April 18 Ondrej Kase Jersey , 2015 was a big day for the Edmonton Oilers organization. That鈥檚 when the club lucked out at the annual draft lottery, securing the first overall pick and with it the right to draft generational talent Connor McDavid.
The Oilers were a terrible team at the time of the draft lottery, but everything changed that day. At the time Craig MacTavish was GM of the Oilers, but he was clearly in way over his head, so the Oilers went out and hired (who they thought) was a legit general manager in Peter Chiarelli.
They were the same old Oilers in 2015-16鈥擬cDavid鈥檚 rookie year in which he missed nearly half the season due to a broken clavicle鈥攆inishing 29th in the league. But Michael Del Zotto Jersey , 2016-17 offered hope, as they made it to the postseason for the first time in a decade and advanced to the second round.
While fans thought they鈥檇 turned the corner and had years and years of competitive hockey with McDavid at the helm ahead of them, early returns on 2017-18 show that may have been a bit premature. A series of moves made by GM Chiarelli appear to have handcuffed this club, and today鈥檚 list takes a close look at 15 moves Chiarelli鈥檚 made since becoming GM in Edmonton.
Since we like to be fair here at TheSportster, we wanted to point out both bad moves and good moves. And since Chiarelli has erred far more than succeeded Seth Jones Jersey , we had to go with 10 bad moves and five good ones. Here they are, in order of least bad/least good to worst/best. Enjoy.
The Patriots have brought back Jason King, re-signing the offensive lineman Friday, Mike Reiss of ESPN reports. New England waived rookie receiver Chris Lacy.
King has had multiple stints with the Patriots. The team most recently cut him May 10 after he had signed a futures contract with New England on February 6.
King, 24 Jason Spezza Jersey , originally entered the NFL as a rookie free agent on May 5, 2017, signing with the Patriots. King went through training camp with the team, but the Patriots released him before the start of the regular season.
King joined New England’s practice squad on September 20, but it released him October 9. The Ravens signed him to their practice squad on October 31 Youth Corey Crawford Jersey , and he spent two weeks there.
The Patriots re-signed him to their active roster on November 28, released him December 2 and re-signed him to the practice squad December 5.

Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham‘s continued attendance at Giants workouts was #asexpected Womens Pavel Buchnevich Jersey , and allows the team to think about the future of what could be a prolific offensive tandem.
Via Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News, Beckham was back on hand for Giants OTAs today, giving him a chance to continue to work with rookie running back Saquon Barkley, as well as a chance for coach Pat Shurmur to continue building their relationship.
Shurmur suggested that Beckham’s still not medically cleared to fully participate, and he still doesn’t have that contract extension which was reported to be an issue. But that hasn’t kept the good vibes from flowing.
“Odell’s been in and out, so he’s been around. It’s very encouraging P.K Subban Jersey ,” Shurmur said. “I’ve developed a really nice relationship with him. We’re very open and honest about everything Giants and everything Odell. I’m just looking forward to him being there. There’s a lot to be learned. He’s not quite finished with his rehab, but there’s still a lot to be learned by just watching what’s going on.”
Shurmur also said he expected “the whole team” to be on hand, which includes the return of tackle Ereck Flowers, who skipped the earlier voluntary work after the team acquired left tackle Nate Solder.
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) The Wild and Matt Dumba have agreed on a five-year, $30 million deal to keep the 23-year-old defenseman in Minnesota after a breakout year.
General manager Paul Fenton announced the deal Saturday with the restricted free agent.
Dumba had 14 goals and 36 assists to go with a plus-15 rating in 82 games last season Aaron Ekblad Jersey , when he had career highs in games played, goals, assists, points, game-winning goals (4), power-play assists (10) Luke Glendening Jersey , time on ice (23:48), shots on goal (176), hits (136) and blocked shots (112). The 6-foot, 184-pound Dumba is from Regina, Saskatchewan, and was the No. 7 overall pick by Minnesota in 2012.
Dumba will be paid $5.2 million in 2018-19 Tyler Toffoli Jersey , then $7.4 million, $4.8 million, $7.4 million and $5.2 million over the contract, which has an annual salary cap hit of $6 million.

The New York Jets have signed veteran defensive lineman Courtney Upshaw after a three-day tryout during minicamp.
Upshaw spent the last two seasons with Atlanta after being a second-round draft pick by Baltimore out of Alabama in 2012. He has seven career sacks Josh Morrissey Jersey , five forced fumbles, five fumble recoveries and 215 tackles in six NFL seasons.
Upshaw originally entered the league as a linebacker and played there for the Ravens while helping them win the Super Bowl in 2013. He signed with Atlanta in 2016, moved to defensive line and played in the Super Bowl with the Falcons that season.
To make room on the roster Thursday, the Jets waived defensive lineman Chris Jones, who was signed on June 5. He has also spent time with Tampa Bay, New England, Miami and San Francisco during his five-year career.
Several prominent players across the NFL have skipped mandatory minicamps this week Mike Condon Jersey , subjecting themselves to team fines out of concern for their contract status in a league where so little is guaranteed.
