  Excited by the opportunity of securing the Buffalo Bills'
Posted by: liny195 - Yesterday, 09:15 AM - Forum: Harm Reduction - No Replies

starting job White Rafael Bush Jerseys , rookie quarterback Josh Allen had no intention of keeping anyone waiting Wednesday.That included members of the media seeking to hear Allen's first public reaction two days after the Bills announced he would start in Buffalo's preseason game against Cincinnati on Sunday.Upon completing extra work after practice, the quarterback skipped through the fieldhouse doors, then jogged toward a large group of reporters gathered outside the locker room. Apologizing for being late, the 22-year-old was still trying to catch his breath while attempting to put this week's developments into perspective."It's crazy to think about, definitely, but I'm not going out there to try to prove why I'm the starter or whatever the case may be," Allen said. "This is an opportunity for me, and I'm not going to take it lightly. But at the same time, I'm here for whatever the team needs, and I'm just going to try to do my job."Allen did his best to de-emphasize the significance his first preseason start represents by calling it "just another game."If only it were so simple for a player the Bills traded up five spots to select with the seventh pick — the highest draft position the franchise has used to choose a quarterback.In the four months since, the Wyoming product has gone from a raw prospect requiring time to develop behind either free-agent addition AJ McCarron or returning backup Nathan Peterman, to having a realistic shot at being the team's season-opening starter.Allen's opportunity comes after showing gradual signs of improvement through the first weeks of training camp, which carried over into Buffalo's first two preseason games.In a preseason-opening loss to Carolina on Aug. 9, he showed off his strong arm Rafael Bush Jerseys 2019 , but was erratic by finishing 9 of 19 for 116 yards and a touchdown while overseeing the third-string offense.On Friday, Allen went 9 of 13 for 60 yards and a touchdown in leading the second-stringers on scoring drives — including two field goals — on each of his three series during a 19-17 win at Cleveland .Rather than not revealing the starter until an hour before kickoff, as coach Sean McDermott did the two previous weeks, the Bills announced Allen would start against the Bengals in a message posted on their Twitter account Monday evening.McDermott said the difference in his approach was to provide Allen a chance to experience what a normal NFL week during the regular season would resemble."It's just him dipping his toes in the water, if you will, of what that looks like on and off the field," he said. "How he handles his teammates. How he handles the meetings. How he handles the interviews. That's all part of what comes with that starting quarterback position."McDermott wouldn't divulge how long Allen might play Sunday, or commit to whether he has a chance of securing the starting job with a good outing.Peterman will serve as the backup, while McCarron's status is uncertain after he hurt his right throwing shoulder against Cleveland. McCarron returned to practice on a limited basis Wednesday after missing the previous two sessions.All eyes will be on the 6-foot-5, 240-pound Allen, who is being asked to fill a position that's remained unsettled since Hall of Famer Jim Kelly retired following the 1996 season. Allen's two touchdown passes showed glimpses of his potential.Against Carolina, he zipped the ball between two defenders in hitting Ray-Ray McCloud III for a 14-yard touchdown. Against Cleveland, Allen avoided the pass rush, stepped up in the pocket and flicked his wrist to hit Rod Streater in the back of the end zone for a 2-yard score."You definitely can see the poise White Matt Milano Jerseys , definitely see the elusiveness," Streater said of Allen. "All those things are going to come to him. It has come to him now. But he's going to grow even more in the future. It's exciting to see him grow."One step at a time, Allen said."I was happy with the performance, but I'm not content," he said, referring to the game Friday. "Just trying to learn from every little mistake on the field, and even learn from every success, too."Question marks remain regarding a player who has had limited experience with Bills starters and has yet to face an opposing team's starting defense. Asked how much the pace of the game has slowed down, Allen provided a candid response, saying: "I guess we'll find out come Sunday." ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — If you haven’t done it already, and you’re on social media, mute LeSean McCoy’s account.The Buffalo Bills running back proved to be a one-man spoiler in tweeting out a significant occurrence in the newly released movie, “Avengers: End Game Matt Milano Jerseys 2019 ,” shortly after it premiered.The tweets didn’t go unnoticed, especially among Bills fans. Rather than eagerly trying to search out any possible news on who the Bills might select with their two draft picks in the second and third rounds on Friday, they instead learned a key plot twist.The reaction to McCoy’s tweets was so swift, it began trending on social media, and became its own “Twitter Moment.”Twitter posted a thread titled, “LeSean McCoy makes an enemy out of every fan who hasn’t seen Avengers yet,” and included several spoiler alert warnings.The thread then featured several reactions to McCoy’s tweets.Jake Bencie, of Indiana, posted a note asking the NFL to suspend McCoy, while adding he hoped “the Bills don’t win a game this season.”Sara Cichon of Buffalo posted a message that read: “YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO SAY SPOILER ALERT!!!!!! I wish I could unsee this tweet…this is a horrible day now.”And an account named BetTheOver concluded: “Just forced me to buy a Yeldon jersey with that tweet,” in reference to running back T.J. Yeldon, who signed with the Bills on Monday.

