AUBURN HILLS, Mich. Cheap Authentic Jerseys . -- Thirty years ago, the Detroit Pistons beat the Denver Nuggets 186-184 in triple overtime, a game that remains the highest scoring in NBA history. Saturday, the same teams played a game that also featured very little defence. Once again, it was Detroit coming out on top, riding a combined 65 points and 20 assists from Brandon Jennings and Josh Smith to post a 126-109 victory. Randy Foye led the Nuggets with 25 points, while Wilson Chandler scored 20 and J.J. Hickson added 15 points and 16 rebounds. Denver lost point guard Ty Lawson to a fractured rib late in the first half. Evan Fournier replaced him at the start of the second half, with Foye moving from shooting guard to the point, and Denver wasnt able to keep up the scoring pace. "You could see it take the wind out of us when Ty came out of the game," Nuggets coach Brian Shaw said. "Hes our floor leader and hes the one who controls the pace and the tempo of the game. Hes also the best guy we have to stay in front of Jennings." Still, Detroit needed to put up its highest point total in regulation since March 18, 2008, when they scored 136 against, of course, the Nuggets. "Thats a product of the way Denver plays," Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks said. "Were not used to playing at that kind of pace, but we stepped up and made the adjustments to stay with them." The win was a victory of sorts for embattled Pistons President Joe Dumars, who saw his two big off-season acquisitions put up big numbers. Jennings had a season-high 35 points and 12 assists -- the first Piston to do that since Isiah Thomas in 1988 -- while Smith had 30 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists. "I think that pushing the ball and making it an up-tempo game made it easier to get the shots that weve been looking for," Smith said. "Guys were setting screens, we were communicating and talking on defence, and it was good. Its fun to be part of something when were doing it the right way." Jennings also hit six 3-pointers, something he has struggled with all season. His outside shooting was important on a night when Denver hit 15 3s and Jennings teammates only combined for two. Rodney Stuckey added 19 points for Detroit, while Andre Drummond had 18 points and 15 rebounds. "Were not going to win too many games when we give up 126 points," Shaw said. With both teams on the second night of back-to-back games, it was clear early that this was not going to be a defensive struggle. The Nuggets jumped out to a quick lead by hitting their first four 3-point attempts, but Detroit was able to get to the rim at will, scoring 40 points in the paint before halftime. Chandler and Foye combined for 23 points in the half -- 21 on 3-pointers -- but Denver had to adjust their attack with Lawson on the bench. The Nuggets turned the ball over twice in the opening moments of the third quarter, but Hickson pulled down six rebounds in the first three minutes of the period to keep Denver in the game. Denver was within 97-86 at quarters end, putting the pressure on a Detroit team that has struggled all season to hold fourth-quarter leads. Sure enough, even though Shaw had to go to Randolph and Jordan Hamilton, the Nuggets used an 8-0 lead to pull within 106-100 with 7:14 to play. Detroit forced enough turnovers to end Denvers surge and Jennings iced the game with a pair of late 3-pointers. "We are just being careless with the ball," Foye said. "As a team, we have to do a better job of fighting. We can make shots and we can make threes, but when it comes down to making stops, we have to do that, too." NOTES: Will Bynum did not play for the second straight game, and hasnt been on the floor since an argument with Cheeks during a loss in Orlando on Wednesday. ... Chauncey Billups, who played for the first time in a month on Friday, also sat out Saturdays game. ... John Long, who scored 41 points in the NBAs highest-scoring game, was broadcasting Saturdays shootout for Detroit radio, filling in for Rick Mahorn. ... Lawsons fractured rib showed up on a postgame X-ray, and he is doubtful to play Monday at Indiana. Cheap Soccer Jerseys . Glen Perkins pitched another tenuous ninth inning but got his 19th save in 22 tries after giving up two runs to blow one the night before. Adam Eaton led off with a triple and scored on Gordon Beckhams sacrifice fly. Pinch-hitter Paul Konerko then smacked a single up the middle, but Perkins struck out Jose Abreu and Adam Dunn to end it and punctuated the final swing and miss with a big pump of his left arm. Wholesale NFL Jerseys .J. -- David Garrard slipped on a black T-shirt before he