guard hit six 3-pointers

Messagepar chenjian20 » Lun 30 Juil 2018, 05:33

Paul George has found his shot.

Actually Carlton Fisk Jersey , the Oklahoma City Thunder All-Star has been on a roll heading into the playoffs.

In the five regular season games in April, he averaged 27.6 points and made 41 percent of his 3-pointers and 90 percent of his free throws. He closed the regular season with a 40-point outburst against Memphis.

He kept it up in OKC’s playoff opener, scoring 36 points and setting a Thunder playoff record with eight 3-pointers as Oklahoma City beat Utah 116-108 .

It took George a minute to consistently take the scoring pressure off Russell Westbrook. He struggled on offense right after the All-Star break and said he couldn’t find his shot.

”To his credit, when he was going through a little bit of that slump where he wasn’t shooting the ball particularly well, he really put extra work in,” Thunder coach Billy Donovan said. ”I felt like he was really driven and focused to work his way through it.”

A couple of former OKC standouts are also thriving early in the postseason.

Victor Oladipo – the player who George was traded for – was just as impressive for Indiana . The Pacers hope to take a 2-0 lead the series against Cleveland and put LeBron James and the Cavaliers on the ropes Wednesday.

Another former Thunder player, Houston’s James Harden Cheap Ito Smith Jersey , was the best of the George-Oladipo-Harden trio. The Rockets MVP candidate scored 44 points in Houston’s win against Minnesota .

If George is to keep rolling for the Thunder in Game 2 Wednesday he’ll have to do it with a right hip bruise, and after being limited in practice on Tuesday.

”He was not able to do very much today,” Donovan said. ”He did some things in practice. Not much. We’ll probably see where he’s at after shootaround tomorrow and probably evaluate him going into the game.”

JAZZ AT THUNDER

Oklahoma City leads 1-0. Game 2, 7 p.m. Central, NBA TV

NEED TO KNOW: The fact that George was Oklahoma City’s leading scorer in the opener is significant. He’s the first player other than Kevin Durant or Westbrook to lead the Thunder in scoring in a playoff game since Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals against San Antonio in 2016. Oklahoma City has played 18 playoff games since then.

KEEP AN EYE ON: Utah C Rudy Gobert. He had 14 points and seven rebounds in the opener and committed four fouls. The Jazz likely will need more from him to be competitive.

INJURY UPDATE: Utah rookie guard Donovan Mitchell suffered a left foot contusion in Game 1, and a Jazz spokesman said he is questionable for Game 2. He went through portions of Tuesday’s practice. He had 27 points and 10 rebounds in the opener after averaging 20.5 points in the regular season.

PRESSURE IS ON: Jazz G Ricky Rubio and Utah F Joe Ingles. Rubio scored 13 points on 5 for 18 shooting in the opener. He will need to hit open shots and take pressure off Mitchell in Game 2. Ingles struggled to get the ball against George’s defense in Game 1. He also had just one assist in Game 1, well below his regular season average of 4.8.

TIMBERWOLVES AT ROCKETS

Houston leads 1-0. Game 2 Authentic Jonathan Cooper Jersey , 9:30 p.m., TNT

NEED TO KNOW: Houston center Clint Capela played a major role in Game 1, scoring 20 points and grabbing 10 rebounds before halftime. Harden believes Capela could be the X-factor in this series and raved about his work in the first game. ”You could just see a different Clint, he was running so fast and I had no choice but to get him the ball,” Harden said. ”And then defensively the way he’s been blocking shots, rebounding, he was just like a deer out there.”

KEEP AN EYE ON: Houston’s 3-point shooting. The Rockets won Game 1 despite making just 10 of 37 3-pointers. James Harden was 7 for 12 on 3-pointers Cheap Nathan Shepherd Jersey , but Trevor Ariza, P.J. Tucker, Eric Gordon and Paul combined to make just 3 of their 22 tries.

INJURY UPDATE: Houston’s Ryan Anderson, who missed the last four regular-season games and the playoff opener with a sprained left ankle, returned to practice on Tuesday and could play on Wednesday.

Minnesota coach Tom Thibodeau said that Jimmy Butler’s right wrist is ”fine” despite his wearing a wrap on it during pregame warmups on Sunday.

