Post record. The side has conce Odpowiedz z cytatem
CLEVELAND - As the old saying goes, if you play with fire, youre going to get burned. Ferguson Jenkins Jersey . Dwane Casey, who has used the phrase as a cautionary tale after lethargic starts of the recent past, came just short of saying I told you so Tuesday evening. His team had been getting away with it, far more often than any team should. Yes, theyre a resilient bunch and that was the case again in Cleveland as they clawed back from a 21-point deficit - even taking a brief fourth-quarter lead - but its been masking the underlying issue. Theyre an open-faced sandwich, missing the top bun. "You cant play in this league that way and expect to come back each and every night," Casey said after Torontos 102-100 loss to the Cavaliers. "Its bit us more than weve won, it feels like." "Until we fix that, among us, among ourselves, then its going to be an uphill battle every night." For the second time in three days, the Raptors trailed by nine after the first quarter, allowing another team with a losing record, also missing their best player, to shoot above 52 per cent to open the game. The start was eerily similar to Sundays, at home to Atlanta, lacking effort, focus and purpose on both ends of the floor. Even without injured point guard Kyrie Irving, Cleveland killed the visiting Raptors with speed and precision, exposing a reoccurring hole in their interior defence by darting into the paint at will. The comeback was inevitable. Its what they do. Down by 21 early in the third, Toronto staged a 21-9 run to close out the quarter. Kyle Lowry - running back and forth from the locker room all night, battling an upset stomach - scored half of his team-high 22 points in the frame. Greivis Vasquez would give the Raptors their first lead since the opening minutes, draining a three-pointer midway through the fourth before reality set in. "I think everybodys energy was low from having to come back," Lowry said. From that moment on they hit just one of their final 10 shots and on the last possession, down only two, they failed to even get one off. It was a play they had just run with success. Amir Johnson was looking for Lowry to turn the corner, but he was cut off. Instead, Vasquez took the handoff and, trying to spin right, towards the bucket, he lost his footing. "It was me going to my weak hand and I lost my balance, stepped kind of weird," said Vasquez, who scored 16 points of Torontos bench. "I turned the ball over. Ill take responsibility. Im not going to run away. Im a man." A noble gesture but, as Casey pointed out, its not the reason for the loss. "Thats not the game-decider," the Raptors coach said. "The game was decided the way we approached the first quarter." "Its easy to get up for OKC, its easy to get up for Miami, its easy to get up for Indiana but the teams that are not in the playoff picture, they are playing for something, too," he continued. "Theyre playing for pride, which is probably a little bit more dangerous than guys trying to save minutes and save themselves for the playoffs." Theres a lesson to be learned from this loss and it shouldnt take long to figure out whether or not its been absorbed. The Raptors - now the Easts fourth seed, leapfrogged by the Bulls with Tuesdays defeat - will travel to Boston in the second night of a back-to-back and first game of a home-and-home set with the Celtics, another scrappy team looking to play spoiler. "Weve got to get the mindset of being the hunter instead of the hunted because," Casey added. "Thats how we got where we are, being a desperate team, a hungry team and not believing the press clippings or where we are in the standings." Birthday blues Although Lowry would have preferred to celebrate his 28th birthday with a win, the Raptors point guard recorded his 18th double-double with 10 assists to go along with his 22 points. Lowry extended his career-high streak of 19 or more points to 10 games and also became the first Raptor to score 20-plus in eight straight since Chris Bosh did so in 2010. Amir passes VC on blocks list With his third-quarter swat on Spencer Hawes, Johnson recorded his 416th block as a member of the Raptors, passing Vince Carter for second on the teams all-time block shots list. Johnson, who had 12 points and nine rebounds on Tuesday, still has a ways to go to catch Bosh, topping the franchise list with 600 blocks. Patterson nearing a return Patrick Patterson, who has missed 10 straight games with an ulnar collateral sprain in his right elbow, was reassessed on Monday and is headlong well, the team revealed before Tuesdays game in Cleveland. Although hes been cleared for contact, theres still no timetable