DENVER - James Harden couldnt quite fight his way through traffic and just barely missed getting his hand in the face of Arron Afflalo as the Nuggets swingman knocked down a buzzer-beating 3-pointer to end regulation.No big deal, though. Harden more than atoned in overtime.Harden scored eight of his 41 points in the extra period, and the Houston Rockets beat Denver 115-111 on Wednesday night after Afflalos late theatrics sent the crowd into a frenzy.Just Harden being Harden.When hes in attack mode, nobody can guard him, Dwight Howard said. He played amazing. Hit some tough shots.Harden was far from alone. Patrick Beverley sealed Houstons seventh win in eight games by hitting four straight free throws in the final 17.8 seconds.This team doesnt give up. Were resilient, said Harden, who was 18 of 21 at the free throw line and had 10 assists. Weve been that way all year.Howard had 24 points and 16 rebounds despite a strained right knee that had him questionable for the game.Wilson Chandler scored 23 points and Ty Lawson dished out 16 assists for the struggling Nuggets, whove dropped seven of their last eight.We didnt win the game, but I commend our guys, Nuggets coach Brian Shaw said. Im proud of the guys and the way they played, so these kinds of losses, I can stomach a little bit better.After sending the game to OT, Afflalo had a chance to come up big again with 24 seconds remaining and his team trailing 109-107, but he hit just one of two free throws. He later knocked down a 3-pointer to keep the Nuggets close, only to have Beverley drain two free throws.Heck of a game, said Rockets coach Kevin McHale, whose team trailed by as many as 16 points in the first half. Our guys just kept battling away.Hardens 3-pointer with 10.4 seconds left in regulation gave the Rockets a 98-96 lead. He then stole a pass from Kenneth Faried and was immediately fouled, sending him to the line with a chance to wrap up the win. But Harden made just one of two free throws, giving the Nuggets time for one last chance.Lawson dribbled up the floor and scooped it over to Afflalo, who made a deep 3-pointer at the buzzer with Harden nearly in his face to tie it at 99.Its basketball. People are going to hit tough shots, Howard said. Luckily, we had a chance to redeem ourselves and get a win.Houston beat Denver last Saturday, with Harden recording a triple-double — 24 points, 10 rebound and 10 assists.He torched the Nuggets for three quarters Wednesday, but was held quiet in the fourth until his late 3-pointer, his only one of the game.Jason Terry didnt make the trip to Denver. Instead, he headed for Dallas to be with his wife, who is expecting the couples fifth child.Faried (strained ankle) and Danilo Gallinari (bruised knee) were back on the floor after being hobbled by ailments. They also were energized after conversations with Shaw. Both players voiced their frustration over their recent roles and Shaw listened.They responded, too, as Faried had 11 points and 11 boards, while Gallinari scored 16 points.It was definitely a good game for me, but we didnt win, Gallinari said. Im not happy, but onto the next one.TIP-INSRockets: Francisco Garcia (calf, strained Achilles) and Terrence Jones (left leg nerve inflammation) didnt play. ... McHale has become a mentor for Shaw, with the two talking every so often about their two favourite subjects — hoops and fishing. I wish him all the luck in the world, except when were playing him, McHale said.Nuggets: Of his meetings with Faried and Gallinari over their roles, Shaw said, We tried to find a common ground and go from there. ... The Nuggets have played more overtime games against Houston (14) than any other team.BULLIED AROUNDHoward ate up Timofey Mozgov, Faried and J.J. Hickson on the inside, but struggled when rookie Jusuf Nurkic covered him. Nurkic outweighs Howard by 15 pounds and bumped him around. Nurkic picked up his fifth foul early in the fourth quarter and had to sit on the bench.UP NEXTRockets: Host New Orleans on Thursday.Nuggets: Host the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday. Kyle Wright Jersey . That little deal worked out in a big way for the Mavericks. Nowitzki had 21 points Tuesday night to pass Oscar Robertson for 10th on the NBAs career scoring list, leading the Mavs to a 95-83 victory over the Utah Jazz. Dusty Baker Jersey . The pair ended pointless droughts when they each scored two goals in a 6-4 victory over the Winnipeg Jets that halted a two-game losing skid for the Stars (15-11-5). http://www.custombravesjersey.com/custom...1527z.html .com) - James Harden put the Houston Rockets on his back and willed them to an overtime victory on Thursday.

So far, so good: Gonzalez has allowed one run through 12 innings this season. His second start came Tuesday night, when he gave up only three singles over six innings to lead the Nationals to a 5-0 victory over the Miami Marlins.Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - Atlanta Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez will return for a fifth season in 2015. Gonzalezs job status had come into question when general manager Frank Wren was fired in late September after the Braves had been officially eliminated from playoff contention with a late-season swoon. Interim general manager John Hart made the decision to keep Gonzalez on Friday. The Braves were tied for first place at the All-Star break and still in the hunt for a wild-card berth heading into the final month, but a 7-18 mark in September left them with a disappointing record of 79-83. Gonzalez is under contract through the 2015 campaign. He has a record of 358-290 with a pair of playoff appearances in four seasons since replacing Bobby Cox in the Atlanta dugout. The Braves lost in the wild-card game after the 2012 season and last year won the National League East before falling in the Division Series.dddddddddddd Gonzalez previously managed the Marlins from 2007-10 and has a career managerial record of 634-569 in eight seasons. The Braves on Friday also named former Astros manager Bo Porter as the teams third base coach. Porter was fired on Sept. 1 in his second season as Houstons skipper. He was the third base coach under Gonzalez with the Marlins. Porter will replace Doug Dascenzo as third base coach. Assistant hitting coach Scott Fletcher will also not return. Hitting coach Greg Walker had previously announced his resignation after the season. The remainder of the Braves staff, including pitching coach Roger McDowell, bench coach Carlos Tosca, first base coach Terry Pendleton and bullpen coach Eddie Perez, will return for 2015. ' ' '