The NHL Play of the Year Showdown resumes today with soft hands, a dipsy doodle and a trick shot. Todays semifinal match-up features St. Louis Blues forward T.J. Oshie taking on Detroit Red Wings forward Tomas Tatar and Thomas Hertl of the San Jose Sharks. Oshie - as he proved at the Sochi Olympics this year - is comfortable going it alone. After a fake slapper from Alex Steen backs the Tampa Bay Lightning off, Oshie grabs the puck and starts making headway towards the net. Oshie then splits Victor Hedman and Teddy Purcell before avoiding a spinning stick-check from Martin St. Louis. Losing his feet, Oshie finishes it with a backhand shovel that beats big Ben Bishop. Tatar eliminates his defenders by running them clean into one another. Streaking over the blue line, Tatar feels a pair of Dallas defenders closing in on him. As Brenden Dillon moves in for the big hit, Tatar hesitates and the Stars d-man catches teammate Cameron Gaunce square on, sending both players flying. Tatar resumes his drive and finishes with a nifty backhand shovel that goes off Kari Lehtonen and in. Hertl – in just his third career game – had a historic night, scoring four goals at just 19 years old. The fourth goal, however, was something to behold. Streaking in from the left boards, Hertl barrels in on Martin Biron looking to cap an already impressive night. He pulls Biron to his right, bringing the puck back through his legs. Reaching between with his stick, he gets under the shot for a wrister that goes top left corner. The young Czechs effort produces a goal brimming with confidence beyond his teenage years.

Lee Smith Jersey .com) - Markus Granlund scored the game-winning goal as the Calgary Flames used an early offensive flurry to defeat the Los Angeles Kings, 2-1, on Monday.FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - A right cross to an opponents chin. An arrest on a marijuana possession charge. A decision to walk out on the Pittsburgh Steelers.And now, for LeGarrette Blount, a spot in the Super Bowl in a revived career.Its had its ups and downs, the hard-hitting running back for the New England Patriots said. Ive had good times and bad and Ive embraced them all. So Im enjoying every second of this.Blount returned to practice Thursday for the NFL championship game against the defending champion Seattle Seahawks in Glendale, Arizona, on Feb. 1.He helped the Patriots get there by rushing for 148 yards and three touchdowns on 30 carries in a 45-7 rout of the Indianapolis Colts last Sunday night.A feeling of redemption, perhaps?No, Blount said, it was the feeling of winning the AFC championship.Its a high point of a career that plummeted early in his senior year at Oregon when he punched opponent Byron Hout on the field after a loss to Boise State. Hout appeared to say something to Blount before being hit and Blount, who was led to the locker room by security personnel, apologized immediately after the game.He spent the next three seasons with Tampa Bay after going undrafted, then was traded to the Patriots in April 2013. He rushed for 166 yards and four touchdowns in a divisional playoff win over Indianapolis. But two months after a loss to Denver in the AFC championship game, he signed a two-year contract with Pittsburgh.In his first training camp with the Steelers, Blount was arrested on a marijuana possession charge after police said they found marijuana in a car Pittsburgh running back LeVeon Bell was driving. Bell also was arrested.Bell started all 11 games in which he and Blount were teammates.Blounts frustration mounted when he ran five times for no yards in the 10th game then didnt carry the ball at all in the next game, a 27-24 loss at Tennessee. As quarterback Ben Roethslisberger was preparing to kneel down on the final play, Blount headed to the locker room.When teammates got there he was about to leave for the team bus.I was still dresssed in my football stuff and I went out to go get him, Steelers safety Mike Mitchell said.dddddddddddd I know hes not a selfish guy. Hes a team guy, but its more so knowing his feelings were hurt.Blount was cut the next day.If there was someone that was a cancer ended up leaving on his own, thats a blessing for us, Pittsburgh centre Maurkice Pouncey said the day Blount was released. Hes been a good teammate. ... He made his decision last night and its probably going to stick with him for a while.Not really.Two days later, he signed with the Patriots. And three days after that, he rushed for 78 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries in a 34-9 win over the Detroit Lions.In the regular season, he rushed for 266 yards in 11 games with the Steelers and 281 in five games with the Patriots.Im in a better scenario than I could possibly be in right now, Blount said.And hes surrounded by appreciative teammates.We love LG whether he has 250 yards or 5 yards, running back Shane Vereen said. Hes a great player, a great teammate. Hes accepted around here and everybody loves him.In the AFC championship game, the 250-pound Blount showed power and agility in running over and around defenders.You dont see a lot of guys like him, coach Bill Belichick said. He can make you miss tackles a lot of different ways.He could have been doing that in Pittsburgh.It was a disappointment the way that turned out, Steelers president Art Rooney II said. Obviously, you dont want to cut a player, even a backup player, at that point in the season but ... the decision was that it wasnt a good fit.Blount still faces repercussions from his time in Pittsburgh. Hes due in court Feb. 4 when the marijuana possession charge could be dismissed.By then he could be a Super Bowl champion.I like it here a lot, Blount said. I just wanted to be a part of an organization like that and I got my chance to and Im taking full advantage of it.