FIVE QUICK HOOPS THOUGHTS 1. CARMELO ANTHONY: As Knicks fans worry about the potential departure with his decision to opt out, I see this as a blessing in disguise.  As currently constructed, the Knicks have NO shot at being a legitimate contender. Yes. The organization gave up a kings ransom to get a major Asset yet when you reflect on his time in NY hes been a terrific scoring talent and theyve had their share of ups and downs and in his defense - not all his fault. He is what he is at this stage of his career -- a brilliant scorer who plays very hard on the offensive end of the court. In the end, sometimes in sports, business and life the best strategy is to cut your losses and move on. With Tyson Chandler, Amare Stoudemire and Andrea Bargnani all off the books next season, it allows president Phil Jackson to shape the organization in his image which is the right move. The key is to avoid all the noise from the NY media with demands to go for Big Name $$ Quick Fixes and make thoughtful basketball decisions. This organization tries too often to Win the Back Page rather than do whats smart. Yes, a terrific talent could walk out the door for little or nothing yet in 12 months you get to truly build the right foundation for long term success. Good common sense. 2. CHICAGO BULLS: Youll hear their name lots in the next 10 days when Melos name comes up and if I were Melo this makes complete sense to me as long as hes willing to take a pay cut that he can earn some back in quality endorsements if hes a significant piece on a major-league winning team in Chicago. Against the Knicks, a quick comparison: Money: NY, ownership: Chicago…. not close, management: Chicago…. Sorry, but Phil Jackson has never been a president/GM, coach: Chicago…. not close, team talent level: Chicago. If Derrick Rose can even get back to being 80 per cent of what he was, this is a nice edge.   In my mind, the Bulls make the most sense if -- and its a big IF -- hes willing to sacrifice. Hell be held totally accountable here on a daily basis. No nonsense.  Defining moment for him in his career. 3. KEVIN LOVE: Where there is smoke ….  If Im the TWolves, I move him as soon as I can and get on with the business of reshaping my team while his value is at its highest. Many folks say wait until the trade deadline, yet Im not sure youll get better than the next few weeks. I think you owe it to yourself and your fans to cut the cord as soon as you can. Believe me; if they really want him, theyll blink and offer you close (not all) of what you want. Be proactive. In 12 months, hell be out the door. Deal with it and rid yourself of the drama.  Terrific talent, yet hes got you to how many playoff appearances? Sure, the other 14 teammates matter a whole lot in the Western Conference but its time to be realistic and based upon your market build a team rather than the concern with having name guys. 4. ZACH RANDOLPH (Grizzlies): Trying to get an extension worked out in Memphis. Makes perfect sense to me.  All the guy does is produce and hes done it in the context of winning/playoffs. A double-double machine who is one of the toughest covers in the league, hes been very good for you. A piece you cant lose. If the term and money make sense, do it. 5. JOEL EMBIID: Feel awful for this young man. Watching him play this year at the University of Kansas hes an intriguing talent with loads of major potential that I love.  On the other hand, with some teams freaked out by the injuries to bigs like Sam Bowie and Greg Oden over the years with the complete - and I mean complete - change in the way the NBA game is played on the perimeter it might benefit him to fall a bit to a team that will be patient with him and allow him to work his way in at the right pace as a rookie. Hes got a chance to be very good, yet in a different league that bigs came into 20 years ago. If he drops a bit, someones going to be quite lucky if he holds up physically.  Risk vs. Reward.  Can change in a very positive way or end some careers with this pick. Will be interesting to watch unfold. Air Max 97 Offerte .ca. Mr. Fraser, I think everyone would like to hear your opinion on what sort of suspension Zac Rinaldo should get. His comment after the game of I changed the whole game, man. Balenciaga False .

