Brooks Orpik Stanley Cup Jersey .Kelly and Dea, both delisted free agents, have agreed to one and two-year deals respectively, the club announced on Friday.The duo were among 10 top-up players signed to one-year deals ahead of the 2016 season as the Bombers attempted to cover the absence of players serving anti-doping bans.John Worsfolds depleted side managed just three wins and finished on the bottom of the ladder, but the pair seized their AFL lifelines.Kelly, a triple premiership player with Geelong, finished equal second in the Bombers best and fairest after being coaxed out of retirement.Its been a real privilege for me to be part of this footy club, Kelly said.I have really enjoyed my football under Woosha and was always hopeful for the chance to go around again next season.I am really looking forward to watching the development of the younger players on our list as we strive for future success.Kelly, 32, now has a chance to pass the 300-game milestone.He played 273 games with the Cats before he reluctantly retired at the end of the 2015 season and added another 20 with Essendon this year.Dea, 25, was cut by Richmond after 31 games in five years, but played in a career-high 21 matches this season.He finished ninth in the best and fairest count and won the most courageous player award.The boys have been fantastic and the coaches have been really supportive since the day I arrived, Dea said.This season was a massive opportunity for me to develop my game and Im really honoured to have the chance to continue my career in the red and black.

INDIANAPOLIS -- The stats still look bad for the Indianapolis Colts offensive line. Air Max 97 Country Camo .The game tape is finally starting to become more palatable.After allowing a league-high 25 sacks and seeing franchise quarterback Andrew Luck get knocked around dozens more times in the first seven games, this young group is fighting back.Were not where we started at, but I think all five guys are starting to put it together, rookie center Ryan Kelly said earlier this week after another solid performance.Nobody will mistake this starting unit with the leagues best -- or even with those underrated offensive lines who kept Peyton Manning almost spotless for most of his career.But they are clearly making progress.Two weeks ago, at Houston, the Colts linemen paved the way for Frank Gore to become the first Colts 100-yard runner in 56 games.Last week, against a Tennessee defense that has been among the leagues best in sacks, the offensive line held up reasonably well again.While Luck went down twice, as he has in every game this season, the franchise quarterback took only seven hits. Theyve even be cutting down those pesky penalties .The Colts (3-4) did all that despite using five starting lineups in five weeks while using at least two rookies in each game.I think those guys played a great game and I think it showed with our playmakers and the way they performed, left guard Jack Mewhort said after sitting out the Titans game with an injured triceps. It was a great game, but we still have a lot of areas we need to improve on.Mewhort hopes to return Sunday against an opportunistic Kansas City defense .If the recent progression indicates anything, its this: Perhaps Indys offseason investment is starting to pay dividends.With Anthony Castonzo holding down the tackle job for the sixth consecutive season and Mewhort back at guard, general manager Ryan Grigson figured he had a left side foundation on which he could build upon.Grigson drafted Kelly in the first round, hoping to solidify the most unstable position throughout Lucks first four pro seasons. Kelly has not disappointed.His game isnt perfect, hed be the first one to tell you that, coach Chuck Pagano said.Hes making some mistakes like everyone else but the sirens arent going off at that position, which is a good thing.Indy is still trying to sort out its right side.While veteran Joe Reitz has started five games at tackle, the Colts (3-4) appear to have found a gem in fifth-round draft pick Joe Haeg, who has played well with two starts at right tackle, one at right guard and one at left guard.Joe Haeg is a perfect example of a guy who comes in, keeps his head down and works and studies, Mewhort said. I think that says a lot about him and his character.The early returns could give Haeg the inside track to becoming the fourth piece in Indys long-term puzzle.Theres no heir apparent yet for the fifth and final piece.Denzelle Good, a second-year player, has had mixed results in his five starts at right guard. Seventh-round draft pick Austin Blythe has one start in place of Good, and its not yet clear how third-round pick LeRaven Clark fits into the plan. Clark has played in three games, but has not started yet.But now that the Colts are putting things together on tape, they need to see something else -- results on paper, too.We watched the film as a group with the running backs as well and we saw some really good things and we saw some things we need to improve on, Castonzo said. As a whole, we felt pretty good about our performance.Game notes Mewhort and defensive tackle Henry Anderson (knee) did not practice Thursday after doing limited work Wednesday. Receiver T.Y. Hilton (hip) and inside linebacker DQwell Jackson (rest) also sat out Thursday. ... Tight end Dwayne Allen (ankle), defensive end Kendall Langford (knee), outside linebacker Curt Maggitt (ankle) and receiver Chester Rogers (foot and hamstring) all missed practice for the second straight day. ... Luck (right shoulder and ankle) did limited work Thursday, as has become the weekly norm. Receiver Done Moncrief (shoulder blade) and safety Mike Adams (shin) also were limited participants.