ATLANTA -- Its over. <a href="" target="_blank">cheap jerseys</a> . This time, the Indiana Pacers had a successful regular-season trip to Atlanta. David West scored 22 points, Paul George added 18 and the NBA-leading Pacers beat the Hawks 89-85 on Tuesday night. &quot;This has been a tough place for us, but I thought we came in with the right motivation tonight,&quot; West said. &quot;They blitzed us the last time we were down here.&quot; The Pacers most recent win in Atlanta came last May in the clinching Game 6 of their first-round playoff series. But Indiana (38-10) had dropped its last 12 regular-season games at the Hawks, including a 97-87 decision on Jan. 8. &quot;I dont have to answer questions about it anymore, so thats good,&quot; Indiana coach Frank Vogel said. &quot;Weve had some struggles here, but its not anything we were losing sleep over.&quot; Atlanta (25-22) failed to place a starter in double figures. It had won two straight and five of seven. Jeff Teague and Kyle Korver had nine points apiece for the Hawks. All-Star forward Paul Millsap went 2 for 11 from the field and finished with seven points. Teague made a 3-pointer to give Atlanta a 41-35 lead with 1:06 left in the second quarter, but the Hawks were outscored 38-16 over the next 17 minutes. Cartier Martins 3 cut Indianas lead to 86-84 with 14.9 seconds left. C.J. Watson and Danny Granger then combined for three free throws to help the Pacers hold on for the win. &quot;Offensively, it just wasnt one of our better nights,&quot; Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said. &quot;I think you have to give Indiana and their defence credit for that.&quot; Elton Brand, a 14-year veteran, had 12 points and was the only Hawk to score in double figures before Mike Scott scored nine of his 15 points in the fourth quarter. Scott said its no surprise that Atlantas offence couldnt get much going against a defence that holds opponents to just 90.2 points a game, lowest in the NBA. &quot;Theyre very good,&quot; Scott said. &quot;Thats why theyre the best team in the league defensively. We just missed open shots and couldnt get it in.&quot; The Pacers had not won in the regular season at Philips Arena since Dec. 22, 2006. &quot;I thought our resolve took over,&quot; West said. &quot;We were really precise with our movement and what we wanted to do. And we made plays when we needed to make plays.&quot; Ian Mahinmi gave Indiana its biggest lead of the game with a tip-in that made it 73-57 with 8:10 left. Pacers guard Lance Stephenson hit the floor hard on a layup at the 7:56 mark of the third, falling over Millsap in the lane and landing on his left shoulder and hip. Stephenson then converted the three-point play to make it 55-47, but he sat out the last 16 minutes. George stole the ball from rookie point guard Dennis Schroder late in the fourth and scored a fast-break layup to make it 82-74. &quot;Our guys buckled down on the defensive end,&quot; Vogel said. &quot;(Atlanta) made a few shots in the last minute or two, but for the most part we held a pretty explosive team down to 85 points. Thats a pretty good effort.&quot; NOTES: Indiana improved to 23-0 when holding opponents under 90 points. ... The Pacers are 10-3 since the loss in Atlanta on Jan. 8. ... Korver extended his NBA record to 116 consecutive games with a 3-pointer. Korver began his streak last season in Atlantas second game -- a win at Oklahoma City. ... The Pacers are 15-8 on the road, best in the Eastern Conference. <a href="" target="_blank">nfl jerseys china</a> .com) - Na Yeon Choi rallied to win the season-opening Coates Golf Championship on Saturday, but that didnt stop Lydia Ko from becoming the No. <a href="" target="_blank">cheap jerseys from china</a> . Ko, ranked No. 4 in the world, chose not to hold a formal news conference but released a short, scripted video in which she debates the merits of turning profession with the All Blacks rugby player Israel Dagg. <a href="" target="_blank"></a> . Brazil will announce a coach on Tuesday to succeed Luiz Felipe Scolari, who resigned after Brazil failed to win the World Cup -- eliminated in a humiliating 7-1 loss to Germany in the semifinals.CALGARY -- The Calgary Flames have competition in goal at training camp for the first time in years. The retirement of workhorse Miikka Kiprusoff left a void in net as the Flames prepare for the 2013-14 NHL season. Kiprusoff was Calgarys undisputed No. 1 after backstopping the Flames to the 2004 Stanley Cup final. The softspoken Finn played seven seasons of 70-plus games during his tenure in Calgary and was considered the backbone of the team. There isnt an obvious frontrunner to replace Kiprusoff. The battle to be the Flames starter is expected to be between Joey MacDonald of Pictou, N.S., Karri Ramo of Finland and Swiss native Reto Berra. Laurent Broissoit of Port Alberni, B.C., and another Finnish product, Joni Ortio, round out the five goalies at training camp, but lack the pro experience of the other three. Calgarys camp opened Wednesday with physical testing at the University of Calgary kinesiology lab. The first exhibition game is Saturday at the Saddledome against the Edmonton Oilers. Albertas NHL clubs will split their squads and host games in each city. The Flames open the regular season on the road Oct. 3 against the Washington Capitals. Their home opener is Oct. 6 versus the Vancouver Canucks. The Flames havent reached the playoffs in four seasons. The trading of longtime captain Jarome Iginla last season and the departure of Kiprusoff marks a new era for the hockey club. MacDonald was Kiprusoffs backup after the Flames plucked him off waivers in February. The 33-year-old is the most experienced goalie at camp with 122 NHL games split between Calgary, Detroit, Toronto, New York Islanders and Boston Bruins. MacDonalds record in the lockout-shortened season was 8-9-1 with a goals-against average of 2.87 and a save percentage of .902. &quot;Most years coming to camp, most teams have their clear-cut number one,&quot; MacDonald said. &quot;Being in Detroit for so long, you always had an old guy there that you had to battle. This year, its going to be exciting. The opportunity is there and its going to be an exciting team.&quot; He started three of Calgarys last four games of the season and signed a one-year contract in April that will pay him $925,000 this season. Ramo, 27, played 48 games for the Tampa Bay Lightning between 2006 and 2009 and also has American Hockey League experience. Hes spent the last four years in Russia in the KHL. &quot;Tampas testing was two days and now its one day so I guess the rules have changed a little bit,&quot; Ramo observed. <a href="" target="_blank">wholesale jerseys</a>. &quot;Now its about showing what you can do.