Head coach Trevor Bayliss admitted England are no closer to knowing their first-choice spin combination in the wake of the 1-1 draw with Bangladesh. Adidas Garth Snow Jersey . Moeen Ali emerged from the series as the leading slow bowler with 11 wickets at 22.90 apiece but he, like Adil Rashid (seven at 29.85), Gareth Batty (four at 29.00) and Zafar Ansari (two at 56.00), conceded runs at over three-an-over.In contrast man-of-the-series Mehedi Hasan Miraz (19 at 15.63), Shakib Al Hasan (12 at 18.41) and Taijul Islam (seven at 22.85) all built pressure for Bangladesh by bowling with greater economy - helping to amass 49 maidens collectively in the series in comparison to 21 by their four England counterparts. Watch highlights of day three Asked if he is clear who his three best spinners are, Bayliss told Sky Sports: No. Its a close one and it will probably get down to the opposition batters - who were playing against, the left and right combinations.Most of all it will be down to who Cooky feels comfortable with. Im, sure well sit down over the next few days and have a long chat about it.England opted to rest Stuart Broad for the Test in Dhaka, which Bangladesh won by 108 runs to level the series, despite the injury-enforced absence of senior bowler James Anderson, who continues to recover from a shoulder injury. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just £6.99. No contract. Bayliss confirmed that Anderson will spend the next week undergoing further tests at Loughborough, after which a decision will be made on when the seamer will join the tour of India but added that at this stage he hasnt ruled out playing a more seam-based attack in the first Test at Rajkot on November 9.We could do - thats what England have done in the past and on the subcontinent thats worked, he said.But even from a seam point of view we need to bowl good line and length and in the way its the seam bowlers that are holding up one end and putting scoreboard pressure on.In this Test we were probably a little wayward as well and let the pressure off and let them get away. Alastair Cook has insisted he has faith in his spinners England had won all of their previous nine matches against Bangladesh but folded from 100-0 to 164 all out to lose in spectacular fashion.Bayliss said his sides frailty against spin was just one area his team needs to improve on.Its one thing to say we lost 10 wickets in that final session, but throughout the three days there were a number of areas that could have been better, he said.We missed a number of chances this morning and we gave too many free four-balls in our bowling in general; thats where the Bangladesh spinners especially were good - they bowled a good consistent line and length and made it difficult for our batters to get away.Weve got some young, inexperienced bowlers in the team and even Moeen is probably a batter who bowls a little bit and hes still learning the craft. Weve got some improvements to do and were not going to hide behind that. We hear from Alastair Cook, Mushfiqur Rahim and Mehedi Hasan The demands of playing seven Tests in eight weeks mean England currently have no scheduled warm-up matches before the opening skirmish with India and Bayliss said that situation is unlikely to change despite the early finish in Dhaka.Seven Test matches in eight weeks probably isnt a great programme but were looking forward to India; its obviously going to be a great challenge.We are going to have to dig deep - theres no two ways about it but weve seen these guys before. Weve lost Test matches against South Africa and Australia before and come back and won the next one so Ill look forward to an improved showing in the next Test.Watch England take on India in the first Test, live on Sky Sports 2 on Wednesday November 9.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Like a lot of NFL veterans on teams that travel out of town to start summer practices, Adrian Petersons enthusiasm for the approaching season has often been temporarily dampened by the drive to training camp. Andrew Ladd Jersey .Arrival at the familiar site of dorm room life, two-a-day workouts and overall drudgery, however brief, can prompt unpleasant feelings.This time, vibes around the Minnesota Vikings might be good enough to make even a player with 10 years of experience embrace the trip.Im excited as far as what we have and the vision that we have for this season, Peterson said. So that makes things better. Itll make it a lot better going into camp this year.The Vikings will report to Minnesota State University on July 28, bringing expectations of postseason success as high as theyve been since 2010. That became an ugly year for the Vikings. The picture for 2016 has a pretty frame, and now its time to fill in the illustration.Peterson sounded as resolute as ever when he declared recently the Vikings should be seriously considered as a Super Bowl contender. Theyre coming off an NFC North title, their first since 2009.We have the pieces and what it takes to accomplish that. So theres nothing wrong with saying it, Peterson said last month. If any other guy on this team doesnt feel that way, then we need to be trading him and bringing somebody in that feels that way as well.The timing is right for Peterson, who rushed for a league-high 1,485 yards and 11 touchdowns last season and turned 31 in March. His contract will carry an $18 million salary cap hit in 2017, so his future with the Vikings beyond this upcoming season is unclear.I dont see an end in my future anywhere