Julius Randle’s 36 lead Lakers past LeBron’s Cavs, 127-113

“It was something I always knew I could do,” Randle said. “I’m not surprised, but it feels good.”

I.T. PROFESSIONAL: Thomas also shone in his first game against the Cavs since they ended their brief attempt to replace Kyrie Irving with the undersized scoring machine.

Stephen Curry sprained his tricky ankle again last Thursday and hasn’t played since. The uncertainty about his availability moving forward caused him to slide a few slots.

Kyrie Irving sat out last Monday with a knee injury, returned to play for the rest of the week, then missed the second half of Sunday’s game and publicly stated that he might sit out for a while to rest. There seems to be pushback from the Boston Celtics on this front, and it’s unknown how much time he may miss, but the uncertainty cost him about 15 slots in the rankings.

Ricky Rubio flashed star-level production last month in the early part of the Utah Jazz’s winning streak, but then got hurt and came back rusty. He’s back to flashing greatness again, and it’s enough to get him a raise up into the top 60.

Eichel says he’d like to start playing as soon as possible. But he adds it’s premature to pick a specific game. He says the timetable will depend on his conditioning level and how his ankle responds to the lengthy on-ice session Tuesday.

The Sabres are off until Thursday, when they host the Toronto Maple Leafs. Buffalo sits last in the Eastern Conference standings and is all but mathematically eliminated from playoff contention.

Eichel has been skating on his own for the past 10 days. He’s missed 14 games since he was hurt in a 4-2 win at Boston on Feb. 10.

Eichel still leads the Sabres with 22 goals and 53 points despite playing just 55 games.

The Sabres recalled goalie Linus Ullmark from the minors. Coach Phil Housley Cheap Bike Jerseys For Men says the promotion is based on merit, and he plans to have Ullmark start in one of Cheap College Jerseys Buffalo’s upcoming games.

He said with no featured sets, it can still lead to a night like he had against the LA Clippers on Friday, when he had 15 points on 6 for 15 shooting. Then he added, It can go like that or it can go like the Laker game.

Smith didn’t know if the change was a direct reaction to his poor night against the Lakers.

My performance has been steady — it has not been great, it’s been a lot of bad shooting nights — so it’s been a pretty steady pace, Smith said.

When asked again about the timing of the change, Lue was tight-lipped.

I decided to do it today, Lue said. Next question.

The teams then traded goals early in the third, with Meier scoring on the power play when he deflected a shot from Mikkel Boedker and Zetterberg answering for Detroit off a nice pass from Nyquist.

That goal moved Zetterberg into sole possession of fifth place for the Red Wings with his 336th, breaking a tie with Ted Lindsay.

Ted means a lot to me, so passing him and doing it in this building too where I played my first NHL game is really special, Zetterberg said.

We need to understand there is a certain type of game that’s being played right now, Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. We’ve given the opposition too many gifts. Those are mental breakdowns that have to be corrected.

He confirmed the deal in an Instagram post Monday.

IM BACK?? I would like to thank the entire @seahawks organization from Paul Allen to John Schneider and Pete Carrol for believing in me and giving me an opportunity to continue living out my dream. Finally thank you to the city of Seattle for accepting me with open arms. It’s time to get back on TOP!

“People don’t understand, I was still hurt with my Achilles injury, so now I’m Cheap NFL Jerseys Paypal finally healthy. I was able to really just revamp my whole self, just Cheap Authentic NHL Jerseys focus on basketball and be able to just work out. So when I was in China, I just felt like I was at Oak Hill [Academy] again, just working on my game and trying to get to that level again.”

Marchand (3g, 2a) helps Bruins beat Red Wings 6-5 in OT

Brad Marchand has become Mr. Overtime for the Bruins.

Not just this season, but in franchise history.

Anthony Mantha had two goals and two assists for Detroit, which has lost four straight, seven of nine and 17 of 26 since it last topped .500 on Jan. 5.

Jared Coreau was beaten by the first two shots he faced and stopped just 12 of 16 shots before he was replaced 3:27 into the second period. Jimmy Howard faced 19 shots and saved 17 of them.

“It was nice to get that chance right away and bury it,” Toews said. “Overtime can go either way, and it’s usually one great scoring chance to the next.”

“That was a pretty good play,” coach Joel Quenneville said. “A great pass and a great shot. Good ending there.”

Chicago’s Jean-Francois Berube stopped 33 shots and Erik Gustafsson connected in the first as the fading Blackhawks won for the second time in five games.

Berube was sharp in his fourth game since being called up from Rockford of the AHL. The Blackhawks have been without injured No. 1 goalie Corey Crawford since Dec. 23.

“Every time you go in the net you try to showcase yourself,” Berube said. “For me, it’s `Take it one game at a time and play the game I can play and let the result unfold.”

Hall extended his point-scoring streak to 19 games, Travis Zajac scored two power-play goals and the Devils snapped a three-game skid with a 6-4 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday night.

Hall’s consecutive-points streak is the longest in the NHL this season. Hall, who had two assists, has recorded points in his last 26 appearances dating to Jan. 2. He missed three games before the All-Star break with a thumb injury during that span.

“It’s cool. It seems like everything is kind of bouncing the right way when I’m out there, especially on the power play lately,” Hall said. “So it’s great to chip in, great to contribute, and I’m out there to get points, score goals and play well that way, so I want to keep it going. At the end of the day, I just want to be on a team that gets into the playoffs.”

Stefan Noesen, Blake Coleman, Patrick Maroon and Brian Boyle also scored for Cheap Authentic NHL Jerseys the Basketball Jerseys For Sale Devils. Keith Kinkaid made 29 saves as New Jersey solidified its grip on the first wild-card slot in the Eastern Conference.
