had never won the opening leg, which is often a time trial.Cavendish has already worn the leaders jerseys at the Giro dItalia and the Spanish Vuelta.Its going be a special day tomorrow to ride a stage in yellow, Cavendish said. There was no better place to achieve this than Utah Beach where soldiers died for us.Its an incredible opportunity to remember and respect not just those that fought and died on D-Day but fought and died across all the wars and brought freedom to the Western world, he added.After the stage, Cavendish joined a specially invited group of American, Canadian, French, Belgian and German riders for a ceremony at the Peace Monument.German rival Marcel Kittel and Slovakian Peter Sagan finished second and third, respectively, in the 188-kilometer (117-mile) picturesque stage, which began at Mont-Saint-Michel, a World Heritage Benedictine abbey perched on a rock off the Normandy coast.Two years ago, Cavendish was the overwhelming favorite to win the opening stage and take yellow when the Tour opened on his home roads in England. But he crashed during the sprint, separated his right shoulder, and had to withdraw from the race.Once dominant, Cavendish has also struggled to keep up with rivals like Kittel and Andre Greipel in recent years. The 31-year-old joined South African team Dimension Data for this season after shoulder surgery in September.Ever since 2008 its been the end of me. I guess thats just how it is -- something to talk about, Cavendish said. I would stay home if I didnt think I could win.Cavendish was behind Sagan and Kittel entering the final 150 meters, but Kittel went around Sagan on the left and Cavendish slipped by on the right and easily surged in front.Pushed by a strong tail wind of up to 70 kph (43 mph), the leaders required slightly more than four hours to reach the finish.Two-time Tour winner Alberto Contador crashed midway through the stage and several riders were involved in an ugly high-speed crash on the final straight.Contador hit a traffic curb while coming around a right turn. The Spaniard came away with some serious abrasions and had his jersey ripped on his back and right shoulder, but he was quickly helped back to the peloton by his Tinkoff teammates.Im bruised all down along my right side from my ankle up but at least I dont have to go home, Contador said. Hopefully I can get through the coming days and recover before the mountains.Defending champion Chris Froome and the other overall favorites finished safely in the main pack.In the overall standings, Cavendish leads Kittel by four seconds with Sagan six seconds behind, courtesy of time bonuses.Cavendish has won virtually everything there is to win for a sprinter in cycling, including gold medals at both the road world championships and the track worlds.Cav, as he is known, will be aiming to tick off one final box when he aims for gold on the track at the upcoming Rio de Janeiro Olympics.The opening-day route also passed through Sainte-Mere-Eglise, where American paratrooper John Steele dangled from a clock tower after his parachute got caught during the invasion, and survived. The town is now home to the Airborne Museum.The stage included two mild Category 4 climbs in the opening 40 kilometers (25 miles), but was otherwise a mostly flat and rolling route along the English Channel coast.The Tour remains in Normandy for Stage 2 on Sunday, a slightly more challenging 183-kilometer (114-mile) leg from Saint-Lo to Cherbourg-En-Cotentin---AP Sports Writer Samuel Petrequin contributed to this report.---Andrew Dampf on Twitter: Discount Cheap Giants Hoodies .ca. Kerry, Just watched the shootout in the Coyotes/Leafs game and I have to ask, why was the James van Riemsdyk goal allowed to count?

Promotion-chasing Burnley, who are yet to lose a league game in 2016, host Rovers on Saturday looking for a first home victory over their Lancashire rivals since 1978.The Clarets head into this weekends round of fixtures sat top of the Sky Bet Championship but, with second and third-placed Hull and Middlesbrough playing before them, they could find themselves as low as third in table come Saturday lunchtime. However, despite admitting his sides determination to beat Blackburn, Vokes was keen to stress Burnley would not let the hostility associated with a derby distract from the clubs promotion hopes.This derby feels significant, it always does, you can feel the build-up around the training ground in the week leading to the derby, he told the FL72 Podcast.But there are a load of big games coming up for us in the Championship race so, at the minute, were focusing on it as another big game in a good season. FL72 Podcast - Sam Vokes, Liam Rosenior and Conor Coady Blackburn played an extra game this week, which was a tough one against Middlesbrough, but Im sure theyll be as up for this game as we are. Theyll be ready for the game on Saturday just as much as we will be.Every derby I have been involved in has been a big occasion and this one on Saturday is another massive one. We got the result at Ewood Park earlier in the year and that was a big result for the fans and the team at the time, well be looking to replicate that.It would be massive to get on win. Since I have been at Burnley we have been on a run of draws at home against Blackburn so it would be fantastic to win. Burnley claimed a 1-0 victory over Blackburn at Ewood Park in the sides last outing You could see what it meant to the fans when we won away twice, so to do that at home would be a great feeling. Paulo Dybala France Jersey. A serious knee injury ruled Vokes out of Burnleys run-in to promotion in 2014, with the striker subsequently missing a large chunk of the Clarets top-flight campaign in 2014/15.And the 26-year-old is keen to play a greater role in the clubs promotion bid this time around, adding: The last time we got promoted it was a great season, it was great to be involved in. This derby feels significant. It would be massive to win. We got the result at Ewood Park earlier in the year and that was a big result for the fans and the team at the time, we’ll be looking to replicate that. Burnley