NEW ORLEANS - Saints linebacker Curtis Lofton drew a personal foul for shoving Carolina quarterback Cam Newton and didnt regret it. Solomon Hill Jersey .New Orleans defensive captain may have succeeded in standing up to behaviour he viewed as disrespectful. As for stopping Newton and the Panthers from piling up yards and points, there didnt seem to be much Lofton or any of his teammates could do.Newton passed for three touchdowns, appeared to incite a scuffle when he dived over the pile for another score, and Carolina ended a six-game skid with a 41-10 rout of the Saints on Sunday.We were embarrassed, Lofton said. We apologize to our fans and coaches.It was bad, bad football today, he added.Jonathan Stewart added a 69-yard touchdown run as the Panthers (4-8-1) pulled closer to NFC South leader Atlanta (5-7), which plays at Green Bay on Monday night.Newtons jawing and Superman celebration after his 2-yard rushing touchdown in the first quarter drew Loftons shove, igniting a scrum that burst through a closed gate behind the goal post and into a tunnel.Newton chalked up the extracurricular roughness to nothing more than a lot of testosterone on that field at one time.Panthers tight end Brandon Williams was ejected for punching defensive end Cam Jordan. Although Lofton was flagged, he was allowed to stay in the game and said hed respond to Newtons actions the same way 100 times out of 100.It was taunting, Lofton said. I saw it as straight disrespect and I did what I thought I had to do.Newtons scoring passes went for 9 yards to Kelvin Benjamin, 16 yards to tight end Greg Olsen and 26 yards to running back Fozzy Whitaker.New Orleans (5-8) lost its fourth straight home game and dropped a half-game behind Atlanta.Saints coach Sean Payton called the loss embarrassing, and emphasized that hell be eager to review the coaches film of the game.Weve got to look closely at everything — preparation, who were asking to do it, Payton said. Were not that good. Thats painfully obvious.The Saints turned the ball over on two of their first three offensive plays. Mark Ingrams fumble on the New Orleans 25 — forced by Josh Norman and recovered by Colin Cole — led to a field goal. Bene Benwikeres interception of Drew Brees led to Newtons rushing TD.The Panthers, who entered with a league-low 30 first-quarter points all season, scored 17 points inside the first nine minutes.Brees was 29 of 49 for 235 yards and one late TD to tight end Ben Watson. Afterward, Brees said the Saints havent responded well to adversity this season.We need to be more professional, Brees said. Certainly, a loss like that is embarrassing. Thats not what were about.Newton was 21 of 33 for 226 yards, was not sacked and was not intercepted. Newton also rushed for 83 yards, but downplayed the part he played in those gains, saying the Saints left him wide open rushing lanes.I feel as if anybody could have run it, Newton said. There were no moves I made. I wasnt touched until I got in the secondary.Stewart finished with 155 yards rushing on 20 carries as the Panthers piled up 271 yards on the ground.The Panthers points total was their highest of the season, surpassing the 37 they scored in an overtime tie at Cincinnati.Carolinas 497 total yards also were easily a season high, albeit against a Saints defence that entered the game ranked second-to-last in the NFL.Carolina scored on its opening possession for only the second time all season, driving 80 yards on seven plays, capped by Benjamins touchdown.Olsens TD gave the Panthers a 24-3 lead that stood at halftime. Boos rained down on the Saints as they trotted to the locker room, and again when they began the second half by punting after three plays.When Whittaker turned a screen pass into a touchdown to make it 38-3 with a little more than five minutes left in the third quarter, much of the Superdome emptied out.NOTES: Saints LT Terron Armstead left with a neck injury in the first half and OLB Junior Galette limped off the field favouring his right leg in the second quarter. ... Saints C Jonathan Goodwin was helped off the field with an apparent leg injury late in the fourth quarter.