___AP Sports Writer Will Graves in Pittsburgh contributed to this report. ___AP NFL websites: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP_NFL ' ' '

Posted by: jinshuiqian0713 - Yesterday, 03:47 AM - Forum: Harm Reduction - No Replies

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Nick Johnson put an awful first half behind him and came up big for Arizona in the final 2:45. The Pac-12 player of the year scored all of his 15 points over that span after missing his first 10 shots, and helped Arizona hold off San Diego State 70-64 on Thursday night to reach the final eight of the NCAA tournament. "When I hit one shot it just started to feel a little bit better," he said. "I just kept on hitting shots." Mostly, Johnson hit free throws, making all 10 of his attempts to go with a field goal and a 3-pointer after the Aztecs shut him down for the first 37 minutes. "He just exploded in the second half," said San Diego States Dwayne Polee, who guarded Johnson. "I cant say that we didnt play hard defence, but he just made a lot of good shots." Aaron Gordon and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson scored 15 points each for the top-seeded Wildcats (33-4), who will try to win a West Regional final for the first time in Anaheim. Theyre 0-3 at Honda Center going into Saturdays game against second-seeded Wisconsin (29-7). Arizona coach Sean Miller joined his brother Archie in the final eight. The younger Miller coached Dayton to an 82-72 victory over Stanford of the Pac-12 in the South Regional semifinals. "We watched the game in our locker room," Miller said. "The fact that two of us are in the Elite Eight is a very unique situation, but well see." Xavier Thames scored 25 points and Dwayne Polee added 13 points for the Aztecs (31-5). Those two tried to bail out SDSU in the final minute, each hitting 3-pointers before Thames basket cut the deficit to 65-61 with 38 seconds left. The drama wasnt over yet in a game featuring tenacious defence and rabid intensity by both teams. SDSU got called for a 10-second violation, and the Wildcats regained the ball. Johnson got fouled and made both for a 67-61 lead with 26 seconds to go. Thames got fouled on a 3-point attempt, and he sank all three shots to leave SDSU trailing 67-64. The Aztecs had Johnson trapped near their bench, but he passed out of the double team and Gabe York got fouled at the other end. He missed the first and made the second, keeping Arizona ahead 68-64. Thames missed, and Johnson went to the line again where he ended the scoring with two free throws. San Diego State led by eight points early in the second half after leading by that many just before halftime. The Aztecs controlled the boards 37-29, with three of them often battling at once on the defensive end. Josh Davis had 14 rebounds for SDSU. The Aztecs were trying to reach the final eight for the first time in school history under 69-year-old coach Steve Fisher. "One of these days were going to get to a Final Four," Fisher said. Johnsons 2 of 12 shooting wasnt the Wildcats only problem. Kaleb Tarczewski returned late in the game with four fouls and Hollis-Jefferson fouled out with 4:42 to play. But Johnson made his first basket a couple minutes later and carried the Wildcats across the finish line after they trailed much of the second half. "Its amazing for a kid to be able to do that after not making shots for about 25, 30 straight minutes," Miller said. T.J. McConnells layup gave Arizona its first lead, 50-49, of the second half after the Wildcats got within one three times. SDSU answered with baskets the first two times, but couldnt stop McConnell, who finished with 11 points. The Wildcats started getting some of the offensive rebounds that eluded them much of the game, and Tarczewski scored after his teammates grabbed two on the same possession to keep Arizona ahead 54-51. Polees defence helped keep Johnson scoreless in the first half, when he went 0 for 7 and missed all three of his 3-point attempts. He finally hit a jumper at the buzzer, but typical of Arizonas early luck, it was ruled no good. Tarczewski picked up his third foul with 5:13 to go, leaving the Wildcats without their 7-footer to protect the basket. Sabres Jerseys 2020 . The Major League Soccer teams were scheduled to play on Saturday night, but their game was rescheduled after Stu Tudor was hit during a pregame storm.