Everyone is accounted for in Minnesota, where good vibes from the top of the organization to the bottom of the roster can only help the Vikings in their attempt to better their NFC championship game appearance from last season.
"All these guys, they like to be around each other. So I think that's part of it," coach Mike Zimmer said. "We've got a lot of really good guys on this football team who care about not just them, but they care about each other. It's kind of just the way we do things."
Savvy salary cap management steered by executive vice president of football operations Rob Brzezinski has allowed the Vikings to put the majority of their stars in mutually beneficial multi-year deals, but outside linebacker Anthony Barr, wide receiver Stefon Diggs and defensive end Danielle Hunter have all entered 2018 on expiring contracts that must be addressed soon unless the Vikings are willing to let them become free agents and potentially price the club out on the open market.
Still Drew Stafford Jersey , all three of them have been practicing with the team this week, clearly confident enough in their future earnings to opt for full participation over mild protest. Barr, for his part, missed one week of organized team activities last month, an absence he said was to secure an insurance policy in case of a severe injury that would derail the value of his next deal. He said recently his hope was to have a new contract in place by the beginning of on-field workouts in May, but that's the closest anyone has come to even hinting about dissatisfaction.
Barr is among the 2014 first-round draft picks who've reached their first career crossroad, playing the fifth option year that the majority of teams have exercised for cost control. Then there are the post-first round 2015 picks such as Hunter and Diggs who've entered the fourth season of their rookie deals.
Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell Authentic Oscar Fantenberg Jersey , Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald, Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson, Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones, Tennessee Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan and Oakland Raiders defensive end Khalil Mack have created headlines around the league for staying home this week from minicamp.
"My job is to come in to work, just like you come in to work the same way," Hunter said. "My job is to come in and get on this field and play football."
Clearly, he's been listening to the head coach Cory Schneider Jersey , as have many of his teammates.
"That's one thing Zim has taught us since he's been here: No one player is more important than the team," Hunter said. "So I guess that kind of grew into the program. The team is way bigger than one person. In order to help the team, you've got to do your job. And we want to be great. We want to be where we need to be. Last year, it wasn't close to that, so we've got to work for that again."
The New York Football Giants Ryan Dzingel Jersey , a bedrock NFL franchise, have negotiated thousands of player contracts over the decades. Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who received a slotted rookie deal in 2014, has negotiated as a practical matter none. And the Giants surely have been banking on that imbalance in lowballing Beckham.
That’s why Beckham needs to hold out of training camp. It’s his only real leverage and, given his other options to force the Giants to pay Beckham what he deserves, it’s his only real choice.
If he shows up as a show of good faith and talks go nowhere, he can’t leave. Well, he can leave. But the Giants would hold all the cards.
A player who reports and then departs opens the door for the so-called “five-day letter,” which advises the player that if he doesn’t return within (wait for it) five days, the team can then put him on the reserve/left squad list, shutting down his season and tolling his contract for a full year.
In Beckham’s case, this would mean he’ll still be working under the fifth-year option — and he’ll still be a full season from free agency or the franchise tag — in 2019.
Beckham also could try to “hold in,” which in his case would entail showing up but refusing to practice until he has a contract. That position quickly would amount to conduct detrimental to the team Gabriel Landeskog Jersey Kids , exposing him to fines and suspensions and other problems somewhat akin to what Terrell Owens experienced in Philadelphia 13 years ago.
Based on how Beckham handled the offseason program (showing up but not really doing anything), and given his statement from a week ago that he plans to report for camp, Beckham probably has been contemplating a report-but-refuse-to-participate-in-team-drills approach. The news that a holdout remains on the table likely indicates that his representatives hope to persuade Beckham that it’s much better to not show up than to show up and not work.
So will Beckham show up? Again, he shouldn’t. And the team needs to know now that he won’t, which would make the start of training camp a very real deadline in a deadline-driven industry.
The core question remains whether Beckham is wired to withstand a holdout. Last year, when he stayed away from offseason workouts due to his contract status (but never admitted that was the reason for it), Beckham seemed to be ultra-sensitive about any and all criticism regarding not-really-a-holdout holdout.
Indeed, Beckham blocked the PFT Twitter account simply because I repeatedly said that he should explain why he’s not participating in offseason workouts, so that the fans will understand why he’s not there.
We nevertheless support his quest to be paid what he deserves. The owners have made, and will continue to make (without any actual physical or business risk), billions. The NFL’s best and most popular players individually have one or two chances to make the millions they deserve.
And they have limited tools for forcing a recalcitrant team to pay up. For Beckham, the best (only) option is to not show up for training camp. While many who simply don’t get it would give him a hard time for doing it, those who understand the realities of the situation will — and should — support him.
A pair of rookies helped the Giants get their weekend in Arizona off to a winning start.
Andrew Suarez pitched six strong innings Casey Cizikas Jersey , Austin Slater had a pair of RBI doubles and San Francisco beat the Diamondbacks 2-1 on Friday night.
Suarez (3-4), a 25-year-old left-hander, gave up a run, scattering seven hits in his first win in five starts. The left-hander struck out five and walked two.
Five of the singles Suarez allowed were infield hits, including one that died halfway down the third-base line, an inch or two off the chalk.
