LOS ANGELES, Calif. Von Miller Camo Jersey . – On the day that
Chauncey Billups underwent surgery in Colorado to repair a torn left Achilles
that ended his season, Randy Foye demonstrated why the Los Angeles Clippers have
the confidence to start him at shooting guard. Foye scored all 10 of his points
in the fourth quarter against his former team, leading the Clippers to a 102-84
victory over the Washington Wizards on Wednesday night. “Foye was outstanding,
and were going to need that from him,” point guard Chris Paul said. “Tonight he
hit some very timely threes that gave us some separation. Ive known him for
years and I used to play against him when he was in Minnesota. “Foye was one of
those guys who used to give us fits because hes such a good player. I think at
times, hes better than he thinks he is. He can handle the ball, hes big and
strong and athletic, and he can shoot it. So we just need him to keep getting
his confidence.” Blake Griffin had 23 points and 15 rebounds, Caron Butler added
21 points and the Clippers increased their lead in the Pacific Division to two
games over the idle Lakers with their ninth victory in 12 contests. Paul had 16
points and nine assists. Coming off a 96-92 loss at Dallas in which Foye 0 for 7
from the field, the Clippers took an eight-point lead into the fourth quarter
before John Wall cut it to 75-72 on a 16-footer with 10:12 remaining. But Foye
completely took during the next 3 1/2 minutes, after missing all four shots in
26 minutes over the first three quarters. The six-year veteran, who spent the
2009-10 season with the Wizards before signing with the Clippers as a free agent
in July 2010, started his one-man assault with a three-pointer, then made two
free throws and hustled after an offensive rebound to set up another three by
Mo Williams. Foye made two more free throws and capped his run with a
three-pointer that made it 88-76 with 6:59 to play. From then on, it was no
contest. “Mo drove and then he found me on the left wing, and I just let it go,”
Foye said. “I didnt shoot too well in Dallas, and I was upset with myself. So I
got here early and took some shots trying to get myself going. I didnt shoot too
well early on, but once I hit a shot, I felt good.” The Clippers have beaten the
Wizards seven consecutive times — including a double-overtime win last March at
Staples Center in which Griffin had 33 points, 17 rebounds and 10 assists in a
career-high 51 1/2 minutes for his first NBA triple-double. The Clippers longest
winning streak against any club is 11 against Dallas from 1992-1994. Wall and
JaVale McGee led Washington with 18 points each. The Wizards, coming off their
second straight road win after an 0-10 start, werent able to sustain their
momentum following Tuesday nights 124-109 victory at Portland. “We did a great
job managing the game, running pick(equals)-and-rolls and getting everyone
involved,” Wall said. “Its tough to play them because they can play defence, run
and score.” Former USC guard Nick Young missed his first nine shots and finished
5 for 18 with 14 points after getting a season-high 35 against the Trail
Blazers. “We wanted to make him as uncomfortable as possible. That was the
plan,” Foye said. “You cant just let him stand out there and take target
practice.” Young ended his field goal drought with a three-pointer that trimmed
the Clippers lead to 56-55 with 7:19 left in the third quarter and made two more
from behind the arc in a 1:19 span to put Washington back in front 60-58 with
5:57 left in the period. “My teammates were encouraging me all night long, and I
tried to get it going in the second half,” Young said. “It was just one of those
nights. We played hard and fought, but it was back-to-back games, and they made
a push in the fourth quarter.” Rookie forward Jan Vesely threw down an
uncontested dunk that gave the Wizards a 62-60 edge with 5:07 left in the third.
But he returned to the bench 15 seconds later after picking up his fifth foul,
and Griffin gave the Clippers the lead for good with a back-to-back dunks to
make it 70-66. The first came after his offensive rebound of Foyes missed
three-pointer, the other off an alley-oop lob by Paul with 2:47 left in the
quarter. Notes: Howard Eisley, a player development assistant with the Clippers
who sits right behind their bench during games, was fined $15,000 by the NBA on
Wednesday for verbal abuse of an official. The incident took place at the end of
the Mondays 96-92 loss at Dallas. “It was kind of unexpected, but the league
felt it was warranted — and the rules are strict,” coach Vinny Del Negro said.
... Paul received a technical foul with 1:59 left in the second quarter, the
32nd called against Clippers players and coaches this season. They have yet to
have anyone ejected from a game with two, but Paul came close 39 seconds later
after fouling Wall. ... The game featured the first overall pick in three
drafts: Griffin (2009), Wall (2010) and Kenyon Martin (2000). Martin made his
home debut with the Clippers, playing 23 minutes and getting four points and
four rebounds in his fifth game with the club after signing as a free agent Feb.

Jersey Devils are still alive in the Stanley Cup chase because of a player who
spent most of the season off the ice working his way back from an Achilles
tendon injury. Demaryius Thomas Camo Jersey . But that was
before the shenanigans in the ninth inning. Sunday afternoon in front of 6,149
fans at Shaw Park, the Winnipeg Goldeyes beat the Gary SouthShore RailCats 6-5
in a thriller.Since I was a kid, Ive been a Lakers fan. Hearing that Steve Nash,
the greatest basketball talent this country has ever produced, is on his way to
Los Angeles, should be welcome news. But it doesnt feel that way at all. Why?
Because Im a Torontonian thats why. I totally understand why Nash chose the
Lakers over the Raptors or any other team for that matter.  He took less money
to stay close to his family, play alongside one of the five greatest players
ever in Kobe Bryant, will contend for a title, and enjoy warm winters in
southern California. And Nash deserves it all.  Who wouldnt take that deal? But
Toronto needed Nash for so many reasons beyond basketball. The city is broken.
Politically, emotionally, and most noticeably with its pro-sports teams. Cities
rally around teams. It happens in every city. It may be a different sport, but
its what people do. What did the Stanley Cup runs in Edmonton, Ottawa and
Calgary do in recent years? How about the Olympics for Vancouver? Toronto is
beaten up. It has been 19 years since the Blue Jays were last in the
post-season. The Raptors have won only one playoff round since joining the NBA
in 1995. It has been eight years since the Argos won a Grey Cup. TFC has been a
fiasco since joining MLS. And the Leafs?  Never mind the Cup drought since 1967,
theyre the only NHL team not to make the playoffs in the post-lockout era. 
PPolitically, the divide between the right and left has never felt greater in
the GTA. Shannon Sharpe Jersey. . Its a city that
seems more rundown than the Gardiner Expressway, a traffic artery that seems to
be crumbling daily. In recent weeks, a string of gun violence has left Canadas
largest community shaken while local authorities plead with residents the city
is still safe. Steve Nash was the perfect cure for a city with a frail psyche.
He couldve provided that spark the city needed to feel good about itself again.
For all this talk about how Toronto is the Centre of the Universe, Hogtown is a
sensitive soul. There was anger in the winter when the Leafs collapsed, and the
Jays failed to reel in Yu Darvish or even Prince Fielder. With Nash, its
different. Its not anger, just disappointment. Nash represents himself globally
in a way we should all feel proud of. Hes the ideal Canadian. Smart, athletic,
innovative, and with an incredibly social concious. No one expected a title in
Toronto from Nash, and this isnt to say he shouldve been obligated to come here
in the first place. After all, hes a B.C. boy. But this city was looking for a
ray of sunshine. Someone to make this city feel good about itself.  Theyll just
have to find it someplace else. In the meantime, maybe we can all just crash on
Landry Fields couch until the clouds over the CN Tower lift.
