WINNIPEG - Winnipeg Goldeyes manager Rick Forney announced on Friday that
infielder Matt Cusick has been released. Greg Lloyd Jersey . Cusick, 26, hit .273 with
a home run and 10 RBI in 11 games with the Goldeyes this season. Winnipeg is
down to 21 players on its active roster, including 11 pitchers and 10 position
players. James Harrison Womens Jersey . For a change,
April suited CC Sabathia. The notoriously slow starter shook off early trouble
to get his first win of the season and backup catcher Chris Stewart had a
career-high three RBIs that included a go-ahead, two-run single in New Yorks 8-3
win over the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday night. Ben Roethlisberger Jersey . The game will
also be the first this season played with the NFLs regular officiating crews
after the league and the officials union finally reached a tentative eight-year
agreement to end a lockout that began in June. http://www.pittsburghsteelersfansprostore.com/emmanuel-sanders-jersey
. And it was fitting that one of footballs most theatrical characters went out
with one final, dramatic flourish. With the last kick in his last game, the
34-year-old Drogba won the Champions League for Chelsea on Saturday, scoring the
decisive penalty in the shootout against Bayern Munich. Mel Blount Jersey . The two teams meet
tonight at 9:30pm et/6:30pm pt on TSN and TSN Mobile TV. You can also join in
our live Game Night blog and chat with your fellow hockey fans. Isaac Redman Jersey . The 50-year-old Walter
joins head coach Alain Vigneault and associate coach Rick Bowness behind the
Vancouver bench for the upcoming season. PHILADELPHIA —His coach called
Jrue Holidays slump “0 for the world.” Even as the misses piled up, Holiday
never felt the weight of it on his 21-year-old shoulders. All he could do in a
thorny Game 4 was laugh about his struggles with teammate Evan Turner. “Youve
got to be happy when you play,” Holiday said. “It really helps.” Boy, did it
help Philadelphia in the final minutes against Chicago. Holiday busted out of a
game-long slump with consecutive 3-pointers that stretched a one-point lead into
seven and helped the 76ers beat the Chicago Bulls 89-82 on Sunday and take a 3-1
lead in their Eastern Conference playoff series. “Dont fear the consequences,”
76ers coach Doug Collins said. Its the top-seeded Bulls who suddenly fear
elimination. Spencer Hawes scored 22 points and Holiday had 20 to put the Sixers
one win away from joining the short list of eighth-seeded teams that have won a
series against a No. 1 seed. Andre Iguodala had 14 points and 12 rebounds for
the Sixers, who have won the last three games after losing Game 1. Game 5 is
Tuesday in Chicago. The short-handed Bulls played without Derrick Rose (torn
ACL) and Joakim Noah (sprained ankle). Rose is out for the season and Noah is
day to day for the rest of the series. In NBA post-season history, the eighth
seed has won a first-round series against the No. 1 seed four times, including
last season when Memphis eliminated San Antonio. Golden State (2007), New York
(1999) and Denver (1994) also pulled off the rare feat. “Im not worried about
it,” Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said. “Im just worried about the next game. We do
have more than enough to win with.” The Sixers won three straight playoff games
for the first time since Allen Iverson fueled their run to the 2001 NBA finals.
Holiday was sensational down the stretch after a rocky first 3 1/2 quarters. He
missed his first five 3-point attempts until he nailed one to make it 77-73. He
hit another the next time down for a seven-point lead to the delight of a
roaring sellout crowd. They were easily his biggest shots on a 7-of-23 night. He
expects to hear the same noise in the next round. “We have to play like its Game
7,” Holiday said. “We want to win in Chicago.” The undermanned Bulls kept at it
and refused to use playing without their two biggest impact players as an
excuse. C.J. Watson, who scored 17 points, hit a step-back jumper to make it a
two-point game. In a whistle-happy game, Holiday went to the line with 51
seconds left and made both for an 84-80 lead. Suddenly—and shockingly—the
Sixers are a win away from taking a playoff series for the first time since
2003. Carlos Boozer had 23 points and 11 rebounds for the Bulls. Taj Gibson
chipped in 14 points and 12 rebounds. Without a full roster, the Bulls barked at
the refs, talked trash on the court and used every self-motivational tactic they
knew to gain an edge on the Sixers. Noah, injured in Game 3, took charge on the
bench as head cheerleader. John Stallworth Jersey. Wearing a protective
walking boot, he clapped, cheered and offered instruction in the timeout huddle.
Noah was needed more on the court than as a de facto assistant coach. Boozer
actively did his best to keep the Bulls in the game. He played through foul
trouble to score 18 points through three quarters (matching his combined total
for the first two games) and he fought for some of the tough rebounds Noah would
grab. It wasnt enough. The Sixers made 22 of 31 free throws to Chicagos
11-for-14 effort. The Sixers only averaged 18.2 free-throw attempts this season.
“Bottom line, weve got to play better defence without fouling,” Boozer said.
“You cant cry about the referees. Its the playoffs. If we could hold them to 17,
18 points in the fourth quarter, maybe we win that game.” Iguodala played
through right Achilles tendinitis to make so many impact plays for the Sixers.
He halted a Bulls run in the third with a 3 for a 57-56 lead. Bad leg and all,
he still soared for a thunderous dunk on the break in the first half for an
eight-point lead. One of the worst fourth-quarter foul shooters in the NBA,
Iguodala even made both with 26.6 seconds left. “I think the adrenaline carried
me through the game,” Iguodala said. “Its hard to get on your toes, thats the
hardest thing.” Game 4 lacked the electric atmosphere early that accompanies a
post-season game because the Broad Street Run was routed in front of the sports
complex. The Wells Fargo Center was barely half full by tip and the announced
crowd of 20,142 needed time to warm up. By the time Holiday hit his 3s, the
arena was going wild. His sharp shooting in clutch time came at the right time
after a slow start. Holiday and Turner continue to befuddle Collins with their
inconsistency. The under-25 starting backcourt followed a solid Game 3 with a
combined 3 for 22 for eight points in the first half. Lou Williams, perhaps the
leagues top reserve, failed to bail them out with a 2-for-10 effort in the game.
Their struggles were a key reason the depleted Bulls kept the score tight even
without their two stars. The Sixers crashed the boards early without Noah in the
lineup and had 15 second-chance points in the half to grab a 10-point lead.
Hawes hit the go-ahead 20-footer late in the fourth for the Game 3 winner and he
continued his hot hand into Sunday. He had made seven of his first eight shots,
including a 3-pointer right before the second quarter buzzer to send the Sixers
into halftime with 44-42 lead. Notes: Boxer Bernard Hopkins, former NBA great
Dolph Schayes, former Sixers great Julius Erving and actor Bill Murray attended
the game. ... Philadelphia last won a playoff series when it beat New Orleans in
2003. ... The Sixers hold a 3-1 lead in a best-of-seven series for the first
time since the 1984 East semifinals. ... 76ers CEO Adam Aron said there was
nothing the team could do about the start time. ’ ’ ’
