PITTSBURGH, Pa. Barry Sanders Jersey . - LeVeon Bell tugged at the top of his jersey while the Pittsburgh Steelers training staff tended to his throbbing right knee.The Pittsburgh Steelers are heading back to the playoffs as division champions after a 27-17 win over Cincinnati on Sunday night. They just might have to begin their journey for a seventh Super Bowl without their talented and versatile catalyst.The second-year running back was injured in the third quarter after a legal but low shot to the legs from Cincinnatis Reggie Nelson. The early diagnosis is a hyperextended knee and no major structural damage. Its uncertain whether Bell will be available on Saturday when the Steelers (11-5) host Baltimore (10-6) in the wild-card round.I can say right now from the things Ive heard that he should be OK, but I cant really say, Pittsburgh backup running back Josh Harris said.Neither can anyone else, leaving the surging Steelers with an unwanted question mark as they prepare for a return to the playoffs after a two-year absence.I know if there is a chance that he can be out there, hes going to be because thats how he is, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said.Either way Pittsburgh will press on. The Steelers have won four straight and are 8-2 since falling to Cleveland on Oct. 12. Their sixth AFC North title this millennium and first since 2010 marked the end of a rebuilding process that began in earnest two years ago. Pittsburgh endued 8-8 seasons in 2012 and 2013 but have roared back to prominence behind one of the NFLs most potent offences.The Steelers relied on it to bail them out late. Antwon Blake forced a fumble by Cincinnatis A.J. Green to end a promising Bengals drive late in the fourth quarter and Roethlisberger responded by turning a third-and-8 into a 63-yard touchdown pass to Antonio Brown. The Pro Bowl wide receivers 129th and final catch of the season sealed Pittsburghs rise from mediocrity.Who else was going to make (the play)? Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said. He needs no endorsement from me. He is who he is. I dont think any of us are surprised when he delivers for us time and again.The Bengals (10-5-1) turned it over three times and will play at Indianapolis next Sunday. Green left the game with concussion-like symptoms and his status for the playoffs is unclear. Even if he plays, Cincinnati knows it has to be crisper than it was on a night a chance to win a second straight division crown slipped away.We had a rough day, Cincinnati coach Marvin Lewis said. Its key to take care of the football. We didnt do a very good job of it.Other things we learned as a pair of rematches next week loom.LITTLE GUYS, BIG PLAYS: Pittsburgh played without injured Troy Polamalu and Ike Taylor, fixtures of its secondary for over a decade. In their place were Brice McCain and Antwon Blake. Both players are 5-foot-9 and turned in three of the games biggest moments. McCain intercepted Andy Dalton twice while Blake caused and recovered Greens fumble.HEATED EXCHANGE: Tomlin and Nelson engaged in a brief but somewhat heated exchange during the postgame handshake. They both declined to elaborate on the conversation but it hardly appeared friendly.He was talking about some he-said, she-said type of deal, Tomlin said. I dont know what he was talking about.DANGEROUS DALTON: Dalton did little to quell the notion he lacks the grit it takes to thrive in January. He completed 27 of 38 for 244 yards and the two picks, both shoddy overthrows to Green.It was my fault, Green said. You have to be better. You cant turn the ball over.REMATCH NO. 1: The Steelers and Ravens renew one of the AFCs most heated rivalries, even if it has cooled in recent years. They split the season series, with each team winning on its home field. They are no stranger to each other in the post-season. Pittsburgh beat Baltimore in the 2009 AFC title game and again in the Divisional round two years later.Its going to be regular Ravens/Steelers, Pittsburgh linebacker James Harrison said. Smashmouth.REMATCH NO. 2: Cincinnati returns to Indianapolis, where the Colts humbled the Bengals 27-0 on Oct. 19. Cincinnati managed just 135 total net yards.Im looking forward to the opportunity to give it back to them, Bengals defensive end Carlos Dunlap said. They obviously put it on us pretty well earlier in the season.___Online: AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Darren Fells Jersey . “Im not sure well get Melky Cabrera at all,” said Gibbons. The 29-year-old left fielder struggled all season with knee and hamstring problems. Cabrera was first on the disabled list from June 27-July 20 with tendinitis in his left knee. Brandon Thomas Jersey . Never caused problems. Never raised a ruckus. Never got sick or hurt while frolicking in the fields of Claiborne Farm in Paris, Ky.LOS ANGELES -- Commissioner Don Garber thought he knew what Major League Soccer was getting into when the Los Angeles Galaxy signed David Beckham more than four years ago. Garber now realizes he had no idea what the Beckham Experience would mean for his fledgling league. A few days before Beckham plays for his first MLS title in the final days of his Galaxy contract, Garber says the league doesnt regret inviting the English superstar to become the face of MLS in 2007. "I underestimated the power of his celebrity by a long shot," Garber said in an interview with The Associated Press. "I think we underestimated the challenge of (Beckham) playing for England, and we didnt expect his desire to go out on loan (to AC Milan). But I also totally underestimated how hardworking and tough he is. He will play through injury and fatigue. That warrior-like mentality was like nobody expected in MLS. This guy wants to win, and hell do anything. Hes been great for our league and for our game." Garber spoke at length about MLS past while outlining his goals for the leagues future, from an expansion franchise in the New York area to the growing role of supporters in MLS competitive culture. Hes also hoping the Beckham experience lasts for at least another year, putting his weight behind the Galaxys bid to persuade Beckham to stick around after his best MLS season concludes this year. "I find it amusing that when David came into the league five years ago, many sports media pundits were saying how much hes over the hill," Garber said of Beckham, whose services are coveted by Paris Saint-Germain and a handful of British clubs. "You dont hear that any more, and this is five years later." Garber also is happy about the Galaxys serendipitous appearance in the MLS Cup on Sunday on their home field. Los Angeles faces the Houston Dynamo on Sunday at Home Depot Center. "At times Im almost envious of other leagues championships when it