WASHINGTON -- For the first time since his knee surgery in May, John Wall played in back-to-back games, and the result was a rare win for the Washington Wizards. James Winchester Jersey .Wall scored 23 points and had 11 assists and Otto Porter added 21 points as the Wizards won for just the third time in 11 games, beating the New York Knicks 119-112 on Thursday night.Wall sat out games in the first two Washington back-to-backs this season, and the Wizards lost both times.After Wednesday nights disheartening loss to the 76ers where Wall played 24 minutes, Washington coach Scott Brooks felt his star guard was ready to go again.There was going to be a time during the season where he was going to have to play back-to-back, Brooks said. The way he was progressing during the last four or five weeks, we felt that it was a good time.Brooks didnt want to play Wall more than 32 minutes, and when the Wizards opened up a 27-point lead late in the third quarter, it looked as if Wall could play much less than that.But New York scored 47 points in the fourth quarter, and Brooks put Wall back in the game in the final minutes.Once the Knicks went on a 12-0 run to cut the lead to 108-98 with 2:37 to play, Wall secured the win with two late baskets and four free throws.New York was led by Derrick Rose with 27. Carmelo Anthony scored 19, and Kristaps Porzingis, who had a career-high 35 against Detroit on Wednesday night, was held to 16. Brandon Jennings had 15 of his season-high 17 points in the fourth quarter.WHAT WALL BRINGSBrooks liked much about Walls game.He had a major impact in the first half, and I think he only had two points, Brooks said. There are a few players in the league that can impact a game with passing and defense, and hes one of them.Wall had been eager to test himself, and was confident he passed the test.I dont like to miss games. I felt like I could have played earlier, but it was just part of what the doctors plan was, Wall said.LACK OF EFFORTDespite the late fourth quarter charge, Rose didnt necessarily like what he saw from his teammates.Tonight was effort, Rose said. When we see someone down or we see someone where things are not clicking, thats when weve got to come together as a team. So its still early in the year. Weve still got a lot more games to play. It just takes time.DEFENSE LACKINGNew York allowed a season high in points and Washington shot 54.3 percent.Some of that is guys are wide open. Theres a few of them that were contested, but we looked like we were a little tired from last night and we werent getting all the way up on the guys. And to win on the road, youve got to play good defense, coach Jeff Hornacek said.TIP-INSKnicks: F Lance Thomas missed his third straight game with a sore left ankle. ...

