ST. MORITZ, Switzerland - Exceeding expectations in her comeback season, Lindsey Vonn now heads to her hometown world championships injury-free and winning races in style.That is a rare luxury, the Alpine ski star reflected Sunday, after running her womens World Cup wins record mark to 64 with an impressive super-G victory.Vonns mastery of a tricky course setting meant only one racer, Olympic super-G champion Anna Fenninger of Austria, finished within a second of her winning time.This is definitely the healthiest Ive been going into a big event, for sure, said the 30-year-old American, due to arrive home Monday in Vail, Colorado, one week ahead of the two-yearly worlds.Vonns pursuit of Olympic and world titles has often been hampered by injury and crashes in the days before racing.Her three career gold medals are outnumbered by four giant crystal globe trophies won for scoring the most all-around points in the grueling World Cup season.To find Vonn in such good shape is remarkable after she twice blew out her right knee in 2013. First, in her opening super-G race at the previous worlds, held in Schladming, Austria, and a second which kept her from the Sochi Olympics.Its nice to finally feel healthy again, said Vonn, who has won five World Cup speed races this season. After every race I have muscle pain and my knees hurt a little bit, but its nothing new.Still, she just won three times in a stellar eight-day span to prepare for a world championships staged on her local Beaver Creek course.Vonn recalled feeling this good for a gold-medal challenge only before the 2009 worlds, when she took downhill and super-G titles at Val dIsere, France.This being Lindsey Vonn, she lacerated her right thumb on a broken champagne bottle at a sponsors party to celebrate that downhill win and almost jeopardized the rest of her dominating season.On Sunday, a super-G win at St. Moritz repeated her feat of 2010 when it had seemed the perfect send-off in Europe for the Vancouver Olympics where she was expected to shine.Vonn did indeed win her Olympic downhill title five years ago, though only after injuring her right shin in training which added drama and uncertainty.Dont jinx me, Vonn said Sunday when asked about her star-crossed luck. So, hopefully in the next training days nothing happens.Valerie Grenier of Mont-Tremblant, Que., was 13th in her second career World Cup super-G race. Marie-Michele Gagnon of Lac-Etchemin, Que., was 17th.Everything about Vonns latest victory suggests she learned enough to stay safe before her first medal race, the super-G on Feb. 3.Vonn found a fast racing line through a challenging set of gates. A tight turn into the finish tricked several rivals, including double Sochi gold medallist Tina Maze of Slovenia.On crossing the finish line, Vonn raised both arms in the air and bowed to the cheering Swiss crowd who appreciated her impressive run.Fenninger acknowledged being outsmarted higher up the course.It was really good skiing on the last two sections, the 24-year-old overall World Cup champion said. I think that is the way you can beat Lindsey but it has to be for the whole run.Vonn now leads the season-long super-G standings from Fenninger.Sometimes its nice to be a veteran on the tour, said Vonn, who debuted in a World Cup slalom aged 16 in November 2000. I knew a few gates that would cause trouble.Such veteran savvy should help her manage the demands of being a home-team favourite for the two-week championships — the first on American snow since the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics.I know the limit and I know how to handle my schedule, said Vonn, who will stay in relative calm at the team hotel. My whole family will be at my house so I want to separate myself.Her father, Alan Kildow, was again course-side to watch. He also attended last Monday at Cortina dAmpezzo, Italy, when another super-G win set a wins record for Vonn which arrived so soon after such serious injuries.She works so hard physically on the rehabilitation that I knew she would be in good shape, Kildow said. But to come that far back, that quickly, is, I wont say its surprising, but ... you know.

Cheap Adidas NMD 2018 . Solomon Elimimian did not make the trip with the team after suffering what appeared to be a right leg injury in the teams regular season finale against the Calgary Stampeders. Yellow Adidas NMD 2018 Shoes . -- Fresh off their surprising run in the playoffs, the Portland Trail Blazers have signed head coach Terry Stotts to a multi-year contract extension. ATLANTA -- Kyle Korver said Atlanta coach Mike Budenholzer "laid into us" at halftime. The response from Korver and the Hawks, especially in the third quarter, earned postgame praise from the first-year coach. Korver scored 24 points, including a trio of 3-pointers in a third-quarter stretch that gave Atlanta the lead, and the Hawks overcame Kevin Loves 43 points to beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 120-113 on Saturday night. Korver hit each of his four shots and had 12 points in the third, when the Hawks outscored the Timberwolves 38-21. "I thought the guys responded," Korver said. "Obviously, it was a great third quarter for us. Hopefully he doesnt have to talk to us like that all the time. It worked tonight." Budenholzer said defence sparked Atlantas comeback from an 11-point deficit in the second period. "I think the third quarter tonight was something we can reference going forward on how we want to play, particularly defensively, to hold them to 21 points in a quarter with the way they can score," Budenholzer said. Budenholzer said guard DeMarre Carroll, who had 19 points, "set a defensive tone for us and I think everybody else follows that." Paul Millsap, guarded by Love much of the night in a matchup of All-Stars, had 20 points and 13 rebounds before fouling out late in the game. Even with the dominant third quarter, the Hawks had to hold on late. A jam by Minnesotas Corey Brewer with 2:55 remaining cut Atlantas lead to 107-104. Jeff Teague, who had 19 points, drove for a layup and Carrolls free throws pushed the lead to seven points. Loves 3-pointer again trimmed the margin to three before Atlantas Gustavo Ayon banked in an unlikely scoop shot to thwart the comeback attempt. Love, who grabbed 19 rebounds while playing with a sore left ankle, had 21 points in the final period and finished two points shy of his season high. "I didnt even know I had (43) to be honest," Love said. "I think (Kevin Martin) told me after the game. I was just trying to get us back in the game by aany means.dddddddddddd My teammates set me up with a lot of good shots but, yeah, a loss right now, its just tough." Love said the Timberwolves missed centre Nikola Pekovic, who sat out his third straight game with bursitis in his right ankle. Pekovic could have been especially important against the undersized Hawks. "To not have Peck in a game like this, really the last (three) games, its really tough, just because he takes up so much space," Love said. "Youre having to make up for 20 points and 10 rebounds." Martin had 17 points for the Timberwolves (23-24), who fell under .500 with their second straight loss. Korver, guarded closely by Brewer much of the game, missed his only 3-point attempt in the first half. Korver finally broke free to sink his first 3 with 7:32 remaining in the third quarter for a 60-all tie, extending his NBA record to 115 consecutive games with a 3. Korver added another 3-pointer about a minute later and sank his third with 4:20 remaining in the quarter, giving Atlanta a 73-62 lead. "Once he got one, its tough," Brewer said. "I tried to chase him and make it tough on him all night. ... But hes a great shooter. He has the record for a reason." Minnesota opened the final period with quick 3s by J.J. Barea and Alexey Shved to trim Atlantas lead to 86-81. Barea was ejected with 6:43 remaining. He was called for a technical foul on Minnesotas end of the court and argued his case at the other end, stepping inside the 3-point arc before finally being tossed as Korver was setting up for a free throw. NOTES: Millsap fouled out with 4:19 remaining. ... Ricky Rubio had 11 assists for Minnesota. ... The Hawks signed F Cartier Martin to a 10-day contract and he was active to start his second stint with the team. He appeared in 25 games with the Hawks before he was waived on Jan. 7 and then signed two 10-day contracts with the Bulls. ... The Hawks played their first home game since Wednesday nights game against Detroit was postponed until April 8 due to the winter storm that paralyzed the city.
