MIAMI -- The Atlanta Hawks won in a different manner than usual. Dave Henderson Jersey .The Miami Heat, their story stayed the same.Dennis Schroder scored 18 points, Paul Millsap and Tim Hardaway Jr. each had 15 and the Hawks pushed their winning streak to five games by beating the reeling Heat 93-90 on Tuesday night.The Hawks were held nearly 17 points below their season scoring average, and prevailed despite shooting just 35 percent in the fourth quarter.To find a way to win on the road against a team that competes every night in Miami, I think its a positive, Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said.Mike Muscala scored 14 and Kent Bazemore added 12 for the Hawks. Dwight Howard had 11 points and 11 rebounds for the Hawks, before leaving with 3:06 left in the third quarter with a bruised left thigh.Were obviously not playing our best basketball yet, Millsap said.Hassan Whiteside scored 19 points and grabbed an NBA season-high 25 rebounds for Miami, which has now dropped six straight. The eight Heat losses so far this season have come by an average of 6.9 points -- with three of the last four coming by four points or less.All of the teams that have beaten Miami so far are currently over .500.Were not losing to bad teams, Whiteside said. Were right there. It makes no sense to get down on ourselves. Its not like were getting blown out. Were still a top-five defensive team. Were just trying to get the offense there. Were going to get it right.Josh Richardson also scored 19 for Miami, which got 14 points from Tyler Johnson, 13 from James Johnson and 11 from Dion Waiters.Miami got within one twice in the final 13.6 seconds, but the Hawks held on with free throws. Schroder swished a pair with 5.9 seconds left to put Atlanta up by three, and the Heat -- with no timeouts -- lost when Waiters 3-pointer hit the rim and bounced away as time expired.This is where you just have to have great mental resolve to stay the course, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. Eventually, you get your breakthrough.TIP-INSHawks: Despite his night ending early, Howard got his eighth double-double in 10 games this season. ... The Hawks have been the NBAs best team so far this season in forcing turnovers, and were at it again Tuesday. They turned 23 Heat turnovers into 25 pointsHeat: Miami was again without point guard Goran Dragic (sprained ankle) and now is without forward Justise Winslow (sprained wrist). Rodney McGruder started for Winslow. ... Plenty of seats were empty, but the game was declared Miamis 300th consecutive home sellout based on tickets distributed.HI, MOMThe Heat honor a soldier before every home game, and choose a player to present him or her with an award in a center-court ceremony. Richardson got picked to do the honors Tuesday night -- since the Heat were honoring his mother, retiring U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Alice Richardson.HI, DADHardaway Jr. finally had a good game in the building where his fathers number is retired.Tim Hardaways No. 10 sways from the Heat rafters next to Alonzo Mournings No. 33 (and soon, Shaquille ONeals No. 32). But his son had struggled in his first four games as a visitor to Miami, shooting a combined 7 for 36 -- including 1 for 20 from 3-point range.But he made 6 of 10 shots on Tuesday.UP NEXTHawks: Host Milwaukee on Wednesday. Atlanta is off to a 5-1 start at home this season.Heat: Host Milwaukee on Thursday. The Heat will spend part of Wednesday handing out Thanksgiving dinners to 600 underprivileged families. Santiago Casilla Jersey . PAUL, Minn. Marcus Semien Jersey . -- About a third of the way through the regular season, the Washington Wizards are at . http://www.athleticsrookiestore.com/Athletics-Chris-Hatcher-Kids-Jersey/ . JOHNS, N. It is strange that the one thing standing between Russell Westbrook and near-universal adoration was Kevin Durant. Westbrook has been the most nitpicked superstar of the past decade, save perhaps for the post-Decision LeBron James.Every flailing Westbrook drive and bonked pullup represented precious chances that could have gone to Durant instead. Every 10-of-30 frenzy inspired pearl-clutching ruminations about what True Point Guards were supposed to do.Durant is gone now, and everyone seems delighted to watch Westbrook play the exact same way -- without another superstar to feed. This is the season of Westbrook unhinged. We are tired of thinking about him, and ready to just gawk at the rampage.This is the halo of liberty that protects a superstar playing alone. James Harden has enjoyed a variant of it in Houston, especially as Dwight Howard faded, and now that Howard is in Atlanta, Harden should have carte blanche in Mike DAntonis go-go offense. Sure, people complain about Hardens cadaver defense and occasional showboat dribble-fests. But surround a singular star with role players, and almost no one is going to fault him for dominating the ball.With Kevin gone, says one rival executive, its totally fine for Russ to do all the crap he does.Its possible Westbrook is about to produce a season of straight-line, single-minded fury weve never seen before. When Durant missed the last two months of 2014-15, Westbrook hoarded 40 percent of Oklahoma Citys possessions with a shot, turnover or drawn foul -- a number that would set the all-time record if done over a full season. He might come closer to averaging a triple-double than anyone since Oscar Robertson did in 1962.And the Thunder will win many fewer games than they did during Westbrooks sometimes awkward partnership with Durant. After a year or two of trudging to 45 wins, the halo dissipates; the lone superstar becomes Carmelo Anthony, besieged with questions about why he cant win on his own -- and whether hes even cut out to be the proverbial Best Player on a Championship Team.No superstar can win without at least one other All-Star. Even Michael Jordan needed Scottie Pippen. Westbrook, at least while he retains peak athleticism, can be the best player on a championship-level team -- or at least a co-best player. He just needs elite outside help, and that will be one of the more intriguing questions as the league watches Westbrook do whatever he does in a post-KD world: Which other star will want to sign up as his partner in one of the