Marvin Bagley III dominated at Duke Youth Mike Hughes Jersey , while fellow freshman Michael Porter Jr. barely saw action at Missouri due to injury. Yet theyll likely be the first forwards to hear their names called during Thursdays draft.

Bagley is a possible No. 1 overall pick and double-double machine with a long frame. But many considered Porter to be the top NBA prospect in last years class as he works to prove hes past the back injury that required surgery and limited his college career to just three games.

Heres a look of the top forwards in the draft:

MARVIN BAGLEY III

Bagley lived up to all expectations, being named The Associated Press player of the year in the Atlantic Coast Conference and a first-team All-American .

STRENGTHS: The 6-foot-11 forward checks a lot of boxes: athleticism, inside-out ability, length. He averaged 21 points and 11.1 rebounds while shooting 61 percent from the floor and nearly 40 percent from 3-point range. He has good touch around the rim Nate Solder Jersey Giants , the ability to shoot over defenders and was a strong finisher.

CONCERNS: Bagley is still developing defensively, particularly when it comes with what is happening away from the ball. He also tends to be too left-hand reliant at times and needs to improve going the other way.

MICHAEL PORTER JR.

The injury creates plenty of uncertainty and makes the 6-10 forward a bit of a wild card, one who could return top-of-the-draft value for a mid-lottery price.

STRENGTHS: Porter was considered by many as last years top recruit with his scoring, playmaking ability and athleticism. He was a McDonalds All-American in high school after averaging 36.2 points and 13.6 rebounds per game during his senior year.

CONCERNS: Theres little to evaluate with Porter against college competition considering he was hurt minutes into the season opener. He didnt play again until the postseason. Its unclear if the injury will limit his ceiling in any way.

MILES BRIDGES

Michigan States sophomore is a versatile lottery prospect in a pro-ready 6-7 body.

STRENGTHS: Bridges did a lot of things well last year while averaging 17.1 points Youth Houston Texans Jerseys , 7.0 rebounds and 2.7 assists. Hes strong enough to both tussle with bigger players and overpower perimeter forwards. And he was excellent at the foul line (.853) to cash in when drawing contact.

CONCERNS: Bridges needs to continue honing his perimeter skills. He shot nearly 39 percent from 3-point range as a freshman, but slid to 36 percent last year.

MIKAL BRIDGES

The 6-7 junior swingman developed into a potential top-10 pick for national champion Villanova.

STRENGTHS: Bridges offers the desired combination of 3-point shooting and defensive ability, a valuable package in todays NBA. Bridges shot nearly 44 percent from behind the arc. He also has the length to be a disruptive defender after leading the Wildcats with 61 steals.

CONCERNS: Bridges needs to add some more strength to a lean 209-pound frame. He also blended in offensively on a deep and efficient offense, so he didnt need to show a lot when it came to creating his own shot.

KEVIN KNOX

The 6-9 freshman out of Kentucky brings a stretch-4 skillset with good size and shooting range Youth Taron Johnson Jersey , making him a possible lottery pick.

STRENGTHS: Knox has NBA shooting range, fluid offensive moves and the ability to get out in transition. He showed his high ceiling with 34 points on 11-for-17 shooting with five 3-pointers in a win at West Virginia in January.

CONCERNS: He was a bit of a streaky shooter at times who hit just 34 percent of his 3-pointers. He also could be a tougher rebounder; he had only two double-figure rebounding outputs in 37 games compared to 13 games with four or fewer boards.

OTHERS TO WATCH

KOSTAS ANTETOKOUNMPO: The long 6-10 forward from Dayton aims to join his All-Star brother Giannis in the NBA, though hes a project who needs time to develop and get stronger.

KEITA BATES-DIOP: The Ohio State junior with a 7-3 wingspan made himself a possible first-rounder with a big season that included being named Big Ten player of the year.

JUSTIN JACKSON: Marylands 6-7 sophomore could potentially play at small forward or as an undersized power forward with a 7-3 wingspan, though the likely second-rounder missed most of last season with a shoulder injury.

MOE WAGNER: The 6-11 junior helped Michigan reach the NCAA championship game with his inside-out versatility . Hes a likely second-round prospect.

The Indiana Pacers saw Aaron Holiday as a perfect fit even before Thursday nights NBA Draft. They liked his scoring potential and his commitment to defense. They were impressed by his basketball wits and his familys athletic successes. And Youth Royce Freeman Jersey , they figured, he could make a smooth transition from college to the pros by blending into the Pacers locker room culture.

So when they finally got a chance to make an offseason move, the decision-makers didnt hesitate to take a potential point guard of the future.

.tpClipInfo > * { display: none !important; } .tpPlayer { display: none !important; } .tpReleaseList > * { display: none !important; } .tpReleaseModel > * { display: none !important; } .tpNavigation > * { display: none !important; } .tpSearch > * { display: none !important; } .tpCategoryModel > * { display: none !important; } .tpHeader > * { display: none !important; } .tpCategoryList > * { display: none !important; } Hes a tough guy, he prides himself on playing on the defensive end of the floor and he comes from a successful basketball family, coach Nate McMillan said after adding Holiday with the No. 23 overall pick. He was the guy we had at the top of our board.

The only problem was McMillan and president of basketball operations Kevin Pritchard never got to see the 6-foot-1, 185-pound UCLA star up close in Indy.

McMillan said he was didnt know why Holiday didnt make it to Indianapolis for a pre-draft workout, and neither Holiday nor Pritchard provided an explanation either.

But Pacers scouts met with Holiday at the draft combine and did enough homework to know passing on Holiday so late in the draft probably would have been a mistake for a team needing more scoring help now and a potential void if Indianas top two point guards become free agents next summer.

The 21-year-old Holiday brings a solid resume to a team hes already has some familiarity with.

Indianas two draft picks last year Jaleel Scott Jersey Ravens , T.J. Leaf and Ike Anigbogu, also played at UCLA. So did starting point guard Darren Collison, a college teammate of Jrue Holiday, one of Aaron Holidays two older brothers who currently play in the NBA. Collison, who turns 32 in August, can become a free agent next summer.

We look at Darren (Collison) and Holiday and see a lot of similarities, Pritchard said. We see speed. We see elite shooting and we were shocked he (Holiday) was there.

Holiday averaged 20.3 points Youth James Daniels Jersey , 5.8 assists and 1.3 steals while shooting 42.2 percent on 3-pointers last season, becoming the first Bruins player to lead the Pac-12 in scoring since former Pacers star Reggie Miller in 1985-86. Holiday was named first-team all-conference and was chosen to the Pac-12s all-defensive team.

What really sold the Pacers on him, though, was how they believed he would mesh in a locker room brimming with confidence and hope after last years surprise season.

Most analysts thought the Pacers would be a lottery team after trading All-Star Paul George to Oklahoma City for shooting guard Victor Oladipo and backup forward Domantas Sabonis in July.

Instead, Oladipo made his first All-Star appearance, led Indiana to 48 wins and was named one of three finalists for the NBAs Most Improved Player award. The Pacers even pushed eventual Eastern Conference champion Cleveland to a seventh game in the playoffs.

Sabonis also emerged as a valuable piece off the bench in his second NBA season, and they expect 22-year-old center Myles Turner to improve heading into next season.

Somebody whos going to come in and play hard Youth John Kelly Jersey , a playmaker who shoots the ball and a hard worker, Holiday said, describing what the Pacers are getting.

Indiana also took 6-9, 212-pound forward Alize Johnson, who averaged a double-double in both seasons he played at Missouri State, at No. 50 overall. The 22-year-old Johnson averaged 15.0 points last season and finished fifth nationally in rebounds (11.6) and eighth nationally in double-doubles (20) after starting his prep career as a 5-9 point guard.

Holiday could be another critical piece for a team facing a potentially intriguing offseason.

Pritchard confirmed backup point guard Cory Joseph already has decided to return to Indy next season. The Pacers also could exercise team options on guards Lance Stephenson and Joe Young. Starting forward Thaddeus Young, meanwhile Youth Detroit Lions Hats , continues to wrestle with a decision to stay with the Pacers for $13.7 million or test free agency. Pritchard wants him back.

Indiana also could have as much as $30 million to play with in free agency and enough flexibility to invest in the trade market. Pritchard said they considered offers during the draft and acknowledged the team was hunting one unidentified player before deciding the cost would be too prohibitive.

Besides, Pritchard considers doesnt want to do anything to break up the team chemistry and he believes Holidays presence will work just fine in that role.

I think hes confident but my gut feeling is that he knows he doesnt know everything yet, Pritchard said when asked why hed fit in. We love when a guy says, `I want to be great and Ill do whatever it takes to be great.

Two young starters searching for consistency will try to find it Wednesday night in the rubber game of a three-game series between the San Diego Padres and St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium in St. Louis.

Padres left-hander Eric Lauer (2-4 Justin Bethel Jersey Falcons , 6.64 ERA) is undergoing on-the-job training with mostly painful results, while Cardinals right-hander Luke Weaver (3-5, 4.35) has won once in his last 10 starts, struggling to put hitters away and frequently running up high pitch counts.

The last start for each summarized their seasons. Lauer suffered a 4-0 loss Friday night in Miami, while Weaver was no-decisioned in a 7-6, 10-inning victory that same evening in Cincinnati as each failed to command the strike zone.

Lauer DJ Moore Jersey Panthers , who is in the majors because Bryan Mitchell (0-3, 7.08) was horribly ineffective, has allowed a whopping 81 baserunners (57 hits, 24 walks) over 39 1/3 innings in nine starts.

Seven of those walks occurred in Miami, where Lauer threw 111 pitches and gave up three runs in a five-inning stint. Lauer at least managed to minimize damage, escaping a bases-loaded spot in the fifth without ceding extra runs.

It was a good learning experience for me Youth D.J. Fluker Jersey , Lauer said to MLB.com. And a good mental sign for me that (manager Andy Green) was comfortable leaving me in in those situations and letting me get that chance to grow. Being able to work through those tough situations is something I need to do.

Lauer was shelled in a 9-5 loss to St. Louis at Petco Park on May 11, allowing four homers and six runs over 2 1/3 innings before getting hooked.

Weaver, who pitched well over the last two months of the 2017 season, came out of the gate strong in 2018 with two wins in his first three starts. But Weaver has lasted seven innings just two times in his last 10 outings, taxing a bullpen that hasnt exactly been a model of consistency.

