Farewell, 2016-17 Russell Westbrook

The immaculate season of Russell Westbrook is over.

The Houston Rockets, who are excellent, dispatched Westbrook’s Oklahoma City Thunder 4-1 to move on in the West. Westbrook left this season the way he lived it: scoring like a maniac New York Jets Cheap Jerseys and watching his bench give up a lead. (In Game 5, the Thunder were +12 in Westbrook’s 42 minutes and -18 in the six minutes he sat. OKC lost by six. This was a common thread throughout the series.)

Toronto, down two games to none, is already on the ropes. We can all see that. However, the Raptors can remember that this happened again last year, too, only to bounce back once the series returned to Canada and tie it up at two. That series, even then, never felt all that close. But two wins would make things more competitive, no doubt, to say the least. It’s a good place to start.

To have a chance at it, the Raptors need DeRozan to be so much better, starting immediately. DeRozan had a 33- and 32-point game in the final three of the Bucks series, which proved instrumental, and he wasn’t terrible in Game 1 against Cleveland, even as they swept to a win. On Friday, DeRozan needs to look like an overmatched wing and look like the All-Star starter he was this year.

It’s Toronto’s only small chance at making this series competitive, anyhow. “Hockey men” think that hockey can’t work in the desert. “Hockey men” think that European players are soft. “Hockey men” think that dropping the gloves is a far better way to prove a point to an opponent on the ice than scoring a goal. “Hockey men” think nothing of saying they’d love to punch their own employees because their analysis of a game contradicts everything they think they know.

NHL playoff scores 2017: Ottawa owes their barnburner win to one Jean-Gabriel Pageau

The Senators and Rangers played in one of the wackiest Stanley Cup playoff games on Saturday. A 6-5 double-overtime tilt ended after New York squandered a pair of leads and Pageau capped off his historic evening with his fourth goal.

Yes, four goals. A hat trick plus some. In a Stanley Cup playoff game. Only 11 players in NHL history have hit that mark in the postseason, with Johan Franzen being the last to do so in 2010.

Those types of games are series-changing statement games. Instead of heading into New York tied 1-1, the Senators have a two-game lead with the potential to do some real damage to the Rangers at home. After being given the short shrift by many for being a boring team, the Senators countered with quite the offensive comeback.

And, while of course it’s nice to write about Henrik Lundqvist and Craig Anderson standing on their head, high-scoring hockey games in the postseason are a nice change of pace. Especially heart-stopping, overtime ones decided by a player’s fourth goal of the game.

The Isles have a lot of upcoming forwards with scoring Texas Rangers Cheap Jerseys skills (Josh Ho-Sang, Anthony Beauvillier, Mathew Barzal, Michael Dal Colle, and Kieffer Bellows), but none of them play the power-forward game like Rasmussen. The 6’6, 215-pound center could become a net-front presence on the power play for the Islanders’ skilled forwards to finish plays with.

Outside of Tippett, nobody in the draft owns a shot like Tolvanen. The 18-year-old’s NHL-ready shot netted 30 goals in 52 games in the USHL last year, and he’ll join Boston College as a freshman in 2017-18. Rounding out the other aspects of his game may take time, but you can’t teach innate scoring prowess.

Joe Johnson saved the Jazz again against the Clippers

The Jazz started this game down 2-1 in the series to the Clippers and were in a must-win situation before heading back to Los Angeles for Game 5. There was good news for Cheap Dolphins Jerseys the Jazz as Rudy Gobert would be making his return, but before the game, it was also announced that Gordon Hayward was suffering from food poisoning. Hayward tried to play but ultimately left after nine minutes, unable to return.

The one obvious “card” they can play is Jusuf Nurkic, who may finally be available after an injury kept him out of the opening two matchups. Nurkic gives Portland a real center, which will help the makeshift lineups involving Al-Farouq Aminu and Noah Vonleh they’ve been throwing out there.

