DENVER - Denver Broncos Pro Bowl linebacker Von Miller, already facing a suspension for violating the NFLs drug-abuse policy, is now confronted by charges that he failed to show up in court on misdemeanour traffic violations. Cheap Padres Jerseys . Miller was arrested in the Denver suburb of Centennial on Sunday and then released, Arapahoe County sheriffs detention chief Louie Perea said Wednesday. The Broncos released a two-sentence statement saying they and league officials are aware of the allegation that Miller didnt appear at a court hearing. The matter is "being handled through the legal system," the statement said. Miller wasnt available for comment Wednesday. Coming off the field after practice, he was whisked away by a member of the teams public relations staff to sign autographs and take photos with wounded members of the armed forces before being escorted by another staff member into team headquarters before reporters could ask him to stop and answer questions. Miller was supposed to appear in court on Dec. 31 on charges of careless driving, driving without a license and no proof of insurance, Arapahoe County court officials said. The original citation was issued Oct. 25. The address where Miller was arrested is the Centennial Gun Club, a shooting range. A woman who answered the phone at the club Wednesday said the owner was in a meeting and unavailable for comment. The 24-year-old linebacker is facing a four-game suspension for violating the NFLs drug-abuse policy. He has appealed and a hearing is scheduled for Thursday. Miller has said he did nothing wrong. Its not known whether Miller will skip practice Thursday to attend the hearing. The Broncos have been treating Miller as though hell be in the starting lineup when they open the season Sept. 5 against the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens, although they have contingency plans in place in case they have to do without their best player. If Miller loses his appeal, hell have to leave the team on Aug. 30 and sit out all of September, missing games against the Ravens, Raiders and Eagles at home and Giants on the road. Miller, who was named Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2011, has 30 sacks over the last two seasons and consistently commands double teams. Broncos executive vice-president John Elway said last week at a keynote breakfast event held by the National Sports Center for the Disabled that "theres not a more talented football player on offence or defence that Ive ever seen than Von Miller," and suggested Miller and Peyton Manning were the two biggest reasons for all the Super Bowl talk in Denver this summer. Miller has had a terrific training camp despite the spectre of a suspension hanging over him, and his teammates say he exudes a confidence in the locker room — which is off-limits to the media until the season begins — that he has a strong case that will result in at least a reduction in his suspension, if not an outright dismissal of the four-game penalty altogether. Champ Bailey said on the eve of training camp that he would be shocked if Miller had to serve a four-game suspension and on Wednesday he said that he was just as confident Miller would win his appeal. "Absolutely. I dont know what else to be. My guys out there every day," Bailey said. "I feel like he does have a good case. So, lets see what happens." San Diego Padres Gear .

PHILADELPHIA -- Clayton Kershaw pitched eight dominant innings and the seemingly unstoppable Los Angeles Dodgers won their 10th straight Saturday night, beating Philadelphia 5-0 to keep the Phillies scoreless in two games under new manager Ryne Sandberg. China Shoes To USA . Juan Uribe hit a three-run homer, Kershaw had an RBI double and the NL West-leading Dodgers improved to 25-3 after the All-Star break. They have won 19 of their last 20 road games and are 42-8 overall since June 22, the best 50-game stretch in the majors since the 1942 St. Louis Cardinals had the same record. The previous team to win 19 of 20 road games was the 1916 New York Giants, according to STATS. The 10-game winning streak is the longest for Los Angeles since an 11-game run in 2006. Meanwhile, the skidding Phillies have yet to cross home plate since manager Charlie Manuel was fired Friday in the middle of a second-half swoon. They were blanked 4-0 by Zack Greinke and the Dodgers in Sandbergs debut and have now lost 21 of 25. Both teams were .500 at the All-Star break. Kershaw (12-7) allowed three hits and lowered his NL-best ERA to 1.80. He struck out eight and walked one. Uribe singled and doubled before hitting a three-run shot to break the game open in the eighth inning. The win was Kershaws first in nine career games against the Phillies. The left-hander also helped himself at the plate with a run-scoring double. His seven RBIs lead the Dodgers pitching staff. Brandon League worked the ninth to secure Los Angeles major league-best 16th shutout. It was the 12th time the Phillies have been blanked this season. Philadelphias lone threat came in the eighth, when Casper Wells doubled and John Mayberry Jr. walked with one out. But Erik Kratz popped out and after a wild pitch, pinch-hitter Carlos Ruiz struck out. Kyle Kendrick (10-10) laboured through six effective innings for the Phillies, yielding two runs and seven hits. He was aided by four double plays, including ones that ended the third, fourth and fifth innings. The Dodgers opened the game with two singles and scored their first run when Mayberry let a grounder get by him at first base for an error. Los Angeles could have had more, but Andre Ethier grounded into bases-loaded double play. Uribe and Kershaw hit consecutive doubles in the fifth to make it 2-0. Domonic Brown got the Phillies first hit in the fifth inning. He was later picked off first base. NOTES: Kershaw also leads the NL in innings (190 1-3) and strikeouts (182). ...