&quot; The Flames picked up Ramos rights from the Montreal Canadiens in 2012 in the same deal that returned forward Mike Cammalleri to Calgary. Current Flames general manager Jay Feaster was the GM in Tampa Bay when the Lightning drafted Ramo in the sixth round in 2004. Feaster signed Ramo to a US$5.5-million, two-year contract in July. Kiprusoff is Ramos goaltending hero, although the Finns paths havent crossed much. Ramo has met him, but doesnt know if hell have a chance to ask Kiprusoffs advice about playing in Calgary. &quot;I really looked up to him when I was younger,&quot; Ramo said. &quot;He was one of the biggest idols for me. It would be really nice to play with him, but theres not that chance anymore.&quot; Berra, 26, fills the net at six foot four and 194 pounds. Calgary gained his rights in the deal that sent defenceman Jay Bouwmeester to St. Louis in April. The Flames then signed Berra to a one-year contract with a base salary of $765,000. All of Berras pro hockey experience has been in the Swiss leagues, so he travelled to the Flames summer development camp in July and returned to North America two weeks ago to learn the smaller ice. &quot;For sure, its a big difference, the ice in Europe and the ice here, but now I think Im good to go,&quot; Berra said. &quot;For a goalie its nice because you probably get more shots. &quot;Everything is close to the net and maybe they try to shoot more than anything. I like to have a lot of shots.&quot; Berras 29-save shutout lifted Switzerland to a 3-0 win over the United States in the semifinal of this years world championship in Stockholm. &quot;It was pretty big. It was really a good game for me,&quot; he recalled. Switzerland went with former NHL veteran Martin Gerber in the final against the host Swedes, who won the gold. Calgarys unsettled goaltending situation will make training camp feel different for the veteran Flames. &quot;That will be an adjustment,&quot; Cammalleri admitted. &quot;Thats the first thing that comes to my mind with Miikka. Not many goaltenders have backstopped a franchise that consistently for that long. &quot;I guess it adds to the whole idea of turning the page and new opportunities for different guys. As a team we want to be great defensively and our goaltender is going to be part of that so itll be some healthy competition back there.&quot; <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Wholesale Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Jerseys From China</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys</a> ' ' '

LONDON -- Fernando Torres made the most of a rare Chelsea start Tuesday by scoring one and setting up another in a 2-0 victory over third-tier club Swindon in the League Cup, while Manchester City and Tottenham advanced with stylish wins. <a href="" target="_blank">Authentic Richard Dent Jersey</a> . Torres slotted in from close range in the 29th minute, and then wriggled through the defence six minutes later before slipping the ball through to Ramires to dink the ball into the net. &quot;For the players who have not played in the last few matches it was good to play -- everyone is happy,&quot; Torres said. &quot;It is one step forward.&quot; It was the Spain strikers first domestic start since the opening game of the season more than a month ago. &quot;Hopefully Ill have more chances to play in the Premier League games,&quot; he said. Likewise for Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe after netting twice in a 4-0 victory over Aston Villa. In the other all-Premier League clashes, Evertons unbeaten start ended in a 2-1 loss at Fulham, and West Ham edged Cardiff 3-2 to reach the fourth round. All the topflight sides avoided embarrassment against lower-league opposition, Norwich winning 3-2 at Watford in extra time, Hull beating Huddersfield 1-0, Southampton overcoming Bristol City 2-0, and Sunderland ousting Peterborough by the same scoreline. Man City avenged last seasons FA Cup final loss to Wigan, by routing the second-tier side 5-0 with Stevan Jovetic scoring his first goals since joining from Fiorentina. Edin Dzeko opened the scoring the hosts by volleying into the net in the 33rd minute before Jovetic bundled in the second on the hour. Yaya Toure came off the bench to curl in a free kick from 20 yards -- his third such goal of the season -- and Jovetic netted again from close range in the 83rd after Ryan Shotton made a mess of a clearance. Jesus Navas rounded off the scoring three minutes later when he broke through and fired a low shot past goalkeeper Lee Nicholls. At Villa Park, 42-year-old American goalkeeper Brad Friedel had little to do on his return to his own club as the Tottenham attack shone. It took the visitors until the stroke of half time to go in front, with Defoe flicking a header over 21-year-old Villa goalkeeper Jed Steer after latching onto Lewis Holtbys chip. Holtby set up another four minutes into the second half, with Paulinho stabbing in his second goal in three days, having scored Tottenhams Premier League winner at Cardiff on Sunday. Winger Nacer Chadli blasted in his first goal since joining from FC Twente in the close season and Defoe wrapped up the victory in stoppage time by rounding the goalkeeper and putting the ball in the net for Tottenham. &quot;It was another super performance from Jermain Defoe, he showed great desire,&quot; Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas said. &quot;His performances have been excellent.&quot; Fulham fought back from 1-0 down to beat Everton. Darren Bent scored the winner in the 69th after Dimitar Berbatov cancelled out Steven Naismiths opener. Cardiff had staged a fightback after trailing 2-0 to West Ham before going out of the competition. The hosts lead, secured by Ravel Morrison and Matthew Jarvis, was wiped out by Craig Noone and Peter Odemwingie, but the London club recovered with Ricardo Vaz Te netting the winner. At Sunderland, two days after manager Paolo Di Canio was fired, Emanuele Giaccherini and Valentin Roberge scored in a routine victory over third-tier club Peterborough. <a href="" target="_blank">Authentic Mike Ditka Jersey</a> .com) - Jonathan Holmes scored 17 of his 19 points in a lopsided second half as No. <a href="" target="_blank">Jim McMahon Bears Jersey</a> . -- Colorado Avalanche forward P. <a href="" target="_blank"></a> . Toronto coach Scott Milanovich was the first in the CFL to avail himself of the chance to challenge the officials failure to rule pass interference on a play and subject it to video review. His challenge stood and it helped set up Steve Slatons second touchdown of the game to put Toronto ahead 24-16.NEW YORK -- In the final dramatic couple of minutes Sunday night, offensively-gifted DeMar DeRozan turned into a defensive superstar, sent sprawling to the floor when he took two charges. Not to be outdone, hobbling six-foot point guard Kyle Lowry dropped a lovely sky hook over 6-11 giant and future Hall of Famer Kevin Garnett. The final minutes of the Toronto Raptors 87-79 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday could define this young team and their season -- fighting to the end, finding a way to win. &quot;Thats just us, man,&quot; DeRozan said. &quot;Were resilient. Were not going to give up until the games over, were going to fight it through. . . We did it on the defensive end to win this game.