Tim Duncan became only the third NBA player to reach 1,000 regular season victories when his San Antonio Spurs beat the Utah Jazz 88-86 on Tuesday. Michael Gallup Jersey . The 39-year-old, who has only ever represented the Spurs since being drafted by the franchise with the first pick in 1997, joins Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (1,074 wins) and Robert Parish (1,014) in reaching the milestone.He is the only one of the trio to have secured all of his wins with one team, and also has 157 play-off victories which are counted separately by the NBA. Duncan played nearly 24 minutes in the narrow victory, scoring three points and adding two rebounds, two assists and two blocks.But he was almost made to wait a couple of days as the Jazz came close to stealing victory, Rodney Hood missing a potential game-winning three-pointer on the buzzer.Thats a hell of a lot of wins, Spurs team-mate Patty Mills said.I cant wrap my mind around that at all. Thats pretty incredible. Sacrifice, longevity, loyal, and genuine, I think. I think the word that covers all of that is professionalism.The way he handles and carries himself both on and off the court, I think, is what got him to this point at the moment. Its a hell of an achievement and one that Im very fortunate enough to be able to witness and rub shoulders with [him]. Cedrick Wilson Jr. Jersey . The injury bothered Bledsoe in the Suns victory over the Clippers on Monday and he sat out the teams home loss to Memphis on Thursday night. Wholesale Cowboys Jerseys .

PARIS -- France is facing Iceland in a European Championship quarterfinal on Sunday. Here are five France players to watch:---HUGO LLORISFrances tournament would have been even more of a challenge were it not for goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.He was ready from the off, making an alert save to deny Romania forward Bogdan Stancu from point-blank range in the fourth minute of Frances Euro 2016 opener.In the group stage, the Tottenham goalkeeper kept clean sheets against Albania and Switzerland, and then put in a commanding performance against Ireland in the round of 16.With Ireland 1-0 up and France under pressure, Lloris made a great save low to his left to keep out striker Daryl Murphys curling shot. And early in the second half he clawed away James McLeans fizzing cross from the left before it reached Shane Long at the back post.---SAMUEL UMTITIYoung Lyon center half Samuel Umtiti has no international experience.So, what a time to be making your France debut -- in the quarterfinals of a European Championship.With Adil Rami suspended, Umtiti is likely to be picked ahead of Manchester Citys Eliaquim Mangala, who has looked out of form in training.Umtiti is not as strong as either Mangala or Rami, but has pace and positional sense -- and he is a better passer from the back.One unanswered question. How will the 22-year-old Umtiti, who had a poor Champions League campaign this season, cope with the pressure?---PAUL POGBAFrance is still waiting for a commanding performance from its midfield star Paul Pogba.Considered among the most sought after players in football, he is constantly linked with a move away from Juventus, where he has won four straight Italian titles.But while the 22-year-old Pogba often lights up the Italian league, he rarely does the same for France. Asidee from a dynamic first-half performance against Switzerland, where he twice hit the crossbar with shots from distance, he has been a disappointment at Euro 2016. Cowboys Jerseys Store. Backing up Pogba is teammate Patrice Evra, who says hell be there for us when we really need him.French fans hope Evras right.---ANTOINE GRIEZMANNForward Antoine Griezmann has shaken off a lethargic start to become the spearhead of Frances attack.Griezmann looked sloppy in the opening game against Romania, squandering two golden chances to score.Coach Didier Deschamps then dropped him for the next game against Albania.If that was a wake-up call for the highly-rated Atletico Madrid forward, then it worked.Griezmann came off the bench to break the deadlock against Albania with a sharp 90th-minute header, and then scored twice in quick succession against Ireland last weekend to overturn a 1-0 halftime deficit.He seems to be timing it right for France.---OLIVIER GIROUDReplacing Real Madrid star Karim Benzema as Frances center forward was never going to be easy for Olivier Giroud.But, Giroud is slowing winning fans over -- though not for his goal scoring feats. Although Giroud headed France in front in the opening game against Romania, he has squandered golden chances since then.He impressed in the round of 16 come-from-behind victory against Ireland. His excellent headed lay-off set up Griezmann for the winning goal. He also put Griezmann clean through late on with a cushioned pass only for Griezmann to miss a great chance for a hat trick.The 29-year-old Giroud may never blossom into a lethal finisher, but he is unselfish and contributes through his astute link play. Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Cheap Jerseys 2019 Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping ' ' '
