NEW ORLEANS - With breakaway dunks, putback dunks and even a banked 21-foot fade as he was fouled, Anthony Davis continued to make franchise history for the New Orleans Pelicans. Adidas NMD R2 φθηνα . Meanwhile, LeBron James played through back soreness, only to twist his ankle and see his two-time defending champion Miami Heat fall to a seventh loss in 11 games. Davis had 30 points, 11 rebounds and three steals giving him a franchise record three straight 30-point, 10-rebound games and the Pelicans pulled away in the fourth quarter for a 105-95 victory on Saturday night. "I dont care what I score as long as we win," Davis said. "But if it comes to me, Im not going to turn down any shots. Whoever has the hot hand, the team goes to them to make sure they stay in their groove." Davis, an All-Star in only his second pro season out of Kentucky, has been in a remarkable groove for someone who just turned 21 this month. He has scored at least 28 points and grabbed at least nine rebounds in eight straight games, the longest such streak since Shaquille ONeal did it 12 games in a row with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2001. "Hes spectacular. Hes getting better every single day," James said of Davis. "When you know youre a star and your team looks at you as a leader, as a star, you make plays and thats what hes doing." James twisted his right ankle while stepping on Pelicans guard Tyreke Evans foot during a drive to the hoop late in the third quarter. He remained in the game and finished with 25 points, nine assists and eight rebounds. It was not enough for Miami, which gave guard Dwyane Wade and centre Greg Oden the night off following Fridays victory at Memphis. "Put another injury on my list," James said. "It is what it is. Im not using it as an excuse." James thinks the Heat already have enough of them, and his annoyance was evident. "Its too many excuses. Everything is an excuse. We do something wrong, its an excuse. We dont get a stop, its an excuse. We turn the ball over, its an excuse," James said. "What were doing right now aint good enough. "Its very frustrating. Were all frustrated," James continued. "We just got to all get on the same page. I dont know what were going to do, but weve got to figure it out." One thing James made clear was that the solution would not entail more rest for him, despite his back and ankle soreness. "I dont have time to take off," he said. "We dont have time to take off." Pelicans guard Eric Gordon also sat out with a sore left knee, but New Orleans got 14 points from Evans, 12 from Al-Farouq Aminu and 11 from Luke Babbitt. Mario Chalmers scored 19 points and Michael Beasley 16 for Miami, which trailed for all but 18 seconds of the second half and trailed by as much as 16 in the fourth quarter. "Yes, our locker room is angry," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "Were not accustomed to this type of play, these type of standards, particularly on the defensive end, and if we want to change, we have to look inward." Babbitt was making his first start of the season and hit three 3-pointers. The Pelicans were 7 of 17 from long range and hit 51 per cent (43 of 84) of their shots from the field. Miami shot 50.7 per cent (37 of 73), but turned the ball over 16 times, leading to 19 New Orleans points. New Orleans, which has won two straight, also outrebounded Miami 38-33. Toney Douglas started for Wade, but was called for his fourth foul after turning the ball over to Davis early in the third quarter and played only 13:52. The Pelicans led 76-72 after three periods, but began to pull away early in the fourth even as Davis was resting on the bench. Anthony Morrow, who had 10 points, hit his second 3 to give New Orleans an 85-76 lead with nine minutes left. Davis checked in shortly after, and put the Pelicans up 92-78 on a 21-foot bank shot as he was fouled by Chris Andersen. Miami opened the game on a 10-2 run, which turned out to be its biggest lead of the game. Then the Heat got sloppy. The Pelicans scored off of turnovers by James, Udonis Haslem and Chris Bosh during a 15-3 run, highlighted by Davis steal from Bosh for a breakaway dunk. Davis had 14 points in the first half, and his putback dunk put New Orleans up 43-38 before Ray Allens 3 and James 19-foot fadeaway helped pull Miami to 45-43 at halftime. Notes: The Pelicans victory was their first over Miami since November 2010. ... Bosh finished with 12 points for the Heat and Allen had 10. Adidas NMD R2 Greece .ca. Mr. Fraser, It looks like Martin Brodeur is coming back to play for the Blues. I was wondering if you have any great stories or fond memories of your time on the ice with Brodeur - in the NHL, or maybe even the Olympics.

The 30-year-old Canadian forward smiled as he captured the chilly scene, which took him all the way back to when he first learned to skate at his grandparents farm. "As I grew up, there was an outdoor rink right beside by the main rink," said Glass, a native of Regina, Saskatchewan. "So even tournaments, wed have our real game inside and then wed all just take half our gear off and run across to the outdoor rink and play all day. It reminds me of that and kind of the good old days." Yup, these outdoor games still have an allure for NHL players, especially when they involve two of the best teams in the league. The league gets a marquee prime-time finish for its successful Stadium Series when Sidney Crosby and the Penguins take on Jonathan Toews and the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night at the home of the NFLs Chicago Bears. "Youve got two pretty fast, skilled hockey teams and if the ice can kind of agree with everyone I think that would make for a pretty good product out there," Crosby said. The forecast calls for light snow and temperatures in the teens, but each team has some experience with the pratfalls of playing outside. Chicago lost 6-4 to rival Detroit in the 2009 Winter Classic at Wrigley Field. Crosby had the winning shootout goal when visiting Pittsburgh beat Buffalo 2-1 in the first Winter Classic in 2008, but the Penguins lost 3-1 to Washington when they hosted the 2011 game at Heinz Field. Now the Blackhawks and Penguins return to the great outdoors for their first meeting since Pittsburghs 3-2 victory on Dec. 20, 2011. Its ttheir first game in Chicago since Patrick Kane had the only shootout goal in the Blackhawks 3-2 win on Feb. Adidas Superstar ανδρικα φθηνα. 20 of that year. While scheduling and the leagues most recent labour dispute have kept the teams apart, the players are plenty familiar with one another. Team captains Crosby and Toews face off for the first time in an NHL regular-season game after leading Canada to the gold medal in the Sochi Olympics last weekend. Crosby, Toews and Penguins forward Chris Kunitz scored in their countrys 3-0 victory in the final against Sweden, which included Marcus Kruger, Johnny Oduya and Niklas Hjalmarsson of the Blackhawks. Penguins coach Dan Bylsma got a chance to see Kane up close when he was behind the bench for Team USA in Russia. "Ive learned quite a bit about his competitiveness," Bylsma said. "You kind of see the smile. Its certainly a ton of skill how he plays the game, but I was impressed by it and learned just the competitiveness that he has and brings to the game. Skill-wise you see it live." The first NHL game at Soldier Field also features two teams in need of a win. The Penguins are coming off a 6-5 shootout loss to Montreal, while the Blackhawks lost 2-1 at the New York Rangers on Thursday night. Chicago, which almost tied the game against the Rangers in the final seconds, is playing its first game in the Windy City since Jan. 26. "Everybody is excited for Saturday," centre Peter Regin, who scored the only goal against New York, said Thursday night. "Obviously we were hoping to get a different outcome tonight, but we play in two days. That is the good thing about the NHL, you play every second night, so its not so long before you can redeem yourself."
