The Golden State Warriors claimed an early lead in the NBA Finals with a 104-89 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers in the opening game of the series. Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic . The Cavaliers managed to keep Warriors stars Steph Curry and Klay Thompson quiet, but ran into a strong bench performance from the reigning NBA champions.Curry and Thompson combined for only 20 points, but they were rescued by some poor Cavaliers shooting and superb efforts from bit-part players Shaun Livingston and Leandro Barbosa. Splash Brothers Curry and Thompson made only eight of their 27 shots, with Curry contributing a below-par 11 points and Thompson only nine.But with the bench in red-hot form, and Draymond Green not far off a triple-double, fans at the packed Oracle Arena were still able to celebrate a home victory. Steph Curry managed only 11 points in a below-par performance but the Warriors were still big winners Green scored 16 points to go with 11 rebounds and seven assists, while Livingston led their scoring assault with 20 points on 8-of-10 shooting.Clevelands star players scored well, but their shooting was off target as they hit only 38 per cent of their shots from the floor. LeBron James contributed 23 points for the Cavaliers, but their roster depth was exposed by Golden State LeBron James kicked off his sixth straight finals appearance with 23 points, 12 rebounds and nine assists, while Kyrie Irving, who suffered a serious knee injury in the game one of the finals last year, scored 26 points, 11 of them on free throws.But, where Golden States bench players accounted for 45 points, only 10 came from Clevelands reserves, much to the delight of Warriors coach Steve Kerr.Weve talked about our depth for the last two years. We rely on a lot of people. We play a lot of people, and we feel like we have a lot of talent on the bench that can come in and score when we need it, Kerr said.So its a great sign, obviously, that we can win in the finals without those two guys having big games, but its not really that surprising to us. This has been our team the last couple of years. Cheap Reds Jerseys Authentic .

Newcastle dominated in the early stages but City weathered the storm and then raised its game in extra time. Negredo broke the deadlock from close range after a simple move in the 99th minute before Dzeko took the ball round goalkeeper Tim Krul to seal the victory in the 105th. MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesotas replacement plan for Teddy Bridgewater has received an emergency activation.Shaun Hill will be the first remedy.I have confidence in him, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said. I have confidence in this football team.Bridgewaters recovery from a badly damaged left knee, sustained during a seemingly harmless drill in practice Tuesday with nobody near him, will be the most important development for the Vikings over the next year and beyond.The most crucial issue for the teams immediate future will be how well Hill, or whoever else might wind up leading the huddle in the 2016 season, can handle the caretaker role while Bridgewater embarks on an arduous rehab.Hill has started 34 games over a borderline-nomadic career in the league. None came in the playoffs.As a 15-year veteran, the value of Hills experience is deeper than the spot duties he has handled with San Francisco, Detroit, St. Louis and now Minnesota following the injuries that thrust him into action.Zimmer, at the beginning of training camp when Hills capability as a backup was being discussed, recalled a scenario from 2015 when Hill was running the offense in spring practice. The timeouts in this particular drill were used up, so Hill was already thinking a step ahead.He said, `Do you want an incompletion, or should I take a sack in this situation? Zimmer said then. Things like that make me think, too. He has seen so many things. He catches on quick. He understands the offense. And hes a good guy.Hill is 17 for 25 for 192 yards with no interceptions, or touchdowns, in the preseason. He probably wont play on Thursday when the Vikings host St. Louis in their final exhibition game. Keeping him healthy is far more important than giving him a few extra snaps to tune up for the opener at Tennessee on Sept. 11.Hill never threw a pass that counted in a four-year stint with the Vikings, who signed him out of Maryland as an undrafted free agent in 2002. The two kneel-downs he took in the 2005 season finale marked his only official appearance.He started 16 games over four years with the 49ers because of injuries to Trennt Dilfer and Alex Smith. Wholesale Reds Jerseys. . Matthew Stafford went down in 2010, giving Hill a 10-game run in his first of four seasons with the Lions. Sam Bradford was hurt in 2014 during training camp with the Rams, so Hill took his turn in the opener against, fittingly, the Vikings. He started eight games that year before rejoining his original team, going 3-5 to bring his career record to 16-18.Lacking the arm strength to stretch the field, theres nothing special about Hill and his skills. If theres a reason for hope for Vikings fans, its that they were second to last in the league last season in passing touchdowns and yards and still won the NFC North with an 11-5 record.The plan was to strike more of a run-pass balance this year, and Bridgewater was showing strides with the deep throws throughout the preseason. But Adrian Peterson is still in the backfield, and the defense is still stacked.We have a good defensive team. Our offensive line is much better. We have good receivers. We have maybe the best running back in the NFL, Zimmer said. So this is about a team.Taylor Heinicke, the third-stringer last year, has been out with a severed tendon around his left ankle. He could be back soon and work his way into the mix. Regardless, general manager Rick Spielman will be scrutinizing veteran options the rest of the week.Matt Flynn, Michael Vick and T.J. Yates are among the free agents. Current backup quarterbacks who could become available, if theyre let go this weekend or offered in a trade, include Mike Glennon, Colin Kaepernick, Mark Sanchez, Geno Smith and Brandon Weeden.Were going to try figure out the very best way we can to beat the team that were playing that week, Zimmer said. However we have to do it, if its running the ball 65 times or throwing it 65 times, it doesnt really matter. We have a good football team, and thats what were going to do.---Online:AP NFL website: and AP NFL coverage on Twitter: ;Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
