.But, Giroud is slowing winning fa

The lottery results are in and the order is set. Antonio Callaway Jersey . The Cleveland Cavaliers were the big winners at this years draft lottery giving them the top pick in the draft. That means its time speculate on which prospects will end up where. So lets get at it with version 1.0 of the TSN.ca 2013 Mock Draft. 1. Cleveland Cavaliers - C Nerlens Noel - Kentucky Analysis: The Cavaliers will probably listen to offers for the top pick, but if they elect to keep it than Noel is the safe bet. He is long, athletic, brings a great defensive presence and getting better offensively.   2. Orlando Magic - PG Trey Burke - Michigan Analysis: If the Magic are picking first they likely dont go with Burke. But they need a point guard and at No. 2 Burke is worth it. He is a bit undersized but is very strong and has terrific court vision. The Magic need leadership and a bit of swagger and Burke brings both.   3. Washington Wizards - PF Anthony Bennett - UNLV Analysis: This could be a reach with guys like McLemore and Porter on the board but the Wizards are pretty set in the backcourt and Bennett would give them some much needed options at the four. The Canadian is undersized but is super athletic, has a polished offensive game and most importantly is NBA ready.   4. Charlotte Bobcats - SG Ben McLemore - Kansas Analysis: Another tough lottery for the Bobcats but its not all bad. McLemore has tremendous potential might end up being the best player in the draft. The Bobcats are in need of a shooter and McLemore might be the best in the draft in that department with a quick release and excellent range.  5. Phoenix Suns - SF Otto Porter Jr. - Georgetown Analysis: The Suns will be thrilled if Porter falls to them at No.5. He has great length for the wing, is a good facilitator and has a great mid-range game. The Big East player of the year would be a very solid building block for the rebuild in Phoenix.   6. New Orleans Pelicans - SF Victor Oladipo - Indiana Analysis: There has been talk that Indianas crazy-athletic swingman could go as high as first overall. Thats unlikely with the Cavs choosing first thought and Oladipo would be a great addition to the young core in New Orleans. He can have an immediate impact on the defensive end and his offensive game is expanding.   7. Sacramento Kings - SF Shabazz Muhammad - UCLA Analysis: The small forward position is a big need for Sacramento and Muhammad is one of the most gifted scorers in the draft. He has good range and can finish at the rim. He is a bit one-dimensional though and that might not making him the best fit for a roster already loaded with me-first players.   8. Detroit Pistons - PG Michael Carter-Williams - Syracuse Analysis: At 66, Carter-Williams has excellent height for an NBA point guard. He is a great ball-handler, has excellent court vision and can move to the two spot when needed. His outside shot needs work but Carter-Williams would still be a nice complement to Brandon Knight.   9. Minnesota Timberwolves - G C.J. McCollum - Lehigh Analysis: The Timberwolves are pretty set for playmakers with guys like Ricky Rubio and Alexey Shved, but they desperately need shooting. McCollum would give them just that. He is very good scorer and excellent in transisition.   10. Portland Trail Blazers - C Alex Len - Maryland Analysis: Marlyands skilled big man would be a nice addition to the Trail Blazers young core. He is a good athlete for a player his size and brings solid reboudning and shot-blocking. He also has a nice touch and is a good passer from the post.   11. Philadelphia 76ers - C Cody Zeller - Indiana Analysis: The best of the Zeller brothers put on an incredibly athletic display at the NBA combine which should help solidify his position as a late lottery pick. His excellent testing numbers should help convince scouts that he can make the transition to the four spot, a place of need for the Sixers, at the NBA level.   12. Oklahoma City Thunder (via TOR) - SG Kentavious Caldwell-Pope - Georgia Analysis: Caldwell-Pope looks like your prototypical NBA shooting guard. He is a very good athlete and a much better shooter than he showed at the combine. The Thunders early playoff exit showed just how badly then need scoring depth and Caldwell-Pope would give them that with his range.    13. Dallas Mavericks - PG Dennis Schroeder - Germany Analysis: The Dallas Mavericks are reportedly trying to trade their pick to save cap space for then run at Dwight Howard. But if they dont, why not get a guy with great upside that Dirk can speak German with? Schroeder is lightning quick with a massive wingspan (6-foot-8) and wowed scouts at the Nike Hoop Summit.   14. Utah Jazz - SF Dario Saric - Croatia Analysis: Saric is considered by many to be the best Euro prospect in the draft. He has a very high basketball IQ, is a good ball handler and has the potential to be a legitimate star someday. Whether or not he ever reaches his potential is another question.   15. Milwaukee Bucks - SG Allen Crabbe - Cal Analysis: The Bucks are in need of a shooter and Crabbe is just that. He had a very good showing at the combine displaying a smooth, effortless stroke. He also measured well and put up better than expected athletic numbers.   