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Anthony Davis Jersey . "It was a little weird looking over and seeing all the green uniforms," he said of his first game against the Boston Celtics. Omer Asik Jersey . After falling 5-0 on home ice in a game that could have tied them for second in the wild card standings, Washington head coach Adam Oates had some strong words for Capitals superstar Alex Ovechkin. http://www.shoppelicansonline.com/ . The result was a game-winning, power-play goal. Chiasson snapped a third-period tie and lifted the Dallas Stars to a 3-2 victory on Monday night. SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- With Kevin Durant on the bench to start the fourth quarter, his Oklahoma City Thunder teammates put together a run that helped end one of the most impressive scoring streaks in NBA history. And Durant says nobody is happier its over than him. Caron Butler made all six of his 3-point attempts to finish with 23 points, and the Thunder began the fourth quarter on a 16-0 spurt to pull away for a 107-92 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday night. Durant finished with 23 points but was never needed in the final quarter, stopping his streak of scoring at least 25 points in 41 consecutive games. Only Oscar Robertson (46 straight games in 1963-64) and Wilt Chamberlain (all 80 regular-season games in the 1961-62 season) have longer such streaks. "I was getting so many texts after every game. Im glad thats over with and we can just focus on the team," said Durant, who shot 8 for 13 in 31 minutes. "If we played well and I had 25 points, that took away from how well the team was playing, so I didnt like that. If we lost, it was all about me scoring 25 points and I didnt like that either. Im glad we can just talk about the team now." Coming off losses at Memphis and Phoenix, Oklahoma City certainly has plenty of bigger things to play for during the seasons final two weeks. Serge Ibaka added 19 points and four rebounds for the Thunder, who rested Russell Westbrook ahead of Wednesday nights game at the Los Angeles Clippers. Oklahoma City (56-21) is 1 1/2 games ahead of the Clippers (55-23) for the Western Conferences No. 2 playoff seed. Even still, Durant said he was aware of how many points he had but never thought of asking coach Scott Brooks to go back in the game. Brooks insisted it never crossed his mind, either, saying the most impressive thing about Durants streak is that he didnt even realize it ended because Durant has been the "trademark for consistency." "Hes about team," Brooks said. "If he wasnt, he would have played golf and tried to chase (Jack) Nicklaus record of 18 majors." DeMarcus Cousins had 24 points and 14 rebounds, and Travis Outlaw scored 24 points in Sacramentos third straight loss. Even with three regulars out with injuries, the Kings made the Thunder work through the first three quarters. Oklahoma City buuilt double-digits leads throughout the game only to watch Sacramento surge back each time. DeMarcus Cousins Jersey. . But with Durant on the bench to open the fourth, the Thunder finally created a lead big enough to stick. The Thunder held Sacramento scoreless for nearly 6 minutes to go ahead 101-77. "We had some guys that played with no energy," frustrated Kings coach Michael Malone said. "It looked they didnt even want to be out there, to be honest." With the matchup in Los Angeles looming large, Brooks decided to rest Westbrook -- as he has done during one game of back-to-back sets since Westbrook returned Feb. 20 following right knee surgery. The Thunder got some relief with Thabo Sefolosha playing for the first time since injuring his left calf against Memphis on Feb. 28. He finished with two points and three rebounds in 16 minutes. Sacramento, already among the conferences worst teams, played even more short-handed. Kings big man Reggie Evans and forward Rudy Gay sat out with back injuries, and point guard Isaiah Thomas missed his eighth straight game with a bruised right quadriceps. Oklahoma City looked every bit like the better and deeper team at the start. The Thunder surged ahead 9-0 in the first two minutes before Cousins brought the Kings back with his perimeter shot, slicing Oklahoma Citys lead to 30-27 at the end of the first quarter. The Thunder began to pull away again with a 17-4 run in the second quarter propelled by Butler, who made all four of his 3-point attempts in the first half. Oklahoma City led 61-49 at intermission and didnt have a turnover until the second half. Durant credited the communication and ball movement for pulling away late, and he said he hopes the focus can shift from his scoring streak to his teams improved play. "When I sit back after the seasons over thats when I reflect on everything that Ive done, that the teams done, and Im sure Ill appreciate (the streak) then," Durant said. "But now, Im just focusing on game to game and how we can get better as a group and how I can help the team get better." NOTES: The Thunder swept the four-game season series against the Kings. ... Oklahoma City has won 10 straight and 16 of 17 over Sacramento. ... A fan made a shot from half court during a timeout in the first half to win a car.
