Wall takes over, Wiz beat Raps 106-98 to tie series at 2-2

He raced to the other end of the court. When he returned to his team’s sideline, china nfl nike jerseys he threw a red towel, before being held back by teammates.

”I was beyond emotional. Beyond mad. Frustrated. Pretty much any synonym you can add,” Beal said. ”I told my team that we were going to win, regardless. Especially if we’ve got John still in the game, I love our chances.”

That would be John Wall, and Beal was exactly right. Wall took over down the stretch after his backcourt mate was done for the day, scoring or assisting on 10 of Washington’s last 14 points as the No. 8 seed Wizards came back to beat the No. 1 Raptors 106-98 Sunday night and even their Eastern Conference first-round playoff series at 2-all.

”When Brad went out,” Wall said, ”I knew I had to do whatever it took.”250

Wall finished with 27 points and 14 assists and, at the other end of the court, guarded All-Star DeMar DeRozan, making sure the Wizards would not be pushed to the brink of elimination ahead of Game 5 at Toronto.

Asked whether the official told him why that call was made, Beal replied: ”He wasn’t explaining that one. There was no explaining to do.”

Wizards center Marcin Gortat’s view of the officiating: ”I truly believe that some of those calls are very soft. I’ve never seen so many soft calls in the playoffs.”

After Beal left,buy nfl jerseys wholesale  the Raptors immediately went up by two, but Wall pulled the Wizards even with a layup that drew a goaltending call, then put the hosts in front to stay by feeding Markieff Morris for a layup off the glass.

With Beal cheerleading, jumping and waving his arms, Wall just kept producing, showing no signs of fatigue despite playing all 24 minutes in the second half. This is a guy who missed about two months of the regular season because of surgery on his left knee.

Rams still open-minded about Ndamukong Suh’s workload

Over the past eight years, no defensive lineman played more snaps than Ndamukong Suh, nfl jerseys cheap authentic who recently joined the Los Angeles Rams for his age-31 season.

From 2010 to 2017, Suh registered 6,773 snaps, 354 more than runner-up Calais Campbell during that stretch. Suh hasn’t necessarily slowed down in recent years, either. His 2,666 snaps over the past three seasons rank third among defensive linemen, trailing only Cameron Jordan and Khalil Mack.

The Rams are mindful of that, but they’re still uncertain about how cautious they will be.240

“I think that stuff will all sort itself out,” Rams coach Sean McVay said at the start of the offseason program last week. “I think what that says, as much as anything, is the durability and the way that he takes care of himself.”

Since being drafted second overall by the Detroit Lions in 2010, Suh has played in every game except the two he was suspended for in 2011. With the Miami Dolphins last year, he played in more than 90 percent of his team’s defensive snaps in four of Miami’s 16 games. He absorbed more than 80 percent of the defensive snaps in all but three of those weeks.

The Rams like to rotate their pass-rushers a little more than that. Aaron Donald at times took on a heavy workload, similar to Suh’s. But the Rams’ most often used defensive lineman played less than 80 percent of the team’s snaps six times and topped 90 percent in only two games.

Suh is uncommonly durable for an interior lineman who absorbs so much punishment. cheap nfl jerseys china But the Rams boast a unique amount of depth at his position. Donald might be the game’s most dominant defensive player, while Michael Brockers was an underrated interior lineman before moving outside to 5-technique last season.

Chargers plan to pick up fifth-year option for Melvin Gordon

During his pre-draft press conference on Monday, Los Angeles Chargers general manager nfl jersey wholesale Tom Telesco said the team plans on picking up the fifth-year option on workhorse running back Melvin Gordon’s rookie deal.

“I think right now the plan is to exercise the option,” Telesco said. “But right now we’re just focused on the draft.”

Gordon had his best season as a pro in 2017, topping the 1,000-yard mark for the first time in his three-year NFL career.239

The University of Wisconsin product played a full, 16-game season for the first time as a pro, finishing with a career-high 1,105 yards and 12 total touchdowns.

Gordon’s 1,581 total yards from scrimmage last season ranked fifth in the NFL. Gordon finished with a career-low one fumble in 2017 after fumbling eight times during his first two years.

“The way he finished the season, I’m very comfortable (with Melvin Gordon),” Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said at the NFL Scouting Combine. “I thought he was one of the best runners in the game the last four weeks. It just seems like the bigger the game, the better he plays.

“We’re going to have to monitor that knee a little bit. He was gimpy at the beginning of the season, I think, because he maybe pushed too much in training camp. Being around him for a year and knowing what he can handle, we’ll just have to do a better job of that. I’m very comfortable with Melvin Gordon.”

