Each week, The Reporters put their thumbs out to the good and the bad in the world of sports. Guillermo Ochoa Jersey . This week they discuss the tactics of coaches Mike Tomlin and Jason Kidd, the strategy of the Raptors Rudy Gay, and the glow of victory in Saskatchewan. Bruce Arthur, National Post: My thumb is up to Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin, who jumped out of the way just in time to avoid a thumbs down. Tomlins Steelers were down 13-7 to the Ravens Thursday night when Baltimores Jacoby Jones took off on a kick return that was interrupted just enough by a certain Steelers head coach nonchalantly watching himself on the Jumbotron as he strayed onto the edge of the field. Tomlin leaped out of the way just in time; Jones had to change direction just enough that he was tackled. Tomlin grinned like the Cheshire Cat. Pittsburgh didnt win, but come on. There are lots of ways to sort of cheat, but using the Jumbotron as a rearview mirror? Timing your jump out of the way? Thumbs up to sort of cheating with style. Steve Simmons, Sun Media: My thumb is up to Jason Kidd, the struggling rookie coach with the Brooklyn Nets, who cant seem to do anything right in his first year removed from playing the game. Kidds nets cant win games but at least give him points for creativity: the other night he was out of timeouts late against the Los Angeles Lakers and while standing in front of the bench, quietly asked one of his players to bump him so he could inadvertently spill his soft drink on the court. The ploy worked. Sort of. He got his stoppage. But the NBA, lacking a sense of humour afterwards, and a sense of pity for the overmatched coach, fined Kidd $50,000. Maybe, in this season gone wrong, they should have looked the other way, applauding him for his guile. Michael Farber, Sports Illustrated: Because there is no "I" in either the word "stat" or "sheet," my thumb is up to Raptors forward Rudy Gay, who has banned those offending stat sheets from the post-game locker room. Gay says the only stat that matters is the "W." This is true - as long as, say, youre not trying to negotiate a contract. Anyway, this selfless stand is worthy of applause, unlike Gays shot selection and shooting efficiency. If his teammates could peruse the stats immediately after a game, they might note that Gay, shooting 38 percent on the season, has had games of 6-for-23 and 11-for-37. Gays right. Nothing to see here. Dave Hodge, TSN: My thumb is up to Saskatchewan - to the province, to the people, to the football fans, to the football team. The Grey Cup was their celebration, and for the rest of the country, it was a reminder of what sports can do to inspire, to enthuse, to make life better or just to make life seem better. It has long been said of the Saskatchewan Roughriders that theyre the favourite team of some CFL fans and the second-favourite team of all the others. Their Grey Cup victory and the reaction to it explained that for anyone who wasnt sure why the team in green was so easy to root for - you just had to watch last Sunday and look at the faces - in the crowd and under the watermelons and inside the helmets and you understood. We havent seen a sports story told so well by pictures alone in a long time. Rafael Marquez Mexico Jersey . - Nikita Jevpalovs scored 6:22 into the second overtime as the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada edged the visiting Rimouski Oceanic 2-1 on Tuesday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League playoff action. Javier Hernandez Mexico Jersey . On Wednesday, Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas hit back. In a passionate defence of himself and the London clubs medical staff, the Portuguese coach rebuked the "incompetent people" who have attacked Tottenham for allowing Lloris to continue playing after being briefly knocked unconscious against Everton on Sunday. . Simon (10-3) allowed three runs on five hits and three walks in 6 1-3 innings to break a tie with the Dodgers Zack Greinke and Cardinals Adam Wainwright for the NL lead in victories. Simon went to spring training as a relief pitcher and moved into the starting rotation when Mat Latos was recovering from elbow and knee surgeries.( - The defending NBA champion San Antonio Spurs will play their next two games outside the Alamo City, starting with Sundays showdown with the Denver Nuggets at the Pepsi Center. The Spurs have a trip to Portland slated for Monday and are 8-5 on the road. San Antonio had won three of four games until Fridays overtime loss to Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers. Lakers reserve Nick Young, not Bryant, took the final shot and hit a 3-pointer with 7.4 seconds left for a 112-110 win. Spurs future Hall of Famer Tim Duncan, who needed 15 points to pass Jerry West for 18th on the all-time scoring list, paced his team with 19 points and 18 rebounds. Manu Ginobili and Corey Joseph had 18 and 16 points, respectively, for San Antonio, which shot 46.7 percent and had 19 turnovers for 25 LA points. Joseph played the entire fourth quarter and overtime in place of Tony Parker, who returned to the lineup after a three-game absence due to a hamstring injury. Parker was limited to five points and two assists in 17 minutes. The more experience I get, the more confident I get, Joseph said. Im just confident out there doing me. Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard has missed back-to-back games with a hand bruise and is questionable Sunday. He is averaging 14.8 points per game. The Nuggets have lost five of their last six ggames and will play four straight and seven of the next nine at home. Rafael Marquez Jersey. In Saturdays 108-96 setback to the Houston Rockets at the Toyota Center, Dwight Howard returned from injury to post 26 points and 13 rebounds in leading the hosts to victory. NBA leading scorer James Harden (26.3 ppg) posted a triple-double of 24 points, 10 boards and 10 assists. Donatas Motiejunas had 25 points for Houston. Denver was led by Ty Lawsons 19 points and 12 assists, and Darrell Arthur scored a team-high 20 points off the bench. J.J. Hickson had 14 points and 10 rebounds, and the Nuggets shot 37.5 percent with 16 turnovers. We got dominated by their big guys inside, Nuggets coach Brian Shaw said. The Nuggets have a 6-4 home record and look to make up some ground in the Rockies over the next few days. Sundays matchup wont be easy, but the Nuggets (103.1 ppg) are scoring more than San Antonio (101.7 ppg). Denver, though, is allowing 104.8 points this season, 27th in the NBA. The Spurs are second in opponents scoring at 95.1 ppg. The Nuggets and Spurs will play the first of four meetings this season, and Denver lost all three matchups in 2013-14. Duncan averaged 22.0 points and nine rebounds in three games against Denver last season, while Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried recorded 19.0 points and 10.3 boards.
