Former Houston Rockets coach Kevin McHale isnt sure James Harden can morph into a full-time point guard.Harden is moving into the role under new coach Mike DAntoni, and while he did lead shooting guards with a touch rate of 85.1 percent last season, McHale wonders whether Harden can become a facilitator first.You are who you are a lot of times, McHale, who will analyze games for TNT this season, said during a Tuesday conference call with reporters. Can you change and be a facilitator first? I dont know. Kevin Garnett, a guy I go way, way back with -- Kevin Garnett was always a pass-first player. He was a pass-first player his first day of practice when he was with the Minnesota Timberwolves.James is a scorer, and at the end of the day, you do fall back on what you are. James is a scorer at heart. Can you change that? ... Can you be something that youre really not for an entire 82-game season? Hes a great facilitator, great passer, and he has great vision -- he really is a scorer as a basketball player.McHale said Harden dominated the ball when he coached the Rockets, moving traditional point guard Patrick Beverley to shooting guard at times. Beverleys touch rate was 55.8 percent last season, compared to Hardens 85.1.Those numbers are expected to increase under DAntonis up-tempo offense, which calls for spacing for outside shooting, the ability to push the pace and high pick-and-rolls.Grant Hill played one season under DAntoni in Phoenix during the 2007-08 season, when the?Suns?averaged 110.1 points per game -- third best in the league.Hill, along with McHale, doesnt see much difference in what Harden did in the past. However, there are some concerns about whether Harden can operate the offense efficiently.Now you have a guy in Harden, he wants to score and hes great at it, and I know he had seven-plus assists last year, Hill said. But its going to be interesting. The jury is still out. Im not sure how its all going to work. I think he will put up great numbers, and his numbers may even be better ... if thats possible from last year. In terms of how the team plays, how they play together, how they jell, Im not entirely sure the style of play -- the position that Harden is in -- is going to translate to success with the team.In three preseason games, Harden has averaged a league-leading 12 assists per game and is second in scoring at 23.3 points.Houston has won all three of those preseason games, with its fourth contest coming Wednesday against New Orleans. Curry 1 Lux Mid Leather . -- Sergey Tolchinksy scored his second goal of the game 3:56 into overtime as the Sault Ste. Under Armour Scorpio For Sale .J. -- New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz will miss the rest of the season after having surgery on his left knee. http://www.currybasketballshoessale.com/ua-men-s-under-armour-scorpio-running-shoes-blue-grey-black.html . On Mar. 16, coming off a "fight of the year" performance at UFC 154 the previous November, St-Pierre faced Nick Diaz at UFC 158 in what would be his eighth defence of the welterweight title. Using his superior athleticism, St-Pierre cruised to a five round, unanimous decision victory setting up a much-anticipated title defence against number one contender Johny Hendricks. UA Mens Under Armour Phenom Proto Training Shoes Black/White . -- Linebacker Myles Jack ran for four touchdowns, defensive end Cassius Marsh caught a scoring pass, and No. Curry 2 Low Black . They reached the 100-point plateau for the fourth time in five games, bested the visiting Trail Blazers by 34 in the paint and scored 19 of the final 25 points in regulation. ST. LOUIS -- Jaime Garcia said all along there was no reason to panic.Matt Holliday drove in three runs, Garcia threw eight solid innings and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Milwaukee Brewers 7-1 on Friday night.The Cardinals ended a seven-game home losing streak, their longest since Aug. 2-15, 1983.

He struck out six and walked four. He also beat Milwaukee 7-0 with a complete-game one-hitter on April 14.He was his typical self, Milwaukee infielder Scooter Gennett said. Hes a different type of pitcher. Everything he throws looks the same up there. Its not overpowering, its not crazy movement going on. Everything starts in a general area and moves in a lot of different ways.Rookie shortstop Aledmys Diaz had two hits and reached base three times. He recorded 11 assists, the most by a St. Louis rookie since Stu Martin had 11 assists at second base on June 6, 1936.Diaz missed the previous three games after fouling a pitch off the area around his right eye on Monday. The eye was still red, but the swelling had gone down, so he felt OK to play.With Jaime youve got to be ready, hes a great sinkerball guy, Diaz said. I was ready to go.Garcia was appreciative of Diazs effort.He played pretty well behind me with one eye, Garcia said.Chris Carter hit his 20th homer of the season for the Brewers in the second inning.Holliday highlighted a five-run outburst in the fourth with a two-run single. Yadier Molina, Garcia and Matt Carpenter also drove in runs in thhe inning.ddddddddddddMilwaukee starter Matt Garza (1-1) gave up seven runs, four earned, in 5 2/3 innings.

My stuff is getting crisper and Im hitting my spots more often, throwing more strikes.Molina had two hits and sits at 1,499 for his career.St. Louis manager Mike Matheny, like Garcia, remained calm during the home-field losing skid.Weve won at home and well win a lot more at home, Matheny said. Hopefully, now we can roll off quite a few in a row.FULL OF MOSSSt. Louis OF Brandon Moss led the major leagues with a .792 slugging percentage in June.