soon, but of course I know Im coming around the last lap. And Im itching to get a couple before Im done playing this game, said Peterson, referring to a championship that the franchise has unsuccessfully chased since its inception in 1961.Here are some key angles to follow around the Vikings this season:BRIDGING THE GAP: Teddy Bridgewater finished in the bottom third of the NFL in most quarterback categories in 2015, and his accuracy on deep throws was perhaps the most problematic. He connected on just 11 of 42 passes that traveled 21-plus yards in the air, according to STATS research.For Bridgewater to take a meaningful step forward in year three, and for the Vikings offense to improve upon its 29th-place ranking in total yards last season, hell have to hit more long targets. Drafting Laquon Treadwell in the first round ought to be a boon for Bridgewater.He wins games, and to me thats the most important thing, coach Mike Zimmer said. Theres a lot more to playing quarterback than just throwing the ball through the wall.ON THE LINE: The biggest weakness over Bridgewaters first two years, the offensive line has been significantly upgraded. Its now the most expensive in the league. Alex Boone left San Francisco for a lucrative deal to be the left guard. Andre Smith, who left Cincinnati, is the front-runner at right tackle. Hell compete with Phil Loadholt, who like center John Sullivan has returned from an injury that sidelined him for the 2015 season.WILL WALSH BOUNCE BACK?: For all of the highlights from last season, the most memorable moment was the improbable miss by Blair Walsh of a 27-yard field goal that wouldve given the Vikings a victory over Seattle in a frigid first-round game in the playoffs. Walsh followed an off year in 2014 with a solid regular season in 2015. But a strong start to 2016 would go a long way toward ensuring hes not negatively affected by that heartbreaking shank.THE TIME IS NOW: The teams backbone lies in recent first-round draft picks such as Bridgewater, linebacker Anthony Barr, cornerback Xavier Rhodes and safety Harrison Smith. The soul rests in the veterans such as Peterson, linebacker Chad Greenway, defensive end Brian Robison and cornerback Terence Newman whose Super Bowl pursuit is still hot. Greenway and Newman signed one-year contracts, deferring retirement to remain with a team thats in prime position to make a run.BANK ON IT: The ship-shaped, glass-fronted $1.1 billion U.S. Bank Stadium will soon be unveiled, with the Vikings set for their first performance on Aug. 28 for an exhibition game against San Diego and the regular-season home opener on Sept. 18 against rival Green Bay.---Online:AP NFL website: http://www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Scott Mayfield Jersey .ca!

The nine-time Big 12 champion Jayhawks are positioning themselves for another title, as they have run out to a flawless 6-0 mark in conference play thus far. MINNEAPOLIS -- Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers burst into Minnesota Timberwolves coach Tom Thibodeaus postgame press conference, hollering Can you come on! Im out here waiting! to his longtime friend and former assistant.Thats what happens when you win, a chuckling Thibodeau said.Rivers would know.Blake Griffin had 20 points and 11 rebounds and DeAndre Jordan had 18 points and 16 boards to lead the Clippers to their sixth straight victory, 119-105 on Saturday night.Chris Paul had 19 points and eight assists and J.J. Redick scored 18 points for the Clippers (9-1), who have the best record in the NBA. Los Angeles shot 52.6 percent and outscored the Timberwolves 21-10 in transition.This is the best team Ive had here, Rivers said. But we got to keep doing it. Weve got to keep getting better and performing. But this is a heck of a basketball team.Karl-Anthony Towns had 24 points and 10 rebounds and Ricky Rubio had seven points, six assists and six rebounds in his return from a five-game absence for Minnesota. Andrew Wiggins scored 22 points, but shot just 8 of 24.We had to work for our shots, Wiggins said. The clogged the paint up, switching everything, contesting every shot. They made it hard on us.The Clippers are off to their best start in franchise history and have so far exhibited all the qualities of a team that can make a deep playoff run. Once a weakness, the bench has been a strength this season. And they entered the game as by far the best defensive team in the league, allowing a paltry 90.4 points per game.After slugging it out with Oklahoma City on Friday night, Los Angeles put the clamps on the young and athletic Timberwolves, who entered the game with the most explosive first-quarter offense in the league. The Clippers outscored Minnesota 34-21 in the period, holding the Wolves to 39 percent shooting and forcing four turnovers, and they never looked back.There are some good things, but to beat a team thats rolling like that, we have to obviously plaay a lot better than we did, Thibodeau said. Nikolay Kulemin Jersey. TIP-INSClippers: Defensive stopper Luc Mbah a Moute scored 15 points on 6-for-8 shooting. ... Redick hit 2 of 7 3-pointers, extending his streak to 66 straight games with at least one made from long distance, the longest active streak in the league. ... F Wes Johnson did not play because of a sore heel. He was injured on Friday night in Oklahoma City after a blocked shot.Timberwolves: Thibodeau fell to 8-9 in his career against Rivers. ... F Brandon Rush was inactive and has not played in the last three games.HACK-A-JORDANThe Wolves went