&quot; DeRozan scored 24 points and Lowry added 22 to lift the beaten-up Raptors to their first playoff victory on the road since Game 1 against Philadelphia way back in 2001. After the final whistle, a smiling coach Dwane Casey said it was the most proud hes ever been of his team. &quot;(But) were on a mission, its a marathon,&quot; the coach added. &quot;We cant get too excited about a win, cant get too down about a loss. Thats what the playoffs are about.&quot; Amir Johnson, playing on the wonky ankle that has plagued him all season, finished with 17 points. Patrick Patterson and Greivis Vasquez finished with nine points apiece off the bench, and Patterson grabbed a team-high nine rebounds. The best-of-seven Eastern Conference playoff series heads to Toronto tied at two wins apiece. Game 5 is Wednesday at Air Canada Centre, while Game 6 will be back at Barclays Center on Friday. The Raptors led by as much as 17 points -- the biggest lead by either team in this series -- in the first half, but struggled through the second and third quarters, running into foul trouble and failing to hit shots. Still, the nailbiter went into the fourth tied at 67-67. From there, the Raptors dug in with one of their best defensive efforts of the season, holding the Nets to just three baskets in the final 12 minutes. And when the final whistle blew, the Raptors fans in attendance at Barclays Center stood and applauded the Toronto players off the floor. &quot;I think were just encouraged,&quot; Lowry said. &quot;Were going home 2-2. Were encouraged by that. We got a split, now its a three-game series, now weve got to take care of home. Our confidence is high, were excited.&quot; Lowry, who came away from Fridays game with a bad right knee and a busted lip, was noticeably limping at times. &quot;Im OK,&quot; Lowry said. &quot;Its something thats controllable, we can do what weve got to do to get through the playoffs, its nothing where I need surgery. Its definitely a pain, but Im not going to worry about it, Im not going to complain about it, Im going to go out there and do my job.&quot; Lowry kept his composure despite playing the entire second half with five fouls. &quot;Hes dealing with a lot right now, and he came through with flying colours,&quot; Casey said. &quot;Fought through foul trouble, a little bit of adversity throughout the game and still came through.&quot; Lowrys teammates heaped praise on their tough-as-nails point guard in the post-game dressing room. &quot;I am not surprised at all that Kyle is limping around,&quot; Chuck Hayes said. &quot;Man, he was limping all four quarters. Hes a warrior. Hes everything to this team. The guy gives it his all. We just feed off him.&quot; Lowry and DeRozan -- the teams leaders through this remarkable season -- sat side by side at the podium after the game, addressing the media. They talked about the chemistry in this young team. &quot;Were a pretty close-knit team, we understand the situation that were in, its a stepping stone for us,&quot; Lowry said. &quot;Were getting our feet wet. This man (DeRozan) is becoming a superstar in front of everybodys eyes. Hes doing it on the defensive end, the offensive end.&quot; They both chuckled when Lowry was asked about his late-game hook shot over Garnett that gave Toronto a sixx-point lead. <a href="" target="_blank">Richard Dent Jersey</a>. &quot;I think that was the first time (Ive done that) in a game,&quot; Lowry said. &quot;Thats something I work on in the summertime. Kevin Garnett is 6-11, hes a guy who can block shots, and I thought that was a shot I can go to. I took the shot to be aggressive. It looked good. It felt good.&quot; There was more laughter when DeRozan was asked if the two charges he took down the stretch marked a career high. &quot;Nah. I dont think so. I hope its not,&quot; DeRozan said. &quot;With Kyle (being injured), I knew I had to pick up the offence early, so I did that, just come out aggressive and I knew they were going to change up and start trying to get the ball out of my hands. . . I knew I could do some things on the defensive end and thats what I did.&quot; Paul Pierce led the Nets with 22 points, while Mirza Teletovic had 12. Garnett and Deron Williams finished with 10 points apiece. &quot;Theyre a competitive group,&quot; Pierce said on the Raptors play down the stretch. &quot;Weve seen that all season long, how well they play, getting 48 wins, how well they play in the fourth quarter, so many comeback wins. We understand that this is a group thats not going to back down, thats not going to give up. They earn a lot of respect around the league.&quot; The Nets won Games 1 and 3, while the Raptors took Game 2 in whats been an incredibly even matchup all season between these two teams. Prior to Sunday, Toronto had outscored the Nets 678-677 in their seven meetings. The Raptors had struggled with turnovers all series, but cleaned up their act Sunday, giving up the ball just 12 times. The one negative on the night was Terrence Ross, who was M.I.A. for a fourth straight game. Couple with his struggles, Landry Fields being sidelined with a bad back, and the number of Raptors in early foul trouble, Casey went deep into his bench, utilizing John Salmons, Chuck Hayes and Steve Novak for stretches of the third and fourth quarters. Ross, who dropped 51 points in a game earlier this season, has struggled in his playoff debut, and had another rough night Sunday, finishing with zero points in 16 minutes. Fields, who got dumped on his back during Fridays game, didnt dress. While the Raptors braced a hostile crowd at Barclays Center -- especially after GM Masai Ujiris now famous F-bomb about Brooklyn -- it never really materialized. The crowds on either Friday or Sunday didnt pack the auditory punch of the Air Canada Centre. Fans waved white towels, and there was the odd chant of &quot;Ref you suck!&quot; A group of Nets fans chanted &quot;Raptors suck!&quot; before the singing of O Canada. There were large pockets of red-clad Raptors fans in attendance, and their cheers for Raptors baskets down the stretch almost negated Brooklyns homecourt advantage. Rihanna sat courtside, along with Michael K. Williams and Felicia (Snoop) Pearson -- Omar and Snoop from &quot;The Wire.&quot; Williams did the Nets introductions. Russian boxer Ruslan Provodnikov, the current world light welterweight champion, was also in attendance. Meanwhile, back in Toronto on Sunday, thousands of fans jammed Maple Leaf Square to watch the game on the giant screen outside Air Canada Centre. They chanted &quot;We the North!&quot; Two fans participated in a tug-of-war with a Nets T-shirt on stage, eventually ripping it. Amir Johnson led the way with 11 points as the Raptors sprinted out to an 11-point lead just three minutes after tipoff. They continued to build their advantage, and seven straight points by Johnson put Toronto up by 15. They led 35-22 at the end of the first. The Raptors stretched their advantage to 17 points with 5:40 left in the first half. But the Nets went on a 14-2 run to pull within five points. The Raptors headed to the locker-room with a 51-44 lead at halftime. Toronto went a horrible 1-for-16 to open the third quarter, but managed to remain within five points of the Nets, and the game went into the fourth all tied up. <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Wholesale Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Jerseys From China</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys</a> ' ' '

