Azhar Ali and Shan Masood struck fifties before Pakistan declared on 261-3 on day one of their tour match against Worcestershire, at New Road. The pair, yet to hit a half-century between them in the Test series with England, gained some valuable batting practice on Friday ahead of the third Test at Edgbaston, which begins on Wednesday.Stand-in skipper Azhar - who averages just 9.75 in four Test innings against England this summer - led the way with 81, striking 10 fours and one six in his 140-ball innings.Meanwhile Masood, whose series average is scarcely better at 17.75, gained a little confidence with 67 off 149 deliveries.Fringe players Iftikhar Ahmed (41no) and Mohammad Rizwan (49no) shared an unbroken fourth-wicket stand of 80 before the declaration came.Alex Kervezee (1-3Cool, Alex Hepburn (1-49) and Ed Barnard (1-30) all took a wicket each for Worcestershire, who have lost their last two Royal London One-Day Cup matches this week.In response, the hosts - who won the toss and put Pakistan into bat - closed on 30 without loss from 11 overs with Daryl Mitchell and Tom Fell both unbeaten on 14.Watch the third Test between England and Pakistan live on Sky Sports 2 from 10am on Wednesday. Logan Thomas Jersey . -- Deshorn Brown scored twice, the first coming 13 seconds into the game, and the Colorado Rapids beat the undermanned Seattle Sounders 5-1 Saturday night. O. J. Simpson Jersey . It all would have been for naught, however, had it not been for some clutch shooting in the fourth quarter by Kobe Bryant and a couple of equally critical hustle plays by Derek Fisher and Pau Gasol in the final minutes. Hoefl-Rieschs exit — from the downhill course into safety nets, then airlifted from the slope by helicopter — left Anna Fenninger of Austria favourite to win her first giant crystal trophy one month after becoming an Olympic champion. Doug Flutie Jersey . The Canucks figured to be active prior to Wednesdays trade deadline, getting a jump on things the previous day when they dealt goaltender Roberto Luongo to the Florida Panthers for netminder Jacob Markstrom and forward Shawn Matthias. Jordan Poyer Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla.PHILADELPHIA - The 76ers have a catchy anthem they play at every home game, a feel-good song with a lyric that implores fans to, Stomp your feet, everybody.The fans may as well dedicate that tune to Nerlens Noel.Coach Brett Brown had a simple pregame message for his rookie centre who had a touch of nerves when it came to demanding the ball: Run the floor, stamp your foot, post up and then go.And off Noel went to the best game of his brief career. Noel had 17 points, 11 rebounds and five blocked shots in the Philadelphia 76ers 96-81 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday night.Im going to have to really start demanding it, Noel said. Its on me to really step it up vocally and call for the ball.Michael Carter-Williams scored 22 points and the Sixers never trailed in only their third home win of the season. They put away the short-handed Pelicans in a hurry, making 10 of their first 14 shots and racing to a 16-point lead in the first quarter.New Orleans played without centre Anthony Davis and guard Jrue Holiday. Davis, averaging 24.2 points and 10.4 rebounds, sat out with a sprained left toe suffered late in Wednesday nights win at Detroit. Holiday, a former 76ers All-Star guard, missed a second straight game with right ankle inflammation.Holiday was traded to the Sixers for Noel in a 2013 draft-night deal. With Davis out of the lineup, Noel was fantastic, sinking his first four shots for 11 points in the first half. Carter-Williams scored 12 to help the Sixers take a 50-47 lead.Noel has struggled in his first season after sitting out last year with a torn ACL. He has flashed promise at times of the raw ability that made the Sixers believe they could build their forlorn franchise around him. He said he even wished he could have matched up against Davis.Noel, averaging 7.8 points and 7.1 rebounds, made 7 of 10 shots and even chipped in two steals.I want to play through the flow of the offence, he said, but when Im open, I should demand the bball.ddddddddddddrown said Noel had to become more assertive in the offence. Brown said Noel struggled with trying to be a good teammate and not appear to be selfish when he should be clearing position and have an arm up for the ball.He imposed his self on the game, Brown said. He did it all over the place, offence, defence. I think his stat line doesnt reflect the impact he had on the game.The Sixers shot 63 per cent (15 of 24) and scored a first quarter-high 33 points. They had a season-low two turnovers in the first half and had none between the 1:18 mark of the first quarter through 3:40 in the third.The Sixers never stopped in building a big lead: Carter-Williams and Luc Mbah a Moute hit consecutive 3s in the third to make it 64-51.Alexis Ajinca had 16 points and 13 rebounds for the Pelicans and Eric Gordon also scored 16.We didnt play with enough energy, Gordon said. They just kept on playing fast, knocking down 3s, hitting a lot of tough shots. We just compounded mistakes and werent playing that good of defence.TIP-INSPelicans: Pelicans G Tyreke Evans is from nearby Chester, Pennsylvania and needed about 30 tickets for friends and family. ... The Pelicans are 7-15 on the road. ... Omer Asik grabbed 14 rebounds.76ers: Former 76ers star and coach Maurice Cheeks attended the game as a fan in a seat in the seventh row. Cheeks No. 10 is retired. ... The 76ers beat the Pacers without George Hill and the Cavaliers without LeBron James and Kevin Love in their other two home wins. ... Larry Drew II made his NBA debut. ... Robert Covington scored 18 points.HOT 76ERSThe Sixers are 6-8 over their last 14 games after starting the season 2-23. They never trailed in a game for the first time this season and led by as many as 19 points. The 19-point lead also was their largest of the season. When you start getting wins, you get greedy, Brown said. You want them all.UP NEXTPelicans: Visit Toronto on Sunday.76ers: Visit Detroit on Saturday.
