Authentic Cheap NBA Nike Sacramento Kings Womens Jerseys China 2018

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — After preaching patience most of the season, Vince Carter is seeing signs of growth from his young Sacramento teammates.

It certainly helps when the 40-year-old eight-time All-Star can be a part of things, too.

Carter scored 10 of his 12 points in the fourth quarter and the Kings held off the Denver Nuggets 106-98 on Saturday night.

De’Aaron Fox had 18 points and seven assists, Willie Cauley-Stein added 17 points and Buddy Hield had 14.

“We have a lot of talent around here, it’s just patience,” Carter said. “They have to learn how to play this game and have to go through all the different scenarios that you could possibly face in an NBA game, and you won’t see that until the second part of the season.

“Everybody wants to see that growth, they want to see it now, and it doesn’t happen that way.”

Sacramento was up 13 early in the fourth, but Denver rallied and Trey Lyles’ layup pulled the Nuggets to 92-89 with 5:22 remaining.

Cauley-Stein made back-to-back layups for the Kings and, after Will Barton made a 3-pointer for the Nuggets, Hield made a short jumper and Coleman hit a 3-pointer to help Sacramento pull away.

The Kings had dropped four straight, including both matchups this season.

“We’re not a finished product but it’s a step in the right direction,” Sacramento coach Dave Joerger said.

Lyles led Denver with 19 points, Jamal Murray added 18, and Will Barton and Gary Harris had 17 apiece.

The loss capped a frustrating night for Denver, which was playing the second half of a back-to-back. The Nuggets committed a season-high 26 turnovers, missed four consecutive free throws down the stretch and coach Mike Malone — who previously coached in Sacramento — was hit with a technical foul. Sacramento capitalized on almost every mistake Denver made and scored 40 points off turnovers.

That wasn’t the type of performance Malone was looking for two days before playing the Golden State Warriors.

“Bottom line is you gave a team that had three days off life by giving them 40 points off of your mistakes,” Malone said. “If you do that in a couple nights in Oakland, you’ll get beat by 50.”

The Nuggets erased most of an early 12-point deficit but fell apart after going scoreless for 5 1/2 minutes while missing their first nine shots in the second. Denver’s frustrations boiled over when Malone, who spent one-plus seasons coaching in Sacramento, picked up a technical foul.

Things didn’t get much better in the third. The Nuggets, who had 15 turnovers in the first half, made another to open the second half when Cauley-Stein intercepted the inbounds pass at midcourt and drove in for a dunk.

KINGS FIRE SCOUTING DIRECTOR

The Kings fired scouting director and former assistant general manager Mike Bratz, who was previously an assistant coach in Sacramento under Rick Adelman and Eddie Jordan. “We agreed to part ways and appreciate all of his contributions to the Kings,” the team said in a statement. “We wish him nothing but the best.”

STEALING THE SPOTLIGHT
Cauley-Stein led the Kings’ defensive charge with a career-best seven steals that also matches the most in the NBA this season. Overall Sacramento had 16 steals. “Just being ready and active, being in the right spots on defense,” Cauley-Stein said. “That’ll happen. It’s big. It feels good.”

TIP-INS

Nuggets: Denver shot 46.1 percent, slightly better than Sacramento, but never led. Barton didn’t score until 1:28 remained in the third. . Kenneth Faried sat out his fourth consecutive game because of coach’s decision.

Kings: Carter had a season-high eight rebounds. . It’s the first time this season Sacramento has led the entire game. . Center Zach Randolph (oral surgery) and guard George Hill (personal reasons) did not play.

Cheap Authentic NBA Denver Nuggets Jerseys China 2017

OAKLAND, Calif. — Warriors coach Steve Kerr didn’t see much passion from his team Saturday.

Golden State better find some fast for Christmas Day, when LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers come to town for a prime-time holiday rematch of the past three NBA Finals.

Gary Harris scored 19 points to lead a balanced Denver offense and the Nuggets stopped the Warriors’ 11-game winning streak with a second impressive road victory in two nights, beating Golden State 96-81.

