NEW YORK -- Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd was suspended Friday for two games after pleading guilty in a drunken driving case. Cheap Derrick Thomas Jersey . The NBA announced Kidd will miss the first two games of the season. The Nets open at Cleveland on Oct. 30 and host the defending champion Miami Heat on Nov. 1. Kidd pleaded guilty to a misdemeanour drunken driving charge after he crashed into a utility pole on eastern Long Island on July 15, 2012. He was treated at a hospital for minor injuries. He returned to court Monday after completing community service and his plea was reduced to a violation, driving while ability impaired. "I think we all knew that was going to come at some point," Kidd said Friday after practice at Duke University in Durham, N.C. "You have to be responsible and the league came down with the suspension, and I accept that. If a players out, guys have got to step up. ... My coaching staff is more than capable of stepping up." It hasnt been determined which of Kidds assistants will fill in during the suspension, he said. Kidd can return to the bench when the Nets travel to Orlando on Nov. 3. "The decision is consistent with what the league has done in the past," Nets general manager Billy King said in a statement. "And we look forward to Jason leading our team versus Orlando and the rest of the year." Kidd spoke to students at two Long Island high schools last week about the dangers of drunken driving. He also paid a $500 fine and his license was suspended for 90 days, according to a spokeswoman for Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota. The 40-year-old Kidd retired as a player in May after a 19-year NBA career and was hired weeks later to coach the Nets -- the team he took to two NBA Finals when the franchise played in New Jersey. He helped the Dallas Mavericks win the 2011 title.

The Indians are 3 1/2 games out of the second wild-card spot after Oakland, Kansas City and Seattle all lost ahead of them earlier in the day. The start of the game was delayed for more than two hours because of rain. http://www.chiefsteamprostore.com/Youth-Travis-Kelce-Elite-Jersey/ . -- Evgeni Malkin scored the tying goal during a power play in the third period and Brandon Sutter got the deciding goal in a six-round shootout, leading the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 3-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Friday night.MINNEAPOLIS - Kevin Love expected to be booed by Timberwolves fans in his first game back in Minnesota since he was traded to Cleveland last summer.Wolves fans obliged on Saturday night in a 106-90 win for the Cavaliers.He said he wished the franchise would have been more successful in his six years with the club so it didnt come to this.I enjoyed a lot of the people that I played with and met off the floor here, but its a little bitter because I wish things couldve gone better and been better, Love said before his Cavaliers played the Timberwolves. Im in a situation now where were winning basketball, and Im happy with that.Love was booed during pregame introductions and every time he touched the ball early, and the second-best player in Timberwolves history said it was a little jarring to be playing at Target Center in enemy colours.I think thats only human nature to want things to always be sunshine and blue skies all week, Love said. But thats just not the case. As long as we get a win Ill feel great doing it.Love finished with 14 points on 6-for-14 shooting and 17 rebounds.He is no stranger to hostile environments. In his lone season at UCLA, the Oregon native was booed mercilessly when the Bruins travelled to play the Ducks and his family was the subject of taunting.LeBron James offered Love his experience as well, having endured vitriol from the fans in Cleveland when he returned with the Miami Heat in 2010.I can probably help him more than anybody, James said. Obviously it wont be the same as my experience but I can give him some insight. The most important thing is he has to lean on us. Thats what I did. I leaned on my teammates. When you go on the road and you return to a place where they once loved you, they still love you. I know that. You only get booed beecause they love you. Derrick Thomas Jersey. The Wolves (8-39) entered the season with hopes of approaching last years 40-42 finish to show their beleaguered fan base, and the rest of the league, that they could survive after trading Love. But injuries to Ricky Rubio, Kevin Martin and Nikola Pekovic in the first month ended those hopes. They limped into the game with the NBAs worst record.Earlier this week, the Wolves produced a tongue-in-cheek video trumpeting the return of Cavaliers guard Mike Miller, a parody that Love called hilarious. But coach and president Flip Saunders clearly wasnt pleased with it.I think as an organization we should be above that, said Saunders, who did not see the video before it was played on Wednesday night. We have to acknowledge that Kevin, when he was here, he was a great player for us. He was an All-Star. He won an Olympic gold medal, did a lot of positive things. ... To not acknowledge that, to go the other way, I would say would be hypocritical.Love exchanged hugs with Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor and his wife, Becky, before the game and shared a laugh with Pekovic. Many fans did give him a warm ovation when a video tribute was played during a break in the first quarter.We know its going to be a great atmosphere, Martin said. You have one of the greatest players to ever play in Timberwolves history coming back, so the fans are excited probably to see him and the Cavs come into the arena.After trading Love, the Wolves started yet another major rebuilding project in an effort to end the leagues longest-running playoff drought. They are now building around Rubio and Wiggins, the No. 1 overall pick who has exhibited the potential to be what they have long searched for — a dynamic wing player who can also be a top-flight defender.
