SAN ANTONIO -- Donald Sterling hasnt quite given up the fight, but Adam Silver thinks the time is coming. Tony Gonzalez Chiefs Jersey . "While I understand his frustration, I think its over," Silver said Sunday. The NBA commissioner said Sterling still hasnt signed off on the sale of the Los Angeles Clippers, or agreed to drop his lawsuit against Silver or the NBA. But Silver believes he ultimately will, because Shelly Sterlings agreement with the league covers the NBAs legal responsibilities in case of a suit. "So in essence, Donald is suing himself and he knows that," Silver said. Silver also said before Game 2 of the NBA Finals that there is "absolutely no possibility" of rescinding the lifetime ban or $2.5 million fine he handed down to Sterling following his racist remarks. Silver said he spoke with Sterling shortly after delivering his punishments and found him to be "distraught" but "not remorseful at that time." Sterlings attorneys had eventually indicated to the league that he would drop his fight and work with his estranged wife to finish off the record $2 billion sale to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. Sterling may be changing his mind now, but Silver doesnt seem concerned. "I think its just a matter of time now, and then we will move on to better topics and back to the finals," Silver said. The dominant topic at the finals thus far has been the air conditioning failure in Game 1. Temperatures in the arena rose to about 90 degrees in the second half, and Heat star LeBron James left the game with about 4 minutes left after battling cramps. Silver said he is satisfied the problem has been fixed and that the situation was handled as best as possible after the circuit breaker failed just before the game, leaving no time for repair. ""In hindsight it wasnt handled perfectly, but theyd never been confronted with that issue before," said Silver, who was at the game and communicating with league and arena officials. "I would say that its certainly not one of my prouder moments in my short tenure as commissioner so far, but its the nature of this game. There always are going to be human and mechanical errors and its unfortunate." With the Sterling situation, and the rocky first finals game of his tenure, Silver has had some difficult moments during his first four months on the job. He replaced David Stern on Feb. 1, and both men have said they proud of the way the transition was handled. Silver was designated as Sterns successor in October 2012, when Stern announced his plans to retire as commissioner. But Silver had already been taking on more responsibilities by then, serving as the leagues lead negotiator during the lockout in 2011, and Stern repeatedly said he was confident Silver was the man to take the NBA to new heights. But Silver probably couldnt have imagined some of the things he would face so soon. "Its the early days. Ive done the best I could," Silver said. He has been widely praised for his response to Sterlings remarks, though said Sunday in hindsight he wishes perhaps the NBA could have done more sooner after previous allegations of racist behaviour by Sterling. However, something is being done now. "I take very seriously the fact that he has a pending lawsuit against the league. So I want to make sure thats resolved before we say this is behind us, but I have absolute confidence it will be," Silver said. Tyreek Hill Chiefs Jersey . A knee to the thigh might have stung him the most, but his sixth straight double-double made up for the brief burst of pain. Len Dawson Womens Jersey . -- Jaye Marie Green shot a course-record 10-under 62 on Wednesday to take the first-round lead in the LPGA Tours qualifying tournament.Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Russell Wilson accounted for three touchdowns, including one on a 15-yard pass to Marshawn Lynch that helped the Seattle Seahawks pull away in the second half for a 24-14 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. Lynchs touchdown came after Eagles running back LeSean McCoy fumbled on the first play from scrimmage in the third quarter and extended Seattles lead to 17-7. Were high on confidence because we put the work in during the week, said Wilson. Later, in another key sequence in the fourth quarter, the Seahawks dodged a bullet after Lynch lost a fumble for the first time this season. Tharold Simon intercepted Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez on the next play, protecting Seattles 10-point lead. The Seahawks (9-4) controlled the game more than the score showed, holding Chip Kellys fast-paced offense to just 139 yards in 18 minutes of possession to get their third win in a row. Ill give them credit, said Kelly, the Eagles coach. They did a hell of a job on defense. The Eagles (9-4) had a 10-game regular season home winning streak snapped and fell into a tie with Dallas for first place in the NFC East nine days after beating the Cowboys convincingly on Thanksgiving. The Seahawks, who were also coming off a win over division rival San Francisco on Thanksgiving, remained a game behind Arizona in the NFC West. Wilson was 22-of-37 passing for 263 yards and two touchdowns and scrambled for a 26-yard score in the first half that countered an early Eagles touchdown. Lynch rushed 23 times for 86 yards -- going over 1,000 yards for the fourth season in a row -- and Doug Baldwin had five catches for 97 yards and a score. Sanchez completed just 10 of his 20 passes for 96 yards in his fifth straight start for the injured Nick Foles. He threw touchdown passes to Jeremy Maclin and Zach Ertz, but McCoy ran for just 50 yards on 17 carries against a stout Seattle front four. Philadelphias division lead disappeared with the loss, which came three days after Dallas beat the Bears on Thursday night in Chicago. The Cowboys will visit Philadelphia for a key game next Sunday night. The Eagles were held to 67 yards of offense in the first half and McCoy lost a fumble when he was stripped by linebacker K. Justin Houston Jersey. J. Wright and safety Earl Thomas dove into the pile to get the ball. That led to Lynchs 15-yard touchdown reception for Seattles 17-7 lead. The Eagles cut their deficit to three points after two big plays: Josh Huffs 46-yard kickoff return -- Seattle thought he fumbled, but lost the challenge -- and Sanchezs 35-yard touchdown pass to Ertz, who made the catch near the left sideline behind Wright and stumbled into the end zone. But a 44-yard pass interference penalty on the Eagles helped the Seahawks push their lead to 24-14 on Wilsons 23-yard touchdown strike to Baldwin, who beat Malcolm Jenkins to get open with nine minutes left in the third quarter. Linebacker Mychal Kendricks got a helmet on the ball to force Lynchs fumble in the fourth, which was recovered by the Eagles at their own 30. But Sanchez threw behind Riley Cooper on the next play and Simon easily picked it off. On another missed Philadelphia opportunity, Jenkins jumped a pass intended for tight end Tony Moeaki and nearly had an interception with momentum that might have carried him to the end zone. Instead, Seattle punted, then sacked Sanchez two times on Philadelphias final possession. The Seahawks gave up seven points after punter Jon Ryan dropped the ball and the Eagles recovered it at the Seattle 14, leading to Sanchezs 1-yard pass to Maclin on the left side for a 7-0 lead with 3:37 left in the first quarter. The Seahawks responded with an 82-yard drive, tying the score when Wilson scored untouched on a 26-yard scramble on the second play of the second quarter after faking a handoff. Wilson had two big completions on 3rd-and-long plays near the end of the half, hitting Baldwin and Paul Richardson for 20-yard gains to set up Steven Hauschkas 44-yard field goal for a 10-7 lead going into the break.
