good memories here than bad ones.

  • VANCOUVER -- Atsuko Tanaka, Alexandra Pretorius and Taylor Henrich were named to Canadas Olympic womens ski jumping team Sunday ahead of the sports Winter Games debut next month. Zach Banner Jersey . The three Calgary natives will compete after the sport was skipped by the Vancouver Games in 2010 but later included on the program for Sochi, Russia. The fight to include womens ski jumping prior to Vancouver went to the courts only to have the Supreme Court of Canada rule against the athletes appeal in 2009. "I have lost count of how many jumps I have done leading up to this point," said Tanaka. "But every jump got me one step closer to my goal and that was to make the Sochi 2014 Canadian Olympic team and I couldnt be more proud to represent my country in Russia." Mackenzie Boyd-Clowes, Dusty Korek, Trevor Morrice and Matthew Rowley will represent the mens side for Canada. The womens ski jumping competition begins Feb. 11 at the RusSki Gorki Jumping Center. The mens qualification round begins Feb. 8. Tarell Basham Youth Jersey . -- The guys in green raced off the court and into the locker room where they danced and sang, compared whose shot was most likely to end up featured on "One Shining Moment," and checked Twitter to see who was giving them a shoutout. Marlon Mack Youth Jersey . The visitors missed a host of good chances to win the game, and were left to rue substitute Ivo Ilicevics strike against the crossbar in the 86th minute, when he only had the goalkeeper to beat.CHICAGO - The Orlando Magic used their offence to earn a sorely needed win. Nikola Vucevic and Victor Oladipo each played a big role.Vucevic had 33 points and 11 rebounds, and the Magic snapped a six-game losing streak with a 121-114 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Monday night.Orlando (14-27) shot a season-high 59 per cent from the field in its first win in Chicago since an 83-82 victory on Dec. 16, 2013. The Magic had lost three in a row and 12 of 15 against the Bulls since the start of the 2010-11 season.Oladipo also scored 33 points in Orlandos highest scoring game of the season, and rookie Elfrid Payton added 10 points and seven assists.I guess the worm turned, said Magic coach Jacque Vaughn, whose team failed to score more than 98 points in any game during the losing streak. We were very aggressive with our approach. Our pace was great.Vucevic was 16 for 24 from the field in his NBA-best 23rd double-double of the season. The terrific performance for the 7-foot centre included a drive and left-handed dunk over forward Pau Gasol late in third period.I just wanted to get to the rim and finish strong, Vucevic said. I got up high enough and I wanted to dunk it. I dont do it very often, so Im sure they were surprised.The Bulls (26-13) lost for the seventh time against teams currently with sub-500 records. Five of those losses were at home.Part of it is concentration, playing with a sense of urgency and an edge, just allowing teams to take off early in the game and having to fight back, Gasol said.While the Bulls have displayed a more efficient offence this season, coach Tom Thibodeau thinks they often lose sight of what makes them a playoff contender.If were just going to try to outscore people, were not going anywhere, Thibodeau said. I know what doesnt work. Were going to have to bring a lot of intensity, and the only way to bring more intensity is to work harder. Its really that simple.Gasol paced Chicago with 28 points and 14 rebounds, and Derrick Rose had 18 points and seven assists. Jimmy Butler finished with 17 points.Rose was 8 for 15 from the field in his return to the lineup after missing Saturday nights 95-87 victory overr Milwaukee with left knee soreness. Quincy Wilson Jersey. You can tell (Thibodeau) is frustrated, which he has every right to be, Rose said. I wouldnt say the guys are frustrated, but its irritating to lose these games and make these games harder than they (should be).Orlando carried a 93-78 lead into the fourth quarter, but managed only one free throw in the next 3 1/2 minutes. Reserves Taj Gibson and Nikola Mirotic led a Chicago comeback that got the Bulls within three with 2:16 to play. But Joakim Noah missed two free throws for Chicago and Oladipo followed with a layup.The Magic jumped to a 63-55 halftime lead. They shot 61 per cent in each of the first two quarters against the usually stout Bulls, who had ranked fourth in the NBA in field-goal percentage defence.Chicago had no answer for Vucevic, who had 12 points, six rebounds and three assists in the first half. Orlando received a considerable boost from its bench, which scored 25 points in that span.OFF BY A HAIRIt was Roses best shooting game since he was 7 for 14 from the field in a 113-93 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Christmas. He shot 28 per cent (36 for 129) in his previous seven games.I got a new haircut, so who knows? he said when asked about the turnaround. Ive just been missing shots. It got nothin to do with (health). No excuses. I just been missing shots.TIP-INSMagic: Ex-Bulls G Ben Gordon returned to Chicago, where he spent the first five seasons of his career. Played in some big games, hit some big shots, said Gordon, who still has friends and family in the area. Ive got a lot more good memories here than bad ones. ... Evan Fournier (sprained right knee), forward Aaron Gordon (fractured left foot) and Tobias Harris (sprained left ankle) were not available.Bulls: F Mike Dunleavy reported improvement in his sore right ankle but still had not resumed running exercises.
