ASHBURN, Va. Andre Johnson Womens Jersey . —The
Washington Redskins released struggling kicker Billy Cundiff on Tuesday and
replaced him with free agent Kai Forbath. Forbath emerged as the winner in a
tryout at Redskins Park. He won the Lou Groza Award with UCLA in 2009 as the top
kicker in college football, but he has yet to play in the NFL. Cundiff was
signed late in preseason after he was waived by the Baltimore Ravens. He has
been the worst kicker in the league this year, making only seven of 12 field
goal attempts. Two of his misses have been from inside 40 yards, including a
31-yard misfire in Sundays 24-17 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Forbath was signed
as an undrafted free agent by the Dallas Cowboys last year and spent the entire
season on the non-football injured reserve list. He spent this years training
camp with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and made all five field goal attempts in
preseason games before being released on Aug. 31. The Redskins also signed
linebacker Mario Addison from the Indianapolis Colts practice squad and released
linebacker Markus White. Matt Schaub Jersey . The 25-year-old Kruger
made four birdies and overcame a bogey on the 17th to finish with a 14-under
total of 274. Jorge Campillo of Spain and Marcel Siem of Germany were two shots
back in a tie for second. J.J. Watt Youth Jersey . MacTavish, 53, was
head coach of the Oilers for eight seasons from 2000 and 2009, including
Edmontons run to the Stanley Cup final in 2006 when they lost in seven games to
the Carolina Hurricanes. http://www.shopthetexans.com/whitney-mercilus-jersey
. —Linebackers Curtis Lofton and David Hawthorne represented two of the Saints
most important acquisitions in free agency and quickly took over starting roles
in their first preseason with New Orleans. Johnathan Joseph Jersey . With studs
Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels still hurling, who would have thought Joe Blanton
would be the one to step up and deliver a sterling performance? Not Phillies

. Little drama, either. Novak Djokovic simply
ground his way to another tournament title match. CHARLOTTE, N.C. —The
Charlotte Bobcats appear to be a collision course with NBA futility. The Bobcats
lost a franchise-record 17th straight game 75-67 to New Orleans Monday night and
took a step closer to finishing the season with the worst winning percentage in
league history. If the Bobcats fail to win any of their remaining games theyll
finish with a .106 winning percentage, which would be worse than the 1972-73
Philadelphia 76ers, who finished 9-73 for a winning percentage of .110. It would
seem Charlottes best shot at a win is next Monday at Washington, the
second-worst team in the league. However, that same Wizards team just throttled
the Bobcats by 28 points in Charlotte last week, so the reality is Monday night
might have been their best chance to win a game. “The whole year has been
frustrating but this game was more frustrating because we really got ourselves
up for this one,” said Gerald Henderson, who finished with a game-high 27
points. “It was a close game the whole game but we couldnt score. It was a
struggle to score.” Henderson seemed to be the only one who could score for the
Bobcats, who shot 30 per cent from the field. Stephen Silas, who stepped in
again to coach the Bobcats for his father Paul, said he went through the entire
playbook looking for something that would work. “The only thing that seemed to
work was handing the ball to Gerald Henderson to try to get in the paint,”
Stephen Silas said. The loss assured the Bobcats (7-53) of the worst record in
the league, giving them a 25 per cent chance of landing the No. 1 pick in the
NBA lottery on May 30. The Bobcats and the rest of the NBA will learn Tuesday if
potential top pick Anthony Davis will enter the draft as a press conference in
scheduled in Lexington, Ky. If the Bobcats can land him it would be an immediate
help to a team that has struggled both offensively and defensively this season.
The Hornets won despite playing without leading scorers Eric Gordon and
Chris Kaman and shooting just 34 per cent from the floor. Gordon was given the
night off to rest, but no reason was given as to why Kaman was held out of
action. Greivis Vasquez picked up the slack scoring 20 points, while Carl Landry
added 14 points and 12 rebounds off thhe bench for New Orleans. Arian Foster Youth Jersey. It was the
second-lowest scoring NBA game this season. “It wasnt pretty,” Hornets coach
Monty Williams said. For a while, the teams flirted with a different kind of NBA
futility. The league record for fewest points scored in a game was set on Feb.
27, 1955 when the Milwaukee Hawks and Boston Celtics combined for 119. This game
was tied at 47 after three quarters. The Bobcats trailed by as many as eight in
the second quarter but closed the half on an 18-6 run to take a 39-35 lead at
the break as Kemba Walker provided a spark with seven points during the stretch.
The teams combined to shoot 37 per cent in the first half. Things got
progressively worst in the third quarter as they combined to score just 20
points—the lowest in the league in a quarter this season and the fewest since
2004—on 15 per cent (6 for 40) shooting. The Hornets put a run together to
start the fourth quarter and built their lead to seven after Marco Belinelli
knocked down a 3-pointer from the top of the key. The Bobcats would claw back to
close the gap to two after Henderson got hot, but Vazquez hit a runner in the
lane to make it a two-possession game. The Bobcats couldnt get any closer after
that. Williams was not thrilled with his teams shot selection after the game.
“(We) missed some shots early but they have to keep taking them,” Williams said.
“Guys have to play with confidence. We dont want guys thinking about missing
shots, especially when you dont have to look over your shoulder. Its not like Im
going to put somebody else in the game to take your spot.” The Hornets only
played nine guys. Henderson said the goal from here on out for the Bobcats is to
get a win and avoid setting the dubious NBA record. “Absolutely,” Henderson
said. “The Hornets are a good team, but we look at them as similar to us. This
is a game we wanted to win. You look on the schedule and we felt like this was
one we could really get. Thats why its even more frustrating.” NOTES: NASCAR
driver Denny Hamlin took in the game from courtside. ... The Bobcats 23 field
goals and .303 shooting percentage was their worst this season. ...Belinelli
scored in double figures for the 41st time this season. ’ ’ ’
