(SportsNetwork.com) - The Philadelphia 76ers earned their first home victory of the season last time out and will try for two in a row Wednesday night when the Milwaukee Bucks head to the Wells Fargo Center. After dropping their first 14 as the host, the Sixers knocked off the short- handed Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday, 95-92. Sure the Cavs were without All-Stars LeBron James and Kyrie Irving, then traded key bench piece Dion Waiters after starting lineups were introduced, but a win is a win for Philly. It means a lot. Its our first home game win, said Michael Carter-Williams. Were really excited, we really put the pieces together at the end of the game. We came back in the fourth, and we did all of the things we needed to do at the end of the game. Trailing 86-76 with 6:07 to play, Philadelphia went on a 12-2 run to tie the game. The Cavs reclaimed a one-point lead when Clevelands Matthew Dellavedova missed two free throws with 20.6 seconds remaining. Sixers guard Tony Wroten made a driving layup at the other end to put the Sixers in front. Love was unable to tip-in Dellavedovas missed layup and Philadelphias Robert Covington made two free throws with 0.3 seconds to go. Wroten ended with 20 points and eight assists for the Sixers. Carter-Williams tallied 18 points, 13 assists and six rebounds in his return to the lineup. He missed the final game of their lengthy road trip against the Clippers with shoulder soreness. The Bucks have lost two of their last three, but have won four straight on the road. On Tuesday, Milwaukee fell at home to the Phoenix Suns, 102-96. Brandon Knight paced the Bucks with 26 points, and Giannis Antetokounmpo totaled 16 with 12 rebounds in Milwaukees fourth straight home loss. The Suns scored 12 of the first 16 points of the fourth quarter to take an 83-76 lead and stayed in front the rest of the way. Khris Middleton, whose buzzer-beating 3-pointer topped the Suns back on Dec. 15, hit from deep with under two minutes left to pull the Bucks within 94-92. Phoenix, however, answered with the next six points to cement the win. We were in the game. We had an opportunity against one of the hottest teams in the league and we just couldnt get the ball to bounce our way, Bucks head coach Jason Kidd said. After Wednesdays tilt, the Bucks play five of their next six in Milwaukee. The Bucks beat the Sixers by 12 in Milwaukee on Halloween. That gave the Bucks three straight and six of eight wins in the series, although the Sixers are 5-2 in their last seven at home versus Milwaukee.

Fake Nike NBA Jerseys . -- Shanshan Feng was alone in her opinion about the pin positions in the Kraft Nabisco Championship.MOSCOW -- Russias counter-terrorism agency says its studying a video posted by an Islamic militant group that asserted responsibility for suicide bombings that killed 34 people last month and is threatening to strike the Winter Olympics in Sochi. Security experts say the Russians are right in taking the threat seriously. The video was posted online Sunday by a militant group in Dagestan, a predominantly Muslim republic in Russias volatile North Caucasus. The Olympic host city of Sochi lies only 500 kilometres (300 miles) west of Dagestan. Two Russian-speaking men featured in the video are identified as members of Ansar al-Sunna, the name of a Jihadist group operating in Iraq. It was unclear whether the men in the video had received funding or training from that group or only adopted its name. There was no confirmation the two men were the suicide bombers who struck the southern Russian city of Volgograd last month as the video claims. Scores of people were also injured by the bombings of a train station and a bus. Russias National Anti-Terrorism Committee said Monday it was studying the video and would have no immediate comment. The video couldnt be viewed in Russia, where Internet providers cut access to it under a law that bans the "dissemination of extremist materials." It was released by the Vilayat Dagestan, one of the units that make up the so-called Caucasus Emirate, an umbrella group for the rebels seeking to establish an independent Islamic state in the North Caucasus. Doku Umarov, a Chechen warlord who leads the Emirate, had ordered a halt to attacks on civilian targets in 2012. But he rescinded that order in July, urging his followers to strike the Sochi Olympics, which he denounced as "satanic dances on the bones of our ancestors." The games run from Feb. 7-23. The Kremlin-backed leader of Chechnya claimed last week that Umarov was dead, but the claim couldnt be verified. The Vilayat Dagestan statement said the Volgograd attacks were carried out in part because of Umarovs order, but it didnt specifically say he had ordered them. Dagestan has become the centre of an Islamic insurgency that has engulfed Russias North Caucasus after twoo separatist wars in Chechnya.dddddddddddd Militants seeking to create an independent state governed by Islamic Shariah law in the Caucasus launch daily attacks on police and other authorities there. One of the two ethnic Chechen brothers accused of staging the Boston Marathon bombings spent six months in Dagestan in 2012. Andrei Soldatov, an independent Moscow-based security analyst, said the video threat need to be taken seriously. "They have capabilities to strike beyond the North Caucasus, which they demonstrated in Volgograd," he said. "Its extremely difficult to stop a lone wolf suicide bombing attack." Georgy Mirsky, a respected Russian expert on the Middle East, said the video reflected the increasingly close ties between Jihadists in the Caucasus and elsewhere. Russias war against Caucasus militants has made it an enemy on par with the United States and Israel for militant Islamic groups in the Middle East, he wrote on his blog. Russia has responded to the Islamic threat by introducing some of the most sweeping security measures ever seen at an international sports event. Some 100,000 police, army and other security forces have been deployed, according to analysts, and tight restrictions have been placed on access to the Sochi area. Anyone attending the Winter Olympics has to buy a ticket online from the organizers and obtain a spectator pass that requires providing passport details. Authorities have already barred access to all cars registered outside of Sochi and Russian police have gone house-to-house methodically screening all city residents. Soldatov argued, however, that Russias massive security presence at the Olympics could also have an adverse effect. "When you put so many troops on the ground, you might get some problems with the co-ordination of all these people," he said. Soldatov noted that the ominous threat of a "present" for the visitors to the Games contained in the video is loosely phrased and could herald an attack outside tightly guarded Olympic facilities. "They never tried to specify the place where they might strike, thats why everybody should be concerned," he said. ' ' '
