Sania Mirza and Rohan Bopanna subdued Britains Andy Murray and Heather Watson with remarkable ease to breeze into the mixed-doubles semifinals at the Rio Olympics. Eugenio Mena Jersey . The fourth-seeded Indian pair dominated the quarterfinal contest, winning 6-4 6-4 in just 67 minutes.One more victory will ensure India a silver medal and even a defeat in the semifinals - against USAs Venus Williams and Rajeev Ram - would give Sania and Bopanna a chance to fight for the bronze.Murray came into the contest after winning his singles quarterfinal that lasted more than two hours, and he was a pale shadow of himself.Murray, the world number two, winner of three Grand Slams and the singles defending Olympic champion, seemed to be conserving his energy for the bigger battle ahead. His heavy legs and stifled movement on the court made the task easier for the Indians.Watson, too, did not look like the player who won the Wimbledon mixed-doubles title this year, struggling with her serve and ground strokes in the opening set.Bopanna was solid with his booming serve while Sania played superbly from the back of the court. Bopanna began with a double fault and Sanias consecutive volley errors meant that the Indians were first to blink.However, the Indians immediately got the break back as Watosn dropped serve at love. A flurry of unforced errors from her set the Indians up nicely with three chances, and Bopanna found a backhand winner on the first break point. Sania saved a breakpoint in the next and held to make it 2-2.A nervous-looking Watson struggled with her serve and was again down 0-40, allowing India to seized the advantage. Murray failed to put across a strong forehand return from Sania, putting the Indians ahead 4-3. Sania came out serving solid in the next set as India led 5-3. Bopanna served out the first set without fuss, hitting two aces.Murray and Watson played better as a team in the second set, but the Indians were up for the task and broke Murray in the fifth for a 3-2 lead. That lead stayed with the Indians and Bopanna sealed the issue on the third match point with an overhead smash.In 2012, Murray had won silver in the mixed-doubles, alongside Laura Robson. India have won only one tennis medal in their entire Olympic history, through Leander Paes, who won a singles bronze at 1996 Atlanta Games. Matias Fernandez Chile Jersey . Durant finished with 24 points and 13 rebounds, Jackson matched his career high with 23 points on 10-of-14 shooting and Lamb scored 12 points on 5-of-7 shooting, lifting the Thunder to a 94-88 win over San Antonio and snapping the Spurs 11-game winning streak. Arturo Vidal Jersey . Malkin got tangled up with Detroits Luke Glendening early in the third period and his left skate took the brunt of collision with the boards behind Pittsburghs net. . Louis. To which I would say two things: 1. Where there is smoke, there is or perhaps has been a little fire. Or, in other words, the two teams would appear to have at least spoken. And spoken is defined as one calling the other to inquire, no more, no less. MINNEAPOLIS -- Matthew Stafford says he would like to avoid being down late in the fourth quarter at all costs.The Detroit Lions quarterback sure looks comfortable in those situations this season. Maybe because he has had plenty of practice.Stafford threw a 28-yard touchdown pass to Golden Tate, who vaulted into the end zone in overtime to give the Lions a 22-16 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.After Matt Prater kicked a 58-yard field goal as time expired in the fourth quarter to force overtime, Tate finished the opening drive when he ran through arm tackles by Xavier Rhodes and Harrison Smith and leaped in for the winning score.Our guys have been able to do it. Not just do it once or twice, theyve been able to do it a number of times, Lions coach Jim Caldwell said of his teams ability to come back from fourth-quarter deficits in all five of their victories.I do think they have the level of comfort with it. Its a tough situation to be in, but they dont flinch and we havent had any crucial mistakes in that period of time.Stafford completed 23 of 36 passes for 219 yards, two touchdowns and an interception for the Lions (5-4), who have won four of their past five games. Tate had 11 catches for 79 yards.Sam Bradford completed 31 of 40 passes for 273 yards and a touchdown for the Vikings (5-3), who started the season 5-0 but have imploded since coming out of the bye. Stefon Diggs had a career-high 13 catches for 80 yards.For the first time in three weeks this team fought like I expected them to fight, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said. If we continue to do these kinds of things, well win football games.Tyrunn Walker blocked a field goal, Kerry Hyder had two sacks and the Lions stuffed the Vikings on fourth-and-1 at the Detroit 5-yard line in the fourth quarter to keep them in position to rally late.After enduring a tumultuous week , the Vikings took a 16-13 lead with 23 seconds to play on a 1-yard run by Rhett Ellison. But Stafford hit Andre Roberts for 27 yards to set up Praters game-tying kick.In overtime, Stafford hit Eric Ebron for 17 yards on third-and-3, Marvin Jones drew a pass interference call on Rhodes and Tate polished off the stunner with a hard-nosed ccatch-and-run down the sideline. Nicolas Castillo Chile Jersey. It was kind of planned, Tate said of his flip. He just kind of accelerated it a little bit.BIG ANSWERThe Vikings were in business in the second quarter when Chad Greenway intercepted a rushed throw from Stafford and returned it to the Lions 18-yard line. But the offense committed two penalties and Bradford was sacked on third down to turn a first-and-10 at the 18 to a fourth-and-32 from the Lions 40.The Vikings punted, and Stafford led the Lions on a marathon 17-play, 84-yard drive that took 9:45 off the clock. He hit Anquan Boldin for a 1-yard score with 5 seconds to play in the half, giving Detroit a 10-3 lead going into halftime.According to Fox Sports, it was the first time a team had to punt after being inside the opponents 20-yard line since St. Louis did against Washington in 2011.WALSH STRUGGLESVikings kicker Blair Walsh had steadied himself over the previous few weeks after shaky start to the season. But the struggles returned on Sunday. He missed his third extra point of the season -- most in the NFL -- when he hit the right upright in the third quarter, a miss that prevented the Vikings from tying the score at 10.Then his 46-yard try in the fourth quarter was blocked by Walker.You guys are going to ask me this question a million times: `Did it feel good? Walsh snapped. Did I make it? No. Do I have to? Yes. Do I want to? Yes. So, just, if youve got something else, please. Seriously.INJURY REPORTLions: CB Darius Slay (hamstring), LB DeAndre Levy (knee, quad) and OT Riley Reiff (illness) did not play. ... CB Nevin Lawson left the game in the fourth quarter with a calf injury.Vikings: CB Captain Munnerlyn hobbled out of the locker room on crutches with a brace on his right knee.
