    SALT LAKE CITY - After Arron Afflalo was ejected, Ty Lawson looked around and wondered who was going to score down the stretch. [b]Jesse Lingard Jersey[/b] .I told the guys that somebodys got to step up, Lawson said.In the end, it was Lawson who stepped into the void and continued Denvers hot streak.Lawson had 15 points and made a double-pump jumper to beat the shot clock with 29.6 seconds left, boosting the Nuggets over the Utah Jazz 103-101 in a charged atmosphere Monday night.I had to rush the shot a little bit but I got Trey Burke in the air and I thought I got fouled, but I got that lucky roll, Lawson said.The game heated up after Afflalo was ejected in the fourth quarter and the Jazz stormed back from a 22-point deficit to tie the game in the final minutes.Lawson, who also had 12 assists, made the game-winner from the left wing between two Jazz defenders.Its nice to finally have some breaks go our way. Those are the kinds of things that we were getting hit with (early in the season), Denver coach Brian Shaw.Gordon Haywards shot was blocked and Burke missed a potential go-ahead 3-pointer on the other end before Darrell Arthur clinched the game with two free throws with 4.2 seconds remaining. Alec Burks dunk at the buzzer completing the scoring.Wilson Chandler scored 15, Afflalo had 14 and Arthur added 12 for the Nuggets, who have won eight of their last 10 games.Hayward scored 25 points, Burks had 22 and Burke chipped in 18, but Utahs losing streak hit six games -- the longest skid since March 10-19 last season.Trailing 90-86, Burks was driving full-speed to the basket midway through the fourth quarter when Afflalo clotheslined the Jazz guard. The hard foul sparked a shoving match with Enes Kanter at the centre of it all protecting Burks, who was already nursing a sore shoulder.After a lengthy officials conference, Afflalo was ejected for a flagrant-two foul for hitting Burks in the side of the head. Afflalo and Burks pointed at each other and exchanged words before he left the court.I committed a hard foul but I didnt do it intentionally. It was just unfortunate with everything that happened afterward, Afflalo said.The Nuggets were rolling along with an 80-67 lead late in the third quarter before the Jazz extended their defence and ran at every opportunity. Utah caught Denver at 83-83 on a thunderous alley-oop jam by Rudy Gobert.Denver led 24-23 late in the first quarter before going on a 22-4 run. Darrell Arthur had two 3-pointers to fuel the run and then J.J. Hickson capped the surge with a three-point play to make it 46-27 with 6:45 before halftime.We were a totally different team in the second half. We showed what we are capable of doing, Burks said.Without defensive anchor Derrick Favours, who missed the game with flu-like symptoms, the Jazz looked powerless to stop the Nuggets forays to the basket until Gobert asserted himself and sparked the Jazz comeback.Denvers resurgence has been based on improved defence. The Nuggets improved to 7-0 when holding opponents to 101 points or less and appear to be an entirely different team than the one that lost six straight in early November.Were defending better, no doubt, Shaw said.___TIP-INSNuggets: Guard Randy Foye was diagnosed with a right quad tear earlier Monday and may miss a few weeks. ... The Nuggets reserves outscored the Jazz bench 29-4 in the first half and 38-13 for the game. . Denver won the opening tip and Lawson immediately passed to Faried for a tone-setting dunk.Jazz: Favours, who had played in every game this season and averages 15.9 points and 8.6 rebounds, left Mondays shootaround with a cold that worsened as the day progressed. . Trainer Gary Briggs was assessed a technical foul as he ran onto the court during the fracas to attend to Burks before time was called.NO TOUGH GUY ACTI was just trying to go for a block. I wasnt trying to be a tough guy, Afflalo said. Im anticipating getting to play tomorrow. Well see. Hopefully, they make the right call. But I do apologize for that, though, that hard foul.UP NEXTNuggets: Host Portland on Tuesday.Jazz: Host Toronto on Wednesday. [b]Jack Wilshere Jersey[/b] . Although head coach Randy Carlyle jokingly wondered how much actual training Bolland got done while in London. "I dont know how much training goes on when you go back to the junior team that you played for so I wouldnt read too much into that," laughed Carlyle after the Maple Leafs were put through an up-tempo practice that concluded with a 10-minute bag skate on Thursday. [b]Custom England Jerseys[/b] .Y. -- When the New York Islanders lead was cut in half in the opening minute of the third period, the sense of impending doom began wafting through Nassau Coliseum.Regina, SK - The first week of the 2014 CFL regular season draws to a close tonight