Bachman 11 minutes into the second. from mary123's blog

OAKLAND, Calif. New York City Jersey . -- Nate Robinson has played for seven teams, so beating one of them is no longer a rare occurrence. Still, it never gets old. Robinson scored 14 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter and the streaky Denver Nuggets outlasted the Golden State Warriors 123-116 on Wednesday night. "Ive embraced it," said Robinson, in his first season with the Nuggets. "I keep a journal every game. I write to myself and just reflect on my career. Its helped me cope with not getting the contract that I want or playing time or being on one team." Wilson Chandler and Ty Lawson each scored 22 points, and J.J. Hickson grabbed a season-high 24 rebounds to help give Oakland native and first-year Nuggets coach Brian Shaw a victory in his hometown. But Robinsons latest return to Golden State, where he played 51 games during the 2011-12 season, overshadowed Shaw late. The 29-year-old reserve guard finished 9-of-12 shooting, including 6 of 8 in the fourth quarter. "For me, my home is the NBA no matter what team I play for," Robinson said. "Ill always play the same way. Ill always play the right way, try to play to win and Im going to play with my heart every night, no matter how many minutes I play and how many teams I play for. If I could be the first player to ever play for every team in the league, I want to do it." David Lee had 28 points and 11 rebounds, and Stephen Curry scored 24 for the well-rested Warriors, who took the lead with 1:13 remaining before the Nuggets pulled away again. Golden State, which had won 11 of 12, hadnt played since beating Boston on Friday night. "Thats an excuse. I would say its because we were bad," Warriors coach Mark Jackson said. "Defensively, thats as bad as it gets." Both teams pushed the pace from the start in a back-and-forth game with incredible scores and few stops. For most of the fourth, Robinson stole the show. He made consecutive 3-pointers, a driving layup, a long jumper and a step-back shot during a scintillating display of offence that put Denver ahead 113-105 with 3:44 to play. "Hes a streaky player, and when hes on a good streak, hes as good as anybody in the league," Shaw said. The Warriors kept on coming, though, getting contributions from all over -- Curry hit a 3-pointer, Lee followed with a dunk and Klay Thompson made a pull-up jumper to bring the Warriors within one. After Chandler made a pair of free throws, Lee went 3 of 4 from the line to give Golden State a 116-115 lead. Hickson came back with a running shot that put the Nuggets back in front, then stole the ball from Curry and converted a layup on the other end while getting fouled to finish with 13 points. He missed the free throw, but Denver got the rebound. And after Lawson missed a jumper, Hickson grabbed another board. Lawson hit both free throws to give the Nuggets a 121-116 lead. Then Curry missed an open 3-pointer following a timeout to send most of the sellout crowd of 19,596 to the exits. "Theyre a team that can really score the basketball," Lee said, "so to put yourself in a hole really makes it tough." The two-faced Nuggets showed their better side in a rematch of last seasons first-round playoff series won by Golden State. Denver won seven straight from Nov. 21 to Dec. 3 and five in a row before losing at Utah on Monday night. The Nuggets also had an eight-game losing streak from Dec. 17 to Jan. 1. Golden States bench was short-handed after the team sent struggling backup guard Toney Douglas to the Miami Heat in a three-team trade. The Warriors acquired Jordan Crawford and reserve MarShon Brooks from the Boston Celtics, but neither player was available in time to face the Nuggets. Golden State had enough trouble with its starting unit in this one. The Nuggets shot 62 per cent in the first half to take a 65-58 lead. The Warriors shot 48 per cent before the break -- a solid performance on most nights -- but never could slow down Denver. Golden State tightened up defensively at the beginning of the third to briefly go ahead. Denver ended the quarter on an 11-2 run capped by Evan Fourniers half-court heave as time expired to carry a 91-82 lead into the fourth. NOTES: Warriors general manager Bob Myers said backup centre Jermaine ONeal is about two to three weeks from returning from right wrist surgery. Myers also said fellow big man Festus Ezeli, out all season recovering from knee surgery, will likely be out until at least March. ... In addition to long-term injuries to Danilo Gallinari (left knee) and JaVale McGee (left leg), the Nuggets were without forward Anthony Randolph (left ankle) and Andre Miller (indefinite leave). Tony Taylor New York City Jersey ., for the next three years with the signings on Monday of Daryl Townsend and Michael Carter. George John Jersey . -- Arizona knocked off some quality opponents, rolled over a few overmatched ones and grinded out victories even when things didnt go so well. http://www.newyorkcityteamshop.com/Authentic-Jefferson-Mena-New-York-City-Jersey/ .ca! Hi Kerry, Heres an interesting one. I know its common knowledge that all players are responsible for their sticks. We witnessed that when Zack Kassian hit Edmontons Sam Gagner in the face after a missed check.HAMILTON, Ont. -- A familiar face foiled Devan Dubnyk on Friday, as the Hamilton Bulldogs newest member reacquainted himself with a starting role in net. Mark Arcobello, a former teammate of Dubnyks with the Edmonton Oilers, scored twice as the Oklahoma City Barons defeated the Bulldogs 2-1 in the American Hockey League. "Having the time off that I have between games, I just tried to go out there and focus and get through the different situations while playing without worrying about doing backflips or anything," said Dubnyk. "Unfortunately, Arcobellos a pretty good hockey player and he made a nice shot on the first goal." Richard Bachman made 23 saves for the Barons (27-24-8). Nathan Beaulieu had the lone goal for the Bulldogs (25-26-5), while Dubnyk stopped 38 shots in a losing effort. The former Edmonton Oiler made the start for the Bulldogs in his first game with the club since being traded from Nashville on the afternoon of Wednesdays NHL trade deadline. He admitted that he was prepared for the move that sent him to his third organization this season. "Its been a little bit crazy," said Dubnyk. "As the weeks went by after the Olympic break, I started to see the writing on the wall a little bit. You know that a move is coming up, so you have some time to prepare, and Im happy that I was acquired by a team that wants me. "Going to Nashville was a new experience, but that was only a month and a half ago, so the suitcase was still packed. You learn how to move, and the guys are pretty welcoming in there. You have to earn respect whenever youre in a new group. You do that each day, and its been good so far." Hamilton head coach Sylvain Lefebvre was pleased with his new goaltenders first showing. "(Dubnyk) played great," he said. "He was a calming presence in the net and looked in control." Dubnyk didnt have to wait long before being forced into action, facing three shots in the first 30 seconds of the game. The Bulldogs nearly gave him some early goal support, as the combination of Louis Leblanc and Gabriel Dumont had a flurry of opportunities in close that Bachman knocked aside just over three minutes into the first period. That breakthrough did come, however, after a series of penalties left Hamilton with a 4-on-3 power play midway through the period. The penalty had just expired when Greg Pateryn threeaded a pass to his partner Beaulieu at the right faceoff dot, and he quickly snapped a high wrist shot past Bachman at the near post at 6:19. Jason Hernandez Jersey. Hamiltons lead was short-lived, as a mistake in the defensive end gifted an easy chance to Arcobello at 10:05 of the first. An unexpected bounce behind Dubnyks net brought the puck out front, where the stunned Dumont could do little but nudge it forward. There, Arcobello was waiting and raced into the slot before lifting a shot off the crossbar and past Dubnyk. Leblanc had a golden opportunity to score when he intercepted a loose puck in the neutral zone five minutes into the second period, and streaked in alone on Bachman. But the Oklahoma City goaltender stayed with him as the winger moved to the far post and slid a weak shot wide. The Barons punished that missed opportunity just over a minute later, when Arcobello struck for the second time on the power play. Cycling the puck effectively with the man advantage, the Barons found Anton Lander along the right boards, who slid a cross-ice pass to the wide open Arcobello inside the left circle. He took a low, one-time shot that slipped through the pads of Dubnyk as he crossed the crease at 6:49. The Bulldogs were left regretting another missed breakaway when Martin St. Pierre stole a pass at his defensive blue-line and skated in against Bachman 11 minutes into the second. Two Barons defenders interfered just enough with St. Pierre to make his wrist shot a weak one, and Bachman easily kicked it aside. Dubnyk faced 30 shots through two periods, and he was forced into several difficult saves in the periods final minutes. A glorious chance to level the game passed the Bulldogs by with six and a half minutes to play in the third. Dumont broke loose in the Barons zone and slid a pass to a wide open Mike Blunden in the low slot, but he was unable to get his stick on the moving puck. Lefebvre was disappointed with his teams lacklustre offence, particularly given their desperate situation in the AHL standings, where they sat seven points back of a playoff spot entering play on Friday. "We had some chances, but its not enough," he said. "Were fighting for our lives right now, and thats a team that we want to keep pace with. Those were two points that we desperately needed." Hamilton was 0-for-6 on the power play while Oklahoma City was 1-for-6. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jersey ' ' '
