Cleveland trailed by double digits early, but outscored Memphis 58-40 in the second half, sending the Grizzlies to their eighth straight loss.

While Baker Mayfield tries to prove to NFL scouts his arm and accuracy Daniel Murphy Authentic Jersey are big enough assets to allay concerns about his size, he also will try to shed the next Johnny Manziel label. While Lamar Jackson tries prove to NFL scouts his speed and quickness are big enough assets to allay concerns about his pocket passing, he also will try to shed the just another athlete label.

Welcome to the silly season leading up to the 2018 NFL Draft. While Josh Allen, Josh Rosen and Sam Darnold have plenty of their own flaws among the top quarterback prospects in this year’s class, there’s no doubt none of them will face the same scrutiny as Mayfield and Jackson.

Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said the difference was a change in defensive intensity after Cleveland’s early struggles gave the Grizzlies a lead that reached 13 in the first quarter.

During timeouts, I was telling the guys — especially at halftime — `I don’t know how we’re up, but we’re up after playing a bad half of basketball, Lue said, adding that the second half was much better defensively.

Russell Shepard Limited Jersey James was already under triple-double watch at halftime with 10 points, eight rebounds and seven assists. Hill already had 13 points as the Cavaliers carried a 54-49 lead into the break.

Cavaliers: Clarkson was cut under his right eye in the second quarter, but returned in the fourth. He said it took eight or nine stitches to close the wound. … James has played in all 58 Cleveland games this season … Played their only road game out of the first seven following the All-Star break. … Have won four straight road games.

Anze Kopitar picked up an assist on Brown’s goal, giving him his 800th NHL point in his 900th career game.

Patrik Laine scored on the power play with 49 seconds left to trim the deficit for Winnipeg, which had won three in a row. Blake Wheeler and Dustin Byfuglien had the other Jets goals, and Laine added an assist.

Scouting Basketball Without Borders: Long-term draft prospects

The Cardinals don’t have any big-ticket players they need to re-sign, but they could be in play for a high-priced wide receiver or cornerback. A back-loaded deal with Cousins would give them flexibility to be aggressive in free agency.

As long as the Cardinals can get through 2018 with a manageable cap number, they’ll be in the clear. They’ll have about $90 million available starting in Authentic Jordan Willis Jersey 2019, giving them ample space with which to work. In this proposed offer, Cousins’ first year with the Cardinals would net him $45 million, which includes a $15 million roster bonus. He’d earn $20 million in base salaries the next two seasons with $12.5 million in roster bonuses available each season, which would very likely be earned. The only year that wouldn’t come with a guaranteed salary would be the fifth season.

SCP Auctions president David Kohler told ESPN that he had privately informed some of his best customers that the stick was available. The timing of the Olympics and the anniversary led one of his clients to express his interest and commit to buying it, he said.

Game Womens Alex Stalock Jersey The seller of the stick bought it five years ago from Heritage Auctions, which sold the stick consigned by Eruzione himself, for $262,900, well beyond its original estimate of $50,000.

The stick has the original grip tape at the handle and the blade and Eruzione’s name on both sides of the shaft. On the stick, Eruzione wrote February 22 1980 USA 4 Russia 3 and Winning Goal Stick Against Russia. Eruzione also signed the stick with the inscription 1980 Gold.

NFL execs pick between Jameis Winston, Marcus Mariota

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tennessee Titans had their problems, which is why both teams made their selections so early in the 2015 NFL draft.

The quarterbacks they picked 1-2 that year Neville Hewitt Jersey — Jameis Winston to the Bucs, Marcus Mariota to the Titans — had the potential to change the trajectories of their franchises. Do they still? Did they ever? Which one would NFL talent evaluators prefer now, with three years’ hindsight?

Sure, not everyone who grew up in Wisconsin played hockey. But J.J. Watt did, and if we had to tag one NFL player in on the U.S. men’s hockey team, it would be him. Watt told The MMQB’s Peter King that he only gave it up because of the cost.

Joining Watt would be Super Bowl 52 champion Beau Allen, a defensive tackle with the Eagles. Allen grew up in Minnesota. According to his college defensive coordinator, Greg Clough, Allen played more youth hockey than football when he was growing up.

He was like 6’2, 245, and you should have seen him, Clough said, via’s Frank Fitzpatrick. He’d skate down the middle and people would just clear the hell out.

Shazier, 25, underwent spinal stabilization surgery Dec. 6 after a tackling attempt on Monday Night Football in Cincinnati left him clutching his lower back. He was rushed to a local hospital and eventually transported to University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

Shazier has used a wheelchair but is making progress in his rehab and was cleared for outpatient care on Feb. 1.

