AUBURN HILLS, Mich. Authentic Marc Staal Jersey . -- Eric Gordon drove through the lane, and his floater gave New Orleans the lead with 1.9 seconds left. Then, remarkably, the Pelicans never really had to go back and defend. Instead of calling a timeout, Detroit inbounded the ball, and when Brandon Jennings missed a shot from near midcourt, New Orleans had a 103-101 victory over the Pistons on Friday night. "Thats on them," Gordon said. "Well take the win." Detroit lost even after a 30-4 run in the third quarter put the Pistons ahead 78-62. New Orleans reeled off the next nine points to pull within striking distance. The Pelicans took a 99-98 lead when Anthony Davis was credited with a tip-in, and it was 101-98 after Anthony Morrows two free throws with 30.8 seconds left. Detroits Rodney Stuckey drew a foul with 27.4 seconds left. He made the first free throw and missed the second, but New Orleans couldnt come up with the rebound. Jennings missed a 3-pointer, but Josh Smith rebounded and made a layup to tie it at 101 with 19 seconds to play. Gordon patiently ran the clock down, spun past rookie Kentavious Caldwell-Pope near the free throw line and finished at the basket with a high floater. "It was for me to get it up top, one on one," Gordon said. "Its all about making that last judgment, and trying to get a good shot." After Jennings final miss, Detroit coach Maurice Cheeks stood near his bench yelling for a timeout. Too late. "I tried to call a timeout," Cheeks said. "That timeout is on me." Detroit wasted a 28-point performance from Jennings and 21 points and 20 rebounds from Andre Drummond. Morrow scored 21 points for New Orleans, which won for only the second time in 11 games. Morrow had been sick and hadnt played in more than a week. "Being sick and kind of being out of the rotation -- just got to fight through it," Morrow said. "Got to be a professional." The Pelicans were without Jrue Holiday, Ryan Anderson, Jason Smith and Tyreke Evans because of injuries Friday. Jennings scored 18 points in the third quarter. New Orleans led 58-48 early in the second half after a dunk by Alexis Ajinca. The Pistons scored the next 18 points and kept pouring it on for much of the quarter, with Jennings drawing fouls and breezing in for layups. The Pistons capped their 18-0 run in the third with five points on one trip down the court. Smith scored while being fouled, and although he missed the free throw, Detroit came up with the ball and Jennings connected from way behind the 3-point line to make it 66-58. Detroit spent more than half the quarter in the bonus. Jennings made two free throws to make it 68-60, then quickly stole the ball and found Caldwell-Pope for a dunk. "Obviously, our third quarter is one of the worst third quarters we have had," Pelicans coach Monty Williams said. "The NBA is a game where there is only so long that you can come back and the 3-point ball kind of allows you to do that." It was 80-71 after three quarters. New Orleans got another scare with 6:19 to play in the fourth when Davis fell hard under the basket and appeared to hurt his tailbone. But he was able to stay in the game. Davis finished with 14 points. Gordon and Austin Rivers had 15 each, helping the Pelicans rally for the win. "We just make poor decisions down the stretch of the game sometimes and we have to get better at it," Drummond said. "Nip that in the bud and try to finish games up." NOTES: Davis was the top pick in the 2012 draft. Drummond went ninth. ... New Orleans shot 73 per cent from the field in the second quarter and led 54-48 at halftime. ... Holiday was out with a right leg injury, Anderson with a herniated disc, Smith with a right knee problem and Evans because of an illness. Authentic Alexandar Georgiev Jersey .