”It was just weird,” Suarez said of the infield hit spree. ”I’ve never seen it like that. But it worked out thankfully. It could have been way worse and they’d have scored five or six runs.”
Suarez is among the young pitchers who are filling in well for the Giants while the veteran starters work their way back to health.
”We have difficult decisions the way these kids are throwing,” San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy said. ”As I said so many times, they’re doing what you’d hope they would do, is make the decision tough.”
Slater, recalled from Triple-A Sacramento four times this season – most recently last Saturday – doubled in a run off Patrick Corbin in the second and knocked in the go-ahead score off Andrew Chafin (1-3) in the seventh. Slater, who entered the game 4 for 15 in the majors this season, also singled.
He’s become accustomed to the back-and-forth trips to Sacramento.
”The first couple of times up and down it’s easy to lose focus Tyler Johnson Jersey ,” Slater said, ”but for me, I see it as a way to try to prove a point, that I was here to stay.”
One of these trips, after a few more of these nights, he may be right.
Will Smith pitched a perfect ninth for his first save since April 13, 2014. San Francisco relievers retired the last 12 batters they faced.
Chafin, relieving Corbin in a 1-1 tie, walked Brandon Crawford, who scored from first when Slater doubled to the right-center gap.
Corbin limited San Francisco to a run on four hits, striking out five and walking one in six innings, but left with his second straight no decision. In his previous outing, Corbin blanked Pittsburgh on three hits for seven innings and matched his career strikeout best with 12. Corbin last won on June 5 at San Francisco.
”Patrick was great today Eric Staal Jersey ,” Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said. ”He did everything we asked him to do. Would have sent him back out there in the seventh inning to get couple of hitters but we decided to pinch-hit for him. Unfortunately, one of the hazards of the National League game, but he did a great job and gave us a chance to win the game.”
The NL West-leading Diamondbacks opened a 10-game homestand after an 8-2 trip.
The Giants took a 1-0 lead in the second. Buster Posey led off with a single and took second when Chris Owings bobbled the ball in center. Slater brought Posey home with a one-out double.
The Diamondbacks finally got to Suarez tied it in the sixth. Ketel Marte led off with a double to the fence in right-center. Owings was called out on a groundout to third on a close play. Arizona challenged and the call was overturned after a video review, leaving runners at first and third and no outs. Jake Lamb’s sacrifice fly to left brought home Marte and made it 1-all.
Giants: RHP Johnny Cueto (right elbow strain) made his second rehab start Friday night for Triple-A Sacramento.
Diamondbacks: CF A.J. Pollock (fractured left thumb) made his first rehab start, with Triple-A Reno.
Yoshihisa Hirano set a Diamondbacks record with his 25th consecutive appearance without allowing a run, getting the final two outs of the seventh inning. The Japanese right-hander broke the previous record of 24 shared by Brandon Lyon (2008) and J.J. Putz (2012).
It’s tied with Shigetoshi Hasegawa of Seattle (2003) for second-longest streak in the majors by a Japanese-born pitcher. Koji Uehara of Boston had 27 straight scoreless appearances in 2011.
Giants RHP Derek Rodriguez (2-1, 3.82 ERA) makes his sixth major league start. San Francisco has won four of his previous five. Arizona RHP Shelby Miller (0-1, 12.27) makes his second start since returning from Tommy John surgery in the second game of the three-game weekend series.

Tom Brady calls it ”ridiculous” to suggest the suspension of Patriots receiver Julian Edelman is tied to the quarterback’s personal health coach.
The questions about Alex Guerrero on Saturday prompted Brady to abruptly end his first media availability of training camp.
”I have no comments Chris Kreider Jersey , just ridiculous. I’m out,” Brady said before walking away.
Edelman brushed aside a similar question in his first comments since receiving his four-game ban for a drug-policy violation.
”What’s in the past is in the past. I love Alex and ultimately I’m worried about just going out here and playing football,” Edelman said. ”I’m not here to talk about or make a headline or something.”
Edelman, tight end Rob Gronkowski and former Patriots receiver Danny Amendola are among several Patriots who have also worked or consulted with Guerrero.
Edelman will begin serving his suspension at the start of the regular season. He can practice with the team and play in preseason games.
Brady provided another short response when asked if there was tension between him and coach Bill Belichick this summer.
”I have no thoughts,” Brady said.
Brady has relied on a fitness and nutrition program developed by Guerrero since 2004. The pair also partnered in opening Brady’s TB12 Sports Therapy Center, which is adjacent to the Patriots’ Gillette Stadium facility.
In January Authentic Erik Karlsson Jersey Kids , Patriots CEO Robert Kraft, Belichick and Brady released a statement calling an ESPN report ”flat-out inaccurate” that said there had been disputes between team officials and Guerrero regarding player-medical affairs.
Brady will turn 41 next week and has credited Guerrero’s program with helping to extend his NFL career, which is entering its 19th season. As part of the strict regimen devised by Guerrero, Brady eats a mostly plant-based diet during the season.
Despite skipping the voluntary portion of spring workouts, Brady said his focus and commitment to football remain high.