leagues teensiest markets?Durant won four scoring titles and one MVP sharing the rock with Westbrook, and if not for some absurdly ill-timed injuries, the Thunder may have won a title even after swapping Harden. That makes the idea that another superstar cant mesh with Westbrook potentially ridiculous.Dig into newfangled tracking stats -- time of possession, total touches and dribbles -- and Westbrook looks very much like Chris Paul, Reggie Jackson, Kemba Walker, LeBron, John Wall, Harden and other guys who orchestrate offenses. Every star gets the ball a lot; pair them up, and someone is sacrificing. Its just a math problem, and its not new. And remember: Even Paul, the pass-first Point God, has talked openly about his struggles relinquishing control of the Clippers offense so that Blake Griffin might explore the breadth of his game.Westbrook dished 10.4 assists per game last season, a career high, and has finished second behind Paul in assist rate in each of the past two seasons. Westbrook arrives every season with new passes in his bag. Can a player like that really be selfish?But Westbrook is different than those other guys. He shoots more than they do, and passes a bit less often, per touch, than a typical ball-dominant point guard, per SportVU data. The difference between Paul and Westbrook might be four or five shots per game, but when a team gets only, say, 95 possessions, those five shots represent real meat for any superstar partner.The Thunder as a team ranked dead last in total passes last season, and have been in the bottom five since the NBA began (publicly) tracking this stuff. At times, their offense has looked like a creeping dictatorship. If your point guard walks the ball up and kills seven more seconds calling a play, sometimes the only realistic result of his first pass is a shot attempt -- and a potential assist. Does anyone other than the guy catching that pass have any fun?The Thunder fought through a ton of stagnant possessions like that, sometimes during their worst crunch-time meltdowns. Look at Durant and Enes Kanter gesturing and pointing as Westbrook attempts to communicate what in the hell everyone is supposed to do. That happened a lot. The Thunder led the league in confused shrugs during the first 15 seconds of half-court possessions.Its hard to untangle whose fault that was, or whether it even mattered. The Thunders offense never looked pretty, but on balance, they were the best scoring team in the NBA over the past half-decade. Coaches tried every season to introduce more ball movement, but it never took.Part of that is absolutely on Westbrook. He jacks nutty shots, and he has had to learn and memorize reads that come more naturally to guys -- like Paul - who have played point guard their whole lives. Westbrook has struggled at times to get the Thunder into their offense early in possessions. He has an unwavering belief that he can do it all by himself if he has to.But the Thunder drafted Westbrook knowing he had limited experience running the point. In building his team, Oklahoma City GM Sam Presti has generally leaned toward athleticism, length and character over feel for the game. (Note: This hasnt always been true, but some of the craftier draftees havent played much, or at all. Thats true in the case of Mitch McGary, and remains to be seen regarding Domantas Sabonis.) Everyone wanted Oklahoma City to be more Spurs-y, but the Thunder just havent had a lot of core guys who read-and-react at anywhere near that level. Swing the ball to Serge Ibaka, and its not second nature for him to pivot into a killer dribble handoff that keeps the machine whirring.In that context, who else but Westbrook and Durant should do stuff with the ball?The Thunder also advanced very far, very fast, playing that way, and everyone who has been around the team agrees their success made it hard to coax Westbrook and Durant toward a more pass-happy style. Maybe former Thunder coach Scott Brooks wasnt the right fit for that, anyway. But reinvention would have been risky, especially given the lack of playmakers on the roster.Some of those possessions stalled because Westbrook waited as Durant scampered around two or three screens. Sometimes, Durant didnt cut hard enough to ditch his defender. Sometimes, Ibaka whiffed on picks. If that first action produced nothing, the Thunder were already up against the shot clock.Thats part of what makes this new Westbrook-centric team so interesting: 75 percent of Oklahoma Citys playbook vanished with Durant and Ibaka. Coach Billy Donovan has to reorient his entire offense around Westbrook. The offense started tilting that direction anyway as Westbrook developed a lethal pick-and-roll chemistry with Steven Adams:Westbrook would be unstoppable in a spread pick-and-roll system. Pair him with a screener who dives to the hoop, surround the duo with three shooters, and he will tear apart opposing defenses. Imagine the damage he would do in Jacksons role in Detroit, running a two-man ballet with Andre Drummond.The Thunder understood this and allowed Westbrook to gradually wrest more conttrol of the offense. Joe Morgan Jersey. Two and three seasons ago, Durant touched the ball as often as Westbrook and ran nearly as many pick-and-rolls. The shift toward Westbrook started out of necessity in 2014-15, when Durant missed 55 games, and continued last season when Durant was back.It made intuitive sense: Durant is much more dangerous away from the ball. Defenders stick to him 30 feet from the rim, freeing up the lane for Westbrooks mad dashes. Flip roles, and Westbrooks defender would clog up Durants driving lanes.Westbrook is the more dynamic ball handler. It is basically impossible to keep him away from the rim if he has any space. He can dust almost anyone one-on-one, and if you so much as lean in the wrong direction navigating a Westbrook pick-and-roll, youre done.When defenders duck under picks against Westbrook, he just puts his head down, revs the engine, and outraces them to the other side of the screen. Hes the NBAs race car: You sometimes hear his drives, and feel them, more than you see them.Even in the age of the 3-pointer, there is no substitute for a destroyer who can knife to the rim at will. There is no defensive scheme other than, Oh crap, send help, for a