DETROIT -- When David Price was finally traded, it was to an unexpected bidder. The Detroit Tigers added another Cy Young Award winner to their star-studded rotation, acquiring Price from Tampa Bay in a blockbuster deal Thursday. The Rays received left-hander Drew Smyly and minor league infielder Willy Adames from the Tigers. Tampa Bay also got infielder Nick Franklin from Seattle, with Detroit outfielder Austin Jackson going to the Mariners. The AL Central-leading Tigers are trying for their fourth consecutive division title, and their starting rotation was already a strength. General manager Dave Dombrowski decided to trade for Price anyway, giving Detroit a collection of stars on the mound that could be tough to match in any post-season series. "The question that we asked ourselves is: What gives us the best chance of winning the world championship this year?" Dombrowski said. "We thought adding him to our rotation at this point would give us the best chance to do that." The deal came just hours after the Oakland Athletics got an ace of their own, Jon Lester from the Boston Red Sox Price joins Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander in the Detroit rotation, giving the Tigers the last three American League Cy Young winners. The Tigers are the first team with three pitchers on the staff who have all won Cy Young Awards over the previous three seasons, according to STATS. "Today its great, its nice, its fine. I love to have David Price," Dombrowski said. "If we win, then Ill be very satisfied." Jackson was removed from Detroits game against the Chicago White Sox with one out in the top of the seventh inning. As he jogged in from centre field, he got a nice hand from the home fans, many of whom no doubt understood the significance of the substitution moments before the trade deadline. Prices departure became a clear possibility when the Rays fell way behind in the AL East race earlier this season. Tampa Bay has played much better over the last month and entered Thursday only 5 1/2 games behind a wild card -- but the Rays decided to deal their ace anyway. "Compared to the other possibilities, it was by far the most prudent thing that we could do for the best interests of the franchise," said Andrew Friedman, Tampa Bays vice-president of baseball operations. "If you look ahead to next year, it would have been really challenging to be as good as we want to be within our situation, with David taking up that meaningful of a percentage of our payroll. So everything we do is in the vein of how to be competitive in the near term and also the long term." Tweeted Rays manager Joe Maddon: "No fun losing a David Price. Hate it. But we have to do what is best for our group. Continue to move it forward and thats what weve done." Tampa Bay signed Price to a $14 million deal for this season, avoiding arbitration, but he isnt eligible for free agency until after next season. That means Detroits rotation -- which also includes Anibal Sanchez and Rick Porcello -- should be impressive in 2015 even if Scherzer leaves via free agency this off-season. "Were trying to win this year, but we do have David Price for next year," Dombrowski said. "Thats helpful." The Tigers are without a World Series championship since 1984. Last seasons team lost to Boston in the AL championship series. Detroit had to give up quite a bit to get Price. Smyly actually started Thursdays game and pitched five innings. The 25-year-old left-hander is 6-9 with a 3.93 ERA this season. Smyly said he found out about the trade on social media, and Dombrowski came in and told him soon thereafter. "Didnt see it coming," he said. "These guys are awesome. We have a great team, a winning team. So its hard to say goodbye, but its part of baseball. Happens to everybody." Jackson is hitting .273 and has been Detroits regular centre fielder throughout this run of division titles. The 23-year-old Franklin hit .294 in 75 games this season with Triple-A Tacoma. He appeared in 17 games with the Mariners, hitting .128. "Its not waving a white flag at all," Rays president Matt Silverman said. "If your team plays to the level that it can, especially considering all the head-to-head games we have within our division, we have a chance to make up the deficit and get into the playoffs. Its more difficult without David, but if the rest of the team plays up to their potential, were going to be playing meaningful games in September." With a lineup anchored by Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez and Ian Kinsler -- and that remarkable rotation -- Detroit has remained in first place for almost all of 2014. The Tigers tried to shore up one trouble spot -- the bullpen -- by trading for Joakim Soria last week. Now Detroit has emerged with Price in another bold move aimed at bringing a championship to the Motor City. "I dont know if were going to win by any means -- theres other good clubs," Dombrowski said. "But getting the opportunity to add a guy like David Price doesnt come along very often."

The Indians scored twice in the top of the ninth, getting the go-ahead run on a wild pitch by closer Matt Lindstrom.

Hicham Khalouas late goal improved Almerias chances of avoiding relegation in a match dominated by contentious calls, including three penalties.

Wiggins, a 6-foot-8, 200-pound forward who plays his first exhibition game on Wednesday against Pitt State, was the top prospect in the class of 2013.MIAMI -- Shae Simmons didnt think he would make his major league debut in a close game. But the 23-year old reliever for the Atlanta Braves was ready nonetheless. Simmons struck out Jarrod Saltalamacchia to end the eighth inning in a one-run game as the Braves went on to beat the Miami Marlins 9-5 on Saturday. "I wasnt really thinking," Simmons said. "I thought I was done for the day and Id just come tomorrow, but luckily I went in and threw strikes." Veteran catcher Gerald Laird helped Simmons settle in with the Braves leading 6-5 with runners on first and second. "I told him, Dont worry about calling your game. Let me call the game, just throw it where I call it," Laird said. "And he did a good job of that." Simmons was one of six Braves relievers used to help Ervin Santana (5-2) win his first game since May 10 against the Cubs. "I drank a whole bottle of coffee because I thought I felt like I was about to doze off out there (in the bullpen)," Simmons said. "Then all of the guys just started talking and said to treat it like any other day." Jason Heyward and Freddie Freeman each drove in a pair of runs to lead the Braves offence, which pounded out 12 hits. "It was nice to add some runs up on the board," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "Guys got some good at-bats." Santana (5-2) allowed three runs and seven hits in six innings. He struck out four. Craig Kimbrel got the last two outs for his 15th save of the season, which tied him with John Smoltz for the most saves in franchise history with 154. "I know if John would have done it his whole career he would have had a lot more," Kimbrel said. "It is nice to say Im a part of something like that, but then again Ive had a lot of opportunities and played on some good ball teams in the first three or four years. If it werent for that case, we wouldnt be sitting here talking about this right now." Derek Dietrich and Casey McGehee each drove in two runs and Christian Yelich had three hits for the Marlins as starter Jacob Turner (1-3) took the loss allowing five runs in five innings. Six Miami pitchers combined to walk nine batters and three errors led to two unearned runs.dddddddddddd "Were walking way too many guys and then you cap that off with sloppy defence," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. "Were going up against the best teams in baseball. To go out there and compete we have to play better baseball." Miami bench coach Rob Leary was ejected in the bottom of the eighth inning by home plate umpire Quinn Wolcott for arguing balls and strikes during an at-bat by Giancarlo Stanton with David Carpenter on the mound. "Everybody was yelling in there," Redmond said. "They just picked Rob, the poor guy. I have to give him some money." Immediately after the ejection Stanton singled and McGehee drove him home with a double to pull Miami within 6-4. Two batters later Marcell Ozuna brought the Marlins within a run with a base hit. Carpenter exited without recording an out in the four batters he faced. Simmons struck out slumping Jarrod Saltalamacchia to end the inning with runners on first and second. Saltalamacchia is 1 for his last 21. "The kid did a nice job," Gonzalez said of Simmons. The Braves scored three runs in the ninth off A.J. Ramos on Lairds RBI single, Ramiro Penas squeeze bunt, and B.J. Uptons bases loaded walk. "I just didnt find the zone, plain and simple," Ramos said. "Whenever I missed, it was too big of a miss." Kimbrel came on in the bottom of the ninth with two runners on and the game appeared to be over on a ground ball by Stanton, but Pena dropped a routine throw to second on a fielders choice, which loaded the bases for Miami. Kimbrel calmly retired McGehee to end the game. "We played a good ball game today, we hit the ball when we needed to and we pitched when we needed to," Kimbrel said. NOTES: Kimbrels save percentage of 90.1 (154 for 171) ranks third all-time among Major League pitchers with at least 150 opportunities. ... Marlins RHP Carter Capps (elbow) will get a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews on Wednesday. ...