ST. CATHARINES, Ont. - Curtis Lazar is leaving the Ottawa Senators to play for Canada at the world junior championship, a decision those involved consider a win-win.The 19-year-old Lazar gets the experience of playing against the best junior players in the world, Canada gets a polished top-six forward and the Senators hope to benefit down the road from the development their top prospect gets from his second of these tournaments.Hes going to play a more prominent role, Senators coach Dave Cameron said. With us hes in the bottom six, playing a safe role. There hes going to be a go-to guy. Thats a real world-class tournament on a huge stage, so all those factors are going to make him a better player.Lazar was Ottawas fourth-line centre averaging 12:45 a game, second-lowest on the team ahead of only Chris Neil. Wednesday night at the New Jersey Devils, Lazar skated 15 shifts for 8:30, his lowest totals of his rookie season.Hockey Canada had discussions with the Senators this week about getting Lazar, but the organization didnt find out until Thursday morning that hed be joining the world junior team. Understandably, those in charge of the team are thrilled to add Lazar to a group already favoured to win gold on home ice.He is a big piece of the puzzle, said Scott Salmond, Hockey Canadas vice-president of hockey operations. He will come in here, hopefully with a lot of confidence and a lot of experience of having been here last year. We expect him to be a leader, and we expect he is going to give our group a boost.Lazar called it bittersweet leaving the Senators in the middle of the season, especially considering the upheaval lately with the firing of Paul MacLean and the hiring of Cameron as coach. But he relishes the idea of becoming that go-to-guy at the world juniors.The Ottawa Senators, Im happy to be here, I love to be here and I feel Im going to have a long, healthy career here with them, said Lazar, who has a goal and six assists this season. Two weeks its not going to make that much of a difference.Having Lazar could make a huge difference for Canada, which already had six returning players: goaltender Zach Fucale, defenceman Josh Morrissey and forwards Sam Reinhart, Connor McDavid, Nic Petan and Frederik Gauthier. Lazar could slide in on Canadas second line on one of McDavids wings, something he said would be a lot of fun.Salmond said it was up to coach Benoit Groulx whether Lazar would play wing, as he did in 2014, or line up at centre.I see him, imagine him, playing a lot, Salmond said.Thats part of the reason Cameron, who has a history of coaching with Hockey Canada, supported letting Lazar go. Ultimately, the decision rested with Senators general manager Bryan Murray, but he got input from Lazar and Cameron along the way.Lazars teammates saw last year what he can bring to a tournament like this when he was a point-a-game performer.Curtis brings everything, really, Morrissey said. He is an all-around player, he brings a lot to our team on the ice with his skills and ability, but off the ice he brings tremendous leadership. He is a hard-working, honest guy.Before he even skates with this group, Lazar becomes a top candidate along with Reinhart to be named captain. At the very least, the Salmon Arm, B.C., native will be part of Canadas leadership group because hes constantly smiling and can lighten the mood.He always brings down the pressure, McDavid said. Hes obviously going to be a huge leader, if not the biggest leader on this team.Groulx, an assistant last year in Malmo, Sweden, has only good things to say about Lazar on and off the ice.Hes well-liked by his teammates, respected by his teammates, Groulx said. Hes won everywhere. Hes a competitor, everybody acknowledges that. Hes such a great young man. I think hell fit right in with our guys.The downside of Lazars addition will be felt by the one extra player who has spent the week at Canadas camp at Meridian Centre in St. Catharines but wont be starting the tournament with the rest of the group Dec. 26 in Montreal. Now three forwards will need to get cut, along with a defenceman, to get down to the 22-man roster.Thats part of the process, Groulx said. Having Curtis back, obviously I think it puts a smile on everybodys face on this team. Yeah, its going to make our decision tougher, but I think its good for our team to have him back.Five forwards appear to be on the bubble of making the team: Gauthier, Michael Dal Colle, Jason Dickinson, Rourke Chartier and 17-year-old Lawson Crouse. Though Gauthier is a returning player, the Toronto Maple Leafs prospect doesnt consider his spot safe.I think I need to earn it, Gauthier said. I dont think I got it right now.Dickinson, who centred the fifth line this week, understands he has to show his value Friday night in Canadas exhibition game against Russia at Air Canada Centre in Toronto. He isnt worried about the Lazar news affecting him mentally.It is one of those things that happens in hockey, Dickinson said. There are going to be guys out there and take your spot, and you just have to battle through it.Theres little doubt that Canada is a better team with Lazar than without. Hes the second full-time NHL player to join after the New York Rangers released Anthony Duclair to play.It obviously makes us a lot deeper, McDavid said of adding Lazar. Theres so many good players throughout this country at this age. Obviously hes one of the best. Hes going to help all around.Lazar will meet up with the team in Toronto but wont play in Fridays exhibition game. Hes hoping to put on a show for the Sens fans Sunday when Canada plays Sweden in an exhibition game at Canadian Tire Centre.Obviously the long-term goal is the games that matter and Lazar trying to help Canada win its first world junior gold medal since 2009.Were on home soil here and the expectation is for us to win gold, Lazar said. My junior resume, its pretty complete except for a medal at the world juniors. Its a big opportunity here and I like the team that they have in place so far and Im going to go and contribute and hopefully I can check that one off the list.With files from Lisa Wallace in Ottawa---Follow @SWhyno on TwitterNote to readers: This is a corrected story.

LONDON -- England was forced into a late change for the Six Nations match against Italy on Saturday, with prop Joe Marler dropping out to be with his partner ahead of the birth of their first child. Mako Vunipola was promoted from the reserves, with Matt Mullan called up to the bench on Thursday. "It is important that Joe is with his partner at this exciting time," England coach Stuart Lancaster said. "Family must always come first." The other change to the matchday squad of 23 saw centre Manu Tuilagi named on the bench in place of Alex Goode after recovering from a pectoral muscle injury that kept him out for six months. He is expected to make his first England appearance in a year in Rome. The English still have a chance to win the Six Nations if they defeat Italy and France beat Ireland. However, they must also overhaul Irelands points superiority should the Irish win in Paris. Tuilagis return was widely expected after England coaches even considered including him in their squad for the crunch game against Wales until Lancaster decided it would be safer to wait one more week. England hopes Tuilagis power will be a decisive factor in Rome as Lancasters team hopes to pile on the points. "The Wales result was very significant for us but we need to finish the tournament well in Rome," Lancaster said. "We have had a tight turnaround and the key this week has been to manage the players recovery and get them in the best shape for what will be a tough match against Italy." ------ England: Mike Brown, Jack Nowell, Luther Burrell, Billy Twelvetrees, Jonny May, Owen Farrell, Danny Care; Ben Morgan, Chris Robshaw (captain), Tom Wood, Courtney Lawes, Joe Launchbury, David Wilson, Dylan Hartley, Mako Vunipola.

