Authentic Womens Basketball Cheap Chicago Bulls Jerseys China 2018

CHICAGO — Goran Dragic and the Miami Heat followed the lowest-scoring first quarter in team history with the highest-scoring one of the season to beat the Chicago Bulls.

After scoring seven points in the first quarter, Miami had 38 in the second to take a 45-42 lead en route to a 100-93 victory Sunday.

Dragic scored 24 points, Wayne Ellington had 19 points and five 3-pointers off the bench and the Heat’s four reserves outscored their five starters. James Johnson added 15 points, seven rebounds and six assists, and fellow reserves Tyler Johnson and Kelly Olynyk scored 10 points apiece as the Heat bench produced 54 points to extend the team’s winning streak to three.

Jerian Grant led Chicago with a career-high 24 points. Denzel Valentine had 14 points and career highs of 13 rebounds and seven assists.

“They (the bench) inspired the whole team,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “We were looking for some kind of energy, some kind of separation. We understand that it was going to be a 48-minute game and they played some inspiring basketball, not only in the fourth quarter but in that second quarter. That’s what really changed the momentum and brought us back into it.”

Ellington ignited the Heat after the 2-for-19 first-quarter from the field, scoring 10 points and hitting three 3-pointers as Miami shot 68.4 percent in the second quarter.

The Heat started slow again in the third quarter, prompting Spoelstra to leave his second- and third-leading scorers, Dion Waiters (four points) and Hassan Whiteside (11 points, nine rebounds), on the bench down the stretch as the Heat pulled away after Chicago cut Miami’s lead to 83-81 with five minutes, 40 seconds to play.

“I don’t think we look at it like Dion or Whiteside or Dragic,” James Johnson said. “We have a lot of weapons on this team. We have a lot of guys who could do it. We’re all trying to play our roles and master that.”

Justin Holliday added 15 points for the Bulls, who lost their fifth in a row following an 0-4 West Coast trip.

TIP-INS

Heat: Whiteside (knee) was in the starting lineup after missing Saturday’s practice to receive treatment. … F James Johnson had at least five rebounds and five assists in a game for the fifth time this season. … Miami (10-9) exceeded the .500 mark for the first time since winning two of three to open the season.

Bulls: Chicago coach Fred Hoiberg said he’s “hoping” G David Nwaba will return to practice on Monday. Nwaba (sprained right ankle) missed his ninth consecutive game. … The home game was just Chicago’s seventh of the season, tied with Toronto for fewest in the NBA. … Grant scored 62 points in Chicago’s past three games. His single-game high was 13 prior to this stretch.

FROSTY FIRST QUARTER
The Heat shot 2-of-19 from the field in the first quarter but only trailed 13-7 because the Bulls managed to make just 4-of-24 shots, including 1-for-15 inside the 3-point arc.

The 20 combined points were the fewest in any quarter in Bulls history.

DESIGNATED SHOOTER

Ellington continued his hot 3-point shooting, going 5-of-8 behind the arc.

The veteran reserve made multiple 3-pointers in each of the Heat’s past four games, going 20-for-35 in that stretch, and at least one in 11 straight. Ellington is shooting 44.2 percent for the season.

Heat: At Cleveland on Tuesday night.

Bulls: Host Phoenix on Tuesday night.

Wholesale MLB Authentic New York Yankees Aaron Judge Jerseys China 2018

The countdown to Spring Training started as soon as the Astros prevailed in Game 7 of the World Series in Dodger Stadium, giving them their first title in franchise history.