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- It was one of those sequences where everyone in the building could feel a goal coming.With the Vancouver Canucks trailing 1-0 late in the third period Saturday night, Henrik and Daniel Sedin, along with new linemate Loui Eriksson, played keepaway in the Calgary zone for the majority of a two-minute shift, searching for the tying goal against the weary Flames.(The Sedins) have that ability. Theyre big-game players, and they sense it, Canucks head coach Willie Desjardins said. Their whole careers been that way.They know they have the other team on the ropes and they go after it.Henrik Sedin finally found an opening when he fed the puck between his legs to Eriksson, whose deflected pass in front was batted home by Daniel Sedin with 3:51 left in regulation. Brandon Sutter then capped the night with the only goal of the shootout as Vancouver beat Calgary 2-1.It felt really good at the time, Daniel Sedin said of the shift that saw the Canucks finally break through. They were tired. They were just standing still. It was nice to see it go in.Sutter beat Calgary goalie Chad Johnson through the five-hole on the winner in the fourth round of the shootout after Ryan Miller, who made 25 saves through overtime, stopped all four attempts by the Flames at the other end.We just stuck with it, Sutter said. We bounced back well and that shift that Danny, Hank and Loui put in for two minutes was pretty impressive.Troy Brouwer was credited with the games first goal in the opening period after Eriksson, who was making his Vancouver debut, put the puck into his own net on a delayed penalty. Johnson made 30 stops in his first start for Calgary which remained winless through three games (0-2-1).Calgary opened the scoring at 9:14 of the first after Miller went to the Vancouver bench for an extra attacker with Brouwer about to be penalized for holding. Eriksson circled away from the Flames blue line before throwing a pass towards his own zone from near centre in hopes of finding a teammate.The only problem was the Canucks were in the middle of a lline change, and defenceman Erik Gudbranson couldnt get back in time before the puck slid across the goal line in front of a stunned Rogers Arena crowd. Jan Stenerud Jersey. Ive never seen anything like that, Brouwer said. It was a bizarre sequence. I have never scored a goal and gone to the box at the same time.The goal was originally credited to Brett Kulak -- which would have been the first of the rookie defensemans NHL career -- but was later given to Brouwer, who now has two on the year.I dont think Ive ever scored a goal where I didnt touch the puck, Brouwer said.In another twist, the goal also went into the stat line as an empty netter because Miller was already off the ice.Its a weird way to catalog it, said Miller. Didnt let one in and dont get the shutout, but to get a win on opening night and help get us started in the right direction, I would have taken anything.For his part, Eriksson said he didnt even realize Miller had left his crease.As soon as I put it up there I saw it was an empty net and I was like: `What is going on here, Eriksson said. It slowly just glided in there. That was a tough one, but we won the game. Thats the important thing.The Flames and Canucks are both coming off disappointing 2015-16 campaigns that saw them miss the playoffs after making the postseason the previous year.But while Calgary is expected to rebound, Vancouver has been picked by many experts to finish at the bottom of the standings.We stuck with our game plan and didnt panic, Daniel Sedin said. I thought overall we played a decent game.Game notes The Canucks were the last of the NHLs 30 teams to open the regular season, while the Flames opened with losses to Edmonton in a home-and-home set. ... Calgary gave up 12 goals in the two losses to Edmonton after allowing a league-high 260 last season.UP NEXTFlames: At Buffalo on Tuesday night.Canucks: Host Carolina on Sunday night in the second game of their season-opening four-game homestand.

Reggie White Super Bowl Jersey .Joaquins two crosses for first-half goals by defenders Bruno Gonzalez and Aissa Mandi earned the 2-0 win over Las Palmas in Seville.Betis found the weak spot in Las Palmas set-piece defense and Joaquin exploited it with two crisp corner kicks to the near post where Gonzales and Mandi scored from close.We are very happy for the win and to see the team has a clear plan, Gonzales said.Betis hired Sanchez last week to take the team over following its firing of Gus Poyet after four losses in its previous five matches. Sanchez, a former Real Madrid player, had been jobless since he was sacked by Greek club Olympiakos in August after just two months in charge.Sanchez opted for a new five-man defense and it succeeded in limiting Las Palmas attack to a few early threats.The win over Las Palmas lifted Betis into 12th place before the rest of the matches of the 12th round are played.Las Palmas, which has cooled off after a great start to the season, remained in ninth place with only one win in the last eight rounds.We werent sharp today, Las Palmas Vincente Gomez said.

DENVER -- Broncos outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware fractured his right forearm, and the team will try to determine Monday what that injury will mean for his 2016 season. Custom Packers Jerseys .Ware suffered a fracture to his ulna, the smaller bone of the forearm that is on the side of the arm opposite of the thumb, early in the second half of Sundays 34-20 win over the?Indianapolis Colts. The Broncos?will send Ware for additional exams to see whether surgery to repair the fracture will be necessary.We have to see in the morning, actually, what the case is going to be -- if its something he can play with or if its something that has to be fixed,?Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said.Ware was cradling his arm as he walked to the sideline with 14 minutes to play in the third quarter, and he was taken to the locker room. He was injured when he collided with Broncos linebacker?Von Miller?as they pursued Colts quarterback Andrew Luck?in the pocket. Luck escaped for an 11-yard scramble, but the play?was nullified by a holding penalty on Colts tight end Jack Doyle.Ware went without a tackle Sunday but was credited with an assist and a half-sack, which tied him with?Green Bay Packers?linebacker?Julius Peppers?for 11th all-time in sacks. Their 136 career sacks lead active players.Ware missed much of the teams offseason program and all of training camp and did not play in any of the Broncos four preseason games because of back troubles. The Broncos made that move to try to get him to the regular season and planned to regulate his snap count during games to try to keep him healthy.He missed five games last season with similar back troubles before returning to play well down the stretch and into the postseason. In the season opener against the Carolina Panthers, Ware had 1.5 sacks and played 32 defensive snaps against the Panthers.I feel like D-Ware, hes battled some injuries, Miller?said. Hell be right back, though. Thats just the type of pro that he is. Hell be able to fight through it.This year, league rules allow a player who is moved to injured reserve to return to the roster during the season. As such, if the Broncos decide that Ware needs surgery or time to heal without surgery, he could be placed on injured reserve and return to the roster before the season is over.