for his return to game action. "Its a lot up to the medical staff and when they feel he can go," Casey said. "Its one of those things where if he gets hit in the wrong way it could be trouble for a lot longer so thats why they want to make sure its well enough." The stat The Raptors fell just short of matching their largest comeback of the season. They last overcame a 21-point deficit in their home win over Dallas on Jan. 22. Toronto hasnt had multiple wins in which theyve trailed by 20 or more points in the same season since 2004-05. The quote "Weve just got to understand what were playing for," Vasquez said. "Weve got a big one tomorrow [in Boston]. Its a must-win because were actually playing for something. If you dont get up for that youve got to get your gas up. Weve just got to be motivated, man. This is crunch time. This is important for us. Tomorrows a must-win, no matter what. No excuses." Russell Wilson Jersey . His brother — Red Lake chiropractor Richard Radford — is en route to Sochi to cheer on his younger brother. "Ive been getting texts from Eric and he just says the atmosphere is amazing, its special,” he said. Nolan Ryan Jersey .Hoffenheim forward Anthony Modeste opened the scoring on a counterattack in the 15th minute, shooting though Jaroslav Drobnys legs after Lewis Holtby lost the ball in midfield. . - Veteran Kings defenceman Robyn Regehr, sidelined since Game 1 of the Anaheim series, says hes close to returning.FRANKFURT - Bayern Munich domination of the Bundesliga is so complete that Pep Guardiolas team could clinch the title even earlier than last season, when it sealed the championship with seven matches to spare.Undefeated Bayern is already nine points clear of Wolfsburg and 15 points ahead of third-place Bayer Leverkusen. Already assured of spending the winter break in the lead, Bayern next hosts Freiburg in the midweek 16th round and could increase the margin.Elsewhere, Wolfsburg travels to troubled Borussia Dortmund, which desperately needs a victory.Here are some things to know about the Bundesliga round to be played on Tuesday and Wednesday:___MORE RECORDS?With the opposition fading away, all that seems left for Bayern to do in the Bundesliga is to chase its own records.If Bayern wins the final two matches before the winter break, against Freiburg and Mainz, it will end the first half of the season with 45 points, one more than its record from 2005.And if Bayern concedes fewer than four goals in the next two matches, it will break another record. The side has conceded only three goals so far in 15 matches. The record for best defence is seven goals conceded in the first half of a season.___FREIBURG SURPRISE?Freiburg is a small, well-run team that manages to hang on in the Bundesliga despite losing its best players at the end of every season. Coach Christian Streich is a clever tactician who knows how to get the best out of a squad with no stars.Freiburg is one of the three teams that managed to play Bayern to a draw last season. Streichs team sits 15th after as many matches this seasson. Robinson Chirinos Jersey. We played two bad matches. The others were quite good, Streich said after Saturdays 0-0 draw at home with Hamburg. Freiburg has lacked fortune and efficiency in front of goal.___DORTMUNDS FALLBorussia Dortmunds revival lasted only one match and the 2011 and 2012 champion is in danger again after losing 1-0 at Hertha Berlin.Staying true to the curse of misfortune following the club this season, it lost playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan for six weeks due to a thigh injury.Wolfsburg will be looking to rebound from a 1-1 draw with promoted Paderborn. Dortmund has lost a league-high nine games, and has only once managed not to lose after falling behind 1-0 in nine matches.___POST-WORLD CUP SLUMPKevin Grosskreutz is the latest member of Germanys World Cup squad to lose his place in Dortmunds starting line-up. Grosskreutz wasnt even in the squad for the match in Berlin.Roman Weidenfeller, Erik Durm and Matthias Ginter already had been benched. But Grosskreutz is a special case. Dortmund-born Grosskreutz had played in 232 of 255 possible matches for Dortmund.Coach Juergen Klopp said this was a one-time decision.___CHINA PLAYER FOR WOLFSBURG?Wolfsburg is about to sign a Chinese player, with director Klaus Allofs saying only a few details remain to be cleared before Xizha Zhang joins the team. The China midfielder watched Wolfsburgs 1-1 draw with Paderborn and would become the fourth Chinese player to play in the Bundesliga.Wolfsburg believes Xixzhe can make it in the Bundesliga but the move will also help the clubs marketing activities in Asia and China, Allofs said.
