MINNEAPOLIS -- Rudy Gay had 33 points, five rebounds and six assists, and Isaiah Thomas had 26 points and seven assists to lead the Sacramento Kings to a 111-108 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night. Taven Bryan Jersey . Gay hit 12 of 19 shots and Derrick Williams had 16 points on 7-of-11 shooting in his first game at Target Center since the Timberwolves traded him to the Kings in November. DeMarcus Cousins had 20 points and 11 boards, and the Kings shot 55 per cent to win for the fourth time in five games. Kevin Love had 27 points and 11 rebounds for Minnesota. But Ricky Rubio committed five of Minnesotas 12 turnovers and the Wolves fell to 0-11 in games decided by four points or less. The Kings seemed to have the game well in hand with a nine-point lead and under two minutes to play. But Nikola Pekovic scored on a layup, J.J. Barea hit two free throws and Alexey Shved converted on a fast break to make it 102-99 with 61 seconds to play. Love hit two 3-pointers and Barea converted a three-point play that cut the deficit to 109-108 with 4.6 seconds remaining, but Bareas heave at the buzzer fell short. The Kings had a three-game winning streak come to a crashing halt the previous night when they were drubbed by the Indiana Pacers. But they showed more energy, aggressiveness and spark from the opening tip against a team that had the previous two days off and is scratching and clawing to stay in the playoff conversation in the powerful Western Conference. The Timberwolves most damaging loss this season was delivered thanks in large part to an old friend. Williams spent a little more than two underwhelming seasons in Minnesota to start his career. The former No. 2 overall pick just never fit in with the Rick Adelmans corner offence, getting stuck behind Love and veteran Dante Cunningham on the depth chart. Before he was traded to Sacramento at the end of November, Williams was averaging a paltry 14.7 minutes per game and was a healthy scratch four times. On Wednesday night, he resembled much more closely the player that the Wolves thought they were getting in 2011. He shot 5 of 6 in the first half, and four of those were soaring dunks that flashed the kind of athleticism that was on display too little while he was here. When Wolves shooting guard Shved was caught on him on a switch, Williams backed him down forcefully and threw down a two-handed slam. Williams stole the ball and went coast-to-coast for a layup and also threw down a lob pass in transition from Jimmer Fredette in transition that drew a big gasp from fans who wanted to see that in a Timberwolves uniform. Williams electricity and Gays shot-making helped the Kings overcome a quiet start from Cousins, who picked up two fouls in the first quarter and missed his first four shots before getting on the board late in the second quarter. Gay started 8 for 11 and the Kings led by 11 at halftime. Cousins got going in the second half, scoring all but two of his points to help the Kings grind out their fifth road win of the season in 15 games. NOTES: Kings G Ben McLemore left the game in the second quarter with a sprained left ankle. ... Gay has scored 20 or more 7 of last 10 and 11 times in 17 games since he was acquired in a trade from Toronto. Marcell Dareus Jersey .

Off-Season Game Plan looks at the Capitals possible summer plans, with the understanding that its tough to plot a direction without a general manager or head coach around which to set those expectations.BEREA, Ohio - Johnny Manziel seemed a little taller. Not in height, but definitely in stature.The playmaking, headline-making, love-him-or-hate-him sensation who has spent the majority of his rookie season as an orange-helmeted spectator, Manziel is now the Browns starting quarterback — No. 2 is No. 1.And just like when he was college footballs most electrifying player, Manziel is again in the spotlight and not scrambling away. As he prepares for his debut start Sunday against Cincinnati, Manziel said the pro version of Johnny Football is new.I dont think youre going to see the Johnny that you saw at Texas A&M because this isnt Texas A&M, he said Wednesday following his first practice as a starter. This is a different point in my life. Im a different person than I was. Hes been a different quarterback since Monday, when Browns coach Mike Pettine informed the 22-year-old Manziel that he was benching struggling starter Brian Hoyer after a four-game funk. Pettine nearly made the move last week but stuck with Hoyer because he had gotten the Browns (7-6) into playoff contention.Pettines counting on Manziel to keep his team there.We wanted to make a change to do some different things schematically and to maybe bring a little bit more energy, Pettine said.Manziel, whose commitment and dedication to his craft have been questioned in the past, seems to embrace his new role. He spent Tuesday at the teams facility getting a head start on this weeks game plan with offensive co-ordinator Kyle Shanahan. A week ago, Manziel raised some eyebrows by attending a Cavaliers game to see friend LeBron James play before Pettine announced his starter.There was no Cavs game on a Tuesday this time, Manziel said, smiling. Ill try to provide a spark and be smart while doing it.Manziel also made light of a comment by Bengalss coach Marvin Lewis, who called him a midget earlier this week in a radio interview. Barry Church Jersey. Its absolutely funny, the 6-foot Manziel said of the remarks by Lewis, who has apologized several times. Im not going to sprout 5 inches over the course of the week, so my height is my height and I need to overcome it with other pieces of my game.Hoyers game has been in a tailspin for a month. He threw eight interceptions and his quarterback rating dropped each week as the Browns lost three times in the last four games. The stretch has jeopardized Clevelands chances of making the playoffs for the first time in 12 years.Hoyers homegrown, feel-good story and comeback from knee surgery helped make the Browns relevant again. He was understandably disappointed by the demotion but said he was proud of his accomplishments.I dont want anyone to feel sorry for me, said Hoyer, who went 10-6 as a starter and will be a free agent after this season. I got to live out a childhood dream, and its not over.Clevelands locker room is supporting the decision, which certainly has Browns fans invigorated. Ticket brokers have seen a rise in demand since Manziel was named starter and Sundays home finale will have a greater buzz that in previous seasons, when empty seats were the norm.Pro Bowl tackle Joe Thomas said hes excited to see Manziel start after he had some success in the preseason and against Buffalo on Nov. 30.Im excited to see what he can do now that hes got the reins, Thomas said.NOTES: Pettine said a change at kicker was discussed, but the team is sticking with Billy Cundiff. Cundiff has missed seven field goals this season, one in each of the past five games. Billy knows, Pettine said. Its important to him that hes got to pick it up.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap Jerseys China NFL Jerseys China NFL Jerseys Wholesale Discount Basketball Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Baseball Jerseys Free Shipping Cheapest College Jerseys Sale Cheap Football Jerseys China Nike NFL Jerseys Canada Wholesale NHL Jerseys From China MLB Jerseys Outlet Canada Wholesale NBA Jerseys Canada Store Cheap Soccer Jerseys China Cheap Authentic Jerseys Canada ' ' '
