With every Anthony Davis put-back dunk Rashaad Penny Color Rush Jersey , reverse alley-oop jam, step-back 3-pointer or game-sealing block in the playoffs, the New Orleans Pelicans take a step closer to becoming the NBA’s next small-market success story.

That didn’t quite happen with Chris Paul, who essentially forced a trade after his sixth season in the Big Easy amid concerns about uncertain ownership.

The 25-year-old Davis is now in his sixth season in New Orleans. And the five-time All-Star is not only playing historically good basketball, but seems to see no need for moving vans in order to go ring hunting.

Davis, after all, was a young fan when Reggie Miller was in the twilight of an 18-year career with Indiana that transformed the Pacers into playoff regulars – and while Tim Duncan was embarking on a long career in San Antonio highlighted by five NBA titles.

”There’s always, you know, `You can’t win in a small market or you can’t get noticed in a small market,’ but then you look at those guys and they’ve won and been well recognized in their respective teams,” Davis said, referring to Miller and Duncan. ”I love the city of New Orleans. I love playing for the city. The city’s showed me a lot of love, so I couldn’t ask for a better place to be.”

New Orleans is noticing. So, apparently, is the rest of the world.

Sharp-shooting forward Nikola Mirotic, a Montenegro native acquired by the Pelicans in a mid-season trade, said Davis already has enhanced New Orleans’ international profile because of the NBA’s global appeal.

”I know in my country, for example – or Spain Reuben Foster Jersey Youth , or Serbia – they all talk about him. They all want to see him playing because of the show he puts on,” Mirotic said. ”He’s still young. There’s a lot of room for him to improve. I’m sure he’s going to be someone that everybody is going to remember in the future.”

Saints quarterback Drew Brees remains New Orleans’ most popular athlete. But Davis’ rising global star power is on full display.

The Pelicans’ home arena, the Smoothie King Center, was packed to the rafters and deafeningly loud during games 3 and 4 of sixth-seeded New Orleans’ somewhat surprising first-round sweep of the third-seeded Portland Trail Blazers. The series victory not only was New Orleans’ first since 2008, but only the second since the NBA returned 16 seasons ago to the city where the Pete Maravich-led Jazz originally played from 1974-79, before moving to Utah.

Davis averaged 33 points, 12 rebounds and nearly three blocks per game during the first round of the playoffs, earning him constant ”M-V-P” chants from fans – who hope this is just the start.

”We would want this to be something that changes the mindset of not just what we do here, but also of other people looking to come here,” said Pelicans forward Solomon Hill, who joined Davis as a free agent in 2016. ”From player personnel to the front office, whatever it may be, we’re trying to let everybody know that New Orleans is a place where we’re trying to win – and he’s the key piece you need.”

Sitting on the bench in street clothes and a walking boot watching Davis these days is fellow All-Star DeMarcus Cousins, who is due to become a free agent this offseason. The Pelicans have said they’ll try to re-sign Cousins, who technically is now part of his first playoff team in eight NBA seasons, but who still has yet to play in the postseason because of his Achilles tear in January.

Davis said he hopes the way the Pelicans played, and the way fans cheered, in the first round gives Cousins ”a little itch to come back.”

New Orleans hardly looked like a playoff lock in the highly competitive Western Conference after Cousins was injured. But Davis averaged an NBA-high 30.2 points during the last 34 regular season games Courtland Sutton Broncos Jersey , with the Pelicans going 21-13.

Unlike when Paul was in New Orleans, the Pelicans are now on sound financial footing, with the same local ownership as the NFL’s Saints. They have a modern, spacious, permanent practice facility on the same campus as Saints headquarters and a team-friendly arena lease that runs through 2024.

Davis is under contract for three more seasons.

”I know that his goal is to be the foundation of a team that wins consistently here,” coach Alvin Gentry said. ”With the talent-level that he is and the way he can make other guys better just by being on the court with them, I see no reason why that can’t happen.”

Guard Jrue Holiday, who had 33 points in Game 2 and 41 in Game 4, is under contract for four more seasons. Veteran guard Rajon Rondo, who won a title in Boston with a ”Big Three” of Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen, said he came to New Orleans on a one-year deal to play with the ”Big Three” of Davis, Cousins and Holiday. During the playoffs, Rondo has emerged as the club’s third star, piling up 53 assists in four games.

Davis wants Rondo back next year as well, and very well may get his wish.

”We just can’t make this a one-every-three-years or one-every-two-years” playoff run, Davis said. ”It needs to be a consistent thing where before every season they’re talking about: These are the top five teams that we know are going to be in there – and we need to be one of them.”