maniac about to dunk. Westbrook is almost a one-man small-ball deterrent; if you dont have a real rim protector in the game, hes going to finish enough layups to break your defense.He has also become a much craftier passer in fluid situations. He maps the floor in ways he couldnt manage three or four years ago. He knows where all nine other players are at the start of a play, and importantly, where they will go once he picks one of the options before him.He slings it lefty now, and with a soft touch on lobs and pocket passes. He ranks among the very best at setting up dunks and layups. Westbrooks improved vision in the pick-and-roll was a big reason the Thunder generated way more corner 3s last season than ever before.Even so, the Thunder could never lose the your turn, my turn vibe to their offense; after a few Westbrook pick-and-rolls, it was time to call something for Durant. Now Westbrook can play with freedom, and perhaps even more pace, since he doesnt have to wait for Durant to run around baseline picks.Alas, without Durant, the Thunder dont have the shooting to support a spread pick-and-roll attack. Victor Oladipo, a junior varsity Westbrook, is a career 34 percent shooter from deep, though he has done better than that on the sorts of catch-and-shoot looks Westbrook will get for him. But if the Thunder start Westbrook, Oladipo, Andre Roberson and Adams, opponents will smother the lane -- even if Donovan slots Ersan Ilyasova, a stretchy James Dean look-alike, as the fifth starter at power forward.Even Westbrook runs into issues when multiple defenders lay in wait for him near the basket.The Thunder have a few long-shot remedies. They could throw Alex Abrines, their sharpshooting rookie from Spain, right into major NBA minutes. They could pray that Kyle Singler rebounds from a catastrophic tenure so far in Oklahoma City. Maybe this is the year a coach trusts Anthony Morrow. (It isnt.) Oladipo might work best as a super sixth man, untethered a bit from Westbrook, but the Thunder dont have the wing depth to bring him off the bench.Theyll try King Joffrey Lauvergne, recently acquired from Denver, as a shooter at both big man positions; Lauvergne shot 50 percent on long 2-pointers last season, though he clanked from deep and cant defend opposing power forwards far from the rim.Most likely, the Thunder will just make do without much shooting. It will take some nuance and craft. Teams will barricade Westbrooks basic high pick-and-rolls when they can. Westbrook will have to suck the defense toward one side, swing the ball to Oladipo on the other side, and see what seams might open:Roberson is a canny passer and cutter, and Adams is developing a really nice feel for how to keep the ball moving. People who know Westbrook suggest he might play a more egalitarian style than those anticipating a scorched-earth revenge tour might expect. Westbrook has shown glimpses of a nifty off-ball game. He got a bundle of baseline dunks on backdoor passes from Durant out of this specific action:Westbrooks cutting always seemed a bit scripted and mechanical, though: When we run this play, I cut here. In the flow, he would often just stand and watch Durant work. Cameron Payne represented another ball handler who might open up Westbrooks cutting game, but he broke a bone in his foot on Tuesday.Its a tricky balance, anyway. Were all guilty of fetishizing the Spurs and Stephen Currys give-it-up, get-it-back style, but not everyone shoots it well enough to thrive that way. Westbrook needs the ball, and its unclear whether any team featuring him would be better off if he had it less.Given a potentially severe lack of shooting, it might take a little more guile than Go, Russ for the Thunder to open pathways to the rim. Once they do, they will gobble up more second-chance points than anyone. They led the league last season in offensive rebounding rate, and the gap between the Thunder and the No. 2 team (Detroit) was the largest in league history. When Westbrook played the last 27 games of the 2014-15 season without Durant (and then Ibaka), their offensive rebounding rate soared even higher. Every deranged Westbrook drive leaves easy put-back attempts in its wake for Adams, Kanter, Roberson, and other Thunder mooches.If the Thunder focus harder on defense -- something they let slide in the regular season last year, and cant let slide anymore -- this haphazard, brutal style can win 45-ish games with Westbrook at the controls. The Thunder should make the playoffs. That is the best they can do, since Presti had no time or resources to tailor his team to Westbrook.Going forward, the Thunder need another stud player -- or two very good ones -- who fit the spread pick-and-roll model and unlock other options when playoff defenses tighten. The organization knows that. Maybe its Gordon Hayward or Paul George as a supplementary ball handler who can space the floor on the wing. Maybe its squeezing Blake Griffin into the connector role between Westbrook and Adams that Griffin plays now between Paul and DeAndre Jordan. Maybe its a pick-and-roll dive man even better than Adams, with a face-up game -- Westbrooks version of Amare Stoudemire.A big man would be the more natural partner. They arent as accustomed to handling the ball, they set screens, and it is harder for defenses to switch a point guard-big man pick-and-roll.Its trite to say Westbrook isnt good enough to be the undisputed alpha dog on a championship team, and its correct that teams with point guards as their best players rarely win the title. That doesnt mean those things hold in perpetuity. Build the right roster around Westbrook, and the Thunder could get damned close.That involves snagging another star. Every player in that fraternity will be watching Westbrook this season. Players marveled at the triple-double numbers Westbrook put up in Durants absence to close the 14-15 season, but the spectacle rubbed some of them the wrong way.Hes putting up insane numbers, Clippers guard J.J. Redick told me on a podcast that spring, but after we played them, it was like, OK, a different MVP for me. Its kind of crazy how many possessions he uses.Everyone admires Westbrooks snarling anger and balls-to-the-wall competitiveness. They want that fire in their teammates. They also want the ball.

