seven seasons under Saban, only LSU has done it. It was far from a typical Alabama victory, but the two-time defending national champions will take it. " from jj009's blog

CLEVELAND -- Jeff Teague never saw his winning shot bounce five times off the rim and fall through the basket Thursday night. Al Davis Jersey . Fortunately, his teammates let him know the result. Teague scored a career-high 34 points, including a 20-foot jumper at the buzzer in the second overtime, to give the Atlanta Hawks a 127-125 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Teague was flat on his back after shooting over Tristan Thompson and had no idea the ball went in until he was mobbed by his teammates. Only when Kyle Korver began pounding Teagues chest did reality hit. "I couldnt even see it, but Kyle picked me up and told me what happened," Teague said. "Im really happy it went in." The Hawks would never have been in a position to win the game if not for Teagues 3-pointer with 4.9 seconds left that tied the game at 108-all in the first overtime. "It was nice for this amazing game to finally be over," Atlanta coach Mike Budenholzer said. "Obviously, Jeff Teague made a lot of plays throughout the game and in the overtimes. Im proud of him." Kyrie Irving led Cleveland with 40 points, including 12 in the second OT but the Cavaliers have lost three straight and five of six. "He made a tough play," Irving said. "Its definitely a heartbreaker." Irving was held scoreless for the only time in his career when the teams played in Atlanta on Dec. 6. He bounced back from that game by hitting 17 of 33 from the field with nine assists in 45 minutes. Hawks centre Al Horford, who scored two baskets late in regulation to tie the game, bruised his right shoulder in the first OT and didnt return. Budenholzer said Horford would be further examined Friday. The game featured 12 lead changes and was tied 17 times. The Hawks were coming off a 121-119 overtime loss in Miami on Monday. The defeat, in which Atlanta couldnt hold a seven-point lead with 90 seconds left in regulation, broke a three-game winning streak. Korver scored 20 points, including four 3-pointers. He has made at least one 3-pointer in an NBA record 98 consecutive games. "A lot of guys made some plays," he said. "I think were growing as a team, so thats a positive step." Cavaliers guard Dion Waiters returned after missing three games because of tendinitis in his right wrist. He scored 20 points in 41 minutes, but it was another difficult loss for Cleveland. Portlands Damian Lillard hit a 3-pointer with 0.4 seconds left to defeat the Cavaliers on Dec. 17. "Its tough, man," Waiters said. "We have to close it out -- especially at home. We have to do a better job. No excuses." Irving hit a 3-pointer and a layup a steal for the first five points of the second overtime. Thompson followed with a basket and a three-point play to give Cleveland a 118-113 lead with 2:50 remaining, but the Hawks werent finished. Korver converted a four-point play with 2:33 remaining that cut the lead to one. Irving and Korver exchanged 3-pointers, Clevelands All-Star point guard followed with a jumper for a 123-120 lead. Following Shelvin Macks basket, Teague converted a three-point play to put Atlanta up 125-123. Irvings jumper tied the game with 55.8 seconds left. Teagues 3-pointer with 4.9 seconds left tied the game at 108-all in the first overtime. The Cavaliers called timeout, but Irving lost the ball out of bounds for one of his six turnovers, giving the Hawks one last shot with 2.4 seconds to go. Teague missed from the corner, forcing the second overtime. Two baskets by Horford, who scored 25 points, late in the fourth quarter tied the game at 95-all and neither team scored again in regulation. Cleveland centre Andrew Bynum, who missed all 11 of his shots and was scoreless Monday against Detroit, had four points and one rebound in 18 minutes. He went to the bench early in the third quarter and didnt return. Hawks forward DeMarre Carroll injured his right hand after running into a Tyler Zeller pick in the fourth quarter and didnt return. NOTES: Irving has scored at least 20 points in seven consecutive home games ... Cleveland coach Mike Brown moved F Earl Clark into the starting lineup in place of Alonzo Gee. Gee had started 15 straight games, but saw no action Thursday. Clark had three points in 18 minutes. ... Hawks G John Jenkins (lower back pain) was inactive. ... Atlanta F Cartier Martin (sprained left ankle) went through an extended workout after the morning shoot-around, but didnt play. Bo Jackson Jersey . - Blake Griffin had 30 points and 12 rebounds, J. Dan Williams Jersey . The Barrie Colts defenceman, who impressed many with his play for Canada at the World Junior Hockey Championship, is the top-ranked skater in the February rankings.

