for now, its a nice

LOS ANGELES -- After a rough start to the season, Mike Conley was thinking of winning some games, not making the playoffs. Martin St. Louis Rangers Jersey . What a difference a few months has made. The Memphis Grizzlies beat the Los Angeles Lakers 102-90 on Sunday night to move a game ahead of idle Phoenix in the race for the final Western Conference playoff berth. "Its amazing were in this position," said Conley, who scored 24 points. Marc Gasol added 18 points and 15 rebounds and Mike Miller had 13 points for the Grizzlies, who head to Phoenix for a showdown with the Suns on Monday night. "Theyre playing very well," Conley said of the Suns. "These are the games we get up for." The Grizzlies are 2-0 against the Suns this season, winning by 19 points at home and by eight in Phoenix. "Its going to be a good test to go to Phoenix and play a team that is fighting for the same goal and can get hot really quick," Gasol said. Jodie Meeks led the Lakers with 20 points in their last home game of a miserable season that has included a franchise-worst 55 losses with two games remaining. "Its just a tough year," Lakers coach Mike DAntoni said. "Obviously it went off the rails when everybody was going down with injuries and trades and different things. Management will be on it this summer to get a good roster. Theyll do a good job and hopefully people will stay well and then well see what happens." The Lakers lost their seventh in a row overall and fifth straight at Staples Center. Wesley Johnson added 15 points and 15 rebounds, and Jordan Hill had 10 points and 10 rebounds. Tied at 61 in the third, the Grizzlies pulled away on a 26-8 run to lead 87-69 going into the fourth. Conley scored six points, Tayshaun Prince had seven and Gasol added six in the spurt that produced their first double-digit lead of the game. Memphis shot 68 per cent in the period. "I dont know how many stops in a row we had at the end of the third, but we came out and guarded," Gasol said. "We were pressuring the ball, we got on our defensive lines, and we rebounded. That most times takes care of a lot of things." Nick Young, who finished with 14 points off the bench, had the Lakers only field goal over the final 5 1/2 minutes of the third, when they shot 29 per cent and were outrebounded 14-6. Memphis led by 22 points early in the fourth, when the Lakers got no closer than 12. "This was a good sign on how we finished out the game," Prince said. "I hope we can carry it over to tomorrow." The Lakers kept it close in the first half, leading by nine before trailing 53-52 at the break. Notes: Gasol hugged his brother Pau after the game; Pau has been out for the Lakers with vertigo. ... The Grizzlies improved to 22-18 on the road overall and 13-12 against West opponents away from home. ... After travelling to Phoenix, the Grizzlies end the regular season at Dallas, which is a half-game ahead of Memphis for the seventh seed. ... As has been his custom lately, injured Kobe Bryant wasnt on the bench during the game. ... Young addressed the crowd before the game, thanking fans for "sticking in with us and supporting us all season long."... The Lakers end the season with games at Utah and San Antonio.

Houston coach Kevin McHale moved Howard to power forward on Monday to get 7-foot centre Omer Asik in the lineup with the teams new acquisition. Asik had four points and nine rebounds in his first game this season after dealing with a calf injury.Martin St. Louis will be in the lineup tonight when the New York Rangers face the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 5 of their Eastern Conference second round series. St. Louis mother France passed away suddenly on Thursday. Head coach Alain Vigneault said St. Louis traveled to his familys home in Montreal the night before but has since returned and will play. Pittsburgh has pushed the Rangers to the brink of elimination as the Penguins hold a 3-1 advantage after dropping the first game of the series in overtime. Since losing Game 1 in the Steel City, the Pens have rattled off three straight wins, outscoring New York by a combined 9-2 margin along the way. After getting shut out by Marc-Andre Fleury in Games 2 and 3, New York was able to score twice in Wednesdays meeting in Manhattan but it wasnt enough to even the series. Instead, the Penguins earned a 4-2 decision to grab a commanding lead in the best-of-seven set and give them a chance to end the series tonight on home ice. New York has won seven of its last nine games when facing elimination, including two of four on the road. Pittsburgh, however, is 9-2 all-time in series when holding a 3-1 lead. The last time the Penguins blew a 3-1 lead was in the 2011 Eastern Conference quarterfinals against Tampa Bay when both Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin were injured and missed the series. New York halted a scoring drought at 145 minutes, 30 seconds on Carl Hagelins goal early in the second period of Game 4, but the club continued to struggle on the power play. The Rangers went 0-for-2 with the man advantage on Wednesday and have now failed on 36 straight power-play chances. The last power-play goal for the Rangers came in Game 2 of their first-round victory over the Philadelphia Flyers. "We havent earned it enough, we havent executed enough," Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh said of his teams overall effort in this series. "We have looks, cant finish, and havent made it hard on the goalie and are not capitalizing on the chances we are given. We have to play better on all areas of the ice (Friday)." The clubs power-play situation plumbed new depths in Game 4, with New York not only failing to score on the man advantage once again but the Rangers also allowed a shorthanded goal to Brandon Sutter late in the second period. Sutters tally made it 2-1 with 1:33 remaining in the period and Pittsburgh would hold a lead the rest of the way. Malkin contributed a goal and an assist for Pittsburgh, while Chris Kunitz and Jussi Jokinen also liit the lamp to help the Pens grab a commanding series lead. New York Rangers Jersey. . Crosby added two assists in the game and Pittsburghs captain has nine points in the playoffs. Malkin leads the team with 12 points (5g, 7a). Fleury, who in Games 3 and 4 became the first Penguins goalie to record back- to-back playoff shutouts, only needed to make 13 saves for Wednesdays victory. The 15 shots allowed by Pittsburgh in Game 4 were the fewest surrendered in a playoff game in franchise history. "Its a nice cushion you know, but nothings done," said Fleury. "Its fun for now, its a nice win. But get back at it Friday." Pittsburgh did lose Brooks Orpik once again after the defenseman returned from a five-game absence due to an undisclosed injury. Orpik was hurt Wednesday after colliding with Rangers forward Mats Zuccarello late in the first period and did not return. If Orpik is unable to go in Game 5, Robert Bortuzzo expects to take his place in the lineup. Bortuzzo had an assist and was a plus-2 while filling in for Orpik in five games during this postseason. Zuccarello scored in the third period for New York and Henrik Lundqvist gave up all four goals on 27 shots. New York head coach Alain Vigneault blamed the Game 4 loss largely on his teams carelessness with the puck. "We didnt pick a good night to manage the puck the way we did tonight," said Vigneault. "I dont want to take any credit against Pittsburgh, they forced the play and they played a real solid game without the puck that obviously forced us into a lot of those turnovers." The Rangers had speedy forward Chris Kreider in the lineup for the first time since late March in Game 4, and the 23-year-old experienced some ups and downs. Kreider, who returned after recovering from surgery to his left hand, had one shot on net and was a minus-one after logging 15:24 of ice time. "I felt good one shift, rusty the next, good for a shift, rusty the next," Kreider said. "Im excited to play the next one because we have another opportunity. Whenever a team goes deep into this thing they always face some adversity, and thats what weve got right here. This is an opportunity to see what we are made of. Its gut-check time." If New York is able to win Fridays game in the Steel City, it will host Game 6 on Sunday. New York is aiming for its first playoff series win against Pittsburgh, which has won all four previous postseason meetings. The Pens boast a 19-5 all-time record against the Rangers in the playoffs and are 10-3 as the home team. cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys wholesale jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys Etrit Berisha Jersey ' ' '
