Sydney Kings captain Kevin Lisch sank a clutch shot in the final second to lift his team to a thrilling 79-77 win over the Cairns Taipans in a fiery NBL battle at Qudos Bank Arena.In a clash that had a bit of everything, the lead changed hands throughout before Lisch had the final say with his match-winning heroics.Sydney managed to overcome a poor shooting night (4/17 from three-point range) to claim their sixth win of the season and remain in top spot.The victory also avenged Saturday nights away loss to Cairns.Sydney were trailing 31-28 with just under four minutes remaining in the first half when American forward Greg Whittington was hit on a fast-break dunk attempt by Cairns centre Nnanna Egwu.That sparked plenty of pushing and pulling by players from both sides, while Taipans coach Aaron Fearne was also momentarily involved as he separated two players.The three referees reviewed footage of the incident and issued unsportsmanlike fouls on Egwu, Cairns forward Mark Worthington and Kings duo Jason Cadee and Aleks Maric.Play resumed and Sydney got their noses in front 39-36 at halftime, but Worthington wanted it known the Taipans werent backing down.We have an all in mentality, he told Fox Sports at halftime.We thought what Jason Cadee did was unwarranted so we went all in.Cairns had picked up where they left off from Saturdays win over Sydney, out-hustling and out-muscling the Kings for a 22-16 quarter-time lead.The game all but ground to a halt for the first six minutes of the second period, as scoring dried up at both ends of the court.Thats when Egwus foul on Whittington sparked the melee that almost spilled over the sideline in front of the Kings bench.The Taipans came out aggressively after the break and scored the first 10 points of the third period.Sydney responded with a brief scoring spurt but they werent as suited to the slow pace as the visitors and were down 55-54 at three-quarter time.Lisch and Brad Newley top-scored for Sydney with 15 points apiece, while Nate Jawai led Cairns with a game-high 19.It got pretty fiery, Cairns coach Aaron Fearne said of the altercation.I didnt appreciate Worthington getting put in a headlock and held in a headlock. It was out of line.It was a pretty major scuffle but Id have to go back and have a look at the video and see if it was out of line and if it was dealt with the right way.Kings coach Andrew Gaze hopes his side learned something.In hindsight it didnt hurt us, and theres something to be said about flying the flag and bringing the guys together, the bonding and looking after each other, but I said dont do it again, Gaze said.It got the crowd involved. We dont want to see it in our game, but a bit of emotion and passion is OK. Cheap Nike Air Force 1 Wholesale .

ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- The Detroit Lions had some explaining to do when they signed free agent tight end Andrew Quarless.Theres no doubt Quarless could fill a need for the Lions, with tight ends Eric Ebron and Brandon Pettigrew recovering from injuries. The issue is that Lions general manager Bob Quinn said previously he had zero tolerance for domestic violence and dangerous weapons, and Quarless was sentenced to a year of probation and fined $1,000 for firing a gun in Miami Beach, Florida, last year.Quarless has been suspended for the first two games of this coming regular season for violating the leagues personal conduct policy. Hes allowed to play during the preseason.We are aware of the upcoming NFL suspension of Andrew Quarless, Quinn said in a statement Monday.We have thoroughly researched the incident that caused the suspension and have talked at length with Andrew about this. Andrew has been forthright and honest about the situation and he has gone through the process within the legal system.As an organization we are comfortable with adding Andrew to the roster and look forward to seeing him compete for the rest of the preseason.After taking over as GM in January, Quinn told reporters: The two things that are zero tolerance are domestic violence and dangerous weapons. Those are the two things Im not going to stand for, I dont believe in. Thats how I feel.Coach Jim Caldwell saidd after practice Monday that its important to look at every case on its own.ddddddddddddObviously we take a look at anybody thats available for us and do our proper vetting and move on from there, Caldwell said.I certainly believe in second chances. Now mind you, Im not Father Flanagan -- some of you guys are too young to know who that is -- but we do our due diligence, and obviously I think the young man is certainly worth a second chance.The 27-year-old Quarless has been with Green Bay for the past six seasons. Hes caught 89 passes, including a career-high 32 in 2013.He missed most of last season with knee problems.Quarless said he talked to a lot of people in the Detroit organization, and the team had a chance to get to know him. Hes eager to put last years incident behind him.You can judge anybody. First youve got to look in the mirror first, before you judge somebody, he said. Its something I moved forward from, and Ive taken steps to move forward progressively, and Im just looking forward to being a part of this organization.The Lions also announced that they have signed linebacker Dominique Tovell, waived tight end Ben McCord and put wide receiver Andre Caldwell on injured reserve.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Throwback Baseball Detroit Tigers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Colorado Rockies Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Houston Astros Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Kansas City Royals Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Los Angeles Angels Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Los Angeles Dodgers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Miami Marlins Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Milwaukee Brewers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Minnesota Twins Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball New York Mets Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball New York Yankees Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Oakland Athletics Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Philadelphia Phillies Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Pittsburgh Pirates Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball San Diego Padres Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball San Francisco Giants Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Seattle Mariners Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball St. Louis Cardinals Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Tampa Bay Rays Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Texas Rangers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Toronto Blue Jays Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Washington Nationals Jerseys ' ' '
