The Sydney Kings have won the first series of the NBL season, clinching an 86-78 eight-point comeback win over the Taipans in Cairns. Panthers Stitched Jerseys .The Snakes needed to win by 10 points on Friday night to clinch their first series win in almost two years and they were playing like it in the early skirmishes.A fired up Mark Worthington scored 11 points in the first quarter to put his team out to the required 10-point lead.And they kept pressing, Bamaga big Nate Jawai unleashed a contender for dunk of the season halfway through the third, latching onto a perfect Travis Trice alley-oop, sending the crowd skywards.But the Taipans again refused to give their fans an easy night, even though at one point they led the NBLs ladder leaders by 15 points.A run of sloppy fourth-quarter turnovers from Cairns put Sydney back into the contest late and Kings import Greg Whittington finally stole back the lead with a two-handed jam with three minutes remaining.From there, the Kings showed their class as American centre Josh Powell hit a tough fadeaway jumper and Brad Newley began to rack up rebounds almost at will.Five Kings players finished with scores in the double digits: Whittington with 14, Lisch had 18, Newley 20, Maric 10 while Powell contributed 17.Cairns point guard Travis Trice broke his two-game streak of scoring 28-plus points at home with 12, while Worthington ended up as the Snakes top scorer on 22 points.The result is the Taipans second home loss of the season at the Cairns Convention Centre and puts the Kings three games clear of second-placed Illawarra on the ladder.Sydney play Melbourne United on Sunday, while the Taipans back up on home turf on Monday night against the Adelaide 36ers. Authentic Panthers Jerseys . Mickelson barely made the cut but had the best round of the day with nine birdies and an eagle coupled with two bogeys to sit two shots behind leader Craig Lee of Scotland. Lee shot a 69 for a 12-under 204 total. "I just love the fact I am in contention and have an opportunity in my first tournament of the year here in Abu Dhabi," Mickelson said. Cheap Panthers Jerseys . The (11-11-4) Jets are seventh in the Central Division with 26 points.  Fifth place Dallas and sixth-seeded Nashville also have 26 points, but the Stars have three games in hand on Winnipeg while Nashville has two.http://www.authenticpanthersshopnfl.com/ . Colin Wilson had two goals and an assist, and Mike Fisher scored a goal and helped set up two others in the Predators 6-4 victory over the Red Wings on Monday night. Week 9 gave fantasy owners a fair share of logic games to play.Whos the real lead back in New Orleans? How will changes in Minnesota and Jacksonville affect the offenses? And just how much faith should you have in injured stars like Randall Cobb and Travis Benjamin trying to play through their ailments?Theres also strategy to consider as the bye weeks fade, changing how rosters should be composed leading into the fantasy playoffs.INJURY REPORTBenjamin came into Week 9 with a PCL injury and promptly left the game early with more concerns, not returning to San Diegos win over the Titans. Benjamin will now likely sit through the Week 11 bye, if not longer. Fantasy players should consider adding Dontrelle Inman, who caught six passes for 56 yards on Sunday, and is owned in just 14 percent of CBSSports.com leagues.In other wait-and-see injury news, Jeremy Maclin re-injured his groin, Victor Cruz left with an ankle injury, Derrick Henry hurt his calf in warmups, Ryan Fitzpatrick left briefly (but returned) with a knee issue, Allen Hurns was concussed, Kenneth Dixon left late with a bruised chest, and Browns quarterback Cody Kessler had X-rays on a leg.THE SAINTS GO RUNNING INMark Ingram was benched in the first quarter last week after an untimely fumble, and didnt see another carry in the game. In Week 9, against the leagues worst run defense, Ingram was out-carried by teammate Tim Hightower, 23 to 15, but still managed 158 rushing yards and a touchdown. Hightower, while not as effective as Ingram, still had a solid fantasy game, with 87 rushing yards and a touchdown of his own.But this game was against the 49ers, a run defense looking like it will be historically bad (and, therefore, wonderfully fruitful for fantasy owners to start their running backs against). The New Orleans backfield is headed down the path of a frustrating timeshare, with neither back running clearly ahead of the other. Ingram and Hightower owners may want to consider trading them away to owners unaware of how poor the San Francisco run defense is.TIME TO LOAD UP ON RUNNING BACK HANDCUFFSThe two weeks of heavy byes are now behind us, so expect a flurry of activity on the fantasy waiver wire this week as teams drop their fringe players for handcuffs and security. A few under-the-radar players to consider include:- Kapri Bibbs: the handcuff to Broncos running back Devontae Booker, who is playing with an injured shoulder. Bibbs had a bbrilliant 69-yard touchdown reception against the Raiders Sunday. Panthers Jerseys Store. - Alfred Morris: the handcuff to Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott.- Kenneth Farrow: the backup to Chargers running back Melvin Gordon.- Kenneth Dixon: the backup to Ravens running back Terrance West.MISCELLANEOUS- If youre still holding on to -- or holding out hope for -- Devin Funchess (one catch for 28 yards in Week 9), it is safe to drop him for one of the handcuffs listed above.- Cordarrelle Patterson caught six passes for 45 yards, but dropped what could have been the game-winning touchdown late in the fourth quarter of Minnesotas loss to Detroit. While Pattersons recent involvement in the pass game wasnt stunted with the resignation of offensive coordinator Norv Turner, a wide-open drop in the end zone at a crucial moment in the game wont help his cause.- The Jaguars also changed coordinators coming into Week 9, and the move had no effect on receiver Marqise Lee, who caught four passes for 84 yards. Lee is averaging 68 receiving yards over his last four games. With 453 total yards this season, Lee -- owned in nine percent of CBS leagues -- is the Jacksonville leader in that category.- One stark change in Jacksonville was the emergence of Chris Ivory, who ran the ball 18 times for 107 yards and a touchdown. T.J. Yeldon, meanwhile, caught five passes for 32 yards and a touchdown. New Jags offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett ran a two-back system in Buffalo in 2013 and 2014 with Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller. Jackson led the team in receptions in 2014. So while Yeldon owners may try to pawn off their back after seeing Ivory dominate the carries, fantasy owners in point-per-reception leagues could get a shrewd buy-low pickup.- Ronnie Hillman ran seven times for 30 yards and caught one pass for 32 yards for a Vikings run game that is lacking a breakout performer. While Hillman may not fully supplant Jerrick McKinnon (seven attempts for 8 yards) or Matt Asiata (nine attempts for 27 yards), the Vikings -- who have lost three in a row -- are reeling and could give Hillman an opportunity in hopes of turning their fortunes around.BYESNext week, the Bills, Lions, Colts, and Raiders are on bye.---This column was provided to The Associated Press by the Fantasy Sports Network, http://FNTSY.com Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys AuthenticWholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
