Kevin Streelman fired a nine-under 63 to open up a two-shot lead after the opening round of the Sanderson Farms Championship, where Ian Poulter lies seven strokes off the pace. . Latest leaderboard Sanderson Farms Championship Streelman took advantage of low scoring conditions to mix 10 birdies with a sole blemish in Mississippi, moving ahead of a three-way tie for second which includes Irelands Seamus Power.Beginning on the back nine, Streelman birdied three of his first four holes before picking up strokes at the 15th and 17th to reach the turn in 31. Streelman is without a PGA Tour victory since 2014  A hat-trick of gains from the first came to an end with a three-putt bogey at the fourth, only for the American to roll in a nine-footer at the sixth and hole a birdie from a similar distance at his final hole.It was just a ton of fun for me, its what we do this for, Streelman said. There are certain days when things click. Im hoping that feeling can continue for the rest of the week. Power and Trey Mullinax both posted bogey-free 65s to share second with Carl Pettersson - who holed out for a 162-yard eagle late in his round - with Lucas Glover part of the group a further shot adrift.World No 74 Chris Kirk is the highest ranked player at The Country Club of Jackson and opened with a five-under 67, as Poulter continued his return from injury by mixing four birdies with two bogeys.

After a first half in which he thought "the lid was on the basket," the Toronto Raptors coach watched his squad mount a second half surge to defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers 98-91. . Los Angeles star goalie survived those perilous gymnastics with no problem, and he eventually backstopped the Kings to a skid-snapping win. Quick stopped 27 shots in his return from a 24-game injury absence, Jeff Carter scored the tiebreaking goal with 7:55 to play, and the Kings snapped their five-game losing streak with a 3-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night. . Manuel was offered a position the day he was fired. He accepted earlier this week and the team made the announcement Friday. BOSTON -- A frustrated Isaiah Thomas expressed disappointment in a lack of playing time after the?Boston Celtics?104-88 loss Friday night to the Golden State Warriors.I guess we gave up. I mean, coaching staff as well, Thomas said. We started subbing, it was bad. Especially, I only played 27 minutes. We gave up.Thomas admitted that his lack of second-half playing time wasnt the primary reason Boston lost, but he was likely frustrated by the Celtics poor showing against one of the leagues top teams during a national TV broadcast. The Warriors outscored Boston 31-9 in a dominant third-quarter effort.Thomas was subbed out with 4:52 remaining in the third quarter with the Warriors up 27 after outscoring Boston by 20 points over the first seven minutes of the third quarter. Thomas subbed back in with 5:16 remaining in the fourth quarter and Boston still down 19.Bostons 5-foot-9 All-Star guard finished with 18 points on 4-of-12 shooting over 27:35. He was minus-20 in plus/minus. Thomas had scored 20 or more points in each of Bostons first 11 games, including scoring 30-plus points in the Celtics two wins before Fridays game.Im not saying [the third-quarter substitution was] the reason why we lost, Thomas said. We couldnt get stops and they kept scoring and we didnt play well on the offensive end for the whole quarter. ... But we went into panic mode, for whatever reason. Thats why Im upset with that.Thomas was asked if maybe coach Brad Stevens had begun thinking about Bostons looming back-to-back and a visit to Detroit on Saturday night.Maybe. We panicked too fast, Thoomas said. Any game is winnable. As fast as you can get up [is] as fast as you can make a comeback. We have a game tomorrow, we have to turn the page. But we gotta be more consistent as players and as coaches.It would seem unlikely that Thomas comments will cause any sort of issue with Stevens. Last season, Jae Crowder and Thomas were among those vocal about the need for Stevens to determine a more set rotation. Boston played some of its best basketball once the rotations were set.Stevens noted at his news conference that he understands his players frustrations with an uneven start to the 2016-17 season. The Celtics have played without at least two of their top eight players in every game this season with Al Horford (concussion) and Crowder (ankle) having missed almost all of November.The one thing I like about our guys is theyre disappointed after every loss, Stevens said.I think that its a long year, everybody knows its a long year. Weve got 70 games left. ... [Players] realize that there are areas that we need to continue to improve, but, at the same time weve got a really tough stretch coming up and I think were going to approach it positively.Thomas resolved to turn the page after Fridays loss.The best players have the shortest memories, whether good or bad, Thomas said. Once you go to sleep, wake up tomorrow, you forget about this loss. But I believe we gave up. For whatever reason, they hit us and we didnt hit back.
