HOUSTON - Heading into a game with the San Antonio Spurs, Houston Rockets coach Kevin McHale had his eye on a few matchups. Cheap Tyrann Mathieu Jersey . A specific one that caught his eye was getting Dwight Howard in the post.The plan worked.With San Antonio missing big bodies Tim Duncan, who was rested along with fellow veteran Manu Ginobili, and Tiago Splitter (right calf tightness), Howard dominated the interior from the opening tip, scoring 32 points and grabbing 16 rebounds in leading Houston to a 98-81 victory.We looked at some stuff (on tape) and we got him in the post, McHale said. I thought (Howard) rolled hard and got some late at the rim. He was really devastating on those high passes. Its important that he gets in a rhythm and plays. It doesnt matter who is out there playing for them, hes got to play well for us.The win runs Houstons record to a league best 6-0 while dropping San Antonios mark to 2-2.With no Duncan or Splitter inside Houston had a decided advantage down low and exploited it from the beginning, feeding Howard at every turn. Whether on the pick-and-roll, at the elbow, or on alley-oop passes, Howard was the target and had a double-double — 20 points and 12 rebounds — by halftime as he exploited a vulnerable Spurs interior defence where Matt Bonner, Jeff Ayers, and Aron Baynes struggled to keep up.We are a sum-of-the-parts team, Popovich said. We have to have all our parts to be at our best. We cant rely on one player. We have to do it as a group. If we have injuries, we need our full bench to continue to play at our best.When Howard was not scoring inside, James Harden filled the stat sheet, adding 20 points, six rebounds and six assists for the Rockets. While he had his share of points, Harden was clear after the game about the advantage of having a force inside.Its tough with the best big man in the league rolling down the paint, Harden said of Howard. Hes a lob target, and you have shooters around him. Its tough to guard it.As the Spurs struggled to keep Howard from gutting them in the middle, they had little consistency when they had the ball. They started the game sluggish, going scoreless in the first six minutes.While San Antonio rebounded and pulled to within 18-15 at the end of the first quarter, that was as close as the Spurs would get. The tough night finished with the defending NBA champs, who trailed by as many as 31, shooting just 34.4 per cent from the field.It was a bad night tonight and I couldnt hit a shot, Tony Parker, who finished with just six points, said. Defensively, we did OK, but we never got into an offensive rhythm.Cory Joseph led the Spurs with 18 points off the bench and Baynes had 12 points and 11 rebounds.TIP-INSSpurs: Marco Belinelli was an injury scratch due to a strained right groin and was replaced by Bonner. . San Antonio started 0-for-15 on 3-pointers, making their first with 7:02 to go in the third quarter, and finished 2 for 20 from beyond the arc.Rockets: Terrence Jones missed his second straight game with a leg contusion. . Patrick Beverley missed the game due to a strained hamstring and was replaced by Isaiah Canaan, who scored 12 points along with Jason Terrys 16 points. . Houston has now won six games over the Spurs dating to last season.WINNING BIGHouston has won each of its first six games by 10 points or more. According to Elias Sports Bureau, the Rockets are the first team to accomplish the feat since the 1985-86 Denver Nuggets.DEFENDING THE ARCHouston came into the game holding opponents to 29.1 per cent from beyond the arc. That number will improve after holding the Spurs to 2-for-20 shooting from 3-point range.UP NEXTSpurs: Host New Orleans on Saturday.Rockets: Host Golden State on Saturday. Cheap D.J. Reader Jersey . Team officials travelled to Los Angeles on Thursday night to meet with the free agent, a person with knowledge of the plans said. Cheap Whitney Mercilus Jersey .Currently no, Tatjana Haenni, FIFAs deputy director of the competitions division and head of womens competitions, said Tuesday in an interview from Ottawa.BERLIN -- Bayern Munich blitzed Wolfsburg with five goals in 17 minutes to come from a goal down and win 6-1 for a new Bundesliga record of 16 consecutive victories on Saturday. Bayern, which provisionally extended its lead in the table to 23 points, also