The Reds touched Weaver for seven hits, five walks and four runs in five-plus innings on Friday Authentic Customized Texans Jerseys , but only a blown save by Bud Norris in the ninth prevented Weaver from notching a win.

Today was a tough one with the weather conditions and the rain, with it getting a little muddy, Weaver said to MLB.com. It is one of those where you have to put your stuff down and grind through it and make some good pitches.

Weaver has stumped San Diego (32-37) in both career outings, winning both and not allowing a run over 12 innings.

The Padres evened this series Tuesday night as their bullpen checked the Cardinals (36-29) on five hits in a 4-2 victory. Matt Strahm and submarining right-hander Adam Cimber combined to retire the first 15 St. Louis hitters.

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said the difference between Cimber and Strahm, a left-hander who touched 94 mph with his fastball, was difficult for his hitters.

That was unique stuff from the right side Youth Patrick Omameh Jersey , Matheny said of Cimber. Most of the time, hes using the (arm) angle to hit the top of the zone. Its certainly like an upshoot.

Quin Snyder walked into his news conference after Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals with a stoic look Youth Shaquem Griffin Jersey , slowly rubbing his forehead, barely if ever cracking anything that would resemble a smile.

And he was on the winning side.

This much is clear about the Utah Jazz: They are not surprising themselves by being in this position. A team that was written off by Vegas oddsmakers and alleged experts coming into the season after losing Gordon Hayward in free agency won 48 games, ousted reigning MVP Russell Westbrook and Oklahoma City in the first round, and now have the Houston Rockets in a bit of trouble.

The Jazz stole home-court from Houston with a win on Wednesday night, and now look to take a 2-1 lead when the series shifts to Salt Lake City for Game 3 on Friday night.

When guys have confidence in each other, it allows them, I think, the confidence individually to step up Youth Michael Gallup Jersey , Snyder said.

Confidence is not an issue for the Jazz.

Even on a night where Donovan Mitchell shot 6 for 21 and fellow rookie backcourt starter Royce ONeale shot 2 for 5, the Jazz won thanks largely to a great start and a great bench. Utahs reserves outscored Houstons 41-22 in Game 2 and that, combined with a 27-point night from Joe Ingles, was enough for the Jazz.

Theres a pair of Game 3s on the schedule Friday, both out West, and the other being Golden State going to New Orleans. The Warriors lead that matchup 2-0, the 11th time in Golden States last 14 series that theyve opened with a pair of victories.

No pressure for us, New Orleans star Anthony Davis said. We just go out there and play Cheap Brian O'Neill Jersey , have fun, enjoy the moment and embrace it. The rest will take care of itself. Were going to make shots here at home and its going to be a lot tougher for them.

Even down 2-0, the Pelicans insist that they can play freely.

Same goes for the Jazz.

Hardly anyone outside of Salt Lake City a few months ago probably expected the Jazz to be in the second round of these playoffs, or to have grabbed home-court away from Houston. Snyder never conceded anything, though, and the Jazz holdovers from the Hayward years say the franchise has improved even in what was supposed to be a transition year.

I feel like were a better team, Jazz center Rudy Gobert said.

A look at Fridays games:

WARRIORS AT PELICANS

Warriors lead 2-0. Game 3, 8 p.m. EDT Trent Murphy Jersey Bills , ESPN.

NEED TO KNOW: While Warriors star Stephen Curry is back from a five-week injury layoff and is expected to start Game 3, New Orleans looked far more competitive after Currys return in Game 2. New Orleans had won nine straight their last five regular season games and a first-round sweep of third-seeded Portland before a Game 1, 22-point drubbing. New Orleans regrouped for Game 2 and lost by just five points. Of course, we wanted to get one up there, but I think the thing that we took out of it was: Game 1, we got punched in the mouth and Game 2 we came back and responded, Pelicans All-Star forward Anthony Davis said. We didnt win, but we showed a lot of great signs and Game 3 well be back at home.

KEEP AN EYE ON: Warriors forward Draymond Green and Pelicans guard Rajon Rondo. Both veteran players have demonstrated a proclivity toward engaging in mind games and were nose-to-nose at one point in Game 2. Rondo also grabbed the ball and wiped his sweat on it before one Greens free throws (which Green made anyway).

INJURY UPDATE: Warriors wing player Patrick McCaw hasnt played since the end of March because of a lumbar spine bruise. It remains unclear when hell be ready. Curry has been back for only one game from his sprained left knee. After scoring 28 points in 27 minutes off the bench on Tuesday night Ryan Jensen Jersey Elite , he appears healthy and ready for an expanded role.

PRESSURE IS ON: The Pelicans even if Davis denies his team is worried about the prospect of a virtually insurmountable 3-0 series deficit to the defending champs.

ROCKETS AT JAZZ

Series tied 1-1. Game 3, 10:30 p.m. EDT, ESPN.

NEED TO KNOW: Adversity, meet the Rockets. A team that had winning streaks of 11, 14 and 17 games in the regular season has now ceded home-court advantage to the Jazz. Its not panic time for the NBAs No. 1 overall seed yet its only 1-1 but Houston must expect Mitchell to shoot better at home in Game 3 than he did on the Rockets home floor in Game 2.

KEEP AN EYE ON: Jazz F Joe Ingles. He has been superb in these playoffs, with three 20-point games already (as compared to having only two in the final two months of the regular season). The Aussie is playing with enormous confidence right now.

INJURY UPDATE: Jazz PG Ricky Rubio (hamstring) remains out.

PRESSURE IS ON: Utah. The Jazz know all theyve done is win one game. Giving the series lead back to Houston in Game 3 would make the challenge of knocking off the Rockets incredibly daunting.

Ettore Messina was screaming at the Spurs Kemoko Turay Jersey Colts , and Manu Ginobili loved it. Before Gregg Popovich, Ginobili played in Italy for Messina, and on Sunday he delivered a throwback performance for his old coach to save the Spurs season.

Experiencing a flashback to his days playing for Messina in the Euroleague in his early 20s, the 40-year-old Ginobili scored 10 of his 16 points in the fourth quarter to help San Antonio beat the Golden State Warriors 103-90. The Spurs avoided a series sweep as Popovich missed his second straight game following the death of his wife, Erin, on Wednesday.

In his 16th season in the NBA and perhaps the final home game of his career, Ginobili rebounded from a scoreless effort in Game 3 to help Messina capture his first playoff victory as a coach, albeit an unofficial one.

For moments when he talks to the rest of the team, or when he gets upset and he yells at us Authentic Customized Cowboys Jerseys , a lot of flashbacks, Ginobili said, chuckling. Hes very strict and he wants the team to play his way, so whenever we stopped executing the way we should have, the old himself comes back. It was good to see him coaching on this stage. Good memories.

Ginobili played for Messina while both were with Virtus Bologna in 2000-02.

Kevin Durant had 34 points and 13 rebounds for the Warriors, who can wrap up the series in Game 5 at home Tuesday.

You have got to give them a lot of credit, Golden State forward Draymond Green said. They came out and they probably played with more intensity this game than they did the entire series.

LaMarcus Aldridge had 22 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Spurs, but they were willed to the finish by Ginobili, who has said he will decide in the offseason if he will return for a 17th season.

Ginobili was 3 for 4 in the final quarter Youth Phillip Gaines Jersey , including making both of his 3-point attempts, and did not have a turnover in 6 1/2 minutes.

I am so happy for him, Messina said. Im so happy. I think he deserves everything that is happening to him in his life and his career.

Golden State outscored San Antonio 29-21 in the third quarter and went on a 13-5 run beginning two minutes into the fourth quarter to pull within 88-86 with 6 minutes remaining after trailing by as many as 17.

Aldridge banked in a 3-pointer with 4:22 remaining to stop the Warriors run.

It was kind of frustrating, Green said. We played great defense and he throws something up like that.

Ginobili then took over with a pair of 3-pointers in the final minutes.

I smiled when he made that corner 3 right in front of us at the end of the game, Golden State coach Steve Kerr said. It was just so typical Manu. Forty years old and 16 points and hits the clinching 3. Hes Manu. Thats what he does.

The Spurs were 15 for 28 on 3-pointers on Sunday after shooting just 26 percent in the opening three games. The Warriors were 7 for 28.

It was a do-or-die game, make it happen or go home, and I think every guy played with that mentality, that focus, and we ended up getting it done tonight Mike White Jersey Cowboys , Aldridge said.

Aside from Durant, only Klay Thompson (12) and Shaun Livingston (10) scored in double figures for the Warriors.

Rudy Gay scored 14 points for San Antonio, Dejounte Murray had 12 and Kyle Anderson added 10.

TIP-INS

Warriors: Livingston played despite spraining his left ankle late in the Warriors Game 3 victory. Livingston played 21 minutes. Golden State PG Stephen Curry remained seated behind the teams bench as he continues to rehabilitate a sprained left knee. Curry is expected to be available for the second round. Andre Iguodala picked up his fourth foul with 7:56 remaining in the third quarter, but picked up just one more foul for the remainder of the game.

Spurs: Ginobili played in his 217th playoff game, breaking a tie with Shaquille ONeal for sixth in league history. Ginobili also passed Reggie Miller for third in career 3-pointers in playoff history. Ray Allen holds the record with 385 3-pointers, followed by LeBron James (337), Ginobili (321) and Miller (320). Murray was 3 for 3 on 3-pointers in the first half, the most 3s made in the playoffs without a miss by a Spurs player since Steve Kerr (2003) and Patty Mills (2014) were 4 for 4 in a half.

WERE OK

Durant was asked if the Warriors were downhearted following the loss because their locker room was so quiet following their first loss in the series.

We were good, Durant said. I guess everybody was just quiet in the locker room while you were in there Browns Authentic Jerseys , getting ready, putting on their clothes, getting ready to leave. What, you want us to be in there throwing champagne around?

OUCH

Ginobili took a knee to the thigh in the fourth quarter, but remained in the game after dropping to the court in pain.

Quad contusion, one of hundreds all career long, Ginobili said. It hurts at the time, maybe tomorrow its going to hurt a little bit. Well see how bad or not bad it is for the next game.

Al Horford has played in four Game 7s. Jason Terry has been in three Youth Los Angeles Chargers Hats , his teams winning them all.

