were ousted in the opening round

NEW YORK -- A small but spirited cheer broke out in a corner of Barclays Center, a contrast to the boos that rained down for much of the second half. Timofey Mozgov had just grabbed his career-high 20th rebound late in Denvers 111-87 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday night, and the players on the Nuggets bench were thrilled. "Its just a great deal for us and for him. He works extremely hard and he did a hell of a job going against their bigs," Nuggets guard Nate Robinson said. Mozgov, Robinson and the rest of the subs are providing plenty for the Nuggets to celebrate lately. Mozgov also scored 17 points in another superb effort by the Denver bench, and the Nuggets raced to their seventh straight victory. Kenneth Faried and Jordan Hamilton each added 15 points for the Nuggets, who got 57 points from the NBAs second-highest scoring second unit. That wasnt quite the 72 they rang up against Toronto on Sunday, but it was more than enough to dominate the third quarter against the short-handed Nets. Denver outscored Brooklyn 31-15 in the period that has given the Nets season-long problems, putting it away with a 15-0 run midway through the quarter. "We just kept attacking. Thats what were going to do all season. Were going to keep attacking teams," said Robinson, who had to shoot two free throws lefty after a hard landing on his right wrist. "Were never going to stop playing hard. Were going to play as hard as we can for as long as we can, no matter the results." Joe Johnson scored 22 points for the Nets, who still havent won consecutive games this season and fell to 5-13 heading into their nationally televised first meeting Thursday with the just-a-little-worse Knicks (3-13). Andray Blatche added 15 for the Nets, playing without injured starters Paul Pierce and Deron Williams. "Cant hang our heads and feel sorry for ourselves because no one in the league is going to feel sorry for us," Brooklyns Kevin Garnett said. "But need to figure this out soon. I dont think anyone around here is having fun and losing is definitely not fun." The Nets shook up their coaching staff before the game, with Jason Kidd reassigning Lawrence Frank to a non-bench role in which he will write daily reports but wont be at games or practices. Kidd said he and his former coach when he played for the Nets had "different philosophies." Kidd hired Frank not long after beating out Brian Shaw for the job in June. Shaw, a longtime successful NBA assistant, interviewed just after Kidd and thought he had a good chance at the Nets job. Instead, he replaced George Karl in Denver and has found much smoother sailing. The Nets trailed by just five after Alan Andersons layup with 7:35 left in the third quarter before Denver ran off 15 straight, including consecutive dunks by Faried and Wilson Chandler, and later back-to-back jumpers by Darrell Arthur to make it 80-60. The Nets were a dismal 4 for 15 and outrebounded 15-7 in the quarter, which ended with some of the loudest boos of the season at Barclays Center. "Guys are starting to look like they had been in games that we had let go of the rope," Kidd said. "So thats something that weve got to address and get better at." The Nuggets reserves average 45.2 points, trailing only the Los Angeles Lakers, who won here last week. Shaw went early to the 7-foot-1 Mozgov during Brook Lopezs 10-point first quarter, and the Nets All-Star centre had only two more the rest of the game. "All we do, we just try to bring energy in the game and play hard. The harder you play, the more you stay on the court," Mozgov said. "I want to stay on the court 49 minutes, but I know thats not possible. But I want to stay on the court as much as possible, so Im going to just push hard. Thats it." Coming home did little to help Brooklyn, which is actually on its first homestand of the season. The Nets havent played consecutive games at Barclays Center, and Thursdays game will make them the last NBA team to have played two in a row in their own building. The Nets shot 55 per cent in the first quarter in opening a 29-27 lead. The Nuggets sprinted by them, scoring 31 points in the second to bring a 58-50 advantage to the locker room. NOTES: The Nets started a stretch of 9 of 12 games at home. ... The Nuggets made seven 3-pointers, ending their franchise-record streak with eight or more at eight games. ... Nets reserve Andrei Kirilenko, who has been limited to just four games because of back spasms, said before the game he has no timetable for his return after a couple of previous setbacks when he thought he was close.

