Greater Western Sydney have won the citys most bruising and high-stakes AFL derby by 36 points. Now, coach Leon Cameron has grander plans in mind.GWS were anything but overawed on finals debut, increasing their lead at every break of Saturdays qualifying final against Sydney at ANZ Stadium.The expansion side, in their fifth season, are one win away from reaching the grand final after winning 12.19 (91) to 7.13 (55).The Giants will enjoy a week off before tackling Hawthorn or the Western Bulldogs in a home preliminary final, while the Swans face a SCG knock-out clash next week.Its great - theres a lot of people in there who have had five or six years of just hardship, Cameron said, referring to the clubs early struggles.Part of my job is to lk forward to whats happening in 14 days ... because someone will beat us in the prelim final if we do not come with the same attitude.I dont want to be sitting here in 14 days, saying we got carried away with ourselves. We didnt prepare.Anyone will beat anyone on any given day ... Im sure there are going to be more twists and turns over the coming weeks.Cameron admitted his team were in a gd spot to push for their first flag after the upset.But in no way do you lk at it and say were in the box seat ... you never write off the Hawks; you never write off the Swans, he added.Swans stars Josh Kennedy and Kurt Tippett both passed concussion tests after early hits, while hamstrung young gun Callum Mills played no part in the second half.The undermanned minor premiers rallied and were only two points behind early in the third term, when GWS key forward Jeremy Cameron tk control of the pulsating contest.There was nothing in it at halftime, Swans coach John Longmire said.Unfortunately, they got hold of us in the second half.The gd thing is weve earned the double chance ... we get another crack at it next week.Cameron bted three goals in the space of five minutes to give his side a 21-point lead at three-quarter time.In a low-scoring affair, it was always going to be t big a buffer - much to the dismay of most in the 60,222 crowd.It is the first time the leagues minor premiers have lost their opening final since West Coast in 2006 - although the Eagles battled back to defeat Sydney in the grand final that year.The Giants announced themselves as flag contenders long ago but there remained a question of how a side with 16 finals debutants would handle the heat of September.They started nervously but the answer had come by quarter-time, when GWS held a one-point lead despite conceding the opening two goals of the game.Steve Johnson finished with 22 possessions and five behinds but delivered arguably the turning point of the match when he tried to run through Kennedy in the first term.GWS laid 32 more tackles than the Swans, including a jarring sling tackle from Shane Mumford on Tippett. Taylor Hall Jersey . Then the Pacers gave Oladipo and his Orlando teammates the cold shoulder. Paul Georges buzzer-beating 3-pointer at the end of the third quarter spurred a 21-4 run, finally sending Indiana past the Magic 97-87 in a tougher-than-expected opening night matchup. Kyle Palmieri Jersey . Catch all the action on TSN2 at 11pm et/8pm pt. The nine-time Big 12 champion Jayhawks are positioning themselves for another title, as they have run out to a flawless 6-0 mark in conference play thus far. http://www.devilssale.com/authentic-mirco-mueller-devils-jersey/ . "It was nerve-wracking, but we pulled through," said Collaros, who threw four touchdown passes to lead the Toronto Argonauts (8-4) to a 33-27 win over the Calgary Stampeders (9-3) in front of 28,781 fans at McMahon Stadium.

PHOENIX -- The San Antonio Spurs continue to be the NBAs best road team.The Spurs turned a close game early in the fourth quarter into a romp, getting 18 points and 10 rebounds from Kawhi Leonard and 18 points and nine boards from Pau Gasol in a 107-92 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Thursday night.The Spurs (21-5) withstd the Suns attempt to push the tempo after San Antonio had played Wednesday, and held Phoenix to 40 percent shting. They improved to an NBA-best 14-1 on the road.We havent really thought about that much, guard Danny Green said. Tk one loss last time on the road, wanted to bounce back and play better.San Antonio tk a 10-point lead early in the third quarter, but the Suns wouldnt go away until the fourth. Leandro Barbosa flipped in a finger roll and was fouled with 10:08 to play in the game, and the Suns 77-76 lead was their first since midway through the second quarter.The Spurs responded with an 11-0 run and clamped down defensively to take control of the game for gd, and beat Phoenix for the eighth consecutive time.We have such a deep team, we really dont play our guys a lot of minutes. So our effort is pretty steady, Gasol said. When teams ramp it up and try to increase the intensity, they make their runs, they might get ahead at times, but then its hard for them to sustain it for 48 minutes.Devin Bkers 17 points led the Suns, who missed a chance to win consecutive games for only the second time this season.Our guys fought and gave all they could. Some games end up like this, coach Earl Watson said.Phoenix tk a 39-33 lead on Tyson Chandlers dunk with 4:44 to go in the first half, but the Spurs scored 18 of the final 22 points of the half for a 51-43 lead. Two came from a steal and dunk by Leonard and his 3-pointer with 39.5 seconds left.For us we have a couple of more hurdles to get over, but that is the biggest hurdle, the fourth quarter, Suns forward Jared Dudley said. When teams go on big runs we lose our confidence. We lse our composure.ddddddddddddTIP-INSSpurs: The Spurs moved to 6-1 in the second of back-to-back games this season. ...

Ulis and Williams got major minutes Wednesday night in a one-game stint with Northern Arizona, then were brought back to the Suns.IN MEMORY OF SAGERBoth teams coaches expressed sorrow regarding the passing of longtime NBA reporter Craig Sager, for whom a moment of silence was observed in the arena before tipoff.Popovich spoke only of Sager for about 2 minutes before the game. Watson said it was his and many other players dream to be interviewed by Sager.Every genius is never afraid of being exactly who they are. And he was a genius at his job, a genius at everything that hes done, Watson said. He stayed true to himself and we all embraced him.Bker wore a brightly colored Sager tribute T-shirt during warmups.KNIGHT TAKES TWO HITSSuns G Brandon Knight absorbed two hard fouls on consecutive possessions in the third quarter. He tk a forearm from Manu Ginobili, then was knocked off-balance and fell to the court with a thud when Patty Mills yanked his arm going up for a layup. Knight remained in the game and shot free throws after both fouls were reviewed and ruled common fouls, to the dismay of the home crowd.UP NEXTSpurs: Host New Orleans on Sunday night before a three-game trip.Suns: At Oklahoma City on Saturday.