For them, this is old hat.

For just about everyone else whos had any role in this Boston-Milwaukee series, however, this is new or relatively new territory. The ultimate game awaits the Bucks and Celtics on Saturday night, when their Eastern Conference first-round series ends on Bostons home floor the winner moving into the second round to face the Philadelphia 76ers, the loser going home for the summer.

.tpClipInfo > * { display: none !important; } .tpPlayer { display: none !important; } .tpReleaseList > * { display: none !important; } .tpReleaseModel > * { display: none !important; } .tpNavigation > * { display: none !important; } .tpSearch > * { display: none !important; } .tpCategoryModel > * { display: none !important; } .tpHeader > * { display: none !important; } .tpCategoryList > * { display: none !important; } Were going to be in a tough position, Milwaukee guard Eric Bledsoe said. Weve just got to come out and fight. Weve just got to find a way.

The Celtics have been in more Game 7s than any franchise in NBA history. This will be the 32nd such game for Boston, which has gone 22-9 in its previous ones. Milwaukee is going to Game 7 for the 10th time; the Bucks franchise is 2-7 so far in those.

Super exciting, said Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon Taven Bryan Jersey Jaguars , when asked about how he feels about making it to what will be his first Game 7. This is what you prepare for the whole season, training camp, the offseason, it all builds up to this. Weve got to come out and play with energy and not get out of character.

The Celtics won a Game 7 last season against Washington in the second round, albeit with quite a different roster. Theres four members of the current Boston rotation Horford, Jaylen Brown, Terry Rozier and Marcus Smart who played for the Celtics in that game, and the moment clearly wasnt too big for them. That foursome shot a combined 13 for 22 in that matchup.

We have a lot of new pieces, and even for some guys that were (with Boston last year) M.J. Stewart Jersey Buccaneers , its different, Horford said. Game 7s are fun.

Boston reserves Aron Baynes and Shane Larkin have a little taste of Game 7s past as well: They were on opposite sides of the San Antonio-Dallas deciding game in 2014, both playing a few minutes off the bench, neither scoring.

For Milwaukee, Terry was part of Game 7 wins in his 20s and 30s, and now will aim to be part of one in his 40s. Bledsoe appeared in his only Game 7 to date six years ago, and most of the rest of the Bucks have never been on this sort of stage.

Both teams are 3-0 at home in this series, and the Celtics obviously hope that form holds on Saturday at TD Garden.

Our guys get to experience a Game 7, Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. Which Billy Price Jersey Elite , again, we didnt want. But its a Game 7 in TD Garden. Its what you play for. It should be what youre most excited about, what you work for all summer, what you work for all year. Its a blast.

A look at the Bucks-Celtics first-round series finale:

BUCKS AT CELTICS

Series tied 3-3. Game 7, 8 p.m. EDT, TNT.

NEED TO KNOW: Home teams still win Game 7s about 80 percent of the time, an obvious good sign for the Celtics, but in five of the last six seasons a road team has prevailed once. If Milwaukee pulls this off, the Bucks will become the sixth No. 7 playoff seed since 1984 to eliminate a No. 2 seed and would end the NBAs longest drought without a series win. The Bucks havent been to the second round since 2001.

KEEP AN EYE ON: Bucks F Giannis Antetokounmpo decided he needed to be more aggressive before Game 6 Youth New York Jets Jerseys , then led the team with 31 points and 14 rebounds to help Milwaukee avoid elimination. A Game 7 win especially one in a place as storied as Boston would only accelerate Antetokounmpos rise toward superstardom, if he isnt there already.

PRESSURE IS ON: Anyone who tries a 3-pointer. These teams are fairly reliant on the long ball, and they have struggled in Games 5 and 6 to get anything going from beyond the arc. The teams combined to shoot 19 for 64 from beyond the arc in Game 5 and 18 for 62 in Game 6, part of the reason why neither club has reached the 100-point mark since Game 4.

INJURY UPDATE: Bucks C John Henson (back) has missed the last four games.

Playing basketball seemed trivial to the Spurs following the death of Erin Popovich. They competed as best they could Thursday night. It just wasnt enough against Golden State Youth Carolina Panthers Jerseys , again.

Kevin Durant had 26 points, nine rebounds and six assists, and the Warriors beat San Antonio 110-97 for a 3-0 series lead over the Spurs, who were still reeling from the death of Gregg Popovichs wife.

It was a perfect setup for a letdown, Golden State forward Draymond Green said. I dont say that to be insensitive at all to the situation. We all take this basketball stuff serious and we want to win, but when you start talking life and death, a game doesnt matter. But yet we still wanted to come out and try to win the game.

The Warriors can close the first-round series with a win Sunday afternoon in San Antonio in Game 4.

Its hard to think about that for me, personally, right now because there is other stuff bigger than basketball, Spurs veteran Tony Parker said.

The Spurs were playing a day after the death of Erin Popovich Cowboys Authentic Jerseys , who passed away after battling an undisclosed long-term illness. Erin and Gregg Popovich were married four decades and have two children and two grandchildren.

San Antonio did not air a video tribute or hold a moment of silence for Erin in an apparent attempt to make the game as routine as possible for its players, but that was impossible.

Coach Popovich was not in his customary position roaming the sidelines, choosing instead to be with his family. San Antonio assistant Ettore Messina coached the team in Popovichs place.

We are all hurting, Spurs veteran Manu Ginobili said after the morning shootaround. We want to be next to Pop, we want to support him, but weve got to go out there and compete today. But, for sure, we are toiling. Its not an easy day to be here.

Ginobili and Parker said it was tough to play basketball following Erins passing, but the teams goal was to compete and play with the grit Popovich has always demanded of them.

Parker, who said Erin and Gregg were a mother and father to him when he entered the league as a 19-year-old Youth Ito Smith Jersey , lived up to those wishes. Parker, who averaged 2.0 points in the first two games, finished with 16 points in 17 minutes.

LaMarcus Aldridge led San Antonio with 18 points and 10 rebounds.

The Spurs had an emotional start, but could not sustain it against the talented Warriors.

This was about what I expected, Golden State coach Steve Kerr said. First half they were getting after us like they did in Game 2 and we stayed with it, we had some bursts. The whole point is take care of the ball and defend over 48 minutes and things should work out.

Already on the edge of their seats for the first home game of the playoffs, fans erupted when Rudy Gay threw down a one-handed dunk over Golden States JaVale McGee. The cheering was nearly constant as the Spurs scored the games first six points before the Warriors began to settle in.

Durant and Klay Thompson shot down San Antonios chances.

Thompson added 19 points, including 3-for-6 shooting on 3s.

Golden State closed the first half on a 20-9 run to eliminate a five-point deficit and take a 52-46 lead. Durant had 17 points in the first half to counter 10 points each from Gay and Parker.

Gay finished with 11 points.

The Warriors opened 1 for 14 on 3-pointers. Golden State finished 10 for 32 on 3s.

Well, when the 3s are not going, weve just got to continue moving the ball and getting open looks Miami Dolphins Jerseys Womens , Thompson said. But if were getting open looks, theyre eventually going to fall, and we rely on our defense when were not making shots. Our defense can be a constant for us, shouldnt always dictate how hard you play.

Green added 10 points, six rebounds, seven assists and four blocked shots.

TIP-INS

Warriors: Durant rolled his ankle at midcourt with about 4 1/2 minutes remaining but rose on his own after remaining on the court for less than a minute. Kerr said Durant and Shaun Livingston, who also rolled his ankle moments later, are both fine and will play in Game 4.. . Warriors G Stephen Curry did not play but sat behind the teams bench as he continues to rehabilitate a sprained knee. Curry is expected to return for the second round, if the Warriors advance. McGee started after being listed as questionable with a bruised left quadriceps. He had six points and four rebounds in 15 minutes.

Spurs: Messina was coaching his first NBA playoff game, but he has won more than 10 titles in the Euroleague Colts Game Jerseys , Russian SuperLeague and Italian League. Dejounte Murray had nine points and four assists in 16 minutes.

FOND MEMORIES

Kerr has been a friend of the Popovich family since his days playing for the Spurs at the turn of the century. In fact, Kerr grew so close with Erin Popovich that he almost got his longtime friend in trouble.

Erin was sort of the balance that Pop needed, Kerr said. I still remember when he traded me to Portland in 2001, he called me up to tell me the news (and) he said, `I dont think I can go home, because Erin is gonna be so mad at me for trading you.

The Baltimore Ravens provided quarterback Joe Flacco with two new potential targets Wednesday Falcons Elite Jerseys , agreeing to terms with wide receivers Ryan Grant and John Brown on the first day of free agency. Addressing a position that is a top priority this offseason, Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome added a pair of 27-year-olds he hopes can improve a passing attack that last year ranked 27th in the NFL.

To help make room for the newcomers, Newsome freed an estimated $5 million in salary cap space by cutting receiver Jeremy Maclin.

Grant has played in 64 games, including 15 starts, with the Washington Redskins. The 2014 fifth-round draft pick out of Tulane set career highs in 2017 with 45 catches for 573 yards and four touchdowns.

Brown has played four NFL seasons, all with Arizona. Selected in the third round of the 2014 draft, Brown has 173 career catches for 2 Cheap Arizona Cardinals Hoodie ,515 yards and 17 TDs.

The contracts are pending the passing of physicals. Grant reportedly received a four-year contract and Brown agreed to a one-year pact.

The Ravens are counting on Grant to continue the improvement he showed last season. Though he has never had a 100-yard receiving game and has scored only six career touchdowns, he ranked second on the Redskins in 2017 in catches and TD receptions.

Browns best season was in 2015, when he had 65 catches for 1,003 yards and seven scores.

After a season in which Baltimores wideouts totaled 11 touchdown receptions, the team made no secret of its desire to bolster the receiving corps.

We will be exploring all options in free agency and in the draft for targets for Joe (Flacco), owner Steve Bisciotti said.

That was a focus last season, too Youth Jaleel Scott Jersey , but Maclin did not live up to expectations.

Baltimore signed Maclin as a free agent in June, hopeful the accomplished pass catcher would regain the form he showed in 2015 with Kansas City, when he had 87 catches for 1,088 yards and eight touchdowns.

But Maclin missed two games with a shoulder injury, two more with knee issues, and finished with only 40 catches for 440 yards and three touchdowns.

