MIAMI -- When the Utah Jazz (6-4) invade AmericanAirlines Arena on Saturday night, they will be looking to beat the Miami Heat (2-5) and put an exclamation point on what has so far been an excellent road trip. Nike Air Max Plus Tn Ultra Black .When the Jazz left home a little more than a week ago, they were a .500 team at 3-3. But they have since gone 3-1, including an 87-74 win over the Orlando Magic on Friday night.Saturdays game will be Utahs fifth in seven nights.You have to be mentally tough, Jazz shooting guard Rodney Hood told the media. This is the end of the trip. We have to be smart and focused.An interesting aspect of this winning road trip is that most of it has been accomplished without starting point guard George Hill, who is second on the team in scoring (20.4) and first in assists (5.0).Hill has missed the past three games due to a sprained right thumb, and the 30-year-old veteran was the teams key offseason acquisition.Dante Exum, a 6-6 Australian and the No. 5 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, has been starting in Hills place, although his numbers this season are modest -- 6.3 points, 1.7 assists.Fortunately for the Jazz, 6-8 small forward Gordon Hayward just keeps getting better -- he has led Utah in scoring in each of the past three years. This season, he is leading again, averaging 25.7 points.Hood, a 6-6 former Duke star, is also improving. He averaged 8.5 points as a rookie, 14.5 points last season and is at 17.9 this year. Derrick Favors (10.6 points, 7.6 rebounds) is a solid veteran at power forward and is capable of more -- he averaged 16.4 points last season.Rounding out the Utah starting lineup is 7-1 French center Rudy Gobert, who is nearly averaging a double-double -- 9.3 points, 10.3 rebounds and 2.2 blocks.Gobert, who will be a restricted free agent after this season, should have an interesting matchup on Saturday against Heat center Hassan Whiteside, who got paid this past summer.Whiteside, who signed a four-year, $98 million extension with Miami, is averaging 17.9 points and 14.7 rebounds -- monster numbers.Still, Whitesides heroics are not enough for the Heat, who are on a three-game losing streak. The skid could have been six in a row had Miami not escaped with an overtime win over the Sacramento Kings.Whiteside stated what is pretty obvious, that there has been a talent drain on the Heat and that losing Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh off of last seasons team has hurt him in particular.With D-Wade, I never had to work on it, said Whiteside, explaining that his former teammate would often feed him lobs that led to easy dunks. He just saw it.Whiteside is still putting up impressive numbers -- he had 20 points and a season-high 20 rebounds on Thursday against the Chicago Bulls. But the lob dunks arent there as much, and Miami lacks the perimeter shooting to make teams pay for sagging and doubling on Whiteside.If teams collapse on Hassan, we have to be ready to make a play, said Miamis Justise Winslow, who could be emerging as a point forward. We would love to get Hassan lobs. But we have to read the defense and take what they give us. We cant force.Perhaps Saturday is the night the Heat break out of their slump. After all, the Jazz, who have former Heat forward Joe Johnson as part of their bench brigade, have talked openly about fatigue setting in at the end of this trip.Weve played a lot of games, Hayward said. It feels like weve been on the road for quite a while now. Nike Air Max Plus Tn Ultra Cheap .500 on the season. The Jets are now 0-5-1 in the second game of back-to-backs. The game started the same way the Vancouver game started the night before, with the Jets taking the first two penalties of the game and killing off the first, but the Oilers getting on the board first, scoring on the second man-advantage. Cheap Nike Air Max Tn Womens .C. -- Manny Malhotra had two goals and an assist, leading the Carolina Hurricanes to a 6-3 win over the Ottawa Senators on Saturday. http://www.airmaxplustnultratiger.com/ . Howard Ganz, an MLB lawyer, said in a letter to U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos that Rodriguezs claims do not come "remotely close" to what is needed to overturn an arbitration decision in federal court. EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Ryan