to the Hack-a-Jordan strategy just over midway through the fourth quarter, with Cole Aldrich fouling him on three straight possessions to get Jordan to the line. As Aldrich headed to the bench 30 seconds later, Jordan gave his former teammate a playful shove off the court.The strategy did not work, either. The big man hit 10 of 16 foul shots in the never-ending fourth quarter.Im confident up there. Ive got a routine, Jordan said. Ive got everything I need and Im just going to go up there and shoot.GRIFFINS MILESTONEGriffin entered the game needing 17 points to join an exclusive club with 9,000 career points, 4,000 rebounds and 1,500 assists. Griffin got it on a free throw in the fourth quarter. He became the fastest player to reach that plateau since Larry Bird.Its an honor to be mentioned in that category, but Larry went on to have quite a bit more, Griffin said. Thats the ultimate goal, having a career like that. Its cool to have a start like that, but thats not the end goal, a goal by any means.UP NEXTClippers: Head back home to face Brooklyn on Monday as they continue a stretch of four games in six nights.Timberwolves: Host the Lakers on Sunday in the 31st home back-to-back in franchise history, but first to occur on Saturday and Sunday nights.

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. Wholesale Blazers . -- The Jacksonville Jaguars named Doug Marrone as their interim head coach Monday, less than 24 hours after firing Gus Bradley with two games left in the season.Marrone had been Jacksonvilles assistant head coach/offensive line coach since January 2015. He joined the team after two seasons as the head coach in Buffalo, where he guided the Bills to a 15-17 record before opting out of his contract because of uncertainty over possible organizational changes.Marrone coached the Bills to a 9-7 record in 2014, which to date is their only winning record since 2004.Bradley hired Marrone in 2015 to replace offensive line coach George Yarno, who left the team after being diagnosed with cancer. Marrone interviewed with five teams that had head-coaching vacancies after the 2015 season, but was not offered a job.Marrone also has been a head coach on the collegiate level, going 25-25 at Syracuse from 2009 to 2012.Bradley was fired Sunday after Jacksonville suffered its ninth straight loss, a 21-20 defeat to the Houston Texans. The Jaguars went 14-48 in parts of four seasons under Bradley.Its unclear at this point if Marrone will be considered as a permanent replacement for Bradley. If the Jaguars look outside the organization, Bradley hopes that anyone interested will give him a call. He has a lot to tell them about owner Shad Khan, general manager Dave Caldwell and the rest of the organization.I hope they do, because itll be a long conversation and itll be a very, very positive conversation, Bradley said Monday at meeting with local media at the Marriott at TPC Sawgrass. Im telling you, this organization, with this ownership and this front office and support staff, is unbelievable. Its easy for me to say when Im hired and Im a part of it, but I just got let go yesterday.Bradley said he still considers Khan a friend and called him phenomenal. He also said that while the Jaguars are in the midst of the most disappointing season in franchise history, he believes the next head coach is set up for success because of Khan, Caldwell and the amount of talent in the locker room.I think youre coming into a situation where this is a hungry, chip-on-the-shoulder team, so if a coach was looking at this youd say, [its a] pretty good situation, Bradley said.The Jaguars are now 2-12 in a season in which they were expected to compete for the AFC South title. The Jaguars have not won a game at EverBank Field since Dec. 13, 2015.The record, what took place, I take full responsibility for it, Bradley said. I have no excuses. I have no misgivings. ... I understand the NFL is a business and its results-orientated and we didnt get it done.As far as being given the opportunity, [Khan] provided everything that we needed and so did Dave.Some players took the news of Bradleys firing pretty hard and made their feelings known on social media. Nose tackle Roy Miller was one of those, and he said again Monday morning that he wasnt happy.I think everybody knows the head coach always gets the blame, but hes not the only one that made mistakes, Miller said. In the end thats where were at. Everyone is trying to find a reason, an excuse. Weve been trying to do that all year. It pisses me off because as a player you have a lot of responsibility. You hate to see the head man take it all. Nike Blazer Sale Online .J. Ellis hit two-run homers and the NL West champion Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Diego Padres 4-0 Saturday night. Nike Blazer Clearance . It was just business as usual for the Thunder at home. Durant scored 32 points and the Thunder beat the Bulls 107-95 on Thursday night for their eighth straight win. http://www.cheapnikeblazer.com/ . Barcelona also left injured defenders Carles Puyol, Javier Mascherano and Jordi Alba out of its squad for the trip to Glasgow. That means that Marc Bartra will probably start again in the centre of the defence alongside Gerard Pique.TSNs Jack Armstrong offers his thoughts on P.J. Carlesimos fate in Brooklyn, the re-emergence of Andrew Bogut, the impact of MVP LeBron James as we all as his playoff predictions for the second round. 