LAKE FOREST, Ill. Jonathon Simmons Jersey . - Jay Cutler cant remember the last time he saw Matt Forte winded in a game.The Chicago Bears running back runs hills in the off-season and spends a good chunk of his time on the treadmill, making sure hes ready once the season approaches.Whenever we do take him out he seems to be sitting on the sideline just waiting to come back in, Cutler, the Bears quarterback, said. You never see him go over and look for oxygen or sit down and hes completely gassed.Clearly, the two-time Pro Bowl running back has plenty left in the tank. If anyone was wondering, Forte made that clear last week against the Green Bay Packers.Forte ran for 122 yards after being held to just 136 through the first three games, and the Bears racked up 235 in all for their highest rushing total in 26 years.The problem was the Bears had trouble finishing drives, and they still managed to lose by 21 points to their NFC North rivals, despite all they gained on the ground. Still, the fact that the running game got going was a positive, even if Green Bay basically dared them.Forte took advantage, averaging 5.3 yards on his 23 carries. So did KaDeem Carey, who ran for 72 yards. And, there might be more opportunities for Chicago this week considering Carolina ranks just 27th against the run.I think to be motivated by stats is a little bit selfish, and Im not a selfish player, Forte said. I want everybody on the offence to succeed. What motivates me is a lot of things.He said hes motivated simply by the opportunity that he has. He wants to make it last. But he also wants to be seen as more than just a good running back.He wants to be remembered for his efforts in the community and the work he put in on the field.I think Im pretty important to the offence, just as far as what we do as an offence, whether its running the ball and being involved in the passing game and blocking, Forte said. We have a lot of important parts on our offence. Its not just me.Forte is in his seventh season, a time when running backs tend to decline. But hes not showing any obvious signs of decline.One of the leagues most versatile running backs, he ran for a career-high 1,339 yards last season. But the opportunities werent there in the first three games this year.A big reason for that was who the Bears were playing a€” Buffalo, San Francisco and the New York Jets.Those three teams boast the leagues top three run defences at the moment, with the Jets allowing a league-low 63.2 yards per game.Given that, it was not exactly shocking that the Bears decided to rely more on Cutlers arm than Fortes legs. They felt they had to throw the ball to win.Forte carried 17 times for 82 yards in the opener at home against Buffalo to go along with 87 yards receiving. The Bears lost that game but pulled off prime-time victories on each coast the next two weeks, beating San Francisco and New York.There werent many handoffs in either game, with Forte carrying 12 times for 21 yards against the 49ers, and 13 times for 33 yards against the Jets.It was not just who the Bears were playing. The execution in the run game was off. But against Green Bay, the openings were there.After watching the film, we got to see the issues with our running game werent necessarily what other teams were doing to us, said left guard Matt Slauson, who hopes to return after missing three games with an ankle injury. It was us not being perfect with our technique, not being perfect with our steps. The Green Bay game, the guys did a tremendous job. They put it all together for Matt. Melvin Frazier Jersey .com) - Nathan MacKinnon scored the winning goal in the shootout as the Colorado Avalanche rallied for a 3-2 win over the Boston Bruins on Wednesday. Evan Fournier Jersey . Left back Layvin Kurzawa put Monaco ahead in the 36th minute with a low shot after being set up by midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia, sweeping the ball in after running onto Kondogbias cross from the left.Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Golden State Warriors clamped down defensively in the fourth quarter to extend their franchise-record winning streak. Stephen Curry had 20 points, seven rebounds and seven assists, Klay Thompson added 21 points and the Warriors defeated the Houston Rockets 105-93 on Wednesday night, upping their streak to 14 games. Golden State outscored Houston 32-17 in the fourth, holding the Rockets to just 31.6 percent (6-of-19) from the floor in the period. The last six or seven minutes we had tremendous effort from everyone on the floor, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. Harrison Barnes posted 20 points and seven boards for the Warriors, who improved to an NBA-best 19-2 on the season. He was fantastic tonight, Kerr said. Made some big shots for us. Hes so quick and strong. The defensive versatility gives us a lot of flexibility. Andrew Bogut missed the game due to knee tendinitis. James Harden supplied 34 points, eight rebounds, four helpers and four steals for Houston, which had won seven of its last eight games coming in. Dwight Howard missed his 10th straight game due to a knee strain. Harden tied the game at 89-89 with 4:45 left after knocking down a step-back 3-pointer, but the Warriors cclosed the game on a 16-4 run, including 11 straight points following the Harden triple. Arron Afflalo Jersey. Draymond Green jumpstarted the surge with an emphatic dunk off a Curry feed and Green returned the favor a bit later when his steal and dish led to a Curry left-handed reverse for a 98-89 advantage with 2:59 to go. Currys pull-up left wing trey with 55 ticks remaining capped the scoring. Earlier, Houston hit 10 of its first 13 shots as it built a 24-16 lead before settling for a 30-23 spread following a quarter of play. The margin reached 11 early in the second following Donatas Motiejunas turnaround hook shot, but Golden State ripped off the next nine points. Thompsons pull-up jumper pulled the Warriors within 36-34. Harden sunk a pair of foul shots in the final second of the half and tied the game at 46-46 heading into the break. His last second tip-in to conclude the third staked Houston to a 76-73 edge going into the fourth.