Only Todd Gurley nfl jerseys cheap authentic and Ezekiel Elliott (25) had more touchdowns than Gordon’s 24 total touchdowns over the last two seasons. Gordon, 25, has totaled 2,743 rushing yards and 18 rushing touchdowns, averaging 3.8 yards per carry.

Gordon is scheduled to make $1.9 million in 2018 in the fourth year of his rookie deal.

‘Bread’ is the man in playoff surge for the Blue Jackets

So far, so good. Columbus heads home to Nationwide Arena after taking a 2-0 lead over Washington in their first-round series on Sunday night, nfl official jerseys cheap a come-from-behind 5-4 overtime win in which Panarin contributed a pair of key assists.

Panarin led Columbus with 27 goals and 55 assists, and his 82 points were the most in a single season in franchise history. His plus/minus of 23 and average of just over 20 minutes on the ice per game were career highs.

Panarin – sounds like Panera Bread, hence the hockey nickname of ”Bread Man” or just ”Bread” – has embraced being a featured star after playing in the large shadow of Patrick Kane in Chicago in his first two years in the league.

”In Chicago, I played with Kane and got a lot of assists from him,” Panarin said. ”But I always wanted something more, to put more of the game on myself and be more accountable for the result. Here, I got that, what I wanted.”227

Panarin, who won the Calder Trophy as the top rookie in the NHL in 2015-16, was acquired from the Black Hawks last June along with forward Tyler Motte for forward Brandon Saad and goalie Anton Forsberg. Saad was a reliable player for Columbus for two seasons.

”Bread is a different type player because he can make a special play to win a game,” Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella said. ”I just think for you to get through and find your way and try to be a better playoff team, you have to have some players that are dynamic. You’re not coaching it, they just see something, they seize a moment and they win you a game. Or they make a huge play to get you back in the game in another way.”

With the Blue Jackets on a power play and down 3-2 in the second period on Sunday, nfl jerseys online Panarin dribbled the puck and patiently waited for a lane to open up before delivering a pinpoint circle-to-circle pass to Cam Atkinson , who scored the tying goal.

Panarin’s line mates, veteran winger Atkinson and 19-year-old rookie center Pierre-Luc Dubois, have benefited from his skills. Atkinson – who had two goals on Sunday – has come on strong after missing time with injuries, finishing the regular season with 14 goals and 14 assists in February and March. Dubois had 20 goals and 28 assists in the regular season, making him the most productive rookie in Blue Jackets history.

Panarin makes $6 million a year on a contract that runs through next season. He’ll be due a sizeable salary bump if the Blue Jackets decide to keep him around after that.

Francisco Lindor returns home with a bang as Cleveland Indians beat Twins, 6-1, in Puerto Rico

It was a sound that crowds usually don’t make. It was if nearly 20,000 voices sucked air deep into their lungs and then exhaled in a giant whoosh. customized nfl jerseys cheap It almost popped the eardrums.

When Francisco Lindor came to the plate in the fifth inning Tuesday night, he wasn’t playing around. And he wasn’t trying to punch one through the right side of the infield against Jake Odorizzi at Hiram Bithorn Stadium. There were two out and Bradley Zimmer had just hit his second straight double. Lindor was going for it all.

He took a called strike and then swung hard, finding nothing but air, on the next pitch. Lindor calmed down and took three straight balls. But on Odorizzi’s next pitch, he swung from the soles of his specially-designed cleats for the Puerto Rican Series – they bore the colors of island (red, white and blue) – and hit a curveball over the right field wall to lead the Indians to a 6-1 win over the Twins.

“Not really,” he said. “Not being in fronbt of the Puerto Rican crowd like that. Yeah, it could happen in the States, and I love the Cleveland Indians fans. They support us big time, but this is where I grew up. These are my people. It’s extremely special.”216

Then, after the fuse had been lit, the Indians started to hit and didn’t stop. Jose Ramirez and Michael Brantley started the sixth with homers. It was the first time the Indians have hit consecutive homers this season. Ramirez hit a 3-2 pitch into the right field seats and Brantley followed with a first-pitch homer in the same location.

It ended Odorizzi’s night after he opened the game with four scoreless innings.

“Our goal is to win,” said manager Terry Francona, “but it was pretty cool to see Frankie come through like that and to see how the fans responded. cheap nfl jerseys china And to see how genuinely excited he was about it.”

