LOS ANGELES -- The ball. Thats what Team USA coach Mike Krzyzewski came up as part of a list of things that are going to be challenging for the Americans during this five-game exhibition tour before they head to Rio de Janeiro for the Summer Olympics.It takes some time to adjust to the Molten basketball, which is used in international competition and is said to be a bit slicker than the Spalding basketballs used in the NBA, Krzyzewski said on Sunday after his teams 106-57 rout of China.Even with superstars such as Stephen Curry, Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, James Harden, Russell Westbrook and LeBron James pulling out of consideration for this Olympic team, Team USA is so much better than the teams theyll be playing during these warm-up games, its hard to assess just where the American team is.I hope were never challenged, Krzyzewski said after Team USAs second straight rout. But there have been challenging points in each game. A huge thing is for us to just get to know one another [on this tour]. ... The rules and the ball. You can tell with some of our guys, they dont have the feel yet. Its a challenge to adapt to the game.The challenging points Sunday came, um, in the first quarter when Team USA led just 10-7 with 3 minutes, 10 seconds to go. But then Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson came in and started raining 3-pointers and the Americans went on a 16-6 run to close the quarter.I dont think theres any coach that likes not to see the ball go in, Krzyzewski said. Because theres a part of you that says -- Will it?I dont care what team youre coaching, you would feel that way.Still, this is what constitutes worry for Team USA at this point.And it basically went away as soon as Durant and Thompson started making shots.For all the talk of the lack of experience and leadership on this years team -- only Durant and Carmelo Anthony played in the 2012 Summer Olympics -- the talent gap, particularly against the teams the Americans will play on this exhibition tour, is still virtually insurmountable.There are teams that are capable of challenging the U.S. once it gets to Rio -- Spain, France, Serbia to name a few -- but right now the Select Team would probably push them harder than Argentina, China or Nigeria during this tour.In the meantime, Krzyzewski said hes putting the team focus on building a defensive identity because of the versatility and athleticism it has on that side of the ball.This group has been a fabulous group to coach, Krzyzewski said. None of the groups weve coached have worked harder defensively.Sunday he tried out lineups with Indiana Pacers swingman Paul George defending the point guard position and loved the pressure he was able to put on the ball. Then, theres the dimension Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan gives them.Jordan began the game with a thunderous block on Chinas Wang Zhelin, then raced down the court to slam home an alley-oop, which got the home crowd out of its seats early.Coach told me if I didnt do anything in the first 30 seconds I was coming out, said Jordan, who finished with 12 points, 5 rebounds and 3 blocks in just 17 minutes.Team USA will face this same Chinese team Tuesday at Oracle Arena, then finish out the tour in Chicago and Houston.A lot of the times were thinking about the opponent, Jordan said. But with only five games, all we really need to work on is ourselves.

Randy Moss Jersey . - After leading the Saints to a fourth playoff appearance in five seasons, Drew Brees expressed confidence in the direction of his team and, perhaps more importantly, showed a willingness to listen to contract proposals if the team needs his help getting under the NFLs salary cap. Chuck Foreman Jersey .ca. Kerry, Just watched the shootout in the Coyotes/Leafs game and I have to ask, why was the James van Riemsdyk goal allowed to count? All of the video replays we were shown on TV were inconclusive about whether the puck had entirely crossed the line or not. NEW YORK -- For the second time this week, the New York Rangers used a strong third period at home to beat the Carolina Hurricanes.Chris Kreider scored twice 4:46 apart late in the third period to lift the Rangers to a 4-2 victory over the Hurricanes on Saturday.We found a way in the third period, Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said. When the game was on the line, to play our best hockey to get two points, well take it and get ready for the next game.On Tuesday night, the Rangers trailed 2-0 before pulling within one in the second and scoring twice in the third to beat Carolina 3-2.Derek Stepan had a goal and two assists and Michael Grabner also scored, and Mats Zuccarello had two assists for the Rangers. Henrik Lundqvist stopped 21 shots to bounce back from a shaky outing at Buffalo two nights earlier and pick up his 11th win of the season.New York is also now 8-0-1 after a loss this season, and has not lost consecutive games in regulation. The Rangers also improved to 21-3-0 in the last 24 meetings with Carolina at Madison Square Garden.Were like all the teams, we need our goaltender to be one of our best players and we need our other best players, whether theyre Ds or forwards, to play at the level theyre supposed to, Vigneault said. Theres no doubt that Kreids (Kreider) did that tonight.Kreider scored the tiebreaking goal with 7:35 left as he knocked in a rebound past Hurricanes goalie Michael Leighton. Kreider then made it a two-goal game with 2:49 remaining as his shot from the left side rang off the post and deflected back in off Leighton,There was a big difference in our game, more energy, more speed to our game, Lundqvist said of the Rangers play in the final period compared to the first two. It felt like they wanted it a little bit more for two periods, but I think in this league a lot of times games are decided in the third. Teams try to stay close and then in the third you try to make that final push to make the differenceViktor Stalberg and Victor Rask scored for Carolina and Leighton finished with 24 saves in his second start of the season. The Hurricanes concluded a three-game road trip and fell to 1-4-1 in their last six games.You got to be able to spend more time in the offeensive zone, Hurricanes coach Bill Peters said.dddddddddddd. When you are not in the offensive zone that means you are going to spend too much time defending. And we did that in the final 20 minutes.Carolina (9-10-5) had a strong first period, outshooting the Rangers 15-3, but Stepans goal 4:05 in gave New York a 1-0 lead. Kevin Klein joined the rush and crashed the net which allowed Stepan to control his own rebound and open up the scoring. The referee initially waived off the goal, but it counted after a review.Stalberg, who scored twice in the Hurricanes loss here Tuesday night, tied it as he beat Lundqvist with a wrist shot on the glove side. Rangers captain Ryan McDonagh tried to skate the puck out of trouble but turned it over in the neutral zone leading to Carolinas odd man rush.He fits the modern game, a big guy, that can skate well, Peters said of Stalberg. Thats what he does. Hes a guy that makes it hard (on the opponent).Defenseman Brett Pesce, a native of suburban Tarrytown, picked up the primary assist on Stalbergs goal.Grabner picked up his 13th of the season to put the Rangers up 2-1 at 5:54 of the third.Peters challenged the goal, claiming the play was offside before New York entered the zone, but the referee announced the video review was inconclusive.Rask tied it just 32 seconds later with his ninth goal of the season and 99th career NHL point as his slap shot from the point beat Lundqvist.Game notes The Rangers 13-game home winning streak against Carolina is the longest home winning streak the Rangers have posted against one opponent in franchise history. .
