NEW YORK -- The San Francisco Giants headed into the All-Star break a major league-best 57-33. Ivan Nova Jersey .They started the second half by skidding on a 1-7 trip to San Diego, Boston and New York that culminated in a 5-2 loss Sunday to the Yankees.Im very excited about to get home, Jeff Samardzija said after dropping to 1-2 with a 7.29 ERA and nine home runs allowed in his last six starts. Obviously, this road trip didnt go the way we wanted it to, but you learn from this. We got some guys who got some playing time. And you use this for the future. The season isnt always going to go the way you want it to from start to finish. So, were going to go home and regroup and put this behind us.Right fielder Hunter Pence (hamstring), second baseman Joe Panik (concussion) and third baseman Matt Duffy (strained Achilles tendon) are sidelined, first baseman Brandon Belt was 2 for 33 (.061) on the trip and shortstop Brandon Crawford 6 for 33 (.182) with no RBI.We had some guys cold with the bat, manager Bruce Bochy said. Well go as they go.San Francisco was 1 for 8 with runners in scoring position Sunday, leaving the NL West leader at 9 for 72 (.125) following the break.Ive got to find the approach to get back on track, Belt said. I feel like a lot of these losses that weve had are on me. Ive had plenty of chances to drive in runs, didnt get the job done.San Franciscos lineup included rookie Mac Williamson in right, Ramiro Pena at second and Conor Gillaspie at third. Rookie Trevor Brown caught to give Buster Posey a day at designated hitter after Saturdays 12-inning win.A makeshift batting order also will be used when the Giants open a homestand Monday against Cincinnati, last in the NL Central at 38-60.You obviously see what happens with the hole in the lineup. Three middle guys arent in the middle of the lineup, Belt said. Obviously, we havent done well this road trip, myself especially. But I dont think the reason is because were putting too much pressure on ourselves. Were just all slumping at the same time.Samardzija (9-6) gave up five runs and eight hits in 5 2/3 innings. He allowed home runs to Carlos Beltran in the first and Mark Teixeira in the second, raising his season total to 19, as New York built a 2-0 lead.New York chased Samardzija in the sixth, when Jacoby Ellsbury grounded into a run-scoring double play, Starlin Castro singled in a run and Didi Gregorius hit an RBI double.Hed make a mistake, and they didnt miss it. Bochy said. But really, he was pitching as well as Ive seen him for three innings. It just got away from him.Nathan Eovaldi (9-6) pitched shutout ball into the seventh. With the Yankees No Runs DMC trio unavailable after two days of heavy use, Chasen Shreve came in and loaded the bases with a walk to Belt, and Posey poked an opposite-field, two-run single to right against Chad Green, who retired Brandon Crawford on a groundout.New York turned a spectacular 4-1-5 inning-ending double play in the eighth. Pena grounded past a diving Teixeira at first but Castro slid on his stomach to come up with the ball on the outfield grass between first and second, sat up and threw to Green covering first. The pitcher then threw to third, where Chase Headley tagged a sliding Williamson.Youve got to play according to the scoreboard, Bochy said. He plays all out. We love his energy and his enthusiasm, but we just cant get thrown out there three runs down with two out.THE OLD DAYSOn a sunny afternoon with a 93-degree game-time temperature, Bochy remembered how players used to deal with heat during his playing days.We wore cabbage leafs in our hat, and some guys put them in your shoes. Its a leaf and you put it right in your hat, and it keeps your head cool, he said. I havent seen that since, I want to say probably `79 or `80. Philadelphia. I remember wearing them there, on the turf.TRAINERS ROOMGiants: Pence was 1 for 3 with an RBI single and grounded into a double play in the first game of Triple-A Sacramentos doubleheader Sunday. ... Panik hasnt played for the Giants since June 27 and has not been on the field for Sacramento since appearances Tuesday and Wednesday. Hes doing all baseball activities, Bochy said. He just feels like its cleared up, so it looks like weve turned the corner on him.UP NEXTGiants: RHP Jake Peavy (5-8) starts Monday for the Giants and Anthony DeSclafani (5-0) for Cincinnati. Peavy is 7-1 in 13 starts against the Reds. Tyler Glasnow Jersey . -- Canadian Andrew Wiggins got the ball on the wing, made a nifty spin move and then let go with a soft floater from about 10 feet that swished through the net in Allen Fieldhouse. Chad Kuhl Jersey . But by the time the game started, the Toronto Raptors forward felt even worse. And, for three quarters, it showed as Gay shot a woeful three-for-13 from the field. http://www.piratesrookiestore.com/Pirates-Colin-Moran-Kids-Jersey/ . With Parker having a quiet game for once, Nicolas Batum and Boris Diaw provided the scoring as France won its first major basketball