Wholesale Sabres Jerseys . -- Michael Frazier II scored 21 points, Dorian Finney-Smith added 11 and No. https://www.cheapsabres.com/. The 27-year-old forward has informed the Leafs that he will be unable to play in Monday nights home game against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Buffalo Sabres Gear . - Olympic champion Marielle Thompson accomplished her mission of defending her skicross World Cup title at Nakiska Ski Area on Saturday. Buffalo Sabres Store NEW YORK -- Boston pitcher Brandon Workman appealed a six-game suspension imposed by Major League Baseball on Tuesday for throwing near the head of Tampa Bay star Evan Longoria last week. Workman can play until the appeal process is complete, and was expected to make his scheduled start Wednesday night against the Cleveland Indians. The penalty, which also included a fine, was announced by MLB Senior Vice-President Joe Garagiola Jr. Workmans high-and-tight pitch came after the teams had been warned about further trouble. "That was ascertained in the video. Thus, I think thats appropriate," Rays manager Joe Maddon said before Tuesday nights game at Miami. Red Sox first baseman Mike Carp was hit on the arm Friday by a fourth-inning pitch from Tampa Bay ace David Price, who also plunked slugger David Ortiz on the hip in the first inning -- triggering umpires to issue warnings to both teams. The fact Workman was disciplined and Price wasnt did not sit well with the Red Sox and Ortiz in particular, who again criticized the Rays ace prior to Tuesdays game against the Indians. "I dont think what theyre doing is fair," Ortiz said. "I think the rules should be for everybody. We didnt start this up. I didnt hit nobody. Workman didnt hit anybody in the first inning. He did." Ortiz was critical of Price following that game and didnt back down from those comments Tuesday when news of Workmans suspension reached Bostons clubhouse. "Im not going to get hit again," Ortiz said.dddddddddddd"Not by him. He did it on purpose. He punked me and thats very disrespectful. Im a grown man. Ive been around the league for a long time and I know how to take care of business on my own." Said Maddon: "Papi and I have had a pretty good relationship in the past. Sometimes commentary oversteps and overreaches." "Id like to believe if he had more of an opportunity to think about it, he would respond differently. For us, its a dead issue. I want us to move it along and just play baseball," he said. Red Sox manager John Farrell, who was ejected from Fridays game, took a diplomatic approach. "All you can do is put forth your best efforts to state a case that we were directly involved with, and whats done is done," he said. "Theres an appeal thats going to take place. I know we presented our case in response to the discussions and what was being talked about with MLB." After being hit Carp glared out at the mound, shouting and pointing at Price, but was restrained by Rays catcher Jose Molina as players from both teams charged out of the dugouts and bullpens. There was some pushing and shoving, but no punches were thrown. Workman threw a high pitch in the sixth behind Longoria, who was visibly upset. Longoria and Boston catcher A.J. Pierzynski had a conversation at home plate, and a handful of players from both dugouts ventured a few steps onto the field, but no trouble ensued. Workman was ejected. ' ' '

With the 2015 CFL Combine (Mar. 27-29) and CFL Draft (TBA) approaching on the offseason calendar, TSN.ca profiles some of the prospects who could be taken this spring. When you read the bio on 67 UNLV offensive lineman Brett Boyko, it might surprise you to learn that the Saskatoon native sometimes played quarterback in high school - and received encouragement from a CFL Hall of Fame quarterback while doing so. I met him in Saskatoon when he was just in high school, TSN CFL analyst Matt Dunigan mentioned this week. I was involved with Glen Suitor and his football camp and established a relationship with (his mother) Pat and Brett. I encouraged him to continue to play QB because he had all the tools, and if he did not continue to develop those skills, the position would pass him by. I like Matt a lot, hes a great guy, Boyko told TSN from Florida. I had a blast meeting him. He was actually one of the reasons why I started playing quarterback in high school. Hes a great dude. After playing two years on the defensive line, Boyko played quarterback for his varsity high school team in his last year. It was an experience he remembers fondly. It was awesome playing quarterback and having the ball in my hands and having that much control, Boyko said. I told him he would always be 67 and large so he could use that to his advantage in another position if QB did not work out, added Dunigan. QB would not be in Boykos future but he did make the most of his size. After high school he received offers to join Washington State and UNLV. He chose the Runnin Rebels who wanted him to be an offensive lineman on the left side. It took a bit of time to adjust to the new position. When I came in first year I could barely pass set. I struggled to go backwards and remain strong, Boyko explained. (I) didnt really understand the concepts of defence. Had some trouble learning the playbook, just understanding what an offensive lineman really looks for and how they kind of manage the game for themselves. With time, Boyko developed into one of the best offensive linemen in the Mountain West Conference. He was named a conference all-star at left tackle a couple of times and is currently the No. 1 ranked CFL prospect in the 2015 CFL Draft. As I progressed I kept learning more, you watched film and you had the opportunity to break down yourself as well as other people, Boyko said. I always enjoyed watching NFL tackles and seeing what they do and how they play and (I) try and mimic what they do on the field. Theres still lots I need to work on but Im continuing to do so. While it wasnt the quarterback position, playing left tackle has its share of responsibility that appealed to Boyko. As an athlete and a competitor you want to have some responsibility. Being a quarterback you have the responsibility to organize everything so playing left tackle I enjoyed the aspect of protecting the quarterbacks blind side, Boyko mentioned. I put a lot pressure on myself to get the job done and I enjoyed that. You know youre going against some of the best pass rushers on every team that you play and it was a fun competition. Growing up in Saskatchewan, Boykos boyhood dream was to play for the Roughriders. Being ranked No. 1 by the CFLs scouting bureau is something he respects and makes him proud. There was a time I didnt know what the NFL was, Boyko explained. I was a CFL fan obviously and because of that theres kind of an extra excitement because that was the initial goal. Before I found out what the NFL was, the initial goal was to play in the CFL and to be ranked like that is an honour. With his success at UNLV, Boyko has the NFLs attention. An elbow injury in his final game this season kept him out of the recent NCAA Shrine Game but he has accepted an invitation to the NFL Combine where he hopes to showcase himself to scouts. Some publications have Boyko being selected in the later rounds of the NFL Draft or receiving a free agent invite. Even though hes not likely to end up in the CFL anytime soon, Boyko has a fan in Matt Dunigan. I have kept in touch with the family over the years and have watched very closely the development of Brett as a football player at UNLV and as a young man, Dunigan told us. (Hes a) tremendous kid with a ton of talent and desire to utilize his skills to play the game of football. Hes persevered through plenty of adversity while playing for the Rebels and proved to be a warrior, showing the tough Saskatoon and Saskatchewan mentality all the while. Im proud to know Brett and his wonderful family. Next week we will profile No. 3 ranked CFL Draft prospect Daryl Waud, a defensive tackle from Western University. Air Max 2008 Sale .