Utah has now won its first three games by a combined 130 points.Its a tough stretch for those guys and they didnt have a whole lot in the way of legs, Utah coach Larry Krystkowiak said. Were just trying to learn how to respect the game regardless of who it is were playing. And the price of pokers going to go up.The energy and effort, that type of thing has been there for us. Now weve got to combine that with quite a bit more complicated scouting report, be able to engage the brain and body and everything at the same time. Thatll be a challenge for us.The Utes opened the game with a 19-3 run and never looked back as their 3-point shooters had their best stretch of the season. Utah shot 64.3 percent from behind the arc in the first half, including three triples apiece from Parker Van Dyke and Jake Connor. Van Dyke matched his career high with 15 points.On the flip side, Coppin State seemed gassed from the beginning as it played its third game in three nights. The Eagles shot just 26.9 percent from the field in the first half, making it impossible to keep up with the dead-eye Utes.Utah transfer JoJo Zamora scored a season-high 22. The Utes connected on a season-high 12 3-pointers.Coppin State has played five games in eight days, all in different cities. The Eagles also wrapped up their third consecutive game in three nights -- Coastal Carolina, BYU and Utah.

This is the hand were dealt.BIG PICTURECoppin State: The Eagles are in the money-making portion of their season, traveling the country for paydays against more talented programs. The conference season is what matters for Coppin State and it doesnt start MEAC play until January.Utah: The Utes continue to use the early part of the season to grow a roster with just two significant contributors from last season. The first half was their best 20 minutes of the season, but the level of competition didnt allow for a good feel of Utahs progress.NEW STARTERUtah forward Tyler Rawson started the first game of his Utes career after transferring from Salt Lake Community College. Rawson has been the second-leading scorer through the first two games and had six points, a game-high 12 rebounds and six assists Friday. Jayce Johnson moved to the bench and Krystkowiak said it wasnt a punishment, but Johnson has had some mental breakdowns in games.Im going to be mixing some stuff up, probably, throughout the course of the year, Krystkowiak said. Tylers had some good practice, thats been another factor. Starting doesnt mean much to me.UP NEXTCoppin State: The Eagles travel to play Ball State on Monday as part of 11 of 12 games on the road to start the season.Utah: The Utes continue their early, soft nonconference schedule when they host UC Riverside on Friday ' ' '

Smeb wants to be the best in the world.He started off his campaign to challenge SK Telecom T1s Lee Faker Sang-hyeok as the best player in the world with a victory over wildcard Albus Nox Luna. The game wasnt as easy as it might have appeared on paper with the underdogs from Albus getting out to a lead early. But eventually, after stabilizing, the South Korean champion was able to take a decisive win.One player jumped out to him while training for the World Championships: the often overlooked top laner of Team SoloMid.Hauntzer, said Smeb when asked if a player or team surprised him while teams bootcamped for the tournament in South Korea. He showed up really well and was a tough opponent.When asked if he considered him a rival, Smeb replied with a smile, Yes.Smeb explained the Tigers hadnt played a professional game in a while so they came out rusty versus a spirited ANX. It took some time, but by the end, the Tigers resembled the team many believe will hoist the Summoners Cup in a months time.TSM is far above [the other western teams], said Smeb.The ROX top laaner was impressed by the North American champions play and thinks they have the best chance to go far in the tournament out of all the LCS clubs.