when the defending Grey Cup Champion Saskatchewan Roughriders take the field against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats at Mosaic Stadium. Watch the action live on TSN and TSN GO at 7pm et/4pm pt. This is a replay of the 101st Grey Cup from November, when the Roughriders delivered a convincing 45-23 thrashing of Hamilton in front of nearly 45,000 fans. The Riders, led by head coach Corey Chamblin, would like nothing more than to get off to the same type of start that they had a year ago when they rattled off five straight victories and captured eight of the first nine outings overall. The team did stumble slightly down the stretch with back-to-back defeats to close out the regular season and suffered a four-game slide during the month of September, but the club proved to be resilient, finishing 11-7 overall, but taking home the Grey Cup when all was said and done. The third-leading passer in terms of yards last season with 4,154, Darian Durant is back under center for Saskatchewan as it begins the quest for back- to-back titles, something that has happened only once in the last 15 years. Durant, who has been with the Riders for his entire nine-year CFL career, tossed a personal best 31 touchdowns and finished with an efficiency rating of 95.7. In 2013, Durant had a trio of top-notch receivers who he relied heavily on, but one of those, Weston Dressler has since signed with the Kansas City Chiefs of the NFL, leaving Chris Getzlaf and Taj Smith to carry more of the load this time around. All three posted at least 1,000 yards through the air, with Dressler leading the way with nine touchdowns. However, Getzlaf and Smith both landed in the end zone seven times and the former averaged a hefty 16.6 yards per catch. Another major change for the Riders is the departure of running back Kory Sheets, the most valuable player of the Grey Cup, as he signed with the NFLs Oakland Raiders. Sheets was second in the league with 1,598 yards and tied for the lead with 12 rushing scores, which means theres a huge void to be filled in the backfield for the club. A couple of newcomers, Keith Toston and Anthony Allen will be tasked with producing on the ground moving forward. Saskatchewan has to be pleased with the fact that they owned the toughest scoring defense in the CFL a year ago, allowing only 22.1 ppg, but that wont be easy to duplicaate after losing Alex Hall. [b]Kyle Walker Jersey[/b]. . The defensive lineman placed second in the league with 16 sacks, but like many successful CFL performers, he too has latched on with an NFL squad (the Carolina Panthers) for the time being. On other side, the Tiger-Cats were the opposite of Saskatchewan through the first month of last season, winning just a single game in five tries. But the group did finish strong with four wins in five opportunities before, putting up a 10-8 mark, before defeating Montreal and Toronto in the playoffs. Kent Austin, the head coach, general manager and vice president of football operations for Hamilton, does have a major issue to clear up this time around with respect to his quarterback. Last year he watched Henry Burris tear up defenses for a league-best 4,927 yards, but this time around he will have to find a leader in either Zach Collaros, Dan LeFevour or Jeremiah Masoli. Collaros has the most experience of the three after spending a couple of years with Toronto, but he is still a major work in progress. LeFevour finished with almost as many rushing yards (317) as passing (394) with the Cats last year while Masoli attempted a grand total of just two passes for the program in 2013. At least for this week, it doesnt help that receiver Andy Fantuz is on the injured list, because he was one of the top pass catchers in the game with 65 grabs for 896 yards. That leaves Bakari Grant as the primary focus down the field after he posted 69 receptions for 947 yards, but a mere two touchdowns a year ago. Running back C.J. Gable is capable of adding another dimension to the offense, having gained 782 yards and scored seven times on 130 carries in his first CFL campaign, but the squad will have to be careful not to run him into the ground too early. From a defensive perspective, there is plenty of work to be done for the Tiger-Cats after they finished with a minus-13 in the turnover department. The squad logged just 14 interceptions, second-fewest behind only a hapless Winnipeg group, which they turned into a league-low 142 return yards. Hamilton was also last in the CFL in sacks with just 35. Stretching back to 1961 and focusing only on games that took place during the regular season, Saskatchewan holds a slight advantage in the series with the Cats at 42-38-4. The Riders have taken four of the last five and a startling 17 of the last 20 matchups with Hamilton.