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Undefeated Air Max 97 White .ca. Kerry,  Just watched the shootout in the Coyotes/Leafs game and I have to ask, why was the James van Riemsdyk goal allowed to count?  All of the video replays we were shown on TV were inconclusive about whether the puck had entirely crossed the line or not. Air Max 97 KPU . A forerunning sled crashed into the worker Thursday at the Sanki Sliding Center. The unidentified worker broke both legs and was airlifted to a nearby hospital. http://www.cheapairmax97uk.org/ . The 25-year-old Japanese star has officially been posted by his club team, the Rakuten Golden Eagles. ATLANTA -- Lets face it, Robbie Lawler is not a brilliant fight promoter.The defending UFC welterweight champion does not produce many headlines, and he tends to say little about his opponents. Hes focused on himself, you know? Hes getting better in the gym every day. Hes not worried about the other guy. Zzzzzzzzzzzzz.The best way to promote a Lawler fight is to show a Lawler fight. Thats his selling point -- entertaining, action-packed fights; the kind that might even intimidate future opponents. You want to take Lawlers title? Better be prepared for the worst 25 minutes of your life.Tyron Woodley, who will take on Lawler for the 170-pound title on Saturday at UFC 201 at Philips Arena, says hes up to the challenge.Robbie will bleed and smile and always keep coming, but you have to be intimidated by him to break from that, Woodley said. Thats actually his main attribute. But hes not the boogeyman to me. Im sorry. You put him at the foot of my bed, Im gonna open my eyes, take one look at him, and fall my ass right back to sleep.Its worth noting Woodley (15-3) has a long history with Lawler, which might help him humanize the champ more than others.Much of the pre-fight attention has been dedicated to whether or not the two are real teammates. They both represent American Top Team out of South Florida, although Woodley stopped holding his full-time camp there more than a year ago.Their relationship actually goes back well before Lawler joined ATT in 2013. It even goes back before Woodleys professional debut in 2009.Robbie was a guest referee for my last two amateur fights, Woodley said. I actually trained occasionally at his gym in Granite City, Illinois, which was 15 minutes from my house in St. Louis. We never sparred because Robbie wasnt doing much sparring at the time, but we wrestled a few times.I have video right now on a hard drive, me as an amateur fighter sitting in his gym saying, One day, Im going to be a UFC champion. Who the hell would have thought Id be fighting against the person whose gym I was in to make that happen? Those are things that I think make this a little more speciial. Air Max 97 Pull Tab Brown. The two shared a gym again when Lawler joined ATT, but Woodley ultimately left to open a satellite gym in St. Louis. A former collegiate wrestler at the University of Missouri, Woodley also trains out of Roufusport in Milwaukee, alongside his former college teammate Ben Askren.Since Woodley was the one who relocated, he will, technically, be staring across the cage at a team that once coached him. The 34-year-old says hes not concerned how that might affect the matchup.Are they that familiar with me? Woodley asked. I dont think they are. I think theyre extremely familiar with what they saw a year and a half ago. How much have they seen since? Ill be jumping off the cage in this fight for all they know, throwing spinning backfists and flying armbars. They have no clue what Im coming with.If Lawler does possess inside knowledge on Woodley, he certainly isnt hinting at it. As is the case before all his fights, Lawler says his entire focus is on himself. Hes hoping for a finish, rather than another five-round war, but if it comes to that, he knows where he stands.Its not something I worry about, whether my opponents have that heart in them or not, Lawler said. All I know is that I have it. If they end up having it too, thats when you see something special. But I dont know what the other guy is bringing to the table. Im doing what I can to get them out of there. Thats about it.Where many see a stoic, ruthless juggernaut, who (and this actually is a quote from Lawler) looks to claim an opponents soul in a fight, Woodley sees a beatable opponent who doesnt scare him one bit.He has been put away before, Woodley said. Jacare [Ronaldo] Souza? Nick Diaz? I remember those fights. I watched those fights. Tim Kennedys wrestling was too much for him. Lorenz Larkin was too fast. I possess all those skills, but better. Styles make fights, you know what I mean?I think hes showing a lot of caution before this fight because he knows my style -- he has to respect it.