I cant say Im his rival; [however] after this tournament with my play, I hope I can tell him I am. ' ' ' 
NEW YORK -- Nick Kyrgios said he would quit tennis if he won the US Open, but here he had to quit his third-round match with injury. Stitched Padres Jerseys .This was meant to be Kyrgios big moment -- under the Saturday night lights and the new roof at ?Arthur Ashe Stadium. The Australian certainly started in spectacular fashion to take the first set against Illya Marchenko.In particular, one swashbuckling point at 2-2 in the second set had the crowd on its feet, as he dived to send a backspinning volley over the net. Kyrgios beat his chest as he drank in the applause; this looked like a man who has the natural talent to become one of the best players in the world, if not the best.But then the right hip flexor injury that he struggled with in his first two matches, which forced him to withdraw in Washington, resurfaced to ruin his plans of going into the second week here.I feel like Ive been hit by a bus, Kyrgios said to the chair umpire, before eventually retiring down 4-6, 6-4, 6-1.He later dejectedly trudged into his interview session at the Bud Collins Media Center, and looked and sounded just as downbeat as he had after being blown away by Andy Murray at Wimbledon. Here it was for different reasons, because he was confident of going even further despite Stan Wawrinka lying in wait the next round.Im pretty disappointed, he said. You know, a great opportunity. Hes [Marchenko] a solid player. Im sure hes going to do well next round. But obviously, yeah, its not great, is it?Its tough. I dont like to retire. Its probably like the second or third time Ive done it. Its never easy, of course. Ive got a lot of belief in my game to still win matches when Im not feeling great.Its not great. Yeah, I mean, to be fair, my hip was bothering me my first two matches and I got through. I guess it was just a matter of time.After losing the second set, the trainer was called and the injury assessed. I dont want to play anymore, Kyrgios said.The trainer convinced him to go off court for treatment, but when Kyrgios returned, he looked a shell of the player he was in the first two rounds at Flushing Meadows and in the first set of this match.Seemingly unable to chase anything down, he finally conceded defeat after Marchenko wrapped up the third set.ESPN analyst John McEnroe, the seven-time Grand Slam champion, seemed to suggest the 21-year-old could have tried to continue.If you dont want to be out there, dont do it anymore, he said on commentary.Patrick McEnroe, also on commentary for ESPN, questioned whether Kyrgios injury was down to his lack of conditioning and preparation. Kyrgios, who has no coach, was also of that opinion.Its the whole year leading up to it with the whole schedule, he said. I got to take more time and be more diligent with gym and everything so this doesnt happen to me.My physio has been helping me all week. He did everything he could. Ive been trying to fix it all week.?Its almost just hard mentally to play with something like that. Padres Jerseys China .

SEATTLE -- If Lamar Neagle never quite felt at home last year in Montreal, thats no longer a problem now that hes back in Seattle. Fake MLB Jerseys . Neagle scored in the 57th minute and the Sounders rallied for a 2-1 victory over Chivas USA on Sunday night. Obafemi Martins started the winning play when he sprinted down the right side to catch up with the ball just inside the penalty area. He sent it across to Mauro Rosales on the penalty spot, and Rosales, as he was falling down, tapped it to his left to Neagle. From 13 yards in front, Neagle, who grew up in Federal Way, about 30 minutes south of Seattle, drilled it into the back left corner past goalkeeper Dan Kennedy for his fifth goal of the season. "It was a good build-up by everybody -- Oba taking it down the line, getting a cross to Mauro, and Mauro barely getting a touch on it perfect to me," Neagle said. "I just put it back where it came from." Neagle played for Seattle in 2009 and 2011 before being sent to the Montreal Impact prior to last season in the trade that brought U.S. national teamer Eddie Johnson to the Sounders. Seattle reacquired Neagle this past winter. "I think his year in Montreal ended up being a little bit of a lost year," Sounders coach Sigi Schmid said. "When he first came back here, he seemed to be a little off his touch. But I think slowly and gradually, his confidence has grown. He has given us what we expected -- thats the reason we made the trade (in January) to bring him back." Brad Evans also scored for the Sounders (8-7-4), who are unbeaten in their last eight games at home (4-0-4) to tie a franchise record. Seattles only home loss was 1-0 to Montreal in the season opener. Erick Torres tallied late in the 16th minute for Chivas (4-12-5), which was playing for the first time since it snapped a 14-game winless streak on July 17. It was the first time since Sept. 8, 2012, -- also a 2-1 victory against Chivas -- that the Sounders came back to win after allowing the first goal of the game. They had been 0-9-1 when the opponent scored first. "It was three points. Whether the scoreline was 2-1 or 3-1 or 1-0 doesnt matter as long as it was three points," Schmid said after the Sounders halted a three-game winless streak. "I was pleased that we played better soccer today. That was the emphasis before the game -- lets not worry about the W. The W will take care of itself. Lets be immersed in the game, lets be focused, lets have our concentration level. I thought we had that for the majority of the game." Chivas took a 1-0 lead when Carlos Alvarez got past two Seattle defenders and tapped the ball to his left. Torres ran onto it, and from 14 yards out fired it across the penalty area and past Sounders goalkeeper Andrew Weber into the back right corner. That was the second goal in two games for Torres, who scored in his MLS debut on July 17 to beat Toronto 1-0. "There were two parts to the game," Chivas USA coach Jose Luis Real said. "In the first half, Chivas couldnt have gotten a better result, in my opinion. In the second half, however, we played differently. During the second half, we lost a lot of the balls and the possession of the ball. That was the main defect that we had." Rosales and Martins factored into Evans tying goal. Controlling the ball along the right sideline, Rosales crossed it to Martins. He sent a through ball toward the top of the box and Evans ran onto it, sending it to the back left corner for his second of the year. Kennedy played his 100th MLS game, all with Chivas USA.