”Football is very, very important to me. It always has been Victor Hedman Jersey , and I love being out here with my teammates. So, it’s great,” Brady said. ”As you get older you have different responsibilities, and I think that’s just part of life. Everyone’s got to deal with those responsibilities differently and what works for them.
”Football is a huge part of my life. I love being here with my teammates and playing, and hopefully we can have a great season.”
Jurrell Casey is done moving around.
In Mike Vrabel‘s defense, the three-time Pro Bowler has found a home at the 3-technique.
“I’ve got to get back to double-digit [sacks] Tyler Bozak Jersey ,” Casey said, via Paul Kuharsky of paulkuharsky.com. “I’m an all-time 3-technique from here on out, so I’ve just got to get back to it. Last year I was everywhere. I played 3-technique, 5-technique, played 6, played 4. This year I can play my ground Joel Eriksson Ek Jersey , play what I am going to do.”
Casey has 39 sacks in the seven seasons since the Titans drafted him in the third round. That includes 10.5 sacks in 2013.
Last season, Casey made six sacks, but he still made the Pro Bowl.
He quietly has become one of the best defensive tackles in the game, and he should benefit from not moving around this season.
As free agency kicked off the start of a new football season Jake DeBrusk Jersey , the NFL sent a clear message to anyone paying attention:
Colin Kaepernick, you’re still not wanted.
Probably not ever.
Oh, and while we’re at it, it’s pretty clear the owners have every intention of clamping down on any other players who tries to carry on Kaepernick’s legacy.
Rattled by another big dip in the television ratings and an increasing number of empty seats, the league seems determined to banish peaceful protest from the playing field.
While it’s quite a stretch to say those trends are intimately related – injuries, bad games and poor showings by several of the league’s most popular teams were surely bigger factors in the waning popularity – the guys sitting on what remains an enormous cash cow aren’t taking any chances.
Since Kaepernick is the one who got this whole thing started by having the audacity to silently kneel during the national anthem to protest racial injustice – the nerve of that guy! – his career could very well be over.
Never mind that he’s undoubtedly more talented than many of the quarterbacks who still have paying jobs.
Just look at those who have already agreed to new deals heading into the 2018 season.
– Kirk Cousins , who has a losing career record as a starter and has yet to win a playoff game.
– Case Keenum , coming off a marvelous season with the Minnesota Vikings but definitely a candidate for one-year wonder.
– AJ McCarron , who has just three starts in four years.
– Mike Glennon , saddled with an awful career record of 6-16.
– Tom Savage , who went 1-6 as the Texans‘ starter last season.
– Chase Daniel, the epitome of a journeyman.
– Josh McCown , who is 38 years old and Keith Yandle Jersey , despite the lack of any apparent success over his long career, keeps landing on his feet.
While all those guys keep cashing checks, Kaepernick was working out privately on a field in Houston , quietly going through the grind with only the help of his personal trainers, apparently still hopeful of restarting his career.
His optimism is likely misplaced.
While there’s always a chance of some owner breaking ranks to sign Kaepernick, the possibility grows less likely with each passing day. If anything, the owners are intent on nipping social consciousness in the bud.
Stephen Ross of the Miami Dolphins probably spoke out loud what most owners are saying behind closed doors when he was quoted as saying his players would be required to stand for the national anthem this season.
Ross quickly backtracked, saying his comments were ”misconstrued,” but a statement explaining his position left no doubt that he’s had enough of taking a knee.
”I’m passionate about the cause of social justice, and I feel that kneeling is an ineffective tactic that alienates more people than it enlists,” he said.
There was also a report from the Houston Chronicle that Texans owner Robert McNair doesn’t want to acquire players who have engaged in protests or might be likely to going forward. While the team quickly denied the report, McNair’s stance on such issues is apparent to everyone. At an owners meeting last year, he grumbled that ”we can’t have the inmates running the prison” – a remark that prompted most of his players to join arms and kneel before their next game .
Meanwhile Scottie Upshall Jersey , the Seattle Seahawks cut ties with two of their most outspoken players, Michael Bennett and Richard Sherman . While a point could be made that these moves were strictly designed to clear room under the salary cap and rebuild an aging defense, one couldn’t help but wonder if their support of Kaepernick’s protest contributed to the moves.
After clearly being blackballed last season, Kaepernick filed a grievance alleging the owners colluded to keep him out of the league . But it would probably take a mass walkout by all the fellow players to get him back on the field, and that’s not happening.
There’s too much money at stake to risk it all for a single player, no matter how unjustly he’s been treated. Even if all the players could come together as one, chances are their protest would collapse as soon as they miss a few paychecks, just as it did during the infamous 1987 strike when a plethora of big-name players crossed the picket line.
So, as we get started on a new NFL season, Kaepernick can expect to keep working out in solitude, at least until he decides on another line of work.
A bunch of less-qualified quarterbacks will continue to hold jobs.
The only message we can send:
Shame on you, NFL.
Paul Newberry is a sports columnist for The Associated Press. Write to him at pnewberry(at)ap.org or at The ovation moved Aaron Rodgers to tears.