GREEN BAY, Wis. Undefeated Air Max 97 Green . -- Its usually the father worried about the son getting hurt on the football field, but in the case of Green Bay Packers linebacker Joe Thomas Jr., its the other way around.On Saturday afternoon, when Joe Jr. is on the Packers team plane headed for Sundays game at Washington, his 55-year-old father is expected to make history and play in a college football game. If all goes as planned, Joe Sr. will take the field as the oldest walk-on running back for South Carolina State University, where Joe Jr. played from 2010 to 2013.I am a little worried, Joe Jr. said Friday at Lambeau Field. I know his body might be a little fragile. Im going to try to get the coach not to run him on one of those stretch plays. Im going to try to get him to run straight downhill.Joe Jr. has been with the Packers since 2015, yet hardly anyone around the team knew his father was enrolled at his alma mater, let alone on the football team, until a story appeared this week in Sports Illustrateds Campus Rush.Joe Sr. isnt even listed on the South Carolina State roster because hes still awaiting clearance from the NCAA, but Joe Jr. said the coaches there have assured him his father will play on Saturday against Savannah State, the second-to-last game of the season.Thats the word I got from the coach, Joe Jr. said. He texted me and said hes going to give him a carry tomorrow.Its senior night, and my grandma is going to walk him on the field.He said his father was an entrepreneur in South Carolina with a construction company and a training facility until the recession wiped out his business. Four years ago, his father decided to pursue a degree -- hes studying engineering -- and revive his athletic career. Joe Jr., whose cousin is former Patriots receiver Troy Brown, was all for it.Its been crazy for me, Joe Jr. said. I never thought youd see a 55-year-old running back. Im just proud of him. He made his mind up to do something and stuck to it.When asked whether his dad can actually play, Joe Jr. said: He always kept in good shape. He always works out. He doesnt drink or smoke, so his bodys in pretty good shape. If you read the article, it says when I was in high school, I raced him in our front yard and he beat me. Air Max 97 Metallic Red Bronze . The Oilers come in having lost five in a row (0-4-1) and 16 of their last 20 games, dropping a 2-1 decision to the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday. Nike Air Max Uptempo 97 UK . 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. http://www.cheapairmax97uk.org/air-max-97-undefeated.html . Tracey comes to the Blue Bombers after spending over a decade with Queens University. Most recently he was the schools assistant football coach. ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. -- Offer one mulligan to Kevin Chappell for the last year and the rules are bound to be broken.He mentioned the tee shot on the 18th hole at Bay Hill that was buried in deep rough and forced him to lay up, and he finished one shot behind Jason Day. He mentioned the tee shot on the 17th hole at East Lake that missed the fairway by two steps and sunk to the bottom of the Bermuda rough, leading to an untimely bogey at the Tour Championship that cost him the lead.Halfway through talking about the tee shot on the 18th in regulation at East Lake, he was reminded he could take only one shot back.I know, I know, Chappell replied.How about 18 at Bay Hill? he said after a long pause. If I handled that situation differently, maybe the other two dont happen.Its easy to think about everything that didnt go Chappells way over the last year because he is still searching for his first PGA Tour victory going into the RSM Classic at Sea Island, the final official PGA Tour event of the year.The 30-year-old Californian doesnt see it that way.He was runner-up three times against some of the strongest fields, losing to the top two players in the world without doing much wrong. Jason Day beat him at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players Championship, and Rory McIlroy beat Chappell and Ryan Moore at the Tour Championship.Chappell rose to No. 28 in the world and went places he had never been. He played in the World Golf Championships for the first time, at the Bridgestone Invitational (tie for third behind Dustin Johnson) and the HSBC Champions. He made his inaugural trip to the British Open. Hell make his debut in the Masters next year.Missing from that itinerary is Kapalua for the winners-only Tournament of Champions.The competitor in me never wants to get that close that many times and not close, Chappell said. In the long run, that might be a great thing.He mentioned the patience of Steve Stricker and the relatively slow start by Day, the No. 1 player in the world who won just one time in his first six years on tour. Chappell finished last season at No. 8 on the money list with just over $4.5 million.Its hard to get hung up on the negatives.It can never be a bad thing to play that much good golf, Chappell said. Air Max 97 Mid Riccardo Tisci. If he were to win this week -- he was runner-up a year ago to Kevin Kisner -- he wont go to Kapalua because his wife, Elizabeth, is due to give birth to their second child in January. Chappells final event of the year is the Franklin Templeton Shootout, another perk to having a big year.His partner is Kisner, which is only fitting. Few players can appreciate the kind of year Chappell had.When he showed up at Sea Island last year, Kisner had been runner-up four times over the previous seven months without doing much wrong. Rickie Fowler beat him in a playoff at The Players Championship. So did Jim Furyk at Hilton Head. He lost another playoff at Greenbrier, and Russell Knox beat him in Shanghai.Kisner saw only good golf, and he blew away everyone at Sea Island to win by six shots.If you keep doing what youre doing and you keep putting yourself in that position, youre going to win one, Kisner said. Its just a matter of time. Youve got to stay patient. Hes a hell of a player and hes going to win plenty of times on tour in the next few years.Chappell had a one-shot lead when his tee shot on the 18th at Bay Hill found the rough, and by the time he faced his 25-foot par putt, Day made a birdie on the 17th to catch him and then won with a par on the 18th. Chappell birdied the 16th at the Tour Championship for a two-shot lead. But his tee shot in the rough forced him to lay up (bogey), McIlroy made birdie in front of him to tie for the lead and Chappells tee shot on the par-5 18th kept him from a reasonable birdie chance for the win.His final-round score in his runner-up finishes over the last year: 67, 69, 69, 66.So when he looks back -- at moments, not trophies -- he has no qualms declaring this a good year.Id be doing myself a disservice to look at it negatively, he said. And theres stuff to look forward to as I sit here today.A baby in January. His first Masters in April.And right ahead of him is one last chance to leave no doubt what kind of year it has been.

