NEW YORK -- Centre Brook Lopez has broken a bone in his right foot again, leaving the Brooklyn Nets without their leading scorer as they try to turn around a disappointing season. cheap jerseys . The team said Saturday that Lopez was hurt during its 121-120 overtime loss at Philadelphia on Friday. The Nets said they would issue another update next week after consultation with their doctors. Lopez had the same injury, a fractured fifth metatarsal, when he was limited to five games in the 2011-12 season. He underwent surgery following last season to replace a bent screw in the foot. Lopez is averaging 20.7 points and 6.0 rebounds in 17 games. He has missed nine with a sprained left ankle. Though was no indication he was seriously injured Friday, when he played 44 minutes. The 7-footer from Stanford didnt miss a game during his first three seasons in the NBA, but hasnt made it through a full season since. He missed seven games last season when he sprained the same foot. The Nets are just 9-17 after entering the season with huge expectations. They have Andray Blatche and Reggie Evans as possible replacements on the bench, or could move Kevin Garnett to the centre position, as the Boston Celtics did last season. cheap jerseys from china .

Mauer had three hits, drove in two runs and was flawless in his first game at first base as the Twins beat the Chicago White Sox 6-2 on Thursday night. "Teammates were supporting me, it was a lot of fun," Mauer said.PARIS -- Here comes the French Open final everyone expected and, except for other players, wanted: No. 1 Novak Djokovic, one victory from becoming the first man in 43 years to win four consecutive major championships, against No. 2 Rafael Nadal, one victory from becoming the only man to win seven titles at Roland Garros. Hows that for high stakes? You can watch the match live on CTV2, Sunday at 9am et/6am pt. Djokovic is undefeated in his past 27 Grand Slam matches, which includes beating Nadal in the finals at Wimbledon in July, the U.S. Open in September, and the Australian Open in January. Nadal has won 51 of 52 career matches at the French Open; only he and Bjorn Borg have won the clay-court tournament six times. Never before have the same two men met in four Grand Slam finals in a row, so its apt that no matter who wins Sunday, his achievement will be monumental. "I have this golden opportunity to make history. This motivates me. It really inspires me. Im really grateful to be in this position, obviously," said the 25-year-old Djokovic, who owns five Grand Slam titles to Nadals 10. "And look, Ill try to prepare for that match and get my hands on that trophy, if I can." Wont be easy, thats for sure. Both Djokovic and Nadal breezed through their semifinals Friday. If this stage of a Grand Slam tournament is supposed to provide a challenge, it did not -- which probably isnt all that stunning in Nadals case, but was rather striking when you consider Djokovic faced 16-time major champion Roger Federer and won 6-4, 7-5, 6-3 in a match that wasnt really that close. "His mental state and preparation for this match was excellent," said Djokovics coach, Marian Vadja, "and this has to happen against Rafa." Nadal found himself flying by the seat of his pants -- OK, white shorts -- on one point against No. 6 David Ferrer, somehow winning the exchange despite falling on his rump. Otherwise, he was completely in control en route to 6-2, 6-2, 6-1 victory. "Im surprised," said Toni Nadal, Rafaels uncle and coach, "because we were expecting a very difficult match against one of the best players in the world." Make no mistake: Ferrer is a formidable opponent, not someone who got hot for a few weeks to sneak into the semifinals. He was playing in his third Grand Slam semifinal. He already won two clay-court titles this year. And it was Ferrer who upset Nadal in the 2011 Australian Open quarterfinals, stopping his bid for a fourth consecutive Grand Slam title -- the milestone Djokovic now seeks. Nadal won all 15 sets hes played this year at Roland Garros, losing only 35 games, the lowest total for anyone reaching a major final since Borg lost 31 on his way to winning the 1980 French Open. Nadal has won 71 of 72 service games, saving 18 of 19 break points. Pretty close to perfect. "I really dont like to talk about perfection, because that, my opinion, doesnt exist. You can always play better," said the 26-year-old Nadal, whose only loss at the French Open came against Robin Soderling in the fourth round in 2009. "But, sure, I am very happy the way that I am playing. Probably today was my best match of the tournament." With Ferrer serving at 1-1, 30-all in the second set, Nadal produced a masterpiece, turning a gaffe into a highlight. During a point that lasted more than 30 shots, Nadals feet slipped out from under him as he sprinted toward the net. On the slow-motion replay, its easy to see that his eyes never left thee ball, even as he crashed to the court. wholesale nfl jerseys. Suddenly sitting -- yes, plopped on his backside, right there in the middle of the most important clay-court stadium in the world -- Nadal raised his left arm to slice a backhand drop shot that prolonged the point and drew Ferrer forward. As if that werent impressive enough, Nadal popped up like a jack-in-the-box in time for the next shot, a volley-lob that arced over Ferrers head and settled near the baseline. Ferrer, no slouch himself in the speed department, got to the ball, but his forehand landed in the net. That gave Nadal a break point, and he converted it in much more conventional fashion, staying upright until Ferrer simply pushed a forehand long. "Both of us were playing more or less the same type of tennis, but then he started to become more and more aggressive," Ferrer said. "There was nothing I could do to fight back." Federer appeared to feel that way, too, particularly after Djokovic broke him four times in the second set. At the start of that set, Federer actually appeared to get going. He broke to go ahead 1-0 in a game that featured a particularly compelling, 38-stroke point. Federer hit a drop shot that Djokovic slid and stretched to get, the ball an inch or so off the ground; Federer replied with a lob that sent Djokovic sprinting to the baseline for a no-look, back-to-the-net, between-the-legs passing shot; Federer knocked home a volley winner. Djokovic, chest heaving, smiled as he went to towel off. A year ago in the French Open semifinals, Federer snapped Djokovics 43-match winning streak in a four-set thriller. On Friday, Vajda explained afterward, Djokovic was determined to play "extremely patient ... not rushing." Worked wonders. Increasingly confounded by his opponent and the swirling wind, Federer made a very un-Federer-like 46 unforced errors. Djokovic made 17. "I was struggling to sort of keep the ball in play," said Federer, who is 30 and nearly 2 1/2 years removed from his most recent major championship. "When youre down two sets to love against Novak, its not the same match anymore. He goes for broke and there is no more fear." Asked to size up Sundays final, Federer didnt hesitate. "I obviously pick Rafa," Federer said. "I think hes the overwhelming favourite." If Djokovic wins his first French Open final, he will join Don Budge in 1938, and Rod Laver in 1962 and 1969, as winners of four Grand Slam trophies in succession. Budge and Laver went 4 for 4 within a calendar year each time. Federer twice came close to doing what Djokovic hopes to accomplish: In 2006 and 2007, Federer entered the French Open final needing one win for a fourth consecutive major title. Federers opponent each time? Nadal, naturally. One significant difference: Federer is 10-18 against Nadal, including 2-6 in Grand Slam finals; Djokovic is 14-18 overall against Nadal, but 3-1 in Grand Slam finals. Djokovic won all six matches he played against Nadal in 2011, then made it seven straight with their 5-hour, 53-minute epic final at the Australian Open. Nadal, though, has won their two meetings since, both on clay in May. "Theres a lot on the line. It always is, when youre playing finals of a Grand Slam," Djokovic said. "Considering the matches that we played against each other in last 15 months, we expect another emotional match, another big challenge for both of us, fighting for one of the four biggest titles in our sport."
