The Wolves shot just 39 percent, and their 16 turnovers led to 22 points for the Bucks.

Giannis Antetokounmpo had 11 points and nine rebounds, and Jerryd Bayless scored 13 for Milwaukee.

Karl-Anthony Towns had eight points and 10 rebounds for Minnesota but shot just 4 of 17. Zach LaVine went 3 for 9 and the Wolves were 3 of 14 on 3-pointers in falling to 5-13 at home.

Mayo picked up a technical foul from Pat Fraher after arguing for a foul call on a drive to the basket. As the game went to break, referee Jason Phillips gave Mayo another technical, which prompted the ejection. Mayo spun back toward the officiating crew wildly, and coaches Eric Hughes and Joe Prunty had to try to restrain him by yanking on his jersey.

Mayo made several more efforts to get back onto the court and finally was forced down the tunnel to the locker room by a security official. It was the latest outburst from Mayo, who got into a heated confrontation with Kings center DeMarcus Cousins in a back hallway this season.

Mayo’s exit did seem to wake up the Bucks cheap nba jerseys after a dreadful start to the game. They missed their first 11 shots, trailed by 17 only 9 minutes in and didn’t make a field goal until 3:18 remained in the first quarter, the longest drought to start a game since the New Orleans Hornets went 9:18 against Orlando in 2006.

But after cheap reversible basketball jerseys going 3 for 17 in the first quarter, the Bucks went 10 for 17 in the second to climb back into it.

They opened the fourth period with an 11-0 surge to take an 83-70 lead and never looked back.

TIP-INS

Bucks: Milwaukee shot 8 for 16 from 3-point range. … Minneapolis native Rashad Vaughn had five points in 16 minutes.

”Everyone came in focused tonight, the level of concentration was high. Winning is winning,” Len said. ”We had 14 stops in a row. That got us going.”

Elfrid Payton had 19 pints and 11 assists for Orlando, which shot 35 percent against the NBA’s bottom-ranked team in defensive field-goal percentage.

”They were much more physical than us and we never did respond,” Magic coach Scott Skiles said. ”Tyson (Chandler), Len, (P.J.) Tucker, Price – those guys, from a physical standpoint, dominated us. It is very disappointing. It is a game we had to have.”

Mirza Teletovic hit two 3-pointers late in the first half to help the wholesale nba jerseys Suns take an eight-point lead, the largest of the half for either team.

When Phoenix scored the first nine points of the second half, Skiles replaced all five of his starters, but it didn’t help. Phoenix scored seven more points before Payton scored on a layup with 5:24 left in the third quarter, ending a stretch of 14 straight missed shots by Orlando.

By then the Suns had taken a 24-point lead.

”We locked in on every possession,” said Suns coach Earl Watson, who replaced Jeff Hornacek on Feb. 1. ”Tonight what you saw was a glimpse of what we envision being. This wholesale basketball jerseys was just one step.”

Rookie Mario Hezonja sparked a Magic rally with a long jumper and a couple of 3-pointers, but they could get no closer than 13. View gallery ORLANDO, FL – MARCH 4: Alex Len #21 of the Phoenix Suns Jerseys prepares to shoot a free throw against the O …

TIP-INS

Suns: Price played almost 45 minutes. … The Suns scored half of their 44 second-half points from the foul line. … The 7-foot-1 Len, who averages 8.4 points, scored in double figures for the seventh straight game.

Magic: G Victor Oladipo was out with a lower back contusion. The Magic are 1-4 without Oladipo this season. … Payton had 13 points and four assists in the first quarter, figuring in 22 of the team’s 29 points. . . . The Magic have lost three straight to the Suns, including both meetings this season.

COULD BE WORSE

The Suns have won only twice under Watson but he put it wholesale basketball jerseys in perspective: ”I was in the D League last year taking six-hour bus rides. This is a different deal for me; I’m excited to fly on a plane again from city to city.”

