PORTLAND, Ore. Cheap Yeezy 350 Australia . - Erick Torres scored in the 79th minute to help Chivas USA tie Portland 1-1 on Saturday night, leaving the Timbers winless at 0-2-4. "Were behind the 8-ball," said Portland head coach Caleb Porter. "There are plenty of examples of teams that have started out slow. But in the end, were not where we want to be, at this point, and we need to step it up." Torres scored off a cross from Leandro Barrera for his fifth goal of the season for Chivas USA (1-2-3). It was situation Porter had hoped to avoid. "Torres was the key guy, we talked about it all week," Porters said. "Hes good at getting into spots to score." Will Johnson opened the scoring for Portland in the seventh minute. He scored for the first time this year after finishing with nine goals last season. Maximiliano Urruti forced a turnover and got the ball to Darlington Nagbe, who slid a pass between two defenders and into enough open space for Johnson to run into it and knock a right-footed shot past Dan Kennedy. According to Chivas USA head coach Wilmer Cabrera, Portlands goal was helped by an error in footwear selection. "We picked the wrong shoes," Cabrera said. "Sadly, Carlos (Bocanegra) slipped, and he realized he needed to change his cleats. And then he was on the sideline in the moment that we conceded that goal. They were playing with 11, we were playing with 10, in that moment, they took advantage and they scored a goal." Portland had a late chance when Johnson had a free kick just outside the penalty area, but his shot hit the post and went out of bounds. Chivas USAs Thomas McNamara was taken off on a stretcher in the 64th minute with what appeared to be a serious knee injury. The midfielder crumpled to the ground while running with the ball and trying to avoid Portland defenders. "Sadly, it looks pretty bad," said Cabrera. "Right now, we have to confirm, but its not promising for us. Thats the sad part of this game." Portland had its 55th straight sellout with a crowd of 20,814.

Reimer is winless (0-2-1) since returning from a six-week absence due to concussion-like symptoms. The Maple Leafs dropped a 4-2 decision to the hosting Washington Capitals on Friday. http://www.cheapyeezy350australia.com/ . The San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders are giving it a try, too.CLEVELAND -- Sitting on a stage last week alongside No. 1 overall draft pick Andrew Wiggins and new coach David Blatt, general manager David Griffin said he hoped this would be a monumental off-season for the Cavaliers. Its already been quite a summer. And LeBron James is still out there. Cleveland kept its momentum rolling early Tuesday by getting All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving to agree to a new, five-year, $90 million contract extension. Irvings deal, completed with a handshake in New York with owner Dan Gilbert, cements a commitment with Cleveland that wasnt always so strong. "Im here for the long haul Cleveland!!!! And Im ecstatic!!" Irving wrote on his Twitter account shortly after the agreement was reached. "Super excited and blessed to be here and a part of something special." For months, Irvings future with the Cavs seemed uncertain. There were reports he wasnt happy in Cleveland as well as speculation the Cavs didnt believe he was a cornerstone player. There were trade rumours and rumblings the team was not going to offer him the maximum extension. Whatever differences there may have been seem to have been worked out. Griffin, who likes to refer to his team as "family," has the Cavs united. James surely has noticed. The Cavs have waited four years for their chance to lure the four-time league MVP back home. This may be the perfect time. Because Irvings extension doesnt kick in until the 2015-16 season, the Cavs have room under the salary cap to pursue free agents. They would have to move some other contracts if the reports are accurate that James will only sign for a max deal. Griffin has said clearing space to accommodate a five-year, $120 million contract would be extremely easy. The hard part might be getting James to believe the Cavs, who have not made the playoffs since he left in 2010, are title contenders -- now. Theyve got some quality pieces for sure, but do they have enough? Irving, who played in a career-high 71 games this past season, has established himself as one of the NBAs elite point guards, and now that the contract situation is no longer an issue, it may unburden him to play the best basketball of his life. Cheap Authentic Yeezy 350. The 6-foot-8 Wiggins would have been the top pick a year ago if he hadnt gone to college and James has long admired the 19-year-olds gifts. Its somewhat interesting that Griffin said Wiggins potential greatness would come at shooting guard, perhaps leaving an opening at small forward for a certain former Cavalier. To entice James, the Cavs may need to make a blockbuster move. Theyve got some assets to play with and a trade involving talented guard Dion Waiters could bring back a starter. Griffin hinted that he isnt done remodeling the Cavs. "We need to continue to work on the defensive side of the ball," he said at Wiggins introductory news conference. "We need to get better from a basketball IQ standpoint, from a shooting perspective. And all of those moves will be forthcoming." For several years, the Cavs have been involved in trade rumours involving Kevin Love, who has one year left on his deal with Minnesota. If Cleveland can package the right pieces together, they may be able to pry Love away from the Timberwolves. Love and James were teammates four years ago in the London Olympics, where they helped the U.S. win a gold medal. Back then, James said that when he won his first championship with Miami, his thoughts quickly shifted to Cleveland and what might have been. "I wish I could have won one there," he said before a practice. "I could only imagine how the parade would have been down East Ninth Street. Of course I thought about it because Cleveland helped me get to that point. The days that I spent there helped me get to the point where I was able to finally win one. Its just unfortunate I wasnt able to do it there." Its possible James will re-sign with the Heat and the Cavs will move on without him. But if they decide to pursue the two-time champion in the days ahead and get a meeting with James, the Cavs can sell their team and tug at his heart. James has never rejected the idea of a return to Cleveland. Maybe this is the summer to mend fences and start anew in a familiar place. ' ' '