AFC EASTMiami Dolphins (W 27-23 v New York Jets)Only 130 yards on offence for Jay Ajayi against the Jets (plus another touchdown), but the Dolphins managed to even up their record at 4-4 despite quarterback Ryan Tannehill struggling to deal with the Jets front seven. Kenyan Drake proved the hero with a game-winning 96-yard kick-off return. Grade B+ Highlights of the Miami Dolphins win over the New York Jets in Week 9 of the NFL. New York Jets (L 23-27 at Miami)A strange performance from the Jets who only gave Matt Forte the ball 12 times on the ground - he nearly broke 100 yards with those carries but seemed to be frozen out of their offence for long spells in a game they really should have won. With Ryan Fitzpatrick struggling as well that seemed an inexplicable decision, and the Jets now appear to be playing for a high draft pick (and possibly a new QB with it). Grade CBuffalo Bills (L 25-31 at Seattle)A cracking Monday night game ended in agonising defeat for the Bills and fury from coach Rex Ryan over the officiating. Whether it made a difference can be talked over for days but nothing will change the score - a tough luck loss after impressive displays from quarterback Tyrod Taylor and receiver Robert Woods, who caught 10 passes for 162 yards. Grade BNew England Patriots - byeAFC NORTHBaltimore Ravens (W 21-14 v Pittsburgh)An impressive win for the Ravens in a dour defence-led game where neither team broke 300 yards. They stifled Ben Roethlisberger for three quarters but were reliant on a 95-yard Mike Wallace score, where Pittsburghs defence fell apart, and a blocked punt for the majority of their points.

Pittsburgh Steelers (L 14-21 at Baltimore)Roethlisberger came through his return safely, but he was inaccurate for long spells before almost guiding the Steelers to a final quarter comeback.

Andrew Luck failed to impress, not for the first time this season, but Frank Gore ploughed over for two scores and Jordan Todmans 99-yard kick-off return on the first play proved key.

Video from NFL.com Jacksonville Jaguars (L 14-19 at Kansas City)You have to feel sorry for the Jaguars, who coughed the ball up on the goalline as they started to muster up a fightback in Arrowhead Stadium. But, once again, Blake Bortles woke up too late and that means six defeats on a busted season for the Jags, who played much better on defence but still end up losing to a team that managed only one touchdown. Grade CTennessee Titans (L 35-43 at San Diego)Disappointment for the Titans, and in particular Marcus Mariota, in Southern California. Mariota coughed up a costly fumble which was returned for a touchdown and threw two interceptions, and its that inconsistency which stops him from elevating this team at the moment, but they remain well in the playoff hunt in one of the leagues weaker divisions.

Derek Carr was kept quiet but the Raiders didnt need him with Murray able to convert drives on three occasions as he ran for 114 yards against a feared Broncos defence. Grade A+ Highlights of the Oakland Raiders win over the Denver Broncos in Week 9 of the NFL. Video from NFL.com San Diego Chargers (W 43-35 v Tennessee)Not a whole lot of defence was played in this thrilling game but the Chargers managed one big play with Dwight Lowerys fumble recovery for a touchdown. The rest of their win was down to Philip Rivers, who threw two first-half touchdown passes and Melvin Gordon who dominated the second half and had 261 yards of total offence on his own to beat the Titans. Grade AKansas City Chiefs (W 19-14 v Jacksonville)Alex Smith and Spencer Ware missed the game through injury and the Chiefs suffered badly on offence in a game they appeared somewhat lucky to win. The Jaguars outgained them 449 yards to 231 and were made to pay for some costly fumbles, including one that cost them a touchdown. An escape for the under-manned Chiefs.

Denver Broncos (L 20-30 at Oakland)The most disappointing display of the season for Denver and it came in a massive divisional game. They had no running game at all, going for only 33 yards, and although Trevor Siemian played better, he was constantly pressured by Khalil Mack and the Raiders defence. Denvers own D played okay but nothing like their normally elite standard. Grade C-NFC EASTDallas Cowboys (W 35-10 at Cleveland)The Cowboys continue to go from strength to strength under the leadership of rookies Dak Prescott (21-27 for 247 yards and three TDs) and Ezekiel Elliott (92 yards, 2 TDs). Yes, it was only the winless Browns, but a net 200-yard advantage on the road still has to be applauded. This really is a team going place, perhaps even to the Super Bowl.

