TORONTO -- Toronto Raptors head coach Dwane Casey knows his starters can not play the entire game. Cheap Celtics Throwback Jerseys . But after Sundays loss to the Denver Nuggets, he probably wishes they could. The Nuggets
reserves came off the bench to outscore their Raptors counterparts 72-16 as
Denver pulled away in the fourth quarter for a comfortable 112-98 win before
16,290 fans at Air Canada Centre. "Our bench has got to give us something,"
Casey told reporters after Toronto (6-10) lost its third straight. "Our guys
(starters) cant play for 48 (minutes), so weve got to get production from our
bench. "The guys coming in have got to develop a toughness, a resilience of
getting stops. And, it starts on the defensive end. In the second half, they
shot it well but we didnt make them feel us." The 72 bench points conceded is
the worst in Raptors history, exceeding the 69 points surrendered to the Chicago
Bulls in a loss on Jan. 25, 2006. Diminutive guard Nate Robinson led the way for
Denver (10-6) with 23 points off the bench. The 5-foot-9 veteran hit five
three-pointers on the afternoon, including back-to-back shots from beyond the
arc with just over two minutes to go, as the Nuggets coasted to their sixth
straight win. In addition to Robinsons team-high 23 points, three other Denver
players had double-digit point totals off the bench, including Timofey Mozgov
with 16, Darrell Arthur with 14 and Jordan Hamilton with 10. Rudy Gay led the
way for the Raptors with 23 points. Jonas Valanciunas had 18 points and 11
rebounds. Finishing 1-3 on their longest home stand of the season, the Raptors
now head out West for the next week, visiting the Golden State Warriors, Phoenix
Suns and Los Angeles Lakers. "Personally, Im frustrated. Period," said Toronto
guard DeMar DeRozan, who finished with 17 points. "Weve just got to figure it
out and turn it around on the road. "Its correctable but we shouldnt have to
keep doing the same thing over and over before we realize that we are doing
something wrong. We have to understand what were doing out the gate and correct
it." Casey shuffled his line-up, inserting Tyler Hansbrough into the starting
rotation in place of a struggling Amir Johnson. And, the initial results were
positive, as the Raptors came out flying, opening up a 15-point lead eight
minutes into the first quarter on the strength of a swarming defence and some
deadly accurate field goal shooting. DeRozan hit his first four shots and Lowry
sunk his initial two attempts from beyond the three-point arc. But the Nuggets
went on a 13-4 run over the final 3:56 of the first quarter to cut the lead to
31-25. Denver led 47-45 at the half and had a 76-72 lead after a see-saw third
quarter that featured four lead changes. In addition to lamenting his bench
being outplayed, Casey also said the Raptors didnt pass the ball enough. "We had
only 18 assists, they had 29," he said. "And, thats where it starts in the
offensive end. "We talked about the defensive end but the offensive end, weve
got to start trusting the pass." Gay said despite three straight losses, the
Raptors are not getting down on themselves. "If we want to win, we have to make
the right adjustments," he said. "Lets not get crazy," Gay said when asked if
there might need to be some dramatic shake-up with the team. "They hit some
tough shots and we made them hit some tough shots. We made them move the ball
around, which is our defensive principle. We cant look at ourselves like we are
just terrible. "We made some strides today but we can be better." Cheap R.J. Hunter Jersey . This week, topics cover the World Series champion Red Sox, John Farrell and what to look forward
to this off-season. Authentic John Havlicek Celtics Jersey . In the opening game of his fourth-round match at the U.S. Open, the owner of 17
major titles got passed at the net twice, sailed a backhand long, then missed
two forehands to get broken. OAKLAND, Calif. -- Nate Robinson has played for
seven teams, so beating one of them is no longer a rare occurrence. Still, it
never gets old. Robinson scored 14 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter and
the streaky Denver Nuggets outlasted the Golden State Warriors 123-116 on
Wednesday night. "Ive embraced it," said Robinson, in his first season with the
