NEW YORK -- Bill Laimbeer wasnt surprised his star center reached another milestone so early in her career.Charles scored 23 points, including her 4000th, to help New York beat Phoenix 92-70 on Saturday night.We talk about inside that shes the best post player in the world, men or women. the Liberty coach said. Shes that consistent and that dominant. Theres more to her that were waiting to see.Charles, who also had 15 rebounds, became the sixth fastest player in WNBA history to reach that milestone and moved the Liberty closer to clinching at least the third seed in the playoffs. One more victory will assure New York of a bye in the first round and a home game in the second.New York (20-9) got off to a slow start missing its first seven shots. The Liberty led 13-12 with just over 4 minutes left in the first quarter before outscoring Phoenix 16-2 the rest of the period. Charles had nine of the teams points during that burst.Phoenix (13-16), which lost in Connecticut on Friday night, was down 26 points in the third quarter before rallying within 11 early in the fourth quarter. The Mercury could get no closer.They played better, bottom line, Phoenix Mercury star Diana Taurasi said. Not tired, no nothing. They were better than us today.New York led by 14 at the half and blew the game open early in the third as frustration was setting in for the Mercury. After Diana Taurasi drew contact on a play, but no foul was called, assistant coach Todd Troxel was ejected for arguing with the officials. That seemed to spark Phoenix, which trailed 68-42 at that point. The Mercury scored 13 of the next 16 to close within 71-55 after three.Phoenix got within 73-62 early in the final period, but Charles hit a basket and then a three-point play by Brittany Boyd sealed the win. Boyd finished with a season-high 19 points, starting in place of Tanisha Wright (knee). New York, which has won 20 games in consecutive seasons, also was without Shoni Schimmel (concussion) and Kiah Stokes (hip).Laimbeer said that he didnt expect Stokes to play the rest of the regular season, but was hopefully to have at Wright back at some point soon. He wasnt sure about Schimmels status since concussions are trickier to predict.Marta Xargay led the Mercury with 16 points and DeWanna Bonner added 15.Charles reached 4,000 points on a three-point play late in the second quarter. Shes the 29th player to achieve that mark and is the third youngest according to Elias Sports Bureau. The Liberty honored Charles, Diana Taurasi and Brittney Griner before the game for helping the U.S. win a gold medal at the Rio Olympics. New York also honored Penny Taylor, who is retiring at the end of the season.It was nice, Taylor said. I try not to think about it and just play the games we have left. Cheap Kerryon Johnson Jersey . General manager Jarmo Kekalainen told Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch on Friday that he wants to see Gaboriks contributions go beyond the scoresheet before considering a long-term deal for the soon-to-be unrestricted free agent. Cheap Frank Ragnow Jersey . The third-ranked Ivanovic, who won the event in 2008 and 10, served five aces and broke Wickmayer, also a former winner in 2009, five times. "The result looked easier than it really was," Ivanovic said. . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. Wholesale Lions Jerseys . -- Derrick Rose shook off poor shooting early to hit clutch shots late and Carlos Boozer had 20 points and 13 rebounds to lead the Chicago Bulls to a 104-95 preseason victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday night. Lions Jerseys Free Shipping . World champions Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov of Russia won the gold medal with 237.71 points, Moore-Towers and Moscovitch followed at 208.45 and Ksenia Stolbova and Fedor Klimov of Russia were third at 187.West Ham captain Mark Noble insists he will not give up on playing for England, despite being left out Roy Hodgsons latest squad. The England boss did not include midfielder Noble in his 23-man squad for the friendly double-header with Germany and the Netherlands, despite his consistent form for the Hammers.Noble, who was capped 20 times for Englands U21s, told Sky Sports News HQ he accepts he is unlikely to force his way into Hodgsons plans for this summers European Championship finals but will continue to battle for a future call. I dont give up, for sure. For the Euros, probably - yes, actually - but for England, I dont give up, said Noble. Noble has found the net three times in the Premier League this season Its not just about me, its about a lot of very, very good players - top players - who have got a tournament to go and win in the summer. Hodgsons team in flux England unrecognisable at Euro 2016? Speaking on Sky Sports Now, former West Ham defender Tony Gale said Noble would have been a good addition to the national set-up.What could he have brought to the England squad? Hes got a calmness about him, said Gale.Hes a great passer of the ball and hes added to the repertoire with a couple of spectacular goals. He takes all the penalties for West Ham, and he cares. That rubs off on all the other players.Noble is also eligible to play for the Republic of Ireland, by virtue of his Cork-born grandparents. He has refused to rule out playing for Ireland in the past, but former England defender Andy Hinchcliffe believes Noble still has his heart set on England.dddddddddddd Danny Drinkwater (L) was handed his first England call-up by Roy Hodgson There comes a point when youre not getting an England call, maybe you think you want to play international football - maybe he would have decided by now if he wanted to play for Ireland.He seems to still think theres a possibility he could play for England. Certainly in future tournaments - look at the squad they picked with Danny Drinkwater and Jordan Henderson there - why not Mark Noble?Instead, Noble will celebrate nearly 12 years in the West Ham first-team with his testimonial on Monday against a Hammers All-Stars XI and is looking forward to seeing some legends back at the Boleyn Ground.Paolo Di Canio, Rio Ferdinand and Scotty Parker are coming back, and some really good friends of mine. Ive also got my best mate from when were kids to play 20 minutes, so thats going to be great, added Noble. Paolo Di Canio will be among the West Ham legends returning for Nobles testimonial To be able to play a testimonial in a season like this, in our last season at the Boleyn Ground is pretty special.The testimonial is raising money for Richard House Childrens Hospital, Help for Heroes and the DT38 Foundation.
