wangshi is on a distinguished road
The Riders won, the stadium erupted, and Jack and his parents went wild.

NEW YORK, N. Marqise Lee Jersey .Y. - Kevin Durant scored 29 points, Russell Westbrook had a triple-double by the middle of the third quarter, and the Oklahoma City Thunder rolled to a 123-94 victory Wednesday over the New York Knicks, who played without Carmelo Anthony. The Durant-Anthony showdown between the NBAs top two scorers was cancelled because of Anthonys sprained left ankle, so the Thunder had the Christmas spotlight all to themselves while winning for the 10th time in 11 games. Westbrook finished with 14 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists in his first triple-double of the season and seventh of his career. Serge Ibaka added 24 points on 10-of-14 shooting. Amare Stoudemire scored a season-high 22 points, and Tim Hardaway Jr. had 21 for the Knicks, who also were missing starting point guard Raymond Felton. J.R. Smith scored 20 points, but shot 8 for 22 and was booed when he left the court for good. Anthony was forced to sit out for the first time this season. The Knicks were never really in it without him and may not have had a chance with him the way the Thunder played. The Knicks not only had trouble with the Thunder, but also with the special edition sleeved jerseys NBA teams are wearing on Christmas. Beno Udrih hit the side of the backboard on two shot attempts in the first half, tugging on his sleeve after the second as if blaming his struggles on his equipment. Oklahoma City had a much easier time in the uniforms. Coach Scott Brooks said before the game the Thunder hadnt had a formal practice in them, but players had shot around the last few days in the jerseys that featured a giant logo in the middle of the chest and jersey numbers on the left sleeve. "They look great. Hopefully, we play well in them," Brooks said. They played superbly. Coming off a 104-98 loss to Toronto on Sunday that ended a nine-game winning streak and was their first setback at home this season, they shot 54 per cent and got 18 points from Reggie Jackson. Durant made all five shots in the first quarter, with the Thunder leading 35-29 after shooting 70 per cent. Jackson and Durant made 3-pointers to start the second, making Oklahoma City 16 of 22. Ibaka did most of the work in an 8-2 spurt midway through the period that extended the lead to 52-35, and the Thunder led 60-46 at halftime. They kept up the pressure in the third, Durant and Westbrook taking turns being unguardable on the perimeter, and Oklahoma City went on to its sixth straight road victory. Anthony was hurt Monday night in a victory at Orlando, saying afterward he hoped to play Wednesday. But he looked glum and wasnt walking particularly well by the locker room area after getting treatment and testing the ankle, and the Knicks announced he wouldnt be in uniform about 50 minutes before the start. He sat on the bench wearing a brown sports jacket, getting up slowly during timeouts whenever the Knicks called them in a futile attempt to stop the Thunders onslaught. Anthony averaged 28.7 points last season, ending Durants three-year reign as scoring champion, but Durant has moved right back to the top this season with 28.1 to Anthonys 26.3. The Knicks fell to 0-7 in orange uniforms this season. Notes: Chris Smith, J.R.s brother, made his NBA debut with a scoreless minute at the end. ... Kenyon Martin returned to the Knicks after missing five games with a strained left abdominal muscle. ... Knicks coach Mike Woodson said he thought Felton (strained right groin) would see more doctors Thursday, perhaps getting a better idea how long he would be out. The Knicks were also without Metta World Peace, who has been battling a sore left knee. Jason Myers Jersey . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. Stefan Charles Jersey . The 21-year-old Wickham headed Sunderland into a 26th-minute lead --to add to the double he scored at Manchester City and his strike in last weekends win at Chelsea -- and then sealed the win with a late header. http://www.authenticjaguarslockroom.com/ . Correia pitched six innings of one-run ball, Eduardo Escobar homered, and the Minnesota Twins pulled away late to beat the Colorado Rockies 9-3 on Saturday.As part of the CFL ON TSNs Thanksgiving Day pre-game show, the network highlighted an inspirational story thats touched the hearts of many around the league. Jack & Brian is a TSN Original Feature that tells the tale of the friendship forged through football between Saskatchewan Roughriders Brian Peters and a young boy from Chicago named Jack Marshall. Fronted by Brian Williams and directed by Ross Rheaume, the feature aired yesterday afternoon in the lead-up to the Thanksgiving Day matchup between the Roughriders and the Montreal Alouettes. Rheaume provided this description of the making of the feature: There are several pretty amazing moments in the Jack Marshall and Brian Peters story, moments that make you pause and ask, Can this really be true? A boy who was told hed never walk again, inspired by a football player to prove everyone wrong. When he beats the odds and attends the last football game of the season, that player makes the game-saving fumble recovery. It might seem unbelievable, but what Ive found in shooting this feature over the last couple months, however, is that the closer you get to their story, the more you begin to think, Thats just typical Jack and Brian. When I read the 2011 article on Jack and Brian by Lake The Posts, and watched the subsequent Big Ten Network feature online, I was inspired to find out more. My main question was, Whats their relationship like now, three years later? From the moment I got on the phone with Jacks mother, Joanna, it was clear nothing had changed. BP, as hes referred to by the Marshall family, flew down to Jacks school and surprised all the kids after he won the Grey Cup last year. Blake Bortles Jersey. He went to Jacks birthday party as well. I had to be ready to get off the phone at any minute because BP might be calling in from Regina to ask about Jacks baseball game. Or maybe to chat about Jacks ongoing rehab. Or maybe just to chat about guy stuff. Theyre still best buds. When the Riders caught wind of the story and wanted to help surprise Jack with a jersey and tickets to a game, our feature cameras were given a unique opportunity to be there in-the-moment as a new chapter of Jack and Brians story was written. Normally, we recount stories that have happened in the past, but this time, we were going to experience this great friendship in real time. The rest is right there in the feature: Jack surprised Brian on the field before the game and got his wish to cheer his hero alongside Rider Nation. A Chicago kid living out his dream in Regina. Great story, right? We were in for something more. In overtime, the Riders needed a big play to prevent a game-tying field goal. As the kick went up, a hand reached above the fray and blocked it. The Riders won, the stadium erupted, and Jack and his parents went wild. Amid the sea of euphoria on the sideline, Brian Peters emerged, pointed up to Jack in the stands, and waved him and his family down to the sideline. As Jack got to the rail, Brian handed him his game-worn gloves and said, I blocked it. Typical Jack and Brian. Check out the video above to watch the TSN Original Feature Jack & Brian.