SEATTLE -- Nicolas Lodeiro figures hes just getting started. Womens Celtics Jerseys .The Seattle Sounders hope hes right.Lodeiro scored his first MLS goal, then assisted on Jordan Morris team-leading eighth in Seattles 2-1 victory over Real Salt Lake on Sunday.Im very happy. I hope its the first of many, Lodeiro said through an interpreter. But the most important thing is the win today.The Sounders (8-12-3) have won two straight and are 2-0-1 since parting ways with former coach Sigi Schmid on July 26. Lodeiro has factored into four of their last five goals, with two assists last week in a 3-1 victory at Orlando City.He has come and turned things around, but the whole team has had a hand in that, not just one person, Seattle interim head coach Brian Schmetzer said. Hes a very talented soccer player, and he makes everyone else around him better. But the whole team kind of rises up with him -- that might be his biggest contribution, aside from a goal and an assist tonight.Lodeiro, the Uruguayan national midfielder signed by Seattle as a Designated Player on July 27, tallied in the 24th minute. Clint Dempsey lofted the ball toward the left wing side. Andreas Ivanschitz took it into penalty area, crossed it toward the middle, and Lodeiro drilled it high into the left side of the net.In the 37th minute, Dempsey deked around a defender and sent a ball toward the left side, where Lodeiro caught up with it and floated a cross into the box. Morris ran onto a header that went in off the hands of goalkeeper Nick Rimando.Its awesome playing with two players like that, Morris said about Dempsey and Lodeiro. You make a run, and you know youre going to get the ball.Coupled with Portlands 2-0 loss at D.C. United on Saturday night, the Sounders are five points below the Timbers for the last playoff spot in the Western Conference. The two rivals meet next Sunday in Seattle.Im not sure If its one certain thing, Schmetzer said of about teams play through the last three weekends. But I do believe its their group mentality that makes them play the way theyre playing now.RSLs Joao Plata scored on an uncontested 8-yard shot in the 62nd minute after goalkeeper Stefan Frei bobbled the ball at the top of the box while preparing to kick it downfield. Salt Lakes Yura Movsisyan gained control, and while Frei and the Seattle defenders scrambled, he found Plata running into the area.Coach Jeff Cassar said Real needed more of that kind of thing, as Salt Lake (10-8-7) has won just twice in its last 10 games.I dont think we changed the point of attack nearly enough as we wanted to, Cassar said. Every time we did, we were able to do more of the things we wanted to. You can come up with the best game plans and be tactically sound. But you turn the ball over as cheaply as we did in the first half, nothings going to work. Seattles got a lot of dangerous players in their attack, and they make you defend. We didnt win the battle of making them defend as much as we wanted to.Dempsey, coming off of a hat trick last week at Orlando City, had a chance to clinch the game with a penalty kick in the 82nd minute. But his shot banged off the underside of the crossbar and bounced away from the goalmouth. Celtics Jerseys Online . The Vikings announced Thursday that Priefer will be one of seven holdovers from the previous staff, along with offensive line coach Jeff Davidson, wide receivers coach George Stewart and others. Norv Turner will mark his 30th year of coaching in the NFL as the offensive co-ordinator, as widely reported for weeks, and George Edwards will be the defensive co-ordinator. Cheap Celtics Jerseys . Now that hes hitting streaking teammates with pin-point passes for easy layups, Love is asserting himself as one of the true superstars in the league. http://www.cheapcelticsjerseys.net/ .ca! Hi Kerry, Its another day and here we are looking at another dubious hit to the head. In this case Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky elbowed Saku Koivu in the head about a second after he dished off the puck to a teammate, knocking him unconscious. Its 15 minutes before game time, and Colleen Smith is at the net, front and center for the DePaul volleyball team. The 24-year-old Illinois natives got gum in her mouth and a smile on her face, and shes helping her hitters get in some warm-up swings. Chew, smile, set, repeat.Five years ago, on a different campus, the former high school All-American setter, a freshman at Indiana, kept a different routine. Cough, ache, puke, rest.Smiths life was in danger, not to mention her volleyball career. Her body was attacking itself. She was vomiting blood. Her red blood cell count was half of what it should be. Her lungs collected fluid.Doctors at IU made a rare diagnosis: granulomatosis with polyangiitis, also known as Wegeners granulomatosis -- a disease that drastically slows the flow of blood through the kidneys, lungs, throat and nose. After that came blood transfusions, chemotherapy and dozens of prescriptions.But even as a freshman lying in a hospital bed, Smith plotted her return to volleyball. She thought about it as a sophomore, too, when the Hoosiers coaching staff told her they no longer had a scholarship spot for her. She thought about it each time she was rejected by a program that wooed her as a transfer because the doctors didnt want to take on the risk of a Wegeners patient.Those five years led to this moment: Senior Day. Nov. 13. Her final home game at DePaul.Now third in program history in assists, Smith is still receiving chemotherapy treatments -- just once every six months now -- and is considering a professional career overseas.I just love that winning feeling, she said. It was important for me to get back to that.On this November day, as she flicks the ball behind her to a streaking hitter, she thinks back on all those battles won. Her eyes are on the next pass, well before the hitters spike smacks the ground.Chew, smile, set, repeat. She savors this moment. It is a gift.