LONDON - Tony Parker scored 27 points and Nicolas Batum added 21 to lead France
to an 82-74 victory over Lithuania in the London 2012 Olympic Games mens
basketball tournament on Thursday. Brett Favre Falcons Jersey . Ronny Turiaf,
with the Los Angeles Clippers, pulled down 10 rebounds for France, which was led
by its NBA players to its second win in three games. Batum plays with the
Portland Trail Blazers. San Antonio Spurs guard Parker sank a 3-pointer to
finish a 10-2 run that gave France a 59-52 lead at the end of third quarter and
Lithuania never got closer than six after that. Parker, wearing goggles to
protect a surgically repaired left eye, scored seven of Frances last eight
points. Linas Kleiza led Lithuania (1-2) with 17 points and Martynas Pocius
added 15 off the bench. Matt Ryan Womens Jersey . If he can fire up
the fans back at home, too, the Washington Capitals could be in store for a deep
playoff run. Ovechkin scored a power-play goal with 7:27 remaining to snap a tie
and gave the Capitals a 3-2 victory over the New York Rangers that squared the
Eastern Conference semifinal series 1-1 on Monday night. Chris Owens Jersey . Alexey Sorokin, speaking
on the sidelines of a sports conference in Dubai, said he was “disappointed”
that Russia continues to be associated with football violence and admitted more
needed to be done to stamp out the problem. The issue was highlighted last month
when a match between Dynamo Moscow and Zenit St. http://www.shopnflfalconsgears.com/nike-roddy-white-pink-jersey/
. Teixeira was down to bat fifth and play first base in Monday nights game
against Boston, the start of a three-game series that is to end the regular
season. Tyson Clabo Jersey . The contract is for two
years with the second year partially guaranteed. Brent Grimes Jersey . The Pittsburgh Steelers
saw enough to ask their franchise quarterback to throw a few more over the next
few days, hoping he can recover in time to salvage a season in danger of
slipping through their fingers.Each week, The Reporters put their thumbs out to
the good and the bad in the world of sports. This week, they discuss the
surprising Indianapolis Colts, uncertainty surrounding Olympic hockey in 2014,
the notion of Vince Carter returning to the Raptors and baseballs GM meetings.
Bruce Arthur, National Post: My thumb is up to the Indianapolis Colts and their
head coach in absentia Chuck Pagano, whose team won again this week, four days
after he paid them a visit. Pagano was diagnosed with leukemia before the season
began, and the Colts were coming off a two-win season, and it felt like there
were darker times ahead. Well, the Colts are 6-3, and they won that sixth game
after shaving their heads in solidarity with Pagano, whose post-game visit after
win #5 was the stuff of goose bumps. My vision that Im living, he said, is to
see two more daughters getting married, dance at their wedding, and then hoist
that Lombardi several times. The NFL, and sports, is a cynical business. The
Colts, right now, are anything but. Steve Simmons, Sun Media: My thumb is down
to all the uncertainty regarding the hockey tournament at the 2014 Winter
Olympics in Sochi, Russia. It isnt Sochis fault that the NHL and NHLPA dont have
a deal and that the parameters for the Olympic tournament remain guesswork at
this time. Normally, with the Olympics little more than a year away, this would
be the time for speculation on who might play, or who should play or will play
for Team Canada. Instead, general manager Steve Yzerman doesnt even know whether
NHHL players will be cleared to play, whether the lost time this year will
translate to no lost time next year. Roddy White Limited Jersey. Or whether
Olympic hockey will revert to what it was pre-1998. The thing is, nobody knows.
And once again, fans are left to only guess. Michael Farber, Sports Illustrated:
Because you really cant go home again, my thumb is down to the notion of Vince
Carter returning to the Raptors. Now in his basketball dotage in Dallas, the
35-year-old said he would be happy to return to Toronto for one last shot. Once
he was the brightest sports star in the city, bigger than any Leaf or Blue Jay
at the time, but retracing steps is rarely a wise career path. Carter might be
wistful because his Raptor years were the best of a notable career that,
nevertheless, feels vaguely disappointing. But no one can soar when burdened
with the baggage that Carter, loved and loathed, accumulated in Toronto. Dave
Hodge, TSN: My thumb is up to the sensible consideration of three items by
baseball general managers at their meetings in California. They are studying a
broader use of instant replay. As broad as possible would be my suggestion. They
are being urged to amend the September call-up rule that allows as many as 40
players on a big-league roster – some teams use it, others dont, and there
should be standardization. And there are talks designed to better protect
pitchers heads with some sort of helmet or cap liner. Makes for a good agenda,
especially if it results in quick action, and not more talking next year. ’ ’ ’
