SALT LAKE CITY - The Utah Jazz had an almost unfair advantage before their game
against the Phoenix Suns even began. Tom Brady Jersey . The Suns were without
three starters and had gone into overtime the night before. It took a little
while, but the Jazz took advantage and routed the weary, short-handed Suns
108-86 Thursday night. Utah ran with Phoenix early and by the third quarter the
fatigue and the glaring holes in the Suns starting lineup finally showed. “Any
time someone comes in on a back-to-back and you dont, youre fresh. You should
want to run them early,” said Utahs Deron Williams, who had 17 points and 11
assists. Phoenix was without two-time league MVP Steve Nash of Victoria, who
stayed home with the flu. Grant Hill was recovering from an appendectomy the day
before and Shawn Marion sat behind the bench with a bruised elbow. Still, the
Suns opened with their usual fast pace and stayed within single digits until
midway through the third quarter. Mehmet Okur scored 22 points and pulled down
17 rebounds and Ronnie Brewer tied his career high with 21 points. Utah
outscored Phoenix 28-12 in the third quarter, holding the Suns to just five
field goals and closing the period with seven straight points. “We had a little
lapse there where they were able to catch up to us, but we broke out in the
third quarter because of our defence,” Williams said. “We got some stops and
were able to get out and run and get some easy baskets.” Carlos Boozer added 18
points and Kyle Korver scored 11 for the Jazz, who also were short-handed, but
not nearly to the extent the Suns were. “I wish every team was healthy and I
wish every team had all their players every night. Thats a better indication of
who your are,” Utah coach Jerry Sloan said. Forward Matt Harpring was not with
the team because his wife was in labour, and forward Andrei Kirilenko missed his
third straight game because of inflammation in his lower back. The Suns were
still recovering from Wednesday night, when they rallied from 16 points down to
beat Indiana 129-122 in overtime. Amare Stoudemire had 21 points and 14 rebounds
and Leandro Barbosa scored 25, but were the only Suns to score in double
figures. “I thought for the first half, we gave it a shot. We came out in the
second half and our legs were wobbly,” Phoenix coach Mike DAntoni said. “We just
didnt have enough fire power. We had some guys that tried to get it done, but
didnt quite get it done.” Stoudemire hit a free throw that got Phoenix within
63-54, then the Jazz blew it open with a 13-2 run. Williams started it with a
long alley-oop to Brewer for a dunk as Utah scored six straight points.
Stoudemire got in a dunk for Phoenix, but the Jazz responded with seven points
in a row, taking a 76-56 lead on Okurs 23-foot jumper with about 3 minutes left.
Williams was leading a fast break about 30 seconds later and instead of going
for the points tossed it over to Brewer for another dunk that delighted the
fans. “They put up a lot of points. Theyre a hard team to stop, but once we
started getting stops, it led to easy buckets,” Brewer said. Utah led 86-60 at
the end of the third and reserves for both teams – including all four of
Phoenixs – played most of the fourth. Notes: Nash hadnt missed a game this
season. .. Brian Skinner had the Suns only bench points through three quarters
with two. .. The Jazz opened the second quarter 1-for-15. .. Harprings wife had
a baby girl, the couples second child. .. C.J. Miles started for Kirilenko and
had three blocks. Julian Edelman Jersey . Hell have to settle
for a spot atop the AL Central. Porcello pitched brilliantly into the ninth
inning, and the Detroit Tigers took over first place in their division Saturday
with a 7-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox. Stephen Gostkowski Jersey . The 42-year-old
Jaidee, who was the overnight leader, holed four birdies on the back nine at
Celtic Manor after bogeying the fourth and double-bogeying the par-five ninth,
where he went out of bounds before finding a bunker. http://www.prostorepatriots.com/rob-gronkowski-jerseys
. He wouldnt mind kick-starting his summer with a victory in early May, either.
Funk shot a 3-under 69 in sweltering heat Saturday for a share of the
second-round lead with Tom Lehman in the Insperity Championship. Danny Woodhead Jersey . Savage used an
expletive in his response to the fan, who criticized the GM in several e-mail
exchanges. “It happened after the game,” Savage in an e-mail to The Associated
Press. Nike Rob Gronkowski Jersey . The Thornhill,
Ont., native had an abrupt end to his Wimbledon campaign when he slipped early
in his second-round match and had to retire with a painful right hip injury.
COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. —Former Dodgers first baseman Gil Hodges and general manager
Buzzie Bavasi are among 10 candidates for the baseball Hall of Fame who will be
on the Veterans Committee ballot next month. Charlie Finley, Ken Boyer, Jim
Kaat, Minnie Minoso, Tony Oliva, Allie Reynolds, Ron Santo and Luis Tiant also
will be on the Golden Era ballot, which will be voted on by the 16-member
committee on Dec. 5 at the winter meetings in Dallas. This years committee will
consider candidates from the so-called “Golden Era,” from 1947-72. Candidates
must receive votes on 75 per cent of the ballot to be elected. Those elected
will be inducted on July 22 along with any players voted in by the Baseball
Writers Association of America on Jan. 9. An eight-time all-star, Hodges helped
the Dodgers win seven pennants and two World Series, then managed the New York
Mets to their first World Series title in 1969. His 63.4 per cent vote on his
final BBWAA ballot in 1983 is the highest percentage for a plaayer who didnt
enter the Hall in a later year. Brandon Bolden Jersey. The Dodgers won four
World Series and eight pennants while Bavasi was GM from 1951-67, and he went on
to head baseball operations for the San Diego Padres (1968-77) and California
Angels (1978-84). Finley owned the Kansas City and Oakland As from 1960-80,
winning three World Series titles while feuding with his players and baseball
commissioner Bowie Kuhn. The committee that will vote includes Jays president
Paul Beeston, Hall of Famers Hank Aaron, Al Kaline, Ralph Kiner, Tommy Lasorda,
Juan Marichal, Brooks Robinson, Don Sutton and Billy Williams; current team
executives Bill DeWitt, Roland Hemond and Gene Michael, retired executive Al
Rosen and media members Dick Kaegel, Jack OConnell and Dave Van Dyck. The
pre-integration era (1871-46) will be considered at the 2012 winter meetings and
the expansion era (1973-present) in 2013, when retired managers Bobby Cox, Tony
La Russa and Joe Torre are likely to be on the ballot. ’ ’ ’
