Authentic Stephen Johns Jersey van panxing18 dagboek

For Indiana guard Victor Oladipo Authentic Stephen Johns Jersey , there was much to like about the Pacers‘ road trip.

“It was a great road trip,” Oladipo said. “Unfortunately, we wanted to end it a little better. If we look at the bigger picture, it was a great road trip for us and we just have to continue to keep getting better like I said. Confidence is high.”

The Pacers won the first three games of the trek before losing to Denver 107-104 on Tuesday night. The trip started with a victory at Golden State.

The Pacers will see a different Golden State team Thursday night in Indianapolis after beating the short-handed Warriors 92-81 on Friday.

The Warriors were without all four All-Stars — Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green — because of injuries and illness. All but Curry have returned to action. Curry will miss the rest of the regular season with a left MCL sprain.

With four regular season games remaining, the Pacers (46-32) are in the No. 5 spot in the Eastern Conference and appear destined for a first-round matchup with Cleveland or Philadelphia.

“I think it is going to make us road-tough and battle-tested,” Pacers forward Thaddeus Young said of the road trip. “It’s definitely prepping us for the task at hand, which is going to the playoffs and trying to get some games. I think we have been doing a good job of handling it. Just going out there and just playing as a team.”

Pacers coach Nate McMillan was pleased overall.

“We did some good things on this trip,” McMillan said. “We gave ourselves a chance to win (against Denver) and I thought (we had) a couple of mental mistakes down the stretch, (Denver) made some baskets that cost us this game. I think we looked a little fatigued there. I thought there was some mental fatigue.”

Oladipo Kevin Shattenkirk Jersey , who was named Eastern Conference Player of the Week on Monday, scoring 25 points against Denver. He finished the road trip averaging 25.8 points, 6.8 assists, 5.3 rebounds and 3.8 steals while shooting 62.9 percent from the field.

Durant scored 34 as the Warriors beat host Oklahoma City 111-107 on Tuesday night. The Warriors (57-21) are locked into the second seed in the Western Conference.

“We want to build on this and keep building momentum towards the playoffs,” Durant told TNT.

Durant said it was a different game, missing several players.

“We’re missing the missile (Curry) out there,” Durant said. “We figured it out. We were moving the ball, we were being aggressive. Being down not just Steph but Andre (Iguodala), (Kevon) Looney and Shaun (Livingston). Everybody stepped up.”

Warriors coach Steve Kerr called it “a hell of a win, especially without our guards. I loved how these guys played and competed.”

Reserve center Damian Jones contributed eight points for the Warriors in his first significant minutes (14).

“Damian deserves credit, he’s really http://www.officialsharks.com/authentic-adidas-logan-couture-jersey , really worked hard,” Kerr said. “You can see the type of physical presence he has out there. It was fun opportunity to see what he could do.”

Point guard Quinn Cook has scored in double figures in 11 consecutive games for the Warriors, who are expected to find a way to put Cook on the playoff roster.

In 12 games against the Pacers, Thompson has averaged 26.3 points on 48.2 percent from 3-point range. That’s four points better than his average against any other team.

Richie Incognito is abruptly calling it quits on an 11-season NFL career, three years after the Buffalo Bills gave the offensive guard a second chance at playing following his role in the Miami Dolphins' bullying scandal.

The NFL Players Association on Tuesday night announced Incognito had contacted the union of his plans to retire. The announcement made on the NFLPA's Twitter account , came after Incognito revealed his intention to retire through a series of tweets and comments made to several publications throughout the morning.

Without going into detail, the 34-year-old said he was "done" in a text to The Associated Press shortly after SportsIllustrated reported Incognito was "strongly considering retiring," but would consider returning for one more season at the right price.

Incognito then told The Buffalo News he's retiring because of health reasons.

"I'm done. That's it," Incognito told The News. "Went to the doctor. My liver and kidneys are shutting down. The stress is killing me."

The Bills did not respond to a request seeking comment.

Incognito's decision to retire comes a week after he fired his agent, David Dunn, in a post on Twitter. That decision came after Incognito accepted a pay cut by restructuring the final year of his contract.

Incognito initially backed his restructured contract by posting a note on Twitter saying he was "thrilled to be returning this season and fired up to get back to work with my Buffalo Bills brothers."

Incognito is also the subject of an NFL investigation after Jacksonville defensive end Yannick Ngakoue accused the Bills player of making racist slurs during the Jaguars' 10-3 win over Buffalo in an AFC wild-card playoff game in January.

The NFL has not announced whether it has completed its investigation. Ngakoue said he and Incognito cleared the air after they were AFC teammates at the Pro Bowl in January.

Incognito began Tuesday with a series of vague tweets Michael Grabner Jersey , which began with "Good morning, FOOTBALL!" He then tweeted "Yes," and "Wow," before posting a note that read: "Big Ben."

Later, he mentioned the Twitter accounts of the NFLPA and the union's assistant executive director, George Atallah, in a note that read, "I'm done," followed by a winking emoji with its tongue stuck out.

In its tweet Tuesday night, the NFLPA wished Incognito good luck in the next stage of his career.

Incognito is leaving football a little over three years since signing a one-year deal with Buffalo to resume his career after spending 18 months away from the game.

Incognito was suspended for the final eight games of the 2013 season, when the Dolphins were thrust into the national spotlight after offensive lineman Jonathan Martin abruptly quit the team amid accusations he was being bullied. An NFL investigation determined Incognito and two other Dolphins offensive linemen persistently harassed Martin.

In February http://www.officialislanders.com/authentic-adidas-nick-leddy-jersey , Martin was detained and questioned by Los Angeles police after posting a threatening note on his Instagram account. Martin's post showed a shotgun and specifically mentioned Incognito, former teammate Mike Pouncey as well as a private Los Angeles prep school Martin once attended. Martin wrote suicide and revenge were the only options for a victim of bullying.

Incognito also played three-plus seasons in St. Louis, which drafted him in 2005. He played in college at Nebraska but left after being suspended, then transferred to Oregon though he never played for the Ducks.

Incognito earned three of his four Pro Bowl selections in Buffalo, and was considered among the Bills team leaders. He started all 36 games at left guard for the Bills, and was part of a line that led to Buffalo leading the NFL in yards rushing in both 2015 and '16.

The Bills' offensive line is already undergoing a shuffle after center Eric Wood was diagnosed with a career-ending neck injury in January. Buffalo also traded starting left tackle Cordy Glenn to Cincinnati last month.
