The Warriors trailed 74-52 at halftime in Philadelphia on Saturday before scoring 47 points in the third quarter and winning 124-116. Curry appeared determined to get Golden State going quickly in Durant’s absence, scoring 13 points while playing all 12 minutes in the first quarter.
Peterman was booed by the Bills fans in the crowd at the StubHub Center when he came onto the field with the offense late in Brent Urban Youth Jersey the second quarter. The crowd also chanted We want Tyrod shortly before halftime.
You really don’t understand why things happen sometimes, Peterman said of his performance. But I’ve got to trust in definitely a higher power, and I think my relationship [with God] helps me a lot with that.
After entering the game in the third quarter, Taylor finished 15-for-25 with 158 yards and a touchdown. Along with his five picks, Peterman went 6-for-14 for 66 yards.
Mens Shaq Lawson Jersey So a big part of the reason the Warriors are so great is that they consistently put their players in situations and locations in which they’re more likely to score. I estimate the Warriors are gaining .05 ppp this season — or about 30 percent of their scoring advantage over the league average — just from their distribution of play types.
Meanwhile, Golden State throws sand in the gears of anyone else looking to take off in transition. The Warriors play at a very quick overall tempo as measured by possessions per game. But in March 2015, Michael Beuoy of Inpredictable.com made a key discovery when studying play-by-play data: Offensive and defensive pace can differ when measured by time per possession.
It turns out Golden State had the quickest offense in the NBA that season, running plays in an average of just 13.4 seconds, but forced opponents to hold the ball for 15.4 seconds on average, the third-slowest pace in the league. That pattern has held: With relentless fast breaks on offense and constant harassment on defense, the Warriors have scored almost 200 more points than their opponents in transition this season, while actually getting outscored on all other plays combined.

Saints defensive end Alex Okafor suffered a season-ending torn Achilles in Sunday’s comeback victory over the Redskins, a source confirmed to ESPN.
The move suggests that the Saints want to be prepared in case their standout rookie cornerback, Marshon Lattimore, is unable to return from his ankle injury in time for Sunday’s game at the Los Angeles Rams.

Moore, 27, was New Orleans’ best cornerback last year when he signed in Week 1 and wound up playing a major role as Authentic Antoine Roussel Jersey an injury replacement. He started 12 games, led the team with 13 passes defended and tied for the team lead with two interceptions.
The Saints deemed Moore expendable last month, however, after he appeared in only two games with three tackles. Starters Lattimore and Ken Crawley have both played at a high level.
Moore (5-foot-10, 202 pounds) has started a total of 31 games in seven years with the New England Patriots, Dallas Cowboys, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Saints.
I play the same way every game and it lucked out for me today, Clayborn said, per The AJC. You always envision (a game like this), doesn’t mean it is going to happen. I am just blessed I am finally in my groove.
Prior to Sunday, Gase had asked his players to either stand for the anthem or stay in the tunnel 鈥?which the three players did.
Game Kids Matt Martin Jersey
Gase allowed his players to kneel during the anthem Sunday after they told him staying in the tunnel affects their game preparation, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported.
He just gave us the go, Michael Thomas said. That was it. He was like, ‘Do what y’all gotta do. Don’t think about what y’all are going to do like come in the locker room before the anthem. None of that. Just go out there and play. If y’all want to take a knee, take a knee.’