Still, the Warriors haven’t really got a breakout game from Stephen Curry or Klay Thompson yet, with Curry leading the team in scoring in Game 2 with just 19 points. One of those two going off soon seems inevitable. Draymond Green, meanwhile, had one of the most incredible games you’ll see in the series opener, recording this line: 19 points, 12 rebounds, nine assists, five blocks, three steals on 6-of-10 shooting.

Giles is another player who should be on the radar for any team Cheap Donegal Gaa Jerseys with multiple first rounders. He was a legend on the AAU circuit who was considered the best player in high school basketball from a young age before repeated knee injuries slowed his rise. He didn’t look like future superstar at Duke as a freshman, but there’s still time if he can get healthy. He’s worth a flyer for a Nets team desperate for star power.

Eagles make smart 1st-round pick with pass-rushing machine Derek Barnett

One of the best ways to dial up a massive contract in the NFL is to build a reputation for harassing quarterbacks. After selecting Tennessee pass rusher Derek Barnett with the No. 14 pick of the NFL draft, the Eagles are hoping the former Volunteer can provide big-money production at a fraction of the cost.

Barnett terrorized the SEC in his three seasons in the conference, racking up 52 tackles for loss, one off Leonard Little’s school mark, and 33 sacks, eclipsing the great Reggie White’s Volunteer record by one. His combination of speed and power along the edge made him the bane of every offensive tackle he matched up against.

His ability to shed blocks and collapse pockets won’t just boost his own numbers — it also creates easy TFLs for his teammates. Even without Barnett’s team-high 19, Tennessee still racked up 81 tackles for loss in 2016.

Dobbs said he loves his major, but he also loves football. He’s been playing the game since he was five and can’t imagine not playing it. After Dobbs graduates in May, he’ll be an actual rocket scientist. But when his football career ends, he plans on using his degree to build and design airplanes.

“Growing up, I was always fascinated with aviation, and I always succeeded in math and sciences, so aerospace engineering was right up my alley.”

In fact, over the past two offseasons, the 22-year-old completed two internships with Pratt & Whitney, a leading aerospace manufacturer.

“When I step on the field, put on my helmet, strap on my shoulder pads, each and every time I walk on the field, I understand the risks that come with playing football,” Dobbs said.

The young signal caller has all the tools to be a great Cheap Jerseys With Free Shipping quarterback in Cheap Jerseys Sunglasses the NFL. Indeed, it’s going to be hard for opposing defenses to outsmart and catch him.

Mike Williams overcame a broken freakin’ neck to become a Charger

In Mike Williams’ final game as a college athlete, he torched an Alabama defense loaded with top-tier talent for 94 receiving yards and a touchdown while leading his team to its first national Really Cheap Jerseys title in 35 years. Now, the Los Angeles Chargers are hoping he can bring that magic with him to the NFL.

Los Angeles selected the Clemson wideout with the No. 7 overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft. After a storied junior season and a pair of huge performances in the College Football Playoff, expectations are sky high. For Williams, getting this far is a testament to his resilience.

But we’re still waiting on the brand synergy opportunity that is Charlton combined with Taco Bell, where he says he still eats, enjoying the Gordita Crunch.

Hopefully, after he walks across the stage in Philadelphia, our dreams will come true and Charlton will get a personally branded taco at the popular chain.

Maye is solid in coverage, playing centerfield as a help defender through NFL Jerseys Cheap most of his time with the Gators. He reacts well to passes in front of him, accelerating downhill to make big plays. He can add value in both zone and man coverage and has a solid track record of achievement against some of the FBS’s best teams.

He’s also not a character risk like some of the other defensive backs in the 2017 draft. Maye stayed out of trouble during his Florida career and skipped this year’s draft ceremony in order to attend his graduation in Gainesville.

Yes, that includes a bunch of dudes whose names youve probably never heard.

When it came to Garrett and Barnett, Robinson didn’t always look pretty doing it, but most of the time, he got the job done. And that is impressive when you consider how different Garrett and Barnett are as pass rushers. Robinson was consistently able to handle Garrett’s power rushes as well as Barnett’s speed rushes.