"No," Triplett said. "Were just going to say the sample size is still very small."

"Ive never won out here on this side of the world," Triplett said. "Im a West Coast guy through and through, so to win on this Bermuda grass is, I think, a little bit of a minor miracle for me." Langer, the defending champion, Duffy Waldorf and Olin Browne tied for second. Playing in the final threesome, Triplett, Langer and Waldorf were tied for the lead with a hole to play. In Tripletts last win at Pebble Beach, he also was paired with Langer, who has owned this event the last three years, winning in 2011 and 2013 and finishing second behind Kenny Perry in 2012. "Hes awesome to play with," Triplett said. "Im telling you, you know the guy, hes such a great competitor and hes such a nice man. We were joking last week, If you shot one shot worse than Bernhhard every day all year, what would you finish on the money list? Somebody goes, Second, right? because it just feels that way sometimes.dddddddddddd." On the par-4 18th, Waldorf drove into a bunker and wound up with a bogey for a 66. "I hit a bad drive," he said. "So I mean, it was a bad drive. The pin was in a tough spot. I laid up fine, but I spun my wedge a lot and just didnt -- I didnt hit it close enough to have a chance for par." Admittedly using the wrong club, Langers second shot sailed left, and his 12-footer for par curled around the cup for bogey and a 67. Tripletts second shot from a divot landed about 25 feet from the pin. His birdie putt went past the hole and he made the 6-footer for the victory. "You want to make birdies but you dont want to make bogeys and youre thinking to yourself, 4s not going to lose this probably, " Triplett said. "I mean, it might. If it does, if it loses the 18th hole, you look the guy in the eye, shake his hand and say, Well done, sir. "It wasnt the best (putt) I made all day, but it was good enough." Langer has finished in the top 10 in 40 of the last 48 tournaments hes played in. The German star won the season-opening event in Hawaii last month for his 19th Champions Tour title. Waldorf, coming off a playoff loss to Michael Allen last week in Boca Raton in the Allianz Championship, almost holed out on the par-3 16th. ' ' '

SHANGHAI - Bubba Watson captured his first World Golf Championship with a stunning turnaround Sunday when he holed a bunker shot for eagle on the 18th hole to get into a playoff, and then made a 20-foot birdie putt to beat Tim Clark and win the HSBC Champions.The 10th edition of the HSBC Champions was the wildest one of them all.Watson had a two-shot lead with three holes to play until he appeared to throw it all away. He missed the 16th green with a lob wedge and made bogey, and then took two shots to get out of a bunker on the par-3 17th and made double bogey to fall one shot behind a five-way tie for the lead.The two-time Masters champion was fidgety and irritated at any movement around him, even stopping at the top of his swing from the bunker left of the green on the par-5 18th hole because of a camera click from the hospitality suite. But angst turned to joy when he blasted onto the green and watched the ball roll some 25 feet into the cup for eagle.You always joke about holing it, Watson said. And then it actually went in. So I didnt know how to react, and so I just kind of screamed and I lost my voice a little bit. It was one of those shots — one-in-a-lifetime kind of shot.He closed with a 2-under 70.Clark was the only player from the five-way tie to join Watson at 11-under 277. He laid up on the 18th and hit wedge to 5 feet for birdie and a 69. In the playoff, his wedge was to the right edge of the green about 25 feet away. The putt was on line, but short.Never expected to be in that position start of the week, Clark said. I fought hard. I knew I needed to birdie that playoff, especially with him being able to reach. Im pleased overall. Obviously, disappointed to be that close.At least he had a chance.Rickie Fowler, in the group with Watson and Clark, was tied for the lead when he tried to reach the green with a 5-wood from 228 yards, but it rolled back into the water. He scrambled for par and a 70.I misjudged how it was going to play, Fowler said.All three players in the final group failed to make birdie.Graeme McDowell, trying to complete a wire-to-wire win, missed a 12-foot birdie attempt and shot 73. Hiroshi Iwata (72) missed an 8-foot birdie putt. Martin Kaymers wedge for his third shot bounded off the green to the right and went into the water, leading to double bogey. He had a 73.Watson became the 14th player to win a major and a World Golf Championship, and it capped off his best calendar year — the Northern Trust Open at Riviera in February, another green jacket at the Masters