CARACAS, Venezuela -- Andrew Nicholson had one of his best games of the FIBA Americas Championship, but Canada has still been pushed to the brink at the basketball tournament. Charles Clay Jersey . Nicholson scored 29 points in Canadas 81-74 loss to the Dominican Republic on Saturday in the tournaments second round. Only the top four teams can advance to the playoffs and Canada (3-3) currently sits fourth. The Canadians will play Argentina on Sunday in their final game of the second round. "We just have to play the best that we can in the game," said head coach Jay Triano. "If we play, then we give ourselves a chance. If we dont play then obviously we dont. "Its a must win for us and then well see what happens." Tristan Thompson had 14 points and six rebounds for Canada, while Cory Joseph had 13 points and four assists. James Feldeine led the Dominican Republic (4-2) with 20 points. Canada jumped out to a quick start with a 28-18 advantage after the first quarter. That lead evaporated in the second though, as the Canadians were outplayed by the Dominican Republic. The Carribbean nation took a 45-44 lead going into halftime despite Nicholson scoring 15 points in 17 minutes of the first half. "We knew that we had a mismatch at the four spot, and we thought that we could get (Nicholson) the basketball," said Triano. "We saw last night (in Canadas loss to Venezuala) that if he doesnt score its going to be tough for us to score points. We only had 59 points. We knew we needed to get him the ball." The Domincans added just one point to its lead in the third, taking a 59-57 advantage into the final quarter. Canada was not able to gain any ground on the Dominican Republic in the fourth quarter. Canada has four NBA players on its roster for the tournament. Nicholson plays for the Orlando Magic, Joseph is with the San Antonio Spurs, Thompson is a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers and centre Joel Anthony is on the Miami Heat. "Were here to learn about the international game," said Triano. "The players that were playing are the youngest players in the tournament. Thats why were here, its a long-term process." The FIBA Americas Championship is a qualifying tournament for the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain. Thurman Thomas Jersey . The game was the first of two international friendlies that Canada is playing during the international break, with the second game against Slovenia set for Tuesday in Celje. Canada looked uncomfortable defensively throughout the game, and every free kick that came into Canadas penalty box looked like ending up in the back of the net. Bruce Smith Jersey http://www.shoptheofficialbills.com/Elite-Jim-Kelly-Bills-Jersey/ .Y. -- The New York Islanders were seeking a positive finish to a frustrating season on home ice.DOHA, Qatar -- Third-seeded Andy Murray, playing in his first tournament since back surgery in late September, was upset by Florian Mayer of Germany 3-6, 6-4, 6-2 in the second round of the Qatar Open on Wednesday. Top-ranked Rafael Nadal was also taken to three sets but emerged with a 6-3, 6-7 (3), 6-3 win over Tobias Kamke of Germany, while second-seeded David Ferrer joined Murray in making an early exit after a 6-4, 7-5 loss to Daniel Brands of Germany. Murray was leading 6-3, 3-0 when the 40th-ranked Mayer started to play more aggressively, going for winners on nearly every shot. The German won 12 of the last 15 games, closing out the match with a net-cord winner to seal the win in 1 hour, 51 minutes. Murray hit 25 winners, but the reigning Wimbledon champion also had 37 unforced errors. "I didnt have extremely high expectations, because I havent obviously played a match for a long time," Murray said. "You dont know exactly how your body is going to respond." The last four times Murray playedd a tournament during the first week of the new season he captured the title: in 2008 and 09 at Doha, and 2012 and 13 at Brisbane. Nathan Peterman Jersey. Nadal trailed 4-1 in the second set but bounced back to level it at 4-4 before Kamke dominated the tiebreaker, taking a 5-0 lead. Nadal earned three breaks in the match -- one in each set -- and each time Kamke double-faulted on break point. "Important win," said Nadal, who next faces seventh-seeded Ernests Gulbis of Latvia. "I spent a lot of time on court, so thats important for my preparation, too." Gael Monfils upset fellow Frenchman and defending champion Richard Gasquet 6-2, 7-5 in the final match of the night. The fifth-seeded Gasquet has been dealing with a back problem this week. Two other seeded players, No. 6 Philipp Kohlschreiber and No. 8 Fernando Verdasco, were also eliminated. Kohschreiber fell to qualifier and fellow German Peter Gojowczyk 7-6 (4), 7-6 (7), while Verdasco lost to Victor Hanescu of Romania 4-6, 7-6 (0), 6-2.