***Wegeners is rare. That much we know. A 2009 study in Arthritis & Rheumatology estimates that it occurs in about one in every 125,000 people. Others believe it goes widely underdiagnosed and is far more common. Either way, a statistician would tell you the odds of an elite NCAA athlete having Wegeners are minuscule.I feel like its so easy to give up on your dreams and your goals, Smith said, but I knew that volleyball was such a huge impact on my life, and it has truly shaped me into the person that I am today.There are little reminders of what shes gone through at every DePaul home game. Her parents and sisters, who live in the Chicago suburbs, know just how precious each moment on the court is for Smith and never miss a match. She has a red bow, the color chosen for autoimmune disease and Wegeners awareness, in her hair, and she and her teammates have bows on their shoes, too. As her career nears its end with one last Big East game Sunday against Butler in Indianapolis, theres this, too: a single-season program record for wins in the Big East.Before Smith tallied the first of her 4,185 assists (and counting) as a Blue Demon, coach Nadia Edwards was well equipped to bring Smith in despite her disease. Rush University Medical Center in Chicago provided a primary care location that would suit Smiths needs, and DePaul gave Smith a chance to continue competing in a big conference while staying close to home.We knew the talent that she possesssed, but every single day she stepped on the court, she gave us her all, Edwards said. Cheap Celtics Store. Shes been the anchor of our team for the last four years.Those four years werent without obstacles, either, on and off the court. She endured a 3-27 season her second year with the program. Then, this January, she had a Wegeners flare-up. While at dinner with her family, her mouth filled with blood before spouting from her nose. It took her a few months to get back to playing.I was a little surprised because she was doing very well, and she was on medication, said Dr. Roger Rodby, a nephrology specialist at Rush who has worked with Smith the past four years. Of all the diseases I take care of in the autoimmune spectrum, this ones the toughest. Its the one thats hardest to get to go away, and its the most likely to come back.But she came back, too, and its hard to imagine it going any differently. Smith is eternally positive, and playing volleyball trumps all ailments. Earlier in the season, she took an eight-hour chemo treatment on a Monday so she could recover and play DePauls two weekend road matches. She slipped in and out of sleep with her dad and one of her sisters by her side. The picture she took during the treatment, though, belied the difficulties it presented. She gave a beaming smile with a thumbs-up, the Chicago skyline in the background.Somehow, Smith didnt miss a match this season.Its just crazy to think back when I was at Indiana that, basically, a lot of people thought I was never gonna be able to play again, she said. I really do believe that everything happens for a reason, and I found my home here at DePaul. It definitely worked out.Her next home might be in Europe, where the odds are tougher still. Edwards played professionally and said Smiths talent isnt even a discussion. Shes good enough. Its about finding a team that needs a setter and, again, can accommodate her condition. And, isnt already at the cap for the number of American players allowed on its roster. Her dad, Bubba Smith, wants her to do it, no matter how nervous having his daughter that far away might be.But Europe is, thats her dream, he said. Fulfill it. Because every other dream youve had, youve fulfilled it. That would be something, you know? Jim Valvano, whatd he say that time? Every day, youve got to be able to smile, to cry, and thats a fulfilling day.Laugh, think, cry, repeat. Smiths familiar with that routine, too.***Smith locks arms with her mom and dad and walks toward her teammates and coaches. The gum is gone, but the smiles still there. The tears and memories have crept in, too. One of her outside hitters, Myah Reed, barely holds in her sobs.Smith celebrates with DePauls two other seniors. She hugs about two dozen fans -- friends and family -- in the stands. Then she sits down in the bleachers at McGrath-Phillips Arena, her home for the past four years, with that support system surrounding her. Everyone smiles. Cameras flash. There are two games left, but this has a feeling of permanence to it. Its hard not to think of the end.Smith lets herself do that, briefly. But as usual, her thoughts turn from whats happened to whats next.We still have season left, she said.And whatever else comes after it.

