  two-man bobsled. Justin Kripps of Summerland,

MEMPHIS, Tenn. [url=]Juuse Saros Jersey[/url] . - When the Memphis Grizzlies went ahead with 4 minutes left, it was time for Dirk Nowitzki to take over.Nowitzki scored 21 points, including the last eight for Dallas in the final 2 minutes, to lead the Mavericks past the Grizzlies 103-95 on Monday.The Grizzlies took a two-point lead with about 4 minutes to go, but Dallas outscored Memphis 14-4 the rest of the way. Nowitzki hit a pair of mid-range fadeaway jumpers, a layup and then closed out the scoring with two free throws.Ive got to be better and pick my spots when theyre there and just be more efficient, Nowitzki said.Monta Ellis led the Mavericks with 25 points and seven assists. Chandler Parsons added 15 points, and Devin Harris had 12 points off the Dallas bench. Tyson Chandler finished with 10 points and 16 rebounds.Both teams had 42 rebounds, and they were even in turnovers at 13.We stayed even with them on the boards. We had a low turnover game, Dallas coach Rick Carlisle said. If you do those two things, you at least have a chance against these guys.Mike Conley, back after missing two games with a right ankle sprain, led Memphis with 22 points. Marc Gasol scored 20, and Zach Randolph had 18 points and 15 rebounds.The game was physical, with battling under the boards, bodies flying and players and coaches pleading to officials about calls. That fits Memphis style, but the Mavericks held their own.I know its going to be physical any time I come (to Memphis) to play, Chandler said. I mean, I have some scratches and bruises. Its a wrestling match down there any time you face (Gasol and Randolph).The Mavericks were 25 of 33 from the foul line and made 10 of 25 3-pointers. Memphis was 20 of 22 on free throws, but only 3 of 22 outside the arc.The competitive difference in the game was free throws and 3s, Memphis coach Dave Joerger said. Its not hard to do the math.The Mavericks led by as many as 11, and were still up by seven entering the fourth quarter. Memphis tied it at 84, and Conleys 3-pointer with 4:03 left gave the Grizzlies a 91-89 lead.Rajon Rondo had only three field goals in the game, but two came after Memphis took the lead and before Nowitzki went on his spurt. Ellis had the other field goal during that stretch.His shot-making at the end of the third quarter gave us a little bit of daylight and put (the Grizzlies) on their heels, Carlise said of Ellis. Down the stretch, he was making plays both offensively and defensively.___TIP-INSMavericks: Dallas is 13-5 when Chandler has a double-double. ... Nowitzki has reached double figures in all 39 games hes played this season.Grizzlies: The FedExForum was evacuated for a short time about 90 minutes before the opening tip. A mechanical detector went off, activating the alarm. After an investigation, it was determined to be a false alarm. ... Pregame activities included the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day Sports Legacy Symposium honouring Earl Monroe, Jason Collins and Chauncey Billups. ... The Grizzlies are 5-8 on MLK Day.EYE POKEParsons took a finger to the eye in the first half and had trouble shaking off the irritation, wiping his eye with a towel on several occasions. Afterward, he said there was a slight scratch, but nothing that would prevent him from playing.SIGHT TO CAUSE SORE EYESCarlisle said he spent the evacuation time before the game sitting on a bus with Tony Allen in his bathrobe. Allen, the Grizzlies guard-forward, has been wearing a blue bathrobe in the locker room lately. Asked if the visual of Allen would be memorable, Carlisle replied: Hopefully not.UP NEXTMavericks: At Minnesota on Wednesday.Grizzlies: Host Raptors on Wednesday. [url=]Ryan Ellis Jersey[/url] . PETERSBURG, Fla. [url=]Filip Forsberg Predators Jersey[/url] . The Brazilian heads into Saturday afternoons race coming off a close runner-up finish to Ryan Hunter-Reay in the Indianapolis 500. [url=][/url] . PETERSBURG, Fla.CALGARY -- Canadian womens skeleton racer Sarah Reid shrugged her shoulders at the World Cup finish line Friday after just missing out on a chance to lock up a spot for the Sochi Games. About an hour later, Reid was sporting an Olympic-sized grin. The winner had been disqualified after the race due to a sled handle violation. That moved everyone up one position and put Reid into sixth place, which allowed her to book her ticket to Sochi. "Its crazy," Reid said. "I feel like it hasnt really sunk in yet." American Noelle Pikus-Pace finished first in the womens race in one minute 54.88 seconds but