CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Cavaliers have been waiting for Andrew Bynum to have a breakout performance. Cardinals Lou Brock Jersey . The 7-footer came through in a 97-93 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Saturday night. Bynum made the go-ahead basket with 3:35 left and had his best all-around game of the season with 20 points, five blocked shots and 10 rebounds in 30 minutes. "It felt good," Bynum said. "I wont lie to you." Bynum said earlier in the season he was contemplating retirement as he attempts a comeback from surgery on both knees. The injuries sidelined him for all of last season in Philadelphia and he admitted he was only a shell of himself on the court. "Tonight we saw a little bit of what Andrew is capable of bringing to the table," Cavaliers coach Mike Brown said. Bynum hopes Saturdays performance is a sign of something positive for himself and the team. "I was able to have a little more bounce, a little more jumping ability," he said. "I hope my knees feel good after this." Bynum and Dion Waiters each scored 20 points, and the Cavaliers held off a late rally by Chicago. Cleveland, which had lost five straight and eight of nine, built a 12-point lead in fourth quarter, but the Bulls rallied for an 88-87 edge on Tony Snells basket with 3:59 remaining. Bynum, who was 8 of 14 from the field, hit a 5-footer to put Cleveland ahead for good and Kyrie Irving scored after stealing the ball from Kirk Hinrich. Waiters converted another turnover into a layup to put the Cavaliers ahead 93-88 with 2:09 to play. Waiters scored again to give Cleveland a seven-point lead, but Luol Dengs 3-pointer cut the lead to 95-91. Carlos Boozers basket with 40 seconds left trimmed it to 95-93. Following a miss by Bynum, the Bulls called timeout with 17 seconds remaining. Deng drove to the basket but his shot rolled off the rim and the Bulls missed three tip-in attempts. Tristan Thompson grabbed the rebound and made two free throws with 9 seconds remaining sealed the win. Irving, who added 19 points for Cleveland, knows how important Bynum can be to the team. "When you have someone you can throw it down to, you know he can get his shot when he wants," Irving said. "He draws so much attention. It opens up a lot of opportunities for all of us." Deng scored 27 points for the Bulls, who finished 1-5 on their road trip in which they lost point guard Derrick Rose for the season with a knee injury. "This was the end of a long trip," Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said. "Weve got to gather ourselves quickly now because we dont have much time before we play again." The Bulls played their fourth game without Rose, who had surgery for a torn meniscus in his right knee last week after getting hurt Nov. 22 in Portland. Chicago also was blown out by 39 points by the Los Angeles Clippers and lost in overtime to Utah during the trip. The Bulls ended a four-game losing streak with Fridays 99-79 win at Detroit. "We learned a lot on the road, but weve got to do better," said forward Taj Gibson. "Just because were coming home doesnt mean anything. Teams tend to get a chip on their shoulder when they come into Chicago, so we have to be ready." Cleveland led by five points at halftime, but started the third period with a 15-5 run to lead 71-56 midway through the quarter. Chicago had won 12 of its last 13 games against Cleveland, including a 96-81 home victory on Nov. 11, but the Cavaliers scored the games first seven points, forcing Thibodeau to use a 20-second timeout at the 10:38 mark. The Cavaliers scored 27 points and were 11 of 18 from the field in the first quarter after being held to 10 points in the opening period Friday in a 103-86 loss at Boston. Snell and Gibson each scored 18 points for Chicago. NOTES: Bynum blocked consecutive shots on the same possession by Joakim Noah in the first quarter. ... Thibodeau was given a technical foul by official Nick Buchert in the second quarter. ... Cavaliers G C.J. Miles, who missed four games with a pulled right calf, returned to Clevelands starting lineup and scored six points. ... Cleveland F Earl Clark (flu) was inactive. ... Bulls G Jimmy Butler (right toe) is travelling with the team, but theres no timetable for his return. ... Chicago plays its first home game since Nov. 18 on Monday against New Orleans, the first of four straight games at the United Center. ... The Cavaliers dont play again until Wednesday when Denver visits. Cardinals Jordan Hicks Jersey . The injury could land Machado on the 15-day disabled list, but its not as serious as it looked on Monday night, when the third baseman crumpled in a heap at the plate after taking an awkward swing in a game against the New York Yankees. Cardinals Marcell Ozuna Jersey . If Vettel wins at Suzuka on Sunday, and his nearest rival Fernando Alonso finishes worse than eighth, the German driver will join his compatriot Michael Schumacher and Argentine Juan-Manuel Fangio as the only men to win four consecutive titles. http://www.cheapcardinalsjerseysauthentic.com/ . But Paul Osbaldiston, Hamiltons assistant special teams and kicking coach, said the team still relished the championship game workout.Got a question on rule clarification, comments on rule enforcements or some memorable NHL stories? Kerry wants to answer your emails at cmonref@tsn.ca. Hi Kerry, Ive been a huge fan of you and your hair for as long as I can remember. Loved your book and the insights you give in your columns. In regards to the disputed goal by the Red Wings during their game versus the Kings on Saturday, can you provide some insight