TORONTO - When Masai Ujiri and the Raptors hit a crossroads at this time a year ago, evaluating the sustainability of their unexpected turnaround, while weighing the merits of a potential rebuild, the decision to stay the course was aided by a changing landscape in their division. Joel Eriksson Ek Jersey . The Celtics - winners of the Atlantic in five of the last seven seasons - had recently hit the reset button, the Knicks and Nets failed to meet overzealous early-season expectations and the 76ers were, and continue to be, comically terrible by design. Opportunity knocked and Ujiri took advantage. Facing adversity 12 months later, the slumping Raptors find themselves in their most precarious situation since. Still, their woes pale in comparison to the varying degrees of misfortune that plague their neighbours in the division. A recently gutted Celtics team played the role of slump-buster on Saturday. Losers of four straight, the Raptors came into the game in search of the mojo that had fuelled their success throughout 2014. How would we know when theyve gotten their grove back, Dwane Casey was asked just ahead of tip-off. Youll see it, the Raptors coach responded. Youll see it. Everyone will see it. It didnt happen until about midway through the second quarter, but, when it happened, we saw it and we knew. The Raptors team weve become accustomed to - the one that grinds and outworks people - was back, albeit against a watered-down opponent. Plagued by first-quarter flatness, as Casey put it, over recent games, they stumbled out of the gate yet again, outscored after 12 minutes for the ninth time in 11 contests. Then, as suddenly as it vanished, the Raptors got their edge back, besting Boston 90-70 the rest of the way. I thought our defensive mojo was back, Casey said after his team snapped a four-game losing streak in their 109-96 victory over the Celtics. I saw guys moving their feet, cracking down, rebounding, doing the things we needed to do with activity and anticipation. We was tired of it, said James Johnson, who returned to the starting lineup Saturday evening. Everybody buckled in. Everybody took responsibility for what they were doing and we started playing Toronto Raptors defence. Less than halfway into the season, Toronto has the Atlantic all but locked up, almost by default. Saturdays win was their sixth in six games against divisional opponents, giving them a 9 1/2-game lead over Brooklyn in the Atlantic. Bostons fate was sealed during the summer of 2013 when Danny Ainge pulled the plug on the teams aging core, exchanging Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and coach Doc Rivers for younger players, expiring deals and draft picks. Now, that liquidation process is nearing its completion. Over the last month, Ainge has jettisoned Brandan Wright, is in the process of moving Jeff Green and sent long-time Celtics star point guard Rajon Rondo to the Dallas Mavericks while accumulating up to 14 total picks (first and second round) in the next two drafts. In the Celtics and 76ers, this division features two of the most blatantly aggressive tanking franchises in recent memory - maybe ever. Meanwhile, the Nets are stuck in limbo, handcuffed by an aging core, sizeable contracts and an injured point guard (Deron Williams - out indefinitely with a rib ailment). The last-place Knicks - losers of 15 straight - have hit rock bottom, recently ridding themselves of J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert, while Carmelo Anthony contemplates shutting it down for the season. With both mismanaged New York franchises on the hook for the majority of their draft picks over the coming years, neither are in an enviable position in the near future. Expediting the rebuilding process is not easy, but its also not unprecedented. The Celtics won just 24 games in 2006-07 before utilizing the assets they had accumulated to acquire Garnett and Ray Allen, ultimately winning a title the following season. The Raptors themselves are proof that theres no exact science to turning around an ailing franchise. But even as the Raptors struggle to reestablish their defensive identity, make no mistake, any of these other four organizations would trade places with them in a heartbeat. And when was the last time that could be said? Barring an unforeseen fall from grace or a speedy rebuild effort from one of their counterparts, equally unlikely, the Raptors seem poised to maintain control of the Atlantic for years to come. JOHNSON PROMOTION After a series of uninspiring starts over their recent slide, Casey had been mulling over a temporary rotation shake-up. As expected, he pulled the trigger on Saturday, reinstalling James Johnson into the first unit in place of Landry Fields at the small forward position. Fields had started nine of 14 games for the injured DeMar DeRozan, sitting out with a concussion in between. Filling in for Fields, Johnson excelled, averaging 10.4 points, 5.6 rebounds, 1.0 block and 1.4 steals on 62 per cent shooting in five starts last month. Most coaches are hesitant to give away a players starting spot as a result of injury - Casey has long been a proponent of this philosophy - so Fields got the job back upon his return. Ultimately the teams play, primarily in the first quarter and early in the third, forced his hand. Johnson found out about the change when he arrived to their pre-game shootaround less than three hours before tip-off. I came in at the regular time, got my work in, Johnson said. We split off to groups. I went to white squad (the second unit) like usual and coach switched me Logging 36 minutes in his return to the first unit, Johnson recorded a double-double of 15 points and 10 rebounds, giving the Raptors a much-needed energy boost at the position. He covers up a lot of mistakes, said Kyle Lowry, who scored 19 points himself. He covers a lot of floor, a lot of ground. His effort has been unbelievable this season and we need him to keep it up. We love his energy, we love his enthusiastic nature and what he brings to the table. Johnson - a 58-per-cent-shooter and owner of the teams second-best defensive rating - has been one of Torontos most reliable performers on both ends of the floor this season. Still, Casey has been hesitant to increase the versatile forwards role, given his long-standing reputation of trying to do too much, primarily on offence. Slowly, the Raptors coach is coming around to the new and improved Johnson, who has made a concerted effort to play within himself in his second stint with Toronto. I think hes been under control, Casey said ahead of Saturdays game. James plays within himself. Hell do things just out of playing the game that he gets caught up in every once and a while on both ends of the ball, defensively and offensively. Hes becoming more disciplined from that aspect. Ryan Suter Jersey . "Its way better than running gassers, thats for sure," the inside linebacker said Monday, when the Chargers started their third and final week of organized team activities, which are practices in shorts, jerseys and helmets. Jared Spurgeon Jersey .

