ORLANDO, Fla. -- Orlando Magic coach Stan Van Gundy says he thinks Dwight Howard has shown restraint on the court this season despite picking up the leagues first suspension for excessive technical fouls. Van Gundy quoted an Elias Sports Bureau statistic Monday that notes Howard has been fouled 593 times this season without any of those calls being labeled flagrant. Asked if the Magic had a case to the league office about whether they feel Howard has been excessively fouled, Van Gundy said he thinks outside input doesnt carry much weight at the league office. "This is the system David Stern and his minions like it," Van Gundy said. "So thats the system you have...I certainly cant have an opinion because David Stern, like a lot or leaders weve seen in this world lately, dont really tolerate other peoples opinion or free speech or anything. So Im not really allowed to have an opinion. So its up to him. "He decides and he likes the system he has." Howard is serving a one-game suspension Monday night against the Trail Blazers after picking up his 16th technical of the season against Chicago on Friday. For every two technicals he receives the remainder of the season he also must sit out a game. "I think he has settled down," Van Gundy said. "Hes gotten two (technicals) in the last month (and) he hasnt gotten any for arguing. His problems were early in the year when he got a lot of arguing calls. Lately what hes gotten is two for retaliating for hits hes taken after the whistle and I think to be quite honest hes already had great restraint on those plays. "... You guys can estimate how many of those were hard hits and how many of those were above the shoulders ... I would say his control is amazing." Howard said Sunday after the Magics practice that he must try not to let officiating affect how he plays going forward. "Its very tough, but Ive just got to do it," Howard told reporters. "I think its like they want to make an example out of me, but Ill just stay positive and continue to do all the things that I do to bring fun to the game. Thats all I can do. Im not a bad guy. Im not a hothead because I get techs, and I think thats the message that people want to put across." The Magic will start forward Ryan Anderson in place of Howard Monday. It will be Andersons 12th start this season. Wholesale Jerseys.

Cheap Jerseys China.C. -- Rams coach Jeff Fisher says quarterback Sam Bradford will have an MRI on his left knee Sunday night after the team lands in St.MIAMI -- Bryce Harpers first two-homer game ended with his latest tantrum. The quick-tempered rookie was ejected for spiking his helmet in the ninth inning and drew a scolding from manager Davey Johnson, even though he helped the first-place Washington Nationals snap a five-game losing streak by beating the Miami Marlins 8-4 Wednesday night. With a chance for a third homer, Harper instead grounded into a double play in the ninth. After he crossed the bag he angrily spiked his helmet and it nearly hit first base umpire C.B. Bucknor, who ejected him. "Bryce couldnt control his emotions again," Johnson said. "I had a little chat with him. Hell get over it. Hes just a hundred-percenter. He expects great things out of himself, breaks bats, throws his helmet. Hes just got to stop it. We cant afford to be losing him in a ballgame. Hell learn. Hes young." Harpers most notorious outburst came in May, when he slammed his bat against the side of a tunnel in frustration, and the barrel smacked off the wall and hit his temple just above the left eye, causing a gash that needed 10 stitches. He was unhurt but sheepish after the latest incident. "I shouldnt have done it, but I dont like hitting into double plays," said Harper, 19. "I just need to stop getting mad and live with it. I just need to grow up in that mentality a little bit and try not to bash stuff in. Ive always done it my whole life. Things need to change." His swing the Nationals like just fine. Harper hit a two-run homer in the fourth inning and added a solo shot in the fifth, giving the rookie 14 this season. "I felt good up there," Harper said. "I saw some pitches I could drive and did some damage." Before the game, Johnson called a brief team meeting, which he described as upbeat. The pep talk stirred the Nationals bats, and they had 14 hits. Michael Morse had an RBI single and drove in another run with his first triple since 2010 for the Nationals. Kurt Suzuki hit his first homer with Washington in the ninth off Heath Bell. "That ballclub is in first place for a reason," Marlins maanager Ozzie Guillen said.dddddddddddd "They can hit." But lately the Nationals bats had been quiet. They totalled only six runs during the losing streak, which matched their longest of the season and reduced their NL East lead over second-place Atlanta from seven games to four. "Were still the team in first place," Harper said. "Everybody is getting ahead of everything and saying were struggling. We went through a skid. That happens. Everybody is trying to catch us; its harder for them." Ross Detwiler (8-6) allowed three runs in 5 2-3 innings. Drew Storen came on with runners at second and third in the eighth and retired three consecutive batters to protect a 6-4 lead. "Storen won the game for us," Johnson said. Miami rookie Jacob Turner (0-2), auditioning for a job next year, allowed five runs in five innings. The start was his second with the Marlins after he was acquired from Detroit in a July trade and spent a brief time in their minor league system. Turner retired the first nine batters, striking out four, but the Nationals scored four runs in the fourth. Jayson Werth led off with a single and Harper hit his 13th homer. Adam LaRoche singled, Morse tripled and Ian Desmond hit an RBI single. In the fifth inning, Harper homered into the seventh row of the upper deck in right field. The estimated distance was 425 feet. "I just made mistakes, and obviously they capitalized on them," Turner said. "I threw a couple of pitches over really good and got really good results, and also threw a couple of pitches that were really bad and were bad results. I just have to be more consistent." NOTES: The Marlins gave out 15,000 Giancarlo Stanton bobbleheads. "I will take a couple," Guillen said. "Ive had some requests, especially from women." ... Regarding his decision to call a meeting, Johnson said: "I saw some speeches watching the Republican convention. I said, Maybe I ought to give a speech." ... The Marlins Carlos Lee went hitless and is batting only .184 against left-handers this year. ' ' '