The way Shazier sees it, all of his football goals are still in front of him. He’s still annoyed about the All-Pro snub.

Ronnie Lott Youth Jersey I really feel I’m the best linebacker ever, Shazier said. I just have to be back out there so everybody can see it. You know what I’m saying?

The NBA made the first substantive change to the Three-Point Contest in 2014 when they added the moneyball rack. In the past, shooters shot five balls at five stations around the arc, with the last ball counting for two points. Now, one entire rack consists of double-point moneyballs 鈥?and it’s at the shooter’s choosing.

Panthers interim general manager Marty Hurney has been put on paid leave after his ex-wife Jeanne filed for a protective order against him last week.

According to the Charlotte Observer, Hurney and his wife divorced in 2014, but she is alleging Carolina’s interim GM has been harassing her for years. She claims Hurney or his friends broke into her home and/or classroom and put post-it notes in one of her books with words such as “victim” or “terrorize.”

Nick Foles just threw for 373 yards and three touchdowns — and caught another score — to help the Eagles win Super Bowl 52 as game MVP. A quarterback who does something like that in the NFL’s biggest game, as Foles did in Sunday’s 41-33 victory over the Patriots, typically would be locked in as his team’s starter for the following season.

But most quarterbacks who do something like that are not viewed as a pure backup to a young franchise QB.

The Eagles don’t have to do anything with Foles soon, as he’s under contract for another year with a bargain $7 million coming his way. But as they get closer to the 2018 season and learn more about Carson Wentz’s recovery timetable from a knee injury, the Eagles’ good QB problem will get tougher.

Ballard offered no forgiveness or breaks to McDaniels — he simply said what he felt Wednesday and he kept it short and sweet.

“Let me make this clear, I want, and we want as an organization, a head coach (who) wants to be all in,” he said. “We’ve got work to do, I’m not … we have work to do and I want somebody (who’s) 100 percent committed to partnering with us and getting that work done.”

The Colts have a long way to go as an organization. Ballard has had one year at the helm as the team’s GM, franchise quarterback Andrew Luck missed the entire 2017 season with a shoulder injury, and the team was 31st in total offense and 30th in total defense.

A head coach may not have changed their fates immediately, but they thought they had their man and are understandably miffed at McDaniels for backing out of a contract both parties had agreed upon.

“I got a call Tuesday evening that he had changed his mind and was going in a different direction,” Ballard said. “And at that point I informed our owner, we informed y’all about where we were going and we’ll keep moving forward.”nike-youth-cardinals-021

The first thing the league should do is get rid of the automatic reviews after turnovers and touchdowns. If a coach wants to challenge one of those plays, they can, but it should stop being an automatic review. That would reduce the reviews instantly.

The next thing they should do is tell Alberto Riveron, the league’s Senior vice president of officiating, to relax.

Riveron is the one in New York responsible for looking at the replays and working with the game’s referee to decide whether to overturn a call.

He was the one who ruled Sunday that Seferian-Jenkins lost control of the ball when he hit the ground in the end zone on his way out of bounds. Only Riveron thought it was not a catch. Even his predecessors in the job thought it should have remained a touchdown.

Only when you go to freeze-frame pictures can you see the ball move slightly, but Seferian-Jenkins never loses control of the ball. His hands stay on it the entire time.

In laying out a new, tougher policy for NFL players found guilty of domestic violence, Goodell said there would be a six-game suspension without pay for the first offense and a lifetime ban for a second offense.

Goodell was criticized initially for giving Rice just a two-game ban in July following the Feb. 15 incident.

The video of Rice punching Janay Rice, who is now his wife, surfaced after he spent the first game of the season on the sidelines.

Authentic Mens Marc-Edouard Vlasic Jersey After the tape Jerome Bettis Womens Jersey sparked national outrage, Goodell increased the penalty to an indefinite suspension and the Ravens cut Rice loose.

Authentic Mens Zach Duke Jersey On Nov. 28, an arbitrator overturned the ban, calling Goodell’s decision arbitrary.

Trump refrained from tweeting about pro football Sunday morning, but an online fundraising organization for Trump and Vice President Pence did up the ante last week.

The President has asked for a list of supporters who stand for the national anthem. Add your name below to show your patriotism and support, said the petition, published by the Trump Make America Great Again Committee on the Republican National Committee website. The RNC has not said how many signatures it has received.

