NEW ORLEANS -- When Pelicans 7-footer Jason Smith stepped outside for the type of mid-range jumper he hits routinely, Oklahoma Citys Serge Ibaka sprang out to the perimeter and blocked the shot. Cordy Glenn Jersey . While the Thunder can usually rely on plenty of scoring from Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, it was a concerted defensive effort in the second half that helped them build and keep a comfortable lead down the stretch in a 109-95 victory over New Orleans on Friday night. "Everybody did a great job helping each other on defence and there was more communication," said Ibaka, who had 17 points, 13 rebounds and three of the Thunders 11 blocks. "Our focus was to contest every shot and make them make tough shots. Some nights they will make them but I think tonight we did a great job and that was the key." Durant scored 29 points and Westbrook added 25 as Oklahoma City beat New Orleans for the ninth straight time and 14th in 15 meetings. Most of those games occurred when New Orleans team was called the Hornets. Ryan Anderson scored 18 for the Pelicans, who lost their second straight at home while playing their third full game without power forward Anthony Davis, sidelined by a broken left hand. New Orleans also lost guard Tyreke Evans to a left ankle sprain late in the third quarter, and soon afterward Oklahoma City built a 15-point lead. "I hate to say we didnt play well. We just missed so many shots in the paint," Pelicans coach Monty Williams said. "Whether they blocked the shot or distracted us, or we threw it up there and just didnt make it, I thought that messed with us a little." New Orleans raced to an early double-digit lead, only to fall behind 58-52 by halftime after Westbrook pulled up for a quick 3-pointer with 31 seconds left in the quarter and Reggie Jackson hit another with 2.7 seconds left. Westbrook said he was just trying to assure his team two possessions inside the last 38 seconds. "It worked out for us," he said. "We got two 3s out of it. They got nothing." Durant, who also had three blocks, opened the second half with a 3 to make it a nine-point game and the Thunder led the entire second half -- rather comfortably throughout the fourth quarter, going up by as many as 20. It was precisely the type of second-half effort the Thunder sought after giving up 35 third-quarter points in a loss at Portland two nights earlier. "We were really disappointed in how we lost last game and wanted to be better," Durant said. "Were a really good team after losses." Jackson scored 15 for Oklahoma City, which shot 50.6 per cent (39 of 77) and rarely allowed its lead to slip below double digits after Thabo Sefoloshas driving dunk made it 74-64 in the middle of the third quarter. Jrue Holiday and Eric Gordon each scored 16 for New Orleans, which shot 37.5 per cent (33 of 8Cool and hurt itself by going 3 of 16 from 3-point range. Evans had 11 before his injury and Anthony Morrow 10. Oklahoma City shot nearly 59 per cent in the opening half, when Durant (19 points) and Westbrook (17) combined for 36 points. New Orleans had the largest lead of the half when Holidays reverse layup made it 22-11 halfway through the opening quarter. But the Thunder chipped away, regaining the lead early in the second. The game was tied at 52 after Gordons fast-break layup. Then came the back-to-back 3s by Westbrook and Jackson in the final half-minute of the second quarter, and the Thunder never trailed again. NOTES: Oklahoma City, which is 9-0 at home, improved to 5-4 on the road. ... New Orleans outrebounded Oklahoma City 49-41. Smith grabbed 12 rebounds for the Pelicans and Al-Farouq Aminu had 10. ... Oklahoma City turned 16 New Orleans turnovers into 24 points and outscored the Pelicans in fast-break points 17-10. ... New Orleans might have lost the game by an even wider margin if not for 19 offensive rebounds and 20 second-chance points. Mark Walton Bengals Jersey . Players suspended during the season for a performance-enhancing drug violation will not be eligible for that years post-season. In addition, discipline will increase from 50 games to 80 for a first testing violation and from 100 games to a season-long 162 for a second. A third violation remains a lifetime ban. Logan Woodside Bengals Jersey . Leverkusen said on Friday it signed Schmidt on a two-year contract. He guided Red Bull Salzburg to the Austrian championship this season. . The agreement comes a little more than one week after the video game manufacturer agreed to a $40 million settlement in a similar but separate case, bringing the total payout planned for athletes to $60 million, said Steve Berman, an attorney for the plaintiffs, and the NCAA.When every team had reached the halfway mark of its 2014 season, one name stood out in the race for The Associated Press NFL awards: Arizona coach Bruce Arians.The other seven honours, including the new assistant coach award, should provide a mad scramble heading toward January.Measuring performance through the first eight games can be a valuable tool in predicting which teams and individuals will be busy in January.Still, things often change as the weather gets colder, the schedule gets shorter and the pressure ramps up.Some would argue, though, that Arians deserves top coaching honours regardless of how his Cardinals fare the rest of the way. They have the NFLs best mark through eight games despite a bunch of injuries and living in the rugged NFC West.How are the Cardinals 7-1 after missing their starting QB for