MIAMI -- LeBron James caught an alley-oop flip from Dwyane Wade on a fast break, threw down a dunk and then headed up court with his arms spread like some superhero. James can look the part, whether hes wearing a clear mask or a black one. Switching to a clear protective cover at the NBAs request, James had 20 points, nine rebounds and seven assists Saturday to help the Miami Heat earn their seventh consecutive victory by beating the Orlando Magic 112-98. James dispensed with the black mask he wore Thursday when playing for the first time since he broke his nose. "He was a clear-mask guy tonight," teammate Chris Bosh said. "He was just a regular dude, a regular citizen of Gotham." Wade scored 24 points and Bosh 20 for the Heat, who shot 58 per cent. Eleven players scored for the Heat, and their bench totalled 39 points. James said league officials wanted him to wear something that would allow opponents to see his face. The newer mask seemed to bother James more than the black one did, and he frequently took it off when the clock was stopped. "Its not comfortable," he said. "Having something on your face isnt comfortable, but it is what it is." While the mask was a nuisance and James nose remained tender, neither hindered his performance. "Its another challenge for a great player," coach Erik Spoelstra said. "His game is an aggressive, attacking game, and theres going to be contact. But coming off the injury, he has been as aggressive as he was before." James streak of five consecutive games with more than 30 points came to an end, but he took just 12 shots and played only 31 minutes. "When you come out and take care of business, thats a reward," he said. After sitting out a week because of his broken nose, he avoided another injury when he went stumbling into the third row after making a fast-break layup and settled in an unoccupied seat. The Heat improved to 10-1 since Feb. 1, and theyve won their past four games by an average of 19 points. "Defensively were flying around and were communicating," James said. "And offensively, obviously were playing at a high level." The Heat completed a sweep of the four-game season series against their in-state rivals. "Theyre an efficient team, the most efficient team in the NBA," Magic coach Jacque Vaughn said. "Thats done with LeBron setting up people, and youre getting shots that you want. Youre not rushing." The game was the first for the last-place Magic since they broke a 16-game road losing streak at Philadelphia on Wednesday. Tobias Harris led Orlando with 20 points, and Nikola Vucevic added 18. With the Heat taking the lead for good early in the second quarter, Bosh played only 18 minutes, his lowest total since Nov. 16. "I got a bunch of night-off jokes tonight," Bosh said. "I enjoyed it. Guys filled in and did their job." Among the contributors off the bench was Greg Oden, playing his 11th game after being sidelined by knee trouble for 3 1/2 years. He went 3 for 3 for eight points with four rebounds in 13 minutes. "Im happy to be on the team," Oden said. "When I get a chance to play, I just dont want to mess up." Heat guard Mario Chalmers had the highlight play of the first half, fetching a loose ball while seated at midcourt with his back to his basket, then flipping a pass over his shoulder to James to set up a fast-break basket. The Heat also got to the rim often out of their half-court offence. "They do a good job moving the ball, driving, kicking," Vucevic said. "They make plays for each other. Theyre very unselfish." NOTES: Orlandos Arron Afflalo missed his fourth consecutive game. He was out with a sprained ankle and is now recovering from a brief illness. ... At 42-14, the Heat have tied their best start through 56 games. They had the same record a year ago, when they went on to win their second consecutive NBA title. ... The Heat improved to 15-0 at home when leading at halftime. Yankees Alex Rodriguez Jersey . The Cottagers last victory came in a 2-1 home win over West Ham when Rene Meulensteen was still in charge.

Every. Single. Game. Thats 1,230 in total to cover the regular season. The man is Corey Sznajder, a soft-spoken 23-year-old Salisbury University grad who lives in Annapolis, Maryland and has been charting zone entries and zone exits throughout the NHL. I love big projects, he said. No kidding. At the 2013 Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, I met Eric Tulsky, who presented research on the value of controlled zone entries (short answer: about twice as valuable to enter with control of the puck rather than dumping it in) and Sznajder had charted a couple hundred games that were included in that study. Yankees Don Mattingly Jersey . Alina Fodorova of Ukraine took third place.

The deal was also pending the review of medical records for the former first-round draft pick.Detwiler is a former starter who spent last season in the bullpen, mostly working in long relief. He went 2-3 with a 4.00 ERA in 63 innings across 47 appearances, then was left off the Nationals post-season roster for the NL division series against the San Francisco Giants.The Rangers are looking to add another experienced starter in their rotation with Yu Darvish, Derek Holland and Colby Lewis.Detwiler was 10-8 wwith a 3.dddddddddddd40 ERA in 33 games (27 starts) for the Nationals in 2012, and started Game 4 of the NL division series that season when he allowed an unearned run over six innings against St. Louis. He was limited to 13 starts in 2013, when he was on the 15-day disabled list for a right back muscle strain and later ended the season on the 60-day DL because of a lower back strain.Washington drafted Detwiler with the sixth overall pick in the 2007 amateur draft, and he pitched in one inning for the Nationals in September that season. He didnt pitch in the majors again until 15 games in 2009.Detwiler has started 69 of his 132 major league games.
