NEW YORK, N. Chris Harris Jr Jersey .Y. - David West didnt like it when Kevin Garnett blew in his ear, so he helped Indiana blow out the Nets.West scored 15 of 17 points in the second half, Rodney Stuckey had 20, and the Pacers overwhelmed Brooklyn 110-85 on Saturday night.West got a technical foul with 6:54 left in the first quarter when he confronted Garnett after the Nets veteran blew in his face.The power forward was in a light mood afterward, comparing Garnetts antics to when former Pacers guard Lance Stephenson blew in LeBron James ear during last seasons playoffs.I think Lances was more sensual. That was an aggressive one, West said. I didnt like it. It was too much.Indiana coach Frank Vogel wasnt too sure what he was going to get from Stuckey, whose vision in his right eye was blurred after taking a shot during Friday nights game at Detroit.After Brooklyn cut the deficit to 69-60 with 2:54 remaining in the third quarter on a 3-pointer by Deron Williams, Stuckey whose eye was still red sparked a 24-11 run with nine points to take a 93-71 lead with 8:27 left in the fourth.Indiana converted nine Nets turnovers into 12 points during that six minute-plus span.Im fine though. Its a little blurry, said Stuckey, who scored 13 points in the second half. Just got to play through it. We were short-handed tonight. C.J. Miles was out. (Donald Sloan) didnt make the trip. Just needed to play.Indianas bench, third-best in the league with 39.6 points entering the game, outscored its Brooklyn counterparts 52-16.Former Nets guard C.J. Watson, who played for Brooklyn during the 2012-13 season, came off the bench and scored 17 points. Luis Scola added 13, Chris Copeland had 12 and Lavoy Allen chipped in 10.We were just trying to out there and be aggressive and keep the lead, Miles said. We were moving the ball, playing well together and it worked out for us.Jarrett Jack had 22 points and Joe Johnson added 18 for Brooklyn, which had won its previous three games. The Nets, who entered the night 12-2 against teams with losing records, couldnt handle the Pacers, who improved to 11-20.Brooklyn trailed 50-47 at halftime but the second half was a different story as the Nets were outscored 60-38 while allowing the Pacers to shoot 23 for 43 from the field.Once again Brooklyn decided to bring Williams and Brook Lopez off the bench after both players had recently returned from calf and back injuries, respectively.After the game, Brooklyn coach Lionel Hollins was critical of his duos play, as two of the franchises top players shot a combined 2 for 12 and committed five turnovers, including three during that critical stretch in which the Pacers blew the game open.Williams, who played his second straight game after missing the previous two due to a strained right calf, agreed with his coachs assessment.Hes right, hes definitely right, we do have to play better, Williams said. Were two of the highest-paid players on the team and so thats our responsibility to play better. Hopefully we can accept that challenge. I do, I think Brook does and just move forward.TIP-INSPacers: Miles, who left Friday nights game at Detroit due to upper respiratory problems, was held out of the game. . The bench started the game leading NBA reserve units with 19.6 rebounds a game. They tallied 23 tonight. It was the 15th time this season they scored 40 or more points. . The Pacers are 0-7 when their bench is outscored this season.Nets: Brooklyn hit its first four shots but finished the first half shooting 10 for 39. . Sergey Karasev, whos started the last five games at shooting guard in place of Bojan Bogdanovic, had a career-high 14 points.POINTING AHEADPoint guard George Hill, who missed the first 28 games of the season due to a left knee contusion, made his first start after coming off the bench his previous two games. He scored 12 points and had five assists and six rebounds in 23 minutes.UP NEXTPacers: Host Chicago on Monday night.Nets: Host Sacramento on Monday night. Virgil Green Jersey . Maximilian Arnold put Wolfsburg ahead in the eighth minute, when the stationary Fallou Diagne allowed him to guide Patrick Ochs cross beyond the helpless Freiburg goalkeeper, and Ivica Olic doubled the lead three minutes later after Luiz Gustavo did well to set him up. Shannon Sharpe Jersey . - Even with a new coach, the Denver Nuggets still love to push the basketball. http://www.broncosproauthentic.com/Black-Friday-John-Elway-Jersey/ . The stakes were higher, the competition more fierce and the atmosphere was that of a playoff game - something the young, upstart Raptors have five weeks to better prepare themselves for or the result will be eerily similar.WINNIPEG James Reimer was hoping to reignite the Leafs goaltending competition with a start just outside his hometown of Morweena, Manitoba. It didnt go as planned. Reimer allowed two goals on the first four Winnipeg shots, the was pulled for the fifth time this season in an eventual overtime loss to the Jets. Afforded just his fourth start in the past 16 games, the 25-year-old was unable to snatch an opportunity toward reclaiming some part of his old no. 1 job, one that has become the tentative property of counterpart Jonathan Bernier. "Just a tough one," said a sullen Reimer after the 5-4 defeat, which concluded a four-game western road trip. "I felt my head was in the right place and sometimes things just dont go your way. And when theyre not going your way, its obviously harder mentally, but you have to find a way to stay focused and I felt that I did what I could to stay focused and ready and prepared and it just didnt happen." Trading starts with Bernier for the opening three months, Reimers season has gradually slid in the wrong direction, the unquestioned starter a year ago now the unofficial backup. Though he offered a sturdy start in Colorado earlier this week, that performance failed to translate into any semblance of momentum. Reimer gave up four goals in relief of Bernier in Dallas and was pegged for four more on