ends up with a dream matchup," Garber said, citing the recent appearances of marquee franchises such as the Yankees, Lakers and Packers in other sports championship contests. "Those matchups always seem to deliver greater value to their league in the years to come, and we have not really experienced that." The Galaxy are playing the final in their home stadium, just the third time thats happened in MLS 16 seasons. A similar coincidence boosted the popularity of the New England Revolution in 2002, even though they lost the league title to Los Angeles at home. Garber confirmed MLS is likely to change the championship format soon from a neutral-site game to a championship matchup at the home of the highest-seeded club. "Theres something much more special when the home team is involved," he said, suggesting the league will consider additional channges to the playoff format in the off-season. Cornelius Lucas Jersey. With exponential growth in attendance and television exposure this season, along with a 19th franchise joining the league in Montreal next year, its clear MLS is making progress in the long-growth strategy Garber has espoused since moving to MLS in 1999 from a job with the NFL. Yet Garber also feels the leagues 35 designated-player signings have been crucial to its growth into a reputable league. "Its hard for any young, emerging business to not be guilty at times of overhype," Garber said. "While at times I regret how hyped we were when Freddy Adu came into the league (in 2004) or when David came in, I dont regret the excitement that David created by coming in. I had the expectation that MLS would become more popular, that wed see improved ratings and a different attitude." MLS television ratings rose on each of its platforms this season, and attendance grew more than 7 per cent. MLS will appear on the new NBC Sports network next year in a lucrative deal, and the Galaxy announced a reported 10-year, $55 million deal with Time Warner Cable Sports new network on Friday -- a tenfold increase on its last deal. Merchandise sales also are up, driven by the new layer of star players and MLS attention to eye-catching design with an international flair. Yet Garber said hes most pleased by the growth of what he calls "the supporter culture" around each team. From Seattle to Philadelphia, MLS fans are emulating the involved attention given to soccer clubs on other continents in increasing numbers -- and in surprising ways. "When youre a fan of other major leagues in America, the experience is somewhat similar," Garber said. "Youre in a bright facility and youre watching your team, but there is an institutionalization of sport that in many ways forced the fan to be an observer more than a participant. In soccer, the fan is that third key constituency. Weve even seen the downside of that, but thats very positive for us today. Thats what we want to instil and create in our fans." Garber is pleased to see a proliferation of "20- to 30-year-old hipsters" in MLS crowds, wearing team garb and reveling in a sporting pursuit with a different flavour than the standard American sports enthusiast. Garbers passion for stirring fan support is the main reason MLS is focused on putting its 20th franchise in the New York area. The commissioner scoffed at recent reports that the New York expansion plan had stumbled, insisting the league will figure out a plan to create a natural rival for the Red Bulls. "We believe that big markets need rivalries," Garber said. "If we truly are engaged in the unique dynamic that drives our sport, inner-city rivalries are a big part of driving fan passion." Youth NFL Jerseys Cheap Stitched Jerseys Cheap NFL GearCheap Jerseys From China China Womens NFL Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Discount NFL Jerseys ' ' '

Durham, NC (SportsNetwork. Gonzalo Higuain Jersey .com) - Jahlil Okafor erupted for 25 points and 20 rebounds as No. 2 Duke stayed unbeaten with a 75-62 win over Elon on Monday. Okafor, considered by many as the nations top freshman, shot 10-for-14 and posted career highs in both categories. He recorded the first 20-20 game by a freshman in Duke history and became the first Blue Devil to accomplish the feat since Elton Brand in 1998. It felt great, said Okafor, who was celebrating his birthday. I felt like I was at home with my family. Amile Jefferson scored 13 points and Justise Winslow had 12 for Duke (9-0), which extended the nations longest home winning streak to 38 games. Luke Eddy paced Elon (5-5) with 16 points. After missing their first three shots, the Blue Devils made seven straight shots -- including four dunks -- to take a 15-2 lead. Okafor split a pair of free throws at the end of the first half, giving Duke its biggest lead at 36-21 heading into the locker rooms. The margin never dipped back into single digits in the second half, though Elon never felt out of the game. Dukes starters played until the final whistle, leading to a minor confrontation late in the contest. Tempers flared with 1 1/2 minutes remaining when Duke guard Rasheed Sulaimon committed a hard foul on Eddy. He received a technical in addition to a common foul during the scrum under the basket following the play. Okafor scored his 25th point on a gorgeous spin move just before that and subbed out just after to a rousing ovation from the fans at Cameron Indoor Stadium. My teammates were in my ear telling me to dominate, said Okafor. They wanted me to put up big numbers. That gave me a lot of confidence. Game Notes Duke started the season with nine straight wins by 10 or more points for the first time since 2002-03 ... Duke has won 114 straight non-conference home games ... The Blue Devils shot just 3-for-16 from behind the arc ... Elon has lost back-to-back games following a three-game win streak. Javier Mascherano Jersey . "Last year we were in a ton of situations, late-game situations we couldnt pull out. Wed kind of fold under the pressure, get frustrated or let a big shot frustrate us," guard DeMar DeRozan said. Fernando Gago Jersey . -- Manager Bob Melvin shuffled the Athletics batting order and got the type of production he was looking for from the top of the lineup.BIRMINGHAM, England -- Former world No. 1 Ana Ivanovic, who admits to a dislike of competing on grass, moved within one win of her first final on the surface with her third confident victory in a row at the Aegon Classic on Friday. The top-seeded Serbian beat the sixth-seeded Czech, Klara Koukalova, 6-1, 6-4 to reach the semifinals of the Wimbledon warm-up event. Ivanovic has described playing on grass as "like being stuck to the ground all of a sudden," but there was little wrong with her movement nor any evident lack of self-belief as she forcefully completed her win in 72 minutes. There