New York Giants (W 28-23 v Philadelphia)Very nervous in the end for the Giants, who played very well on defence and were thankful to Eli Manning for a four-touchdown performance to stifle the Eagles, who easily outgained them on offence but constantly came up short on the games biggest plays. They could really do with someone coming forward to lead their running corps. Grade A- Highlights of the New York Giants win over the PhiladelphiaEagles in Week 9 of the NFL. Philadelphia Eagles (L 23-28 at New York Giants)Nearly 450 yards of net offence ending in defeat is going to hurt for the Eagles, who have now lost three of their last four games. Carson Wentz threw two early picks before settling down but they wasted chances and now have to find some consistency to climb out of the divisional basement. Grade CWashington Redskins - byeNFC NORTHDetroit Lions (W 22-16 (OT) at Minnesota)A massive win for the Lions, who struggled to break down Minnesotas tough defence for long spells but came back to force overtime thanks to a superb 58-yard field goal from Matt Prater. Golden Tates sheer strength after the catch gave them the win, but there was some luck involved with Blair Walsh missing a vital point after during regulation that might have put the game beyond them. Grade B+ Highlights of the Detroit Lions win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 9 of the NFL. Minnesota Vikings (L 16-22 (OT) v Detroit)The Vikings will wonder how they lost this game, playing well on defence and with Sam Bradford only missing on nine of his 40 pass attempts. The problem was that most of them were short passes, with Stefon Diggs having 13 catches for only 80 yards, and they failed to convert a number of chances, meaning Blair Walshs missed extra point would prove vital. Grade C Highlights of the Atlanta Falcons win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Video from NFL.com Green Bay Packers (L 26-31 v Indianapolis)This division looks wide open all of a sudden with the Packers giving up a home game most expected them to win handsomely. Aaron Rodgers struggled with his rhythm before two fourth quarter TD passes but he could not get back on the field in the last three minutes to try and engineer what would have been an incredible, and possibly undeserved, comeback for victory. Grade D+Chicago Bears - byeNFC SOUTHAtlanta Falcons (W 43-28 at Tampa Bay)Plenty to like from the Falcons on offence with Matt Ryan continuing his rise into the NFLs quarterback elite, if hes not already there. Four more touchdowns in a polished display with four different receivers on the end of them. Defence was questionable at times against the pass and struggled to contain Mike Evans, but this was a good win. Grade A- Highlights of the New Orleans Saints win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 9 of the NFL. New Orleans Saints (W 41-23 at San Francisco)Simply sensational offence from the Saints, who burned the awful 49ers defence for almost 600 yards. Mark Ingram returned from the dog house for 158 yards on the ground and two touchdowns, with rookie receiver Michael Thomas adding two more. The black mark? Giving up almost 400 yards to 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Grade A- Watch this brilliant catch from New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas against San Francisco 49ers. Carolina Panthers (W 13-10 at Los Angeles)The Panthers are still struggling badly on offence, gaining less than 250 yards net against a tough Rams D. But they made the most of Greg Olsens early touchdown catch thanks to their own defensive effort, with a series of big plays made at just the right time to stop Rams drives. Grade B Highlights of the Carolina Panthers win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 9 of the NFL. Video from NFL.com Tampa Bay Buccaneers (L 28-43 v Atlanta)The Bucs passing game was in sync, even when Mike Glennon came in for a banged-up Jameis Winston, but they offered nothing on the ground in the absence of Jacquizz Rodgers and Doug Martin and their defence was simply dreadful. Grade D-NFC WESTSeattle Seahawks (w 31-25 v Buffalo)Plenty of luck for the Seahawks, helped by some questionable refereeing, but a win is a win. No running game, and their defence struggled to contain Buffalo but a resurgent Jimmy Graham, who had 103 yards and two touchdowns, made the difference in the end. They desperately need to re-find their running game. Grade BLos Angeles Rams (L 10-13 v Carolina)Frustration for the Rams, who played so well on defence but could not convert anything on offence until a late Kenny Britt touchdown gave them hope of a comeback, killed off by a ridiculously-bad kickoff attempt. Case Keenum played better than his Twickenham horror show but so often drives stalled and he heard shouts of We want Goff from the sidelines. Only a matter of time, surely. Grade C-San Francisco 49ers (L 23-41 v New Orleans)Swiss cheese would be suing if you likened it to the 49ers defence, which clearly has a good deal more holes. They couldnt stop Drew Brees, Mark Ingram or even Tim Hightower and have so many questions to answer - at least it looks like Colin Kaepernicks short-term future might not be one of them after his best display in two years.

