[the starters] cant play 48 [minutes]."

MILAN, Italy -- Goran Pandev scored twice for Napoli as it let slip a two-goal lead before settling for a thrilling 3-3 draw with Serie A leader Juventus on Tuesday at the Stadio Sao Paolo. Jose Juan Barea Jersey . Marek Hamsik, who had earlier missed a penalty, headed Napoli in front in the 23rd minute and Pandev added a second goal five minutes from halftime. Alessandro Matri got Juventus back into the game just after the break but Pandev was on hand to score again in the 68th. However, Marcelo Estigarribia recorded his first goal in Italian football shortly afterwards and Simone Pepe levelled matters in the 80th minute. Juventus remains unbeaten this season and is now two points clear of AC Milan, while Napoli moves into sixth, eight points behind Antonio Contes team. "There was an important response from the whole group, if their hearts werent in it, we wouldnt have come back," Conte said. "Today Napoli and the atmosphere at the San Paolo would have stopped any team. I am proud to be the coach of these lads. " It was Napolis fourth game in 11 days and coach Walter Mazzarri blamed fatigue for his players capitulation. Juventus, unlike Napoli, is not involved in the Champions League this season. "Today the glass is half empty," Mazzarri said. "We were spectacular in the first half but then in the second we paid for the fact weve had too many games recently. We should have kept our focus for the last 20 minutes. We were waning and that showed; when we were 3-1 up I thought we would win, even though we were tired. Juventus had the better of the opening exchanges and should have scored in the third minute when Pepe let fly from distance with a fierce shot that whistled just wide of the left post. Shortly afterwards, Juventus defender Stephan Lichtsteiner found an unmarked Mirko Vucinic but the Montenegro forwards strike across goal was also off target. The match turned on its head in the 14th minute when Napoli won a penalty, with Andrea Pirlo bringing down Ezequiel Lavezzi just inside the area as the Argentine was about to cross. Hamsik sent a perfect penalty into the bottom right corner, but the referee ordered a retake because of encroachment and the Slovak blazed his second attempt over the bar. Napoli was in front soon after, though, when Christian Maggio nodded down Lavezzis free kick for Hamsik to head home. Maggio also had a part in Napolis second goal. As he and Pirlo clashed in an attempt to win possession, the ball fell to Pandev, who did well to evade his marker and fire across goal into the bottom left corner. Juventus was back in the game shortly after the interval when Arturo Vidal sent a defence-splitting pass across for the unmarked Matri to strike past keeper Morgan De Sanctis. Matri had the ball in the back of the net minutes later, but the Italy striker was rightly adjudged to be offside. Napoli could have extended its lead when Lavezzi did brilliantly to avoid the attentions of three Juventus defenders and muscle his way into the area but his shot was straight at goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon. Pandev, who had earlier signalled to the bench his need to come off the pitch, scored his second after controlling Maggios cross with his back to goal before turning and firing into bottom right corner. The on-loan Inter striker was substituted minutes later to a standing ovation. Juventus reduced the deficit in the 72nd minute when Matri found Estigarribia at the far post and the Paraguay winger slotted past De Sanctis. The Turin side equalized 10 minutes from time when Pepe picked up the ball on the halfway line and raced towards goal. He attempted a pass, but the ball rebounded back to him off Napoli defender Frederic Fernando, and Pepe coolly fired home. "Im disappointed because I thought we had won it 3-1 and, to make it worse, one of our defenders helped in their third goal," Mazzarri said. "We had no luck." Zaza Pachulia Jersey . Folaus second-half tries clinched the Waratahs third bonus-point win. The Waratahs took an 11-8 lead to halftime after an indecisive first spell but tries to Folau and Peter Betham in the first eight minutes of the second half gave them breathing space. Devin Harris Jersey . He failed, so for the third, he shortened up, trying to protect the plate. That ball ended up going out and, boy, did the Arizona Diamondbacks need it.TORONTO - Not surprisingly, Terrence Ross rookie year was filled with the highs and lows you would expect from a 21-year-old. At times he dazzled, usually with his undeniable athleticism - winning the slam dunk contest at All-Star weekend - but just as often, if not more often, he would come back down to earth with the inconsistency and mental lapses associated with most first-year