title by beating Lithuania 80-66 on Sunday. It was a victory that ended a decade of frustration for Parker and a talented French generation, which lost the final against Spain two years ago and took bronze in 2005. YPSILANTI, Mich. -- Jordan Huff scored on a 2-yard run in overtime for his third touchdown of the game and Northern Illinois then stopped Eastern Michigan on downs for a 31-24 victory Wednesday night.The Eagles (6-5, 3-4 Mid-American), hoping to solidify their chances at ending a 29-year bowl-game drought, drove to NIUs 7 in the final minute of regulation but had to settle for Paul Fricanos 24-yard field goal.The Huskies (4-7, 4-3) took six plays to score in overtime then held the Eagles to 9 yards on their possession.Trailing 21-0 at halftime, the Huskies took a 224-21 lead on Huffs 27-yard run with 13:45 left in the final quarter. Willie Stargell Jersey. . Huff, who entered with just one TD on the season, had a 60-yard score in the third and finished with a career-high 173 yards on 23 carries.Ian Eriksen rushed for a career-best 171 yards and two TDs for Eastern Michigan.Northern Illinois has won 15 of the last 16 meetings between the MAC West schools -- with the Eagles last win in the series coming in 2007.

Melbourne Victory could face the same fate as fellow A-League bad boys Western Sydney Wanderers after supporters let off a flare in Saturday nights Melbourne derby. Kurt Suzuki Jersey .Active supporters ripped the flare in response to Luke Brattans goal for Melbourne City in the second half of their 4-1 drubbing to Melbourne City.Both Victory and Wanderers - whose supporters let off two flares in last weekends Sydney derby - were placed on notice by FFA to improve fan behaviour.The two clubs were handed fines and a suspended three-point deduction for bad supporter behaviour in February this year.The Wanderers had their probation period extended by FFA in response to the Sydney derby last week, and it remains to be seen whether Victory will suffer the same fate.Despite repeated warnings from police and clubs that fans behave, four supporters were arrested and 13 evicted from Melbournes Etihad Stadium.There were several incidents of concern, police spokeswoman Anthoula Moutis said.One flare was released inside the stadium, another outside before the match began and two more after the game.The person who lit the flare inside the stadium was identified and will face charges, she told AAP on Sunday.Police were happy with the overall behaviour of the crowd at tonights match, however were disappointed by the behaviour of a few.Three others were arrested in relation to assault, criminal damage and hindering police offences.Police say the 13 evicted from the match was because of drunk and anti-social behaviour.Players from both teams warned spectators that flares were damaging the game in a video message shown on the big screens before kick-off and at halftime. Dale Murphy Jersey . The 26-year-old Ireland striker, who has four goals this season, has signed a three-and-a-half year contract with his new club. Brandon McCarthy Jersey . 10 Texas A&Ms offence dominated as usual against SMU. http://www.thebravesteamshop.com/Braves-Mike-Foltynewicz-Kids-Jersey/ . The third-ranked Ivanovic, who won the event in 2008 and 10, served five aces and broke Wickmayer, also a former winner in 2009, five times. "The result looked easier than it really was," Ivanovic said. DENVER -- Even as Masai Ujiri accepted the NBAs executive of the year trophy from club President Josh Kroenke on Thursday, the Denver Nuggets general manager said he would have given it up gladly in exchange for a deep playoff run. "Its a little bittersweet for me," Ujiri said at a news conference a day after the Nuggets George Karl took the trophy for coach of the year. "I would trade that to be playing right now." Ujiri, the first African-born GM in major American sports, built the Nuggets team that won an NBA franchise-record 57 games and went an NBA-best 38-3 at home before going down in the first round. "There was an unbelievable energy in this city and thats why we had kind of a little disappointment when we lost to the Golden State Warriors, whos not such a bad team from what they are doing right now," Ujiri said. "We hope to kick their butts next year but theyre not too bad right now. We understand we are a growing team. We knew there were going to be pains. This is part of the process and well continue to grow." Ujiri assembled a team that had nine players average between 8 and 16.7 points and the city, the Nuggets fans and the organization embraced the clubs persona as a team without a superstar that nevertheless got the job done. Until the third-seeded Nuggets were beaten in six games by the sixth-seeded Warriors, led by their fast-rising star, Stephen Curry. Ujiri said that after the Nuggets first-round exit, his disappointment was so keen he didnt even watch basketball for several days. He finally tuned in Wednesday night to watch an NBA playoff game