A three-point basket from new import Casper Ware with two seconds remaining has given Melbourne United a 95-92 upset win over the Sydney Kings in the NBL on Saturday night. Haydn Fleury Jersey .Sydney guard Kevin Lisch tied the match at 92-92 after hitting three free throws with 6.5 seconds to play, before Ware sent the packed house at Hisense Arena into hysterics with a long bomb.Jason Cadees desperate final shot was off the mark to give United their second successive win with Ware in the lineup.Having handily beaten the home side on their most recent visit to Melbourne, the Kings found themselves in a tight battle from the outset and behind a big night from Brad Newley (29 points), almost sent the match to overtime.Newley started the match in ominous form with 10 first-quarter points but United punished each of the visitors turnovers and David Barlow came off the bench to hit back-to-back triples for a 26-22 lead.The Kings drew level early in second before Ware stepped up with an assist and five points and David Andersen found his range as United built a 49-34 lead.But Sydney closed out the half with eight unanswered points, including a deep three in the final seconds from Steve Blake to cut the deficit to seven points at halftime.After a tight third quarter, Ware hit twice from outside to put United ahead 85-75 with five minutes to play but Lisch and Newley kept the Kings in it before Wares last-gasp heroics.Ware revealed after the match that he was reacting to the defence on the final match-winning play.I was getting to the rim pretty well and he (Cadee) was sagging off, said Ware. He backed off so I shot it.Quickly becoming a fan favourite, Ware is enjoying his time in Melbourne so far.I am loving it, he said. One of the better crowds I played for around the world.The fans ... they love basketball - you can tell the way theyre into the game.Sydney coach Andrew Gaze was disappointed to lose but felt the home side earned the win.There was a lot of good things that happened but weve got to acknowledge that our opponents are really, really good, said Gaze.They are a very, very talented team. Casper ... clearly can play in the crisis as well with a huge shot. Klas Dahlbeck Jersey . - The Washington Redskins have cut defensive lineman Adam Carriker and punter Sav Rocca. Victor Rask Jersey . Brett Kulak and Jackson Houck of the Vancouver Giants were each charged with assault causing bodily harm on Aug. 18, according to the B.C. court services. . -- The goal posts lying flat on the field, Arizonas fans lingered on the field, congregating around the locker room entrance nearly 30 minutes after rushing out of the stands. Zlatan Ibrahimovic opened his account in the EPL as Manchester United cruised to a 3-1 win against Bournemouth on the south coast.There was little between the two sides in a tight first half with neither keeper being particularly tested, before a mistake from Simon Francis just before the break gifted Man United an opener.The Cherries defender knocked a weak back pass to Artur Boruc who managed to clear the ball with Juan Mata putting him under pressure, but his clearance struck Francis before rolling back towards the Bournemouth goal which allowed Mata the easiest of tap ins.In the second half, Man United started strongly before doubling their lead just before the hour mark.Antonio Valencia was given space to venture forward down the right all afternoon and on 59 minutes his cross picked out Anthony Martial, who sliced his shot wide of the target but into the path of Wayne Rooney, and the Man United captain showed great skill and composure to head the ball back across goal and into the bottom corner. Joakim Nordstrom Jersey. hat goal took the wind out of Bournemouth and Man United quickly took advantage with a third just five minutes later.Ibrahimovic was given far too much space 25 yards from goal and the summer signing took his time before firing into the bottom corner with a clinical finish.The Cherries were given a glimmer of hope on 69 minutes when Adam Smith pulled one back with a fine finish from inside the area but that goal only improved the concentration of the visitors for the final 20 minutes, and Jose Mourinhos side comfortably cruised to an impressive victory on the opening weekend of the season.