• Complete Spring Training schedule
Naturally, it didn’t take long for baseball fans to put a great 2017 season to bed and start thinking about those glorious, sunny days next February, when our game comes back into focus with the clarity of a crack of the bat, and we hear those four magical words — pitchers and catchers report — once again.
It officially became time to look forward to 2018 when MLB announced its exhibition schedule on Monday.
The first exhibition game is on Wednesday, Feb. 21, when the D-backs host Arizona State University at Salt River Fields in Scottsdale, Ariz. Grapefruit and Cactus League play officially begins on Feb. 23, with the next day featuring the first full slate including all 30 MLB teams. The World Series champs will start their home schedule at The Ballpark of the Palm Beaches vs. the club with which they share the one-year-old facility, the Nationals.
While it’s a bit early to see how the 30 rosters in the American and National Leagues might be rearranged over the coming Hot Stove months, with the Winter Meetings set for early next month and more than 100 free agents on the board and waiting to negotiate, the teams we just saw in October will be gearing up and ready to go.
The NL champion Dodgers get right back into action that same Friday with a game at their spring home of Camelback Ranch by hosting their facility neighbors, the White Sox.
The team that took the Astros to seven games in the AL Championship Series, the Yankees, are sure to attract crowds at their ballpark, George M. Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, Fla., for their opener on Feb. 23 against the Tigers. The Yankees are hoping for big things once again from their big No. 99, outfielder Aaron Judge, who was the unanimous choice for the AL Rookie of the Year Award and finished second in AL MVP Award voting to Houston’s Jose Altuve.
Also on that day, fans will get to watch the D-backs, who will take the field vs. the Rockies, whom they defeated in the NL Wild Card Game, and with whom they happen to share the spectacular Salt River Fields in Scottsdale, Ariz.
Other postseason teams from 2017 making their spring debuts on Feb. 23 include the Twins and Red Sox, who play each other in Fort Myers, Fla., the Cubs, who start things off in Maryvale Baseball Park in Phoenix against the Milwaukee Brewers, and the Indians, who play the Reds in their shared home park in Goodyear, Ariz.
The rest of the day’s full big-league slate includes the following matchups: Cardinals vs. Marlins, Rays split squad vs. Orioles, Pittsburgh vs. Rays split squad, Phillies vs. Blue Jays, Braves vs. Mets, Angels vs. A’s, Brewers vs. Giants, and Mariners vs. Padres.
That huge day will carry over into the next month of nonstop action in the warmth of the new season.
And in addition to the regular Spring Training games we’re accustomed to seeing, there will be games scheduled for venues outside the realms of traditional Cactus and Grapefruit League play.
Split squads of the Indians and Cubs will play two games on March 17-18 in Las Vegas, while select exhibition games at Major League and Minor League ballparks will be played from March 24-27, including two games between the Blue Jays and Cardinals in Montreal.
As always, select games will be available on MLB.TV as the spring schedule closes in on the regular season, which begins for all 30 teams on Opening Day on Thursday, March 29. That start date is the earliest in Major League history, and it will be the first time since 1968 that every team will play its first regular-season game on the same day.

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 NHL St. Louis Blues Womens Jerseys 2017

The ESPN Player Rater does a phenomenal job of showing us how pure statistics relate to fantasy value. There’s no interpretation of the data and no external biases toward the ratings, just pure numbers. This plays out nicely among skaters, as the standard categories don’t include any ratio-bound statistics.

However, there are some struggles with the purity of goaltenders’ ratings because two of the three categories in the calculation are ratios. Therefore, the Player Rater doesn’t account for the fact that Goaltender A has started 10 games and Goaltender B has started one game when it sees the same save percentage and goals-against average. Clearly, fantasy owners know that Goaltender A has much more value in fantasy due to his playing time.

With that in mind, let’s rank goaltenders by tier based purely on the statistics they’ve accumulated so far this season. This is not based on prognostications for their going-forward success. Instead, they will be grouped strictly by the season-to-date numbers they’ve put up in wins, save percentage and GAA. We are also leaving out goaltenders who are ranked high on the Player Rater, but are clearly not their team’s No. 1 — goalies such as St. Louis Blues No. 2 Carter Hutton — or are injured.

Tier 1: Elite options

Jonathan Quick, Andrei Vasilevskiy, Corey Crawford, Connor Hellebuyck, Sergei Bobrovsky and Mike Smith have separated themselves as the top pack through the first month of action. Hellebuyck and Smith are the surprises here. Smith was a major sleeper coming into the season because of a much better situation with the Calgary Flames than his previous posting in the desert with the Arizona Coyotes. It’s a surprise to see him among the top six, but not a complete shock. Hellebuyck, on the other hand, wasn’t even the No. 1 goaltender for the Jets coming into the season and was projected to, at best, work his way into a time-share with Steve Mason. However, Mason fell on his face hard out of the gate, and Hellebuyck hasn’t looked back. One of the biggest candidates for a dip here is Quick, who boasts a .944 save percentage on the penalty kill (four power-play goals against in 67 opportunities). Compare that to his cumulative penalty kill save percentage since the 2015-16 season of .883 and you’ll see some regression potential.

Tier 2: On the cusp

Jake Allen, Martin Jones and Pekka Rinne are far enough back in value from the top group to form their own section on the Player Rater. It’s not a shock to see any of them here, and their value is arguably precisely in line with what owners expected right from the draft table.