striker Sam Vokes I picked up the injury towards the end of that season and missed most of the year in the Premier League so it would be fantastic to repeat that and get back there.There is a long way to go before that though, so we are just concentrating on getting there.There is a completely different expectation on our shoulders this season compared to last time because we were the surprise package that year and no one really expected us to stay up there and we did all season. It was a great achievement in that way but this year people look at us in a different light. Coming to Turf Moor, were more of a scalp than we were that year as people have seen we were a Premier League club last year, so the games are obviously bigger.It was tough at the start of this season to deal with that but, as the season has gone, we have started to show what we are all about.Watch Burnley v Blackburn live on Saturday, 12.30pm, Sky Sports 1 & 5 HD Also See: FL72 Podcast Championship video Fixtures Table NFL Jerseys Cheap Stitched Jerseys Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Wholesale Throwback Jerseys Discount Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2019 China NFL Hoodies ' ' '

Captain Charlotte Edwards struck 60 off 50 balls as England Women launched their World Twenty20 campaign in style with a 36-run mauling of Bangladesh, in Bangalore. Air Max 95 Og . Edwards struck seven fours in her 11th fifty in T20 internationals - her first half-century in the format in 11 innings, since the unbeaten 75 made against South Africa at Northampton in September 2014.After England posted 153-7 Bangladesh fell well short despite posting their highest ever T20 score of 117-6 thanks to a new record fifth-wicket partnership of 64 between Salma Khatun and Nigar Sultana (35) - a stand broken by a neatly-executed Sarah Taylor stumping, made standing up to Anya Shrubsole (2-27).England went on the offensive after winning the toss; Tammy Beaumont (18 off 14) put on 34 in 4.1 overs with Edwards - lofting Salma for a glorious six over long on - before being bowled on the charge, looking to hit Jahanara Alam (3-32) across the line.Sarah Taylor (nine) struggled to find fluency despite an early scoop for two and was stumped by Sultana off Fahima Khatun as she attempted to force the pace.Two balls later Heather Knight drove a low catch back to Khadija Tul Kubra but from 71-3 Edwards pressed on to reach her fifty off 41 balls.The captain enjoyed a reprieve three runs later when the capped Salma shelled a routine caught and bowled chance and had another escape on 57 when Jahanara couldnt quite get across at extra cover.Nat Sciver (27 off 22), herself dropped at midwicket by Rumana off Salma on 26, couldnt make the most of the reprieve and picked out long on as she sought to go over the top.Danni Wyatt and Katherine Brunt kept up Scivers momentum after Edwards walked past a Rumana Ahmed delivery before falling to successive Jahanara deliveries at the end of the innings.Bangladesh, who had never scored more than 115 in a Twenty20, struggled from the first over of their chase - a wicket maiden in which Brunt (1-17) bowled Sharmin Akhter leg stump.Anya Shrubsole, currently No 1 in the T20 rankings, should also have struck in her opening over but Wyatt shelled a straightforward chance offered by Fargana Hoque before shed scored.The seamer swiftly made amends, forcing Ayasha Rahman to drive to Edwards at mid-off and 14-2 became 38-3 when Danielle Hazell (1-20), second to Shrubsole in the world standings, removed Fargana Hoque (19).Edwards impressive all-round display was capped when she slid, gathered and shied with success to run Rumana (19) out with a direct hit.England captain Charlotte Edwards: Its always nice to start with runs but the win is the most important thing. We got a good total and even though there is a bit we can do with our bowling and fielding it was a good all-round performance and run out. I will be talking about my run out and catch for some time!England coach Mark Robinson: I thought we were a bit safe on a really good wicket and lost our way and our intent in the middle overs - we dont want to be like that. We were also a bit lazy with our decision-making with the ball but maybe its good to leave a bit in the tank.Watch highlights of England Womens victory over Bangladesh Women at 6pm on Sky Sports 2.

On Friday afternoon, Keala Kennelly watched on the tiny screen of a borrowed cellphone as her friend and competitor Paige Alms won the Peahi Womens Challenge at Jaws, Mauis famed big-wave break, and captured the inaugural World Surf League womens Big Wave Championship.A few hours earlier, in the first heat of the womens contest, Kennelly caught the opening wave. It was the first surfed by a woman in a WSL big-wave contest, and it received the highest score of the day. On her second wave, Kennelly lost her balance navigating bumpy surf and felt the lip of a 30-foot wave crash onto her back leg. An MRI fortunately revealed no torn ligaments, but she was unable to surf in the final for which she qualified.As the first woman to tow into a wave at Teahupoo, the first woman to paddle into a wave at Nelscott Reef and the first woman to win an XXL Big Wave award in a previously male-only category, Kennelly, 38, is one of the most influential and respected women in big-wave surfing. Alms, 28, is the next generation. In 2005, she became the first woman to get barreled at Jaws, her home break and a wave shes surfed since she was 14, and was called the best female big-wave surfer by Surfline.She lived up to that billing on Friday, catching more waves than any woman in the event and surfing with confidence and poise on a windy, treacherous day at Jaws.The day after competing in this historic event, espnW caught up with both women, who were already asking, What next?espnW: What was the vibe like when you all arrived at the beach Friday morning knowing youd surf in the first WSL womens big-wave contest ?Paige Alms: Everyone was so supportive. I was so happy to see that all the girls showed up and were charging.Keala Kennelly: I was more relaxed than ever for a