was a 20-minute phase in the second set when Koukalova, who has a grass-court title to her name, seemed capable of regaining parity and held service up until 4-3. But Ivanovic boldly attacked off the ground to break serve in the psychologically crucial moments of the ninth game, and closed out the match without fuss. "Its a tough transition, not only in the body and thhe movement, but also in the mindset," Ivanovic said of her improved grass-court showing. Diego Maradona Jersey. She was even now able to believe she could win the tournament. "I have more confidence. Its about rhythm and getting ready for the next match. Now I have the flow," she said. Ivanovic will meet surprise semifinalist Zhang Shuai, the ninth-seeded Chinese player who patiently took advantage of an error-prone, self-critical Sloane Stephens, the third-seeded American, to win 6-3, 6-1. There will not be a fairytale finalist in the bottom half. Kimiko Date-Krumm, the 43-year-old Japanese who ousted defending champion Daniela Hantuchova on Thursday, was unable to emerge fresh for a fourth consecutive day, lasting only three-quarters of an hour in a 6-1, 6-0 loss to 16th-seeded Casey Dellacqua of Australia. In the remaining quarterfinal, Barbora Zahlavova Strycova of the Czech Republic defeated fourth-seeded Kirsten Flipkens of Belgium 6-4, 6-2. Youth NFL Jerseys Cheap Stitched Jerseys Cheap NFL Gear Cheap Jerseys From China China Womens NFL Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Discount NFL Jerseys ' ' '

SAN ANTONIO -- Even though it was an ugly victory, the banged-up San Antonio Spurs were just happy to end a three-game losing streak given their troubling rash of recent injuries. Yovani Gallardo Jersey . Tim Duncan had 23 points and 17 rebounds, Tony Parker added 18 points and 10 assists, and San Antonio rallied past the skidding Sacramento Kings 95-93 on Saturday night. The win came in San Antonios final home game before departing for its annual "Rodeo Road Trip" that lasts nearly a month. "Its huge to start the road trip like that," Parker said. "We needed a win. Obviously we were in a little slump with those three losses. We wanted to get back on the right track." Patty Mills scored 15 points and Boris Diaw added 14 for San Antonio, which wont play at home again until Feb. 26 against Detroit. Despite playing Friday night against the Dallas Mavericks, Sacramento almost spoiled the going-away party for the Spurs. Isaiah Thomas had 26 points, Rudy Gay scored 23 and Derrick Williams added 14 for the Kings, who have lost seven straight. "Were playing the San Antonio Spurs; theyre going to make their runs," Gay said. "Theyre going to make tough plays. They do that time and time again. Its not were surprised that they did that. But we still had a chance to win and I still wish I had the shot back." After scoring 22 points primarily against Marco Belinelli, Gay was limited to one in the fourth with the 6-foot-8 Diaw guarding him. Gay missed a potential game-winning, 15-foot jumper over Diaw with 0.5 seconds remaining. "The rim. The rim," Gay said when asked what he saw on the final shot. "I mean, honestly, I wish I had that one back; I dont think I miss that too many other times." After being outplayed by Gay and Thomas for much of the game, the veteran Spurs took over down the stretch to end their longest losing streak of the season. Parker and Duncan scored San Antonios final eight points, but they also gave Sacramento hope by going 1 for 3 on free throws in the final 12 seconds. Duncan missed both his attempts with the Spurs clinging to a 94-93 lead. "Very, very, very (frustrating)," Duncan said. "Not many times I get that situation. Just disappointed I couldnt step up and knock them out." The Spurs were sluggish on offence with newly signed Shannon Brown starting and Tiago Splitter returning from injury, giving them their third different starting lineup in three games. Brown, signed to a 10-day contract, had two points and two rebounds in 14 minutes. "We need minutes," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "We have to use those minutes so that guys that know the system can be out there at the end of the game. Otherwise, theyre going to be too tired at the end. He gave us good minutes so that we could get everybody else in." San Antonio shot 6 for 20 in the third quarter while falling behind by as many as 10 points. Gay and Thomas matched that production themselves, going a combined 6 for 13 in the third. Williams first 3-pointer gave Sacramento a 76-66 lead with 2 minutes left in the third. Matt Bonner hit a 3 for the Spurs and a jumper that tied the game at 85 with 6 minutes remaining. Then he drove the lane for a runner off the glass after Thomas went flying past him at the 3-point line. That gave San Antonio an 87-85 lead, its first since early in the third quarter. "(Bonner) was great," Duncan said. "He stepped up and scored a bunch of points in a row for us. Made some plays for us. Its going to be big for guys to step up as we have people out." The Spurs are still without Manu Ginobili, Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green, but Splitters return lifted their spirits. Splitter scored only two points but grabbed four rebounds and helped solidify the teams interior defence. "It was great to be back on the court with the guys," Splitter said. "I wasnt that aggressive on offence, but I just tried to help the guys on defence with the coverage and helps. Most importantly, we won, so Im happy." The Kings were missing leading scorer DeMarcus Cousins, who sat out his sixth straight game due to a sprained left ankle. Gay and Thomas made up for his loss offensively, accounting for half of the teams 53 first-half points. NOTES: Splitter got his loudest ovation of the season when he was announced in the starting lineup after missing 12 games with a sprained right shoulder. He came off the bench in the second half. ... Cousins suited up but did not play. He is day to day. ... Ginobili (strained left hamstring), Leonard (broken hand) and Green (broken left index finger) all sat behind the Spurs bench. Zach Britton Jersey .J. -- The New Jersey Devils are so bad in shootouts, coach Pete DeBoer doesnt mind seeing his team take chances in the five-minute overtime. Welington Castillo Jersey . Josh Mazzola drove in five runs to lead the Goldeyes (20-12) past the Capitales 11-5 Friday night at Le Stade Municipal in Quebec City.CHICAGO -- Marian Hossa will be sidelined for two to three weeks because of an upper-body injury, leaving the Chicago Blackhawks without one of their top scorers. Hossa was injured Saturday night during Chicagos 5-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins outside at Soldier Field. It is unclear exactly when Hossa got hurt, but he took a hard hit from Penguins forward Craig Adams during Chicagos second power play of the first period. The announcement on Monday is a big blow for the defending Stanley Cup champions, who lead the NHL with 213 goals this season. Chicago is competing with St. Louis and Anaheim for the top spot in the Western Conference. The Blackhawks and Blues also are tied for the Central Division lead with 86 points apiece. The 35-year-old Hossa has 24 goals and 26 assists in 57 games. He needs 15 points to reach 1,000 for his career. Brandon Saad moved up to take Hossas spot on the right side of Chicagos top line against the Penguins. Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville also could put Patrick Kane back together with centre Jonathan Toews, but that move would weaken the scoring ddepth on the Blackhawks lines. Cal Ripken Jersey. Hossas absence likely means more playing time for Peter Regin, who was scratched against Pittsburgh. "Theres going to be some quality ice time shared amongst the guys," Quenneville said after practice on Monday. "I thought Saader did a real good job getting put up on that line there as the game progressed the other day so well probably put him there and well get Peter back in the lineup." The 21-year-old Saad has a career-high 18 goals and 23 assists in his second full NHL season. Quenneville also indicated Hossas injury likely wont affect how the team approaches Wednesdays NHL trade deadline. "I think were fine," he said. Also Monday, the Blackhawks announced they agreed to a three-year contract extension with forward Brandon Bollig that runs through the 2016-17 season. The 27-year-old Bollig has a career-high 12 points (six goals, six assists) in 62 games. He leads the team with 138 hits and 69 penalty minutes. "Beyond excited to remain a Blackhawk for the next three years," Bollig said on Twitter. Youth NFL Jerseys Cheap Stitched Jerseys Cheap NFL Gear Cheap Jerseys From China China Womens NFL Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Discount NFL Jerseys ' ' '

SAN ANTONIO -- Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. Albert McClellan Jersey . unanimously outpointed Bryan Vera in a super middleweight rematch Saturday night at the Alamodome, rebounding from perhaps the worst performance of his career. Chavez (48-1-1) had winning scores of 114-113, 114-113 and 117-110. The Mexican fighter consistently scored with a big overhand right, his first landing squarely while Vera (23-8) was on the ropes in the third round in the non-title fight. Chavez capped it off with a jarring straight right in the middle of the ring in the 10th. Appearing to have a safe lead, Chavez mostly circled the ring and danced in the final round. Vera had a point taken away in the eighth when, while on the ropes, the Texan pulled down on Chavez from behind his head. In September, Chavez struggled while outpointing Vera in a disputed unanimous decision. Chavez failed to make weight, forfeited a six-figure portion of his purse and appeared to allow Vera to win the later rounds. Chavez appears to have revived his career and likely is in line for a title shot. It was his second fight in the past 17 months after a marijuana suspension in 2013 and a DUI in 2012. Baltimore Ravens Jerseys . -- The Tampa Bay Lightning are disappointed, though not discouraged. Ryan Jensen Jersey . Now, the hottest team on the ATP are pointing their sights on qualifying for the eight-team season finals in London next November. Pospisil has now established the year-end World Tour Finals as the benchmark for a breakthrough season, with Pospisil and Sock provisionally standing ninth.Day three was another outstanding day of football in Brazil. The goals kept pouring in – 13 on the day and now 28 goals scored in just eight matches – the most goals scored in that span in the World Cup since 1954. In comparison, there were only 25 goals scored after every team played one match at 2010 South Africa. Thats 16 games.  Three and a half goals per game is a staggering statistic, especially considering most are the product of stellar play rather than poor defending. Its also quickly becoming the World Cup of the counter-attack, where speed and finish on the rush is proving decisive. Day three was also a day of standout individual performances. Specifically, the play of the young, a veteran and a guardian of the goal stole the show. These four players from different teams, representing different confederations and playing different positions, all coming up with memorable performances on a memorable day. Young Toulouse right-back Serge Aurier was a dominant force throughout for Cote dIvoire, helping turn around the nightcap of the Super Saturday quadruple-header. The Ivorian wingback was a constant threat down the wing all night, particularly in attack. A tactical change brought on Didier Drogba for Serey Die in the 62nd minute. The change caused immediate havoc in the Japanese back four, opening up more gaps inside the 18-yard box. Aurier went to work.  It took just two minutes for Aurier to provide pinpoint service on crosses to Wilfried Bony, and then two minutes later to Gervinho. The attacking players did their part on the finish but it was the crosses that stood out. Both whipped in by Aurier with pace and precision, finding the open man rather than just hitting and hoping. There was composure about each ball, not usually seen from such a young player. His relentless energy bursting forward with strength and purpose was a difference-maker. The game shifted because of the goals, where Drogba and company were able to separate and seal the victory. The final scoreline read 2-1 with two assists for Aurier. The performance by the right back is the best weve seen so far from the position. One year his elder, James Rodriguez is a star in the making. The 22-year-old put in arguably the top display over 90 minutes of the tournament in Colombias 3-0 win over Greece.  He played a part in all three goals, scoring the third of the game. His most impressive intervention wasnt on his goal – a poised finish after receiving a back-heal from the likewise impressive Cuadrado in the 90th minute. The opening goal was of the Monaco-mans doing. Hell never get the credit Cuadrado will get, but he should.  Rodriguez started the move from his own end, playing a forty-yard ball over the top with a bend to a on-running Cuadrado. As his teammate pulled the moves out wide, Rodriguez ran the full length of the field showing in the attacking area. Cuadrado played near post to Rodriguez who dummied the ball to an awaiting Pablo Amero who provided the finish. Five minutes in and the tone had been set by the centre-midfielder.  