The Green Bay Packers fans showed their appreciation with the two-time NFL MVP about to take his first snaps at Lambeau Field in almost a year. Once he got behind center, Rodgers needed just one drive to look right at home back in Titletown.
Rodgers connected with tight end Jimmy Graham for an 8-yard score http://www.officialavalanche.com/authentic-adidas-j.t.-compher-jersey , and Tramon Williams had a 25-yard interception return for a touchdown on the first play from scrimmage of the Packers' 51-34 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night.
"The biggest thing, the goal tonight with Aaron in that first drive was to get the ball in the end zone," coach Mike McCarthy said. "And I thought we did a nice job."
The response from fans seemed just as meaningful to Rodgers.
He was 2 of 4 for 35 yards in his first game at Lambeau since Sept. 28. He broke his collarbone two weeks later at Minnesota, an injury that doomed the Packers in a 7-9 season.
"To be back at Lambeau was a thrill and the ovation touched me," Rodgers said. "I have to kind of wipe away some tears in my eyes."
Starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger watched from the sideline in shorts and a T-shirt. He and second-stringer Landry Jones had already been ruled out for the game when Roethlisberger left a training camp practice on Tuesday with a possible concussion.
Big Ben looked just fine while chatting with Rodgers as they walked to their respective locker rooms at halftime. After the game, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Roethlisberger was out of the concussion protocol.
Sounds like he'll be back at practice Saturday.
"He's out of the protocol. He's a full participant," Tomlin said.
The Steelers got off to rough start after Mason Rudolph threw the interception returned by Williams.
But five minutes later, Rudolph found JuJu Smith-Schuster for a 4-yard touchdown pass. Rudolph, who is competing with Joshua Dobbs for a backup job, was just 5 of 12 for 47 yards in playing the first half.
Dobbs didn't look much better after throwing a 22-yard interception returned for a touchdown by rookie cornerback Josh Jackson in the third quarter.
"We'd just like to have those plays back, but the deal is you don't get those plays back," Tomlin said. "So, hopefully Justin Abdelkader Jersey , there's a learning process there in it for all of us."
Dobbs finished strong and connected with rookie receiver James Washington for two second-half touchdowns . He was 12 of 17 for 192 yards.
GOING TO GRAHAM
Green Bay is always a threat in the NFC as long as Rodgers is healthy. This year, he has an intriguing option in the red zone in the 6-foot-7 Graham, who signed as a free agent in the offseason.
Rodgers drew the Steelers offside on third-and-10 from the 13 for a 5-yard penalty.
On the next play, he stood tall in the face of a rush before throwing a high pass into the middle of the end zone for Graham. He spiked the ball before heading into the stands for his first Lambeau Leap.
Besides Roethlisberger, the Steelers didn't have two other stars. Receiver Antonio Brown sat out, while running back Le'Veon Bell still hasn't signed his franchise tender.
But Smith-Schuster is picking up where he left off following a promising rookie year after scoring his second preseason TD. The score wrapped up a wild opening five minutes in which the Packers raced out to a 14-point lead before the Steelers scored two straight touchdowns.
Green Bay's backups pulled away from there.
Second-string quarterback Brett Hundley was 6 of 9 for 77 yards. He also scored on a 10-yard run . Third-stringer DeShone Kizer connected with receiver Jake Kumerow for an 82-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter.
James Conner had a 26-yard touchdown run for the Steelers in the first quarter while the Packers still had many starters on the field. Washington scored on a 19-yard pass from Dobbs after turning and extending his arms past a defender to retrieve the ball.
"Every time he gets a rep, my eyes are on him. I'm just studying him each and every day, picking his brain, just trying to become a better receiver." 鈥?Washington on watching Brown in practice.
Steelers: Backup C Patrick Morris left in the third quarter with an undisclosed injury.
Packers: RG Justin McCray (calf) and RB Jamaal Williams (ankle), both starters, left in the second quarter. ... Kumerow left in the third quarter with a shoulder injury.
There were no apparent displays of protest by players on either team during the national anthem.
Steelers: Host the Tennessee Titans on Aug. 25.
Packers: Visit the Oakland Raiders on Aug. 24.

Kevin Hart laughed as he tried to floss dance with a kid as they were both egged on by rapper Meek Mill. Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie awkwardly waved his arms around the way any 60-something-year-old man would attempting to look hip next to star entertainers.
This postseason potpourri of comic http://www.officialoilers.com/authentic-adidas-connor-mcdavid-jersey , ex-con and champion unfolded on the sideline of another 76ers’ romp.
Mill, the Philadelphia-born rapper released from prison only hours earlier, snagged the Game 5 headlines.
Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid and the rest of the Sixers stole the show.
Embiid and Simmons shined again in front of Mill, and the dominant duo ushered the nightmares-into-dreams Process of the Philadelphia 76ers into the second round with a 104-91 win over the Miami Heat on Tuesday night.
The 76ers, winners of 10 games just two seasons ago, are in the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs for the first time since 2012. The Sixers won the series 4-1 and turned the Wells Fargo Center into the wildest house party in the city.
”I’ve been waiting for this moment,” Embiid said.