NEW YORK -- Daniel Carcillo provided the burst of energy the New York Rangers were counting on in Game 7. Clint Capela Jersey . The big goal was quite a bonus. Carcillo gave the Rangers the lead with the first of their two second-period goals, and Henrik Lundqvist did just enough to hold off the Philadelphia Flyers and send New York into the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs with a 2-1 win on Wednesday night. Carcillo was added to the lineup, after he sat out the previous two games, and the move paid instant dividends. He turned a crisp pass into his second goal of the series at 3:06 of the middle frame. "When youre in, you try to do something to stay in, whether it be offensively or bring a lot of energy," Carcillo said. "Thats just what I was trying to do every time I was in this series." Benoit Pouliot stretched the Rangers lead to 2-0, and Lundqvist made it stand up with a 26-save effort one night after New York was beaten 5-2 in Philadelphia to set up the decisive Game 7. "No one was jittery. We all knew what to do," Carcillo said. "On this team, no one was shying away from the big stage." Lundqvist watched the third period of Game 6 from the bench, and started his preparation then for Wednesday. "Coming home last night, I was so disappointed," said Lundqvist, who improved to 4-1 in Game 7s. "But at the same time, I was mad because we couldnt come up with a better performance. To play a Game 7 at home and to win, that was the inspiration. "We played a really strong series. I think we were the better team. We pushed the pace almost every game. We definitely earned this one." The Rangers knocked out the Flyers about 24 hours after being pushed to the limit, improving to 6-0 in Game 7s at Madison Square Garden. New York will face another Metropolitan Division rival, the Pittsburgh Penguins, in the next round starting on Friday. Lundqvist allowed only a third-period goal to Jason Akeson at 4:32. He protected the one-goal lead at 7:25 when he made an awkward save against Flyers captain Claude Giroux. The Rangers mobbed Lundqvist after the final buzzer, while the Flyers consoled their goalie, Steve Mason. Mason, who didnt start until Game 4 because of a concussion he admitted to after the game Wednesday, was sharp in stopping 31 shots. He just couldnt will his club to a complete comeback after the Flyers fell into a 3-2 series hole. "Game 7, lose 2-1, it doesnt get any closer than that," Giroux said. "We did a good job staying in the battle. We have a lot of character in this room, and for a young team I think its great. This is only going to make us stronger." No team won consecutive games in the series. The Rangers, who finished two points ahead of Philadelphia during the regular season, made the most of their home-ice advantage by taking three of four in the Garden. Carcillo scored the all-important first goal off a picture-perfect pass from Mats Zuccarello. Zuccarello threaded the puck with a behind-the-back feed from near the right circle between the legs of Flyers defencemen Andrew MacDonald and Braydon Coburn to Carcillo for the redirection. "Usually those are the toughest ones to pick up. I missed one in Game 4 backdoor," Carcillo said. "To track it through two sets of legs and then to get decent wood on it and see it go in, is a good feeling." Carcillo played for just the third time and the first at home. He had come out of the penalty box less than a minute earlier after serving a penalty for too many men on the ice. The Rangers nearly doubled the lead later in the frame when they mounted a flurry of pressure, only to be stymied by Mason and done in by errant whacks at the puck. But Philadelphia couldnt capitalize on that or on two power plays in the period in which the Flyers were outshot 18-5. "We didnt initiate enough and play with enough aggressiveness as a team," Flyers coach Craig Berube said. "Our game overall, we didnt play our best hockey." New York took a 2-0 lead with 8:14 left in the second when Pouliot also turned a sharp pass into his second of the series. Derick Brassard sent the puck from the right-wing boards into the slot. Pouliot streaked down the middle, snared the puck, and steered it past Mason to send the once-nervous crowd into a towel-waving frenzy. "We had a lot of legs in the second period," forward Brad Richards said. "We rode the fans momentum, killed two big penalties. Every line went out there and was just moving their feet and creating problems for them." The Flyers held an 11-10 shots advantage in the first scoreless opening period of the series. New York again failed to capitalize on the lone power play in the frame, stretching its streak of futility to 21 straight advantages. When the Rangers did pressure Philadelphia, Mason stood tall as he did in winning Game 6. Lundqvist matched Mason at the other end as the Flyers had several stretches of puck possession within the Rangers zone. "He was awesome," Carcillo said. "He is an elite