That left Canada (4-2) in a four-way tie for second behind front-running Russia (5-1). "That was a strong performance by the team overall," Rocque said between games. "I think that win will help our confidence a lot. "We had two tough losses (Thursday) so carrying that forward, we know we can play well and compete at this level." Rocque took control of the match against Switzerland by scoring two with the hammer and registering steals in two ends en route to a 6-1 lead at the break. The Swiss rallied before the hometown crowd but the Canadians held on for the win. Rocque takes on American Cory Christensen (4-2) on Saturday.

Canada fell behind Scotland 6-1 through five ends but cut the deficit to 7-5 after eight. But Smith scored three in the ninth to clinch the victory. Calvert said coming back for the win over winless China (0-5) was good for his squad. "It was really good to bounce back and get a win like that," said Calvert. "The guys played really good and it gives us a lot of momentum going into (Saturday)." Canada faces Norway (5-0) and Switzerland (3-2) on Saturday. Jimmy Wilson Chargers Jersey . -- Chris Bosh made his case: He wanted to go for the win. Melvin Ingram Jersey . - Grizzlies controlling owner Robert Pera has removed the interim tag and named Chris Wallace as Memphis general manager, signing him to a multi-year contract keeping him with the franchise. CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The large icepack on LeBron James right shoulder said it all. Attempting 25 shots in a game will do that, the four-time MVP said. James overcame a mid-game shooting slump to score 34 points and help the Miami Heat beat the Charlotte Bobcats for the 15th straight time, 104-96 in overtime Saturday night. "The game presented itself for me to be aggressive and I was able to shoot a lot. It felt, well... thats why Im icing my shoulder now," James said with a laugh. James wasnt laughing much in the second quarter. After hitting his first five shots from the field, James missed his next nine shots. But he turned that around late in the second half, hitting 8 of 11 shots from the field to close the game, including two driving layups in overtime. "I came out shooting the ball extremely well and then I just hit a cold streak," James said. "My teammates kept confidence in me and I was able to get it going again." Chris Bosh added 25 points and seven rebounds for Miami. It was a costly loss for the Bobcats as starting point guard Kemba Walker sprained his left ankle midway through the third quarter when he stepped on Chris Boshs foot. He did not return. Walker left the locker room on crutches and with a boot on his left ankle. X-rays were negative, but coach Steve Clifford said Walker will have an MRI on Sunday to determine the extent of the damage. "Hes going to be out a while," Clifford said. Ironically, Al Jefferson missed the first two regular season games after he stepped on Boshs foot in the preseason and turned his ankle. Without their floor general, the Bobcats didnt stand much of a chance against the Heat. Jefferson had 22 points to lead the Bobcats, who were playing their fourth game in five nights. Jefferson had averaged 29.6 points over the previous three games, but the Heat clamped down on him in the second half and the Bobcats went cold from the field. "If he can catch it whenever he wants to, there is not much you can do," Bosh said. "We had traps and were able to give him different looks and I think that changed his timing up a little bit and played to our advantage." The Heat never trailed in overtime. James two free throws gave Miami a 98-95 advantage. After Mario Chalmers blocked Jeffersons put-back try froom behind, James then drove to the basket and scored on the right side to push the lead to five with 1:22 left in overtime. Jason Verrett Chargers Jersey. He tried the left side on the next possession against Anthony Tolliver and succeed with a driving left-handed layup with 36 seconds remaining to push the lead to six. Josh McRoberts and Tolliver each had costly turnovers in overtime for the Bobcats, who have lost 10 of their last 13. The Bobcats led most of the game but the Heat tied the score at 88 when James knocked down a jumper with 5 minutes left in regulation. But the teams only scored two points apiece in the final 5 minutes of the fourth quarter. Charlottes Ramon Sessions air-balled a 17-footer as the shot clock expired and James 18-footer rimmed out at the buzzer, sending the game to overtime. "I saw some grit," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "Our guys were not happy at halftime and wanted to take a lot more pride in our defence and not just be talk but to walk the talk. They did a good job. They had us moving around and were moving the ball and attacking us and getting great looks. The second half there was more of a concentration -- not only the effort but a discipline " Ray Allen started in place of Dwayne Wade, who rested his knee after scoring eight points in the Heats win Friday night at Philadelphia. Allen got the Heat started strong with a reverse layup and a drive down the lane to build an early 9-2 lead and finished with 12 points and nine rebounds. Greg Oden played in his second game since returning from a long layoff and looked plenty rusty with one point and three fouls in seven minutes. Despite the loss, Clifford said he felt good about his teams effort. "We played a good game," Clifford said. "I feel like were getting back to fighting, defending and staying in games. Hopefully that will help us going forward." NOTES: The crowd of 19,631 was the largest ever to see a Bobcats game at Time Warner Cable Arena on a night in which the team began selling its Hornets gear for the first time. The Bobcats will become the Hornets after this season. ... Along with Wade, Chris Andersen did not play for the Heat. ... James heard it from the fans after air-balling a 3-point attempt late in the first quarter. ... The Heat outrebounded the Bobcats 43-34.