鈥?The Kansas City Chiefs played so well without Marcus Peters last week that some wondered whether they were better off without the talented yet volatile All-Pro cornerback.Peters provided quite an answer to that question Saturday night.Returning from a one-game disciplinary suspension, Peters picked off Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers twice and caused another fumble in a dazzling performance. Kansas City added another interception of Rivers and rolled on offense to a 30-13 victory and a stronghold on the AFC West lead.“Marcus went out there and played lights-out football Bobby Doerr Jersey ,” said Chiefs safety Ron Parker, who had the other pick. “I think he came back with an ego. He wanted to prove to us that he missed us.”He proved it with his actions, even if he didn’t want to say it in words.Peters refused to speak to reporters this week, then declined to speak again after the game, even though players can be subject to fines if they do not handle media responsibilities.There were plenty of others in the Chiefs’ locker room willing to speak for him, though.“Definitely not surprised,” said Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith, who threw for 231 yards and two scores. “He’s such a competitor on top of what kind of player he is. He’s got amazing ability, he has such great feel for the game 鈥?just a heck of a competitor.”But that competitiveness had boiled over in recent weeks, and led to embarrassing incident in New York when he chucked an officials’ flag into the stands during a loss to the Jets. Those antics, and a blowup with an assistant coach on the team bus, earned him a one-game suspension from coach Andy Reid.“He has a chip on his shoulder. That’s how he plays the game,” Chiefs cornerback Darrelle Revis said. “Coming back from his suspension, really contributing to this win, it’s big.”Kareem Hunt had 155 yards rushing and a touchdown, and hauled in seven catches for 51 yards and another score, as Kansas City (8-6) beat the Chargers (7-7) for the eighth straight time.Now, they need only win one of their final two games to clinch the AFC West and a playoff berth.The Chargers http://www.ramsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-john-franklin-myers-jersey , meanwhile, have to win out and get a lot of help if they want to reach the postseason, a disappointing turn of events for a team that had already dug out from a 0-4 start.“At this point we don’t control our own destiny,” Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said. “We lost that today. We can win out but we need some help. All we can control is these next two weeks.”TYREEK THE FREAK: Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill showed off his speed on a 64-yard touchdown catch, beating Chargers CB Casey Hayward. It was Hill’s seventh touchdown reception of the season. “He almost overthrew me,” Hill said of Smith’s throw. “I went to the sidelines and gave him crap for it.”INJURY WOES: Chargers LB Denzel Perryman (hamstring), S Adrian Phillips (ankle), DT Corey Liuget (knee) and LT Russell Okung (groin) were among those to go down Saturday night. RB Austin Ekeler also hurt his hand after fumbling the ball away in the second half. “We had a bunch of guys come out of the game today,” Rivers said. “That’s not an excuse but that certainly didn’t help.”DIVISION DOMINANCE: Reid improved to 10-3 against the Chargers, including his time with Philadelphia, while Smith improved to 7-1. The organization’s streak of eight consecutive wins ties the franchise record of eight straight over the Chargers from 1990-93.STILL CLIMBING: Rivers’ lone touchdown pass went to Antonio Gates, the 86th time he’s connected with his trusty tight end. That broke a tie with the 49ers’ Steve Young and Jerry Rice for the second-most connections between a quarterback and pass-catcher, trailing only Peyton Manning and Marvin Harrison. The longtime Colts teammates connected for 112 touchdowns.LOOKING AHEAD: The Chiefs can clinch the AFC West with a win over the Dolphins next Sunday, while the Chargers head to the Meadowlands to face the Jets with fading postseason hopes. “Just keep going,” Rivers said. “We’ve got two games left. Finish it the right way.”.

RABAT, Sept. 28 (Xinhua) -- The Moroccan city of Marrakech launched on Thursday electrical busses from China in a bid to improve transportation service and reduce pollution.

The buses will ensure the transportation of over 45,000 people a day.

After this step, Marrakech, which hosted the UN Climate Summit last year, has become the first Moroccan city to use these environment-friendly buses.

The use of these buses was scheduled in November 2016 to coincide with the holding of the UN summit, but the City Council decided to delay it for multiple reasons, among which the need to conduct further studies and train drivers.

Chinese bus manufacturer Yangtse signed with Moroccan companies an agreement for the establishment of a plant to produce electric buses for Moroccan and European markets.