It wasnt so long ago that record-keeping in tennis consisted mainly of random, yellowing draw sheets tucked away in filing cabinets at various tennis clubs or tennis federation offices. http://www.ravensrookiestore.com/Ravens-Javorius-Allen-Jersey/ . As the pro game matured, those who run it have done their best to emulate companion spectator sports by creating a massive body of statistical knowledge.Stats in tennis -- as in all sports -- ought to come with a warning label: Do not extrapolate too much from these simple numbers. Its often said that statistics dont lie. Thats certainly true, but theyre pretty good at fibbing. Thats also part of what makes them fascinating. Stats raise as many puzzling questions as they answer -- and sometimes force us to re-examine our preconceptions.Here are half a dozen examples:Queen Sara of the ServeSara Errani put 85.5 percent of her first serves into play. Some will shrug and say, Big deal; her serve is a puffball, and she just makes sure to get the first one into play taking no risk. Fair enough, but consider this: The second best current percentage belongs to No. 64 Cagla Buyukakcay of Turkey, and shes more than a full 12 percentage points behind. Thats a startling difference.No. 3 Annika Beck is just a hair over one percentage point behind Buyukakcay, and the women behind her are equally closely stacked. Thats typical of percentage-based stats, in both the mens and womens game, and in most departments. That makes Erranis enormous differential that much more impressive. Most players couldnt hit that percentage if they served underhand. Efficient as Errani is, she is ranked only No. 35 on tour.?That and a buck will get you a donutIts often said that second-serve return points won is one of the most crucial statistics, and theres significant evidence for that. Among players with 500 career matches or more, only one won more than 10,000 second-serve return points -- yet never won a Grand Slam title: The Little Beast, David Ferrer.Ferrer is one of 10 players tied for second place among crack returners, with a 55 percent career winning rate. That right behind seven-time Grand Slam champion and acknowledged return genius Andre Agassi. Among Ferrers equals: Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Michael Chang.Moreover, Ferrer is the all-time leader in the sheer number of second-serve return points won with a whopping 17,015. All that, but never a major title.Sveta in the clutchSvetlana Kuznetsova is back in the top 10, at age 31. A two-time Grand Slam champion, ever-popular Sveta had to fight for every inch of her rankings progress. The only title she won this season was at Sydney in just her second tournament of the year. The key to her success: scraping through down-to-the-wire matches. Kuznetsova is 16-6 in three-setters this season -- more wins than any other WTA player. Did she make the most of her labors? Second on the list: Angelique Kerber, at 15-5, who won two Grand Slam titles and is presently ranked No. 1.Hall of ShameIn examining stats, we tend to look for top numbers -- leaders rather than laggards. But have you ever wondered who the worst second-serve returner is? Or the worst ace-producer? We are here to help.When it comes to break points saved, highly touted Borna Coric clearly has some work to do: He ranks No. 62, at 54 percent. Thats a full 20 percentage points behind the tour leader and fellow Croatian countryman Ivo Karlovic. The ATP stops keeping track beyond Coric. The good news for Coric fans: Hes just 19 years old and has time to work on it.John Isner holds 94 percent of his service games. No surprise there. Guess which big-serving lefty wins just 73 percent of his service games, and thus ranks a lowly No. 59 on the tour in that department? Brazils Thomaz Bellucci.Oh, and former US Open champion Samantha Stosur has quietly snuck into second place (behind Jelena Ostapenko) as the most prolific double-faulter (218 compared to Ostapenkos 235) on the WTA Tour.How soon they forgetWas any recent No. 1 better than Rafael Nadal at his best? Its an interesting question that will never be satisfactorily answered by statistics. The ATP has a relatively new Under Pressure rating, which is calculated by adding the percentage of break points converted and saved, percentage of tie-breaks won and percentage of deciding sets won.The ATP applied that formula to every year-end No. 1 since 1991 in an effort to quantify who had the most impressive year. Nadal scored 281.5 for his performance in 2013. Thats just better than the 275.2 Roger Federer tallied in 2006, but loads better than the 223.5 earned by vintage Pete Sampras, in 1995. Oddly enough, top-ranked Djokovics epic 2011 rated only a 251.7. http://www.ravensrookiestore.com/Ravens-Terrell-Suggs-Jersey/ . Colin Wilson had two goals and an assist, and Mike Fisher scored a goal and helped set up two others in the Predators 6-4 victory over the Red Wings on Monday night. http://www.ravensrookiestore.com/Ravens-Kenneth-Dixon-Jersey/ .C. -- Chris Thorburn thinks one of the reasons the Winnipeg Jets have been successful under new