PHOENIX -- After a laugher over the New York Knicks, the Phoenix Suns are on their longest winning streak in four years. Goran Dragic scored 32 points in 32 minutes and the Suns routed the Knicks 112-88 on Friday night for their season-high sixth victory in a row. Eric Bledsoe added 16 points, seven rebounds and six assists, Markieff Morris scored 16 and Miles Plumlee had 11 points and 12 rebounds for the Suns, who led by 22 at halftime and 32 in the third quarter. Carmelo Anthony scored 21, seven below his season average, and Amare Stoudemire 19 for the Knicks, blown out for the second time in three games on their five-game western trip. "They didnt play good defence," Dragic said of the Knicks, "so tonight we could get everything that we want. We swing the ball two and three times, Im sure we get an open guy." With Memphis loss at Golden State, Phoenix pulled a half-game ahead of the Grizzlies for the No. 7 playoff spot in the West. The Suns are a game ahead of Dallas. The Knicks fell two games behind Atlanta for the eighth spot in the East. After winning eight of nine, Phoenix is just 1 1/2 games behind No. 6 Golden State and 2 1/2 behind No. 5 Portland. "In the West, its so crazy," Dragic said. "The first nine teams, they all deserve to be in the playoffs. But its only eight teams that can get in. We just have to take care of our business. I think if we play like tonight, were going to be in good shape." Suns coach Jeff Hornacek said that unless his team finishes 7-2 "or something like that," its unlikely Phoenix can catch the Warriors or Trail Blazers. "But they (the players) do look at the standings," Hornacek said. "They see that its bunched up there and lets see what we can do." Dragic, who scored 18 in the first quarter, returned to start the second half after getting five stitches to repair a cut just above the left eye, the result of a second-quarter collision with Tyson Chandlers massive arm. "I tried to poke the ball from him and he turned and hit me with his elbow right in the eye," Dragic said. "I dont know what it is. Its always the left eye." He said hes had stitches above the eye five times in his career, twice this season, and always on the left side. Phoenixs streak is its longest since the Suns won 10 straight four years ago. The smaller Suns dominated the boards 56-37 and had a 46-24 advantage in points in the paint. "We just werent ready for them," Anthony said. "We werent prepared for them, and they ran us out of the gym." It wasnt quite as bad for the Knicks as their 127-96 embarrassment against the Lakers in Los Angeles on Tuesday night, but it wasnt close after the first 1 1/2 quarters. The Suns, a season-high 15 games above .500, outscored the Knicks 24-6 over the final 8:49 of the half to lead 62-40 at the break. "We are playing for something and it is disappointing because we just cant afford to give games away," New York coach Mike Woodson said. Dragic had 20 at the half on 8-for-10 shooting, including 3-of-4 on 3s. Phoenix shot 52 per cent in the first half to New Yorks 39 per cent. The Suns were 8-of-20 on first-half 3s, the Knicks 4-of-13. The smaller Suns even outrebounded New York in the first two quarters 26-17. Anthony, the No. 2 scorer in the NBA at 28.2 points per game, had 10 in the first half on 4-of-10 shooting. Things got worse for New York early in the third quarter. Dragic made two 3s and Bledsoe one to put the Suns up 78-47 and Plumlees reverse jam on an alley-oop pass from Bledsoe made it 82-50 with 6:40 left in the period, Phoenixs biggest lead against anyone this season. NOTES: Tim Boven, an engineer at Honeywell from suburban Peoria, won $77,777 by sinking a shot from halfcourt during a second-quarter timeout. ... Stoudemire played in Phoenix for only the second time since leaving the Suns following the 2010 season. ... Phoenix is 20-10 against Eastern Conference foes. Reggie Wayne Colts Jersey . City has reached new heights under manager Manuel Pellegrini as they transition from big spending/immediate impact to perennial contender. Yaya Toures seeming discontent Tuesday may complicate that, as does the little issue of Financial Fair Play. Le Raven Clark Colts Jersey .Y. - Peyton Manning made his fifth MVP award a family affair. http://www.nflcoltsgearsshop.com/Black-Scott-Tolzien-Colts-Jersey.html?cat=873 . The Flames announced Monday that Treliving, a former assistant general manager with the Coyotes, will take over the vacant GM spot in Calgary. "Im ready for this,"Treliving said.