That, along with the poor performance of 2015 first-round pick Breshad Perriman (10 catches Christian Kirk Jersey Cardinals , 77 yards, no TDs), left the Ravens looking for speed outside after finishing 9-7 and missing the playoffs for a third straight season.

Mike Wallace, who had 52 catches for a team-high 748 yards in 2017, became a free agent Wednesday. It is unclear whether the Ravens will attempt to bring him back the 31-year-old, nine-year pro.

Newsomes pursuit of top-tier free agent receivers has been hindered by a tight salary cap, which likely contributed to Allen Robinson and Sammy Watkins signing with other teams.

In an effort to free up salary-cap space Cardinals Game Jerseys , Newsome earlier this week cut running back Danny Woodhead and did not pick up the option on right tackle Austin Howard.

Maclin, Woodhead and Howard were all acquired before the 2017 season.

Also on Wednesday, the Ravens extended tenders to seven exclusive-rights free agents, the most notable running back Alex Collins, the teams leading rusher last year. The players still have to sign their tenders, but cannot negotiate with any other teams.

v
EAST RUTHERFORD Logan Cooke Super Bowl LI Jersey , N.J. (AP) Andy Reid had such success coaching teams coming off bye weeks he had gone 16-2. That magic was gone Sunday.

The New York Giants beat Reids sluggish and out-of-sync Kansas City Chiefs 12-9 in overtime. The week off did not cure what ails the Chiefs, who have lost four of their last five games after a 5-0 start.

Reid put the blame squarely on his shoulders.

Article continues below ... We didnt play well enough, Reid said. Thats my responsibility.

Reid was not the only culprit. Not even close.

Alex Smith was off-target most of the afternoon at blustery MetLife Stadium. He was 27 for 40 for 230 yards http://www.denverbroncosteamonline.com/cou...d-sutton-jersey , with several balls sailing way wide of intended targets. His two interceptions set up the first nine Giants points. He had not thrown an interception in his first eight games.

One could also point a finger at nine Kansas City penalties that gifted New York 87 yards. Or the fact the Chiefs were 3 for 11 on third downs.

We are going to take care of business and tighten things up in those areas so we are more disciplined, Reid said. Thats directly reflected on me. I need to make sure I do my job better.

The Chiefs started slowly and never recovered. They allowed a Giants defense coming off lopsided losses to the Rams and the winless 49ers to find their footing.

They played good today. Smith said. We let them get in a rhythm early. They got confidence going and played with it all day.

The outcome pleased the Giants fans who braved a windy afternoon to cheer their struggling 2-8 team. And it was a slap in the face for the Chiefs.

Were going to have to go look at the film and man up, tight end Travis Kelce said. Nobody is pointing fingers Wholesale Tyquan Lewis Jersey , but guys have to get called out and get told, you know what I mean? They have to be more accountable, and that starts with myself. Well just go around the room and sure enough Cheap Markus Wheaton Jersey , guys have to start stepping up.

That starts with a home game against Buffalo on Sunday as they try to maintain their two-game lead in the division.

The Chiefs still believe they are a top team, perhaps a SuperBowl contender. It gets harder to keep the faith with each loss.

The first thing you have to do is punch your tick
et to the dance and get into the tournament, Smith said. Till you do that Authentic Nick Nelson Jersey , you should be focused on every single one of these games. You have to have a sense of urgency. Plenty of teams started out hot. You have to continue to grow and get better. Certainly these games get bigger and bigger as the season goes on and weve got to find a way to win.

SANTA CLARA Authentic Hector Rondon Jersey , Calif. (AP) Jimmy Garoppolo could have waited and cashed in even more than he did after other quarterbacks re-set the market.

The San Francisco 49ers could have used a franchise tag instead of making a long-term commitment to make sure Garoppolo was worth a hefty investment after only seven NFL starts.

But both sides wanted this resolved quickly, and did so with a contract that will pay Garoppolo a record $27.5 million per season over the next five years.

Article continues below ... This is where I want to be, honestly, Garoppolo said at a news conference Friday. I wanted to get this deal done as fast as possible. It will only help our team going forward going into free agency. I wanted to be here. I was excited to be here. Im happy we got it done as fast as we did.

Garoppolos $137.5 million contract has the richest annual value in NFL history, topping the deal Detroits Matthew Stafford signed last year by $500,000 a season.

The deal includes nearly $49 million that is full guaranteed Colts Darius Leonard Jersey , more than $74 million guaranteed for injury and more than $86 million that will be paid out over the first three seasons.

The franchise tag could have been a safer option for both sides, leading to more money for Garoppolo if he kept playing at the high level he showed this past season and more protection for the 49ers if he didnt reach that level.

But neither side was eager to go that direction.

We became convinced we had that as an option, but we didnt want to use it, general manager John Lynch said. We wanted to make Jimmy a 49er for a long, long time. Do you have to have some faith for that? Absolutely. But he earned that faith we had for him. I know it wasnt a super long time but we felt we had a really good grasp on the talent and that was only confirmed when he got here.

San Francisco acquired Garoppolo from New England before the trade deadline for a 2018 second-round pick. As soon as he took the field a few weeks later, he immediately turned around a franchise that started the year with a 1-10 record.

Garoppolo took over as starter and led San Francisco to five straight wins to end the season. He completed 67.4 percent of his passes this season Falcons Deadrin Senat Jersey , averaging 8.8 yards per attempt with seven TDs, five interceptions and a 96.2 rating.

Among quarterbacks with at least 100 attempts last season, Garoppolo ranked first in yards per attempt, fourth in completion percentage. His 308.4 yards passing per game in his five starts also would have led the league had he played a full season.

Now he will have a full offseason to completely learn coach Kyle Shanahans offense, which could lead to even more production.

Now the rush isnt quite the same, Shanahan said. He can start from the beginning and start from the first page and not the 50th page. He can get a better foundation. When you have a better foundation of where youre coming from and learning Adidas Seth Jones Jersey , it gives you a chance to play at a higher level.

Garoppolo has won all seven starts in his career, including two in New England to start the 2016 season when Brady was suspended for his role in Deflategate. Only four other quarterbacks since the 1970 merger won their first seven starts, with Ben Roethlisberger the most recent to do it with 15 wins in a row in the regular season for Pittsburgh in 2004-05. Garoppolos 2,038 yards passing in his first seven starts are the fourth most among all quarterbacks since 1970.

The deal still leaves the 49er with more than $60 million in salary cap room, according to executive vice president Paraag Marathe, with several more holes to fill. The most glaring needs are upgrading the skill position players and interior of the offensive line Authentic Adrian Gonzalez Jersey , and finding a big-time pass rusher and cornerbacks to help the defense.

Lynch said he plans to be aggressively prudent with that money but believes this deal will help sell the organization to potential free agents, including some who played for San Francisco this past year.

One of the reasons for the urgency, if there was some for us, was heading into free agency this is a big deal, Lynch said. Its 75 degrees and sunny outside. We have this guy. Who wouldnt want to be here? We want to become a destination where everyone wants to be.

ARLINGTON Wholesale Will Hernandez Jersey , Texas (AP) Keenan Allen looked a little overweight to new Los Angeles Chargers coach Anthony Lynn coming off a knee injury that sidelined him for all but one game in 2016.

The fifth-year receiver didnt look heavy to the five Dallas defenders he evaded on a nifty catch-and-run touchdown that helped the Chargers boost their playoff hopes in a 28-6 victory over the Cowboys on Thursday.

Now Allen can start looking at a career best in yards receiving for a season after getting his most in a game 172 including that 42-yard score. He also had 11 catches a week after getting 12 grabs for 159 yards and two touchdowns in a 54-24 victory over Buffalo.

Article continues below ... Allen, who had career highs of 1,046 yards and eight touchdowns as a rookie in 2013, is at 927 yards with four scores after getting two of the three highest yardage totals of his career in consecutive weeks. Hes likely to be in the top five in the NFL by the end of Week 12.

I felt Keenans been good all along, Lynn said after Allens fourth 100-yard game of the season. Hes got his weight down, hes catching balls, run after catch is good. The more reps you get Authentic Lonnie Chisenhall Jersey , sometimes the better you get. Ive been impressed with Keenan coming out of the gate.

On the third-quarter touchdown, Allen caught a pass along the sideline, escaped cornerback Orlando Scandricks arms and made safety Jeff Heath miss. After slipping between safeties Xavier Woods and Byron Jones, Allen cut inside cornerback Anthony Brown to put the Chargers up 22-6.

I used to be a running back, said Allen, who has back-to-back 100-yard games for the fourth time in his career. I had to get up the field really fast. After that, it was a matter of making those guys miss.

Philip Rivers had his ninth career 400-yard game Adidas Nazem Kadri Jersey , throwing for 434 yards and three touchdowns in his first Thanksgiving appearance in his 14th season. The six-time Pro Bowler has the Chargers rolling with two home games coming, starting with winless Cleveland on Dec. 3.

The Chargers (5-6) are a half-game out of the wild-card picture and 1 1/2 games behind AFC West-leading Kansas City. Los Angeles started 0-4 while the Chiefs won their first five.

I think its fitting today to be thankful were still right there, Rivers said. Each game is going to be bigger and bigger. It will be a fun December if we do what were supposed to do the next few weeks.

Things to consider after Rivers second straight 400-yard game against the Cowboys, the previous one coming four years ago in a 30-21 win in San Diego:

KICK IN THE PANTS: For the second straight game, the Dallas opponent comes off an easy win mostly without its kicker and wondering what will happen at that position.

Philadelphia lost Jake Elliott to a head injury and went without a kicker for the rest of a 37-9 victory, going on fourth downs and 2-point conversions. LAs Nick Novak came back to make a 22-yard field goal after leaving with a back injury, but left for good after missing an extra point . He had an earlier 35-yard miss. Lynn decided against going for 2 Wholesale Da'Ron Payne Jersey , and punter Drew Kaser made one of three PAT attempts.

Novak was listed on the injury report, but was a full practice participant all week.

He kicked half the reps that he normally kicks and he was fine, Lynn said. I know we need a healthy kicker and if he can get back to healthy, wed love to have him. But if not, well see.

GLOOM AND DOOM IN BIG D: The Cowboys (5-6) face three more games without star running back Ezekiel Elliott, suspended six games over alleged domestic violence.

