Wizards hold off LeBron, new-look Cavaliers 110-103

Elite Youth Jake Matthews Jersey Oubre tried to give the Wizards an extra advantage when he reached over during a dead-ball situation and tried to untie one of Hood’s shoes.

I was just joking, explained Oubre, whose tactic was exposed by the Cavs with a replay on their giant scoreboard. I was down on my knees and his teammates were like, `Tie your shoes.’ He laughed about it. He was trying to snitch on me to the ref. That’s my guy, though.

Cavaliers: Smith’s recent fast starts have been a key to Cleveland’s success. Smith is shooting 18 of 21 — 14 of 15 from the 3-point range — in the first quarter of the past six games. When he’s making shots, said coach Tyronn Lue, we’re a Bart Starr Jersey different team. … James became the seventh player with 11,000 career field goals. … The trades brought an infusion of youth to what was the league’s oldest roster. It’s not an old team anymore, Lue said. We’ve definitely gotten younger. … Signed G Marcus Thornton to a 10-day contract.

Just some of the little details when you play with a three-goal lead, a four-goal lead in the third period, I thought we took our foot off the gas a little bit, Wheeler said. I thought we could have done a little more in the third.

But in the end, it’s another road win for Winnipeg and two additional points.

We’re going to have to play some big games on the road down the stretch, so we’re trying to work on that area of our game, Wheeler said.

Denver coach Michael Malone thinks Nikola Jokic should in the MVP conversation. The young center is proving worthy of the praise.

Jokic had 28 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists before fouling out, Wilson Chandler had 18 points and a season-high 16 rebounds, and the Nuggets beat the San Antonio Spurs 122-119 on Friday night.

Mike Pereira says ‘Philly Special’ should not have counted

Philly Special was an ingenious play call, but former NFL director of officiating Mike Pereira believes Nick Foles’ touchdown catch on the play in Super Bowl 52 should have been called back for an illegal formation.

Game Ron Brooks Jersey The down judge . . . felt that it was his judgment, and he (receiver Alshon Jeffery) was close enough, Pereira, now an analyst for Fox Sports, told the Talk Fame Sports Network. Well, he wasn’t. They lined up wrong.
Mack Hollins Game Jersey
The rule got in trouble because they differentiated between a receiver who is upright and on his feet and a receiver who is going to the ground. Two different rules. And I think that is the mistake, Pereira added,

Pereira went on to outline his proposed catch rule, one where officials stay clear of overly judicious analysis by replay.

To me, you treat them the same way. It’s control, two feet and time, Pereira said. Time is described in the (rule) book as turning upfield, taking extra steps, tucking the ball in 锟斤拷 and where the rule really started to have problems is when replay started to make decisions as to what is the element of time.

Replay can decide control. Replay can decide two feet like the Clement play. But element of time is subjective.

Pereira was referring to the TD catch by Eagles running back Corey Clement in the Super Bowl. There was debate over whether Clement caught the ball inbounds.

Earlier, we heard that there would be 25 bars along the parade route serving Bud Light, which would give you a decent selection of places. But all the Anheuser-Busch rep would confirm on Monday afternoon is that there will be free Bud Light at multiple bars.

There are no details on how they’re going to enforce the one-beer limit. So maybe if you’re in Philadelphia shoot your shot on another at the bar you go to, or just go to the next one that has free beer.

It seems very uncool that Bud Light is pulling the hesitation move on the Eagles just to sponsor their parade, but some free beers are better that none.

Perhaps this is the last stand for Dilly Dilly.

You can’t beat the Patriots by going completely conservative with Jamison Crowder Authentic Jersey a lead. Just ask the Jacksonville Jaguars, who lost the AFC Championship to New England by doing exactly that. Doug Pederson apparently gets it.

Winter Olympics 2018: Primetime TV schedule and live stream info for Friday, Feb. 16

Thursday night was not one of the United States’ finest Winter Olympics hours. Nathan Chen, America’s best hope for a men’s figure skating gold, stumbled to 17th place in the short program. Mikaela Shiffrin, battling a compacted Alpine skiing schedule caused by high winds earlier in the week, failed to medal in the women’s slalom, her best event. And decorated X Games veteran Lindsey Jacobellis did not medal in the snowboard cross.
Women's Game Richard Sherman Navy Blue Jersey: Home #25 NFL Seattle Seahawks Nike
Limited Youth Brandon Carr Jersey American Adam Rippon, fast becoming a fan favorite, had the USA’s best showing, but even that was just seventh place, more than 16 points back of a medal position. America’s youngest men’s competitor, Vincent Zhou, did make a bit of a name for himself by landing the competition’s first quad early in the night. Still, entering the free skate in 12th makes him unlikely to medal as well.

