The West Indies attack restricted South Africa to 122-8 after Sammy opted to bowl first on a slow pitch but only with two balls to spare did they chase down the total to win by three wickets.I was smiling...but inside there were some butterflies, the captain admitted. We came here to win this match to qualify and we have done that so I am very happy.He added: Weve been getting wickets in the powerplay, and thats been putting pressure on the opposition.Today we were under pressure chasing a low total, and every decision we took out there they responded. But I really want to commend my team.The World Twenty20 Super 10 victory in Nagpur puts undefeated West Indies through to join New Zealand in the semi-finals.But it means South Africa, who have never lifted the trophy but were one of the pre-tournament favourites, only have two points from three Group One games and look like going out.

LeBron James leads the Miami Heat in a quest for three consecutive championship titles, while Tim Duncan looks to add his fifth ring with the San Antonio Spurs when the series tips off with Game 1: Miami @ San Antonio on Thursday, June 5 at 9 p. CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Bobcats centre Al Jefferson said that while his left foot remains extremely sore, he plans to play in Game 2 of the best-of-seven playoff series Wednesday night against Miami Heat. "Im suiting up," Jefferson said Monday. "Its going to take more than that to make me sit out. We have worked too hard to get to this point." Jefferson injured his foot in the first quarter of Sundays 99-88 loss to the two-time defending NBA champions. Charlottes leading scorer skipped a light team workout Monday and said he doesnt plan to practice Tuesday. That means he wont test out the foot until the shoot around period on Wednesday morning. His left foot remains in a walking boot and hell continue to receive treatment for the next two days. First-year coach Steve Clifford said the medical staff informed him Jefferson doesnt run the risk of serious injury if he continues to play on the injured foot. Clifford also said the injury wont require surgery this off-season. "There would be no long term effects, nothing that could be permanent going forward. So that part were not worried about," Clifford said. In essence, the injury is all about the 6-foot-10, 289-pound Jefferson managing the pain, something the 10-year NBA veteran said he didnt do well in Game 1 even though he finished with 18 points and 10 rebounds in the loss. "I have to adjust to the pain," Jefferson said. "I have to go out there and know that its going to be there and have that mindset. To me that will make me handle it a lot better. Last game it came out of nowhere and I didnt know what I was limited to and what I could and couldnt do. Now I know." Jefferson received two pain killer injections during Sundays game after injuring the foot in the first quarter while coming off a double screen.

"They are going to be my new best friend," he said with a laugh. After Sundays game, Heat centre/power forward Chris Bosh said Miami went after Jefferson to test his injured foot. The Bobcats are expecting the Heat will run plenty of pick and rolls at Jefferson to test his mobility in Game 2. But Clifford seems more worried about Jeffersons play on the offensive end, rather this ability to adjust on defence. "I thought it hampered him a lot more offensively than defensively," Clifford said. "We watched on film a couple of the pick and rolls and he defended them fine. His problem is he cant pivot hard off that foot and that is such a big part of his game -- the quick spins, going one way, faking and going back the other way. I thought it hurt his offence a lot more than his defence." Point guard Kemba Walker, who led the Bobcats in scoring in Game 1, said he and his teammates are going to have to help pick up the slack if Jefferson is limited. "I definitely think I have to increase my level of play and be a lot more aggressive offensively," Walker said. "Other guys as well. I think everyone is looking forward to that challenge." Cliffords other concern heading into Game 2 is limiting turnovers. Charlotte turned it over 15 times leading to 20 points for the Heat. "They dont need 20 points," Jefferson said. Said Clifford: "We need maximum concentration and maximum intensity, starting with the turnovers. You have to concentrate on the reasons you win and you play well. I think we can do better." ' ' '