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - For a team seemingly so reliant on megastars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, the Pittsburgh Penguins sure do seem to handle their business when forced to play without them.David Perron and Brandon Sutter scored power-play goals less than 4 minutes apart in the third period and the Penguins rallied for a 5-3 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night. Pittsburgh snapped a four-game losing streak and somehow improved to 9-0-1 in their last 10 games with both Malkin and Crosby — who have a combined three MVPs between them — out of the lineup.Even though they werent playing you want to make sure to prove to everyone that you can still play, Perron said. We found a way to win without them.Kris Letang had a career-high five assists in his return to the lineup after missing a week with concussion-like symptoms. Nick Spaling, Steve Downie and Patric Hornqvist also scored for Pittsburgh. Thomas Greiss stopped 19 shots as Pittsburgh beat the Jets for the 14th straight time at home.This one, however, came with a slightly different look. Rather than the sometimes dazzling play of Crosby and Malkin, the Penguins rode the streaking Perron — who has six goals in nine games since arriving in a trade from Edmonton on Jan. 2 — and a gritty performance from a patchwork lineup.Perron tied the game at 3 at 4:23 of the third period by jabbing the puck in between the legs of Winnipeg goaltender Ondrej Pavelec and Sutter put the Penguins in front 7:52 into the third when his centring pass from behind the goal line somehow deflected off Pavelec and into the net. All five Pittsburgh scores came with players in close proximity to the goal mouth.We got to that area better than we have, Penguins coach Mike Johnston said. Its been an emphasis for us. Weve got to get to the paint. Weve got to get to the blue area.Adam Lowry, Jacob Trouba and Chris Thorburn scored for the Jets, who saw their five-game winning streak snapped when they couldnt protect a third-period lead. Pavelec made 25 saves but was sloppy in the third period.Lowry gave Winnipeg the lead 59 seconds into the third before Perron and Sutter delivered on Pittsburghs pieced together power play.We were able to get a couple leads throughout the course of the game, we just werent able to hold them, Thorburn said. So, its unfortunate.The Penguins limped into the All-Star break with their longest losing streak of the season and were forced to start the second half without their franchise cornerstones. Crosby received an injection last Thursday to treat a lower-body injury suffered against Montreal earlier this month and missed the All-Star Game. While Crosby could return on Wednesday in Washington, Malkin is not skating at the moment and could miss a week or more.For a night anyway, Pittsburgh survived without them.Having the blossoming Perron in place certainly helped. Buried on the third line in Edmonton, Perron has become the kind of scoring threat Pittsburgh needed to take some of the pressure off Crosby.Playing with Sid the last little while brought me the confidence, said Perron, who had just five goals in 38 games with Edmonton before the trade. Just trying to carry the wave.Spaling gave the Penguins a 1-0 lead 7:09 into the game following a pretty sequence in which Letang hit Perron with a long stretch pass. Perron drew two defenders and Pavelec as he streaked down the right side. Perrons centring pass landed right on Spalings blade and he flipped it into a wide-open net.Letangs assist was the 200th of his career. He added four more a week after taking a jarring hit from Philadelphias Zac Rinaldo that left the former Norris Trophy-finalist with concussion-like symptoms. He missed a shootout loss to Chicago last week but responded with sublime play on a night the Penguins needed it.I liked every decision he made, Johnston said. He made it with speed and he made it quick. He didnt hang on to it.NOTES: The Penguins traded forward Marcel Goc to St. Louis for centre Maxim Lapierre after the game. ... Crosby did not play on the same night the team gave away a bobblehead in his honour. ... Penguins D Rob Scuderi played in his 400th game with the team. ... The Jets play at Philadelphia on Thursday. ... Winnipeg fell to 13-5-4 against the Eastern Conference. ... The Jets did not have a power play. Pittsburgh went 2 for 3 with the man advantage. Denver Nuggets Store . With the win, the Marlies complete a three-game series sweep of the Admirals and move on to the second round of the Calder Cup playoffs. T.J. Brennan added an empty netter with less than 25 seconds remaining for his second of the playoffs. Denver Nuggets Gear . Mark Van Guilder, Austin Watson and Colton Sissons also scored for the Admirals (22-13-10), who are 2-0-2 in their last four outings, while Roussel tacked on an assist for a two-point night. Greg Pateryn scored once for the Bulldogs (20-22-4), who lost their fifth straight contest, and also assisted on Gabriel Dumonts goal. https://www.cheapnuggets.com/.Y. -- The New York Islanders were merely content with a lopsided victory.

