CHICAGO -- John Henson cracked a smile as he headed down the court after his desperate turnaround splashed through the net.http://www.atleticomadridsoccer.es/ni-os-jackson-martinez-atletico-madrid-autenticas-camiseta-15-16-nike-11-soccer-navy-away-la-liga-club.html . It was that kind of night for Milwaukee. Henson had 25 points, 14 rebounds and six blocked shots, and the Bucks beat the Chicago Bulls 78-74 on Tuesday in a matchup of slumping teams racked by injuries. "We just kept fighting," Henson said. "Man, we just kept fighting. As a young team, a scrappy team out here, thats what we got to do." Brandon Knight added 19 points and 10 boards for Milwaukee, which had dropped three of four. O.J. Mayo was just 2 for 12 from the field, but had seven assists and made a couple of big plays in the fourth quarter. Milwaukee only used nine players due to injuries, and Miroslav Raduljica logged all of 83 seconds. Chicago went with an eight-man rotation after Joakim Noah was sidelined by a bruised right thigh. "It doesnt matter," Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said. "Everyone whos called upon is capable of doing their job. Eighteen turnovers hurt us. In the first half we had great ball movement with 14 assists. In the second half, we have to do better." Mike Dunleavy scored 18 of his 24 points in the second quarter, but the Bulls struggled on offence in the latter part of their fourth loss in five games. Carlos Boozer, the only starter from the season opener at Miami, had 21 points and 12 rebounds. "This is a winnable game," point guard Kirk Hinrich said. "Just couldnt play well enough to do it." The Bucks (5-16) trailed by seven at halftime, but cut the deficit to two heading to the fourth quarter, and then opened the final period with a 10-2 run. Hensons dunk over Tony Snell off a pass from Mayo made it 65-59 with 8:30 to go. Chicago (8-11) had a chance after Dunleavy made a 3 to trim Milwaukees lead to 73-72 with 1:59 remaining. But Henson responded with a long turnaround jumper as the shot clock expired, prompting the wide grin as he headed back to play defence. "I guess the basketball gods were with us tonight," Bucks coach Larry Drew said. "It was a hope and a prayer. It went in." Ekpe Udoh then blocked Snells 3-point attempt, and the Bucks held on for their third road win of the season. Thibodeau said Noah aggravated the injury during the morning shootaround. He said he thinks the big man will be able to travel to New York for Wednesdays game against the Knicks. Luol Deng (left calf tightness) and Jimmy Butler (sprained right big toe) were ruled out earlier in the day. Derrick Rose is likely out for the season after right knee surgery. "Theyre missing guys. Were missing guys," Knight said. "But at the end of the day, thats how its going to be (in) NBA basketball. Youre never going to have all your guys, more than likely." It was the same problem on the other side for Milwaukee, which was without reserve guard Gary Neal due to plantar fasciitis in his left foot. Neal, who played seven minutes in the Bucks 90-82 loss to Brooklyn on Saturday, did not make the trip to Chicago. Centre Zaza Pachulia broke his right foot in last weeks 105-98 loss to Detroit, and the Bucks also are playing without injured starters Larry Sanders (thumb) and Caron Butler (knee). All those injuries took a toll on both teams, especially early on. The Bulls shot 25 per cent (6 for 24) in the first quarter, and the Bucks struggled to 33 per cent (7 for 21) in the second quarter. Dunleavy helped Chicago find its stride after the sloppy start. He had 10 points in a 12-2 spurt that gave Chicago a 40-31 lead with 2:44 left in the first half. Dunleavy was 7 for 7 from the field and 3 for 4 at the line in the second quarter. Snell had nine first-half points as the Bulls carried a 42-35 lead into the break. "The main thing is we have to play hard and compete and grind it out," Dunleavy said. "You can do that whether Joakim Noah or Luol Deng or Derrick Rose is in the lineup or not. Thats a mindset thing. Thats not a skill thing." NOTES: It was the first game of the season between the teams. They split four games last season, with the two wins for each side coming on the road. ... Bulls rookie Erik Murphy made a jumper in the first quarter for his first NBA basket. He played 10 minutes after playing just 15 minutes all season coming into the night. http://www.atleticomadridsoccer.es/ni-os-jesus-gamez-atletico-madrid-autenticas-camiseta-15-16-nike-18-soccer-rojas-blanco-stripes-home-la-liga-club.html .

