The Bulls turned up Antworten

PARIS -- Novak Djokovic worked his way back into the French Open final, taking care of Ernests Gulbis and his big serve 6-3, 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 Friday on the first sunny day of this years tournament. Alfredo Talavera Jersey . The second-seeded Serb was able to control the pace of the match on Court Philippe Chatrier while letting Gulbis unforced errors mount. The powerful Latvian, who was playing in his first Grand Slam semifinal, finished with 44 errors. Djokovic is a six-time major champion who needs to win the title at the French Open to complete a career Grand Slam. He also reached the final at Roland Garros in 2012, but lost to eight-time champion Rafael Nadal. Djokovic will next face either Nadal or Andy Murray in Sundays final. They were up next on Chatrier. Djokovic was first to get into trouble in the first semifinal, but he managed to save two break points and hold to 2-2 in the opening set. A few minutes later, he was ahead for good. Djokovic needed three attempts to earn his first break of the match, and he finally got it when Gulbis sent one of his many forehands long. It was also in that game that Gulbis had his first of five double-faults. His second double came in the final game of the set, when Djokovic broke again. And his third came when trailing Djokovic 4-3 in the second, when the Serb broke yet again. "Im not used to (playing) these kind of big matches," Gulbis said. "Its just normal I felt extra nervous and extra tense." Gulbis fared better in the third set. He again had two break points while leading 3-2, but again failed to win the game. However, he didnt waste his chance two games later, breaking Djokovic to take a 5-3 lead before serving out the set with his 11th ace. The two traded breaks early in the fourth set, and Djokovic broke again to lead 5-3 when Gulbis, again double-faulting once in the game, sent a backhand long. Djokovic won the last game at love. "It was a struggle out there," Gulbis said. "I felt maybe throughout the match I hit five really clean shots, from either side, backhand or forehand. Even serve." After nearly two weeks of overcast skies and cool temperatures, the sun was shining on centre court and Djokovic and Gulbis were more interested in staying cool than staying warm. Both players used ice wrapped in towels around their necks, like players often do at the sweltering Australian Open, as the temperature reached 28 degrees C (82 degrees F) on Friday. Djokovic is now 5-1 against Gulbis, a 25-year-old player who as a teen showed the potential for becoming a star. But Gulbis has said recently that he is only now playing his best tennis, and only because he has decided to leave the party lifestyle behind and focus on his sport. He certainly showed that at Roland Garros. Gulbis had reached the quarterfinals at a major only once before, and that was way back in 2008 at the French Open. In that match, he also lost to Djokovic, but in straight sets. This year, he eliminated 17-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer in the fourth round and sixth-seeded Tomas Berdych in the quarterfinals. "The more I play these kind of matches, the more Im going to get used to these situations," Gulbis said. "For me, I take only the positive stuff out of it. Yeah, I need to be in these situations once, twice, three times, and then I can maybe make that extra step." Djokovic, however, is playing even better. He has won three titles so far this season, and has beaten Nadal the last four times they have played, including on clay in the final in Rome last month. Diego Reyes Jersey . Trailing by a goal after 20 minutes of play, Joe Pavelski responded with three goals and an assist as the Sharks snapped a two-game losing skid with a 5-2 victory over the struggling Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday. Marco Fabian Jersey . -- During Kansas shootaround on Wednesday before the Jayhawks faced Oklahoma, coach Bill Self told Wayne Selden Jr. http://www.mexiconationalshop.us/Andres-Guardado-Mexico-Jersey-Soccer/ . LeBron James leads the Miami Heat in a quest for three consecutive championship titles, while Tim Duncan looks to add his fifth ring with the San Antonio Spurs when the series tips off with Game 1: Miami @ San Antonio on Thursday, June 5 at 9 p.SALT LAKE CITY -- Trey Burke finally had an opportunity to show why the Utah Jazz wanted him so badly. The Jazz traded two first-round picks to get The Associated Press college player of the year from Michigan on draft night in June but have been waiting anxiously to see him on the court. "Playing in those big moments in high school and college prepared me for this moment. I just wanted to play with confidence at the end," the point guard said after his first appearance at home. Burke made a key 3-pointer to help the Utah Jazz outlast Chicago 89-83 in overtime Monday night -- the Bulls first game