"The prime minister appeared to be interested in a bid from Italy for 24, because he has realized that the games can serve as a catalyst for development for a city and a country," Bach told The Associated Press on Saturday.

Nine-year veteran Danny Granger did not make his debut with the Clippers because of a technicality on the teams active list, which is signed by coach Doc Rivers before every game and relayed to the officials.

The roster changes have been constant and continuous since late last year, but even with their 46-man roster set for the start of the season, the banged-up Bombers will be kicking off Week 1 with a handful of fresh faces and back-ups in the starting lineup.NORFOLK, Va. -- St. Johns can sit back and relax for a while if it can win Game 5 of its American Hockey League Eastern Conference semifinal series Tuesday in Norfolk. The IceCaps got first-period goals by Carl Klingberg and Jason Jaffray in coasting to a 5-1 win Monday over the Admirals and hold a 3-1 lead in their best-of-seven semifinal series. St. Johns added goals from Jerome Samson and Eric ODell in the second period and another by ODell in the third, moving into position to win the series Tuesday and advance to the Eastern final while Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and Providence decide the other finalist. That series is tied 1-1 with Game 3 set for Wednesday. "We talked about having a killer instinct at the start of the playoffs," said Jaffray, the St. Johns captain. "If you get a chance to finish off a team, youve got to jump all over them. Weve got a chance (Tuesday). "As much as we enjoy playing in front of our home fans at Mile One Centre, any chance to send a team packing is a huge opportunity." St. Johns, which finished fourth in the East during the regular season, is the highest-seeded team left in the conference after all three division winners-- Manchester, Binghamton and Springfield-- were ousted in the opening round. The IceCaps goals Monday looked familiar. Klingberg set up shop in front of the Admiral net, screening goalie Brad Thiessen in position to tip in a shot from the blue line by Josh Morrissey to earn a 1-0 lead with only 4:11 played in the opening period. The play replicated one that earned St. Johns two goals only two nights earlier in Game 3. Jaffrays goal came when he was at the net to tip in a shot by Morrissey with 14:39 played. "Youve got to make it tough on any goalie you play against," Jaffray said. "Any scouting report is going to say get traffic, put rebounds uppstairs and get the dirty goals.dddddddddddd Weve got a lot of them in the last couple of games." The antidote to St. Johns scoring from in front of the net is clear. "Were just not blocking enough shots," Norfolk coach Trent Yawney said of the IceCaps getting the puck to the net in the first place. "The bottom line is that they blocked more shots than we did. When theyve got people standing in front of the net, and were not filling shooting lanes, were not doing a good enough job." Jaffrays goal was the IceCaps fourth with a man advantage in the past three games. It was scored against what was the AHLs best penalty-killing unit during the regular season, but one which has struggled during the playoffs. Samson scored from the right faceoff circle to make it 3-1. He had the winning goal in Game 3 from the same spot. ODells first goal came when he managed to nudge the puck through a seven-player pileup in the crease that included Thiessen. ODells second goal was easier, scored after Thiessen rejected a shot by Jaffray, but left the puck on the doorstep. ODell skated past, stopped and reached back to tap it into the net. St. Johns goalie Michael Hutchinson gave up only a second-period goal to Norfolks Andre Petersson, while turning away 28 shots for the win. Thiessen made 23 saves in defeat. "A lot of teams have come back from 3-1 deficits and have this playoff year," Yawney insisted of his players. "They can be a part of that group, or they can be part of the group that says theyve had enough. Well see (Tuesday). But Im not giving up." Thats something St. Johns expects after its first really easy game of the playoffs. "Were expecting a huge push from them," Jaffray said. "Theyre playing for their season." The IceCaps are playing for a little extra rest. Wholesale NFL Jerseys cheap nfl jerseys ' ' '