in April, and a WGC title in China that he nearly let slip through his fingers.That his WGC title was in China was even more meaningful.For my own personal career, this is big for me to win outside the U.S., to say that I can travel a little bit and win instead of just one place, Watson said.Both big moments — the bunker shot and the winning putt — produced more high-charged emotion than either of his two Masters victories. With a world-class field, this tournament came down to six players over the final 30 minutes.The final group — McDowell, Iwata and Kaymer — were so shocked to see the leaderboard when they reached the 16th green that they asked if it was correct. They had been chasing. Suddenly, they were tied at 10 under, and Watson was trailing.Thats why I went for the green on 16, Kaymer said. I thought if I can make 3 there, I can square with Bubba. And I saw that he made double bogey on 17, so all of a sudden, there were five guys in the lead.Watson at that moment appeared to be the least likely of the bunch to hold the trophy.Kaymer took two chips to get on the 16th green and had to scramble for par. Iwata was just over the back of the green with his tee shot on the par-4 16th, but he stubbed his chip and two-putted for par. McDowell narrowly missed an 18-foot birdie. All had their chances on the 18th to catch Watson and Clark.Watson moved up to No. 3 in the world, making him the highest-ranked American. Walter Payton Jersey .

BOSTON -- Chicagos D.J. Augustin put an end to a series of pesky rallies by the Boston Celtics. Augustin hit a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 2:01 remaining, then continued a perfect night from the foul line while scoring a career-high 33 points for the Bulls in a 107-102 win over Boston. Augustin scored 15 in the fourth, including six points from the foul line as the Bulls held off the slumping Celtics. "Even though we didnt play great defence tonight, we pulled it out and we know what we have to fix," said Augustin, whose previous career high was 31 points scored against Philadelphia in January 2011. "I really dont follow that. Some of my teammates told me. Its a great accomplishment, but Im glad we got the win." Joakim Noah finished with 13 points, 13 assists and eight rebounds for Chicago two nights after it was routed at home by Portland. "That is how we have to win. Our margin of error is not great," Chicago coach Tom Thibodeau said. "Weve got to play with great intensity each and every night." The Bulls, who avoided losing consecutive games for the first time in nearly two months, will go for a three-game season sweep against the Celtics on Monday night in Chicago. Carlos Boozer scored 14, Kirk Hinrich and Mike Dunleavy added 11 points apiece and all five Chicago starters scored in double figures. Chicago made up for its rebounding struggles by making 25 of 31 foul shots, including 11 of 14 in the fourth quarter. "They were big, especially at the end," Augustin said. "If we had missed a couple of those foul shots, we dont know what the outcome of the game would have been because they made some big 3s at the end," Augustin said. Rajon Rondo had 17 points and 11 assists for Boston, which has lost four straight and nine of 10. Jeff Green and Jared Sullinger scored 16 points each for Boston and Sullinger puulled down 10 rebounds.dddddddddddd. Kris Humphries added 14 points and eight rebounds as Boston outrebounded Chicago 39-31, but could not stop Augustin in the fourth. "You can look at it a couple of different ways, but we hate losing," Rondo said. "Weve got to find a way eventually to win some of these games. Theyre very winnable. Were just not closing the games the right way." The Celtics kept the Bulls from making a run early in the fourth quarter, matching nearly every basket and continuing to outrebound Chicago. Boston grabbed two offensive rebounds on one possession and Brandon Bass putback gave the Celtics an 87-86 lead. Noah drew a foul on the other end and hit both free throws, Hinrich added a 3-pointer and Augustin made a reverse layup to put the Bulls up 93-87 with 4:36 left. Rondo answered with a 3-pointer for Boston, then Sullinger blocked a layup attempt by Augustin to set up a fast-break 3-pointer by Green to pull Boston back within a basket. Green hit again from beyond-the-arc after a foul shot by Noah and the score was tied at 96 with 2:13 remaining. Augustin broke the tie with his third 3-pointer of the game, then made a steal on an inbounds play that all but ended Bostons chances. Augustin drew a foul and made both free throws, then added four more from the line as the Celtics were forced to foul. Augustins two free throws with 22 seconds left put Chicago up 105-99 and the margin was too much for Boston to overcome.

