Dragic scores 19 as Heat rout Grizzlies 107-82

Posted on by

Goran Dragic and the Miami Heat got into a groove in the second half.

Big time.

“I thought Karl got off to a great start (against the Mavericks), and I thought that was important to play inside and out, and Jimmy was terrific, as was Taj (Gibson). Their toughness has added so much to our team. I thought Jamal (Crawford) and (Gorgui Dieng) gave us great minutes off the bench.”

In a bang-bang flurry of cuts, RedZone shows three straight touchdowns: Mohammed Sanu hits Julio Jones for a 51-yard touchdown bomb from the Wildcat formation; the Dolphins scoop up an errant snap to score a defensive TD; and Cam Newton runs it in on a bootleg on 3rd and goal at the goal line.

I will now embed the best of those three plays.

Mavericks: Dirk Nowitzki played his 65th regular-season game against Minnesota, the most for any player. Nowitzki scored 10 points in 25:22. It was the 1,421st game of his career, leaving him three behind Kevin Willis for sixth on the NBA’s all-time list. … Six players scored in double figures for Dallas. … Antonius Cleveland was the first player off the bench for the Mavericks and played a career-high 17:51. He helped hold Andrew Wiggins to 1-of-9 shooting early.

Robby Anderson makes a RIDICULOUS catch in double coverage for a touchdown. This marks his fifth straight game with a touchdown.

Vancouver was missing top-line forwards Bo Horvat (broken foot) and Sven Baertschi (fractured jaw), but players weren’t using that as an excuse.

Los Angeles now will look for its first three-game winning streak

Posted on by

Subbing in for an injured Brad Marchand (undisclosed injury) on a top scoring line with Patrice Bergeron, Heinen has two goals and an assist in his past three games. While the 22-year-old is sure to lose that precious gig once Marchand is ready to return, he remains an intriguing daily fantasy option in the meanwhile. Marchand has yet to even be cleared for contact in practice.

Los Angeles now will look for its first three-game winning streak, playing at Sacramento where Ball will have a much-anticipated rookie showdown against De’Aaron Fox.

Despite shooting just 8-of-26 overall and 3-of-12 from 3-point range over his past two games, Ball is playing some of his best basketball of the season because of the way he has rebounded.

“We were expecting what we got [from Ball] which is him to make winning plays,” Walton said of Ball’s fourth-quarter play. “… Zo has a knack for making winning plays and he is obviously showing that he is a very, very good rebounder and we needed that.”

The network last week announced it would present “the majority” of play-by-play coverage during Steelers vs. Titans via SkyCam, giving its audience a video game-like viewing experience. Yes, EA Sports’ “Madden” video game series has become that influential.

NBC’s experiment with SkyCam as the primary broadcast viewing angle is a direct result of the positive feedback the network received during and after it was forced to use the angle in Week 7, when thick New England fog rendered the customary sideline view useless in the second half of the Patriots’ win over the Falcons.

“We’ve long talked about using SkyCam more in the live play-by-play coverage of the game,” NBC producer Fred Gaudelli told SN. “However, what has stopped us is some of the system’s limitations.

After letting one slip away in New Orleans, the Redskins try to regroup Thursday against the Giants.

The Pistons enjoyed a productive weekend out west, winning back-to-back over the Clippers and Dubs.

Sat: The number of times the player missed a game. Players are not charged “Stiff” points for sitting out, nor does it impact their overall consistency rating (CR), but it hurts their overall start percentage (Start%).

It is not clear when Gordon suffered the foot injury, nor has its exact nature been specified, but it was enough to restrict him in practice daily. He comes into the game against the Patriots as questionable, but according to ESPN.com’s Eric Williams, Gordon said he plans to play Sunday.

When the strike began, McConkey was torn. He was a football player. He wanted to play football. But his whole life he had been taught that teammates stick together, that it is us against them. “As much as I wanted to cross that picket line,” he says, “I was a team guy and it was hard for me to do that.”