Embiid had 19 points and 12 rebounds, Simmons had 14 points and 10 boards, and the entire team was energized by Mill’s surprise appearance. Mill made a dramatic return hours after Pennsylvania’s highest court ordered him freed while he appeals decade-old gun and drug convictions.
They await the winner of Milwaukee-Boston. The Celtics lead the series 3-2.
The Sixers are the latest team to sweep up the city in a sports euphoria that hasn’t died down since the Eagles beat the New England Patriots to win the Super Bowl.
Look around the arena http://www.officialbluejackets.com/authentic-adidas-david-savard-jersey , and the champs were all around.
Lurie was in the house and so were a handful of Eagles. The national champion Villanova Wildcats were feted during the game. The Wildcats posed with Mill in the locker room and then stopped for selfies on the way to the court for a brief celebration. The city has already thrown two championship parades this year – the 76ers have played like a team that could add one more.
”We all got a taste of it with the Eagles, we all got a taste of it with Villanova’s tremendous win,” coach Brett Brown said. ”You feel it with the city from afar.”
He added: ”Everybody is excited to be a part of, what I think, is playing out to be a cool story.”
Embiid, who came to personify the Process, had his second consecutive double-double and tallied 56 points, 31 rebounds and nine blocks in just three playoff games. Embiid again played in a black mask to guard a face injury, and he’ll have plenty of time to rest and recover with the other Eastern Conference playoff series expected to stretch into the weekend.
”We feel like we’re unstoppable and we can get whatever we want to,” Embiid said. ”That’s the goal and we’re going to do what it takes to get there.”
Here’s what else to know about the 76ers in the postseason.
This was no run-of-the-mill Game 5 victory for the Sixers. Mill was there just hours after being released from prison.
He was brought by helicopter to Philadelphia Youth Jordan Weal Jersey , where he rang the ceremonial bell to start the game. Mill sat courtside next to Hart and Sixers co-owner Michael Rubin.
Rubin had organized prison trips with Embiid, Simmons and Markelle Fultz to support Mill, and the rapper’s songs played in the locker room and during warmups.
”When he was in jail, I went to visit him. He wasn’t feeling good. You could tell,” Embiid said. ”For him to come to this type of game … I was just happy.”
The 76ers caused a few eyes to roll around the league when they signed free-agent guard JJ Redick to a $23 million, one-year deal in the offseason. Redick was coming off a solid four-year run with the Clippers, but even by NBA standards, the Sixers appeared to overpay for the 3-point ace. Redick has been worth every dollar, and he delivered again in Game 5. He made 5 of 10 3 pointers, all 10 free throws and scored a game-high 27 points.
It was the second time this postseason that Redick scored at least 27 points and the third time in his playoff career. He had consecutive 20-point games in the postseason for the first time in his career.
”We’ve changed our goals like four times Kyle Turris Jersey ,” Redick said. ”First, it was make the playoffs, then win 50 games, then getting home court, then getting the No. 3 seed.”
All four goals have been reached.
ROOKIE ROCKS IT
Simmons had 14 points and 10 rebounds for his fourth double-double of the series. He is the first rookie to post at least four double-doubles in his first five postseason games since San Antonio’s Tim Duncan in 1997-98.
Simmons was a force against the Heat. He had 91 points, 53 rebounds and 45 assists in the series and showed why he’s the favorite to win the NBA rookie of the year.
”This is what I’m going to expect now,” Simmons said.
Atlanta’s Matt Ryan threw 12 interceptions last season, which is not an inordinately high number for a quarterback who starts all 16 games. But it was a lot more interceptions than he should have thrown.
According to data from FootballOutsiders.com, Ryan threw five interceptions that should have been caught by his own teammates, an incredibly high number of passes that were thrown into his own receivers’ hands Tyler Seguin Jersey , only to be tipped into the hands of a defensive player who made the interception.
How rare is that? Football Outsiders has been tracking tipped interceptions for years, and no quarterback has had that many tipped interceptions in a season since 2010. Last year Tom Brady, Philip Rivers, Eli Manning and Ben Roethlisberger all threw more passes than Ryan and had zero passes tipped by their own receivers and intercepted.
Most quarterbacks have more potential interceptions dropped by the defense than passes intercepted after their own receiver dropped the ball. Ryan, who had just two potential interceptions dropped by the defense, was a rare quarterback whose bad luck resulted in him having more interceptions than passes thrown into the hands of the opposing team.
Authentic New York Giants Jerseys
Francisco Lindor had an exceptional Monday after a very good Sunday.
Lindor homered twice Radek Faksa Jersey , including a grand slam, and finished with a career-high seven RBIs as the Cleveland Indians beat the Kansas City Royals 9-3 on Monday night.
On Sunday, he had two doubles and a solo homer in Oakland.
Lindor homered in the fourth after Yan Gomes singled and Jakob Junis hit Tyler Naquin and Rajai Davis with pitches. He added a three-run homer in the sixth to finish Junis’ evening.
”One was a changeup and the other one was a slider,” said Lindor, who has 23 home runs. ”My approach is hit the ball and if it goes out it goes out. It was a good pitch to hit (on the grand slam). I was just trying to get one guy in. I’m not a power hitter. Just get a good pitch to hit and drive it.”