RICHMOND, Va. Inter Milan Keita Balde Jersey . -- After seven months and 28 races, NASCAR has hit that part of the season that really matters. The start of the playoffs signifies a shift in attitude and aggression, and if there was any doubt the mindset had changed, Kevin Harvick posted a warning about his mood for the next 10 weeks.It was a video of an angry bull charging into the grandstands.And so the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship begins Sunday at Chicagoland Speedway with 16 drivers laser-focused on the big prize. Its 10 races, three rounds of elimination, and every man for himself.So dont be surprised if tempers boil over, paint is traded on the track, angry words are exchanged. Its already started, to a degree. Tony Stewart has intentionally wrecked drivers in two consecutive races, including Saturday nights regular-season finale with contact that officially ended Ryan Newmans shot at making the Chase.A frustrated Newman called his former boss bipolar and said Stewart had anger issues. Stewart was nonchalant, said Newman had it coming after running into him three times at Richmond.Remember, the Chase and this format can bring out the worst in even the most mild-mannered driver. Matt Kenseth tackled Brad Keselowski in a very un-Kenseth-like attack in 2014, then he earned a NASCAR suspension last year for an intentional crash that ruined Joey Loganos title chances.Denny Hamlin, who won Saturday night at his home track to give Joe Gibbs Racing three consecutive victories at Richmond and wins in nine of the last 15, said the jockeying for the final spots in the Chase field led to some of the recent aggression. He also speculated the length of the season could be a contributor, especially for drivers not battling for the title.Some guys have a care factor thats really low right now, Hamlin said. I think things get a little bit tamer in the Chase because people are aware of the Chase cars. Whether they say so or not, they definitely race a little bit more careful around those guys, especially when youre not racing for a win.As for the Chase drivers themselves? When the field will be trimmed by four at the end of each round, Hamlin expects to see tense racing.As guys get eliminated, it could definitely ramp back up again, he said.Harvick certainly plans to live up to his word.The 2014 champion, the first winner under the elimination format, has never backed down from anyone or anything. His scathing assessment of his pit crew led to two changes to his race team last week. When he was flagged for speeding on pit road, driver error instead of team error, it could have been seen as a bit of karma working against Harvick for being less than politically correct about his own crew.He doesnt care what it takes, though, he just wants results.You just have to be selfish. You have to do whats best for your team, worry about the consequences when all the dust settles, he said. You have to be narrow-minded, not listen to anything, and do whatever it takes to figure out how to make the best performance. Every point matters. This is a minute-by-minute battle.You just try to think of dotting every I and crossing every T because thats what its all about, and you have to get everything out of every person that touches everything on that car at another level to win this deal.So now its about strategy and how each driver plans to attack each round.For some, like Chris Buescher, just getting into the 16-driver field was the prize. Last years Xfinity Series champion made the Chase by winning a rain-shortened race at Pocono, but he doesnt want to settle for a happy to be here attitude.We look at this first round, and we want to make it past that round. We want to move through the Chase, Buescher said. Then we can re-evaluate from there. If we can keep going farther and improve our program each and every weekend, thats always going to be what were aiming to do.Stewart is also assessing his final Chase appearance before he retires at the end of the year. He slumped his way into the 2011 Chase and said his team didnt even deserve a spot in the field.Then he won the whole thing, his third NASCAR title.So hes just going to play this one by ear.Who knows whats going to happen? he said. All I care about right now is getting ready for Chicago. Once we get through that, Ill worry about Week 2. This is a stressful 10 weeks and you take it one week at a time. Thats what we did in `11, and it worked. Inter Milan Matias Vecino Jersey . Peter Gammons, an analyst for Major League Baseballs network and website, drew the ire of hockey fans on Sunday when he criticized the two NHL teams on Twitter for their physical game the night before.

Sgt. Eric ONeal says most of the arrests at Monday nights game were for public drunkenness, though one person was taken into custody on suspicion of trying to steal a seat from the stadium. A look at whats happening today at the baseball winter meetings in Oxon Hill, Maryland:---CLOSE ITThe World Series champion Cubs are hoping to finish off a deal for closer Wade Davis in a trade that would send outfielder Jorge Soler to Kansas City. Davis has been dominant for the last three years and would inherit the role left open when Aroldis Chapman became a free agent.Davis has especially excelled in postseason play, and helped the Royals win the 2015 crown. In those 27 1/3 innings as a reliever, he has a 0.33 ERA -- one earned run in 27 1/3 innings, with 39 strikeouts.He spent time on the disabled with a forearm injury last season and was limited to 43 1/3 innings, but returned to pitch in September.NATS TARGETING MCCUTCHENLooking to make a splash, the hometown Washington Nationals struck out on trying to acquire ace Chris Sale when the Chicago White Sox instead sent him to the Boston Red Sox. Given the price of the return, its not shocking that Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo couldnt match because Trea Turner wasnt going anywhere.Now the Nationals can turn their focus to outfielder and 2013 NL NVP Andrew McCutchen. Rizzo acknowledged he has been in talks with Pittsburgh Pirates GM Neal Huntington, but the cost could be one or both of Washingtons top prospects: Victor Robles and Lucas Giolito.One things for sure: Rizzo hasnt shied away from a big, win-now trade before.WHITE SOX STILL FOR SALETrading Sale to the Red Sox for a hefty haul of prospects might be just the start of a White Sox fire sale. Center fielder Adam Eaton, starter Jose Quintana and closer David Robertson could all get dealt in the coming days, weeks or months as Chicago goes into full rebuilding mode.You try not to get too far ahead of yourself because obviously weve just done one major deal and try not to look three, four down the line about what its going to look like because were not going to force this thing, GM Rick Hahn said. Inter Milan Radja Nainggolan Jersey. Getting third baseman Yoan Moncada, considered the top prospect in baseball, along with pitchers Michael Kopech and Victor Diaz, and outfielder Luis Basabe for Sale was a nice start.HEAR THISLongtime Chicago baseball announcers Ken Harrelson and Pat Hughes are among the eight finalists for the Ford C. Frick Award thats being presented on the last full day of the meetings.The tribute is for broadcasting excellence, and the other candidates are Gary Cohen, Jacques Doucet, Bill King, Mike Krukow, Ned Martin and Dewayne Staats. The winner will be honored at the Hall of Fame this summer.NOT WORTH SAVING?Mark Melancon already cashed in on a $62 million, four-year deal with the San Francisco Giants, and fellow closers Kenley Jansen and Aroldis Chapman will undoubtedly get paid. But in this age of evolving bullpens, Houston Astros manager A.J.

