    New Orleans, LA (SportsNetwork.com) – Eric Gordon scored a season-high 28 points to lift the New Orleans Pelicans to a 108-103 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday. Ryan Anderson netted 24 points and went 5-of-11 from 3-point range, while Alexis Ajinca supplied 17 points and nine rebounds off the bench and Tyreke Evans had 11 points and 12 assists for the Pelicans, who have won five of their last six games. Its good to be able to win like that in front of our crowd, New Orleans head coach Monty Williams said. We got hot and our defense was effective. Chris Paul finished with 24 points, Blake Griffin scored 19 and DeAndre Jordan contributed 12 points and 15 rebounds for the Clippers, who had their six-game winning streak come to an end. New Orleans opened the second half on an 11-2 run that contained two Gordon treys. Anderson scored 14 points during the third quarter as New Orleans led 88-76 heading into the final stanza. The Clippers scored six straight points early in the fourth, but Ajincas dunk and three-point play restored the Pelicans lead to 95-82 with 7:38 to go. Paul scored 10 points during a 12-0 swing to get Los Angeles within 95-94 with 5:07 remaining. With under two minutes to play, Gordon knocked down a turnaround fadeaway shot and Dante Cunningham threw down a dunk to give the Pelicans a six-point lead and seal the win. Quincy Pondexter made a jumper and a 3-pointer before Jamal Crawford beat the buzzer with a bank shot as the Pelicans led 28-26 after the first quarter. Anderson bookended a 9-2 spurt with treys to give New Orleans a 47-41 with 4:24 to play in the first half, but Griffin responded with four points during an 8-0 run to put the Clippers in front. After New Orleans went ahead on a pair of Gordon free throws with under a minute to play, Paul drove through the lane for a layup with 3.2 seconds left and Los Angeles held a 54-53 advantage at the break.

Justin Faulk Jersey. — The Oakland Raiders expect to have starting right tackle Tony Pashos back for Sundays game against the Houston Texans.FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Rex Ryan bolted out of his office the moment he heard Ed Reed was cut. He wanted to make sure general manager John Idzik knew one of his favourite players was available for the New York Jets to pursue. “Its only a rumour that I pulled a hamstring,” Ryan said, grinning. “Thats not true.” The Jets signed the nine-time Pro Bowl safety Thursday, bringing one of the NFLs greatest playmaking defensive players to a secondary on a defence that ranks 24th against the pass. The 35-year-old Reed was released Tuesday by Houston, cleared waivers Wednesday and joined less than 24 hours later. “John had a big smile on his face,” Ryan said about the Jets GM. “I think he anticipated it, but he had already beaten me to the punch. He had already set it in motion with our scouts.” Reed joined his new Jets teammates on the practice field wearing a green No. 22 jersey; his familiar No. 20 is currently worn by cornerback Kyle Wilson. Reed laughed when he was asked if he thinks hes got anything left. “I dont think Id be here if they didnt think that,” he said after his first practice with the Jets. “I know what I know. I know how I feel and I know what Ive put in my off-season workouts. Im ready to go. Youll see. “You guys can be the judge of it.” The Jets released outside linebacker Ricky Sapp to make room on the roster for Reed. Ryan and defensive co-ordinator Dennis Thurman coached Reed for eight years in Baltimore. Reed has always been a favourite of Ryan, who once labeled him the greatest safety to play the game. While his physical skills no longer make him one of the games elite players, Reed will be able to serve as a leader in the secondary and help bring along young safeties Antonio Allen, Jaiquawn Jarrett and Josh Bush. “This had nothing to do with sentiment,” Ryan said. “We believe that Ed will be a great signing for us and hes going to help this football team, without question.” Reed said New England also showed interest, as well as one other team, but everything seemed right about coming to the Jets. “It just fits,” he said. “I know the system. Rex was like, Go ahead and lets see what youve got.” The fact that the Jets (5-4) are in the playoff hunt was also a plus. “Thats a huge factor,” Reed said. “It was a huge factor in playing this year, in general, being with a team that was going to contend and be in the playoffs.” Theres a good chance Reed will be ready to play Sunday at Buffalo, at least in certain situations, and it is a low-risk, high-reward situation for thee Jets.dddddddddddd. “Weve had some issues with the deep ball,” Ryan said. “Let them throw it there now.” Reed would like to start, of course, but added that hes fine with whatever the coaches want him to do, including playing in dime packages or special teams. “They had a good thing going before I came,” Reed said. “I dont plan on rocking the boat.” That was a bit of an issue in Houston, as Reed missed the Texans first two games after off-season hip surgery and was relegated to a backup role, making just 16 tackles with no interceptions. He was unhappy about not starting after signing a three-year, $15 million deal in the off-season following 11 years in Baltimore. Reed also criticized the team for being outplayed and outcoached after the Texans seventh straight loss last Sunday. “To put it simple for you,” Reed said, “it wasnt a good fit.” Texans defensive co-ordinator Wade Phillips said Thursday that Reeds criticism was not why he was released, but rather because the teams younger players were performing well and Reed wasnt getting a lot of playing time. Phillips laughed when he was asked if the Texans thought they were going to get more out of Reed when they signed him. “Yeah, I think thats probably an understatement,” Phillips said. “We all thought he was going to be J.J. Watt in the secondary. And things didnt work out that way.” Reed, who won a Super Bowl last season with the Ravens, was the NFLs top defensive player in 2004. In 11-plus seasons, the ball-hawking Reed has 61 interceptions, including seven returned for touchdowns. Hes a five-time first-team All-Pro who also holds the NFL record with 1,541 yards on interception returns. His nine career post-season interceptions, including one in the Ravens Super Bowl win, tie him for the league mark. Reed said recent criticism of him has come as a result of being held to higher standards than most safeties. “I created that monster, and Ive been blessed to create that monster,” he said. “I love it.” Reed had a whirlwind 24 hours, which began with him working out in Georgia when he cleared waivers around 4 p.m. Wednesday. Less than six hours later, he was on a plane to New Jersey. “We had him at hello,” Thurman said. Reed met with Idzik before going to bed around 2:30 a.m., and then heading back to the facility after a few hours of sleep. “We put him in some defences just to see what he could remember with his partner (Dawan) Landry out there,” Ryan said. “It was like, Whoa, here we go. “It was like he hadnt missed a beat.” Wholesale Jerseys ‘ ‘ ‘