MANCHESTER, England -- Luis Suarez returned to the Premier League in explosive fashion on Sunday, teaming up with strike partner Daniel Sturridge to propel Liverpool to a 3-1 win at Sunderland that inflicted more misery on the divisions managerless bottom team. <a href="" target="_blank">NFL China Jerseys</a> . Liverpool climbed to second place in the standings, two points behind Arsenal, after Suarez added to Sturridges contentious opening goal that came off his arm by scoring twice at the Stadium of Light. After serving a 10-match ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic during a league match in April, Suarez made his comeback in a frustrating League Cup loss to Manchester United on Wednesday. He found the cutting edge against Sunderland, though, to help Liverpool earn a fourth win in six games and provide another demonstration of his burgeoning partnership with Sturridge that was cut short by Suarezs act of folly five months ago. &quot;Hes getting the reward for his hard work over the period that he was off,&quot; Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said of Suarez. &quot;Him and Daniel up front are a real, real handful. They combined very well.&quot; Norwich beat Stoke 1-0 in Sundays other match, with Jonny Howson scoring the winner from long range in the 34th minute to secure his teams second victory of the season. Suarez couldnt have asked for more compliant opposition in his comeback match in the Premier League, with Sunderland having now lost five of its six games and being stranded at the foot of the table on just one point. Interim manager Kevin Ball, who is in charge following the firing of Paolo Di Canio last weekend, was unable to shore up the leagues leakiest defence in the face of one of the leading strike partnerships in English football. Sturridge climbed to the top of the scoring charts with his fifth goal of the campaign, inadvertently bundling the ball in with his upper arm after misjudging the flight of Steven Gerrards corner in the 28th minute. Sturridge then turned provider, cutting in from the right and crossing for Suarez to poke in at the far post in the 36th. After Emanuele Giaccherini had halved the deficit in the 52nd, the same combination struck for Liverpool again to seal victory in the 89th, Sturridge making inroads down the left flank this time and crossing for Suarez to hook home a left-footed finish. &quot;Its great to have him back in, he gives us options and hes one of the best forwards in the league,&quot; Sturridge said of Suarez. &quot;We form a good partnership.&quot; Liverpool went above third-place Tottenham on goals scored and is now six points above arch-rival Man United, which sits in 12th place after losing 2-1 to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday. United is level on seven points with Stoke and Norwich, who served up poor fare at Britannia Stadium except for Howsons brilliant effort that separated the sides. &quot;It was a disappointing performance and we were poor,&quot; said Stoke manager Mark Hughes, whose team outplayed Man City in its last home game. &quot;We never got any pace or power into our game, which is unlike us.&quot; <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys Online</a> . The Jets (10-10-2) are sixth in the Central Division with 22 points, two points behind the fifth-place Dallas Stars. <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys China</a> .5 million per season with defenceman Chris Phillips.

The lab at Kings College London Drug Control Center was accredited by WADA on Monday following a two-year testing program that examined the labs equipment, staff and procedures. Officials from WADAs science department made several visits to the lab in central London, with the site subject to three formal inspections and dummy sample testing. The Kings College lab usually deals with about 8,000 samples per year. It expects to handle more than 6,250 during the Olympics and Paralympics, with about half the competing athletes and every medallist set to be tested. &quot;Achieving WADA accreditation means that the London 2012 Anti-Doping Laboratory will operate to the highest standards of sample analysis during the Olympic and Paralympic Games,&quot; WADA President John Fahey said. &quot;Doping athletes must know that there is a very good chance they will be tested this summer and that everything scientifically possible -- and with the assistannce of growing intelligence -- will be done to make sure that their efforts to cheat are detected by the experts at the laboratory. <a href="" target="_blank">Wholesale Jerseys</a>. &quot; The laboratory is the size of seven tennis courts and will test as many as 400 samples per day during the Olympics and Paralympics -- more than at any previous games. It will run 24 hours a day. &quot;The WADA accreditation is a green light signal that the lab is ready,&quot; said Jonathan Harris, the London organizing committees anti-doping manager. More than 1,000 staff from the London organizing committee will be involved in anti-doping efforts, with 150 scientists working at the lab. Some results will be available within 24 hours of the test. &quot;I am thrilled to receive official accreditation from WADA at such an early stage,&quot; lab director David Cowan said. &quot;We have demonstrated that everything is in place and we are well prepared to deliver robust testing for the games. &quot;This accreditation provides recognition of our ability to operate an effective anti-doping laboratory.&quot; <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Wholesale Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Jerseys From China</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys</a> ' ' '

CHICAGO -- The Cincinnati Reds have activated left-handed reliever Sean Marshall from the 15-day disabled list and optioned the contract of righty Curtis Partch to Triple-A Louisville. <a href="" target="_blank">Maglie Neto</a> . Marshall had soreness in his throwing shoulder in spring training. He remained at extended spring training before two rehab appearances in Louisville. He pitched a scoreless inning Tuesday, allowing one hit and one walk and striking out two. On Wednesday, he allowed a home run in one inning of work. Marshall is 37-46 with a 3.77 ERA in his eight-year career. Partch didnt allow a run in 4 1-3 innings of relief for the Reds before he was sent down Saturday.

Jerome Verriers power-play goal in the second period kicked off a six-goal scoring run by Drummondville in a 7-2 victory over the Val-dOr Foreurs on Saturday. Verrier scored twice for the Voltigeurs (2-0-0), while Mitch Graham, Georgs Golovkovs, Alexandre Roy, Cameron Askew and Giovanni Fiore also scored. Pierre-Maxime Poudrier and Guillaume Gelinas replied for Val-dOr (0-2-0).

