Memphis enters Saturday on its second double-digit losing streak of the season.

The Grizzlies also dropped 11 straight Nov. 11-Dec. 2 and this is the first time the franchise has recorded two double-digit skids in the same season since the 1999-2000 edition based Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Online in Vancouver dropped 11 straight Nov. 16-Dec. 6, 1999 and 12 in a row Feb. 29-March 19, 2000.

Gasol has played 11 games during this skid and scored 22 points when the steak was extended with Friday’s 108-102 loss to the Denver Nuggets. It was his second-highest point total during this stretch, which has seen him shoot 39.4 percent and average 16.6 points.

The Grizzlies rested Gasol once during the streak when Miami beat Memphis last Saturday. Deyonta Davis, who averages 5.5 points, started for Gasol, but is sidelined with a left ankle injury.

Since earning a 120-109 win against Phoenix on Jan. 29, the average margin of defeat has been 13.3 points. Friday’s game was the Grizzlies’ sixth loss by double-digits during the losing streak.

Three of four NBA players from Ames, Iowa were in the building. Barnes and fellow Dallas forward Doug McDermott, along with Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg, all attended Ames High School. Hoiberg went on to play at Iowa State, located in Ames, before 10 NBA seasons. He returned to Iowa State to coach for six seasons.

Dick Gibbs, 69, was the first Ames high school product to play in the NBA (1971-76)

Bogdanovic made a go-ahead short runner from the baseline with 1:06 left in OT, then added a pair of free throws and the Kings beat the Brooklyn Nets 116-111 on Thursday night.

“I’ve said from the beginning of the season that we have great chemistry here,” Bogdanovic said. “It’s really fun to work with all of these guys. We just love to work. It’s nothing else, no secret.”

Gobert scored a season-high 26 points, grabbed 16 rebounds and blocked four shots to help the Utah Jazz beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 116-108 on Friday night in a game that featured three ejections.

His dominance around the basket spread throughout the team. Utah Cheap Kids Jerseys NBA finished with a 46-27 advantage on the glass. The Jazz also outscored the Timberwolves 19-0 in second-chance points and held them to a season-low two offensive rebounds.

Pistons seek to move closer to Heat

The Miami Heat got run out of their own building on Thursday night, but now they will get another chance in a game that is crucial to the Eastern Conference playoff picture.

Drummond will match up with 7-foot, 265-pound Heat center Hassan Whiteside, who is averaging 14.0 points and 11.8 rebounds, including 3.2 on the offensive glass.

Backup Heat center Bam Adebayo, a 6-10, 245-pound rookie, is averaging 7.4 points and 5.5 rebounds in 20.5 minutes. Over 36 minutes, Adebayo’s averages would be 13.0 points and 9.6 rebounds.

All in all, Saturday’s game should be quite a battle in the paint.

On a night when Lonzo Ball made every one of his shots for the Lakers, Isaiah Thomas wanted to make sure his one playful shot at the rookie’s shooting form landed as well.

Thomas, a six-year veteran guard, was asked on Monday after Los Angeles’ victory in Atlanta about what he thinks of Ball’s shot and his infamous technique, now that they are teammates and the rookie guard is shooting well of late. Thomas gave a sly look over toward Ball’s locker to see if he was around and listening — not in a sinister way, but more like he wanted Ball to hear him give the point guard a hard time about his form.

“I mean, it’s ugly as hell,” Thomas said as he began defending Ball’s shooting style. “It’s an ugly shot, but he’s been successful with it his whole life. So you get to the highest level, there is no need to change it. You just got to figure out ways to continue to make it better.”

After Teague left the court, Jazz guard Jae Crowder and Timberwolves coach Tom Thibodeau were issued double technicals for arguing with each other. Crowder was later ejected for picking up his second technical foul with 45.3 seconds remaning.

Timberwolves forward Karl-Anthony Towns also was ejected just before halftime when he was called for his second technical foul for arguing a non-call.