Donnie Tyndall has filed an appeal to reverse the 10-year show cause penalty he received from the NCAA in April for violations that occurred while he was coaching Southern Mississippi. Air Force 1 Online Store .Tyndall confirmed Wednesday he was seeking a full overturning or reversal of the penalty and that he would take the case to court if the appeal isnt granted.The NCAA said in April it gave Tyndall the show-cause penalty for orchestrating academic fraud designed to land recruits as well as other misconduct that included trying to cover up payments to athletes and potential evidence. Tyndall was fired as Tennessees coach in March 2015 due to the possibility the NCAA might penalize him.Tyndall said he should have received nothing more than a nine-game suspension, the penalties Syracuses Jim Boeheim and SMUs Larry Brown received after NCAA investigations of their programs.I should have never lost my job at Tennessee, Tyndall said. It should have been just what Jim Boeheim and Larry Brown got. We want a full overturning or reversal of the decision, and thats what it should be.The NCAA ruled in its 47-page report in April that Tyndall acted unethically and failed to promote an atmosphere for compliance when he directed his staff to engage in academic misconduct while coaching Southern Mississippi from 2012-14.Southern Mississippi self-imposed a two-year postseason ban that took effect in 2015. The program is under probation until 2020 and will lose four more scholarships over the next three years.Tyndalls show-cause penalty -- which essentially makes him unemployable at the NCAA level -- runs through April 7, 2026. Even if he is employed after that date, he must sit out 50 percent of his teams first full season.Tyndall said that much of the NCAAs case depends on the testimony of Adam Howard, a former assistant coach on his staff. He also says Howard had changed his story after originally indicating no knowledge that Tyndall had been involved in academic fraud.Howard worked with Tyndalls staff at Southern Mississippi and followed him to Tennessee before resigning in November 2014 for what the school described at the time as personal reasons. Howards departure came less than three weeks after Southern Mississippi announced the NCAA was reviewing its program.Thats not what our country is about, Tyndall said. Theres nobody who should lose their job and career based on what one person says with no proof or evidence. Its that simple. So Im going to fight for the next group of coaches. Hopefully they never have to go through something like this.Howard didnt immediately respond to a text message seeking comment. Southern Mississippi athletic department spokesman Jack Duggan said the school declined comment on the appeal. Tennessee athletic department spokesman Tom Satkowiak said it wouldnt be appropriate for the university to comment on the matter.The actual NCAA report filed in April withholds the names of people involved in the investigation. Even Tyndall himself is referred to as a former head coach.Included in the report were allegations that Tyndall directed members of his staff to complete fraudulent coursework for seven prospects so they could be immediately eligible to compete. The NCAA also said three staff members were told to travel to two-year colleges to complete the coursework.According to the report, the former head coach also facilitated cash and prepaid credit card payments to two prospects from former coaches. The report said that one former high school coach mailed the money directly to the former head coach, who would then deliver the money to the student-athlete for university bills.The NCAA report also said Tyndall also deleted emails relevant to the investigation. The report cited phone records indicating Tyndall made call after call to others being interviewed by the NCAA.Three assistant coaches from Tyndalls Southern Mississippi staff also were penalized in April. One was hit with an eight-year show cause, one has a seven-year penalty and the other was six years.Tyndall went 56-17 at Southern Mississippi and reached the NIT each of his two seasons at the school before leaving for Tennessee. He went 16-16 in his lone season at Tennessee.