As the Winnipeg Blue Bombers opened their main training camp Sunday, Kuale is one of the newcomers brought in to bolster a sagging defence that ranked overall where the Bombers finished 2013, in the CFL cellar with a league high 585 points against. GUELPH, Ont. -- With the Hamilton Tiger-Cats season hanging in the balance, rookie quarterback Dan LeFevour delivered. LeFevours two-yard TD run in overtime rallied Hamilton to a thrilling 19-16 win over the Montreal Alouettes in the East Division semifinal Sunday. The six-foot-three, 230-pound LeFevour handled the ball on six of Hamiltons eight snaps in overtime after Montreal went ahead 16-13 on Sean Whytes 34-yard field goal. All were runs -- including two successful third-down gambles -- and an 11-yard scamper that took the Ticats to the Alouettes two-yard line to set up LeFevours game-winning TD. LeFevours touchdown secured Hamiltons first home playoff win since 01 and prompted teammates to hoist him on to their shoulders, something the former Central Michigan star was uncomfortable with. "I was telling them to put me down actually," the humble LeFevour said. "This is a team game, shoot, the defence carried us all the way into the fourth quarter. Hank had a great drive going into the wind. "I really feel I was a small piece . . . everyone put in their two cents today." Ticats head coach Kent Austin had no hesitation putting Hamiltons season in a rookies hands. "The package Dan runs is suited for Dan," he said. "When you play a defence like this you have to play 12-man football on offence and by that I mean you have to add your quarterback to the run game otherwise you play 11 against 12. "Dan gives us the ability to run those packages. Hes just a highly competitive, very focused, very unselfish quarterback that is a winner." The weather was the big story of the game. An Alumni Stadium gathering of 13,320 endured intermittent rain and a biting 45-kilometre an hour wind that gusted up to 66 kilometres throughout, making it feel like -1 C with the windchill. Predictably, both teams struggled with the conditions, committing four turnovers apiece and punting a total of 17 times. At halftime, Montreal led 2-0 but Whyte forced overtime with a 32-yard field goal at 14:55 of the fourth as each squad came up with big drives into the howling wind. Hamilton surged ahead 13-10 on Henry Burriss 17-yard TD strike to C.J. Gable with 1:04 remaining in the fourth, capping a smart 97-yard, 12-play drive against the wind. In the third, Montreal went ahead 9-6 on Troy Smiths 29-yard TD strike to Duron Carter at 10:27 to culminate a four-play, 75-yard march. Burris finished 23-of-36 passing for 203 yards with a TD and interception and said the weather conditions made it tough to execute offensively. But he said patience was a key factor on Hamiltons fourth-quarter drive. "Oh man, Mother Nature was not on my side today, it took me a while to get in sync there," he said. "Our defence did one heck of a job of keeping us in the game and to be able to make that one drive and get the touchdown to put us in the lead and get us into overtime, that was special. "We were taking what they gave us. They werent giving us much downfield so we just kind of chipped away at it. Guys just made plays." Austin admitted the Ticats pondered going with LeFevour in the fourth but opted to go with the more experienced Burris, 38, who led the CFL in passing this year, his 15th in Canada. "At the end of the day Hennry has a lot of experience and has been in these situations before," Austin said. New York Rangers Shop Free Shipping. . "We just said wed empty out and Hank, youre going to have to find the receivers and understand coverage, which he does. "It was just a guy we believe in thats played well for us this year." At least Hamilton wont have to worry about weather in the East Division final. The Ticats face the defending Grey Cup-champion Toronto Argonauts next weekend at Rogers Centre, which is a domed facility. Argos head coach Scott Milanovich said Hamiltons willingness to use multiple quarterbacks will be something his defence must prepare for. "It puts a lot on your defence," he said during a conference call. "You have to essentially prepare for two different styles of offences. "How much theyll do that against us, you wont know until game day but you have to prepare for it. That makes it difficult, takes time out of practice, and when youre preparing for a bunch of different things there are things you cant cover." It will be the first East Division meeting between Hamilton and Toronto since 1986. "I really hope they keep the roof closed," said LeFevour, who finished three-of-six passing for 36 yards while running 18 times for 61 yards. The conference champion will advance to the Grey Cup on Nov. 24 in Regina. Hamilton was hosting its first home playoff game since 2010 after taking the season series with Montreal 2-1. Montreals loss tarnished an outstanding performance by Tyrell Sutton, who ran for 142 yards on 21 carries. First-year quarterback Troy Smith was 14-of-26 passing for 142 yards with a TD and interception in his first CFL playoff game. "We had a rough time this year finishing games and holding leads and as well as we played at times (Sunday) youve got to give them credit for going down the field and scoring," said interim Als coach Jim Popp. "The last two times they had the ball they scored touchdowns, thats what they did." Sundays defeat caps a roller-coaster season for Montreal, which saw GM Popp assume coaching duties after firing rookie head coach Dan Hawkins. And during the year, the Alouettes lost a number of veterans to injury, most notably quarterback Anthony Calvillo, who was on the sidelines Sunday. But the Alouettes head into the off-season with no shortage of questions, including who will coach the team and will Calvillo be able to return in 2014 from his concussion. NOTES -- As expected, linebacker Kyries Hebert (knee) was among Montreals pre-game scratches . . . Cornerback Delvin Breaux and slotback Greg Ellingston both returned to Hamiltons starting lineup from injury . . . Hamilton was 6-3 the second half of the season, tied with Toronto for the best record in the CFL behind Calgary (7-2). Montreal was 4-5 . . . . Montreals defence features six East Division all-stars, including outstanding defensive player nominee Chip Cox, who had a CFL-high 115 tackles and team-leading 12 sacks . . . Hamiltons Marc Beswick is the East nominee as outstanding special-teams player. Hes only the second non-kicker or returner to win the award as B.C.s Jason Arakgi was the first in 09 . . . Hamilton dressed a CFL-record 88 players this season, with 57 making at least one start.
