PHOENIX -- The San Antonio Spurs continue to be the NBAs best road team.The Spurs turned a close game early in the fourth quarter into a romp, getting 18 points and 10 rebounds from Kawhi Leonard and 18 points and nine boards from Pau Gasol in a 107-92 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Thursday night.The Spurs (21-5) withstood the Suns attempt to push the tempo after San Antonio had played Wednesday, and held Phoenix to 40 percent shooting. They improved to an NBA-best 14-1 on the road.We havent really thought about that much, guard Danny Green said. Took one loss last time on the road, wanted to bounce back and play better.San Antonio took a 10-point lead early in the third quarter, but the Suns wouldnt go away until the fourth. Leandro Barbosa flipped in a finger roll and was fouled with 10:08 to play in the game, and the Suns 77-76 lead was their first since midway through the second quarter.The Spurs responded with an 11-0 run and clamped down defensively to take control of the game for good, and beat Phoenix for the eighth consecutive time.We have such a deep team, we really dont play our guys a lot of minutes. So our effort is pretty steady, Gasol said. When teams ramp it up and try to increase the intensity, they make their runs, they might get ahead at times, but then its hard for them to sustain it for 48 minutes.Devin Bookers 17 points led the Suns, who missed a chance to win consecutive games for only the second time this season.Our guys fought and gave all they could. Some games end up like this, coach Earl Watson said.Phoenix took a 39-33 lead on Tyson Chandlers dunk with 4:44 to go in the first half, but the Spurs scored 18 of the final 22 points of the half for a 51-43 lead. Two came from a steal and dunk by Leonard and his 3-pointer with 39.5 seconds left.For us we have a couple of more hurdles to get over, but that is the biggest hurdle, the fourth quarter, Suns forward Jared Dudley said. When teams go on big runs we lose our confidence. We lose our composure.TIP-INSSpurs: The Spurs moved to 6-1 in the second of back-to-back games this season. ... F LaMarcus Aldridge returned to the starting lineup after being rested Wednesday night and had a rough first half of shooting, but finished with 14 points. He passed the ball when he needed to, he scored when he needed to, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said.Suns: F T.J. Warren missed his 13th straight game due to a head injury ... F Alex Len missed his second straight with a right hip bruise. ... The Suns recalled G Tyler Ulis, F-C Alan Williams and F Derrick Jones Jr. from Northern Arizona of the D-League. Ulis and Williams got major minutes Wednesday night in a one-game stint with Northern Arizona, then were brought back to the Suns.IN MEMORY OF SAGERBoth teams coaches expressed sorrow regarding the passing of longtime NBA reporter Craig Sager, for whom a moment of silence was observed in the arena before tipoff.Popovich spoke only of Sager for about 2 minutes before the game. Watson said it was his and many other players dream to be interviewed by Sager.Every genius is never afraid of being exactly who they are. And he was a genius at his job, a genius at everything that hes done, Watson said. He stayed true to himself and we all embraced him.Booker wore a brightly colored Sager tribute T-shirt during warmups.KNIGHT TAKES TWO HITSSuns G Brandon Knight absorbed two hard fouls on consecutive possessions in the third quarter. He took a forearm from Manu Ginobili, then was knocked off-balance and fell to the court with a thud when Patty Mills yanked his arm going up for a layup. Knight remained in the game and shot free throws after both fouls were reviewed and ruled common fouls, to the dismay of the home crowd.UP NEXTSpurs: Host New Orleans on Sunday night before a three-game trip.Suns: At Oklahoma City on Saturday. Authentic J.A. Happ Jersey . Westbrook has missed 27 games since having a procedure on Dec. 27 to deal with swelling in his injured right knee — the third operation on the knee in nine months. Authentic Marcus Stroman Jersey . Miikka Kiprusoff had just announced his retirement after a decade-long run in Calgary and it would be up to Berra and Ramo to fill the void. http://www.cheapbluejaysjerseys.us/ . - Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie never doubted he would bring back coach Dennis Allen for a third year despite back-to-back 4-12 records. Authentic Roy Halladay Jersey . -- The Magic have