That ain’t easy. Bowser’s senior season only consisted of eight starts in as many games thanks to a fight with a teammate that left the linebacker with a broken orbital bone. Despite missing a month of action, he still amassed 12 tackles for loss and 8.5 sacks and claimed second-team all-conference honors — all building off his 2015 season in which he started every game and made 50 total tackles (6.5 for loss) and 5.5 sacks.

The multisport athlete has had success both as an edge rusher and outside linebacker. A move to the middle isn’t likely, but his contribution to stopping the run game should be felt almost immediately. Bowser was largely overlooked heading into the combine before putting up head-turning numbers for a guy who is 6’3, 247 pounds.

Hell, I didn’t see any other left tackle handle either guy the way Robinson did both. And there isn’t a thing that I want my left tackle to be able to do that I didn’t Cheap Baseball Jerseys China see Robinson do on a high level. He can drive people off the ball, he’s good blocking people out in space, he makes pass blocking look way too easy, and he plays with a little edge to him. Booing commissioners is kinda what we do as sports fans in America.

Hockey fans let Gary Bettman absolutely get it every year at the NHL draft.

Even Adam Silver, who is essentially the “cool commissioner” in Cheap Golden State Warriors Jerseys American sports, gets some boos. He used to do the second round of the draft before he got the big job, and they were booing him then, too.

Law enjoyed a career in which he was a three-time Super Bowl champion with the New England Patriots.

Strange things happen when Lance Stephenson is in a Pacers uniform. The Cavaliers aren’t good right now, and turning it on doesn’t mean going from objectively bad to amazing in a moment’s notice. Cleveland will be better than they have been, but is that enough? It’s enough to beat the weirdo Pacers, but not easily. Cavaliers in seven. A series win with baaaaad omens.

It’s not the best class for interior defensive linemen, so Washington would be lucky to have the chance to take McDowell to upgrade a defense that was below average in almost every major statistical category.

Wistert’s place as a Michigan legend is secure along with his brothers Whitey and Alvin, and the tackle was a six-time All-Pro selection and a key player for the Eagles’ NFL championship teams in 1949 and 1950. Wistert passed away in 2016. Philadelphia retired Wistert’s jersey.

Law enjoyed a career in which he was a three-time Super Bowl champion with the New England Patriots. He finished with 53 career interceptions and seven TDs, with his signature coming on a pick six against Kurt Warner in Super Bowl XXXVI. Law’s numbers appear good enough to get him in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

There are a couple of recent prominent examples of college programs hiring high school coaches for on-field roles that come to mind. While he didn’t end up being hired in the end, Michigan wouldn’t have been able to entertain Michael Johnson Sr. in the way it did just a few months ago if the Lakers Cheap Jerseys rule was already in place.

Former Miami coach Al Golden also hired Ice Harris, a South Florida Make Cheap Jerseys Online legend who had led Booker T. Washington high school to three state championships.

VP of officiating Dean Blandino leaving NFL to join CBS, per report

Dean Blandino will be leaving the NFL in order to take a job on television, according to reports.

Ogunbowale finished his Badgers career with 319 carries for 1,518 yards (4.8-yard average) and 13 touchdowns, plus 60 receptions for 507 yards and two scores. He displayed explosiveness out of the backfield late in his senior year; he averaged 12.8 yards per catch vs. Iowa and 20.7 yards against Purdue.

His work during the week leading up to the East-West Shrine Game also turned heads.

Ogunbowale projects well as a third-down back initially who can grow into a larger role in the NFL. He showed with the Badgers he can be a good blocker, and if he adds size to his 5-11, 205-pound frame, his role in the league could also expand.

The Cardinals probably will go quarterback in the second round and could go cornerback here, but Howard is just too good to pass up here. He has a skill set like Carolina’s Greg Olsen and adding him would give the Cardinals a potential Pro Bowler and immediate upgrade.

