d ahead 90-72 in the fourth quarter. He added another to make it 94-74. "If they lost
Kansas City, MO ( - A Top-25 showdown is on tap at the Sprint Center on Saturday afternoon, as the 10th-ranked Kansas Jayhawks and 13th-ranked Utah Utes travel to Kansas City, to take part in the annual Kansas City Shootout. Bill Selfs Jayhawks have suffered just one defeat on the year, and that came at the hands of top-ranked Kentucky (72-40) back on Nov. 18. Since that humbling loss, the Jayhawks have reeled off six straight victories, including a 75-70 road win at Georgetown last time out. Larry Krystkowiaks Utes have followed the exact same blueprint, suffering their only loss of the season on Nov. 18 to nationally-ranked San Diego State (53-49) and putting together a six-game win streak since then. The Utes are coming off a 65-61 victory over instate rival BYU on Wednesday. This is just the second meeting between these two programs all-time. Kansas won the only previous matchup, a 79-68 decision in 1995, also in Kansas City. The Utes have really been impressive at both ends of the floor this season. The team enters this contest with a strong +21.3 scoring margin, averaging 78.6 ppg, while allowing just 57.4. Utah is one of the better shooting teams in the country, hitting on 51.6 percent from the floor, including 41.2 percent from behind the arc. The team lost some scoring punch in late November with a knee injury suffered by Jordan Loveridge (11.5 ppg), but others have stepped up and filled the void. Delon Wright has really shot the ball well at a .581 clip and paces the team with 15.4 ppg. Jakob Poeltl and Brandon Taylor are also sporting double-digit scoring averages at 11.3 and 10.3 ppg, respectively. Just a freshman, Poeltl has made an immediate impact on the boards as well, grabbing a team-best Despite committing 15 turnovers and shooting a dreadful 2-of-14 from 3-point range, Utah was still able to do enough in the second half to get past the Cougars. Wright was once again instrumental in the victory, posting a double- double with 16 points and 11 rebounds. No other Ute finished in double figures, although Kenneth Ogbe (9 pts) was just under the mark. The Jayhawks stood tall in their first true road test of the season, holding off Georgetown in a five-point victory. Brannen Greene was the biggest contributor in the victory, leading the team with 19 points in 18 minutes off the bench. Greene was a perfect 5-of-5 from behind the arc and 4-of-4 from the free-throw line against the Hoyas. Frank Mason III added 14 points to the cause, while Perry Ellis recorded a double-double with 13 points and 10 rebounds. Kansas hasnt put up huge offensive numbers this season, although the 70.1 ppg has usually been enough as the team enjoys a +6.5 scoring margin thus far. Ellis has been the most productive Jayhawk this season, averaging team-highs in both scoring (14.4 ppg) and rebounding (7.1 rpg). Mason (10.6 ppg) is a double-digit scoring threat as well, while Cliff Alexander (9.6 ppg) and Wayne Selden Jr. (9.3 ppg) fall just under that mark. Maillot Antoine Griezmann France . - The width of Alec Martinezs shin guard was the difference between the Los Angeles Kings and the Anaheim Ducks in their playoff series opener. Maillot Thomas Lemar . PAUL, Minn – The clock lingered for what seemed like an interminable two minutes and 51 seconds before Mark Fraser finally escaped to the bench during a wildly one-sided first period of an eventual loss to Boston. Cain departed in the fourth inning of a 10-5 loss to the Pirates on Thursday. X-rays on Cains bruised forearm were negative. He was hit when Sanchez led off the fourth with a groundout. Maillot Paul Pogba . So it was understandable if he was a little shaky early in his return to the Texas Rangers rotation. He spent most of the outing searching for his best stuff, but still managed to shut down the struggling Minnesota Twins offence. Maillot Blaise Matuidi . - The Minnesota Vikings have ruled Christian Ponder out for Sundays game at Baltimore, because the quarterback has not yet passed all of his post-concussion tests.PORTLAND, Ore. - Nicolas Batum had a simple question for his Portland teammates: "Why not us?" No other team has come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a playoff series. But the Trail Blazers took the first step Monday night by beating the San Antonio Spurs 103-92 to stave off elimination and narrow the Western Conference semifinal series to 3-1. "Why not us? No, its never been done before," Batum said. "We know its going to be tough. It wont be easy, especially against this team. The French forward had 14 points, 14 rebounds and eight assists and pestered fellow countryman Tony Parker all night. Damian Lillard had 25 points to lead the Blazers, who won their first second-round playoff game since a victory over Utah in the 2000 conference semifinals. "We had nothing to lose tonight. We had no pressure. It was do or die," Batum said. "So we just go out there and play." Portland held Parker to 14 points after he had scored 29 points or more in three of his last four playoff games. Coach Gregg Popovich sat Parker and Tim Duncan after Portland built a 20-point lead in the final quarter. The Spurs are looking to advance to the conference finals for the third straight season. Game 5 is Wednesday night in San Antonio. "The energy was weird tonight," Parker said. "You have to give a lot of credit to Portland. They played great. They came out of the gates and I thought Batum was great tonight. He gave them a big boost." The Blazers were the last team to take a series to seven games after dropping the first three. Portland rebounded in the first round against Dallas in 2003, but ultimately lost the deciding game in the first-round series. The Blazers have been hurt by the loss of backup point guard Mo Williams to a groin injury for the past two games. Williams provided both energy and points off the bench all season in relief of Lillard. Portland got just six points off the bench in Game 3, but Will Barton provided a spark with 17 points on Monday night. Barton became the first Blazer with 17 points and six rebounds off the bench in a playoff game since Briian Grant in 2000 against Utah.dddddddddddd "Any time you get a boost off the bench its always good for a momentum swing," San Antonios Danny Green said. "When he comes in and gets the crowd into it, they pretty much get it going, and it helped them a lot. " Coach Terry Stotts promised that the Blazers would play with pride in Game 4 and they did from the start. Lillards pull up jumper gave Portland a 14-8 lead. He extended it to 20-14 with a layup. But the Spurs answered with a 9-2 run and took a 24-23 lead on Patty Mills 3-pointer. Portland, which had only led twice in the previous three games, quickly reclaimed the lead and held on until Tiago Splitter tied it at 46 with a free throw. The Blazers had a 50-48 lead at the half. "I though with the way Nico (Batum) played, the game came a lot easier," Lillard said. "He was attacking, making plays. He was pushing the ball." Lillard opened the second half with a 3-pointer. Batum hit a 3 and added a free throw to push the lead to 69-61. Batum added another 3 before Thomas Robinsons dunk and Lillards 3 made it 77-63 to cap a 12-2 Portland run. Lillards layup put Portland ahead 90-72 in the fourth quarter. He added another to make it 94-74. "If they lost today it was a sweep, but theyve got pride and they played good," Manu Ginobili said. "They played the game more desperately than we did. We didnt bring the same emotions the first three games. The bottom line is they played better than us in every aspect of the game. Parker scored 29 points in San Antonios 118-103 Game 3 victory on Saturday night. The Spurs had routed the Blazers 116-92 in the series opener after their grueling seven-game series against the Mavericks, then built a 20-point lead and won Game 2, 114-97. NOTES: Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll watched the game sitting next to Paul Allen, the Microsoft co-founder who owns both the Super Bowl-winning Seahawks and the Blazers. ... It was Batums first double-double in the playoffs. ... It was Portlands first playoff victory against the Spurs since May 1, 1993, in the first round.
