RIO DE JANEIRO - Taking on LeBron James isnt the biggest concern for the Miami Heat in Rio de Janeiro. The team is still trying to figure out how to incorporate all the new faces that have replaced him.When the Heat play James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in a preseason game in Rio on Saturday, the main focus is on speeding up the rebuilding process after losing their biggest star.Dwyane Wade acknowledged Friday that there is a lot of work to do before the regular season starts.Weve got to learn every day, there are a lot of teams that are so far ahead of us as teams, Wade said.The game in Rio will be Miamis third in the preseason. It lost to the New Orleans Pelicans and the Orlando Magic earlier this month. No wonder the word patience was thrown around quite a bit on Friday.We are trying to understand that we are behind the eight ball because weve got 13 new guys, Wade said. Weve only been together for 10 days on the basketball floor. Weve got to all understand that weve got to have patience, because the last two years just happened, we had the same team and it just happened. But now this is not that kind of team, so we all have to have patience and understand that its a process.Chris Bosh, the other remaining member of the Heats former Big Three, said everyone knows this team will have to work harder than in previous years to make sure its ready for the Oct. 29 opener against the Washington Wizards.With this team we have to be patient with each other, he said. We have to get better at it and its going to take time. We are going to make mistakes and we have to understand that.We are not even close right now, but I like where we are headed, Bosh added. Guys are enthusiastic, its a very hard-working group. We are starting to pay attention to details, we are starting to really grasp how things go. Saturday will be another opportunity for us to get better.Coach Erik Spoelstra has been downplaying the encounter with James, trying to focus instead how to improve the revamped team.Spoelstra said he is trying to install a defensive system and thats taking some time. He said there is some growth to go in that area.Its always different when you have new faces, Spoelstra said. And thats the journey we are on right now with this group and we are trying to fast-track it. Thats why this week is an important week for us.Cavs coach David Blatt pointed out that the Heat arent the only ones with new players.We have a lot of new faces too, Blatt said. At this stage it really doesnt affect either team. Both teams are very much in the beginning of their respective processes and we are hopeful that this game, like any other game in the preseason, will help us grow.___Follow Tales Azzoni at http://www.twitter.com/tazzoni Ethan Ampadu Jersey . Jets head coach Paul Maurice made the announcement Saturday following the morning skate and confirmed Al Montoya will start in goal against the Dallas Stars on Sunday. Eduardo Jersey . The Brazilian-born strikers brace drew him level with Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo as the leagues leading scorers with 17 goals apiece through 16 rounds. "The important thing is to help the team win, not the goals," Diego Costa said. After a first half dominated by defence, Atletico pressed Valencia into its area and Diego Costa did the rest. http://www.chelseafcproshop.com/Kids-Eden-Hazard-Jersey/ . Ramon, 30, played in a career-high 97 games with the Goldeyes in 2013. He also matched a career-high eight home runs and posted 52 RBI. Charly Musonda Jersey . In taking its goal tally to 99 in all competitions already this season, City delivered another demonstration of its lethal firepower at Etihad Stadium to set up a fourth-round match at home to another second-tier team -- Watford. Ola Aina Jersey . -- The San Francisco 49ers have re-signed cornerback Perrish Cox to a one-year contract.CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Andy Dalton caught a touchdown pass -- the first Bengals quarterback to pull off that feat. The defence nearly pitched a shutout. And Cincinnati got plenty of help from a sloppy Tennessee team that had just received sad news. Dalton turned his first career reception into a touchdown on Sunday, and the Bengals stayed undefeated with a 33-7 victory over the Titans. The Bengals (3-0) head into their bye week with their best start in eight years and a chance to get some of their many injured players healthy. They got a lot of big plays, a few breaks and plenty of help from a team dealing with the death of a long-time player. A few hours before kickoff, the Titans (1-2) learned that kicker Rob Bironas had died overnight in a one-car crash in Nashville. Hed been released in March after his ninth season with Tennessee. Everything went wrong for the Titans, who committed a safety for holding in the end zone on a punt, missed two field goal attempts, snapped the ball before Jake Locker was ready in shotgun formation, and whiffed on the games defining play. On the final play of the first quarter, Dalton flipped the ball to receiver Mohamed Sanu, who ran to his right while the quarterback sneaked toward the other side of the field. Sanu stopped and threw a cross-field pass that hung in the air. Cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson had a chance to pick it off or level the quarterback, who was reaching to catch the ball. Wreh-Wilson ddid neither, lightly bumping Dalton as he ran by him.dddddddddddd The quarterback made the catch and ran 18 yards, diving inside the pylon at the goal line to score. He was the first NFL quarterback to score on a catch since Kansas Citys Tyler Thigpen in 2008. Daltons threw his first interception -- Cincinnatis first turnover of the season -- with 44 seconds left before halftime. But Locker forced a throw into coverage in the end zone for an off-setting interception that left the Bengals with a 19-0 halftime lead. The Bengals didnt have to do much in the second half other than let their defence finish it off. Dalton was 15 of 23 for 169 yards and wasnt sacked for the third straight game. Pro Bowl receiver A.J. Green, who missed most of the last game with an injured big right toe, started and had six catches for 102 yards. He also drew a pair of pass interference penalties from Wreh-Wilson. Giovani Bernard had a pair of 1-yard touchdown runs. His dive with 1:58 left in the third quarter completed a 14-play, 80-yard drive that lasted 7 minutes, 18 seconds and finished off Tennessee. The Titans repeatedly undercut drives with penalties. Locker was 17 of 34 for 185 yards with two interceptions, two sacks and a passer rating of 41.9. Ryan Succop missed field goal attempts of 40 and 44 yards in the first half, helping Cincinnati take control. The Titans ended the shutout on Shonn Greenes 1-yard touchdown run with 6:09 to go.