Lindor has 17 home runs and 54 RBIs in 54 games against the Royals.
”Just a routine day for him, today and yesterday,” Indians starter Corey Kluber said. ”He continues to get better, which is kind of scary.”
Kluber (12-4), who failed to make it out of the second inning in his previous start at St. Louis, gave up two runs in the first, but little after that. He allowed three runs and seven hits, walked none and struck out five over six innings.
Davis had three hits and scored three runs.
”I got myself into trouble with a couple of hit batters and good teams are going to take advantage of that,” Junis said.
Junis (5-10) has lost his last seven starts and is tied with teammate Jason Hammel for most losses in the American League. He has yielded a major league-high 24 home runs, including 12 in his last five starts over 27 innings.
”You worry about his confidence more than anything else,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. ”Again http://www.officialcanucks.com/authentic-adidas-henrik-sedin-jersey , it’s an easy fix. When you’re off the side of the slider, it’s gonna be a cement mixer. He started off good, just didn’t end that good.”
Whit Merrifield homered on Kluber’s third pitch for his fourth career leadoff home run. Salvador Perez singled home Mike Moustakas, who had doubled, in an 11-pitch at-bat for the other Kansas City run in the first.
Jorge Bonifacio logged his first RBI of the season in the Kansas City sixth after being suspended the first 80 games for taking a performance enhancing drug.
The Royals have lost 23 of their last 28 games. They are tied with the Baltimore Orioles for the most losses in the majors with 54. They scored four runs or fewer for the 23rd time in the last 24 games.
ROYALS SIGN FIRST-ROUND PICK
The Royals signed right-hander Jackson Kowar, a first-round compensation selection and the 33rd overall pick, to a $2.118.700 signing bonus. He went 10-5 with a 3.04 ERA as a Florida junior.
LeBron James has left the Cleveland Cavaliers to join the Los Angeles Lakers. ”If someone gave me $154 million I’d probably go somewhere too,” Indians manager Terry Francona said. ”He did what he said he was going to do. He got them a championship. When you’re a free agent, you’ve earned that right. I will miss him, because I loved going to games when he played. It’s hard to begrudge somebody. He earned it.”
Indians: RF Lonnie Chisenhall was a late scratch with a strained left calf. Francona said Chisenhall would definitely go on the disabled list. … RHP Danny Salazar underwent season-ending shoulder surgery in Dallas. ”It just kind of came to a point,” Francona said. ”That’s the last option. You try everything else before you go into somebody’s shoulder. The good side is there was no structural (damage). The rotator cuff was good. They cleaned him out. It’s a shame we lost him for the whole year.”
Indians: RHP Shane Bieber is 3-0 with a 2.22 ERA in his first four big league starts.
Royals: LHP Danny Duffy is winless in six home starts this season, going 0-3 with a 6.32 ERA.
Already in the midst of a monster game, Matt Carpenter almost left too early.
Carpenter stuck around for one more swing, and connected for a three-run homer Friday that capped off a historic performance for the St. Louis Cardinals in an 18-5 romp over the Chicago Cubs.
Carpenter hit three home runs and two doubles, going 5 for 5 with seven RBIs. He tied the major league record for extra-base hits in a game Zach Hyman Jersey , and became the first player to do it in just six innings.
”I’m having a hard time to come up with words to describe a day like this,” Carpenter said.
Carpenter led off the game at Wrigley Field with a home run against Jon Lester. With the Cardinals comfortably ahead, interim manager Mike Shildt contemplated resting him.
”I almost didn’t take the last at-bat. He came up to me, they had the lefty on mound and he said, `Hey, what do you think?”’ Carpenter said.
”I was actually OK with Jose (Martinez) coming in, we had a big lead, we have a lot of games piling up in the next couple of days. I was honestly OK with it,” he said. ”And then I looked at the situation knowing that if I was going to get up, there was going to be runners on base so I went back up to him and said, `Hey, I’ll take this last one, for sure,”` Carpenter said.
It turned into a huge day for Carpenter, who exited after that last homer.
”I can’t think outside of T-ball that I have ever done that Drew Doughty Jersey , certainly a first for me,” he said.
Carpenter became the 14th player with five extra-base hits in a game, and the first to do it for the Cardinals.
Trailing 15-1 after Carpenter’s third homer, the Cubs used three position players to pitch the rest of the way – infielder Tommy La Stella, backup catcher Victor Caratini and versatile Ian Happ. La Stella and Caratini gave up homers as the Cubs became the first team since the 1979 Milwaukee Brewers to use three position players on the mound in a game.
The NL Central-leading Cubs lost for just the fourth time in their last 17 games.
Carpenter joined Cubs star Kris Bryant as the only players in the majors to hit three home runs and two doubles in a game. Bryant homered in this game, too, as did teammate Willson Contreras.
Carpenter has homered in four straight games. During that stretch, he is 9 for 16 with six home runs, three doubles and 10 RBIs.
The leadoff homer by Carpenter was his team-record sixth of the season and 21st of his career, matching the club mark held by Hall of Famer Lou Brock.
