The Pistons finish this mini road trip Sunday in

SEATTLE -- Russell Wilsons first appearance at home since hoisting the Lombardi Trophy looked very similar to Seattles Super Bowl domination, even in a limited performance. Jason Kidd Mavericks Jersey . Wilson threw for 121 yards and ran for two touchdowns, leading Seattle to scores on all four of his possessions as the Seahawks beat the San Diego Chargers 41-14 on Friday night. "I definitely believe we can be that explosive," Wilson said. "It starts first of all with the offensive line and how well theyre doing ... but then you think about our receivers and we have so many talented receivers." Wilson did a little of everything. He was pressured on the first snap of the game and avoided it to complete a pass. He scrambled when the pressure created clear running lanes. He threw sharp passes to open receivers and he operated Seattles offence with an efficiency missing in its preseason opener at Denver. Wilson completed 11 of 13 passes, and connected on his first eight attempts. He ran for another 31 yards as Seattle finished the first half with 260 yards of offence, 255 of those with Wilson at quarterback. Wilson was the first act. Terrelle Pryor and B.J. Daniels added their own chapters on a night Seattles quarterbacks combined for four touchdowns rushing. Pryor got an extended look in the competition to back up Wilson and showed why Seattle is so enticed. Pryor was 1 of 4 passing, but ran away from San Diegos defence on a 44-yard TD run in the fourth quarter. Daniels added a 6-yard TD run. Marshawn Lynch made his preseason debut for all of two plays before giving way to backups Robert Turbin and Christine Michael. Lynch held out of the first week of training camp and did not touch the ball in his two snaps. Seattle did get some of its other stars involved, including Percy Harvin, who had four receptions for 31 yards after catching five passes all of last season. Turbin finished with 81 yards on 12 carries. He showed open-field speed cutting back on the defence and racing for 47 yards on one carry, and displayed power bulling in for a 1-yard touchdown. "The offence as a whole probably made some mistakes but I think overall we did well," Turbin said. "It was continuing to get better and continuing to be disciplined as a runner. Its not always going to be daylight. Sometimes you have to create some." San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers played just one series before handing off to Kellen Clemens. San Diego kept most of its starting offence on the field with Clemens, but the Chargers could manage only 42 yards against Seattles defensive starters, 37 of those coming on the one drive Rivers led. "There are some run-game things Im still working through, some checks, that I know are going to come out today. Still some things that we can improve on in the pass game, me specifically," Clemens said. Just when it seemed Wilsons night should be done, he took one more series as the Seahawks worked on their hurry-up offence. Harvin said that wasnt the plan. Seattles starters were supposed to be done early in the second quarter. The result: Wilson took Seattle 67 yards in under 4 minutes, capping the drive with a 5-yard touchdown scramble. "We told Coach we were in a rhythm and wanted to stay in there," Harvin said. The drive provided the only moment of apprehension for Seattle when Doug Baldwin was knocked out of the back of the end zone on a big hit from San Diego safety Darrell Stuckey. Baldwin was slow to get up, but was laughing on the sideline when Wilson scrambled for the TD and a 24-0 Seattle lead. Seattle also cleaned up its penalty problems from the preseason opener, when it was flagged 13 times, and was better on third down. The Seahawks were called for three penalties in the first half and were 5 of 6 on third downs. "That was about as much as we could hope for," Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. NOTES: Seattle DE Michael Bennett did not play because of a tight hamstring. ... San Diego DT Sean Lissemore left in the first quarter with an ankle injury, but walked off the field without help. S Jahleel Addae also left with a hamstring injury. ... Seattle K Steven Hauschka made both his attempts including a 55-yarder in the third quarter. Swingman Jason Kidd Jersey . The defeat leaves the 41-year-old Nestor to concentrate on the mixed-doubles event after winning 12 straight matches and winning Australian titles in Brisbane and Sydney with two different partners. "This was a little bit of a let down, but all credit to them," said Nestor. Zaza Pachulia Mavericks Jersey . Ted Ligety, Mikaela Shiffrin, Bode Miller and Tim Jitloff underlined the squads enormous potential on the Rettenbach glacier in Austria.(SportsNetwork.com) - The Milwaukee Bucks will try to snap a two-game losing streak Saturday night when they welcome the Detroit Piston to the Bradley Center. The Bucks have dropped their last two on this four-game homestand, which began with a victory over the New York Knicks. Since, Milwaukee fell to the Toronto Raptors and Utah Jazz. On Wednesday, the Bucks lost to Utah, 101-99. Brandon Knight and Jared Dudley each scored 16 points for the Bucks, who close their homestand Saturday night. Zaza Pachulia contributed 10 points and 10 boards. Giannis Antetokounmpo finished with 13 points and O.J. Mayo chipped in 12 off the bench. Utah owned a 101-92 edge with 2:36 to play, but the Bucks scored the next seven points to pull within two. Pachulias layup, Antetokounmpos slam and a Dudley 3-pointer cut the gap to 101-99 with 1:29 remaining. The score was the same when Dudley missed from the top of the arc with seven seconds left. Milwaukee retained possession as the ball went out off Rudy Gobert, but Knight missed a jumper and Pachulia missed the tip-in at the buzzer. For us to fight and put ourselves in a position to tie or win the game after coming out slow, you gotta give those guys that came off the bench, they gave us a spark, Bucks coach Jason Kidd ssaid. Deron Williams Mavericks Jersey. It was a tale of two halves tonight. The Bucks head out on a three-game road trip, starting Sunday in San Antonio, followed by stops in Miami and Orlando. The Pistons won three of their last four, although the only setback came on the road against the piping-hot Atlanta Hawks. That stopped a seven-game road winning streak. Last time out, Detroit defeated the Orlando Magic, 128-118, at The Palace of Auburn Hills, on Wednesday. Brandon Jennings scored 24 points and handed out a career-high 21 assists to lead the Pistons. Andre Drummond led the Pistons with 26 points, and Greg Monroe was not far behind with 24 of his own. Drummond and Monroe had 17 and 10 rebounds, respectively. The Pistons led by 14 early in the fourth quarter, but the Magic pulled within two. Detroit pulled back ahead and did enough for the victory. We did a great job after they got the game back to two, said Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy. We gathered ourselves really well and played very well down the stretch. Its another learning experience. The Pistons finish this mini road trip Sunday in Toronto. The Bucks have won two of three meetings this season between the Central Division rivals. The two teams have split the last 10 meetings in Milwaukee. Cheap NFL Jerseys nfl jerseys china ' ' '