and came to the office Thursday recharged, spoiling to get started on next season. "Weve got work to do," he said. "I think were beginning to get over our emotional state. You know what? You have to move on." Ujiri said hes confident his deal, which expires in the summer, will be renewed or extended. "Josh and I continue to have conversations. Im very positive that things will work out," he said. And he said a top off-season priority will be to lock up Andre Iguodala with a long-term deal. "Hes a great kid and I think hes great for our basketball team," Ujiri said. "Theres a lot he brings to our program and were proud of him and the year he had. We hope we auditioned ourselves well for him. Its going to be his decision, but well do everything on our part as an oorganization. Tom Glavine Jersey. . We want him back." He vowed the Nuggets will be back for another playoff run next season. "Our goal is to be better and to be better in the playoffs, and were going to do everything we can to get there," he said. Ujiri totalled 59 points and received eight first-place votes from a panel of his fellow team basketball executives throughout the league. The Los Angeles Clippers Gary Sacks finished second with 28 points (three first-place votes) and the Houston Rockets Daryl Morey and the New York Knicks Glen Grunwald finished tied for third with 25 points (four first-place votes). Ujiri, who spent three years with the Toronto Raptors before joining the Nuggets, was named to his current position on Aug. 27, 2010. He worked for the Nuggets organization as a scout from 2003-07, and served as the teams director of international scouting during the 2006-07 season. Ujiris predecessor, Mark Warkentien, won the honour in 2009. Denvers Vince Boryla also won the award in 1984-85.   "Hes a great kid and I think hes great for our basketball team," Ujiri said.

Dwyane Wade scored 30 points and had a clutch steal and dunk in overtime as the Miami Heat evened their second-round NBA play-off series with a 94-87 win over the Toronto Raptors. Ivan Rakitic Jersey . The Heat stepped it up in overtime as Joe Johnson blocked two shots, Justise Winslow produced a tip-in basket and Goran Dragic had a key layup for Miami, who evened the best-of-seven series at two games each. Game five is Wednesday in Toronto where Wade will surely be a target after Toronto fans accused the Chicago, Illinois native of being disrespectful in game three for shooting baskets during the playing of the Canadian national anthem.Wade heard cheers instead of boos on Monday as he tied the score with 12 seconds left by driving to the rim for a basket. Toronto had a chance to ice the win in regulation but Cory Joseph missed a 15-foot jump shot at the buzzer in front of a crowd of 19,600 fans at Miamis AmericanAirlines Arena.Toronto, who played without injured centre Jonas Valanciunas, got scoring from some unexpected sources - 14 points each from DeMarre Carroll and Joseph.Bismack Biyombo started in place of Valanciunas and tallied a double-double with 13 points and 13 rebounds. Valanciunas is out for the rest of the series.But Torontos starting guards were largely ineffective. Kyle Lowry had 10 points and DeMar DeRozan, who was playing with a jammed right thumb, had nine points.Lowry fouled out with 1:58 left in the fourth quarter after he was called for an offensive infraction.Heat big man Hassan Whiteside also skipped Mondays game with a knee injury. His status for game five is uncertain.Veteran Amare Stoudemire started in place of Whiteside. Ousmane Dembele Jersey .C. -- Rodney Hood connected from all over the court while freshman Jabari Parker was busy swatting shots and scoring in transition. Xavi Hernandez Jersey . Each of Houstons starters scored in double figures as the Rockets improved to 2-0 against the Spurs this season, with both victories coming on the road. They also moved within 3 1/2 games of San Antonio (22-7) for the lead the Southwest Division. http://www.fcbarcelonapro.com/ . If ever they start actually putting pictures beside words in the dictionary, the Blue Jays left-handers mug will appear beside “Consistency. ANAHEIM, Calif. -- After going winless for two months, Jhoulys Chacin decided to think like a reliever.Chacin (4-8) allowed six hits over 5 2/3 innings, struck out four and walked one in his first scoreless start since April 12 for Atlanta, leading the Los Angeles Angels over the New York Yankees 2-0 Sunday.It felt good, not just for me, but for the team too, Chacin said. I wasnt trying to do too much. I was just trying to throw strikes.Albert Pujols had three hits and scored twice on singles by Andrelton Simmons. That was enough offense for Chacin, who had been 0-4 in five starts and eight relief appearances since beating Minnesota on June 14.Making his third start since rejoining the rotation, Chacin used a relaxed bullpen mentality.I thought he showed really good stuff, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. He had good command of both