CHICAGO -- After wrecking two drivers he felt didnt race him cleanly in the past two weeks,?Tony Stewart?says he isnt worried?about NASCAR watching him extra close during the Chase for the Sprint Cup.It isnt because Stewart is taking an attitude that he would accept any NASCAR punishment, an attitude that he has displayed in the past. He just believes hell have to race with a little less retaliation on his mind in his final Chase, which begins Sunday at Chicagoland Speedway.Stewart, speaking Thursday at the Chase media day, indicated he will have a different philosophy over the final 10 races of the season than when he turned Brian Scott at Darlington two weeks ago and cut into the nose of Ryan Newman at Richmond last week.Asked?about NASCAR officials possibly watching him more, Stewart said, It doesnt matter if they do or dont.Its time for the Chase now, he said. Its a whole different mindset and a whole different approach each week. Weve got to go out and worry about what we have to do to win a championship and not worry about the other stuff.Stewart, who will retire from Sprint Cup racing after this season,?has not made the Chase since 2012. Will he retaliate against another driver who hits him three times, as Newman did at Richmond?Probably not, said Stewart, a three-time Cup champion. Even in this first phase [of the Chase], theres half of the field that is not even a factor in what the 16 of us are trying to do. Youve got to sit there and race a little different.When youre locked in the Chase and youre where you need to be in points and couldnt get knocked out, its a little easier to let the other stuff be a distraction. ... Theres times that guys are going to lean on you and youre going to have to look the other way, but its what you have to do to win this thing.Newman, who was a long shot to make the Chase at Richmond, called Stewart bipolar and said he had anger issues after being taken out by Stewart, his former car owner and teammate. NASCAR has said it would get the two drivers together Friday if they do not talk before then.Stewart said he expects that meeting to happen Friday. He also said he expects NASCAR to warn them against a potential repeat of last years incident in which Matt Kenseth retaliated against leader Joey Logano at Martinsville. Kenseth, who was down nine laps when the incident occurred, was suspended for two races.I would say it probably will just happen at the trailer, Stewart said. Theyre trying to make sure they dont have a scenario like what they had last year with Joey and Matt.I think it gets a little bit blown out of proportion for each individual incident, but theyre just making sure they dont get themselves in that kind of scenario.While the two drivers havent talked, Stewart said he isnt taking Newmans comments personally.That was a deciding factor in his season, whether he was going to make the Chase or not, he said. Weve been friends a long time, and teammates, and I respect him a lot. Its a high-pressure moment.Ive been in those, too, and Ive said things. Whether he meant to say it or not or whether he still believes in it or not, its up to him. That moment is a hard moment for any of us. Cheap Old Skool Ireland . JOHNS, N.

Durant finished with 24 points and 13 rebounds, Jackson matched his career high with 23 points on 10-of-14 shooting and Lamb scored 12 points on 5-of-7 shooting, lifting the Thunder to a 94-88 win over San Antonio and snapping the Spurs 11-game winning streak. Two teams seemingly headed in opposite directions will clash when the Ole Miss Rebels host the No. 15 Auburn Tigers at 7:15 p.m. ET Saturday at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in Oxford (SEC Network).The Tigers (5-2, 3-1 SEC) will take a four-game winning streak into the game after beginning the year with losses in two of their first three games, albeit to highly regarded Clemson and Texas A&M.The Rebels (3-4, 1-2) lost their last two games and have fallen under the .500 mark for the first time since they were sitting at 5-6 late in the 2012 season before winning their last two games.And while the Tigers look to establishing themselves as a challenger to SEC West Division leader unbeaten Alabama, the Rebels find themselves needing to win three of their last five games to reach the six-win level for automatic bowl eligibility.And one more thing: The Tigers are coming off an impressive 56-3 dismantling of an Arkansas team that dealt the Rebels a 34-30 setback the week before. The Rebels lost 38-21 to LSU last week while the Tigers were churning out 543 yards rushing against the Razorbacks. Thats the most ground yardage ever for an SEC team against an SEC opponent.When we get the tempo going, especially being able to tempo and downhill run, we are at our best, Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said of the offensive explosion that saw the Tigers average 9.5 yards a carry.That creates a worrisome scenario for the Rebels, who are having problems stopping people. After surrendering an SEC single-game school record of 284 rushing yards to LSU star running back Leonard Fournette last week, the Rebels are 113th out of 128 FBS teams against the run and dont rank any better than 70th nationally in pass defense, total defense or scoring defense.The unit now will be tasked with trying to halt, or at least slow, an Auburn offense that seems to be hitting its stride.Quarterback Sean White is playing with confidence and has become a team leader since getting off to a slow start. The sophoomore, who started five games last year, threw a touchdown pass and rushed for another in the rout of Arkansas.ddddddddddddhe Tigers also displayed their depth in the backfield. With starter Kerryon Johnson held out to protect an ankle injury, backup Kamryn Pettway rushed for a career-high 192 yards and two touchdowns. Johnson likely will return against the Rebels.Im sure theyre going to come out and see it as a weakness to run the ball, Ole Miss defensive end Victor Evans said. Weve just got to handle it.Ole Miss offense, meanwhile, seems to be running into a wall in the second half of recent outings. The SECs second-ranked scoring offense has scored 10 total points in the second half of losses to Arkansas and LSU -- all of them coming in the fourth quarter against the Razorbacks -- and mustered just 104 yards in the final two quarters against LSU.I wish I knew, quarterback Chad Kelly said when asked what was behind the recent second-half struggles. Weve just to play harder and have the mental makeup that were going out to the second half to a team thats going to make adjustments. Weve got to execute better.Going against Auburns defense is not exactly an easy way to remedy the situation.A healthy Carl Lawson is leading the surge up front. The Auburn junior has been a terror off the edge with 6.5 sacks and eight tackles for loss. Senior tackle Montravius Adams has three sacks and six tackles for loss as the Tigers have recorded 18 sacks and 46 tackles behind the line of scrimmage.Maybe the best defense as far as points per game that weve seen, Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said. Only giving up 14 points a game is unheard of almost these days.You watch them on tape and you see why, and now their rushing game is back to what theyve been known for. So they are an outstanding football team that will provide us another great challenge. ' ' '