Stitched Nuggets Jerseys . -- Chris Tillman paid no attention to the Baltimore bullpen as it started to stir in the ninth inning.The Vancouver Canucks will try to aid their slim playoff chances by snapping a three-game slide when they welcome the Los Angeles Kings for Saturdays clash at Rogers Arena. Vancouver is 0-2-1 over its last three games and has dropped the first two tests of a five-game homestand in regulation. The slide has damaged the clubs already fragile playoff hopes, and the Canucks enter Saturday seven points out of the Western Conferences last postseason berth with only five games left on their schedule. Canucks captain Henrik Sedin is expected back in the lineup tonight after missing four games. The Kings, meanwhile, officially earned a fifth straight trip to the postseason following Wednesdays home win over Phoenix. Vancouver will try to avoid getting swept by the Kings in the season series on Saturday. Los Angeles is 4-0 versus the Canucks this season and has won seven of the last 10 meetings between the clubs. The Kings halted a two-game skid in Vancouver with a 3-2 overtime win at Rogers Arena on Nov. 25. After getting slammed by Anaheim 5-1 to begin this homestand on March 29, the Canucks then dropped a 3-1 decision in Tuesdays tilt against the New York Rangers. Henrik Lundqvist stopped 34 shots to help New York subdue the Canucks on Tuesday. Ryan Kesler had the only goal of the game for Vancouver, while Eddie Lack gave up all three goals on 31 shots in the loss. Lack is expected to get the start this evening. "I thought our team played hard and we had some chances that we just didnt finish," said Vancouver head coach John Tortorella. "I thought wee battled real hard and it was a good game.dddddddddddd" Tortorella went 0-2 against his former team this season, also losing to the Rangers 5-2 in New York on Nov. 30. Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault and Tortorella had switched cities in the offseason after both coaches were fired from their previous jobs. Vancouver fell to 18-13-6 as the home club this season. After tonights game, the Canucks will complete the homestand with tests against Anaheim and Colorado. The Kings have won seven of their last nine games, but the playoff-bound club has dropped two of its past three tilts. One night after clinching its postseason spot with a 4-0 win over the Coyotes, Los Angeles was handed a 2-1 regulation defeat in Thursdays game at San Jose. Antti Niemi stopped 26 shots to help lead the Sharks, who assured themselves of finishing no lower than third in the Pacific Division. Los Angeles is now locked into the third spot in the division and will be the guest in its first- round playoff matchup against either Anaheim or San Jose. Jordan Nolan had the only goal of the game for the Kings. Martin Jones gave up both goals on 21 shots in the loss. Also, L.A. saw defenseman Drew Doughty leave the game in the first period with a possible shoulder injury after checking Tyler Kennedy. Doughty, who was playing in his 199th consecutive game, is questionable for Saturdays tilt. The Kings had an eight-game road winning streak snapped on Thursday. The club is 22-13-3 as the guest this season and is making the second stop on a four- game road trip tonight. ' ' '

(SportsNetwork.com) - There will be afternoon basketball in Boston on New Years Eve, as the Celtics entertain the Sacramento Kings at TD Garden. The Celtics look to stop a four-game losing streak Wednesday and suffered a 101-88 loss at Washington on Saturday. Former Celtic Paul Pierce led the Wizards with 17 points and Jeff Green scored a game-high 23 points in defeat. They were into us. They were physical. They were aggressive, Celtics coach Brad Stevens said of the Wizards. Washington, which led 30-12 after 12 minutes, had a 48-36 advantage in rebounds, scored 22 points off 18 Boston turnovers and shot 50 percent from the floor. Kelly Olynyk had 15 points and Jared Sullinger scored 12 for the Celtics, who lost five in a row from Nov. 21-Dec. 2. Boston is 2-7 against teams from the Western Conference and will also host Dallas on this quick stay in Beantown. In injury news for the Celtics, Sullinger (ankle) and Marcus Thornton (calf) are questionable Wednesday. The Kings opened a four-game road trip with Mondays 107-99 loss at Brooklyn, as Rudy Gay and DeMarcus Cousins combined for 49 points. Gay scored a game- best 25 points and Cousins added 24 to go along with 13 rebounds. Darren Collison chipped in 16 points and eight assists for Sacramento, which turned the ball over 21 times for 25 Brooklyn points and has lost five in a row on the road. Thats too many, Kings coach Tyrone Corbin said of the turnovers. The Nets posted a 30-16 scoring advantage in the second and used an 8-2 run for a 101-90 lead with just over three minutes left. The Kings never threatened after that. Sacramento is 5-8 away from home and has lost eight of its last 10 games. It will also visit Minnesota and Detroit on the eastern swing. Gay and Cousins have been playing well, but the Kings havent been able to benefit from the production. Gay has scored 20-plus points six times in the last eight games, while Cousins has contributed 12 double-doubles in the previous 13 contests. He has 16 on the season. The Kings and Celtics will play the first of two meetings this season and are scheduled to square off again Feb. 20 in California. The two teams split a pair of games last season. Boston has won the last six games in this series at home. Bob Dandridge Jersey .

WINNIPEG -- Winnipeg Jets defenceman Jacob Trouba has been diagnosed with a mild neck strain after suffering discomfort while playing for the United States at the world hockey championship in Belarus. "After consultation with the Team USA medical staff and officials, it was determined that he should return to Winnipeg as a precaution due to his previous injury history," Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff said Wednesday in a statement. "Jacob flew to Winnipeg this past weekend and met with team doctors for a series of tests which revealed he had sustained a mild neck strain. "This will not affect Jacobs off-season training or preparation for next seasons training camp in any way." Trouba missed over a month of action with the Jets this past season due to a neck injury. He had 29 points (10 goals, 19 assists) over 65 games in his rookie campaign. In four games with the U.S., the 20-year-old blue-liner had three points (2-1) and averaged over 23 minutes of ice time.

