Dolphins Knowshon Moreno working his way back to full strength

By John Evenson

Dolphins free agent signing Knowshon Moreno is finally back taking part in full contact football this week at practice, the Dolphins hoping he can improve their 26th ranked running game from last season. One thing he's already done is improve fellow running back Lamar Miller's performances.

Miller has outperformed Moreno in most of the offseason workouts so far, looking much more motivated than he did last season. Of course, part of Moreno's slow start was because of his nagging knee injury and the fact he came into camp a little heavy, but with knee surgery now behind him, he's ready to be the Knowshon Moreno Dolphins fans were hoping he's be.

NBA-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- A night after having his homecoming ruined with a 95-90 loss to the Knicks, LeBron James and his Cavaliers are in Chicago to meet the Bulls tonight. In the opinion of many this could be a preview of the Eastern Conference finals next spring as the Cavs and Bulls are being touted as the best teams in the East. Chicago won its opening game on Wednesday against the Knicks in New York, so this evening's contest is the Bulls' home opener.

Defending league champion San Antonio opens the road portion of its schedule tonight with a game in Phoenix. Each team won its first game of the season.

The two teams based in Los Angeles are squaring off tonight in Staples Center with the Lakers serving as hosts. The Clippers won their season opener last night while the Lakers are winless in two games.

Tonight's other games feature Memphis at Indiana, the Bucks at home to the 76ers and Portland at Sacramento.

NHL-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- There are four games on ice this evening.

In Columbus the Blue Jackets are playing host to the Maple Leafs while the Stanley Cup champion Kings are in Detroit, the Stars are home to the Ducks and Nashville is at Calgary.

In regard to the Kings-Red Wings game, Detroit has won six of the last eight regular-season games played between the teams. And for the Stars and Ducks, this is their first encounter since Game 6 of last spring's Western Conference final, which the Ducks won 5-4 in overtime.

NASCAR

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- This week's stop on the Sprint Cup circuit is in Fort Worth, Texas. The Texas 500 is Sunday and qualifying for the pole is taking place this evening. The Chase championship field will be cut from eight to four after the Phoenix event next week, with race winners earning spots in the Nov. 16 finale in Florida.

Joey Logano won the April race at the Fort Worth track.

PGA-CIMB

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) -- Billy Hurley III made six birdies on his front nine en route to a 5-under 67 that gave him a two-shot lead after the second round of the PGA's CIMB Classic. Hurley matched his score from Thursday for a 10-under total of 134, two strokes ahead of fellow American Kevin Streelman in the jointly sanctioned PGA Tour and Asian Tour event.

A group of seven players was one stroke further back at 7 under, including defending champion Ryan Moore.

CHAMPIONS TOUR-SCHWAB CUP

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Tom Pernice (pur-NEES') Jr. shot a 5-under 65 to take a one-stroke lead over Bernhard Langer and three others in the Champions Tour's Charles Schwab Cup Championship. Jay Haas, Kenny Perry and Joe Durant matched Langer at 66.

Langer won the Charles Schwab Cup points title last week in San Antonio, taking a lot of the drama out of the season-ending event. The 57-year-old German star has a tour-high five victories -- two of them majors -- and also has wrapped up the season money title with over $2.9 million.