Nuggets. "I keep a journal every game. I write to myself and just reflect on my
career. Its helped me cope with not getting the contract that I want or playing
time or being on one team." Wilson Chandler and Ty Lawson each scored 22 points,
and J.J. Hickson grabbed a season-high 24 rebounds to help give Oakland native
and first-year Nuggets coach Brian Shaw a victory in his hometown. But Robinsons
latest return to Golden State, where he played 51 games during the 2011-12
season, overshadowed Shaw late. The 29-year-old reserve guard finished 9-of-12
shooting, including 6 of 8 in the fourth quarter. "For me, my home is the NBA no
matter what team I play for," Robinson said. "Ill always play the same way. Ill
always play the right way, try to play to win and Im going to play with my heart
every night, no matter how many minutes I play and how many teams I play for. If
I could be the first player to ever play for every team in the league, I want to
do it." David Lee had 28 points and 11 rebounds, and Stephen Curry scored 24 for
the well-rested Warriors, who took the lead with 1:13 remaining before the
Nuggets pulled away again. Golden State, which had won 11 of 12, hadnt played
since beating Boston on Friday night. "Thats an excuse. I would say its because
we were bad," Warriors coach Mark Jackson said. "Defensively, thats as bad as it
gets." Both teams pushed the pace from the start in a back-and-forth game with
incredible scores and few stops. For most of the fourth, Robinson stole the
show. He made consecutive 3-pointers, a driving layup, a long jumper and a
step-back shot during a scintillating display of offence that put Denver ahead
113-105 with 3:44 to play. "Hes a streaky player, and when hes on a good streak,
hes as good as anybody in the league," Shaw said. The Warriors kept on coming,
though, getting contributions from all over -- Curry hit a 3-pointer, Lee
followed with a dunk and Klay Thompson made a pull-up jumper to bring the
Warriors within one. Cheap Bill Russell Jersey. After Chandler made a pair of free throws, Lee went 3 of 4 from the line to give Golden State a
116-115 lead. Hickson came back with a running shot that put the Nuggets back in
front, then stole the ball from Curry and converted a layup on the other end
while getting fouled to finish with 13 points. He missed the free throw, but
Denver got the rebound. And after Lawson missed a jumper, Hickson grabbed
another board. Lawson hit both free throws to give the Nuggets a 121-116 lead.
Then Curry missed an open 3-pointer following a timeout to send most of the
sellout crowd of 19,596 to the exits. "Theyre a team that can really score the
basketball," Lee said, "so to put yourself in a hole really makes it tough." The
two-faced Nuggets showed their better side in a rematch of last seasons
first-round playoff series won by Golden State. Denver won seven straight from
Nov. 21 to Dec. 3 and five in a row before losing at Utah on Monday night. The
Nuggets also had an eight-game losing streak from Dec. 17 to Jan. 1. Golden
States bench was short-handed after the team sent struggling backup guard
Toney Douglas to the Miami Heat in a three-team trade. The Warriors acquired
Jordan Crawford and reserve MarShon Brooks from the Boston Celtics, but neither
player was available in time to face the Nuggets. Golden State had enough
trouble with its starting unit in this one. The Nuggets shot 62 per cent in the
first half to take a 65-58 lead. The Warriors shot 48 per cent before the break
-- a solid performance on most nights -- but never could slow down Denver.
Golden State tightened up defensively at the beginning of the third to briefly
go ahead. Denver ended the quarter on an 11-2 run capped by Evan Fourniers
half-court heave as time expired to carry a 91-82 lead into the fourth. NOTES:
Warriors general manager Bob Myers said backup centre Jermaine ONeal is about
two to three weeks from returning from right wrist surgery. Myers also said
fellow big man Festus Ezeli, out all season recovering from knee surgery, will
likely be out until at least March. ... In addition to long-term injuries to
Danilo Gallinari (left knee) and JaVale McGee (left leg), the Nuggets were
without forward Anthony Randolph (left ankle) and Andre Miller (indefinite
leave). Wholesale Jerseys China ' ' '