Brian McCann Jersey Braves ... maybe even more than that. Maybe all season I have to take a few blows.Johannesburg, South Africa (SportsNetwork.com) - After Charl Schwartzel surrendered a 4-shot lead over his final five holes, Andy Sullivan went on to birdie the first playoff hole and defeat the South African to win the South African Open Championship on Sunday. Schwartzel, who led Sullivan by four shots heading to the 14th hole, made two bogeys and a double-bogey down the stretch to blow his lead and force a playoff with the Englishman. From the left rough and under a tree on the first playoff hole, Sullivan hit an incredible approach shot to within 10 feet and he knocked in the subsequent putt to earn his first career victory on the European Tour. Its unbelievable, Sullivan said. After Saturday I didnt think I stood much of a chance with Charl getting ahead that far. I just dug in there yesterday and today and found myself in a position where I had a chance to win. My caddie said over the last few holes no regrets and Ive definitely got no regrets over the last few holes, especially the playoff hole. Sullivan, the second-round leader, rebounded after a 74 on Saturday and fired a 5-under 67 Sunday, while Schwartzel carded a 2-over 74. The duo finished regulation tied at 11-under-par 277. To just play on the European Tour is something Ive wanted to do my whole life, so to win an event just caps it all off and to do it in South Africa where I have always enjoyed playing, it has just been an incredible week, said Sullivan. Lee Slattery finished with a 3-under 69 and he ended alone in third at 10- under 278. Pablo Martin Benavides also shot a 69 and he finished in fourth at 9-under 279. Schwartzel entered the final round with a 5-shot lead over Matthew Fitzpatrick and David Drysdale, while Sullivan sat seven shots back of the lead. Fitzpatrick shot a 73 to end tied for fifth with six others at 7-under 281, while Drysdale (74) finished tied for 11th at minus-6. Playing five groups ahead of Schwartzel on the final day, Sullivan appeared to have only a slim chance of catching the leader. In fact, Sullivan made the turn at just 1-under for the day with birdies on two and six to go along with a bogey on eight. Schwartzel was even par through seven after a birdie on five and a bogey on seven. Sullivan moved to within five of the leader with another birdie on No. 10, but the big shot that gave Sullivaan momentum came on No.dddddddddddd. 12. With Schwartzel through eight, Sullivan chipped in from off the green for eagle on the par-4 12th to move to minus-10, just three behind Schwartzel. It was virtually a two-player race down the stretch, although it appeared as if nobody was going to catch Schwartzel. The 30-year-old South African made a gain on 12, while Sullivan later poured in a birdie of his own on 16, keeping Schwartzels lead at three. Another birdie by Schwartzel on 13 had him looking good with a 4-shot lead, but then it all fell apart. With Sullivan finished at minus-11, the downfall started for Schwartzel when he missed a short par putt on the par-3 14th, dropping his advantage back to three. Two holes later, Schwartzel flew his approach on 16 over the green. His chip shot went well by the hole and he three-putted for double-bogey. Just like that, Schwartzels lead was down to one. It only got worse for Schwartzel as his tee shot on the par-3 17th went well right. All he could do was chip on and two-putt for bogey, tying him with Sullivan. Schwartzel nearly made a long birdie putt at the last to win, but he settled for par and headed to the playoff with Sullivan. Back on the 18th hole, Schwartzels tee shot was errant to the right and Sullivans went well left. All Schwartzel could do was lay up in the fairway and watch Sullivan stick a spectacular second shot to within 10 feet. Schwartzel did well to put the pressure on Sullivan when he stuck his approach to three feet and all but secure par. Sullivan came through in the clutch, however, as he drained his birdie putt for the win. My caddie said expect him to hole (his third shot) and he nearly did, said Sullivan. I was just delighted just to hit the green and have a chance to win and Im just glad I took it. NOTES: Six of Schwartzels nine European Tour victories have come in South Africa, but he has never won this event ... Schwartzel finished tied for second here back in 2005 ... Prior to this event, Sullivans best finish on tour came last season at the Trophee Hassan II, where he ended runner-up ... Sullivan also shared the first-round lead with Jbe Kruger ... Sullivan earned 158,500 euros with this victory ... Next up for the European Tour is the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship next week, where Pablo Larrazabal won last season. ' ' '

