MELBOURNE -- The Australian Boomers must finally announce themselves as one of the premier teams in world basketball, coach Andrej Lemanis says.The physical Aussies dominated the Pac-12 All-Stars in their second and final contest in Melbourne on Thursday night, surging to a commanding 93-63 win at Hisense Arena.Having finally sorted out his insurance paperwork after crossing from Cleveland to Milwaukee during the NBA off-season, star playmaker Matthew Dellavedova slotted back into the team but was subdued in collecting only two points, three rebounds and four assists.Patty Mills (29 points) and Aron Baynes (19 points and eight rebounds) were both superb against the visiting Americans, with the Boomers improving greatly from their nine-point win in the opening encounter.The squad departs Australia for Rio on Wednesday, and speaking after the victory, Lemanis said the Boomers had to finally prove their credentials on the biggest stage of all.With this group theres that little bit of a sense that its time - we need to do something special on the world stage, he said.Weve been talking about it long enough, but this group has a certain belief, and feels a sense of responsibility for Australian basketball - for all the good stuff that goes on, the junior development, all the stuff that goes beneath this [Boomers] - needs to be noted on the world stage.The Opals have done a great job of doing that, but the men havent yet, and this group wants to get that done.The Boomers have been united in their belief that they can defy the withdrawals of Ben Simmons and Dante Exum - and the possible unavailability of hobbled big man Andrew Bogut - and push for gold at Rio.Lemanis said while the Pac 12 All-Stars didnt offer the fiercest resistance, he was pleased by his teams improvement. He said the most impressive feature was the Boomers rugged defensive pressure, which repeatedly forced the visitors into mistakes and turnovers.It was a good improvement from Tuesday night - thats what this is about, getting a bit better each day, he said.I thought we made some significant improvement defensively.[On] Tuesday night - [we were] perhaps over-anxious, trying to do too much ... sometimes its about playing smarter not harder.For the most part we were ruthless [on defence] - we need to continue to find our rhythm and spacing, but also ... reducing our turnovers, making the easy play not the spectacular play.He added the coaches had to be smart in managing Dellavedovas workload ahead of the Olympics, due to his insatiable appetite for involvement.Delly was good for his first game back, Lemanis said. Hes practised once with the group, yesterday ... we had to be smart with easing him back in.The most important thing for us is [the Boomers first Olympics clash on] August 6 - he doesnt have to be great tonight, he doesnt have to be great on July 20, he needs to be great on August 6.The challenge for us is keeping the reins on Delly - hes such an incredible worker and we need to be smart about him not overloading himself and driving himself into the ground so by the third game of the Olympics hes got nothing left.

New Balance Running Shoes Outlet .Y. -- Syracuse has turned up the defence at the right time all season, and when High Point threatened to pull off a monumental upset the second-ranked Orange did what they do best with their quick hands and savvy play. CLEVELAND -- Sometimes youve just got to make it up as you go along, and thats exactly what the Houston Astros are doing.Day-to-day is a good description for us right now in September, manager A.J. Hinch said. Weve got guys here who didnt expect to be starting or even in the big leagues right now, so were just trying to get through this series.An injury to ace Dallas Keuchel has caused a shakeup in the Astros starting rotation. Tuesday they recalled Brad Peacock from Triple-A Fresno so he could start Tuesdays game against the Indians. That start was supposed to go to Keuchel, but he was scratched and is out indefinitely with left shoulder inflammation.Joe Musgrove was supposed to start Thursdays series finale in Cleveland, but David Paulino was also recalled from Fresno on Tuesday and he will make his major league debut Thursday. Musgroves start has been pushed back to Friday.Despite all the maneuvering, the Astros have pitched well in the first two games of the series, winning them both and outscoring Cleveland 10-5.The Astros have won three in a row overall and will try to make it four in a row Wednesday when they send Doug Fister (12-10, 3.91) to the mound against Clevelands Carlos Carrasco (10-7, 3.06).Fister has struggled of late. In his last five starts he is 2/3 with a 6.23 ERA. In one start against the Indians this year he pitched seven innings and gave up two runs and six hits. In 15 career starts versus Cleveland he is 5-3 with a 2.72 ERA.Carrasco has been pitcching well lately.dddddddddddd In his last three starts he is 2-1 with a 1.40 ERA, with 28 strikeouts and two walks in 19 innings. He has not faced the Astros this year. In five career appearances -- four starts -- against Houston he is 2-1 with a 2.05 ERA.The Indians need a good start from Carrasco because their offense has been spinning its wheels in the first two games against the Astros. In the first inning Tuesday night the Indians had runners at second and third and no outs, with the middle of the order coming up, but failed to score.That was a big turn of events. We have runners at second and third and no outs and dont score, and then they come back with three (in the top of the second), manager Terry Francona said.Indians cleanup hitter Mike Napoli was 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in the game. Napoli leads the Indians in home runs with 30, but he has hit only one since Aug. 11. The Indians could use some more production from their cleanup hitter.Francona, however, is familiar with Napolis player profile and the manager is willing to wait for the big bang he knows is coming.Hes getting his hits. He just isnt hitting them out of the park, Francona said. His home runs tend to come in bunches. We know, with his swing, there are some strikeouts in there, but were willing to wait for the good because we know it far outweighs the not so good.