The 23-year-old rookie notched a hat trick in Abbotsfords 6-3 victory over the visiting Rockford IceHogs, despite being outshot 48-18 in the American Hockey League matchup. Although Knight admitted his goals werent the most highlight-reel type of goals, he made them count when he got the chance. "It was definitely a relief to get that first one," Knight said. "Then after that it was just kind of one of those nights where things were kind of going well for me offensively … You look at my goals and none of them were really that flashy, so it was just nice to get that off my back and contribute offensively for my team." Knight said his first professional hat trick couldnt have happened without the help of his linemates Sven Baertschi and Tim Miller. "Baertschis been putting up a lot of points and producing offensively," said Knight. "(Millers) the kind of guy where he just brings his lunch pail and just works hard and gets a lot of pucks back. Tonight it was just kind of clicking for us." Miller said theres no mistaking the dynamic between Knight and Baertschi on the ice. "I got the notice in the pre-game skate that I was going to play with those guys," Miller said. "You can tell the talent those two have out there. Its my job to still play physical, try to create room for them in the offensive zone and get to the net." Knight scored back-to-back goals in the first period. The High River, Alta., native tipped a shot from Max Reinhart over Jason LaBarberas left shoulder to give his team a 2-1 edge on the power play at 16:40 of the first period. His second goal came just over a minute later at 18:04 as Miller took advantage on a Rockford turnover in the IceHogs zone, feeding the puck across the crease to Knight, who buried it short side. Baertschi had two goals and three assists for Abbotsford (38-25-7), while Miller picked up a goal and two helpers. "That line had an oppportunistic night — they did a good job finishing," said Abbotsford head coach Troy Ward.dddddddddddd "We thought Miller was our best player … I thought he had his best game by far for the Heat. He just opens up space for those other guys. He played honest, he played hard, and he gives Corban and Sven some space." Joni Ortio stopped 45 of the 48 shots he faced in the victory. "He made some big time saves at really important times, so he was huge for us tonight," Knight said. "I dont think we wouldve won that game without him playing the way he did." Mark McNeill and Alex Broadhurst each had a goal and an assist for Rockford (33-27-9). LaBarbera allowed four goals on 12 shots in the loss, while Kent Simpson stopped five shots in a relief effort. "It was a tough night and kind of weird game out there," said Knight. "The feel of the game was just weird, but fortunately we got the win, so well put it behind us and get ready for tomorrow." McNeill opened the scoring at 3:05 of the first as he powered around Abbotsfords Zach Davies, cut to the crease and roofed it over Ortios glove. Broadhurst and Klas Dahlbeck picked up assists. At 11:25 of the first, Miller picked up Heat captain Dean Arsenes point shot and buried the rebound into an open net to tie the game. Less than a minute into the second period, Alex Broadhurst received a Terry Broadhurst pass from behind the net and quickly put it past the outstretched left pad of Ortio. Knight scored his hat trick goal at 7:28 of the second, flipping the puck on net from behind the goal-line, and squeaking it just between the goal post and LaBarberas left shoulder. Baertschi added to Abbotsfords lead by feeding an intended pass through the crease that deflected off of a Rockford defender at 13:49 of the second. The IceHogs responded on the power play at 16:21 as Brian Connelly fed Adam Clendening at the point, who then fired it through traffic to cut Abbotsfords lead to 5-3. Baertschi added an empty-net goal from centre ice with 0:41 remaining in the game. ' ' '

Speaking to The Associated Press on Friday at an NBA Cares event, Silver said hes thrilled that the leagues attention can be on the championship series between the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs -- and not, as it was for so much of the post-season, on the off-the-court matters involving the banishment of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling and now the looming sale of that franchise.Foxboro, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh called Joe Flacco the NFLs best quarterback last week. Tom Brady had something to say about that this week. Bradys 367 yards and three touchdowns, the last a go-ahead 23-yard strike to Brandon LaFell with 5;13 remaining, rallied the New England Patriots to a 35-31 AFC Divisional Playoff victory over Harbaughs Ravens at Gillette Stadium. The fourth postseason meeting between the teams in six years was another classic, with the Patriots twice battling back from 14 points down -- including a 28-14 deficit midway through the third quarter -- and not taking their first lead until Bradys final TD delivery of the day. New England also overcome a career postseason-best four touchdown throws from Flacco, though his second interception of the game virtually ended Baltimores own comeback hopes with 1:39 left to play. Hats off to our team. They worked hard this week, said Patriots head coach Bill Belichick. It certainly wasnt our best game -- well need to play a lot better next week, whoever we play -- but its good to win. The top-seeded Patriots advanced to their fourth straight AFC Championship Game, where theyll await the winner of Sundays Indianapolis-Denver clash. Bradys yardage total and 33 completions in 50 attempts each shattered his own franchise records for a playoff game, while the three-time Super Bowl champs connection with LaFell gave him 46 career