contest. I was Zen. Ive been living in California. I was just so happy to be in Hawaii and back in warm water. I was excited to surf anything over 4 feet. I was hyped to be able to paddle out without 60 guys in the lineup.espnW: What was it like to be out at Jaws with only women, and so few people, in the lineup?PA: Even when were free surfing at Jaws, there are usually only one or two women in the lineup. The most theres ever been at once was four or five girls. To have six of us out there in a heat with no one else in the lineup, we all felt the same way: This is awesome.If there are 60 guys in the lineup, you dont catch a lot of waves. We were all glowing and proud to be out there together. Win or lose, having an empty lineup at your home break, one of the best big waves in the world -- nothing tops that.espnW: Paige, because Maui is your home break, did you feel more pressure on you to take the win?PA: The pressure comes from within. I wanted to put on a good show and make sure we represented women well. That was the pressure for me. It wasnt about winning the contest. My friends tried to put that pressure on me. But it was about having those empty lineups, choosing the waves you want with other girls. When I won, I felt like I won for everyone.espnW: What was it like to have so many women competing at a break at which you both have been such pioneering surfers?PA: Only half the 12 girls had surfed Jaws before this contest, and the other half of us were nervous for that. I know how powerful this wave is, but not knowing is almost better. Those girls showed up and sent it. I felt pride for the girls.KK: Windy Jaws is treacherous, so my hats off to all the girls who went out and took a wave. Air Max 2018 Elite. spnW: Speaking of wind, the conditions looked incredibly windy on the webcast. How bad was the wind?PA: It was very challenging. It matched the name of the contest, The Peahi Challenge. The wind was gnarlier than it looked at home. When its windy like that, it becomes really dangerous. I dont usually surf it when its windy. The risk isnt worth the reward.KK: I was excited when we left the harbor. But on the boat ride out, you can tell if the wind is going to be an issue. As the water got choppier, I could see the wind was going to be an issue, and that gets scary for me at Jaws. It becomes really dangerous because the wind gets up under the board, holds you up at the lip, doesnt let you in and releases your fins. It ups the danger so much. It was intense.espnW: Knowing that, how do you find the confidence to paddle out and make the decision that its worth the reward?PA: When the stadium is set and you know you have to go out, you go. We had a moment when I heard there would only be three of us in the final [after Kennelly, Laura Enever and Emi Erickson qualified into the final but pulled out due to injuries], and some girls asked if we should postpone the event or push it to the next stop on tour. I was like, No. We are here to surf, to do the job they invited us to do. If we didnt step to the plate, it would make womens big-wave surfing look bad.The conditions were tough, but its still the best big wave in the world, even when its windy. We are going to do it now. It was game on for all of us from that point.KK: Paige did such an amazing job and sent it. She went out there and earned her victory and carried it for the women. But Paige is a true sportswoman and she was bummed I wasnt in the final. We love and respect each other, and Paige definitely wants me out there. But she is so deserving. Paige let people know that we deserve to be there.One of the disadvantages of being backside at Jaws is you have your back to most of the wave so its difficult to see ??the oncoming section and sometimes it can creep up on you and take you out. ?????? unfortunately I didnt see the end section coming on this wave and it caught me by surprise so I had no time to brace myself for the explosion ???? and my body paid the price ??. @wsl #Peahichallenge2016 ?? by @tonyharringtonA photo posted by Keala Kennelly (@kealakennelly) onNov 12, 2016 at 11:34am PSTespnW: What do you think happens from here? Is this the first of many big-wave events for the women?PA: Thats the goal. This is the first of its kind, the first time they gave us this opportunity. This is my home break, where I grew up and learned to surf big waves, and I felt obligated to put on a show to show the world we know how to surf this wave. Thats where the pressure came from. Now that we showed that, I hope the WSL will add more events. Maybe we can talk them into having the Todos womens event. It would be rad to have an event at all the big wave stops.KK: It was an honor to compete, and I was stoked for the opportunity. Its not the way I wanted it to go down, but Im proud of the wave I rode and proud that I got the highest score. And I am excited for next year. There will be a next year.

(Sports Network) - The San Antonio Spurs will try to punch their ticket to the Western Conference Finals Thursday night when they meet the Golden State Warriors in Game 6 of the semifinals at Oracle Arena. France Florian Thauvin World Cup Jersey . The Spurs took the 3-2 series lead Tuesday night in Alamo City with a 109-91 victory. It was a tale of two halves as the Spurs blew the doors of the Warriors over the final 24 minutes. San Antonio outscored Golden State, 55-40 over the final two quarters. The Spurs shot 52.6 percent from the field in the second half, led by Tony Parker, who had 16 of his 25 points after halftime. "We made shots, the ball movement was good," Parker said. "So hopefully we can do the same thing in Golden State. Thats a big key for us ... We have to play Spurs basketball and move their defense." The Spurs handed out 30 assists on 40 made field goals. Thats incredible ball movement as Parker dished out 10 dimes and five other San Antonio players recorded at least three assists. With the offense clicking, the defense was pretty stout on Tuesday night, especially against the vaunted Warriors backcourt. In Game 5, Steph Curry and Klay Thompson combined for 13 points on 6-for-22 shooting. Curry