OAKLAND, Calif. Joe Francis Jersey Retro . - Klay Thompson is ready for the regular season.Thompson scored 35 points in nearly 36 minutes to help the Golden State Warriors beat the Denver Nuggets 119-112 on Friday night in the preseason finale for both teams.Our offence is going good and tonight is a good indication of what we can do, Thompson said. After eight preseason games we are all ready for the real thing.Thompson was 13 of 26 from the field.I think Klay is taking another step up this year, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. Maybe some of that has to do with his summer performance with Team USA, but you can just tell the confidence that he has.Stephen Curry added 17 points for Golden State (6-2).Steph, obviously, on high screens is so difficult to handle and those two guys (Curry and Thompson) are more than likely going to be the guys with the ball in their hands, Kerr said.Jusuf Nurkic led Denver (2-6) with 16 points.He is really smart and has been playing pro for a long time, Nuggets teammate Danilo Gallinari said about Nurkic. I think he is going to be an All-Star in this league.Denver cut it to 104-98 with 6:18 left when Gary Harris hit a 3-pointer. Nurkic made a layup with 5:21 to play and converted two free throws 34 seconds later to cut the Warriors lead to 104-102 with 4:47 left.The Warriors countered with a Thompsons layup in traffic, Currys two free throws and Thompsons 3-pointer to make it 111-102 with 3:23 to play.TIP-INSWarriors: The Warriors also beat the Nuggets 104-101 in Des Moines, Iowa, on Oct. 16.Nuggets: J.J. Hickson, Nate Robinson, JaVale McGee and Danilo Gallinari all saw action against the Warriors, a welcome sight for Denver. All four missed a significant number of games last season, but are all relatively healthy going into the season.Denver coach Brian Shaw rested starters Ty Lawson and Kenneth Faried the entire game.We had a lot of guys on minute restrictions tonight, Shaw said. I saw what I needed to see. Im glad preseason is over and we can start to gear up and get ready for our season opener on Wednesday.PACKED HOUSEEven with two other big sporting events — Game 3 of the World Series at AT&T Park in San Francisco and the Oregon-Stanford football game in Santa Clara — going on, Oracle Arena was sold out with a crowd of 19,596.QUOTES OF THE NIGHTI think Klay Thompson may be the best 2-guard in the league right now. — Shaw said.Defensively we have to get better — a lot of mistakes. Our effort and our rotations are getting better. All in all, a good night. — Kerr.UP NEXTDenver hosts Detroit on Wednesday night in its regular-season opener.Golden State plays at Sacramento on Wednesday night in its regular-season opener. Bud Cooper Jersey Retro . Yup, he definitely needed this one. Craig homered twice and had three RBIs Wednesday night to lead the St. Louis Cardinals to a 7-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Craig went 4 for 5 and Yadier Molina added three hits for the Cardinals, who salvaged the final game of a three-game set in hopes of staying within shouting distance of front-running Milwaukee in the NL Central. Jordan Bernstine Jersey Retro . In Englands first game since its worst-ever World Cup showing, Roy Hodgsons side rarely looked like scoring against unambitious opposition and the breakthrough in the friendly only came when Raheem Sterling was tripped in the penalty area. https://www.cheapjerseyslines.com/matt-szymanski-jersey-retro/ . -- Another baseball tradition is about to largely disappear: a manager, with a crazed look in his eyes, charging the field and getting into a face-to-face shouting match with an umpire. Could Alex Burmistrov find his way back to the NHL? According to Slava Malamud, foreign correspondent for Sport-Express.ru, the former Jet may be looking to do just that as long as its not in Winnipeg. “He said that he knows that the Jets were looking to trade him, and if thats the case then he wouldnt mind it as long as he comes back to the NHL,” Malamud said while on TSN 1290s Rona Roundtable with Rick Ralph in reference to comments made to a Russian publication about Burmistrovs intentions of possibly coming back to the NHL. “Hes being kind of diplomatic there, but the vibe I caught from that exchange when I read it in the original Russian was that hes not too hot on the idea of coming back to Winnipeg, and he might want to try his luck somewhere else,” Malamud said. Burmistrov failed to live up to his billing as a top-10 NHL pick while in Winnipeg, with reports surfacing that he failed to see eye-to-eye with the teams coaching staff. “The vibe I got from him was that he didnt really like it anymore in Winnipeg,” Malamud said following Burmistrovs departure. “Not necessarily the city, but he didnt like the way he was being used. One of tthe phrases he said was, ‘Im willing to go to any club thats willing to let me play. Cheap Jerseys. That sort of implies that the Jets didnt let him play, or didnt let him play the way he wanted to play.” The Jets and Burmistrov parted ways following the 2012-13 season as the now 22-year-old returned to his hometown club Kazan Ak-Bars, where he posted a team-leading 10 goals and 37 points in 54 games. “I think that right now hes ready to come back because hes one of those Russian kids who grew up in the late 90s, and for them the NHL was their ultimate dream. I dont think hes willing to give up on that yet." Should he return to the NHL, the Jets hold his rights and would have to deal Burmistrov to another club for him to be eligible to play. “I think Burmistrov still thinks he can be a top six guy in the National Hockey League, whether there are NHL clubs who think the same, thats the question. I dont think hes going to make it as a grinder.” The Rona Roundtable with Rick Ralph airs weekdays from 11am-1pm CT on TSN 1290 Winnipeg. To listen to the rest of the interview download the podcast.