BEREA, Ohio -- The Cleveland Browns murky quarterback situation may be clearing. Jalen McDaniels Hornets Jersey .Josh McCown is on track to return and start Sundays game against the Jets. Coach Hue Jackson said that McCown has been medically cleared from his broken left collarbone to play.The veteran was a full participant in practice, but Jackson said he wont name McCown the starter until he goes through the full week of practice.Definitely been medically cleared, Jackson said. Well see how it goes the rest of the week and go from there.If McCown starts, it increases the Browns chances to win their first game. Cody Kessler is in the NFL concussion protocol and the only other two quarterbacks are recently activated or signed rookies Kevin Hogan and Joe Callahan.McCowns full practice was his first since he broke his collarbone in a loss to Baltimore on Sept. 18. He has been doing limited work in practice the previous two weeks, but was cleared to play this week.Obviously the doctors and everybody wouldnt allow me to be out there if we werent going in the right direction, McCown said.Jackson has been through several midweek injuries this season, so he said he wanted to wait to see how he turns out.Things change, as you guys know, during the week, Jackson said.McCown faced the Jets a year ago in the season opener, and guided the Browns on a 90-yard drive. But on third down he tried to run for a touchdown and was helicoptered in the air. The result: A concussion and a fumble recovered by the Jets in the end zone.In his only start this season, McCown scored three first-half touchdowns and had the Browns ahead 20-0. He played with the injury and the Ravens came back to win 25-20.What he did way back then was a long time ago, Jackson said. Thats why I keep saying we got to work in practice and see where we are. Hes a veteran player who knows how to play, knows our system. Hopefully if hes out there it means hes the best guy standing right now.Jets receiver Brandon Marshall was a teammate of McCowns in 2013 when McCown had one of his better seasons as Jay Cutlers backup in Chicago.Josh is back? Marshall said on a conference call. Thats my guy, man. [Hes] just an awesome man. Awesome quarterback. Hes the example what you want your kid to be.In other injury news, receiver Terrelle Pryor?[hamstring] and cornerback Joe Haden?[groin] again were limited. Devonte Graham Jersey . -- The Bishops Gaiters are showing they belong among the countrys top varsity football teams. Nicolas Batum Jersey .

"Paul sent me a text this morning, just told me he loved me and wanted to go out and fight as hard as I would any other day," Simpson said Sunday after doing just that. https://www.hornetslockerroom.com/Dell-Curry-City-Edition-Jersey/ . -- Al Jefferson found a groove just in time for the Charlotte Bobcats. The Adelaide 36ers have extended their unbeaten run in the NBL to five games after blowing out the Taipans in Cairns with a 96-83 win.The Snakes looked to be in for a rough Monday night when the 36ers shot out to a double-digit lead courtesy of Nathan Sobey, who looked determined to give his former club a wake-up call.The Warrnambool-born guard was an energiser bunny on his old floor and slammed home two dunks before a corked wrist in the second quarter seemed to slow his output before he rebounded to finish on 19 points.Hurt by a Sydney Kings comeback earlier in the round, the Taipans sparked one of their own to end the first quarter just three points behind, with their equal-opportunity offence coming from Mitch McCarron, Nate Jawai and Mark Worthington.Cairns then continued in the second quarter to lead by nine points when centre Jawai began to find his rhythm after missing a two-handed jam in the first quarter.Adelaide big man Daniel Johnson responded, though, and his input was critical to the 36ers regaining the lead early in the third term - one they wouldnt relinquish.The Taipans shooting percentage abandoned them when they needed it the most in the dying stages, finishing thee game at 41 per cent from the field compare with Adelaides 52 per cent. Willy Hernangomez Hornets Jersey. The battle between the bigs was particularly fascinating - 36ers rock Daniel Johnson earned bragging rights over Jawai with 27 points and nine rebounds to the Cairns centres 17 points and seven rebounds.Adelaide point man Jerome Randle was successful in shutting down Cairns counterpart Travis Trice, who left the floor with five points to his name.Adelaide return home to take on the Sydney Kings on Friday night in a top-of-the-table clash, while the Taipans will remain at the Snakepit to battle the Illawarra Hawks on Saturday.36ers coach Joey Wright said Randle and Sobeys lock-down defence of Trice and Cameron Gliddon was crucial.Trice and Gliddon were non-factors tonight, and that doesnt happen often. It was a huge area we targeted coming into this game, Wright said.The Taipans have lost two in a row at home, and coach Aaron Fearne was blunt.If I was a fan I would be pissed off and disappointed. It is embarrassing for me that we would come here and play like that, he said. ' ' ' 
CHENEY, Wash. Los Angeles Lakers Store . -- Beau Baldwin could not remember ever being a part of a playoff shutout.In college football these days that doesnt happen, Baldwin, the Eastern Washington coach, said.His Eagles came close last week, when they held Central Arkansas scoreless after the first quarter. But Saturday, Gage Gubrud finished 21 for 32 for 287 yards and three touchdowns, all three in the first half, to lead the second-seeded Eagles past Richmond 38-0 in the FCS quarterfinals on Saturday.EWU forced five turnovers and scored on all five trips to the red zone.Samson Ebukam finished with eight tackles (four for loss), an interception and a forced fumble and Cooper Kupp had six receptions for 128 yards and a touchdown for the Eagles. Kupp became college footballs all-time leading receiver with 6,284 yards, passing Chris George of NAIA Glenville State (1991-1994).Richmond fumbled four times in the first half and Eastern Washington went up 21-0 at halftime.I dont think Ive been a part of a playoff shutout in my life, let alone if you really think about it thats seven quarters of scoreless football by our defense, Baldwin said.The Eagles (12-1) scored first midway through the first quarter when Gubrud found Nsimba Webster for a 7-yard touchdown pass. The touchdown came eight plays after EWU safety Mitch Fettig forced a fumble at the Spiders 45-yard line.Gubrud hit Kupp for 68 yards after eluding a safety after a Spiders punt pinned Eastern on its 8. Kupp left the game momentarily after being hit, then returned to catch a 20-yard touchdown pass to put the Eagles up 14-0 with 7:45 left in the second quarter.One play after Jonah Jordan recovered an unforced Richmond fumble at opposing 23 Gubrud hit Shaq Hill for a touchdown with 5:35 to go in the half.Four of five Richmond first half drives ended in a fumble.I felt we had a good plan for the game on both sides of the ball. Early on we really couldnt get a break, we turned the ball over four times in the first half, Richmond coach Danny Rocco said. When it was all said and done I think it was a little too much to ever really overcome.The Eagles scored twice on the ground in the second half, one from Jabari Wilson and the other from Antoine Custer Jr.Offensively on a day thats tough, its cold, were just executing and taking care of the football, grinding out drives, hitting plays when we need to, Baldwin said. Sometimes when youre up 21-0 it can be really easy to take, not purposefully, a little gasp and wait for the game to finish and our offense went right down and scored on that first drive of the second half.Richmond quarterback Kevin Johnson went 20 for 31 for 157 yards and an interception. He was sacked six times in his third start. Johnson burned a redshirt on the last game of the regular season after the Spiders starter Kyle Lauretta suffered a season-ending knee injury,BIG PICTURERichmond: The Spiders (10-4) are one of three FCS schools to play in the quarterfinals in each of the last two season.