was averaging 26 ppg during this series and he had nine on Tuesday. Thompson was at 20 ppg and he managed four. But Warriors coach Mark Jackson was quick to dismiss the cold shooting of the most prolific 3-point shooting teammates in NBA history as the reason for the loss "They shot 72 percent in the first quarter, scored 37 points," Jackson said of San Antonio. "That has nothing to do with Klay Thompson or Steph Curry shooting the basketball. Thats a recipe for disaster and that put us in the hole." It did, but the Warriors clawed back in the second quarter and had it as close as four points in the third. Then, thanks in large part to 11 Golden State turnovers in the second half, the Spurs went on their run. "Careless with the basketball," Jackson lamented. "We got out of character on both sides of the ball." Despite the disappointing performance from the starting guards, rookie Harrison Barnes continues to dazzle. After scoring 26 points in the Warriors Game 4 victory, Barnes followed it up with a 25-point performance on Tuesday night. The Warriors will try for their first appearance in the Western Conference Finals since the 1975-76 season. "Were excited about Game 6," said Jackson. "We want to put ourselves in position to head back to San Antonio, but first things first." For the Spurs, advancement would mark the eighth time in 15 years that San Antonio made it to the Conference Finals. They got to that level last year, but were bounced by the Oklahoma City Thunder in six games. "Nobody talks about getting this thing over with like youve got a rash, or take a pill, or put some cream on it and its going to be gone," joked Spurs coach Gregg Popovich. "This is a war. Thats a class team." If the Warriors win on Thursday, Game 7 will be back in San Antonio on Sunday. Cheap Youth France Jerseys .ca. Kerry, Just watched the shootout in the Coyotes/Leafs game and I have to ask, why was the James van Riemsdyk goal allowed to count? All of the video replays we were shown on TV were inconclusive about whether the puck had entirely crossed the line or not. France Adil Rami World Cup Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable.Following the most productive season of his career, Mark Fraser said he was eager to get a deal in place with the Maple Leafs and hopes the team can do the same with his defensive partner, Cody Franson. Speaking with Bryan Hayes and Jamie McLennan Tuesday afternoon on TSN 1050s Blue Lunch, the 26-year-old blueliner said the one-year, $1.275-million deal is something that works for both sides. "I think both sides were happy that we didnt end up going down that road (an arbitration hearing) and we were able to agree with something before-hand," Fraser said. "I wanted to be back at a fair price, but so did they, so I actually look at that as sort of a compliment." Coming off a season in which he was able to establish himself as a regular top-six defenceman for the first time in his career, the Ottawa native set career highs with eight points and 85 penalty minutes, while leading Toronto with a plus-18 rating. "We felt like we had something really good last year and we wanted to maintain that and that was the message this morning as well," Fraser said. Acquired from the Anaheim Ducks in February of 2012 for Dale Mitchell, Fraser developed a solid chemistry with Cody Franson, as the pairing was arguably Leafs most consistent throughout the season. "It worked out great," Fraser said. "I loved having a partner over there that was actually maybe even a little bit bigger than I am, not afraid to play physical and very responsible with his puck movement. It just happened to be a really good fit." Following the Fraser contract, Leafs GM Dave Nonis has around $4.9 million in cap space for his remaining restricted free agents, Franson and Nazem Kadri. Nonis also has the option of a second buyout period which lasts for 48 hourrs, three days after the teams final arbitration case is settled, should the team choose to free up additional dollars. Dark Blue World Cup France Jerseys. . "Hes going through a similar thing," Fraser said of Fransons contract situation. "But for his sake and our team and myself, I really hope it can be sorted out because hes just a great asset and he helped me out a lot." Forced to watch the Leafs final three playoff games from the sidelines after a scary incident in which he took a Milan Lucic shot to the forehead, Fraser said he should be 100 percent come training camp. "Ive been back to Toronto a couple of times throughout the summer for checkups. Probably about a month ago I was cleared to start training and a couple weeks ago I was cleared to start skating." Joking that he was more upset that he turned the puck over and "it ended up in my face," Fraser commented on how his doctors told him it was "pretty miraculous" that he didnt suffer a more serious injury. "The doctors were concerned about potential brain damage, but I actually didnt even have a concussion," Fraser said. "It took major surgery, but it actually could have been a lot worse." Selected in the third round, 84th overall by the New Jersey Devils in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft, Fraser said there were no hard feelings between him and the Bruins winger and Lucic asked if Fraser was okay as he was being escorted out of the ACC prior to overtime. Despite the heartbreaking Game 7 loss to Boston, Fraser believes the Leafs are headed in the right direction and feels comfortable under head coach Randy Carlyle. "Im happy to play for a coach who believes in me and can give me the confidence and liberties to go out and play my way and play my style."

They ended Thursday with the star outfielder still on the team, with the expectation he will be there on Opening Day as well.Our intent coming in here was to have Andrew McCutchen be in our lineup going forward, Pirates general manager Neal Huntington told reporters. No one changed that. Its unlikely someone changes that going forward.

We listened. We engaged, Huntington told reporters. And not just on Andrew but on other players who are on one- or two-year contracts.