PRESSURE IS ON: Minnesota’s Karl-Anthony Towns. The Wolves need the All-Star big man to rebound in Game 2 after scoring just eight points in the opener. Towns said he needs to ”play better all-around” and Thibodeau said he has to ”be more active” to combat Houston’s double-teams and switching.

PACERS AT CAVALIERS

Indiana leads 1-0, Game 2, 7 p.m. TNT

NEED TO KNOW: LeBron James has never lost a first-round series Cheap Roquan Smith Jersey , going 12-0. This is the first time he’s been down 0-1 in an opening round. Cleveland had won its first 10 playoff games in each of the past two seasons.

KEEP AN EYE ON: Cleveland’s defensive strategy against Victor Oladipo. Indiana’s quick All-Star guard hit six 3-pointers – in the opener. The Cavaliers had some success in blitzing Oladipo, but he made good decisions with the ball and took advantage when the Cavs switched defenders by exploiting matchups against Cleveland’s slower post players.

INJURY UPDATE: Cavs starting point George Hill is feeling the effects of a hard shot to the back on a screen set by Indiana’s Trevor Booker in Game 1. Hill practiced on Tuesday and said he’s doing better, but his status remains uncertain for Game 2. Also, Cleveland forward Kyle Korver said his right foot has improved. The injury has bothered him for more than a month and limited him to four minutes in the opener.

Philadelphia 76ers coach Brett Brown had an A-list comparison for 1-B first-round pick Zhaire Smith: Disgruntled San Antonio forward Kawhi Leonard.

”I think that when you look at just where I believe Zhaire can be Authentic Geron Christian Jersey , there are some common denominators that Kawhi had when we first brought him to San Antonio,” Brown said.

High praise for the Texas Tech guard.

But why settle for a rookie who may never develop into a franchise player when the Sixers can try and aquire the real deal?

The 76ers are open for business this summer and an organization that has long preached patience is now in the market for marquee talent to team with blossoming stars Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons.

”We are star hunting or star developing,” Brown said Friday. ”You’re not going to win a championship any other way.”

Brown hit on the ”star hunter” phrase at Thursday’s draft and again when he introduced Smith, acquired from Phoenix in a swap of first-rounders, and Wichita State guard Landry Shamet at the team’s New Jersey headquarters.

Brown had called Smith the team’s 1-B choice in the draft after they traded their 1-A pick, Villanova forward Mikal Bridges, to the Suns in a trade that also saw the Sixers net an unprotected first-rounder in 2021.

Sure Cheap Minnesota Vikings Hoodie , the Sixers could keep that pick until `21 when draft rules are expected to change in time for high school graduates to again be eligible. But the real perk of the pick is the ability to dangle it as trade bait as the Sixers hunt in the rarefied air of NBA stars.

”It’s a tiny number of players,” Brown said. ”As we figure out who we deem to be stars, we understand that’s going to be a challenge. We also understand we don’t have to solve all this now.”

Meaning, the 2019 free-agent crop sure looks good, too.

Brown is calling the shots in the front office as the Sixers look for a new general manager in the wake of Bryan Colangelo’s resignation. Brown made the final decisions on draft night and – though he said he has no desire to balance dual roles – he’ll be the face of the franchise with plenty to offer in talent; success (52 wins; playoff series win); a first-class training facility; and at least $26 million in salary cap space.

The Sixers are also dealing with a wild card in Markelle Fultz, the No. 1 pick in last year’s draft whose rookie season was slowed by shoulder and mental issues that resulted in a broken shot and no playing time in Philadelphia’s last seven playoff games.

Fultz has been working with noted skills coach Drew Hanlen on rebuilding his mechanics. Fultz will likely skip summer league as he works on his jumper and tries to join Embiid and Simmons to form a trio of homegrown talent capable of making the Sixers contenders in the East. There’s always a chance Fultz could be packaged with a pick to try and pry Leonard from the Spurs.

Brown was an assistant with the Spurs and has a solid relationship with Leonard. Leonard, the 2014 NBA Finals MVP and two-time NBA defensive player of the year Authentic Cody Latimer Jersey , has requested a trade from San Antonio after missing most of last season with a right quadriceps injury. Spurs GM R.C. Buford said there was a fractured relationship between Leonard and the only franchise he has played for.

Leonard is due just over $20 million next season, and can become a free agent in the summer of 2019. He is eligible to sign a $220 million extension with San Antonio.

If the Sixers strike this summer, they’d have to be confident Leonard would be willing to re-sign with them instead of walking away with nothing to show for the gamble.