Dame Laura Davies believes Lydia Ko will struggle to match the achievements of the legendary Annika Sorenstam despite the incredible start to her career. Replica Jerseys . Ko has already won 11 LPGA Tour titles at the age of 18 despite the presence of consistently strong fields, including a vast South Korean contingent led by current world No 2 and seven-time major champion Inbee Park.The teenage superstar is favourite to land her second straight major at this weeks ANA Inspiration in California, where she opened with a solid two-under 70 to lie just three off the early pace. Lydia Ko has already won 11 LPGA Tour titles before her 19th birthday This is one of the biggest events of the year for the ladies, and its basically our version of The Masters, Davies told Sky Sports. Its at the same course every year, and its a great place. As soon as you get through the gates, you feel the atmosphere, see the set up and you know its a major.Its such a top course. You get very long rough which you dont have every week, and its a course where the better players will win. You cannot get away with playing average golf, youve got to be on top of your game, and thats why Id pick Lydia Ko to win. Kos winning rate is outstanding considering the quality of the fields week in, week out Hopefully Charley Hull will have a good run, and Inbee Park finished second last week so I wouldnt be surprised to see her and Lydia fighting out another tournament.Lydia is just incredible. To put her achievements into perspective, I won 20 LPGA Tour events over 28 years, and shes already won 11 in three years and shes still only 18. A winning rate of four per year is extraordinary, and its so tough to be that consistent because every week sees a strong field. Annika Sorenstam won a remarkable 93 professional titles, including 10 majors The prospect of her keeping that up should be a little unrealistic, and I thought it would be impossible to match what Annika Sorenstam achieved in her career. But the way Lydia has started out, shes on pace to keep up with Annika. Time will tell if she can keep this going, and if she can, it will be astounding.She just doesnt hit any bad shots, and if she does miss the odd green, she gets up and down most of the time because her short game is so good. She literally has no weaknesses. Charley Hull is two years older than Ko and still looking for her breakthrough win in the United States, and Davies feels the Solheim Cup star will be a force to be reckoned with in the not-to-distant future.Charleys very young, exciting to watch and still so enthusiastic about everything, she added. Maybe she should be less aggressive and not keep going for the big shot all the time, but I cant really say anything because I used to play right on the limit! Charley Hull is exciting to watch, but Davies feels she needs to curb her aggression But thats the way Charley plays and its why I love watching her. Maybe she should back off a little bit, and she needs to make the odd extra putt that isnt dropping at the moment, and that is the difference between a solid top-10 finish and a win.When she matures a little more, I reckon in a couple of years shell be up there contending every single week. Charley is such a good ball-striker, and the fact that she hasnt been as successful as Lydia Ko is a surprise to me.Meanwhile, Davies is keen to host her own tournament on the Ladies European Tour schedule for the benefit of her new Laura Davies Foundation, while also helping to give British players a rare opportunity to play on home soil. Dame Laura Davies hopes to have her own tournament on the Ladies European Tour She said: My brother runs my foundation and he came to me with his business partner a while ago with the idea of having our own tournament. I thought it was a great idea, and we announced the Foundation shortly after that.So it seems like a natural fit, and if we can get this on the LET schedule, the Foundation will benefit financially and we can raise money for the causes we follow - Great Ormond Street Hospital and others like that. Davies feels there are not nearly enough events on British soil Its also a great chance for British players to play an event in this country. One of the main reasons theres a lack of British stars is that weve got the Womens British Open - and half of them dont get in it - and the Ladies European Masters. Only two tournaments on home soil is not enough.Im not saying its going to happen. Im not directly involved in it, but I know my brother is struggling to find a sponsor right now.Davies will also be glued to Skys televison coverage of The Masters next week, and feels Adam Scott will be the man to beat at Augusta National. Dame Laura is backing Adam Scott to win the Masters I think it will be Adams year again. I know Jason Day has just won back-to-back, but Adam did that earlier and hes won the Masters before and that might be the deciding factor. Jordan Spieth isnt playing brilliantly at the moment, so its tough to see him defending.I think Justin Rose will have a good run at it, but Scott would be my pick.For more details about the Laura Davies Foundation, visit her official website here.