PHILADELPHIA -- The rookie quarterback quickly turned Philadelphia into Carson City. Air Max 270 For Sale Cheap .Coaches and teammates have raved about Carson Wentz despite barely seeing him play in games. Now a city starved for its first NFL championship since 1960 has embraced the red-haired kid from Bismarck following an impressive NFL debut.Its his team now, right tackle Lane Johnson said.Playing his first game in a month, Wentz showed no signs of rust or inexperience.Itll hit me after the game that Ive been dreaming about this since I was a kid, Wentz said after he threw for 278 yards and two touchdowns to help the Eagles beat the Cleveland Browns 29-10 on Sunday.Wentz looked every bit like the franchise quarterback the organization hoped for when it traded a slew of picks to move up in the draft and select him at No. 2 overall. By the way, the hapless Browns owned that pick before trading it away after they signed Robert Griffin III.Its not surprising, first-year coach Doug Pederson said of Wentzs success. Just knowing the maturity level that he has, this is who he is. This is his DNA. He prepared like a veteran and he played that way.Philadelphia is a tough town desperate for a winner. It can make or break athletes who cant handle the pressure. Wentz seems to have the right psyche.Its just a game, he said.Wentz, who missed the last three preseason games with injured ribs, immediately won over fans with a 19-yard TD pass to Jordan Matthews on the opening drive. Fast starts werent typical last year when Chip Kelly and his up-tempo offense ran the show. The Eagles didnt even score a TD in the first quarter until Week 6.That was huge, Wentz said. It gave me a lot of confidence.Promoted from No. 3 quarterback to starter just eight days ago after Sam Bradford was traded to Minnesota, Wentz played mistake-free football. He finished 22 of 37 with a 101.0 passer rating.I like what I see, Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham said. Thats his preparation. Hes been here every morning at 5.One play after converting a fourth-and-4 from the Browns 40, Wentz tossed a perfect 35-yard TD pass down the right side to Nelson Agholor for a 22-10 lead in the third quarter.Hes a great competitor, Agholor said. He is ready for that moment.Wentz wasnt concerned about protecting his ribs, stood in the pocket, took some hard shots and made crisp passes. He fired one pass to Matthews for a big gain right before getting knocked down.Hes extremely confident, not that hes cocky, but no stage is too big for him, tight end Zach Ertz said. People think: `Oh, hes playing in Philadelphia from North Dakota State. There are not enough good things I can say about him. The guys are excited to play with him.So, hold off on the notion that the Eagles (1-0) gave up on contending in a weak NFC East by trading Bradford and committed to rebuilding by starting Wentz. Theyll be right in the mix if Wentz plays like this.When Sam got traded, I knew Carson could step up and make plays for us, left tackle Jason Peters said.Then again, he only beat the Browns (0-1).This is just one game, Matthews said. This is not the Super Bowl. We have to get ready for Chicago.The Eagles visit the Bears on Monday night in Week 2.---AP NFL website: Rob Maaddi on Twitter: Nike Air Max 270 For Sale . Mitch Holmberg added a goal and three assists. Connor Chartier also scored for the Chiefs (3-0-0). Luke Harrison spoiled Garrett Hughsons shutout bid with a power-play goal at 13:17 of the third period. The Spokane goaltender finished with 28 saves, including a Brandon Fushimi penalty shot in the second period that would have tied the game 1-1. Air Max 270 Womens . Nine days before the opening ceremony, organizing committee chief Dmitry Chernyshenko said Wednesday that Sochi is "fully ready" and will deliver safe, friendly and well-run games that defy the grim reports that have overshadowed preparations. .

Its becoming farcical. Phil Taylor beat Robert Thornton 7-2 last week Whenever he plays badly, we blame the darts.

We know what Barney can do, hes a champion, but Gary is playing better than him. I thought Gary was excellent last week and the week before.Rotterdam is the week after next, and Barney will want to perform on what will be the biggest stage for him.Prediction: I think Gary wins this because Im not convinced Barney can keep fighting for no reason, its just not his way.

(Sky Bet Odds: Lewis 7/1 to win 7-5)James Wade v Michael van Gerwen Michael van Gerwen was on Soccer AM at the weekend If you offered Wade 6-6 he would not turn up.James must replicate what he did in the first week with a win over Michael - hes still the only person to beat him this year. If he can, it bodes well for him to qualify.It could get messy for that fourth spot. A loss for Wade doesnt necessarily end his hopes - if everyone loses, a draw somewhere down the line could be enough. The race for fourth wont be sorted out this week.Prediction: I think Wade loses. I think Van Gerwen just has too much for Wade. (Sky Bet Odds: MVG 2/7 to win)Peter Wright v Gary Anderson Gary Anderson will need better counting to beat Peter Wright... Wright has a terrible record against Anderson. I really do feel that Gary likes to play Wright because he plays well against him a lot.Weve said this when Barney plays Van Gerwen, and when Lewis plays Barney - you get players that you just like to play against. And I dont think Wright is a lover of playing Anderson.Anderson feels like hes got Wrights number, and I also think he has.Prediction: A dismal night for Wright.