1. P.J. CARLESIMO (Nets): Not surprised that he wasnt given the job on a full-time basis. When they give you the interim title, they want to take a good look at you and youve got lots to prove before they remove the label. Ive known P.J. for close to 30 years and have a great deal of respect for him, both as a coach and a person. Bottom line, they absolutely needed to win the series against the injury-riddled Chicago Bulls and didnt. The Nets are a strange mix of players and when I watch them, the expectations dont fit what the final result is. They play with minimal passion and dont look like a together group whatsoever. P.J. did a very nice job righting the ship and pointing it in the right direction after taking over for Avery Johnson in the regular season but youve got to win a playoff series (maybe even two)  to keep a job like this. All the big names will be mentioned for this job due to the dollars involved. In order to get the big name type they want (Phil Jackson, Jeff Van Gundy or Stan Van Gundy), GM Billy King might have to be willing to take more of a back seat in order to allow the vision of the coach they recruit to do his thing. None of those guys are showing up just to coach and I highly doubt Jackson comes as a coach anyway. 2. EASTERN CONFERENCE PREDICTIONS: Day late and a dollar short. My picks are the following: Miami vs. Chicago - Heat in 6 games. Really physical/intense series coming up. Bulls are a mess physically but theyre as tough a team as youll find. Theyll find a way to steal two games in this series by mucking it up yet dont have the weapons on the perimeter to keep up with the Elite Heat. Knicks vs. Pacers - Knicks in 7 games. Knicks havent looked real good in the past few games vs. Celtics and Game #1 vs. Pacers. I feel both JR Smith and Carmelo Anthony will adjust to the physical style and defence of the Pacers and settle into a groove. I love the resiliency of Indiana, and Paul George is emerging day by day. They play as a team and every game will be a highly contested one. If the Knicks follow their proven formula of taking care of the ball and making 3-point shots, the gamee will open up and the talent level will win out. Nike Blazer Cheap. 3. WESTERN CONFERENCE PREDICTIONS: Here are my West picks. San Antonio vs. Golden State - Spurs in 6 games. Wonderful run by the Warriors vs. Denver. The injury to David Lee forced them to play small-ball and it worked out beautifully for them. The tempo/pace of this series will have to be monitored properly for the Spurs to play at the rate that makes them most effective. Love the Steph Curry vs. Tony Parker matchup. Experience, savvy and coaching win out in this one.  Oklahoma City vs. Memphis - Grizzlies in 7 games. From what I saw Sunday and during the regular season (particularly now without Russell Westbrook), this is a pick em series. Obviously, the best player between these teams is Kevin Durant and we saw why again Sunday; sensational. My gut tells me that the Grizzlies are in a good playoff mindset and their talented front court will wear down the overwhelmed Thunder front court as it progresses. The Grizzlies team defence will tighten and will find a way to make Durant work a little harder for his points. The Griz caught a break with Blake Griffins injury and the issue with Westbrook will help them again. 4. ANDREW BOGUT (Warriors): When Ive seen him play in person twice this season, I must admit, I had my doubts if he could get it back to his pre-injury days with the Bucks. I still have my reservations as to whether he can hold up and be consistently good over the long haul but I must say he was terrific in the final game vs. Denver with 14 points and 21 rebounds along with four blocks and three assists. He was moving well and had the second/third effort that seems to have abandoned him these past few years. Would like nothing more than to see a good front-court matchup in this series between him and Hall Of Famer Tim Duncan. 5. LEBRON JAMES (Heat): Congrats on the MVP award. In my mind, NO doubt. By far, the best player in the game today. Impacts the game in every category and does it at an improved level each year. When you talk about an athlete being in that ideal zone, their professional sweet spot, hes currently in it. You never know how long it lasts so you enjoy it while you get the lucky chance to witness it. Hes playing at that level that the true great ones play at right now. A joy to watch. ' ' '
NEW ORLEANS -- Sean Payton was still having some fun on social media Sunday night, after a victory he clearly relished against former New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams and the Los Angeles Rams. Nike Air Huarache Cheap .Payton tweeted a link to a video of the song Circle of Life from The Lion King with the words Who Dat.It was unclear what the Saints coach was referring to. But the song played earlier in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome after a Saints touchdown, so its unlikely that it was simply a reference to next weeks opponent, the Detroit Lions.Payton was never directly asked after Sundays 49-21 victory if he was extra-enthusiastic because it was his first meeting with Williams since their 2012 divorce and the Bountygate scandal that followed. But Payton was clearly animated on the sideline throughout the game, with fist pumps and smirks. When asked about them afterward, he said, I was a little excited. ... Listen, it was an important win for us.Saints offensive tackle Zach Strief acknowledged the obvious after the game, saying, It does, it means something. Theres more there. So, good for Coach.I didnt see anything out of him necessarily. I just know better, Strief said. The message all week was, Our backs against the wall. ... Theres no room for error. At no point did he ever say or act differently that I could see. But Ill be honest for him and say theres no way [it didnt matter that he was facing Williams]. And I understand why people cant say that. Nothing was different in his actions that I could see. But I know better.Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro added: [Payton] was fired up. We all know why.The closest Payton came to taking a jab at Williams in his postgame news conference was stressing more than once that he clearly thought the Saints offensive line won the physical battle up front against the Rams defense.The Saints (5-6) racked up their most points and their biggest margin of victory of the season, with the exclamation point coming on a 50-yard trick-play touchdown pass from receiver Willie Snead to running back Tim Hightower with 10:15 remaining.Payton and Williams downplayed the significance of their reunion during the week. But their three-year partnership from 2009-11 -- which included the only Super Bowl title in Saints history -- ended on bad terms even before the bounty scandal erupted. Payton opted to let Williams contract expire, feeling that his personality didnt mesh well with the rest of the staff. Others, such as?Drew Brees and Saints assistant coach Joe Vitt, later referred to Williams as having been fired.The animosity only grew when the Saints suffered unprecedented punishments from the alleged pay-for-injury scheme that was directed by Williams in New Orleans -- and the belief that Williams cooperated with the NFLs investigation. Payton and Williams were suspended for a full season.Payton has taken snarky jabs on social media before. When the New England Patriots erected a Tom Brady mural on the lighthouse outside their stadium before he served his four-game suspension this year, Payton tweeted a photo of it accompanied by @Patriots. Nike Huarache Online Sale .

Marrone interviewed with five teams that had head-coaching vacancies after the 2015 season, but was not offered a job.Marrone also has been a head coach on the collegiate level, going 25-25 at Syracuse from 2009 to 2012.Bradley was fired Sunday after Jacksonville suffered its ninth straight loss, a 21-20 defeat to the Houston Texans. The Jaguars went 14-48 in parts of four seasons under Bradley.Its unclear at this point if Marrone will be considered as a permanent replacement for Bradley. If the Jaguars look outside the organization, Bradley hopes that anyone interested will give him a call. He has a lot to tell them about owner Shad Khan, general manager Dave Caldwell and the rest of the organization.I hope they do, because itll be a long conversation and itll be a very, very positive conversation, Bradley said Monday at meeting with local media at the Marriott at TPC Sawgrass. Im telling you, this organization, with this ownership and this front office and support staff, is unbelievable. Its easy for me to say when Im hired and Im a part of it, but I just got let go yesterday.Bradley said he still considers Khan a friend and called him phenomenal. He also said that while the Jaguars are in the midst of the most disappointing season in franchise history, he believes the next head coach is set up for success because of Khan, Caldwell and the amount of talent in the locker room.I think youre coming into a situation where this is a hungry, chip-on-the-shoulder team, so if a coach was looking at this youd say, [its a] pretty good situation, Bradley said.The Jaguars are now 2-12 in a season in which they were expected to compete for the AFC South title. The Jaguars have not won a game at EverBank Field since Dec. 13, 2015.The record, what took place, I take full responsibility for it, Bradley said. I have no excuses. I have no misgivings. ... I understand the NFL is a business and its results-orientated and we didnt get it done.As far as being given the opportunity, [Khan] provided everything that we needed and so did Dave.Some players took the news of Bradleys firing pretty hard and made their feelings known on social media. Nose tackle Roy Miller was one of those, and he said again Monday morning that he wasnt happy.I think everybody knows the head coach always gets the blame, but hes not the only one that made mistakes, Miller said. In the end thats where were at. Everyone is trying to find a reason, an excuse. Weve been trying to do that all year. It pisses me off because as a player you have a lot of responsibility. You hate to see the head man take it all. Nike Blazer Sale Online .J. Ellis hit two-run homers and the NL West champion Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Diego Padres 4-0 Saturday night. Nike Blazer Clearance . It was just business as usual for the Thunder at home. Durant scored 32 points and the Thunder beat the Bulls 107-95 on Thursday night for their eighth straight win. http://www.cheapnikeblazer.com/ . Barcelona also left injured defenders Carles Puyol, Javier Mascherano and Jordi Alba out of its squad for the trip to Glasgow. That means that Marc Bartra will probably start again in the centre of the defence alongside Gerard Pique.TSNs Jack Armstrong offers his thoughts on P.J. Carlesimos fate in Brooklyn, the re-emergence of Andrew Bogut, the impact of MVP LeBron James as we all as his playoff predictions for the second round. 