The Sixers have their own free agents to deal with, and they’d love to have 3-point ace JJ Redick return, perhaps on another one-year deal. Wayne Ellington and Tyreke Evans, both Philly-area natives, are unrestricted free agents that would fit in a happy homecoming. And Authentic Danny Shelton Jersey , of course, Paul George and LeBron James are on just about every team’s wish list this summer.

The Cavs can offer James a five-year, $209 million deal this summer. It’s possible James could choose to sign a one-year deal again with a player option and go through the free-agency dance again next summer.

The Sixers will get to make a pitch after letting others do it for them.

At Barclays Center, the NBA draft site, a plane flying above the arena carried three banners. One had LeBron James’ No. 23 with a crown and the Liberty Bell; another urges him to ”Strive for GOATNESS”; and the last reads (hash)PHILLYWANTSLEBRON.

Power Home Remodeling, a Philadelphia-based company, has become a James recruiter Andre Ethier Jersey , originally setting up three billboards in Cleveland urging him to come to the city. The company also flew Thursday’s billboards in Brooklyn.

”We’ll be aggressive and attractive in the free-agent marketplace,” Brown said.

But will it be enough?

been a very disappointing

WINNIPEG Authentic Dorian O'Daniel Jersey , Manitoba — The Winnipeg Jets have reached the stage in their season where they only have one goal for their final game — just don’t get hurt.

With second place in the Central Division locked up — they can’t catch Nashville for first and the Minnesota Wild, who the Jets will play in the first round of the playoffs, are permanently entrenched in third — Saturday night’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks will serve little purpose other than maintaining good habits for the postseason.

Well, a couple of personal milestones are possible.

Right winger Patrik Laine is still in the running for the Maurice “Rocket” Richard trophy — he trails Alex Ovechkin in goals, 47 to 44.

Goaltender Connor Hellebuyck has tied Tom Barrasso for the most wins ever by an American goaltender in a season with 43. He is expected to get the start against Chicago. Barrasso set the record with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1992-93.

Laine George Bell Jersey , 19, who broke a seven-game goalless skid this week, has pretty much conceded the goal-scoring race to his boyhood idol.

“A lot of things can happen. But I don’t want to think about that. Because then it’s just going to be hard to play if you’re thinking about those kinds of things,” he told The Winnipeg Sun.

“Those past couple of games I felt like the pucks were bouncing all over the place and just couldn’t get a handle on it. It just affects you when you’re not scoring and when you’re not getting points as a second-line guy. It’s inside your head.

“But my head is pretty strong. I’m not going to let those things affect my head and my game.”

The Jets got an injury scare in Thursday’s snoozer 2-1 win over the Calgary Flames when defenseman Josh Morrissey was sent sliding into the boards, back-first Authentic Jordan Akins Jersey , by Michael Stone in the first period. Jets fans held their breath as Morrissey stayed down for a second and winced as he made his way to the bench. He played a regular shift for the remainder of the game.

Regardless of Saturday’s result, the Jets have already set a franchise record at 51-20-10. Chicago, meanwhile, has been one of the biggest disappointments of the 2017-18 campaign, following up its 50-win season last year with a record of 33-37-10 Authentic Kevin Hogan Jersey , good for last in the Central.

With any playoff aspirations long-gone, the big news out of the Blackhawks was that coach Joel Quenneville and general manager Stan Bowman, the architects of three Stanley Cup winners since 2010, will be back next season.

Team president Joe McDonough told a news conference that he believes in continuity.

“They’ve had an incredible body of success. We’re not tethered to the past. This has been a very disappointing year and our expectations are incredibly high. We’re not going to deviate from those expectations. But I believe both Stan and Joel are the guys that are going to bring this back,” he said.

This marks the second time that the Jets have qualified for the playoffs since moving from Atlanta in 2011. They were swept in four straight games by the Anaheim Ducks in 2015.

You have to go back to 1996 Cheap Nick Nelson Jersey , when that version of the Jets played the Detroit Red Wings in the first round, to find a Jets victory in the post-season. The Jets lost the series 4-2, picking up their last win in Detroit, a 3-1 decision on April 26.

The Lakers unveiled a statue of Elgin Baylor before Friday night’s home game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Baylor’s statue became the sixth that decorates the front of Staples Center Carlos Lee Jersey , joining Shaquille O’Neal, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Jerry West and Chick Hearn.