”It’s super humbling to be mentioned in the same sentence as Lou. Anytime you’re in any kind of record with an organization like this, it is certainly humbling. It’s a privileged to put on this jersey and play for an organization that has such a cherished history and any time you can be a part of it’s pretty neat,” Carpenter said.
Carpenter hit a two-run homer in the second off Jon Lester (12-3). Carpenter doubled twice in the fourth and hit a three-run drive, his 23rd this year, off reliever Brian Duensing in the sixth.
Carpenter has faced Lester more than any other pitcher during his career, but was just 7 for 50 (.140) with 14 strikeouts and one home run against the lefty until breaking loose.
Lester (12-3) was tagged for a season-high eight runs on seven hits and five walks in three innings. It was his first loss since a 1-0 loss to Cleveland on May 23.
”Yeah Nick Jensen Jersey , unfortunately. I would have liked to minimize the damage a little bit more, I was unfortunately not able to. I don’t want to chalk it up like days like this happen. I think mechanically this has kind of been coming, I’ve been battling myself a little bit these last three starts,” he said.
The Cardinals tied a season high with 18 hits as they bounced back after dropping the first game of the five-game series. The teams play a day-night doubleheader on Saturday and in order to save his bullpen, Cubs manager Joe Maddon used other parts of his roster.
It was the first time two position players were used to pitch for the Cubs since at least 1907, according to Cubs historian Ed Hartig.
”Takes me back to the beer leagues, game goes on and on but both teams keep playing because they’re supposed to. I love their effort. I like the way we dealt with it,” Maddon said.
La Stella allowed one run in 1 1-3 innings, a homer by Greg Garcia. Caratini gave up a pinch-hit, two-run homer to Yairo Munoz in the eighth and Happ pitched a scoreless ninth.
Jack Flaherty (4-4) pitched five innings. He allowed one run and two hits, struck out nine and walked four.
Cardinals: For the second straight game, OF Harrison Bader didn’t start, but came off the bench in the sixth as a defensive replacement. He left Sunday’s 6-4 victory over Cincinnati with a hyperextended left knee. He was 2 for 2.
Cardinals: RHP Luke Weaver (0-1) will start the first game of Saturday’s doubleheader and RHP John Gant (3-3) goes in the nightcap. Gant has made two starts in the majors this season. He allowed 10 runs in eight innings.
Cubs: RHP Tyler Chatwood (3-5) will start the first game and LHP Mike Montgomery (3-3) pitches the second game. Chatwood is 0-3 against the Cardinals with a 6.41 ERA, three games as a starter and three games as a reliever.

Arizona Cardinals general manager Steve Keim is apologizing for what he calls "incredibly poor judgment and inexcusable actions" that resulted in a Fourth of July DUI arrest in a Phoenix suburb.
The Cardinals said Saturday the team was gathering information and would handle the matter "appropriately and in accordance with all league policies as well as within the legal system."
Chandler police say Keim was arrested early Wednesday morning after a traffic stop and was released from custody later in the day. They did not release further details.
In a statement, Keim said that he failed to meet NFL standards of behavior and that he accepts full responsibility for his actions.
Keim has been the Cardinals GM since 2013.
The Detroit Lions added depth in the backfield Roberto Luongo Jersey , signing LeGarrette Blount and re-signing Zach Zenner.
Detroit signed both players Friday to compete with Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick for carries this year.
Blount, an unrestricted free agent, ran for a team-high 766 yards and two touchdowns during the regular season last year in Philadelphia and scored three touchdowns during the Eagles’ Super Bowl-winning run. He previously played for the New England Patriots Jake DeBrusk Jersey , who used to employ Detroit general manager Bob Quin and coach Matt Patricia.
Blount, who has also played for Tampa Bay and Pittsburgh, has run for 5 Madison Bowey Jersey ,888 yards and 51 touchdowns in his career along with catching 54 passes for 387 yards and two scores.
Zenner, who was a restricted free agent this offseason, played in eight games last season and ran for 26 yards and a TD. Over his three-year career with the Lions Joel Armia Jersey Kids , Zenner has 119 carries for 420 yards and five touchdowns along with 20 receptions for 207 yards.
President Trump has railed against NFL players who took a knee during the playing of the national anthem as unpatriotic over the last two years while ignoring the stated reasons for the protests but that changed a bit on Friday.
Those reasons center on inequality in the treatment of minorities by law enforcement in the United States and the President said during a press gathering ahead of his trip to the G-7 meeting that players have “seen a lot of abuse, they’ve seen a lot of unfairness” during their lives. He also invited players to make known people they think have been treated unfairly and promised to look into those cases.
“I’m going to ask all of those people to recommend to me — because that’s what they’re protesting — people that they think were unfairly treated by the justice system. And I understand that. I’m going to ask them to recommend to me people that were unfairly treated and I’m gonna take a look at those applications and if I find and my committee finds that they’ve been unfairly treated than we’ll pardon them. Or at least let them out.”
There’s no way to pardon or let out people who are dead after run-ins with law enforcement, of course. Those deaths and the response to those deaths by law enforcement agencies and the justice system are a major part of what spurred the protests in the first place and were not addressed by the President on Friday.
