    At a press conference following the NFL’s announcement of its new national anthem policy Authentic Marquez Valdes-Scantling Jersey , several team owners took the podium to say that part of the reason for the adoption of the policy is to put focus back on football.

    As evidenced by the reaction to the announcement, that’s going to take some time as players, coaches and others associated with the league are going to be asked their thoughts on it many times in the months before tallies of which players chose to remain in the locker room become part of Sunday afternoons. Ravens coach John Harbaugh shared some of his thoughts on the matter in a statement on Thursday.

    鈥淚 believe in standing for the flag. To me, the flag represents the ideas and the ideals that make us America. I also believe in the freedoms the flag represents and that people can speak for themselves. I know this: Our players respect the flag and what it represents. And, we鈥檙e all proud at the Ravens of the work they do to make this community and country better.鈥?/p>

    While it’s a brief statement, Harbaugh covers a lot of ground and different people will interpret the messages it contains through their own feelings on the matter. What it doesn’t do is lay out any Ravens-specific policy moving forward.

    That will likely be left to team owner Steve Bisciotti and it’s sure to be one of the first questions he faces when he’s next in front of reporters. Harbaugh and Ravens players will have their first media session of OTAs later on Thursday.

    The Houston Rockets are so full of physical defenders that Golden State coach Steve Kerr said many look like they could play football.

     

    And with three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt watching from a courtside seat Thursday night, this team long known for its powerful offense relied again on its defense to beat the Warriors 98-94 and take a 3-2 lead in the Western Conference finals.

    ”Both teams are playing their guys heavy minutes so shots will fall or not David Bakhtiari Jersey ,” James Harden said. ”But I think whoever can buckle down and get stops consecutively and create opportunities with their defense is going to win or have a chance at winning games.

    ”The last two games, we’ve done that.”

    Indeed. The Rockets bounced back from an embarrassing 41-point loss in Game 3, when Golden State scored 126 points, to hold the Warriors to fewer than 100 points in two straight wins. Houston’s stingy defense helped the Rockets come out on top on a night when Harden, the MVP front-runner, was 0 for 11 on 3-pointers.

    Critics of Mike D’Antoni’s teams often said they were too focused on offense and not good enough on defense. It looks like that’s changed now – against a team with four All-Stars in its starting lineup.

    ”Ninety-four points for a team like that, the guys are trying to find a way and they did Kemoko Turay Jersey ,” D’Antoni said.

    The Rockets have kept the Warriors from moving the ball the way they’re accustomed to, crowding them and forcing them into playing more isolation- style. They’ve also been relentless at throwing bodies at their shooters, and have often used bigger players to harass Stephen Curry to try and wear him down.

    Houston has forced the Warriors into 34 turnovers combined and limited them to 19 total 3-pointers in the last two games.

    The Warriors and Rockets were first and second in the NBA in points per game during the regular season, averaging 113.5 and 112.4, respectively. Golden State has managed just over 107 points a game in this series, and Houston has held the defending champions to 97 points in its three wins.

    Curry noted that both teams have elevated their defenses in this series.

    ”It’s been high level,” he said. ”Nothing’s easy out there on either side.”

    He shook his head at the fact neither team has broken 100 points in the last two games.

    ”I think (if you) guessed what the final score would be between the Rockets and Warriors Authentic Customized Broncos Jerseys , and neither team getting to 100 two straight games, don’t know what the odds (would be) on that,” he said. ”Defense is high right now.”

    While everyone has been pitching in, the tone on defense, especially in these last two games, has been set by the aggressive play of P.J. Tucker and Trevor Ariza, and Clint Capela’s presence at the rim. Tucker knows that most people believe the way to beat the Warriors is to outscore them in a shootout. The Rockets have shown that energy and effort on the defensive end are a better formula for getting it done.

    ”Anybody says to beat Golden State they talk about scoring 120 Authentic Customized Panthers Jerseys , 130 points,” Tucker said. ”We just feel like we play defense, (lock) down and make it tough for them.”

    And if the Rockets are able to do that in Game 6 on Saturday night they’ll be on the way to their first NBA Finals since winning consecutive titles in 1994-95.