RICHMOND, Va. Inter Milan Keita Balde Jersey . -- After seven months and 28 races, NASCAR has hit that part of the season that really matters. The start of the playoffs signifies a shift in attitude and aggression, and if there was any doubt the mindset had changed, Kevin Harvick posted a warning about his mood for the next 10 weeks.It was a video of an angry bull charging into the grandstands.And so the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship begins Sunday at Chicagoland Speedway with 16 drivers laser-focused on the big prize. Its 10 races, three rounds of elimination, and every man for himself.So dont be surprised if tempers boil over, paint is traded on the track, angry words are exchanged. Its already started, to a degree. Tony Stewart has intentionally wrecked drivers in two consecutive races, including Saturday nights regular-season finale with contact that officially ended Ryan Newmans shot at making the Chase.A frustrated Newman called his former boss bipolar and said Stewart had anger issues. Stewart was nonchalant, said Newman had it coming after running into him three times at Richmond.Remember, the Chase and this format can bring out the worst in even the most mild-mannered driver. Matt Kenseth tackled Brad Keselowski in a very un-Kenseth-like attack in 2014, then he earned a NASCAR suspension last year for an intentional crash that ruined Joey Loganos title chances.Denny Hamlin, who won Saturday night at his home track to give Joe Gibbs Racing three consecutive victories at Richmond and wins in nine of the last 15, said the jockeying for the final spots in the Chase field led to some of the recent aggression. He also speculated the length of the season could be a contributor, especially for drivers not battling for the title.Some guys have a care factor thats really low right now, Hamlin said. I think things get a little bit tamer in the Chase because people are aware of the Chase cars. Whether they say so or not, they definitely race a little bit more careful around those guys, especially when youre not racing for a win.As for the Chase drivers themselves? When the field will be trimmed by four at the end of each round, Hamlin expects to see tense racing.As guys get eliminated, it could definitely ramp back up again, he said.Harvick certainly plans to live up to his word.The 2014 champion, the first winner under the elimination format, has never backed down from anyone or anything. His scathing assessment of his pit crew led to two changes to his race team last week. When he was flagged for speeding on pit road, driver error instead of team error, it could have been seen as a bit of karma working against Harvick for being less than politically correct about his own crew.He doesnt care what it takes, though, he just wants results.You just have to be selfish. You have to do whats best for your team, worry about the consequences when all the dust settles, he said. You have to be narrow-minded, not listen to anything, and do whatever it takes to figure out how to make the best performance. Every point matters. This is a minute-by-minute battle.You just try to think of dotting every I and crossing every T because thats what its all about, and you have to get everything out of every person that touches everything on that car at another level to win this deal.So now its about strategy and how each driver plans to attack each round.For some, like Chris Buescher, just getting into the 16-driver field was the prize. Last years Xfinity Series champion made the Chase by winning a rain-shortened race at Pocono, but he doesnt want to settle for a happy to be here attitude.We look at this first round, and we want to make it past that round. We want to move through the Chase, Buescher said. Then we can re-evaluate from there. If we can keep going farther and improve our program each and every weekend, thats always going to be what were aiming to do.Stewart is also assessing his final Chase appearance before he retires at the end of the year. He slumped his way into the 2011 Chase and said his team didnt even deserve a spot in the field.Then he won the whole thing, his third NASCAR title.So hes just going to play this one by ear.Who knows whats going to happen? he said. All I care about right now is getting ready for Chicago. Once we get through that, Ill worry about Week 2. This is a stressful 10 weeks and you take it one week at a time. Thats what we did in `11, and it worked. Inter Milan Matias Vecino Jersey . Peter Gammons, an analyst for Major League Baseballs network and website, drew the ire of hockey fans on Sunday when he criticized the two NHL teams on Twitter for their physical game the night before.

