FOXBOROUGH, Mass. Custom Denver Nuggets Jerseys . -- Tom Brady looks just fine. His fans and teammates are relieved. The key to the success of the New England Patriots participated fully in the teams walkthrough Thursday. He jogged with other players at the start. He dropped back normally to throw passes. And he didnt limp. An alarming situation -- he had left Wednesdays practice with an apparent left knee injury -- was just a false alarm. "Im good," was all Brady told waiting media members as he walked off the practice field Thursday after removing the black brace he wore during the workout. "You can all go home." Then, after signing some autographs and posing for pictures, the star quarterback walked back into Gillette Stadium where he may or may not play in Friday nights exhibition game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Patriots coach Bill Belichick didnt speak with reporters after the third and final day of joint practices with the Buccaneers. Brady was knocked down by left tackle Nate Solder after releasing a pass midway through Wednesdays session. Solder had been pushed into Brady by Buccaneers defensive end Adrian Clayborn. A person with knowledge of the situation said Brady sprained his left knee and an MRI was negative. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the Patriots did not make an announcement about Bradys health. But players knew quickly that their two-time league MVP was OK. "Right after practice, actually. We got the news pretty quick," running back Stevan Ridley said. "It was a scary moment, but really, with Tom, I know hes a competitor and hes going to do whatever to get him out there. Im just glad they took him out, checked him out and made sure he was good. So ... my hearts at peace knowing that hes OK and knowing that nothing majors going on." Brady suffered a season-ending injury to the same knee in the 2008 opener but hasnt missed a game since that year. "Thats our leader, man," Ridley said. "We ride with Tom Brady all the way and anytime you see somebody go down like that, kind of everything stops in front of you. But, for us, we just have to move on and hope for the best and thats what we did and we found out later that day at team meetings that he was OK and that was all the news that we needed to know, that our quarterback was going to be with us." For a while, with no information coming out, fans wondered if Brady was hurt badly. Many of them expressed their concerns on Twitter. "I think there were a lot of fans at home probably pulling out their hair," safety Devin McCourty said. It was a big story until reports surfaced that the injury wasnt serious. "I think you guys had more communication and more opinions than we did," McCourty told reporters. "We actually got to see him in the locker room and all that, so it wasnt as crazy as, I think, the media made it seem." Solder even had a restful night, despite his role. "I didnt let it affect my sleep," he said. "Its part of the game." The brace Brady wore Thursday was heavier than the one he had on a day earlier and similar to what he wears in games. He moved smoothly through the slow-speed walkthrough. During a hurry-up drill, Brady dropped back and completed two passes to tight end Zach Sudfeld and one to Aaron Dobson against minimal coverage. There was no sign that his knee was hindering him. After practice, he spent about a half hour on the field with his wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, their son Benjamin, 3, and Bradys son Jack, with actress Bridget Moynahan. He turns 6 on Wednesday. She threw a pass to her husband. He ran with his children. Jack threw the ball to her. Then Brady walked the length of the field and past the cameras and reporters, with a football tucked under his left arm and a steady stride. Belichick will decide whether he plays on Friday night. Its only an exhibition game, but Ridley said it matters whether Brady plays or not. "Its all a different ballgame when Bradys in the game," Ridley said. "I think it matters for everybody whos watching sports as well as the team thats out there on the field." Kenneth Faried Jersey . The Jets have now won three straight at home and four of the last five at the MTS Centre. After a scoreless first period, Brad Marchand scored his first goal in eight games eight seconds into the second.

Watch the game live on TSN2 and TSN GO at 10:30pm et/7:30pm pt. The Thunder, perhaps strengthened by the pregame MVP presentation to Kevin Durant Wednesday night, evened the series with a 112-101 victory in Game 2 at Chesapeake Energy Arena. Durant led the way with 32 points, 12 rebounds and nine assists for a near triple-double. Russell Westbrook did enough for his fourth postseason triple- double thanks to 31 points, 10 boards and 10 helpers. "We set the bar high for ourselves," Durant said. "We have a high standard that we try to reach. We work extremely hard. One thing about Russ, he demands so much out of everybody and brings the level of the team up with his intensity and his effort." What was absent in the Thunders 17-point loss at home on Monday was found in evening the series as role players like Thabo Sefolosha, Serge Ibaka and Kendrick Perkins all provided solid production. Sefolosha scored 12 of his 14 points in a momentum-building third quarter. The defensive specialist, who scored just 17 points in the first round against Memphis and didnt play a minute in Games 6 and 7, scored on back-to-back possessions to cap a 10-2 run in the third that stretched Oklahoma Citys lead to 78-66 midway through the period. Sefolosha then ignited an 11-0 flurry minutes later with a 3-pointer. Ibaka netted 14 with seven rebounds and Perkins pulled down nine boards for aa frontcourt that helped Oklahoma City to a 52-36 edge on the glass. Allen Iverson Jersey. But now the series shifts to Staples Center. OKC split two meetings in LA this season with the Clippers and is 3-1 in its last four as the visitor in this matchup. "We have to do the same thing in Los Angeles," OKC coach Scott Brooks said on Thursday. "We know how theyre feeling. After you lose, you want to come back and redeem (yourself) and play much better. We have to come out with the same mindset, same approach and same determination that we had last game." Chris Paul finished with 17 points and 11 assists to lead the Clippers but was far from the otherworldly force he was in the opener. J.J. Redick scored a team-high 18 points but had just two after halftime, and Blake Griffin, who finished third in the MVP voting, shot just 5-of-13 from the field for 15 points. The Clippers only made a third of their 3-point attempts (9-of-27) after connecting on 15-of-29 from long range in their homecourt-stealing Game 1 victory. "They were the more physical team," Clippers head coach Doc Rivers said. "I dont think we were very tough mentally tonight." Perhaps the Clippers can gain some momentum themselves from a player winning an award. On Thursday, Jamal Crawford was named the Sixth Man of the Year for the second time in his career. "Theres so many people that helped out with this," said Crawford. "My teammates, my coaching staff, I hope we can all share it." Game 4 will be Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles.