just 19 shots in Winnipeg. He now owns an unflattering .870 save percentage in six appearances this month and a .911 mark on the season. "Its tough when you get in there and you dont have a good game," said Reimer. "It doesnt sit well." Seven minutes had not yet elapsed before the Jets had struck twice on the embattled netminder. Mark Scheifele and Blake Wheeler both snuck shots through the body of Reimer, one under the arm and another through the five-hole with the latter a partial power-play rush by the Jets winger and future US Olympian. "The first two goals were goals that I thought were scored in the middle of the net," said Maple Leafs head coach Randy Carlyle. "Those are tough ones." It was at that point, down 2-0 on the road, that Carlyle considered pulling the seemingly nervous netminder, only to leave him in for a chance to fight back. And though Reimer managed to rebound in some respect, including a shorthanded stop on Michael Frolik, he was unable to close the door entirely, allowing two more goals in the middle frame. Bernier stepped in with 13 saves as the Leafs rallied from a 4-1 deficit, only to fall on Dustin Byfugliens overtime winner. Pocketing five of a possible eight points on the four-game swing, Toronto now sits third in the Atlantic division with 60 points. Five Points 1. Kessel in Winnipeg Winnipeg remains advantageous hunting ground for Phil Kessel. The 26-year-old knotted the score at 4-4 with less than two minutes to go in regulation, beating Ondrej Pavelec with his 27th goal of the season, an unlikely snipe from just above the goal-line. He has scored at least a goal in eight-straight games at the MTS Centre, totaling nine in that span. Kessel has 16 points in the past nine games overall and has vaulted to sixth in league scoring with 54 points in 54 games. 2. Sour Penalty Kill Yielding two more power-play goals to the Jets, the Toronto penalty kill fell deeper into whats become a year-long hole. The unit has allowed a bloated 13 goals over the past 15 games and sits as the second-worst in the NHL this season (76.8%.) "Weve found ways to leave people uncovered in that critical area," said Carlyle of the penalty kill. Wheeler scored the first of two power-play goals when he burst wide on Cody Franson, beating Reimer through the five-hole. Bryan Little added the second marker, redirecting a sneaky point pass from Tobias Enstrom. "We shouldve had coverage on that and we vacated that area," Carlyle said, noting a need to intercept the pass with aa stick in the lane. Steve Atwater Jersey. 3. Potent Power-play Countering the teams struggles on the penalty kill has been a continually productive power-play, one that ranks as the third-best in the NHL. Dion Phaneuf scored his first power-play goal of the season against the Jets, giving the Leafs at least one mark on the man advantage in eight of the past 11 games. Cody Franson, second on the team with 16 power-play points, detailed the different components of the top unit, which also includes Phaneuf, Phil Kessel, James van Riemsdyk, Tyler Bozak, and how theyve functioned to have success. "Obviously, [Phaneufs] got a big shot and teams are aware of that and they want to try and take that away. Phil can do so many things with the puck. Hes very deceptive. He makes guys think that hes going to pass and hell have that quick release shot. And its not a quick release where theres nothing on it he can rip a puck. Theres that shot threat. I take pride in being able to shoot the puck, so hopefully thats something other teams are thinking about when Im out there. Youve got JVR in front. Hes one of the best at providing a screen and knocking pucks out of the air. Hes a guy that if teams are doing a good job on us, we can just throw it at the net and we know that hes going to be there whacking at rebounds or tipping pucks into goalies and making it tough on them." Franson calls Bozak the secret facilitator of the units success. "When teams are pressuring really quick, you usually need that quick out to try and get away from the pressure and make them back off and allow us to set up and Bozies probably the most important piece of that," explained Franson. "Hes the guy that controls the middle of the ice and has to make those reads in order to be in the right spot for the guys that are getting the puck in tight situations. He does a great job with that and it allows us to break away from pressure and allow us to set up and do what we want to do out there." 4. Career-High Dishing to Kessel on the game-tying goal, van Riemsdyk notched his 40th point of the season, matching a career-high he set with the Flyers in the 2010-11 season (78 games.) The 24-year-old required 51 games to meet the mark, on pace to set new career-highs in just about every offensive category. "Ever since I got here Ive been given an opportunity to play some key minutes and some key situations," said van Riemsdyk, who also screened Pavelec on the Phaneuf marker. "Ive always had the confidence in myself to be able to contribute when I knew I was getting the chance to do that." Sitting at 20 goals on the year, van Riemsdyk remains one off from matching another career-high (21.) 5. Rare Goal It had been quite awhile for Tim Gleason. Gleason scored the third Leaf goal on Saturday, his first since Dec. 18, 2011 in a string of 117 scoreless games. Not relied upon for his offence in any sense, the 30-year-old grinder has just 16 goals in 627 career games. Stats-Pack 2-1-1 Record for the Leafs on four-game road trip. 4 Starts for James Reimer in the past 16 games. 10-11-5 Leafs road record this season. .870 Save percentage for Reimer in the month of January. 5 Players on the Toronto roster from the province of Manitoba. 29 Career points for Phil Kessel in 28 games against the Jets. 40 Points for James van Riemsdyk this season, matching a career-high. 13 Power-play goals scored against the Leafs in the past 15 games. 117 Games without a goal for Tim Gleason, who finally scored Saturday against the Jets.
