." A letter from co-owner Michael Gearon J

Sacramento, CA (SportsNetwork. Andre Silva Portugal Jersey .com) - DeMarcus Cousins led the way with 29 points and 14 rebounds as the Sacramento Kings battled back in the fourth quarter to take a 108-101 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday. Rudy Gay finished with 24 points and six assists, Ben McLemore had 23 points and eight boards and Darren Collison scored 19 for the Kings, who ended a five-game skid and won for the first time under interim head coach Tyrone Corbin. Nick Young had 26 points and Kobe Bryant supplied 25 points on a poor 8-of-30 shooting display for the Lakers, who have dropped their last three contests. Carlos Boozers floater cut the deficit to 83-82 early in the fourth and ended a span of 8:36 without a Los Angeles field goal. Young drained consecutive treys and hit a free throw to give the Lakers an 89-83 lead with 8:03 remaining. The Kings had an answer, however, scoring 16 of the next 18 points. Cousins tip-in gave them the lead, then McLemores triple and alley-oop made it a 99-91 game with 4:02 to play. Young made a pair of free throws to cut the deficit to six points with under three minutes to play, but Bryants charge gave the ball back to the Kings, who cruised to the win after Gays trey with 2:10 left. Cousins scored the first eight points of a 10-0 run that ended with a McLemore jumper to give the Kings a 15-7 lead with 6:04 to play in the opening stanza. The Lakers, however, ended the first on an 11-4 run that whittled the deficit to 26-23 thanks to five points from Bryant. Young knocked down a 3-pointer to ignite a 7-0 burst and Jeremy Lins layup gave Los Angeles a 30-29 edge less than three minutes into the second. Los Angeles closed out the first half, which featured seven lead changes, on a 9-1 spurt to take a 60-52 lead into the break. Bryant continued to knock down shots as he supplied six of the Lakers eight straight points, making it a 79-66 game with 6:11 to play in the third. Game Notes The Kings also ended a four-game skid at home ... Bryant had nine of Los Angeles 16 turnovers ... The Kings outscored the Lakers on the fast break, 23-9, and also owned a 40-36 margin in the paint ... Sacramentos bench contributed just 11 points in the victory. Bruno Alves Portugal Jersey . Scotlands Greg Laidlaw made one of two penalty kicks and all three conversions, and Stuart Hogg added a try in the second half. "The most important thing to come out of the game is that we did not get scored against," Laidlaw said. Raphael Guerreiro Portugal Jersey . PAUL, Minn. http://www.soccerportugalnationalshop.u … al-Jersey/ . -- Canadas Justin Shin shot an 8-under 64 on Thursday on PGA Wests Nicklaus Tournament Course to take the first-round lead in the Web. ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Hawks cancelled a scheduled meeting between their CEO and city civil rights leaders Wednesday, prompting one of the groups leaders to say his community was greatly offended. The Rev. Markel Hutchins said the meeting with CEO Steve Koonin was called off "at the last minute." He later said he received a call from Hawks spokesman Garin Narain on Tuesday night asking the appointment be postponed. Hutchins said he needed to hear that request from Koonin, and because Koonin didnt personally cancel the meeting, the group of 12 civil rights leaders showed up as planned. When they entered Philips Arena and were told there would be no meeting, Hutchins and the other leaders said they were insulted. "The entire civil rights community, locally and nationally, have been offended, the likes of which we have not seen in this community in decades," Hutchins said. The group asked for the meeting to discuss what Hutchins said was the Hawks "disrespect for people of colour." The request followed racially charged comments by Hawks co-owner Bruce Levenson and general manager Danny Ferry. In a statement Wednesday, the Hawks asked for patience from the community and said they want to reschedule the meeting. "Koonin postponed todays meeting last night," the Hawks statement said. "This conversation is a priority for us. We are committed to having this meeting and will work with community leaders to reschedule as soon as possible. We ask our community to work with us, be patient with us, and help us heal." The Hawks did not say why the meeting was cancelled. Levenson said Sunday he will sell his majority share of the team. Koonin said Tuesday Ferry has been punished but wont be fired. Hutchins said when he arranged the meeting with Koonin on Monday night, he made it clear the group wanted Ferry to lose his job. "Perhaps one of the reasons why they cancelled the meeting is we made it very clear we were going to demand in our conversations that Danny Ferry be fired or resign," Hutchins said. "There is no way that a man who uses the kind of language and holds the kind of sentiments that hhe does should be the general manager of the basketball team in the home of Dr. Bernardo Silva Jersey. Martin Luther King Jr. and the cradle of the civil rights movement." Others also have called for Ferry to be fired. Former NBA great Magic Johnson said late Tuesday on his Twitter feed "Atlanta Hawks GM Danny Ferry should step down after making racist statements about NBA player Luol Deng." Deng and Ferry are former Duke players under Mike Krzyzewski, who is coaching the U.S. team at the World Cup. Krzyzewski said he couldnt comment on the controversy involving his former players because he hasnt followed the news. Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau, serving as an assistant on the U.S. team, defended Deng on Wednesday. "Ive never been around a better person," Thibodeau said. "Hes not only a great basketball player, hes an even better person. Ill stand by Luol any day. Hes good. Hes done a lot of great things in the community. Hes a great human being. Hes a very humble guy. He has a lot of integrity. I cant say enough good things about him. ... It was a privilege for me to be his coach." Thibodeau said he "cant imagine" why Ferry made the statements. Ferry made inflammatory comments about Deng in a conference call with the Hawks ownership group in June when the team pursued Deng as a free agent. Ferry described Deng as someone who "has a little African in him." Deng, who was born in what is now South Sudan, now plays for the Miami Heat. He responded to Ferrys comment on Tuesday by saying, "Im proud to say I actually have a lot of African in me, not just a little." A letter from co-owner Michael Gearon Jr. to Levenson recommended that Ferry resign or be fired. Gearon said Ferry made that description of Deng to the teams ownership group. Gearons June 12 letter to Levenson said Ferry went on to say, "Not in a bad way, but hes like a guy who would have a nice store out front and sell you counterfeit stuff out of the back." Added Gearon: "Ferry completed the racial slur by describing the player (and impliedly all persons of African descent) as a two-faced liar and cheat."
