Five Quick Thoughts for a Wednesday: 1. Air Max 97 Ultra 17 Rouge . KAWHI LEONARD & DANNY GREEN (Spurs): 44 points combined on 17-21 shooting in Game 3. Both were very assertive and set the tone in the first quarter. Brilliant! When these guys are playing the two-way game, the Spurs are a force. Wow. 2. D-WADE & LEBRON (Heat): Combined for 44 points but 12 turnovers combined is not going to cut it. Wade, in particular, was ineffective in the first half, leading to the Spurs blow out. LeBron was terrific in the first and faded after that. They need lots more support, yet these guys are capable of being more impactful and in particular more efficient. Their sloppy/careless play fed the Spurs rout. They need better than that. 3. DEREK FISHER (Knicks): Not surprised by his aftermath of Steve Kerr going to the Warriors. Hell have Phil Jacksons full support. Now its about fixing the roster and figuring out Carmelo Anthonys status. My one recommendation would be to hire experienced pro coaches who can help him in the transition from player to head coach. Phil Jackson was always smart to have veteran guys like Tex Winter and Johnny Bach with him. Job is tougher than it looks. Having older guys with lots of wisdom that arent angling for your job really helps when times get tough. Need folks that tell you what you need to hear. 4. BORIS DIAW (Spurs): Great move to start him in Game 3. Tony Parker looks like hes playing hurt and doesnt have the same pop/burst in his game right now. Need more play making and a guy that moves the ball quickly to teammates. Diaws numbers are respectable at nine points and five rebounds along with three assists, yet he had lots of Gretzky Passes -- the critical pass that leads to THE pass (assist). Hes a wonderful passer with off-the-charts basketball IQ and when you put him out there its like having a second point guard on the floor. 5. HEAT DEFENCE: Frist half was poor and overall giving up 111 points on 59 per cent shooting is a huge concern. Game 2 defense was sound but major slippage. Energy level was inept. Perimeter D and communication was surprisingly off kilter. Not typical of the Heat. Help and recovery and shot contests have to elevate. A shockingly poor performance for such a big stage. Lots to clean up. Ball pressure and compete level has to be back to form. Not as good a defensive team as past years yet not this bad. Expect to see much more focused group on Thursday. If not, theyre in huge trouble. Pick it way up. Soldes Nike Homme Air Max 270 Flyknit Blanche/Noir-Coureur Bleu-Cramoisi Total AO1023-101 . City has reached new heights under manager Manuel Pellegrini as they transition from big spending/immediate impact to perennial contender.

As unlikely as it may seem because of his hefty contract, the injured quarterback wants to return to the New York Jets. And, Sanchez joked, he could be back with a super-powered arm. "The way things are coming along, it sounds like Ill be bionic," Sanchez said with a big smile Tuesday. "I dont want to say like Rookie of the Year, but hopefully something like that, where Ill come back better." Sanchez is out for the season after tearing the labrum in his right shoulder in the preseason and having surgery early last month. He spoke publicly Tuesday for the first time since his surgery before volunteering at a community soup kitchen at Church of the Redeemer in Morristown. The quarterback has three years remaining on his contract, but his $13.1 million salary cap number for next season makes it unlikely the team would keep him at that amount. If it were up to Sanchez, though, he wouldnt go anywhere. "Thats all Im thinking about, coming back next year, leading this team and playing well," he said. "I know Ive heard a lot of stuff on the outside about me not being here and stuff like that. I dont know if thats necessarily the case in the building. Hopefully, not. Hopefully, Im a Jet. "Thats where I am. Thats where I want to be." When asked if he truly sees a future in New York as the Jets quarterback, Sanchez didnt hesitate. "Absolutely," he said. "I mean, theres no doubt about that. Its been a dream come true to play here and I dont want to go anywhere else, thats for sure. I know I have (three) years left, and I dont ever want that to end. I love being a Jet and I plan on being here." Sanchez has not spoken to the team about his future with the franchise, but it would make financial sense for the Jets to release him in March. Thats when a $2 million roster bonus is due, and the move would save the Jets $8.3 million in cap space. "Well see what happens," he said. Sanchez was injured in the Jets third preseason game against the Giants when Marvin Austin slammed into his shoulder. Coach Rex Ryan was heavily criticized for puttingg Sanchez in the game in relief of rookie Geno Smith because it was widely assumed the veteran had likely won the quarterback competition -- and was playing with mostly backups and third-stringers at the time of the injury.

While his doctors have been happy with his progress, Sanchez acknowledged it has been tough to be a spectator while bouncing between doctor visits in New Jersey, California and Florida. "Its definitely different, something I dont wish on anybody," he said. "Not even on your worst enemy you dont wish this on. Its hard to be away. Its hard to not be in the locker room, be on the plane, be on the bus. Little things like that, you miss it so much. "All the wins, even the tough times, the struggles, it makes you appreciate those times and how much you love being out on the field and how much you love playing." In an ironic twist, the Jets could actually use Sanchez in a big way at this point. He looked mostly solid during the summer in Marty Mornhinwegs system before the injury. "Its just tearing me up that I cant play for him," Sanchez said. Smith is struggling mightily with one touchdown and 10 interceptions in his last six games, but the only other options are inexperienced backup Matt Simms and veteran David Garrard, who hasnt played a regular-season game since 2010. Through it all, Sanchez focuses only on getting back on the field. "This could be a blessing in disguise," he said. "A lot of people have told me that. Its hard to see that while youre going through it, but it does give you a different perspective." NOTES: Sanchez created a stir on Twitter last week when a picture of him wearing his hair in corn rows surfaced. He said it was the result of losing a bet to a friend, and chose the corn rows -- which he had for only a few days and were gone Tuesday -- over shaving his head or dying his hair. "It was pretty bad," he said. "It was ugly." ... Jets owner Woody Johnson was nominated by the team for the NFLs Salute to Service Award, presented by the league and USAA for "commitment to honouring and supporting the military community." ' ' '