since learning Derrick Rose would again be lost for the season. "I watched the young guy when he was in college at Michigan doing some spectacular things. He came to the court tonight and played a huge game in the most minutes hes played as a pro," said Marvin Williams, who led Utah with 17 points. Burke, who is finally enjoying extensive playing time after spending most of the season recovering from finger surgery, had 14 points and six assists. He also had five turnovers and shot 5 for 17 but was on the court in clutch time directing the Jazz to their second win of the season. "I certainly wasnt playing well in the beginning. I missed some shots and missed some guys who were open," Burke admitted. The Jazz expect some mistakes from the youngster but their forgettable start to the season leaves them hoping for a newfound dimension to their team. "The young fella is good and hes only going to get better. Hes in a tough spot right now as most rookies are just starting to get their rhythm but hes just getting going and therell be a learning curve," said Richard Jefferson, who had 15 points. Burke kept attacking even after he came up empty on several occasions. "Coach told me, Youre going to make some mistakes. Just learn from them and play confident out there." Burke said. Carlos Boozer had 26 points and 16 rebounds and Luol Deng added 24 points for the Bulls, who were exhausted in their fourth game in five nights and still processing the loss of Rose for the season. Hayward, who had a career-high 12 assists, helped the Jazz scored the first seven points of overtime. After Burkes 3-pointer in overtime, Hayward threw an alley-oop to Jeremy Evans for a dunk that made it 85-78 with 1:24 left in the extra period. "Im in a slump with my shot so Im trying to be more of a playmaker," Hayward said. Joakim Noah had 10 points and 13 rebounds for the Bulls, who lost their fourth straight and are just 1-7 on the road. "We go to snap out of it. We are human and we are disappointed in the way we are playing and disappointed in everything that is going on," Noah said. With the game tied at 78, Hayward ddribbled down the shot clock and launched a step-back, 16-foot jump shot that barely drew iron. Hirving Lozano Jersey. Deng, who scored 11 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter, missed a contested jumper and Boozers follow attempt rimmed out at the regulation buzzer. Rose was the only Bull who could consistently create his own shot and his teammates struggled to find good looks against Utah, shooting just 39 per cent. "Weve got to find ourseleves," Chicago coach Tom Thibodeau said. In the third quarter against the Portland Trail Blazers Friday, Rose lost his footing without contact while trying to change direction. He limped across the court and couldnt put any weight on his knee. After the Blazers scored, he came out of the game and, on Monday morning, had surgery for a torn meniscus. Throughout last season, the Bulls hoped for Rose to return from off-season left knee surgery. His recovery often took centre stage while his teammates reached 45 wins and the second round of the playoffs despite other major injuries. In the 2012 playoffs, top-seeded Chicago lost a first-round series to Philadelphia after Rose tore his ACL. Utah, which was blown out at Chicago on Nov. 8, broke a six-game losing streak against the Bulls. The Jazz played without second-leading scorer and rebounder Enes Kanter due to a sprained right ankle but they played with intensity at the end. The Chicago offence was anything but fluid yet they trailed only 56-52 before the Jazz went on an 8-0 run. Hayward converted a three-point play for Utahs largest lead of the game at 64-52 with 2:08 left in the third quarter. That margin marked the widest one the Jazz have enjoyed since the first quarter in Boston on Nov. 6, a game they lost 97-87. Jeremy Evans made back-to-back baskets for the Jazz early in the final period to make it 68-58. The Bulls turned up the defensive pressure and the Jazz wilted with two turnovers and eight consecutive misses as they failed to score for a stretch of 6:17. Boozer capped a 13-0 spurt with an elbow jumper and Chicago led for the first time since the first quarter. "We were in position to win tonight. Weve got to close out better," Thibodeau said. But the young Jazz fought back and then outscored the Bulls 11-5 in overtime. NOTES: Noah clapped and shouted at official J.T. Orr to earn a technical midway through the second quarter. He continued yelling and pointing at Orr but fellow official Tony Brothers physically escorted Noah to the Chicago bench. ... Heinrich played an offensive and defensive possession in the third quarter without one shoe when a he lost it during a loose-ball scramble. ... A few minutes later, Heinrich was issued a flagrant foul, penalty 1 when he hit Lucas in the head on a fast-break layup. ... It was the first overtime game for both teams.