Wingers Watisoni Votu and Sireli Bobo both scored two tries and backrower and captain Akapusi Qera scored another as Fiji piled on six tries to two in a comprehensive performance. Fiji opened the match at a rapid pace with a penalty to Nadolo, then tries to Votu and Nadolo, both converted, to lead 17-0 after only 14 minutes. Though the play of both sides was affected by handling errors, often the product of jarring tackles, Fiji managed to score at more than a point per minute. Tonga finally got onto the board with a penalty to Fangatapu Apikotoa in the 22nd minute and managed to find some defensive steel before Bobo added Fijis third try nine minutes from halftime. Votu scored his second in the 12th minute of the second half to give Fijii a commanding 31-3 lead and a blowout seemed likely until Viliami Fihaki came off the bench to score tries for Tonga in the 24th and 26th minutes of the second half.dddddddddddd Both were converted by Latiume Fosita, cutting the deficit to 31-17. Fiji seemed in danger of letting its control of the match slip but it recovered its composure to finish with tries to Bobo and Qera in the 79th and 81st minutes. Nadolo supplemented his try with six conversions and a penalty. Fiji joined Japan as a first-round winner after Japans 34-25 win last weekend over Canada. Tonga drew 18-18 win Samoa in its opening match and the United States is due to host Japan later Saturday. ---------- Fiji 45 (Watisoni Votu 2, Sireli Bobo 2, Nemani Nadolo, Akapusi Qera tries; Nemani Nadolo 6 conversions, penalty), Tonga 17 (Viliami Fihaki 2 tries; Latiume Fosita 2 conversions; Fangatapu Apikotoa penalty).

TORONTO -- After missing over three weeks with an infected left foot, Peter Holland finally feels like hes getting back to game shape. Holland setup two goals, including the game winner, as the Toronto Marlies extended their win streak to four games with a 4-2 win over the Binghamton Senators in American Hockey League action Wednesday. It was Hollands first two assists since he was re-assigned to the Marlies by the Maple Leafs last Saturday. "Obviously with a month off there, not playing or practising was pretty tough," said Holland. "Getting back in the first game, timing was a little off, I felt a little better today, in the second one. "(The foot) was very infected and I was in the hospital for about four or five days in a row having an IV and antibiotics. (I was) on crutches for a couple days." Mike Duco scored the winner, giving the Marlies a 3-1 lead at 7:18 of the second by putting a rebound off a Holland shot past Nathan Lawson while crashing into the Senators goalie. "I knew (Duco) was driving the net, the goalie looked like he was cheating over a little bit to the short side, I didnt know if my shot was maybe going to beat him," said Holland of the play. "But I knew Duco was going to be there if he kicked out the rebound." Josh Leivo added an empty netter with 14 seconds remaining in the third. Jerry DAmigo and Kenny Ryan had the other goals for the Marlies (32-17-4). Matt Puempel and Mark Stone scored for the Senators (33-17-4). Drew MacIntyre made 34 saves for his 24th win of the season while Lawson made 26 saves in the loss. After Ryan opened the scoring late in the first, the two teams combined for four second-period goals. DAmigo gave Toronto a 2-0 lead 46 seconds in on a power play, beating Lawson blocker-side from the faceoff dot for his 15th of the season. DAmigo now has eight goals and three assists in nine games this month. The Senators got on the board 33 seconds later as Puempel one-timed a Stone feed past MacIntyre for his 20th of the season. After Duco gave the Marlies a 3-1 lead, Binghamton pulled to within one before the second was over as Stone tapped in a Puempel feed on a two-man advantage for his 13th of the season. "We took some penalties that were uncharacteristic of us," said Marlies head coach Steve Spott. "The No. 1 criteria or No. 1 goal on our board today was not to take penalties against this team and we did. We paid for it. We allowed them to stay around." Ryan opened the scoring with 14 seconds remaining in the first taking a feed from DAmigo and beating Lawson glove-side for his third of the season. Ryan now has a goal and three assists in two games. The second, and final meeting, between the two teams goes April 16 in Binghamton. Following the game, Spott had a lengthy meeting with the Maple Leafs brass, including General Manager, Dave Nonis. With Dave Bolland potentially nearing a return to the Leafs lineup, Spott is expecting bodies to fall to his club. "It depends, theyre going to have some roster spots that are going to have to open up," Spott said. "David Bolland seems to be coming back in the near future. Hopefully that will have some sort of an affect with the Marlies. Well have to see how that all plays out." Notes: Toronto goalie Christopher Gibson (back) and forward Sam Carrick (upper body) both received medical clearance and will be available to the team Saturday when the Marlies host the Hamilton Bulldogs. If Gibson returns, Garret Sparks will likely be reassigned to the ECHL.

OTTAWA -- Suddenly the Philadelphia Flyers look like a contender. The Flyers won their second straight game with a 5-0 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday. This is a sharp contrast to Philadelphias start to the season, when it scored more than two goals in a game only once, winning just four times in its first 15 games. Jakub Voracek scored twice and Steve Mason made 24 saves as the Flyers won consecutive games for just the second time this season. "We got back to the basics," said Matt Read, who had the Flyers first goal Tuesday. "The first month we tried to do things when we didnt have them and now were just keeping things simple by getting pucks deep and getting pucks out when we have to and winning puck battles along the boards. "Those little things turn into victories." Vincent Lecavalier and Brayden Schenn also scored for the Flyers (6-10-1), while Claude Giroux added two assists. It was Masons first shutout of the season and the 20th of his career. "This was an extremely sound effort all around and from a defensive standpoint we didnt give a lot up," Mason said. Craig Anderson stopped 26 of 31 shots in his first start in over a week after suffering a neck injury in a loss to Dallas on Nov. 9. The Senators (7-7-4) were shutout for the first time this season and had a three-game winning streak snapped in the loss. Robin Lehner started and won all three games in Andersons absence and was named the NHLs first star of the week last week. When Senators coach Paul MacLean was questioned as to whether he was disappointed with his teams effort, he responded by saying he thinks the whole city is disappointed. "We had been playing well and we got exposed by a team that was a little more desperate than we were," said MacLean, who faced some criticism for starting Anderson rather than the hot hand in Lehner. "There are only 20 guys from Philadelphia that are happy with their game. I dont think theres anyone on our team that should be happy with their game and Craig is no different than the rest of us. There were 20 guys that went out there and 20 guys that didnt get the job done." The Flyers led 3-0 after the second intermission and got goals from Lecavalier and Schenn to put the finishing touches on an embarrassing night for Ottawa. There was very little flow through most of the first period, further evidence that both clubs are enduring early-season struggles. "I dont think we had much jump and it started early. We werent handling pucks and we kept it along the walls a lot which kind of slows things down and makes it tough to create momentum," said Senators forward Zack Smith. "There were a couple of giveaways in the defensive end that cost us, but you lose 5-0 and you cant say the effort was there." The Flyers opened the scoring late in the first period when Read collected a puck behind the Senators net and scored on a wraparound. His attempt actually hit the far goalpost but then found the back of Andersons leg and was redirected across the goal-line. That 1-0 lead was quickly doubled in the second period as Voracek scored his first of the game 28 seconds into the period. Voracek was behind the goal when he took a pass from Scott Hartnell and quickly reached around, beating Anderson to the post for his second goal of the season. A touch more than 10 minutes later, Voracek gave the Flyers a 3-0 lead as he collected a rebound and put a shot over an outstretched Anderson with 30 seconds still remaining in an interference penalty to Senators defenceman Mark Borowiecki. The Flyers nearly took a 4-0 lead on some nifty passing between Voracek, Hartnell and Giroux, but Anderson made a diving save with the handle of his stick as time expired in the period. Notes - Senators forward Erik Condra missed his fifth straight game Tuesday night with a muscle strain in his right leg. Forward Steve Downie played his second game of the season with the Flyers and first after missing four straight with a concussion. Claude Giroux collected his 300th NHL point, all with the Flyers, with his first of two second-period assists Tuesday. Chris Phillips and Eric Gryba were scratches for the Senators while Michael Raffl, Andrej Meszaros and Hal Gill sat for the Flyers Andrew Miller . -- Blake Griffin scored 32 points and grabbed eight rebounds, DeAndre Jordan had 14 points and 22 rebounds and the Los Angeles Clippers outlasted the Golden State Warriors 98-96 on Thursday night to take a 2-1 lead in their first-round series.

