we aspire to get to," Brown said. Popovich didnt enjoy the experience. "Its no fun at all," he said. "If you win, you sort of feel bad. If you lose, you sort of feel happy for him. Its a weird feeling because youre supposed to want to win. When I coached against Larry (Brown), we both hated it every time." The Spurs didnt even need Tim Duncan, who was given a rest in the second of back-to-back games. The surprising Sixers are 4-4, a far better start than expected. Oddsmakers predicted they would win fewer than 17 games this season. "The biggest thing we take away is their unselfishness on both sides of the ball," Hawes said. "They sell out defensively and theyre excited about making that extra pass on offence. We run the same offence. You look at the way they did it and say: Thats how its supposed to be." Duncan, the three-time NBA Finals MVP, had 11 points and 10 rebounds in Sundays 120-89 rout of the Knicks at Madison Square Garden. This one was pretty much the same kind of laugher. The Sixers missed their first seven shots, and the Spurs closed out the first quarter on a 14-0 run to take a 31-13 lead. Seven players scored for San Antonio in the opening 12 minutes, and that was just the start. In a reversal, the Spurs missed their first seven shots in the second quarter, while the Sixers went on a 10-0 run to get within 31-23 following Turners 3-pointer. Boris Diaw ended that run with a layup and a hook shot. Green then hit a 3 to give the Spurs a double-digit lead for good, 46-34. They were up 19 at halftime and increased the lead to 29 by the middle of the third quarter. All the starters were on the bench by the start of the fourth quarter. "We were not playing that well the previous four games," Manu Ginobili said. "But in New York and here, we really took care of business from minute one. We made it look easy." The Spurs had more 3-pointers (13) than free throws attempted (11). Six players scored in double figures for San Antonio, including Kawhi Leonard (13) and Marco Belinelli (12). "Hes a young kid and sometimes he defers to everybody else on the court," Popovich said of Leonard. "We talked about it at halftime and he did his thing." Rookie Michael Carter-Williams had a season-low eight points on 2-for-11 shooting for Philadelphia. NOTES: Brown had a steady stream of visitors in his office before the game, including Parker. Brown had dinner with Popovich and the Spurs staff on Sunday night. ... The Sixers have trailed by double digits in six of their games this season. ... The Spurs have won the last five games vs. Philadelphia. ... The Spurs are 4-1 when scoring over 100 points. Hakeem Olajuwon Jersey . With Parker having a quiet game for once, Nicolas Batum and Boris Diaw provided the scoring as France won its first major basketball title by beating Lithuania 80-66 on Sunday. It was a victory that ended a decade of frustration for Parker and a talented French generation, which lost the final against Spain two years ago and took bronze in 2005. Robert Horry Jersey . They had already blown a double-digit lead, fans were hitting the exits, and a long seven-game road trip waited at the end. ... ts-Jersey/ ., and Rudi Swiegers of Kipling, Sask., took sixth spot on Saturday in pairs at the NHK Trophy ISU Grand Prix figure skating competition.(Sports Network) - Two of footballs most storied franchises will meet in primetime for the first time tonight as the winless Pittsburgh Steelers host the unbeaten Chicago Bears. Watch the action live on TSN and TSN Mobile TV, starting with Football Night in America at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt. Age and injuries seem to have caught up to the 2013 Steelers and Mike Tomlins current bunch is not in its accustomed spot as one of the heavyweights in the AFC. Since Chuck Nolls first winning season in 1972 the Steelers have had only seven losing seasons over a 40-year span with the low-water mark being 5-11 in 1988. Over that same time frame Pittsburgh has won 20 division championships, eight AFC crowns and is footballs only six-time Super Bowl champions. This is not an organization used to failure or looking up at the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC North standings. In fact, the Steelers have treated the Queen City like a second home over the years, winning 11 of their last 12 at Paul Brown Stadium before last Monday nights 20-10 setback to Marvin Lewis crew. Perhaps no team has had a more difficult start to the 2013 season than the Steelers, though, and now the team will try to avoid its first 0-3 start since 2000. Used to kicking off a new campaign in style, especially at home in Heinz Field, Pittsburgh lost far more than a game in Week 1 when Pro Bowl center Maurkice Pouncey, defensive leader Larry Foote and running back LaRod Stephens- Howling all went down with season-ending injuries during an ugly 16-9 setback against Tennessee. "Weve got a lot of work to do," Tomlin said at the time. "Nobody cares about our problems. Theyre glad weve got them. We need to understand that. We need to stick together and persevere." Things didnt figure to get much easier in Cincinnati as an old friend, James Harrison, and a strong Bengals front seven laid in wait after a bitter Week 1 hiccup at Chicago. Despite possessing footballs most impressive resume, and its longstanding dominance over the Bengals, you never got the feeling Pittsburgh even had a chance this time around, no doubt a bitter pill to swallow for some haughty western Pennsylvania fans used to nothing but good times. For once Cincinnati had the more talented team and perhaps more importantly, the healthier one. Rookie running back Giovani Bernard gave the Bengals offense a little juice out of the backfield and scored two touchdowns as Cincinnati shut down Pittsburgh. Bernard ran for an early score and caught a 27-yard touchdown pass from Andy Dalton in the third quarter which gave the Bengals a lead they never relinquished. The real difference, though, was the Bengals defense, which forced two turnovers and limited Pittsburgh to a mere 278 yards and 14 first downs in the clubs second home victory over its division rival in the past 12 years. Ben Roethlisberger, hurried throughout the game, threw for 251 yards with a touchdown and an interception on 20-of-37 passes for the Steelers, who dropped their first two games of the season for the first time since 2002. Its also the first time Pittsburgh has been two games under .500 since Tomlin took over in 2007. "They were the better team tonight," Tomlin said. "Well continue to work and move forward." Chicago, meanwhile, has been living on the edge, winning for the second straight week in comeback fashion when Martellus Bennetts touchdown catch with 10 seconds to play gave the Bears a 31-30 win over the Minnesota Vikings on a rainy day at Soldier Field. Jay Cutler was picked off twice and lost a fumble, but finished the game 28- for-39 with 290 yards and three touchdowns for the Bears, who opened the season with a three-point win over Cincinnati. Bennett finished with seven catches for 76 yards, Brandon Marshall had seven catches for 113 yards and a score, while Matt Forte had 90 yards on 19 carries and 71 yards on 11 catches for Chicago, which has won seven of the last eight games against Minnesota. Swingman Steve Francis Jersey. "I saw a lot of resiliency today out of this team," said Chicago head coach Marc Trestman. "We had a heck of an opponent today and they gave it their all. This was one of the tougher games Ive ever had to coach." Chicago leads its all-time series with the Steelers, which dates back to 1934, with a 20-7-1 mark. The rivalry has been much more evenly contested in the modern-day NFL, though, with the teams