Referee Kane Fitzgerald said after the game that Towns’ first technical Cheap NFL Jerseys USA foul was for dead-ball contact of an elbow to the Crowder’s face. The second technical was for “continuous complaint. Three or four plays in a row he was complaining and a technical foul was given.”

When asked whether he thought Towns’ fouls were justified, Thibodeau Basketball Cheap Jerseys only said: “Let’s just say I was very disappointed in the way the game was managed.”

Timberwolves forward Jimmy Butler, who is sidelined due to surgery on his right knee, approved of Teague’s fiery play.

the Panthers couldn’t cash in and went three-and-out.

Eagles 3, Panthers 3 Neither team has found the end zone yet, but the game is lively and both quarterbacks are moving the ball fairly well, This time, Newton set up Graham Gano for a 39-yard Cheap Retro NBA Jerseys field goal.

Eagles 3, Panthers 0 With the Panthers failing to take advantage of the early turnover, Wentz recovered and drove Philly into field goal range, with Jake Elliott putting his team on the board first.

The ageless Julius Peppers strip-sacked Wentz on the game’s first drive, getting his 150th career sack in the process.

It was reported after the game that Brown was upset at the quarterback over his role in shaping the team’s decision to stay in the tunnel during the national anthem in Week 3. Brown disagreed with Roethlisberger’s handling of the matter.

Do I think Ben was purposely not throwing at Antonio Brown because they didn’t agree on the way to handle the protest? No.

In fact, they got back on track Sunday. Brown had a huge game in the loss. However, it’s not great when two of the Steelers best players can’t get on the same page.

Are the Steelers finished? No. But we are starting to see some fracturing in the locker room around a quarterback who has contemplated retirement and has now openly questioned his abilities. The Steelers have enough talent to win the AFC North, but how far they go beyond that will depend in part on what Cheap Soccer Jerseys Free Shipping happens in that locker room.

Patriots vs. Buccaneers 2017: Start time, TV schedule for ‘Thursday Night Football’

Tom Brady has thrown for more yards than anyone else in the NFL, but a Swiss cheese defense has his Patriots languishing at 2-2. New England will have the chance to get back on track and avoid a rare two-game losing streak when it travels to Tampa for a Thursday Night Football showdown with the Buccaneers starting at 8:30 p.m. ET and broadcast live on NFL Network/CBS in local markets (live stream).

Brady is on pace to set a new single-season passing mark after throwing for a shade under 350 yards per game in the Patriots’ otherwise unimpressive start. He’ll square off against a Buccaneer defense that got shredded by Case Keenum for 369 yards and three touchdowns in Week 3. Will the future Hall of Famer do enough to overcome New England’s sieve of a passing defense?

General manager Chris Ballard said Wednesday that Luck took a cortisone shot and is not going to practice this week.

Johnson said playing a division opponent makes the preparation a bit easier with only one day of on-the-field practice.

It definitely helps, Johnson said. It definitely helps playing in the division on a short week against the Raiders. They know us, we know them. It will be a knock-out, drag-out game. It will come down to the fourth quarter, of course.

Injuries play a factor during the quick turnaround, and both teams have players in doubt at key positions.

Chiefs wide receiver Albert Wilson did not practice Tuesday due to a sprained knee, putting him in danger of missing his second game in a row. Kansas City wide receiver Tyreek Hill, who left the Sunday game with a neck injury, appears ready to play Thursday night after practicing in full Tuesday.

New England has the worst passing defense in the league

The Patriots got bad news long before the game began when Rob Gronkowski suffered a thigh injury in Wednesday’s practice. He’s inactive for this game, leaving Tom Brady without his best offensive weapon.

Through four games, Tom Brady has the Patriots on a record-setting pace when it comes to passing offense. The problem is that his defense is making every other quarterback it faces look like, well, Tom Brady.

New England has the worst passing defense in the league, allowing opponents to post a 116.5 passer rating to start the season. Brady, despite leading the NFL in passing yards and touchdowns, has a 116.6 rating. In 2017, the Patriots are getting an unpleasant idea of what it’s like to face their own amazing quarterback, week in and week out.