as to how the on ice officials made their determination?From what Ive read, there seems to be two different thoughts on why a goal was allowed with a puck that was clearly out of play. One, none of the on ice officials saw the puck clearly hit the safety netting so the call on the ice stands, a goal. Two, on ice official(s) did see the puck hit the safety net, but as none of them blew the play dead (or intended to), the play was still active and whether or not they saw it hit the net is irrelevant. The call on the ice stands as the play was active and cant be overruled. Both reasons center around the fact that no video review was allowed so the call on the ice had to stand. In an age where basic things like boundary violations can easily be determined with video review, when is the NHL going to change things to expand video review for goals? Thanks for your great work and insights. Sincerely,Kurt JordanEncinitas, CA Kurt: To answer your first question, you can take it to the bank when I tell you that none of the four officials on the ice saw the puck strike the fan-friendly protective netting above the end zone glass. If one of the crew had witnessed the puck leave the playing surface (or even came to that conclusion through self-reflection) a goal would have subsequently been disallowed in spite of the fact that the whistle had not blown. The officials intent to blow the whistle would prevail to ensure that the correct call was made. When the play occurred in real time, I was bombarded with questions on Twitter as to how four officials can possibly miss this call. I hope you will understand there are times when it is next to impossible to track the puck at ice level. The perfect storm resulted on this play after Niklas Kronwalls slapper was blocked by Jarret Stoll causing the puck to rocket into the upper atmosphere of the Joe. Referee Rob Martell was appropriately focused on Todd Bertuzzi and the action in and around Jonathan Quick. The other three officials attempted to locate the puck in its flight path. Please dont suggest that the whistle should have immediately blown because these three officials lost sight of the puck. A reasonable time frame is allowed to make sure the puck is either frozen or out of play in an effort to avoid a premature whistle. The very best angle to track and detect the puck hitting the protective net was enjoyed by Kings defenceman Drew Doughty as he approached the goal line, facing the end boards and looking in an upward stare. None of the Officials shared Doughtys perspective! The next visual connection with the puck that any of the offficials possibly had was when it was tracking downward just prior to striking Jonathan Quick on the numbers and deflected directly into the net. Cheap Throwback Cardinals Jerseys. Drew Doughty immediately appealed to referee Martell and provided the evidence he had witnessed. Doughtys information would have been communicated in the conference held at the Referee crease. The gut wrenching truth these guys wrestled with was that none of them had seen the puck strike the protective netting to rule the play dead. The Officials were helpless to do anything other than allow the goal to stand since the puck clearly enter the net off the back of Quick. With an understanding of what took place I cant fault the Officials one bit. The blame rests clearly on the current video review process and the Hockey Operations Department and personnel that make exclusive "officiating decisions" on a nightly basis in the Situation Room in Toronto. Kurt, you asked when is the NHL going to change things to expand video review for goals? I cant understand why the general managers have not insisted on revamping the review process. It is surely time for a complete overhaul! I point out Rule 38.4 (viii) which says, "The video review process shall be permitted to assist the referees in determining the legitimacy of all potential goals (e.g. to ensure they are "good hockey goals"). For example (but not limited to), pucks that enter the net by going though the net messing, pucks that enter the net from underneath the net frame, pucks that enter the net undetected by the referee, etc." I would hope that an undetected puck that leaves the playing surface (hitting protective netting out of play) and then directly results in the puck entering the net would fall under that broad "ETC" in the rule to permit video review to "assist the referees" in determining the legitimacy of the goal. This was well beyond the parameters of a "good hockey goal!" There was absolutely zero "assistance" provided from the Situation Room as the officials huddled on the ice in an attempt to make a correct determination. I suspect the officials were dying a thousand deaths on the ice and the replay clearly demonstrates that a telephone call was not initiated by the Toronto Situation Room to "assist the referees." Major League Baseball announced last Thursday (link) at the Owners Meetings their unanimous decision to fund and expand instant replay for the 2014 season. The key points for quick reference are including the managers challenge and most importantly that off-site decisions will be conducted at the Replay Command Center in New York which will become their Situation Room. Two additional four-man umpire crews will be hired and rotated through New York to review video feeds. The replay umpires decision in New York will be final. Take a lesson NHL; its time to make a positive change with regard to video review. Perhaps Los Angeles Kings general manager Dean Lombardi might agree. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