his breaking pitches -- his slider and his curveball. He didnt make many mistakes with them. And when we needed him to, he found some velocity and some good movement on his fastball.Deolis Guerra, JC Ramirez and Fernando Salas followed with hitless relief. Salas pitched a perfect ninth for his fourth save.After winning the first two games of the series, New York entered four games over .500 at 63-59 but for the fourth time failed to move five games over.Chad Green (2-3) allowed one run and five hits in six innings, which matched his big league high. He struck out 11 in six scoreless innings against Toronto on Monday when he rejoined the rotation.He didnt have his cutter today, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. But he still found a way to get through it all and give up one run. He was a little bit different today, but the good thing was that he found a way to get through it.Pujols had his seventh three-hit game this year. Aggressive base-running by allowed him to score from second base on Simmons first single. Pujols went from first to third on C.J. Crons single and scored on came home on Simmons two-out ground single just beyond the reach of second baseman Starlin Castro. Paco Alcacer Jersey. Something thats lost in everything is Albert going first to third in the eighth inning, Scioscia said. That opened up a hole there at second base where Castro was playing.One night after tying former St. Louis teammate Mark McGwire for 10th on the career home run list at 583, Pujols nearly surpassed his close friend. Center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury made a leaping catch at the wall in the fifth to deny Pujols a two-run homer.New York was 1 for 7 with runners in scoring position. Mark Teixeira hit an inning-ending flyout to leave the bases loaded in the fourth. After the Yankees put two on with one out in the eighth, Ramirez struck out Didi Gregorius and retired Castro on a groundout.Our opportunities, we have to take advantage of them when we get them, Girardi said. We werent able to do that today.TRAINERS ROOMAngels: RHP Huston Street has gone to Texas to seek a second opinion on his injured right knee in Texas and may need offseason surgery. Scioscia said surgery likely would be minor and would take place in the offseason. Street was placed on the 15-day disabled list with right knee inflammation on Aug. 2.UP NEXTYankees: RHP Michael Pineda (6-10) will pitch on an extra day of rest Monday when the Yankees open a series at Seattle, his former team. Pineda pitched five scoreless innings against Toronto in his last outing and has won five of his last six starts.Angels: LHP Tyler Skaggs (1-2) starts Tuesday when the Angels open a three-game series at Toronto. In his third start following Tommy John surgery, Skaggs allowed four earned runs and six hit in 3 1/3 innings against Seattle on Wednesday.---This version has been corrected to show the Yankees entered Sunday at 63-59 and to fix the spelling of Didi Gregorius.

McKINNEY, Texas -- Rising construction costs have pushed the price tag for a high school stadium north of Dallas to a whopping $70 million. http://www.texansrookiestore.com/Texans-Jeff-Allen-Jersey/ .Voters in McKinney approved a bond package in May that set aside $50 million to build a 12,000-seat football stadium. Another $11 million previously was set aside for site preparation and other work.But The Dallas Morning News reports (http://bit.ly/2bq3atC ) officials recently learned that concrete prices have soared, driving up the cost. A decision to do additional road construction around the stadium also is contributing.The new construction estimate would appear to make the project the most expensive high school stadium ever built.The school district is one of the fastest-growing in Texas. Three high schools would use the stadium, and soccer and lacrosse teams also would compete there. http://www.texansrookiestore.com/Texans-Donta-Foreman-Jersey/ . "It doesnt get any better than that," Giambi said. "Im speechless." The Indians are roaring toward October. Giambi belted a two-run, pinch-hit homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give Cleveland a shocking 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, keeping the Indians up with the lead pack in the AL wild-card race. http://www.texansrookiestore.com/Texans-Ka-Imi-Fairbairn-Jersey/ . Sulaiman, 44, was chosen unanimously Tuesday in a vote by the leadership, the World Boxing Council said. Sulaiman becomes the sixth president of the organization. http://www.texansrookiestore.com/Texans-Tyler-Ervin-Jersey/ . The Olympic champion curler and TSN curling analyst immediately went online to look at the Halls long list of honoured members. Thats when the enormity of the honour sunk in. SAN FRANCISCO -- Just like two years ago as a wild card going to Pittsburgh, the San Francisco Giants will hit the road to begin what they believe can be another special, even-numbered-year postseason run.Even after the surprising