Siddikur, whose previous win on the circuit came in Brunei three years ago, finished his bogey-free round with a birdie on the 18th for a total of 17-under 199. Indias Shiv Chowrasia, who has finished runner-up in this tournament twice, was in second place after a 66.COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Unable to stop Johnny Manziel, Alabama answered Texas A&M the only way it could: The top-ranked Crimson Tide just kept on scoring, hoping to have the ball last. When AJ McCarron took a knee to end it, Alabama was finally safe. There was nothing more Manziel could do. McCarron threw four touchdown passes, Vinnie Sunseri returned an interception 73 yards for a score -- sidestepping Johnny Football on the way to the end zone, too -- and Alabama paid back No. 6 Texas A&M with a 49-42 victory Saturday. Manziel was his spectacular self, throwing for a career-best 464 yards, running for 98 and throwing five TDs. His 562 total yards is the second-most in Southeastern Conference history, ranking only behind the 576 he had against Louisiana Tech. "We knew we were going to have play this way on offence to have a chance in this game," Tide coach Nick Saban said. "I didnt think they were going to score 42 points, but I kind of thought they would score some points and they did." Alabama (2-0, 1-0 SEC) spotted the Aggies (2-1, 0-1) a 14-0 lead, shades of last season when A&M jumped out to a 20-0 lead on the road en route to a victory that all but won the Heisman Trophy for Manziel. McCarron and the Tide didnt take as long to respond this time, ripping off the next 35 points. McCarron tossed three touchdowns in the first half to put Alabama up 28-14. Sunseris pick-6 made it 35-14 less than three minutes into the third. "Im so proud of our players for the resiliency they showed getting behind 14-0," Saban said. "Just slowly and methodically coming back in the game and building up the lead." The Manziel magic moment came in the second quarter, when he retreated 25 yards behind the line of scrimmage, pulling away from one pass rusher who had a handful of jersey and launching a deep ball down the middle with another Tide player in his face. Edward Pope came down with the alley-oop for a 12-yard gain that will make every highlight reel. But a couple of plays later Manziel was picked off in the end zone and the game swung the Tides way. "I will take that one on me," Manziel said. The Tide followed the pick with a long, slow drive capped by T.J. Yeldons 4-yard TD run. Yeldon popped up and looked toward the fans behind the end zone, rubbing his fingers together, mocking Manziels move, then finished off his celebration with sort of a double throat slash. Those antics earned Yeldon a 15-yard penalty and the wrath of Saban on the sideline, but Alabama still took a 28-14 lead into halftime. Manziels third-quarter pick and whiff on the tackle put the Aggies in a deep hole, but he kept bringing them back. "I thought his play was Johnny-like," coach Kevin Sumlin said. "Anybody whos seen him play, thats about right." Alabamas best defence was its offence. The Tide gained 568 yards and kept Manziel pacing on the sideline with a couple of long drives. "With the type of offence A&M has, you have to eat up some clock and pound the ball," said McCarron, who passed for 334 yards. This rematch of A&Ms 29-24 win in Tuscaloosa, Ala., last November was hyped for months, heightened by off-season drama about Manziel that culminated with the sophomore getting suspended for half of the opening game after an NCAA investigation into whetheer he was paid for signing autographs. Malcolm Smith Jersey. Manziel only answered questions about the game afterward. He was one of many Aggies reminding everyone what happened to the loser of this matchup last year. "This wasnt the Super Bowl," Manziel said. "Alabama lost a game last year and still went on to win the national championship. Our season isnt over." Bama-A&M II lived up to the billing, but this SEC heavyweight matchup was no 9-6 Game of the Century. The offences were all but unstoppable. "Theyre unbelievable," Sunseri said. "Theres a reason he won the Heisman. Hes an unbelievable player, I dont care what he does off the field. He has great receivers and everything. We knew it was going to go back and forth and we just had to try to slow him down." A&Ms defence was leaky in its first two games against far weaker opponents. Against Alabama, even with the return of four key players from various suspensions, it put up little resistance. And while the Tides offence wore out the Aggies, its defence struck a big blow in the third quarter. Manziel threw deep down the middle to Malcome Kennedy, but Jarrick Williams had tight coverage for Alabama and tipped the pass into the air. Sunseri came down with it and was off in the other direction, stutter-stepping as Manziel slid on by while trying for a one-arm takedown. The safety broke another tackle on the way into the end zone and Alabama was up 35-14. Manziel walked slowly across the field to the A&M sideline, taking a couple of glances toward the end zone and Alabamas celebration. A crowd of 87,596 that was booming like a jet engine earlier fell silent. They were hoping to see the Aggies get their third victory against a No. 1 team, and second straight against Alabama. Alabama was poised to go up three touchdowns in the fourth quarter when Texas A&Ms defence slammed into Yeldon a couple of yards from the goal line, causing a fumble the Aggies recovered at the 5. Two plays later, Manziel found Mike Evans deep. The big receiver broke away from a tackler and went 95 yards for a score that made it 42-35 with 8:04 left. Manziel sprinted out of his end zone toward the other to celebrate. The crowd was alive again. In need of a time-consuming drive, leaned on Yeldon and McCarron. On third-and-goal from the 5, McCarron faked the hand off, rolled right and flipped to Jalston Fowler for the touchdown to make it 49-35 with 2:28 left. Manziel threw one more TD with 15 seconds left, but Alabama grabbed the onside kick and that was that. Sabans defence had given up 628 yards, the most ever allowed by Alabama, and 42 points. Evans finished with 279 yards on seven catches for the Aggies, but the Tide had won. "I know you tried to make it out (to be) a 61-year-old guy against that good quarterback but we didnt have much of a chance in that game," Saban said. "We had a lot better chance our team against their team. " And the Aggies found out just how tough it is to win two in a row against the Tide. In seven seasons under Saban, only LSU has done it. It was far from a typical Alabama victory, but the two-time defending national champions will take it. "We needed everybody all in today," Saban said. "Even though it got ugly at times, they competed and it was a great win for us."
