Aaron Cruden will return from injury to start at flyhalf in one of two changes to New Zealands lineup against Argentina for the Rugby Championship test at Mar del Plata on Saturday. James Harden Jersey . Cruden suffered a knee injury in New Zealands first championship match against Australia on Aug. 17 but returns as a replacement for Daniel Carter, who injured his shoulder in the All Blacks most recent match against South Africa. Injuries have forced New Zealand to use four starting flyhalves in as many matches in the championship -- Cruden, Carter, Beauden Barrett and debutant Tom Taylor -- but havent disturbed its unbeaten campaign. Andrew Hore will return at hooker after being rested in the previous game and replaced by Dane Coles. "We are very happy with where Dane is at and with his performances of late," coach Steve Hansen said. "But like a lot of the young players, we are also mindful of managing their game time as part of their development so have brought in Andrew to start this week." The return of the 79-test veteran Hore means the New Zealand starting lineup has a combined total of 809 tests and 11 of the players who took part in the equivalent match in Argentina last year which the All Blacks won 54-15. "This game has huge significance with regard to us having any chance of winning the Rugby Championship," Hansen said. "As always, we are expecting a huge challenge from Argentina and a very vocal crowd but everyone is looking forward to embracing this challenge." Hansen resisted the temptation to rest many players given the match next week against South Africa in Johannesburg could be the title decider. "Within reason were trying to pick the best team most times we play," he said. "Cruden has earned the right to start just as Dan Carter has when he comes back. Beauden will have to be patient and wait his time off the bench." Argentina made six changes to its lineup. Lock Patricio Albacete, playing in France for Toulouse, returns for his 54th test while Eusebio Guinzau comes in at hooker, forcing Agustin Creevy to the bench. Marcelo Bosch and Santiago Fernandez replace Felipe Contepomi and Gonzalo Tiesi in a double change in midfield while Martin Landajo and Lucas Gonzalez Amorosino also return to the starting side. New Zealand and Argentina have met in 18 tests and the Pumas are still seeking their first win. ------ Lineups: New Zealand: Israel Dagg, Ben Smith, Conrad Smith, Maa Nonu, Julian Savea, Aaron Cruden, Aaron Smith, Kieran Read (captain), Sam Cane, Liam Messam, Sam Whitelock, Brodie Retallick, Owen Franks, Andrew Hore, Tony Woodcock.

A quick first step to get to the hoop for a layup. A rousing dunk on the break off a high outlet pass saved by teammate Ramon Sessions.CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Al Jefferson knows few people will be giving the Charlotte Bobcats a chance to upset the Miami Heat in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. That doesnt matter to the veteran centre. "They didnt give us a chance in October, if you remember," Jefferson said. "We were going to be last in the league, right? So we dont worry about what is said outside of these walls right here." The Bobcats defeated the Chicago Bulls 91-86 in overtime on Wednesday night to finish the season 43-39 and as the seventh seed in the East. Not bad for a team that was a combined 28-120 over the previous two seasons. But now there is the monumental task of beating the two-time defending NBA champions, something the Bobcats havent done in the LeBron James era. The Heat are 15-0 against the Bobcats since James signed. "Its going to be a challenge, but its the playoffs and anything can happen," Bobcats guard Kemba Walker said. "Its not going to be easy. Were going to go out there and give it all we got just like we have been doing all year." The series starts on Sunday. "Its going to be a dogfight," Jefferson said. The Bulls finished as the No. 4 seed in the East and will face the Washington in the first round after the Wizards leap-frogged the Brooklyn Nets on the final night of the season to grab the fifth spot. "They are a great transition team with a lot of shooters and size," Bulls forward Carlos Boozer said. "To make the playoffs you have to be a good team, and theyre a good team." After missing a jumper that would have won the game in regulation, Walker scored eight of his 22 points in overtime to help the Bobcats beat the Bulls for the first time this season and finish the regular season with eight wins in their final nine games. Jefferson added 10 points and 18 rebounds for Charlotte, and Chris Douglas-Roberts finished with 13 points after being held scoreless for the first three quarters. Josh McRoberts made a key play in overtime, his block of D.J. Augustins 3-point attempt leading to a fast-break layup by Walker that gave the Bobcats an 888-81 lead with 1 minute left. Nene Jersey. "This was the type of game we needed going into the playoffs," Jefferson said. "Thats a playoff team and thats a playoff game that we played tonight." Joakim Noah finished with 14 points and 13 rebounds for Chicago, Boozer added 14 points and 11 rebounds, and Augustin scored 17 points. The Bulls came in having won 10 of their last 11 against the Bobcats, including five straight in Charlotte by an average of 22 points per game. And it looked early on like this would be another road blowout for Michael Jordans former team. The Bobcats started the game cold, missing 21 of their first 29 shots from the field to fall behind 33-23. But Jefferson hit a short jumper and the Bobcats made 11 straight shots to take 43-37 lead at halftime. After a back-and-forth third quarter, the Bulls entered the final period leading 60-59. Every time Chicago attempted to pull away, Douglas-Roberts seemed to have an answer. Two nights after a buzzer-beater to sink the Atlanta Hawks, Douglas-Roberts had 12 points in the fourth period, including a left-handed layup off an offensive rebound with 3:42 left to tie the game at 75. After Taj Gibson missed a jumper with 25 seconds left, Walker had a chance to win the game but missed an open step-back jumper from 18 feet at the buzzer. "I had a great look at it," Walker said. "Just missed it." Walkers big overtime helped the Bobcats improve to 20-9 since the All-Star break. "The guys have done a great job," Bobcats coach Steve Clifford said. "We wont think about it right now, but when we reflect back on the year we will. We didnt have a definitive number because I didnt know how good we could be. Its a good group and hopefully we have a lot more in us. It was good to see the locker room tonight. Theyve worked hard. Theyve been grinding from the jump." NOTES: Jefferson was taken to the locker room for observations with a left knee contusion midway through the third quarter. He did return to the game and played the entire fourth quarter. ... With the win, the Bobcats avoided a season series sweep by the Bulls.