Last week, Trump made known his displeasure with the result of the owners-players meeting, tweeting, Total disrespect for our country! He had called on the NFL to institute a policy requiring players to stand for the anthem, but owners and players were concentrating on community activism. And owners seemed divided on the issue, with Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shahid Khan saying that Trump’s frequent criticism stems from being jealous of Khan and other owners.

How exec allegedly belittled women at NFL Network ‘cesspool’

NFL Network’s former director of talent development is the latest one accused in the network’s ongoing sexual misconduct scandal, according to a report published Monday by Deadspin.

Marc Watts, who currently runs the media training company Marc’d Academy, is accused of making sexually charged comments during his time at the network, a former employee told the website under the condition of anonymity.

Watts also allegedly asked his then-colleague if he was f锟紺king a female co-worker from his previous company.

In addition to Cantor, female sports reporter Lindsay McCormick revealed she endured a nightmarish conversation with a former employee during NFL Network’s interview process, in which a network executive asked if she planned on getting knocked up upon being hired.

Last week, NFL Media’s vice president and executive editor, David Eaton, scrubbed his social media accounts of years’ worth of NSFW exchanges with escorts and porn stars.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Wednesday he takes all allegations very seriously.

While the overnight ratings for the divisional playoff games, released on Monday, showed a marked decline from last year, the viewership numbers on Wednesday, from Nielsen, first revealed just how Womens Sean Davis Jersey many football fans tuned out.

To be sure, NFL games are the highest-rated live sports on TV and advertisers still scramble to advertise on the telecasts as they draw high numbers of young male viewers.

The decline in NFL ratings has been the subject of a national debate all season 锟斤拷 with everything from too much pigskin on TV to fears of injury and even the politics of players kneeling in protest during the national anthem being cited.

The other teams come from smaller markets and lack any players with a national reputation.

The Thunder have a more legit chance.

And now there is Jones’s very public opposition to Goodell’s extension, which has persisted to the point that an attorney for the NFL wrote to Jones’s lawyer, David Boies, in a letter: “Your client’s antics, whatever their motivation, are damaging the League and reflect conduct detrimental to the League’s best interests.”

Jones told owners on the compensation committee, which is negotiating Goodell’s contract extension, that he’d hired Boies and was contemplating a lawsuit. In a letter written by a Cowboys attorney, Jones accused Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, the chairman of the compensation committee, of misleading owners about the negotiations with Goodell.

Windhorst: I don’t know. So much will depend on how this season ends. There are plenty of people who operate in the league who swear he’s headed to L.A. However, that would buck a pretty significant historical trend. Top free agents don’t typically downgrade chances to win a title. The Lakers are very far from a title contender even if they add him.

Once again, Auburn president Steven Leath insinuated that Pearl was being less than forthcoming with the school’s internal investigation. ESPN reported in November that Pearl’s refusal to cooperate with Auburn’s internal investigation into his program could put his job in jeopardy.

“Bruce and his staff are doing a great job on the court,” Leath said last week, according to “Clearly, Bruce knows that my expectation is that sooner or later he’s going to have to come in and talk to me and others on campus about what’s going on in the program, and we’re moving toward a solution on that, but that is an expectation.”

I’ll put that in your lap.’ There will be other ownership groups where there’s a family background or circumstances in their own beliefs where they will tell the GM and the head coach, ‘Hey, I don’t want us to take on Joe Mixon into our organization because I don’t want to have to answer the questions of why we took a player that did something as bad as he did when he struck the young lady there at Oklahoma.’ So to me, this is all about ownership, the relationship there and what they feel compelled to do.

Shanahan doesn’t have a franchise quarterback yet.

And that might end up helping Shanahan, oddly. If the Rams indeed have their quarterback already in the fold with Goff, that would mean they wouldn’t be a bidder for Kirk Cousins this coming offseason if and when the twice-franchise-tagged Redskins quarterback becomes available. That would remove one potentially viable Cousins competitor for Shanahan and the Niners.

And, throughout history, it has resembled Michael Jordan’s pursuit of regular-season MVPs. Many coaches who’ve led championship-level squads have failed to win the award in their best years.

Mike Krzyzewski has five national titles, and he could win another one this season, months before the nation’s best recruiting class arrives, with R.J. Barrett, Cam Reddish, Zion Williamson and Tre Jones. But he has never won the Associated Press college basketball coach of the year award.

Mentally, now we have a chance to go after the No. 1 seed, Rockets sixth man Eric Gordon said. Because if it’s a tie at the end of the year, we have that edge.
