(SportsNetwork. Shareef Abdur-Rahim Grizzlies Jersey .com) - For one night the Miami Heat proved they can win without LeBron James and theyll go for another 2-0 start Saturday with a visit to Philadelphia. The Heat handed the Washington Wizards a 107-95 setback Wednesday in South Beach, as Chris Bosh muscled his way to 26 points and 15 rebounds. Bosh made nine of his 18 attempts from the floor for Miami, which made 48.1 percent for the game and received a career high 23 points from Norris Cole. Its one game. We need to stay focused on what we need to do as a team and individually, said Bosh, who scored 16 points in the second quarter and signed a five-year $118 million deal in the offseason to remain in Miami. Bosh enters Saturday just one 20-point game shy of tying Shaquille ONeal for the eighth-most in team lore. Dwyane Wade had 21 points and Luol Deng 12 in his Miami debut. Josh McRoberts, Udonis Haslem and Danny Granger all sat out the season opener with various injuries. The availability off all three is unknown for Saturday, but all are expected to be active. McRoberts, a free-agent signing in the offseason, is listed as probable. After visiting south Philly, the Heat will return home for two games versus Toronto and Houston. The 76ers dropped to 0-2 Friday night, falling to the Milwaukee Bucks at the Bradley Center in a battle of the teams with the worst records in the NBA last season. Philly suffered a 93-81 setback in Milwaukees home opener, but the Sixers had chances. The Sixers failed to score a single point in the final 8:21, missing all 13 of their shots and turning the ball over four times. We missed a lot of shots ... We just couldnt score, Sixers head coach Brett Brown said. Nerlens Noel posted his first career double-double, finishing with 14 points and 10 boards for the Sixers, who lost at Indiana in their first game of the year Wednesday night. I stayed within myself and looked to take better shots, said Noel, who struggled to six points in his NBA debut on Wednesday. Hollis Thompson was the 76ers leading scorer with 15 points against the Bucks. Tony Wroten also posted 14 points, but a technical foul in the fourth quarter hurt the team. Rookie K.J. McDaniels managed 12 off the bench. Miami lost to Philadelphia, 114-110, last Oct. 30, then evened the series with a 101-86 victory on Jan. 17. The Sixers took the series thanks to a 100-87 win on April 16, but Miami is still 16-2 in the last 18 games between the teams. The Heat have won eight of their last nine at Philadelphia.

All very adult, but he hasnt completely outgrown the man who celebrated the Calgary Stampede two years ago by climbing on the back of a party bus and falling off. He sustained road rash on his bottom severe enough to put him in the hospital. Winning downhill races requires recklessness, so Osborne-Paradis isnt willing to let the foolhardy part of himself disappear completely. "You cant kill that," he says. "You can scrape a bit of him off, but you cant kill him." His Canadian teammate Jan Hudec doesnt want to see it disappear either because that devil-may-care ingredient is necessary when attempting speeds that are literally breakneck. "We all hope he has pre-road rash Manny left in him," Hudec said. "Besides the personality and the energy it brings to the team, I think its part of his winning attitude. "Im a little bit the same way. I live my life pretty loosey-goosey by the seat of my pants. I dont plan ahead, but it works for me for skiing. Thats how I race as well. I live in the moment. Manny is fairly similar that way." Erik Guay, Hudec and Osborne-Paradis are the Canadian downhill teams decorated elder statesmen at the season-opening World Cup in Lake Louise, Alta. John Kucera would also be included in that group if the Calgarian wasnt sidelined with an inner ear condition. The downhill is Saturday followed by Sundays super-G. Training was cancelled Thursday because of a power problem affecting the lift to the start hut. Repairs didnt leave enough time to get 91 racers from the top to the bottom, although the competitors were able to free ski the lower sections of the course. Guay had the fastest time in training Wednesday, with Osborne-Paradis and Hudec also in the top 10. Guay and Hudec, both 32, and Osborne-Paradis, 29, have stood on World Cup podiums multiple times during their careers. Theyve morphed from guys who just wanted to ski fast to men running their individual ski empires of businesses, sponsorships and charities. "Business, families, girlfriends, fiancees, wives, we didnt even know what those words were and how to use them five years ago," Osborne-Paradis says. "You know, young and dumb. Its a different time of your life. Theres guys who are 36 in the race and theres guys who are 20 and you can totally tell the difference." How to square their adult responsibilities with a certain disregard for their own safety on the mountain is a balancing act, says Hudec. "I think the older you get, the more cherished it becomes and you put it in your backpack in a safety deposit box and you carefully bring it to the hotel and youre like dont lose this. Its my recklessness. If I lose this, Im screwed," Hudec explains. "You have tto leave it at home when you go to the store or your business and youre telling people to be responsible and be on time. Bryant Reeves Grizzlies Jersey. They cant know youre that person on the hill. Its actually a really funny challenge." Vancouvers Osborne-Paradis returned last season from a catastrophic knee injury suffered in January, 2011. Hudec, from Calgary, has undergone seven knee surgeries, including six on the same knee. Injuries plant seeds of doubt that have to be overcome in the start hut. Bravado helps get past the mental barriers to 130 kilometres per hour. "I think theres a lot of fear, but you learn to adapt to that," Osborne-Paradis says. "Recklessness for sure, its the only way to win. "You can ski pretty and have a good run and come 20th your whole career if you wanted to. To win, you need to be taking chances and you need to risk the fact that you might end up in the (safety) nets. Thats the only way to win." The 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, are just weeks away and this could be the Olympic swan song for some of Canadas veteran downhillers. Osborne-Paradis says he has never worked so hard to prepare for a season of racing. "Ive taken the initiatives and worked better with my sports psych, better with my biofeedback, better with stretching and mobility," he says. "The stuff that, as you get older, makes more a difference than going out and grunting. "As you get older, you need to learn how to stay in the game and stay active in this sport. You take your knowledge and your history of running all the courses and use that to your advantage and build up a better mental capacity of what needs to be done at each event. To get to know yourself a little bit more makes you a better athlete." Similar to NHL goaltenders who donate money to a charity for each shootout they earn, Osborne-Paradis has come up with a strategy for Right To Play, the international organization that empowers children facing adversity through sport. Osborne-Paradis wears Right To Plays logo on his helmet instead of a corporate brand. Through his business contacts, hes raised an initial $25,000 for the organization. More will be donated for top-10 or podium performances he achieves this season. A win, for example, is worth another $15,000 contribution. If Osborne-Paradis attracts a headgear sponsor this season, he intends to wear Right To Plays logo on his suit. He would exponentially increase the bonus money to the organization, so a win would be worth $30,000. "Obviously theres the personal drive of achieving your goals, but when youre skiing for a cause bigger than yourself, the better you ski and the faster you ski and the more other people will benefit from that," he says. "Its a great feeling and on those off days it really helps you push through the cold weather and the fear of racing or whatever." ' ' '