After beginning the season 4-3, allowing 100.9 points on 47 per cent shooting, Miamis resurgent defence has vaulted them back to the top of a weak Eastern Conference.ARLINGTON, Texas - Kendrys Morales slapped a line drive away from the Texas shift, landing it just inside the foul line in left field where the only person close to it was a security guard scrambling to get out of the way. A deft leap from the guard kept the ball in play and sent the Twins on their way to ending a 10-game road losing streak. Morales tiebreaking double in the top of the ninth off Texas closer Joakim Soria brought in pinch-runner Sam Fuld from first base in a 3-2 Minnesota victory Sunday. After the security guard dodged the ball with his right foot, the carom off a brick wall just missed his left foot as the ball rolled into shallow left field, a long way from Texas Michael Choice. A ground-rule double would have forced Fuld to stop at third instead of scoring easily, and Soria (1-3) struck out the final two hitters of the inning. "We got a couple of breaks, and we won the ballgame," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. Kyle Gibson (7-6) matched a career high by going eight innings and scattering eight hits. Glen Perkins struck out the side in the ninth for his 20th save in 23 chances. Robinson Chirinos had three hits for Texas, including his seventh homer of the season in the fifth inning for a 2-2 tie. Josh Willinghams second hit got the winning rally started with one out in the ninth before he was replaced by Fuld. The Twins had lost the first five games on a six-game road trip after winning four straight on a brief homestand. "It was a big game for us after a tough road trip," said Gibson, who had a 22-inning scoreless streak snapped when he allowed seven runs in just two innings to start the trip at the Los Angeles Angels. "All I did was try to give my team a chance to win and turn things around." Jorge Polanco, making his first major league start for Minnesota, had a tying double on a check-swing roller over the bag at third base in the third inning. The 20-year-old shortstop scored for a 2-1 lead on a single by Joe Mauer, who extended his hiitting streak to a season-high 10 games.dddddddddddd "They did what they had to do to win the game," Rangers manager Ron Washington said. "We didnt. Even if it was check swings and all that stuff, thats baseball. You cant control what happens sometimes." Polanco also had a strong day defensively, helping turn three double plays and taking a hit way from Elvis Andrus on a one-hop smash to his left in the eighth inning. "The kid played great at shortstop," Gardenhire said. "He has good at-bats. Hes got things to learn, but hes doing just fine." The Rangers had runners at first and third with nobody out in the second and again with one out in the seventh but didnt score either time. Choice struck out ahead of Rougned Odors double-play grounder in the second, and Choice grounded into a double play to end the seventh. Texas right-hander Colby Lewis ended a streak of 13 straight starts without a quality start of at least six innings and three earned runs or fewer, which was tied for the major league record with Seattles Steve Trout from 1988. He gave up two runs in six innings and struck out eight. Lewis left in a 2-2 tie, remaining winless in seven career starts against the Twins. It was the second rough outing of the three-game series for Soria. He gave up four runs in the ninth inning of Texas 5-4 victory on Friday. The injury-riddled Rangers (37-44) hit the halfway mark of the season with their fewest wins since 2007 and are 14 games behind Oakland in the AL West. "Were just in a situation right now where weve got guys hurt and were going to go out there and compete," Lewis said. "Thats all Wash asks us to do." NOTES: Chris Parmelees single in the sixth inning gave him a career-best nine-game hitting streak. ... The Rangers won a home series for the first time since mid-April. They had gone winless in 10 straight series at home. ... Polanco is the first Minnesota player to start his career with two extra-base hits since Rich Becker in 1993. ' ' '

Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Bryan Little had the lone shootout goal to boost the Winnipeg Jets to a wild 5-4 victory over the Los Angeles Kings at Staples Center. The Jets scored three goals on their first three shots of the night, all within the first 6:39 of the contest, but couldnt sustain the lead, yet snapped a two-game skid. That was a game you like to be a part of, especially the first period, Jets coach Paul Maurice said. Im not just talking about the score; the physicality of it, the intensity, and lots of big hits going both ways. It was fun. Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick made an incredible sprawling save, falling backward with his left hand stopping a shot from Mathieu Perreault in the second round of the shootout. In the fourth round, Littles wrist shot found the right side of the net. Mike Richards missed the net on his attempt to extend the shootout. Little also scored in regulation, as did Blake Wheeler, Zach Bogosian and Perreault. Michael Hutchinson made 25 saves. Quick stopped 21 shots for the Kings, who got goals from Anze Kopitar, Marian Gaborik, Kyle Clifford and Justin Williams. The Kings suffered their third straight loss. Perreault put the puck in the net from in front at the 3:39 mark of the first period. Only 52 seconds later, Wheeler skated into the offensive zone above the right circle and found a streaking Little in the bottom part of the same circle for the quick goal. Wheeler made it 3-0 on the power play when he tried a center pass, but the puck deflected off the skate of Kings center Trevor Lewis and past Quick. Everyone individually has to step up, myself included, Kings defenseman Alec Martinez said. We all have to take a little more ownership in our game, and play Kings hockey. Im confident this team will be successful if we do that. If we keep on digging ourselves in a hole in the first period like weve been doing, and giving up as many goals as we have been, its going to be pretty difficult on us. LA got back in the contest with a pair of goals in a 1:27 span later in the first, both power play tallies. The Kings were awarded a two-man advantage due to penalties from Jim Slater (delay of game) and Adam Lowry (slashing). Kopitar scored on a rebound after Hutchinson stopped Doughtys one-timer from above the left circle. Williams then lit the lamp at the 15:58 mark off a loose puck in front. It looked as if Jeff Carter tied the game 3 1/2 minutes into the second period when he was left alone on a breakaway. His backhander went high and hit the bottom of the crossbar and came straight down onto the ice. Replay officials determined the puck never cross the goal line. The Kings deadlocked the game 1:29 into the third. Kopitars centering pass deflected off the skate of Winnipegs Toby Enstrom and right to Gaborik in front. Clifford gave LA a 4-3 lead with 7:35 remaining in regulation. Lewis sent a centering pass from the left side to Clifford, and his attempt deflected off the left skate of Jets defenseman Mark Stuart and past Hutchinson. Bogosian evened the game again with 5:56 left when his blast from above the right circle found its way through traffic. Kopitars blast in the high slot was deflected away with just over a minute left in OT. LA was given a power play in the final 31.5 seconds when Williams, who was cutting to the net, was held by Andrew Ladd. Game Notes Kings forward Tanner Pearson left the game late in the second period with a lower body injury after he was driven into the boards, legs-first by Jets defenseman Jay Harrison ... Kopitar and Doughty were named All-Stars Saturday, as was Jets defenseman Dustin Byfuglien ... The Kings have never lost a regulation game at home to the Winnipeg Jets/Atlanta Thrasher franchise (7-0-3) ... This is the first game between these two franchises that has gone to overtime and not ended in a goal by Winnipeg. The Kings are now 0-4-1 in overtime.

Campaigning for Carl I hadnt heard the expression "crafting a campaign" until Michael Davies of the excellent "Men In Blazers" podcast used it to describe his beloved Chelsea, and the manner in which Jose Mourinho engineered his Blues through the nitty gritty of a long Premiership season.  In the rigours of MLS, successful teams have managed their schedule carefully, and even though its early, Whitecaps coach Carl Robinson has already shown signs of recognizing the details of that process. Some might have been surprised Thursday when Robinson told TEAM 1040 radio in Vancouver that skipper Jay DeMerit had been left home to rest so early in the season. But for Robinson, the marathon is as grueling in March as it will be in September. Hes comfortable enough in his squad that well likely see more players left home for longer trips. Flying straight back to Vancouver right after the 0-0 draw with New England allowed players to get home on Saturday night and enjoy two full days off after what has been a taxing, air mile-accumulating couple of months.   From a point gathering perspective, the new Whitecaps boss has also exhibited some proactive substitutions and game management during critical moments in his first three matches. Pedro Morales was brought on in the 65th minute of season opener, which effectively killed the game off. At Chivas, Robinson brought on Kekuta Manneh with enough time to rescue a point. And in New England, with a point in his back pocket, he gave Gershon Koffie a long-awaited introduction which infused a tiring team with some bite and balance to lock down that first clean sheet of the season.   Crafting a campaign Those little decisions dont always work. But they did for Caleb Porter, the reigning MLS coach of the year with Portland. The well-travelled Timbers were a team that foraged for every point - especially away from home, where they didnt win a lot of games, but gathered enough draws (or avoided defeat enough) to help reach the Western Conference summit. Many lamented two points lost for Vancouver at an undermanned and unfairly disregarded Chivas team. Some even expected the Whitecaps to beat a New England squad that hadnt won, nor scored after two weeks. But in Carl Robinsons mind, his team earned a point despite a poor performance in LA, and a clean sheet after a nine-hour travel day against a desperate New England team stuck on no goals after two games. Maybe we should start calling the Whitecaps coach a "campaign" manager.

Granada goalkeeper Roberto Fernandez saved Morenos first two headers from corner kicks taken by Sergio Garcia, but the defender beat him on his third try after Garcia found Moreno unmarked at the near post in the 78th minute.

Rudy Gay made the tying basket in regulation and a 3-pointer in overtime that gave Sacramento the lead for good, and Fredette scored a career-high 24 points to help the Kings beat the Knicks 106-101 on Wednesday night. 49ers Super Bowl Jerseys . Curtis Davies and Robert Koren secured the victory with goals inside 35 minutes of the fifth-round replay against the second-tier side. GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Talib Zanna had 19 points and a career-high 21 rebounds to help Pittsburgh beat No. 15 North Carolina 80-75 in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament quarterfinals Friday. James Robinson also scored a career-best 19 points for the fifth-seeded Panthers (25-8), who used a dominating start to build a huge lead before having to hold off a late rally by the fourth-seeded Tar Heels (23-9). Pittsburgh led by 20 points with 7:22 left before UNCs frantic comeback behind Marcus Paige, who scored 20 of his 27 points after halftime before fouling out with 25.4 seconds left. UNC got it to 78-75 on Nate Britts jumper with 11.4 seconds left but couldnt complete the comeback. James Robinson knocked down two free throws to make it a two-possession game again right after Britts score, then Lamar Patterson rebounded a hurried 3-pointer by James Michael McAdoo with 4.3 seconds left to essentially seal it. Now, after a dominating performance in Thursdays second round and a bumbling-but-successful finish Friday, the Panthers will face sixth-ranked and top-seeded Virginia in Saturdays semifinals. Zanna, a 6-foot-9 fifth-year senior, came within two rebounds of tying the single-game tournament rebounding record that had stood since 1959. He fouled out with 1:03 left. Zanna had 10 offensive rebounds -- one shy of UNCs team total -- and helped Pitt control the boards while taking a 21-6 edge in second-chance points against a team that was third in the league in rebounnding margin for the regular season.dddddddddddd With all those point-blank extra looks off offensive rebounds, Pitt shot 52 per cent for the game. North Carolina spent all day trying to recover from a terrible start. It missed 16 of 19 shots and fell behind 25-8, though its late comeback at least gave them some hope of sticking around Greensboro a little longer. North Carolina shot 42 per cent, though much of that production came after Pitt had built a 61-41 lead on Josh Newkirks three-point play midway through the second half. The Panthers have won five of six to pull out of a three-game losing streak that started to threaten their NCAA tournament chances, with this ranking as probably their best of the year. Now the Tar Heels are suddenly struggling. The Tar Heels started 0-3 in the ACC and stood at 1-4 before running off 12 straight wins, including a home win against Pittsburgh, to earn a top-four seed and double-round bye that came with it. But UNC didnt play well in the final two games of the streak and lost at Duke to close the regular season last weekend, sending them into Greensboro coming off their first loss since Jan. 20. The rebounding trouble was particularly alarming for UNC considering it managed just 20 rebounds in last weekends loss at Cameron Indoor Stadium. During one demoralizing second-half stretch, Zanna tipped in offensive rebounds on consecutive possessions and had 17 rebounds to UNCs 16 with nearly 14 minutes still left. ' ' '