Each week, The Reporters put their thumbs out to the good and the bad in the world of sports. This week they discuss the Philadelphia 76ers, Gregg Popovich, Royal and Ancient Golf Club and Bill Belichick. Bruce Arthur, National Post My thumb is up to the Philadelphia 76ers, proud possessors of a win streak for the first time since two weeks before the Olympics began. Any task worth doing is worth doing with commitment, and while you can argue whether tanking to get a good draft pick should be worth doing, thats the system, and the Sixers have been crafting a masterpiece. Before Saturday night they had lost 26 in a row, 29 of 30, and 36 of 39, and 27 straight losses would have a set a new record for consecutive defeats. But Saturday in Philly, the Sixers pulled one out, blowing out the hapless Detroit Pistons by 25 and getting a standing ovation. It was a raft in an ocean, a blip in the sky. But now, no matter what, they can say this: it could have been worse. Steve Simmons, Sun Media My thumb is up to Gregg Popovich, who just might be the greatest coach in the history of professional sport. And I dont say that lightly with terrific respect for the work done by Scotty Bowman and Phil Jackson and Bill Belichick, and yeah, certainly Vince Lombardi. Put your championships aside for a moment - this is the 15th straight season in which Popovichs San Antonio Spurs have won between 50 and 63 games in the NBA. To put that into perspective, thats the same number of 50-win seasons combined over that time that the Knicks, Celtics, Bulls, Warriors, Nets, Wizards, Pacers, 76ers, Bobcats, Hawks, and Raptors have won. Having Tim Duncan helps. But Duncan at 37 is slowing down. Heading to another 60 win season, Gregg Popovich doesnt seem to be. Michael Farber, Sports Illustrated My thumb is up to the R&A, for finally entering a new century. The 20th. The Royal and Ancient is urging its membership to allow women to become members of the venerable St. Andrews golf club in Scotland when it votes in September. This is a mere 260 years after the home of golf was founded, which qualifies as progress. Two other courses in the Open Championship rotation, Muirfield and Royal St. Georges, have yet to tiptoe down this perilous path to equality. By comparison, the nice gentlemen at Augusta National, which started accepting female members in 2012 - hello, Condoleeza Rice! - look like wild-eyed progressives. Dave Hodge, TSN My thumb is up to New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick, for making me seem less crazy than others think I am. I have been saying for years that the complexities of video review are confusing and unnecessary, and that a better system would be a very simple system that allows anything to be challenged. And no less an authority than Belichick is leading a push in this direction in the NFL. Never mind "this can be challenged under certain circumstances, but not that under any circumstances"--as Belichick says, "if a coach thinks his team has been victimized by a bad call, he should be able to question it, and its up to him to use the limited number of challenge flags with that in mind."  As I say, "challenges might actually be fewer--same with wrong calls--and replay rules would be simpler. You can challenge those assumptions, but Bill Belichick wont. Stitched Diamondbacks Jerseys . The top-ranked Djokovic also beat Gael Monfils and then routed Roger Federer en route to his first Abu Dhabi title. "Its always great to win a title. This is the best way to start the 2012 season," Djokovic said. Chad Moeller Jersey .Y. - The NFL has fined Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch $20,000 for making an obscene gesture during last Sundays NFC championship game, a person with knowledge of the fine told The Associated Press on Thursday. https://www.cheapdiamondbacksjerseys.us/...backs.html. Coverage on TSN is underway now while action resumes on TSN2 at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt. TSN GO also offers TSN subscribers bonus online coverage, with live streams of all four venues. Steven Souza Jersey . -- Kole Calhoun homered and drove in three runs, Albert Pujols also went deep and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Chicago White Sox 8-4 Friday night. Corbin Martin Jersey . Francis told several hundred members of the European Olympic Committees that when sport "is considered only in economic terms and consequently for victory at every cost . With the NHL Draft coming up on June 27 and free agency opening on July 1, discussions between NHL general managers will be heating up over the month of June. Each day this month, TSN.ca will provide the latest rumours, reports and speculation from around the NHL beat. Good as gone? According to Andy Strickland of Fox Sports Midwest, defenceman Dan Boyle is highly unlikely to sign with the New York Islanders. Strickland reports that Boyle, 37, is looking to sign with a contender. The Islanders traded a conditional 2015 fifth-round draft pick for the rights to the unrestricted free agent last week. If Boyle were to sign with the Islanders, the pick returning to the San Jose Sharks would improve to a fourth-round selection. Update: Arthur Staple of Newsday reports Boyle will let the Islanders know by the end of this week whether he is interested in contract negotiations with the team. Staying in Beantown? Joe Haggerty of CSNNE.com reports the Boston Bruinns have started contract negotiations with veteran forward Jarome Iginla.dddddddddddd Iginla finished the regular season tied for the Bruins lead in goals and led the Bruins in playoff goals with five. According to Haggerty, the Bruins are pushing to re-sign to the 36-year-old to a contract very similar to his one-year 2013-2014 deal, which paid him $1.8 million. Price too high? David Staples of the Edmonton Journal considers the possibility of the Oilers acquiring either Nazem Kadri or Jake Gardiner from the Toronto Maple Leafs. Staples reports that the Oilers could have interest in both players to improve the team and mentions that both played under Oilers head coach Dallas Eakins with the Toronto Marlies. However, Staples believes the price for either player will be too high for the Oilers unless the team decides to make a "major effort" by offering Nail Yakupov, David Perron or their first round draft pick.

ZURICH, Switzerland -- Two footballers in El Salvador and another in Moldova have had their domestic suspensions for match-fixing extended worldwide.

That was the question of all speculative questions as last Sunday started. And after the blocked punt by Seattle and the six fast special teams points I thought; here we go again -- an atmosphere advantage and a Seattle dominate win. But I was wrong. It was just a challenging moment to overcome and the Cowboys did that. Whether you like them or hate them, you have to respect them for the 30-23 win. Are there concerns? There always are. First, you have to wonder if DeMarco Murray can last the season as a healthy running back. If he does, that in itself will be a major accomplishment. Between Murray and Marshawn Lynch, we saw the two most physical and extreme effort laden running backs in football. Lynch has been able to stay healthy over time and perhaps Murray will too. If he does, this is a playoff year in Dallas but even if not, Joseph Randal can be a primary runner. His contribution is not as dramatic as Murray but effective in its own way. The second heath issue in Dallas is Tony Romo at quarterback. Did you get the impression that maybe something is not 100 per cent? He took a tough hit on one play and a few pushes on another and even at the midpoint of the season, he does not always participate on Wednesday practice. His value is so significant when you consider Romo has 26 fourth quarter comeback wins since 2006. The last one, on Sunday, was just maybe his best. This was a dominate win; 23 first downs to 9, 162 yards rushing to 80, 401 total yards to 206. And the big one to me was time of possession. Dallas kept the ball 37 minutes and 37 seconds while Seattle had 22 minutes and 21 seconds. Final score of 30-23 and no luck involved. In Buffalo, the Patriots woon 37-22 but I was more impressed with the Bills.ddddddddddddAfter destroying the Bengals on the ground, New England only ran for 50 yards on 27 attempts. The Bills defensive line is very good, from Mario Williams to Kyle Williams to Marcell Dareus, but Jerry Hughes at 6 2 and 254lbs has some Cam Wake-type skills and Canadian Stefan Charles has emerged as the fifth best defensive lineman especially against the run. If Hughes performs, the Bills will continue to excel at a very high level. And to think no Kiko Alonso in the middle. Last hidden reason for the Bills perceived success despite the 37 points allowed; former Detroit head coach and present defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz. He was an amazing success in Tennessee when he was with Jeff Fisher and he is creating those good Tennessee defenses in Buffalo. With New England, they won the game but at a high price with no Jerod Mayo on defense and no Steven Ridley on offense. That is a high price. In Cleveland, I cant remember the last time I saw a final score of Cleveland 31 and Pittsburgh 10. After so much hype between Manziel and Hoyer, it is Hoyer that is playing and Manziel watching. For some reason I like that. Brian Hoyer is a free agent next year, I doubt he will get Brady/Manning/Bress/Kaepernick/Rogers/Newton or Dalton money but he will be set for life and that means a lot. And finally in Cincinnati, Mike Nugent missed a 36 yard field goal to win in what ended up as a tie 37-37 with Carolina. The vast majority of players will say nothing, do nothing and stay aloof. But not all. My hope is Nugent has an opportunity again in the near future to hit a 36 yard field goal to win. It is the only way to forgive and forget in the world of win not matter what. ' ' '

