PORTLAND, Ore. -- Vancouver Whitecaps midfielder Russell Teibert showed his class Monday night in a 45-minute outing in the inaugural Chipotle Homegrown Game. The game against the Portland Timbers under-23 team ended in a 0-0 draw on a warm, muggy night before an enthusiastic but less than full Providence Park. Teibert, who signed a multi-year deal last month to extend his time with the Whitecaps, demonstrated his vision and creativity for a Homegrown squad featuring young talent who have come up the ranks of MLS clubs. The Canadian international roved across midfield, starting on the left before expanding his domain and triggered many of the Homegrown attacks. The 21-year-old from Niagara Falls, Ont., demanded the ball and often played conductor, telling his teammates where he wanted them to be. "I enjoyed it and I think its a milestone to be a part of," Teibert said later. "And not only in the sense that its the first Homegrown game but it represents a pathway for all younger players in North American to strive for and be part of. And that is the MLS youth teams, residency teams and developmental teams." Will Trapp of the Columbus Crew replaced Teibert at halftime with the score 0-0 as the Homegrown side rang in the changes. Teibert may have been sacrificed with an eye to Vancouvers game Sunday away to Sporting Kansas City Toronto FC left back Ashtone Morgan was the most experienced of the Homegrown squad, with Teibert close behind. Morgan, 23, has made 67 league appearances for Toronto but has seen just one minute of league play this season as he sits behind veteran Justin Morrow. Teibert has made 55 league appearances for the Whitecaps including 11 this season. The two are friends and spent time together with the Toronto academy before Teibert headed west in 2008 to join the Whitecaps residency program. Teibert delivered a fine cross in the fourth minute but Chivas USA forward Caleb Calvert failed to get a foot to it. Another laser-like cross produced a corner in the 16th minute as a defender just managed to deflect it away. Teibert also put a long-distance shot on goal in between, producing a save from Portland goalie Justin Luthy. James Moberg hit the post for the young Timbers in the 10th minute. Portland midfielder Fatai Alashe came close with a header off a corner in the 38th but was off-target. Homegrown keeper Matt Lampson of the Columbus Crew stopped Kharlton Belmar from in-close soon after when Miguel Aguilar unlocked the defence with a fine pass. Teibert combined well with Morgan late in the first half, with the Toronto fullback producing a diving save from Luthy to parry a Morgan cross. "Whenever I play with Ash, its always fun," said Teibert. "I wish we could play together more. But any time we do get the opportunity, we do seems to click. Credit to him. Hes a great fullback and I hope he gets more time this season because he definitely deserves it." "We just get each other," added Morgan. Teibert had four of the Homegrown teams shots in the first half. The game opened up in the second half with more scoring chances for both sides -- with one glorious opportunity apiece in stoppage time. Morgan exited late in the second half after going down with leg cramps battling two defenders on a run down the wing. He left with a smile. "It was good," he said. "I was surrounded by great players. We just started moving the ball, 1/8possessed the ball. I felt good out there. It felt real good to be back on the pitch." Homegrown goalie Jon Kempin of Sporting Kansas City, who came on to start the second half, won man of the match honours. All MLS clubs were asked to nominate eligible players for the game. Based on availability, injuries and other criteria, the final 20 were selected in consultation with MLS director of player programs who will coach the team. Under the leagues homegrown policy, clubs can sign a player to his first pro contract without subjecting him to the MLS SuperDraft if the player has trained for at least one year in the clubs youth development program and has trained 80 days with the academy during that year. The issue of homegrown versus the college route was raised earlier in the day when MLS all-star Thierry Henry was asked about his preference for developing youth. "How you improve and how you progress is hours and repetition and work," said the former French international, now with the New York Red Bulls. The 36-year-old Henry said college players may emerge at a disadvantage compared to those who went another route. "For example, a kid in Europe will be training every day since hes 13 years old. So that amount of time that youre losing is huge." MLS all-star coach Caleb Porter, a former University of Akron coach who is in charge of the Portland Timbers, agreed. "The sooner you can get kids in a high-level environment thats as close to being professional as possible. The more time you get in that environment, the more you develop players." Porter said adding more training and matches to the collegiate game would help that side of the development ladder "I agree with Thierry. Kids coming into the pros at 23, 23 years old, its tough."

"We were feeling it," Wesley Matthews said after Portland set franchise and league 3-point records in a 130-98 win over the struggling Utah Jazz on Friday. Matthews scored 24 points and LaMarcus Aldridge added 20 points and 15 rebounds for the surging Blazers, who have won four straight and 15 of 16. Portland made 17 of 23 shots from 3-point range for 73.9 per cent, an NBA record for a team with at least 20 attempts, according to basketball-reference.com. Portland also surpassed its previous franchise mark of 16 3-pointers. Damian Lillard added 21 points and Nicolas Batum had 13 for the Blazers. Alec Burks had 16 points to lead the Jazz, who trailed by as many as 42. They have lost 10 of 11 games on the road this season. Gordon Hayward, Jeremy Evans and John Lucas III scored 10 apiece. "It wasnt a lack of effort," Hayward said. "It just started to snowball on us." With the best record in the Western Conference, the Blazers (17-3) have been one of the NBAs most surprising teams. After winning only 33 games last season, Portland has more than half that total. And after beating Indiana and Oklahoma City in their last two games, the Blazers have even received some national notoriety, including being the subject of a New York Times feature story Thursday. Aldridge has scored 20 points or more in all but four games this season. He was serenaded with chants of "MVP! MVP!" after putting up 38 points and 13 rebounds in Portlands 111-104 win over the Thunder on Wednesday. Portlands sharp jump shooting has required opponents to respect the outside shooters and not spend so much time containing Aldridge inside, which has led to his increasing dominance. "Last year I was getting doubled a lot. Theres a lot more 1-on-1 play now," he said.dddddddddddd While the Blazers are leading the West, Utah (4-17) is in the basement. The Jazz entered with the least potent offence in the conference at 91.2 points per game. Utah shot just 41 per cent Friday but it was defence that left coach Tyrone Corbin shaking his head. The Jazz were outscored 39-22 in the first quarter and 40-13 in the third. "If you give up 40 points in a quarter and 30 points in a quarter, its like youre not even on the floor," Corbin said. Utah point guard Trey Burke struggled to contain Lillard early and scored seven points in 16 minutes. Burke, a rookie from Michigan, has given the Jazz a lift since moving into the starting lineup over the past seven games, and Utah is 3-4 during that stretch. There was talk of a "trap game" in the Portland locker room before the game, and the Blazers were wary of a letdown. It was clear from the beginning that wouldnt happen. The Blazers led by as many as 17 in the first quarter and, other than a lag when the Jazz cut the lead to 48-40 in the second, controlled the whole game. Lillard scored all his points in the first half and the Blazers led 67-56 at the break. They scored the first 10 points of the third and extended their lead to 89-59 by the middle of the quarter. Portland led 107-69 entering the final period. "I think we came out and took care of business," Dorell Wright said. "They made their run in the second quarter, and I think we responded well in the second half as far as coming out and getting stops and making our shots." NOTES: Batum wrote "R.I.P.