Heavyweight titleholder Deontay Wilder has had one surgical procedure already on his broken right hand and will have another one on it -- as well as his torn right biceps -- probably later this week, trainer and co-manager Jay Deas told ESPN.com on Monday.Wilder broke his hand and tore his biceps in a dominant eighth-round knockout of Chris Arreola to retain his world title for the fourth time on July 16 in front of a home state crowd at Legacy Arena in Birmingham, Alabama.Wilder suffered the injuries in the fourth round, during which he dropped Arreola and nearly knocked him out but then stopped using his right hand, his best weapon, for the rest of the fight.Deas said Wilder had a very minor surgery this past Tuesday in which the doctor inserted temporary pins his hand and lined up his bones to help speed up the time it takes for the severe swelling in the hand to go down.They secured his hand so the swelling will go down and when it has gone down sufficiently they can go in and correct what needs to be corrected in another surgery, Deas said.Deas said the tentative schedule is for Wilder to have hand surgery on Thursday or Friday. At the same time, the plan is also to have the needed surgery on his damaged biceps.We are trying to coordinate both surgeries at the same time so Deontay is not in a cast for three or four months while his hand heals and then needs to still get his biceps done after that, Deas said. Air Max 270 Store. . Having them both at the same time is a way to cut down on the recovery time he needs.The blessing in disguise is that even though the hand surgery is much more complicated than the biceps surgery the biceps takes longer to heal. So Deontays hand will be well before his biceps, which will give his hand even more time to rest because he will have to wait for the biceps to be clear before he can use the hand. The hand will be better than it will have been in years.Wilder (37-0, 36 KOs), 30, of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, is almost surely out for the rest of 2016. This is at least the third time Wilder, a devastating puncher, has broken his right hand. After a first-round knockout of Travis Allen in 2009 (Wilders seventh professional fight), Wilder had right hand surgery during which pins were inserted to stabilize it. The shots he landed on Arreola were so powerful that he bent those pins.Wilder also suffered a stress fracture in the same spot during his world title victory against Bermane Stiverne in January 2015, although he did not require a second surgery.

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Cubs have the best defense in baseball. It might be the best team defense weve seen in some time -- quite some time.Historically, so much of defensive evaluation has been anecdotal and, therefore, inconclusive. Even now, with rivers of data flowing into our collective hardball consciousness, we havent reached the point where we can make specific judgments about defense with any real certainty. Still, I am more or less certain that the Cubs are playing unusually special defense.Just through a natural progression, maturity-wise, some guys have just gotten better, Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. Because theyre good. Were making the rroutine play routinely. Colin Kaepernick Super Bowl Jersey. Weve made some pretty spectacular plays all over the field.The anecdotal evidence of those is all over the place, and the evidence mounts with each game.

They can run, they have excellent instincts and terrific technique, and they are usually well-positioned by the Cubs coaching staff. They make plays both routine and spectacular. ' ' '

Having them both at the same time is a way to cut down on the recovery time he needs.The blessing in disguise is that even though the hand surgery is much more complicated than the biceps surgery the biceps takes longer to heal. So Deontays hand will be well before his biceps, which will give his hand even more time to rest because he will have to wait for the biceps to be clear before he can use the hand. The hand will be better than it will have been in years.Wilder (37-0, 36 KOs), 30, of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, is almost surely out for the rest of 2016. This is at least the third time Wilder, a devastating puncher, has broken his right hand. After a first-round knockout of Travis Allen in 2009 (Wilders seventh professional fight), Wilder had right hand surgery during which pins were inserted to stabilize it. The shots he landed on Arreola were so powerful that he bent those pins.Wilder also suffered a stress fracture in the same spot during his world title victory against Bermane Stiverne in January 2015, although he did not require a second surgery.