GLENDALE, Ariz. Argentina Guido Pizarro World Cup Jersey . -- When the city of Glendale backed out of an arena lease deal with the Arizona Coyotes last year, it put the future of the franchise in doubt yet again.Turns out, Glendale may have done the Coyotes a favor.The Coyotes announced a proposal Monday to build a 16,000-seat arena near Arizona State Universitys main campus by 2019, a deal that would put the team in the heart of the Phoenix areas population and financial center.Someone said at the time it would be a silver lining, Coyotes President and CEO Anthony LeBlanc said of the Glendale City Councils decision. This is a gold lining.The new arena will be on a 58-acre parcel within Arizona States Athletic Facilities District, less than two miles from campus. The NHL arena will include an attached 4,000-seat multi-sport arena that would be used for Coyotes practices as well as by ASU athletics and youth hockey teams.The Coyotes agreement with developer Catellus Development Corp. sets a June 30 deadline for creating the overall budget, design and operational plan for developing the arena.Coyotes majority owner Andrew Barroway said the arena will cost around $400 million, with the team picking up about half the cost. The other half will be through public-private funding, according to LeBlanc.Lets be realistic here: These types of arenas dont happen without some kind of public-private partnership, LeBlanc said. Its an absolute requirement, but the world has shifted where teams would look for the entire bill to be covered by a governmental agency, you see a shift toward the middle of the spectrum.The Coyotes shared an arena with the NBAs Phoenix Suns after moving from Winnipeg in 1996 and moved to the Phoenix suburb of Glendale in 2003. The team had other options at the time, including Scottsdale, but the area where they are now was expected to be the growth area in Phoenix, so the franchise went with Glendale.The Coyotes time in Glendale has been tumultuous, starting with former owner Jerry Moyes taking the team into bankruptcy in 2009, leading to the franchise being operated by the NHL for four years.The Coyotes signed a 15-year, $225 million arena lease deal with the city of Glendale in 2013, but the City Council voted to terminate the lease last year. The sides agreed to a restructured lease agreement last July to keep the team in Glendale for two more seasons. The team has a lease option for next season and LeBlanc said the team is already working on extending it.Arizona had considered sites in downtown Phoenix, Scottsdale and Tempe before LeBlanc announced in June that the team had selected a then-unnamed site for its new home.One of the drawbacks of having the arena on the west side of town was that it was too difficult for fans on the east side to get to games, particularly during rush-hour traffic for weekday games.The new site will put the Coyotes on the more-populous east side of the Valley of the Sun and, they hope, lead to bigger crowds. The Coyotes annually have among the NHLs lowest attendance figures.Any business that you run, you want to make sure youre close as possible to the majority of your customers, LeBlanc said. Its just a simple, empirical fact that the majority of the people are on the east side. Thats not to say anything negative about our friends here on the west side, its just a fact that the vast majority are on the east side.The Coyotes hope to have construction begin by the end of next summer and have the arena ready for play by the 2019-20 season. There are still a few hurdles to cross -- namely the public funding side of the equation -- but Monday was a big step toward the Coyotes finding a permanent home.Its a long road to get here, but everything looks great for the Coyotes, Barroway said. For staying in Arizona. Were going to be in a place we think is the ideal location. Were going to build a world-class facility we believe our fans will be excited about and want to come to. Argentina Cristian Pavon World Cup Jersey . The Cincinnati Reds remain perfect with their speedy rookie outfielder in the starting lineup. Authentic Argentina Jerseys 2018 . The Cleveland Indians, Tampa Bay Rays, and Texas Rangers all won on Sunday meaning the Rangers will host the Rays in a play-in game on Monday. http://www.cheapworldcupargentinajerseys...rld-cup-jersey/ . -- Bobby Ryan helped the U. If Jessica Moore needed a crowd around her to make pitching worthwhile, she might never have picked up a softball in the first place.Crowds are hard to come by in Sutter, the town in northern California that offered olive groves aplenty, but no stoplights and little more in the way of grocery shopping when the Team USA pitcher grew up there. Sutter is near Yuba City, Moore explained recently to an outsider, not realizing that information might not help non-locals come any closer to finding it on a map. The nearest population center of national significance is Sacramento, about an hour south. In a town of around 3,000 residents, her high school senior class barely reached triple digits.Sutter is the kind of small town, she said, that shuts down for a high school football game. But it was not the kind of place where a young girl playing softball was likely to be spoiled with attention or the newest and priciest equipment. It was the kind of place where she wore out a rut in the grass in the backyard, her foot dragging each time she threw a pitch to her dad.Whether its more accurate to say those surroundings shaped her or suited her, the place and the person meshed.I dont really like to be the center of attention, Moore said. Some people, they look at [the pitcher] as the player who wants to have the spotlight on them. Im not necessarily that, but I like to be the one who is in control. I trust myself to do the job -- and obviously my teammates. But I like to have things riding on me. I like that pressure. I love to compete.As much as the drop-ball that tumbles off the table before it reaches batters, as much as the international experience available to the longest-serving pitcher on Team USAs staff, it is her background that makes Moore such an asset at this particular moment in the sports history.She worked to earn the chance to pitch for her country. That means everything to her. How many people are watching means less.The worlds attention is turning to the Southern Hemisphere and the Olympics, even as 31 international softball teams gather much farther north, near Vancouver, British Columbia, for the World Baseball Softball Confederation World Championship. There is optimism within softball that by the time the globe next gathers for the