(SportsNetwork. Nike Air Max 1 Discount .com) - The Cleveland Cavaliers hope to have the NBAs best player back in the lineup Friday against the New Orleans Pelicans. LeBron James did not play in Thursdays 103-94 loss to Oklahoma City because of a sore left knee and is expected back in the lineup tonight. James is fourth in the NBA in scoring with 24.8 points per game. Thunder stars Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant scored 26 and 19 points, respectively, while the Cavaliers were led by Kyrie Irvings 20 points. Irving was probable prior to the game with a knee sprain. Kevin Love recorded 18 points and grabbed 16 rebounds for Cleveland, which shot just 36.5 percent and made only 9-of-28 3-pointers. We have a lot of guys on this team that can step up. Shooting as poorly as we did, and still climbing and fighting back against a very good team in the Western Conference and league overall, it showed us a lot, Love said. Obviously were not too happy with a loss, but there are a lot of things that we can see in that fourth quarter that showed a lot of character about our team. Love has posted a double-double in six of his last seven games. Tristan Thompson had 14 points and 13 rebounds, and Dion Waiters scored 14 points. The Cavs, who are 6-4 on the road, had won a season-best eight in a row. After visiting the Pelicans in the Big Easy, the Cavs will play five in a row at home. Cleveland was winning by an average of 14.5 points during the eight-game winning streak and is unbeaten in the last 11 games when scoring 100 or more points. It is 12-1 when reaching 100 points this season. New Orleans will play three in a row at home and suffered a 112-107 loss at Dallas on Wednesday. Anthony Davis posted 31 points and 11 rebounds, Jrue Holiday ended with 30 points and 10 assists, and Ryan Anderson scored 13 points for the Pelicans, who shot 45.5 percent for the game and lost for the sixth time in nine tries. Davis sustained a jammed toe in the loss, but its nothing serious. He was fine, said Pelicans coach Monty Williams. He didnt want to come out and I wasnt wanting to take him out, either. Im never going to put him in harms way. Unless I see that look in his eyes, and Ive been around him long enough to know when I should take him out. He jammed his toe. He said he couldnt feel his toenail or something like that. But I think he was OK. New Orleans outrebounded Dallas 45-29 and held the Mavericks to five offensive boards. The Pelicans had 16 rebounds on the offensive end. The Pelicans will also host Golden State and Utah on the homestand and are 6-2 at Smoothie King Center this season. Cleveland defeated New Orleans by a 118-111 score on Nov. 10 at Quicken Loans Arena and was led by James, who had 32 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists. Irving also scored 32 points and Anderson paced the Pelicans with that same amount. Anderson made 8-of-12 3-pointers. Air Max 1 Sale Cheap . Two-time Olympic bronze medallists Savchenko and Szolkowy received 79.02 points to finish ahead of world bronze medallists Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford of Canada, who had 77.01 points. Air Max 1 Wholesale . "There are a lot of things that are going very well in this organization. Im not coming in here to rip things apart," Nicholson told reporters Friday. "I know what Hockey Canada was when I started, and I know where this (Oilers) organization is today.With the Super Bowl over for another year and our mighty hockey teams about to chase after Olympic gold yet again, it seems a little strange to be talking about “team” when it comes to figure skating. When you think teams you imagine a group of people who all shop at the same jersey store and move together in a large pack with a common goal, which is usually scoring goals. But at these Olympic Games the idea of becoming a team in figure skating makes perfect sense because of a new event called, shockingly, the Team Event. Now before you get your mind all fired up with images of Patrick Chan spinning through the air and passing off a baton to Tessa Virtue as she floats by on the back of Scott Moir, I must tell you that it is not quite that interactive. And there are a few rules. First, teams are made up only of skaters who have qualified in their own discipline and will be competing at the Games. Canada will be able to choose its team members from the three men, two women, three pairs and three dance teams that it is sending to Sochi. One man, one woman, one pair and one dance couple from each qualified country will skate their short programs. Before the long program, two of the disciplines can be changed out. For example, Canada might choose to have different skaters compete in the long in the mens and womens events, meaning the pair and dance teams could not be changed. They skate, scores are given, math happens and voila, medals are handed out to the team with the highest total. If that sounds like it lacks a tad in the creative aspect of team play you would be right. Skaters are expected to pretty much repeat the exact same program, with maybe a few new elements, when they compete inn their non-team events for the individual medals. Wholesale Air Max 1 Cheap. Just for fun imagine the six members of the “team” all skating at once wearing matching uniforms... oh wait, thats hockey. If it all seems like it needs some intrigue, then consider that when picking the team certain questions of strategy come to mind.   If you use only your best skaters, do you risk taking away from their chances for individual medals? With two possible changes before the long programs, do you split the duties up for the pair teams because they have their individual event first and have the least amount of time to recover ? Ice dancers Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir won Olympic gold in Vancouver but lost recently to the Americans at the Grand Prix Final. Do you keep them away from a head-to-head before their actual event? If youre Patrick Chan, reigning world champion in search of a gold medal, do you throw all those quads and hope you have some more left when your individual event begins on Day 6?   I bet you that it would be a tad easier to make these decisions if you already knew who the other teams were... hmm? Personally, I am very excited for this team event. Not only is it more figure skating for fans and another chance at an Olympic medal for these athletes and the country they love, but it is going to be fun. It will bring the skaters together in a way that has never happened before in our sport. Those key decisions I mentioned will keep the water cooler conversations rolling. Oh, and I can hardly wait for the inevitable team chants. " Jump up high / Spin down low / Go Team Canada / Go! Go! Go! " Hey, its our first time at this team thing, give us a break. 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 ChinaStitched Soccer Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Jerseys ' ' '