coach Paul Maurice is that theyre playing together as a team. http://www.ravensrookiestore.com/Ravens-Ray-Lewis-Jersey/ . -- An ugly goal by Nick Bonino helped the Anaheim Ducks overcome the defensive-minded Phoenix Coyotes on a night when their ragged power play continued to struggle. KENT, Ohio -- Kent States players made their home opener memorable, and it had little to do with winning.In a sign of unity they hope catches on, the Golden Flashes invited fans onto the court to stand with them during the national anthem before Wednesday nights game against Mississippi Valley State.Moments before tip-off, Kent States players went into the crowd and each of them asked a fan of a different race to join them while the schools Flasher Brass pep band performed the anthem.We understand all of the issues going on in our world, sophomore point guard Jalen Avery said. In these times, we felt it was important to show a sign of unity in our community. Our meaning behind it was to let everybody aware of all the things that are going on in our country know that we wanted to make a stand for unity. That was basically our symbol, and we wanted to treat everybody as one.Kent State coach Rob Senderoff said the players approached the coaching staff with the idea.It takes courage for our players to make a statement like this, and I believe iit is a representation of the unity in our campus community, Senderoff said. http://www.ravensrookiestore.com/Ravens-Kamalei-Correa-Jersey/. Theres a lot of people protesting the national anthem, or protesting the election, or religion. You see all of that nationally, and our guys wanted to make a statement. To me, it was a tremendously positive statement. Hopefully everybody can recognize that. I have a lot of African-American players on my team, and they have faced discrimination because of the color of their skin.The statement they wanted to make was that `I am greater than that. Im a person. We are all people, and we are going to try and bring some unity here on campus. I think they made a positive statement with what they did.One of those asked to join the players, was Kent State president Beverly Warren.The team plans to continue to have fans on the court for every home game at the M.A.C. Center this season.Kent State defeated Mississippi Valley State 93-63.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Rod Carew Jersey . -- One day after saying quarterback Alex Smith was pulled from a game because of a suspected concussion, the Kansas City Chiefs indicated on Monday that they dont believe he did suffer any head trauma.Thats what an unaffiliated [neurological consultant] believes, thats what [team doctor Mike] Monaco believes, thats what I believe now, trainer Rick Burkholder said Monday. Hes been absolutely asymptomatic.Burkholder said the Chiefs had determined during the second half of their 30-14 win over the Indianapolis Colts that Smith wouldnt return to the game, but only because he was being tested for a concussion.The message relayed to the media covering the game in Indianapolis at the time was that Smith wouldnt return because he had indeed suffered a concussion.He was in the middle of the concussion protocol, but we werent going to return him in the same game, Burkholder said.Burkholder said the Chiefs will move cautiously with Smith, even though they suspect he doesnt have a concussion. Smith will be examined by an independent neurologist in Kansas City, but he could be on the field with the Chiefs on Wednesday when they begin their practice week and could play Sunday when the Chiefs face the Jacksonville Jaguars at Arrowhead Stadium.We will go through the return-to-play protocol and see where hes at, Burkholder said. Although we dont think he has a concussion, were going to be cautious and were going to take him through all those steps before we put him back on the field just to be sure were not missing anything.Smith was taken from the game twice when the Chiefs suspected he might have a concussion, once in the first quarter and once in the third. He didnt return to the game after the second incident.Smith was given a brief test for a concussion along the sideline each time. Burkholder said Smith twice passed those exams, which includes testing for memory, balance and other concussion symptoms.Smith was still sent to the locker room for more evaluation. Burkholder said that was in part because Smith staggered and appeared woozy after each of the plays in question.Were not absolutely sure why he had those events, and certainly the independent [neurologist] could shed some light on that for us, Burkholder said. Were still in that process, and we also want to see whether exercise takes him back into a situation where he gets a little staggered.Smith has a laceration on his right ear from the first hit that knocked him out of the game, and Burkholder said that could be affecting Smiths balance. Kirby Puckett Jersey . The Canadian squad, skipped by Jennifer Jones of Winnipeg, got on the board first with two in the second end, and followed that with two more apiece in the fourth and sixth ends.

