(SportsNetwork. Vapormax Sort Dame .com) - The New York Knicks will try to halt a nine-game losing streak, but things wont be easy as they visit the defending champion San Antonio Spurs Wednesday night. The Knicks havent won since a Nov. 22 decision over the Philadelphia 76ers, who only trail the Knicks by a half-game in the Eastern Conference standings. New York has the worst road record in the league at 1-10 and that lone victory came in the road opener on Oct. 30 against the Cleveland Cavaliers. On Tuesday, the road losing streak reached 10 games thanks to a 104-93 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans at Smoothie King Center. Amare Stoudemire scored a season-high 26 points for New York, but Carmelo Anthony was held to a relatively quiet 17 and managed just two points in the fourth quarter. Its kind of like Groundhog Day at this point, Stoudemire said. After the game you have the same feeling. ... Its tough. J.R. Smith managed 17 points on 6-for-18 shooting. The Knicks close their road trip on Friday night at TD Bank Garden versus the Boston Celtics. The Spurs had a two-game winning streak come to an odd end Tuesday night. They fell to the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City after the Jazz had lost the nine previous games. Tim Duncan tallied 23 points and 14 boards, while Kawhi Leonard supplied 16 points, five rebounds, five assists and five steals for San Antonio, which has lost two of its last four on the heels of an eight-game winning streak. They played better than we did in almost every facet of the game. They looked really good and they deserved to win for sure, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. Tony Parker missed his second consecutive contest with a mild hamstring strain. His status for Wednesday is unknown. Marco Belinelli finished with 13 and Manu Ginobili chipped in 10, but went 3- for-17 from the field. Duncan inched the Spurs within a point to start the fourth quarter, but the Jazz went on a 12-2 surge to close the game out. The Spurs never made it a one-possession game the rest of the way. The Knicks have won three of the last four matchups with the Spurs, including two straight in San Antonio. Vapormax Herre Tilbud . A judge had summoned Clemens and Brian McNamee to federal court in Brooklyn for settlement talks aimed at heading off a trial in the defamation case. McNamees lawyer emerged saying an agreement wasnt likely. "I think this is a case where the lines are deeply drawn in the sand," said attorney Richard Emery.

In five seasons in the league, the Dallas Stars centre has never had a conversation with the Pittsburgh Penguins captain.That wont happen after Crosby withdrew from the event with a lower-body injury.Crosby is the biggest name of the injured to pull out, a list that includes teammate Evgeni Malkin, Sergei Bobrovsky of the host Columbus Blue Jackets, MVP candidate Pekka Rinne of the Nashville Predators, Jimmy Howard of the Detroit Red Wings and Erik Johnson of the Colorado Avalanche.Goaltenders Rinne, Howard and Bobrovsky are out long term. Crosby, Malkin and Johnson were scratched from the game Thursday on the eve of the festivities.All the other names, were going to try to do a good job to help fill (Crosbys) shoes, Seguin said. You cant control when guys are hurt and cant come.Not having those injured stars takes some of the lustre off the first all-star game since 2012. And while younger players are getting their first all-star experience out of the situation, veterans are mixed on how injuries should be treated for an event like this.I think the thing to remember is guys can play through injuries, but injuries are still there, Chicago Blackhawks defenceman Brent Seabrook said. Guys are a little more banged up than they want to lead on.Rookie defenceman Aaron Ekblad, who was bumped up from skills competition duty to the game in Johnsons place like Filip Forsberg is filling in for Malkin, said you cant hassle players for being hurt.Thats the way of the game, Ekblad said Friday. If youre injured and youve got to take some time and rest, then so be it.Not everyone agrees. Ryan Getzlaf, like any veteran with a heavy workload could have used a few days off, but after meeting with Anaheim Ducks management the decision was made that his body was in good enough condition to play in the all-star game.Getzlaf sees it as a matter of loyalty, but thats split between team and league.I think its important that were here, Getzlaf said. As much as some guys need the break and stuff, it is important that you be here. This is a big evennt for the league that you want to have all the superstars.

He quipped that theres quite a few superstars here, and hes right.Even in Crosbys absence, the all-star game will feature Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane of the Chicago Blackhawks, Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens, Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals, Steven Stamkos of the Tampa Bay Lightning and Claude Giroux of the Philadelphia Flyers.The other thing the NHL couldnt help was timing. Injuries to Rinne and Howard came with enough breathing room to name Jaroslav Halak of the New York Islanders and Marc-Andre Fleury of the Penguins as replacements.But the time the injuries piled up this week, it was too late. Most of the viable candidates, or those who mightve been snubbed from the original rosters, were already out of reach on vacation.Goaltender Brian Elliott left his Caribbean vacation to replace Bobrovsky. St. Louis Blues teammate Kevin Shattenkirk would have done the same thing.You cant really deny this, Shattenkirk said. You dont know how many times this is going to happen in your career. I think some guys have the luxury they know they might be here every year. This is an experience you cant really pass up on and something that 20 years from now you dont want to say you skipped an All-Star Game because you wanted to stay on the beach for an extra day or two.Seabrook feels the same way. Voted into the game by fans along with teammates Toews, Kane, Duncan Keith and Corey Crawford, he knows opportunities like this are limited.Im just saying theres a lot of guys that are deserving of being here, Seabrook said. For me being my first one, it never crossed my mind (to not come).When the regular all-stars pulled out, it was also a no-brainer for Forsberg and Ekblad to move up.Obviously it sucks that Malkin is not here, but Ill take that, Forsberg said.---Follow @SWhyno on Twitter ' ' '