The Indians made it 5-0 in the seventh on three consecutive two-out singles by Jason Kipnis, Ramirez and Brantley. Kipnis scored on Brantley’s single.

Shohei Ohtani Exits Due to Blister on Throwing Hand; Expected to Make Next Start

Los Angeles Angels star Shohei Ohtani exited early from Tuesday’s game against the Boston Red Sox, leaving after just two innings.

The team announced he developed a blister on his hand during the game.custom nfl jerseys cheap

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said he expects Ohtani to make his next start, per Bob Nightengale of USA Today. Scioscia also said Ohtani will be the designated hitter Thursday against the Red Sox.

The rookie had struggled before he was pulled, allowing three runs on four hits and two walks, including a leadoff home run to Mookie Betts.

Injuries are never good, but Los Angeles would feel the impact twice if Ohtani were sidelined. Not only would the Angels miss the 23-year-old’s presence in the rotation, they would also miss his bat.215

Even after his struggles Tuesday, he has a 3.60 ERA and 0.80 WHIP plus 19 strikeouts to just four walks in 15 innings as a pitcher. He is batting .367/.424/.767 with three home runs and 11 RBI.

Mike Trout, Albert Pujols, Justin Upton and Zack Cozart have the bats to keep the offense going without Ohtani, but the unit ranks first in batting average and runs scored in part thanks to the phenom.

The rotation might feel an absence by Ohtani more, as it would have to make do without his stuff every sixth day. Angels starting pitchers rank 16th with a 4.08 ERA even with the Japanese star. And JC Ramirez and Matt Shoemaker are already on the disabled list.

Ohtani’s versatile skill set made him the offseason’s most coveted player. Now, customized nfl jerseys cheap the Angels will hope they don’t have to find ways to make up for his absence.

Holiday party: Pelicans hold off Blazers, take 2-0 series lead

Several times during the three days between the New Orleans Pelicans’ Game 1 road win over the Trail Blazers on Saturday and their Game 2 matchup on Tuesday,shop nfl jerseys online Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry was asked if he worried that his team would be complacent after stealing home-court advantage in the series. Gentry had no such concern.

Why would Gentry worry when he had Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday on his side? While the Blazers found solutions for their shooting struggles in Game 1, they couldn’t find a way to stop New Orleans’ stars in a 111-102 Pelicans victory that gave New Orleans a commanding 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series heading home for Games 3 and 4.

Although Davis was his usual double-double self (22 points, 13 rebounds) and Rajon Rondo finished an assist away from a triple-double (16 points, 10 rebounds and 9 assists) in another strong playoff performance, this night belonged to Holiday. When the Blazers were able to get their sellout crowd going, it was Holiday to whom Gentry turned to slow down the Pelicans’ usual fast pace and ensure a good shot.

“He’s so underrated as a guard that can do things on the floor,” Gentry said. “He can get to the basket against just about anybody there is, and his outside shot has really improved.”

Taking advantage of New Orleans’ strong floor spacing, Holiday got wherever he wanted off the pick-and-roll,wholesale nfl jerseys china repeatedly reaching the paint to either finish himself or find an open teammate. According to ESPN Stats & Information tracking, Holiday’s 19 drives yielded 14 points on 7-of-12 shooting by himself and seven points on 3-of-4 shooting by teammates. Holiday scored 20 of his 33 points in the restricted area, shooting 10-of-14 on those attempts, and he handed out nine assists.

 

Ravens’ Joe Flacco intends to hold throwing sessions to build trust

At the start of the Baltimore Ravens’ offseason workout program, quarterback Joe Flacco said he plans to hold extra throwing sessions with new receivers Michael Crabtree and John Brown this summer between the end of minicamp and the start of training camp.

This comes after coach John Harbaugh and general manager Ozzie Newsome both publicly nfl jersey wholesale talked about the value of additional workouts and how they help a quarterback and his receivers mesh. Ravens fans have also been clamoring for Flacco to throw to his receivers beyond the team’s practices.

“There’s no doubt, that stuff is important and that we’ll do it,” Flacco said Tuesday. “I’ve already talked about it with John and Mike about it. I think sometimes those things are just as much or more about developing a relationship with those guys and developing that trust, and for those guys to see that I really like who they are as football players and for them to see hopefully they like who I am as a football player. I think when you can get that relationship going, that’s going to help your football team out a ton.”192

Flacco has only scheduled these private workouts once in his 10-year NFL career, and that was seven years ago during the NFL lockout.