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Orlando Magic are the only team in the NBA who have reached the halfway point in the season. So, if its good enough for one team out of 30, then we shall declare it the midpoint of the 2014-15 NBA season. In doing so, lets examine where the awards would go if the campaign was drastically shortened, which, no one would cry a single tear about. MVP - JAMES HARDEN, HOUSTON ROCKETS Almost every other pundit has tabbed Steph Curry from the Golden State Warriors for this honor and I get it. Curry is the best player from the best team in the league, and, in the absence of a runaway contender, that formula is a solid means to an answer. However, I believe Harden has been a more valuable player for the Rockets. The statistics bare out pretty equal seasons. Harden is ahead in scoring, but Curry is up in assists. Pretty standard stuff since one is a shooting guard and the other is a point guard. (Although, I love that Harden is averaging a career-high 6.6 assists per game, which is second to LeBron James among non- point guards, and a near 90 percent clip from the foul line while leading the league in attempts.) Here are the three things that give Harden an edge for me: First, the Warriors are a much better, more complete team. Sounds like a plus for Curry, but Harden has done most of the heavy lifting in keeping the Rockets within four of the Warriors for the best record in the league. Curry is magnificent, but his team is loaded with two-way athletes in a manner that the Rockets are not. The overall talent is stronger in Golden State than in Houston, thus, making Hardens achievements this season more impressive. Second, when you are literally the butt of social media jokes about how horrendous a defender you are, it shows something to improve. Harden is not quite Gary Payton, but his defense has improved tremendously. Hes 12th in defensive rating and second in defensive win shares. Granted, those numbers changed with the arrival of Trevor Ariza and the continued solid defense from Dwight Howard, but Harden went from punch line to serviceable. The Rockets are third in opponents scoring and fourth in opponents field goal percentage. Last season, they were 23rd and seventh in those same categories. Harden isnt at the heart of the turnaround, but hes no longer weighing them down defensively like an anvil chained to the leg of a mob informant. Finally, during an 11-game stretch when Howard was down with a knee injury from mid-November to mid-December, Harden kept the Rockets afloat, going 8-3 in the process. During that stretch, Harden averaged 29 points and 6.1 assists per game. Curry hasnt had to deal with anything like that. Adversity shouldnt translate into automatic MVP victory. Its not the Oscars, where an actress will win if she plays an alcoholic, single-mother stripper, whose daughter is a piano prodigy and mom must find a way to work a third job to pay for a good teacher as well as trips abroad so the daughter can perform in recitals. Harden has kept the Rockets near the top of the league without a supporting cast like Currys. While Ariza has been a revelation, Howard is averaging nine- season lows in scoring, rebounding and blocked shots. Harden has taken a team, Ill admit, I had missing the playoffs, and got them the fourth-best record in the NBA. With less around him, I go Harden over Curry. COACH OF THE YEAR - STEVE KERR, GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS This is possibly the closest competition for an award I can remember. How could you not like Mike Budenholzer of the Atlanta Hawks? With a stunningly similar roster that finished under .500 last season, Bud has the Hawks atop the Eastern Conference by four games (Al Horford is really important, too). However, Kerr gets my nod for the simple fact that he made extraordinary coaching decisions that paid massive dividends. He started Harrison Barnes and Draymond Green over Andre Iguodala and David Lee. Kerr put two infants in there at the expense of 21 combined seasons, three All-Star appearances and $27 million in 2014-15 salary. And its worked unbelievably. His lineup changed meant the Warriors starters can switch almost any time without massive consequence. Kerr had the hard job of replacing Mark Jackson, who is not quite Phil Jackson, but had the eternal respect of his players. Kerr erased any doubts, and quickly. I will fault no one who votes Budenholzer, but I think Kerr has done just a little more. ROOKIE OF THE YEAR - ANDREW WIGGINS, MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES Since Jabari Parkers injury, Wiggins was destined to pull away some. He has, but he would have even if Parkers ACL didnt tear. Over the last 10 games, Wiggins is averaging 21 ppg. Granted, they are all Timberwolves losses, but Wiggins game is rounding out nicely. Remember, he started slowly at Kansas, then emerged. As the T-wolves continue to be terrible, Wiggins is getting a chance to develop greatly. Shabazz Mohammeds insertion into the starting lineup, thus moving Wiggins to the shooting guard, paid off handsomely for the No. 1 pick as well. DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR - DRAYMOND GREEN, GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS Know who leads the league in Defensive Rating and Defensive Win Shares? Draymond Green. Know how to calculate either of those? (Not rhetorical, please help me.) The Warriors rank first in opponents field goal percentage. Green is one integral piece of that team-oriented puzzle. Andrew Bogut is a top-five defensive big man. Kyle Thompson and Andre Iguodala are both upper echelon wing defenders. Steph Curry is underrated and leads the league in steals. But heres why I like Green so much for this award - hes a wonderful combination of all of those things and that versatility is what makes the Warriors a stout defense. Golden State can constantly switch anything because players like Green can cover all five positions. To have that kind of flexibility is huge. Green is the best demonstration of that. SIXTH MAN OF THE YEAR - LOU WILLIAMS, TORONTO RAPTORS Jamal Crawford of the Los Angeles Clippers, Ryan Anderson of the New Orleans Pelicans, Williams, Reggie Jackson of the Oklahoma City Thunder and Isaiah Thomas of the Phoenix Suns are all close in scoring. I feel like Williams and Thomas have done more for their teams in terms of helping them win games. I feel like Williams did more when DeMar DeRozan was gone to help Toronto keep pace. Thomas missed a few too many games. MOST IMPROVED PLAYER - JIMMY BUTLER, CHICAGO BULLS Ill say it - I hate this award. Its too hard to figure out the meaning of a three-word award. Too many people vote for someone who gets more playing time than the season before. Is that technically improvement or did that player just receive a mountains worth of more run? Or did the player improve so much during camp, that he forced his way into this new-found time? Ive always favored the player who improves, not the one who receives more playing time, although, Ive softened on that. There is a reasonable argument to be made that a player like an Alex Len of the Suns improved enough to crack the rotation. But, Im going with a player who didnt receive a bump in minutes. That wouldve been next to impossible considering Jimmy Butler shared the league lead in minutes per game last season. Hes first again this season. In literally ONE MORE MINUTE of playing time per game this campaign than last, here is the tale of Jimmy Butler: 2013-14 2014-15 Points per game: 13.1 20.9 Assists per game: 2.6 3.4 Rebounds per game: 4.9 6.2 3-point percentage: 28.3 34.2 field goal percentage: 39.7 46.4 free throw percentage: 76.9 83.0 Thats with ONE MORE MINUTE a game.