According the Toronto Star, a knee injury will keep Sundin out of the lineup, which includes former teammates Gary Roberts, Darcy Tucker, Tie Domi and Curtis Joseph. http://www.twinsrookiestore.com/Twins-Brian-Dozier-Kids-Jersey/ . Colin Wilson had two goals and an assist, and Mike Fisher scored a goal and helped set up two others in the Predators 6-4 victory over the Red Wings on Monday night. NORTON, Mass. -- In the 477 days between Rory McIlroys last PGA Tour victory and his ultra-impressive, come-from-behind triumph at the Deutsche Bank Championship on Monday afternoon, hes been the subject of massive critical analysis.Hes been condemned for too few title contentions and too many back-door top-10s. Blasted for working out too much. Chided for not caring enough about his game -- or possibly caring too much. Razzed for not supporting the Olympics and castigated for comments about growing the game.Ask him which criticism is most unfair and he points to the one about his workout regimen, but quickly concedes that any judgment of his on-course performance is fair game.I dont know if any criticism is unfair, McIlroy said after a final-round 65 lifted him from a 6-stroke deficit to a 2-stroke victory. With my game, the critics and the analysts and everyone that are out there, theyre educated about golf, so they for the most part know what theyre talking about. A criticism of my golf game, I take it, and I know what I need to work on -- and sometimes those people point out the obvious.The obvious in this case was so obvious that he didnt even need to mention it. Thats because all of those criticisms put together didnt equal the negative reviews about his putting.And for good reason.By his own admission, McIlroys putting has largely been abysmal this year. If you dont believe him, just take a look at his PGA Tour ranks: Entering this week, he was 117th in putts per round, 130th in strokes gained putting, 165th in total putting, 189th in putting inside 10 feet and 193rd in three-putt avoidance.Most players would lose their cards with these numbers. McIlroy is such a good ball striker that he was simply losing tournaments.Just a week ago, he did something about it. He switched from a Nike putter to a Scotty Cameron mallet-style model and formalized a working relationship with putting guru Phil Kenyon, who has previously helped the likes of Henrik Stenson and Louis Oosthuizen.Something clicked. Check that: Everything clicked.At TPC Boston, McIlroys putting stats were a complete turnaround. He finished seventh in strokes gained putting and first in putting average, and he endured just a lone three-putt all week.To paraphrase Happy Gilmore: Somebody learned how to putt -- uh-oh.Its just incredible, this game, how quickly things can change and how quickly things can turn around, he explained. Its been a great lesson for me this week not to get down on myself, to stay patient.Thoose words illustrated not only his reversal on the greens but also an epic bounce-back after an inauspicious beginning to the tournament. Michael Pineda Jersey. .Through his opening three holes on Friday morning, McIlroy was already 4 over par -- just two spots away from last place on the leaderboard. He played the remaining 15 holes in 4 under and then posted progressive scores of 67-66-65, all while pointing to that Friday comeback as the key component.I thought its a great opportunity being 4 over through three holes to do something that I had never done before, to be in that position and go on and win a golf tournament, he said. I think even finishing in the top 10 after that start on Friday would have been a very respectable result, but to be sitting up here and have won the tournament, Im very proud of myself for that.McIlroy cited an ever-increasing maturity level and a reluctance to get down on himself as the reasons for this weeks win. That much is true, but so is this: Just a few weeks ago, he wouldnt have been able to make this comeback because he wasnt putting well enough.Thats right. The guy who ranked so far down the list on putting ranks this season won because of his putting this week.His world-class peers took notice, too.Adam Scott: Hes remarkable because hes a bit Teflon-coated, Rory. He gets criticized a lot, everything analyzed, and hes very patient, I think, with it all. To me, it looks like he hasnt got so frustrated this year -- hes just kept doing his thing. And this week hes kind of found some magic in his fingers or something and hes holing everything.Jordan Spieth: The last two weeks, hes been on the practice green every time Ive been there, and before and after. I feel like I work hard on my putting, and hes worked as hard as anybody in the past two weeks on his putting. Its just a little bit of confidence. I mean, it seems to be working for him now.Jason Day: Over the last few days, hes obviously playing pretty well. Its been tough conditions and he thrives under these conditions with his ball striking. And if he gets hot on the greens...Day didnt need to finish that sentence.If McIlroy gets hot with his putting, this is exactly what happens: He finishes the day clutching a big trophy.That much is obvious, just as obvious as the season-long criticism about his putting -- criticism that will disappear after his long-awaited triumph.

