LOS ANGELES -- Nate Robinson knew he would get a technical foul for hanging on the rim long after his dunk. Buy Saucony Grid 9000 . He stayed up there to underline a point. After a miserable month, the Denver Nuggets are having fun again -- this time at the expense of the struggling Los Angeles Lakers. Ty Lawson had 20 points and 12 assists, Timofey Mozgov added 20 points and seven rebounds, and the Nuggets beat Los Angeles 137-115 Sunday night for their second straight win after an eight-game skid. Robinson scored 21 points, while Wilson Chandler and Kenneth Faried added 17 apiece as the Nuggets dropped 77 points on the Lakers in the second half. Robinson defiantly rubbed it in with 2:37 to play, clinging to the rim after his dunk put the Nuggets up by 24 points. "We just found our niche and found our energy," said Robinson, who scored 12 during the Nuggets 44-point fourth quarter. "We had a tough month, you could say. Its just that time to turn a new leaf, and just continue to play like we did tonight, and hopefully we can have a snowball effect and we can go streaking again." With an overwhelming second-half performance, Denver earned a win for coach Brian Shaw in his first game back at Staples Center to face the Lakers as a head coach. The longtime Lakers guard and assistant coach was passed over for the top job in Los Angeles after Phil Jacksons departure. Shaw believes the last few days have been cathartic for the Nuggets, who frayed at the seams during their skid. They played their third straight game without point guard Andre Miller, who is on personal leave until Monday after clashing with Shaw on the bench Wednesday night. "Stress, grieving, whatever it is, if you hold it in, it will eat you up from the inside," Shaw said. "I thought we aired out a lot of things, and that clarified for everyone where they stood. ... Two-game win streak, but its night and day from what it was prior to those last two games." Seven Nuggets scored in double figures in their fifth consecutive win over Los Angeles, scoring the most points by any Lakers opponent this season. Denver easily took control with a 17-2 run early in the fourth quarter, remaining unbeaten against the Lakers since November 2012. The Nuggets outrebounded Los Angeles 58-38 and hit 12 3-pointers, while the Lakers went 3 for 21 on long-distance shots. Pau Gasol had 25 points, 10 rebounds and five assists amid another round of trade rumours with the injury-battered Lakers, who have lost seven of eight. The 7-foot Spaniard has been sought by Cleveland in recent days for what essentially would be a money-saving move by the wealthy Lakers, and he acknowledges the uncertainty isnt helpful. Gasol said he played with "just a love for the game and a sense of pride and loyalty to my teammates and myself. I wanted to play my best and give it everything I have." Fourth-string point guard Kendall Marshall had nine points and a career-high 17 assists in his second straight start for the Lakers, who are without Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Steve Blake and Jordan Farmar due to injury. Marshall set a franchise record with 32 assists in his first two starts for Los Angeles. "I think we kind of unraveled a bit, and they kept coming and kept scoring and kept hitting difficult shots," Marshall said. At 14-20, Los Angeles chances of a playoff run are already waning in the continued absence of Bryant, who expressed dismay about the latest uncertainty around his 7-foot Spanish teammate before the game. Los Angeles has lost seven of its last nine games at Staples Center, but will play just one home game in the next 22 days. "Its tough. Theres no sugarcoating it," Lakers coach Mike DAntoni said. "Were in a hole, and we put ourselves in this hole. Well get guys coming back (from injury). We just have to keep playing hard, keep your head down, go through it." NOTES: Dozens of Auburn football fans watched the game from Staples Centers lower bowl on the night before the BCS championship game at the Rose Bowl. A luxury suite full of fans chanted slogans and held up an orange banner reading "War Eagle." ... Lakers C Robert Sacre needed five stitches to close a cut on his lower lip late in the first half. ... Eddie Murphy, Jessica Alba and Mark Wahlberg attended the game. Saucony Shadow 6000 Womens . Maximilian Arnold put Wolfsburg ahead in the eighth minute, when the stationary Fallou Diagne allowed him to guide Patrick Ochs cross beyond the helpless Freiburg goalkeeper, and Ivica Olic doubled the lead three minutes later after Luiz Gustavo did well to set him up. http://www.sauconyshoesoutletsale.com/mens-womens-saucony-shadow-5000-og-suede-pack-grey-blue-running-shoes.html . The win puts Arsenal four points clear of Everton in fourth place with two games to play in the Premier League, a position which would qualify the club for Europes top competition for the 17th straight year. http://www.sauconyshoesoutletsale.com/men-s-women-s-saucony-shadow-6000-running-shoes-deep-grey-pink-mint.html . In the days leading up to the draft, TSN.ca and TSN Radio basketball analyst Duane Watson looks at some of the names that will be headlining the event. Watch the 2014 NBA Draft on TSN, Thursday at 7pm et/4pm pt.This week is always one of the best weeks of the CFL season because it is the annual "reassess and move forward" evaluation of what has happened and what all teams hope to happen. Once the Labour Day weekend is over the second season starts and the run for the Grey Cup heats up, even for the teams that seem