The pass, the run, and the wherewithal to leave the ball signaled his class. All afternoon, Rodriguez ran wild, covering an incredible amount of ground and setting the tone. Rodriguez also took the corner leading to the second goal, a near-post service that was flicked before Teo Gutierrez tapped home. It was a day Colombia was able to sit back and picck their spots. C.J. Mosley Jersey. Rodriguez dictated the pace for Colombia. He was the maestro. Even if Falcao were available, it would be the young star that would prove most influential. Watch him as the tournament progresses. Rodriguez is special. Special and/or influential are a couple of apt superlatives used to describe the incomparable Andrea Pirlo. The 35-year-old Italian veteran had himself another match to remember in Italys 2-1 win over England. The intelligence by which he plays was another level to his competition. Composure is a theme here, and Pirlo was never rattled in the heat of Manaus. Pirlo completed 108 passes at a success rate of 95 per cent. Most the completed passes in the first half were without pressure. The passing out of the back in the second half under high pressure was a thing of beauty. England had no player who could limit his effectiveness. Pundits correctly point out to stop Italy you must stop Pirlo. Easier said than done. The savvy by which he plays is another level. The dummy he laid on Claudio Marchisios 35th minute strike gave his teammates ample time and space to pick his spot. England players were left without a hope.  And the moment that will provided the GIF of the night was Pirlos free kick from 25 yards out, hit dead on by the midfielder with the ball floating and bending outwards before going off the crossbar. The floating ball completely fooled goalkeeper Joe Hart, who was entirely fooled and was left going the other way. Embarrassing for Hart, masterful from Pirlo. It was another near perfect night from one of the most influential players in the World Cup. Moments can define matches. No moment Saturday proved bigger than the 44th minute of Uruguay and Costa Rica.  The highly favoured Uruguay was up 1-0 late in the first half, with the South Americans pressing for a second. What happens just before the half can have a distinct affect on what happens after play resumes.  Case and point, Robin van Persies 44th minute wonder goal and equalizer Friday, helping turn the tides against Spain. Saturday, a second goal before halftime would have buried the Ticos. Queue goalkeeper Keylor Navas.  The Costa Rican backstop had an outstanding year at Levante. His prowess was on full display in that decisive 44th minute. Diego Forlan had found space on the back post. His strike took a massive deflection off a defender and had eyes for the top right corner. Navas, caught off his line, lunged back and punched the ball out before it crossed the line. It was an incredible save to make, and a save of the tournament contender. The balance and co-ordination was outstanding at a difficult moment. Im comfortable saying if Navas doesnt make the save, Costa Rica loses the match.  Navas remained a rock amidst pressure in the second half. He even guessed right on Edinson Cavanis penalty. Navas was in the zone and gives further reason to believe Costa Rica can remain competitive in Group D.   These were four different contexts and four specials performances on an extraordinary Saturday at the World Cup. The high level of overall attacking play is making for a distinctive tournament. But its these kinds of special moments and exceptional performances that will live for the ages. No matter age, position, or method, Aurier, Rodriguez, Pirlo and Navas have already left their mark in Brazil. And to think, the best may be still to come.  Youth NFL Jerseys Cheap Stitched Jerseys Cheap NFL Gear Cheap Jerseys From China China Womens NFL Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Discount NFL Jerseys ' ' '

NEW YORK, N. Davante Adams Jersey .Y. - The New York Yankees have reinstated Carlos Beltran from the 15-day disabled list and put him into the starting lineup against Oakland. Beltran was batting fifth as the designated hitter Thursday. Infielder Scott Sizemore was designated for assignment. The switch-hitting Beltran was put on the DL on May 15 because of pain related to a bone spur in his right elbow. Beltran says he feels fine, but can feel a "hard stretch" in the affected area. He says he expects to have surgery after the season to remove a loose chip. The All-Star outfielder says he hasnt thrown since the injury. Manager Joe Girardi says hes not sure when Beltran will play the outfield again. Beltran is hitting .234 with five home runs and 15 RBIs this season. Sizemore hit .313 with four RBIs in six games for the Yankees. He also took part in a triple play. Ty Montgomery Jersey . A-Rod is also disqualified from any post-season play. So at the tender age of 38, he will miss all of next season. As a result of missing the coming season, hes also out $25 million (which coincidentally is my hourly rate). Kentrell Brice Jersey .Cameron sustained his third concussion in three seasons last week on a hit by Oakland safety Brandion Ross, who was fined $22,050 by the NFL for the helmet-to-helmet blow.TORONTO - Each night, the spotlight is seemingly locked in on a different Raptors player, often stepping out of their comfort zone to ignite the team to victory. On Sunday, an overtime win in New York, it was Patrick Pattersons unlikely late-game defensive performance on Carmelo Anthony. Less than 24 hours later, Patterson recorded a career-best six assists off the bench, but it was newly-minted starter Landry Fields that turned heads in Torontos 95-82 comeback win over the Orlando Magic. Early in the first quarter, Fields grabbed a long rebound and proceeded to dribble the length of the court. Leading a two-on-one fast break, the Raptors sporadically-used swingman went behind the back to find Amir Johnson, who finished the play off with a baby-hook shot. Not to be outdone, with just over four minutes to go in the third quarter, Kyle Lowry drove into the lane, broke down the defence with a wicked crossover and found an open Fields in the right corner. That put extra pressure on me, Fields said of Lowrys drive and dish. It was a great move. It was like, Ive got to hit this now. Fields, a spectator for most of last season and the early part of this year, has started four straight games in place of the injured DeMar DeRozan after sitting out the previous nine contests as a healthy scratch. You could almost see the wheels turning in his head as he debated whether or not to let it fly. The fifth-year vet hadnt attempted a three-pointer in a game in over a year. He hadnt made one since Mar. 22, 2013. It was a spot and opportunity where it was just like, Whatever, Ill put it up there, he said after