Colorado Avalanche and Swedish legend Peter Forsberg didnt mince words when it came to what he thought about Canadian referees working Sundays gold medal game between Sweden and Canada. <a href="" target="_blank">wholesale jerseys</a> . &quot;What a f___ing joke!&quot; the seven-time All-Star said to Swedish reporters, calling the selection of officials Kelly Sutherland, Brad Meier, Greg Devorski and Derek Amell &quot;comedy at its highest level.&quot; Referees Sutherland and linesmen Devorski and Amell are Canadian, while referee Meier is an American who makes his home in Calgary. Not all Swedes are seemingly as upset as Forsberg. Veteran Swedish defenceman Niklas Kronwall of the Detroit Red Wings believes that both teams can benefit from North American officials. &quot;We are used to having referees from USA and Canada in the NHL,&quot; said Kronwall. &quot;We know their standards so I think its easier for us too if the referees are from there.&quot; Former Norris Trophy winner and Ottawa Senators standout Erik Karlsson agreed with his fellow blueliner. &quot;I think most referees over there [in the National Hockey League] are Canadian, too,&quot; said Karlsson. &quot;They probably support Montreal or Toronto, but they dont make any difference there. I couldnt care less about what the referees do. As you saw yesterday, we had two power plays, Finland had a lot, and we still won the game. Its nothing we can control and neither can Canada.&quot; IIHF officiating manager Konstantin Komissarov later confirmed the evaluation process for tournament officials and why that quartet was selected to work the final. &quot;The main factor of the selection of these officials has most of all to do with their experience officiating in high-level competitions,&quot; said Komissarov on Saturday. &quot;These include Stanley Cup playoffs, World Championship competitions, and Olympic competitions.&quot; Komissarov stressed that an officials nationality doesnt play into the process. &quot;Their nationalities arent considered as factors nor should they be, we want the best officials working the medal games,&quot; he said. &quot;We are fully confident that with their experience and professionalism these officials will do their job well and preserve the integrity of the game.&quot; The gold medal game between Canada and Sweden can be seen on TSN, streamed online and heard on TSN Radio on Sunday morning at 7am et/4am pt. <a href="" target="_blank">cheap jerseys From China</a> .

Matt Adams belted a two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth of Mondays 2-0 victory, then it was Kolten Wongs turn Tuesday. Wong broke a 4-4 tie in the ninth with a two-out solo home run for the hosts and finished with two hits and three RBI. &quot;When I hit it, I knew it was gone,&quot; Wong said of his clutch hit off Pirates reliever Ernesto Frieri. &quot;For a moment I forgot to run. Just excited to get home and be the guy jumping into the dog pile. Its something Ill always remember.&quot; Matt Carpenter, Jhonny Peralta and Oscar Taveras ended with two hits apiece and helped the Cardinals pull within three games off the Milwaukee Brewers for first in the NL Central. Pittsburgh is 3 1/2 games behind the Brewers, who have lost three in a row. Carlos Martinez started on the mound for St. Louis last night and was reached for four and eight hits in six innings. Wongs home run made a winner out of Trevor Rosenthal, who worked around a hit and a walk in the ninth. The Cardinals, winners in five of seven games, announced that Jaime Garcia will undergo season-ending surgery due to thoracic outlet syndrome (shoulder), the same procedure former ace Chris Carpenter had back in 2012. The left- handed Garcia went 3-1 with a 4.12 ERA in seven starts. Lance Lynn is one of the healthy St. Louis starters and draws the start Wednesday. Lynn threw 6 2/3 shutout innings in last Fridays 3-2 win over Miami, struck out six and walked three. Lynn was blasted for seven runs (6 earned) in his previous start June 28 at Los Angeles. Lynn has alternated results in the past six trips to the hill and is 9-6 with a 3.17 earned run average. The right-hander is 5-2 in nine homme starts and 7-2 in 12 appearances at night. <a href="" target="_blank">cheap jerseys</a>. Lynn has faced Pittsburgh 12 times (10 starts) in his career and owns a 4-3 record with a 5.13 ERA. He lost at Pittsburgh back on May 10 in a 4-3 setback, allowing all four runs in six innings. Pittsburgh will try to avoid its first three-game slide since June 15-18 when they gets back to work Wednesday. Justin Wilson gave up Adams home run on Monday and Frieri was the mound victim in last nights loss. Vance Worley allowed four runs and nine hits in five innings, while Pedro Alvarez and Andrew McCutchen each hit two-run homers for the Pirates, who are still 12-5 in the last 17 games. &quot;Its not the first time weve had two tough losses and it probably wont be the last time,&quot; said Pirates manager Clint Hurdle. &quot;One swing of the bat changed the game. You shower up and get ready to play tomorrow.&quot; The Pirates have lost three in a row on the road and had prevailed in five straight series as the visitor. In the last 29 games, Pittsburgh starting pitchers have combined to go 15-6 and it will be Brandon Cumptons turn in the rotation on Wednesday. Cumpton was sent to Triple-A Indianapolis when Gerrit Cole was activated off the disabled list, but is now replacing an injured Cole. Cumpton pitched against Louisville on July 4 and was reached for four runs, three of which were earned, and eight hits in six innings of a 7-6 loss in 11 innings. He is 3-2 with a 4.61 earned run average in nine starts this season and unbeaten (3-0) in the past five outings. In a 3-2 win over the New York Mets on June 27, Cumpton tossed seven innings of two-run ball in a no- decision. He has allowed two runs over 14 innings in his last two games. The right-hander won his only start against St. Louis last July 30, when he fired seven scoreless innings of a 6-0 win at PNC Park. St. Louis is 6-5 against Pittsburgh this season and each of the last five games in this series has been decided by two runs or less. <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Wholesale Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Jerseys From China</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys</a> ' ' '

Arsenal, Manchester United and Manchester City all opened the Champions League knockout phase with first-leg losses, while Chelsea drew. But on Thursday, straight after Swansea was knocked out of the Europa League, Tottenham overturned a 1-0 deficit against Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk to win 3-1 at White Hart Lane and advance to the round of 16. Roman Zozulya headed the Ukrainian side in front at the start of the second half but, after Christian Eriksen levelled from a free kick, he was dismissed for head-butting Jan Vertonghen in the 62nd minute.