LONDON - Liverpools rapid downfall continued with a fourth successive loss on Sunday, with Crystal Palace adding to Brendan Rodgers woes with a 3-1 victory. Hirving Lozano Mexico Jersey .The pressure, though, eased on Mauricio Pochettino after his Tottenham team came from behind to beat Hull 2-1 in the Premier League.As Liverpool manager, Rodgers had pledged not to make the same mistakes as Tottenham when it attempted to rebuild after losing Gareth Bale in 2013. But, without Luis Suarez this season, the new-look Liverpool has failed to recapture the form that saw the team finish second in May.Liverpool is now 12th after 12 matches — closer to the relegation zone than the top four.Although Rickie Lambert finally scored his first goal for Liverpool, Dwight Gayle levelled from close range before Joe Ledley netted and Mile Jedinak scored directly from a free kick to secure Palaces first win since September.Youve seen a team low on confidence today, Rodgers said at Selhurst Park. Not quite together as a team. We need to find a solution very quickly because it was very disappointing.I put the team out there, the best team to win us the game. We made a good start. You could see our passing was a wee bit tentative and then we make mistakes. Mistakes you wouldnt expect to see at a team thats supposed to be challenging.It seems unlikely Liverpool will be challenging for anything of note this season. The teams return to the Champions League after five years could end in the group stage unless its fortunes turn around on Wednesday against Ludogorets.Overall, that intensity and togetherness in our game isnt there, Rodgers said. When you dont get the results, that affects you. That leads to (damaged) confidence. The loss leaves Liverpool 18 points behind leader Chelsea and just two in front of Palace, and Rodgers knows his own future could soon come under scrutiny.Im not arrogant enough to think that I will be in a job through anything, he said.Pochettino has also been feeling the heat in his debut season at Tottenham, which had lost three of its last four league games before travelling to Hull.When former Tottenham player Jake Livermore put Hull ahead with an early 25-meter drive, it looked like being another miserable day for Pochettino.But Tottenham had a man advantage from the 50th minute when Gaston Ramirez was sent off for needlessly wrestling Jan Vertonghen to the floor.And striker Harry Kane then levelled with his 10th goal of the season in the 61st, meeting the rebound after Christian Eriksens free kick came off the post. And the Denmark midfielder grabbed the winner in stoppage time from the edge of the penalty area after being setup by Aaron Lennon.Hull is now just a point from the relegation zone, while Tottenham is up to 10th, only two points from fourth place. Rodolfo Pizarro Mexico Jersey . Dirk Nowitzki scored 25 points, Shawn Marion had 22 and the Mavericks beat undermanned Philadelphia 124-112 Friday night, handing the 76ers their 10th straight loss. Raul Jimenez Mexico Jersey . Betancourt was 2-5 with a 4.08 ERA and 16 saves for the Rockies last season before tearing a ligament in his pitching elbow. He considered undergoing platelet-rich plasma therapy to fix his arm, but announced in August his decision to have Tommy John surgery.SALT LAKE CITY -- Down three starters and behind by 20 points in the fourth quarter, the Sacramento Kings tried to foul their way back into the game. It almost worked. Derrick Favours had 17 points and 12 rebounds, Marvin Williams added 16 points and 11 rebounds, and the Jazz held off the depleted Kings 106-99 on Monday night. "If you build a lead like that then its easier when you have some lapses down the stretch. You have a little room for error," Utah forward Gordon Hayward said. Enes Kanter added 16 points and Jeremy Evans tied a career high with 14 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as the Jazz took advantage of injuries that have left Sacramento without frontcourt starters DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay for the past three games. "We had a size advantage so we wanted to mix up plays with the pick-and-rolls. I thought the two guys, Derrick and Enes, did a good job of getting in low position and made some good passes when they didnt have a chance to make a play for themselves," Utah coach Tyrone Corbin said. In addition to Cousins and Gay being out, Kings point guard Isaiah Thomas left in the third quarter with an illness. "Some of our guys were like, Oh boy, what are we going to do now? Now we have Isaiah, Rudy and DeMarcus all out. It was shellshock," Sacramento coach Mike Malone said. The Kings resorted to Plan B -- foul as much as possible -- and that shocked the Jazz. "Im going to do everything I can to extend the game and give us a chance to win. They were having their way with us, but we always try to identify certain guys who may be poor free throw shooters," Malone said. After the Jazz sent their starters to the bench with the game seemingly in hand, the Kings mounted an unlikely comeback that fell just short. Sacramento trimmed a 20-point lead to five in the final minute but came up empty on three of its final four possessions. "Whew, that was closer than it needed to be," Evans said. Jason Thompson scored a season-high 19 points and grabbed 11 rebounds for the Kings, who lost their fourth consecutive game. Derrick Williams had 17 points and 15 boards. The Jazz set an NBA season high with 53 free throw attempts. Utah went 12 for 25 at the line in the fourth quarter, allowing the Kings to make things intereesting. Custom Mexico Soccer Jerseys. Sacramento, whistled for 36 fouls, began hacking Utahs surprised reserves midway through the fourth quarter. "I wasnt expecting that at all. I feel a little disrespected. I missed some and that messed me up mentally," said Evans, who came into the game shooting 73 per cent from the line. The Jazz took control in the third with a 17-7 run that was capped by seven straight points from Marvin Williams. His free throws gave Utah an 81-67 lead with 1:36 left in the period. The Jazz stretched the lead to 20 as both teams played backups in the fourth quarter. The Kings started intentionally fouling big men Rudy Gobert and Evans, who were a combined 7 of 16 from the line. The scheme worked, and Ben McLemores three-point play brought the Kings to 104-99 with 31 seconds to play. John Lucas III made one of two free throws and Diante Garrett split a pair of foul shots to finally put the Kings away. "We really competed in the fourth quarter. Thats all you can do, especially when you have three starters out," Derrick Williams said. Cousins missed his third straight game with a sprained left ankle and Gay warmed up his strained left Achilles but felt he couldnt go and was scratched from the lineup just before the opening tip. Utah shot 40 per cent from the field but still moved ahead of the Kings in the standings. "Its a good feeling for us to move out of last place in the West. Its a step forward for us as a team," Hayward said. Thomas averaged 27.6 points over the previous five games but mustered only 10 on 4-of-13 shooting. He vomited at halftime and played just 8 minutes in the second half because of his stomach ailment. His streak of consecutive games with a 3-pointer ended at 37, two short of Mitch Richmonds franchise record. NOTES: The Kings were given a delay of game warning for not getting to centre court for the opening tip in time. ... McLemore poked Evans in the eye as he drove to the hoop. Evans missed both free throws while squinting at the basket. ... Kings G Jimmer Fredette, who played at nearby BYU, received loud cheers when he scored and boos when he brought the ball up the court. He finished with eight points. ... Sacramento outscored the Jazz 52-38 in the paint despite the absence of Cousins and Gay.