Tier 3: Remaining No. 1s

Jimmy Howard, Cory Schneider and Braden Holtby round out the top 12, completing the list of No. 1 fantasy goaltenders for a 12-team league. Howard and Schneider appear to have bounced back into form behind stronger-than-expected teams in front of them. Their underlying numbers look solid, so it may come down to whether they continue to get support in the wins column. It’s also of note that there isn’t anything particular in Holtby’s profile that suggests he has been getting unlucky in any particular category. He’s still a No. 1 fantasy goaltender, but it may take others regressing for him to get closer to his draft-day value.

Tier 4: Best of the No. 2s

Ben Bishop, Matt Murray, John Gibson and Jacob Markstrom form the first grouping of No. 2 goaltenders (ranked 13-16 in value on the Player Rater). Owners were expecting No. 1 value from Murray and Gibson and perhaps even Bishop at the draft table. Gibson should be cut some slack given the array of injuries that the Anaheim Ducks have faced so far. Murray, on the other hand, doesn’t have a lot of excuses here. His even-strength save percentage sits at .904, 23rd in the league among goaltenders with at least six starts. Markstrom has been a pleasant surprise, and if you can afford the lack of wins, he could finish as a No. 2 goaltender based on his early-season ratios.

Tier 5: Still generating positive value

Semyon Varlamov, Jaroslav Halak, Frederik Andersen and Craig Anderson are the last grouping of workhorse starters who are above a zero rating on the Player Rater. We’re at a point here where you are picking your poison for the categories, as these goaltenders can help a little in some spots but will hurt you in others. Andersen is great for wins, but his ratios are atrocious. Halak has a solid enough goals-against average and kicks in wins, but his save percentage is ugly. Varlamov is the reciprocal to Halak, helping in save percentage, but hurting in GAA. As for Ottawa’s Anderson, his even-strength save percentage is a very ugly .898 and has actually been worse since Nov. 17 when Erik Karlsson returned. Mike Condon may be a factor at some point this season.

Tier 6: Filling out the roster

Devan Dubnyk, Henrik Lundqvist, Tuukka Rask and Robin Lehner are earning negative value on the Player Rater, but they represent the final No. 2 goaltenders for a 12-team league (ranked 21-24). Dubnyk has been getting murdered on the penalty kill, where opponents have six goals on only 31 shots. Perhaps getting Mikael Granlund, one of their key penalty killers, back to health will help going forward. Rask is only down here because he missed time for injury. Expect him to move up the list. Lehner is also being hurt by the penalty kill and could be in for better numbers if the Sabres can tighten up on defense. He has also been burned by three shorthanded goals while his team was on the man advantage.

Missed out: Marc-Andre Fleury still has no timetable for a return, but would slot in the list somewhere as a No. 1 goaltender if he had stayed healthy to this point. On a pure numbers standpoint, he’s currently grouped in with Tier 5. … The penalty kill is hurting both Cam Talbot and Brian Elliott. They’ve allowed nine and eight power-play goals, respectively. Their even-strength numbers are passable, so it will come down to whether their teams can fix the penalty-kill units. … Scott Darling is not jumping off the page to separate himself from Cam Ward. This could be a time-share soon. … I have no idea what to say to Carey Price owners. His even-strength save percentage is an unbelievable .877, tied with Antti Raanta for the worst in the league among goaltenders with at least four appearances. It’s not even like he’s being bombarded. Among the goaltenders with at least 11 appearances, Price has faced the fewest shots at even strength. Bench him and wait it out, I guess?

Fantasy Forecaster: Nov. 6-12

NHL action ramps up a bit this week, with nine teams posting a four-game schedule. Remember that the more teams that enjoy an extra game, the more the fantasy advantage of rostering players from those teams is undercut.

The Boston Bruins, New Jersey Devils, Toronto Maple Leafs and Minnesota Wild have the juiciest of the four-game schedules on the Forecaster, with the Arizona Coyotes, Columbus Blue Jackets, Edmonton Oilers, Vancouver Canucks and Washington Capitals filling out the list of teams with an extra game.

The Calgary Flames, Colorado Avalanche, Dallas Stars, Nashville Predators, Ottawa Senators and Philadelphia Flyers only have two games. Colorado and Ottawa only play each other next week, and the games are back-to-back. Varlamov and Anderson owners have been warned.

Note: For those new to the forecaster chart, here are some explanations: “O” (offense) and “D” (defense) matchup ratings are based upon a scale from 1 (poor matchup) to 10 (excellent matchup) and are calculated using a formula that evaluates the team’s season-to-date statistics, their performance in home/road games depending on where the game is to be played, as well as their opponents’ numbers in those categories. The “Ratings” column lists the cumulative rating from 1-10 of that week’s offensive (“O”) and defensive (“D”) matchups.

