ened with a 62 in windy condition

    导出博客文章HOUSTON -- You saw it in small doses on Monday night for Team USA, but in the
    big picture of the life and times of DeMarcus Cousins, this sequence might
    demonstrate why hes such a talented player.In the middle of the second quarter
    of Team USAs easy 110-66 victory over Team Nigeria at the Toyota Center, there
    was a stretch where Cousins took over.He pulled down a rebound over Ekene
    Ibekwe, and the Nigerian got a little miffed at how physical Cousins was.If this
    were a regular-season NBA game in December, instead of the final exhibition game
    before Team USA heads to Rio, Cousins might have shoved Ibekwe and then jumped
    in his face. The reality of what this game is, an exhibition, gave Cousins pause
    and a certain calmness. He just smirked when Ibekwe shoved his arm down a
    little.No problem, because Cousins just kept playing, and on the next
    possession, he took the ball on the wing, drawing the defense toward him -- and
    then sent a pass to the corner, where DeMar DeRozan was waiting.DeRozan took the
    pass and stormed to the basket for a left-handed dunk from the baseline. This
    was Cousins showing his skills. When the night was over, Cousins had 10 points,
    five rebounds and a game-high plus-34 on the plus/minus column of the box
    score.Ive coached him before, and he knows international competition, Team USA
    coach Mike Krzyzewski said. I thought he played really well, and he has played
    well; he ran well and he really defended well on the perimeter. Its something
    unusual for those big guys to be on the perimeter like that; theyre adjusting.
    And he gives us a low-post threat, and hell pass out of it too -- very
    unselfish.During the NBA portions of his life, Cousins is seen as someone who
    has problems with coaches, teammates and referees.This past season, Cousins
    averaged a career-high 26.9 points per game and pulled down 11.5 rebounds while
    shooting 45.1 percent from the field. He was second among centers in real
    plus/minus at 4.83. However, he led the NBA in technical fouls for the third
    time in the last four seasons with 17. Cousins temperament can be the biggest
    distraction to the truth of how good of a player he can be.The next month might
    be beneficial for Cousins as an opportunity to show the international world just
    how good of a player and person he is.It goes with whatever storyline is going
    on at the time -- if its negative, then its negative, Cousins told ESPN. Then if
    the story is going to be positive and then Im a great guy, I can only control
    what I can control. I know who I am as a person and thats all that really
    matters.When several American players -- including Russell Westbrook, James
    Harden and LeBron James -- were backing out of the Olympic Games to rest their
    bodies, Cousins raised his hand. He also dealt with health issues this past
    season, but he wanted to play on the international stage again. In 2014, he was
    part of the U.S. national teams FIBA World Cup championship team.The only stir
    Cousins has caused this offseason was questioning the Sacramento Kings draft.
    Cousins told The Undefeateds Marc Spears he was in hot-sculpting class the night
    of the draft. Whatever you believe, maybe these Olympic Games will bring more
    positivity from Cousins.I love the game, he said. I think thats obvious, and Im
    very passionate in what I do. I love my job. If I have a chance to play against
    some of the top talent in the world or whether its against guys around the
    corner, Im going to play.

    . The home side created most of the chances but
    struggled to break down Braunschweigs resilient defence, resulting in the
    Bundesligas 1,000th scoreless draw. SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Paul Goydos and
    Bernhard Langer got the big trophies and checks Sunday in the PGA Tour Champions
    season-ending Charles Schwab Cup Championship.Goydos completed a wire-to-wire
    victory in the tournament, and Langer finished second to win his third straight
    season points title and fourth overall.Wire-to-wire, baby! Goydos said.Goydos
    shot a 4-under 66 to finish at 15-under 195 on Desert Mountains Cochise Course.
    He opened with a 62 in windy conditions and shot a 67 on Saturday to take a
    two-stroke lead over Colin Montgomerie and four-shot advantage over Langer into
    the final round.You start out and really, the best place you could be is way
    ahead, especially with Montgomerie and Langer, Langer four shots, Goydos said.
    If we played a match, hed have to give me like two a side, so I thought it was a
    pretty even spot to be in. Montgomerie probably the same thing, I was lucky to
    get past him. These guys are Hall of Famers.The 52-year-old Goydos earned
    $440,000. He also won the Dicks Sporting Goods Open in July in New York and has
    four victories on the 50-and-over tour. He won twice on the PGA Tour and shot a
    59 in the 2010 John Deere Classic.Youve got to hit the ball in play here, Goydos
    said. Youve got to hit greens. Its not a scrambling type golf
    courrse.dddddddddddd At least if you do youve got to miss it in the right place,
    which I thought I did a very good job of all week for the most part.Langer had a
    64. Recovering from a left knee injury that forced him to withdraw from the
    playoff opener at Sherwood, the 59-year-old German star won the $1 million
    annuity as the Charles Schwab Cup season champion and topped the tour with four
    victories and $3,016,959.The guys a super hero. I dont get it, Goydos said.
    Seems like he should get older. ... I mean, hes getting better. Its his best
    year and hes 59. Hes amazing.In 21 tournaments this year, his worst finish was a
    tie for 13th.Its incredible, Langer said. Finishing all the tournaments
    throughout the year in the top 13, its extremely tough to do. So its difficult
    to put it all into words, how consistent its been, how good its been, but very
    blessed, very fortunate.Montgomerie had a 68 to finish third at 11 under. The
    Scot was second in the standings, earning a $500,000 annuity.Goydos finished
    third in the Charles Schwab Cup standings and earned a $300,000 annuity.Woody
    Austin (64) and 62-year-old Jay Haas (68) tied for fourth at 7 under. ' ' '