”I certainly appreciate all the wonderful things people have said about me,” Baylor said. ”But without the wonderful teammates Brad Boxberger Jersey , (this) certainly wouldn’t have been possible. I’d just like to thank my teammates.”

The Lakers selected Baylor first overall in the 1958 NBA draft. He averaged 27.4 points and 13.5 rebounds in 14 seasons for the franchise, including the first two when it played in Minneapolis.

Various Lakers alumni spoke during Baylor’s ceremony, including O’Neal, Johnson, West and Abdul-Jabbar. Johnson said Baylor put entertainment into the NBA Authentic Brandon Parker Jersey , and will always remember that Baylor set the Finals record for single-game points against the Boston Celtics on the road.

”You did some things that Dr. J, Michael Jordan, Kobe (Bryant), myself, we couldn’t do Authentic Kevin Hogan Jersey ,” Johnson said. ”I tried to do it. I just couldn’t hang that long in the air.”

Bryant provided his message to Baylor via video.

”I’ve stole so many of your moves, it’s not even funny,” Bryant said.

West held back tears when speaking about the friendship between him and Baylor. The two played together in Los Angeles.

”This is one of the greatest men I’ve ever met in my live,” West said.

Baylor was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1977. He made the NBA All-Star team 11 times, and won the All-Star Game MVP Award in 1958-59 Authentic John Franklin-Myers Jersey , the same year he was Rookie of the Year.

Baylor was named to the All-NBA First Team 10 times in his career, and holds the all-time record for most points in an NBA Finals game (61).

Baylor was the first player in NBA history to score more than 70 points in a game. He scored 71 against the New York Knicks on Nov. 15, 1960.

For a team with some of the biggest stars in baseball Larry Doby Jersey , the New York Yankees are getting many of their most critical contributions from a remarkable group of unflappable youngsters.

Gleyber Torres hit another three-run homer, fellow rookie Domingo German struck out a career-high 10 for his first major league win and the Yankees edged the Tampa Bay Rays 4-3 in the opener of a four-game series Thursday night.

”All the young guys we have, they’ve been excelling. So, it’s fun to watch,” reliever Dellin Betances said. ”I think the fans are excited to kind of see this wave of young guys just helping this team out and you’re going to be seeing them for a lot of years.”

Aaron Hicks also homered off Blake Snell (8-4) as New York beat the blossoming left-hander for the second time this season and ended his four-game winning streak.

”Gave them a lot of opportunity to do damage,” Snell said. ”Everything was inconsistent.”

German (1-4) allowed Matt Duffy’s home run on the first pitch of the game but quickly recovered to strike out the next three batters.

”Unfazed,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. ”A really strong outing for us, especially after getting punched there right before Roll Call even started.”

Making his seventh start in place of injured Jordan Montgomery, the right-hander permitted three runs Authentic Rick Leonard Jersey , five hits and two walks in his 19th career appearance.

Chad Green and Betances set up Aroldis Chapman for his 19th save in 20 attempts.

”It’s been a long battle for me,” German said through a translator. ”It means a lot. Hopefully I can relax a little more.”

Wilson Ramos and Joey Wendle each had an RBI single for the Rays, who were coming off a three-game sweep of Toronto.

Duffy tried to score from first on Ramos’ run-scoring single in the third when the ball caromed off left fielder Giancarlo Stanton after he charged in for it. Stanton chased down the ball and fired a strike to catcher Gary Sanchez at home plate, nailing Duffy for the final out of the third to keep the score 2-0.

Fresh off a three-day breather, the slumping Sanchez had an eventful night on defense. He also dropped a foul popup for an error, allowed a wild pitch that put a runner in scoring position and threw out Carlos Gomez trying to steal third with one out in the seventh.

Hicks hit an opposite-field homer in the fifth. Aaron Judge singled and Sanchez drew a two-out walk before Torres drove a 96 mph, full-count fastball to left for his 13th homer since being called up from the minors on April 22. This was the first one that didn’t come from the No. 9 hole – Torres batted fifth as the Yankees started nine right-handed hitters against Snell.

The rookie has five three-run homers already, most among big league hitters. Torres also went deep in Wednesday night’s loss to Washington.

”I think when you mature every day, every at-bat Authentic Jonathan Allen Jersey , you believe in what (you) can do,” the 21-year-old Torres said. ”Just try to take good at-bats, believe, focus and do my job.”

