OKLAHOMA CITY -- Sacramento coach Michael Malone said Kevin Durant wouldnt score 54 points against his Kings like he did against Golden State two nights earlier. Turns out, the alternative wasnt any fun for Malone, either. Durant scored 30 points and embraced a role as a facilitator by finishing with nine assists to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder past Sacramento 108-93 on Sunday night. "I told you Durant wasnt going to get 54 tonight, right?" Malone said with a smile after the game. Durant, coming off that career-high scoring effort on Friday, still shot 10 for 15 from the field on Sunday and scored at least 30 points for the seventh straight game. Serge Ibaka added 20 points and benefited of several of Durants passes. "My teammates were setting screens for me," Durant said. "We were seeing something in pick-and-roll. Serge was doing a great job of slipping out of it and knocking down shots. I was trying to be aggressive and put pressure on the rim and the defence and if they draw in, I kick it out and if not, I try to lay the ball in, take a good shot." Reggie Jackson added 16 points for the Thunder, who won their third straight. Oklahoma City scored 34 points off Sacramentos 21 turnovers and had 20 second-chance points. Oklahoma City improved to 8-5 without All-Star point guard Russell Westbrook since he had surgery on his right knee last month. "They execute well and they do a great job of playing together, so all credit to them," Cousins said. "But at the same time, I think we did a terrible job defensively of guarding those guys tonight. We made it easy for them to run their sets. With that being said, thats why they had the type of game they did." Isaiah Thomas scored a career-high 38 points for the Kings, but he slowed down in the second half as the Thunder pulled away. "He got hot," Durant said. "He hit a lot of 3s. He got to the foul line a lot. He was coming down, pulling up. I think our pick-and-roll defence was a lot better in the second half, making him drive a little more, forcing him to our bigs." DeMarcus Cousins had 16 points and 14 rebounds for Sacramento. Rudy Gay scored just six points for the Kings and was ejected after picking up two technical fouls in the fourth quarter. The score was tied at 43 late in the second quarter before the Thunder went on a 12-4 run, highlighted by Durants lob to Ibaka for a two-handed jam. The Thunder held the Kings to 6-for-17 shooting in the second quarter to take a 57-52 lead at the break. Thomas scored 27 points in the first half on 7-for-11 shooting. Cousins made a layup early in the third quarter to tie the score at 60, but the Thunder responded with an 8-0 run, including four points by Jackson, to put Oklahoma City ahead and force the Kings to call a timeout. Durant found Jackson a little later for a 3-pointer to extend the lead to 75-64 and force the Kings to call another timeout. Durant hit a 3 from straight away to bump Oklahoma Citys lead to 87-70, and the Thunder led 89-74 at the end of the quarter. Gay was called for two technicals for arguing with an official and was ejected with 10:01 remaining. The Thunder led 95-74 after the free throws. "Rudy, obviously, I think he was frustrated with the way he was playing and he wound up getting thrown out of the game, which is unfortunate," Malone said. "But tomorrow is another day. Well bounce back, well work on some things, watch some film and we still have two games on this trip that we feel like we have a great chance to win."

MacKenzie Weegar Jersey . But sometimes the way you lose takes precedence over the final score. And how the Jets lost the 5-4 game to the New York Islanders on Thursday is what had Coach Claude Noel hot after the game.CHESTER, Pa. - Abby Wambach has been concerned recently about overthinking headers.She seemed to have it all worked out on Sunday night when she scored four goals — three with her head — in a 6-0 victory over Costa Rica that gave the World Cup-bound U.S. national team their fifth CONCACAF Womens Championship title.Thankfully, today my teammates put me in positions where I really couldnt think, she said afterward. I was set up to be successful.The U.S. women had already secured a trip to next years World Cup in Canada with a victory over Mexico in the semifinals of the eight-team, four-city tournament.Wambach scored on a header in the fourth minute, and fed Carli Lloyd one in the 17th to put the United States up 2-0. It was Lloyds fifth goal of the tournament.Wambach scored with her head again off a cross from Lloyd in the 35th minute and added another header in the 41st, also with the assist from Lloyd.She added her fourth, this time a chip, in the 71st minute. It was her second career four-goal game; she scored five goals in a match against Ireland 10 years ago.I think her focus is crazy good. Shes really locked down and working on every facet of her game, U.S. coach Jill Ellis said, adding with a smile: We did some extra heading with her because she thought her timing was slightly off. I think she did all right tonight.Wambach now has 18 goals in World Cup qualifying, breaking Michelle Akers team record (17). Wambach already has the career record for goals with 177, and she leads the team with 14 goals this year.It was the first time a single player has scored four goals in a CONCACAF womens championship title match.All you can do when Abby Wambach is playing that is pray — pray that the ball doesnt get to her, said Costa Rica coach Avedissian Garabet.Sydney Leroux scored in the 73rd minute for the final margin.Lloyd also scored a pair of goals in the 3-0 semifinal victory over Mexico on Friday night at PPL Park to send the United States to its seventh-straight World Cup. Costa Rica earned its countrys first Womens World Cup appearance by beating Trinidad and Tobago on penalty kicks after a 1-1 draw in its semifinal match.The top three finishers in the championship for the North, Central American and Caribbean region earned World Cup bids: Mexico secured a berth wwith a 4-2 victory over Trinidad and Tobago in the third-place match earlier on Sunday.ddddddddddddrinidad and Tobago will still have a chance with a two-leg series against Ecuador starting next month.The Trinidad and Tobago team became sentimental favourites of the CONCACAF event when they arrived in Dallas to train two weeks ago with only about $500. Coach Randy Waldrum, who volunteers his services, went to Twitter to plea for help. The response overwhelmed him.It was really emotional for me that first day, just the outpouring. It is hard to put into words, said Waldrum, who is head coach of the NWSLs Houston Dash.Mexico has offered to help Trinidad and Tobago train at altitude for the matches against Ecuador.The U.S. team has been ranked No. 1 in the world for the past five years and was the favourite going into the eight-team CONCACAF tournament. The women swept the group stage to advance to the semifinal against Mexico.Costa Rica, the first Central American team to qualify for the World Cup, had not dropped a match in the qualifying tournament either until the final against the United States.The group stage wasnt without adversity for the United States. Forward Alex Morgan sprained her left ankle during a win over Guatemala and will miss four-to-six weeks. Morgan injured the same ankle last October and was sidelined seven months.Four years ago, the U.S. women were also favoured and expected to have an easy run through qualifying, but Mexico pulled off the upset in the semifinal. The 2-1 loss in Cancun ultimately forced the United States into a two-game playoff against Italy which the team won 2-0 on aggregate.At the World Cup in Germany the next year the United States fell to Japan in the final on penalty kicks.Wambach says shes at about 60 per cent as she prepares to help the team go for its first World Cup title since 1999.It is a process, and in the seven, eight months till the World Cup, I just want to be continually, gradually climbing, hopefully not coming across any setbacks like injury, she said. But the reality is that its a long seven months. Theres a lot of stress and a lot of responsibility and pressure that goes into it. For me Im happy with the way this tournament turned out for our team. Got a little bit of fitness under my belt. ' ' '
