Post at the bottom of the league. There was another pos
Milwaukee, WI ( - Markieff Morris finished with 26 points and 10 rebounds and the Phoenix Suns opened a four-game road trip on a winning note with a 102-96 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks. Isaiah Thomas donated 19 points off the bench, Goran Dragic added 16 and the Suns won their third straight despite turning it over 20 times. Brandon Knight paced the Bucks with 26 points, and Giannis Antetokounmpo totaled 16 with 12 rebounds in Milwaukees fourth straight home loss. We were in the game. We had an opportunity against one of the hottest teams in the league and we just couldnt get the ball to bounce our way, Bucks head coach Jason Kidd said. The Suns scored 12 of the first 16 points of the fourth quarter to take an 83-76 lead and stayed in front the rest of the way. Khris Middleton, whose buzzer-beating 3-pointer beat the Suns back on Dec. 15, hit from deep with under two minutes left to pull the Bucks within 94-92, Phoenix, however, answered with the next six points to cement the win. Dragic drove left for two, Morris drained a straightaway 3 the next time down, and Thomas went 1-for-2 at the foul line in the final minute. We needed to make big plays. Markieff made a big three there and Goran hit a big shot, Suns coach Jeff Hornacek said. There were seven leads changes in the opening five minutes and none the remainder of an ugly first half. The Bucks led 21-15 heading to the second quarter and 44-43 at halftime. Both teams combined for 25 turnovers and 3-of-23 (13 percent) shooting from 3-point range. A dunk-filled third quarter ended with the Bucks holding a 72-71 edge. Game Notes Phoenix has won nine of 11 overall and has scored 100-plus points in nine straight games ... Suns center Alex Len totaled nine points, eight rebounds and five blocks in 24 minutes ... The Bucks visit the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday ... Milwaukee shot 3-of-20 from the perimeter ...

Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic . -- Cordell Cato scored his first goal of the season and the San Jose Earthquakes survived a full half playing a man down to beat FC Dallas 2-1 Saturday night.MILAN, Italy -- Fernando Llorente scored a stoppage-time winner to help Juventus snatch a 1-0 win over Udinese and stretch its lead at the top of the Italian league to three points after Roma drew 1-1 at Atalanta. Roma also needed a late goal as Kevin Strootman scored in the final minute to preserve the teams unbeaten record. Mario Balotellis free kick helped AC Milan beat Catania 3-1 for its first win in six league matches, while a last-minute equalizer saw Sampdoria earn a 1-1 draw at Inter Milan, in front of new Nerazzurri President Erick Thohir. Elsewhere, Cagliari came back from two goals down to draw 2-2 against Sassuolo and Chievo Verona beat Livorno 3-0. Juventus dominated possession, but it was Udinese which had the best opportunities and home goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon pulled off a three stunning saves to deny Antonio di Natale twice and Andrea Lazzari once. Defender Stephan Lichtsteiner returned after almost two months out with an injury and he was instrumental in the Juventus goal flicking on a cross for Llorente to head past the motionless Zeljko Brkic. Llorente had almost scored moments earlier but saw his header cleared off the line by Udinese defender Allan. Kickoff had been brought forward to allow more than 12,000 children to fill the stands behind each goal, replacing the ultras which had been banned for insulting territorial chants against Napoli. It was Juves sixth successive league victory without conceding a goal. "We have to continue like this," Juventus coach Antonio Conte said. "We have 12 wins, a draw and a defeat. Thats very important but we mustnt sit back on our successes. "We were good today and lucky. We played well and showed that we are doing well physically, despite playing three games in a week. Buffon was good today, but Brkick was exceptional." Key playmaker Andrea Pirlo limped off after 13 minutes with a knee injury. Earlier, Roma was held to its fourth successive draw. Atalanta, which had hit the post in the first half, took the lead seven minutes after halftime when Davide Brivio sent a free kick under the wall and into the bottom right corner, although Roma goalkeeper Morgan De Sanctis was partly at fault as he misjudged the ball. United States forward Michael Bradley thought he had levelled in the 76th but his header was harshly ruled out for offside. Atalanta goalkeeper Andrea Consigli made several good saves, but could do nothing when Adem Ljajic crossed for Kevin Strootman to tap in from six yards. There was also a last-gasp leveler at San SSiro, where Thohir was watching his first match since being elected president last month.dddddddddddd Inter captain Javier Zanetti made his first start since snapping his Achilles tendon in April. Inter took the lead in the 18th when Ricardo Alvarez worked his way through on the left of the area before rolling across for Fredy Guarin to lash in under the bar. Guarin almost doubled his tally seven minutes after the interval but his effort crashed off the post. Shortly afterwards Sampdoria striker Nicola Pozzis effort was ruled out for offside. Substitute Renan levelled in the final minute, with a powerful shot from distance, just three minutes after coming off the bench. "This was our worst performance of the season," Inter coach Walter Mazzarri said. "We went too deep after going 1-0 up and we didnt even start well. Too many were under par and Sampdoria deserved the draw. "I didnt like this Inter. We should never let our guard down." In the lunchtime kickoff, Milan dominated possession but it was Catania that took the lead in the 13th against the run of play as poor defending eventually saw Lucas Castros effort deflected over stand-in goalkeeper Gabriel. The visitors levelled six minutes later when Riccardo Montolivo volleyed Urby Emanuelsons cross into the back of the net. Balotelli had gone six matches in all competitions without a goal before Tuesdays 3-0 win at Celtic, but he was involved in most Milan moves and fired his side in front shortly after the hour mark with a low free kick. Moments later Catania were down to 10 men when Panagiotis Tachtsidis was harshly shown a straight red for a challenge on Balotelli. Kaka sealed the match nine minutes from time, bursting into the box and firing into the roof of the net from a tight angle to score for the third successive match. It was his 99th Milan goal. Milan moved provisionally level with eighth-placed Lazio. Catania remains at the bottom of the league. There was another positive for Milan as Stephan El Shaarawy made his return from injury, coming on in the 74th for his first appearance in three months. Balotelli was replaced seven minutes from time after getting into a heated argument with Catania defender Nicolas Spolli, whom he accused of racism. "I didnt hear anything, so I cant judge," Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri said. "I took Mario off only because I saw he was a bit tired and had taken some knocks. There are so many skirmishes on the pitch, in any match, whats important is to stay calm."
