BOSTON —Derrick Rose was out again for the Bulls game against Boston on Sunday
with what coach Tom Thibodeau called “stiffness” in his back and will see a
specialist when the team gets back to Chicago. Terry Bradshaw Jersey . The reigning MVP also
missed Fridays win at Charlotte. “Its not as cleared up as we would have liked
right now,” Thibodeau said before Sundays game. “Hes still got some stiffness.
We thought it would be better to have him sit out.” Rose hurt his back earlier
in the week and was limited in a win over New Orleans on Wednesday. “Youre
always concerned,” Thibodeau said. “Its something hes had before. He had it in
high school.” Thibodeau hoped Rose would be able to play again soon. “The backs
are tricky,” he said. “Thats why hes going to see a specialist.” C.J. Watson
started in his place. Rose is averaging 22 points and 7.8 assists for the
Eastern Conference leaders. Isaac Redman Womens Jersey . The Oklahoma
City Thunder may just have to get ugly if they hope to make it a series. The
Thunder have struggled to corral a San Antonio offence that is clicking on all
cylinders during a 20-game winning streak, the longest any NBA team has been
able to maintain into the playoffs. Antonio Brown Womens Jersey . Gee shook off
the rough patch in an otherwise strong outing, Lucas Duda backed him with a
homer and single to drive in four runs, and the New York Mets beat the Colorado
Rockies 7-5 on Saturday night. http://www.pittsburghsteelersforsale.com/hines-ward-jerseys
. On a day when the Winnipeg Goldeyes made two errors, exceptional pitching and
a big three-run homer were enough. Jack Lambert Jersey .Y. – Cam Newton and
Andy Dalton were the only rookie quarterbacks to start every game last season.
Heath Miller Jersey . Oates, a former Capital
who was also chosen for induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame on Tuesday, was
an assistant coach with the New Jersey Devils two years ago and helped guide the
team to a Stanley Cup Final berth earlier this month.VANCOUVER—It took longer
than expected, but Andrew Harris earned a place in CFL history Friday night.
With a five-yard gain 1:26 into the first quarter, the B.C. Lions running back
surpassed 1,000 yards rushing for the first time in his career as the Lions
clinched first place in the West Division with a 39-19 victory over the Edmonton
Eskimos. “Its cool, but now weve got first place sewed up and thats the biggest
thing for us tonight,” said Harris, a 25-year-old Winnipeg native. Harris
entered the game needing only 17 yards to reach quadruple digits, but he was
held in check most of the night and gains negated by a penalty and tackles for
losses. “It was tough sledding out there,” said Harris who finished with 42
rushing yards. “You just had to fight to get those extra yards. It was good to
get over the milestone. Ive just gotta get better from here. That wasnt my best
game. There are some areas I need to work on and just go back to the basics a
little bit.” While recording his personal accomplishment, Harris enabled himself
and Calgary counterpart Jon Cornish became the first Canadians in 56 years to
rush for 1,000 yards in the same season. Normie Kwong of the Edmonton Eskimos
and Gerry James of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers were the last Canadians to
accomplish the feat together back in 1956. Cornish, a New Westminster, B.C.,
native whose team was idle Friday, surpassed 1,000 yards earlier in the season.
“Its amazing,” said Harris. “Cornish is an unreal back and you know Im just
honoured to be in that same class with him and all the great Canadian backs weve
had in the league. I know hes working to get better and so am I. “Im just
looking forward to being in the league with him for the next couplee of years
and seeing the numbers you put up for the future. Ben Roethlisberger Jersey. ” Harris became
just the ninth Canadian to rush for 1,000 yards. The last Canadian to do so was
Edmontons Jerome Messam last season. No Lion had rushed for 1,000 yards since
Sean Millington in 2000. “I wasnt really thinking about it too much,” said
Harris. “I was just going with the game flow and I knew eventually I would pop
one or two decent runs. So it happened there in the fourth quarter. “I dont know
exactly when I went over a thousand, but its just part of the game, you got to
stay at it and stay focused on the things at hand.” He finally broke the barrier
on a hand-off from B.C. quarterback Mike Reilly, who is usually the backup
quarterback but started in place of injured starter Travis Lulay. Lulay, nursing
a shoulder injury, was in the lineup, but watched the game from the sidelines.
Harris has emerged as a star the past two seasons after reaching the CFL via the
Canadian junior ranks rather than the more traditional and easier university
route. Although tailback is usually a position for imports, he has paved the way
for other teams to go with Canadians. He was never drafted, but became Lions
property when they listed him as a territorial protection while he was playing
for the Vancouver Island Raiders. Earlier this season, he set a CFL record for
combined rushing and receiving yards that Terry Evanshen had held since 1967.
Harris is in position to accumulate 2,000 yards on the season. But the task
became more difficult as he recorded just 20 receiving yards against the
Eskimos. And, now that the Lions (12-4) have clinched top spot in the West, he
will likely see less action in their last two games of the regular season. ’ ’ ’