At the age of 60, Adams has seen it, done it, and worn the t-shirt, with that identifiable nickname of Wolfie emblazoned on the back. The three-time Lakeside champion caused a stir in the sport when he finally agreed to take part in last years Grand Slam of Darts, a tournament which pits BDO players against their rivals from the PDC. Not even an ongoing battle with cancer could prevent the much-loved Adams from returning this year, such was his enjoyment of that maiden appearance. Martin Adams registered three three-figure checkouts in a group stage victory over Ian White He lets out that familiar throaty chuckle when asked about the prospect of facing the big names from the PDC again at Wolverhampton.Were all darts players, we can all do it on our day, Adams told Sky Sports.Its not like anyone is playing with four darts and youve got one poor bloke only playing with three or two.

Its all about having an enjoyable game, playing the best you can and entertaining the crowd that youve got with you. Martin Adams Darts is very much on the day, he said. We all have our bad days. Youve seen that with the Grand Prix. Someone you might expect to win, this time round hes lost. A bad day at the office, so you shrug your shoulders, put it behind you, and move on.Its all about having an enjoyable game, playing the best you can and entertaining the crowd that youve got with you. Adams admits the atmosphere has changed at live matches Wolf howls filled the air as Adams, ever the entertainer, happily interacted with the vociferous crowd at Wolverhamptons Civic Hall.But the veteran freely admits that sold-out arenas with a raucous atmosphere are far removed from the venues where he learned his trade.There is a lot more crowd noise than there ever used to be, said Adams. I remember the days of flat caps and playing with your jackets on, and stuff like that. The 60-year-old enjoyed his first appearance at the tournament in 2015 It was all deadly quiet in the pub when you were playing darts. Fake NHL Jerseys. .

But they have bought their tickets havent they? Mardles group of death Wayne Mardle selects most dangerous group in Grand Slam of Darts One of the time honoured traditions that Adams missed 12 months ago, was a swift pint in the practice room.The absence of a bar was greeted with disbelief and Adams joked about the lack of banter as he rubbed shoulders with players from the PDC.I just couldnt believe what I was seeing, laughed Adams. There was no bar in the players room, thats got to be sorted out. People have a little drink, have a chat, and there is always a few wind-ups, a bit of banter going on and so forth. Martin Adams A lot of players like a good drink when theyre playing and before they are playing, maybe a couple of bevvies afterwards. If youre at one of the ranking events - I dont know what their PDC ones are like because Ive never been to one - but at our ranking events, there is always a bar. People have a little drink, have a chat, and there is always a few wind-ups, a bit of banter going on and so forth. I missed that side of it. Grand Slam order of play The full order of play for the Grand Slam of Darts. A shock to the system is how Adams described his cancer diagnosis earlier this year, but his long-standing love for the game remains and he will be sporting that trademark smile, regardless of the result.If I take part in a tournament, I take it as it comes, said Adams. If it goes well, it goes well, if it dont, it dont.Exhibitions are obviously a lot easier to do. You havent got to worry about form, you just throw the darts and have a bit of a fun along the way, even if you lose a few more than maybe you would do. Youve just got to keep laughing.Watch Martin Adams against Michael van Gerwen in the evening session on day one of the Grand Slam of Darts, starting at 7.30pm on Sky Sports 5.