goalie for a reason." NOTES: Carcillo replaced J.T. Miller, who had played in the previous two games. Carcillo is 3-0 in career Game 7s and has scored in two of them. Carcillo had four goals in the regular season in 57 total games with Los Angeles and the Rangers. ... The Flyers dropped to 9-7 in Game 7 after winning their previous three. ... This was the only first-round series that didnt require overtime. James Harden Jersey .com) - Eric Fehr and Marcus Johansson each registered a pair of goals, as Washington spoiled the head coaching debut of Peter Horachek by picking up a 6-2 victory in Toronto on Wednesday. Trevor Ariza Jersey . The Missouri Tigers Defensive End and SEC Defensive player of the year is eligible for the upcoming NFL draft in May.FORT WORTH, Texas - Dustin Johnson had played Colonial only once before, six years ago when he didnt even make it to the final round. In his return to Hogans Alley, Johnson took a one-stroke lead after the first round. Johnson shot a bogey-free 5-under 65 on Thursday, driving a lot of 3-irons off the tees into the fairways and hitting 16 of 18 greens in regulation. "Ive got to keep doing what Im doing," Johnson said. "Ive got a pretty good game plan for the golf course off the tee. So Im going to stick to that, just trying to keep getting birdie looks on every hole." His only birdie on the back nine was a 2-footer at the 177-yard 16th hole. That was enough to lead after his front-side 31 that included a 45-foot birdie putt on the difficult par-4 fifth hole. Hunter Mahan, playing in the group ahead of Johnson, led before a double-bogey 6 at the 433-yard 18th hole for a 66. He was tied for second with Harris English, Tim Wilkinson and Robert Streb. Jimmy Walker, a three-time winner this season, and 20-year-old Dallas native Jordan Spieth were in the group of 10 players at 67. Mahan started eagle-birdie and was already 6 under after a 3-foot birdie on the 178-yard eighth hole. He had two bogeys and two more birdies before his drive at the 18th hole into the right rough, with trees blocking a clear shot to the green. After punching the ball back into the fairway, his approach came settled on the edge of the fringe and he eventually two-putted from 7 feet. "You have to get over it," Mahan said about the disappointing 18th. "Its all about the drive there." Adam Scott, playing as the No. 1 player in the world for the first time, shot 71 after playing his first nine holes at 4-over 39. Scott had bogey-6 on the straight 631-yard 11th hole, his second of the day, when he hit twice from fairway bunkers. After a two-putt from 11 feet at the 433-yard 18th hole, Scott was bogey-free the rest of the way, with consecutive short birdies after making the turn. "I thought I acttually hit plenty of good shots," Scott said. Custom Houston Rockets Jerseys. "All of a sudden, I had the momentum going the way I wanted and managed to hang on for the next few holes." The Australian said he felt the same as he did before this week when he overtook injured Tiger Woods for the top spot in the world ranking. "Theres not a big difference," Scott said. "Its always the first tee nerves of starting a tournament out, but I certainly didnt feel that much different." Johnsons 65 was the highest score to lead after the first round at Hogans Alley since another 65 in 2002. There were opening 62s in two of the previous three Colonials. When he first played at Colonial in 2008, Johnson made the initial cut. But after a 72 in the third round, he was among six more players trimmed to reduce the field to 73 for the final day. Walker, the FedEx Cup points leader, also played a bogey-free round with a tremendous par-saver at the 470-yard fifth hole after hitting his drive left into the rough under trees. With the ball on a hill several inches below his feet, he hit an off-balance shot to the left of the green. He then chipped up over the bunker, and the ball rolled to inside 4 feet of the cup. "I kind of had a shot, and I went for it, he said. "I had a big high cut over the trees, and didnt hit a very good shot, but it came up just short of the green, and made a great up and down there." Matt Kuchar, ranked No. 4 in the world and with a chance to move to the top with a victory, had birdies at Nos. 11 and 12 early in his round. He then had five bogeys before finally getting his only other birdie on his 16th hole, an 11-foot putt on the 437-yard seventh hole, in a 72. That matched his highest score in his 29 career rounds at Colonial, where he finished second last year. Rickie Fowler, who stars in a series of funny commercials for tournament sponsor Crowne Plaza, played with flu-like symptoms and had two triple bogeys in an 80, the worst score in the 123-player invitational field. Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap NFL Jerseys WholesaleNFL Jerseys Outlet Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys China NFL Gear NFL Jerseys Wholesale NFL T-shirts From China ' ' '
