CHARLOTTE, N. Ezekiel Elliott Jersey .C. -- After a listless first half, the Washington Wizards used a big third quarter run to beat the Charlotte Bobcats Bradley Beal scored 21 points and the Wizards used a 17-0 run in the third quarter to take control of what had been a close game and beat the Bobcats 97-83 on Tuesday night. John Wall helped ignite the decisive run. First he dunked off an alley-oop dunk pass from Booker and then when he grabbed a loose ball as the 24-second shot clock wound down and hit a 3-point shot from 35 feet at the shot-clock buzzer. Of the dunk off the high pass from Booker, Wall said: "We try them in practice sometimes. Hell be thinking hes a point guard sometimes, so I just told him to throw it up and he put it on the money." Marcin Gortat added 18 points for the Wizards, who improved to 15-17, while Wall contributed 17 points, Trevor Booker 12 and Martell Webster 10. Gortat added 12 rebounds and also stopped Al Jefferson, holding Charlottes centre to just six points. "I always feel good playing against Al and its a huge challenge for me also," Gortat said. "Hes a very difficult player to guard and very smart. I remember all the battles back in the West where he played for Utah and I played for Phoenix and we always battled every year for at least four times. I kind of learned to play against him. I know how to play against him and I was really focused." Gerald Henderson scored a season-high 27 points to lead the Bobcats, but questioned his own defensive intensity -- and that of his teammates on both ends of the court -- in the lacklustre defeat for Charlotte, which fell to 15-21 overall and 8-11 at home. Kemba Walker added 19 points and Ramon Sessions was the only other Bobcat to score in double figures with 10. "Coming into the game, it was a game where we really thought we could get back on track," Henderson said. "We beat Sacramento (on the road) in our previous game, but we just didnt come up with the plays. We got down in the third quarter and couldnt come back. "We didnt play with a lot of intensity on either end tonight. We lost track of them in that third quarter, and we didnt really play with a lot of force offensively, either. ... I feel like I could have played a lot better defence on Beal and some of their other perimeter players." The same couldnt be said for the Bobcats, who were coming off a 1-4 road trip. "The toughest game is the first game after a long road trip," Bobcats coach Steve Clifford said. "It comes down to will, mental toughness and how bad you want to win." The Wizards led 43-39 after a listless first half, during which both teams shot just under 43 per cent from the field. Henderson scored 11 of Charlottes first 13 points in the first six minutes of the game, but then proceeded to miss six of his last seven shots in the first half. He was the only player from either team to reach double figures in scoring in the opening half with 15. The Bobcats were particularly inept on offence in the opening half, missing half of their 12 free-throw attempts while failing to register any fast-break or second-chance points. Yet the game remained close, with the Bobcats pulling to within 47-45 on a 3-pointer by Chris Douglas-Roberts with 9:32 left in the third quarter, before the Wizards conjured up their 17-0 run. The Bobcats were down 19, 64-45, before they scored again on a pair of free throws by Anthony Tolliver. From there, the Bobcats furiously attempted to rally. But the closest they could come was to within 88-81 on a 3-point play by Tolliver with 2:14 remaining. Beal immediately answered with a jumper for the Wizards, who then went on to close the game with a 9-2 run. The Wizards held a 46-38 rebounding advantage and a 28-18 edge on points in the paint, led by Gortat. "He took the challenge and came out and played," Wall said of Gortat. "For some reason when we hit the road we find the way to play the best way we need to play and find a way to win these games." Notes: The Wizards have won five in a row against East teams on the road. ... Gortat had his 11th double-double of the season. ... Jefferson had his streak of double-figure games snapped at 22. He had scored a season-high 27 points on Saturday against Sacramento. Emmitt Smith Jersey . -- The St. Johns IceCaps weathered a wild first period with the help of goaltender Jussi Olkinuora, before finding offensive inroads in the second. Randy Gregory Jersey . All of the scoring came in the final 20:04. Lucic scored on a power play at 15:46 of the third period, when he tipped a shot over Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen for a 3-1 lead. http://www.footballcowboysstore.us/auth ... ys-jersey/

Note: The Calgary Flames announced Tuesday that Sean Monahan would not be made available to Canadas World Junior team.KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe has a concussion and linebacker Tamba Hali has a swollen knee, and both have been ruled out for Sundays game at San Diego. The Chiefs are expected to rest most of their starters anyway against the Chargers. Kansas City is already assured the No. 5 seed in the AFC playoffs. The bigger question is whether Bowe and Hali will be ready for the Chiefs wild-card playoff game the following weekend. Bowe sustained a concussion when he was hit in the neck area by LaRon Landry in last weeks 23-7 loss to Indianapolis; Hali hurt his knee in the same game. Theres a possibility the Chiefs could face the Colts again in the playoffs. "Im just glad that we were on top of it," Reid said of Bowes concussion. "Thats the main thing. I dont care about anything else but getting him right. I just want to make sure hes OK." When pressed about having Bowe ready in time for the playoffs, Reid responded: "Listen, Im hoping hes right. Lets make sure hes right." Bowe had had a disappointing first season since signing a $56 million, five-year contract in the off-season. He has just 57 catches for 693 yards and five touchdowns, each of those totals his fewest in any season in which hes made more than 12 starts. Bowe also became a distraction the week before a loss to Denver when he was pulled over for speeding and arrested on suspicion of marijuana possession. Hes due in court next month. Reid said that Bowe practiced Tuesday, took Wednesday off and didnt feel right on Thursday. Trainer Rick Burkholder and the teams doctors examined him. Bowe then began going through the proscribed concussion protocol. "Well see how he does," Reid said, "but for this game hes out." Reid said that Halii is "making progress" after he came out of the Colts game with swelling in his knee, but with little to play for against San Diego, the prudent decision was to rest him and make sure hes available for the playoffs. Jeff Heath Jersey. . Hali missed the second half against the Chargers last month with a sprained ankle. "Tamba is listed as out for this game. Hes got a swollen knee," Reid said Friday. "He is making progress, so thats a good thing. Everybody else practiced today." That includes linebacker Justin Houston and left tackle Branden Albert. Even though the Chiefs are expected to rest most of their starters against the Chargers, Houston and Albert have missed several games with injuries and could benefit from shaking off some rust before the playoffs. Both are listed as probable for San Diego. Houston has been out with a dislocated right elbow and Albert a hyperextended left knee. "Im recovered, feeling good and ready to help this team win," Albert said. "Im preparing like Im going to play. Thats the goal, to help this team win, next week, this week, whatever." Defensive co-ordinator Bob Sutton said Thursday that Houston, who had 11 sacks in 11 games before getting hurt, appears to be "pretty confident" that hes ready to go. "Thats a big part of any injury, the player once hes cleared, he has to feel good, too," Sutton said. "Hes practiced really hard. I think obviously hes really close." When asked whether it makes sense for Houston to get some snaps before the start of the playoffs, Sutton said: "I think it would be great if he could, but I wouldnt lose a lot of sleep if he didnt. Hes a veteran player whos played a lot of snaps, so its not a huge thing."
