CLEVELAND -- This week, everyone gets to watch Johnny play football. Wholesale Paul George Shoes . The Browns have relaxed their media limitations to see rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel practice. Manziel, who will compete with Brian Hoyer for Clevelands starting job, will take part in the clubs three-day organized team activities, which began Tuesday. The Browns are allowing national media to cover the workout after limiting access for their rookie minicamp last week to only local reporters and photographers. First-year Browns coach Mike Pettine only permitted access for 15 minutes of practice on Saturday. Manziel threw three passes and did some stretching during the period the workout was open. Sundays workout was closed. On Wednesday, Clevelands entire practice session will be open to both local and national media members. Pettine, who was on New Yorks coaching staff when the Jets acquired celebrated quarterback Tim Tebow, is trying to contain the hype surrounding Manziel, the flashy Texas A&M quarterback Cleveland selected in the first round of the NFL draft. The Browns received push back from some national outlets upset about being denied credentials. "Were well aware of what the league rules are and well open it up to the national media this week," Pettine said at a banquet in Akron on Monday night. "I think its once a week is the policy. Were not going to go overboard with it. There will be a limited amount of time you can film and certain players will be available certain days. Thats how well go moving forward." Pettine believes too much was made of last weeks media restrictions. His objective was to keep the media to a minimum so as not to cause a distraction for his young players. "It was overblown a little bit," he said. "It was more rewarding the local media than it was punishing. The words ban and punishing, to me that was nonsense." The Browns havent always received positive media feedback, mostly because the team has been a perennial loser and there has been nearly constant turnover with the front office and coaches. Pettine knows one way to change the Browns -- and Clevelands -- national perception. "The only way well get credibility with the national media is if we win," he said. "I was more concerned about the how the hype would affect the team, and thats my primary concern is the team. Its all about football. Whether we have some national people that are upset with us, so be it. Were going to undersell and overproduce." Paul George Shoes Deals . The Blue Jackets announced the injury through their official Twitter account Friday afternoon. Gaborik, 31, has scored five goals and six assists in 17 games with the Blue Jackets in 2013-14.

Cavaliers shooting guard Craig Ehlo makes a solid play on the ball, but still Jordan hits the amazing shot.LOS ANGELES -- Nobody in the Minnesota locker room had to say much before the game about the Timberwolves 22-game losing streak to the Lakers. The Wolves mostly knew about their dismal history in this matchup, and they came out apparently determined to rewrite it in the first quarter alone. Kevin Martin scored 27 points, Kevin Love had 18 of his 25 during Minnesotas 47-point opening quarter in a skid-snapping 113-90 victory Sunday night. Ricky Rubio had 12 points, 14 assists and 10 rebounds for the Timberwolves, who hadnt beaten the Lakers since March 6, 2007. Minnesota took a 28-point lead with a 27-2 run, reducing the Staples Center crowd to scattered boos during the highest-scoring quarter in the Timberwolves franchise history. The Wolves maintained a healthy advantage all night in their first win over the Lakers at Staples Center since Dec. 2, 2005, ending the longest active streak between two NBA opponents. "We had lost so many straight to the Lakers that we thought we were due for one," said Love, who also had 13 rebounds while hitting four 3-pointers. "We knew, the guys that had played here. We had talked about it, that we hadnt had much success, but we werent thinking about anything numbers-wise. We just wanted to come out and think about this year." Minnesota won with ease -- something thats almost never happened in this matchup. Corey Brewer scored 17 points and Nikola Pekovic had 14 points and 10 rebounds as the Wolves punctuated their 5-2 start to the season by routing sending the Lakers crowd home early. Martin had another monster game in his strong start to the season, improving to 18 for 28 on 3-pointers in the last five games while averaging 27 points. And Rubio supplemented his second career triple-double with five steals, becoming just the second player in franchise history with at least five steals during a triple-double game. "Everybody was making shots," said Rubio, the first opponent to record a triple-double against the Lakers since LeBron James on Christmas 2010. "We knew wed lost the last 22 or something like that. It was a good game for us to end it." Steve Blake scored 19 points with five 3-pointers, and Jodie Meeks added 16 for the Lakers, who have lost five of seven -- and got even more injury concern about one of their stars. Steve Nash played 13 minutes before sitting out with a back injury for Los Angeles, which never got closer than 14 points down the sttretch. Paul George Shoes Outlet. Nash, the NBAs oldest player at 39, will be evaluated on Monday by Dr. Robert Watkins, who performed Dwight Howards back surgery last year. The Lakers have kept Nash out of the lineup twice already this season to preserve his health, but Nashs back has bothered him for years. "You could call it back, nerves, pain in the hamstring," Nash said. "It all gets a little convoluted, but its all basically the same since last year. ... Im just trying to figure it out, trying to play through it and at the same time be smart. Its tough. I really want to play. To be so limited is frustrating." Pau Gasol managed just 11 points and 11 rebounds for the Lakers, who had won 13 straight at home over Minnesota. Kobe Bryant played in all but one game during the Lakers winning streak in this matchup, but the fourth-leading scorer in NBA history still isnt close to making his season debut after surgery in April. The Wolves sizzled from the start, with Martin and Love humiliating the Lakers defenders with a series of increasingly improbable jumpers and drives. Los Angeles largely failed to defend the perimeter, but Martin and Love also hit shots in tight coverage while making 12 of their 14 first-quarter shots. "We came out soft," Los Angeles coach Mike DAntoni said. "They made some tough shots, but they did score 47 points. And I dont care what kind of shots they made. There just wasnt enough intensity into the defence, and we paid for it." Minnesota led 17-14 before scoring 27 of the next 29 points in a vicious 4:47 span, starting with three consecutive 3-pointers. JJ Bareas layup put the Wolves up 44-16, and they finished the quarter with a 47-23 lead. "Forty-seven points in one quarter ... its outrageous," Gasol said. The Timberwolves cooled off from there, but were too far ahead to be threatened. The Lakers trimmed the lead to 90-76 heading to the fourth quarter after 11 third-quarter points from Blake and nine more from Meeks, but Rubio and Brewer kept the Wolves ahead down the stretch. NOTES: Minnesota stays in the building to face the Clippers on Monday night. The Lakers return Tuesday to host New Orleans after last weeks loss to the Pelicans. ... UCLA product Shabazz Muhammad got no discernible reaction when he entered the game for Minnesota in the fourth quarter. ... Xavier Henry had a career-high eight rebounds for the Lakers, but he struggled again with 1-for-8 shooting. ' ' '
