After a couple of minutes to gain his bearings Antworten

Marquez Valdes-Scantling Super Bowl Jersey . Carter, a veteran of 112 Tests and last years World Rugby Player of the Year, is bidding to lead Racing 92 to their first major European final, and Mauger has urged his players not to give the star playmaker any time on the ball at Nottingham Forests City Ground.Hes never been overawed by any challenge, and its no different now, said Mauger. Hes probably been the difference for Racing this year, even though you dont want to pin too much on one person.Hell back himself to play whats in front of him, but weve got to back ourselves to take that time and space away from him, limit his options and put him under pressure. Carter and Aaron Mauger played together for the All Blacks and the Crusaders Mauger has been widely credited with adding an extra degree of backline flair this season to a Leicester side traditionally known for forward power, and it was on full display as the Tigers smashed Stade Francais 41-13 in the quarter-final earlier in the month.Director of Rugby Richard Cockerill will hope for more of the same as he opts to retain the side that beat Northampton 30-24 in the Aviva Premiership last Saturday.Graham Kitchener makes his 100th appearance for Leicester as he lines up alongside Dom Barrow in the second row, while prop Logovii Mulipola is also in line for his 100th appearance after being included among the replacements.

Were going to enjoy it and give it everything weve got.

There is plenty of blame to be shared as a result of the most recent NHL player (Pittsburghs Brooks Orpik) to be evacuated from the ice on a stretcher following an ugly incident Saturday night in Boston. SALT LAKE CITY -- Stephen Curry found his shooting stroke in the second quarter, and it was more than enough to push the Golden State Warriors past the struggling Utah Jazz. Curry scored 22 points and Klay Thompson and Harrison Barnes had 17 apiece in the Warriors 98-87 victory Monday night. Curry had eight assists and made four 3-pointers before a scary play in the fourth quarter left him a little woozy. The star guard left the game after Utahs Marvin Williams landed on his head in a scramble for a loose ball. "I went to reach for the ball and the next thing I know, I hit the ground pretty hard and then I think Marvin landed on me," Curry said. After a couple of minutes to gain his bearings, Curry got up slowly and left the court under his own power with a towel draped over his head. But he is expected to play in Wednesdays home game against Memphis. "Ive got a nasty headache but Ill be all right," he said. The Warriors made 12 of 22 attempts from 3-point range and led by as many as 28 points. "When you defend, rebound and run, its hard to guard us. Any one of us can make a play in transition," Curry said. Gordon Hayward scored 18 points and Williams had 16 but the Jazz (1-11) dropped their third straight after earning their lone win of the season. Playing without injured centre Jermaine ONeal, the Warriors got 14 points and 14 rebounds from David Lee and Andrew Bogut added 13 boards and three blocked shots to neutralize Utahs inside presence. What the Jazz lack (and the Warriors have in spades) became apparent in the fourth quarter. After clawing within striking distance, Utah missed eight of its first nine shots in the final period. The Jazz are among the worst shooting teams in the league, converting less than 41 per cent of their attempts. They were even worse against Golden State, finishing at 39.5 per cent despite an abundance of clean looks at the rim. "We missed some outside jump shots and they were off to the races and in transition," Hayward said. "Its frustrating and we have to play smarter." On the other end, the Warriors heated up in the final period to put the game away. JK Scott Super Bowl Jersey. Thompsons layup with 7:56 to play extended the lead to 92-69. "Were playing well and sharing the ball . but more importantly, our defence is solid," Curry said. "When you are getting stops and youre able to run in transition, the offence seems to flow pretty smoothly." Utah did have one strong stretch in the third quarter. Diante Garrett, who was just signed last week, checked in and promptly scored eight in a 17-2 spurt. Garrett dished to Williams for a 3 that made it 70-57. The Warriors, who had lost their previous two road games, outrebounded Utah 57-40 and limited the NBAs best offensive rebounding team to just six. "We are starting to get an identity, especially defensively," Bogut said. "We won the rebound battle by 17 against a very good offensive rebounding team. I like our effort." Early in the second quarter, Williams made a 3-pointer to help the Jazz close to 29-27 before Curry led a 30-9 run, fueled by 6-for-8 shooting from beyond the arc for Golden State. Curry had missed eight 3-pointers in a row over the past three games before making a trio of 3s in the second-quarter surge. "It was a close game and they made three in a row there and we panicked a little bit. This is a team that is capable of scoring a lot of points in a short amount of time," Utah coach Ty Corbin said. Golden State also won the front end of a home-and-away set between the teams. Thompson had 25 points as the Warriors held off the Jazz 102-88 on Saturday. ONeal missed the game with a bruised right knee and a strained right groin. He didnt travel with the team, and the reserve is considered day to day. "Were a very loose group and very young group," Bogut said. "Im kind of the old dog now at 29, believe it or not. But weve come together and its been a great start to the season." NOTES: The Warriors signed C Dewayne Dedmon from their D-League affiliate in Santa Cruz. Dedmon did not play. ... The Jazz turned the ball over just 11 times but the miscues led to 19 Golden State points. ... The attendance was 16,051, one of the lowest numbers in years at the Energy Solutions Arena. ' ' '
