t at home. Rudy Gay had 2

MIAMI -- Each of the last two Miami championship runs has been highlighted by moments where a sharpshooter enters a game and immediately provides a surprise spark. Darren McFadden Jersey . James Jones got his turn Sunday. And the lift he brought, combined with the expected playoff showings from LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, have the Heat off and running in these playoffs. James scored 27 points, Wade added 23 and the Heat rode two big runs -- one late in the first half, the other down the stretch -- to beat the Charlotte Bobcats 99-88 in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference first-round series. Miami trailed for much of the first half, but rallied and has now topped Charlotte 17 straight times. "We were flat to start," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "I think our guys were just anxious." Game 2 of the best-of-seven series is Wednesday. Al Jefferson will be getting plenty of treatment until then. Kemba Walker scored 20 points for the Bobcats, who started fast behind Jefferson -- who was diagnosed with a strained left plantar fascia after a misstep in the first quarter, and got a pair of injections just to continue playing. "We did some really good things today," Walker said. "We just have to keep executing throughout the game. We cant get rattled." Jefferson still finished with 18 points and 10 rebounds -- yet in what cant be a real exciting sign for Charlotte, he left the arena in a walking boot. "Just got to suck it up, man," said Jefferson, who confessed that hes no fan of needles but insisted he doesnt plan on sitting out. Gary Neal scored 17 and Josh McRoberts added 15 for Charlotte, which shot only 12 free throws compared to 26 by Miami, and allowed the Heat to turn their 15 turnovers into 20 points. "If were going to have 15 turnovers, were not going to win," Bobcats coach Steve Clifford said. Miami sealed it with an 18-4 run in the fourth, all but three of those points coming with James getting a rest. Luke Ridnour made a high-arcing baseline jumper over Ray Allen with 10:29 left to get Charlotte within 74-69. Thats when James got a breather. He returned to breathing room. Chris Andersen had a tip-in for a 12-point lead, Wade -- who shot 10 for 16 -- made a 3-pointer as the shot clock was winding down with 6:50 left to make it 85-70, and another score by Andersen pushed the margin to 17. With that, Game 1 was secure. "That group that was in once I took that break at the 10-minute mark in the fourth quarter, they just bumped the lead," James said. "Obviously, to have three Hall of Famers in the game when Im out of the game, CB, D-Wade and Ray ... that was big-time." So was Jones. He didnt play in the first half of any playoff game last season and was out of the rotation much of this year. But when he checked in with 4:19 left in the half Sunday, Miami led 35-34. "Hell of a spark," Wade said. Before long, it was 47-36, Jones scoring four of those late as Miami was wrapping up a 19-2 run. He added five more in the third, and his 3-pointer with 10:08 left kickstarted what became the game-deciding spurt down the stretch. "When youre dressed, youre expected to perform," Jones said. Two years ago, it was Mike Miller giving a lift to the Heat in that off-the-bench role. Last year, it was Miller and Shane Battier sharing those honours. Miller is in Memphis now, Battier is out of the rotation, and that means a door may be opening for Jones. "Hes going to be a very, very key ingredient to our success," James said. Charlotte had four players making their first playoff starts. It was also the first national-television appearance this season for the Bobcats, who seemed anything but overwhelmed by the moment. Walker made a 3-pointer to beat the first-half buzzer, drawing Charlotte within 49-42. That started an 11-0 run by the Bobcats, who scored the first eight of the third quarter to reclaim a one-point lead. And the third stayed close, neither team leading by more than three for the majority of the third. But the Heat closed strong behind Jones and James, who made a 3-pointer with 0.6 seconds left for a 72-65 Miami lead entering the fourth. NOTES: With his final point, James passed Larry Bird for No. 8 on the leagues all-time playoff scoring list. ... Miami is 61-8 over the last three seasons when making at least 10 3-pointers. ... Charlotte was returning home after the game, taking advantage of the long break before Game 2. Khalil Mack Raiders Jersey . Calve, from Gatineau, Que., claimed her third career World Cup win by edging Russias Ekaterina Tudegesheva in the final, beating her opponent by just 0. C.J. Wilson Raiders Jersey . However, the Whitecaps were unable to live up to the pre-match hype, and remain winless on the road in their inaugural MLS season. The rivalry between the two teams dates back to 1975 in the days of the NASL, and more recently has been played out at the second division level of North American soccer.(SportsNetwork.com) - The Denver Nuggets will take their three-game winning streak into Sleep Train Arena Friday night to take on the Sacramento Kings, minus one key player. The Nuggets traded starting center Timofey Mozgov to the Cleveland Cavaliers in exchange for two protected first-round picks. Mozgov averaged 8.5 ppg and 7.8 rpg this season. Denver has won three straight with two coming at home and one on the road. Most recently, the Nuggets defeated the Orlando Magic, 93-90, at home on Wednesday. Ty Lawson scored 23 points in the victory. Arron Afflalo added 17 points and six rebounds for the Nuggets, who have won six in a row at home against Orlando. Nate Robinson and Wilson Chandler tallied 13 and 12 points, respectively, while J.J. Hickson contributed 11 points and 10 rebounds. Rookie center Jusuf Nurkic ended with eight points and two blocks for the Nuggets in his first NBA start. The Nuggets nearly blew a 10-point lead with less than six minutes to go. The Magic had a chance to tie following misses by Lawson and Robinson, but Evan Fourniers last-second 3-pointer fell short. A win is a win is a win, but I was not happy with the fourth quarter and the way we finished the game, at all, said Nuggets coach Brian Shaw. Marcus Allen Raiders Jersey. The Kings have won two of their last three, including a home blowout of the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday. Sacramento clobbered OKC, 104-83, and has won two straight at home. Rudy Gay had 28 points and nine rebounds to lead the Kings. Darren Collison made a career-high five 3-pointers en route to 24 points for the Kings, who snapped a 12-game losing streak against Oklahoma City. DeMarcus Cousins contributed 23 points and 15 rebounds, but did pick up his fourth technical foul of the season. I thought tonight was the first night in a long time where we really committed on the defensive end, Collison said. I dont know if it was the stage of the game playing a team like OKC, but I thought our urgency was really high tonight. The Kings held the Thunder to 32.6 percent shooting from the field and just 30 percent from long range. Sacramento forced 24 turnovers, which it turned into 26 points. The Kings have won both meetings this season against the Nuggets and have taken three straight and four of the last five. Denver is 5-2 in its previous seven in Californias capital. cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys Ray Ban Outlet Michael Kors Outlet Michael Kors Sale Cheap Michael Kors ' ' '
