It took playing on a broken leg for teenager Curtis Scott to prove to Melbourne coach Craig Bellamy he was made of stern stuff. Air Force 1 Cheap Outlet .And now that display of stoicism could see the highly-touted 19-year-old jump the queue into the Storm No.6 jersey for next NRL season.While it would seem the race to replace Blake Green is Cameron Munsters to lose, Bellamy reserved high praise for Scott, promising he would be a regular sight in first grade next year.Scott made just one NRL appearance last year and lasted less than a half but made a lasting impression on the master Storm mentor.Brought into the side at centre at the ebb of a backline injury crisis, Scott broke his fibula not long into the match but played on, thinking he had just suffered a cork.He had a crack in his leg and played on for 10 minutes after that, that tells me hes made of pretty good stuff, Bellamy said.Hes been training great, hes ultra-competitive so theyre the sort of players we like here. Hell play plenty of first grade this year.The Storm beat 11 clubs for the former Cronulla junior and Australian schoolboys representatives signature in 2015, signing him to a three-year deal.Scott is capable of playing just about anywhere in the backline - he came through the junior ranks playing centre, was being groomed as a winger or fullback but has been standing in at No.6 during pre-season training.Bellamy said at this stage Billy Slater, who has been restricted to just eight appearances because of injury over the last two seasons, was fighting fit and would return at fullback.Munster was one of the teams best, filling in at No.1 for Slater, during the sides run to last years grand final, but was not being considered for the custodian role.Bellamy is assessing Munster, Scott, former North Queensland Cowboy Jahrome Hughes, youngster Brodie Croft and Ryley Jacks to partner Cooper Cronk in the halves.At this stage Billy will be playing fullback and well find another role for Cameron, Bellamy said.We are all a little bit wary but having said that, it is sort of in Billys hands and the medical staffs hands.When we start testing him out a little bit more than what we have we will just go from there. Yeezy 350 Store . The showiest items on Calgarys lot were forwards Mike Cammalleri and Lee Stempniak. Both will be unrestricted free agents this summer. Air Max 90 Online Store . Darren Helm scored on Detroits sixth attempt in the shootout and then Jonas Gustavsson stopped Andrew Shaws shot, lifting the Detroit Red Wings to a 5-4 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday night. http://www.cheapshoesstorewholesale.com/vapormax-online-outlet.html .Y. -- Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone has drawn on his Syracuse connections once again by hiring Rob Moore to take over as receivers coach. OKLAHOMA CITY -- The biggest addition in the offseason for the Boston Celtics was Al Horford. When they swiped him from the Atlanta Hawks, the Celtics quickly gained the high expectations of competing with the top teams in the East.However, whenever the Celtics take on squads considered to be potential title contenders this season, they came up short in games against the likes of Golden State, Cleveland, San Antonio and Houston.That steak was extended to 0-6 on Friday after a 101-94 loss to the Toronto Raptors.While the Celtics (13-10) refuse to make excuses for the defeats, except pointing fingers at their own play, there are reasons why they havent been at their best against the best. Injuries to key players early in the season played a role.Horford missed games against the Cavaliers and Warriors. Jae Crowder was on the bench in street clothes right next to him. Against the Raptors, guard Isiah Thomas sat out as he nurses a groin pull.Publicly, Boston coach Brad Stevens is trying to convey the positives of having his best players miss games in that it gives role players an opportunity to play big minutes.Its always tough because youre kind of always managing a curveball here or there, Stevens told reporters. But I look at it as a good thing in the long run with regard to more people are getting opportunities. And maybe this expedites Jaylen Browns learning curve, expedites Terry Roziers learning curve. Theyre getting to see things and go through things and do things that maybe they dont get as much when were fully healthy. It is what it is. You prepare with who you have available and you move forward.Thomas has already been ruled out of Bostons game with the Oklahoma City Thunder (14-9) on Sunday night at the Chesapeake Energy Arena. But, while the Thunder may not be considered one of the best teams in the NBA, they have a player who is makking a claim to be considered the best in the league in Russell Westbrook. Air Max 90 Clearance Sale. Westbrook has a streak of seven consecutive triples-doubles, which ties him with the modern record of Michael Jordan in the 1988-89 season.However, with his last triple-double coming in a loss, Westbrook had no interest in talking about tying Jordan. His opponents had no problem discussing the feat.You could just make a whole documentary about him, Rockets coach Mike DAntoni said. With his energy level and the way hes playing and what hes doing for this team, its remarkable. When Im not coaching against him, its fun to watch, but it wasnt much fun tonight.The Celtics lay claim to having the longest streak in the NBA of not allowing a triple-double. The last player to earn a triple-double against Boston was John Wall in 2014.Hes an animal. Everybody in this league knows Russ is an animal, Bostons Marcus Smart told ESPN.com. He deserves the respect he gets. He earns it. With a guy like that, you just have to go out and play your best and hope to contain him. You know hes going to get his. You just have to stop those other guys.If Boston is able to slow down Westbrook, the Thunder needs to see more of the Steven Adams that they saw Friday. He set a career high with 24 points, yet didnt play down the stretch because coach Billy Donovan wanted to use Jerami Grant.Adams said a lot of his points were due to the attention given to Westbrook.They always do send two guys. They always try and put two guys on Russ, three guys, whatever, Adams said. The reason I got open was that their weakside wasnt actually pulling across like other teams would do. That allowed me to roll down the lane without being touched at all. I was getting free runs. ' ' '
