#1 an three decades and giving up a lot of his free tim von love520 23.08.2019 05:54

Februarys All-Star Weekend in New Orleans is a long way away. Yet when it comes to Aaron Gordon and Zach LaVine, everyone is already thinking about it and what might come. The two players who stole the show -- stole the whole All-Star Weekend in Toronto -- are still making their victory laps it seems.Neither LaVine nor Gordon is ready to commit to the Slam Dunk Contest in February. But the two-time dunk champion and his greatest challenger will meet on the court for the first time since that Saturday in Toronto when the Minnesota Timberwolves (1-5) visit the Orlando Magic (3-4) at Amway Center on Wednesday.The two players have been tied together more since that epic back-and-forth dunk contest. They ended up at promotional stops together in China during the offseason. They were part of a Nike commercial together, where naturally they were throwing each other alley-oops.Were both very casual, relaxed dudes, Gordon said after practice Tuesday. We chop it up, joke about it and laugh about it. We both know we put on a show.Gordon and LaVine indeed put on a show with their back-and-forth display of incredible athleticism that made the dunk contest the talk of the entire weekend. Many people believed Gordon should have won the contest. Even Zach LaVine has said he thought they should split the trophy.The two are still creating highlights on a nightly basis. Gordon busted out a 360 dunk in-game last week at Philadelphia and has some hair-raising dunks and alley-oops already.But the question for these two young players next is how do they turn their dunk contest success into actual production on the court?LaVine so far has looked like he is beginning to find his fit. Now relieved of Minnesotas point guard experiment, LaVine is averaging 17.7 points per game and is shooting 41.7 percent from beyond the arc.He scored 31 points in a game against the Memphis Grizzlies last week and had 17 points in the Timberwolves 119-110 loss in Brooklyn on Tuesday.I think each year hes gotten better, coach Tom Thibodeau told Derek James of ESPN 1500 in Minneapolis following the win over the Grizzlies last week. Hes comfortable and puts a lot of work into his game. He spends a lot of time shooting. I think he has a much better understanding of the NBA game now and I think theres a lot of room for him to grow, too. I think he can be terrific defensively.Gordon too has had to evolve his game. He has found that process a little more difficult.The Magic are testing him out at the small forward position and playing him on the perimeter more. With the increased playing time and role, he is averaging 11.6 points per game and shooting a career-best 36.4 percent from beyond the arc. There are still plenty of hiccups and inefficiencies in the 21-year-olds game.Both LaVine and Gordon, though, are young. Their insane athleticism is a reminder of that. The two are forever bound in that incredible evening in Toronto.Now the two are looking to expand their games and help their young teams take the next step closer to the playoffs. Nike Air Force 1 High Herr . The lawyers filed a 33-page amended complaint Tuesday in federal court in Manhattan, expanding on the suit originally filed Oct. 3 in New York Supreme Court. Arbitrator Fredric Horowitz last week refused to compel Selig to testify in the grievance, and Rodriguez then walked out of the hearing without testifying. Nike Air Huarache Sverige . The defending champion beat Gael Monfils of France 7-6 (6), 6-3, while second-seeded Andy Murray of Britain dispatched Edouard Roger-Vasselin, also of France, 6-3, 6-3. Making his first appearance since injuring his wrist a month ago, Del Potro had difficulty with his service games in the first set. http://www.airforceonesverige.com/nike-air-huarache-sverige/herr.html .C. - The Carolina Hurricanes have placed backup goalie Anton Khudobin on injured reserve with an unspecified lower-body injury.

Nike Tanjun Herr Rea . 8 Iowa State on Saturday, sending the Cyclones to their third consecutive loss. The Longhorns (14-4, 3-2) got their biggest win of the season with their third in the row in the Big 12.The Pittsburgh Penguins were overwhelmed by the Boston Bruins in Game Two, dropping a 6-1 decision at home Monay night, leaving the Bruins to return home with a two games to none lead in the Eastern Conference Final. Penguins G Tomas Vokoun was pulled after allowing three goals on 12 shots. The second goal was a bit of a sloppy play around the goal that he might have been able to cover, but the first goal was a breakaway effort by Brad Marchand and the third was a one-timer from the hash marks by David Krejci after the Bruins dangled their way into scoring position with two drop passes on a three-on-two attack. Marc-Andre Fleury didnt fare any better in net for Pittsburgh, allowing three goals on 17 shots. Had Fleury come in and at least stabilized the Penguins goaltending situation, it could have prompted a change for the Penguins. As it is, Fleury could still get the start in Game Three, but nothing in his performance from Game Two would suggest that hes the solution to the Penguins current woes. No, the goaltending was only a portion of Pittsburghs problems in Game Two. For example, C Sidney Crosby had a game-high four giveaways while LW James Neal and D Kris Letang were both minus-3. Bruins LW Brad Marchand scored a pair of goals, was plus-4 and led the Bruins with four shots on goal; all in his playoff-low 144:41 of ice time.dddddddddddd C Patrice Bergeron (1 G, 1 A), RW Jaromir Jagr (2 A) and D Johnny Boychuk (1 G, 1 A) all had a couple points and were plus-3. There had been some speculation prior to the game that Jagr might be a scratch, so good call to keep him in the lineup. Bruins RW Nathan Horton also had a couple points (1 G, 1 A) and was plus-2. Horton leads the playoffs with a plus-19 rating in 14 games. Bruins C David Krejci added a goal, extending his playoff lead with 20 points. Through two home games in this series, Crosby, Letang, Evgeni Malkin, Jarome Iginla, Chris Kunitz, James Neal and Pascal Dupuis have combined for zero points and a minus-24 rating. Its cliche to say a teams best player need to be their best players, but the Penguins stars have to get a whole lot better immediately if Pittsburgh is going to climb out of this 2-0 hole. It would be too soon for the Bruins to feel comfortable, but heading home with a 2-0 lead against a Penguins team that is rattled and appeared disinterested at times in Game Two, is a far better position than they could have reasonably expected to be coming into the series.