New York, with the best record in the majors at 44-20, hasn’t lost consecutive games since May 22-23 at Texas.

Making a strong bid for his first All-Star selection, Snell struck out eight and threw 105 pitches in five innings. He was 3-0 with a 0.38 ERA in his previous four starts.

”We need to get him deep in ballgames. He’s done that all season for us and today for whatever reason, he just didn’t have the command to get it done,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Rays: Gold Glove CF Kevin Kiermaier (right thumb surgery) and SS Adeiny Hechavarria (strained right hamstring) are moving from Class A Charlotte to Triple-A Durham this weekend to continue their rehab assignments. … RHP Chris Archer (left abdominal strain) is likely to play catch Friday Bob Uecker Jersey , Cash said. … INF Daniel Robertson (strained left hamstring) probably will play a rehab game or two at Class A and the team hopes he’ll be ready to come off the disabled list next Thursday, the first day he’s eligible, Cash said.

Yankees: RHP Masahiro Tanaka (two strained hamstrings) was kept home with a virus but is expected back at the ballpark Friday. The issue shouldn’t delay Tanaka’s return, Boone said.

ROSTER MOVE

After the game, the Yankees optioned 1B-DH Tyler Austin to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to open a roster spot for Jonathan Loaisiga. The right-hander will be called up from Double-A Trenton to make his major league debut Friday night, pitching in place of Tanaka.

UP NEXT

Rays: Nathan Eovaldi (1-1) starts Friday night against his former team, his fourth outing since coming back from a second Tommy John surgery. Eovaldi pitched for the Yankees from 2015-16, going 14-3 in 2015, but has never faced New York. ”I wish I would have been able to finish on a healthy note. Other than that Jose Cruz Jr. Jersey , I really enjoyed my time there,” Eovaldi said. The right-hander visited with Yankees players during batting practice and said he still keeps in close contact with Betances and reliever Chasen Shreve.

Yankees: The 23-year-old Loaisiga, from Nicaragua, returned last year from Tommy John surgery. ”I think he’s really talented. I think he’s going to be a really good pitcher in this league,” Boone said. ”I think there’s just a presence about him.” Loaisiga was 3-1 with a 4.32 ERA in six starts at Trenton after going 3-0 with a 1.35 ERA at Class A Tampa this season, striking out 58 in 45 innings combined. ”Super excited. This is a great opportunity the Yankees are giving me,” he. Womens Marshall Newhouse Jersey , Womens Terrelle Pryor Sr. Jersey , Womens Roquan Smith Jersey , David Johnson Jersey ,

Orioles have dropped

Messagepar chenjian20 » Lun 30 Juil 2018, 08:27

MINNEAPOLIS — Kevin Gausman has been one of the few bright spots in an otherwise dismal season for the Baltimore Orioles Drew Butera Jersey , who bring the worst record in baseball to Target Field on Saturday as they continue a four-game series with the Minnesota Twins.

Gausman takes the mound with a 2.76 ERA in his last five outings and is fresh off perhaps one of his best starts of the year. He held the Los Angeles to one run and two hits and didn’t walk a batter in eight innings on July 2 for his first victory since May 11 — a span of nine starts — and is now 4-6 with a 4.05 ERA this season.

“I felt like early on in the season, I kind of put together a little bit better of a month, but I feel like I’m throwing the ball well,” Gausman said. “I feel really good in my delivery Authentic Baker Mayfield Jersey , and ever since I went hands over the head,

“I feel like this has just been night and day, able to command the ball and really all my off-speed pitches. That’s the key word — consistency. You’re always trying to be the same guy every five days.”

Orioles manager Buck Showalter thinks Gausman’s success this season is overlooked in part because of the team’s record, but also because of the competition he has faced.

“I don’t chuckle or eye-roll or any of that stuff Daniel Descalso Jersey ,” Showalter said. “When I hear people kind of negative, Kevin has cut his teeth in the American League East and he’s kind of a good hardened to it. This guy doesn’t dwell around too much on successes and failures.”

Success has been hard to come by for the Orioles lately and failure has been plentiful.

Baltimore’s loss Friday night in Minnesota extended its losing streak to four games. The Orioles have dropped 11 of their last 12 games and 22 of their last 27 overall while winning only two in their last seven series.

