HOUSTON -- All of the Montreal Impacts hard work on defence was undone by a single strange deflection. Randy White Jersey . A collision sent the ball spiralling over to Houstons Giles Barnes just inside the area. Barnes sent a sliding pass back to Will Bruin, whose shot deflected off Impact defender Eric Millers foot and bounded over goalkeeper Troy Perkins. That goal in the 40th minute was all the Dynamo needed to beat Montreal 1-0 on Saturday, and eclipsed an otherwise outstanding defensive effort by Miller in just his second MLS star. "It was a block that just went over," Impact coach Frank Klopas said. "Nothing that you can do about that. We had numbers back and got the block, but it is what it is." The Dynamo (2-0-0) scored four goals against the New England Revolution in last weeks season opener. That prolific offence was nowhere to be seen on Saturday as the Impact tightened up on defence. Miller and Hassoun Camara led a back line that pressed the Dynamo up high and kept scoring chances to a minimum. "We knew they had a very strong attack," Camara said. "We wanted to press high and stay tight with our opponent. We made it tough for them by not giving them space. It was a good game, but in the end we are not happy because we lost on the unlucky goal." Montreals attempts to move the ball into the middle found stiff resistance from the Dynamo defence in the first half. Brad Davis and Kofi Sarkodi were particularly formidable as they defended on the crosses. The Impact (0-2-0) turned up the attack as the second half opened. Patrice Bernier and Andrew Wenger were able to make more runs into the middle and numerous chances that failed to find the back of the net. "We needed to push the game," Klopas said. "There was a sense of urgency and all the guys pushed to be quicker on the ball and switch the point of attack. We need to create enough chances and then finish them. I think they will come." Bernier and Wenger worked well together in creating chances while also getting into position for passes from Hernan Bernadello and Felipe Martins. Wenger and Bernier both had late shots that forced Dynamo keeper Tally Hall to make diving saves. A shot by Wenger in the 63rd got by Hall, but was cleared off the goal-line by Sarkodie. "We created opportunities, but they dropped a lot of guys deep," Wenger said. "It was tricky for us. We played well overall and should have come away with a point, at least. I would have preferred to win ugly, but thats soccer." La el Collins Jersey . - IndyCar racing officials expressed confidence on Monday that the NOLA Motorsports Park will be able to complete more $4. L. P. Ladouceur Jersey . Rasmussen didnt have a decision during his four appearances in May, when he gave up two hits and no runs in two innings. Toronto used five relievers while pulling off the second-biggest comeback in franchise history on Friday night, rallying from an 8-0 deficit to a 14-9 win.OAKLAND, Calif. - Spencer Hawes had 22 points and 13 rebounds to help the Cleveland Cavaliers erase an 18-point first-half deficit on the way to a 103-94 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Friday night. Dion Waiters added 18 points and Luol Deng and Kyrie Irving had 16 apiece for the Cavaliers, who overcame a slow start to take the game over in the final three quarters and snap a six-game losing streak against the Warriors. Stephen Curry scored 27 points on his 26th birthday and Draymond Green added 18 but it wasnt enough to prevent another bad home loss by the Warriors, who were without starting guard Klay Thompson. He was in the Bahamas for his grandfathers funeral. Golden State had won five straight at home following a 4-6 stretch in January and February that included losses to lesser teams like Denver, Minnesota, Washington and Charlotte. This game didnt look like it would follow that pattern the way it started with Golden State taking a 16-point lead less than 6 minutes into the game. But the Cavaliers got back into it in the second quarter and broke it open after Curry hit back-to-back 3-pointers that put Golden State up 62-58 midway through the third. But Cleveland ended the quarter on a 13-3 run that included two 3-pointers from Irving to take an 84-71 lead heading into the fourth — a stunning 29-point turnaround in the middle two quarters. But Irving scored seven points in the fourth quarterr, including a long 3-pointer that made it 95-80 with less than 6 minutes to play to keep the Cavs in control. Michael Irvin Jersey. The Warriors got off to a fast start with David Lee scoring nine of the games first 13 points and Golden State going up 20-4 following back-to-back 3-pointers by Andre Iguodala midway through the quarter. The lead grew to 36-18 early in the second before the Cavaliers erased it to the shock of the home crowd. Matthew Dellavedova, who starred in college at nearby Saint Marys, made a pair of 3-pointers and assisted on another by Waiters as part of a 13-0 spurt. The run extended to 23-2 as Waiters came from out of bounds to steal a ball from Andrew Bogut and laid it in and then hit a 3-pointer the next time down. Bogut was called for a technical foul after that shot and Jarrett Jacks free throw have the Cavaliers a 41-38 lead. Harrison Barnes put Golden State back in front with consecutive baskets and Golden State led 53-52 at the half.
