Rashan Gary Packers Jersey .Kevin Love, who was acquired by Cleveland a month after James left the Heat to return to Ohio, finished with 25 points in an entertaining game in the beachfront city that will host the 2016 Olympics.Chris Bosh led Miami with 19 points. The Cavaliers are 2-0 in the preseason and the Heat fell to 0-3.James shook hands with the Heat starters at the tipoff, but made little eye contact. James said in practices in Rio there was no bad blood, which was confirmed by former teammates Dwyane Wade and Bosh.Hes on another team, Bosh said Friday. I think hed understand that. I understand that. Well have plenty of time to talk in the summer, and thats how it is now.The real tension between the Heat and Cavs comes on Dec. 25, when the teams meet for the first time in the regular season.James struggled in the first half and played little after that, but his new team carried him. He finished 2 of 8 from the field and 3 of 7 from the free throw line, though did have eight assists.According to a report this week by Forbes, James overtook Tiger Woods as the most marketable athlete in the world.The HSBC Arena, which will be used for gymnastics during the Olympics, had a sold-out crowd of 15,411, with the top ticket advertised at $350 and green and yellow Brazilian flags adding to the colour.Who knows where this league will be 20, 25 years from now, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. In the last six years since Ive been the head coach weve been to England, France, China and Rio with tremendous experiences. Whether or not that happens on a regular basis — in the regular season — I dont know.Wade is also a booster of the NBAs global profile.The NBA has done an unbelievable job of growing the game — the players as well — of making this game global, Wade said. We all benefit from it.It was the Cavaliers 32-year-old Brazilian centre Anderson Varejao who got the loudest applause, upstaging James when the teams were introduced. Varejao left Brazil at 19 to begin playing abroad.Ive been waiting my entire life for this, Varejao said from an on-court microphone. I hope you enjoy it.They did.James missed the first shot of the game, a fall-away jumper from the left wing. Moments later Varejao scored the first points of the game on the Cavs second trip down the floor. He finished the first quarter with eight points as the Cavs led 27-21.Miami trailed by 20 points, but rallied against the Cavs reserves to tie it at 105 and force overtime. Cleveland stretched the lead to 122-119 on two free throws by Joe Harris with 13 seconds left. Miamis Shabazz Napier missed two 3-point attempts in the final seconds.The Cavs played without guard Kyrie Irving, who sprained his right ankle before the team left the United States.___Stephen Wade on Twitter: Elgton Jenkins Youth Jersey . - Even with a new coach, the Denver Nuggets still love to push the basketball. Ray Nitschke Jersey . Anor had not scored since getting his first two goals of the season vs. Philadelphia on March 22 but struck with laser precision from distance in the 56th and 75th minutes. Montreal (3-10-5) lost its third straight and Impact coach Frank Klopas said it literally was a case of his players not stepping up. ... rs-Jersey/ . -- Maple Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf has been suspended two games for his hit from behind on Kevan Miller of the Bruins.Patrick Chan will know exactly where he stands when he takes to the ice for the mens free skate Friday evening at the Iceberg Skating Palace, although he may want to block out the crowd reaction. Thats because the Toronto native will once again follow Japanese dynamo Yuzuru Hanyu, who leads after the short program in Sochi. The 23-year-old Canadian will skate fourth, immediately follow Hanyu. In the short program, Chan competed two skaters after his 19-year-old rival. Chan will skate to The Four Seasons by Vivaldi in the hopes of making up a deficit of 3.93 points. Javier Fernandez of Spain, currently sitting in third place, will be the first skater to hit the ice in the final group of six. Like Hanyu, Fernandez is coached by Canadian Brian Orser, the 1988 Olympic silver medallist. Fernandez is followed by Daisuke Takahashi. The former world champion and 22010 Olympic bronze medallist from Japan is in fourth place. Reggie White Jersey. The random draw in the Olympic setup has resulted in the regrettable result that the fifth- and sixth-place skaters end the show. Those competitors are Peter Liebers of Germany and Jason Brown of the United States. While they have a chance at reaching the podium, its highly unlikely they could make up enough ground to win the competition. Many figure skating observers believed veteran Brian Joubert should have been in the final grouping on the basis of a strong short program, but the Frenchman will instead be near the beginning of the penultimate group. Kevin Reynolds of Coquitlam, B.C. will be up 12th in the free skate, which gets underway at 10 a.m. ET. Reynolds gamely persevered after hitting the deck twice in the short, leading to a 17th-place showing.
