The Atlanta Hawks Wholesale Saints Jerseys , fresh off a victory over LeBron James and Cleveland, saw their -six-game win streak snapped on Saturday by the NBA's second-worst team, Philadelphia, while the Cavaliers ripped Phoenix.


Philadelphia's Luc Mbah a Moute and Hollis Thompson each scored a game-high 19 points to lead the 76ers to a 92-84 victory over -Atlanta, who opted to rest three -starters.


In Cleveland, Russian big man Timofey Mozgov scored a game-high 19 points to power the Cavs past Phoenix 89-79.


The Hawks, who solidified their spot as the top team in the Eastern Conference by beating Cleveland 106-97 on Friday, squandered an 11-point lead after the first quarter against the lowly 76ers, who had lost nine of their prior 10 games.


Absences may have played a part. Starters -DeMarre -Carroll, Kyle Korver and Paul Millsap all sat out for rest. Korver didn't travel to Philadelphia. Pero Antic was sidelined by a sprained left ankle.


But the Hawks were also hurt by some sloppy play. They scored just 31 points in the second half.


Jeff Teague scored 17 points while Dennis -Schroeder added 16 points off the bench for the Hawks, but each had five turnovers.


The playoff-bound Hawks fell to 49-13 and behind Golden State (48-12) in the fight for the NBA's best overall record.


At Cleveland, Mozgov connected on six-of-eight shots from the floor and -seven-of-eight free throws in the triumph.


Four-time NBA MVP James added 17 points while Kevin Love had 13 points and 10 rebounds and Tristan Thompson came off the bench to score 15 points and grab 12 rebounds.


The Cavaliers improved to 40-25, just ahead of Toronto and just behind Chicago in the fight for second place in the East.


James, who was sharply critical of himself after he coughed up nine turnovers in the loss to Atlanta on -Friday, also had eight assists on Saturday, matching Mark Price's Cleveland club record of 4,206 assists.


"I think it's a pretty cool feat," he said.


The Cavs led by as many as 32 points in the third -quarter. They scored just nine in the final frame, but James was pleased with the defensive effort that had -allowed them to build the big cushion.


"At one point I looked up at the scoreboard and saw they were shooting 27 percent," he said.


"That let me know that we were in tune with the game plan. We came out and -executed. We contested shots, rebounded and we played some really good basket-ball."


SHIJIAZHUANG, Nov. 30 (Xinhua) -- Authorities in China's northern Hebei Province on Wednesday issued an air pollution red alert for heavy smog, the first high-level warning issued by the province this year.


According to the authorities, the smog will hit the province from Dec. 2 to 4. Most cities in the province's central and southern regions are placed under red alert.


In some cities, cars are banned on roads depending on if their license plate ends in an odd or even number; in the city of Xingtai, factories have been told to cut emission by half and construction sites to suspend operations.


Education authorities have not yet decided whether to cancel classes in kindergartens, middle schools and primary schools.


The provincial capital Shijiazhuang's Air Quality Index (AQI) reading reached 466 on Wednesday night. Similar poor readings were recorded in cities of Langfang, Cangzhou, Hengshui and Xinji.


China has a four-tier color-coded system for severe weather, with red being the most serious, followed by orange, yellow and blue. The meteorological authorities issue alerts when the AQI reaches 200 and severe air pollution is forecast to last at least one day.




MEXICO CITY, July 11 (Xinhua) -- The 6th Olympic Games were supposed to have been held in Berlin in 1916. However, due to the First World War, they were suspended even though the numbering of the Games were kept the same, as if they had gone ahead as originally planned in Germany.


After the war, the accumulated resentment headed to Belgium, the 1920 7th Olympics host, as the countries that lost the war were banned from competing. Despite this, the Games had the highest number of participants since the start of the modern Olympics back in Athens 1896.


The Games took place in the city of Antwerp, from April 20 to September 12 with 2,622 athletes (65 women) from 29 countries participating in 156 disciplines from 22 sports.


In 1919, during the International Olympic Committee's (IOC) congress in Lausanne, Switzerland, Antwerp was chosen to host the Games which were to be known as the "Games of Peace." For that reason, the Belgian city only had one year to prepare for the Games of the VII Olympiad, as it is officially known.


However, despite pressure from the IOC, the hosts stuck to their decision about not inviting the countries that had invaded their country during WWI - Austria, Bulgaria, Germany, Hungary and the Ottoman Empire (Turkey). Also the Soviet Union did not receive an invitation to the sporting event.


During the Opening Ceremony, the Olympic flag with the five rings signifying the five continents and the universality of the Olympic Games was waved for the first time.


The Olympic oath was also voiced for the first time during this ceremony: "We swear. We will take part in the Olympic Games in a spirit of chivalry, for the honor of our country and for the glory of sport." It was taken by Belgian fencer and water polo player Victor Boin on behalf of all competitors. During the ceremony 2,000 white doves were released as a symbol of peace.


Finland shocked the world in this Olympics since the Scandinavian country, whose delegation only had 60 athletes, won 15 gold medals. Their two most famous figures where Hanes Kolehmainen and Paavo Nurmi.