They have two touchdowns in three games without him, and have been outscored 72-6 in the second half Authentic Kevin Hogan Jersey , when Dallas has often taken control thanks to the bruising style of last years NFL rushing leader. Oh, and the Cowboys won three straight with Elliott before the suspension.

I do believe we have enough playmakers, tight end Jason Witten said. We have to look at ourselves and we have to strain and climb out of this together. Certainly its easy to say `execute better but its more than that.

PICK PLAYS: If the Chargers stay in contention, interceptions figure to be part of the formula. Desmond Kings 90-yard return was the second pick-six in as many games after LA picked off the Bills five times in the first half. Casey Hayward has three interceptions the past two games and 20 since entering the league in 2012, which ranks fourth.

NEW YORK The Winnipeg Jets have a chance Saturday to achieve something the franchise has never done since it was relocated from Atlanta prior to the 2011-12 season. The New York Islanders will be trying to avoid completing a pre-Christmas break slide that seemed incomprehensible at the start of the month.

The host Islanders and visiting Jets will attempt to enter the Christmas break on a winning note Saturday afternoon Authentic Fernando Valenzuela Jersey , when they meet at Barclays Center.

Both squads were off Friday after their respective slides continued with losses Thursday night. The Islanders allowed the game-tying goal with 1:15 left in regulation before falling to the visiting Anaheim Ducks 5-4 in overtime. The Jets, playing the second game of a three-game road trip, fell to the Boston Bruins 2-1 in the shootout.

Article continues below ... Despite losing in Boston, the Jets (20-10-6) enter Saturday with an opportunity to hit the Christmas break in first place in the Central Division. Winnipeg, which has lost six of its last 10 (4-4-2) Cody Latimer Super Bowl LI Jersey , is in a three-way tie for first with the Nashville Predators and St. Louis Blues, both of whom play later Saturday night.

To do their part to at least enter the break with a share of the division lead, the Jets know theyll have to continue playing solid defense, especially against the potent Islanders. Winnipeg has allowed just six goals in its last three games after giving up 23 goals in six games from Dec. 5-16.

Were not looking to get into a scoring race with them in this game, Jets center Bryan Little told the teams website following an optional practice Friday afternoon. We want to have that same mentality as weve had the last two games Cheap Christian Kirk Jersey , especially against Boston, and be patient and comfortable in that type of game.

For better or for worse, the Islanders best hope lately has been to win high-scoring games. New York entered Friday with 125 goals scored and 125 goals against. The former ranks second in the NHL, behind only the league-leading Tampa Bay Lightning, while the latter is tied for last with the Arizona Coyotes Authentic Denzel Ward Jersey , who have the fewest points in the circuit.

While the Islanders enter Saturday one point ahead of the Pittsburgh Penguins in the race for the Eastern Conferences second wild card, short- and long-term history suggests they will have trouble maintaining that standing with such porous defense and goaltending. Goalies Jaroslav Halak and Thomas Greiss currently possess an .891 save percentage for New York, which began December one point out of first place in the Metropolitan Division.

In addition, no team has made the playoffs in a non-lockout season with a sub-.900 save percentage since the Calgary Flames (.899) and Detroit Red Wings (.894) each made the postseason out of the Western Conference in 2008-09.

Islanders head coach Doug Weight hoped some feistiness Thursday night from Halak might spark the goalies. Halak threw a couple jabs at Ducks left winger Nick Ritchie after Ritchie slammed Halak into the net in the second period.

The big picture, the small picture Authentic Yu Darvish Jersey , five goals and we lose, but yeah, he was fighting for space and he had some emotion today, Weight said. I think we take positives with any of that right now. We need to regroup (Friday) and weve got to get two points somehow on Saturday.

JACKSONVILLE http://www.baltimoreravensteamauthentic.co...en-hurst-jersey , Fla. (AP) All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey wasted little time turning his attention to Jacksonvilles next playoff game.

He also knew everyone else wanted to look back at that Week 5 matchup at Pittsburgh.

Im sure theyre thinking that game was a fluke, Ramsey said.

Article continues below ... The Jaguars (11-6) will try to prove it wasnt when they return to the Steel City next week.

Jacksonvilles latest defensive gem a 10-3 victory against Buffalo (9-8) on Sunday set up a rematch with the Steelers (13-3).

The Jaguars stunned Pittsburgh in the first meeting, a 30-9 win in which Ben Roethlisberger threw five interceptions, was sacked twice and finished with the lowest passer rating of his career.

The game was a great illustration on if we play the way were capable of playing, then we can beat anybody like that, Jaguars cornerback Aaron Colvin said.

We know theyre going to be motivated. Ben said it earlier in the week or whenever that he wanted to see us again, so we know were going to get their best shot. But at the same time, theyre to get our best shot http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/patrick-omameh-jersey , too.

Whenever somebody gets our best shot, it hasnt turned out too good for people.

The Bills experienced that first-hand in Sundays AFC wild-card game.

Tyrod Taylor completed 17 of 37 passes for 134 yards, with an interception, against the NFLs best pass defense . LeSean McCoy carried 19 times for 75 yards, but a third of those came on one run . McCoy also had 44 yards receiving.

Jacksonvilles offense was even more inept.

Blake Bortles completed 12 of 23 passes for 87 yards, with a touchdown. Bortles was off all day, but made up for it with his legs . He ran for 88 yards, becoming the second starting quarterback in the past 25 years to win a playoff game with more rushing yards than passing. Atlantas Michael Vick also did it against the St. Louis Rams in the 2004 playoffs.

Thats usually not ideal for a quarterback Cheap Barkevious Mingo Jersey , Bortles said.

It was enough Sunday, at least with a defense this stingy.

I think we should hold every team to zero because thats just the kind of defense we are, Colvin said. Teams are going to move the ball and make plays, but at the end of the day, were the most dominant defense in the league. Weve got to hold teams to zero.

They might need to if Bortles and the leagues top rushing offense dont play better.

Leonard Fournette ran 21 times for 57 yards against a defense that had been giving up nearly 125 a game. It didnt help that Bortles misfired early and often.

He put together one decent drive, making as many plays with his feet as his arm, and capped it with a 1-yard scoring pass to backup tight end Ben Koyack on a gutsy, fourth-and-goal call.

Kind of reference it to a pitcher Cheap Jihad Ward Jersey , Bortles said. You go out and something is not right, you dont have a fastball, you dont have a curveball. You have to find another pitch to be able to land and be successful and get guys out. Thats kind of the same thing playing quarterback.

Here are some things to know about Jacksonvilles victory over Buffalo:

MCCOY GOES: McCoy topped 100 yards from scrimmage for the first time in his playoff career. Im proud of the way LeSean rose to the occasion, Bills coach Sean McDermott said. He battled in there, and it wasnt easy for him.

LATE CHANCES: The Bills had plenty of chances down the stretch, but a huge penalty against tight end Charles Clay, a dropped pass by Zay Jones and then a tackle that knocked Taylor out of the game ended any threat of a comeback.

Taylors helmet slammed hard against the ground after getting thrown down by Dante Fowler Jr. He had to be helped off the field, forcing backup Nathan Peterman into the game with 1:27 remaining. Ramsey picked off Petermans third pass Oren Burks Jersey Elite , and the Jaguars ran out the clock.

ELECTRIC ATMOSPHERE: The Jaguars enjoyed a rare packed house for the franchises first home playoff game in 18 years, and thousands of Bills fans tailgated outside EverBank Field and crowded into nearby bars. Coach Doug Marrone gave a game ball to the fans. It was incredible, Bortles said.

Theres not a lot of people outside of Marcedes (Lewis) that have ever seen the stadium like that. Everyone knows it hasnt been done in a long time so it was really special to be able to do that.

KANSAS CITY Authentic Joel Iyiegbuniwe Jersey , Mo. (AP) The Broncos remain without wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders and the Chiefs are missing offensive guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif for their important AFC West showdown Monday night.

Sanders was a longshot to play after hurting his ankle in a loss to the Giants on Oct. 15, while Duvernay-Tardif practiced this week but is still missing his fourth straight game with a knee injury.

NEW YORK (AP) Roger Goodell has signed a five-year contract extension to remain commissioner of the NFL through 2024.

A memo from the NFLs compensation committee to team owners and obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press confirms that Goodell and committee chairman Arthur Blank Authentic Francisco Liriano Jersey , owner of the Atlanta Falcons, have signed the extension.

That extension has been a source of controversy because Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones objected to the process.

Article continues below ... All 32 owners approved in May the compensation committees power to negotiate and sign a deal with Goodell, who replaced Paul Tagliabue in 2006.

Since then, the leagues total revenues have more than doubled to $14 billion.

A person familiar with the contract told The Associated Press it is worth almost $200 million, with a base of $40 million. But the deal is incentive-laden Cheap Hayden Hurst Jersey , the person added, speaking on condition of anonymity because the contract numbers are not made public.

Among those incentives are continued increases in revenues, stable or rising television ratings, a new labor agreement with the players the NFL-NFL Players Association deal expires in 2021 and how much the NFL gets in rights fees when it renews its broadcast contracts.

Goodell earned nearly $32 million in 2015, the last year in which public records for the NFL are available.

Our committee unanimously supports the contract and believes that it is fully consistent with `market compensation and the financial and other parameters outlined to the owners at our May 2017 meeting Authentic J'Mon Moore Jersey , as well as in the best interests of ownership, Blank wrote in the memo.

We also have expressed in those conversations our strong and unanimous belief that we should proceed to sign the agreement now, consistent with the unanimous May resolution and to avoid further controversy surrounding this issue.? We are pleased to report that there is a nearly unanimous consensus among the ownership in favor of signing the contract extension now.

That would not include Jones, whose objections surfaced publicly after his star running back, Ezekiel Elliott http://www.tampabaybuccaneersteamonline.co...on-davis-jersey , ran out of legal options to appeal a six-game suspension handed down by Goodell under the NFLs personal conduct penalty.

Jones was not immediately available for comment.

The NFLs next owners meeting is in Dallas next Wednesday. Jones had hoped to delay the new deal with Goodell until then, when he could personally raise his concerns to other owners.

Also on the compensation committee are owners Clark Hunt of Kansas City, Robert Kraft of New England, John Mara of the New York Giants, Bob McNair of Houston and Art Rooney of Pittsburgh.

