It took five games, but the revamped starting five for the New York Knicks has become a collective force. Cheap Larry Murphy Jersey .Forward Kristaps Porzingis hopes the momentum continues Sunday when the Utah Jazz visit Madison Square Garden.It feels good to get on the right track and play the kind of basketball we want to, Porzingis said after scoring 27 points in New Yorks 117-104 victory in Chicago on Friday. This is a first baby step of how we want to play as a team. This is something to build on.All five starters were in double figures early in the fourth quarter, with Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah making a triumphant return to the United Center.Rose notched his first double-double as a Knick, recording 15 points and 11 assists. Noah contributed 16 points and nine rebounds.Carmelo Anthony added 25 points and Courtney Lee, a free agent acquisition like Noah, tossed in 15 points.We were sharing the ball a lot and we did a good job of being aggressive, Porzingis said after New York improved to 2-3. We made a lot of good plays for each other. Even though we lost the lead, we still found a way to come back. And thats the kind of basketball we want to be playing.Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek had reprimanded his team for not getting Porzingis the ball enough after a 118-99 home loss to Houston on Wednesday, but credited better spacing to allow Porzingis to roam the perimeter.The Jazz (3-3) could receive a boost from small forward Gordon Hayward, the teams leading scorer last season, who will be making his season debut. Hayward is expected to return from a broken finger on his non-shooting hand.The Jazz could use his scoring prowess. Utah shot 37.5 percent from the floor in a 100-86 home loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Friday. Hayward warmed up prior to the game, but did not see any action.Power forward Derrick Favors, who averaged 16.4 points and shot 51.5 percent from the floor last season, has seen his production slip. Hes averaging 8.0 points and shooting 33.3 percent.Favors missed the season opener with a knee injury and came off the bench in his first two games back. He played a season-high 27 minutes Friday and went 3 for 13 from the field.The continuation of the maturity process of second-year pro Trey Lyles, who turned 21 on Saturday, has Utah coach Quinn Snyder excited. Lyles will be up against Noah on Sunday, one of the more physical centers in the league.Treys a talented offensive player, Snyder told the Salt Lake Tribune. He can do things that are unique. He can pass. He can shoot. He can hit the mid-range and three-point shot. (But) he needs to read a situation before he gets the ball.I want him to have an idea of what hes going to do beforehand, so the ball doesnt stick. Hes conscious of that. I want the emphasis to be on his reads.On defense, he has to come out determined and aggressive. If hes behind his man in the post, thats not what we want. We want him in front. We want him to get physically stronger and hold his ground. Not just to absorb contact, but to not get pushed out of the way.I see him continuing to improve.Utah begins its first long road trip of the season as it plays five games in seven nights this week. Cheap Matt Murray Jersey .com) - The game was all punts and field goals before Kodi Whitfields catch. Cheap Jaromir Jagr Jersey .

Hawkins, who turns 41 in December, will compete with Rex Brothers for the closers role at spring training. When Michael Phelps became the first American male swimmer to qualify for his fifth Olympics, he added a huge incentive for two young Indians heading for their first Olympic Games.22-year-old Sajan Prakash and 18-year-old Shivani Kataria are huge Phelps fans, and unabashedly so.Prakash and Kataria stand selected for the Indian contingent through the Universality Rule, which allows countries to nominate one swimmer each even though they may not have met the A standard qualification time.Prakash will be competing in the 200m butterfly, an event that Phelps has won two of his record 18 gold medals in (he also picked up the silver in 2012), and recently clocked 1:59:27 in Hong Kong, the first time an Indian had clocked under two minutes in the meet. Phelps is my idol, and his pet event is the same as mine, says Prakash. I hope we meet in the heats.Kataria, originally from the northern state of Haryana, was an accidental swimmer who also had a choice of playing tennis for a living. She would swim for most of the year while living in the capitaal city of New Delhi, but when the winter would make swimming impossible, she would play tennis. Cheap Joe Mullen Jersey. However, after shifting to a more temperate Bangalore in 2012, she tried mastering all four strokes.I used to look for videos on the internet, says Kataria of her early days as a swimmer. One of the first videos that I found was of Phelps, doing the butterfly. The butterfly is my second stroke, incidentally, says Kataria, who will represent India at the 200 m freestyle in Rio. It is such an elegant stroke, and so tough too!Kataria will become the first Indian woman to compete at the Olympics since Shikha Tandon in 2004, and she cant wait to tick one of the boxes left from the 2015 World Championship, her first as a competitor.I was so excited that I would get to meet so many swimmers. Katie Ledecky, Cam McEvoy... they were all there, says Kataria. But Phelps wasnt there since he was serving a suspension.