her disqualification gave the gold to Britains Elizabeth Yarnold, who finished 0.16 seconds behind. Russias Elena Nikitina earned silver in 1:55.28 and Michelle Steele of Australia took bronze in 1:55.30. Eric Neilson of Kelowna, B.C., also booked his Olympic ticket with a fifth-place result in the mens race at Canada Olympic Park. Neilson also said the Sochi news hasnt sunk in. "Not even close," he said with a laugh. "I dont know if Ill actually believe it until the coaches say, This is our Olympic team. Eric Neilson youre on it -- go." There will be two more World Cup events before the Olympic skeleton roster is officially unveiled Dec. 18. Racers need four top-six finishes over two seasons to qualify for the Sochi Games, but at least one has to come in the current campaign. Bobsledders Jesse Lumsden and Chris Spring reached the podium later in the evening, winning bronze in the two-man event. "I think we both agree were happy, were not satisfied," Lumsden said. "My goal as a pusher is to help Chris have top-three starts every race all year long. So this was a great way to set the tone." Lumsden, from Burlington, Ont., and Spring, from Calgary, were third in 1:49.42. Americans Steven Holcomb and Steve Langton won gold in 1:49.22, just 0.16 seconds ahead of Switzerlands Beat Hefti and Alex Baumann. In the mens skeleton, Martin Dukurs of Latvia set a track record of 55.31 seconds on his second run and earned the mens gold with a two-run time of 1:51.39. Dukurs was well ahead of Alexander Tretiakov of Russia, who finished in 1:52.14. Britains Dominic Edward Parsons won bronze in 1:52.74. Neilson tied his career-best finish at a World Cup. He finished fourth at the world championships last season. Dukurs trimmed over four-10ths of a second off the previous track record (55.72) set by Canadas Jeff Pain in February 2005. The Latvian won the overall World Cup title last season. The track push record also fell Friday. Tretiakovs first start time of 4.75 seconds was a shade better than his previous best of 4. [url=]Roman Josi Predators Jersey[/url]. 76 from November 2005. The Russian improved his mark again with a 4.71 in the second run. Calgary-based racers Dave Greszczyszyn and John Fairbairn also finished in the top 10. Greszczyszyn was sixth in his World Cup debut in 1:53.06 and Fairbairn was ninth in 1:53.17. In the womens race, officials ruled that Pikus-Pace violated Rule 14.5 by racing with additional handles on her sled. Heinz Thoma, a FIBT World Cup co-ordinator, said another team first noticed the violation and pointed it out to an official. "They look at each other carefully," Thoma said. "Were on the way to (the) Olympics." The FIBT is the sanctioning body for bobsled and skeleton. The sled was inspected and the official results were released about an hour after the race finish. Thomas said about one-third of the sleds are usually inspected after a race, adding that violations occur from time to time. He couldnt recall the last time a violation affected a World Cup race winner. Pikus-Pace later told The Associated Press that the British team complained about an extra piece of tape that was wrapped around the handle. The sled -- and the tape -- had both been approved for competition earlier in the week, Pikus-Pace said, and U.S. officials were appealing the disqualification. "Clearly, clearly, I should not have been disqualified," Pikus-Pace told the AP in a phone interview. "Im so frustrated. People get away with whatever and I get disqualified for a piece of tape? A piece of tape that they said was OK? It has no competitive advantage whatsoever." Rule 14.5 states that the saddle handles must be mounted on the construction frame, and that "no additional handles, howsoever they are constructed, are permitted on the saddle." A race official said later in the evening that the appeal would not be entertained and that the decision was final. Reid, who won bronze at the 2013 world championship, was just over a half-second off the lead with a time of 1:55.56. Calgarys Robynne Thompson was eighth and Cassie Hawrysh of Brandon, Man., was 10th. Mellisa Hollingsworth of Eckville, Alta., and 2010 Olympic champion Jon Montgomery of Russell, Man., will open the season on the Intercontinental Cup circuit. Athletes can qualify for Sochi while competing on that circuit or at the World Cup level. Lyndon Rush of Humboldt, Sask., and Calgarys Lascelles Brown were eighth in the two-man bobsled. Justin Kripps of Summerland, B.C., and Bryan Barnett of Calgary were 12th. The four-man bobsled and womens bobsled events were set for Saturday.