16. Boston Celtics - C Rudy Gobert - France Analysis: At this point in the draft a 7-foot-2 height and mammoth 9-foot-7 standing reach are very intriguing assets. With this type of size, the big frenchman is a born rebounder and shot-blocker. He is also a surprisingly good athlete for someone so big. If he can add some polish to his game Gobert has huge potential.   17. Atlanta Hawks - PF Mason Plumlee - Duke Analysis: Plumlee is a 7-footer that is a terrific athlete. That makes him a hot commodity at this point in the draft. As a 23-year-old senior he is older than most of the other prospects, but the upside is he is also more ready to contribute right away than most.   18. Atlanta Hawks (via HOU) - SG Jamaal Franklin - San Diego St. Analysis: The Mountain West Conference Player of the Year is very long and athletic. What really makes him an enticing prospect is his energy and competitiveness. He is an elite rebounder for his position and is fearless slashing into the paint. The Hawks are pretty set in the backcourt but Franklin is versatile enough to play some small forward as well.   19. Cleveland Cavaliers(via LAL) - C Gorgui Deng - Louisville Analysis: Dieng is likely headed for a career as a backup center, but he has the potential to be a very good one. He is very long and mobile with excellent shot-blocking and rebounding ability. He would fit in nicely coming off the bench behind Anderson Varejao.   20. Chicago Bulls - C Steven Adams - Pittsburgh Analysis: Physically, Adams looks exactly like an NBA center should. He also showed off a surprisingly nice touch on his jump shot at the combine. Still, he is very raw and playing on a roster with Joakim Noah would give the young Kiwi time to develop.   21. Utah Jazz (via GS) - PG Shane Larkin - Miami Analysis: The Jazz need a point guard and Larkin fits the bill nicely. He is quick, agressive and has good range on his jump shot. He had a very strong combine, shooting the ball well and putting up excellent athletic testing numbers including a ridiculous 44-inch vertical. He is also a very solid defender.    22. Brooklyn Nets - SF Tony Mitchell - North Texas Analysis: At this point in the draft its probably worth taking a flyer on a wild card like Mitchell. There are commitment question marks and his production was a disappointment last season. But his potential is very intriguing given how explosive of an athlete he is. If Mitchell harnesses that potential he is a steal this late.   23. Indiana Pacers - C Kelly Olynyk - Gonzaga Analysis: Olynyk has slipped on a lot of draft boards lately thanks in large part to his underwhelming measurements at the combine. Despite standing 7-feet, his reach is only 6-foot-10 which makes him this years T-Rex prospect. Still, he has a polished and versatile offensive game which should serve him well. At this point in the draft he holds great value.   24. New York Knicks - SF Sergey Karasev - Russia Analysis: We all know how much the Knicks love to shoot the three and Karasev is one of the best in the draft from long range. Karasev understands the game well and can fit into a variety of different systems.   25. Los Angeles Clipperss - SG Glen Rice Jr. - NBA D-League Analysis: Rice played extremely well in the D-League, displaying a game that looked pro ready. The lingering questions about his character after being kicked off the team at Georgia Tech and a poor showing at the combine hurt his stock though. Still, a high upside pick.   26. Minnesota Timberwolves - SF Giannis Antetokounmpo - Greece Analysis: Say hello to the drafts most mysterious prospect. He appears to have the physical tools - size, length and great athleticism - and skill to be a special player in the NBA some day. But he is completely unproven and its tough to project whether his talents will translate when faced with better competition. Definitely worth a flyer though.   27. Denver Nuggets - PG Pierre Jackson - Baylor Analysis: Jackson is a speedy, undersized guard with great scoring instincts and a huge vertical. Hes kind of a corss between Ty Lawson-lite and Nate Robinson. That exciting athleticism would serve him well with the high octane Nuggets.   28. San Antonio Spurs - C Jeff Withey - Kansas Analysis: Withey will likely never be a star in the NBA. But a player with his tools, size, mobility, shot-blocking and rebounding is always valuable in the NBA, particularly at this point in the draft. He is also particularly adept at playing tough, interior defence and blocking shots without picking up fouls.   29. Oklahoma City Thunder - G Alex Abrines - Spain Analysis: Abrines is a definite candidate for the best sleeper pick in the draft. He is only 20 and is already contributing for one of the best teams in Europe. He is a great shooter and a very good ball handler. In a couple of years he could become a very good player in the NBA.   30. Phoenix Suns (via Miami) - SG Archie Goodwin - Kentucky Analysis: Goodwin is still something of an unknown. He has great athleticism and appears to have a ton of potential but he was very unproductive as a freshman at Kentucky. He needs to fix his jump shot but hes probably still worth the 30th pick as a project for the rebuilding Suns.    Damion Ratley Jersey . PAUL, Minn. Browns Jerseys Online .

