CHICAGO -- If you ask Chicago Bulls forward Jimmy Butler, the formula for success is pretty simple.Compete hard on defense. Every play, every quarter, every night.We can score, thats not a concern, Butler told the Chicago Sun-Times this week. But well only go as far as our defense carries us. You can bet on that.Now it is up to Butler and his teammates to put their words into action.Chicago (5-4) will seek its third win in the past four games Saturday night as it hosts the Washington Wizards (2-6). The game marks the final home game for the Bulls before they embark on a six-game road trip that stretches past Thanksgiving.Meanwhile, the banged-up Wizards would be thankful to improve upon a disappointing start to the season. Coach Scott Brooks squad remains winless (0-3) on the road, and it will not be at full strength as it looks for success in Chicago.Point guard John Wall will miss the game as Brooks tries to preserve his health and effectiveness for the bulk of the season. Wall, who underwent surgeries on both of his knees during the offseason, played 35 minutes against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night and will be rested rather than playing back-to-back nights.Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal also could miss the game. The No. 3 overall pick in the 2012 draft experienced tightness in his right hamstring earlier this week and did not play Friday against the Cleveland Cavaliers. His status for Saturday is uncertain.Its early in the season, but we want our players to be able to compete at a high level and feel comfortable out there right now, Brooks told The Washington Post. Hes definitely progressing and well see how he feels (Saturday) morning.Injuries limited Beal to 55 games last season.I hate being injured, Beal told the Post. This is something that could have been a lot worse, and thankfully its not. Just more tightness than anything and irritation of nerves and everything thats involved in the human body. Its just a matter of me just being smart about it.In Walls place, guard Tomas Satoransky likely will receive more playing time. The 6-foot-7, 210-pound rookie from the Czech Republic has averaged 3.8 points per game.Veteran shooting guard Marcus Thornton could start if Beal is unable to go.The Bulls are healthy with the exception of guard Michael Carter-Williams, who could miss another month with a left knee injury. The team is coming off a three-point win over the Miami Heat on Thursday in Dwyane Wades return to South Florida.Wade has scored 17.3 points per game since signing a free-agent contract with his hometown Bulls. The only player averaging more points per game is Butler (22.3).Defense has determined the Bulls fate this season. The team is 4-0 when limiting opponents to fewer than 100 points, and it is 1-4 when allowing 100-plus points.A similar storyline has unfolded for the Wizards. They are 0-5 when surrendering 100-plus points, compared with 2-1 when holding opponents to double digits. Eagles Super Bowl Jerseys From China .

Dukurs winning time was 1 minute, 45.76 seconds, a quarter-second better than Russias Alexander Tretiakov. Lativas Tomass Dukurs was third, 1.41 seconds off the pace. Jon Montgomery of Eckville, Alta. .C. -- After a listless first half, the Washington Wizards used a big third quarter run to beat the Charlotte Bobcats Bradley Beal scored 21 points and the Wizards used a 17-0 run in the third quarter to take control of what had been a close game and beat the Bobcats 97-83 on Tuesday night.

Perhaps Carroll was so prepared for a break because he believes there is very little the Seattle Seahawks need heading into the off-season. "I dont see anything that we need to add. We just have to get better," Carroll said. SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Theo Epstein is rising to a new reality.For the last few years Ive had a semi-recurring dream, maybe five or six times, where Ive woken up, wow, we just won the World Series with the Cubs. Thats unbelievable, he recalled Monday night.And then about 10 seconds later I realize it was just a dream, and then the rest of the day stinks, right? Its a pretty great feeling and then back to reality. The last five days or whatever its been, Ive been waking up with the same realization and then it takes a couple seconds. Wow! It really happened!Days after the team he designed ended a long championship drought, Epstein was voted The Sporting News Major League Baseball Executive of the Year for revitalizing the Chicago Cubs.Balloting by 56 big league executives took place before the postseason. The Cubs led the majors with 103 wins during the regular season, then beat Cleveland in a seven-game World Series last week for their first title since 1908.During the parade I kept telling my wife we need to go home to change some diapers and do some laundry, because this is not real life, he said. Weve got to get our feet back on the ground.Epstein was presented with the award at the start of the annual general managers meeting. He received 13 votes, followed by Clevelands Chris Antonetti (nine), the New York Yankees Brian Cashman (eight), Texas Jon Daniels (seven), Clevelands Mike Chernoff and Washingtons Mike Rizzo (three each), and Baltimores Dan Duquette and the Cubs Jed Hoyer (two apiece).Now 42, Epstein was the youngest general manager in major league history when Boston hired him at age 28 in November 2002. He helped the Red Sox win the 2004 World Series, their first title since 1918, and a second championship in 2007.Winning at 42 vs. 30, I have a greater appreciation for how hard it is and how many people have to contribute and how lucky you have to get along the way, too, he said.Epstein left Boston after the 2011 season to become president of baseball operations with the Cubs, who lost 91 games that year. As he rebuilt the team, the Cubs dropped 101 games in 2012, 96 the following year and 89 in 2014. They won 97 games last year to gaiin a wild card, returning to the playoffs for the first time since 2008 only to get swept by the New York Mets in the NL Championship Series.ddddddddddddhis year, Chicago defeated San Francisco in the Division Series, overcame a 2-1 deficit against the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL Championship Series and then became the first team to rally from a 3-1 World Series deficit since the 1985 Kansas City Royals.Chicagos 10th-inning rally in Game 7 was sparked by Albert Almora Jr., the first player drafted under Epsteins regime, taken sixth overall in 2012. Third baseman Kris Bryant was drafted in 2013 and outfielder Kyle Schwarber in 2014, and the Cubs traded for pitcher Jake Arrieta (from Baltimore), first baseman Anthony Rizzo (San Diego) and shortstop Addison Russell (Oakland).Jon Lester was signed as a free agent after the 2014 season and fellow pitcher John Lackey, all-purpose player Ben Zobrist and outfielders Dexter Fowler and Jason Heyward were signed last offseason.Chicago gave Epstein a new five-year contract in September. Now the challenge is to win two in a row and match the 1907-08 Cubs.It does make you hungry just to validate it. When you can win two, I think it means even more, he said. Wed love to be the type of organization that national baseball fans think of when you think of October baseball.Aroldis Chapman, Fowler, Jason Hammel and Travis Wood have become free agents. Epstein already has been thinking about roster alterations.The mix has to change a little bit, he said. If you look to just bring back every single component and try to recreate the past, its going to change by definition. Group dynamics change. Human beings change. And so maybe its better to change it in some small ways on your terms and some intent behind it rather than just let it come back exactly the same and be stale. ... Well make some smaller changes, but I do have a feeling this nucleus is going to stay intact a lot longer than what we did in Boston.Founded in 1886, TSN ended its print edition in 2012 but remains available online.