Women’s super-G won’t boast the star power it would normally have either. Shiffrin announced she withdrew from the competition due to the expedited schedule. Heading into Pyeongchang, the 22-year-old had hoped to compete for five gold medals. However, 33-year-old Lindsey Vonn, trying to prove she’s still got it after one of the best Alpine skiing careers in history, will be there looking for redemption after missing the 2014 games in Sochi due to an injury.

It all started with Kevin Hart walking on the stage and demanding an all-star jersey from some dude named Coach.

Conventional wisdom suggests restrictor-plate races are proverbial crapshoots where with good fortune, just about anyone can win if circumstances break their way. The list of unlikely winners certainly supports this thinking with a bevy of drivers whose lone NASCAR Cup Series victories occurred at either at Daytona International Speedway, site of Sunday’s Daytona 500 (3 p.m. ET, FOX), or Talladega Superspeedway.

Limited Youth Jonathan Cooper Jersey Perception doesn’t align Womens William Hayes Jersey with reality, however. While there has been a surprise winner or two over the last five seasons — David Ragan (2013, Talladega) and Aric Almirola (2014, Daytona) more than qualify — a look at drivers who’ve won the previous 20 plate races shows a lot of the same names. Dale Earnhardt Jr., Denny Hamlin, Jimmie Johnson, Joey Logano, Brad Keselowski, and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. have won 16 of those 20 races, an 80 percent winning clip.

Siciliano had been eagerly anticipating Week 13, because it was the first full slate of Sunday games after the bye weeks and Thanksgiving Thursday.

“If we can get three or four games being decided within the same minute and have it all live on one screen, those are the moments where you high five,” he said.

That would happen a week later, with dueling overtimes, the Buffalo blizzard, Carson Wentz’s injury and Jaguars-Seahawks scuffles. The games on this day didn’t exactly cooperate, with enough blowouts to deny concurrent fantastic finishes. When it was all over, though, Siciliano still considered it a successful day because a lot of odd things happened.

“It’s unfair punishing him over the Crohn’s,” says Fettner, his agent. “[The NFL] should drop the testing for marijuana. They don’t test for nicotine. They don’t test for alcohol” — which some players abuse in lieu of weed.

But booze isn’t a viable answer for pain relief; it brings on hangovers, liver damage and weight gain.

“Alcohol is a central-nervous-system depressant, so it makes players sluggish and leads to poor performance on the field,” says Sisley. When consumed in excess, regular boozing can lead to “alcohol impairment, brain atrophy and domestic violence. Marijuana does not cause any of those things.”

The trick with marijuana, though, is getting around the league’s annual urinalysis (administered up to 10 times per month for players, like Henderson, who’ve failed a first time). The process became increasingly invasive after 2005, when Minnesota Vikings running back Onterrio Smith got caught by airport security possessing a Whizzinator — a kit that includes a hollow prosthetic penis — and vials of white powder that he said was dried urine.

They have to travel to New England and Jacksonville in their next two games, which puts their three-game winning streak in serious jeopardy. Their dearth of a home-field advantage, playing in a soccer stadium routinely overtaken by opposing fans, will catch up to them.

Joe Flacco and John Harbaugh have turned around seasons before. Their secondary still has as much talent as any in football, and they’re second in the NFL in turnovers forced.

Flacco isn’t the quarterback he once was, and he’s voicing frustration with Marty Mornhinweg’s play-calling. He’s averaging a putrid 5.3 yards per attempt and 170 yards per game. The Ravens’ offense is shield-your-eyes bad. Injuries have crushed them.

As for the Steelers, Mikus said they made the least bad decision from among only bad options: “If they kneel, Trump blasts them. If they stand, he takes credit. Trump deserves neither an opportunity to continue his inflammatory attacks, nor should he earn any credit.”

Getting a Steelers fan to throw away a lifetime of devotion isn’t easy; for as long as people can remember, they were the glue that held together a city when nothing else was left to hold it together.

Bradford is the other Vikings quarterback whose future beyond this season is up in the air.