Nassib had a big chance to show everyone what he could do as New York Giants quarterback with Eli Manning getting the night off.He blew it after a good first quarter.Nassib was consistent in leading the Giants on a game-opening touchdown drive and cashing in on an interception in staking New York to a 10-point lead.But his three second-quarter turnovers led to 17 points in the Miami Dolphins 27-10 victory in the preseason opener Friday night.The start of the game was delayed 51 minutes by weather, pushing back the coaching debuts of Ben McAdoo of the Giants and Adam Gase of the Dolphins.Neither coach had a lot to be happy about in a game marked by turnovers and penalties.Miami had nine penalties for 61 yards and one turnover. New York had four turnovers and seven penalties for 56 yards.A 3-yard run by Rashad Jennings and a 20-yard field goal by Josh Brown following an interception by Jonathan Casillas staked New York to its first-quarter lead.Nassib turned over the ball on three consecutive second-quarter possessions to give the Dolphins the lead.Bobby McCains interception led to a 49-yard field goal by Andrew Franks. A fumble and return by Spencer Paysinger set up Damien Williams 5-yard TD run, and an interception by A.J. Hendy led to a 51-yard TD pass from Matt Moore to Matt Hazel.Marshall Koehn added a 28-yard field goal in the third quarter and Zac Dysert capped the scoring with a fourth-down, 16-yard pass to Thomas Duarte, a score that followed a fumble by third-string quarterback Logan Thomas.QB COMPARISONDolphins: Ryan Tannehill finished 2 of 4 for 8 yards. Moore was 10 of 14 for 122 yards and a touchdown. Brandon Doughty, the seventh-round pick from Western Kentucky, finished up and looked good, hitting 7 of 9 for 66 yards.Giants: Nassib finished 7 of 15 for 75 yards with the three turnovers in a performance that will not inspire confidence that he would be able to step in and replace Manning. After holding the ball for more than 18 minutes in the first half, the offense was limited to nine minutes of possession in the second.ROOKIE WATCHDolphins: Dolphins first-round pick LLaremy Tunsil didnt start, but played most of the game at left guard and held his own. Nike Tn Air Max Plus. Leonte Carroo, the former Rutgers star who was Miamis third-round pick, had three catches for 18 yards. Sixth-round pick Jakeem Grant had four catches for 68 yards.Giants: First-round pick cornerback Eli Apple played well until straining his lower leg. Second-round pick Sterling Shepard had one diving catch for 24 yards, setting up the Giants touchdown.POSITION BATTLESDolphins: Franks woke up the Dolphins offense with a 49-yard field goal in the second quarter. Koehn showed a good leg on kickoffs.Giants: Big games for the rookies. Apple, Shepard and S Darian Thompson are all going to contribute, along with MLB B.J. Goodson, who had seven tackles, including two for losses.NOT SO STEAMYThe late start and the pre-game rain dropped the temperature to 76 degrees at kickoff. The rain convinced McAdoo to sit Odell Beckham Jr.INJURY UPDATEDolphins: Grant (rib), S Shamiel Gary (neck), DE Chris McClain (elbow) and DE Julius Warmsley (concussion) did not return.Giants: Apple and Shepard were hurt in the first half and did not return. WR Geremy Davis pulled a hamstring in the second half. Veteran Victor Cruz was already out with a groin injury.QUOTABLEDolphins: The defense got their hands on the ball multiple times and turned the game around for us, Tannehill said. The offense, we didnt get much going in the first half, first or second group. But they started getting their hands on the ball and flipping the momentum and really got the game going for us.Giants: Ball security is the No. 1 priority and I didnt do a good job of it, said Nassib, who has thrown 10 NFL regular-season passes in his first three seasons. We have a lot to work on, but the turnovers are unacceptable. You never go into a game expecting to throw interceptions, obviously when you fail its disappointing and frustrating, but we have to bounce back and get back out there.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike Basketball Jerseys Hockey Jerseys China Supply Baseball Jerseys Football Jerseys Sale Authentic College Jerseys MLB Jerseys China Stitched Soccer Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Jerseys ' ' '