Orlando City coach Adrian Heath knows his team is facing a tough test when the Lions head to Toyota Stadium to take on high-powered, counter-attacking FC Dallas on Monday in sweltering Frisco, Texas. Samuel Pahlsson Jersey .Orlando City (4-3-8) is riding a five-game unbeaten streak, but sits just below the red line on the Eastern Conference standings with 20 points. The Lions got a game-winner from Kaka in the 10th minutes of stoppage time to beat Toronto FC in their last MLS match.Dallas (9-5-4) is in second place in the Western Conference with 31 points, one point behind first-place Colorado. The Toros have not suffered a loss in their last 16 home games, the best such streak in the MLS. They are coming off a 2-0 victory over Real Salt Lake in their last league game on June 25.Heath described Dallas as a dynamic squad, led by Fabian Castillo and Mauro Diaz. Castillo and Diaz have combined for five goals and five assists in their last two MLS matches, wins against Real Salt Lake and Colorado. Diaz is second in MLS with seven assists.Their attacking threats are very, very good, Heath told the teams website. They are second in the Supporters Shield so they are obviously doing well this season. We know that in the counterattack they are incredibly dangerous and for me its all about concentration. Can we concentrate when we have possession of the ball and they are off? Because thats when they are the most dangerous.The Lions mental toughness and concentration will be tested by the conditions. Temperatures are expected to approach triple digits leading up the 9 p.m. ET kickoff on Monday. The Toros have been able to use the local heat to their advantage, wearing down teams in the second halves of matches.Because Heath fielded a reserve-heavy lineup in a midweek loss to Ft. Lauderdale in U.S. Open Cup play, the core of Orlando Citys roster should be fresh and healthy. The Lions are tied for second in goals scored with 28. Randy Ladouceur Jersey . Then the Pacers gave Oladipo and his Orlando teammates the cold shoulder.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Yu Darvish pumped his fist twice and let out a shout walking off the mound after striking out the final batter he faced for the Texas Rangers.Darvish had a one-run lead and left an Oakland runner stranded at third base to end the sixth inning, but the right-hander from Japan has still gone more than four years without a win over the AL West rival Athletics.Coco Crisp and Khris Davis both hit two-run homers in the eighth off hard-throwing reliever Matt Bush and the As won 6-4 on Wednesday night. It was Davis second homer of the game for the As, who have won four consecutive series for the first time since May 2014.The ball was up and center-cut, manager Jeff Banister said of Bush (3-2). Hes usually down. ... I would say thats what the issue was.Still, the Rangers had to be encouraged by the performance from Darvish after struggling through the first four hitters of the game in only his third start since coming off the disabled list -- and only sixth for Texas since missing all of last season after Tommy John surgery.Texas was down 2-0 after Crisp started the game with a triple into the right-field corner before Jed Lowries sacrifice fly and Davis first homer, a two-out shot. Darvish then retired 16 of the last 18 batters he faced, striking out Davis -- who had also doubled against him -- on a breaking pitch to end the sixth.The team came back, we had a one-run lead, I gave up two hits to the same guy, so I really wanted to get a strikeout and get the momentum going for the team, Darvish said through his interpreter. Thats what I was aiming for, and (the emotional reaction) just happened naturally.Ian Desmond hit his 20th homer for the Rangers, a two-run shot in the fifth that put them ahead 3-2. That came two innings after the All-Star center fielder had a two-out double and scored on Adrian Beltres single.Darvish limited Oakland to two runs and four hits, with six strikeouts and no walks while throwing a season-high 93 pitches (64 strikes). He is 1-8 in 11 career starts against Oakland, the lone win coming May 16, 2012.Plus fastball still. Throwing his breaking ball, As manager Bob Melvin said. Adam Henrique Jersey.