walked over to his new spot in the New York Jets locker room, and the words printed in green on front said it all. http://www.jerseyssafe.ru/ . -- Cleanthony Early scored 19 points and Tekele Cotton added 14 as No.METAIRIE, La. - Mark Ingram sprinted to his left, turned to his right, snagged a short pass and accelerated up field.Practicing without limitations on Wednesday, Ingram looked ready to return to a New Orleans offence that once again ranks among the NFLs best when the Saints play at Detroit on Sunday.However, New Orleans could be without tight end Jimmy Graham, who leads the clubs in receptions, yards receiving and touchdown catches.Graham wore a helmet to practice and participated in stretches, but otherwise stood around and watched the portion of individual drills open to media. The Saints later announced that Graham sat out the team drills, which are closed to reporters, and coach Sean Payton declined to discuss Grahams prospects for playing against the Lions.Payton also stopped short of guaranteeing that Ingram would play in Detroit.Hes doing well and we will kind of see how we handle that on Sunday, Payton said. Obviously we value depth at that position.Ingram said he could play with a little pad on the hand he broke in Week 2 at Cleveland. The running back needed surgery and missed three games before New Orleans had last weekend off.Im ready to go, full-go, 100 per cent full-tilt, Ingram said. They havent babied me or eased me into practice, so Ive been doing everything — catching, running blocking.A former Heisman Trophy winner at Alabama and 2011 first-round draft choice, Ingram looked in his first two games like he might have his best season yet.Hes gained 143 yards on 24 carries — good for a team-high 6 yards per carry. He also scored three touchdowns.It was disappointing, frustrating to have an injury, Ingram said. There wasnt much I could do about it. I had to get the surgery, just try and be positive and it wasnt a long term injury.The Saints still moved the ball well in his absence, with hard-running second-year pro Khiry Robinson and veteran Pierre Thomas sharing most of the carries.The Saints rank eighth in the NFL in rushing with about 133 yards per game, and theyre averaging 5.2 yards per carry as a team.Meanwhile, New Orleans ranks second in passing with 309.8 yards per game, and quarterback Drew Brees said hes confident thhe Saints offence is dynamic enough to maintain such production if Graham sits out. Cheap Jerseys. Different guys will have opportunities, Brees said. If Jimmys not able to go, were going to miss him. But Im really confident those other guys are going to do a great job.Brees stressed that he has plenty of confidence in veteran tight end Ben Watson as well as second-year tight end Josh Hill, whose seven catches include one for 37-yards and a 34-yard touchdown.While the Saints are 2-3, moving the ball has not been one of their problems. Their 442.8 yards per game ranks behind only Indianapolis, which averages 444 yards. However, the Saints are 13th in scoring with 26.4 points per game. Theyve been hurt by 10 turnovers, including Brees six interceptions.I feel like weve run the ball very well. I feel like weve been very balanced. I feel like weve maintained a lot of long drives that ended up in touchdowns, Brees said. Id say weve turned the ball over too much, which is my responsibility, more so than anybody.Brees said the Saints also are not hitting on as many big plays as usual, but added, You can only take what the defence is giving you. You dont want to read into that too much because then all the sudden you feel like we have to manufacture these big plays, we have to force these big plays, and if theyre not there, thats when some of those mistakes come.Since Payton, who designed the offence, and Brees arrived in New Orleans in 2006, the Saints have never ranked worse than sixth in yards gained for a whole season, and have ranked first four times.Right tackle Zach Strief has also been with New Orleans since 2006, and noted, As long as we have Drew and as long as we have coach Payton, I think that well be a consistently good offence.Notes: FB Erik Lorig, who has yet to play this season because of an ankle injury, practiced fully on Wednesday, as did C Jonathan Goodwin, who was knocked out of New Orleans previous game with a knee bruise. ... Those missing practice included LBs Ramon Humber and Kyle Knox, both with ankle injuries, and CB Patrick Robinson (hamstring).___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap China Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China China NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
