NEW ORLEANS -- It took Cam Newton nearly an hour to show up for his postgame interview after the Carolina Panthers fourth straight loss Sunday. Discount Air Max 1 NZ. He was in a much bigger hurry once he got there, walking out after 90 seconds of terse, sullen responses.If there was any good news for the defending NFC champion Panthers (1-5), Newton resembled his old self during -- and after -- a 41-38 loss to the New Orleans Saints.Back from a concussion that sidelined him for a week, he rallied Carolina from a 21-0 deficit to tie the score in the fourth quarter. But he had a hard time handling the frustration of another tough defeat.We just have to find ways to win football games, he said.He did his best to reverse the slide, throwing for 322 yards and two touchdowns. He then ran 2 yards to bring the Panthers within 38-36 with 2:58 remaining before connecting with Devin Funchess on a tying 2-point conversion.But he had to watch from the sideline as Drew Brees, who threw for 465 yards, guided the Saints to a winning 52-yard field goal with 11 seconds left.He (Newton) did great, said tight end Greg Olsen, who had a team-high 94 yards on six catches. We scored 38 points and should have had 50.Aside from acknowledging a miscommunication on an interception he threw in the end zone when the Panthers trailed 21-0, Newton was in no mood to talk, He answered eight questions with a total of 51 words and responded to several inquiries by saying, Next question.Teammates spoke for him.Hes a warrior, said tight end Ed Dickson, who caught Newtons second touchdown pass. Whenever No. 1 is on the field, we have a chance to win.Newton, who returned to practice on Wednesday and was cleared to play Saturday, ran only twice but completed several passes when he scrambled out of the pocket.Cam was not limited at all in his mobility, Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. He made some really good decisions. When you score 38 points, you need to give yourself more of a chance to win.Heading into their bye week, the Panthers are running out of chances to turn around their season. Although Newton played well, Carolina bore little resemblance to the team that won its first 14 games of 2015 on the way to the Super Bowl.This is not the team from last year, wide receiver Ted Ginn, Jr. said. Thats what everybody was expecting, but its not. Were still finding ourselves.---AP NFL website: and ;Wholesale Air Max 1 NZ . Pettersen, winner of last years Evian Championships, had nine birdies and three bogeys, holding off a series of challengers led by Marion Ricordeau of France. The second-ranked Norwegian made her season debut after missing the LPGA Tours opening event last month in the Bahamas because of a shoulder injury. Cheap Air Max NZ . Emery skated the length of the ice and fought an unwilling Holtby during the third period of the Flyers 7-0 loss Friday night in Philadelphia. He was given 29 penalty minutes, including a game misconduct. But Emery did not face even a disciplinary hearing with NHL senior vice president of player safety Brendan Shanahan because rules 46. .J. -- Marty Brodeur beat the Pittsburgh Penguins yet again. The Washington Wizards and Orlando Magic will look for more from their budding stars when they meet in Orlando on Friday.For Washington, Bradley Beals career has been something of a bumpy road. Injuries have derailed his career at various points in the past four seasons. He has played 70 games in a season just once in his career.Despite all that, Beal has one of the best shots in the league, making 39.5 percent of his 3-pointers in his career. He was seemingly the best complement to John Wall, helping the Washington Wizards get within two games from the Eastern Conference Finals in 2015.Last year, Beals scoring has been up. He averaged 17.4 points per game. But he could not outrun his narrative -- he played in only 55 games thanks to a stress reaction in his lower right leg that kept him out intermittently in 2016.This season, Beal missed three games already with hamstring tightness. And with his history of injury, the Wizards stayed cautious. It seemed the Wizards could not get themselves on the same page -- with Wall also missing games this season after surgery on both his knees this offseason.The guinea pig has learned to be smart in terms of taking care of my body, Beal told Candace Buckner of The Washington Post. A few times I wanted to come back a little bit earlier from it but I just took my time with my hamstring. The biggest thing is just learning from previous injuries and just learning from past mistakes, and if you come back earlier, the risk youre taking with possibly missing more games.Since Beals return, he has played like the star player the Wizards invested a five-year, $128-million contract in. That culminated in his career-high 42-point performance against the Phoenix Suns on Monday.It feels very much like Beal is back after fighting off so many injuries throughout his career.The Wizards have gotten the most from Beal. He is averaging 20.2 points per game and shooting 42.5 percent from the floor.At 4-9, Washhington will need more from its potential star, much the same way the Orlando Magic need a bit more from Nikola Vucevic. Wholesale Shoes NZ From China. Vucevic is the teams leading scorer for the past several years as the Magic tried to climb out of the basement and into the playoffs. With all the changes the Magic have made this season, no one has struggled to adjust more than Vucevic.Vucevic is averaging 11.4 points per game, his lowest since his rookie year when he was a little-used reserve player. His rebounds are up to 11.0 per game, but Vucevics value has always been on the offensive end. So his career-low 43.1 percent shooting is a bit alarming for a team that relies on him to anchor an offense.Wednesdays loss to the Phoenix Suns was a bit of a hopeful turn. He scored 21 points on 10-for-15 shooting. It was just his third 20-point game in 15 games this season and just the seventh game shooting better than 50 percent from the floor.Vucevics struggles have been emblematic of the Magics overall offensive struggles.Weve got to get comfortable with each other where things become automatic, Vucevic said before Wednesdays game. I think in Milwaukee we had more plays where we made the right play and found the open guy and made the extra pass. We just have to do that over and over. And then I have to make shots at some point this season. I think that will help a lot as well.Getting Vucevic to play better offensively and, quite simply, make shots is critical for the Magic to back up their improving defense. They have held six of their past seven opponents to fewer than 95 points. But Orlando has scored at least 95 points just once in that span.For both the Magic and the Wizards, getting these two key players on the court and on track offensively will help both climb their way into the Eastern Conference playoff picture.