They’ll try to turn that around Saturday against Twins right-hander Kyle Gibson, who has been the poster child for lack of run support this season.

He has allowed more than three runs in a game just once since May 18 — a span of eight starts — but has taken the victory just twice. In the six other games, the Twins have averaged just 1.8 runs.

Gibson hasn’t let the tough luck get to him.

“We’ll start being on the right side of these games Jeff Mathis Jersey ,” Gibson said. “We’ve just been running into some pitchers throwing the ball well and caught a couple tough breaks offensively.”

His last two starts haven’t been among his best. He allowed a season-high five runs and 11 hits against the White Sox on June 27 in Chicago and the Milwaukee Brewers followed by tagging him for four (three earned) in five innings earlier this week in Milwaukee.

Saturday will mark Gibson’s ninth career start against the Orioles. In the eight previous meetings, he’s 3-2 with a 5.06 ERA.

He faced them once already this season, throwing six no-hit innings with six strikeouts on March 31 in Baltimore.

The leverage of free agency in his prime brought Kirk Cousins the market-setting contract with Minnesota.

Now the Vikings have their latest franchise quarterback to try to secure that elusive first Super Bowl victory with.

The Vikings wrapped up their welcome party with an $84 million Corey Kluber Jersey , three-year contract for Cousins on Thursday afternoon, banking big time on the late-blooming former Washington Redskins prospect to finally stabilize a critical position that’s been infamously problematic.

”The contract, it is what it is,” Cousins said. ”But what my wife and I are thrilled about is the organization we are walking into.”

The money for Cousins is fully guaranteed, the largest such figure in NFL history, at least until the next mega quarterback contract comes along, according to figures tracked by the pro sports financial website spotrac.com . His annual average of $28 million is also, for now, the biggest in the league, at least until the next mega quarterback contract comes along.

Team owners Zygi Wilf and Mark Wilf were willing to approve the investment James Paxton Jersey , hopeful that Cousins can be the keystone to a championship squad.

”If anybody in this city or this state has a question about their commitment, I think this contract shows that they’re all in,” Cousins said. ”It’s a tremendous amount of belief in me as a person and as a player, and I’m humbled and honored to get the OK on that.”

The guarantee of the full value of the deal is unprecedented in the NFL, where a variety of complex factors have kept players from receiving sure-thing contracts like their professional baseball, basketball and hockey peers.

His agent, Mike McCartney, began talking to Cousins about the potential for such a groundbreaking deal more than two years ago with the assumption he’d eventually arrive at free agency because of the noncommittal Redskins.

”There’s nothing I can pave unless people come after me,” Cousins said at his introductory news conference at the team’s sparkling and still-under construction suburban headquarters. ”I guess history will probably write that.”

Cousins will represent the fourth primary quarterback the Vikings have had in as many seasons. As long as he stays healthy throughout the summer, Cousins will also represent the eighth starting quarterback for a season opener in the past nine years.

Teddy Bridgewater Authentic Ronald Jones II Jersey , Sam Bradford and Case Keenum all became free agents this week and signed with other teams, so the Vikings didn’t have much of a backup plan if Cousins balked at their offer.

But as a team with a star-laden defense and plenty of dynamic skill-position players on offense that reached the NFC championship game last season, the Vikings also represented quite the destination for Cousins.

”I came here because of the chance to win,” he said. ”I felt like it was probably the best chance.”

Cousins started 57 games over his six seasons with Washington, which drafted him in the fourth round in 2012 behind second overall draft pick Robert Griffin III. RG3’s star faded quickly, though, and Cousins, who was lightly recruited out of Holland Christian High School before landing at Michigan State, worked his way up the depth chart. He topped 4,000 passing yards over each of the past three years.

The Redskins appeared in only one postseason game with Cousins at the helm Cheap Leighton Vander Esch Jersey , and his career record as a starter is just 26-30-1. Rarely does a rising quarterback reach free agency before turning 30, though, so after playing for about $20 million in 2016 and about $24 million in 2017 on consecutive franchise tags with Washington, Cousins reached his opportunity to truly cash in after the Redskins acquired Alex Smith in a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs.

”He bet on himself several times and won, and those things are really important to me,” coach Mike Zimmer said. ”He’s always played with a chip on his shoulder. We’re just really excited to have him.”