1. P.J. CARLESIMO (Nets): Not surprised that he wasnt given the job on a full-time basis. When they give you the interim title, they want to take a good look at you and youve got lots to prove before they remove the label. Ive known P.J. for close to 30 years and have a great deal of respect for him, both as a coach and a person. Bottom line, they absolutely needed to win the series against the injury-riddled Chicago Bulls and didnt. The Nets are a strange mix of players and when I watch them, the expectations dont fit what the final result is. They play with minimal passion and dont look like a together group whatsoever. P.J. did a very nice job righting the ship and pointing it in the right direction after taking over for Avery Johnson in the regular season but youve got to win a playoff series (maybe even two)  to keep a job like this. All the big names will be mentioned for this job due to the dollars involved. In order to get the big name type they want (Phil Jackson, Jeff Van Gundy or Stan Van Gundy), GM Billy King might have to be willing to take more of a back seat in order to allow the vision of the coach they recruit to do his thing. None of those guys are showing up just to coach and I highly doubt Jackson comes as a coach anyway. 2. EASTERN CONFERENCE PREDICTIONS: Day late and a dollar short. My picks are the following: Miami vs. Chicago - Heat in 6 games. Really physical/intense series coming up. Bulls are a mess physically but theyre as tough a team as youll find. Theyll find a way to steal two games in this series by mucking it up yet dont have the weapons on the perimeter to keep up with the Elite Heat. Knicks vs. Pacers - Knicks in 7 games. Knicks havent looked real good in the past few games vs. Celtics and Game #1 vs. Pacers. I feel both JR Smith and Carmelo Anthony will adjust to the physical style and defence of the Pacers and settle into a groove. I love the resiliency of Indiana, and Paul George is emerging day by day. They play as a team and every game will be a highly contested one. If the Knicks follow their proven formula of taking care of the ball and making 3-point shots, the gamee will open up and the talent level will win out. Nike Blazer Cheap. 3. WESTERN CONFERENCE PREDICTIONS: Here are my West picks. San Antonio vs. Golden State - Spurs in 6 games. Wonderful run by the Warriors vs. Denver. The injury to David Lee forced them to play small-ball and it worked out beautifully for them. The tempo/pace of this series will have to be monitored properly for the Spurs to play at the rate that makes them most effective. Love the Steph Curry vs. Tony Parker matchup. Experience, savvy and coaching win out in this one.  Oklahoma City vs. Memphis - Grizzlies in 7 games. From what I saw Sunday and during the regular season (particularly now without Russell Westbrook), this is a pick em series. Obviously, the best player between these teams is Kevin Durant and we saw why again Sunday; sensational. My gut tells me that the Grizzlies are in a good playoff mindset and their talented front court will wear down the overwhelmed Thunder front court as it progresses. The Grizzlies team defence will tighten and will find a way to make Durant work a little harder for his points. The Griz caught a break with Blake Griffins injury and the issue with Westbrook will help them again. 4. ANDREW BOGUT (Warriors): When Ive seen him play in person twice this season, I must admit, I had my doubts if he could get it back to his pre-injury days with the Bucks. I still have my reservations as to whether he can hold up and be consistently good over the long haul but I must say he was terrific in the final game vs. Denver with 14 points and 21 rebounds along with four blocks and three assists. He was moving well and had the second/third effort that seems to have abandoned him these past few years. Would like nothing more than to see a good front-court matchup in this series between him and Hall Of Famer Tim Duncan. 5. LEBRON JAMES (Heat): Congrats on the MVP award. In my mind, NO doubt. By far, the best player in the game today. Impacts the game in every category and does it at an improved level each year. When you talk about an athlete being in that ideal zone, their professional sweet spot, hes currently in it. You never know how long it lasts so you enjoy it while you get the lucky chance to witness it. Hes playing at that level that the true great ones play at right now. A joy to watch. ' ' '
The Los Angeles Rams have called time on Case Keenums season, announcing this week that Jared Goff will make his first start on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. Cheap Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys . Goff was selected first overall in the 2016 NFL Draft, but struggled with the playbook in pre-season and lost the battle for a starting place to Keenum. Who is Jared Goff? The rookie will start for the Los Angeles Rams this weekend, but who is he? However, after ranking last in overall offence and three separate games without scoring a touchdown, Rams head coach Jeff Fisher has announced that Goff will take over, in a new era for the franchise. He joins Carson Wentz and Dak Prescott as first-choice starting rookies, as well as Cody Kessler and Jacoby Brissett, who have also seen time at quarterback this season. Tony Romo called a press conference praising Dak Prescotts performances this season Prescott has led the Dallas Cowboys to an 8-1 start, and this week veteran QB Tony Romo conceded that the job was Prescotts to lose. There have been some memorable rookie seasons in years gone by - and some that fans would rather forget!

