MILWAUKEE -- The Charlotte Hornets turned up the pressure on the Milwaukee Bucks from the outset of their season opener. Air Max 95 Wholesale .Nicholas Batum disrupted the Bucks on the perimeter. Center Roy Hibbert had his teammates backs in the paint.The defense helped Charlotte build a big early lead, and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist had 23 points and 14 rebounds in his return from a shoulder injury in the 107-96 victory over Milwaukee on Wednesday night.Early, they didnt get things easy, Hornets coach Steve Clifford said.They led by as many as 24 points in the third quarter before fending off a late charge from Milwaukee.The Bucks, who looked lackluster for much of the game, drew energy from Greg Monroes hustle in the paint and Jason Terrys floater that cut the lead to 93-85 with 5:08 left.But the Hornets held on down the stretch, getting a straightaway 3 from Marvin Williams for a 12-point lead with 3:21 left.They definitely outplayed us. We just cant let that happen (any) more, Bucks forward Jabari Parker said.Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks with 31 points, nine rebounds and five assists. The 6-foot-11 forward, now serving as Milwaukees primary ball-handler, showed he was worth the four-year $100 million contract extension he signed before training camp.Im not happy, we all wanted to start this season with a win ... so thats all I can think about, Antetokounmpo said.The Hornets pressed early, and tried to force the Bucks to find other ways to start the offense. The Hornets also had an effective wing defender in the 6-foot-8 Batum.Nic set the tone with his ball pressure, trying to disrupt the offense, which not many guys his size could do, Clifford said.Williams finished with 13 points and 10 rebounds for Charlotte, a playoff team a year ago following a 48-win season.TIP INSHornets: C Cody Zeller, who did not play the entire preseason because of a right knee injury, was 5 of 6 from the field for 15 points in 14 minutes. ... C-F Frank Kaminsky missed the game with a strained right foot. Kaminsky was a star in college at Wisconsin, where he helped lead the Badgers to two Final Four appearances.Bucks: Malcolm Brogdon played well in his NBA debut, serving as the point guard when Antetokounmpo and Matthew Dellavedova were off the court. Brogdon, a second-round draft pick, finished with eight points and five assists in 21 minutes.MOVIN ITThe Bucks couldnt keep up with Charlottes crisp ball movement in the first half, when the Hornets had 17 assists on 22 field goals to build a 15-point lead.Kemba Walker finished with eight assists, six coming in the first half.We just stuck to our game plan. We made all the right plays. We didnt turn the ball over too much, Walker said. We got a lot of stops, pushed the tempo, we made shots.MOVING ONCharlotte lost Jeremy Lin, Courtney Lee and Al Jefferson to free agency in the offseason, bringing in Marco Belinelli, Ramon Sessions and Hibbert.The new Hornets are fitting in quite nicely. Kidd-Gilchrist is back after playing just seven games last season.The 7-foot-2 Hibbert had a couple of rim-rocking dunks in the third quarter that helped build the 20-point lead.With Hibbert anchoring the middle defensively, Clifford likes the length and versatility provided by Batum and the 6-7 Kidd-Gilchrist.LONG SHOTSThe Bucks were haunted by familiar problems that carried over from last years 33-win squad.Milwaukee was just 1 of 9 from behind the 3-point arc in the first half. Interior defense was also an issue and the Hornets took advantage of the scrambling Bucks by moving the ball quickly around the court.Milwaukee finished 3 of 16 from behind the arc. Charlotte was 7 of 23 from 3-point range, but their baskets came in clutch situations.The timely 3s hurt. For us they shot 30 percent from the 3-point line. Well take that, but when youre behind, your margin of error, its very slim, coach Jason Kidd said.UP NEXTHornets: At Miami on Friday.Bucks: Host Nets on Saturday.