Sgt. Eric ONeal says most of the arrests at Monday nights game were for public drunkenness, though one person was taken into custody on suspicion of trying to steal a seat from the stadium. A look at whats happening today at the baseball winter meetings in Oxon Hill, Maryland:---CLOSE ITThe World Series champion Cubs are hoping to finish off a deal for closer Wade Davis in a trade that would send outfielder Jorge Soler to Kansas City. Davis has been dominant for the last three years and would inherit the role left open when Aroldis Chapman became a free agent.Davis has especially excelled in postseason play, and helped the Royals win the 2015 crown. In those 27 1/3 innings as a reliever, he has a 0.33 ERA -- one earned run in 27 1/3 innings, with 39 strikeouts.He spent time on the disabled with a forearm injury last season and was limited to 43 1/3 innings, but returned to pitch in September.NATS TARGETING MCCUTCHENLooking to make a splash, the hometown Washington Nationals struck out on trying to acquire ace Chris Sale when the Chicago White Sox instead sent him to the Boston Red Sox. Given the price of the return, its not shocking that Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo couldnt match because Trea Turner wasnt going anywhere.Now the Nationals can turn their focus to outfielder and 2013 NL NVP Andrew McCutchen. Rizzo acknowledged he has been in talks with Pittsburgh Pirates GM Neal Huntington, but the cost could be one or both of Washingtons top prospects: Victor Robles and Lucas Giolito.One things for sure: Rizzo hasnt shied away from a big, win-now trade before.WHITE SOX STILL FOR SALETrading Sale to the Red Sox for a hefty haul of prospects might be just the start of a White Sox fire sale. Center fielder Adam Eaton, starter Jose Quintana and closer David Robertson could all get dealt in the coming days, weeks or months as Chicago goes into full rebuilding mode.You try not to get too far ahead of yourself because obviously weve just done one major deal and try not to look three, four down the line about what its going to look like because were not going to force this thing, GM Rick Hahn said. Inter Milan Radja Nainggolan Jersey. Getting third baseman Yoan Moncada, considered the top prospect in baseball, along with pitchers Michael Kopech and Victor Diaz, and outfielder Luis Basabe for Sale was a nice start.HEAR THISLongtime Chicago baseball announcers Ken Harrelson and Pat Hughes are among the eight finalists for the Ford C. Frick Award thats being presented on the last full day of the meetings.The tribute is for broadcasting excellence, and the other candidates are Gary Cohen, Jacques Doucet, Bill King, Mike Krukow, Ned Martin and Dewayne Staats. The winner will be honored at the Hall of Fame this summer.NOT WORTH SAVING?Mark Melancon already cashed in on a $62 million, four-year deal with the San Francisco Giants, and fellow closers Kenley Jansen and Aroldis Chapman will undoubtedly get paid. But in this age of evolving bullpens, Houston Astros manager A.J. Hinch doesnt think much of the save stat.The way we compensate saves, its very hard for anybody not to be attracted to that, Hinch said Tuesday. If we played in a nonemotional, noncompensated neutral environment, I think we would flush that stat saves down the toilet. But we dont. There is always going to be a constant pull and tug between players, compensation, manager, analytics, whats the smart thing to do?But by far the smartest thing to do is win the game.