“It didn’t feel like we were into it emotionally tonight. Sometimes after a long winning streak, whatever reason, you let your guard down a little bit. It wasn’t there,” Kerr said. “The biggest concern for me tonight, I didn’t see a lot of joy. … We weren’t having much fun.”

Nikola Jokic added 18 points and nine rebounds and Jamal Murray had 14 points, six rebounds and five assists for the Nuggets after their Friday win at Portland. They held the defending NBA champions to a season low for points.

Kevin Durant had 18 points and six rebounds in a particularly poor shooting performance for the typically efficient NBA Finals MVP. He was 6 for 17 and missed all five of his 3-point attempts as the Warriors shot 38.6 percent.

Draymond Green had 10 points, six assists and five rebounds in his second game back after missing five of six with soreness in his right shoulder. He took a sharp elbow to the face from Jokic with 7:27 remaining and went down hard, then was getting X-rays on his left elbow afterward.

Klay Thompson scored 15 for the Warriors but was 6 for 21 overall and 1 of 10 on 3s as Golden State went just 3 for 27 from deep. A night after posting his first career double-double with season bests of 20 points and 10 rebounds, Warriors rookie Jordan Bell contributed seven points and 10 rebounds.

Patrick McCaw’s floater with 7:13 to go pulled Golden State to 82-71, but the Warriors couldn’t do much more to fight back.

“I can’t remember seeing many teams hold that team to 3 of 27 from the 3-point line,” Denver coach Michael Malone said. “So it’s a hell of a win for us and it’s going to make Christmas obviously that much merrier.”

The Warriors were sloppy, lacked a flow on offense, looked a step behind most of the night and never got rolling trying to play catch-up much of the evening. Fans headed for the exits with a few minutes left, a rare sight at Oracle Arena.

“When you’re missing shots, you don’t let it affect your defense, but this is a feel-good game,” Durant said. “You want to make shots, that’s what gets us going, that’s what gets the crowd going.”

Golden State has regularly relied on big third quarters this season, and Saturday it couldn’t even muster a strong fourth after going into the final period down 73-62.

It was also the second night of a back-to-back for the Warriors, who beat the Lakers at home on Friday. They fell behind 53-41 at the break Saturday.

Harris had his second strong game after missing one with a bruised elbow.

The Nuggets had lost five straight on Golden State’s home floor dating to a 100-99 win at Oracle on April 10, 2014.

It was an especially slow start for Golden State, which began 6 for 18 — with Durant going 1 for 5 and Thompson missing his initial four shots as the Warriors shot 7 for 21 in the opening quarter.

CURRY UPDATE

Stephen Curry did extensive on-court work during pregame warmups and appeared to be moving well on his sprained right ankle, though the two-time MVP isn’t going to play Monday.

“If we weren’t playing Cleveland on Christmas and I told you Steph hasn’t even played in a 3-on-3 game, hasn’t had any contact at all and the game was 48 hours from now, you would say that `Steph’s not going to play,’ but because it’s the magnitude of the game and everybody wants to know, but we can’t let that affect our judgment,” Kerr said. “He can’t play. It would be completely irresponsible if he did.”

Curry has missed seven straight games.

TIP-INS

Nuggets: Denver capitalized on the Warriors’ mistakes, turning 19 turnovers into 21 points. … Trey Lyles had 15 points and six boards off the bench.
Warriors: Golden State’s 88 points in a 92-88 loss at Boston on Nov. 16 was its previous season low. … C Zaza Pachulia went through what he called a tough workout Saturday morning to test the soreness below his left shoulder and remained hopeful of playing Monday. “We’ll see,” Pachulia said. “I’m going to have another great workout tomorrow.” He missed his seventh consecutive game and eighth in nine. … Shaun Livingston sat out his fourth straight game with a sore right knee but got in a solid pregame workout and looked strong running. … Kerr stuck with his winning starting five from Friday after Golden State used eight different starting lineups over the previous nine games.

