INDIANAPOLIS -- Robert Mathis never got to see Deacon Jones take down opposing quarterbacks in person. He learned to appreciate Jones creativity over time. The Colts Pro Bowl linebacker and newly crowned sacks champion was honoured Thursday as the inaugural winner of the NFLs Deacon Jones Award, which goes to the leagues sacks leader. Mathis will be recognized at the NFL award banquet Feb. 1. "Deacon Jones is the creator of the sack, so to be able to win the first award in his honour is an honour," Mathis told reporters in Indianapolis. "Im very proud that I was able to win it and I thank my teammates, mainly the d-line, who were very instrumental in helping me get to the quarterback." League officials named the award after Jones died June 3 at age 74. Jones was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1980. Mathis has been one of the leagues top sack artists since joining the Colts as a fifth-round draft pick in 2003. For nearly a decade, Mathis and Dwight Freeney were among the NFLs most feared pass-rushing tandems. But when Freeney left in free agency during the off-season, the critics contended Mathis would struggle without his longtime teammate and close friend. Instead, Mathis used it as motivation. When asked Thursday why he has played so well over the years, Mathis responded: "The fact that I do have a chip on my shoulder every time I play. When people say you cant do something, you want to show them that you can." So the 32-year-old who is in his second season as a rush linebacker delivered the best season of his career. He broke Freneeys franchise record for sacks in a season (16) with 19 1/2 and became the Colts career sacks leader (111), surpassing Freeneys previous mark (107 1/2). Mathis finished the regular season with 65 tackles, matched his career high with eight forced fumbles -- two of which led to safeties -- and helped lead the Colts to their first AFC South title without Peyton Manning. Indy (11-5) will host Kansas City (11-5) on Saturday afternoon in a wild-card game. Mathis, who was the sacks leader most of the season, even came up with two sacks in the regular-season finale to move past St. Louis Robert Quinn and join Freeney as the only Colts players to win a sacks title. Freeney took that honour in 2004. Paul Molitor Jersey .com) - The Detroit Pistons and Boston Celtics both entered Wednesday nights game riding lengthy losing streaks.

Wendy Holdener and Reto Schmidiger won their final heats against Julia Mancuso and Tim Jitloff, respectively.PHOENIX -- The Arizona Diamondbacks All-Stars shined on Saturday. Miguel Montero hit a go-ahead, three-run double in the fifth and Paul Goldschmidt added a two-run homer, leading the Diamondbacks to a 9-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs. Goldschmidt went 3 for 3 with three runs batted in. He also scored three runs and walked twice, raising his batting average to .314. "When youre scoring multiple runs on at-bats, thats ideal," Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. Wade Miley (6-6) went seven innings, allowing three runs and seven hits, striking out seven with one walk. He is 3-0 in his last four starts. "Tried to make quality pitches and get ahead of guys," Miley said. The Diamondbacks tagged Cubs starter Travis Wood (7-9) for seven runs -- five earned -- on eight hits. He lost his third straight start. The Cubs have lost four in a row and 10 of 12. "I threw a pitch that kind of sat there and he made me pay for it," Wood said of Monteros double. "That is what he is able to do." The Cubs got a run to start the game on three straight singles with one out, the third hit coming from All-Star Starlin Castro to drive in Justin Ruggiano. If not for a leaping catch at the wall in dead centre field by the Diamondbacks Ender Inciarte, the Cubs might have added on more runs. Welington Castillos long fly ball looked like it would bounce off the wall for extra bases, but Inciarte tracked it down for the second out of the inning and Miley got out of the inning without further damage. "You go back and look at games, how theyre won and lost, thats one of those plays you look at," Gibson said. "Thats one of the things he can do and he did a heck of a job for us." Goldschmidt scored on Monteros single with help from an error on the play, hustling around third after Cubs centre fielder Arismendy Alcantara bobbled the ball. His throw beat Goldschmidt to home plate, but Goldschmidt avoided the lunging tag from Castillo and sscored to tie it at 1.dddddddddddd Alcantara, 22, was making just his second start in centre field after only seven big league games. "I was thinking of sliding straight in, but I could tell the way the catcher moved that if I slid straight, I was just going to slide right into his glove," Goldschmidt said. "Just tried to go around him and fortunately was able to do that." The Cubs plated a pair of fourth-inning runs. Castillo hit a line-drive home run into the seats in left field to lead off the inning, and Junior Lake legged out a triple into the left-field corner and scored on a sacrifice fly from Mike Olt. The Diamondbacks made it 7-3 in the sixth inning thanks to an RBI double from Goldschmidt and a dribbler up the third-base line from Mark Trumbo that went for an infield hit. Arizona improved to 10-3 in the last 13 games against Chicago. "We had a play here and there that made the game open up, but we just werent able to grind it out and put runs across," Cubs manager Rick Renteria said. Diamondbacks right fielder Cody Ross left the game with left calf tightness after singling to lead off the bottom of the second inning. He was replaced before the top of the third by Gerardo Parra. Gibson said it might have been a cramp for Ross and that he seems OK. NOTES: The Cubs played their 54th road game of the season, the most of any team in the majors. The New York Yankees came in tied with Chicago at 53 road games but were at home to face Cincinnati on Saturday. ...