ANAHEIM, Calif. Soccer Jerseys China . -- The fastball hit Albert Pujols in the side of his batting helmet, glancing off the bill and barely missing his face. The slugger went down in a frightening heap, but eventually dusted himself off and ran the bases.The Los Angeles Angels?also are trying to get up from a rough start to their season, and their veteran slugger is leading with both his example and his potent bat.Pujols hit a pair of three-run homers in his first six-RBI game since 2009, and the Angels remained unbeaten since the All-Star break with their season-best fifth straight victory, 8-6 over the Texas Rangers on Tuesday night.Pujols connected in the fourth and fifth innings against Kyle Lohse (0-2) for his second multihomer game in three days, propelling the Angels (42-52) to their ninth win in 11 games overall.Im starting to swing the bat well now, Pujols said. Our team needs that in the second half of the season, especially against the guys were chasing.Pujols then stayed in the game in the seventh inning when Texas reliever Tony Barnette accidentally hit him in the head with a 92 mph pitch. Barnette was just as concerned as the Angels training staff, apologizing three times on the field and again between the clubhouses afterward.Its a scary thing, hitting a guy in the head, Barnette said. Especially up and tight like that, it can do some damage. Ive got a family, hes got family, and it can be scary stuff for them. Im glad hes OK.Pujols shrugged it off.Im pretty sure thats the last thing that he wants to do on an 0-2 count, but its one of those things that happens in a game, Pujols said. I just told him, It happens. Its baseball.Pujols homers were the 578th and 579th of his career, pulling him closer to Mark McGwire (583) for 10th place on baseballs career list. He has 11 RBIs in the past three days.You always worry about a concussion, but he felt fine and he was laughing, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said of Pujols. Hes quietly having another incredible season.Jett Bandy also homered and drove in two runs for Los Angeles.One night after the Angels came back from four runs down to beat Texas, they erased an early three-run deficit in the fourth inning with one swing from Pujols.After Elvis Andrus doubled home the go-ahead run for Texas in the fifth, Pujols put the Angels back ahead with another three-run shot, completing the 54th multihomer game of his career after the Rangers walked Mike Trout to get to him.Well, Trout is the best hitter in the league, Texas manager Jeff Banister said. Were not going to let him beat us. ... Lohse hung the slider. Were trying to execute a pitch out of the strike zone for a chase, and thats where you trust a veteran of 16 years to make a pitch.Lohse yielded six hits and seven runs in his second start for Texas.Robinson Chirinos hit two early homers for the American League West-leading Rangers, who have lost six of seven. Ian Desmond hit a 462-foot homer, had three hits and reached base four times for the struggling Rangers.FREAK VICTORYPujols heroics preserved a positive result for Tim Lincecum (2-3), who had seven strikeouts while winning for the second time in his six starts for the Angels.I just wasnt consistent in my delivery, Lincecum said.Lincecum gave up nine hits and five runs in five innings but also escaped several jams.He pitched a lot better than his linescore, thats for sure, Scioscia said. I thought today was a step forward for him.SAVE DROUGHT ENDSHuston Street pitched the ninth for his eighth save -- his first since June 14 and the Angels first save in 29 games.TRAINERS ROOMRangers: Tanner Scheppers threw batting practice in Arizona. The reliever hasnt pitched all season while coming back from left knee surgery.Angels: Nick Tropeano has a torn ulnar collateral ligament, the third Los Angeles pitcher to incur that injury this season. The right-handed starter could need Tommy John surgery but will get a second opinion.UP NEXTRangers: Martin Perez (7-6, 4.05 ERA) has allowed 17 runs over 9 2/3 innings in his past two starts.Angels: Hector Santiago (7-4, 4.27 ERA) makes his fourth start of the season against Texas. He kicked off the Angels post-break surge with seven scoreless innings against the White Sox on Friday. Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys .

RALEIGH, N.C. -- The Latest on the NCAAs decision to pull some championship events from North Carolina because of state law that some say can lead to discrimination against LGBT people (all times local):6:45 p.m.A Republican state senator says the North Carolina legislature should consider repealing the law she and other GOP colleagues approved in March limiting anti-discrimination rules for LGBT people and which bathrooms transgender people can use.Sen. Tamara Barringer represents Cary, where four NCAA championship events were to occur before the group took them away Monday because of the law known as House Bill 2. Republican lawmakers have been otherwise united either defending the law or only making small adjustments.Barringer said Tuesday that with the NCAA decision to move events from North Carolina there have been too many unintended effects of HB 2.Supporters of the law say it was designed to keep men or boys from sharing school or government building restrooms or locker rooms with girls. Barringer says she doesnt want those situations to occur, either.Barringer is seeking re-election this November to her swing district.---4:20 p.m.Gov. Pat McCrory says the NCAA failed to show North Carolina respect when it moved championships and tournament games out of the state because of a law that governs which bathrooms transgender people must use.McCrory responded Tuesday to the NCAAs decision. The Monday action was related to House Bill 2, which McCrory signed into law.The law in part says people must use school and government bathrooms corresponding to the sex on their birth certificates. Several groups have challenged that in federal court. Meanwhile, other states are fighting an Obama administration directive for transgender people to use school bathrooms aligned with their gender identity.McCrory says institutions should let such litigation take its course without threats of economic threats or political retaliation. He says the NCAA faailed to do that at the expense of North Carolina student athletes and hard-working men and women. Cheap Jerseys From China. ---10:50 a.m.NCAA President Mark Emmert says whether the Atlantic Coast Conference decides to follow the associations lead and pull events out of North Carolina because of a state law that some say can lead to discrimination against LGBT people is completely up to the league and its members.The ACC championship football game is schedule to be held in Charlotte on Dec. 3.ACC Commissioner John Swofford issued a strong statement Monday night against the law known as HB2. He said he expects the conferences presidents and chancellors to consider relocating the game.The law requires transgender people to use restrooms at schools and government buildings corresponding to the sex on their birth certificates.---10:25 a.m.Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee for president, supports the NCAAs decision to pull events from North Carolina.She tweeted: The (at)NCAA is right to pull tournament games from North Carolina because of the anti-LGBT HB2 law. Discrimination has no place in America. -H---10:15 a.m.NCAA President Mark Emmert tells The Associated Press the financial impact on the association for moving championship events and tournaments out of North Carolina on short notice has yet to be determined.Itll cost some money and, of course, North Carolina is a great venue and always has a lot of fans, Emmert told The Associated Press in an interview. There will be some financial impact for the association, but the board is well aware of that and they recognize the issue was more important than the finances.Emmert said no new sites for the seven pulled events have been identified yet, and he has not set a deadline on replacements venues being picked. But he said his staff is working aggressively to relocate events.

