FIVE QUICK NBA THOUGHTS 1. ATLANTA HAWKS: Incredible performance Sunday night against the Wizards. Absolutely kicked tail. They had eight guys in double figures and 34 assists. Atlanta has won 13 out of 14 and are by far the best team right now in the East. The Toronto Raptors had better be ready for these guys on Friday night. Raps have beaten them twice this year so theyll have their full attention. The Hawks are so sound and well coached. Love to watch them. These guys are for real. 2. TIMOFEY MOZGOV (Cavaliers): Had 14 and 12 with two blocks in an ugly loss on Sunday night. Love this pickup for Cleveland though. Hes an improving offensive player with good rebounding and shot blocking skills. Hell be a huge help when theyre totally healthy. That guy LeBron needs to get back soon. Cleveland has a record of 19-19 - who would have thought that back in the summer? 3. ZACH RANDOLPH (Grizzlies): Put up 27 and 17 in a double overtime win vs. Suns. Nice to have him back on the court. One of my favourite players to watch in the league. A beast. So tough to move in the post. Incredibly crafty and can score at will in there and has excellent mid-range game. You better bring your hard hat when you compete against him. Makes this club a tough out. 4. JEFF GREEN (Grizzles): Speaking of the Grizz, love this pickup for them. Always nice to wing scoring pop and he brings it. Solid defender as well when hes in the right system. Hes not a No. 1 or 2 scorer or a lead personality but in the right situation hes an ideal talented complementary piece. I think this is a nice situation for him. You never have enough wing talent in this league and I think this was a terrific get for Memphis. 5. CHRIS BOSH (Heat): In a season where he has missed eight games already its been a tough go for the Heat when hes not in the mix. 16-21 is not acceptable in Miami. He was fabulous in an upset of the Clippers with 34 and 7. Each game back he looks more and more like his old self. If he and D-Wade stay healthy, the Heat will still be heard from as a secondary team in the East. Do I see them being able to win a playoff round? Doubt it. No depth yet but theyre not an easy team to play when theyre healthy. http://www.teamcolombiasoccer.com/Blank-Copa-America-Jersey/. The 90-plus minutes of play are about trends and approach. http://www.teamcolombiasoccer.com/Jeison-Murillo-Copa-America-Jersey/. For the Miami Heat, that was outstanding news. LeBron James scored the last of his 32 points on a layup that put Miami up for good with 11. http://www.teamcolombiasoccer.com/Fredy-Guarin-Copa-America-Jersey/.Y. - Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby captured his second career Art Ross trophy on Sunday after leading the NHL in scoring this season. http://www.teamcolombiasoccer.com/Juan-Camilo-Zuniga-Copa-America-Jersey/. I kept my eyes focused up on the camera during each approach. I just tried to stay focused on my form, as I didnt know what the ball reaction was. I was quite emotional at the end. I did not actually see any of the shots in the game until I got home and watched the video. http://www.teamcolombiasoccer.com/Frank-Fabra-Copa-America-Jersey/.C. -- Kevin Harvick won his first career pole at Darlington Raceway on Friday as he looks to chase his first Southern 500. SAN FRANCISCO -- Tim Lincecum stood at his locker, sweat dripping from his sideburns beneath a grey beanie cap, trying to find the right words after possibly pitching his final game for the only team he knows. Or, maybe not. He would like to stay, just as he would like to keep his options open to the idea of free agency. Reflection made Lincecum uneasy after the San Francisco Giants beat the rival Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2 on Thursday night, when fans roared at every chance and waved signs to honour him. After the game, he tipped his cap in a rare gesture for the right-hander. Its not his style. "Thats the first or second time Ive ever done that," he said. "I just went with what most people do, and it worked." Angel Pagan hit a tiebreaking home run leading off the eighth inning to give San Francisco a win. He has won two World Series championships and a pair of NL Cy Young awards while pitching all seven of his big league seasons in the Bay