first quarter and had some good runs.

The Memphis Grizzlies have wanted Chandler Parsons since the forward knocked down an NBA-record 10 3-pointers in a half against them in January 2014. Cheap Air Max Shoes China . Now, they finally have the outside shooter theyve tried -- and failed -- to land for so many years.The Grizzlies also have someone eager to lure more top talent to Tennessee.Being the first big-name free agent to come here, I think thats special, and I want to be a trendsetter here, Parsons said Friday. Im going to work extremely hard to be the best basketball player I can be. But ... next summer you best believe Im going to be with him (general manager Chris Wallace) recruiting more talent to Memphis.The Grizzlies have brought big names to town trying to add a shooting threat to center Marc Gasol, forward Zach Randolph, defensive whiz Tony Allen and point guard Mike Conley. But Tayshaun Prince, Mike Miller on his second stint with the Grizzlies, and most recently Vince Carter came to Memphis later in their careers.Parsons, introduced Friday at a news conference, is 27 and shot 41.4 percent beyond the arc last season. He also has averaged 14.3 points in his five seasons. He chose Memphis over Portland once free agency opened July 1, agreeing to a four-year, $94 million deal that was quickly followed by Conleys reaching agreement on a five-year deal worth $153 million as part of a nearly $250 million spending spree by the Grizzlies.This is the guy weve been seeking for a number of years, Wallace said. He fits the description for that perimeter star to a T that weve been searching so aggressively for so many years, and we think hes got even more improvement in his bag of tricks.Memphis needed the big moves after some challenges over the past few months. Gasol needed surgery on his right foot in February, and Achilles tendinitis ended Conleys season in early March. Then the Grizzlies unexpectedly fired coach Dave Joerger on May 7 after only three seasons, and he quickly was hired by Sacramento.That opened up the job for David Fizdale, the former Miami Heat assistant who already had met Parsons years ago when coaching the NBAs rookie-sophomore game. Fizdale also hired J.B. Bickerstaff, an assistant in Houston, where Parsons played for three seasons, as his associate head coach, and Nick Van Exel, who worked in Dallas the past two seasons, as an assistant.I trust his coaching staff with my life, Parsons said.Parsons said he already knew about Memphis thanks to former Florida teammate Nick Calathes, and former Grizzlies guard Courtney Lee is one of his best friends. The combination made landing Parsons very easy when they met in Los Angeles, and he committed before Wallace and Fizdale left.He also gave Memphis a yes before Conley committed, but Parsons said they had been texting. Parsons says he is looking forward to playing with the point guard and for a team featuring what he believes is one of the best starting lineups in the NBA. Memphis has reached the playoffs six straight seasons, a streak second only to San Antonio (19) and Atlanta (9) in the league.Just looking at this core and what theyve established here over the years, like I said, I wanted to be a part of that, Parsons said. I think my game, my style of play fits perfectly with what theyre doing here. Nike Air max Shoes China . 1 position.

From Pierre LeBrun While Anaheim GM Bob Murray said earlier this season he was not going to trade Jonas Hiller despite the fact hes an unrestricted free agent on July 1, some sources have told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun that Murray might be willing to move another goalie. http://www.cheapairmaxchina.us/ . Oaklands loss to Seattle clinched the ALs best record for the Red Sox with one day to spare in the regular season. "I think everybody was kind of watching," catcher David Ross said. "Demp (Ryan Dempster) came out before he went to the bullpen and was just yelling that they lost. HOUSTON -- Of all the mistakes the Houston Texans made in a loss to Denver on Monday night one stood out above the rest.Brock Osweiler dropped back to pass on the first play of the fourth quarter and with no defender close to him he simply lost his handle on the ball and it tumbled slightly forward and to the ground.It was scooped up by a Broncos defender, serving as a lasting image of a night where Osweiler and Houstons supposedly upgraded offense did little right.Osweiler completed 22 of 41 passes for just 131 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions as the Texans (4-3) fell to 0-3 on the road this season with the 27-9 loss .He continued to overthrow and underthrow receivers, and at least two of the 6-foot-7 quarterbacks throws were batted down at the line.This, its safe to assume, isnt what the Texans were hoping for when they lured him away from the Broncos with that massive $72 million contract in an attempt to cure the quarterback woes that have nagged them for much of their existence.However coach Bill OBrien said he hasnt considered benching Osweiler, simply saying: No without further explanation when asked the question on Tuesday.OBrien has stood up for his quarterback week after week as outside criticism has grown, with many saying that Osweiler isnt worth the contract Houston gave him after he had started just seven games before this season.He continued to back Osweiler on Tuesday and insisted that everyone needs to do more to get the offense on track as the team prepares to host Detroit on Sunday .Hes a good player, OBrien said. I think its very difficult to come into a new system and a new team and just pick it up right away. I think everybody has to do a better job. Coaches, we all have to do better. I think he can play better. I know that the receivers can run routes better.Of course, Osweiler wasnt the only player who contributed to another lackluster offensive outing. Running back Lamar Miller injured his shoulder when he took a shot at the end of a run in the first quarter and played only sparingly after that. Nike Air Max Shoes 2017 China. Alfred Blue got the bulk of the carries after the first quarter and had some good runs.But his fumble midway through the third quarter when the Texans were down by five points and were driving with a first down might have been the most costly error of the game.The Broncos took advantage of that mistake with a touchdown and Osweilers fumble came on Houstons next possession to put the game out of reach.OBrien said Miller would be day to day this week with his shoulder injury and the Texans will be without right tackle Derek Newton for the rest of the season after he injured both knees on Monday night.OBrien said he didnt have any specifics on Newtons injuries, but said he spent the night in Denver and was heading back where he will consult with more doctors.I feel bad, just a tough injury, but I know hes going to work hard to come back, OBrien said.Newton has been one of Houstons most consistent linemen over the past few years and started all 16 games in each of the past three seasons. With Newton out, the Texans will look to veteran Chris Clark to take over.Every week OBrien talks about how he has to try different tactics to get the offense going and every week -- even following wins -- the group continues to underperform and fail to show the potential many expected entering the season. He was asked what else he can do to jumpstart the group.You never run out of things, OBrien said. No, I think every game is different. This is a long season ... theres always different challenges and things that present to you ... thats football. If there was perfection all the way around then why would we even do it? So, were challenged here and were going to try to do a better job.---Online: AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike Basketball Jerseys Hockey Jerseys China Supply Baseball Jerseys Football Jerseys Sale Authentic College Jerseys MLB Jerseys China Stitched Soccer Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Jerseys ' ' '