Realizing he was headed for the open market, Cousins began scouring the Twin Cities area while in town for promotional appearances the week of the Super Bowl. Just two days into his visit, the Smith deal went down. Upon phoning home to his wife, Julie, he gave a glowing scouting report of the region.

”This is a lifetime deal. That’s the goal Authentic Uchenna Nwosu Jersey ,” Cousins said. ”Yes, it’s a three-year deal, but the expectation from both sides is that we raise our kids here and if everything goes as planned, we’re here for a long time.”

The Vikings began the day $50 million under their salary cap , according to NFL Players Association data, and the deal with Cousins will take up almost half of that with the prospect of expensive extensions looming in the coming year for players such as linebackers Anthony Barr and Eric Kendricks and wide receiver Stefon Diggs.

They still have space to make more improvements this month, though and defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson was already at the new facility on Thursday for a visit. Richardson, a first-round pick by the New York Jets in the 2013 draft, was traded to the Seattle Seahawks prior to last season.

When Derrick Favors can find ways to impose his will Authentic Armani Watts Jersey , good things happen for the Utah Jazz.

Favors has been quietly, albeit effectively, getting it done against the Oklahoma City Thunder, playing in the shadows of Utah rookie of the year candidate Donovan Mitchell and Jazz center Rudy Gobert.

But a healthy Favors is making an impact.

The Jazz have returned to Utah with the series tied 1-1, thanks in no small part to Favors. He tallied career playoff highs of 20 points and 16 rebounds in Utah’s 102-95 road win on Wednesday.

Jazz coach Quin Snyder will start Favors at power forward alongside Gobert beginning with Game 3 on Saturday. But he will also utilize him as a backup center to spell Gobert. Favors has done his part to make playing alongside Gobert work by extending his shooting range to improve offensive spacing. He has also made himself an effective roller.

”He’s always been a good pick-and-roll player Marwin Gonzalez Jersey , regardless of `position,”’ Snyder said. ”We’ve never really thought of him as one position or the other. We’ve thought of him as a basketball player and tried to have him understand his strengths and then play to his strengths.”

Indeed. In the first two playoff games against the Thunder, Favors is averaging 13.5 points on 52 percent shooting and 10.5 rebounds.

It is exactly the type of impact Favors envisioned making when fighting to reclaim his body from knee and back injuries that afflicted him for the better part of two seasons.

”I’m back to being 100 percent,” Favors said. ”Back healthy. Back moving the way I know I can move and playing the way I know I can play. It’s a big advantage for us.”

There’s no question having Favors at full strength has improved Utah’s ability to counter a Thunder team featuring the potent trio of Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony and Paul George. The veteran forward/center offers versatility on both ends of the court honed through playing multiple positions as circumstances dictate.

Crashing the boards definitely tops the list when checking off Favors’ strengths. He ranks second on the Jazz roster in rebounding behind Gobert with 7.2 rebounds per game.

When Favors is active on the glass Kyle Barraclough Jersey , it can change the direction of a game for Utah. In Game 2 against Oklahoma City, he grabbed eight offensive rebounds through the first 2 1/2 quarters. By contrast, the Thunder totaled six offensive boards as a team in the same stretch.

”His length and his strength allow him to get his hands on balls,” Snyder said. ”He’s got such good hands that even when he keeps the ball alive, usually something good happens.”

Favors’ willingness to go full throttle around the basket has turned him into a reliable complimentary player on offense. He rolls to the basket with consistency and Ricky Vaughn Jersey , more often than not, it pays off for him.

It has turned Favors into a legitimate offensive presence again. He averaged 9.5 points on 48.7 percent shooting while limited to 50 games a year ago. This season, Favors is scoring 12.3 points per game while shooting 56.3 percent from the floor.

”Other teams and other opponents, they look and see I’m 6-foot-10 and think I’m a 5 man or whatever, so they try to take advantage of it Shane Greene Jersey ,” Favors said. ”It just feels good to be able to go out there and move the way that I know that I can move and be able to play the way I know that I can play and teams can’t take advantage of it.”

Favors is focused on staying aggressive as the series with the Thunder shifts to Utah. He is having fun playing basketball again and wants to make sure Oklahoma City continues to feel his presence on both ends of the court.

His teammates certainly do and they understand what a difference it can potentially make as the Jazz battle to keep going in the postseason.

”He’s been like that all year,” Mitchell said, ”but he’s definitely turned it up with what he can do.”