When the Queen said she was a fan of her, Nicola Adams realized the extent of her trailblazing fame. Cheap Atlanta Hawks Jerseys .The Olympic flyweight champion has planned to make the most of it, too, with feature roles in Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead on her agenda. After the small matter of the Rio Olympics and, possibly, Tokyo 2020, of course.It has been a whirlwind really, going to music award shows, movie premieres, TV shows, meeting the Queen, receiving my MBE in 2013, traveling halfway across the world with the [former] prime minister [David Cameron], Adams said.Its quite hard to put into words but I think Ive managed to stay grounded and keep the training going and winning medals.The one that came close to winning the Olympic gold medal was receiving my MBE from the Queen. She was saying good luck to me and wishing me continued support.She did say she was a big boxing fan and that she was looking forward to seeing me in Rio, so I guess I had to qualify. No pressure. On Her Majestys orders.The 33-year-old, who has been described as one of Britains most influential figures in the gay community, is not ruling out boxing at a third Olympics.Beyond the ring, the cheerful Adams admitted she wants to launch an acting career after parts as an extra in British soap operas before London 2012.Tokyo is on the cards, maybe turning professional as well, a bit of acting, but I need to get Rio done first, she said.Im thinking more The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones. And I dont just want cameos as Nicola Adams, I want to be the star. I used to do extra work on Coronation Street ?and Emmerdale and I wanted to take it further, but training got in the way.Flyweight gold at Rio 2016 would make Adams Britains first double Olympic boxing champion and that historic mark has been a significant motivation.She has already enjoyed becoming the first woman to win a Commonwealth Games boxing gold medal -- at Glasgow 2014 -- and last year won gold at the World Amateur Championships.Lofty post-boxing ambitions have not proved a distraction, and the Leeds-born Adams claimed she would arrive in the ring at the Rio Games in top shape.Ive improved since 2012, in everything, she said. My strength, my fitness, my technique, my speed.Thats the thing with boxing, youre never the finished article, there is always bits you can improve on, you can always be that much more rounded as a fighter technically, that little bit stronger or faster.At some point, time will be against me, [but] this is my peak, I feel as strong as I ever have. I won the Europeans this year, the World Championships this year, now I want to hopefully go on and win the Olympics.Its my passion, I love the sport and the thought that pretty much every time I step in the ring now, I make history, gives me that much more inspiration.To be able to complete the grand slam of titles, weve never had anybody in boxing do that before, male or female, so its nice to be able to go along and make some history and show everybody how great British boxing really is.

The judges scored it 48-47, 48-47, 49-46 for Jones (19-1). It was the champions closest call. Despite the loss, it was a remarkable show by the confident Swedish challenger, who had the best of the early rounds and then hung on in the fourth and fifth. In a viral video released by the European Tour on Friday, world No. 2 Rory McIlroy answered questions from 9-year-old Little Billy on a wide assortment of topics that varied from his decision to skip the Olympics to what golf clubs he might use in 2017.McIlroy, who played along and was a good sport through it all, chuckled at nearly every question tossed his way, sometimes with an uncomfortable awkwardness that lent itself to the authenticity of the session. Some of the playful queries on serious topics included:? If youre so tough, how come youre so scared of a little mosquito? (This came in reference to McIlroy skipping the Rio Olympics in August in part because of the Zika virus scare that has been linked to birth defects in children.) McIlroy replied that he was looking forward to having kids someday and a few people used that excuse and I sort of jumped on the bandwagon.? Whos your favorite girrrrrl tennis player? (McIlroy was expecting to marry former world No. 1 tennis player Caroline Wozniacki before he broke off the engagement in 2014.) After struggling to find an answer, McIlroy conceded, Honestly, Billy, Ive stopped following womens tennis the last couple of years.??Showing a photo of some of McIlroys past hairstyles, Billy asked, What weeeere you thinking? (It was a phase and I should have listened to my dad, came McIlroys response.)? Little Billy told the four-time major champ that he wanted to interview Tiger Woods next. The 9-year-old asked whether McIlroy could put in a good word for him with Woods.Ill put in a good word for you, McIlroy said. Id love to see you interview Tiger. Id love to see that.The youngster followed up by asking whether he should ask Woods for career advice or chat-up (pickup) lines.Chat-up lines, McIlroy said. Hes been pretty successful in both areas, bbut I dont see why you couldnt ask him both questions. Cheap Houston Rockets Jerseys. ??In possibly the first time a U.S. president-elect and a former One Direction singer were mentioned in the same sentence, Little Billy posed the question, Who tries the hardest to be your friend, Donald Trump or Niall Horan?They both love golf, McIlroy answered. I think thats a great thing. And because Im good at it, its nice to have a relationship. Id say Trump tried a little harder than Niall did.? With Nike exiting the golf club business and McIlroy a major endorser of the brand, Little Billy asked the Northern Irishman what kind of clubs he should get for Christmas if he wanted ones just like McIlroys next year.McIlroy deftly replied that Santa would know, stopping the kid in his tracks.So what was McIlroy expecting from the cub reporter?It was a lot of fun, McIlroy said Saturday. [I got a call] the week before and [was asked], how close to the bone can we go? And I said, look, I dont mind, you can go as close as you want. Wasnt quite expecting some of the questions that came up, but it was all in good fun.McIlroy, who shot 68 in Round 3 of the DP World Tour Championship, where the interview with Little Billy occurred, scrambled as best he could considering the circumstances.I definitely had to put my thinking hat on a couple of times and try to wiggle out a couple of them as best I could,?McIlroy said.The interview, which aired Friday, ended with Little Billy offering an early wedding gift to McIlroy, who is engaged to American Erica Stoll. When McIlroy opened the box full of socks, he looked at Little Billy with a bemused expression.Just in case you get cold feet again, the 9-year-old said.

