SANDY, Utah -- Steven Lenhart scored two goals in a four-minute span of the first half to lead the San Jose Earthquakes to a 2-1 victory over Real Salt Lake on Saturday night. Nike Roshe Run Baratas España . The Earthquakes second victory in 15 road games this season moved them within three points of a playoff spot with four games remaining in the Major League Soccer regular season. "It was a big win for sure," San Jose coach Mark Watson said. "We knew we maybe had to be perfect, and win the rest of our games. I thought the effort and the commitment the players put in was fantastic." Real Salt Lake, which had won this seasons previous two meetings by shutout, got a goal from Javier Morales in the 19th minute. It was his eighth of the season and came during a flurry of scoring on an otherwise quiet night at the goal. Real Salt Lake remained tied for second place behind Seattle in the chase for the Supporters Shield, awarded to top team in the regular season. Still, it missed an opportunity to capitalize on a struggling Earthquakes team that won the Shield a season ago. Lenhart began the goal spurt when he headed in a cross from Cordell Cato in the 18th minute. After Morales equalizer, Lenhart beat goalkeeper Nick Rimando with another header, this time off a free kick from Shea Salinas. "I think he heads the ball harder than I shoot it," Salinas said of Lenhart, who recorded the sixth career multi-goal game of his career. "Its pretty impressive." Lenhart entered the night with two goals in 17 games and hadnt scored since July 27 against Portland. The forward followed each goal with an animated celebration that included a leap into the air and fist pump toward a section of the announced crowd of 20,504 - the fourth-largest in Rio Tinto Stadium history. Lenhart left to a chorus of boos when he was replaced at the beginning of stoppage time. San Jose, which ranks 16th in the league in scoring, tallied more than one goal for just the second time in seven games. Morales goal came on a corner kick from Kyle Beckerman. Salt Lake, which played without injured leading scorer Javier Morales (calf), had its three-game home winning streak snapped. Salt Lake tested the Earthquakes defence in the second half, but repeatedly failed to connect on crossing passes into the goal box. Robbie Findley and Chris Wingert each narrowly missed on shots that went wide left in the final 20 minutes. Comprar Nike Cortez España . - Blake Griffin had 30 points and 12 rebounds, J. Nike Blazer Low Hombre .

In the lead up - which seemed to begin the moment Mike Geiger blew the whistle in Houston last Thursday night - the Impact rumour mill went into overdrive. The speculation went into meltdown mode, of the golden nugget variety. WASHINGTON -- Well, thats a confounding sight at the top of the standings. The rebuilding, supposed-to-be-really-bad Philadelphia 76ers are 2-0, having followed their stunner over the Miami Heat with a win that left the Washington Wizards fans booing and their coach already questioning the players commitment. Thaddeus Young scored 29 points, rookie Michael Carter-Williams started cold and finished hot, and John Wall did just the opposite Friday night as the 76ers pulled away in the fourth quarter for a 109-102 victory. "Its only two," first-year 76ers coach Brett Brown said, "but we sure are happy." The 76ers are 2-0 for the first time since 2006-07, and they have done it by pushing the tempo and playing decent defence. They trailed by 12 points in the third quarter, but they shot 65 per cent over the final 12 minutes and finished with a staggering 74 points in the paint. Young scored 10 points in the fourth quarter. Evan Turner scored 23 points, and Spencer Hawes had 16 points and 14 rebounds. Carter-Williams finished 6 for 15 from the field after an 0-for-5 start and had 14 points and five assists. It was an inevitable climb-down from Carter-Williams stellar NBA debut when he had 22 points, 12 assists, nine steals and seven rebounds against the Heat. He overcame some early foul trouble to hit some big shots when the 76ers were making up ground on the Wizards in the third quarter. "How does a young guy respond?" Brown said. "You just keep seeing different ways where he doesnt get fazed by the moment." The Wizards were as embarrassed as they could be. They are 0-2 for the fourth consecutive year, but this season has essentially been labeled as playoffs-or-bust by owner Ted Leonsis. Coach Randy Wittman, in the last season of his contract, answered only two questions at his postgame news conference and took 5 minutes to do so, using language not appropriate for live television. "Commitment to ... playing defence. Thats what it is. ... The thing they havent llearned, and I got to figure out a way," Wittman said.Nike Air Max 90 Hombre Baratas. . "You could see it coming out of the locker room. Youve got to respect the game, your opponent. ... Everything you get is No, were OK. Were not OK. Were 0-2. Were not OK." Wall made his first seven shots and went 3 for 12 the rest of the way. He said he battled back spasms in the second half but should be fine for Sundays game at Miami. Trevor Ariza added 14 rebounds for the Wizards, who played without forward Nene (strained left calf). Marcin Gortat, acquired only a week ago in a trade, had 12 points and seven rebounds in his first start for Washington. Wall looked unstoppable in the first quarter when he reeled off 10 points in a 55-second span, beating his chest with his right fist and shouting at himself after making his second 3-pointer, but the Wizards couldnt hold a lead. Washington led by 12 after the first quarter but failed to get a field goal for nearly 6 minutes in the second. In the third quarter, a 12-point Wizards lead was wiped out in a matter of minutes, and the teams were tied at 74 entering the fourth. Carter-Williams 3-pointer with 6:28 remaining gave the 76ers their first lead of the game. They never trailed again, a team able to play with nothing to lose because everyone expects them to. "We have a lot of confidence in each other," Carter-Williams said. "And not by any means are we going to go out there and play like we dont want to win. Theres a bunch of winners on this team." NOTES: Philadelphia missed its first 10 attempts from 3-point range and finished 6 for 23 for the game. ... The home opener failed to generate much buzz for a Wizards franchise that hasnt been to the playoffs since 2008. Wall addressed the crowd a few minutes before tipoff, saying "Yall are the best fans in the NBA" -- to an arena that was less than half full. The announced attendance was 17,160. ... The Wizards remain without No. 3 overall pick Otto Porter, who has a right hip flexor injury. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys' ' '