The Packers would consider a corner like Alabama’s Marlon Humphrey, Ohio Kids Football Jerseys Cheap State’s Gareon Conley or LSU’s Tre-Davious White here, but Peppers is a superb athlete Cheap Full Dye Softball Jerseys who would give the Packers a Swiss Army knife. Peppers could be used as a safety, a nickel linebacker, over a slot receiver and as a return specialist. He also would help the Packers overcome the loss of Micah Hyde and might even be an upgrade over Hyde.

Before the biggest game of the season, the Chiefs star receiver got in trouble with the law.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe was arrested on Sunday night for possession of marijuana after being pulled over for speeding, according to Arrowhead Pride.

Watch Online: Sunday Night Football is available for live streaming from NBC Sports Extra. Verizon subscribers can watch games live with the NFL Mobile app (subscription required). NFL Game Pass offers live online broadcasts to users outside the USA.

More on the matchup: Although there have been ups and downs for both teams this season, the Saints and Cowboys have positioned themselves well for a strong second-half run and a return to the playoffs. Both teams sit atop their divisions, with the Saints also in contention for the No. 1 seed in the NFC.

Dallas and New Orleans are improved defensively from last season, but the offense is the headline act for both teams. Dallas will enter the game fourth in the NFL in scoring, while New Orleans isn’t far behind at No. 7. Drew Brees and Tony Romo will get a lot of the attention on Sunday night, with a good chance of a shootout if the defenses can’t keep up. Either way, the game won’t lack star power, and the winner could have a leg up on potential playoff seeding with head-to-head results being one of the top tiebreakers.

Now, the question is suddenly whether or not Marc Trestman and the Bears can win with Cutler at all. Chicago is 4-4 with Jay Cutler as the starter, and 1-0 with McCown (though, to be fair, that win came against the Packers as they lost Rodgers to a collarbone injury).

Cutler returned last week against the Lions, and the Bears lost, 21-19. Rounding out the AFC South injuries was a broken thumb for Colts offensive lineman Mike McGlynn. While Cheap Nike Jerseys he is expected to get a cast and be listed as day-to-day, a short week for Indianapolis before their Thursday Cheap NFL Jerseys Usa night matchup against the Titans could force the Colts to rely on Joe Reitz or Khaled Holmes to fill in for McGlynn.

Cheap Chelsea Jerseys

A key moment happened before the vital touchdown that sealed the victory for Carolina. After the snap Smith gets away with a shove to the face on Jenkins when both players were out of the play. This should have been a personal foul for unnecessary roughness, but referees missed the call.

The Panthers’ receiver has characterized the game as him being disrespected by a young receiver, but it’s clear that blame went both ways. The veteran stretched every rule in an effort to prompt retaliation, something that got inside Jenkins’ head on the following play.

Jenkins is lost on the first move again, this time another inside cut that forces him out of position. The key problem is rounded coverage, where the defensive back loses Smith’s position as he’s concentrating too much on Cam Newton. This allowed a 2-yard buffer for Smith who has open space at the 6 yard line.

Hey, two wins … how exciting. This week’s win just so happened to come against a Bears team that had been held in pretty high regard. The only highlight for the defense was getting some pressure on Cutler. More importantly, the world finally saw an RGIII much closer to the 2012 version of RGIII. His throws were sharp and decisive, and he added 84 yards with his legs, his best rushing total Cheap Jerseys Youth of the season.

Andy Reid and Alex Smith: a combined 22 years in Philadelphia/San Francisco, and for most of those years they were somewhere between loathed and under-appreciated before their ousters. Fittingly, they were united in Kansas City, where the long-suffering fans merely wanted replacement-level stand-ins for the black hole of leadership and quarterbacking provided by Romeo Crennel, Matt Cassell, and Brady Quinn. And Reid and Smith are MUCH better than replacement-level! They’re downright kinda good! And, when Cheap Jerseys Zoom paired with a defense made of muscle and sharks teeth, they can actually mow their way through a soft schedule to the best record in the league.