Area. Catcher Buster Posey couldnt think of it being Lincecums last, and neither could manager Bruce Bochy. "Ive just been one of the most fortunate pitchers in this organization just to be a part of so many things," Lincecum said. "To have the guys around me, Barry Bonds, Randy Johnson, big names, Buster Posey coming up, Pablo Sandoval. The names just dont end. To be here to witness all the things theyve done, and be there for also the team things, its been pretty special for me." Meanwhile, former Giants closer Brian Wilson, now a Dodgers reliever, could be seen yelling at CEO Larry Baer near his box seat after the game over the World Series ring he was owed from 2012. San Francisco spokeswoman Staci Slaughter said the club tried many times to give Wilson his ring but he didnt respond, and he voiced his "displeasure" to Baer. So, Baer delivered the ring to Dodgers personnel outside the Los Angeles clubhouse. "Its just unfortunate because he was an important member of our organization," Slaughter said. Pagans fifth home run in an injury-shortened season was surrendered by losing pitcher Paco Rodriguez (3-3) and plunked off the top of an ambulance parked just beyond the fence in left field. Lincecum struck out Yasiel Puig three times among his six Ks, but missed a win against the NL West champion Dodgers. Santiago Casilla (7-2) earned the victory with a 1-2-3 eighth, while Sergio Romo pitched the ninth for his 38th save. Lincecum is wrapping up a $40.5 million, two-year contract that paid him $22 million this season. The 29-year-old right-hander allowed two runs and three hits in seven impressive innings. The NL Cy Young Award winnerr in 2008 and 09 and four-time All-Star was drafted 10th overall by the Giants in 2006.dddddddddddd He pitched a no-hitter July 13 at San Diego and pitched the 2010 World Series clincher at Texas as the club captured its first championship since moving West in 1958. He moved to the bullpen and became an effective reliever for last seasons title run. Lincecum received a roaring ovation from the sellout crowd of 41,221 when introduced before the game -- and several more times throughout. "I certainly hope Timmy is back with us," Bochy said. "Timmy has been a pleasure all my years here and I hope that continues." Lincecum allowed two doubles to begin the fourth, then struck out the next three batters. He followed up Barry Zitos victory in his likely Giants farewell a night earlier in a 6-4 win with another emotional outing for the franchise and its supporters. "It was pretty special," Lincecum said. "Just to be in that kind of like situation today, you kind of really see whats going on and the emotions that are tied with it. Im still trying to figure out how to handle it." Fans held large banners reading "We love U Timmy!" and "Timmy Dont Leave" and cheered when he ran off following a fifth-inning sacrifice. Pagan had an RBI groundout in the inning, Gregor Blanco walked and Brandon Belt hit a trying double to make it 2-2. "I thought that was one of the best sacrifice bunts I ever hit in my life," he joked. "That ovation was pretty special. I always have an awkward way of acknowledging it. I do have an appreciation and respect for the way they do (receive) me." After Adrian Gonzalez put the Dodgers ahead on a first-inning sacrifice fly, the Giants saved Lincecum a run in the second. Tim Federowicz was thrown out at home by left fielder Blanco as he tried to score on Puigs single. Dodgers starter Edinson Volquezs winless stretch reached seven starts since he beat the Mets on Aug. 17. He didnt beat the Giants in five tries this year. The Giants took the season series with their rivals 11-8, earning just their third series win at home in the second half in 13 tries. San Francisco third baseman Pablo Sandoval was scratched with flu-like symptoms, and Nick Noonan replaced him. NOTES: A moment of silence was held before the game for Jonathan Denver, a fan stabbed to death Wednesday night a few blocks from the ballpark. ... Lincecum is 9-6 with a 2.92 ERA in 23 career outings vs. L.A. ... Giants SS Brandon Crawford was awarded the "Good Guy" award by the local baseball writers chapter for his co-operation and good nature during the season. Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