The performance of Adidas has continued to be higher than its competitors. In the third quarter of 2012 Wholesale Jeremy Kerley Jersey , its turnover and profit increased dramatically. However, Rebook Company that was its American subsidiary company encountered the problem, so it ranked only second to Nike's second biggest sports brand. Adidas Company cut the expected value of its turnover this year down. Because after the fraud case, it required to supply Rebook India company's restructuring with financial support.

NEW YORK (AP) The Minnesota Wild have been thriving lately on the road to keep pace in the Central Division. After smothering the Rangers 4-1 Authentic Albert Wilson Jersey , they completed a three-game sweep in the New York area.

Mikael Granlund and Eric Staal each scored twice and Devan Dubnyk made 22 saves in the Wilds victory over the free-falling New York Rangers on Friday night. The Wild also beat the Islanders on Monday night and New Jersey on Thursday night.

Well, it obviously means getting six points, but we have never done that before, Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said. Anytime you do something you havent done before http://www.jacksonvillejaguarsteamonline.c...harrison-jersey , its pretty cool.

Article continues below ... The Rangers lost for the sixth straight time in regulation. New York is 6-17-0 since beating Buffalo in the Winter Classic on Jan. 1.

In my mind, we worked hard. We just werent able to make the plays that we needed to make to get something out of that, Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said.

Granlund opened the scoring for Minnesota at 16:06 of the first period after Staal intercepted a terrible breakout pass attempt by Rangers defenseman Anthony DeAngelo. Staal passed to Granlund, who easily put the puck past rookie netminder Alexandar Georgiev.

Georgiev played his second NHL game after making his debut Thursday night in a 3-1 loss at Montreal.

Staal made it 2-0 at 18:43. The goal was originally credited to Granlund but was changed to Staal late in the third period.

The Rangers narrowed the deficit to 2-1 when Jesper Fast scored his ninth of the season at 2:41 of the second.

Staal made it 3-1 for the visitors 52 seconds into the third period with a power-play goal his team-leading 29th of the season. Defenseman Ryan Suter and Granlund had assists.

Eric Staal had a short stint with the Rangers two seasons ago Tanner Lee Jersey Elite , joining his brother Marc in New York but only recording only three goals in 20 games and none in the playoffs.

Theres always motivation every night, Eric Staal said. You always want to prove yourself. Tonight was one of those nights we caught them with some great plays and we were fortunate to be able to capitalize.

Granlund, made it 4-1 at 9:22 of the third with his 17th goal of the season.

Obviously, its always nice to score Authentic Edwin Encarnacion Jersey , said the 25-year-old Finnish forward who was drafted ninth overall by the Wild in 2010. Its nice to get some offense going.

Minnesota is 6-1-2 in its last eight games. The Wild are in playoff position in a tight Central Division race.

Rangers forward Rick Nash didnt dress for the second straight game. The 33-year-old Nash, whose contract expires after this season, is expected to be traded by Mondays deadline.

He has 18 goals and 10 assists this season and is one point shy of 800 for his career. Nash scored against the Flyers in last Sundays 7-4 home loss. He was also a healthy scratch for Thursdays loss at Montreal.

The Rangers traded forward Michael Grabner their leading goal scorer to the Devils late Thursday after sending defenseman Nick Holden to the Boston Bruins earlier in the week.

The Rangers are facing late-season games without playoff-race meaning for the first time since 2004 when they also made numerous deadline trades. They have only missed the playoffs once since 2005-06, in 2010 when the Rangers missed out on the last day of the season in a shootout loss at Philadephia.

Were in a results-oriented business http://www.buffalobillsteamonline.com/jeremy-kerley-jersey , Vigneault added. The effort and preparation is there. We just have to stay with it.

NOTES: Forward Chris Kreider returned for the Rangers after missing 24 games with blood clot in right arm. Kreider last played Dec. 27 against Washington. The Wild are 4-7-0 at Madison Square Garden Minnesota scratched forward Chris Stewart and defensemen Jonas Brodin and Gustav Olofsson The Rangers continued to be without injured defensemen Kevin Shattenkirk, Ryan McDonagh and Steven Kampfer.

Wild: Host San Jose on Sunday night.

SAN JOSE Wholesale Carlton Davis Jersey , Calif. (AP) San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster has been charged with felony domestic violence after being accused of dragging his girlfriend and punching her in the head, leaving her with a ruptured eardrum, authorities said.

The Santa Clara County District Attorney charged Foster on Thursday Authentic Jerome Baker Jersey , when he was also arraigned in San Jose. A judge ordered him not to have any contact with his girlfriend.

Foster was accompanied to court by 49ers teammate Richard Sherman. He did not enter a plea and was released after posting $75,000 bail.

Article continues below ... He declined to answer media questions outside court, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

Prosecutors said the 24-year-old Foster attacked his girlfriend in February at their Los Gatos home Tanner Lee Super Bowl LI Jersey , leaving her bruised and with an injured eardrum.

The 28-year-old woman told responding officers that Foster dragged her by her hair, physically threw her out of the house, and punched her in the head eight to 10 times.

Foster was also charged with felony possession of an assault weapon and misdemeanor possession of a high-capacity magazine after officers found a Sig Sauer 516 short-barreled rifle in his home while investigating his girlfriends domestic violence report.

If convicted on all charges Authentic Jeff Bagwell Jersey , He faces up to 11 years in prison.

The 49ers drafted Foster 31st overall last year after questions about his health and character caused him to drop from being a possible top 10 pick.

Foster delivered on the field, ranking second on the team with 72 tackles in 10 games as a rookie and looking like a key part of San Franciscos defensive future.

Foster then was charged in January in Alabama with second-degree marijuana possession before the incident in February that led to the most recent charges.

Foster could face discipline from the league for both infractions.

We continue to monitor all developments in this matter which is under review of the personal conduct policy, the NFL said in a statement.

The 49ers called the domestic violence charges against Foster disturbing.

We will continue to follow this serious matter Cheap Anthony Averett Jersey , the team said in a release. Reuben is aware that his place in our organization is under great scrutiny and will depend on what is learned through the legal process.

BEAVER CREEK http://www.jacksonvillejaguarsteamonline.com/dj-chark-jersey , Colo. (AP) Being the first racer out of the gate meant no course report or final helpful hints for Aksel Lund Svindal.

Didnt matter. Very few know this course better than the hard-charging Norwegian.

Svindal put down such a blistering opening run that no one could catch him as he captured a World Cup downhill race Saturday. It was his sixth win on the challenging Birds of Prey course.

Article continues below ... Every once in a while I can put down a good run, Svindal cracked.

The 34-year-old Svindal elected to have his coaches pick the No. 1 spot at the captains meeting the night before, believing the snow conditions might be a little more favorable by running early.

It was a calculated risk, Svindal said. But not a huge risk.

He finished in a time of 1 minute, 40.46 seconds to beat Switzerlands Beat Feuz by 0.15 seconds. Thomas Dressen was third to give Germany its first World Cup mens downhill podium spot since 2004.

Svindal sat in the leaders box as racer after racer couldnt match his line. He knew he had a good run but wasnt sure if it was a winning one. Especially after Austrias Max Franz Authentic George Springer Jersey , the second skier on the course, had a faster split at the top. Svindal thought he might have left an opening for someone.

Thats the only problem with No. 1, Svindal said. Sometimes the flat sections get faster once theyre skied more and more.

Not on this day. Not on this sun-splashed course.

Aksel hammered it, did his thing and showed yet again how fast he can be, teammate Kjetil Jansrud said.

Svindal has been working his way back from knee surgery since January. This provides even more proof he is heading in the right direction.

Not that anyone on the circuit wanted to hear that. Svindal has been limited in his training the last few years due to knee injuries along with a torn Achilles tendon in 2014 but always manages to rebound.

Hes phenomenal. I dont understand how hes doing this stuff with less training and everything Authentic Nathan Shepherd Jersey , Dressen said. He must have such a good feeling for his skis. Hes just a race horse. I dont know how hes doing it. I need to ask him about it.

Sorry, top secret.

Really, though, its all about Svindals miles on skis. Hes had so many training runs over his career that he relies on experience. That particularly applies to Beaver Creek, where he always seems to be speedy and in the running.

This place is also the site of a haunting crash. Svindal broke his nose and cheekbone in a 2007 wipeout along the course when he lost control on a jump and landed in the safety netting. He also suffered a laceration to his abdominal area.

He returned to Beaver Creek the next season and won the downhill and super-G races.

Svindal wont race in the giant slalom on Sunday to save wear on his knees.

I can only ski a certain amount of days and a certain amount of runs Wholesale Tracy Walker Jersey , Svindal said. When the other guys go giant slalom training, Im sitting on the spinning bike.

Its all part of the grand plan to keep him healthy for the Pyeongchang Olympics, where he will be one of the favorites.

Svindal is every time the man to beat, said Italian racer Christof Innerhofer, who started 27th and roared to fourth place. Hes the best.

It was another difficult day for the Americans Shaquem Griffin Jersey Elite , with no racers finishing in the top 20. One of their top downhillers, Steven Nyman, only foreran the course with his balky knee still healing.

This is a big topic right now, said Bryce Bennett, who led the U.S. with a 21st-place finish. I know our coaches are pretty involved with it and like Wholesale Billy Price Jersey , `Where are the results? I think everyone is capable of speed. Im not really worried about it. Seems like a lot of people are. Once someone puts one down, its going to be game on.

RALEIGH http://www.miamidolphinsteamonline.com/albert-wilson-jersey , N.C. (AP) The Carolina Hurricanes learned a tough lesson over the past 1 1/2 weeks: No lead is safe on home ice against the Washington Capitals.

Jay Beagle scored with 1.3 seconds remaining and the Capitals rallied to beat the Hurricanes 4-3 on Friday night.

Brett Connolly notched the tying goal with 3:08 left, and Alex Ovechkin added his NHL-leading 28th goal and two assists for the first-place Capitals, who lost to the Hurricanes a night before in Washington.

Article continues below ... It kind of had almost a playoff atmosphere, especially in the first, just seeing each other back-to-back, Beagle said. It kind of gets that little bit of hatred and little bit of rivalry going.

Lars Eller scored on the power play and Philipp Grubauer stopped 36 shots to help the Capitals earn their second come-from-behind victory in Raleigh in less than two weeks. Washington won 5-4 in overtime on Jan. 2 on two late goals by Ovechkin.