the game. I just threw it up there and it went in. It was nice. The first thing Fields did was look over to his teammates on the bench. They were standing. On the sideline, I look over, and everybody on the bench is standing up, he recalled. It also shows the kind of camaraderie and chemistry we have as a team. They were loving it and so were the fans - another sellout crowd. But no one appreciated the moment quite like Fields, who couldnt hide the big smile on his face as he back-pedalled to get back on defence. Fields had attempted 219 threes as a rookie with the Knicks, shooting them at a solid 39 per cent clip. It was a big part of his game until a mysterious wrist and elbow injury interfered with his shooting mechanics, among other things. Despite undergoing a pair of surgical procedures on his shooting arm over his three-year tenure with the Raptors, they still dont know a whole lot about the injury - what caused it or how to fully heal it. Its still something he battles, working tirelessly over the years to rebuild his shot. With the history with my arm and everything, its just been a long time coming, the 26-year-old said of his three-pointer. I try not to think [about it]. It kind of lessens the reaction of it. Its still there no matter what. Theres nothing I can do about it. I just want to play through it. Its been a couple years with it now. In practice and situations when Im out there, you kind of find your spots where you can be successful. Right now, the coaches, what they say to me is defence. Whatever is added on to it is kind of extra. Thats kind of been how its transformed. For the third time in three meetings with Orlando this season, the Raptors fell behind in the first half. They went nearly seven minutes at the end of the second quarter without a field goal, coughing up an early 10-point lead in thhe process. Brett Hundley Jersey. . Trailing by eight at halftime, Dwane Casey spoke to his team. Coach started off with his speech, Patterson said. Getting on us, yelling at us. I dont want to give our guys an excuse but we got in at two in the morning, come through Customs; we have to sit at the gate in New York forever, Casey said. I dont know if they do that on purpose or what. And then we get in late, back-to-back, overtime game [on Sunday night]. We had every excuse in the world and thats what I told them at halftime. The second half we found our voice, our energy, our spirit. At some point between the halves, Lowry decided they were not losing this game, as he tends to do. The Raptors point guard set the tone, scoring the first five points of the third quarter. Overall, Toronto held the Magic to 30 points in the final 24 minutes, outscoring them by 21 and winning their 10th straight meeting with Orlando. Although guys were a little bit tired and exhausted, we had a great motivational speech in the locker room at halftime and then guys just came out and stepped it up, said Patterson, who scored 10 points, reaching double digits for the ninth time in 10 games. It started off with Kyle being the leader that he is and it just carried over to everyone else. Valanciunas big week The Raptors have become a staple in the conversation for the Eastern Conferences weekly award. Lou Williams earned Player of the Week honours in the East during the middle of November while Lowry got the nod for the first seven-day stretch of December. Although they relinquished the award to Washingtons John Wall this past week, Jonas Valanciunas was one of three players (Wall and Atlantas Al Horford being the others) to earn nominations in the conference, thanks in large part to his dominant effort on the boards. The third-year centre grabbed 13.5 rebounds per night in four games last week to lead the East over that span, recording double-doubles in three of those contests. He averaged 13.5 points and shot 56 per cent from the field. After surrendering a series of key offensive boards, giving up a winnable game to the Cavaliers midway through the week, rebounding became a focus for Caseys team. Valanciunas responded to that challenge. Hes done a heck of a job of rebounding, Casey said. Hes done an extra special job of rebounding the ball and getting in the mix. Hasnt really scored as well. Hes had some good opportunities hes missed that he could probably make, but hes done an excellent job of rebounding and commanding the paint. Thats what we need from him. Valanciunas is logging over 30 minutes per contest in December after playing just 25 last month and Casey is becoming more comfortable leaving him on the floor down the stretch of close games. His dominance on the glass has been a big reason for his increased playing time. The Raptors have been subpar in that category this season, ranking 16th overall in rebounding (rate), but Valanciunas ranks in the top seven at his position (minimum 15.0 minutes per game). Hes been going and getting it, thats the difference, said the Raptors coach. Thats all you can say, is for someone to go get it with two hands, snap it in, dont let a little guard come up under you. I always tell guys, the dentist office is open tomorrow if the little guards come in there. Youre allowed one pivot and make sure you use it properly. Thats what hes been doing. Im being simplistic, but thats the difference. Youth NFL Jerseys Cheap Stitched Jerseys Cheap NFL Gear Cheap Jerseys From China China Womens NFL Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Discount NFL Jerseys ' ' '

LONDON -- Jason Puncheon put his penalty-taking credentials to rest by slotting one for Crystal Palace to beat Stoke 1-0 on Saturday for their first win in the English Premier League since Boxing Day. Jeff Bagwell Jersey . Puncheons humbling miss in the 2-0 loss to Tottenham last weekend set off a war of words with former Palace manager Neil Warnock, who suggested he would never have let Puncheon take a spot kick. The dispute lingered, and Warnock threatened legal action before Palace manager Tony Pulis cooled things down by supporting Puncheon for future penalties. When the chance came in the 51st minute, Puncheon, on loan from Southampton, took his time and drove the ball past Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland. The end of Palaces three-match winless run lifted it out of the relegation zone, and kept Stoke winless for a fifth successive league match. Mike Scott Astros Jersey . On Saturday, the paths of Drew Tate and Kevin Glenn cross again as opposing quarterbacks. Mike Scott Jersey .com) - Edmonton Oilers forward Taylor Hall left Saturdays game against the Senators in the second period with a left knee injury.BARCELONA, Spain -- Lionel Messi is about to get a big raise, with reports saying the Barcelona forward is set to make about $34 million per year.