Olympics four years from now in Japan, the sport will return to the program from which it was evicted after 2008. A decision is expected by the time Brazils Olympics begin. But for now, as was the case when Japan won the title in Canada in 2012 and then defended it in the Netherlands in 2014, the world championship remains the sports biggest international prize.Vancouver, a megacity in every other respect, will play the role of Sutter in the shadow cast by Rio de Janeiro. There will be no television coverage in the United States and only modest media attention -- just plenty of competition for Moore and her teammates.Moore is not the household name, even in softball households, that Team USA pitchers of old like Lisa Fernandez or Jennie Finch were. None of the pitchers who make up the teams staff, which includes Kelly Barnhill, Ally Carda, Delanie Gourley and Jaclyn Traina, fit that description. Part of the reason are offensive tides in the sport that make it more difficult for pitchers to dominate. Some of it is because without the Olympic stage, it takes more effort for fans to keep track of players beyond college. That isnt to say the pitchers lack credentials.While recent graduate Cheridan Hawkins rewrote many of the University of Oregons records, Moore finished her college career as the Ducks all-time leader in wins and with four of the top five strikeout seasons in program history. She was thrice a first-team all-conference honoree.It says as much as anything that she started each of the first 20 postseason games Oregon played during her time there.I hated facing her, said Team USAs Valerie Arioto, formerly a Pac-12 rival at California. If you look at the stats, Im pretty sure she got me out every single time. So thats a little upsetting. She can just spot the ball, move the ball, drop it off the table. She was always one where I just hoped my teammates picked me up.Arioto was being generous, as teammates are wont to be. It wasnt a complete whitewash; among the most accomplished hitters in recent memory, she did manage exactly one single in 15 career at-bats against Moore.Shes a bulldog, Team USA coach Ken Eriksen said. She goes right after the batters. Its not trying to nibble here and nibble there. TThe most successful pitchers are the ones who avoid the walks, and shes that type of pitcher where shell go right at you. Argentina Nicolas Otamendi World Cup Jersey. She got a late start pitching, not playing organized softball until she was around 10 years old. Once she started, she wasnt content to be the big fish in a small pond. She played for high-level travel softball teams based far away from Sutter. She chose Oregon, at the time a struggling program in a conference that was still producing the national champion on an almost annual basis.The surroundings never intimidated her, even if she felt some people doubted the small-town pitcher could survive. It wasnt that she thought she was so good that she wouldnt struggle. She craved the challenge. It mattered more than manners, more than making friends.I think that was the hardest thing for me going in, was getting people to understand what Im really about because I am a little rough around the edges, Moore said. I think people sometimes mistake my sheer competitiveness and my demeanor. I guess I dont always look like the nicest person on the field. You cant put me in my element and expect me to be nice.Balance came as college continued, with help from a kindred spirit in former Oregon assistant and current UNLV coach Lisa Dodd. It was fine to expect the best out of teammates, Dodd suggested, but better to help them get there than shut them out if they fall short. By the time Moore was a junior, she was the Pac-12 pitcher of the year and a leader on a team that ended a long World Series drought. Yet no invite came to try out for Team USA, even as it rebuilt its roster for the first world championship it would contest without its Olympic-era core.So she went out and put up similar numbers as a senior. Finally, the invitation came in 2013. Four summers later, she is still here.I had the opportunity to work with the best pitching staff ever put together for the United States of America, Eriksen said of his role as an assistant on the 2004 Olympic team. When Im using my measuring stick, Im looking at Lisa Fernandez, Cat Osterman, Lori Harrigan and Jennie Finch. Thats, to me, the elite level. We have some pitchers that have that opportunity to get there, but they have to have the mental capacity to do that.She is one of those people that has that capacity to continue to elevate her game.If there is a temptation to pass those off as the words a coach has to say, consider that Eriksen last year hired Moore as his pitching coach to assist him in the job that actually pays his bills as head coach at the University of South Florida. Whether or not she ever dominates hitters to the same degree those former USA pitchers did, she thinks about the game and the process of pitching the way they did. That is rare enough.The United States doesnt enter the upcoming tournament as the favorite. Team USA doesnt hold any major title at the moment, silver medalists in the last Olympics in 2008, the most recent world championship and last years Pan-Am Games. Japan, which won three of four games against Team USA this year, is the favorite, with or without Yukiko Ueno, the legendary ace who was not on the roster when Japan played in an invitational tournament in Oklahoma City a week ago.Moore and her teammates arent seeking the worlds validation.Just an opportunity to again be its best softball team.I dont think I need anything to validate this experience because the experience is the experience itself, Moore said. Every time we get on the field, we want to win. We play to win. But at the end of the day, sometimes you cant control that. We can play phenomenal and we could come in second place. At some point, you cant be OK with it, but youve got to be able to swallow that. But thats the beauty of this game, too.If youre chasing gold medals, somewhere down the line thats going to catch up with you.But neither are they placeholders, not merely wearing the uniforms until the Olympic glory returns and others take their places. They compete for the same reason those in Brazil will compete.And its not because of how many people are watching.You cant just have a small-town focus, Moore said. Its got to be big dreams and youve got to go places to do it. You cant just do it out in Sutter. Youve got to play against the best to prove youre the best. There is still a lot to be proven, but I think Ive started a good legacy at least.