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers can put a tumultuous off-season behind them. They have a rusty Tony Romo to thank for making the opener a little easier. Kaepernick threw two touchdown passes to Vernon Davis, one after the first of three interceptions from Romo, and the 49ers cruised to a 28-17 win over the sloppy Cowboys on Sunday. The 49ers (1-0) came in with questions about their defence, missing key players because of injuries or suspensions. Defensive tackle Ray McDonald got the start just a week after his arrest in a domestic violence case. The secondary put all those issues to rest, getting Chris Cullivers 35-yard fumble return for a touchdown on the second play of the game and two of the Romo picks on their way to a 28-3 halftime lead. "Theres been a lot of rhetoric," said coach Jim Harbaugh, who improved to 4-0 in season openers. "This game was about steel in the spine. When it comes to 49er players, thats where they excel." For one game, it didnt matter that linebacker Aldon Smith will miss the first nine games on a suspension over off-the-field issues and fellow linebacker NaVorro Bowman is out until midseason because of a knee injury. After Culliver picked up a loose ball stripped from DeMarco Murray and ran untouched for a score, safety Eric Reid returned Romos first interception 48 yards to the Dallas 2, setting up Kaepernicks second scoring toss to Davis. "Our front seven did a good job getting pressure on the quarterback, and the secondary played well," Reid said. Romo looked like a quarterback who was limited in the off-season and training camp, not a good start for a team trying to avoid tying a franchise record with a fifth straight year of missing the playoffs. He didnt see Reid on a throw to Dez Bryant, then didnt see wide-open receiver Dwayne Harris for what would have been an easy touchdown. Instead he forced a pass to Jason Witten that was intercepted by Patrick Willis in the end zone. The picks kept coming even after starting San Francisco cornerbacks Tramaine Brock (toe) and Culliver (concussion) had been knocked out of the game. Backup Perrish Cox had his second career interception when Romo threw deep to Bryant in double coverage. "I felt comfortable," said Romo, who threw for 281 yards and a late touchdown. "Just couple poor decisions that I made tonight." It didnt take Kaepernick long to put that rough preseason behind him, leading the 49ers 80 yards in just three plays on their first possession. He stepped out of an ankle tackle by Jeremy Mincey and threw 29 yards on the run to Davis, who juggled the ball as the crossed the goal line before holding on for a 14-3 lead. The 49ers also had an efficient drive in their 2-minute offence to finish the first half, with Kaepernick throwing for 39 yards leading to Carlos Hydes 4-yard scoring run for a 28-3 halftime lead. "Everyone was ready to get to the season, ready to play and ready to start putting these wins together," said Kaepernick, who was 16 of 23 for 201 yards without an interception. When Romo wasnt throwing interceptions, the Dallas offence was getting false-start penalties and using timeouts to avoid delay-of-game penalties. Part of the problem was the noise from large swaths of red-clad 49ers fans seeing their team for the first time in the regular season in the $1.2 billion home of the Cowboys. "I noticed that," Harbaugh said of the crowd. "Much appreciated. Means a lot." Murray bounced back from the fumble on his first carry of the season to get 71 yards in the first quarter and 118 with a touchdown for the game. But he didnt get the ball on second-and-1 from the San Francisco 2 with a chance to tie the score early. Instead, Romo was sacked and Dallas settled for a field goal. NOTES: 49ers RB Frank Gore had 63 yards rushing, becoming the 29th NFL player with 10,000 for his career. Hes also the 10th player with 10,000 yards and 10 seasons with the same team. ... Bryant stayed down for several moments after Reids interception return and later was treated for dehydration. He had four catches for 55 yards. ... Davis now has 53 receiving touchdowns, most of the NFL since 2009, playoffs included. Detroit WR Calvin Johnson, who plays Monday night, has 52. ... Cowboys S C.J. Spillman and LB Justin Durant left the game with groin injuries. ... The Cowboys lost for the first time (11-1) when Murray, a fourth-year back, had at least 20 carries.