Pryor, who had a breakout 1,000-yard season with the Browns last year, is betting on himself with a one-year, $6 million deal. Both he and Kirk Cousins are playing on prove-it deals, so that could be a prolific combo for the Redskins.

He led the league in completion rate (71.6 percent) last year and was a big part of Minnesota’s hot start. How the Vikings finish next season, and Bridgewater’s health, should determine whether Bradford finally has found a home.

Brees will be 39 when the 2018 season starts, but he’s shown no sign of slowing, leading the league in passing yards for three straight years and topping 5,000 for the fourth time in his career last year.

The x-factor here is Miss America, which doesn’t sound like it makes sense, but trust me, it does. While watching the Miss America pageant on Sunday, as I do every September, I heard Miss America mention the fact that she went to high school with Carson Wentz.

Apparently, everyone in North Dakota knows everyone else because that’s the only way to explain this. Now, not only did Miss North Dakota take home the crown, but apparently, she only won because she was inspired by Wentz.

The first woman was Gayle Sierens, who called an NFL game for NBC Sports on Dec. 27, 1987. She was offered six more games for the following season, but her local NBC station didn’t want her to miss work, so she Homer Bailey Womens Jersey never called another game.

Leadership starts at the top, and this is an example of poor leadership, Schnatter said, words that owners wonder if Jones had a hand in. NFL leadership has hurt Papa John’s shareholders.

The league is awaiting Jones’ next move. The longtime face of the Cowboys could sue the league if Goodell’s extension is completed without review or approval from the NFL’s 32 teams. Jones has since enlisted embattled attorney David Boies, who reportedly helped embattled film producer Harvey Weinstein use private investigators to try to collect damning information about, among others, reporters before the New York Times’ bombshell Weinstein report, published in October.

McAdoo will try to use his experience as a selling point, as he was Giants offensive coordinator and then head coach before 2017 descended into a disaster and he was fired with the Giants 2-10. If this interview works out, he would be joining a perpetual laughingstock that went 0-16 last year under Hue Jackson. The Browns did not have an offensive coordinator last season, with Jackson handling that duty.

McAdoo has competition, however. Mark Gastineau Jersey According to the report, fired Titans coach Mike Mularkey is on Cleveland’s radar, and Texans QB coach Sean Ryan, among others, already has interviewed for the job. Whoever takes over will need to mentor either DeShone Kizer or the quarterback whom the Browns grab with the No. 1 pick.

McAdoo previously was a target for the since-filled Broncos quarterback-coach position, but he has wanted a coordinator position.

It was perhaps with that in mind that Beckham issued a challenge to Texans defensive end J.J. Watt when the two ran into each other on the red carpet.

Elite Womens Nick Vannett Jersey Watt, who missed all but five games because of an injury this season, and Beckham bumped fists, and Beckham proposed: Comeback Player of the Year?

Elite Womens Denny McLain Jersey Lanier said the league of course has adjusted its security plans based on recent events in London.

So I mean, look, I would say he took over a 2-14 team, a team that wasn’t very good that had a lot of problems. He’s had three straight winning seasons, won the division twice, won a playoff game last year. I think he’s done a pretty good job in that organization with what he’s had to work with and I think he’s one of the best coaches in the league. So that’s my opinion.

I’m sure some of the general managers and perhaps owners are thinking that way, Gruden said. But if you’re a coach, you have to look at who’s available now. There’s no guarantee you’re gonna be able to get one of those names you’re talking about next year. There’s no guarantee some of those names will be as good as you think they are. And there’s no guarantee that they’re coming out, either.

NFL’s latest salvo in constantly-escalating Jerry Jones war

Elite Youth Matt Ryan Jersey
The Associated Press has obtained a letter sent by the NFL to Jerry Jones’ attorney accusing the Cowboys owner of conduct detrimental to the league’s best interests over his objection to a contract extension for Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Jones has acknowledged being at odds with the compensation committee chairman, Atlanta owner Arthur Blank, over the Goodell talks. They didn’t speak on the field before the Falcons’ 27-7 victory over the Cowboys on Sunday.

Kenneth Acker Authentic Jersey Blank issued a statement Monday saying the committee planned to proceed with finalizing the Goodell deal and would keep other owners updated.

Jones claimed Tuesday on his radio show that well over half the owners agree with him in wanting a final vote after the committee is finished negotiating the deal.

With due respect, we urge Mr. Jones to drop his misguided litigation threats and media campaign to undermine the committee’s mandate, the letter said. And we urge Mr. Jones to support the committee’s deliberations, not attempt to sabotage them.

