SALT LAKE CITY - This is a much different Utah Jazz offence than the one that had pronounced scoring struggles throughout last season. Matt Read Flyers Jersey .Utah dominated around the basket Saturday night and pulled away for a 118-91 victory over the Phoenix Suns.The Jazz overwhelmed Phoenix in numerous offensive categories. Utah outscored the Suns 66-42 in the paint and enjoyed a 52-34 edge in rebounds.It paid off for the Jazz in transition. Utah outscored Phoenix 35-21 in fast-break points and had a 19-11 edge in second-chance points. The Jazz simply got easier and easier looks at the basket as the game progressed.Thats impressive for us, Jazz centre Derrick Favors said. We need that for the rest of the year. We got to be able to control the paint and get easy points in the paint.Favours set the tone early for Utahs inside domination. He scored a career-high 32 points and added nine rebounds, mostly before halftime. Favours had 23 points on 9-of-15 shooting and six rebounds in the first half.His effort helped the Jazz overcome a slow start. They rallied from a 9-2 deficit by scoring on six straight possessions and outscored Phoenix 31-13 over the final 8:59 of the first quarter.They were denying the wings real hard, Favors said. Gordon (Hayward) and Alec (Burks) couldnt get open or nothing. I just decided to take it upon myself to get something going.Hayward added 24 points and 10 boards, while Trevor Booker added 14 points and nine rebounds off the bench to help the Jazz (1-2) get their victory of the season.Its nice to win, but we won doing the things that I think we want to do, Jazz coach Quin Snyder said. We were rewarded for playing the right way.Gerald Green had 16 points off the bench for the Suns (2-1), who shot just 14 of 43 (32.6 per cent) from the field in the second half. Markieff Morris added 13 points and Marcus Morris chipped in 12.Phoenix never really found an offensive rhythm after halftime. The Suns had a 60-59 lead early in the third quarter but Hayward scored 14 points in the period, including some big baskets in a decisive 11-0 run that put the Jazz back ahead 70-60.Phoenix never got closer than eight after that and Utah finished off the Suns when Dante Exum drained a 3-pointer to spark a 14-2 run that put the Jazz ahead 105-81 with 6:01 remaining.They did a good job tonight, Suns coach Jeff Hornacek said. They pushed the ball. They had a lot more energy. They had a couple of days to think about some of their recent games and they got after it.Utah opened a 49-31 lead with 7:35 remaining before halftime after Exum and Hayward drilled 3-pointers on back-to-back possessions. Markieff Morris started and ended a 14-0 run that cut that advantage to 59-55 at halftime.Phoenix simply ran out of gas in the second half, however, and the Suns dropped their third straight regular-season game against Utah dating to last season.___TIP-INSSuns: Phoenix won its first two regular-season games for the 12th time in team history. The Suns have made the playoffs 10 of the previous 11 times that happened. The lone exception was in 2013-14. ... 16 is a magic number for the Phoenix backcourt. When Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe each scored 16 or more points last season, the Suns went 16-0 in those games.Jazz: Exum and Hayward combined to shoot 6 of 9 (66.7 per cent) from 3-point range. Their teammates, however, went 0 for 16. ... Booker is averaging a team-high 12.0 points off the bench, along with 6.3 rebounds. His output ranks among the top 25 in the NBA for bench players in both categories. He was energy - just energy off the bench, Snyder said. He played the right way.FAMILY AFFAIR: Marcus Morris and Markieff Morris started strong for Phoenix. The twin brothers went 6 of 8 from the field in the first quarter and combined for 13 of the Suns 22 points. They finished with a combined 25 points on 11-of-20 shooting.UP NEXTSuns: Visit the Lakers on Tuesday.Jazz: Visit the Clippers on Monday. Brayden Schenn Flyers Jersey . Auld made 37 saves in a 5-3 loss to the Boston Bruins on Saturday. It was Ottawas first game without starter Anderson, who is out indefinitely after cutting his hand Wednesday night, and it was evident the team wasnt sure how to deal with the change in goal. Michal Neuvirth Flyers Jersey . A question that was repeatedly posed last season, and the season before that and in the 2011 campaign before that. http://www.flyershockeypro.com/authentic-boyd-gordon-flyers-jersey/ . Sundays game against the Colorado Rapids at B.C. Place Stadium has important implications in determining Major League