    (SportsNetwork. Tracy Porter Jersey .com) - The Los Angeles Clippers have been dominant on this nine-game homestand and it will come to a close Sunday afternoon versus the Miami Heat at Staples Center. The Clippers are 6-2 on the stay and had an easy time with the Dallas Mavericks in Saturdays 120-100 triumph. Blake Griffin was 11-of-15 from the field en route to 22 points and Jamal Crawford scored 19. Chris Paul recorded his fourth straight double-double, posting 17 points and 13 assists for the Clippers, who made 52.3 percent of their shots and improved to 17-5 at home. Matt Barnes scored 18 points, J.J. Redick had 16 and DeAndre Jordan aided the cause with 13 points and 15 rebounds. We ran, got stops and tired them out, said Griffin. We all moved the ball and got easy shots. Hopefully we can build on it. Los Angeles is among the top teams in the NBA in scoring (106.8 ppg) and field goal percentage (47.4). The Clippers will visit Portland on Wednesday. Miami is only 27th in the league in scoring with 93.8 ppg and opened a 10-day, five-game western sojourn with Thursdays 99-83 loss to the Trail Blazers. Dwyane Wade scored 23 points and Chris Bosh added 18 for the Heat, who scored 35 points in the second half and shot just 37.7 percent for the game. The Blazers trailed 48-43 at halftime and opened the third quarter on a 17-3 run. The Heat eventually trimmed the deficit to 78-69, but the Blazers pulled away. Weve seen this movie before, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. Spoelstras squad has lost five of the last six games and dropped to 8-9 on the road this season. The Heat are 4-9 against teams from the Western Conference and will also make stops in Los Angeles, Golden State and Sacramento on the trek. Miami is winless in its last three road games. The Clippers defeated the Heat, 110-93, on Nov. 20 in South Beach and were led by Pauls 26 points and 12 assists. Griffin also scored 26 points and Bosh countered with 28 in that one for the Heat, who had their three-game win streak in this series stopped. LA has prevailed in five of the last six games as the host versus Miami. The Heat are 32-20 all-time against the Clippers (14-12 in LA).Mike Singletary Jersey .

Down 2-1 after Rick Nash scored on a penalty shot, the Oilers ran off four unanswered goals in the remainder of the second period on the way to a 6-3 victory on Sunday.ARLINGTON, Texas - Kendrys Morales slapped a line drive away from the Texas shift, landing it just inside the foul line in left field where the only person close to it was a security guard scrambling to get out of the way. A deft leap from the guard kept the ball in play and sent the Twins on their way to ending a 10-game road losing streak. Morales tiebreaking double in the top of the ninth off Texas closer Joakim Soria brought in pinch-runner Sam Fuld from first base in a 3-2 Minnesota victory Sunday. After the security guard dodged the ball with his right foot, the carom off a brick wall just missed his left foot as the ball rolled into shallow left field, a long way from Texas Michael Choice. A ground-rule double would have forced Fuld to stop at third instead of scoring easily, and Soria (1-3) struck out the final two hitters of the inning. "We got a couple of breaks, and we won the ballgame," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. Kyle Gibson (7-6) matched a career high by going eight innings and scattering eight hits. Glen Perkins struck out the side in the ninth for his 20th save in 23 chances. Robinson Chirinos had three hits for Texas, including his seventh homer of the season in the fifth inning for a 2-2 tie. Josh Willinghams second hit got the winning rally started with one out in the ninth before he was replaced by Fuld. The Twins had lost the first five games on a six-game road trip after winning four straight on a brief homestand. "It was a big game for us after a tough road trip," said Gibson, who had a 22-inning scoreless streak snapped when he allowed seven runs in just two innings to start the trip at the Los Angeles Angels. "All I did was try to give my team a chance to win and turn things around." Jorge Polanco, making his first major league start for Minnesota, had a tying double on a check-swing roller over the bag at third base in the third inning. The 20-year-old shortstop scored for a 2-1 lead on a single by Joe Mauer, who extended his hiitting streak to a season-high 10 games. Kevin White Jersey. "They did what they had to do to win the game," Rangers manager Ron Washington said. "We didnt. Even if it was check swings and all that stuff, thats baseball. You cant control what happens sometimes." Polanco also had a strong day defensively, helping turn three double plays and taking a hit way from Elvis Andrus on a one-hop smash to his left in the eighth inning. "The kid played great at shortstop," Gardenhire said. "He has good at-bats. Hes got things to learn, but hes doing just fine." The Rangers had runners at first and third with nobody out in the second and again with one out in the seventh but didnt score either time. Choice struck out ahead of Rougned Odors double-play grounder in the second, and Choice grounded into a double play to end the seventh. Texas right-hander Colby Lewis ended a streak of 13 straight starts without a quality start of at least six innings and three earned runs or fewer, which was tied for the major league record with Seattles Steve Trout from 1988. He gave up two runs in six innings and struck out eight. Lewis left in a 2-2 tie, remaining winless in seven career starts against the Twins. It was the second rough outing of the three-game series for Soria. He gave up four runs in the ninth inning of Texas 5-4 victory on Friday. The injury-riddled Rangers (37-44) hit the halfway mark of the season with their fewest wins since 2007 and are 14 games behind Oakland in the AL West. "Were just in a situation right now where weve got guys hurt and were going to go out there and compete," Lewis said. "Thats all Wash asks us to do." NOTES: Chris Parmelees single in the sixth inning gave him a career-best nine-game hitting streak. ... The Rangers won a home series for the first time since mid-April. They had gone winless in 10 straight series at home. ... Polanco is the first Minnesota player to start his career with two extra-base hits since Rich Becker in 1993. Cheap Jerseys ThrowbackWholesale NFL Hoodies Cheap NFL Womens Jerseys Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback China NFL Jerseys ' ' '