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. <a href="" target="_blank">Kevin Wimmer Jersey UK</a> . -- Barry Bonds is all set to return to the San Francisco Giants. As a spring training instructor, that is. The all-time home run leader who never officially retired is expected to arrive during the second week of March. Manager Bruce Bochy said Saturday that hes looking forward to having the 49-year-old Bonds in camp and thinks he can help the hitters. Bonds spent his last 15 seasons with the Giants, finishing in 2007. He has not been elected to the Hall of Fame, with many voters saying his lofty numbers were boosted by performance-enhancing drugs. Bonds set major league records with 762 career home runs and 73 in 2001. He also had a .444 career on-base percentage and a .607 slugging percentage and stole 514 bases. Hell join former Giants Jeff Kent, Robb Nen, Will Clark and J.T. Snow as special instructors. Kent and Bonds were involved in a highly publicized feud during the 2002 season, which reached its peak in June, when the two engaged in a shoving match in the dugout that was caught on camera. Bonds final contract with the Giants included a 10-year services deal following his retirement, which included spring training visits. The seven-time MVP has made limited public appearances since his final season, and has been embroiled in legal trouble. Bonds remains a fan favourite in San Francisco, enjoying a warm reception any time hes introduced at AT&amp;T Park, the Giants home park. Matt Cain, the Giants longest active tenured player, was Bonds teammate between 2005-07. Tim Lincecum made his major league debut in 2007. Bonds also holds the big league records for walks in a season (232 in 2004, including a record 120 intentional walks) and in a career (2,55<img src="" valign="bottom" />. Bonds was a .298 hitter during a 22-year career. He had a .609 on-base percentage and .812 slugging percentage in 2004. Overall, Bonds homered against 449 different pitchers. He shares the major league record with his father, Bobby Bonds, for most seasons (5) with 30 home runs and 30 stolen bases. He hit eight home runs in the 2002 post-season and holds the record for highest slugging percentage (1.294 in 2002) in a World Series. <a href="" target="_blank">Kieran Trippier Jersey UK</a> .com) - Hall of Fame forward Jean Beliveau, who led the Montreal Canadiens to 10 Stanley Cup Championships, died on Tuesday. <a href="" target="_blank">Marcos Rojo Jersey UK</a> . -- His voice cracking with emotion, Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice acknowledged Friday that he &quot;failed miserably&quot; and apologized for the actions that led to his arrest on assault charges. <a href="" target="_blank"></a> . No matter. The Pittsburgh Penguins star can handle things by himself when he needs to. Malkin scored in his return from a lower-body injury, Sidney Crosby added his 16th goal, and the Penguins beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 2-1 on Monday night. CLEVELAND -- Dont ask Maurice Cheeks why his team is so successful away from home. The Detroit Pistons coach cant explain it. &quot;I dont have any theories why that is,&quot; he said. &quot;I just dont know.&quot; Josh Smith scored 25 points, Brandon Jennings added 21 and the Pistons continued their domimant play on the road with a 115-92 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday night. The Pistons have won seven of their last eight away from home, including victories against defending NBA champion Miami and Indiana, which has the best record in the Eastern Conference. While Cheeks cant come up with a reason, reserve guard Chauncey Billups, a veteran of 17 seasons, managed to put his finger on something. &quot;On the road, all we have is us,&quot; he said. &quot;We know we have to stick together when their crowds get going and they go on runs.&quot; The Pistons went on plenty of runs in their latest road success. Detroit went ahead for good midway through the first quarter and built a 21-point lead late in the first half. The margin reached 28 points in the fourth quarter as the Pistons rolled to their biggest win of the season. Jennings also had 13 assists for Detroit, which placed seven players in double figures. Kyrie Irving scored 21 points for Cleveland, which has lost four of five. &quot;We got our butts handed to us tonight,&quot; said forward Tristan Thompson. The Cavaliers had shown signs of progress earlier this month, winning three straight and five of six. Cleveland has struggled since, dropping close games to Miami and Portland and losing by 16 points to a short-handed Chicago team on Saturday. &quot;Our sense of urgency the last two ballgames has been non-existent,&quot; Cleveland coach Mike Brown said. Cavaliers centre Andrew Bynum was scoreless in 22 minutes, missing all 11 shots from the field and getting seven rebounds. Detroit is 6-10 on its own court and was coming off home losses to Charlotte and Houston, but took control early. Smith scored 10 points in the first quarter when Detroit shot 56 per cent. Smith hit 3-pointers on back-to-back possessions late in the second quarter that stretched the lead to 56-35. The Pistons were 22 of 41 from the field in the first half and took a 58-40 lead tto the locker room. <a href="" target="_blank">Axel Tuanzebe Jersey UK</a>. Cleveland cut the lead to 10 points in the third quarter, but three baskets by Jennings, including two 3-pointers, five points by Smith and dunks by Andre Drummond on consecutive fast breaks extended the lead back to 89-64. Smith was 10 of 18 from the field and had eight rebounds and three assists in 31 minutes. &quot;Working in the paint is the strength in our game, so Im making a conscious effort to not settle for shots,&quot; Smith said. &quot;Im used to being a little selfish, but I can be a distributor when other guys get hot.&quot; Jennings directed the offence with 13 assists. Drummond had 14 points and 11 rebounds while Greg Monroe scored 11 points and had 11 rebounds. Reserves from both teams played most of the fourth quarter. Thompson scored 17 points for the Cavaliers. Cleveland played without guard Dion Waiters, the teams second-leading scorer, for the third straight game because of tendinitis in his right wrist. Brown is still searching for answers to get his team to play with more consistency. The loss was Clevelands biggest at home since a 125-90 defeat against San Antonio on April 3, 2012. &quot;I dont know if we mentally understand what it takes to keep doing this every time we step out on the floor,&quot; he said. &quot;Were getting hit in the mouth right now and Im interested to see if we can respond the right way.&quot; The Pistons have won seven in a row against the Cavaliers, including four straight in Cleveland. Cheeks coached his 600th career game. He has also coached for Portland and Philadelphia. NOTES: Drummond was given a flagrant foul for knocking Thompson to the floor while the Cavaliers forward drove in the lane in the first quarter. ... The Cavaliers were hit with three delay-of-game warnings in the first quarter, resulting in two technical fouls. ... Cavaliers rookie F Anthony Bennett -- the No. 1 overall pick in the draft -- returned after missing two games with the flu. He missed three shots and committed a turnover in six first quarter minutes. Bennett ended the game with seven points. ... Cleveland reserve C Tyler Zeller scored a season-high 13 points, all in the fourth quarter. ... Drummond recorded his 21st double-double of the season. <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Wholesale Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Jerseys From China</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys</a> ' ' '

