Orlando ahead for
« le: 11 février 2019, 08:12:08 »
The Toronto Raptors will honour Nelson Mandela on the first anniversary of his passing tonight when LeBron James and the much-improved Cleveland Cavaliers pay a visit to the Air Canada Centre. The Giant of Africa presented by Bell will be an evening-long celebration of the late former South African President and Nobel Peace Prize winner while supporting the Nelson Mandela Foundation and general manager Masai Ujiri non-for-profit organization, Giants of Africa. Watch the panel discussion, moderated by TSNs James Duthie and co-founder of Face 2 Face Africa, Sandra Appiah, live on TSN.ca at 6pm et/3pm pt. Check out more details of the event here. Toronto handed Cleveland its last loss, a 110-93 drubbing at Quicken Loans Arena on Nov. 22. You can watch the game live on TSN1, TSN4 and TSN5 at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt. Since that win over the Cavs, the Raptors are 4-2, including a 2-1 western road trip. However, Toronto lost All-Star DeMar DeRozan to a torn tendon in his groin. The Raptors made due without him on Wednesday night with a 123-104 rout of the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City. Toronto ambushed the Jazz with 69 points in the first half. Kyle Lowry scored a career-high 39 points to lead Toronto. Lowry was 13-of-22 from the field and hit four shots from beyond the arc. Lowry finished strong with 15 of Torontos 26 points in the final period. Toronto as a team shot 57 percent from the field and made 12-of-21 3-point attempts. In addition, Toronto sank 21-of-24 free throws, led by Lowry hitting all nine of his attempts. With less than a minute left, he sunk three from the charity stripe after being fouled attempting a 3-pointer. Im just going out there and doing my job. I know I need to score a little bit more and be a little more aggressive. I can do it with DeMar (DeRozan), said Lowry. But as a point guard, I like to get my teammates involved. Right now I need to be a little more assertive. Lou Williams and Greivis Vasquez each scored 17 for Toronto. Patrick Patterson and Amir Johnson finished with 13 and Terrence Ross added 11. The Raptors have won four of five against the Cavaliers and two in a row at home in this series. Toronto owns the best home record in the Eastern Conference at 9-2. The Cavaliers have won a season-high five in a row and this run came after a four-game losing streak. Most buried the Cavs after that skid, but Cleveland swept a four-game homestand, then knocked off the New York Knicks, 90-87, Thursday night at Madison Square Garden. James wasnt the star on Thursday. That honor belonged to fellow All-Star and Big Three member, Kyrie Irving. His season-high 37 points and two timely James baskets helped the Cavaliers avenge an opening-night loss to the Knicks. The Cavaliers trailed for most of the second half, but James scored five straight points late in the fourth to put them back in front. Irvings lefty scoop layup over two defenders with 10 seconds left made it 90-87. The Knicks went to a Carmelo Anthony isolation on the games final possession. Anthony shook James and shot a 3 from the right wing, but it was just off the mark. Iman Shumpert tipped the rebound out to Jose Calderon, who hit a 3 a full second after the final buzzer. Irving hit 12-of-18 from the floor and made 10 of his 11 free throw attempts for Cleveland. James gave 19 points and 12 assists, and Kevin Love posted 11 points and 11 boards. (LeBron) did a heck of a job finding me, Irving said. Everybody kept feeding me. I felt like I was in a great rhythm tonight. The Cavs held the Knicks to 14 fourth-quarter points, limited star Carmelo Anthony to nine points on 4-for-19 shooting, and forced 22 New York turnovers. Ryan Jensen Buccaneers Jersey . Marcus Olsson, 23, joins Blackburn on a free transfer from Swedens Halmstads. He made 139 appearances and scored 17 goals in his four years with the club.