Train wreck: Including the game he got hurt, the Packers are now 1-4 without Aaron Rodgers this season, averaging 13.4 points per game in those contests. This looked like it would be a promising season for Green Bay, but after a shutout loss to the Ravens at Lambeau Field, it’s hard to see the remainder of the season being anything short of a mess.
Train wreck: Following a 3-1 start, the Broncos have dropped six straight games for the first time in a single season since 1990. Offensive coordinator Mike McCoy already has lost his job, and there’s no clear-cut No. 1 QB on the roster. This season couldn’t get much worse for Denver.
The Redskins running back was carted from the field with his right leg in an aircast following an ugly injury in the third quarter of Sunday’s game against the Saints. Washington coach Jay Gruden said following the game Thompson had a broken fibula.
Thompson was engaged with Saints safety Vonn Bell while blocking for a scrambling Kirk Cousins. When the Redskins quarterback was brought down by Sheldon Rankins, the Saints defensive tackle fell into the back of Thompson’s right leg.
Thompson, who had four carries for 17 yards and a 16-yard touchdown reception, had a towel over his face while he was carted to the locker room at the Superdome.
The fifth-year running back from Florida State was in the midst of the best season of his career. Cousins was also injured on the play after taking a big hit from Bell, but returned to deliver a 40-yard touchdown pass to Ryan Grant to give Washington a 24-13 lead heading into the fourth quarter.
To fill Marsh’s spot, the Patriots signed defensive end Eric Lee off the Buffalo Bills’ practice squad. The 6-foot-3, 260-pound Lee, who entered the NFL as a rookie free agent in 2016 with the Houston Texans, has been active for one career NFL Roy Oswalt Jersey game (Week 4 vs. Atlanta this year) but did not play. He attended South Florida and spent 2016 on the Texans’ practice squad before joining the Bills’ practice squad in early September.
The Patriots now have Trey Flowers, rookie Deatrich Wise Jr. and Lee as pure defensive ends on the roster, although linebackers Kyle Van Noy and Trevor Reilly sometimes play an edge-setting role.
Imagine Kirk Cousins’ surprise when he read in a newspaper Tuesday morning that he was ejected from the Pelicans-Thunder game for punching Russell Westbrook.
Elite Mens Deion Sanders Jersey The Redskins quarterback had fun with the obvious snafu in the newspaper, which clearly meant to say it was DeMarcus Cousins who was ejected from the NBA game Monday night, tweeting, Glad to see my fighting skills are getting proper recognition with a picture of the mistake.
Elite Kids Brady Skjei Jersey A few hours after the 27-7 Falcons rout, Jones emerged from the Cowboys’ locker room, looking drained but sounding defiant. Even some of his closest advisers aren’t on board with the war he is raging.
Give Griffin a decent supporting cast on short-term deals, and he might be able to keep the Clippers competitive enough without Jordan to make an appealing case for free agents. Everyone loves playing with good passers. Maybe Chris Carson Jersey the smart move is to flip Jordan now, bet on Griffin, and dip into free agency without constraints.

I’m in the same family as Davey Boy Smith and Bret Hart, so that is my job as a third-generation wrestler, said Hart. I was a fan first, and I’ve seen too many guys try to last a long time by taking shortcuts, doing the same old stuff and never modifying or innovating. Guys used to give me sh– about my style and tell me to do less, because ‘less is more’, but I’d never want to walk into McDonald’s and buy a Big Mac for $4, then only get half a burger. As a third generation guy in wrestling, I’ve always believed we need to do more for the fans.

Jacoby Brissett, Indianapolis Colts, right thumb, 1 p.m. ET: Maybe it was the 10 sacks Brissett took last Sunday that contributed to his right-thumb ailment, but it hasn’t slowed him down. Brissett was a full participant in practice each day and has been removed from the team’s pregame injury report.
This Sunday is indeed a throwback to old Bears football锟斤拷the defense dominates, while the offense struggles. Rookie safety Eddie Jackson single-handedly accounts for 14 Chicago points, with a fumble return for a touchdown and pick-6.

Kearse has no additional targets while within 13 yards of the goal line. Kearse’s 17 percent target share, combined with a dip in touchdowns, figures to keep him on the outside looking in at flex value in the second half.
Jerry’s message to his players. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has always valued his relationships inside the Dallas locker room. That’s why the Wednesday afternoon meeting he held with the players was an important one, in the wake of his comments Sunday that any Cowboy who didn’t stand for the national anthem wouldn’t play.
The Vegas Golden Knights completed a seven-game homestand on Friday with a 7-0 win against the Colorado Avalanche. Seven players scored as the Golden Knights celebrated Nevada Day — which commemorates Nevada’s admission to statehood on Oct. 31, 1864 — with their fifth consecutive victory. According to Elias, that five-in-a-row run matches the longest win streak by any team during its inaugural NHL season, joining the 1926-27 New York Rangers and 1979-80 Edmonton Oilers.

“I feel like I’m going to have a heart attack out there,” Correa said.
Won the third and fourth Cups of the Gretzky-Messier Era in 1987 and 1988.
Gretzky was traded to Los Angeles shortly after leading the Oilers to their fourth Cup in five years. The hangover was palpable. Edmonton went just 38-34-8 to finish third in the Smythe.
Messier and company faced Gretzky and the upstart Kings in an emotionally charged opening-round series. The Oilers took a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven only to get outscored 14-6 over the final three games as Gretzky fueled a rally. The Great One opened Game 7 with a goal 52 seconds in and finished off his old team with an empty netter.
Messier emerged from Gretzky’s shadow the following year, sweeping the Kings in the division finals before topping Boston to give the Oilers their fifth – and final – Cup in a decade.
Too many mistakes in the fourth quarter, coach Todd Bowles said. Can’t happen. Can’t put the ball on the ground. Can’t have timely mistakes. Everybody has to play their brand of ball. Hard enough, but not good enough.

