SAN ANTONIO -- The Big Three rescued the San Antonio Spurs again. Rays Mallex Smith Jersey . Manu Ginobili scored 28 points, Tony Parker added 22, and Tim Duncan had 17 points and 13 rebounds to lead San Antonio to a 112-104 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Sunday night. After heavy contributions from the Spurs reserves and role players to start the season, Parker was jokingly asked if it was about time the Big Three stepped up. "So weve been playing bad the whole season. Thats what youre trying to say? The starting five, we (stink)?" Parker said, playing along. "(The bench has) been playing great; theyve been giving us a lot of energy." Boris Diaw had 14 points and Tiago Splitter added 11 for San Antonio (24-7). Struggling mightily on defence for much of the second half, the Spurs turned to their Big Three to close out the upstart Kings. Ginobili, Duncan and Parker scored San Antonios final 21 points in a 23-8 run to close the game. "It just showed their experience," Sacramento forward Rudy Gay said. "Theyre a great team, thats the reason their record is like it is year after year. Because they are great, they play great together. They know where they want the ball and they get it there exactly where they want it." DeMarcus Cousins had 29 points and 14 rebounds, Isaiah Thomas added 27 points and Gay had 24 for Sacramento (9-20). Shouting could be heard behind the closed doors of the Kings locker room following the game. Coach Michael Malone said his team was "a little frustrated" but "fine." The frustration came from a game that got away from the young Kings. Sacramento, which is 3-9 on the road, outscored San Antonio 38-24 in the third quarter to take an 87-87 lead entering the fourth. "They definitely turned up the heat," Malone said. "We had our way with them in the third quarter, but you know Pop is going to get on his team and their team is going to respond like they always do. I think it was a combination of them turning up the pressure, getting into us and us not responding to their pressure very well." Ginobili had consecutive 3s to tie the game at 102 with 3 minutes remaining. After being hobbled by injuries at the close of last season, Ginobili is continuing his resurgence. He is averaging 17.4 points in his past five games, and his best effort came at the right time. "Hes stronger this year than hes been in several years," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "Both the rest and weightlifting he did all summer. He feels real confident and good about his body. He had two days of rest before tonights game and it showed. His legs were great and he was very energetic." With Ginobili sparking the offence, the Spurs turned to Duncan to shut down the Kings inside. After Cousins scored all his points primarily against Tiago Splitter, the Spurs put the eight-time All-Defensive first-team member on the Kings centre. The move immediately paid off as Cousins committed a backcourt violation while attempting to take an inbounds from Ben McLemore. "(Cousins) is a tough guy to cover," Popovich said. "Hes so big. But Timmy did a good job to make him work early and making it tough for him to get the shot off. His length helped on DeMarcus down the stretch." Duncan then hit a free throw to complete a three-point play after drawing Cousins second foul on the ensuing possession. Cousins then shot an airball while attempting several spins and duck-and-under moves against Duncan. Parker followed with a 3 to put San Antonio up 108-102 with less than a minute remaining. "We kind of got into a panic and we didnt execute our game well," Cousins said. "Defensively, we broke down a lot." The Kings were 1 for 6 in scoring just two points in the final 3 minutes and committed two turnovers. "We got a little selfish at that point," Gay said. "The ball stuck a little bit, you cant do that." That wasnt the case in the third, with the Kings shooting 15 for 24 with Gay and Thomas combining for 27 points in the quarter. Thomas scored 15 points in the third, going 3 for 3 on 3-pointers with Mills and Parker closely guarding. NOTES: Kings F Carl Landry remains out with a torn left hip flexor muscle.

Louis Cardinals won the World Series last season, but after losing first baseman Albert Pujols to free agency and manager Tony LaRussa to retirement, they opened the 2012 season in 12th spot in the TSN.WASHINGTON - Members of the Senate Commerce Committee chastised the commissioners of the NFL, Major League Baseball, NBA and NHL for skipping a hearing Tuesday on domestic violence in pro sports, with one saying the absences reflect a lack of focus on the issue.They were all asked to be here, and leadership does start at the top. And I do think that its pretty convenient that none of them were able to appear today, said Sen. Kelly Ayotte, a Republican from New Hampshire. That does say something about: How big a commitment is there going to be on this?Instead of Commissioner Roger Goodell, for example, the NFL sent Troy Vincent, the executive vice-president of football operations, who ignored questions from reporters after the hearing and was led away by league employees. During his prepared testimony, Vincent — a former player — choked up while saying abuse was a way of life in his home when he was growing up because his mother was beaten.Domestic violence has become a main topic of conversation across the sports landscape in recent months, particularly in light of the case of former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice. He punched his then-fiancee — now wife — in a casino elevator and originally was suspended by Goodell for two games, then barred indefinitely after graphic video of the fight was released by TMZ. Eventually, though, that second punishment was erased by an arbitrator when Rice appealed.Vincent was asked Tuesday why the NFL didnt try harder to obtain the video from inside the elevator. He replied, I dont think there was a need, and said the league should have handed Rice a tougher punishment to begin with.At the time of Rices indefinite suspension, Goodell said the TMZ video spurred the tougher penalty.On Tuesday in New York, an appeal hearing began for Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, who was suspended for the rest of the season after pleading no contest too misdemeanour reckless assault for injuring his 4-year-old son with a switch. Rays Jake Faria Jersey. Senators pressed the representatives of the four leagues and their players unions — NBA Players Association Executive Director Michele Roberts was the only head of any of the eight organizations present — on matters such as whether they conduct their own investigations, independent of police; whether coaches or other team personnel are required to report instances of illegal conduct to law enforcement; and what sort of help is provided for abuse victims.Youve got to understand that the status quo is not acceptable. ... I think you all know that in your hearts, said Sen. Claire McCaskill, a Missouri Democrat. There will be more accountability in the future.During the hearing, Sen. Richard Blumenthal, a Connecticut Democrat, announced he was introducing legislation to end the leagues permanent antitrust exemptions, while Sen. Cory Booker, a New Jersey Democrat, said its ridiculous that the NFL enjoys tax-exempt status.Sen. Jay Rockefeller, the West Virginia Democrat who chairs the committee, said he called for the hearing because until very recently, the leagues records have not been good on the issue, and they have done little or nothing in response when players have been charged or convicted for domestic violence.There were some contentious moments involving the NFLPA, including when Sen. Dean Heller, a Nevada Republican, said: When youre worried more about getting back on the field, instead of stopping abuse, your priorities are out of order.Later, during an exchange with the NFLPAs deputy managing director, Teri Patterson, Heller said: Youre either for stopping sexual assault, domestic abuse and child abuse — or youre not.___Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at http://twitter.com/HowardFendrich___Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale Nike Baseball Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys China Wholesale NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Authentic Cheap NHL Jerseys Canada Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys Cheap Soccer Jerseys China NCAA Jerseys Cheap Nike NHL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap Football Jerseys Store Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Jerseys NCAA China Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys ' ' '
