SACRAMENTO, Calif. [url=http://www.custommlbcardinalsjersey.com/custom-adam-wainwright-jersey-large-791q.html]Adam Wainwright[/url] . -- David Lee had 23 points and 11 rebounds, Klay Thompson scored 18 points and the Golden State Warriors held off the Sacramento Kings 101-92 on Wednesday night in a game both teams played short-handed. Stephen Curry added 13 points and eight assists for the Warriors (32-22) in the first game following the All-Star break for each team. Golden State is 3-0 against Sacramento this season. With both centres out with injuries and a shorter roster from trades each team made earlier in the day, the depth of the Warriors was just too much for the Kings to overcome. Isaiah Thomas had 26 points and seven assists, and Travis Outlaw scored 18 points for a Sacramento (18-36) team thats headed for an eighth straight losing season. Quincy Acy grabbed a career-high 12 boards to help the Kings outrebound the Warriors 49-35, but Sacramento committed 21 turnovers, fading in the closing minutes. The game was played in the aftermath of a busy day for both Northern California teams. The Kings traded guard Marcus Thornton to Brooklyn for veterans Jason Terry and Reggie Evans in the afternoon. Just before tipoff, the Warriors acquired point guard Steve Blake from the Los Angeles Lakers for reserves Kent Bazemore and MarShon Brooks. Andrew Bogut also missed his fifth straight game for the Warriors with a left shoulder injury. DeMarcus Cousins, who strained his left hip flexor in Sacramentos final game before the break in New York, also sat out. Both centres are day to day. The Kings dropped to 0-8 without Cousins this season but still led 76-75 entering the fourth quarter. The Warriors quickly put together a pair of scoring spurts to pull away. Lee converted a layup through traffic, Thompson made a 3-pointer and Andre Iguodala hit a fadeway jumper in an 8-0 run that gave Golden State an 86-79 lead early in the fourth. After the Kings started to rally, Iguodala found Draymond Green for a dunk, and Lee followed with a layup that put the Warriors up 94-84 with 3:28 remaining that all but sealed it. Most of the game played out in similar fashion. The Warriors went ahead by 10 points in the first quarter and 15 in the second, spreading the floor and moving the ball fast without any true centres on the court. The Kings had come back each time, though, playing just like the two-faced team theyd been before the All-Streak break -- prone to scintillating scoring spurts but, at times, lacking defence and discipline -- that buried them at the bottom of the Western Conference standings. Sacramento scored the final nine points of the third quarter, including the last six by Thomas, to take a 76-75 lead before the Warriors pulled away for good. NOTES: The teams meet for the final time this season April 4 in Oakland. ... Recently retired NFL tight end Tony Gonzalez, a former star at California, sat in a courtside seat between Kings owner Vivek Ranadive and team executive Chris Mullin. ... The Warriors are hoping Blake will be in uniform when they host Houston on Thursday night in Oakland. ... Terry and Evans should have plenty of time to make it to Sacramento before the Kings host Boston on Saturday night.

Queensland celebrate with the State of Origin trophy after winning the series 2-1 Ive been playing Origin since 1980 and there has always been angst between the two sides, he said.That has never flowed over to the Australian side, in my experience.

A thrilling 18-16 win over title-chasing Wigan on Friday took the Rhinos to 11th place, which brought some relief for coach Brian McDermott.Leeds have never finished bottom in their 136-year history, so of course it means a lot, McDermott said. The job is not done yet, but were really pleased to be off the bottom, lets hope we can finish ninth. Highlights of Leeds win over Wigan The Rhinos were taken closer to safety with victory over the Warriors, but are not clear of last place just yet.McDermotts side take on Hull KR live on Sky Sports this Thursday, and if Hull KR come out on top and Huddersfield beat Warrington on Saturday, then the Rhinos will finish the regular season at the bottom of the table. The Rhinos will want to put the matter to bed by beating the Robins to turn their attention to the Middle 8s but there is more than just history riding on the Leeds-Hull KR game - whichever side wins the game is guaranteed an extra home game in the Middle 8s.Wolfpack auditionsThe Toronto Wolfpack join the League 1 competition in 2017 and they have announced they are recruiting players for their opening season.The franchise has set up an eight-city tour of the US and Canada to give athletes a chance to audition for the final squad, with NFL hubs Chicago, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia all on the agenda.There are expected to be some former NFL stars in the mix at trials, which director of rugby Brian Noble feels will benefit the Wolfpack.

Brian Nobles side will undertake an eight-city tour to unearth talent Were all very excited by it and ready for it - although with the characters involved Im not sure North America will be ready for us, Noble told The Mirror.Personally, Ive always coveted looking at the market over there and the athletes that we will be able to tap into.We understand that there will be an element of upskilling, but if we have guys that can do a 10-second 100 metres, or are the size of a house and can lift a house, then theyll be on the bus.Championship goes down to the wireThe Kingstone Press Championship regular season is going down to the wire with Featherstone and Bradford meeting in a winner-takes-all clash on Sunday.The sides are level on 28 points with Bradford currently occupying fourth place due to a superior scoring difference, but defeat for the Bulls at The Big Fellas Stadium will see them miss out on a place in the Qualifiers. We take a look back at the best coach quotes from round 22 of Super League Featherstone followed up their impressive away win over Batley with a 24-20 victory over Halifax at the Shay, while Bradford winger Omari Carol scored five tries to help his side to a 44-12 victory over Oldham.Four teams remain in the hunt for two remaining places in the Qualifiers, with Batley in pole position after beating second-placed London. John Kears men require just a point from their trip to Swinton to join Leigh and the Broncos in the mix for a tilt at Super League.Sixth-placed Halifax still have an outside chance of reaching the Qualifiers for the second successive year. They need to beat London and hope Batley slip up at Swinton.Rabbitohs feeling the pressureSam Burgess is not having a good time of it as Rabbitohs captain - South Sydney lost 30-10 to the Broncos over the weekend to move their losing streak to over 60 days.Its not great is it? said Burgess. Losing games? Its not great. Sam Burgess Rabbitohs are struggling to find their 2014 form. To add further woe, South Sydney are now almost certain to miss their first finals campaign since 2011, as Saturdays loss sent them plummeting to 13th in the league.The Rabbitohs were NRL winners just two years ago, with Burgess then making the move to rugby union. A season with Bath and England failed to seal a permanent move as the 27-year-old returned to the NRL with his former club.However, both Burgess and the Rabbitohs have failed to regain the form that crowned them 2014 champions.Pat Richards kickDid Pat Richards make this conversion? It certainly sparked plenty of debate! Did this conversion attempt from Pat Richards go over? The commentary team initially thought it went over but the touch judges disagreed. The crowd felt it was between the uprights but there was no outcry from the Dragons players who accepted the call.It had to have been close, and as no further points were scored for the remainder of the game the result hinged on the call as Richards failed to tie the game with the kick.The replays suggests there wasnt much in it, but the men in the middle were in the best place to make the call and both adjudged it to have missed - play the video to see if you agree.