Cheap Basketball New York Knicks Elite Courtney Lee Jerseys 2017

NEW YORK — Courtney Lee and other New York Knicks veterans learned long ago that rookie Frank Ntilikina isn’t easy to intimidate.

“Frank’s a competitor,” Lee said late Monday night. “In practice, he’s going at everybody.”

The rest of the basketball world learned the same about Ntilikina on Monday night when he shoved LeBron James a few times late in the first quarter of the Knicks’ game versus the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Ntilikina insisted afterward that he would’ve pushed any player that was preventing him from inbounding the ball, as James was.

But other Knicks knew that James’ recent comments about the club passing over Dennis Smith Jr. got under Ntilikina’s skin. So, yes, Ntilikina was likely sending a message when he shoved the four-time MVP.

“For somebody to go in the media and say something about him — or say it wasn’t about him — I mean, he took it personal. And that’s what all competitors do,” Lee said. “So, he was fired up and ready to play.”

Ntilikina’s decision to push James ignited his teammates — and the Madison Square Garden crowd — in what turned out to be a disappointing 104-101 Knicks loss.

Enes Kanter, who had his own public back-and-forth with James, came to Ntilikina’s defense quickly, going face-to-face with the three-time NBA champ.

The play resulted in a double technical and may have revealed something important about this young Knicks team: They play for each other and aren’t easily intimidated.

“It showed the chemistry of the team, our thinking. We’ll fight together in all our games,” Ntilikina said. “It was good to have them right here and they know I’ll be here for them. That’s just how we are.”

Ntilikina also showed again on Monday why the Knicks aren’t jumping to any LeBron-like conclusions about their decision to draft him over Smith. Ntilikina had six steals against Cleveland — the largest single-game steals total for a Knicks rookie since 1987 when Mark Jackson had seven.

The Knicks, as James pointed out earlier in the day, have been searching for a point guard and a perimeter defender for some time. While it’s still early, Ntilikina is providing evidence that New York may have found both when they drafted him.

He hounds opposing ball-handlers and is comfortable running the Knicks’ offense. He’s also played well thus far with Kristaps Porzingis.
Entering play on Monday, Ntilikina and Porzingis had the best net efficiency of any two-player combination that had played at least 50 minutes (plus-47). They’d shared the court for just 60 minutes together, so it’s too early to draw any strong conclusions. But the number shows why the Knicks are enthused about their young core.

“We can build something great here and I’m sure we’re going to,” Ntilikina said.

The Knicks failed to be great during important stretches on Monday night. They couldn’t protect a 23-point lead at home against Cleveland — an unforgivable sin for a quality NBA team. They stumbled in the fourth quarter, letting James and the Cavs score 43 points and steal a game they should have lost. Many Knicks said afterward that there were plenty of valuable lessons to be learned from this game.

One of them, of course, was clear: They have a rookie point guard who isn’t going to back down from anyone.

Cheap Basketball Hornets Elite Nicolas Batum Jerseys 2017

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Hornets swingman Nicolas Batum will miss a minimum of six to eight weeks with a left elbow injury.
The team announced that an MRI on Thursday revealed the nine-year NBA veteran tore his ulnar collateral ligament in his non-dominant arm in the first quarter of Charlotte’s preseason road contest against the Pistons on Wednesday.
The Hornets have not decided if Batum will need surgery or will attempt to rehab the injury.
Batum, who signed a five-year, $120 million contract in 2016, was expected to start for Charlotte. Batum’s injury means Jeremy Lamb could be thrust into a starting role to open the regular season.
Batum last year became the first Charlotte player to score more than 1,000 points, grab 450 rebounds and hand out over 450 assists in a season.

Cheap Authentic NBA Cavaliers LeBron James Jersey

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio — No team in NBA history — not Michael Jordan’s Bulls, not Bill Russell’s Celtics, not Jerry West’s Lakers — has won more regular-season games over a three-year span than the 207 games the Golden State Warriors have won since the start of the 2014-15 regular season.