Canberra coach Ricky Stuart says he doesnt understand why Jarrod Croker hasnt rated serious mention as a contender for NSW State of Origin. Discount NFL Jerseys For Sale .The Raiders skipper has been widely criticised for his defensive game but has improved markedly in 2016, according to Stuart.He has enjoyed one of his best seasons this year, and inspired his side to a 26-22 victory over the Warriors in golden point on Saturday to push them into the top four.Croker scored three tries, including the match-winning effort 90 seconds into extra time, had one try-assist plus five tackle busts and two line breaks.Hes got no greater supporter than myself, Stuart said.I dont understand why, outside of being picked, his name is not even mentioned (given) the consistency Jarrod has shown this year, the aggression hes got in his defence.The former Blues coach said his star centre gets blamed for a lot of the Raiders errors in defence, but insisted it was not all his fault.Jarrods defence has been so strong all season, he said.Theres other centres in the game that are missing tackles.Theres tries scored down those edges but that happens. Hes in an isolated position and a very tough position to defend but his consistency with every part of the game comes from the way he works off the field.Im really happy.Croker said he paid little attention to his critics or those talking up his chances of a Blues call-up.Im only worried about the people around me and the people in the club, he said.I dont buy into too much outside of that.Everyones entitled to their opinion, Im just happy to do my job and try and help the boys around me do their job.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi says hes thinking about allowing Rivera to do it this weekend, when the Yankees finish their season with a three-game series at the Houston Astros. COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Texas A&M is getting used to running its offense through its big men, and the Aggies so far are digging the results. Center Tyler Davis scored 17 points and guard D.J. Hogg added 12 as Texas A&M overwhelmed American for a 76-53 victory on Monday night in Reed Arena.For the second consecutive game against an undersized opponent, the Aggies (2-0) dominated inside, in outscoring the Eagles 44-22 in the paint.Our guys bought in defensively, and our length and our size in the paint gave them problems, A&M coach Billy Kennedy said. We have good size at every position.Hogg added a game-high nine rebounds, and A&M freshman forward Robert Williams added 10 points and two blocks in only his second game. Williams (6-9, 237) now has seven blocks on the season.Delante Jones led American (2-0) with 18 points and Saeed Nelson followed with 12. The Aggies made 6 of 14 3-pointers (42.9 percent), including a combined 4 of 5 by Hogg and freshman Eric Vila.The Aggies led 20-15 a little more than midway through the first half when they decided, thanks in large part to the 6-10 Davis and 6-9 Hogg, to put away the Eagles by the break. Davis and Hogg combined to make 9 of 13 field goals in the first half in staking A&M to a 41-20 lead.Theyre really big and talented and good at what they do, American coach Mike Brennan said of the Aggies. We knew it was going to be a huge challenge. Their perimeter guys are just as good as their big men -- they can make shots and play on the perimeter -- but their focus is getting the ball inside.The Aggies had dominated Northwestern State 42-8 in points in the paint in their Friday opener, a 72-44 victory over the Demons, when Davis also led the way with a game-high 16 points and 10 rebounds.Its beautiful, Hogg said of running the offense through the big men, particularly Davis, a preseason first-team All-SEC selection by the coaches. Tyler takes a lot of pressuree off of us, because he needs a double team to be stopped. Cheap Dallas Cowboys Jerseys. Otherwise its bucket after bucket.BIG PICTUREThe Aggies were wary of American only losing by six points (62-56) at Maryland on Friday, so they used their lopsided size advantage early and often to overwhelm the Eagles. A&M intends to work inside-out on offense all season, with center Tyler Davis the focal point.The Eagles are hoping a couple of rugged road losses to start the season will help when they need it most, and when the competition isnt quite as tough: in Patriot League action.HIGHLIGHT REEL:A&M freshman forward Robert Williams sailed above the rim for an alley-oop slam dunk on a pass from D.J. Hogg to make the score 62-32 in the second half.
