Spain found their form in the final 20 minutes to beat Russia 67-59 and advance
to the gold-medal matchup at the London 2012 Olympic Games. Earl Campbell Jersey . It was a tale of two
halves for Spain, as they only managed 20 points in the opening half but the
offense came alive in the second half and was more efficient than it has been
over the course of the whole tournament. “I think the team showed their mental
strength,” Spains coach Sergio Scariolo said. “We just adjusted a few things
during the break and in that second half we just did what we had to do.” There
was not a lot of flow in the opening 10 minutes, as both teams seemed to be
feeling each other out and settled for long-range jump shots. They were a
combined 3-of-17 from behind the arc. The inside-outside combination of
Sasha Kaun and Serge Monya helped Russia open up an 11-point lead at halftime.
In one stretch of two minutes, Monya hit three three-pointers. Unfortunately for
Russia, he would not make another, finishing the game with nine points. Early in
the third quarter, former Denver Nugget Rudy Fernandez hit a pair of big
three-pointers that seemed to ignite the Spanish side. By the end of the third
quarter, Spain had closed the gap. After recording 20 first-half points, they
scored 26 in the third quarter alone. “We knew that we had to do more. We knew
that we had to improve,” Fernandez said. “We demonstrated in the second half of
our game against France that we have a good defence and I think today we showed
again that we have a good defence.” Just as importantly, Russias star player,
Andrei Kirilenko got into foul trouble, picking up his fourth, early in the
final period on a reach-in. He was forced to the bench as the Spanish lead
continued to grow. Toronto Raptors point guard Jose Calderon then caught fire
from long range, burying several key shots from beyond the arc. He finished with
14 points. “Joses four three-pointers opened the game,” Spanish guard
Sergio Rodriguez said. Those long-range makes also cleared space for Los Angeles
Lakers centre Pau Gasol, who along with Calderon, finished off Russia. Gasol
powered the inside game for Spain with 16 points and 12 rebounds. Spain will
play the winner of the game between the United States and Argentina for the gold
medal. Matt Hasselbeck Womens Jersey . The New York
Yankees pitcher was in the clubhouse before Tuesday nights game against Texas
and said he realizes that if he has another setback, his season is “probably
over.” Pettitte needs time to rebuild arm strength before October if he wants to
be included in a potential post-season rotation. Kendall Wright Womens Jersey . It still wasnt
enough to take down the sharpshooting Toronto Raptors. Andrea Bargnani scored a
season-high 25 points, Jermaine ONeal added 16 points and 17 rebounds, and the
Raptors were 8-for-8 on three-pointers in the second half to overcome Wades huge
effort and beat the Miami Heat 101-95 on Wednesday night. http://www.officialtennesseetitansgear.com/chris-johnson-jerseys
. – After playing nose tackle in the Redskins new 3-4 defence for the first time
- albeit on the second string, and in an exhibition game – Albert Haynesworth is
coming around to the idea. Bruce Matthews Jersey . Luke Donald finished
atop the money list and also led the regular tour with the lowest bogey average
(2.01 per round). Chris Johnson Womens Jersey . Reus
capitalized on a blunder from Manuel Neuer to score in the 11th minute, when he
returned the Germany goalkeepers attempted clearance from 30 metres (yards). “Im
sorry. My loose pass led to the defeat,” Neuer said.(Sports Network) – The
Toronto Blue Jays continue their 10-day, nine-game road trip with a stop in
Miami this evening for the first of three meetings against the Marlins. Toronto
lost two of three games in Milwaukee and is coming off Wednesdays 8-3 setback to
the Brewers at Miller Park. The Blue Jays rotation has been hit hard by the
injury bug and Joel Carreno was the latest to take the mound. Carreno was called
up from Triple-A Las Vegas and lasted only three innings, giving up five runs
and five hits, including a trio of home runs. “In this ballpark, its
unforgiving,” Blue Jays manager John Farrell said. “If you make a mistake and
its elevated, youre going to pay for it. They swung the bats exceptionally well
today.” Edwin Encarnacion homered for a third straight game and Jose Bautista
finished 0-for-4 at the plate. Bautista had reached base safely in 19
consecutive contests, collecting 10 homers and 20 RBI over that period. Toronto
is second in the majors with 101 home runs. The Yankees are first with 105. Blue
Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie left Wednesdays game after the seventh inning
due to right knee soreness. He sustained the problem after sliding into third
base in the seventh inning, and is expected to play tonight. “Its not enough to
make me not play, but at the same time, I just thought it was time to throw some
ice on it,” Lawrie said Wednesday on the clubs site. “And tomorrow weve got an
off day, which is good. We can obviously treat it tomorrow and ice it all day
and then be back in there the next day.” The Blue Jays added pitcher
Sean OSullivan on Thursday in a deal with Kansas City to bolster rotation depth.
Brandon Morrow, Kyle Drabek, Drew Hutchison and Dustin McGowan are all sidelined
due to injury, but ace Ricky Romero gets the nod Friday in Miami. Romero has
been fortunate to avoid any setbacks this season and is 3-0 in his last six
starts. Romero has recorded consecutive no-decisions and previously pitched in
Saturdays 6-5 win over Philadelphia, as he battled through six innings and
permitted four runs and seven hits. Warren Moon Jersey. The lefty is 7-1 with a
lofty 4.28 ERA in 14 starts this season and will take on the Marlins for the
first time. He is 2-1 in seven starts away from Rogers Centre this season.
Toronto will also visit Boston on the trek and hasnt defeated the Marlins since
a 7-6 win in 10 innings on June 8, 2001. The Marlins start a nine-game homestand
tonight with the Blue Jays. Besides playing in front of the home crowd, the
Marlins have a good shot at bouncing back since they have won eight in a row
against the Blue Jays and are 14-4 in this series since the 1998 campaign. The
Marlins had a 15-minute meeting with Loria following a 15-5 loss to the Boston
Red Sox, then dropped a 6-5 decision last night in the series finale at Fenway
Park. Giancarlo Stanton homered and both Greg Dobbs and Omar Infante finished
with two hits and two RBI for Miami, which has lost four in a row and 13 of its
last 15 contests. Miami blew a 5-3 lead in the eighth inning, as
Will Middlebrooks homered and Daniel Nava added an RBI single. Edward Mujica was
dealt the loss and starter Carlos Zambrano lasted five innings on the hill,
surrendering three runs and five hits. “Its not about how you start, its how you
finish. Our finish line was very narrow,” Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen said.
“We have to step it up a notch.” Miami, which scored five runs in each loss to
the Red Sox, went 1-5 on the road trip and will turn to Anibal Sanchez for some
relief this evening at Marlins Park. Sanchez may not be the best option to rally
the troops since he is just 1-5 with a 4.13 earned run average in his last eight
starts. Sanchez did not record a decision in Saturdays 4-3 win at Tampa Bay and
was reached for three runs in 6 1/3 innings. He is 3-5 in 13 starts this season
to go along with a 3.47 ERA and has never faced Toronto. The right-hander has
made seven starts at home in 2012, going 1-4 with a 4.60 ERA. ’ ’ ’
