CHARLOTTE, N. Jack Wilshere Arsenal Jersey .C. -- D.J. Augustin says he has no hard feelings when it comes to the Charlotte
Bobcats -- even though they let him walk in free agency after the 2012 season.
"Just a business," Augustin said with a smile. He sure took care of business
Saturday night. Augustin played like a man with something prove, breaking open a
close game by scoring 15 of his 28 points in the fourth quarter to help the
Chicago Bulls hold off the Charlotte Bobcats 89-87 and get back above .500. The
Bulls (22-21) have won 10 of their last 13 games. Augustin hit 4 of 5 shots from
the field in the fourth quarter, including three 3-pointers. It was the third
time in the last four games Augustin has scored at least 27 points. Augustin was
drafted by the Bobcats in 2008 and spent four seasons in Charlotte before the
Bobcats decided to go with Kemba Walker as their starting point guard. "Its
always fun playing against your old team," Augustin said. "Im with the Bulls now
and that is all that matters." Augustin spent time with Indiana and Toronto last
season before joining the Bulls this past off-season. Chicago coach Tom
Thibodeau called the 6-foot Augustin a "huge pickup." "We had a need and he had
a need as well," Thibodeau said. "It was good for him and its been great for us
and hes played better and better. He was ready when this opportunity came
around. Its not only his individual performance, but what hes doing for our
team." Joakim Noah added 11 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists for the Bulls,
who have won 10 of their last 11 against the Bobcats. Taj Gibson had 13 points
and seven rebounds, while Mike Dunleavy had 12 points and eight rebounds.
Al Jefferson continued his hot play for the Bobcats (19-27) with 32 points and
13 rebounds. It was his ninth straight 20-point game. "Nobody is playing better
than Al over the last eight or nine games," Bobcats coach Steve Clifford said.
Jefferson said the discomfort from the ankle he sprained in the preseason is
starting to subside. "At the beginning of the season I wasnt healthy," Jefferson
said. "My ankle is feeling really good and Im not surprised how Im playing. I
know I can play at a very high level when Im 100 per cent." But the Bobcats
arent getting much production from other positions with Walker still out with an
ankle injury. The starting frontcourt of Ramon Sessions and Gerald Henderson was
a combined 9 of 26 from the field. "They double-teamed me and did a good job of
keeping the ball out of my hands. So tonight, Kemba would have been needed,"
Jefferson said. "But its an opportunity for some other guys to step up and make
a name for themselves." Chicago came in having defeated the Bobcats by an
average of 27.5 points in the last four meetings in Charlotte, but this one was
close throughout the first three quarters with 14 lead changes and neither team
leading by more than six points. The Bulls were up 55-54 going into the final
period and quickly extended that lead to 11 sparked by eight quick points from
Augustin and six from Tony Snell. The lead would get to 12 before a frantic
Bobcats comeback in the final minute, with Jannero Pargo knocking down a
26-footer with 3.4 seconds left to cut the lead to three. But Augustin made two
free throws to seal the win. Jefferson hit a one-handed heave from just beyond
half court as time expired, although it wouldnt matter. Chicago surrendered 112
point to the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday night -- the second-most theyve
allowed this season -- but the leagues second-best defence returned to form
against the Bobcats. They held Charlotte to 42 per cent shooting after allowing
the Clippers to beat them with 59.3 per cent shooting. "We get knocked down but
we always get back up and keep fighting," Augustin said. "That is the motto of
our team." NOTES: Walker missed his fourth straight game with an ankle injury.