There has been an increased need for the extra throwing sessions after Baltimore revamped its supporting cast around Flacco. To improve the NFL’s 29th-ranked passing game, Baltimore parted ways with its top two wide receivers (Mike Wallace and Jeremy Maclin) as well as its leading pass-catcher (tight end Benjamin Watson). There’s only one player currently on the roster who caught more than 30 passes last season, and that’s running back Buck Allen.

Flacco’s top targets this season will likely end up being Crabtree, Brown, another veteran free agent, and highly drafted rookies at wide receiver and tight end.

Some quarterbacks have already worked with their receivers this offseason. nfl jerseys cheap authentic New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning annually meets with teammates at Duke in early April, and new Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes II has been throwing to receivers at a high school.

Micah Hyde suggests NFL fine QBs when receivers sustain helmet-to-helmet hits

Buffalo Bills safety Micah Hyde has a creative solution to curb the number of dangerous hits that receivers take over the middle of the field: Fine the quarterback.

“Those bang-bang plays, it’s tough,” Hyde said Tuesday. “Start fining the quarterbacks. nfl authentic jerseys They’re the ones who are throwing the ball right there. It’s tough for us [defensive players] to be able to adjust last second to get our head to one side, the other side — up, down. We’re trying to make a play like the receiver is. It’s the sport of football.”

Hyde’s suggestion came as part of a discussion about a change to the NFL rulebook enacted at the league meetings last month in which a player — on offense or defense — will be penalized 15 yards and potentially ejected any time he lowers his head to initiate and make contact with his helmet against an opponent.191

“Hopefully they go back and realize it’s not going to be a functional rule that’s going to make sense,” he said Tuesday. “It’s going to be hard on the refs, because they already have enough rules to call. Now, do they call it every single play, which they can do?

“It’s definitely going to be hard [as players], because our heads are at the top of our body. You play with forward lean. Even if I’m coming in with a shoulder, if [the offensive player] drops his head a little bit, it’s slight helmet-to-helmet. It can be called every single play. I just don’t think it was well-thought-out. The intention of the rule is great, but we have to understand at some point, this is a collision, contact sport. And I think that’s some of the allure to it. Everybody is not built to play this game. You can’t legislate out every injury. Then we wouldn’t be playing football. At that point, it changes to something different. If the fans and the owners are OK with that, then we’ll have to live in that new world.”

Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams, who has played in the NFL since 2006, agreed with Alexander’s opinion of the rule change.

“I understand the old rule of targeting and launching, but this seems to incorporate all contact, nfl jersey wholesale including incidental contact, which I think is a huge problem for players,” he told ESPN. “There is a risk that comes with playing the game, generally speaking. You can legislate out the flagrant attempts to use the helmet as a weapon, but the reason we wear helmets is because of incidental contact and just the nature of the game.”

Plateau United dumped out of CAF Confederation Cup

Reigning NPFL champions Plateau United have been eliminated from the CAF Confederation Cup after being thumped 4-0 in Algeria by USM Alger on Tuesday evening.

Having won the first leg 2-1 in Nigeria, nfl authentic jerseys United were in pole position for the return clash at the Stade du 5-Juillet-1962 this week.

However, having capitulated away in Tunisia, at Etoile du Sahel, in the First Round of the Champions League when they conceded three goals in eight minutes, they were again exposed defensively in North Africa as the hosts scored three in quarter of an hour.

Oussama Darfalou opened the scoring just before the half-hour mark to level the tie on aggregate, before Kaddour Beldjilali fired home two minutes from the pause to give USMA the advantage.180

The impressive Darfalou then added his second in the 48th minute to leave Plateau with a mountain to climb, and Mohamed Benkhemassa secured a 5-2 aggregate win in the 81st minute.

Despite United’s elimination, the Nigerian top flight still has three representatives still standing in the Confed Cup, with MFM FC, Enyimba and Akwa United all in action on Wednesday.

Also in Algiers, Ivorians ASEC Mimosas held Algeria’s CR Belouizdad 0-0 to secure their progression following a 1-0 victory in Abidjan in the first leg.

Komlan Agbegniadan was the hero when the two sides met at the Stade Felix Houphouet-Boigny earlier in the month, and his strike – coupled with a resolute defensive display in North Africa – ensures ASEC can keep dreaming of adding another continental title to their crowded trophy room.

It wasn’t a vintage display by the Green Eagles, who had been held away in the first leg, nfl jerseys cheap authentic but the 2-1 aggregate triumph gives them time to improve and, having flexed their offensive muscles against Green Buffaloes earlier in the competition, will fancy their chances of causing a group-stage upset.