GREENBURGH, N. Glen Wesley Jersey .Y. -- Knicks coach Mike Woodson says Amare Stoudemire would be limited to about 10 to 15 minutes per game if he is able to return during New Yorks playoff series against the Indiana Pacers. Stoudemire worked out again Thursday as he nears his return from right knee surgery. He played in 4-on-4 scrimmages and says he felt better than he did after playing 3-on-3 Monday. The Knicks will wait to see how the veteran forward feels Friday before determining whether he will be in uniform Saturday for Game 3 in Indianapolis.

The 1.83-meter (6-foot) Leapai defeated the previously unbeaten Denis Boytsov in November to become the WBOs mandatory challenger.Carson, CA (Sports Network) - Toronto FC and Chivas USA will square off at the StubHub Center tonight as both clubs seek a much-needed victory. Neither club has had much to celebrate this season as they occupy spots in the bottom-three of the overall MLS table. Chivas sits at the bottom of the Western Conference on 14 points while Toronto, on 13 points, is second from bottom in the East. You can see all the action on TSN2 and TSN Mobile TV beginning at 10:30pm et/7:30pm pt. Even while Chivas has managed one more point than Toronto this season, things appear to more dire for the Goats ahead of Wednesdays clash. The clubs winless streak was extended to 14 games after Chivas surrendered a 3-1 loss to the Philadelphia Union at PPL Park on Friday, the first time since June 19 that the Goats have conceded more than one goal in a league game. The final result was made even more disappointing by the fact that Chivas held a one-goal lead on the road and was level with Philadelphia heading into the 82nd minute. "For me, its not easy to talk about the final result because Chivas USA, for 70 minutes, was very good," said Chivas head coach Jose Luis Real. "For the last 20 minutes, Philadelphia did very well. We had a little bit of problems at the end of the game." Chivas horrid run without a win is one game shy of the club record and tied for the third-longest winless run in MLS history. It also matches the longest ever such streak contained within a single season. Torontoo, meanwhile, is four games without a win after it was upended by Sporting Kansas City in a 3-0 loss at Sporting Park on Saturday. Adidas Brett Pesce Jersey. Ryan Nelsen, head coach of the Canadian club, stated prior to the match that he was happy with the progress his side had made, saying that despite Torontos numerous losses that they were never really out of a game. The same could not be said after the resounding defeat at the weekend. "We had a bad day at the office and that is the first time that I have had to say that," Nelsen said. "Its the first time I have had to say that we got turned over. But some very good teams have come into this stadium and been turned over even worse than what we have." But for all of Nelsens optimism, Toronto certainly appears to be in the midst of a downslide. The Reds have conceded a season-high three goals in consecutive games and have been blanked on the attacking end in three of the last four games. "It was a disappointing night for everybody and the players know it," Nelsen said after the defeat at Sporting. "We have the standards that I have set and that they try to adhere to and we didnt get there tonight. "I think this is the first time we can all hold our hands up. This is when you really measure the true character of guys. It is very easy when things are going well. It is when your backs are against the wall that you have to find out the steel of a player and a person. These are all tests." ' ' '
Kirk Cousins carried the Washington Redskins to the playoffs last season with a magnificent four-game run to conclude the regular season. Nike Dunk Cheap Wholesale .The Washington quarterback just might need to equal last seasons torrid stretch for the Redskins to make another postseason appearance this year.Washington (6-5-1) is on the outside of the playoff picture with four games remaining and aims to record a much-needed victory when it visits the reeling Philadelphia Eagles (5-7) on Sunday (1 p.m. ET, FOX).The Redskins lost their last two games and are in third place in the NFC East and trail the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by a half-game for the final wild-card spot. The Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers sit a half-game back of Washington so there is little margin for error.But the Redskins only to need to reminisce about last seasons strong finish when Cousins passed for 12 touchdowns against one interception during the final four games