The idea that Pence’s departure was coordinated was supported by the president later in the afternoon, when he tweeted he had asked Pence to leave if any players kneeled in protest during the national anthem. Trump said again Monday morning that the trip had been planned.

Had players not kneeled, the administration could have claimed some meaningless victory.

But players from the 49ers have been kneeling from the beginning, last season with Colin Kaepernick and continuing this season without him. Niners safety Eric Reid wrote an editorial in the New York Times the week after Trump’s comments explaining that they were protesting the very real issue of police brutality. He also reminded anyone who would listen that they decided to take knee after a conversation with former Green Beret and NFL player Nate Boyer, who suggested the gesture as a way to still be respectful of the men Cheap Discount Jerseys and women who serve this country in the armed forces.

Florida baseball player slams 2 home runs on the same day in 2 separate games

Florida and Wake Forest have weathered the singularly most disruptive best of three tilt in this year’s super regional round. They’ve been drowned by rain, drowned by more rain, and grown extremely irate in the process. All three of their super regional games have undergone weather delays, a dragging influence on players’ collective psyches as they try to push through a tough super regional.

I’m going to be the first guy to do both, Greene told Evan Barnes of the Los Angeles Daily News. I love being able to hit and win games for the team or get on the mound and just shove it.

That the Padres are on this list isn’t a surprise. They haven’t been known as a shortstop factory over the years, and they’ve struggled mightily in recent seasons. But their commitment to the art of avoiding starting-caliber shortstops is admirable. If you want to provide your own drum roll, here are the best shortstop seasons for the Padres in the last 20 years:

Greene already has 93-98 mph fastball, the pitch earning 70 grades due to the combination of velocity and movement, wrote John Sickels of our Minor League Ball in March. He generates the heat with little effort and given his youth and build, even more velocity is possible as he matures. He already has a plus curveball and commands it better than most pitchers his age. His change-up is not as refined as the first two pitches but should be at least MLB average in time and very possibly plus.

The first overall pick this year was high school shortstop Royce Lewis, who the Twins nabbed to start the draft.

The Rangers blew a 7-run lead by allowing 13 unanswered Indians runs

Remember in 2016 when the Rangers had all kinds of luck on their side, and it helped them post a 36-11 record in one-run games? Well, 2017 has been about trying to restore balance to the universe, and the scales it’s using for that task hit the Rangers right in the face Monday night.

There is only one correct ballot to use when voting for the National League’s all-stars, and Grant Brisbee wrote it. Feel free to use it if you want to be right.
The Cubs ended up holding off the Nationals for a 5-4 win to kick off their series, and they can thank Javier Baez’s defense for helping them to that. Baez made two impressive grabs during the game, and who knows what might have happened if he hadn’t.

Florida, on the other hand, features just one batter currently averaging above .300, Nelson Maldonado at .303; his on base percentage is an impressive .449, however. The Gators don’t necessarily play small ball they’ve bashed in a handful of home runs in the super regionals and CWS so far but they house nowhere near the power as LSU. Their most trustworthy bat, JJ Schwarz, has a tendency to fall dead asleep at times, forcing guys up and down the lineup to handle run duties. Deacon Liput, Dalton Guthrie, Ryan Larson, and Austin Langworthy have all broken out as separate game heroes, with last season’s star, Jonathan India, virtually disappearing from discussion.

Both clubs have put together solid seasons of work, fought their way through a shredder of a postseason, and earned their spots in the College World Series best of three final. They’ve met already this season, with Florida taking a 2-1 series win in Gainesville.

But still, the power stats don’t really matter at all. This series will be won or lost at the plate, but we shouldn’t expect an abundance of scoring.

John McCain asked James Comey incoherent questions, then blamed the D-Backs’ game

Arizona Senator John McCain was one of the many asking questions of former FBI Director James Comey earlier on Thursday following his testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee. McCain’s questions stood out, though, because they barely made any sense, to the point where Twitter started wondering where his head was at.