The character of the team Authentic Uchenna Nwosu Jersey , it shows it, Ovechkin said. Right now, were starting to realize who we are. We have to work hard. Its not going to be easy.

The Hurricanes got power-play goals from Jordan Staal and Sebastian Aho with each player assisting on the others goal and an even-strength goal from Jeff Skinner.

We had the opportunity to put a game away, we gave up two in the last three minutes, Carolina coach Bill Peters said. Would have been nice to lock it down and get the two points. Didnt happen.

Carolina appeared headed for a sweep of the back-to-back series, but T.J. Oshie pressured All-Star Noah Hanifin into a turnover behind the net and Connolly snapped the loose puck between Cam Wards legs.

Beagle then stuffed in a rebound past an outstretched Ward in the closing seconds.

With Ovechkin chanting his name in the dressing room and calling him a legend Wholesale Armani Watts Jersey , Beagle said he was just crashing the net, eyes closed, and it hit my stick.

The goal came moments after Carolina co-captain Jordan Staal appeared to take a high stick to the face, though no penalty was called, with Staal saying the officials chose not to call it.

Pretty obvious, right? Thirty-two seconds to go in the game Authentic Jason Kipnis Jersey , should be on the power play, Peters said. The power plays good tonight, you dont score there, you start 4-on-3 in OT.

The game came hours after Carolina publicly introduced Dallas billionaire Tom Dundon as the new majority owner and successor to longtime owner Peter Karmanos Jr. Dundon took over control of the team Thursday after the sale closed.

Ward made 23 saves including a tumbling gem midway through the third to rob Evgeny Kuznetsov for Carolina, which was down a handful of regulars for the rematch of their 3-1 victory Thursday night .

Forward Derek Ryan didnt play after taking a hit from Tom Wilson the night before, defenseman Brett Pesce was placed on injured reserve earlier in the day and key forwards Joakim Nordstrom and Elias Lindholm were scratched with illnesses. Then Authentic Nomar Garciaparra Jersey , defensemen Trevor van Riemsdyk and Klas Dahlbeck skated off after being hit in their legs with shots, though both players quickly returned.

It shows the value of those guys on the penalty-kill unit, Peters said. Theyre unsung heroes, all of those guys.

NOTES: Aho has goals in three straight games, and Staal has points in four straight. The Hurricanes recalled C Lucas Wallmark from their AHL affiliate in Charlotte to replace Pesce. RW Lee Stempniak made his season debut for Carolina. He missed the first half of the season with an upper-body injury. Washington recalled C Travis Boyd from its AHL affiliate in Hershey, but he was scratched.

CHICAGO Goaltender Scott Darling will face his former team when the Carolina Hurricanes visit the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday night at the United Center.

Darling Wholesale John Kelly Jersey , 29, spent his first three seasons with the Blackhawks and helped the team win a Stanley Cup championship in 2015. Chicago traded him to Carolina at the end of last season in exchange for a third-round draft pick.

Less than a year later, Darling has maintained a close friendship with several players on the Blackhawks, including fellow goaltender Corey Crawford. He smiled when a reporter asked whether he would feel emotional playing in Chicago again.

Article continues below ... What do you mean Im emotional? he jokingly responded in comments that were published by John Dietz of the Daily Herald. Nah, Im just excited. Its something Ive been looking forward to. Obviously Authentic Lorenzo Cain Jersey , its going to be weird, but I feel like once the puck drops, it will be just another game.

Carolina (29-27-11) could use a strong game as it attempts to climb into one of the Eastern Conferences top eight playoff spots. The Hurricanes have dropped two games in a row and are 2-6-2 since Feb. 15.

Added to Carolinas plate was the news Wednesday that general manager and beloved former player Ron Francis had been moved from his role and will now be the president of hockey operations. The team is conducting a search for a replacement general manager, who will report directly to new owner Tom Dundon, according to The News and Observer.

Goaltender Jean-Francois Berube is scheduled to start for the Blackhawks (29-30-8). Berube earned the victory in Tuesdays 2-1 overtime conquest of Colorado and has a 2-1-0 record with a 3.10 goals-against average and .907 save percentage in five games (three starts).

Darling shined as Crawfords backup in Chicago Authentic James Daniels Jersey , but has endured a bumpy season with the Hurricanes. He is 10-16-7, 3.09, .889 in 35 games (32 starts). He faced the Blackhawks once in Carolina but never in Chicago. In his first matchup Nov. 11, he allowed four goals on 30 shots and absorbed the loss in overtime.

Blackhawks right winger Patrick Kane praised Darlings skills regardless of any recent struggles by the netminder.

Itll be good to see Scotty back here, said Kane Authentic Jordan Akins Jersey , who once acted on stage alongside Darling during the teams fan convention. Im sure hell get a great ovation from the crowd. Did some great things here.

Kane leads the Blackhawks with 63 points (24 goals, 39 assists) in 67 games. Alex DeBrincat (22 goals) and Nick Schmaltz (20) also have joined the 20-goal club, while Artem Anisimov (19) and Toews (18) are on the doorstep.

Carolina is led in scoring by yet another former Blackhawks player, Teuvo Teravainen, who has 52 points (19 goals Cheap Josh Rosen Jersey , 33 assists) in 67 games. Teravainen played parts of three seasons in Chicago before he was traded to the Hurricanes in 2016.

Forwards Sebastian Aho (23 goals) and Jeff Skinner (20) have found the back of the net the most for Carolina this season. Veteran Justin Williams, 36, also is near the top of the scoring list with 42 points (13 goals, 29 assists) in 67 games.

This is the second and final meeting of the regular season.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Listed generously at 6-foot-1 Trenton Cannon Super Bowl LI Jersey , Case Keenum has played for three teams in three NFL seasons and came to Minnesota in the offseason knowing he was the backup from Day 1.

At 6-foot-6, Joe Flacco is the statuesque, Super Bowl-winning quarterback who has been unquestioned starter in Baltimore for the last decade.

Yet the two find their roles reversed heading into a matchup on Sunday. Keenum is playing the best football of his life and has revived the Vikings playoff hopes while filling in for the injured Sam Bradford. Flacco and the Ravens passing offense have struggled mightily to cash in on myriad opportunities provided by a turnover-happy defense.

Article continues below ... With no sign that Bradford will be ready to play anytime soon, Keenum has filled in capably. He has been unafraid to throw the ball downfield, and his sense of calm in the pocket has helped a Vikings offense weather the storm of losing Bradford, running back Dalvin Cook and receiver Stefon Diggs.

No matter what offense Im in, Im continually trying to master it, said Keenum 49ers Dante Pettis Jersey , who has completed 64 percent of his passes for 1,134 yards with five touchdowns and one interception in five games. I never feel like Ive arrived. Im always striving for more. Thats my mindset. I want more. Im continuing to work and to grind and to continually master this craft.

Keenum has played well enough to allow the Vikings (4-2) to not have to try to rush Bradford, who has struggled with knee problems, on to the field again after starting him against Chicago two weeks ago and having to pull him just before halftime.

Not so for Flacco and the Ravens (3-3) passing offense, which is only ahead of Jay Cutler and the Dolphins when it comes to yards per game. Flacco is posting career lows in yards per attempt, yards per game and rating. But coach John Harbaugh said there is plenty of blame to go around with receivers dropping passes, two of which wound up in the hands of Bears defenders for interceptions in a ghastly 27-24 home loss to Chicago last week.

We have to figure it out as a group. Its a collective effort. Its on everybody, Harbaugh said. The quarterback shoulders the criticism Adidas Patrick Kane Jersey , but its on everybody.

Here are some key angles for the game:

GROUND IT OUT: Harbaugh doesnt care that Minnesota owns the third-ranked rush defense in the NFL. With a pass attack that ranks 31st in the league, Baltimore would love to keep it on the ground.

For us, the way were built, its always important to establish the run, Harbaugh said. Its a big part of who we are. So it doesnt really matter where theyre ranked.

Alex Collins has become the featured back for the Ravens, backed by Javorius Allen. The duo combined for 123 yards last week, and Collins averages a crisp 6.4 yards per carry this season.

Hes got great balance, Harbaugh said of Collins. Hes got great feet Cowboys Bo Scarbrough Jersey , quickness and good vision.

WALLACE RETURNS: Ravens wide receiver Mike Wallace played the 2015 season with Minnesota after stops in Pittsburgh and Miami. He has made himself at right at home in Baltimore.

Wallace has 15 receptions for 239 yards this season, including career catch No. 500 last week. He caught 72 passes for 1,017 yards in 2016, his first year with the Ravens.

Hes confident, he wants the ball, he wants to play, Harbaugh said.

Just as importantly, hes made a difference in the locker room.

Mike Wallace has been nothing but a leader Redskins Pernell McPhee Jersey , nothing but positive, nothing but energetic, Harbaugh said.

FRENZIED FINISHES: The last two meetings between these teams were thrillers.

In snowy Baltimore on Dec. 8, 2013, an NFL-record five touchdowns were scored over the final 125 seconds of the game won 29-26 by the Ravens. Matt Cassel connected with Cordarrelle Patterson on a 79-yard touchdown pass for the Vikings with 45 seconds left before Flacco found Marlon Brown in the end zone with 4 seconds remaining.

At the Metrodome on Oct. 18, 2009, Steven Hauschkas 44-yard field goal at the final whistle went wide left to give the Vikings a 33-31 victory . Brett Favres 58-yard completion to Sidney Rice set up Ryan Longwells field goal after the Ravens rallied from a 17-point deficit with 10 minutes to go to take a one-point lead. Flacco passed for 385 yards and two touchdowns that afternoon.

TEDDYS BACK: Almost a year and a half after a devastating knee injury, Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater returned to practice this week to continue a remarkable comeback bid. Bridgewaters knee was dislocated in a fluke accident during practice right before the 2016 season started Authentic Joe Thornton Jersey , and only some fast action by Vikings head athletic trainer Eric Sugarman and the teams medical staff saved his leg from being amputated.

We still dont know where its going to go or where thats going to lead to, Zimmer said. But, I think everybody feels good for him because they know what kind of kid he is and how hard he has worked.