Reid made noise Wednesday when he and Dolphins safety Michael Thomas withdrew from the Players Coalition because they felt Jenkins and Boldin had usurped the group’s motives. Push came to shove for Reid, he revealed Thursday, when Jenkins asked him if he would stop protesting once the two sides agreed to the multi-million dollar plan.

At that point, that Luis Tiant Authentic Jersey was the last straw for me, Reid said. He had a conversation with the NFL, we agreed that multiple people would be in all conversations with the NFL, it wouldn’t just be him solely, so he didn’t stand by his word on that. At no point did we ever communicate that an agreement with the NFL would end the protests, so for him to come to that point with the league, it was the last straw for me.

The discussion at his locker drifted to the wild closing sequence in the Patriots-Steelers game, when Ben Roethlisberger, trailing 27-24, appeared to produce the winning points.

That could change, however, with Ezekiel Elliott’s legal status still in limbo.

Each week, national NFL writer Mark Maske will provide his ranking of the league’s 32 teams. This week, Philadelphia and New England flip spots in the rankings, as the Eagles move up and the Patriots drop after two weeks on top. Dallas was the week’s big mover, jumping from No. 11 to sixth after a strong showing against Kansas City.

The Browns blocked one would-be game-tying field goal attempt in the fourth quarter and Chargers kicker Josh Lambo pushed another wide right as time expired, giving the previously 0-14 Browns their first victory of the season, 20-17. The win prevents Cleveland — a city that has enjoyed the recent successes of MLB’s Indians and NBA’s Cavaliers — from joining the Detroit Lions in NFL infamy as the only teams to go winless over a 16-game scheduled. Still, this doesn’t mean the Browns are, you know, good.

The win did come at a cost, the win now puts the San Francisco Niners in position to receive the No. 1 pick in the 2017 NFL draft should both teams finish with just one victory this season.

This isn’t a new idea. My colleague, Pete Prisco, has been talking about this for a while now. During Bortles’ hot streak to begin December — when he completed 71.4 percent of his passes for 903 yards, seven touchdowns, no picks, and a 128.6 passer rating over a three-game stretch — Prisco noticed the Jaguars were letting him throw on early downs.

That’s not what happened against the Bills. Of their 11 offensive drives (not including their final kneel-down series), the Jaguars began with a running play seven times and a passing play four times. Of the four times they started with a passing play, twice they eventually scored — one touchdown and one field goal. Remember, they only scored 10 points all game long.

“Did we do the wrong thing with the Chargers? It’s probably way too early to say that,” a high-ranking executive with one NFL team said. “Let’s see how it plays out. Let’s see how they both do when they get into the new stadium. But I guess it does make you start to think a little bit.”chargers_086

If you’re an NFL fan, there’s a good chance that your favorite team is already done for the year.

Prescott played poorly, and The Post’s Adam Kilgore noted that the second-year quarterback finally learned how hard it can be to play in the NFL. However, he had one of the most difficult assignments the league has to offer, traveling to Denver to take on the Broncos’ elite pass defense, and Prescott got no help from the running game, as Ezekiel Elliott managed a minuscule eight yards on nine carries.

No NFL tight end has ever visited the end zone as often as Antonio Gates. With his 112th touchdown Sunday, the Chargers veteran moved ahead of a tie with Tony Gonzalez and now sits alone atop the all-time list for his position.

Gates set the record midway through the third quarter of a home game against the Dolphins, when he hauled in a pass from 鈥?who else? 鈥?quarterback Philip Rivers. That marked the 85th time that Gates and Rivers have connected for a score, the third-most for any NFL quarterback-receiver duo.

Last week, there was a chance that Mike Mularkey was going to get fired if the Titans lost in the wild-card round, but that didn’t happen because they pulled off a 22-21 upset over the Chiefs. The good news for Mularkey is that if Tennessee ends up in the Super Bowl, the Titans might be forced to sign him to a contract for life. I’m not sure how much a contract for life would pay, but it would probably be at least Gruden money.

The crazy thing about this game is that if Carson Wentz was going to be on the field, Eagles-Patriots would definitely rank in the top-five for best possible Super Bowls. However, Wentz won’t be on the field, which means Bill Belichick Womens Willie Roaf Jersey would have two weeks to gameplan for an offense being run by Nick Foles when I’m pretty sure he would only need two hours.
