bounds and 2.5 assists, though that drops

  • (SportsNetwork. Ersan Ilyasova Jersey .com) - Washington Wizards guard John Wall played with a heavy heart the last time out in leading his team to victory and looks to keep the trend going Wednesday on the road against the Orlando Magic. Wall befriended a young cancer patient, Miyah Telemaque-Nelson, last March and the 6-year-old succumbed to the disease. Walls emotional night produced 26 points on 10-of-17 shooting, a career-high 17 assists and seven rebounds of Mondays 133-132 double-overtime win versus the Boston Celtics. Wall scored Washingtons last 10 points in the second overtime. John Wall is a superstar in this league. Hes grown up before our eyes, former Celtic and current Wizards Paul Pierce said. Pierce scored a season-best 28 points and Marcin Gortat finished with 21 points and 12 rebounds for the Wizards, winners in five of the last six games. Kris Humphries and Bradley Beal netted 17 and 14 points, respectively. Wall is second in the NBA with 10.4 assists per game and has at least 12 in each of the previous five games. He is the first player in franchise lore to hand out that many assists in five straight games. The Wizards are currently tied with Atlanta atop the Southeast standings and are 4-4 away from home this season. They are 11-0 this season when holding teams under 100 points. After their trip to the Magic Kingdom, the Wizards will return home for three games versus the Los Angeles Clippers, Utah Jazz and Minnesota Timberwolves. Orlando is back home after going 3-3 on a recent road trip. It won for the second straight time with Saturdays 105-96 triumph over the Sacramento Kings, as Tobias Harris led the way with 27 points and Victor Oladipo added 16. I just focus on winning, said Harris, who is averaging 18.9 points and has scored 20 or more three times in the last five games. For me, its all about helping my team win. Evan Fournier and Kyle OQuinn scored 15 and 13 points, respectively, for the Magic, who shot 50.6 percent and took advantage of a Kings squad without the services of double-double machine DeMarcus Cousins (virus). Magic center, leading scorer and top rebounder Nikola Vucevic missed his fourth straight game because of back spasms and is questionable Wednesday. He is amassing an average of 18.6 points and 11.7 rebounds. Vucevic still leads the NBA with 13 double-doubles. The Magic are 2-5 at home and have lost three in a row there. They will play a home-and-home series with the Hawks next. Orlando has lost the first two meetings with Washington this season and will visit the Wizards on Feb. 9. The Wizards have won six in a row in this series and are 9-2 in the past 11 encounters between the Southeast inhabitants. Dennis Rodman Pistons Jersey .com) - Manu Ginobili capped off a 26-point night with a go-ahead layup with 24 seconds left in overtime, with the basket giving the San Antonio Spurs a much-needed 95-93 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans. Isiah Thomas Pistons Jersey . - The Washington Redskins have signed free agent offensive lineman Mike McGlynn.TORONTO -- Rudy Gay and the Toronto Raptors just didnt work out, according to team general manager Masai Ujiri. Ujiri said he didnt have a problem with Gays talent level or attitude. But he said that the Raptors were lacking in chemistry, and changes had to come. So Ujiri pulled off his second major trade since joining the Raptors in the off-season, sending Gay and his sizable contract to the Sacramento Kings. "Phenomenal talented player, it just wasnt working," Ujiri said at a press conference Monday. Ujiri said there were issues with spacing on the floor, and also acknowledged the suggestions that Gay and guard DeMar DeRozan did many of the same things on the court. The seven-player deal also sees centre Aaron Gray and forward Quincy Acy head to the Kings. The Raptors receive guards John Salmons and Greivis Vasquez, forward Patrick Patterson and centre Chuck Hayes in return. For his part, Gay was looking forward to a fresh start with the Kings. "Excited to say the least," Gay told reporters in Sacramento before the Kings hosted the Dallas Mavericks on Monday night. "I have a couple guys with me that came with me. Its a new beginning. Ive been saying it all day. They have a lot of young pieces and Im glad to be a part of it." Gay averaged 19.4 points per game, 7.4 