Ryan Madson worked the ninth for his 22nd save in 28 chances, two nights after giving up Beltres game-ending homer in the series opener.While Darvish felt good, he said he said he let it all out against Davis to end his night.Hes engaged, hes determined, he wants this as bad as anybody, he knows what he means to this ballclub in his starts and how valuable they are, Banister said. That reaction, I loved it. It tells me this guy is coming to pitch and play and be a huge part of this.SHORT HOPSIt was Davis 10th career multihomer game, his second this season against the Rangers. He had three homers against him at home May 17. ... Oakland is 6-0-1 in its last seven series at Texas over the last three years.NEW ARMSThe Rangers acquired right-hander Lucas Harrell and left-hander Dario Alvarez from the Atlanta Braves for minor league infielder Travis Demeritte.

The lefty beat the Royals on the road Saturday, when he was also matched up against right-hander Yordano Ventura (6-8). ' ' ' 
With Kobe Bryant gone and the team in desperate need of mature leadership, the Los Angeles Lakers are turning to Luol Deng for help on the court and in the locker room. Jan Stenerud Jersey .The Lakers and Deng agreed to a four-year, $72 million contract Saturday, a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal cannot be signed until Thursday.The 31-year-old Deng averaged 12.3 points and 6.0 rebounds for Miami last season. The high-energy forward has made the playoffs seven times, with the Bulls and Heat, and commands immediate respect with his work ethic and ability to relate to teammates.Thats exactly what Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak sought to help shape an impressionable roster of intriguing young talent for first-year coach Luke Walton. Those youngsters went wayward last season while Bryant concluded his farewell tour. Deng will now join fellow new signee Timofey Mozgov and holdover Lou Williams to provide veteran stability.The Lakers finished at 17-65, the worst record in the franchises proud history, and were plagued by salacious headlines and speculation over how the players responded to the old-school leadership from Bryant and former coach Byron Scott.And the core of the team -- DAngelo Russell, Julius Randle, Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. -- got only younger last month when the Lakers drafted 19-year-old Duke forward Brandon Ingram with the second overall pick. Deng is a fellow Blue Devil, and both players are 6-foot-9.Kupchak entered free agency with a huge amount of salary cap room, but little hope of attracting top free agents determined to win championships now. Instead, the Lakers hoped to place an experienced supporting cast around Russell, Ingram, Randle and Clarkson. Clarkson agreed to a four-year, $50 million deal Friday to stay with the team as a restricted free agent.I think history tells you that a bunch of young guys on a team is probably not a good thing, Kupchak said last month. They look around for leadership and advice from somebody whos been through this a couple of times, and if theres nobody to talk to, then they really dont know how to handle the situation. So I think we will look to add some veteran leadership, and hopefully not only leadership, but guys who can help us win games.A few minutes after free agency opened, the Lakers committed $64 million over the next four years to Mozgov, the 7-1 Russian who mostly sat on Clevelands bench during the Cavaliers championship run this summer. Mozgov doesnt seem an obvious fit for Waltons up-tempo approach, but the Lakers value his size, defense and experience.Although Deng finished last season with his lowest scoring average since his rookie year in Chicago in 2004-05, he is a hard-nosed defensive forward who can play multiple positions and deliver solid offense. He is also known for his diligence in practice, a quality that can only help this team.For the third straight summer, the glitzy Lakers have been on the outside looking in as the biggest names on the free-agent market have taken meetings and agreed to deals.They never got a meeting with Kevin Durant, while Los Angeles native DeMar DeRozan chose to stay in Toronto. Al Horford appears to be headed elsewhere, and the Lakers failed to attract Nicolas Batum or former Lakers forward Kent Bazemore before closing their pursuit of Deng.Thats why the Lakers didnt hesitate to go to a fourth year on the big contract for Deng. He will be entering his 13th season, but has proved durable during his career with the Bulls, Cavaliers and Heat. And he had several other suitors lining up for a crack at him, including Tom Thibodeau, the former Bulls coach now with the Minnesota Timberwolves. Dustin Colquitt Jersey .

Dwayne Hollis returned a fumble 49 yards for a touchdown, and Tracy Belton recovered the kickoff in the end zone for another score.We got behind early, Guy said.
