but the Pacers responded with six straight and from wxy1123's blog

Weve spent all week covering the numerous storylines leading up to the 101st Grey Cup, from Kent Austin and Andy Fantuz returning to Saskatchewan in Black and Gold to the Roughriders looking to become the third straight team to win the championship at home. http://www.thenfllockerroom.com/San-Francisco-49ers-Roger-Craig-Jersey/ . Those storylines however, mean little come Sunday when all that remains are two teams battling for the Grey Cup on a very, very cold field at Mosaic Stadium. The Saskatchewan Roughriders and Hamilton Tiger-Cats finished the regular season just a game apart, with the Riders finishing second in the West with an 11-7 record and the Ticats second in the East at 10-8. From there each team took the long route to the Grey Cup, hosting and winning division Semi-Final matchups before pulling off upsets on the road in the Finals to book their Grey Cup tickets. The similarities dont end there, with each team led by electrifying running backs frequently featured on highlight reels and veteran quarterbacks with questions still left to answer. Both Darian Durant and Henry Burris carry reputations of QBs who fade when the lights shine brightest. Durant will be looking to finally put those questions to bed with his first Grey Cup win while Burris, who has previously won a Grey Cup as a starter, will be looking to cement his already stellar CFL legacy. The Roughriders were the team to beat in the first half of the regular season, winning eight of their first nine including their only two meetings with the Ticats, before running into some struggles in the second half. Conversely, Hamilton struggled early on until their defence found their stride down the regular season stretch and into the playoffs. The highs and lows are in the past now as each team heads into the Grey Cup at the top of their game. Saskatchewan will enjoy a decided home field advantage Sunday. Can it propel them to a win, keeping intact the streak of host teams winning the Grey Cup, or will the Ticats be partying like its 1999? Your!

It turns out that run was the beginning of whats been a larger turnaround for the Sabres, who head to Winnipeg tonight with hopes of posting their longest winning streak in three seasons. http://www.thenfllockerroom.com/Pittsburgh-Steelers-Troy-Polamalu-Jersey/ .ca. Kerry, With just over a second left in the game, the L.A. Kings puck got behind Henrik Lundqvist. Derek Stepan got in, swatting the puck back under Lundqvist with his glove.The Indiana Pacers struck first in their Eastern Conference Finals series with the Miami Heat and theyll go for a commanding lead tonight when the two sides meet for Game 2 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Watch the action unfold live on TSN and TSN GO at 8:30pm et/5:30pm pt. The Pacers took Game 1, 107-96, Sunday afternoon in Indianapolis in a rematch of last years East Finals. The Pacers made six of their first seven shots from beyond the arc and shot 59.5 percent in the first half en route to a 55-45 cushion at the break. Indiana built its advantage up to as many as 19 in the third quarter and staved off every Heat push down the stretch in the wire-to-wire win. For the game, Indiana shot 51.5 percent from the floor and 42 percent from long range. "We played a pretty good basketball game. I think we can play better," Pacers coach Frank Vogel said after practice Monday. "I think were going to need to play better because I think Miami is going to come back and play a more complete basketball game so we have to elevate our level." The Heat lost only their second postseason game, but are staring in the face of something unprecedented. Since the Big Three of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh descended upon South Beach, the Heat have never gone down 0-2 in a series. "We had a couple of breakdowns. In the Eastern Conference Finals, you cant have that many breakdowns," James said after practice. "It wasnt a bad game at all. We scored 97 points, we got 54 points in the paint, we had 23 assists, only 11 turnovers. But we had some breakdowns defensively that allowed them to get some good shots." Paul George led the way for the Pacers with 24 points and seven assists. Indianas entire starting five scored in double figures and it moved to 6-0 this postseason when Roy Hibbert scores 10-or-more points. He finished with 19 points and nine rebounds. David Wesst tallied 19 points and seven boards, Lance Stephenson posted 17 points, eight assists and four rebounds and George Hill added 15 points for the Pacers, who improved to 4-4 at home in the playoffs after going an NBA- best 35-6 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse during the regular season. http://www.thenfllockerroom.com/Carolina-Panthers-Ted-Ginn-Jr-Jersey/. Wade netted 27 points, while James supplied 25 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and three steals for Miami. Chris Andersen finished with 14 off the bench and Ray Allen added 12. Indiana raced out to a quick 7-0 start after Hill hit a quick 3-pointer and sunk a pair of free throws before Stephenson nailed a step-back jumper. The Pacers led 30-24 following a quarter of play. It was their first 30-point opening frame since Feb. 27. James cut Indianas gap to 50-45 following a pair of buckets, but the Pacers netted the final five points of the half. The Pacers piled it on in the third. George capped an 8-0 burst with a layup to extend the margin to 69-52 just before the midway point of the stanza. Two Hibbert free throws made it 81-62, but James layup concluded an 8-0 Miami flurry to get the two-time defending champs within 81-70. Wades layup pulled Miami within 83-74 early in the fourth, but the Pacers responded with six straight and the Heat never got the deficit below double digits again. "We played with a great energy," George said. "Thats been an area where we lacked this postseason. Being consistent with our energy and urgency to start games off. I thought we brought that." Indiana finished the season 7-9 and limped through the playoffs, at times looking brilliant, and other times, inconsistent. Miami has looked generally brilliant during the playoffs, and despite never falling down 0-2, this incarnation of the Heat has won all four series in which they lost Game 1. The home team in this matchup is on a nine-game winning streak. Game 3 will be Saturday night in Miami.