A groundswell for raising the number of playoff qualifiers to seven in each conference figures to get plenty of support from the 32 owners. Most notably, Arizonas Bill Bidwill, who saw his Cardinals go 10-6 and not get in, while Green Bay (8-7-1) qualified by winning the NFC North. M.J. Stewart Jersey . Lupul injured the hand in a fall at practice on Thursday. He will wear a cast for a minimum of 10 days before he can put a glove back on it and get some mobility back, said Carlyle, who added the winger wont go on the teams upcoming road trip. Vinny Curry Buccaneers Jersey . Phoenix got injured centre Emeka Okafor and a top-12-protected first-round draft pick in 2014 -- giving the rebuilding Suns potentially four choices in the opening round. The Suns also sent guards Kendall Marshall, Shannon Brown and Malcolm Lee to Washington so the deal will work financially.ORLANDO, Fla. -- A big early deficit and an opponents hot shooting hand didnt faze Nikola Vucevic or the rest of the Orlando Magic. Vucevic scored 24 points and grabbed 23 rebounds, and Jameer Nelson had five points in overtime as the Magic edged the Charlotte Bobcats 110-105 on Friday night. Aaron Afflalo, who finished with 17 points, sent the game into overtime with a 3-pointer with 7.6 seconds remaining as Orlando won its second straight. In overtime, Nelsons 3-pointer with 2:26 left put Orlando ahead for good. "I knew it would turn around," Vucevic said. "I kept my confidence high. I had all good looks," said Vucevic, who was 11-for 22 from the field. "A 15-16 point lead in this league is nothing. You have to keep fighting, grinding and thats what we did tonight." Vucevic, who recorded his fifth career game with 20 points and 20 rebounds, keyed a dominant rebounding effort (57-36) by Orlando. His first-half total of 16 matched Charlottes team total through two quarters. Orlando, which trailed during the first 44 minutes, took a 94-93 lead on an Afflalos free throw with 1:12 left. But Josh McRoberts, who had a career-high 24 points, drove the lane to put Charlotte ahead. Kemba Walker then hit a fadeaway jumper with 14.6 seconds left to put the Bobcats up three -- setting up Afflalos tying 3. "It was great fight by all of the guys," Orlando coach Jacque Vaughn said. "Whether it was the unit that started the fourth quarter and really got us going defensively to put up a 16-point quarter versus a team like that or the mental fight of Nik Vucevic, who starts out the game 4-for-14 and doesnt give in and wills his way and helps his team. Pretty impressive in a lot of different ways." The Bobcats looked as though they had escaped after Walkers final basket in regulation, but a defensive lapse gave Afflalo a look, and the game went to overtime. "All youve got to do is do what were supposed to do right there and the game ends. That was it," Charlotte coach Steve Clifford said. "We have to make one play that you make time after time and we didnt make the play.&quuot; Tobias Harris had 15 points for the Magic, while Victor Oladipo added 14 and Kyle OQuinn 13.ddddddddddddNelson, who missed the last four games with a sore knee, had 11. Walker matched McRoberts with 24 points for Charlotte, while Al Jefferson scored 20. Gerald Henderson added 14 and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist 10. "That was our biggest emphasis coming in: to get to the glass and be physical," Clifford said. "We werent willing to do that to start the game and thats what kept them (Orlando) in the game. I want to see a recommitment to the way we were defending and rebounding early in the year consistently. Were sporadic now." Orlando pulled to within one point twice in the third quarter, the last when OQuinns layup made it 59-58 with 7:17 remaining. Charlotte answered as McRoberts drained back-to-back 3-pointers and scored eight points during a 16-6 run that pushed the Bobcats lead back to double-digits at 75-64. Charlotte took an 81-74 lead into the fourth quarter. McRoberts, whose six 3-pointers were a career high, was often left unchallenged from 3-point range and took full advantage. He was 4-for-6 from behind the arc for all 12 of his first-half points as the Bobcats took a 50-41 halftime lead. Charlotte scored the games first five points and hit nine of its first 11 shots to take a 22-10 advantage on Kidd-Gilchrists dunk with 6:52 remaining. The Bobcats led by as many as 16 in the opening quarter. Orlando used 11 rebounds from Vucevic and eight points off the bench from Harris in the second quarter to get as close as 43-39 with 1:31 remaining in the second quarter. Charlotte then scored the next six points and finished the half on a 7-2 run to take a nine-point halftime lead. NOTES: The loss sent Charlotte 2 1/2 games behind Washington for the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference. ... This was only the third time since January that Charlotte lost to a team with a losing record. ... This was Orlandos 1,000th regular-season victory. ... Nelson also had eight assists and four rebounds in 32 minutes. ... The Magic went to the free-throw line 35 times, compared to Charlottes 14.