Germany has two wins from two games against Armenia, 5-1 away in a World Cup qualifier in 1996 and 4-0 in the return game the following year.http://www.atleticomadridsoccer.es/customized.html .That sight softened the blow of what ended up as a 4-3 shootout loss to the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday night.Knowing their teammate was fine after a scary headfirst fall in the opening minute of the game helped calm the Maple Leafs.ATLANTA -- Harry Douglas made the most of his long-awaited opportunity to be more than a complement to star receivers Julio Jones and Roddy White in Atlantas offence. Douglas had seven receptions for a career-best 149 yards, including a 37-yard touchdown catch, to lead the Falcons to a 31-20 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. Matt Ryan also threw two touchdown passes to Jacquizz Rodgers as the Falcons (2-4) snapped a three-game losing streak. Douglas flourished as Ryans No. 1 target with Jones out for the season with a foot injury and White inactive for the first time in his nine-year career due to hamstring and ankle injuries. "Im the type of person that I never shy away from it," Douglas said. "Julio went down. Roddy wasnt playing. I wanted the challenge. Ive always been like that my whole life." Ryan completed 20 of 26 passes for 273 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions. Ryan said he expected a big game from Douglas, a fifth-year receiver who has never reached 500 yards receiving or had more than one touchdown catch in a season. "I dont think anyone in our locker room was surprised by his play," Ryan said. "Its what hes capable of doing. You may not know that about him because weve had those other guys." Atlanta managed only 18 yards rushing as running back Steven Jackson missed his fourth straight game with a hamstring injury. The loss left the Buccaneers (0-6) still looking for their first win. "Nobody wants to be in this situation," said Tampa Bay defensive end Adrian Clayborn. "Weve got to deal with it." Trailing 31-17, the Buccaneers held the ball for 18 plays and over 9 minutes in a marathon fourth-quarter drive that produced a first down at the Falcons 5. Four penalties on the possession, including a facemask call against Jackson that pushed the Bucs back to the 15, helped force Tampa Bay to settle for Rian Lindells 41-yard field goal with 5 minutes remaining. Lindell added his third field goal of the game, from 36 yards, with 2 minutes remaining. The Falcons ran out the clock after recovering an onside kick. Koke Atletico De Madrid. Tampa Bay running back Doug Martin left the game early in the third quarter with a shoulder injury and did not return. Martin had 11 carries for 47 yards before he was injured while attempting to catch a 16-yard pass near the left sideline. A side judge threw a penalty flag for an apparent unnecessary roughness on Falcons safety William Moore, but referee Walt Anderson withdrew the flag. Martin lay on his back for several minutes before walking off the field under his own power. He said X-rays "look fine" and the shoulder is not separated. "Were still evaluating what it is," Martin said. He said he is "not sure yet" if he would play in Thursday nights game against Carolina. "Just have to hope for the best," he said. Moore sacked Mike Glennon to force a fumble on Tampa Bays first possession. Safety Thomas DeCoud returned the fumble recovery 30 yards for a touchdown. Glennon, making his first road start, completed 26 of 44 passes for 256 yards and two touchdowns to Vincent Jackson. "He went on the road and showed he can handle the pressure on the road," said Tampa Bay receiver Mike Williams of Glennon. "As a team, weve got to help him and make more plays for him." Jackson, targeted on 22 passes, had 10 catches for 138 yards, including touchdown receptions of 59 yards in the second quarter and 1 yard in the third quarter. Jacksons second scoring catch was Tampa Bays first third-quarter touchdown this season. Entering the game, the Buccaneers had only 13 second-half points. Tampa Bay was called for 11 penalties for 103 yards. Following DeCouds touchdown, the Falcons stretched their lead to 14-0 on Ryans first touchdown pass to Rodgers, a 19-yarder early in the second quarter. Douglas added a 37-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter as the Falcons led 24-7 at halftime. After Tampa Bay cut the lead to 24-17 on Jacksons second touchdown catch, the Falcons answered with an 80-yard touchdown drive which ended with Rodgers 8-yard catch over the middle. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale JerseysCheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
