He held serve, but lost the next three games before calling a halt while leading 4-3 in his first matchup with Sousa.Nishikori, ranked No. 5, saw a doctor after the match, and will have a scan Thursday.Sousa moved on to face fifth-seeded David Goffin. The Belgian beat Jiri Vesely 6-3, 7-5.Also, fourth-seeded Marin Cilic rallied to defeat Spanish baseliner Fernando Verdasco 4-6, 7-5, 7-5.Berdych captured his first ATP title of the season when he retained his Shenzhen Open crown in China on Sunday, but his first-round defeat in Tokyo dented his bid for the ATP Finals. He is ninth in the race for the elite eight-man finals, which hes played for the last six years.A weary Berdych, the 2008 champ, squandered three break points in the sixth game then failed to convert a set-point in the first tiebreaker.After falling 3-0 behind in the second set, the Czech called for a trainer to treat a left glute complaint, and was unable to stop Muller, who fired 12 aces.At the beginning of the second set, my body gave me a bit of a sign Ive been playing a little too much tennis in the last couple of weeks, Berdych said.Muller, a two-time finalist this year, next faces Marcos Baghdatis. Teppo Numminen Jets Jersey . Denis Coderre, the former federal MP who was elected mayor on Nov. 3, has drawn the ire of some Montreal Canadiens. During last nights game he tweeted: "Hello?

The lower tier of the School End of Queens Park Rangers Loftus Road was packed solid with a very festive-sounding Chelsea choral section in this particular part of South Africa Road London, W12. . McCarthy, a player who played some games in the second tier for Wigan at the start of this season, would go on to shine inside Evertons midfield, outplaying the man he was brought in to replace, on one of the grandest stages in English football. On Saturday, it was fitting that Manchester Uniteds most recent dagger into the chest was delivered by Frenchman Yohan Cabaye, a wonderfully gifted central midfielder who put on an outstanding effort for Newcastle at Old Trafford. Teemu Selanne Jersey . Anthony Calvillo, through 20 CFL seasons, was frequently invincible and largely stoic in the heat of competition. But underneath the professional exterior he was, and is, compellingly human. Dmitry Kulikov Jersey . -- Kyrie Irvings last-minute 3-pointer helped seal another victory for Cleveland -- and the Cavaliers longest winning streak since LeBron James left. PORTLAND, Ore. -- Damian Lillard thinks his Portland Trail Blazers lack that killer instinct to put away games when they should.Lillard had 36 points and CJ McCollum scored 31 to lead Portland past the Sacramento Kings 122-120 in overtime Friday night.The victory could have come easier, though.

Our goal is to play well for longer periods.Cousins led Sacramento with 33 points. Gay had 29 points and 14 rebounds for the Kings, who were coming off a 101-91 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers the night before.McCollums 3-pointer with 1:23 left in overtime gave Portland a 117-115 lead before Gays three-point play put Sacramento back ahead.McCollum added a 19-footer to put Portland in front, but a loose ball foul on the Blazers gave Sacramentos Darren Collison two free throws. He made both, giving the Kings a 120-119 lead with 33.8 seconds left.Cousins said Sacramentos issues have mirrored Lillards assessment of his own team.Throughout this whole season weve shown flashes of who we can be, but weve got to get past that stage of showing flashes and be the team that we want to be, Cousins said.Leonard made his first start of the season for the Blazers, who were without forward Al-Farouq Aminu for the second straight game because of a left calf injury.Aminu started the first eight games for the Blazers, averaging 6.4 points and 6.6 rebounds before he was hurt Tuesday nnight early in Portlands 124-121 victory over Phoenix.ddddddddddddAddressing the media before Friday nights game, Stotts said Aminu would be re-evaluated after two weeks.Leonards thunderous dunk put the Blazers up 32-27 late in the first quarter, and they led by 12 en route to a 62-57 advantage at the break. McCollum led all scorers at halftime with 16 points.Cousins fadeaway in the third quarter tied the game at 68, and Gay hit a 3-pointer to put the Kings in front.

Crabbes jumper put Portland in front before Lillard hit another 3 to make it 99-95.Cousins 3-pointer pulled the Kings to 106-104 with less than a minute to go in regulation, and his layup tied it with 9.7 seconds left. Lillards 3-pointer at the buzzer was off the mark, sending the game to overtime.Portland was coming off a 111-80 loss to the Clippers in Los Angeles on Wednesday night.THE TAKEAWAYKings: Collison returned to the Kings this week after an eight-game suspension to start the season. He pleaded guilty to misdemeanor domestic battery after an incident at his Sacramento-area home in May.Trail Blazers: Leonard and Cousins got into it in the first quarter and received offsetting technicals. Cousins has been mentioned in numerous trade rumors of late, including some involving the Blazers. ... Portland is 5-0 when Lillard and McCollum both score at least 30 points.BLOWING THE WHISTLECousins cant understand why hes not getting foul calls.I dont understand it, he said. I dont know what I have to do. I just dont understand it. I have to play through a lot. Im not really rewarded for it, but Im just trying to stay mentally strong through it.PERFECT 10Lillard has 306 points, most by a Trail Blazers player in the opening 10 games of a season. Hes also the first to score 30 or more points six times in the first 10 games of a season.UP NEXTKings: Sacramento hosts San Antonio next Wednesday.Trail Blazers: Portland hosts the Denver Nuggets on Sunday.
