you have to get a yellow card out

TSNs Jack Armstrong offers his thoughts on the agressiveness of Paul George, the struggles of LeBron James in Game 5, the prospects of Billy Donovan as an NBA head coach, the swagger of Cory Joseph and the maturation of Russell Westbrook. Corey Coleman Jersey . 1. Paul George (Pacers): Brilliant fourth quarter Wednesday night as he saved his team from elimination. Unfortunately, we havent see that from him enough in the playoffs and surely in the second half of the regular season. He let it rip in Game 5 and loved his aggressiveness and the attack mode that he took. When he plays like an elite player, it settles the rest of the roster down and guys are able to play their games. Still dont like their chances though; their bench has been a huge bust and though the defence was a bit better Wednesday, it hasnt been up to par in this series. I like Miami to close in Game 6 at home. 2. LeBron James (Heat): Played less than 25 minutes due to foul trouble! How often do you ever hear or see that? An aberration to say the least. Obviously, that helped the Pacers immensely. I tend to doubt youll be hearing that phrase too often the rest of the playoffs for Mr. James. When its time for the spotlight to shine brightest, hell be out there. 3. Billy Donovan (University of Florida): Where there is smoke, there is fire. Keep hearing his name when you talk about NBA jobs. Hes a terrific head coach and has done a wonderful job with the Gators. Already took the Orlando Magic job and then backed out years ago when Stan Van Gundy ended up taking it. Worked out great for both guys. Talking to a number of college coaches of late, many of them are getting tired of the one and done mentality that many players have and the concept of the free agent mentality that many players have today regarding transferring out each offseason. I know, I get it, its a two-way street for both sides yet I think when  you coach at the highest level in top-notch leagues and have constant movement each year, you say to yourself, might as well get to where everyones trying to get to and not have to deal with recruiting and academics and the goofy NCAA rules and deal totally with why you do it in the first place: basketball - the game - and not the other nonsense. Like many college coaches, Im sure Donovan has had those thoughts. If he comes to the NBA, I have no doubt hed be good. 4. Cory Joseph (Spurs): Loved the swagger he played with in Game 4. Came in and looked like he belonged. Love the dunk on Serge Ibaka; posterized him! Hes a passionate competitor and you cant discount that playing in San Antonio has greatly helped his development as a young player. Hes had nice stints of play at times this year and with a guy like Patty Mills in front of him behind Tony Parker, minutes are tough to come by. When youre called upon, be ready. He has shown me that when that happens, hes ready to get after it. Good for him. 5. Russell Westbrook (Thunder): What a Game 4 performance with 40 points, 10 assists, five rebounds and five steals. When you look around the NBA right now, there arent many more talented guys than this guy out there. Yes, at times, he can drive you crazy with his self-absorbed play but you cant discount his ability. Hopefully, the consistent maturity and professional/team-oriented approach becomes a part of his daily persona. I see a young guy that is maturing and still figuring it out; a guy you definitely stick with because there is so much there and he really wants to win. Just still learning how to go about it the right way, but its coming.  Custom Browns Jersey . Although the two players had faced each other a few times in doubles, it was their first encounter in a singles match. Williams will be participating in her fourth semifinal of the year after Oakland, Dubai and the Rogers Cup in Montreal. Paul Kruger Browns Jersey .Y. -- Dont rule out Niagara Falls as a potential future home of the Buffalo Bills.PARIS -- Paris Saint-Germains hopes of a domestic treble are over after a surprise 2-1 home defeat by Montpellier in the French Cup on Wednesday. PSG had scored 15 goals in the four previous games, but coach Laurent Blancs decision not to start with regulars Zlatan Ibrahimovic, midfielder Thiago Motta and goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu backfired against an inspired Montpellier team that advanced to the last 16 of the cup. Backup goalkeeper Nicolas Douchez was at fault for the first goal as he failed to come for a cross and defender Daniel Congre headed home in the 20th minute. Uruguay forward Edinson Cavani equalized for PSG 10 minutes later, but slack marking allowed Colombian forward Victor Hugo Montano to head a 69th-minute winner for a team languishing in 16th place in the league. "Its an upset, I hope we wont be too tired against Nice on Saturday, but its extraordinary to win here in Paris," Montpellier owner Louis Nicollin said. "It was impossible. Theyd scored five at the weekend (against Nantes)." Cavani scored his 20th goal of the season with a tap-in from left back Lucas Dignes cross, but he somehow missed an open goal moments later. Javier Pastores shot was then saved by goalie Laurent Pionnier in the 55th as PSG squandered chances. Blanc brought on Ibrahimovic and Motta in the 66th, but poor defending let PSG down again as Montano was unchallenged to head past a static Douchez. Also, Monaco advanced with a 3-0 win at amateur side Chasselay. The win was tempered by a knee injury to Colombia striker Radamel Falcao, who faces an anxious wait to find out if he has a serious injury ahead of the World Cup. He opened the scoring for Monaco in the 29th minute with his 11th goal of the season, but was caught by a heavy tackle from Chasselay centre half Soner Ertek in the 40th. After receiving treatment he was stretchered off a few minutes later and replaced by Emmanuell Riviere, who scored twice in the second half. Authentic Gary Barnidge Jersey. Monaco coach Claudio Ranieri was furious with match referee Philippe Kalt for not taking firmer action against Chasselays players. "If Falcao has a serious injury, its the referees fault. Its not possible to let things go like that," Ranieri said. "When there are fouls, you have to whistle. When its a bad foul, you have to get a yellow card out and if theres another bad foul, then its a red. Tonight I saw neither." On a night of upsets, amateur side Lile Rousse and Moulins advanced against first division sides. Lile Rousse, which plays in the equivalent of the fifth division, beat Bordeaux -- ninth in the top flight -- 4-3 in a penalty shootout after the match finished 0-0. Moulins, which plays in the fourth division, followed up with a 2-1 win against Toulouse -- 11th in Ligue 1 -- thanks to two goals from striker Sebastien Da Silva after Israel forward Eden Ben Basat had given Toulouse a first-half lead. Elsewhere, Lyon survived a scare to beat Yzeure 3-1 -- with Lyon winger Jimmy Briand equalizing straight from the restart after the non-leaguers went 1-0 up in the 74th through midfielder Lamine Mbaye. Yoann Gourcuff continued his fine recent form with a splendid strike from 25 metres to give Lyon the lead and Steed Malbranque added a neat finish as Lyon caught Yzeure on the break. "We have good memories of the French Cup because we won it two years ago," Gourcuff said. "They were very motivated against us but I think we showed the right attitude and didnt panic when we conceded that goal." The 27-year-old Gourcuff has scored three times in the past four games and is pushing for a recall to the France squad. "Im just thinking about playing and enjoying myself out on the pitch," Gourcuff said. "Im injury free now and the more I play, the better I feel."