three games and, at one point in the season, being down six of last years starters in the front seven? asks Jenny Vrentas of The Monday Morning Quarterback and one of 50 panel members who vote for the awards in January. The first reason is good coaching. Arians hasnt let his team make any excuses and has taken control of the formidable NFC West at midseason.Of the half-dozen AP voters asked in an informal survey, all six selected Arians as Coach of the Year so far.As for the APs newest award, for assistant coaches, Arians defensive co-ordinator, Todd Bowles, received lots of support.Bowles is winning, somehow, without Daryl Washington, Karlos Dansby, John Abraham and Darnell Dockett, not to mention lesser injuries this season for Calais Campbell and others, says Don Banks of Todays Jim Corbett favoured Dallas defensive co-ordinator Rod Marinelli, whose unit has played far better than many thought it was capable of doing.Another intriguing race is shaping for Comeback Player of the Year. Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin, Cowboys linebacker Roland McClain, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston, Texans running back Arian Foster and Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer got mentions.Most of them are coming off injury-shortened seasons, while McClain flopped in Oakland and walked away from the game twice in Baltimore.His plan to take a one-year deal with the Eagles instead of trying to hit it big on the market will pay off this coming off-season, Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports says of Maclin.Just as with Coach of the Year consideration, the top defensive player award appears to have been a runaway through the halfway point of the schedule. While Houston and Denver LB Von Miller have stood out, too, Texans DE J.J. Watt has soared highest.Its incredible to think a player as consistently dominant as him can be a part of a team thats lost 17 of its last 23 games, Garafolo notes.The NFLs most disruptive defender does it all, adds Banks. He has the sacks, the touchdowns (three, one each via interception, fumble return and reception), the fumble recoveries, the passes defenced and the tackles for loss to maake this race no contest in 2014. Jessie Bates III Jersey. There figures to be a 16-game contest for Offensive Player of the Year, which quite often is earned because of statistical performance. That could give Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray the nod over the likes of quarterbacks Peyton Manning, Andrew Luck and Tom Brady, and receivers Antonio Brown and Bears RB Matt Forte.The Cowboys running backs streak of eight consecutive 100-yard games ended on Sunday, Vrentas says, but with 1,133 rushing yards so far this season, Murray alone has amassed more yards on the ground than 28 NFL teams.More than 28 teams — try 32 — have had rookies making an impact already. Thats the pattern of the NFL nowadays thanks to the salary cap and the way the passing game has become dominant.So the top two rookie awards are, well, very much up in the air.Not surprisingly, Bob Glauber of Newsday favours a receiver and a cornerback. Glauber pinpoints for Offensive Rookie of the Year Panthers wideout Kelvin Benjamin, who already has 40 catches for 589 yards and five TDs. His choice for Defensive Rookie of the Year is Chicago CB Kyle Fuller, already a starter with three interceptions.Others to consider halfway through the schedule on offence include Bills WR Sammy Watkins, Saints WR Brandin Cooks, Eagles WR Jordan Matthews, Cowboys guard Zach Martin, Packers centre Corey Linsley and Vikings running back Jerick McKinnon.Other defensive contenders range from Ravens linebacker C.J. Mosley to Rams DT Aaron Donald to Browns CB Justin Gilbert to safeties Ha Ha Clinton-Dix of Green Bay, Deone Bucannon of Arizona and Jimmie Ward of San Francisco.Maybe even one of the outstanding rookie kickers — Arizonas Chandler Catanzaro and Philadelphias Cody Parkey — or punter Tress Way or Washington will get recognized.As for the most recognizable award, MVP, quarterbacks usually dominate the conversation. But Murray and Watt certainly have become major parts of the discussion.Corbett, Vrentas and Banks favour Brady.Brady has stats that are comparable to Peyton Manning, and just convincingly outplayed him head to head in Foxboro, Banks says.Glauber likes the five-time MVP Manning, as does Garafolo.I almost went Andrew Luck here, but thats probably a reaction to the down game Manning had in New England followed by Luck and the Colts thrashing the Giants the next day, Garafalo says. Manning has been outstanding once again and his arm strength seems to have gotten even better. Lucks numbers are gaudy and hes been very good, but hes not wrong when he points out there are areas he can clean up.Most intriguing would be if Watt gets strong support for MVP, an award that has gone to just two defensive players: Alan Page (1971) and Lawrence Taylor (1986).Eight-year, $108 million contract extension hasnt led to any complacency, Glauber says of Watt. Just the opposite, the guy goes a million miles an hour on every play.___Online: and Cheap Chargers Jerseys Cheap Rams Jersey Cheap Dolphins Jerseys Cheap Vikings Jerseys Cheap Patriots Jersey Cheap Saints Jerseys Cheap New York Giants Jerseys Cheap Jets Jerseys Cheap Raiders Jerseys Cheap Eagles Jerseys Cheap Steelers Jerseys Cheap 49ers Jerseys Cheap Seahawks Jerseys Cheap Buccaneers Jerseys Cheap Titans Jerseys Cheap Redskins Jerseys ' ' '