Soccers playoff picture and will also mark the final game in the career of veteran South Korean defender Young-Pyo Lee.FONTANA, Calif. - Will Power raced with his head instead of his gut. Only a catastrophe was likely to derail his IndyCar Series championship, and the Australian knew he had to throttle the aggression that has made his career and occasionally wrecked it.Yet after Power moved patiently and safely through the Fontana field, a restart gave him a chance to seize the lead, if only for a few laps.Power couldnt resist. With one last daredevil move, he pulled in front for just long enough to ensure he wouldnt back into his long-awaited title.On that restart, I thought, Ive got to lead a lap and not go backward, Power said. That was the key to the race. No mistakes. Stay on top of the car. ... Its such an emotional moment for me. Im so grateful to have this opportunity.Power won his first series championship Saturday night, finishing ninth in the final race before raising the Astor Cup for the first time in a career filled with agonizing misses.Tony Kanaan won the 500-mile, double-points race under the lights at Fontana for his first victory of the season, but Power easily preserved his healthy points lead over second-place teammate Helio Castroneves to wrap up Team Penskes first IndyCar title since 2006.Power felt enormous stress, but didnt show it.That was one of the hardest races ever, Power said. Oh my God, I was crying. It just went on and on. I slowly made up position, and it was great.Starting from the back after a poor qualifying run, Power patiently picked his way through the field to the front. After that restart with 62 laps to go, the Australian roared into the lead with authority before falling back into a safe parade to the finish.Kanaan earned his first victory for his new Target Chip Ganassi Racing team, and the 17th of his career. The Brazilian is the 11th driver to win a race this season, tying the North American open-wheel record set in CART in 2000 and 2001.But the season belongs to Power, who showed much more relief than elation while overcoming still-fresh memories of heartbreak. He led the IndyCar points standings heading into the final race in 2010 and 2012, and he led with two races left in 2011 but he failed to claim the title each time, a fact that loomed in his mind for 250 laps at Fontana. Travis Konecny Jersey. Im so mentally exhausted right now, Power said. My hands are numb from holding onto the wheel so tight.Powers mother and wife watched from the pit area, sometimes turning their heads away in nervousness as the laps wound down and the spectre of Powers past loomed.They didnt need to worry: The pride of Toowoomba, Australia, finally is a champion.Roger Penskes team completed a dynamic season by claiming three of the top four spots in the overall standings, with fourth place wrapped up by Juan Pablo Montoya, who led the most laps at Fontana.Power and Penske jointly held up an Australian flag on the victory podium before Power raised the Astor Cup.Theres no question that Will deserves this championship, Penske said. He won a number of races, a lot of poles, and really brought some momentum to this team. He deserved it. He was the best road racer, and to see him operate on the oval this year showed me hes got it.Castroneves was essentially finished after a drive-through penalty for a pit entry violation with 31 laps to go, sliding out of the groove onto the track on his way into the pits. The penalty paved a championship finish for Power, who has been dinged numerous times this season by pit road penalties.For the sixth time in his career, Castroneves missed the title despite entering the final two IndyCar races in the top two in the points standings.It stings a little bit, but thats what motivates me, Castroneves said. Its good to be upset when you finish second in a championship. It gives me another reason to come back stronger next year and fix what we can fix to win a championship.Power beat Castroneves by 62 points for the title. Scott Dixon, the 2013 series champion, ended up third in the standings after a strong finish to the season.Rookie Mikhail Aleshins frightening crash late in a practice session reduced the field, but it didnt change Powers strategy. He was concerned by multiple crashes in the Fontana race in previous seasons, including his own spectacular flop in 2012.Instead, the race was nearly uninterrupted and Power did everything correctly.Thats 15 years of hard work, Power said. Its just surreal, man. I cant believe it. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