to know another late-season sprint is possible.However, Cousins cautions that there are no guarantees.I dont like to believe that, Well, we did this, so Im confident that its going to work out. I really feel you have to go back and earn it from the jump all over again, Cousins said on a conference call. We were able to finish the season strong last year. It can be done again, but by no means do I feel any type of calm or comfort drawing on last years finish.I think we have to do it all over again, and last year really has no bearing on whether or not we deliver this year.The late-season heroics assured that Cousins would continue as Washingtons starting quarterback and he has enjoyed a strong statistical campaign.The 28-year-old Cousins ranks third in the NFL with 3,811 passing yards and has 21 touchdowns against eight interceptions. He has thrown for 300 or more yards on six occasions, including efforts of 458 (a career high) and 449.Cousins is 3-1 in his career against the Eagles, throwing for 1,345 yards, 10 touchdowns and two interceptions.I think every game is its own entity and I dont know that the sample size is large enough really to say theres a correlation, Cousins said of his success against Philadelphia. I just think that each game you see what can happen and you never know.The Eagles are on the fringe of the playoff conversation despite three consecutive defeats by a cumulative 85-42. Philadelphias stellar 3-0 start is nothing but a distant memory after seven losses in the past nine games.Last Sundays 32-14 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals led first-year coach Doug Pederson to question the effort of some players and that ruffled some feelings in the locker room.Players like safety Malcolm Jenkins and linebacker Nigel Bradham shot down that rhetoric. Tight end Brent Celek did as well but he indicated that a higher work ethic is necessary.I think guys are giving effort, but I think that we can take it to another level, Celek said. Theres levels to that. You can go hard every single play. I think thats what hes trying to say is -- listen, we can do better.Rookie quarterback Carson Wentz was the talk of the NFL when he led the Eagles to a 3-0 start, but he tossed a season-worst three interceptions against the Bengals and has been picked off eight times in the past five games.Wentz has passed for 2,901 yards and 12 touchdowns against 11 interceptions. He completed a season-low 50 percent of his passes (11 of 22) and threw for just 179 yards in a 27-20 loss to the Redskins on Oct. 16.You have to stay optimistic, Wentz said. I know, obviously, the results are tough as of late, were kind of on a skid, but like Ive been saying, this is a good group of guys, a good locker room. Guys are in it until the end.The Eagles hope to have running back Ryan Mathews (knee) back after a two-game absence. Leading receiver Jordan Matthews (57 catches, 686 yards) might also play after an ankle injury held him out of the loss to the Bengals.Washington is monitoring the health of tight end Jordan Reed (shoulder), who missed last Sundays 31-23 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Reed returned to practice on a limited basis Wednesday.The Redskins also will have standout left tackle Trent Williams back in the trenches after he served a four-game suspension for violating the NFLs substance-abuse policy.It was a lot of anxiety, it was really tough, Williams told reporters. One of the hardest things for me was watching the games on TV and feeling helpless.One subplot involves Washington receiver DeSean Jackson (39 receptions, 644 yards), who spent his first six seasons with the Eagles before being released by former Philadelphia coach Chip Kelly following the 2013 campaign.Jackson is slated to become a free agent after this season and there is heavy speculation that he craves a return to the Eagles. Nike Dunk Shoes For Sale . -- Its been a long road back for Sean Bergenheim. Nike Dunk Wholesale China .B. -- The Baie-Comeau Drakkar took over sole possession of first place atop the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League on Thursday with their sixth straight win. http://www.nikedunkcheap.com/ .J. -- Marty Brodeur beat the Pittsburgh Penguins yet again.

Yohanny Dalembert added 16 points, Ramone Snowden 12 and Joey McLean 10 for the Dukes (1-7), who shot 45.5-percent (25-55) and outrebounded Longwood 47-27.Darrion Allen scored 13 points and Kendrick Thompson 12 to pace Longwood (2-4), which closed to 34-30 at halftime but fell behind by 14 before Isaiah Walton hit a 3-pointer at 16:27 after the break. Best Cheap Nike Dunks.
