and J.D. McKissic, who returne

The Philadelphia 76ers and Orlando Magic began the NBA season with many new pieces to their respective puzzles. Discount Nike NBA Jerseys .They are both still trying to wrestle those pieces into place.The Magic, who have a new coach in Frank Vogel and two new big men in Serge Ibaka and Bismack Biyombo, bring an 0-3 record into Tuesday nights game against the Sixers (0-2) in Philadelphia.As Vogel told the Orlando Sentinel before Saturdays road game against the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Magic have not been sharing the ball as much as he would like.I think our guys are trying, he said. Their hearts are in the right place. But too many guys are trying to do it themselves and not letting the game come (to them). Playing for each other -- we have to do that better or were not going to change our fortunes.While five Orlando players are averaging 10 points a game or more, the Magic are averaging just 92.3 a game while giving up 107.Ibaka, who was acquired in an offseason trade with Oklahoma City, managed just 18 points in his new teams first two games but scored 19 against Cleveland. He shoot 7 of 12 from the floor.Super encouraging, guard Elfrid Payton told the Sentinel after the game. With teams trying to go small now, hes going to be able to punish teams inside. So hes got to make a conscious effort to go in there. He shoots the ball from mid-range well, and he can knock down a 3. So its tough to tell him to stay inside. But when he has smaller guys on him, he can really punish them.Biyombo, known more for his defense, is averaging 2.5 points and six rebounds a night.Philadelphia has added center Joel Embiid to the mix this season. The third overall pick in the 2014 draft, Embiid missed his first two seasons as a result of two foot surgeries.He has averaged 17 points in 19 minutes a game over the Sixers first two outings, while on a minutes restriction. He will not play more than 20 a game for the foreseeable future.Coach Brett Brown also told reporters at practice Monday that Embiid will not travel to the teams game in Charlotte, N.C., on Wednesday.Brown added that while Jahlil Okafor will be available against the Magic on Tuesday, his plan is to hold the center out of the game, as he is recovering from knee surgery. Okafor will then play against the Hornets.Besides Embiid, the only other Sixer scoring in double figures is Sergio Rodriquez, who is filling in at point guard for the injured Jerryd Bayless (wrist). Rodriguez, who played in the NBA from 2006-10 but was overseas the last six seasons, is scoring at a 13 point-per-game clip. He is also chipping in seven assists a night.Another newcomer, forward Dario Saric, has missed 17 of 21 shots to date. Saric, who was acquired in a draft-night trade with Orlando in 2014, played in Turkey the last two years. Authentic Nike NBA Gear . Howard Ganz, an MLB lawyer, said in a letter to U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos that Rodriguezs claims do not come "remotely close" to what is needed to overturn an arbitration decision in federal court. Stitched Nike NBA Jerseys . -- Jacksonville wide receiver Cecil Shorts will likely be a game-time decision whether hell play Sunday in the Jaguars home game against the San Diego Chargers. .Y. -- The Buffalo Sabres have recalled forward Kevin Porter and defenceman Chad Ruhwedel from the minors as part of a five-player roster shuffle made by the NHLs worst team. ATLANTA -- One final defensive stand to close out Thursday nights preseason win over Washington was a perfect ending for Falcons coach Dan Quinn.Quinn, the former Seattle defensive coordinator beginning his second season in Atlanta, was pleased his defense allowed only 79 yards rushing and 234 total yards in the 23-17 win over the Redskins. A review of the game film also left Quinn pleased on Friday with the closing speed on tackles.It showed the speed and thats what were looking to see, Quinn said Friday. ... How fast can we close to make those kind of hits. There were probably about three or four occasions where we saw a number of either safeties or linebackers or a combination really close to go finish.Washington took possession at its 29 with 1:30 remaining and was held without a first down.Following the game, Quinn said linebackers Sean Weatherspoon and DeVondre Campbell and cornerback Brian Poole stood out for their contact hits we want.On Friday, he added linebackers Deion Jones and LaRoy Reynolds and safety Kemal Ishmael to his list of players making strong tackles.Campbell and Jones are rookies whose speed also has been evident in training camp.Its an important part of how we want to play, Quinn said. I felt it was a start of what it would feel like. Weve still got a long way to go, but I think they have established how hard they have to play.All the news wasnt good. The first-team offense with quuarterback Matt Ryan struggled. Nike NBA Jerseys From China. Ryan was 0 for 4 passing and did not lead the offense to a first down on his two possessions.When you get one of those situations in the preseason, you can learn from it, adjust from it and hopefully when we get those chances in the regular season, well be more productive in that situation than we were tonight, Ryan said.Quinn said he stuck with his planned substitution plan even though the starters wanted another chance to get untracked.They all wanted more turns, for sure, he said. That was just my decision not to allow that to happen.Among the standouts were backup receivers Aldrick Robinson, who had three catches for 118 yards, and J.D. McKissic, who returned a kickoff 101 yards for a touchdown.Newly signed defensive end Dwight Freeney was held out against the Redskins and is expected to make his debut at Cleveland.But dont expect to see Freeney on the field for many snaps.I dont think hell lead the league in play time this preseason, if you know what I mean, Quinn said.Game notes Ishmael has a sprained shoulder and will be held out of Sundays practice. S Keanu Neal (trunk) and TE Levine Toilolo (hand) are expected to return to practice after being held out of the game.---AP NFL website: and Cheap MLB Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping cheap nfl jerseys Cheap Jerseys USA China Jerseys Cheap NFL Authentic Jerseys Cheap Jerseys For Sale Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys Cheap NBA Jerseys ' ' '