Barcelona did not release details of the deal, but called it "an agreement to adjust the terms in the contract binding Leo Messi to the club." Messi, who is expected to sign the restructured deal in the coming days, already has a contrract with the Spanish champions through the 2017-18 season, making a reported $22 million per season. Jon Singleton Jersey. He also has a buy-out clause of 250 million euros ($343 million). Messi is seven goals shy of becoming the Spanish leagues all-time leading scorer. He has scored 354 goals at Barcelona, including five straight seasons of at least 40. The four-time Ballon dOr winner has scored 28 league goals this season. "Everything he does well also rubs off on us and makes us better," Barcelona coach Gerardo Martino said Friday, a day before his team plays Atletico Madrid for the Spanish league title. China NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Jerseys Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Camo ' ' '

PRATTVILLE, Ala. Desmond Trufant Jersey . - South Koreas Mi Jung Hur birdied four of the last eight holes Saturday for a 5-under 67 and a share of the lead with Paula Reto in the Yokohama Tire LPGA Classic.Beginning of the round my putting wasnt that good, Hur said. But after turned the nine holes, my putting gets better and better, so I had a low score.Reto, the second-round leader, birdied three of the final five holes for a 70 to match Hur at 15-under 201 on Capitol Hills links-style Senator layout.I didnt start too well, said Reto, a former Purdue player from South Africa.

TORONTO -- With their lead atop the American League East on shaky ground after a disappointing road trip, the Toronto Blue Jays wanted to set the tone early for a nine-game homestand with a strong effort against New York on Monday night. Bryce Harper Jersey . Adam Lind provided the power and rookie starter Marcus Stroman had the best start of his young career as the Blue Jays dumped the Yankees 8-3 at Rogers Centre. Stroman, making his fifth start for Toronto, allowed one earned run and three hits over a career-high eight innings. "Shoot, it was a fantastic job," said Blue Jays manager John Gibbons. "We needed that. We needed shutdown innings early on to give us a chance to get on the board. Pretty impressive." Toronto (43-35) opened the scoring with a single run in the first inning and Lind belted a three-run shot off New York starter Chase Whitley in the Blue Jays six-run second. That was more than enough offence for Stroman (4-2), who tied a career high with seven strikeouts. "I felt my change-up was a big pitch today," he said. "Even though I didnt use it much, when I did use it, it was pretty crucial. I was just down in the zone today. Me and (catcher Dioner Navarro) got on a pretty good roll." Stromans lone blemish was a solo shot by Mark Teixeira, who hit his 13th homer of the season in the fourth inning to put New York (39-36) on the board. The Yankees fell into third place with the loss, 2 1/2 games behind Toronto. The Baltimore Orioles remained in second place, 1 1/2 games back, after a 6-4 win over the Chicago White Sox. Torontos offensive outburst was most welcome for a team that was coming off a disappointing 3-7 road trip and had been held to three runs or less in 11 of its last 16 games. The Blue Jays also had to make lineup adjustments with Jose Bautista out for at least a few days with a left hamstring strain and Brett Lawrie on the disabled list with a broken finger. Lind, who has been nursing a sore foot of late, helped fill the void by driving in four runs and scoring twice in the opener of the three-game set. "Lind is a big part of this offence," Gibbons said. "He kills right-handers." Edwin Encarnacion had three hits and Melky Cabrera had two hits and scored twice as Toronto outhit New York 13-6. Anthony Gose chipped in with a pair of hits and made an excellent running catch against the wall in right field in the sixth inning. "The defence behind me was unbelievable," Stroman said. "Eddie made two great plays, Gose with an unbelievable play. Stuff like that kind of picks you up and gives you much more confidence going into the next couple innings." Whitley (3-1), meanwhile, allowed eight earned runs, 11 hits and three walks while striking out a pair. "It seemed like when he made a mistake, they hit it hard and when he made a good pitch, they seemed to find a hole with it," said Yankees manager Joe Girardi. "It was the combination of that. It was a tough start for him." Toronto reliever Chad Jenkins relieved Stroman and gave up two runs over two-thirds of an inning. With two runners in scoring position, Aaron Loup got Brian Roberts to fly out to end the game. Notes: Announced attendance was 31,554 and the game took two hours 45 minutes to play. ... Whitleys earned-run average rose to 4.07 from 2.56 while Stromans fell to 4.25 from 5.14. ... Steve Tolleson replaced Francisco at third base in the seventh inning. ... Both Bautista and Lawrie were hurt Sunday in Cincinnati. Bautista said theres a chance he could play at some point in this series but Lawrie, from Langley, B.C., will likely be out for three to six weeks. ... Bautista has been named captain of the American League Home Run Derby team for the July 14 event during all-star week at Minnesotas Target Field. Colorados Troy Tulowitzki will captain the National League