Fifth-seeded Cilic gained his fourth title in Zagreb and became the third Croat overall to win at least 10 career titles. Cilic also lifted his career record in Zagreb to 22-4, winning 20 of his last 21 matches at the event.The list of available players is very strong this off-season as the February. 10 signing period in CFL free agency approaches. Justin Hickman, Weston Dressler and Odell Willis are just a few of the players that will become available when the market opens on February 10 at Noon et, but even with these big name international players out there, the most coveted will be Canadian talent, especially those on the offensive line. Its just a matter of numbers. All the big talk about the Canadian offensive linemen being the big prizes is really about big money. explained former BC Lions coach Mike Benevides. These guys will command some of the biggest dollars. Its about supply and demand. With most teams starting four Canadian linemen, each team needs to have seven of them on their roster somewhere.” (approximately 70 league-wide) As the table below shows, the fullback and kicker positions have more Canadians by percentage. But they are far fewer in actual numbers than the offensive line: Canadian Starters Position Percentage Starting Fullback 9/9 - 100% Long Snapper 8/9 - 88% Kicker/Punter 9/13 - 69% Offensive Line 29/45 - 64% Wide Receiver 15/41 - 37% Defensive Line 8/36 - 22% Defensive Back 9/45 - 20% Running Back 1/9 - 11% Linebacker 2/27 - 7% Quarterback 0/9 - 0% *Based on CFL teams’ final depth charts from 2014 season A minimum of seven Canadians have to start on a CFL roster (offence and defence). And while there have been some changes, teams still look to put the majority of their Canadian players on the offensive line. So when there are established Canadian offensive linemen available as free agents, theyll be highly sought after and will command big dollars. The two things I like about this class of top free agent offensive linemen is that they have all played early in their career and had success and that theyre young, said TSN analyst and former coach Paul LaPolice. They could be the cornerstone of any organizations Canadian depth for a long time. (Ben) Heenan and (Brett) Jones have proven themselves as multi-year starters and have performed at a high level, added Benevides. Heenan has competed at offensive tackle, which is a unique skill and seen as a ratio changer – and hes won a Grey Cup.” Jones has also won a Cup and played at a level at which he was awarded the best offensive lineman of 2014. These men (as well as Tyler Holmes) have developed into and grown to be capable starters. Heres a look at some of the noteworthy Canadian offensive linemen who will be free agents at Noon et on Tuesday, Feb. 10. Ben Heenan – Right Tackle, Saskatchewan Heenan, 24, has been a starter in Saskatchewan ever since he was taken first overall in the 2012 CFL Draft. At 64 and 310 pounds, he hasnt looked out of place since his arrival. Heenan will only get better and will be in high demand come Feb. 10 (Winnipeg has already been mentioned as a team with keen interest). Boosting up that demand is the fact that Heenan is a Canadian playing a tackle spot - generally considered a harder position to fill than centre or guard. Riders GM Brendan Taman expects Heenan to test the free agent market and making things more complicated is the demand for Heenan from NFL teams. Benevides Game Notes on Heenan: - Has been a starting right OT, but long-term he’s best suited at guard - Quality consistent player, strong run blocker LaPolices Coaching Playbook - Proven ratio changer and performs well enough to be a Canadian tackle. - Will only get better out there and can be a core player of a team’s National players. Brett Jones – Centre, Calgary In just his second season, the Stampeders centre was named the CFLs most outstanding offensive lineman in 2014. In 2013, he was named the CFLs most outstanding rookie. And with two All-Star nods over those two seasons, there will be immense interest in him. For his part, Jones has made it known that he wants to make an NFL roster next season. He had tryouts with the Giants and Buccaneers in December and is expected to get workouts with other teams.dddddddddddd Benevides Game Notes on Jones: - Very intelligent player who finds a way to perform, even though hes not optimum size. - Excellent in open space, a great competitor LaPolices Coaching Playbook - Quickly established himself as one of, if not the best centres in the league at a very young age. - Centre must have great intelligence as he often directs the other linemen and he has flourished in the role. - Physical and uses his hands well. Tyler Holmes – Guard, Toronto After joining the Argonauts at the end of the 2013 season, Holmes showed how effective he could be in his first full campaign as a starter. He played in all 18 games in 2014 and was named an East Division All-Star. Editor’s Note: Since publication, the Argonauts announced that Holmes re-signed with the team through the 2016 season. Benevides Game Notes on Holmes - Big-time college accolades, not a lot of snaps in our league yet - Hes a very physical athlete: strong, moves well, tough and capable at multiple positions - I believe he has the greatest upside, he would be the one Id want LaPolices Coaching Playbook - Love his aggressiveness, has the athletic ability to possibly go outside and play tackle. - He gets to the second level well and will strike the linebackers. - Has the feet to move outside with time Matthew ODonnell – Guard, Edmonton ODonnells size alone (611, 350 pounds) will make him a notable presence in free agency. After being drafted by Saskatchewan in 2011, ODonnell bounced around trying out for NBA teams and even made it to the Bengals practice roster. In Edmonton, he found his stride starting all 18 games for the Eskimos in 2013. He was named the teams Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman that year and he continued his strong play in 2014. His continued improvement will make him a wanted man should he jump into the free agent market. Editor’s Note: O’Donnell was released from his contract by the Eskimos with reports stating he’ll sign with the Bengals of the NFL. Benevides Game Notes on ODonnell - He has really developed and grown in the last couple of seasons into a quality player who plays with the kind of grit that is really important and unique. - He has position flexibility, he could play at OT to get through. LaPolices Coaching Playbook - Improved dramatically since his draft year in a number of areas. - Had the opportunity to play at a young age and it has helped him a lot. - Doing a better job of playing with a wide base and is improving at keeping his weight back in pass protection. - As his punch improves you will not find a longer set of arms in the CFL to hold off defensive lineman. Greg Wojt - Guard, Hamilton Wojt would be a veteran presence welcome on any CFL roster. The 2014 campaign was an injury-filled one for Wojt, as he appeared in only two games after suffering a season-ending shoulder injury. Prior to 2013, he started in 20 games for the Ticats and was named the teams Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman. Hes played in 68 games in his CFL career and if hes healthy, hell garner a lot of outside interest. Benevides Game Notes on Wojt - Very good player, outstanding movement skills and pass sets - Intelligent, a multi-position guy, but slightly underweight and lacks optimum size - Has been injured recently LaPolices Coaching Playbook - Has performed well for the Ticats and continues to grow So while the skill positions get most of the glory and the headlines in the CFL, it certainly pays to be an offensive lineman, especially a homegrown one. The premium on Canadian O-Line talent also extends to the prospect pool, as they make up eight of the top 14 CFL prospects for 2015. And if these prospects are able to prove themselves early in their careers, theyre likely to cash in as well. A lot of offensive linemen are drafted and brought into camps but it does take time to be big enough, mature enough to be able to perform at the pro level, Benevides explains. These men are ready made, ready to start. Someone (another team) invested in growing and developing them and whichever team they go to can capitalize now. Wholesale NFL Jerseys ' ' '