Former Attorney General of New Jersey Peter Harvey, an independent advisor appointed by the league, spoke to the media via phone about what they learned over the course of the investigation. Harvey said that he came to the conclusion that Elliott had been physically violent toward his former girlfriend.

In addition to the pink numbers on the AdvoCare and Fastenal Ford Fusions, all Roush Fenway Fords have sported ‘Driven for a Cause’ pink ribbon decals on the C-Post during the month of October. Roush Fenway personnel have supported the cause through at track apparel, wearing #DrivenForACause ribbons each weekend.

To make a dent in the Eastern Conference, the Pistons needed a player or two from their starting core to outperform expectations — and Tobias Harris obliged. He and CJ McCollum are the only players in the NBA this season to score 100 points while turning over the ball five times or fewer.

These are mostly fine except for the weird neck-striping.

After all, Glass had fired Crean, who fielded two Big Ten championship teams and three Sweet 16 squads in his nine years in Bloomington and was just one season removed from a Big Ten Coach of the Year campaign. But Glass was after national championships, even if the Hoosiers hadn’t claimed one in three decades. “I would argue their expectations cannot be met,” says one Division I assistant coach.

Back at the Cowboys headquarters, Prescott took a break from signing autographs to pull up a photo on his iPhone. He wanted to show off the new cleats Adidas designed for him to wear in the Oct. 8 game against the Packers, the first game of the NFL’s Crucial Catch campaign. The cleats were white with seven ribbons affixed to each side, each a different color to represent awareness for a different cancer. Near the heel was navy, for colon cancer.

I’m only mildly surprised the Dubs don’t have a ham-handed tech innovation weaved through their uniforms to represent their insufferable relationship with Silicon Valley.

Another team whose color scheme doesn’t really evoke its moniker. Why red, Raptors? I’m not sure what much else they could do, but these jerseys are pretty simple for a team named after a dinosaur. Maybe they should throw a triangular pattern on there inspired by an actual raptor’s feathery breast.

Duke Johnson Jr. (1.8 OTD) has scored three touchdowns at the midway point of the season, but his usage suggests he may not be able to match that total during his final eight games. Still the change-of-pace back behind Isaiah Crowell, Johnson has registered two carries from the opponent’s 1-yard line but no additional tries within the 17-yard line. The closest he has been to the end zone on a target is the 15-yard line. A lack of work near the goal line is nothing new for Johnson, who entered 2017 with three touchdowns and a 5.7 OTD in two seasons of work.

Elliott is third in the NFL in rushing with 690 yards in seven games.

“I [was] driving back from the party, and a little stressed out,” cubsfan333 told ESPN on Monday. “The party was pretty intense. A lot of kids, a lot of movement, a lot of candy.”

Had TCU and Penn State both won on Saturday and stayed undefeated, this could have been very neat and tidy for the committee. The Big 12 and Big Ten front-runners likely would have joined SEC heavyweights and unbeatens Alabama and Georgia in the initial top four, which will be released along with the entire top 25 on Tuesday (7 p.m. ET on ESPN and in the ESPN App). Instead, this looks to be a muddy mess of comparable one-loss teams, with Ohio State and Oklahoma potentially causing a great debate within the Selection Central meeting room.

Failla disagreed, writing that testimony from the NFL appeal hearing made it clear that Goodell was aware of the investigator’s views.

She also backed the NFL’s interest in timely penalties under its personal conduct policy, which three years ago was changed to stiffen penalties in domestic cases.

Elliott is third in the NFL in rushing with 690 yards in seven games. He’s tied for the league lead with six rushing touchdowns.

At the first stoppage, Lakers head coach Luke Walton called Ball over to chat, and Beverley went with him to eavesdrop. Four minutes into the first quarter, Beverley tangled with Ball at center-court, and Beverley shoved him to the floor. “Had to set the tone,” Beverley cooed. After the whistle, he climbed right back into Ball’s personal space. The Clipper bench erupted in approval.

Emmert said he’s confident that the NCAA governance model will survive, in part because no better alternative exists. If university leaders dissolved the NCAA, they would need another organization to direct college sports.bills_003
