TORONTO - An overtime game in New York, a long wait at an airport, a middle-of-the-night flight back home to Toronto.Less than 24 hours after beating the Knicks on the road, the Raptors had every excuse in the world to lose to the Orlando Magic on Monday night, said coach Dwane Casey.Thats what I told them at halftime, he said.But, as has become their habit this season, the Raptors used a strong second half to defeat the Magic 95-82, behind 18 points from Lou Williams and 17 points and eight assists from Kyle Lowry. I dont want to give our guys an excuse but we get in at 2 in the morning, come through Customs; we have to sit at the gate in New York forever — I dont know if they do that on purpose or what — and then we get in late, back-to-back, overtime game, Casey said.But in the second half we found our voice, our energy, our spirit. . . we found our defensive mojo in the second half.Amir Johnson finished with 11 points, while Patrick Patterson chipped in with 10 for the East-leading Raptors (19-6), who played their ninth game without injured all-star DeMar DeRozan.Tobias Harris had 18 points to top Orlando (10-17), while Ben Gordon had 16. The victory was Torontos 10th straight over Orlando.It wasnt the prettiest of victories for Toronto, which needed overtime in Sundays ugly 95-90 win over the Knicks. But on Monday the Raptors turned an eight-point deficit late in the first half to a 71-65 lead heading into the fourth quarter. A three-pointer by Channing Frye cut Torontos lead to just two points with 9:28 to play. But the Raptors play their best basketball in fourth quarters at the Air Canada Centre, and by the time Greivis Vasquez drained a floating jumper with six minutes to play, the Raptors were up by 14 in front of another capacity crowd of 19,800 fans.Energy, Patterson said, on the difference in the second half. In that first half we couldnt use (Sunday) night as an excuse. Although guys were a little bit tired and exhausted, we had a great motivational speech in the locker-room at halftime and then guys just came out and stepped it up.It started off with Kyle being the leader that he is and it just carried over to everyone else.A driving layup by Williams gave Toronto a 16-point lead — their largest of the game — with 3:54 to play. The Magic would chip away at the deficit, pulling to within 10, but that only served to fire up Lowry, who drilled a three with 1:47 to go, putting the game out of reach and securing Toronto its third straight victory.Orlando hasnt beaten Toronto since March of 2012.Lowry admitted the night of travel hadnt been easy.I wouldnt use anything as an excuse but it took us awhile to get back, Lowry said. Its part of the league, we know were always going to take long trips on back-to-backs, so its all good.DeRozan made his first appearance on the bench since he tore his groin tendon, sitting alongside the assistant coaches dressed in a light grey suit.Orlando guard Evan Fournier played the second half with stitches in his lip after taking an errant elbow from Tyler Hansbrough in the second quarter that left him down on the floor for several minutes. A shaky Fournier was helped to the locker-room where his lip was stitched up. The Raptors were outshot 49 per cent to 45, but outrebounded their visitors 39-36.Boy they made it tough on us (in the second half), said Magic coach Jacque Vaughn. What did we score, 30 points in the half? Youre not going to win too many games that way unless they score 29.The Raptors rallied from an 11-point fourth-quarter deficit to pull out a 104-100 home win when these two teams played on Nov. 11. Orlando had dropped 33 points on Toronto in the first quarter of that game, and Casey warned his players to beware of another quick start.They ambushed us here last game, they came out shooting the three, attacking our feet, running at us, they had 30 transition points in the first half, Casey said.The Raptors led for most of the first quarter, taking a 10-point lead on a Lowry pullup jumper with 3:38 to play. The Magic fought back and dunk by Elfrid Payton cut the Raptors lead to 28-25 going into the second.Orlando continued its run in the second, holding Toronto without a field goal for more than six minutes. The Magic led 52-44 at halftime.Lowry came out of the break on a mission, leading his team in scoring (eight points), boards (4) and assists (5) in a third quarter that saw Toronto outscore their visitors 27-13 to lead by six going into the fourth.The Raptors have Tuesday off practice, then host the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday.Its going to be good, Lowry said. Well take advantage and get our rest in, and start thinking about Brooklyn.The Raptors follow their date with the Nets with a game in Detroit on Friday. Theyre back home to host the New York Knicks on Sunday then play six straight on the road — a two-week break from the ACC while the world junior hockey championships are in town.

Especially after he got ejected. "How many innings was that?" he wondered. http://www.authenticseahawksstoreonline ... ns-Jersey/. Cruz set the tone with a two-run homer in the first inning, and Baltimore scored eight times in the eighth to pull away for a 12-3 victory in Game 1. The major league leader with 40 homers during the regular season, Cruz added an RBI single to his early blast off Max Scherzer.

Lauzon rushed for 42 yards on 15 carries for the Vert et Or (2-3) while quarterback Jeremi Roch completed 19-of-32 passes for 251 yards and one interception. Alexandre Aube scored the other touchdown for Sherbrooke.SHEFFIELD, England - Christian Eriksen added a late goal to his sublime early free kick to help Tottenham scrape a 2-2 draw with third-tier Sheffield United on Wednesday and secure a place in the League Cup final against Chelsea.Tottenham advanced 3-2 on aggregate and will play in its first cup final in six years.Spurs were a goal ahead, through Eriksens pinpoint free kick into the top corner in the 28th minute, and coasting when substitute Che Adams scored in the 77th and 79th minutes.With the score at 2-1 on the night and 2-2 on aggregate, extra time was looming at a snowy Bramall Lane but Eriksen ran on to a through-ball from Harry Kane and coolly slotted a left-foot finish into the corner in the 88th.Its a big relief on everyones faces, Eriksen said.The final takes place at Wembley Stadium on March 1 and is a repeat of the 2008 showpiece match, which Spurs won 2-1. Chelsea will also be out to avenge a 5-3 loss to Tottenham in the Premier League last month.United surprisingly beat Premier League teams West Ham and Southampton on the way to the last four, emulating its run to the FA Cup semifinals last season and earning the club a reputation as a cup specialist and so-called giant-killer.However, the teaam managed by former England forward Nigel Clough looked out of it when Eriksen curled his free kick across the goalkeeper and in off the far post, adding another spectacular goal to his collection this season.ddddddddddddIts one of the top free kicks Ive taken, the Denmark playmaker said.The 18-year-old Adams double — only minutes after he came on as Uniteds last substitute — changed the dynamic of the game and Spurs nearly went behind on aggregate when United midfielder Lewis Reed shot just over the crossbar.Im incredibly proud of the players, Clough said. It was just a bit of quality that made the difference. Eriksens two goals were superb. Eriksens two goals tonight were superbIt was the fourth time Eriksen has scored a goal in the 88th minute or later this season. The first three won league games for Spurs and the fourth has sent them to an eighth League Cup final.Its 1-1 between us this season, Eriksen said of Tottenhams record against Chelsea. Its a decider if you like and theres no better place for it than Wembley.I am incredibly proud of the players and what they gave over the two games. It was just a bit of quality that made the difference. Eriksens two goals tonight were superb.