Saturday saw the return of The Freeze, who yet again embarrassed another fan, who inexplicably wore the same outfit as the guy from Friday. The Freeze stumbled at the start of the race, the fan gave his best shot he didn’t even celebrate early, learning from the previous guy’s mistakes and the fan still lost.

According to Cut4, The Freeze’s real identity is a Braves grounds crew member named Nigel Talton, who ran track at Kennesaw State. So unless you’re a track runner in disguise, or if Segways are legal in Beat The Freeze, there’s a good chance you will never beat him.

Brendan McKay may be college baseball’s most complete player, with the ability to pitch and hit well. His tools are complemented by the hard-hitting Drew Ellis, who bats immediately after McKay in the order a deadly duo to have to deal with so early in the Cards’ lineup.

McKay’s arm and bat tandem earned him the John Olerud award this year, given to the best two-way player in the country. He’s recorded 385 strikeouts in his career, a program record, and this year knocked out 17 home runs, and if a pitcher tries to work around him, Ellis is there waiting just behind.

NBA trade rumors: Carmelo Anthony won’t waive his no-trade clause for Cavaliers

Stop throwing out that potential Kyrie Irving-for-Carmelo Anthony trade. It is not happening. The idea that Anthony would waive his no-trade clause to go to a Cavs team without Irving and possibly with only one season with LeBron James was absurd already, but the idea has been all but refuted in the last 24 hours.

According to the New York Post, Anthony will waive his no-trade clause only to go to the Rockets:

Wiggins believes he’s worth it and said as much at the adidas Basketball LVL3 event this week. When asked if he was worth the max-level rookie extension that would pay him up to $148 million over five years, he was succinct and to the point.

I definitely do, he said (via SI.com). Nothing less.

Wiggins is currently locked up through the 2018 season but is eligible for a rookie max extension now. The deadline to get the deal done is Oct. 16.

Head coach and president of basketball operations Tom Thibodeau said recently the team is looking to lock up Wiggins, who averaged a career-high 23.6 points in 2016-17 along with 4.0 rebounds and 2.3 assists. He is still just 22.

Wiggins would not talk about trade rumors that linked him to Kyrie Irving and the Cavaliers this week, but was very open about his team’s chances this year.

We have great pieces, we added great pieces, and we have a great coaching staff, he said. I think this year is the year.

Kyrie Irving went ‘consecutive days’ without speaking to Cavs teammates, report says

Kyrie Irving’s disconnection with his team dates back further than initially believed.

It became increasingly apparent that the guard wanted out of Cleveland when he stopped talking to his Cavaliers teammates amid the team’s postseason run.

ESPN reported the deal includes a fourth-year player option for Wall, plus a 15 percent trade kicker. Wall confirmed the deal using the video platform Uninterrupted.

Wall, a four-time All-Star, just completed his seventh season in Washington, his most productive yet for the Wizards (23.1 points, 10.7 assists and 4.2 rebounds per game). For his career, he averages 18.8 points, 9.2 assists and 4.4 rebounds a game.

Wall was able to get the deal from Washington by virtue of making the third-team All-NBA team in 2017, the first time in his career. Wall joins players like James Harden in Houston and Stephen Curry in Golden State with his very own supermax deal.

With the extension in place, the Wizards locked up Wall for at least the next five seasons with that player option coming in the 2022-23 season. Washington will pay more than $90 million for Wall, Bradley Beal and Otto Porter Jr. in 2019-20 and it won’t get any cheaper after that but this is what it costs to keep a young core together.

The reason why I’m progressing is because it’s all about this. It’s not about clubbing. It’s not about going out. It’s not about anything but me progressing and making this happen, Mason Jr. said. My whole focus this past year has been making this shoe thing happen and it happened. I can’t say I gave ball all that. I cheated the game a little bit because I was super talented, but I was able to get by because of my talent.
