straight games against Western Conference teams.

LONDON -- Usain Bolt looked in fine shape for the Olympics by winning his last race before Rio de Janeiro on his return from injury. Randall Cunningham Jersey .Keni Harrison also looked more than ready for Brazil by breaking a 28-year record in the 100-meters hurdles in London on Friday.Only unlike Bolt, Harrison is not going to the Olympics.While Bolt is Rio-bound despite being forced to pull out of the Jamaican trials with a hamstring injury, Harrison failed to make the American track squad after a poor performance at her trials.Instead, Harrison will have to settle for her record-breaking night at the London Diamond League meet being her crowning moment of the summer.The 23-year-old Harrison ran 12.20 seconds on the site of the 2012 Olympics to surpass Yordanka Donkovas previous mark of 12.21 set in August 1988; before the American was born.Not making the Olympic team I was really upset, Harrison said. And I wanted to come out here and do what I know what I could have done (in Rio).Even sweeter for Harrison was finishing ahead of compatriots Brianna Rollins and Kristi Castlin, who both qualified for the Olympics ahead of her.You have one bad day but I knew I still had it in me, Harrison said, referring to her sixth-place finish at the U.S. trials earlier this month. I was coming out here with just vengeance to show these girls what I have.Bolt rarely has anything to prove to anyone. But the six-time Olympian champion had to show in London that he hasnt been slowed by the hamstring injury that led to him withdrawing from his countrys Olympic trials.In his first 200-meter race of the season, the worlds fastest man ran 19.89 seconds at the same Olympic Stadium where four years ago he took golds from the 100, 200 and 4x100-meter relay races. On Friday, Bolt finished ahead of Alonso Edward of Panama and British runner Adam Gemili, clocking below LaShawn Merritts world-leading time of 19.74.Im not fully in shape. I need more work but over time I will be fine, Bolt said. I could feel the rust. The execution up there wasnt perfect but it was my first run so I cant complain.The only complaints Bolt had were targeted at American rivals who had lightly suggested -- not strongly -- that he got preferential treatment by being allowed to skip the Jamaican trials.I felt it was a joke, the Bolt said. I felt it was a disrespect the fact they think Id back out of a trials. Me, Usain Bolt who has proven myself year (after) year that Im the greatest.I laughed when I heard it. I was disappointed, especially in Justin Gatlin.Elsewhere in London, there was a trio of French winners: Jimmy Vicaut ran a sluggish 100 meters in 10.02 seconds, Pierre-Ambroise Bosse clocked 1 minute, 43.88 seconds in the 800 and Renaud Lavillenie cleared 5.9 meters in the pole vault.Olympic triple jump Christian Taylor prepared for his defense in Rio by reaching 17.78 meters.There were a couple of victories for British women on the fast newly-laid track: Laura Muir in the 1,500 as well as the quartet of Asha Philip, Desiree Henry, Dina Asher-Smith and Daryll Neita in the 4X100-meter relay.The meet continues for a second day on Saturday. Carson Wentz Womens Jersey . Brett Kulak and Jackson Houck of the Vancouver Giants were each charged with assault causing bodily harm on Aug. 18, according to the B.C. court services.

Ellis hit two-run homers and the NL West champion Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Diego Padres 4-0 Saturday night. BOSTON -- Brad Marchand was simply explaining how easy things felt for him on the ice Saturday night. He could have been talking about his entire team, though.Tuukka Rask was rarely tested in his latest win, and Patrice Bergerons power-play score capped a three-goal second period that carried the Boston Bruins to a 4-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets.I think just some games you feel good and the puck seems to find you, said Marchand, who had a second-period goal.That was kind of one of those games tonight. I felt like when it bounces its coming to me, and things kind of work out.Rask needed only 11 saves to raise his record to 11-2, but lost a bid for his fourth shutout with 2:40 to play. He was the NHLs First Star last week, going 4-0-0 with a 0.75 goals-against average.We were skating, we were battling, our forecheck was great, Rask said. We didnt give them any time, any space anywhere on the ice. A very, very good effort. What can I say? Only 12 shots, thats probably the least I ever faced.Jets coach Paul Maurice took the blame for not preparing his team better.I didnt see it coming. I couldnt make enough adjustments to make a change, couldnt hide people on the ice to keep them off the minus-sheet, he said. Im not looking at that room. Im looking at what I did to get them ready. It obviously wasnt enough.Matt Beleskey and Tim Schaller also scored for the Bruins, who won for the eighth time in 11 games.Adam Lowry scored for Winnipeg, and Michael Hutchinson made 34 saves. The Jets were outshot 38-12 while losing in regulation for only the second time in their last seven games.I think were taking a lot of pride in defending well, Boston coach Claude Julien said.Winnipegs players talked about movingg on from the loss. Brian Westbrook Jersey. It was just one of those nights, Hutchinson said. Every team is going to have them in an 82-game season.The Bruins dominated play for most of the opening period and a half, but held just a 1-0 lead despite a 20-4 advantage in shots on goal until Marchand made it 2-0 at 11:37 of the second.The winger collected a loose puck along the left boards near the Jets blue line, broke in alone and shifted around Hutchinson before tucking a backhander into the net.With the Bruins on a two-man advantage, Bergeron one-timed David Krejcis pass from the left circle, with the puck sneaking between Hutchinson and the near post to make it 3-0 at 17:00.Beleskeys goal gave Boston a 1-0 lead 2:01 into the second. He one-timed defenseman Joe Morrows pass into the net from near the left faceoff circle.Game notes Boston needs one goal to join Montreal as the only NHL franchises with 20,000. ...