Despite the soggy conditions, the Jets ran for just 43 yards on 22 carries. Matt Forte, who had 7 yards on four attempts, suggested that offensive coordinator John Morton strayed from the Kevin Durant Youth jersey game plan.

I think, to keep it frank, the NFL wants the protests to end. It’s bad for their business, but I think it’s ridiculous that they don’t want Colin to be there, being as he is the first one to start protesting. If we have to force him into that room, that’s what we’ll do. But it has to be under the right circumstances. We have to set a meeting, and there has to be people that are going to be there. I don’t think he’s going to fly out here to Philadelphia if nobody is going to be at the meeting.
I was in the bullpen toward the end; that’s why I had to throw on the field postgame, McCullers said. Just because I hadn’t thrown yet, because I was hot and ready to go, if the situation came up where they needed me.
Dodgers fans let it be known they were unhappy with Astros slugger Yuli Gurriel over his racially insensitive gesture toward Yu Darvish by booing him during pregrame introductions and his plate appearances during Game 6.
Undefeated Wisconsin (8-0) and Miami (7-0) are the leaders in the Big Ten West and ACC Coastal, respectively, but have been overshadowed by the front-runners in their opposing divisions because of strength of schedule. Wisconsin’s nonconference opponents are a combined 11-15. Of the Big Ten opponents they’ve played, only Northwestern (5-3) has a winning record. There’s currently not one ranked opponent on the Badgers’ schedule all season.

Beamer retired from coaching after the 2015 season, having served as Virginia Tech’s head coach for 29 seasons.

Beamer said he and his wife initially had reservations about his joining the committee because of the time commitment.
What it takes to feed an NFL team for a week: 700 pounds of chicken, 500 pounds of beef, 300 pounds of salmon, and a whole lot of planning.
Mike Zimmer’s decision to play a limited Sam Bradford on Monday night was the result of an old-school coach needing to know what his QB was capable of, writes Michael Rand. Meanwhile, Teddy Bridgewater is nearing a pivotal exam on his knee, which he injured in August 2016. His return would further complicate the Vikings’ QB situation.
The Bears’ offense is radically different with Mitchell Trubisky under center. On Monday night, he dropped back 22 times, but only 12 of those were traditional drop-backs.

Jared Goff, QB, Los Angeles Rams (26.6 percent): The reality is that many people have accounted for their fill-in quarterback in advance of the usual starter’s bye week, but for those who need to replace Tom Brady or Philip Rivers this weekend, Goff is a reasonable option among the quarterbacks who fit Byron Scott Jersey the criteria for this column (available in more than 50 percent of leagues).
Those three wins are probably already too many to secure the No. 1 draft pick in a year when two teams, the 49ers and Browns, are halfway through their schedule and still winless.
But the Jets have a ton Charles Woodson Jersey of money to work with and could go a different route to secure a quarterback of the future. The question is whether or not Cousins can see himself winning any time soon with a roster that may have the NFL’s least inspiring wide receiving corps.
There’s still a great chance that Washington and Cousins will get through this bumpy time in their marriage with a brand new contract that makes things all better.
I thought the kids had a phenomenal approach to coming out and working to get better, Norvell said. That is our sole focus, we’re not worried about anything else that’s out there other than today, and the opportunity we have to go to work, and I thought our kids did a great job.

Vancouver tied the game six minutes into the third while on the power play. After Markstrom chased down a puck to diffuse a short-handed breakaway, Vanek took a quick pass from Daniel Sedin in the slot at the other end and fired a hard shot that rebounded to Gagner. The center netted his first goal with the Canucks at 13:51, sending the crowd into a frenzy.
They’re disciplined, Jets coach Todd Bowles said about the Bills, who earned a 21-12 win in the first matchup between these two teams on opening day in upstate New York. The biggest thing is they don’t turn it over and they’re getting turnovers. They’re playing good football.
The Jets, on the other hand, are not playing good football. They have lost three straight after blowing 14-point leads to the Patriots and the Miami Dolphins and being up on the Atlanta Falcons going into the fourth quarter of a 25-20 loss Sunday.