Jussi Jokinen, Dave Bolland, Derek MacKenzie, Sean Bergenheim and Dylan Olsen were also successful for Florida.The Panthers were down to their last shot five times and answered with a goal every time with the pressure on.The great thing is, I dont know how many times guys bailed me out where they had to score to keep it alive and they did every time. It was amazing, Luongo said.Bjugstad was able to gather himself — or at least take a deep breath — before his second attempt in the extended shootout.It helped.I kind of relaxed, took a deep breath and tried going in there with confidence, and it worked out, Bjugstad said.Bjugstad, who missed in the second round, held the puck, deked and then fired it past Holtby into the open net.Alex Ovechkin, Brooks Laich, Joel Ward, John Carlson and Brooks Orpik had shootout goals for the Capitals.MacKenzie scored in regulation for Florida, and Luongo made 23 saves.Troy Brouwer scored in regulation for Washington and Holtby stopped 28 shots. The Capitals have points in six straight games.Even though we lost, it was very entertaining, Brouwer said. We were having a little fun on the bench. We would have liked to come out on the other end of it. Anytime you go 20 shooters in a shootout, thats entertaining.The Capitals are 1-3 in shootouts this season.At first youre (thinkinng), Just get the shootout victory, but once it got to 15, 16, 17, actually it was quite fun, Capitals coach Barry Trotz said.dddddddddddd You just sort of lived in the moment and hope that you got the two points. Unfortunately, we didnt.But not everyone enjoyed the extended shootout, which lasted 17 minutes, 43 seconds.It definitely wasnt fun to be a part of it, Holtby said. Being on the end that I had to make a save numerous times when the game was on the line and I didnt; thats not a fun spot to be in.The Panthers are 4-0-1 in their last five home games. The win was only their second in their past 12 games against the Capitals. The Panthers lost Oct. 18 in a shootout at Washington.The previous record for the Panthers was 11 shootout rounds on Nov. 28, 2007, also against the Capitals.Florida is 3-4 in shootouts.That was exciting. Everybody loved that, especially with the way it ended, winning a game like that with Bjugstads goal, Panthers coach Gerard Gallant said.With the score tied 1-all at 3:08 of the third, it appeared the Capitals took the lead when the puck slid by Luongo and into the net. The goal was overruled after a video review because it was determined that Laich kicked in the puck with his left skate.The Panthers took a 1-0 lead when MacKenzie one-timed a rebound at 9:36 of the first. The Capitals tried to clear from behind the net and the puck went off the skate of Floridas Scottie Upshall and out in front, where MacKenzie beat Holtby on the glove side.The Capitals tied it on Brouwers power-play goal in the second. Alex Ovechkin passed from the left circle across to Brouwer in the slot. His wrist shot beat Luongo on the glove side at 14:35 for his ninth goal of the season.I think we made some history tonight, and the chances of that happening again are one in a million, Trotz said.NOTES: Holtby made his 13th consecutive start for the Capitals. ... Panthers defenceman Dylan Olsen played his 100th NHL game. ... Upshall and Aleksander Barkov returned to the Florida lineup after missing nine and six games, respectively. ' ' '

PARKER, Colo. -- Instead of seeing their lead disappear at the Solheim Cup, the Europeans saw it only cut in half. They owed their slender advantage to a hole-in-one by Anna Nordqvist and a half-point from out of nowhere. Nordqvist crashed a 7-iron on the 175-yard 17th into the pin, then the hole, to give Europe its only win in Saturday mornings alternate-shot matches. It was the highlight of a topsy-turvy stretch of golf on the back nine that ended with Europe holding a 6 1/2-5 1/2 lead over the United States. "It was just an unbelievable shot," Nordqvist said after she and Caroline Hedwall beat Jessica Korda and Morgan Pressel 2 and 1. "It was the right shot at the right time." Pressel, who watched her dreams of a U.S. Open title disappear in 2005 when Birdie Kim holed out from a greenside bunker up the road at Cherry Hills, saw another one slip away cruelly in Colorado. "Are you kidding me?" she said on the tee box as she watched the shot go in. The Americans were feeling the same way in the days third match after letting a half-point get away. Brittany Lincicome missed a short putt on No. 17 that would have clinched a win against Caroline Masson and Catriona Matthew. Moving to No. 18, Matthew holed a 6-footer for birdie to pull into a tie with Lincicome and Lizette Salas, who had led since the second hole but couldnt close it out. "I feel like I was not putting good," Lincicome said. "We had so many chances and Lizette played so good today, and just a couple of 5-footers that needed to go in just didnt." It wasnt all bad news for the Americans. Brittany Lang and Michelle Wie teamed for a 2-and-1 victory over Suzann Pettersen and Beatriz Recari. The victory improved Wie to 5-0-1 when she plays in the Solheim Cup as a captains pick. The Americans were 2 down at the turn but went 1 up over the next three holes, highlighted by a 30-foot birdie putt that dropped for Lang on No. 10. "Lang was a superstar today," Wie said. The United States other point came from Stacy Lewis and Paula Creamer, who beat Azahara Munoz and Karin Icher 1 up in the days most tumultuous match. The Europeans won four straight holes to go from 4 down to even heading into No. 15. They fell behind on the next hole, then drew even again on the 17th. Europe appeared to have the advantage on No. 18 when Lewis smothered her approach shot into the brush and trees left of the green. But Icher, playing out of a bunker about 50 yards in front of the green, thinned a shot that got stuck in a yucca plant. All Creamer needed was to chip the ball back in the vicinity of the green and the Europeans, who had taken a drop, then hit a mediocre shot short of the green and conceded the match. "They rallied on the back nine, made a bunch of birdie putts," Lewis said. "They made us make putts. We had to play some golf today." The afternoon best-ball pairings looked like this: Jodi Ewart-Shadoff and Charley Hull against Creamer and Lexi Thompson; Munoz and Carlota Ciganda against Gerina Piller and Angela Stanford; Hedwall and Masson against Wie and Korda; and Recari and Icher against Pressel and Cristie Kerr. American captain Meg Mallon was hoping the two late-morning victories would help the United States pick up steam in the afternoon. "It was very nerve-racking, an unbelievable turn of events," Mallon said. "Watching a ball go in the hole like that, then to watch some of the other matches finish the way they did, was a great momentum turn for the U.S." ZaDarius Smith Super Bowl Jersey .