postseason touchdown passes to break the leagues all-time record held by Bradys boyhood idol, Joe Montana. He also ran for a touchdown. Hes a pretty good quarterback, Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs said of Brady. He sat in there and made the plays they needed him to make. Rob Gronkowski caught one of Bradys touchdown throws in a 7-reception, 108- yard effort. Danny Amendola finished with a pair of touchdown grabs for New England, including a 51-yard catch from wide receiver Julian Edelman on a trick play in the third quarter. Flacco, aiming to extend his own NFL record with an eighth career playoff win on the road, ended with 292 yards on a 28-of-45 completion rate. Justin Forsett had a touchdown catch while running for 129 yards on 24 carries for Baltimore, which owns two of the three victories by visiting teams against New England in the Brady/Belichick era and very nearly pulled off a third. The Ravens owned a 31-28 lead following Justin Tuckers 25-yard field goal with 10:17 remaining, before Brady sent New England ahead with a terrific performance on the ensuing drive. He completed 8-of-9 attempts while marching the Patriots 74 yards in 10 plays, with Amendola coming up with a key 6-yard catch on 3rd-and-6 to move the chains at the Baltimore 38. Three snaps later, Brady launched a perfect downfield throw that LaFell cradled down the left sideline for the go-ahead -- and record-setting -- score. Flaccos 17-yard hookup with Owen Daniels on 4th-and-3 had the Ravens in New England territory at the two-minute warning, but he overthrew Torrey Smith on a deep route and New Englands Duron Harmon picked off the pass in the end zone to just about seal the outcome. The Ravens did get back the ball near midfield with four seconds left. However, Flaccos Hail Mary heave into the end zone was knocked away as time expired. Youve got to give credit to (New England), said Flacco. They dont panic, they just play the game and keep at it. They got themselves back in the game, we pulled away, (then) they were in striking distance and they made the play. Flaccos fourth touchdown toss of the afternoon, a 16-yarder to Forsett, staked Baltimore to a 28-14 advantage early in the third quarter. The battle- tested Pats were undaunted, however, as Brady engineered touchdowns on the next two possesssions.dddddddddddd. After 9-play, 80-yard sequence in which Brady threw on every down resulted in Gronkowskis 5-yard touchdown catch, New England wasted little time striking again after its defense induced a three-and-out. Brady initially looked downfield before tossing the ball behind the line of scrimmage to Edelman, who hit an uncovered Amendola in stride to draw the Patriots even with 4:20 to go in the third quarter. Weve had it in for 10 weeks, and the coaches finally got to call it, Edelman said of the play. I had to loosen up the arm a little bit. A sack of Flacco and fumble recovery by Jamie Collins deep in the Ravens own end on the following series was negated by a defensive holding call on Darrelle Revis, and Baltimore capitalized on the penalty. The Ravens moved into scoring range behind several strong runs from Forsett, though they ended up settling for Tuckers field goal when Daniels couldnt come down with Flaccos third-down pass in the end zone. Flacco was right on the mark during Baltimores first two drives of the game, both of which resulted in touchdowns to stake the Ravens to a 14-0 lead. He went 4-for-4 for 69 yards on the opening series as Baltimore reached the end zone in just five plays, the last a 19-yard catch by Kamar Aiken on a well-executed play fake by Flacco that began the scoring just 2:42 in. Flacco hit on 5-of-6 throws to complement a pair of long runs from Forsett on the Ravens next possession, which ended when Steve Smith beat Revis to make a juggling 9-yard touchdown catch on 3rd-and-7. Two big plays from Gronkowski, a 16-yard reception on 3rd-and-8 and a 46-yard connection with Brady, helped New England close the gap on the following drive. Brady cut the lead to 14-7 by scrambling into the end zone from four yards out on a 3rd-and-goal play in the final minute of the first quarter. The Patriots converted two more third downs on Brady completions, one a 23- yard strike to Gronkowski, on a game-tying 10-play trek late in the second quarter. Amendola capped it by shaking free of a tackle on a short catch and diving across the goal line for a 15-yard touchdown 3:37 before halftime. Bradys lone critical mistake of the day came on New Englands next offensive set, as he failed to recognize Daryl Smith in underneath coverage and the veteran linebacker intercepted the intended pass for Gronkowski at the Ravens 43. After a 20-yard pass interference penalty on Revis put the Ravens deep into New England territory, Daniels came down with Flaccos pinpoint back-shoulder throw into a tight window for an 11-yard touchdown that sent Baltimore into the half up 21-14. A gutsy 4th-and-6 call on its initial series of the second half enabled Baltimore to extend the lead, as Torrey Smith hauled in Flaccos deep pass while being mugged by Brandon Browner at the Patriots 1-yard line. Though the wideouts taunting penalty pushed the ball back 15 yards, Flacco found a wide- open Forsett in the flat on the ensuing snap to restore the 14-point differential. Game Notes The win was the 20th for Belichick in the postseason, tying him with Dallas Cowboys legend Tom Landry for the most by a head coach in league history ... In addition to breaking Montanas mark, Brady became the NFLs all-time leader in postseason passing yards with 6,791 ... Brady posted his seventh career 300-yard passing game in the playoffs, second only to Peyton Manning in NFL history ...

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