Steven Gerrard is not ready to make any decisions on his retirement from football, and is instead focused on lifting the MLS Cup at the end of the season. Manchester United Jerseys . Gerrard, 35, joined LA Galaxy on an 18-month contract last summer shortly after playing his final game for Liverpool, where he made over 500 appearances.A winner of two FA Cups, three League Cups and a Champions League in his time on Merseyside, but his half-season with the Galaxy ended without a trophy. Gerrard got two goals and three assists in 13 appearances, and the Galaxy, who have won the MLS Cup three times in the last five years, crashed out at the first knockout round of the play-offs with a 3-2 defeat against Seattle Sounders.But with the 2016 season set to kick off on Sunday, Gerrard believes it will be a successful year personally if he can win MLS biggest prize.Win the MLS Cup or go close [is the aim], he told Sky Sports. Last year we went out of the first round of the play-offs, the wheels fell off towards the end of the league campaign. We conceded too many goals and we got a really tricky away tie against Seattle in the play-offs.We need to position ourselves better in the league before it goes to the play-offs then its a bit of a lottery. We need to perform and be consistent in knock-out competition. Gerrard has enjoyed a full pre-season with LA Galaxy Like other stars to have passed through MLS before him, Gerrard admits hes been surprised by the standard of Major League Soccer since arriving in the States.The level is certainly a lot better than people think, Gerrard added. You have an opinion when you watch this game on the eye and its very competitive. Theres some good players in the league, good managers and good tactics.Ive sampled different training sessions at LA Galaxy that Ive never done before so maybe one day I can use different bits and bobs that Ive learnt over here. The 2016 MLS season kicks off this Sunday with Chicago Fire v New York City and Portland Timbers v Columbus Crew live on Sky Sports 1 from 7:05pm Gerrard acknowledges he underestimated the challenges posed by MLS, such as the travel and playing regularly at differing altitude, but says the experience of his first term stands him in good stead.There were some shocks and surprises when you go away on the road, Gerrard said.The altitude, the humidity, the length of travel, and obviously getting used to team-mates and new tactics, its a different way of playing. Ill certainly be better for the highs and lows of last season. MLS: Five Brits to watch The British influence keeps growing in Major League Soccer And with an eye on the near future, the former Liverpool captain says he has been enjoying the experience.Im glad Ive done it, Gerrard added. The experience has been good but Ill obviously judge it come the end of the season when Ive done a full season.Hopefully Ill go home with a trophy. It just made sense to me being at Liverpool for that amount of time it was important for me to come out, have a look in and see whats happening at Liverpool.[I get to] sample a different lifestyle and a different life experience. LA Galaxy last won MLS Cup in 2014 Gerrard insists he is in a good place physically heading into his 19th full season as a senior professional, and is not pressed to make a decision on retirement.I dont want to shut any doors and I dont want to make any rash decisions because where I sit now I still feel healthy, Gerrard said.I still feel fit, I still feel like I could play in most levels in the game so where I sit now Im not ready to retire. Will I be ready in 10/11 months time? Well have to wait and see.MLS returns to Sky Sports on Sunday March 6 when Chicago Fire face New York City FC from 7pm and Portland Timbers host Columbus Crew.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Simone Biles starts each year by pulling out a notebook to write down her goals for the next 12 months. Ryan Hartman Jersey . When 2016 dawned, for once she didnt get too specific.Make the Olympic team. Thats it. Better to just leave things vague.Besides, who could have written this? Eight days. Five medals. Four of them gold. The last one draped over her neck following one final show-stopping floor exercise on Tuesday.Whether Biles will leave the games as the best gymnast of all time is up for debate, a topic she will happily leave to others.I would never rank myself, Biles said. Its weird.Shed rather let her envelope-pushing performance at Rio Olympic Arena do the talking. Her final act was perhaps her greatest. On legs she joked felt like rocks, Biles put together 90 seconds of effortless joy. Her ceiling scraping tumbling and charismatic dancing -- set to Brazilian-themed music designed for exactly this moment -- ended with her bouncing off the mat before sprinting to the awaiting arms of longtime coach Aimee Boorman.The two embraced, their journey that began when Biles was 6 ending -- at least for now -- with history. Biles became the fifth female gymnast to win four golds at a single Olympic meet and the fourth to win them on the traditional events.Throw in the bronze Biles earned on balance beam Monday and the 19-year-old will have a lengthy checklist when she gets to customs on her way home to Texas.I think that she was really consistent, that was a big thing for her, Boorman said. That was the goal. Not to come in and win five golds but to show what she trained.As for what comes next -- besides the stardom that awaits back in the U.S. -- Biles is unsure. Shed like to go have a normal life for a bit, at least as normal as it can be when she gets back to suburban Houston. Turning one of the biggest sporting events in the world into your personal showcase has a way of changing things.Its kind of scary with this public eye being on me all the time, Biles said. Its rewarding but I think well get used to it.If she needs advice, she doesnt have to look far. All she has to do is ask good friend and Final Five teammate Aly Raisman. The 22-year-old team captain picked up her third medal in Brazil and sixth overall with silver on floor, a moment she wasnt sure would arrive when she began her methodical comeback two years ago.This time was harder than 2012, the training part of it, Raisman said. It was kind of hard to top (2012). Its nice that it was all worth it.Raismans six medals are the second-most by an American female gymnast at the Olympics. The nine medals the U.S. women captured in Rio are the programs most in an Olympic meet, a fitting send off for retiring national team coordinator Martha Karolyi.Husband Bela at her side in the stands, Karolyi fought back tears as the gymnasts she called the Final Two leave little doubt as to the widening canyon between the Americans and the rest of the world. Five days after going 1-2 in the all-around, Biles and Raisman did it again with their unparalleled floor routines that including some of the most difficult passes the sport has ever seen.Im so proud of these girls, said Karolyi, who is stepping down later this month. Im going out very happy, very satisfied.Whether Raisman is going to join Karolyi in retirement is uncertain. Raisman never thought anything could top London. Yet there she was waving to the crowd on Tuesday afternoon, a gesture that doesnt mean goodbye. Maybe it was the adrenaline, but for now Tokyo 2020 remains in play.Maybe Im getting better with age, she said.For the first time in Rio, the U.S. mens team managed to keep pace with the women thanks to Danell Leyva. A bronze medalist in the all-around in London, Leyva won silver on high bar and parallel bars within 90 minutes of each other. Heady territory considering Leyva only made the Olympic team after John Orozco went down with a knee injury last month. After finishing a disappointing fifth in team finals, the American men finished with three medals overall after Alex Naddour took bronze on pommel horse.This was absolutely redemption, not only for me but for the team as well, Leyva said.Mens all-around silver medalist Oleg Verniaiev of Ukraine took gold on parallel bars, followed by Leyva and David Belyavskiy of Russia. Fabian Hambuechen of Germany finally reached the top step of the podium in the Olympics by claiming the high bar title. A bronze medalist in Beijing and a silver medalist in London, Hambuechens score of 15.766 was clear of Leyvas 15.500. Nile Wilson of Great Britain earned bronze.Ultimately though, these games belonged to Biles, who planned to celebrate with pizza and some time off. After that, who knows?Its pretty insane what Ive accomplished in my first Olympics, she said. I dont know. Its crazy.Unforgettable too. Jonathan Toews Jersey . Hamelin, who triumphed in the 500 on Saturday, edged out Victor An of Russia by 0.021 seconds to maintain his lead in the World Cup standings. Russias Vladimir Grigorev was third. In the relay, Canada took control six laps from the finish line to beat Russia and the Netherlands. Richard Panik Jersey . The Celtics closed out their first preseason under Stevens on Wednesday night with a 101-97 victory over the Brooklyn Nets, who rested a lot of their lineup including former Celtics Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. http://www.blackhawksauthority.com/authentic-jeremy-roenick-blackhawks-jersey/ .