Three days after falling to Hamilton, Abbotsford scored three goals in 53 seconds en route to a convincing 5-1 win over the Bulldogs Saturday in American Hockey League play.LAS VEGAS - Lucas "Bebe" Nogueira, the Raptors other young Brazilian prospect, prefaces each conversation he has using the same disclaimer. "My English is not so good," hell tell you, before speaking nearly perfect English for as long as youre willing and able to listen. All eyes have been on his intriguing countryman, Bruno Caboclo, here in Las Vegas for the NBAs Summer League but unlike his quiet 18-year-old teammate, Nogueira is not the least bit shy. The only thing bigger than his personality is his hair. The Raptors acquired the seven-foot centre from Atlanta last month, a year after he was selected with the 16th overall pick and famously attempted to balance a Celtics hat on top of his trademark afro. Hair aside, what should you know about him? Nogueira has you covered... "Im a happy guy, I like to smile," said the 21-year-old, appropriately wearing a big smirk across his face. "I think you should be happy everyday because you have just one life." It doesnt take long to pick up on Nogueiras unique spirit, its refreshing in the pressure cooker that is professional basketball. "Its contagious, infectious," coach Dwane Casey said of Nogueiras personality. "Hes sharp and witty, which is a good thing in this league because its such a frustration-filled league and it can get you down and you cant let it happen as a young kid. Youve got to learn, bounce back and get ready for the next play." Asked about his perspective and approach, things that have helped him stand out early in his Raptors tenure, Nogueira credits his upbringing. He grew up in Rio de Janeiro. He was adopted. His family has supported him and has taught him positive values. His siblings are much older, his brother is 38, his sister 40. Hes the youngest, hence the nickname, Bebe. "It started in Brazil," Nogueira said of the moniker, insisting he has no preference between that and his first name, Lucas. "My family, they called me Bebe. I grew up with Bebe all my life. I dont care [if you call me that] because everyone says it, my mom says it." Nogueira was in Atlanta when he was told he had been traded to the Raptors. Initially, he was shocked, then confused and a little upset. Why would the Hawks acquire his rights on draft night only to give up on him a year later, he wondered. Generally, it takes young players a few years to pick up on a reality Nogueira was becoming aware of before playing a single game. The NBA is a business. Seeking cap space, the Hawks were eager to shed the contract of Lou Williams and acquire John Salmons non-guaranteed deal. Nogueira, a player Masai Ujiri and the Raptors liked in the 2013 draft, was the sweetener. Although the Raptors expect to have Nogueira on the roster this coming season, theyre still working on a buyout agreement with his team in Spain, where he played last year and is still under contract. But Nogueira knows better than to get his hopes up after being welcomed to Atlanta a year ago. Hes hopeful but is wisely holding off on the celebration, despite all the messages hes received over Twitter, welcoming him to Toronto this past month. "We the north? No, you the north. Im not, yet," he joked. Eventually hell join the Raptors and, like Caboclo, the long seven-footer will become part of the contingency plan for a team with winning aspirations in the short-term and a keen eye on the future. Nogueira has been playing professionally since he was 15-years-old and has helped ease the transition for Caboclo both on and off the floor, relaying information to him in his native Portuguese.dddddddddddd "If you could transfer some of that youthful enthusiasm to Bruno, and hell get that, [it would be great]," Casey said. "Thats one thing we love about Lucas." The Raptors are happy to have him but - again, like Caboclo - theyre tempering immediate expectations, understanding that he still has a ways to go as a player. "I need to see more to really try to project [how good he can be]," Raptors assistant and Summer League head coach Jesse Mermuys said of Nogueira, who missed most of the teams mini-camp in Las Vegas nursing a minor calf injury. "Hes done some good things and hes had some bad games." Through three games in his second stint at Summer League - he played for the Hawks last year - Nogueira is averaging 6.0 points and 5.0 rebounds in 19.0 minutes per contest. His defensive instincts, while inconsistent, are promising and hes looked competent as a finisher in the pick-and-roll. "Hes going to have to come in and compete in training camp," Casey cautioned. "I dont see any reason why he couldnt [make the team]. It just depends on how much stronger he gets before October. Hes got a long period of time to do it. You cant teach his wingspan." Between he and Caboclo, the Raptors have over 15-feet of wingspan coming in, but the initial focus for both will be to put on muscle and get stronger. "Soon Ill look like Dwight Howard," Nogueira joked, speaking about the eclectic variety of eatery hell have at his disposal in Toronto. Even if he breaks camp with the Raptors, its unlikely that hell crack Caseys rotation in his rookie season but the sooner he develops, the better. Toronto could use a player with his upside as a rim protector. "I wish I could jump like that," Nogueira said while watching Clevelands No. 1 pick Andrew Wiggins play on Monday. He may not have Wiggins-like hops but hes no slouch. The centre averaged 1.6 blocks in just 16.6 minutes per game in the Spanish ACB league last year. "Hes got a long way to go," new teammate Kyle Lowry said. "And hes got a big fella in [Jonas Valanciunas], who hell get better with everyday in practice and get strong and they can learn from each other." Nogueira knows Valanciunas, having played against him at the 2011 FIBA Under-19 World Championship. The newest Raptor raved about JVs skill set but remembers trying to get under his skin. "Lucas may have gotten under his skin, but Jonas kicked his ass," a Raptors staffer joked. Nogueira was fifth in rebounds per game and second in blocks while Valanciunas was awarded MVP of that tournament. With Valanciunas gregarious personality and Nogueiras jovial nature, the Raptors locker room should be a lively one for years to come. Nogueira has spent just one day in Toronto, flying to Canada directly after learning about the trade before heading out West to work out with his new teammates. He hasnt had much time to process where his journey has taken him, and wont get ahead of himself before the next step becomes official, but the Raptors young Brazilian prospect continues to smile and look forward to what appears to be a promising future. "The NBA only has 450 jobs for seven billion [people]," he said after crunching the numbers in his head. "I have one job, so I dont have [a] reason to stay sad. I had bad moments in my life but everybody [has] bad moments so I think, okay, I can be sad sometimes but 95 percent [of the time] I want to be happy, because I feel blessed." ' ' '