so far away from the top. For Montreal, the quarterback carousel started with Troy Smith, transitioned to Alex Brink and now it looks like Jonathan Crompton will get his shot. Crompton is a big kid for a quarterback and at six-foot-four and 225 pounds his physical size will enhance his durability. He throws hard with and his accuracy has been good, so far. It is very difficult to find a quarterback and win games but perhaps this third time is going to be the right time. A lot of the other aspects of Alouettes football are already there but not at the most important position. I dont think Montreal can wait and hope for a player to emerge from another source other than their own program. To learn and master a playbook in the 11 weeks remaining is unrealistic; possible but not likely. So, for Crompton this is a phenomenal opportunity to establish himself and work on a career. I honestly though Troy Smith was the guy, I was optimistic for Alex Brink. This time I will say: "Take it and make it happen" to Crompton. With two straight home games against Ottawa and Hamilton you can ease into a leadership role as compared to the tougher competition of Calgary and Edmonton. It is amazingly difficult to win games and find a quarterback at the same time but that is the challenge for Montreal for the rest of the season. With Winnipeg the 24-16 win over Montreal was the fourth time Drew Willy and the Bombers offence had to come from behind and win in the fourth quarter. At 6-3 they are right in the middle of everything and with the Riders home-and-away if they win two they will battle for first all year long. If they lose their next two games their playoffs will start on the road, in some capacity. Game 2 of Week 9 just completed was Edmontons 41-27 win over Toronto at home. The Argos had pass protection problems for the second week in a row. As a team, you protect Ricky Ray. He is going to work down the field consistently and surgically. If you dont, he cant. Ray is a good athlete but I would not say a great athlete. Without the element of time you cant expect him to "take a game over" athletically. Edmonton is looking really good. I am most impressed with their depth at running back and receiver. When Chris Jones was in Toronto he had an influence on personnel. Now, in Edmonton I am sure he has more than an influence. Edmonton has done an exceptional job on the talent assessment test. When JC Sherritt is battling for playing time and when your third running back - Tyler Thomas from the National power, Baconee - comes in and stars it sure is impressive. http://www.sauconyshoesoutletsale.com/saucony-running-shoes-men-s-women-s-grid-9000-premium-royal-black-s70196-1.html. Ed Hervey and Chris Jones are working well together and their entire personnel department has performed. Matt Nichols has looked good and who would ever have anticipated Eddie Steele from University of Manitoba to be such an impact player? Another team that is very good with personnel is Calgary. Beating the best is critical but beating the teams you should beat is just as important. I though Calgary just systematically wore Ottawa down. Quarter by quarter they became stronger and quarter by quarter the Redblacks faded. I hope the fans continue to support the Redblacks as they have done all summer. It is unlikely this team will go on an extended winning streak and dominate in the playoffs but I do see progression. Henry Burris has to play better throwing the ball. A spectacular receiver needs to be found and a couple of defensive backs. As Montreal is trying win and trying to find a quarterback the Redblacks face a similar dilemma. As an organization have to be careful with the NFL cut situation. Too many changes will hurt their opportunity to win, not enough changes will also hurt. There will be tough evaluations over the next two weeks and for the team to improve efficiency, the decisions must be correct. The final game of the week saw Saskatchewan beat B.C. 20-16. It was a very good game and, to be honest, we have not had enough of them. Heres another reason for a single nine-team league: Solomon Elimimian and John Chick are the two best defensive players in the league right now. If the CFL Awards happened tomorrow one of them would not even be considered and that is not right due to East-West representation. One nine-team league would not only give you the best teams with the best records but would also give you the most accurate representation of who is the best at their position. Still, full compliments go to the Riders for their win. The first time the two teams played, B.C. ran for 184 yards but this time they only managed 58. The first time Andrew Harris ran for 138; this time only 11. Richie Hall as a defensive coordinator is very proud of his guys stepping up to the challenge of a good Lions team that features Harris, Stefan Logan and Tim Brown. I will be very interested to see the decision to be made on Travis Lulay. He should be ready for sure in the next two weeks but how do you tell Kevin Glenn a change will happen? Glenn is one of the great people of the league but this must be difficult to swallow if Lulay takes over. Glenn does not have 10 years to play… at this point of his career it is year by year. No one ever said football was fair in any way. Opening week, Labour Day weekend, Thanksgiving weekend and, of course, the playoffs are my favorite event weekends of CFL football. Hopefully each game becomes an event in its own way. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