SAN JOSE Cheap Su'a Cravens Jersey , Calif. (AP) Shortly after the San Jose Sharks were denied by the iron for the fourth time of the night, Marc-Andre Fleury rubbed the goal post to thank it for his good fortune.

Theres something magical about the ride the expansion Vegas Golden Knights have been on all season and now its going all the way to the Western Conference Final.

Fleury made 28 saves in his fourth shutout of the playoffs and the Golden Knights have made it to the NHLs final four in their inaugural season after beating the San Jose Sharks 3-0 in Game 6 of their second-round series Sunday.

Article continues below ... It was maybe a little bit of a shock, but Im proud of our team, our organization, the way they did things here Authentic Rashaan Gaulden Jersey , Fleury said. Im proud to be where we are right now.

Fleury, who was part of three Stanley Cup-winning teams in Pittsburgh, is a main reason for the success. He allowed just three goals in a first-round sweep against Los Angeles, posted shutouts in Games 1 and 6 against the Sharks and was also spectacular in an overtime win in Game 3.

He had plenty of help from a crew of castoffs who have come together in Vegas to form a team that has a legitimate shot at a championship. Vegas next will play either Winnipeg or Nashville in the Western Conference Final. The Jets lead that series 3-2 heading into Game 6 on Monday night.

We deserve to be here, coach Gerard Gallant said. Were a good team Authentic Durham Smythe Jersey , we play hard and we played well all season long. The two teams we played were very good hockey teams and we were very evenly matched with those teams.

Jonathan Marchessault opened the scoring, Nate Schmidt added an insurance goal that was only detectable by replay and Cody Eakin sealed it with an empty-netter to help Vegas become just the third team in NHL history to win multiple series in its first season.

The Toronto Arenas won the Stanley Cup in the first postseason in league history in 1918 and St. Louis won two rounds to win the all-expansion West Division in 1968.

The Sharks had numerous opportunities all night but were thwarted by a couple of shots that hit the iron, some acrobatic saves from Fleury and other chances that trickled just wide. This marked the fourth straight postseason for the Sharks that ended with a loss on home ice.

Its very disappointing, you get this far and lose, its disappointing Carlton Davis Super Bowl LI Jersey , Sharks forward Logan Couture said. Its extra disappointing when you dont play the way that you know that youre capable of. Thats something thats very difficult to take.

The Golden Knights took control of this game with some good fortune in the second period. It started when usually reliable Marc-Edouard Vlasic turned the puck over in his own zone. Reilly Smith took control near the blue line and found Marchessault alone in front for a goal that trickled between Martin Jones pads.

The Golden Knights then added to the lead after an icing by Brent Burns led to an offensive zone faceoff. David Perron beat Tierney on the draw and Schmidt took a shot that appeared to deflect off the post and out.

Play went on for 25 more seconds before the buzzer rang, with the situation room in Toronto calling for a video review. That quickly showed that the puck bounced off the post, off a piece equipment inside the net and out.

Vegas then had a delayed celebration for the goal that made it 2-0.

I had no idea, Schmidt said. Id never seen something like that happen where they blew the play dead, but when I was skating back to the bench and all the guys were yelling Authentic Braden Smith Jersey , `Its in.

That was the type of bounce the Sharks didnt get early in the game when they hit the post or crossbar three times in the opening period and then again in the third when they tried to cut into Vegas lead.

They also had several other chances that either Fleury turned aside with acrobatic saves, trickled just wide or they were unable to get a clean shot, like a rebound Couture whiffed on from the slot in the first period with an open net.

Its a fine line, coach Peter DeBoer said. I think we had a couple of those that didnt go in. Thats hockey. But Vegas deserves to be moving on. They played great. They finished the chances when they needed to and got saves when they needed to.

NOTES: Jones made 30 saves. Vegas F William Carrier was scratched with a lower-body injury and replaced by Ryan Reaves, who played his first game this postseason.

CHICAGO (AP) Tyler Seguins scoring touch and Ben Bishops fine work in net was enough for the surging Dallas Stars.

Seguin scored twice Cheap Braden Smith Jersey , Bishop made 37 saves and the Stars beat the fading Chicago Blackhawks 4-2 on Thursday night for their fourth straight victory.

Tyler Pitlick connected with 4.5 seconds left in the second period and Stephen Johns also scored for the Stars, who strengthened their hold on the top wild card in the Western Conference and remained one point behind third-place St. Louis in the Central Division.

Article continues below ... Greasy, said Seguin, who ran his team-high total to 28 goals by scoring for the fourth straight game. I dont think it was the best effort by any of us Authentic Durham Smythe Jersey , starting with myself and our line.

I think its a great thing that we still hung in there to get two points. Thats a playoff-type game where its not going to be perfect, not going to be the prettiest, but we found a way.

Dallas jumped on a handful of Chicago mistakes while completing a sweep of the four-game season series. The Stars have outscored their opponents 16-5 during their winning streak.

I thought we beat a desperate hockey team, a club that played very well Authentic Tremaine Edmunds Jersey , coach Ken Hitchcock said. Ben was great. The defense battled like crazy and we had some of our workers come through for us up front.

Jonathan Toews and Artem Anisimov scored for Chicago, which lost its fourth straight overall and sixth straight at home for its longest skid at the United Center since losing eight in a row in 2006-07. Anton Forsberg blocked 26 shots.

For whatever reason, were having a hard time putting the puck in the net and the little mistakes seem to be costing us, said defenseman Brent Seabrook Authentic Jay Bruce Jersey , who had two assists. Its tough to recover.

Toews 15th goal at 9:07 was the lone score in the first period. After taking Seabrooks bank pass off the boards, Toews gained a step on defenseman Dan Hamhuis and snapped off a shot from the left circle that ticked off Bishops right pad.

The captain snapped an 11-game drought with his first goal since he scored twice at Ottawa on Jan. 9. During the span, the veteran center had just three assists.

Seguin and Johns scored on consecutive shots 59 seconds apart early in the second to put Dallas ahead 2-1.

Capping a quick transition, Seguin streaked down the slot ahead of defenseman Connor Murphy and tipped in Alexander Radulovs nifty backhand pass at 5:44. After Chicago turned over the puck behind its net Authentic Wade Boggs Jersey , Johns screened shot from the left point appeared to hit traffic and sailed past Forsberg.

Anisimovs power-play goal at 12:48 tied it at 2. He batted in the puck from the left side of the net after Seabrooks shot from the top of the slot went wide and bounded off the back boards.

Pitlick put Dallas back ahead in the final seconds of the period. His shot from the right circle beat Forsberg over the right shoulder and landed in the upper-left corner of the net.

Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said Forsberg should have stopped Pitlicks shot and the chance shouldnt have materialized in the first place.

I thought our best period in a little while (was) the second period and we gave up three goals, Quenneville said. The game turned on the goal at the end of the period.

Tommy Wingels point-blank shot for Chicago hit the post 6:12 into the third. Bishop made a handful of close-in saves in the third before Seguin scored into an empty net with 58 seconds left.

NOTES: Dallas D Julius Honka left in the second period with an upper-body injury. Dallas C Martin Hanzal left the ice limping late in the second period after Brett Ritchies shot hit him on the inside of the left knee, but he returned for the third. Hanzal played his second game after missing five with a muscle strain in lower body. Blackhawks G Corey Crawford continues to skate on his own, but Quenneville still has no timetable for his return. Crawford has missed 19 straight games with an upper-body injury. Chicago D Jan Rutta sat out with an undisclosed injury and is day to day.

UP NEXT

Stars: Scheduled to return to Dallas and host Pittsburgh on Friday. A snowstorm hit Chicago on Thursday night and disrupted air traffic.

Blackhawks: At Minnesota on Saturday night to start a three-game trip.

BUFFALO Mike White Jersey Elite , N.Y. Forgettable campaigns for both the Buffalo Sabres and Ottawa Senators are nearing an end. Before they conclude, the two teams will meet in Buffalos home finale on Wednesday night.

The Sabres (25-42-12) have lost eight of their last 11 games as they prepare to finish their first season under head coach Phil Housley. Buffalo is coming off a 5-2 loss to the rival Toronto Maple Leafs on Monday and also had a 6-3 loss to the Detroit Red Wings last Thursday.

The Sabres have had a few positive moments sprinkled in between their struggles, particularly in the second half of the season which included a stunning surprise 7-4 win over the Nashville Predators on Saturday.

Article continues below ... In that game, top playmaker Jack Eichel had a career-best five assists in the victory Clive Walford Super Bowl LI Jersey , tying a franchise record. Eichel became the fourth Buffalo player to record five assists in a single game.

The loss to the Maple Leafs, however, was a stark reminder of just how far the Sabres have to go in order to turn things around in the future.

Thats a good team over there, they brought it Vinny Curry Jersey Elite , goalie Chad Johnson said after the loss, according to the teams website. Their skilled players or their best players were their best players. At the end of the day you wish you could personally, as a team, beat all these top teams all the time and have great numbers Authentic Anthony Gose Jersey , great statistics. Its tough beating these guys when theyre at their best. Theres a reason why they have as many points as they do. Were still finding that consistency in our game.

Eichel leads the Sabres in scoring with 62 points (25 goals, 37 assists) in 64 games. Ryan OReilly is second on the team with 58 points (22 goals, 36 assists) in 58 games. Young forward Sam Reinhart has turned the corner in the second half of the season, posting 48 points (24 goals Da'Shawn Hand Super Bowl LI Jersey , 24 assists) in 79 games.

One highlight for Sabres fans will be a Dominik Hasek bobblehead giveaway as part of the teams fan appreciation night. Every fan who attends the game will receive one bobblehead.

The Senators (27-41-11) are also limping to the finish line in what has been a remarkably frustrating and surprising season. Ottawa has lost eight of its last night games, with the lone win coming in overtime against the Florida Panthers last Thursday. Ottawas most recent defeat came in a 6-5 loss to the Winnipeg Jets on Monday.

We showed some character coming back, Senators coach Guy Boucher said, according to the teams website. But we made too many mistakes defensively to allow us to win.

With his future unclear Authentic Joe DiMaggio Jersey , Senators captain Erik Karlsson did not make the trip with the team to Buffalo. It remains to be seen if Karlsson has played his last game for the Senators. Karlsson picked up the final puck in the loss to Winnipeg before leaving the ice.

Karlsson is under contract through one more season but has been surrounded by trade rumors all season long.