RENTON, Wash. <a href="" target="_blank">Joe Allen Jersey</a> . -- Linebacker OBrien Schofield and cornerback A.J. Jefferson have both agreed to terms to join the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks. Schofield announced on his Twitter page Friday that he was re-signing with the Seahawks. Jeffersons agent also tweeted about the cornerback joining the Seahawks after he was released last November by Minnesota following an arrest. The Seahawks confirmed later Friday that both players had agreed to terms with the team. Seattle also announced it would not pick up the fifth-year contract option on former first-round pick James Carpenter, making him eligible to be a free agent after the 2014 season. Schofield proved important early last season when injuries hit the Seahawks defence. Schofield appeared in 15 regular-season games with two starts. He finished with one sack and appeared in two playoff games. Schofield agreed to a deal with the New York Giants in free agency but the deal was voided. Jefferson appeared in 25 games combined over the past two seasons with Minnesota. His best season came in 2011 with Arizona when he had 59 tackles and one interception. Jefferson was released by the Vikings last November after he was arrested and jailed on a domestic assault complaint. According to Hennepin County, Minnesota, court records, Jefferson pleaded guilty to a misdemeanour charge in March and is on probation for one year. Jefferson also had to pay $1,078 in fines and fees. Carpenter was Seattles first-round selection in 2011. Hes struggled to maintain a starting spot with the Seahawks, playing in just 32 games in three seasons. Last season was the first time Carpenter was healthy for an entire year and he started 10 of 16 games. He also started at left guard in the Super Bowl. Seattle also announced moves on its coaching staff, adding Chris Morgan as an assistant offensive line coach, Chad Morton as an assistant special teams coach and Will Harriger as an offensive assistant. Morgan comes to Seattle from the Washington Redskins, while Morton most recently worked for Green Bay once his playing career ended. Harriger was most recently coaching at Florida. The Seahawks also announced that Nate Carroll -- son of coach Pete Carroll -- will now be Seattles assistant wide receivers coach and John Glenn will be a quality control coach for the defence <a href="" target="_blank">Gareth Bale Wales Jersey</a> .com) - The Cincinnati Bengals have become experts at offensive storm-weathering. <a href="" target="_blank">Joe Ledley Wales Jersey</a> . -- Justin Verlander watched helplessly as his first pitch went sailing toward the outfield wall. <a href="" target="_blank"></a> . Assistant coaches are arguing on the sideline. A disgruntled star player isnt giving his best effort.SACRAMENTO - Some say that living well is the best revenge. At least four players on the Raptors roster subscribe to that philosophy. When Torontos Patrick Patterson, John Salmons, Greivis Vasquez and Chuck Hayes return to Sacramentos Sleep Train Arena Wednesday, theyll be feeling a lot better about themselves than when they were last in the building, when they called it home. Its been nearly two full months since that fateful night in Los Angeles when a seven-player trade shook the foundation of the Raptors franchise. As reports began to circulate hours before tip-off, the timing of the deal caught everyone off guard. In exchange for the bloated contract and modest production of Rudy Gay - along with Quincy Acy and Aaron Gray - Toronto took back four veteran wild cards. Each of the four had experienced some level of individual success in the league. Vasquez and Patterson - the youngest of the four - were both coming off career seasons, one in New Orleans, the other in Houston. Hayes - a nine-year vet - had been a starter with the Rockets and Salmons, now in his 12th season, was a key contributor to playoff teams in Chicago and Milwaukee. At 34 and 30 respectfully, Salmons and Hayes immediately became the elder statesmen on a young Raptors squad. Each of them had started in at least one of Sacramentos first 18 games. They were rotation players for a team that was 5-13 at the time of the trade. &quot;Coming from here in Sacramento, things werent that great,&quot; Salmons said, candidly reflecting back on the trade after wrapping up practice in the Kings gym Tuesday. &quot;So when we got the opportunity to come here we just wanted to take advantage of it. Losings not fun and this team had a chance to make a run at the playoffs.&quot; Without Gay, who was shooting 39 per cent and hoisting just under 19 shots per game, most anticipated there would be at least some addition by subtraction but no one - even internally - knew what to expect from the incoming Kings players. Likewise, they didnt know what to expect from a Raptors team that had a 6-12 record prior to that game in LA on Dec. 8. &quot;I mean you hear stuff about other teams, but the only thing you really know is their record,&quot; Salmons added. &quot;You know their record, you know their roster but you dont know the whole story. So coming in all we saw was the record, we didnt know that the locker room was full of good guys.&quot; Toronto has gone 19-10 since the trade was made official, 19-9 since the acquired players made their Raptor debuts, good for the third-best record in the Eastern Conference over that stretch. Not only did the trade improve the Raptors bench, it made their bench. On most nights, Dwane Casey has settled into a strict nine-man rotation, using the four ex-Kings as his primary reserves. Torontos bench combined for 35 points on 52 per cent shooting in Mondays win over the Jazz. They have scored 30 or more in three of the last five contests and are averaging 26.6 points since the trade. Casey has entrusted them to be on the floor in key situations. Quite frankly, theyve earned it. &quot;I feeel like we got four veteran, solid players that really helped us in a lot of different ways and gave us some toughness off the bench,&quot; the Raptors coach said. <a href="" target="_blank">Joe Ledley Jersey</a>. . &quot;Right now, obviously [Toronto is] playing at a very high level,&quot; said Kings coach Mike Malone. &quot;I think all four of our guys are helping them at different points.&quot; The newcomers have each put their stamp on the teams run. Often the first player off the bench, Patterson is logging fewer minutes than he was in Sacramento, yet averaging three more points per game, contributing nearly 10 as a Raptor. Hayes has carved out a niche as a reliable, savvy and hardworking stopper and rebounder. Salmons, a two-way player, has become Torontos third ball handler. Of the four, Vasquez is the only one who has seen his scoring average dip since coming to the Raptors. Still, hes not complaining. &quot;Im in a different situation right now and Im pretty happy,&quot; said Vasquez, who has stepped in as a reliable backup to Kyle Lowry, something the team was desperately searching for early in the season. &quot;I think winning really makes everything so much better. Id rather be in a winning program right now than going through a tough time [in Sacramento].&quot; You would have to be naive to think that Wednesdays return to Sacramento is just another game for those four. The Kings are 11-19 since sending them to Toronto and the statement theyre hoping to make has more to do with their collective success than individual performances. &quot;You always look forward to playing the team that traded you,&quot; said Vasquez, averaging seven points and four assists with the Raptors. &quot;More than that its about winning. At the end of the day, whether I play well, whether I dont play well, I just want to go back to Sacramento with a win.&quot; Vasquez was only with the Kings for a couple months to begin the season. For Salmons, his connection with the Sacramento franchise goes back seven years. In 2006, the Philadelphia-native pulled out of a deal with the Raptors to sign in Sacramento. After being moved to the Bulls, then to the Bucks, Salmons eventually found his way back to the Kings but became expendable when new ownership decided to take the team in a different direction. The trade to Toronto was Salmons fifth since being drafted out of Miami in 2002 but he took this one more personally than the others. He felt slighted by an organization that he had spent most of his career playing for. &quot;When I got traded I had mixed feelings, strong mixed feelings,&quot; he admitted. &quot;Im not going to say I was totally mad at the [Kings] organization it was just, I dont know, it was just a little tougher this time.&quot; Now, as he and his teammates get set to make their much-anticipated return, that animosity is water under the bridge, more or less. Salmons, like the other three, is sincerely happy to be a Raptor. Winning is the best medicine. &quot;Guys enjoy winning,&quot; said Salmons. &quot;Theres the old saying, winning cures everything so the more we win the more people want to sacrifice to continue winning.&quot; <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Wholesale Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Jerseys From China</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys</a> ' ' '