R.A. Dickey faces Anibal Sanchez in the opener. Toronto was looking to gain ground on AL East-leading Baltimore to kick off the week, but lost two of three to the Orioles. That left the Blue Jays five games out of first place heading into tonights action. The Jays were bested 2-1 in Thursdays rubber match, with Anthony Gose homering and J.A. Happ giving up a two-run blast to Caleb Joseph in the fourth inning that was the difference in the clubs fifth loss in six games. Happ yielded five hits and struck out a career-high 12 over eight innings. "Our lineup is what it is right now," said Blue Jays manager John Gibbons. "Some nights youre going to get that big hit, some nights youre not." On the same day that Toronto placed third baseman Brett Lawrie on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left oblique, designated hitter Melky Cabrera was hit on the right elbow by a pitch in the first inning on Thursday. He tried to remain in the game, but exited in the third and is day-to-day after x-rays came back negative. The Blue Jays swept a three-game series in Detroit from June 3-5 after losing five of seven to the Tigers a season ago. The Tiger are coming off losing three of four against the Yankees in New York, despite running out three former Cy Young Award winners -- including David Price in his Detroit debut -- and a 13-game winner in Rick Porcello. Porcello took the 1-0 loss in Thursdays finale despite scattering nine hits over seven innings of one-run ball. His offense did little to help, going 0- for-4 with runners in scoring position one game after an 0-for-7 showing in such situatiions in Wednesdays setback.dddddddddddd "Our guys pitched great, but as well as we pitched and played defense, our offense didnt match up," Tigers catcher Alex Avila remarked. Detroit saw its lead atop the American League Central over the Kansas City Royals trimmed to 2 1/2 games and will pin its hopes tonight on Sanchez. The right-hander has split his last six starts, going 3-3 with a 4.93 earned run average, but is coming off a dominating 4-0 win over Colorado on Sunday. Sanchez hurled seven scoreless innings of two-hit ball while striking out a season-high 12 batters without issuing a walk. Sanchez became the first Tigers pitcher to fan 12 or more without a walk since Max Scherzer on June 17, 2012 against the Rockies. "He used his fastball perfectly," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. "He threw it in, he threw it out and as a result, all of his other pitches were much more effective." The 30-year-old Sanchez is 8-5 on the year with a 3.37 ERA and did not get a decision versus Toronto on June 3 despite seven scoreless innings. He also gave up just two hits in that one, striking out five to no walks. Sanchez is 2-2 in his career with a 4.20 ERA versus Toronto, which counters with its own former Cy Young winner in Dickey. However, the knuckleball specialist is just 9-11 with a 4.03 ERA this year after getting denied a third straight winning start on Saturday. Dickey instead lost an 8-2 decision in Houston, charged with five runs on nine hits over seven-plus innings. The 39-year-old righty is 6-2 with a save and 3.84 ERA in 16 previous meetings, including nine starts, versus Detroit. That includes a win on June 4 as he yielded two runs -- on solo homers to Miguel Cabrera and Ian Kinsler -- seven hits and four walks over just five innings. ' ' '

NEW YORK -- Former NHL defenceman Stephane Quintal is the NHLs new senior vice-president of player safety. Hes been doing the job on an interim basis since Brendan Shanahan left the position in April to become president of the Toronto Maple Leafs. The league says it interviewed many qualified candidates but determined the player safety department would be "served best under Quintals continued leadership." "Stephane Quintal has been dedicated to the mission of the Department of Player Safety since its creation for the opening of the 2011-12 season and has demonstrated over the last several months that he is uniquely suited to lead the department going forward," commissioner Gary Bettman said in a statement. "Brendan Shanahan established and built a highly functioning and well-run department in his three years at its helm. Among his most important decisions was hiring Stephane Quintal to be part of his supervisory team." Bettman said Quintal proved himself during last seasons playoffs. "Tasked with running the department last spring during the most intensely competitive and closely scrutinized part of our season -- the final regular-season weekend and the entire Stanley Cup playoffs -- Stephane proved that he clearly was up to the challenge," said Bettman. "I am confident that he is the right man for the job." During his 16 NHL seasons with the Boston Bruins, St. Louis Blues, Winnipeg Jets, Montreal Canadiens, New York Rangers and Chicago Blackhawks, Quintal recorded 63 goals and 180 assists with 1,320 penalty minutes in 1,037 career games.

Nashville, TN (SportsNetwork.com) - Tennessee State football coach Rod Reed agreed in principle to a contract extension Friday. The school said details of the contracts length and Reeds salary would be ironed out at a later date. Reed, who has coached at Tennessee State since 2003, took over the program in December 2009 after James Webster Jr. resigned and is 32-27 in five seasons at the helm. The former Tennessee State linebacker has led the Tigers to three consecutive non-losing seasons, including a 6-6 mark this year. Its the first time the program has finished .500 or better three seasons in a row since 1984-86. Reed said in a statement he was very thankful the school showed a commitment to him.

The Arena das Dunas in the northeastern city of Natal sustained minor damage during the protests, but demonstrators stayed away on Sunday and officials said the stadium passed its first test, with only minor adjustments needed going forward. Work was being done until the final moments before the inaugural match, but the doubleheader between local clubs in front of tens of thousands of fans was not affected. Before the matches, local media reported that police arrested two men accused of firing shots at a group of rival fans a few kilometres from the stadium. No one was injured. Demonstrators complaining about the costs of the World Cup destroyed some protective fencing and set fire to temporary tents outside the Arena das Dunas late Saturday. Local media reported security guards fired shots into the air to disperse the crowd. The Tribuna do Norte newspaper said 19 people were detained. The protest was part of a nationwide movement by those oopposed the level of spending on the World Cup.dddddddddddd. About 1,000 people protested in Sao Paulo and smaller demonstrations took place in several other cities. Demonstrators attacked an empty police vehicle, torched a small car and smashed the windows of banks in Sao Paulo. Authorities responded with tear gas and rubber bullets and detained more than 100 people in South Americas biggest city. On its Facebook page, the Anonymous Rio protest group billed "Operation Stop the World Cup" as this years first act against the football tournament. The Confederations Cup was marked by violent protests last year and more are expected during the World Cup. The Arena das Dunas was the seventh World Cup stadium to be completed, with five still being worked on less than five months before the opening game on June 12. Those stadiums are mostly expected to be ready in time, but there is doubt about whether Curitiba will remain a host city as the stadium there is running well behind schedule. Brazil had promised to hand over all 12 World Cup stadiums by the end of 2013. Six of them were ready for the Confederations Cup last year. ' ' '