In the notes — team, goalie and player — below, the focus every week will be mainly on players who are available for potential use. Rostering below 50 percent of ESPN leagues is a good generalized cutoff, and I’ll try to include players below 10 percent whenever possible to cater to deeper formats.

Team notes
Boston Bruins

After placing goaltenders into tiers above, it’s easy to figure out why the Bruins are rated well for a four-game schedule that includes the Wild, New York Rangers and two dates with the Maple Leafs. Unfortunately, injuries are making it difficult to go beyond the top line for the Bruins with any confidence. One name to consider would be Danton Heinen, who is playing on the second line and getting time on the power play with the top line. For what it’s worth, he has six points in seven games with very limited ice time.
New Jersey Devils

The Devils’ offense has two tougher matchups with the Blues and Chicago Blackhawks bookending some easier matchups with the Leafs and Florida Panthers next week. With Kyle Palmieri now on injured reserve and no clear return date set, Drew Stafford should continue seeing top looks with Nico Hischier and Taylor Hall through next week. He has five points in seven games since ascending the depth chart.
Toronto Maple Leafs

Like the Bruins, the Leafs boast a positive four-game schedule that includes a date with Minnesota, in addition to a game against the fourth-string goaltender for the Vegas Golden Knights and the back-to-back set against Boston. Connor Brown is where I’m looking for value, as the often-overshadowed sophomore winger is drawing in next to Patrick Marleau and James van Riemsdyk and has scored goals in two straight games.

Goalie notes

Jacob Markstrom, G, Vancouver Canucks (rostered in 19.1 percent of ESPN leagues)

Markstrom probably won’t get all four starts for the Canucks next week, as backup Anders Nilsson has been equally as strong in the crease. That said, the games look good on the Forecaster for defensive ratings, and Markstrom has allowed two or fewer goals in five consecutive outings.

Robin Lehner, G, Buffalo Sabres (25.6 percent)

I keep coming back to Lehner in this space because, at least on paper, his numbers should be better. Three shorthanded goals against (which should not be an ongoing problem for any goaltender and has more to do with bad luck) have taken his decent ratios and made them look bad. Just for fun, when you remove the shorties against him, his goals-against average stands at 2.55 and his save percentage bumps to .918. Sounds a lot better than his current 2.94 GAA and .905 save percentage, right? I know that’s cherry picking stats, but Lehner’s even-strength save percentage is 13th-best in the NHL right now among starters.

Other notes: Raanta is back between the pipes for the Coyotes and should have stretches of value this season, but this is not a good week to consider him. The Coyotes play the Capitals, Pittsburgh Penguins, Blues and Winnipeg Jets. … Double-check you aren’t among the 34.8 percent of ESPN leagues in which Hellebuyck is still available. Seriously. Stop reading, open up another tab and go check if you can pick him up. … For the truly deep-league player who just needs a warm body: the Blue Jackets play two separate sets of back-to-back games next week. If Joonas Korpisalo is ever going to have a two-start week, it’s next week. … James Reimer has been a train wreck during his chance to steal more starts from Roberto Luongo. Luongo could be back in time for next week. You don’t want either. The Panthers are the worst road team in the league, and they play all three games away from Florida.

Player notes

Anders Lee, C/LW, and Josh Bailey, LW/RW, New York Islanders (rostered in 77.8 percent and 52.0 percent of ESPN leagues)

It brings a small tear to my eye for Jordan Eberle, but in the past three games since he was moved off the top line for Bailey, the trio of Bailey, Lee and John Tavares has gone bonkers. They have 20 points in the past three games combined. Get them into lineups.
Josh Anderson, LW/RW, Columbus Blue Jackets (9.5 percent)

I promise this is the last time. I will shut up about Anderson after this. His current hot streak on a line with Artemi Panarin and Nick Foligno started before Cam Atkinson was out of the lineup. That’s a good indication that it will continue after Atkinson returns, since Atkinson was playing with Brandon Dubinsky and Boone Jenner before getting hurt. Anderson moved to the top line partway through a game against the Buffalo Sabres on Oct. 25. He has five points in five games since then.

To the bench: Still lacking Ryan Getzlaf and with dates to face Quick and Andrei Vasilevskiy next week, it’s probably OK not to go any deeper than you have to with your Anaheim players. … The Flames play both of their games next week prior to Thursday. If your league has midweek waivers, stack some Flames at the start and ditch them for other reinforcements next weekend. I’m looking at Micheal Ferland, in particular.