The 4-year-old colt has been training consistently at the track and is being pointed toward the $500,000 San Antonio Stakes at Santa Anita Park on Saturday, Feb. 7. He looks really good right now, said trainer Art Sherman. It will be nice if all three horses can hook up in the San Antonio. I think they will. Ive got a good feeling about it. The three horses Sherman alluded to are his colt along with Bayern and Shared Belief. These are the probable finalists for the Eclipse Award as 2014 champion 3-year-old colt and gelding with at least two of them among the finalists for Horse of the Year. The finalists will be announced Wednesday, Jan 7. Bayern, last years Breeders Cup Classic winner, is based at Santa Anita and Shared Belief, 2013 champion 2-year-old, is stabled at Golden Gate Fields. Victor Espinoza, California Chromes jockey, is also excited for the colts upcoming 4-year-old season. He worked the horse Saturday morning at Los Alamitos, going six furlongs in 1:12.60 He worked unbelievable, Espinoza said. He went in one twelve and change which is what I wanted from him. He was pulling a lot. Hes getting tougher; hes on his toes right now. Hes basically better than before. How dangerous will California Chrome be this season if hes better than he was as a 3-year-old when he won five straight stakes to begin the year and then finished with a commanding victory on turf in the 1 1/8-mile Hollywood Derby at Del Mar? He has completely changed as hes getting older. As a 4-year-old, hes going to be a different horse. He works differently. Yesterday (Saturday) was the slowest I could go. Hes pulling hard, which he never used to do. Hes tough. Hes building back up big time physically. He tries to jump around and bite the pony every chance he gets and I believe in 2015 hell run the best races of his life ... Hes an amazing horse and he did unbelievable things in 2014 but Im really looking forward to 2015. The San Antonio, at 1 1/8 miles, has been the customary prep event for the 1 1/4-mile Santa Anita Handicap held a month later. The last two Big Caps were won by Game On Dude who is now retired. Having the three best known thoroughbreds running against each other so early in the year is a rare treat for thoroughbred racing fans. It would be fun to see these three horses come together again in the San Antonio, noted Alan Sherman, assistant to his father. Fun is exactly what thoroughbred racing is all about and kicking off the year with high profile horses facing each other elevates the excitement immeasurably. <a href="" target="_blank"></a> .

PHILADELPHIA -- The 76ers have a catchy anthem they play at every home game, a decades-old tune with a chorus the fans belt out: &quot;1-2-3-4-5-Sixers.&quot; Now, they can count all the way to 19. The Sixers losing streak goes on, and a dubious franchise-tying skid is just a defeat away. Paul George scored 25 points and David West had 18 to help the Indiana Pacers beat Philadelphia 101-94 on Friday night, sending the 76ers to their 19th straight loss. With a loss to Memphis on Saturday, the Sixers can tie the franchise record for consecutive defeats in a single season. The Sixers lost 20 straight games from Jan. 9, 1973-Feb. 11, 1973 in a 9-73 season. The NBA record for consecutive losses in a season is 26 set by the 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers. &quot;We need every break we can get if we are going to beat a team,&quot; first-year coach Brett Brown said. The Sixers last won on Jan. 29 on Evan Turners buzzer-beater at Boston. Turner was traded to the Pacers at the Feb. 20 deadline and is now a key reserve on a team expected to make a deep run in the Eastern Conference playoffs. The Pacers boast Turner, Lavoy Allen and Andrew Bynum, all former Sixers who were expected to turn the franchise into contenders last season. When that plan backfired, the Sixers decided to rebuild, cleaning house of most of their rotation players and set their aim on the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 draft. Thaddeus Young led the Sixers with 25 points on 10 of 31 shooting and had 10 assists. Unlike the 76ers, the Pacers have tons of talent and the top spot in the East. They raced to a 17-point lead in the first half, then held off a spirited run by the Sixers that saw the lead sliced to five midway through the fourth. The Sixers came up empty on five straight possessions before Young hit two free throws to make it 87-84. Young, the longest-tenured Sixers player, made it 93-90 on a jumper that put them on the brink of ending their losing skid. George, though, hit a tough, driving layup and George Hill buried a baseline 3-pointer for an eight-point cushion, and the Pacers averted the upset. &quot;This game could have easily been a blowout-type of game,&quot; George said. &quot;Youve got to give them credit, they kept battling.&quot; The PPacers are happy to have the ex-Sixers trio aboard, strengthening a bench that needed some offensive punch. <a href="" target="_blank"></a>. Bynum sat out Friday night to rest his achy knees, the same ailment that cost him all of last season with the Sixers. Hundreds of fans turned out to the National Constitution Center for Bynums public press conference after he was acquired from the Los Angeles Lakers in an August 2012 trade. He was supposed to be the missing piece for a franchise coming off a run to Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. Bynum was a bust, the first string pulled in the unraveling of a franchise. Bynum had eight points and 10 rebounds in a win Tuesday against Boston -- his first game in nearly 2 1/2 months. &quot;I finally got on the court with him,&quot; Turner said. &quot;It was like the 80th-something attempt since I met him. Im glad hes halfway healthy. Had he played (in Philly), we probably would have still been rocking.&quot; Bynum wants to be a factor in the post-season, so hell rest against teams like the Sixers. &quot;I need to get game minutes, obviously,&quot; said Bynum, Indianas 7-foot centre. &quot;But I dont want to miss four or five consecutive days. The whole point is to stay around and play as many games as possible.&quot; Allen scored a season-high 13 points on 6-of-6 shooting and Turner had two points. Hill had 14 points and Lance Stephenson had 13 points and 12 rebounds for the Pacers. Indiana was 39 of 67 from the floor compared to Philadelphias 35 of 90. &quot;I think were playing some pretty good basketball,&quot; George said. Turner, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2010 draft, earned a video tribute and a smattering of applause when he checked into the game. Turner was never a difference maker for the Sixers, and his failure to make a significant impact could serve as a scary reminder that team president/general manager Sam Hinkies plan to rebuild through the draft could hit some significant potholes. &quot;Youve got to have a plan,&quot; Turner said, &quot;and to do that in Philly takes guts.&quot; And a whole lot of losses. Notes: The 76ers signed G Darius Johnson-Odom to a 10-day contract. They also waived G Lorenzo Brown. ... Bynum hopes to play Saturday when the Pacers are at Detroit. <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Wholesale Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Jerseys From China</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys</a> ' ' '