The Warriors have a star-studded roster led by two former league MVPs in Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant and a team that enters Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday having lost only once since March 11.

LeBron James was asked Sunday to compare the threat the Warriors present to all the other challenges he has faced in his career.

Love: Cavs’ underdog label ‘funny to me’
Kevin Love took exception to the idea that the Cavaliers are heavy underdogs against the Warriors in the NBA Finals, noting that Cleveland enters the series as the defending champion.
A deep analytics dive into the Warriors-Cavaliers rematch
They’re a combined 24-1 in the playoffs. Their rosters include 11 players who have appeared in an All-Star Game. They’ve been on a collision course to a third straight NBA Finals. Who has the edge, the Warriors or Cavaliers? Let’s look at the numbers.

ESPN Forecast: Who will win Finals MVP?
Which star will shine brightest on the biggest stage this June? Our expert panel makes its prediction for 2017 Finals MVP.
“It’s probably up there,” James said after the Cleveland Cavaliers’ practice. “I mean, it’s up there. Obviously, I’ve played against four Hall of Famers as well too, with Manu [Ginobili], Kawhi [Leonard], Tony [Parker] and Timmy D [Tim Duncan] on the same team. And if you add Pop [Gregg Popovich] in there, that’s five Hall of Famers.

“So it’s going to be very challenging. Those guys are going to challenge me. They’re going to challenge our ballclub. This is a high-powered team, and I’ve played against some other [stiff competition]. I’ve played against Ray [Allen], KG [Kevin Garnett], Paul [Pierce], [Rajon] Rondo and Doc [Rivers]. So it’s going to be very challenging not only on me mentally, but on our ballclub and on our franchise.”

Curry and Durant are surefire Hall of Famers. Draymond Green and Klay Thompson could be on their way to Springfield, Massachusetts, too, depending on how the rest of their careers play out.

Yet the fact that James is preparing for such a formidable foe in the Finals has become old hat for him. Six of the eight times James’ teams have reached the Finals, they have been the underdog, including this year. The only time a James team was the favorite in the Finals and lost was 2011, his first year with the Miami Heat, to the Dallas Mavericks.

“I only play blackjack in Vegas anyway, so it doesn’t matter,” James said of the sportsbooks doubting the Cavs’ chances.

For the record, James feels quite confident about evening his career Finals record to 4-4 with a win over Golden State.

“I feel good about our chances,” James said. “Very good.”

Does the thought of seeing another season extend all the way until June only to end in a loss deter him?

“I think it’s just the joy of being able to compete for a championship,” James said. “If you add more pressure to it, I don’t believe in it.”

James does believe that these Finals, his seventh straight trip to the championship round, will have people appreciating his career no matter what the outcome.

“I think it’s going to be great for my legacy, once I’m done playing the game and can look back on the game and say, ‘Oh, this guy went to three straight Finals, four straight Finals, five, six whatever,’” James said. “I think it’s great to be talked about, see what I was able to accomplish as an individual.

“When you talk about longevity and being able to just play at a high level for a long period of time, and I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to do that and be a part of two franchises that … being able to take two franchises to four Finals apiece … no one has ever done that either, so I’m always happy and proud. … I’ve always been proud to be part of the biggest stage in our league, and it’s the Finals.”

And this Finals, the first time in league history that the same two teams are clashing three years in a row with a title on the line, might be the most anticipated of James’ career.
“First of all, I don’t get involved in the hype,” James said. “But I do know that both teams are better than last year’s teams. We’re a better Cavaliers team, and they’re a better Warriors team. What does that mean? We don’t know yet. But we’re both better. We both added pieces that have helped our offensive package and defensive package be even more scary, and obviously you can see that. We’re both playing at a high level, and we’re both … when you look back on it at the end of the day, you’ll look back and say that was two great teams who competed for championships and we did whatever it took to get to that point.

“So I don’t know what the outcome is going to be, but we’re going to write about it and talk about it during the series and see what happens. But I’m honored and I’m happy and I’m extremely excited to be part of the Finals again.”