second-half struggles and bullpen blunders that threatened their chances.The every-other-year Giants found their way back to the playoffs.San Francisco made it on the final day of the regular season, securing the second NL wild card with a 7-1 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday to complete a three-game sweep of their rival.We found a way to get back to where we need to be, ace left-hander Madison Bumgarner said. If we play like we have been the last three days, well be tough to beat.Denard Span hit a two-run triple among his three hits, and Buster Posey drove in three runs and had three hits as the club finished with its first four-game winning streak of the second half.San Francisco, which won World Series titles in 2010, 12 and 14, plays at the defending NL champion New York Mets on Wednesday night in the NL wild-card game, with the winner advancing to a Division Series against the Chicago Cubs. Bumgarner, the 2014 World Series MVP, will face Noah Syndergaard.Everybody realizes this is do-or-die. This is playoff time for us already, first baseman Brandon Belt said. We knew we needed to step our game up a little bit if we wanted to get in the postseason, and everybody did. ... I dont think it bothers anybody that we go on the road to win these games. Its actually a lot of fun. With Bumgarner on the mound, were going to have a good shot.Los Angeles, the NL West champion, plays Washington in the Division Series.Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully ended his 67-year career, calling his final game 80 years to the day after he fell in love with baseball while walking home from school.Midseason acquisition Matt Moore (6-5) allowed one run and three hits in eight innings as San Francisco (87-75) reached the playoffs for the fourth time in seven seasons. The Giants began the day one game ahead of St. Louis.The Dodgers got a scare when center fielder Joc Pederson came up slowly after diving and landing on his right shoulder trying for Brandon Crawfords RBI single in the eighth.San Franciscos fate came down to Game No. 162, just as it did in 2010. That year, Jonathan Sanchez pitched the Giants past San Diego for the division title. San Francisco went on to win the franchises first World Series since moving West in 1958.The Giants led the majors with a 57-33 record at the All-Star break. After an up-and-down secoond half and a series of bullpen meltdowns since the break, San Francisco delivered an impressive offensive performance against Kenta Maeda (16-11), who surrendered five runs and nine hits in 2 2/3 innings. http://www.texansrookiestore.com/Texans-Arian-Foster-Jersey/. This is what makes this as special as whats happened in the past, manager Bruce Bochy said. We had two different halves. If we wouldnt have gotten to the postseason, this would have been really hard to take, sitting in our position at the All-Star break.San Francisco has won 16 of its last 20 home meetings against the Dodgers.Third baseman Conor Gillaspie went over a railing and TV camera and into the photo well to snag Chase Utleys foul popup to begin the third.A superior catch, tumbling over the railing, declared 88-year-old Scully. Gillaspie refused to quit, eyes riveted on the ball ... alls well that ends well. The Giants are pumped.BAGS PACKEDThe Giants loaded their suitcases in the players parking lot early Sunday for the possibility of being gone a week.If they beat the Mets on Wednesday, they would head straight to Chicago to begin the best-of-five NL Division Series.Were hitting the road regardless, Bochy said. Its a case where youre definitely hitting the road, so get your packing done early. For a possible long trip, pretty much the message to everybody. How else would you think?SLUMPING DODGERSThe Dodgers lost five of six to end the season.I think weve covered everything this year with the 2016 Dodgers, manager Dave Roberts said beforehand. Just to see the way that our guys have kind of come together, its amazing to look back. ... To be in the position were in, its a good thing. Although weve lost three or four out of five, whatever it is, I still think the clubhouse, the mojo, the vide, energy, its still good.TRAINERS ROOMDodgers: Roberts confirmed Josh Reddick and Andre Ethier will be on the playoff roster, with Charlie Culberson still in the mix. The Dodgers hadnt determined how many pitchers they will carry.Giants: INF Eduardo Nunez missed his sixth straight game since straining his right hamstring last Sunday at San Diego. Hes unlikely to be available for the wild card round of the playoffs.UP NEXTDodgers: Los Angeles will work out on Tuesday at Dodger Stadium before flying to Washington on Wednesday ahead of Fridays NL Division Series Game 1 with the Nationals and having a session in the nations capital upon arrival.Giants: San Francisco will travel east on Monday morning.

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. Eduardo Escobar Jersey . 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.