players. The Raptors eighth overall pick in 2012 averaged 6.4 points and 2.0 rebounds in 73 games but shot just 41 per cent from the field and saw his role minimized following the midseason trade for Rudy Gay. To his own admission, the guard was not physically or mentally prepared for the grind of an NBA season; that realization hitting him immediately in training camp a year ago. "I didnt know what to expect," he said of last years camp. "I didnt know how hard it would be, I didnt know how it would wear on your body. I think I was just kind of warn down from the whole draft process so I think that kind of took effect but this year I took time off, relaxed and came back prepared and ready to play." Now a 22-year-old sophomore, Ross knows what to expect three days into his second camp as a professional. "I feel like its easier now," he admitted Thursday after practice. "I havent been getting sore, I feel fresh, Im always loose, always ready to go [and] Im in great shape so I just feel good to go." His coaches have noticed the change but are still mindful of the challenge that faces Ross going into his second year; a challenge that will determine if hes ready to take his game to the next level. "Defensively he was competing [and] offensively he was knocking down shots," Dwane Casey said of Ross stand out practice from Wednesday. "So his thing is being consistent, bringing the consistency to his game. Thats his next step because last year was a typical rookie year, up and down." "[He] had a great start then tailed off, then bounced back again," Casey continued. "So his thing is bringing it every day and every time he steps on the floor." "But hes a great kid, hes giving everything he has, its just [the] consistency." Open Competition After three days back at the Air Canada Centre, Casey continues to rave about his teams effort level and competitive spirit early in camp. Although the Raptors third-year head coach spotted some tired legs in Thursday mornings practice - following two long days and heavy conditioning drills Wednesday evening - he has been impressed with the focus of his players. For many of them, their roles - and in some cases their jobs - are at stake. Swingman Jason Kidd Jersey. Although Casey has mixed up units over the first few days, the incumbent starting five of Gay, Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, Amir Johnson and Jonas Valanciunas is fully expected to reclaim their spot above the teams depth chart. Of the 12 other players in camp, only four are holdovers from last season and with an infusion of added depth comes an open competition for second-unit minutes. "Its open," Casey stated. "Were looking for those spots. We have a lot of people who can step in and take that opportunity. There are going to be minutes there, [the starters] cant play 48 [minutes]." The Raptors ranked eighth in bench scoring for the first half of last season, getting 37.5 points per game from their reserves but dropped to 25th (27.3 points per) after the acquisition of Gay, as the starters were asked to eat up more minutes. "Were looking for that second unit and that was our nemesis [last year]," said Casey. "So whoever that second group is has to create an identity to come in and score and defend, either hold serve or increase the score, you cant go the other way." Veteran D.J. Augustin is battling rookie Dwight Buycks for the backup point guard job behind Lowry - although Augustin should have a leg up going into the season based on experience - while Ross, Landry Fields and new comers Steve Novak and Austin Daye should push for minutes behind DeRozan and Gay on the wing. Up front, Tyler Hansbrough - who has been a standout early in camp - should be the first big off the bench while Quincy Acy and Aaron Gray return but may only factor in should injuries or foul trouble occur, or if Casey chooses to stay with a big lineup. The Raptors have one final roster spot available and three camp invitees - forward Chris Wright, guards Julyan Stone and Carlos Morais - vying for it. Its still too early to say whether one has stood out above the rest, per Casey, but the performance of those three players - all on non-guaranteed deals - should determine whether the team chooses to fill that 15th spot. Off To Halifax The team will continue training camp on the east coast as they return to Halifax for two practices on Friday and an intrasquad game Saturday. Unlike last fall, when they held five days of camp in Halifax, the team wont have time for much sightseeing this time around. Aside from a players-only dinner planned for Thursday evening it will be strictly business before they head to Boston for their first of eight preseason games Monday. Cheap JerseysWholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