Four All-Stars, two MVPs, a whole new Splash Family in Golden State. Jonathan Marchessault Jersey .Kevin Durants decision to join the Warriors on Monday sent tremors through the NBA, and players and executives throughout the league immediately started to contemplate how the newest super team would alter the landscape.Thats crazy!!!! KD in GSW???? Wizards center Marcin Gortat tweeted. (Are) they gonna score 200 points a game?The Warriors already were a super team before one of the leagues most unstoppable scorers decided to leave Oklahoma City for the Bay Area. Golden State won the championship in 2015, rolled to a regular-season record 73 victories last season and came within one game of back-to-back titles when they lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers Game 7 of the NBA Finals.Now they have added the player who nearly eliminated them a round earlier.Though not everyone is anointing them next years champions.Everyone is so hyped up on the matchup problems on the offensive end? They still gotta come down the other end, Pistons All-Star center Andre Drummond tweeted. Not a very big team.Durants decision immediately rekindled the discussion about stars leaving teams to chase a championship elsewhere. Durant spent his first nine seasons in Oklahoma City.While there, he helped lead the Thunder to the Western Conference finals four times and to the NBA Finals in 2012, where they lost to the Heat, another super team formed when LeBron James and Chris Bosh joined Dwyane Wade in Miami.Durant himself spoke out negatively about creating super teams when James made his decision in 2010.But after the Thunder could never get to the top of the mountain with Durant, Russell Westbrook and Serge Ibaka -- and even though they had the Warriors down 3-1 in the conference finals -- Durant opted to head west.If you cant beat um, join um, Clippers forward Paul Pierce tweeted to tweak Durant.When James left Cleveland for Miami, stars such as Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley and Magic Johnson were critical of the decision to join forces with players he had competed against.Theres no way, with hindsight, I wouldve ever called up Larry (Bird), called up Magic and said, `Hey, look, lets get together and play on one team, Jordan said in 2010. But thats ... things are different. I cant say thats a bad thing. Its an opportunity these kids have today. In all honesty, I was trying to beat those guys.Denver Nuggets forward Jusuf Nurkic was equally puzzled by Durants decision.Somebody beat you! And you go there... ? Nurkic tweeted. Superstar not doing that man.While Durant has never been too concerned by outside opinions, his decision may also have ramifications on the NBAs collective bargaining negotiations.During the last lockout, the owners pushed to make changes to the agreement so that teams, especially those in smaller markets, would have a bigger advantage in retaining players.Commissioner Adam Silver has said in the past that those changes were effective, but the influx of new money into the system this summer from the leagues new $24 billion television contract, and Stephen Currys bargain contract that was negotiated when he was struggling with ankle injuries, conspired to give the Warriors enough wiggle room to spend $54 million on Durant.The league and the players union can opt out of the current CBA this year, and both sides have been negotiating to try to avoid another work stoppage.One of the biggest talking points Silver has been making over the past six months is the leagues continued push for more parity.The intention wasnt that in this system that teams could sign, without going above the tax, that many max player contracts and that many All-Stars, Silver said during All-Star weekend in Toronto.So if you ask me from a league standpoint, we would prefer that our All-Stars be distributed around the league rather than having so many All-Stars in one market. But well see what happens this summer.The summer is here, and so are the Warriors, who still have work to do.The Heat went 2-2 in the finals during the James, Wade and Bosh era, including a loss to the underdog Dallas Mavericks in their first season together. When James went back to Cleveland to team up with Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving, the Cavaliers lost in the finals their first year before winning this season.And everyone remembers the Los Angeles Lakers falling short both in 2003-04 -- when Gary Payton and Karl Malone joined Kobe Bryant and Shaquille ONeal to chase a title -- and even more spectacularly in 2012-13 when Dwight Howard and Steve Nash came to town.This time appears to be different, with all four of Golden States All-Stars aged 28 or younger and squarely in their prime.Only problem theres only 1 ball, Jazz center Rudy Gobert tweeted.And only so much money, as odd as that sounds this summer.So the Warriors have agreed to trade Andrew Bogut and will likely have to jettison Harrison Barnes -- two important cogs for them the past two seasons -- and will rely on several minimum salary veterans to fill out the roster for depth.They will also face a crush of attention and many hoping they fail.Warriors forward Draymond Green no doubt understands this, and got straight to the point with Durant in his first message to him on Twitter:Block out the noise.---This story has been corrected to show that Durant helped the Thunder to four Western Conference finals. Tomas Hyka Jersey . James, who turned 29 on Monday, injured his groin Friday during the Heats overtime loss at Sacramento. He sat out the following game, a 108-107 win Saturday in Portland, before coming back to help send the Nuggets to their seventh consecutive loss. Brayden McNabb Jersey . -- The Sacramento Kings are set to become the first major professional sports franchise to accept Bitcoin virtual currency for ticket and merchandise purchases. . Anthony Calvillo, through 20 CFL seasons, was frequently invincible and largely stoic in the heat of competition. But underneath the professional exterior he was, and is, compellingly human. Every offseason, Football Outsiders compiles a list of unheralded players who have the chance to become stars or major contributors. We use certain criteria to find the best young players who werent high draft picks and still havent had too much playing time but could be on track to become significant contributors.What would that list look like now, as opposed to in the next offseason?What follows is our list of top 25 prospects, based on players who would qualify right now. Some of these players could play their way off the list as their snap counts rise over the final eight weeks of the season, while others might still be fairly unknown when we get to next years training camp. But all of them are players to watch in the NFL going forward.The criteria:Third-round pick or lower (or undrafted) from the 2014-16 classes500 or fewer offensive or defensive career snaps through Week 10No signed contract extensionAge 26 or youngerIn the past, weve found players such as Arian Foster, Geno Atkins?and Jamaal Charles on our list. Our 2016 offseason list already has graduates including David Johnson, Danielle Hunter, Jordan Hicks?and Grady Jarrett making big impacts.Heres who we like now:1. Jay Ajayi, RB, Miami Dolphins436 offensive snaps | Fifth-round pick (2015)Nothing spellls out the roller-coaster nature of NFL life better than Ajayis past two seasons. Luca Sbisa Jersey. He went from looking like a first- or second-round pick to dropping out of the first two days of the draft due to a lack of cartilage in his knee. He finally had a chance to be a starter when Lamar Miller left Miami, but the Dolphins immediately blocked him with an aging Arian Foster. When Ajayi pouted about it, he was left behind for Week 1 in Seattle.Then the Dolphins figured out what draftniks knew: Ajayi was actually good. He rolled over the Steelers for 204 yards and two touchdowns in Week 6, and since then, the Dolphins have made him the centerpiece of their offense, rolling to four straight wins as theyve limited Ryan Tannehills snaps behind a bad pass-blocking line. Right now, Ajayi leads the NFL in rushing value,?according to Football Outsiders DVOA and DYAR metrics. The past five weeks, Ajayi is third in the NFL with 21 broken tackles, even though Miami has played only four games in that time. Ajayi is a victory for believing in an individual players talent because despite all the jibber-jabber around his career, his talent won out.