side. ... Toronto recalled Gose and fellow outfielder Kevin Pillar from triple-A Buffalo on Monday and optioned catcher Erik Kratz to the Bisons. ... Left-hander Mark Buehrle (10-4, 2.32) is scheduled to start Tuesday against New York right-hander David Phelps (3-4, 4.13). ... Following the series against the Yankees, the Blue Jays will continue their nine-game homestand with a four-game series against the White Sox. Toronto will get an off-day Monday before a two-game mini-series against the Milwaukee Brewers. ... Cabrera has had at least one hit in his last 20 games against the Yankees. He has reached base safely in all 22 career games against his former club. ... Yangervis Solarte ended an 0-for-28 skid with an RBI single in the ninth. Adam Lind Jersey . Mired in an offensive slump, Lowry - the NBAs leader in taking charges this season - did what he has learned to do best, standing his ground and drawing a crucial offensive foul on the Cavaliers all-star point guard. Fast forward 30 seconds to the Cavs next possession, with the home team still trailing by three, Spencer Hawes - one of the leagues best passing big men - threw an interception, intended for Tyler Zeller and picked off by DeMar DeRozan. Daniel Murphy Jersey .

MELBOURNE, Australia -- Jason Day made a 7-foot par-saving putt on the 16th hole, Thomas Bjorn bogeyed and the Australian won his first tournament in nearly three years at the World Cup at Royal Melbourne. Ryan Kalil Jersey . Days closing 70 left him with a 10-under 274, two strokes ahead of Bjorn with a 71. Adam Scott finished third after a 66, three strokes behind. Scott, trying to win his third tournament in a row, shot 75 on the opening day, including a nine on the 12th hole, and spent the rest of the tournament trying to catch up. Day won $1.2 million and Australia won the team portion of the World Cup as Day and Scott, who each holed approach shots for eagles Sunday, also shared the $600,000 first-place prize.Brenton Bersin Jersey .6 seconds left to give the Toronto Raptors a 92-89 victory over the Boston Celtics in an exhibition game Wednesday night. Taylor Moton Jersey . Sure, Josh Browns 45-yard field goal on the third drive of overtime lifted the New York Giants to a 23-20 win over Detroit on Sunday. But the Lions (7-8) dropped themselves out of the NFC North race by losing five of their last six games, blowing fourth-quarter leads in each setback.There is a list right now that is at least five fighters long. All injured. These fighters suffered mostly knee injuries and all of these ailments are bad news for fight fans. Chris Weidman, Georges St. Pierre, and Tarec Saffiedine top the list and for St. Pierre, its the second time with this particular injury. This is the toughest sport on the planet. Tell me another sport where the practice claims as many injuries as the game itself. Honestly I have never worked with an athlete who can get back into training within two weeks of a fight. Ok, thats a lie, Ive had a few fighters get first round KOs. If the fight goes one round, the fighter is going to miss two weeks at least. The whole point of me writing about the training is to bring about a change in the fans perspective of what goes into a fight, for example the lead up is intense. As my seventh week goes in the books, I needed the support over at Elite Performance. I dont want to diet anymore and I dont want to push hard. 500 feet on the Jacobs ladder, five sets of five minute long foot touches on a tall box with a minute rest and speed skipping are all grinding on me.  Add that to the fact that Im only hitting a heavy bag or working with the Nexersys for striking, Im not sparring or rolling with anyone. MMA fighters are impressive for making it through a camp. So as Jeff Fisher gently encourages me to get through my bike sprints with 1100% effort, or go train somewhere else if I want to take it easy, I think about guys who train so hard they get injured. Sam Mills Jersey. The guys who dig down deep, do the physical conditioning, then go full throttle spar.  Then after all of that, go into a cage and fight for 15 to 25 minutes. As they compete, if the action slows because two great fighters find themselves in a ground game stalemate, the crowd boos. That infuriates me. Id love every fan to get to the seventh, eighth, ninth or any week of a training camp. Eat the food, drink the water, sweat, and put in the hours. Then grapple with even just an average level jujitsu player. Once you get pinned, and you grab on for dear life, think about how boring it is to be there. The game, and what people who understand MMA love is the chess match. Its the preparation that went into that moment when two amazing athletes find themselves in a tie. The training, the work, and the injuries are what make MMA an amazing sport. Go put your time in. Change your health, fitness and your view of whats really going on in that cage. If you have tried CrossFit, go spend some time kickboxing, or better, try jujitsu. There is no better workout on the planet. Week 7 is in the books and the lesson learned is really how tough this is on the body. Im not even competing. Shout out to Dan Henderson at 40+ to be doing this and knocking people out. China NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL JerseysDiscount NFL Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Camo ' ' '
