Antonio 111-100 on Saturday night

  • December 15, 2018
    Toronto, ON (SportsNetwork. [b]Wholesale Air Max Australia[/b] .com) - DeMar DeRozan registered 25 points with six rebounds to lead the Toronto Raptors in a 114-110 win over the Detroit Pistons on Sunday night. Jonas Valanciunas went for 20 points and 11 rebounds in the win, while Amir Johnson added 17 points for the Raptors. D.J. Augustins career night was all for naught as he made the start for the injured Brandon Jennings. Detroit announced earlier in the day that Jennings would miss the remainder of the season with a ruptured left Achilles tendon that he suffered during Saturdays game against Milwaukee. Augustin set a career high with 35 points and also dished out eight assists for the Pistons, who have lost three straight on the road. Greg Monroe finished with 21 points and 16 rebounds in the loss. Our defense is terrible, Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said. It really is, its terrible. Toronto led by five in the latter stages of the third when it went on a 10-2 run that Valanciunas capped with a layup from Kyle Lowry for an 85-72 lead. Detroit managed to close within 10 entering the final quarter, and it cut the deficit to 89-83 with the first four points of the fourth. The Pistons hung around later in the quarter and did not allow Toronto to run away with the game. Kentavious Caldwell-Popes dunk with just over two minutes left cut Detroits deficit to 103-99. DeRozan kept the Raptors in front, however, converting a pair of free throws prior to making a jumper that made it an eight-point game with 1:23 left. Detroit continued its persistency as Caldwell-Pope buried a 3 before Augustin went to the line for two free throws. Johnson responded with a pair of free throws to keep the hosts ahead 109-104 with 38.7 seconds left. Lowry committed a boneheaded foul on Caldwell-Pope with 15.1 seconds left. Caldwell-Pope knocked down an open 3, Lowry fouled him from behind and the former hit a free throw to complete the four-point play to make it a two- point game. Following a pair of makes at the line from Terrence Ross, Caldwell-Pope missed two 3-pointers at the other end and the Raptors held on. I was really pleased with our offensive production, Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. Were having our ups and downs. We just have to continue to improve in a lot of areas. Augustin scored seven points during an 11-2 run that tied the game at 20-20 late in the first quarter. The Raptors led 26-25 after 12 minutes. The game remained close until Lowry nailed a 3-pointer that kicked off a 9-3 burst over the final 2;19 of the second and helped Toronto to a 58-53 lead at halftime.

George scored 28 points and Indiana defeated San Antonio 111-100 on Saturday night, snapping an 11-game skid against the Spurs. [b]Air Max Wholesale[/b] . The international synchronized skating competition takes place from January 31 - February 1, 2014, and features 39 teams from 10 countries, in senior, junior, and novice.CHICAGO -- This time, Niklas Backstrom made it through warm-ups without any injuries. It was the start of one nice night for the goalie and the Minnesota Wild. Backstrom made 33 saves in his first win of the season and the Wild defeated the Chicago Blackhawks 5-3 on Saturday in a rematch of their first-round playoff series. "I think I just play every game the same," Backstrom said. "You try to go out there and play your best. Be at your best for your team and your teammates when they need you. I think thats the way Im looking at it." But this one was quite a turnaround from the playoffs, when Backstrom was scratched from Game 1 in Chicago after he hurt his leg reaching for a puck during warm-ups. That was it for Backstrom for the series, and Chicago eliminated Minnesota in five games on the way to its second Stanley Cup title in four seasons. "Its a new season, its a new team," said Backstrom, dismissing any talk about the post-season meeting. "So theres no reason to sit around, we try to learn this year." Jason Pominville had two goals in his 600th career game as Minnesota earned its third consecutive win. Zach Parise, Kyle Brodziak and Justin Fontaine also scored for the Wild, and Ryan Suter and Mikael Granlund had two assists apiece. Bryan Bickell scored for the fourth consecutive game for the Blackhawks, who had recorded at least one point in each of their past seven games. Patrick Kane added his team-best sixth goal in the third period. "Its nice scoring, but most importantly, its nice to score when youre winning," Bickell said. "Tonight was a rough game for the team, defensively and offensively." Chicago committed five of the 12 penalties in the game and went 1 for 7 on the power play. It has allowed 11 goals in the past two games. "Its two games in a row we gave up five goals and more," captain Jonathan Toews said. "Its one thing that people are talking about us not scoring as much, but sometimes you dont need to score than many to win if youre playing smart defensively." Backstrom was terrific in his first start since he strained his right knee during a 3-2 loss at Nashville on Oct. 8. He came off the bench when Josh Harding suffered a lower-body injury Thursday night and stopped all seven shots that he faced during tthe third period of a 3-1 home win against Carolina.

The 35-year-old Backstrom was particularly hard on Patrick Sharp, turning him away on one strong rush in the first, and making another nice stop on the forward during a Blackhawks power play in the second. He also made a couple of saves on Marian Hossa. "He made some big saves, especially in the second when they started making a pretty good push," Brodziak said. "He did an unbelievable job and that gave us a good opportunity to be able to extend the lead." Parise had a power-play rebound goal in the first and Brodziak made it 2-0 when he tipped Marco Scandellas long shot past Corey Crawford just 63 seconds into the second period. The Blackhawks looked as if they had their first score when Jeremy Morins shot went off Backstroms left shoulder, popped into the air and trickled over the line following a scrum in front of the net. But the goal was waived off when a long replay review showed Andrew Shaw made contact with the puck with his stick while it was over the crossbar. Bickells wrist shot through Backstroms legs cut it to 2-1 at 13:46, but Granlund set up Pominville with 2:18 to go in the period. Granlund then turned Nick Leddys turnover into another Pominville goal at 9:18 of the third, giving Minnesota a 4-1 lead. "There have been chances and they havent gone in and you know its just a matter for time before theyre going to go in," Wild coach Mike Yeo said, praising the Granlund-Pominville connection. "When youve got a guy who can shoot the puck like that and a guy who can distribute it like that, you sure like to think its going to eventually pay off, and tonight was a great example of that." Marcus Kruger scored his first goal of the season with 30 seconds left, but that was it for the Blackhawks in their second straight loss. Crawford finished with 20 saves.
