Phoenix, AZ (SportsNetwork. Corey Crawford Team Canada Jersey .com) - Isaiah Thomas made his Phoenix Suns debut a memorable one, shooting 9-of-11 for 23 points off the bench in a 119-99 rout of the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday. Thomas, the former King who signed a four-year deal with Phoenix this offseason, accepted a lesser role in hopes of being the missing piece for the playoff-hopeful Suns. I got going a little bit, and we had fun. A good start, Thomas said. Phoenix, which was projected to finish near the bottom of the standings a season ago, surprised by finishing a game shy of the eighth seed in a loaded Western Conference. All five starters reached double figures for the Suns, with Marcus Morris hitting five threes en route to 21 points. Goran Dragic scored 18 points and Eric Bledsoe went for 16 points and nine assists before getting ejected late in the third quarter. For the second straight night, Kobe Bryant was the lone bright spot for the Lakers. Bryant scored 31 points on 25 shots while the rest of LAs starters had 25 points combined on the same number of looks. I told you guys from the beginning I am back to myself, Bryant said. Los Angles has been outscored 84-18 from the 3-point line through two games. Less than seven minutes in, Markieff Morris followed Bledsoes 3-pointer with a reverse layup plus a free throw as Phoenix opened up a 20-9 lead. Thomas scored five straight late in the period and after one, it was 33-19. Behind back-to-back Wayne Ellington jumpers, LA pulled back to within six 1 1/2 minutes into the second. Bryant then converted a three-point play to make it 41-37, but thats as close as the Lakers would get. Bledsoe went on a personal 7-0 run, and Phoenix led 59-50 at the break. The Lakers nearly stole moomentum early in the third, as Wesley Johnson drew a foul and hit three free throws 11 seconds in. But Phoenix got hot from the floor and at the 8:00 point of the third, the hosts had opened up an 18-point edge. Both Morris brothers hit triples during the 14-2 flurry, and LA never challenged the rest of the way. Things got chippy late in the third when Bryant and Bledsoe got tangled up under the basket. Bledsoe was handed his second technical foul for kicking the scorers table in frustration that a foul wasnt called on the previous play. Game Notes Phoenix shot 16-of-32 from behind the arc ... Ed Davis scored 14 points off the bench for the Lakers, while Ellington totaled 13 ... The Lakers started 0-2 for the third time in four years. Alex Pietrangelo Team Canada Jersey . Cleveland has won the first two of this set and has won six straight games since losing back-to-back tilts to open the year. Seattle, on the other hand, has now lost six in a row following consecutive wins to kick off its campaign. Rick Nash World Cup Jersey . "It was a little weird looking over and seeing all the green uniforms," he said of his first game against the Boston Celtics.NEW YORK -- This one was so easy for the New York Knicks, Carmelo Anthony only needed to play 28 minutes. That left plenty of energy for pitching books and swatting away free agency questions. Anthony had 24 points and nine rebounds, and the Knicks avenged an embarrassing home loss with a rout of their own, beating the Boston Celtics 114-88 on Wednesday night for their third straight victory. Jeremy Tyler added a career-high 17 points and fellow reserve J.R. Smith also scored 17 for the Knicks, who lost by 41 the last time the Celtics came to Madison Square Garden but led this one by 35. "Todays game in particular, it was kind of personal, you know what Im saying, the way they beat us the last time we played them," forward Kenyon Martin said. "So we wanted a little get-back." Anthony, who leads the NBA in minutes per game with 39.2, was quick on his feet after the game, easily handling a question about his relationship with Chicago coach Tom Thibodeau (he said he doesnt have one) and one about comments made by his wife, actress La La Anthony, who has a new book out called "The Love Playbook" and said in a TV interview that she "definitely" thinks he will re-sign with the Knicks. "Thats my wife. I support her, I support what she said," Anthony said. "I dont think she said anything wrong. Its a good thing for her to say that. Go get the book though, your wives and girlfriends will enjoy the book." New York evened its record at 3-3 on its eight-game homestand, with games remaining against Cleveland on Thursday and Miami on Saturday. New York is headed in the right direction again since ending a five-game losing streak Friday behind Anthonys 62 points, and is only a half-game out of the eighth and final Eastern Conference playoff spot despite its 18-27 record. "Youre going to have ups and downs throughout the season," centre Tyson Chandler said. "The thing is when you have those lulls youve got to be able to bounce back, and weve done that." Jeff Green scored 14 points on 4-of-13 shooting for the Celtics, who have lost three straight and six of seven. Rajon Rondo had seven points and five assists, shooting 3 of 13 in his sixth game of the season after retturning from a torn ACL. Jake Muzzin Canada Jersey. "It was a good old-fashioned butt kicking," Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. After finishing up their Super Bowl media day duties, the Seattle Seahawks Russell Wilson and Golden Tate, and Wes Welker, Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker of Denver were part of the sellout crowd of 19,812. Hopefully their game Sunday will be better than this clunker. Boston jumped to a 12-0 lead in its 114-73 victory here on Dec. 8, when it handed New York its worst home loss in 11 years. But it never really got much better this season for the Celtics, who led the Atlantic Division at 10-12 after that victory but are 5-20 since. "We didnt take anything away tonight," Rondo said. "We pretty much gave them everything they wanted. They took away stuff from us but we didnt take anything away from those guys." The Knicks jumped to a 21-5 lead helped by the Celtics lack of execution (they missed 11 of their first 13 shots) and effort (6-foot-1 Raymond Felton grabbed an offensive rebound under the basket without even having to jump on one possession). New York led 31-15 after one and opened a 45-20 bulge when Chandler threw down an alley-oop pass from Smith midway through the second. The Celtics scored 11 straight to cut it to 14, but the Knicks outscored them 18-6 the remainder of the half to take a 63-37 lead. The Knicks overcame the loss of Iman Shumpert to a sprained right shoulder just over 4 minutes into the game. Martin left with a sprained left ankle in his first game after missing five games with the same injury, though the team said he was available to return. New York also announced at halftime that reserve guard Beno Udrih was unavailable because of illness, but everyone else who was active scored. That included Metta World Peace, who played for the first time in a month after having a procedure on his left knee and made a 3-pointer. Notes: Jerryd Bayless was back for Boston after missing four games with a sprained left big toe. ... Chris Johnson scored 12 points for the Celtics on the day he was signed to a second 10-day contract. ... There was a moment of silence before the game for Hall of Famer Tom Gola, an All-Star with the Knicks in the 1960s who died Sunday.Discount NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic ' ' '