... Carlos Boozer has scored in double digits in nine straight games for the
Bulls. ... Sessions had 11 assists for the Bobcats. ... The Bobcats had been
outrebounded by 22 in the first two meetings, but held a 45-41 edge on the
boards this time. Olivier Giroud Jersey . -- Sami Salo joked that as the shootout went on and on, one thing went through his mind: "Youve got
to tie up your skates. Gabriel Jersey . In a matchup of teams battling head-to-head for the final playoff spot in Major League Soccers Western

Saturday night.ORLANDO, Fla. -- Matt Every is finally a winner on the PGA Tour,
and hes still not sure how it happened. He was nine shots behind Masters
champion Adam Scott going into the weekend at Bay Hill. He was still four back
of the Australian he referred to as a "stud" going into the final round Sunday
at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Every figured even par over the last three
holes would do the trick. He made two bogeys. Even after a hearty handshake from
the tournament host and a shiny trophy an arms length away from, Every summed up
this wild day with just the right words. "I ... I ... I cant believe I won," he
said. "I just ... I really cant." The tee shot that he feared might be
out-of-bounds on No. 9 somehow bounced along a cart path and led to an unlikely
birdie. He surged to a three-shot lead when Scotts touch with the putter
vanished. Even with two bogeys on the last three holes -- he missed a 4-foot par
putt on the 18th -- Every still closed with a 2-under 70. The last bogey made
him sweat out the finish. Keegan Bradley, who birdied the 16th and 17th holes,
had a 30-foot birdie putt on the 18th that would have forced a playoff. It was
similar to the putt Tiger Woods has made so often to win at Bay Hill. Bradleys
putt stayed left of the hole, and he finished one shot behind. Every finished at
13-under 275, one shot ahead of Bradley, who needed two late birdies for a 72.
Scott was third. David Hearn (74) of Brantford, Ont., finished in a tie for 52nd
at 1-over par. In his 92nd start as a pro on the PGA Tour, Every finally won at
just the right time and just the right place. The 30-year-old who grew up 90
minutes away in Daytona Beach used to come to Bay Hill as a kid to watch the
tournament. And he beat the Masters champion to earn his own spot in the Masters
next month. "Being close to winning out here, it can be kind of discouraging
because if you dont win, you just wonder if its ever going to happen," Every
said. "And sometimes you tell yourself, Well, maybe its meant to be somewhere
else, somewhere better. I dont see how it could get much better than this --
being so close to where I grew up and all the fans out there that were cheering
me on. It was awesome." It was a nightmare for Scott. He shattered the Bay Hill
record by taking a seven-shot lead after 36 holes and still led by three shots
over Bradley going into Sunday. His putting stroke betrayed him. Scott made only
five bogeys over 54 holes. He made five on Sunday alone. And he didnt make a
birdie over the last 14 holes for a 76. "t;Im annoyed that I didnt do better
today," Scott said. Kieran Gibbs Jersey. "Sometimes youve got to be hard on yourself. Sometimes you dont. And I think I was getting into a really
good spot, and an opportunity here to run away with an event and really take a
lot of confidence. Im taking confidence anyway, from just some good play. But
some opportunities youve got to take." Cocky by nature, Every choked back tears
when he realized he had won. "Its hard," he said, stopping to compose himself.
"Its tough, man. You just never know if its going to happen. You get there so
many times. Its nice to get it done." He made it hard on himself. Every had a
three-shot lead on the par-5 16th hole -- the easiest at Bay Hill -- when he
drove into the woods, hit a tree trying to pitch out, laid up short of the water
to play it safe and had to grind out a bogey. Scott, playing in the final group
behind him, drilled 6-iron to 20 feet for an eagle putt that would have tied him
for the lead. He three-putted for par. It was the second time in six tournaments
that Scott lost a big lead on the last day. He had a four-shot advantage in the
Australian Open and lost on the final hole to Rory McIlroy. This time, he didnt
even have a realistic chance playing the 18th. "I really think the putting has
let me down on both of those occasions," Scott said. "Today was a bit shaky. But
this course was asking a lot of everyone today, and my short game just wasnt
there. So that needs to be tightened up and probably shows that I need to do a
bit more work on it to hold up under the pressure." Scott finished alone in
third. He had to win Bay Hill to reach No. 1 in the world ranking when he
arrived at Augusta National. Now, the No. 1 spot that Woods has held for the
last year will be up for grabs at the Masters among Woods, Scott and
Henrik Stenson, who tied for fifth at Bay Hill. Until Sunday, about the only
time Every made news on the PGA Tour was when he was arrested and jailed on a
misdemeanour drug possession charge at the 2010 John Deere Classic after agents
were called to a casino hotel because of a strong odour of marijuana coming from
the room he was in. Every paid the price with a three-month suspension that kept
him from retaining his PGA Tour card. He once said earning his card back was his
greatest achievement, though that sure takes a seat back to his win at Bay Hill.
"Its just cool that I can say that I won on the PGA Tour," Every said. "But I
always felt like my game was plenty good enough to win out here." Wholesale Jerseys China ' ' '
