Kennard on life after commiting to Duke

FRANKLIN -- Junior Luke Kennard has committed to Duke but that doesn't mean that things are starting to settle down for the Franklin standout. In fact, quite the opposite is true.
   Head coach Brian Bales says that Kennard is now working harder than he's ever seen before and the junior is working on flexibility as well as many other areas that you might not first think of to improve your on court game.
   Kennard is also getting autograph requests from all over the country but he's also been very generous with his time.Kennard on life after commiting to Duke

CAVALIERS-GRIZZLIES

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Marc Gasol scored 16 points and grabbed nine rebounds, Kosta Koufos tallied eight of his 13 points in the fourth quarter, and the Memphis Grizzlies defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 96-92 Wednesday night.

Quincy Pondexter added 15 points for Memphis and Zach Randolph had 11 points. Mike Conley, Nick Calathes and Jon Leuer each finished with 10 points for the Grizzlies.

The Cavaliers, who played without LeBron James, were led by 16 points from Kyrie Irving, while starting backcourt mate Dion Waiters added 15 points. Kevin Love finished with 12, while Joe Harris added 10 off the Cleveland bench.

The loss was only the second of the preseason for Cleveland, which finished its exhibition season with a 5-2 record.

BACK TO THE BUNGLES

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Receiver A.J. Green didn't suit up for practice again on Wednesday, leaving the Bengals without their best receiver heading into a pivotal game in a season that could be quickly slipping away.

A 3-0 start stamped them as an up-and-coming team. They've come apart in the last two games, taking a pair of losses and a tie while slipping behind Baltimore (5-2) in the AFC North. The Ravens visit on Sunday.

Cincinnati (3-2-1) has been hit hard by injuries, but that's not the whole story. A defense that returned virtually intact has been shredded for three games in a row, giving up 500 yards in two of them.

Another loss on Sunday would give the Ravens control of the division.

COLTS-WALDEN FINE

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Colts linebacker Erik Walden has been fined $27,562 after being ejected for making contact with an official during Sunday's victory over Cincinnati.

Walden says he didn't mean to bump umpire Bruce Stritesky late in the first half. Instead, Walden says he was trying to move around Stritesky so he could hear and see which Bengals player was talking to him.

Walden acknowledged he was surprised when the flag came out. He also showed reporters the letter he received from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Indianapolis (5-2), which led 10-0 at the time, beat Cincinnati 27-0 for its fifth consecutive victory.

BROWNS-HOYER

BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer says he's never felt worse after a loss in his career and understands that criticism "comes with the territory."

Hoyer played poorly in Sunday's 24-6 loss at Jacksonville, completing just 16 of 41 passes. His shaky performance sparked buzz among some fans and analysts that popular rookie backup Johnny Manziel should take over, but Browns coach Mike Pettine said the team is "firmly" behind Hoyer.

Hoyer appreciates the support and trusts Pettine. Hoyer says he was difficult to be around the past few days and joked even his wife didn't want to be near him.

Hoyer's teammates are confident he'll rebound this week against winless Oakland. Wide receiver Miles Austin said it was unfair for Hoyer to be the main target for criticism, saying, "to put a loss on any one individual is absolutely crazy."