Match factsSeptember 25, 2016 Start time 1000 local (0800 GMT)Big PictureAs cricket ventures towards expansion, these are the kinds of games it needs. In the larger context, there may not be any good reason for Ireland to visit South Africa for two one-off ODIs but, as an isolated event, to play the No. 1 and No. 4 ranked sides in the format will be a good, albeit rare, experience for the Associate side.Ireland have played against each of Australia and South Africa only four times before and have not won a match. They have not been to South Africa since Eoin Morgan was still in their side, seven years ago for qualifiers of the 2011 World Cup. Then, too, they played in Benoni. William Porterfield and the OBrien brothers remain from that trip while the rest will all be first-timers in the country, trying to get Ireland back to the consistency they had a few years ago. Recent results have seen a dip in Irelands form; they are now ranked 12th in ODIs, below Afghanistan and Zimbabwe. They dont have many opportunities to climb, but this will be one.For South Africa, the match marks the real start of a season that began with two winter Tests against New Zealand last month. Their packed home season includes 28 matches across formats until March next year. Limited-overs cricket will likely remain a low priority as they chase Test redemption, but with the Champions Trophy less than nine months away, they will want to begin planning, which for them usually also means climbing the rankings. Victory against Ireland wont do much for that cause but it will set them up for the five-match series against Australia that follows. A series win for South Africa in that contest will see them rise to No. 2.Perhaps, more importantly, the focus will be on how South Africa will enter a new era marked by transformation targets which stipulate that they field a minimum average of six players of colour, including two black Africans, over the course of a season. Essentially that means that at the end of the summer, an audit will be done of every match played to check that the target has been met. Administrators have already said that the fact that the calculation will be done as an average will allow the selectors flexibility, which throws up the possibility of loading teams with players of colour in seemingly meaningless matches, so that there are fewer constraints in selection for bigger games. In this ODI, as many as four black Africans may take the field for South Africa.This will also be the first match in which the new DRS laws will be applied.Form guideSouth Africa LWLWL (last five completed matches, most recent first)Ireland LWLWLIn the spotlightTemba Bavuma has only opened the batting twice in List A cricket - once in 2010 and more recently in February for Lions against Knights - but it is a role he may have to get accustomed to. Russell Domingo believes Bavuma could become a long-term opener, given his tight technique and ability to build an innings, and has hinted that Bavuma will be asked to bat in that position at franchise level this season.Kevin OBrien will be the man South Africa want to stopp, not just because of his reputation. Browns Jerseys Shop. OBrien was one of only two players to score more than 25 the last time South Africa and Ireland met. The other one, Andy Balbirnie, is not in this squad. OBrien also took the all-important wicket of Faf du Plessis, who will captain South Africa in this match.Teams newsAll three of South Africas new caps could make their debuts in a new-look XI that is without AB de Villiers (injured), Hashim Amla (awaiting the birth of his third child), Dale Steyn (rested) and Imran Tahir (rested). Bavuma will probably open the batting with Quinton de Kock, and David Miller will return after being left out of the triangular tournament in the Caribbean. Dwaine Pretorius, Andile Phehlukwayo and Wayne Parnell will form a trio of allrounders. Aaron Phangiso is the only specialist spinner in the side.South Africa (possible): 1 Quinton de Kock (wk), 2 Temba Bavuma, 3 Faf du Plessis (capt), 4 JP Duminy, 5 David Miller, 6 Farhaan Behardien, 7 Wayne Parnell, 8 Dwaine Pretorius, 9 Andile Phehlukwayo, 10 Kagiso Rabada, 11 Aaron PhangisoNeither Ed Joyce nor Boyd Rankin have traveled with the Ireland squad for these matches which, in the words of Adrian Birrell, South Africas assistant coach who used to be in charge of Ireland, robs them of their best batsman and best bowler. Sean Terry will fill in for Joyce while Ireland will have to decide if Tim Murtagh, who will arrive straight from playing in the county season finale for Middlesex against Yorkshire, should be thrown into the mix immediately or given an extra days rest.Ireland (possible): 1 William Porterfield, 2 Sean Terry, 3 Niall OBrien, 4 Gary Wilson, 5 Kevin OBrien, 6 Paul Stirling, 7 Stuart Poynter (wk), 8 Andy McBrine, 9 George Dockerell , 10 Barry McCarthy/Tim Murtagh, 11 Peter ChasePitch and conditionsFrom an ODI total of 399 by South Africa against Zimbabwe in 2010 to scores of 91 and 104 by Netherlands and Scotland respectively, Willowmoore Parks pitch is capable of anything. In what is still early season, it is likely to be slow and low and perhaps take some turn, favouring a more old-fashioned style of play. While the surface readies for summer, the weather is already there. A beautiful day is expected with temperatures hitting 28 degrees and clear skies.Stats and triviaSouth Africa have played four ODIs against Ireland - three at World Cups - and have won all of them. They have never played Ireland at home.Willowmoore Park has not hosted an international match since 2013, when South Africa played Pakistan.Niall OBrien needs 36 runs to become the fourth Irish player, and second in his family, to reach 2000 ODI runs.QuotesThey are a team that cannot be taken lightly. Every now and again, they create a huge upset. I wouldnt look at their recent losses independently. Id look at them in their last five years and theyve had some big wins.South Africas assistant coach Adrian Birrell, who was in charge of Ireland in the past, expects a fight from the Associate nation Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys 2018Cheap Jerseys 2019 Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping ' ' '