At 27, Durant becoming 1 of the ‘old’ guys in NBA

cheap nba jersey

Oklahoma City star Kevin Durant plays the Minnesota Timberwolves Jerseys three times in January, giving him three opportunities to meet up with Kevin Garnett, one of Durant’s idols when he was growing up in the Washington, D.C. area.

Durant has often spoke about how he looked up to Garnett as a kid and tried to pattern some of his game after the revolutionary power forward who made the jump straight from high school to the pros cheap nba jersey in 1995.

Now at the ripe old age of 27, Durant is becoming one of those players that a new generation of NBA players grew up aspiring to be. Karl-Anthony Towns, the No. 1 overall draft pick by the Timberwolves, once interviewed Durant as a teenager in high school in New Jersey.

”I’ve got a few guys I’ve been on since they were younger and they’re starting to get to college now and I look at their date of birth and it’s ’98, ’97,” Durant said this week, shaking his head. ”I’m like holy (cow), I’m almost 10 years older than these guys.”

It wasn’t that long ago that Durant and Russell Westbrook were the new kids on the block and appeared to be positioning the Thunder as the successor to San Antonio in the Western Conference. But injuries to Durant, Westbrook and Serge Ibaka, and an ill-fated trade of James Harden, have prevented the Thunder from a return trip to the NBA Finals after their first appearance in 2012.

Durant has returned with a vengeance this season wholesale jerseys, averaging 26.5 points, 7.7 rebounds and 4.4 assists while shooting 51.7 percent from the field, 40.4 percent on 3-pointers and 89.5 percent on free throws. The Thunder are 30-12 and seeded third in the West, and Durant thinks he has so much more left to give.

”I’m getting older but at the same time I feel like I’m still young, I’m still learning, I’m still trying to figure out who I am as a basketball player,” Durant said. ”And that’s the great part about it. I think that’s what I learned from guys like KG. He’s always striving to be better. This may be his last few years, but he’s not packing it in. That’s what I can learn.”

SINKING SUNS

The Phoenix Suns Jerseys have been a mess all season, and they may have reached rock bottom on a three-game trip last week. A 19-point loss at Indiana and a 14-point loss at Boston preceded a 30-point drubbing in Minnesota, where the Timberwolves had lost 13 cheap nba jersey of their previous 14 games and nine in a row. The skid dropped the Suns (13-29) into a tie with the Wolves for the fourth-worst record in the NBA and is the worst record at the halfway point for the Suns since their inaugural season in 1968-69.

”Effort should never be called into question,” guard Brandon Knight said. ”For myself and the rest of the guys and our younger guys, everybody has to do a better job of just making sure we’re ready to play every game.”

Things to watch this week:

MLK DAY: Martin Luther King Jr. Day is on Monday, a day the NBA has always embraced and celebrated. Ten games are scheduled, including an NBA Finals rematch with the Warriors visiting Cleveland and a night cap featuring the Rockets at the Clippers.

PARKER IS BACK: Spurs point guard Tony Parker wasn’t himself last year due in large part to a hamstring injury, and the Spurs were bounced in the first round of the playoffs in part because of that. Gregg Popovich says he is running the team as well as he ever has. And the Spurs (36-6) suddenly are just a half-game behind Golden State in the West.

SURGING SIXERS: The team that started the season 0-18 and 1-30 has won four times is 4-7 in its last 11 games. Jerry Colangelo for executive of the year!

GOBERT’S RETURN: The Utah Jazz Jerseys were 11th in the league in points allowed per 100 possessions (99.8) with Rudy Gobert anchoring the defense for the first month. In the 18 games he missed, they dropped to 23rd. Since the Stifle Tower’s return, they are giving up 98.1, sixth in the league.

STAT LINE OF THE WEEK: Jimmy Butler, Bulls: 53 points, 10 rebounds six assists in 49 minutes against the Sixers. The Bulls needed almost every one of those points to squeak out a four-point win against suddenly feisty Philly.