AMES, Iowa -- Even as the losses mount at Iowa State, Allen Lazards numbers keep climbing. Glen Perkins Jersey .The junior wide receiver was the No. 1 recruit during the seven-year tenure of former coach Paul Rhoads, and hes living up to the billing for first-year coach Matt Campbell.The Cyclones might be 1-8, but its certainly not because Lazard has failed at his job.If you came to practice and watched the last three weeks of practice -- Tuesday and Wednesday and Thursday -- Allen is as locked in as anybody on our football team, Campbell said Monday. Thats what I want for Allen because in my humble opinion, I think Allen has a chance to be one of the best players in college football.Lazard is entirely comfortable hearing that from his coach because the standout from suburban Des Moines wants the same thing.I think very highly of myself, he said. I think I still have a lot of room to grow. I havent reached my full potential this year, I dont think, but I think I can do a lot of special things out there.He already has.Lazard leads the team in receiving (48 catches), yards (658) and touchdown catches (five) and is steadily climbing the schools career records list. He has caught a pass in all 32 games he has played and now ranks fifth in career receptions (145) and TD catches (14) and third in receiving yards (2,059).If he stays another year -- and he says he will -- Lazard almost assuredly would pass Todd Blythe (176) as the career receptions leader and would have a shot at Blythes 3,096 receiving yards. Blythes 31 career TD receptions would be out of reach without a monster, injury-free senior season, but who knows?He keeps getting better separation from defensive backs. At 6-feet-5 and 223 pounds, he has always been an enticing target.Hes one of those guys that in any situation, you can throw him the ball, quarterback Joel Lanning said. If hes double-covered or whatever, if you just give him a chance to catch it, hes more than likely going to catch it. Hes one of those guys that just wants the ball all the time.A toe injury slowed Lazard at midseason and his performance suffered. He couldnt plant and drive off on that foot and during one three-game stretch, he managed only nine catches for 88 yards. His longest play in that time covered a mere 17 yards.It was hard just because I would sit there during practice and watch my teammates, he said. Thats probably the hardest part, knowing you cant go out there and practice because you physically cant. Then have to try to turn it on on Saturday and youre not really in shape at all and you really havent gotten the reps and the timing down. It really hurts you in that aspect.Then the injury healed and his production took off. His numbers for the last four games: 27 catches, 330 yards, three touchdowns.All of a sudden he gets a chance to catch his breath and get healthy, Campbell said. I think youre starting to see the byproduct. In critical situations, hes making those plays.Lazard has thrived despite working with a revolving door of quarterbacks. He has caught passes from four different quarterbacks in less than three full seasons and even hauled in a touchdown pass from a wide receiver on a trick play.They were all right-handed, so that helps, he said. Its not a different spin. I had a left-handed quarterback in high school. For the most part, its not really different, just the trajectory of the ball is a little bit different, especially on deep balls. The deep balls different just because some throw it flatter and harder and some just kind of throw it up there. Its something youve got to get used to, I guess.It would seem that he has adjusted quite well. Logan Morrison Jersey . Burke is expected to miss two to three months after breaking a finger in the teams third preseason game. Tinsley, a 10-year veteran, spent the last two seasons in Utah, where the point guard averaged 3. Custom Minnesota Twins Jerseys .com) - Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Roger Federer were easy first-round winners Tuesday at the Australian Open. http://www.twinsrookiestore.com/Twins-Ervin-Santana-Kids-Jersey/ . -- Most satisfying to Russ Smith about No. MADRID -- Spain defender Jordi Alba has been dropped from the teams squad because of a muscle injury sustained in the World Cup qualifier against Italy.The Spanish soccer federation says he will be replaced by Arsenal defender Ignacio Nacho Monreal.Albas left leg injury was confirmed Friday and he will not travel with the rest of the team for Sundays game at Albania.The Barcelona player was substituted in the 22nd mminute of Spains 1-1 draw against Italy in Turin on Thursday.