---Follow Genaro Armas at: https://twitter.com/GArmasAP Cheap Air Max 95 Wholesale . DAmigo scored twice in regulation and added the shootout winner as the Toronto Marlies edged the San Antonio Rampage 5-4 in American Hockey League action. Nike Air Max 95 Sale . LUCIE, Fla. http://www.redohou.com/ . The Celtics closed out their first preseason under Stevens on Wednesday night with a 101-97 victory over the Brooklyn Nets, who rested a lot of their lineup including former Celtics Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. HOUSTON -- About the only thing that slowed down the sixth-ranked Houston Cougars on Saturday was bad weather that led to a 3 1/2-hour delay.The Cougars easily overcame the absence of injured quarterback Greg Ward Jr. as well as the marathon lightning delay for a 42-0 victory over Lamar.Im really proud of the entire team really for handling that kind of adversity, coach Tom Herman said. We train for that kind of chaos.With Ward on the sideline nursing an injured right shoulder, backup Kyle Postma ran 39 yards for a score in the first quarter in a game that lasted six hours, 18 minutes.The Cougars had three players top 100 yards rushing for the first time since 1974, and piled up 381 yards on the ground. Kevrin Justice had 111 yards and two touchdowns, freshman Mulbah Car added 109 yards and a score in his debut and Postma scrambled for a career-high 106 yards with two TDs.Dark clouds descended on the stadium soon after Postmas score, and a lightning strike forced the game to be suspended at 11:36 a.m. with 3:13 left in the first quarter.Multiple lightning strikes followed, pushing the game back again and again. It wasnt raining at the beginning of the delay, and fans remained in their seats despite a warning to move to the concourse. It was a festive atmosphere, with many fans chanting and dancing, and at one point doing the wave.But it began to rain at about 1:30 p.m. and chased all but a few fans out of their seats. By the time the game resumed at 3:12 p.m., the once mostly-full stands were dotted with many empty seats. The official time of the delay was three hours, 36 minutes.The Cougars passed the time during the delay receiving some extra coaching, listening to music and even dancing. They also had some chicken sandwiches delivered as lunchtime came and went with no end to the delay in sight.Everybody made the most of it, linebacker Steven Taylor said.It didnt take Houston (2-0) long to get going after the delay, and a touchdown dive by Justice made it 14-0 with less than a minute left in the first quarter.That score was the first of three straight touchdowns, which included a second score from Justice, which pushed the lead to 28-0 at halftime.We kkind of wore down, Lamar coach Ray Woodard said. Air Max 95 Cheap Mens. I was proud of our effort, but we just got outmanned today.The Cougars answered those who wondered if they would suffer a letdown after their huge win over then-No. 3 Oklahoma last week, or be looking past the FCS Cardinals (0-2) toward Thursdays American Athletic Conference opener at Cincinnati.Herman said that Ward would have played had Saturdays game been a conference game and that hed return against Cincinnati.He believes his team can be much better despite coasting to Saturdays win.To win a game 42-0 and still have that much work to do is a definite eye-opener for our guys, he said.THE TAKEAWAYLAMAR: The Cardinals should benefit from the experience of facing a top 10 team when they open Southland Conference play next week.HOUSTON: The Cougars did what they were supposed to do against a lesser opponent and were able to give some of their banged-up starters a little bit of a break with a quick turnaround.YES, THEYRE RELATEDIn case youre wondering, Lamar quarterback Carson Earp, who started but threw for just 14 yards while splitting time with Andrew Allen, is related to infamous Old West lawman Wyatt Earp.The senior and the man known for his part in the legendary battle at the O.K. Corral are distant cousins.The propensity for people to refer to quarterbacks as gunslingers seems a little silly when compared to the likes of Wyatt Earp, who was literally a gunslinger in the wild West.TOUGH DAYThe only area where Houston struggled on Saturday was in the kicking game. Ty Cummings was 12 for 12 in his career before missing field goals attempts from 31 and 25 yards against Lamar.POLL IMPLICATIONSThe Cougars should maintain their position in the poll after getting a lopsided win against a team they were supposed to beat.UP NEXTLAMAR: The Cardinals host Sam Houston State on Saturday.HOUSTON: The Cougars play at Cincinnati Thursday.LAST WORDIt was 511? It seemed like about 1,511, Woodard said about Houstons total yardage.---AP college football website: collegefootball.ap.org Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
