Defensive tackle Geno Atkins and defensive end Carlos Dunlap both signed contract extensions with the Bengals on Tuesday that tie them to the team through at least the 2021 season and they met the media to talk about the deals on Wednesday.
Atkins said that the path to the four-year John Gibson Jersey , $65 million contract he signed was “business as usual” and said that it shows the team is willing to take care of its own players. It’s the third contract Atkins has signed since being drafted in 2010 and this one will take him through his age 34 season, which is a sign of how much success he’s had since coming to Cincinnati.
That individual success hasn’t been matched by the team and Atkins said that changing that is his top priority as he plays out his new deal.
“They were the team that drafted me,” Atkins said, via “I love it here. I love the city. I love the organization. It’s something to cement my legacy here and I think that’s important to finish where I started. We’ve got unfinished business, this whole team Filip Forsberg Jersey , and me and ‘Los are trying to bring a Super Bowl to Cincinnati.”
Dunlap confirmed that he shares Atkins’ goal and predicted 2018 will be “a special season” for the Bengals, who are looking for their first trip to the postseason since the 2015 season.
SALT LAKE CITY — Donovan Mitchell is doing everything he can to bolster his case to win Rookie of the Year honors during the first round of the NBA playoffs.
Mitchell took over the fourth quarter to help the Utah Jazz claim a 102-95 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday and even the series at 1-1. He scored 13 of his team-high 28 points in the fourth quarter. It helped the Jazz erase a double-digit third-quarter deficit and gave them room to pull away late.
“The thing about Donovan’s game is he just continued to attack,” Utah coach Quin Snyder said after the game. “I thought when he really got aggressive going to the rim, some other things opened up.”
Stopping the first-year guard on late game possessions will obviously top the Thunder’s agenda when the series returns to Salt Lake City for Game 3 on Saturday night. Executing such a defensive plan will be easier said than done.
Mitchell is averaging 27.5 points through the first two games in the series. He has scored 55 points in his first two playoff games, which is the most by a guard in NBA history.
His efforts have been complemented by aggressive play from Derrick Favors around the basket. Favors is averaging 13.5 points and 10.5 rebounds in the postseason and posted career playoff highs in points (20) and rebounds (16) in Game 2 against the Thunder.
At one point Geoff Swaim Jersey , he had snared eight offensive rebounds through 2 1/2 quarters. Oklahoma City had only six offensive rebounds as a team through the same stretch.
“It definitely helped me for the rest of the game, just trying to find ways to be aggressive and make an impact,” Favors said.
The Thunder are looking to regain an edge in Game 3 after getting off to another slow start and enduring an even worse finish in Game 2. Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony and Paul George combined for two points on 0-of-14 shooting in the fourth quarter. Oklahoma City managed just 16 points in the fourth quarter.
It allowed Mitchell to go on a tear and erase a 77-67 third-quarter lead built behind a 19-0 run.
“We just didn’t make shots in that fourth quarter,” Anthony said. “We worked so hard in the third quarter to get the lead back and played so well to get back and go up (10) in that third quarter. Fourth quarter http://www.indianapoliscoltsteamonline.c...ope-jersey , we just didn’t shoot the ball well.”
It didn’t help that Steven Adams was limited by foul trouble. He picked up two early fouls in the first half, played just 22 minutes, and eventually fouled out with 2:48 left.
With Adams out for large stretches, Favors and Gobert were able to do plenty of damage around the basket. He could not find a way to reverse momentum when he was out there.
“I don’t think Steven was ever able to get into a flow or rhythm for himself because he was battling foul trouble,” Thunder coach Billy Donovan said.
Utah and Oklahoma City split two games in Salt Lake City in the regular season. The Jazz won the first meeting 96-87 on Oct. 21 behind 19 points from Joe Ingles and 16 points and 13 rebounds from Rudy Gobert. The Thunder took the second game 103-89 on Dec. 23 behind 27 points Steven Stamkos Jersey , 10 rebounds and 10 assists from Westbrook.
