    Indianapolis, IN (SportsNetwork. Rickard Rakell Ducks Jersey .com) - Mo Williams poured in 37 of his career- high 52 points in the second half to fuel the Minnesota Timberwolves in a 110-101 win over the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday. Williams, who scored 16 points in the third quarter and 21 in the fourth, broke the franchise record for points previously held by Corey Brewer and Kevin Love. He also set the opponent scoring record at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Williams effort helped the Wolves snap a 15-game losing streak overall and 10-game skid on the road. Minnesota hadnt won since Dec. 10 at home against the Portland Trail Blazers, and hadnt tasted victory on the road since Nov. 28 against the Lakers. Mo was unbelievable, Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said. He trusted guys. Other guys made shots. I thought that we played with a good sense of urgency and we played all 48 minutes. Andrew Wiggins added 20 points, Thaddeus Young had 11 and Gorgui Dieng contributed 10 points and 10 rebounds in the win. C.J. Miles paced Indiana with 22 points and C.J. Watson deposited 17 points for the Pacers, who have dropped two straight and three of their last four. Robbie Hummel followed a Williams triple with one of his own early in the fourth to help the Wolves cut their deficit to 81-80, then Williams tied the game minutes later with three straight free throws. Williams tied the game again later in the fourth moments before Wiggins three-point play gave Minnesota its first lead since the second quarter. He was in a ridiculous zone, Pacers coach Frank Vogel said of Williams. Sometimes players get into ridiculous zones. Williams continued to put on a show and lead the struggling Wolves. His contested 3-pointer in front of David West pushed the margin to 102-96 with 1:19 remaining prior to Youngs running layup that kept the visitors in front the rest of the way. Indiana led by as many as nine on a couple of occasions in the third. Wests jumper with 40 seconds to go gave the hosts a 73-64 lead, but Williams canned a 3-pointer at the other end to keep the Timberwolves close. Williams strong third quarter helped the visitors close to within 75-69 entering the fourth. Minnesota limited the Pacers to 8-of-22 (36.4 percent) shooting in the opening quarter and took a 25-21 lead into the second. Rodney Stuckey then scored seven points for Indiana as part of a 15-4 run over the first 4:36 of the quarter. The Pacers maintained their edge with a 57 percent shooting clip in the second and held a 52-46 advantage at the half.

Monta Ellis had 30 points and nine assists, Nowitzki was another of seven Dallas players in double figures with 11 points and the Mavericks beat the Los Angeles Lakers 123-104 Tuesday night.No active pitcher in baseball has made more starts without appearing in a World Series game than San Francisco righty Tim Hudson. Thatll change on Friday when he takes the ball trying to give the Giants a leg up on the Kansas City Royals, as the Fall Classic shifts to AT&T Park for a pivotal Game 3. Early in my career, I thought that Id be here well before now -- theres no question about it, said Hudson, who has started 457 games. But as your career creeps along and youre not able to get here to this big dance, you realize how hard it is. Ive told some of these young guys who are rookies on our club, Soak it all in, man. Because you never know when youre going to be back. The 39-year-old hurler has had two starts this postseason and has pitched to a 3.29 ERA without recording a decision. After throwing 7 1/3 innings of one-run ball in the NLDS, the Los Angeles Dodgers banged him around for four runs in 6 1/3 frames. San Francisco, though, won both of his starts. Hudson has pitched to a 4.12 ERA in 11 starts against the Royals and allowed three runs and six hits in six innings in a no-decision against them earlier in the year. However, Kansas Citys running game could be a concern for him, as over the past two years, Hudson has allowed 22 steals in 26 attempts, the 10th-worst success rate among big leaguers with at least 200 innings. You obviously have to be concerned with it, Hudson said. Thats one of the big strengths of their ballclub. You have to understand how to control the running game. Kansas City, meanwhile, will counter with righty Jeremy Guthrie, who has won five of six decisions since falling to Oakland on Aug. 12. Guthrie has allowed one run or less in six of those nine starts in that span, including a no- decision against Baltimore in the ALCS that saw him surrender a run and three hits in five innings. Ryan Garbutt Ducks Jersey Authentic. My goal is to put up zeros, Guthrie said. If I put up zeros, I have a chance to stay in. If I dont, Im going to be taken out, whether its a National League ballpark or not. So thats got to be the focus for me is, what can I do to put up zeros against a good hitting team. Hes also pitched well away from home, going 5-1 with a 2.95 ERA in his last six road starts. Kansas City evened this best-of-seven set on Wednesday, as Omar Infantes two- run homer punctuated a five-run sixth inning that propelled the Royals to a 7-2 win. The Royals bullpen triumvirate of Kelvin Herrera, Wade Davis and Greg Holland continued their domination with 3 2/3 scoreless innings. KCs bullpen has gone 7-0 this postseason with a 1.81 ERA. Of course, as the set transitions to the NL ballpark, the Royals will lose designated hitter Billy Butler in the starting lineup. In the National League, to have a bat like Billy Butlers on the bench coming in a situation, it could be the fourth inning, it could be the fifth inning or the sixth inning with guys in scoring position, Kansas City skipper Ned Yost said. That could be the difference. San Franciscos Pablo Sandoval has continued to carve out his own postseason legacy and has reached base safely in a franchise record 25 straight games. Since the start of divisional play in 1969, the team to win Game 3 in a Series where the first two games were split has gone on to capture the championship 16 of 19 times. These teams actually met in the regular season, as the Royals completed a three-game sweep at Kauffman Stadium. Fridays contest, though, will be Kansas Citys first in San Francisco since 2005. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys AuthenticWholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