stretched its Bundesliga record unbeaten run to 49 games and remains on course to complete the season without defeat. Second-place Borussia Dortmund, which plays at Freiburg on Sunday, visits Munich on April 12 in what is likely to be the defending champions toughest remaining challenge. Also, Klaas Jan Huntelaar scored a hat trick as Schalke beat Hoffenheim 4-0 and Borussia Moenchengladbach lost 2-1 at home to Augsburg. Stuttgart ended its eight-game losing streak but could draw only 2-2 at home with bottom side Eintracht Braunschweig, injury-hit Hamburger SV drew 1-1 at home with fellow relegation candidate Eintracht Frankfurt, and Bayer Leverkusen remains without a win in six games across all competitions after drawing 1-1 at Hannover. Werder Bremen won 2-0 at Nuremberg, through a Franco di Santo volley and deflected shot from Philipp Bargfrede in each half. Aaron Hunt was awarded a penalty after Bargfrede scored, but the Bremen captain informed the referee he wasnt fouled and the decision was reversed. Nurembergs Hiroshi Kiyotake displayed a similar gesture of fair play in the first half. Wolfsburg started brightly, pressuring Bayern and disrupting the visitors passing game. Pep Guardiolas side managed to turn the game around only after Thiago Alcantara and former Wolfsburg striker Mario Mandzukic came on early in the second half, as Bayern claimed its 22nd win from 24 games. "For 50, 60 minutes we displayed outstanding football. We had Bayern swaying," Wolfsburg coach Dieter Hecking said. "But after the third goal it was like someone pulled the plug. Then the enthusiasm and willingness to run was gone." Brazilian defender Naldo gave Wolfsburg a deserved lead in the 17th minute. Xherdan Shaqiri equalized in a goalmouth scramble after a corner in the 26th. Patrick Ochs twice cleared off the line from David Alaba, and Shaqiri bundled the reebound over the line. Cheap Duke Ejiofor Jersey. The home side remained strong, however, prompting the introduction of Mandzukic and Thiago. The latter had an immediate effect, playing a superb pass for Thomas Mueller to run through and score in the 63rd. Mandzukic shot to the corner three minutes later, Arjen Robben set up Franck Ribery in the 71st, Mueller claimed his second in the 78th, and then set up Mandzukic for the Croats league-leading 16th goal of the season two minutes later. Guardiola opted to rest Mario Goetze with a view to Tuesdays visit of Arsenal in the Champions League. Ribery was playing his first game for Bayern since a minor operation on his buttock, while Mueller was back after a hamstring injury. Schalke bounced back from crushing defeats to Bayern and Real Madrid by drawing level on points with third-place Leverkusen. "We wanted to show a reaction," Schalke coach Jens Keller said. Huntelaar opened the scoring in the sixth, and scored again with a fine finish inside the far post in the 29th, set up by Julian Draxler. The Dutchman should have completed his hat trick from the penalty spot in the 31st, but shot weakly and Koen Casteels easily gathered. Kevin-Prince Boateng cut the ball back for Chinedu Obasi to make it 3-0 in the 55th, and Draxler did brilliantly to help Huntelaar complete his hat trick in the 79th. Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno saved his side in the draw with Hannover by denying Szabolcs Husztis penalty attempt in the fifth. "I trusted my instincts," Leno said after his fifth save from six penalties this season. "It certainly wasnt an exhilarating game from us. You could feel the lack of confidence." Stuttgart coach Thomas Schneider will have to wait to learn his fate after failing to claim a win against Braunschweig. "Im not anybody to run away," said Schneider, whose side had previously lost eight in a row. It could have been nine. Hannovers Vedad Ibisevic had the chance to make it 3-1 but Daniel Davari saved his penalty. Ermin Bicakcic equalized against his former side to keep Braunschweigs hopes of avoiding the drop alive. Cheap Brewers Jerseys Cheap Twins Jerseys Cheap Mets Jerseys Cheap Yankees Jerseys Cheap Athletics JerseysCheap Phillies Jerseys Cheap Pirates Jerseys Cheap Padres Jerseys Cheap Giants Jerseys Cheap Mariners Jerseys Cheap Cardinals Jerseys Cheap Rays Jerseys Cheap Rangers Jerseys Cheap Blue Jays Jerseys Cheap Nationals Jerseys ' ' '