their first victory of the new year. Authentic Joe Carter Jersey . The defence is doing its part, too. Drew Brees threw a pair of touchdown passes in the first half and the guys on the other side made sure that was enough, sending the Saints to a 17-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night. CINCINNATI -- Greg Ward Jr. threw an interception in the end zone. Cincinnati responded by going down the field, getting a touchdown and grabbing the lead and the momentum.For the first time this season, No. 6 Houston was on the road and feeling the pressure. How would the Cougars respond?Ward ran for two fourth-quarter touchdowns, and the Cougars fabulous defense returned a couple of interceptions for touchdowns as they pulled away to a 40-16 victory over Cincinnati on Thursday night.The fourth quarter exemplified a veteran team thats played in big games, coach Tom Herman said. They go down and score and we come back and take the lead.Nobody was under the spotlight more than Ward, who sat out a 42-0 victory over Lamar on Saturday because of a sore shoulder. He came through pregame warmups without an issue, and got treatment on the sideline between series.They were keeping my shoulder warm on the sideline, Ward said. It tends to get tight. I was thankful to be out there.The Cougars (3-0, 1-0 American Athletic) trailed 16-12 early in the fourth quarter before Ward and the defense took over.Ward dispelled any worries about his arm with a 39-yard touchdown pass on the Cougars second series. He was 24 of 36 for 326 yards with two interceptions, and he ran 26 times for 73 yards.We put in a defense just for him, some guys that were faster, Cincinnati coach Tommy Tuberville said. We did a good job in pass coverage and hed just pull it down and run. Thats hard to defend.Houstons defense took away any semblance of a running game from Cincinnati (2-1, 0-1) and accounted for 16 points on its own -- a safety and the two interception returns by Steven Taylor and Howard Wilson.The Cougars havent allowed any of their last five opponents to rush for 100 yards. Cincinnati managed only 30 yards rushing, putting too much pressure on redshirt sophomore Hayden Moore, whose two fourth-quarter interceptions allowed the Cougars to pull away.Moore had never faced a defense so good. He made an impact early with a 61-yard touchdown pass , but the lack oof a running game was tough to overcome.dddddddddddd Moore finished 21 of 37 for 275 yards with two touchdowns, two interceptions and three sacks.You cant beat any good team if you cant run the football, Tuberville said. They put all the pressure on our quarterback and receivers and they dictated the game to us.THE TAKEAWAYHOUSTON: Oh that defense. The Cougars didnt need to get a lot out of their offense -- and Ward wasnt at his best -- in order to win a tough league game on the road. Thats another good sign in a season that opened with a 33-23 win over Oklahoma.It was ugly for a long time, Herman said. I think well be OK if we can take care of the self-inflicted wounds.CINCINNATI: The Bearcats have been overly reliant on a pass-heavy offense the last two years. The defenses showing on Thursday was encouraging -- it simply wore down. The defense also looked solid during a 38-20 win at Purdue on Saturday, coming up with five interceptions.We got a little tired at the end, Tuberville said. The defense was out there forever.POLL IMPLICATIONSHOUSTON: The Cougars have their highest ranking since they were No. 3 in 1990. Any chance to move up? The top three teams in the poll -- Alabama, Florida State, Ohio State -- all play road games against ranked teams this week, while Michigan and Clemson are at home.CINCINNATI: The Bearcats got one vote in this weeks poll, and did nothing to suggest they deserve more.UP NEXTHOUSTON: The Cougars will be looking for another easy time at Texas State on Sept. 24. Last year, Ward led them to a 59-14 win by throwing for four touchdowns and running for two more as Houston piled up 689 yards.CINCINNATI: The Bearcats host Miami of Ohio on Sept. 24 for the Victory Bell. Theyve won 10 in a row over their local rival, although Moore had to overcome four fourth-quarter turnovers last year to pull out a 37-33 win in Oxford.---AP college football website: www.collegefootball.ap.org China Womens NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys China Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Black Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Wholesale ' ' '