rebounds and 2.2 assists for the Raptors this season. The move will free up significant cap space for the Raptors. The six-foot-eight, 230-pound Gay was the Raptors highest paid player with a contract that pays him US$17.8 million this season with a $19.3-million player option for next season. The team also announced Monday that it has waived back-up point guard D.J. Augustin. A first-round pick of the Houston Rockets in 2006, Gay came to Toronto from Memphis on January 30 in a three-team deal that sent Ed Davis to the Grizzlies and Jose Calderon to Detroit. Gay posted averages of 19.5 points, 6.8 rebounds and 35.0 minutes in 51 contests (50 starts) with Toronto. Gay scored 20 or more points 27 times for the Raptors, with four games of 30 or more points. He was ranked second on the Raptors in scoring (19.5) and rebounds (7.4) this season. While Gay often put up big scoring numbers, it often took him a lot of shots to do it. This season has been particularly troubling as Gay has a 38.8 per cent field goal percentage, well off his career average of 44.7 per cent. "To be fair on Rudy, he wasnt having the normal shooting years that hes had," Ujiri said. "He was going through a tough stretch I think. "That wasnt necessarily the case on what made our decision. I think it was more of just chemistry. Everyone could see there wasnt much sync there." Ujiri has wasted no time putting his stamp on this team. Marcus Morris Jersey. Just 19 games into the 2013-14 season, the team is already looking vastly different to the squad that ended the last campaign. One of Ujiris first moves as GM was to trade out-of-favour forward-centre Andrea Bargnani -- once considered the future of the franchise -- to the New York Knicks. Like Gay, Bargnani was considered difficult to move because his contributions did not match his hefty contract. Others gone after last season include Alan Anderson, John Lucas III, Linas Kleiza and Sebastian Telfair. The other players Sacramento gets in the deal are role players off the bench. Acy, at 6-7, 225-pounds, is averaging 2.7 points and 2.1 rebounds off the bench. The 23-year-old is making just $788,872 with one year left on his contract after being drafted 37th overall by the Raptors in 2012. Gray, a seven-foot, 270-pound 29-year-old bench player, is averaging 1.3 points and two assists. Hes in the last year of a contract that pays him $2.6 million. He scored a career-high 22 points with the Raptors on January 28 versus Golden State. The player who should make the biggest impact on the Raptors coming the other way is likely Vasquez. The six-foot-six, 211-pound guard is known as a decent ball distributor, which should help a team ranked dead last in the league in assists. Vasquez has averaged 9.8 points, 1.9 rebounds, 5.3 assists and 25.8 minutes in 18 games with the Kings this season. Vasquez played with Memphis and New Orleans prior to joining the Kings. In 232 career games (123 starts), he has averaged 9.0 points, 5.6 assists, 2.7 rebounds and 24.6 minutes. "Hes a tough kid, great basketball IQ," Ujiri said. "Hell give us something, and were happy to bring him in as a piece and see what he can bring to this organization." The native of Caracas, Venezuela, brings a cap hit of $2.1 million. His contract expires at the end of the season. Salmons, 33, is a 12-year NBA veteran who has serviceable career averages of 9.8 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists, though that drops to 5.8 points, 2.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists so far this season. He may be best known in Toronto for entering a verbal agreement to play here in 2006, before backing out and joining Sacramento instead. "I didnt really feel (Toronto) was where God was leading me," Salmons said at the time. With a cap hit of $7.5 million to Toronto this season with $7 million more in 2014-15, the 6-7, 210-pound Salmons is the most expensive player coming from the Kings The 30-year-old Hayes, a 6-6, 250 pounder, makes $5.7 million this season and $5.9 million next season. He averages 2.1 points and 2.9 rebounds. Patterson, a 6-9, 235-pound 24-year-old, makes $3.1 million this season while averaging 6.9 points and 5.8 rebounds. Discount NFL Jerseys China NFL Jerseys White Cheap NFL Jerseys China China Womens NFL Jerseys Wholesale NFL Womens Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Discount NFL Jerseys ' ' '
