MEMPHIS, Tenn. Alexandre Lacazette Arsenal Jersey . – Marc Gasols dominance is making one of the NBAs best frontcourts even better.Gasol had 30 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Memphis Grizzlies to a 107-91 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday night. It marked the second straight game Gasol has recorded at least 30 points.The victory left Memphis with the leagues best record (12-2) behind a more aggressive Gasol, who is complementing his jumper with moves to the basket this season.There was no doubt in my mind that Marc would be aggressive, point guard Mike Conley said, adding: Once you see the 12-2 start, were going to tell him to go get 30 every night.Gasol opened the game with a pair of jumpers, then began taking the ball to the basket. The result was 12 first-quarter points as Memphis erased the Clippers only lead of the game and built the advantage to 25 by the fourth.When you make jumpers, it forces the defence to come out, Gasol said. .It creates shots for other people, and Im happy with that.Six Grizzlies reached double figures. Courtney Lee added 13 points for Memphis. Tony Allen had 12 points, while Beno Udrih and Quincy Pondexter had 11 points apiece off the Memphis bench. Zach Randolph had 10 points.The Clippers, who won their first two on a seven-game road swing, didnt execute early, and didnt have an answer for Gasol.We really have to come out executing and aggressive and hit first, said Chris Paul, who led the Clippers with 22 points, five assists and four steals. We really have to do a better job of doing it consistently.Jamal Crawford scored 19, and J.J. Redick finished with 15, going 3 of 6 from outside the arc.Blake Griffin scored 12 points, but was 5 of 17 from the field.Los Angeles, which was averaging 103.5 points, had its nine-game streak of scoring at least 100 points on the road end.Once they got the lead, it was hard to get back into the tempo of the game, Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. I thought the second half we lost our way a little bit.Paul tried to guide the Clippers back into the game after halftime, scoring 13 points in the third, and Los Angeles got within eight points. But Memphis rebuilt the lead to 25 points in the fourth as Rivers relied on his reserves to try and erase the deficit. The Los Angeles bench made a run to get within 15, but Memphis never let them get any closer.Rivers recognized that a different Gasol has made the Grizzlies more dangerous.I dont know if he has been on a good diet, but he looks great and is playing great, Rivers said. The Grizzlies seem to have that edge. They arent messing around.___TIP-INS:Clippers: Los Angeles seven-game road trip will cover 7,231 miles before the Clippers return home on Dec. 1 to face Minnesota. .The Clippers 25-point deficit in the second half was not their largest of the season. They trailed by 29 Nov. 5 against Golden State.Grizzlies: Reserve G Nick Calathes played for the first time this season after completing a 20-game suspension handed down at the start of the first round post-season series against Oklahoma City last spring for violating the leagues banned substance policy. .The victory gave the Grizzlies a 37-36 advantage in the overall series.VIRUS VANQUISHED: Memphis had its full complement of players for the first time in the last three games. Five players caught a stomach virus before last Wednesdays game in Toronto, and two more caught the bug before Fridays game against Boston.HE SAID IT: The first two games (of the road trip), I think our defence was a little bit better. (Sunday) we didnt move the ball as well. We really didnt push the pace. — Jamal Crawford, on the Clippers struggles.UP NEXTClippers: Visit Charlotte on Monday.Grizzlies: Visit Lakers on Wednesday. Ainsley Maitland-Niles Arsenal Jersey .

The CFL Players Association and CFL agreed in principle on a five-year contract Saturday. The players have until 8 p.m. ET to vote. The CFL board of governors will hold its ratification vote Friday afternoon. A majority of players — 50 per cent plus one — on six of the nine CFL teams must support the deal for it to be accepted. If the agreement is rejected, the union will notify the CFL and try resuming talks. A strike is also a possibility given the tentative deal wasnt well received by some players. Many were unhappy that the agreement calls for a $5-million salary cap in the first year after the CFLPA had originally sought a $6.24-million cap. Last year, the CFL salary cap was $4.4 million. The CFL also got the players to agree to its gross revenue formula that would trigger the renegotiation of the cap or entire collective agreement. The players, who initially wanted the CBA to include revenue sharing, wanted the cap or entire agreement renegotiated if league revenues increased by more thhan $18 million — excluding the Grey Cup — in the third year of the deal. Laurent Koscielny Arsenal Jersey. . But the union ultimately agreed to the CFLs figure of $27 million. The union did get the option year on CFL contracts eliminated, excluding rookies. Also, the players practice day, for the most part, remains at 4.5 hours but can be increased to a maximum of six hours while teams will hold just one padded practice a week during the season. Toronto Argonauts players met Wednesday night to discuss the agreement and centre Jeff Keeping, a member of the union executive, said good questions were asked. „Im happy the guys have all the facts,“ Keeping said. „I feel at the end of the day the guys are more informed than they were prior to that. „The mood is mixed. Guys are entitled to their own opinion and every man is going to make his own choice.“ Keeping said players will be able to vote electronically until 8 p.m. ET, after which the ballots will be tabulated. He added the results are expected later Thursday evening with the union releasing them sometime Friday. ‚ ‚ ‚
